MBFFL Star Whitney Way Thore has had a long and sometimes complicated relationship with Buddy Bell. But lately, fans aren’t happy with how Whitney is acting toward Buddy and wonder, has she turned her back on her friend?
She fell in love with a liar and cheater
Whitney met Chase Severino after being introduced by a mutual friend. After dating for a little while, Chase proposed to Whitney during an October 2019 trip to Paris. It seemed like the two were in for wedding bliss! Sadly, though the engagement fell apart and ended in a lot of heartbreak.
“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,” Whitney wrote on Instagram. “Chase recently told me this information and the fact that it had resulted in a pregnancy. Chase will be a father in October.”
It’s apparent that Buddy was there for Whitney Way Thore during this tough time
Whitney had a tough time after she and Chase broke up. However, Whitney wasn’t alone during this time. Her longtime BFF Buddy has been staying with her “for the last month,” according to an interview by Lifestyle Mag. Buddy went on to say that the breakup has been “tough” on Whitney, “but she’s also the toughest woman I know and I’m excited about what the future will bring for her.”
Fans feel like she turned on her best friend after he did so much for her
In the season 8 premiere, fans watched as Whitney decided it was time to set some boundaries with Buddy. It was clear their closeness bothered her then-fiancé Chase, so Whitney gave in to his request and draw a line in the sand. This seemed harsh to fans.
Fans weigh in on Whitney Way Thore’s action
“I know that Whitney is ‘engaged’ and needs to set better boundaries with Buddy BUT,” a fan started on Reddit. “The way she treats him when they’re on their little reunion getaway thing is straight trash. The entire time this show has aired, Whitney has been so disgustingly touchy-feely with him. He reciprocates and sometimes initiates but 99% of the time she is the instigator. I honestly felt bad for Buddy.”
Plenty more fans continued to sing this same song, even taking to Instagram to lash out. “You treated Buddy poorly and owe him an apology,” another fan went on to say.
Buddy snapped back
Viewers recall when Buddy and Whitney went on a hike in the woods, Whitney lashed out at her friend in an awkward disagreement. Buddy wasn’t happy with the way Whitney was acting toward him in the episode. He even threatened to leave the mountain trip because of her attitude. The two remain friends but fans hope Whitney learns to treat him better, especially since he’s always there for her.
