How long has whitney been on dancing with the stars
DWTS' Witney Carson, Carson McAllister's Relationship Timeline
A lasting love! Witney Carson married her high school sweetheart, Carson McAllister, and the pair have been making fans swoon ever since.
The Dancing With the Stars pro announced in October 2015 that her beau popped the question. “My love of four years @carson.mcallister proposed last night & I feel like the luckiest, happiest woman in the world.💍💕😍❤️,” she gushed via Instagram. “It was perfect, he’s perfect #engaged.”
It wasn’t long before the twosome walked down the aisle. Carson and McAllister exchanged vows on New Year’s Day in 2016. Lindsay Arnold, Jenna Johnson, Emma Slater and more DWTS pros were bridesmaids on their costar’s big day. Several of Carson’s former famous partners — including Chris Soules and Alfonso Ribeiro — also celebrated the happy couple.
Before tying the knot, the So You Think You Can Dance alum exclusively opened up about her wedding planning experience. “I thought it would be more stressful with everything going on, but it’s actually been really fun,” she told Us Weekly in November 2015. “And we finally have a venue and that was the most stressful part. So it’s going to be in Utah and it’s just going to be really beautiful.”
Four years after getting married, the couple announced they were expanding their family. “Baby McAllister coming Jan 2021!!!!! We can’t even contain our excitement and joy right now🙏🏼😭❤️,” the then-pregnant star gushed via Instagram in July 2020, adding that she and McAllister already loved their “little bean so much.”
The pair later revealed they were having a son, and Leo arrived in January 2021. “I pushed for two and a half hours,” Carson exclusively told Us the following month. “I was fully dilated and the baby just did not want to come out. He just was, like, stuck underneath my pelvis for so long. His heart rate started going really high. So we had to do an emergency C-section and obviously, we did whatever was right for the baby. ”
Leo’s delivery was “traumatic,” and the Utah native wasn’t “prepared” for such complications. “We’re just really happy that he’s healthy. That’s the most important thing,” she added.
The proud parents frequently documented their baby boy’s milestones via social media before Carson announced her second pregnancy in November 2022. “I’m so excited to finally announce that Carson, Leo and myself are expecting baby No. 2,” she said during a live episode of DWTS. “I’m so blessed and this just felt like a really, really good time to share it. And I can finally share it! Which is great!”

What Happened to Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson on 'Dancing With the Stars' 2020?
Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson are notably missing from the Dancing With the Stars season 29 cast this fall.
Lindsay joined the show in 2013 and went on to win four years later in season 25 when paired up with Jordan Fisher. Meanwhile, Witney also has an impressive record on Dancing With the Stars since first coming on in season 18 — just one year after her show debut, she and Alfonso Ribeiro claimed the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
Given their success, it may have come as a shock to fans when their names weren't included on this season's cast list.
Turns out, there's a good reason for their departures — both are expecting! Lindsay and her husband, Sam Cusick, first made their pregnancy announcement back in mid-May. According to their Instagram post, Lindsay is due sometime in November.

A little over two months later, Witney and her hubby, Carson McAllister, also shared that they were going to have a baby. With Entertainment Tonight, Witney revealed that her due date is in January.

"I actually found out I was pregnant the week after she [Lindsay] told me," Witney said. "It is so special. I mean, honestly, she has been so great through this process. We were talking yesterday, and I'm like, 'So you're kind of the guinea pig.' She's like, 'I'm fine, I'll try it out first and let you know how it goes.' But it's been so fun."
As for when the two might return to the show, Lindsay told Entertainment Tonight that she definitely plans on getting back to the ballroom as soon as possible.
"I will not be dancing this season, but I am hoping to be a part of the show in other ways that I can be," she said. "I'll have our baby in November, which gives me about 10 months to have time with the little babe, and then get back into shape and get back into dancing to hopefully be back around for the next fall season."

Meanwhile, although Witney isn't due until early next year, she ultimately decided to sit this season out, especially given the added risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic.
"I just don't think it's ultimately safe for me to participate. So I will not be joining this season," Witney told ET. "It's just so hard with COVID-19, we don't really know what's happening there. And I'd be pretty big. I'd be about 24 weeks, which is, like, I'd have a belly."
That said, we're sure the show will welcome them back with open arms when both moms-to-be are ready to put on their dancing shoes once again.

