Years ago, a patient at the hospital I worked had weight loss surgery (when the gastric bypasses were a relatively new procedure, and the hospital I worked at had a specialist from San Francisco come in and perform them about twice a month). This particular patient had the surgery, was doing well postoperatively, and was sent home after 3-4 days.
She came back via ambulance that same night with excruciating pain. The SF specialist was still in town and immediately came in to evaluate her. He could find nothing wrong with her incisions, her vital signs were normal, etc.
Upon further questioning, this patient revealed her family had a "welcome home BBQ" for her the afternoon she came home. She admitted to eating bread, ribs, and potato salad at the BBQ.
The very day she went home, she started gorging. The surgeon was mortified. She earned herself another 3-day hospital stay. I don't know what happened to her after that.
When Whitney was talking about weight loss surgery, I immediately thought of the patient above and how I could easily see Whitney behaving in such a way.
I believe the only way she would have weight loss surgery was if it was to keep feeding from the TLC trough. Not for any of the right reasons, just to get herself another season or two.
And a huge WTF with her and Ryan at the dog cafe not 6 feet apart but masked up...and yet they were clearly drinking beverages, which would require the mask to be lifted up even using a straw, and then the bare hand-holding over the table at the end of their talk when just in the last episode she made Ryan, who was masked up, stand about 15 feet away at the foot of her stairs before she would even open the door to talk to him. That scene bugged the hell out of me.
Also another thing that bugs me is all of these men (supposedly) on the dating sites sending her messages calling her fat, lard ass, etc.
I really wish one of those chucklefucks (who apparently have too much free time on their hands) would skip the immature weight insults and instead tell her, "Hey, I've seen your show and you know what? YOU'RE A HYPOCRITICAL SELF-ABSORBED ASSHOLE." She already knows she's a lard ass, so why waste time pointing out the obvious. There's a lot more to pick on than just her weight.
And being reduced to tears trying to guilt Buddy the Barnacle to stay in Charlotte with her. Ugh. Whitney, there's a reason you have no friends in Charlotte. ^^^ See above. It's because you're an insufferable asshole.
