A former successful cast member of My 600-Lb. Life reached out to us exclusively with some shocking accusations that included Dr. Now being fired by TLC and the series potentially being canceled (or at least re-branded). While this cast member has asked to remain anonymous (we assume for legal contract reasons), TvShowsAce can confirm this cast member did have a successful journey on My 600-Lb. Life that included getting approved for the surgery.
This cast member proceeded to tell us they haven’t actually had their surgery and are currently stuck in limbo. Turns out, there are some issues involving Dr. Now, the network, and the insurance involved in paying for the surgeries the TLC doctor performs. Sadly, we’ve also learned there are nearly a dozen cast members that have been approved for the surgery but are now stuck in limbo.
Dr. Now fired by TLC?
Speaking exclusively to one of Dr. Now’s patients, we are being told the lawsuits piling up against the physician from former cast members (and their family members in some cases) have caused a bit of a roadblock. The lawsuits are becoming too expensive of a problem for the network to want to deal with.
Furthermore, the lawsuits present a massive issue for the insurance company that foots the bill for Dr. Now’s surgery and any additional care. The pile of lawsuits has turned Dr. Now into a liability for the insurance company. This cast member alleges that the insurance company has dropped Dr. Now and refused to cover any more of his patients.
Between the lawsuits and the lack of insurance, we are being told Dr. Now has become too much of an expense for the network to want to continue to work with him.
Is My 600-Lb. Life being canceled?
Now, this is where things get a little dicey. When we spoke to this cast member, they told us there were nearly a dozen patients stuck in limbo because the insurance refused to cover the surgery. Fans who watch My 600-Lb. Life know Dr. Now is NOT TLC’s only doctor in this field. Allegedly, the cast members were offered the option of relocating and getting the surgery from one of the other physicians that TLC works with.
Allegedly, there is also another doctor working out of Dr. Now’s practice that may take over care of the patients that do not wish to relocate away from Houston, Texas.
This information does mean My 600-Lb. Life getting canceled is a possibility. It is also possible the network could re-brand the series. Likewise, the series could just continue with a new physician.
Could this information really be true?
Typically, a new season of Where Are They Now follows right behind the conclusion of a season of My 600-Lb. Life. That, however, did not happen when this last season of the series. If the network is having trouble trying to decide how to move forward with the show, it would make sense as to why updates on cast members with a new season of Where Are They Now never happened.
Do you think what this cast member has told us about Dr. Now getting fired and the future of My 600-Lb. Life could be true? Share your thoughts with us in the comments. And, keep coming back for the latest TLC news.
