Fans Are Worried Buddy Bell Will Relapse on 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life'

By Anna Quintana

Last season of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, viewers of the TLC series watched as Buddy Bell checked into rehab to overcome his cocaine addiction — and his BFF Whitney Way Thore was his biggest supporter. 

"Truth of the matter is I just started using cocaine recreationally and it got out of hand. I was almost about to fall off a cliff, I was pretty far down that slippery slope," he said on the show before explaining how it wasn't until his family and friends gave him an ultimatum that he decided to do something about his drug addiction. 

"One of the things that my mother said is, she told a story of when I was a little boy and I was crying in bed because I had the realization for the first time that my parents were going to die one day," he said between tears. "And then she flipped it on me, in the intervention. She told me how she went to bed worrying the same things about me. That was a reality that could have very well happened." 

This season, Buddy is back from rehab and living with Whitney, but fans are worried that Buddy is right back in the environment that got him into trouble in the first place. 

So, did Buddy relapse? 

We're keeping our fingers crossed that Buddy doesn't get back into his old habits, but in a sneak peek of the series, he shared his concerns. "I'm right back where I can score," Buddy said while on the road with Whitney and Tal. Whitney also expressed her fears of Buddy doing cocaine again, adding, "If Buddy found drugs, I would never forgive myself."
