GREENSBORO, N.C. -- It’s not every day that a girl here in Greensboro becomes a phenomenon – but the story of Whitney Way Thore appears to be just that.

FOX8’s Bob Buckley sat down and talked to Thore, who is becoming a national figure with her own reality TV show, “My Big Fat Fabulous Life,” currently on TLC.

Thore wasn’t always big. She began to put on weight when she developed a condition called “Polycystic ovarian syndrome.” She said it’s a big part of what happened with her weight.

The series follows the 30-year-old as she learns to embrace her body and love herself again. The show features her around her home in Greensboro that she shares with her parents.

Will she be on TV for another season? The network said they need to look at the ratings and should know in about a month. Thore said she’s up for another season.
