The viewers of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' got to see Whitney Thore taking a chance in love after she met Chase Severino. The two met each other through a mutual friend and since the first time they saw each other, sparks were flying between them. As the season progressed, viewers got to see their love blossom into something serious and to the extent that the two met each other's parents as well.

While one might think that everything was happening too fast, in Whitney's defense, she was always ready to find that one true love and start a family of her own. Now, with a wedding on the way, one would expect that the two have planned out the perfect life for themselves. However, one cannot ignore the existence of a person who has had more influence on Whitney than Chase himself. 

This person is none other than Buddy Bell, Whitney's best friend for decades and not to forget, her crush once upon a time. Before Chase showed up in the picture, fans had their fingers crossed and were waiting for the moment when the two would finally get together. Their one-night stand and the romantic kiss that they shared had everyone convinced that the announcement about their relationship was not far behind. 

Unfortunately, it happened to be a dream that was soon shattered. While Whitney confessed that there was a time when she had a crush on Buddy, he hinted that he never shared the same feelings. Even though Whitney now seems to have moved on, a few moments between Buddy and Whitney has everyone thinking that there is still a spark between them. 

For instance, one could not help notice how Whitney and Buddy were so attached. It was something that even Chase could not overlook. Speaking to the camera he explained that there was a possibility that the two were co-dependent on each other.  There had also been several occasions where Buddy and Whitney's relationship made Chase uncomfortable. 

If this wasn't enough, fans were quick to point out the closeness Buddy and Whitney shared. Many thought that it was not right of Whitney to get so close and comfortable around Buddy knowing that she had a boyfriend. Many were upset that she chose to hug and lie on his lap knowing that Chase would not appreciate it. 

Looking at all these instances, some even wondered if the relationship between Chase and Whitney  was fake. All these instances had everyone convinced that ultimately, Buddy is the person that Whitney would end up with and they were too blind to not see till now. 

"Whitney won’t truly be happy unless she and Buddy take a chance on a real relationship. They love each other and no one makes her laugh like he does," one wrote. Another comment read, "Whitney needs to admit she’s in love with Buddy and stop the charades or let that man go."

While another echoed similar thoughts and wrote, "My favorite moment was Buddy acting like a fool with his comments to annoy Chase and Ryan. I couldn’t help but giggle! I wonder when he will realize he is in love with Whitney? Just sayin’"
