my great fabulous life returns to TLC for season 10.
The series follows the life of dancer Whitney Way Thore as she navigates work, family, and romance. The show features various family members and friends of the star, including Tal Fish and Heather Sykes.
In season 9 of my great fabulous life Viewers saw Whitney embark on a new romance with a man from Paris, France, whom she had met online, but it looks like the new episodes will see her reunited (at least in the professional sense) with her ex Lennie Alehat.
Fans will also see Whitney’s mother Babs’ health issues on screen in Season 10, after a trailer that was released in early 2022 confirmed that the 76-year-old had suffered another stroke. The matriarch of the Thore family first had a stroke in 2017 and her recovery was shown on the show.
So when my great fabulous life return? And Babs will star this season? news week has everything you need to know about my great fabulous life Season 10 on TLC.
When does ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’ season 10 start?
my great fabulous life Season 10 will begin on TLC on August 9.
The episodes will air at 10pm ET, but will also be available to stream on discovery+ on the same day.
Who will be in the cast of ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’ season 10?
Whitney Way Thore will, of course, return for my great fabulous life Season 10, just like her mother Babs, her father Glenn, and her brother Hunter.
Ex-boyfriend Lennie Alehat is also back, and the trailer shows that Whitney hired him to help her film her fitness videos online. Although her friends are concerned about this decision, Thore insists that they will keep their relationship strictly professional.
“Some people might think that holding on to an ex is a slippery slope. I might fall on my ass, but I’m not going to fall for Lennie,” he says in the trailer.
Thore’s friend Tal Fish will also appear in the new episodes and will join Thore on a trip to St. Lucia, along with Alehat and Thore’s brother. In the trailer, Thore seems to be jealous of Alehat dancing with another woman during the trip, and despite her insisting that “Lennie can do whatever he wants, I’m not jealous”, Fish sarcastically tells her, “Whitney, tell him more about how you’re not jealous.”
Elsewhere in the trailer, things take a more serious turn as Thore and his family are seen dealing with the aftermath of Babs’ stroke. “I just don’t want him to suffer,” Thore cries on the phone with his father, to which he replies, “I can’t believe it’s gotten worse.”
While Babs’ stroke was confirmed earlier this year, it appears her health has been further complicated by COVID-19. The official synopsis for the first episode of season 10 reads: “After Babs suffers a stroke, the family discovers that Babs, Glenn and Hunter have COVID-19; with no family to lean on, Whitney’s friends band together as she tries to stay strong through a trying time.”
The synopsis for the next episode is as follows: “After suffering a stroke, COVID-19 and an infection, the Thores are shocked to see Babs make a miraculous recovery; they all eagerly hope that it will be enough to get her rehab approved; Whitney not willing to give up without a fight.”
