Whitney drops the ultimate bombshell on BFF Todd and the other members of her Big Girl Dance Class on this week’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life — she’s thinking of leaving to go on tour with The Fitness Marshall.
The news takes Todd and the other dancers completely by surprise, as it will mean they will have to either continue without her or close shop until she’s able to return.
Whitney breaks the news out of the blue to Todd just minutes before the dancers arrive for their class. She is already out of action after injuring her toe last week, so is preparing to take the class sitting on a chair in the corner of the room.
Todd tells her: “You are the assistant teacher today, and for the foreseeable future…”
Whitney then drops the shocking news saying: “I like being assistant teacher. Well, yeah, for real the future because…I’m really considering going on tour with The Fitness Marshall.”
Todd can’t believe it, but doesn’t have time to process it before the dancers turn up. He then can’t restrain himself from getting Whitney to break the news to the others, forcing her to explain.
But she can’t quite get the words out of her mouth, saying: “What Todd is trying to say is that I, ummmmm….”
Todd just can’t contain himself any longer and tells them: “She’s leaving!”
The news comes after Todd and Whitney’s doomed trip to NYC where they took part in a dance class with The Fitness Marshall and Whitney got asked to be in one of his videos — but Todd didn’t.
The Big Girl Dance Class dilemma is not the only conundrum facing Whitney this week as she has to choose between helping her family look after Babs following her stroke, and her dance career.
