‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’ Star Whitney Way Thore Confirms Split From Fiancé Chase Severino; Reveals Chase Got Another Woman Pregnant

Time to kiss this relationship goodbye.

Whitney Way Thore, star of TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life, is dancing her way back to the singles scene after confirming her split with fiancé Chase Severino. 

The news of the couple’s breakup comes not long after both Whitney and Chase deleted (most of the) photos of each other from social media and after rumors began floating around that Chase had gotten another woman pregnant.

On Thursday, Whitney confirmed on Instagram that the rumors were true and that she and Chase had ended their engagement.

“So….does this mean I can’t count on you to babysit?”

“Hey y’all. This is a really weird and uncomfortable thing to have to ‘announce’ on social media, but as I get more questions and hear more rumors, I figured it was time,” Whitney wrote. “Chase and I are no longer engaged.”

Whitney went on to reveal that after “a lot of ups and down and still living apart, Chase reconnected with a woman with whom he has had a long history.”

“So…can I still be on your show?” “Stay away from me or I will cut you…”

“Chase recently told me this information and the fact that it had resulted in a pregnancy,” she continued. “Chase will be a father in October.” 

Whitney asked for privacy for all involved and said she was “not interested in anything hateful being directed toward anyone.” 


Chase confirmed Whitney’s claims on his own Instagram on Thursday, noting he was “very excited” to welcome a child in the fall, and even directing his followers to Whitney’s post for details on their split.

“I have nothing but love and respect for Whitney and our time together,” Chase added. 

“Clearly you loved and respected me so much that you knocked up some other broad…”

He thanked fans of the show for their support, and asked them not to troll his future baby mama.

“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.” 

Whitney and Chase’s engagement was shown on the most recent season of ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’, which aired earlier this year, and the couple’s engagement party was featured on the Season 7 finale. 

“Will you marry me and/or not bash me on the Internet after I get someone else pregnant?”

At this time, there has been no news regarding an eighth season of ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’.

Currently, Whitney is spending her time quarantined at home in North Carolina with her best friend Buddy Bell. 


At press time, Chase and Whitney were still following each other on Instagram.

  1. Whether or not her relationship with Chase was fake, he WAS right about how her friendship with Buddy crosses a line. NO partner would be ok with their significant other hanging off a ‘friend’ of the opposite sex half naked the way her and Buddy do. It’s disrespectful to your partner. Chase always seemed offed and Ryan is a straight up DICK.
    Todd is another level of bitchy and fake.
    Heather is whiney as f*ck
    Tal and Ashley are the only 2 that are decent and tolerable.
    Either claim Buddy as your life partner, or tell him to kick rocks cause as long as you roll around with him half naked, you’ll never find a husband

  2. I hate when the cheater is like I have nothing but love and respect for the other person….UMMMMM were you respecting her when you got another girl pregnant?!

  3. 🙄 lets be real they were never really together, her post doesnt read as someone who’s heartbroken over a fiancé that’s cheated and gotten someone pregnant, it reads as someone whose coworker got someone pregnant and can no longer play her fiancé on her heavily scripted “reality” show
    now ditch the Ryan guy and go back to the way the show was around the 1st and 2nd season

  4. Has anyone seen the Catfish episode where the girl was talking to Chase online & she asked Nev to help find out if was really this Chase guy?! Wellllll turns out it really was him! He tried to play it off like they he created this amazing “ friendship” online – but really he looked lsuper shady & like he was having online affairs behind Whitney’s back. Guess he was doing more than just typing on a keyboard with woman & real life bangin em instead!

    1. Wait? What? Do tell! I swear I’ve seen every episode of Catfish and I don’t remember ever seeing Chase. When was this?

  5. Their relationship was probably fake to begin with, like everything on that show. Remember that time she was a lesbian and her parents “accidentally” walked in on her and this other chick?

    I cannot believe that people think this is real!

    I am sorry you are going through this betrayal. I guess Chase is like so many men who absolutely can’t be faithful to a beautiful woman like you.

  8. Wow… ppl like this really exist?? Have some class! Hopefully she realizes this is for the better. He obviously has no respect

  9. I’ve been there and it sucks at first but in time you realize that it was probably one of the best things to ever happen to you. Sometimes you need that extra push to finally get out of an unhealthy relationship and the endless cycle of breaking up and getting back together. I don’t know if I would have been able to get out otherwise.

      Whitney, I feel sorry that you are going through this. Another man who couldn’t stay faithful to a beautiful woman like you. Go figure.

      1. Props to Whitney for being so mature about the situation! I cant imagine how hard this must be for her. When I saw her post I went to Chase’s page to see if he had made a post yet. He hadn’t but on his most recent post people were commenting asking if he misses Whitney (because of lockdown) and he was saying yes. That all just feels so slimy to me now knowing that he would say that while cheating on her and probably knowing that he had gotten another woman pregnant.
        I feel like this new chapter for Whitney will be her best yet and I’m so excited for her though! She deserves better and I know she knows her worth !!!

  10. please this whole show is fake. look at him fit healthy attractive good personality she is a raving stuck up bitch who thinks she is all that there is not enough money in the world to make someone put up with that beast

    1. lol he’s not that attractive and from what’s shown on the show he has the personality of a potato

  11. What the hell?! I feel so bad for Whitney. I never liked Chase or Ryan for that matter. Who tries to split you up from your long time friends? Jerks, that’s who.

    Also, wasn’t one of the hang ups for Chase that he wasn’t sure if he wanted kids, and now he goes and knocks another woman up? What a POS.

    Good riddance!

      Totally agree. Makes you think about how he was always jealous of her and Buddy. He was guilty.

  12. That is hilarious. She loves to push every problem onto her weight, and never acknowledges that she is an insufferable bitch to be around. She will never admit to her own problems.

  13. That is unbelievably crappy to do to someone! Geez…don’t cheat on your fiancé, don’t get another chick pregnant, how about don’t ask someone to be your wife if you obviously aren’t ready for that kind of a commitment? Whitney, you are way too good for him!

  14. Whitney, you dodged a bullet. I know it’s embarrassing and painful right now, and I’m sorry you’re going through that, but you will look back on this with nothing but relief. When people show you who they are, believe them. Praying for you.

      My husband and I felt so heartbroken for Whitney when I saw this on IG. I’m always cheering for the underdog to win love and my husbands and Ireally thought that Chase was genuine about falling for her. I think a lot of people who watched the show thought this whole romance was fake. I didn’t think their relationship was fake. But who knows, some men are just dogs. I just hope she doesn’t end up with Buddy.

    oh my gosh what did her parents say when they found out?I think Whitney should go back to her dancing with Todd,those were my favorite episodes!Good luck with whatever you decide to do looking forward to your next season.
