The TLC television personality Whitney Way Thore is most known for her appearances on My Big Fat Fabulous Life.

The TV celebrity relocated to the United States from Korea and took a job as the on-air producer of the Greensboro, North Carolina, radio show Jared & Katie in the Morning on 107.5 KZL.

The show posted a dance clip titled “A Fat Girl Dancing” on 107.5 KZL’s YouTube page on February 27, 2014. After the video went viral, Thore was able to promote her message of body acceptance and healthy body image.

Obituary: Babs Thore Stroke Update 2022

The fact that Babs Thore is still alive gives MBFFL supporters peace of mind. Concern over Whitney’s mother’s health was raised by a sneak peeks segment from Season 10 that People shared exclusively.

In the preview clip, Whitney’s father Glenn spoke to her on the phone and said: “Your mother is going to the hospital with us. It’s awful.” In front of the camera, Whitney clarified: “My dad had given me a call. He said my mother had experienced a second stroke. My body’s heart had just departed it.”

Hunter, Whitney’s brother, reported that Whitney was “lying on the couch, unable to communicate.” “When I got here, I feared maybe she was dead.”

Another scene from Season 10 featured Whitney crying while on the phone with her father.

Following her stroke, Babs was transferred to the ICU, where she also tested positive for COVID-19 and got a UTI. Because Whitney’s mother wasn’t eating, a feeding tube was eventually placed in her mouth.

What Happened To Whitney Thore’s French Boyfriend?

In the season before My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney Thore started a new relationship with a Parisian she met online.

In Season 9, the TV personality made numerous allusions to her new love interest, who was only referred to as “the Frenchman” and who never really appeared on the show.

The upcoming episodes of My Big Fat Fabulous Life have fans wondering if Whitney and her French boyfriend are still together and if he will make an appearance in any of the new episodes.

In a brand-new footage from the upcoming season, the actress acknowledges her romance with the Frenchman. Her French lover, who currently seems to be in good health, has not received any explanation for what transpired.

In the clip from an upcoming My Big Fat Fabulous Life episode, Whitney and her ex-boyfriend Lennie Alehat can be seen talking about her love life. Alehat will make an appearance in the upcoming season because Thore hired him to assist her in producing online workout videos.

Babs Thore Age: How Old Is Whitney Thore’s Mother?

Babs Thore was born on June 23, 1946, and is currently 76 years old. Whitney just wished her mother a happy birthday on Instagram and appears younger than she actually is.

Since Season 10 filming started, hopefully, she has made considerable progress from her most recent seizure. Our sympathies are with the Thore family during this tough time.

Babs’ daughter Whitney, who is now 38 years old, was born on April 14, 1984. Glenn and Barbara Thore welcomed her into the world in Greensboro, North Carolina.

In 2000, Whitney was admitted to the Governor’s School of North Carolina Theatre Summer Enrichment Program at Meredith College.

After graduating in 2002 from Page High School in North Carolina, the TV personality enrolled in Appalachian State University in Boone. After completing her education, she relocated to South Korea to teach English to students.
