Whitney Way Thore of My Big Fat Fabulous Life (MBFFL) gets critics
The news about the split and the baby came as no big surprise to critics of Whitney and TLC. In fact, many of them thought that Chase and Whitney faked their relationship in the first place. Some of them suspect that when the pregnancy came along, it possibly ruined TLC’s storyline After all you can’t hide a baby. Whitney admitted that later. Some fans suspect Buddy Bell might date her in a new season, instead.
News also emerged that Buddy Bell now lives with Whitney during the COVID-19 quarantine. Some people think that adds weight to the theory of a romance between them. Naturally, critics suggest if that happens, then it simply brings more fakery to My Big Fat Fabulous Life. On Reddit, fans pointed out that the baby rumors surfaced a long time before Whitney officially mentioned it. Mind you, other fans find the news intriguing. One said, “This is way more interesting than anything that’s happened on that show in years!” But, Whitney Way Thore hates that sort of drama.

Hey y’all. This is a really weird and uncomfortable thing to have to “announce” on social media, but as I get more questions and hear more rumors, I figured it was time. Chase and I are no longer engaged. After experiencing a lot of ups and downs and still living apart, Chase reconnected with a woman with whom he has had a long history. Chase recently told me this information and the fact that it had resulted in a pregnancy. Chase will be a father in October. I’m not interested in anything hateful being directed toward anyone. I would ask for privacy for all involved as we move on and focus on the future.
Whitney on drama and gossip
The MBFFL star spoke to People about the baby reveal. During that, she told them that fans got it wrong. She apparently didn’t know about her baby for “month and months.” She told the outlet, “I learned this news myself fairly recently.” Her motivation for the announcement about the baby and the split on Instagram came because she wants to just “move on.” Whitney also talked about all the rumors and gossip.
The No BS Active co-owner said that personally, she preferred not to talk about it all. But, she acknowledged that some people “already knew.” She added, “a baby isn’t something that can remain private in the future.” And, that comes back to fans wondering if the baby bust up TLC’s plans for a new season. Whitney Way Thore also noted that she came out about the baby because “I truly just don’t want the drama and the gossip.”
What do you think about Whitney Way Thore speaking out to stop all the rumors and gossip? Fans already figured out for themselves that the baby couldn’t get pushed under the carpet. Whether they faked their storyline or not seems a moot point now that they split anyway. Sound off your thoughts in the comments below.
