Get it, girl! My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Thore is known for her killer dance moves, and she worked on a super special project with her fave dance partner Todd Beasley just for Halloween. Whitney and Todd paid homage to the late pop star Michael Jackson by recreating the iconic dance scene from the music video for his 1983 hit “Thriller.”
Whitney, 34, rocked high-waisted black leggings and a black sports bra with a sheer detail in the clip, while Todd matched Whitney by wearing a black tank top and black pants. The besties looked like they were having a blast as they danced their way through the choreography, and they even had a cute little laugh together at the end.
The reality star has been very open in the past about her passion for dance and she even previously revealed that she took a break from dancing when she started to experience rapid weight gain from what she would later find out was caused by her PCOS — Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
“When I started high school, I weighed 114 pounds. Then when I started college, I started gaining weight so fast and I didn’t know what was wrong with me. By the end of my freshman year, I gained 100 pounds and my entire life changed,” Whitney explained in a confessional during the pilot episode of her hit TLC reality TV series. “I quit dancing because I couldn’t stand to look at myself in the mirror anymore and I fell into a deep depression that lasted years.”
But one day, she decided that she wouldn’t let her weight define who she is or dictate what she can and cannot do, so she started to slowly get back into dancing. In 2014, Whitney uploaded a dance video she recorded with Toddy called “A Fat Girl Dancing” to YouTube and it went viral, which eventually led to Whitney scoring her own show — all thanks to her confidence and the power of dance.
