My 600-Lb. Life introduces Lacey Buckingham and Ricky
Tonight’s episode of My 600-Lb. Life introduces a very sweet and oddly new couple. Lacey Buckingham tells the camera she met Ricky on the internet about a month or two. She explained the two have been together nearly every day since they first met. Lacey admits that she leans on Ricky pretty heavily. While she isn’t happy about it, she admits that he has even helped wipe her after going to the bathroom.
Speaking to the camera, Ricky admits he’s absolutely smitten with Lacey. He explained that he had his own issues with weight at one point in time in his life. So, he understands what she’s going through. Ricky tells the camera he really doesn’t mind helping Lacey with what she needs.
Ricky’s sister Sharon blasts Lacey
Ricky’s sister Sharon pretty much comes out of the gate swinging when she’s introduced on the show. She makes it clear she’s protective of her brother and she won’t let anyone take advantage of him. As we previously reported, Sharon catches Lacey in a lie about her doctor appointments and it proves to be all the ammunition she needs to get her brother to see this is not a good relationship for him.
Sharon questions what exactly Lacey does for her brother. She notes that they haven’t been together long enough to really love each other. And, she insists Lacey is just using her brother because she needs someone to take care of her.
Engaged and then split up
Lacey Buckingham admits things are going really great for her part of the way through the episode. She reveals that Ricky asked her to marry him and she couldn’t be happier. She admits that things went really fast. The two make the impulsive decision to move to Texas to show Dr. Now she is serious about losing weight. Unfortunately, a recent trip to the hospital reveals she’s only lost 16 of the 50 pounds Dr. Now wanted her to lose. And, by the time she actually makes it to Texas, she ends up gaining four of those pounds back.
As we previously reported, Ricky and his sister Sharon end up abandoning Lacey during the drive to Houston. While they return the next day and offer to take her the rest of the way, Lacey refuses to get in the vehicle with them. So, they take off and donate all of her things to charity.
Did Lacey Buckingham and Ricky get back together?
By the very end of the episode, Lacey Buckingham manages to make it back home. She, however, admits she’s lost very valuable possessions she’ll never be able to get back. The episode ends with Lacey also admitting that she really misses Ricky and she hopes she’ll be able to get him back.
Unfortunately, there is no mention of Ricky anywhere on Lacey’s Facebook profile. Her profile, however, does mention that she is a happy girlfriend and currently in a relationship with someone. So, perhaps she got back with Ricky. Or, perhaps, she found someone else to be in a relationship with.
