Whitney Way Thore and her tight-knit group of friends are back for the eighth season of the TLC reality series My Big Fat Fabulous Life. While Season 7 ended with the body positivity advocate getting engaged to her boyfriend, Chase Severino, things are definitely changing on Season 8.
As people will know from social media, Whitney and Chase broke up after she learned that he had been unfaithful. Worse yet, Chase had reconciled with an ex, and they conceived a baby.
Whitney will need her inner circle more than ever before as she navigates the fallout from her highly public breakup. In addition to Buddy Bell being her ever-present rock, Whitney will be leaning on longtime bestie Todd Beasley.
After appearing on Whitney's Instagram page with a new look, Todd has been getting a lot of attention from My Big Fat Fabulous Life fans online.

Fans of 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' love Todd Beasley's new look.
As one of Whitney's closest allies, Todd has been appearing on the TLC show since it debuted. In early seasons, the dance instructor sported blonde hair and a clean-shaven face.
Though Todd and Whitney had some disagreements over the years (like when Whitney surprised him at his New York City dance class), they've remained friends.
After spending months apart due to restrictions from the coronavirus pandemic, Whitney chronicled her reunion with Todd online in September of 2020, and fans were shocked to see his new look. Whitney posted three photos with Todd on Sept. 13, when she and her dog, Neeshi, visited him in Asheville, N.C.
Todd's hair is now brown, and he has a salt-and-pepper beard. Whitney's followers lit up the comments section of her post, and they couldn't get enough of Todd's "glow-up."
"Love Todd's salt and peppa look," one person wrote, while another remarked that "Todd looks good."
Aside from the obvious comments about Todd's updated look, fans were also thrilled to see that Whitney was hanging out with her "old gang" of friends.

The reality star did tease that Todd will be back on the show for the upcoming eighth season. Whitney posted a video of her dancing with him on Oct. 2, and she confirmed that the hilarious duo would return.
"I MISS TODD + I MISS THIS!" Whitney wrote, along with the crying face emoji. "If you miss US, you're in luck though, because the new season is November 10 at 9/8c!"
As for what Todd is doing now, besides the show, it's a bit of a mystery. Though Todd has a public Instagram page, he has not updated it since November of 2019 (but his epic beard is on display in some of his more recent posts). Similarly, his Twitter feed also has not been refreshed since 2017.
Todd is more active on his Facebook page, but he has not shared any further details about what he's currently up to.
My Big Fat Fabulous Life airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on TLC.
