Fans of My Big Fat Fabulous Life know the outcome of the show’s Season 8, even though it just began airing. As widely reported months ago, the show’s star, Whitney Way Thore, ended her engagement to Chase Severino. Viewers saw the couple get engaged during a romantic trip to Paris, France, in Season 7.
However, after filming ended, Whitney Way Thore found out some shocking news about her fiance. Not only did he cheat on her, but he got another woman pregnant. Needless to say, the engagement is off.
But fans think now that they can clearly see the demise of the relationship coming. Were there red flags that Whitney Way Thore missed about her ex-fiance?
Fans Notice Red Flags With Ex-Fiance in MBFFL Season 8 Footage
After the Season 8 premiere, fans took to Reddit to share their thoughts. In one thread, a fan wrote about a HUGE red flag for them. The social media user wrote that in their experience, an engaged couple should be more touchy-feely.
The thread is titled “What engaged couple never touches either like Chase and Whit?
They wrote, “When my husband and I were engaged, we were always holding hands, sitting so close we were touching, kissing constantly, stroking each other’s hair…”
The Redditor noted that on MBFFL, “[Whitney and Chase] never reach out and spontaneously just get near each other except rarely and Whitney is always the instigator.” In fact, during a car ride, Whitney chooses holding her cat’s paw over holding Chase’s hand.
Many Redditors chimed in with agreement. They consider the lack of physical affection a clear red flag that the relationship wouldn’t last. To some fans, it ‘proves’ the allegations that her entire romance with Chase was faked for TV.
Star Admits Playback Will Be ‘Painful’
What fans are seeing on TV actually happened in real-life MONTHS ago for Whitney Way Thore. She’s had time to get over her broken engagement. But now she has to relive it all over again. Ahead of the Season 8 premiere, she spoke with PEOPLE magazine about what that will be like for her.
She said, “I’ve had six, almost seven months to get past this and move forward, and now to see it on TV is not ideal.”
Furthermore, she predicts this will be the most “stressful” season for her. But she has a sense of humor about it. On premiere day, she took to her Instagram to share a video with her followers about the new season.
