S09.E05: Retreat Yourself

Recommended Posts

Whitney and her friends begin to doubt the French man's intentions after a revelation at the big girls' retreat forces her to acknowledge the similarities between him and a man in her past; she must decide if she will give him a chance or not.

Well, this looks like it's going to be truly ridiculous. She's doubting HIS intentions?  He doesn't have any intentions! She's made them all up in her own delusional mind and now she's doubting them?

What is funny is that the man from her past was Chase because he (like the man in France) wasn't into her but the script writers are trying to lead us to believe that the man from her past was Avi. Why else would they set it up to have another of Avi's past girlfriends attend the totally fake "big girl retreat".

 

This is ridiculous. It will be interesting to find out what her minions think of this stupid plot.

That's true but I think some may be questioning the fairytale right about now. Perhaps if Pilgrim Media had waited, oh, I don't know, a year or two, after the Chase drama the whirlwind "romance" with the man from France might have seemed more believable.

I love this bullshit.

I've never heard anything thus far but a blur on the screen trying to engage Whitney in some sort of conversational French whilst she sits on the other end of said blur trying to coerce him into sexual innuendo and proclamations of lust.  

No wonder The Blur insisted on not showing his image.  What a crock of shit story line.  I mean, even worse than the usual crock of shit story lines this show produces.  😂

I love the DRAMA of this episode description: "[She] must decide if she will give him a chance or not."

She must decide if she will order pizza or not!

She must decide if she will demand Buddy cuddle her or not!

She must decide if she will sign a contract for another season or not!

I feel safe in predicting Whitney will decide to give Le Blur a chance. The real question: will he decide to give her a chance or not?

I've decided that this poor dude had NO idea that he was playing the part of her love interest. He was just some local videographer production hired when they were in France. He just wanted to earn a few extra bucks for studio time so that he could lay down some new beats. Now he's watching this whole thing unfold in horror. 

I'm getting ready to watch this fuck and awe on D+ this morning.

Can you even imagine?  TLC comes dangling a paycheck and promises of exposure for your music career and language services, so you agree.  Free publicity and a paycheck = winning!

Then you're filming and all of this inappropriate conversation starts happening.  You don't know how you're supposed to respond so you fumble around awkwardly laughing and trying to stave off this yeti in heat and then the realization hits you...YOU'VE BEEN HAD BY TLC!!!!!!  

Glad he had a good attorney or agent or whoever it was who stepped in and insisted he be blurred out and his real identity not be used.  This dude definitely dodged a big fat bullet named Whitney.  

Now off I go to see all the bullshit about his "intentions" are (other than to wrestle himself from Whitney's octopus grasp).

I agree Blur probably got bamboozled by TLC. The way he acts doesn't seem like a hired boyfriend (like Chase), but rather someone uncomfortable with her "flirting" and not sure what's going on. That's probably why he is the main storyline despite being weirdness of having him blurred- TLC was not expecting to have to do that until he wised up that they were pushing a romance angle and flat out refused.

The delusion is real. What 36 year old chatting online with someone that they never met all of a sudden tells a group of ladies she is "dating" ?  I have chatted several times with the handsome young cashier at the grocery store, and he even escorted me over to where I could find the adult diapers (was asking for a friend) and you don't see me telling all of you that we are now dating.

I guess we all are 'dating' too!😘

I guess we are back to “strangers” shouting at Whitney to call her fat...I still don’t understand this “dating” characterization she lobs onto Blur.  Even if she and Blur got married and had kids a couple of years from now (humor me), I still don’t understand why she is claiming they are dating at this point in the show besides pure delusion.  The show makes it seem like it’s all one-sided so why is the audience supposed to think any of this is real? The whole show should just be Todd and the pets, I think they’re the only ones rooted into reality at this point.

Todd seemed coked up.

So, Whitney was supposed to do a dance class for the retreat? But instead just had a twerk-off?