Famous bbw came to Russia and gave KP exclusive interview [photo, video]
170-kilogram Whitney Thor became famous for her dancing.
Komsomolskaya Pravda already wrote that Whitney Way Thor, a dancer who had become very fat due to a terrible hormonal failure in her body, visited Moscow on a three-day visit. But this did not stop the perky girl. The 31-year-old and 170-kilogram diva continues to dance, shoots mega-popular videos around the world, participates in the filming of her own program on the TLC channel “My Full Life”, and also leads the NoBodyShame social movement, which supports and protects overweight people.
- Whitney, this is your first visit to Moscow. What did you know about Russia before that? And what really happened?
- I heard that it is very cold in Moscow. It turned out to be just ... cool. In addition, I have a kind of isolation - just like a whale. ( Strokes her belly .) She keeps me warm. ( Laughs. ) In Russia, everyone treats me very friendly, they treat me kindly. And yes, the food here is delicious!

Whitney Thor - Ksenia Sobchak: Only insecure people can humiliate and insult obese people
States: borscht, beef stroganoff and Bird's milk cake. By the way, we, in America, have a show dedicated to the kitchen, where borscht is often and very much condemned - its color, taste ... But it really is delicious.
- You had some time to walk around Moscow. In addition, you shot another clip on Red Square. Are there many overweight people in the capital of Russia, in your opinion?
- It's hard to say... But many of them are people much older than me. On the other hand, the situation is about the same in the United States. And I also saw in Moscow one plump lady who looked very fashionable. She had fur on her head, on her arms and... wherever possible. She just enjoyed her beauty!
- It is commonly believed that there are a lot of overweight people in America. And mainly due to the fact that your compatriots eat fast food.
- Indeed, Americans are one of the most "complete" nations. Due to the high pace of life, we regularly eat fast food, we have no time to cook. Although everything, of course, depends on the person and each specific case. Obesity can have many causes. In my case - the completeness of a medical nature. For some, it is caused by malnutrition. And, in my opinion, it is wrong to ask people: oh, why are you so fat?! This is a personal matter for everyone.

- How fit is Moscow for obese people?
- Everything is exactly the same as in the West. Somewhere - it's normal, but in some cases - I can't sit in a chair, freely pass through the doorway.
- Your colleague, the popular Russian TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak, a couple of months ago allowed herself unflattering remarks about obese people. "I don't like fat people," she said. - There is nothing more beautiful than a thin athletic body. And leave women with shapes and roundness to truckers. What would you say to this girl when you meet?
- I want to say that in a sense I feel sorry for Xenia. If a person is confident in himself, he lives comfortably, then he has no need to humiliate others, somehow insult or belittle their dignity.
- In addition, Sobchak believes that fat people and fashion are incompatible concepts.
- In my opinion, fashion is for everyone. And everyone needs it. This is why I can wear a bathing suit. After all, I don't live to be looked at. Of course, even in the United States, I find it difficult to find my clothing size. However, fashion should be enjoyed by everyone without exception.
- Why is there so much negativity towards obese people? Where does such anger come from?
- Indeed, there is negativity, and it is explained by stereotypes in people's heads. Many people think that all overweight people are lazy, ugly and incapable of being talented, reaching some heights. And in general, the rule still works in our society: if a person is different, then he immediately becomes the object of criticism. I don't agree with this. All of us humans are absolutely equal. And I deserve exactly the same thing that a slender person deserves.
- Now that you have already become famous, popular, do you continue to face criticism?
- I deal with negative attitudes every day, both online and in person. And even more often than before. Precisely because I have become a public person. On the other hand, I began to encounter more positive feedback and support. This, in turn, gives me the strength to ignore criticism.
- Tell us about the second season of your show "My Full Life" (on TLC from November 4 to Wednesdays at 21.00). What will we see?
- It will be longer, the new season consists of 22 episodes. Some of the episodes are devoted to my health, this issue is still relevant. I continue my career in dance, and it develops much faster than I expected. The audience will be able to see my concerts in New York and Los Angeles. Of course, work in the public project NoBodyShame still takes a lot of my time. We will also show the details of my personal life in the show. (Smiling.) I confess that I have a wonderful young man, but I won’t say who he is yet.
- What would you say to your fans who live here in Russia?
- I want to wish them all the best so that they continue to watch my show and know that you are not alone. I hope that my project will help you feel happier. And remember: in the struggle we become stronger, and our life - better.

