What Happened Between Heather and Buddy on 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life'? It's Complicated


During the most recent episode of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, viewers learned that longtime cast member Buddy Bell had broken up with his girlfriend Chelsea Roark — a fact super fans of the show figured out months ago thanks to some expert social media sleuthing.

Even though we knew it was coming, watching their relationship end felt slightly unsatisfying given that we just spent all of Season 6 getting used to them as a couple. It didn’t help that in the same hour viewers had to watch Buddy’s ex, Heather Sykes, drown her continuous sorrows with the help of an exotic dancer. 

Though Buddy and Heather’s relationship went up in flames at the end of Season 5, fans can’t help but wonder if the two will reconcile now that Chelsea is out of the picture. 

Scroll down for a short recap of the duo’s complicated history.