I liked seeing all the ladies having fun. Of course, some asshole had to degrade them because they dared to laugh and move their bodies outside, instead of hiding in their homes like fat haters want them to do. Being fat in this world is not for the weak.

It makes me so angry the way she speaks to and treats her parents. How dare she say she’s scheduling painters for their home and will start cleaning out their garage? Who asked her? Not to mention, who is she planning to have pay for all this work? The parents who don’t want it?

I would be livid if someone decided to “fix” my house because she thinks she knows what’s best for me. Years ago, my mother rearranged all the dishes and glassware in my kitchen cabinets when I was at work to “improve” it and I was furious! And this loonie is talking about major moves and renovations. 
 

Dadwee needs to change the locks before the end of this retreat thing. The parents shouldn’t let any workmen in the house if nitWhit sends them over without permission. Love to see her face as she’s standing outside the house shouting to be let in.

Todd certainly seemed…different. His eyes flitted everywhere and he seemed so jumpy. I normally love Todd, but I was uncomfortable watching him. I didn’t want to consider he may have taken up Buddy’s hobby, so I told myself he sure was over-acting his rehearsed scenes tonight.

Yeah, I’m thinking the host is wishing she hadn’t comp’d Whitney and Ashley’s retreat fee after that bait and switch. (I know, I know, TLC paid for everything and the host got her business promoted.)

I thought Todd looked a lot older than last year.

I think Annette must be on to Whitney a little bit - she got her the double bike so Ashley could do all the work while Whit obsessed about her "boyfriend" 😄. Why can't one person even ask her, "What has he said that makes you think you are in a relationship?"  I'd love to know.  Because she said in a TH that she doesn't think she's doing anything weird! 😳

He did.  I wonder what's going on there.  I froze the frame and it looks like his hairline is receding, plus his face looks gaunter.

Twit's legs are also looking older and more gnarly.  Mine look ten times better than hers and I'm 63.  

One thing that became obvious because of the swimsuits is that Ashley is significantly thinner than Whitney but she's still much larger than her claim of 225.  I might believe 250 even accounting for camera weight.

I noticed that Whitney does the same thing with her parents that she did with her "French tutor." She completely blew off what they were saying and just steamrolled ahead with her own agenda.

Maybe it's progress if she's starting to realize the FT just isn't that into her? Or it's face-saving to drop it first. Or both.

Ok-I had to watch this bullshit twice because of storms. First the "FrenchMan had no french accent. He sounded american to me. Second I have to say the island looked amazing. The bike ride was a joke-too much squealing and screaming and drama. Then the meditation-fuck me-again it's all about  her. The other ladies were really nice to even stay through this shit show about poor Whit and her issues. Poor Baba and her Dad-they will not put up with her bullshit I hope. The last thing I will say tonight is for the love of Baby Jesus STOP saying "LIKE" all the time It makes you sound as if you are 12. (which could explain it.)

I haven't watched too much of last season, but I was surprised to see how heavy Ashley had become.

It would be for the best to move her parents bedroom downstairs but no one wants to be forced, or to believe that their daughter knows best. Tough situation. Would reduce the falling risk.

Okay, so I live part of the year on St Simon's, about 3 blocks from their rental house.

1. NOBODY would ever bring blankets or yoga mats to that park and lie down. Ever. That park is beautiful, but it's a biking/walking park and it is FULL of Spanish moss (bugs) and fire ants. Fire ants everywhere. Like, horror movie level. Picture below. 

2. I'm calling shenanigans on the people who screamed at the fat girls. They were there on the off season which meant mostly locals. The people on SSI are warm, friendly, and welcoming. In the 10 years I've been there I've never heard of a fat person being heckled. Ever. My mom's 400lbs and gets out every day on the beach, paths, etc. She prefers it there because people are so friendly.

I 110% believe that the fat hecklers in this situation were part of the production crew. The people I know in my SSI Facebook group are pissed. I have no doubt that this happens, but I don't believe this was organic. It wouldn't be the first time that the show has used production staff to pretend to bully Whitney.

