More than a year after splitting from fiancé Chase Severino, Whitney Way Thore of My Big Fat Fabulous Life has reportedly found love again; however this time, she’s keeping the details – and her man’s identity – to herself.
Whitney, who confirmed in May 2020 that she and Chase had ended their engagement due to Chase getting another woman pregnant, took to Instagram this week to share a series of photos taken of herself and her new “French man,” though she never actually revealed the man’s identity (or face) due to the strategically placed circles edited into the snapshots.
“I’ve always had a sorta love/mostly hate relationship with social media, but after the last year, it’s grown even more complicated,” Whitney explained. “So – when your French man says he values his privacy but you still wanna share with him, this is what social media gets.”
The (somewhat) unveiling of Whitney’s new man was met with mixed reactions from her social media followers, many telling the TLC star they were happy for her and commending her for respecting her mystery man’s privacy.
“This is how it should always be done,” one person wrote. “Too much hate and negative energy comes your way. I am happy for you Whitney.”
Others seemed less supportive of Whitney’s decision to hide the identity of the man she’s dating, with one person noting if a guy doesn’t want his photos shared publicly on social media, there’s likely something going on, other than a desire to remain anonymous.
Whitney told her followers a new season of ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’ will premiere August 17 on TLC, though she didn’t comment on whether or not her mystery man would be making his debut on the show.
With Whitney appearing to have put her broken engagement behind her, Chase has moved on, too, having reportedly gotten engaged to the mother of his child in May.
Earlier this month, Chase also revealed that he and his fiancé had purchased their first home together.

Why can’t she have a show?!?!
She’s no better or worse than the Kardashians!
Just because she’s a large woman she can’t have the fame like them??
She’s more of a representation of today’s body type than any other show out there!
Shame on you all!
Leave Whitney, her family, & her friends (including boyfriend: you go girl!!!!, ALONE!!
Why does this girl have a show?
Got to have a story line….enter French man.
Here is a tip on privacy: don’t use social media. Problem solved. How cringey is this post 😒
I used to watch the show when it first aired. I found her friends and family much more interesting than Whitney, herself. She is such a whiney, vapid, insecure excuse maker, I have no idea how this show is still on the air. But then again, Teen Mom is still airing so…🥱🥱
Can’t stand her. She’s literally a Big Fat phoney.
Don’t be preaching to me about self love and body positivity when you cant stand yourself and are jealous of EVERYONE that comes near you.
Ok. I get the whole privacy thing. I really do and I respect that. But if you’re that concerned about privacy, don’t post anything! I don’t want to see the body of the person your dating with a big black circle in their face. I don’t want to see the back of your kids head or face covered up (Gigi Hadid and Sussex’s I m talking to you). Do t act all fucking high and mighty and just show us their body. If you don’t want to show them, don’t show anything. It just screams I’m angling for attention but I’m not going to let you see. But you can see their hNd, hows that. Don’t fucking show anything because honestly you’re the only person who cares. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
