Let it burn! Whitney Thore's best friend Heather Sykes is still reeling from her very harsh split after Buddy Bell broke up with her for good in a text message. But in an exclusive sneak peek from tonight's episode of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney tried to help her pal get over her ex by burning all of their sentimental memories — and Whitney found one particularly hilarious memento from her own past relationships. Watch the video above to see the full sneak peek!
Breakups are always hard, and every girl needs a pal like Whitney to keep her mind off of her ex. Even though Whitney is very close with both Buddy and Heather, she's been doing a great job keeping things neutral in the midst of their split. But it looks like she's more on Heather's side, and she even gave Heather a shoulder to cry as Heather read Buddy's text message out loud and tried to make sense of it during last week's episode.
The former couple dated for several years and things were pretty serious — so serious that she introduced Buddy to her two young children. But they broke up shortly before Buddy admitted that he had been struggling with cocaine addiction, and it seemed like there was a chance that they could get back together — but after getting clean and sober in rehab, Buddy ultimately decided that he no longer wanted to be with her.
It's really nice to see that Whitney is so supportive of her bestie during such a difficult time — especially because she just went through a nasty breakup of her own. Earlier in the season, Whitney was ready to walk down the aisle and marry her boyfriend Avi Lang but she quickly found out that he was cheating on her with multiple women — and after she confronted him about it, she kicked him to the curb.
