Whitney Way Thore’s new relationship is raising a lot of eyebrows. Viewers aren’t the only ones questioning the intention of her new mysterious beau. In fact, the MBFFL star’s friends are asking the same question: Is Whitney Way Thore’s new boyfriend catfishing her??
My Big Fat Fab Life Star Ready For Love Again
Whitney Way Thore is not afraid to show viewers the good and bad parts of her life. During Season 7, Whitney got engaged to Chase Severino. However, the engagement was called off just a few short months later. Chase admitted to cheating on her and getting the other woman pregnant. He’s seemingly still in a relationship with his baby mama.
Surprisingly, Chase returns for Season 9 of the show, though it’s unclear why. After getting her heart broken, the TLC reality star is ready to put her heart on the line again.
In the trailer for the new season of MBFFL, Whitney reveals she’s dating someone new. The catch is that the relationship is all virtual, as her new beau doesn’t live in the U.S.
Paris Vacation With New Man
Whitney’s new mystery man is French! The North Carolina native spent a month in France over the summer. For some of the vacation Whitney had much-needed girl time with her girlfriends. She spent the last part of her trip touring various parts of Paris with her new man.
The MBFFL star documented the trip on her Instagram. However, she blocked out her beau’s face in their photos together. She explained that he wants to keep his identity private for now. Hmm, interesting!
Friends and Fans Worry Whitney Way Thore’s Beau is Catfishing Her – Why?
So, how did Whitney Way Thore meet her new French beau? As she explains in the trailer down below, she met him on a language app as her tutor in the French language. In the new Season 9 promo, Whitney reveals to one of her friends that she feels weird having a crush on her tutor, per E! Online’s recap of the teaser
Her friends are extremely skeptical about her new beau. They find it highly suspicious that a French language teacher would be fluent in English.
Fans of the show who have seen the trailer expressed similar doubts. Why doesn’t her beau have a French accent?, they wonder. TLC shared the new preview on their Instagram page. Viewers were highly critical of the storyline of Whitney and her new boo. Check out what fans are saying:
- Again!? Girl!!!!!
- Oh god, here we go again. You’d think she’d learn from her mistakes with all she’s been through! 🤦🏻♀️
- I’m not judging her , but every season she has a new man can she just focus on herself for once
- Another George Glass blah blah zzzz
(If you don’t get the reference, “George Glass” is Jan Brady’s fictional boyfriend on The Brady Bunch.)
