My Big Fat Fabulous Life and My 600-LB Life both draw a lot of fans to TLC, but might they consider a crossover? After all, Whitney talks a lot about weight loss surgery this season. Whitney Way Thore discussed the idea with her friend, Buddy Bell, but he seemed non-committal. However, this week, she notched it up a bit and spoke with Dr. Bowen.
My Big Fat Fabulous Life & a My 600-LB Life Crossover would please fans
We reported that Whitney Way Thore seemed very hurt by mean comments about her body size. Usually rising above it, this time, she said that she just couldn’t “shake it” off. So, over the last few episodes, it becomes clear that Whitney seriously considers taking the step. But notably, she does have some health issues. Fans know that she suffers from PCOS, a hormonal condition that contributed to her weight gain in the first place.
In the January 26th episode of MBFFL, fans saw Whitney talk to the doctor. And obviously, there are some risks when people undergo weight loss surgery. But, as Meaww noted, she also suffers from a problem that might become a risk if she doesn’t have it. The outlet noted that she’s in the “pre-diabetic range” and that could also be “dangerous.” They also noted that some fans thought this might be a great opportunity for a My Big Fat Fabulous Life/My 600-LB Life crossover.
Fans talked about a potential crossover on Twitter
Over on Twitter, fans tossed out the idea of a crossover. And some of them wondered if Whitney might end up talking with Dr. Now from 600-LB Life. A straight talker, likely, he would quickly establish her motivations and any associated potential medical problems. Furthermore, he helped many people with much heavier problems than Whitney Way Thore. InTouch Weekly reported that Milla Clark literally shed the equivalent to “3 to 4 people after kicking off her weight loss journey at 751 pounds.” So, she gave Dr. Now a massive shoutout.
Mind you, the idea of a crossover between My Big Fat Fabulous Life and My 600-LB Life might be wishful thinking. After all, fans watch Tammy and Amy Salton go through their weight problems on 1000-LB Sisters. And the TLC show never brought in Dr. Now for that. Also, fans know that Whitney might need to relocate to Houston for that. And she seems reluctant to go far from her home base in Greensboro. And, she relies very strongly on her friends and family for their support.
Then again, another TLC fan made an interesting observation on Twitter:
#mybigfatfabulouslife It's not her weight it's her exhausting, tiresome personality. She is afraid to lose weight because then she would have to admit that. Her weight is her whole persona now and what made her famous, without it she wouldn't have a show or career.

While the first part trolled on Whitney, the lower half of that tweet actually makes some kind of sense. After all, what storyline could Whitney run with if she loses weight? Certainly, TLC would probably need to change the name of the show from My Big Fat Fabulous Life.
