MY Big Fat Fabulous Life fans slammed Whitney Way Thore’s “dead end relationship” with her younger French boyfriend.
The 37-year-old opened up about her new relationship during Tuesday’s episode of the TLC show.
Early on in the season premiere, Whitney revealed that there is a new man in her life.
She revealed during a confessional interview: “I got on this language exchange platform and met a dude.”
Whitney continued: “I have met a French man who lives in France. We met on a language exchange program platform online.
“He is in his 30s, but he’s younger than me. He’s a graphic designer.
“He’s filled up a lot of my time and become a friend- I feel like a good friend. We’ve been talking for almost probably five months now.
“It’s fun and it’s exciting. We learn French, but mostly we just talk.”
The TV personality added that the mystery man may help her get over her ex-fiance Chase Severino, stating: “For the first time since Chase I have started to feel some little inklings, yearnings, growlings, buzzings, something.”
Despite Whitney’s high hopes for the new relationship, fans rushed to Twitter to slam the new romance.
One My Big Fat Fabulous Life fan wrote: “Oh great another dead end relationship for Whitney.”
Another sarcastically added: “A Parisian lover across the world. What could possibly go wrong.”
A third encouraged the TV star to tay single, writing: “Stay single Whitney. Nothing feels better than freedom and being happy.”
A following skeptical fan wrote: “Who knows what Whitney could be getting herself into by connecting with this guy in Paris…”
WHITNEY’S NEW ROMANCE
Back in July, she took to Instagram to reveal she has a new boyfriend.
The TV personality didn’t reveal the identity of the mystery man, though raved about their time spent in Paris in a post.
Whitney opened up about her new romance one year after her split from ex-fiance Chase Severino.
She revealed her fiancé cheated on her in May 2020, writing: “After experiencing a lot of ups and downs and still living apart, Chase reconnected with a woman with whom he has had a long history.
“Chase recently told me this information and the fact that it had resulted in a pregnancy. Chase will be a father in October.”
The My Big Fat Fabulous Life star concluded: “I’m not interested in anything hateful being directed toward anyone. I would ask for privacy for all involved as we move on and focus on the future.”
Chase would also respond and confirm the news: “I have nothing but love and respect for Whitney and our time together. Thank you for always supporting us.
“As we now go our separate ways, I ask for privacy for Whitney, myself, and the mother of my child who wishes to remain anonymous.”
