In 2015, Whitney Way Thore was working as a radio producer in her hometown of Greensboro, North Carolina. She had gained a significant amount of weight due to polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and had given up dancing for a time, but returned to dancing and posted videos of herself. These videos became popular, and led to Thore being picked up by TLC for My Big Fat Fabulous Life. The show focuses on her passion for dance, her efforts to stay fit, and, of course, her personal life and romantic relationships. These relationships have formed the basis for a lot of gossip and public discussion.

Thore has had a few different major relationships over the course of the show. Her first was with an artist named Lennie Alehat, and later she dated a man named Avi Lang, who turned out to have been cheating on her with another woman.

And finally, there’s Severino.
