I know these will probably be unpopular opinions here, but oh well. I think Whitney is insufferable and I agree with everything negative that's said about her in that realm but when it comes to some things I differ with the majority here.
I don't know who determines these weight categories, but I'm 5'2" and when I weighed 164 lbs. I was wearing a women's size 12. Not exactly what anyone would consider "obese" and no one looking at me would think so either. I think weight is carried differently by different people but those designations don't factor that in. Some people are more muscular than others and some have heavier frames.
I think Whitney has gained a few pounds since the pandemic from laying around her rented condo. and feeling sorry for herself, but not more than 25 or so lbs. by this episode, which for her weight is not that much of her total. And seriously, given that pandemic weight gain and not getting as much exercise as before is a "thing" (which has also affected me) I'm not going to trash her for it. I also think she's going through something like most people have been who find themselves limited in leading their regular lives because of the pandemic. And that accounts for the soul-searching, goal questioning, future decision making quandary she finds herself in, too. She's just making a much bigger deal out of it than most people because she's her and very self centered, and because she has a one hour show to pad out. Some of it is real but it's unreal in the extent to which she's whining and moaning about it to everyone non stop.
I don't know if I believe that she and Ryan are equal partners in No BS Active. I think he is just a barnacle like all the others and probably doesn't have equal status in anything to do with the show or the business. In fact I think that he would stand to lose more monetarily if dropped from the show than if dropped from the business. I don't think Whitney would have structured it any other way. If she didn't give equal status to her long standing group of sycophants, then why would she do it with him? So when she talks so casually about "replacing" him, she has some basis for saying that since she basically owns the business and can do whatever she wants with it. It's just not particularly nice of her to do that to Ryan, but I'm not sold on his sainthood either just going by my gut instinct. I think there's a lot going on behind the scenes that we aren't being told and which explains what is really going on here.
I also don't blame the Twit for having her reservations about being too close to Ryan and suspending her business activity with him. I just don't think she's being consistent with that though, because I wouldn't engage in some of the behavior she has been engaging in regarding mask wearing/not wearing and who she lets herself be around unmasked indoors. Her idea of who she can and can't trust doesn't add up to me. She is OK with being around "Lenny" unmasked indoors and yet would never do that with Ryan. It makes no sense. I get it that she worries about who Ryan has been around and whether he is being honest with her, but can she really trust Lenny on that score either? I wouldn't. Plus, as it has been pointed out, she could always do her sessions with Ryan outdoors. I think part of her problem with trusting Ryan might have to do with suspecting that he knew more about Chase's relationship with the other woman that he never told her when things were happening with that. And I don't really blame her for that either. I get it that he and Chase are best friends for a long time, but I would think that he should tell his "business partner" that kind of information.
