‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’ Filming with Whitney & Buddy – Quarantine Rebound for Season 8?

My Big Fat Fabulous Life is already filming the new season with Whitney Thore and bestie Buddy Bell front and center. However, there’s a whole lot of chatter about the TLC show faking romances and scripting scenes. Will there be more fraud in Season 8? We’ve heard TLC’s got cameras on the ground in North Caroline – check it out.

Did My Big Fat Fabulous Life Fake the Entire Romance With Whitney Thore & Chase Severino?

Persistent chatter says Whitney Thore wasn’t in a real romance with Chase Severino. And the timing of Chase popping up with a pregnant girlfriend right after the last episodes of MBFFL Season 7 aired is highly suspect.

A source close to them in North Carolina said the fraud came after mutual friend Ryan Andreas introduced them. They said Chase and Whitney cooked up the idea for My Big Fat Fabulous Life. According to our source, this whole Whitney-Chase romance was for the cameras.

Plus, TLC’s known for scripted scenes on it’s “reality shows.” So, there’s that too. In the end, while Whitney Thore is a lot of fun, and certainly deserving of real love – it doesn’t seem that Chase was the real deal. But it did offer an enticing plot on My Big Fat Fabulous Life.

MBFFL Season 8 – Rebound with Buddy Bell in the Works?

It’s usually this time of year that My Big Fat Fabulous Life cameras roll into Charlotte, NC, to start filming with Whitney Thore and her family. With the COVID lockdown, it might delay a little. However, we’ve spotted some of the technical crew already there’s, so filming is happening.

With Whitney “dumped” by alleged fauxmance partner Chase, what’s the focus of My Big Fat Fabulous Life Season 8? No doubt, it involves Buddy. They confirmed that after Buddy Bell was her helper during quarantine, dropping off groceries, he moved in with her between April and May.

Another question is whether Buddy moved in because of landlord issues as he showed off a letter about his rent (see below). Buddy Bell’s now with My Big Fat Fabulous Life co-star Whitney Thore. And, he was there for her heartbreak over Chase’s baby daddy news. Were they already filming?

Was the Chase & Whitney Split Orchestrated for New ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’ Season?

Given the talk that Whitney and Chase were in a reality TV showmance, not a real romance, the break-up was inevitable. However, the pregnancy was clearly unplanned. But, it’ll dovetail well for drama at the start of MBFFL‘s next season. Although, it scuttled plans for Whitney to pop up on TLC’s sister show Say Yes to the Dress.

Meanwhile, we can expect lots of Whitney and Buddy on Season 8. So far, their chemistry’s more fizzle than sizzle, as Whitney Thore herself admitted. We anticipate that early episodes of My Big Fat Fabulous Life were self-filmed by the duo during quarantine.

Then, they’ll transition to crew-filmed MBFFL episodes as the season progresses. We’ve heard cameras are in town filming Buddy Bell living with Whitney Thore. So, we expect a big start with quarantine, Chase’s baby news, and Buddy comforting Whitney as Season 8 debuts January 2021.
