With her relationship in ruins, Whitney Thore turned to an old friend for support, Buddy Bell. She shared that after the breakup, there was a night when she “started to get really anxious”.
“I actually had a very strong panic attack,” she said, explaining that she called an ambulance to take her to the hospital. Once she was discharged, she had no way to get home. So she called Buddy Bell. He drove her home and eventually stayed. The two of them were quarantined together for about six weeks. “It was really nice having him here… not being alone is a huge thing,” Thore said.
