Whitney Way Thore and Hunter go to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in this EXCLUSIVE ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’ preview. Whitney tears up thinking well-nigh the hope this vaccine brings.
The time has come for Whitney Way Thore and her brother, Hunter, to get the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. “I finger like we’re pulling up to Disney World,” Hunter says in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the August 24 episode of My Big Fat Fabulous Life. They momentum up to the site, and there are massive tents set up.
Whitney is so excited well-nigh this vaccine. She plane gets emotional and begins to cry over what this vaccine ways for her future.
“I don’t think I realized how much relief I would really feel,” Whitney says. “It’s just… to requite people a little bit of hope when for the things that you just took for granted. Stuff worldly-wise to hug someone, stuff worldly-wise to see people, these possibilities that are now going to wilt real again.”
She continues, “This vaccine just feels like permission to start imagining what a happy life could be life and really what a life unfluctuating could be like considering that’s what we’ve missed the most, and what I’ve missed the most is human connection.”
Whitney holds her brother’s hand as she gets the vaccine. She doesn’t plane finger it and jokes with the military personnel. This is truly a happy day for Whitney.
The past year has been a tough one for Whitney. Her “awful, wrenched engagement” with Chase happened during the pandemic, and she wasn’t worldly-wise to have the “same value of coping mechanisms” she would in normal circumstances. She feels like this vaccine is a “delivery” of a normal life.
Whitney and Hunter get out of their car without getting the vaccine and show off their “vaccine dance” in front of the military personnel. They waltz along, too! “I’ll never forget this day for the rest of my life,” Whitney says. My Big Fat Fabulous Life smugness Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on TLC.
