Is Vannessa Cross married? Her backstory involves her husband who died

1000-lb Best Friends focuses on all aspects of the lives of the friend group — and this, of course, includes dating. So, is Vannessa Cross married? Sadly, her husband died in 2016. She recently told Us Weekly that her dating life has been “horrible,” and she’s stopped trying for the most part.

“My dating life is horrible and I’ve kind of stopped,” Cross explained. “This is just recently. Because they say if you stop looking, that’s when a man finds you. So, I’m putting everything on hold because I tried to talk to a couple guys and ended up sabotaging myself. We get into an argument or something would happen and I’d end up wanting to eat. Right now, I’m only focusing on losing weight in myself.”

Cross then said her life “spiraled” after her husband’s death. “I gained probably at least 100 pounds [and] actually at my biggest I was 500 pounds,” she noted. “I got up to 500 pounds and then by 2018 is when I got back down to 300 pounds. But losing my husband was the worst thing of my life because I never knew that kind of pain existed.”

Cross also noted her husband “didn’t care” about her weight, as he loved her no matter what she looked like.