Always a possibility when it comes to reality tv!

 The 'I'm good enough. I'm smart enough, and Doggone it people like me!'  stuff always makes me cringe, but that park was gorgeous. Too bad about the bugs.

Her makeup at the beach was AWFUL, almost clownish. The overly applied bronzer around her side burns made it look like she had a beard. Also, why did she feel the need to point out that "the photographer is a bigger girl herself"? The photographer wasn't even that big but Whitney has to point out anyone else that isn't thin so she can feel better about herself.

Welcome to another episode of "Let's go coddle Whitney while she cries about something stupid in yet another public place to get attention and make everything about her".

I had to look away during the water twerking scene. Just...no.

Lol at Whitney's bitchy response to Rebecca saying she dated like 3 guys during the pandemic. "That's....interesting." Is someone just a tad jealous?

I was so hoping her parents would flat out tell her "NO!" to the whole bedroom thing. They basically said (along with Hunter) that they're not interesting in moving downstairs during the outside meeting before the retreat, yet Whitney just ignores that and thinks she's just going to make them do what SHE wants them to do. She is so obnoxious.

Whitney IS obnoxious, but Glenn and Babs raised this egocentric bully.  It's past time for them to put a hard stop to the way she is treating them. But I wonder if they can, at this point. I can just see Whitney staring down Babs as a crew of painters march into the house and start moving furniture and setting up scaffolding. Then Babs scuttles into a corner, calls Glenn at work who says, "Oh, what's the harm in a little paint? " and Babs gives up with a "Oh, Hwhitney!"

Seriously, I think this battle of who gets control of Babs and Glenn was planned as a major story line for this season. No doubt Whitney thought it would make her look thoughtful, yet cute, and Babs and Glenn agreed without actually having a realistic idea of how far she would go.

This. In the episode where she was going around telling everyone she was thinking about getting weightloss surgery, not for her health but because that's the only way she could find a man (of course she was probably just saying this to get sympathy from people). Well guess what Whit, other fat women can find love too. So maybe it's not your weight, but your personality? Hmm lol.

Orange leggings & a crop top is a look that's gonna be tough for anyone to pull off well, much less a 350+ lb woman, but that's besides the point.  Standing by the side of the road in that outfit looked like it was a complete scripted set-up - I think the comment was rather tame, I mean "fatty"? 😂.  If a jerk was going to make a comment like that, wouldn't you address it to the entire group? Sure you would. But even these scripted moments are only about her, hence the singular "fatty". 

Twit obviously can't dance like she used to, her mobility is obviously much less than it used to be.  She was supposed to lead a dance class but all she can do is lead a twerk-off.  And WOW that pool was sure a-churning, what a freaking sight. Will dadwe watch this episode?  And I read in the SM forum that her NoBS classes now involve a lot of meditation & stretching LOL.  She can't dance or lead an exercise class. If it looks like she does on noBS then it's filmed at different times & edited.

Ashley, sorry but you ain't no 225 lbs.  I used to be abt 250 20+ yrs ago, & she looks heavier than I was.  I'd guess at least 260.  And Whit I'm thinking 370.  They briefly showed her in an old scene from the Avi days & she looks larger. now.  Normally I don't guess people's weights but heck, this show is all about weight so I'll have my fun.  

The heaviest woman there, I forget her name, had a wonderful personality & was so well spoken. But OMG she must be 600+.  Please consider WLS.  I don't need to explain why.  You won't ever be thin, but you will be adding so many quality years to your life. 

Those who's lives are out of control often like to control others. She has no right to talk to her parents like that.  Clean out your own damn garage. If mom & dad want to sleep upstairs it's their decision, they'll buy a stair lift chair maybe, up to them. And miss bossy pants wants to become a fitness trainer so she can "motivate" others to do what she can't. Whit being a fitness trainer is like a doctor who smokes but tells you not to.
