In Season 4 of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney Way Thore gives her first Big Girl dance class outside of her hometown of Greensboro, North Carolina. In the sneak peek video, she’s seen stretching out with a man who lies on top of her, forcing her to bend over her lap. “I’m suffocating in my own fat,” she declares. But that feeling doesn’t stop Whitney from trying to complete a 5k with her father Glenn. That’s the thing about Whitney — she’s convinced, and she convinces her fans, that nothing can stop her.
When not spending time in the gym or with her family, Whitney is either helping her friend Ashley, who’s expecting her first child, or talking on the phone with her new boyfriend. Whitney describes him as a man who “only likes fat women.” But the relationship hits a bump in the road. Whitney is seen crying when she asks her new man (on the phone) “Did you love me?” My Big Fat Fabulous Life airs Tuesdays at 8pm on TLC.
