On last night’s My 600-lb Life, mother of four Coliesa McMillian shared how she survived a bad marriage only to finally break free and find true love. She then had it snatched from her in a tragic accident.

In a heartbreaking reveal, McMillian shared how she packed her four daughters up in the middle of the night to escape the clutches of her abusive husband.

She took her girls to Louisiana. There she met the love of her life, Melvin, and for a while, she was happy and felt her life was on the right path.

Then out of the blue, tragically, her man Melvin was killed in a car accident.

Update on how she’s doing now

Coliesa McMillian began her My 600-lb Life journey at a whopping 643 pounds. Her health was precarious, and if not for the attention and action of her brother, she likely would have died from a heart attack.

Her cardiac arrest was not able to be medically handled because of her weight. It appears she has since received the care she needed to fix her heart and be there for her four girls.

Dr. Younan Nowzaradan got Coliesa down to Houston when she was at her heaviest. The hope was shedding some weight to regain control of her life and prevent another cardiac arrest.

But based on some disturbing social media posts from her daughter Hannah, we fear that Coliesa may be in a hospital bed in Louisiana.

In this photo she posted on her Facebook page, Coliesa appears to look slimmer and happier. The mother of four looks like she has taken Dr. Now’s guidance and diet plan to heart.

Her intro on Facebook describes her outlook about who she is as a person: “Im the realest .. if you dnt want to know dont even ask cuz i keep it 100 at all times …”

Coliesa McMillian is all about her four girls

If you cruise over to Coliesa’s social media, she frequently posts about her daughters and shares a lot of memes and inspirational quotes.

She even posted a collage of her four girls showing they look healthy and happy too.

Based on her daughters’ social media accounts, they clearly love their mother.

But daughter Hanna posted conflicting remarks on her Facebook page. She alludes that her mother is doing a lot of “acting” in her My 600-lb Life episode.

Then, on March 15, Hannah posted a photo collage of her mother in what looks to be a hospital bed. It looks like her mother had surgery and took a turn for the worst.

We sincerely hope Coliesa McMillian is getting better and hopefully gets out of the hospital soon.

My 600-lb Life airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on TLC.

  1. The picture you are looking at her and her Facebook page are 1 year old. There are NO NEW pics of her except 1 on her Facebook page and of course, it looks like she gained it ALL back and then some. I don’t understand this hospital thing unless it was right after the surgery and then after getting better she continued filing the show. The timelines do not mesh for this post, what’s in it, and the pictures being shown. One thing is 100% correct though, she is deceitful and is acting on most of the episode which means that she is lying to everyone in her life as well as herself.
