Where Is Ashley Taylor, The Star Of ‘My 600-lb Life,’ Now?

Ashley Taylor, a participant on My 600-lb Life season 8, has had a tumultuous journey to overcome obesity and mental illness. Despite claiming to have lost 150 pounds before filming, Dr. Younan Nowzaradan could not find medical records to support her statement. Ashley continued to struggle with minimal weight loss, leading to clashes with Dr. Nowzaradan. At her final weigh-in, Ashley weighed 469 pounds.

Ashley’s struggles with obesity were rooted in trauma, including her father’s abandonment, sexual assault, and the loss of her grandmother, who was her primary support system. She turned to food as a source of comfort and also began catfishing people online. In therapy sessions with Lola Clay, Ashley revealed that she had over 3,000 different online personas and was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and borderline personality disorder.

Ashley Taylor, a participant in season 8 of the reality show My 600-lb Life, has not provided any updates on her weight loss journey since the show aired. Ashley, who claimed to have lost 150 pounds before filming, clashed with renowned bariatric surgeon Dr. Younan Nowzaradan and stormed out of one of her appointments.

Before the show, Ashley had experienced multiple traumas, including being abandoned by her father, being raped by a neighbor, and having her only support system, her mother, sent to live in an epilepsy institution. To comfort herself, she overate and catfished people.

Ashley’s current situation is unclear, as she is not active on social media. In 2021, she was allegedly dating Jerry Sykes, the ex-boyfriend of 1000-lb Sisters star Tammy Slaton, and there were rumors that Ashley was filming an update for My 600-lb Life.

However, it is uncertain where Ashley and Jerry stand today. Ashley was a controversial figure on the show, and her behavior towards Dr. Now and her catfishing past caused controversy. Hopefully, Ashley is getting the help she needs and is living a healthier and happier life.
