'My Big Fat Fabulous Life': Whitney Way Thore slammed by fans for 'manipulating' Buddy Bell to move in with her
Whitney was seen bawling in front of Buddy after reading out the kind of messages she receives on dating apps from men. This was when he decided to properly move in with her and fans are calling her out for it
The current season of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' is completely focused on Whitney Way Thore's breakup and the aftermath of it. She's been seen and heard crying over her ex-fiancé Chase Severino who not just cheated on her but also got another woman pregnant. During the previous season, Whitney had spoken about her wanting babies someday with Chase who declined saying that he doesn't see himself having kids in his future. This was followed by the cheating scandal and Chase owned up to his mistakes and decided to pursue a relationship with his baby momma whose identity is under wraps. He also met Whitney to apologize for his misdoings and she broke down further watching him be all excited about his new relationship and his baby. These were the things she wanted and she cried about Chase getting all the joys she wished for and that in the end, she ended up with nothing.
Buddy Bell, her platonic best friend forever aka quarantine husband had moved in with her to emotionally support her after she suffered panic attacks post the breakup. Things were getting better for Whitney and Buddy decided that he wanted to move out of Whitney's house and go back to Greensboro. However, she couldn't fathom her life without Buddy just yet and felt that she needed him around to stay sane.
Buddy had made up his mind to move but in the current episode, she was once again seen discussing with him about weight loss surgery. She read a couple of brutal messages she receives on dating apps on the regular and broke down in tears. That is when Buddy decided that he will stay back for her and they officially signed the lease for the house for another seven months. Fans watching the episode slammed Whitney for using her tears to manipulate him to move in with her.
