One of the most explored romantic relationships for Whitney on her show was the relationship she has with Chase Severino. Whitney and Chase first met through their mutual friend and Whitney’s former business partner, Ryan Andreas. From there, the relationship quickly took off. While her friends and family may have thought it was moving fast, Whitney and Chase seemed like they were in it for the long haul.

October 2019 was the pinnacle of Whitney and Chase’s relationship. This was when Chase decided to propose to Whitney. It wasn’t an ordinary proposal; he made sure that it happened in the most romantic place on earth — on top of the Eiffel Tower.

However, the pandemic and Chase’s reluctance to move from Wilmington both put a strain on their relationship. In May 2020, the pair broke off their engagement when it was revealed that Chase had been unfaithful and this resulted in him fathering a child. Whitney was devastated, and she let it show both on television and on social media.

Even though the whole world watched the devastation Whitney endured when her relationship with Chase ended, Whitney seems to have finally moved on from the heartbreak. In more than one Instagram post Whitney has talked about her French boyfriend. However, Whitney has blocked his face in the few pictures she has posted.

According to one of her posts, her new man has requested some privacy and doesn’t want his entire life exposed on her show. This is a request that Whitney has honored for several her past boyfriends. Other than a couple of photos, not many details are known about her boyfriend, aside from the fact that she did meet him in France while on an extended vacation this summer.

Along with the mystery of her new man, fans want to know what will happen in the brand-new season of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, which premieres on Aug. 17, 2021. According to TLC, there are a lot of things going on in Whitney’s life after the breakup with Chase. Whitney is focusing on her future, giving all that she has to her virtual fitness business with her new business partner and fitness trainer, Jessica Powell.

One of the biggest questions left from last season was whether Whitney would stay in Charlotte or move back home. The new season finds Whitney settled back into her old home in Greensboro, N.C., and having Buddy as a roommate again — though many have pointed out that Buddy spends a majority of his time in Southern Pines with his girlfriend. However, Whitney’s parents and friends will all make their usual appearances, from small gatherings to celebratory getaways, after getting vaccinated.

Will the new season make mention of Whitney’s new boyfriend? Since she met him online, it is uncertain whether they meet on the new season, but she does have a virtual flirtation with him. The new season is sure to be a must-see for fans of the show.
