Whitney Way Thore is dropping some breadcrumbs when it comes to the details behind how she met her new French boyfriend, and My Big Fat Fabulous Life viewers are here for all the tea. Whitney finally seems to be on a happy path after a year and a half of emotions, thanks to her break up with Chase Severino.
The North Carolina dancer stole hearts years ago when her show first started. Whitney has always been an avid supporter of body positivity and, for the most part, seemed to be able to live a happy life. In recent seasons, she has tried her best to find true love, but every time her heart was left broken. The most recent incident occurred last season, as it was revealed after Chase’s Paris proposal that he cheated on her with an old girlfriend and was going to father her child. But as Whitney does, she picked up the pieces of her life and moved on. During the pandemic, she decided to learn French, where she haphazardly stumbled onto a new, sexier man.
E! shared a sneak peek of a clip from Tuesday’s season premiere, which showed Whitney dishing on her new man. Like most people these days, Whitney met her name on a language app. But finally, fans got more information on how exactly she met her new suitor telling her friend that she met a “dude” on a French app. Thankfully the new mystery beau is totally fluent in English.
Whitney confirms some life details about the Parisian, saying he is from Paris and lives there. She tells cameras that “He is in his thirties, but he’s younger than me. He’s a graphic designer.” It is obvious that Whitney is excited and shares that they have been talking for five months talked for hours over the app, and even watched movies together. Whitney also mentions this is the first time since Chase that she started to feel anything for another person.
But it looks like Cupid’s arrow may have struck again, and the French tutor may feel the same way as Whitney since she has been sharing pictures of the couple touring around France. My Big Fat Fabulous Life fans are more than excited to see Whitney’s heart heal and move on. She is now back in Greensboro with her support system after leaving Charlotte behind for good.
My Big Fat Fabulous Life airs Tuesday at 9pm EST on TLC.
