MBFFL fans think Whitney reunited with ex-boyfriend

TLC cameras have followed Whitney Way Thore for 9 seasons of My Big Fat Fabulous Life. In addition to her weight loss journey, viewers have watched her quest for love end in multiple heartbreaks.

During Season 7, she got engaged to Chase Severino. However, by the next season, their relationship was over after he admitted to cheating and getting another woman pregnant.

Season 9 saw Thore fall for a mysterious man who was tutoring her in French online. The COVID pandemic put a damper on their plans for him to travel to the U.S. to meet for the first time.

After the season finished airing, Whitney spent a few weeks in France with her new beau. However, she hasn’t mentioned him on social media in a while.

Instead, she’s been hanging out with her ex, Lennie Alehat. Long-time fans will remember him from the early seasons of MBFFL.

Fan speculation has heated up that Whitney and Lennie are back together. Are they?

Her announcement thrilled her followers. Many speculated that Season 10 could answer questions fans have about Lennie and Whitney.

What do we know about the new season?

Babs takes center stage for Season 10?

The MBFFL renewal news was already out there before Whitney officially confirmed it.

According to TLC’s official press release, Whitney’s mom, Babs, will be at the center of Season 10. She has a serious health scare that will heavily feature on the show.

The press release does mention Lennie but the news may not be what fans are expecting. The network teases that Whitney hired her ex to help out her No BS Active fitness program.

Fans will have to tune in to see if Whitney and Lennie mix business with pleasure.

My Big Fat Fabulous Life returns to TLC on Tuesday, August 9, 2022. In the meantime, new seasons of Little People, Big World and Welcome to Plathville just premiered on the network.

  1. I’m so sick of all her fake romances. If the guy receives a 1099 for his efforts, he’s probably not a real boyfriend.

  2. I am sick of Whitney’s whining and complaining. We are tired of her promiscuous behavior. Wearing clothing that makes one want to turn her off. An embarrassment to us living near her. She needs to grow up.