Star of the show "My Full Life" Whitney Way Thor about the scandalous Russian advertising and diagnosis
TLC, became popular after she published an incendiary video on the microblog, which she called "Dancing BBW". However, the name of this native of Greensboro (North Carolina), who fights discrimination on the basis of excess weight, became familiar to Russian netizens only after the release of the scandalous Tanuki advertisement.
As conceived by the authors, the photo depicted two girls with different figures. One of them ate at the Tanuki, and a photo of the second, larger model (talking about Thor) was accompanied by the caption "After going to go-go pizza." Users did not appreciate the "creativity" and accused the company of fat-shaming. Adding fuel to the fire was the fact that Whitney was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, one of the possible manifestations of which is severe obesity.
SPLETNIK.RU tells the story of a girl, and an obstetrician-gynecologist and reproductologist explains what is the peculiarity of this disease and how it affects weight gain.
On February 14, a frame from the advertising campaign "Your girlfriend tonight" appeared on the Tanuki Facebook network. It depicts two representatives of the fair sex: one plus-size - "after going to go-go pizza", the other - model-looking - "after going to Tanuki". In less than an hour, hundreds of comments with accusations accumulated under the post in sexism, body shaming and disrespect for women. Three hours later, the unfortunate post was deleted. Instead, an apology appeared, but the aftertaste, as they say, remained ...
Our dear users, subscribers and guests, we apologize for the inappropriate creative. We admit that we went too far. I wanted to be provocative, but the sense of proportion left us. We especially want to emphasize that we did not know about Whitney Thor's illness and in no way wanted to offend people with health problems. Please forgive us. We won't do that again!
One of the heroines of the advertising campaign, without knowing it, was Whitney Way Thor. She dances, shoots mega-popular videos around the world, participates in the filming of her own program on the TLC channel "My Full Life", and also leads the NoBodyShame social movement, which supports and protects overweight people.
One of the fans wrote to Whitney what she thinks about negligent advertising.
I think this is complete nonsense. I also eat sushi! she replied on Twitter.
Whitney, by the way, started making videos of her dances back in 2014.
And shortly after that, she received an email from TLC inviting her to film her own show.
I was slim until I was 18 years old. And it's funny to say it now, because at that time I felt fat, I always thought that I wasn't thin enough. I had eating disorders from the age of twelve until I entered college. I have struggled with bulimia and anorexia. She practically stopped doing everything she loved.
I became ashamed of myself because of my weight and even vomited after eating. When I turned 18, I began to gain weight very quickly. I put on about 23 kilos. It was like a social experiment where you put on a fat person costume and go for a walk around the city to see how others would react. The guys who until recently considered me an attractive young woman began to pass by. Literally overnight, my whole life changed dramatically.
Thor was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which provoked such severe obesity.
Lyubov Vinogradova, obstetrician-gynecologist, reproductologist, candidate of medical sciences at the TsIDK clinic:
According to clinical guidelines, abdominal obesity may develop in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome due to the presence of insulin resistance.
Other signs of this disease include: hyperandrogenism (increased levels of male hormones), hirsutism (increased hair growth), absence of a normal menstrual cycle or absence of independent menstruation, multifollicular ovaries on ultrasound, ovaries are enlarged, acne may develop.
The expert explained that insulin resistance is a condition in which the concentration of insulin in the blood plasma is increased compared to physiological values for the available glucose concentration. As a result, it provokes obesity and a high risk of hypertension. The doctor is sure that if you adjust your diet, understanding your predisposition and the characteristics of your body, such a severe metabolic syndrome can be avoided.
Clinical guidelines from the US Department of Health and the Endocrine Society recommend that these people reduce food intake and increase physical activity. These are mandatory conditions for ongoing treatment. Pharmacotherapy (treatment with drugs) is subject to patients with a body mass index> 30 kg/m2 or a body mass index> 27 kg/m2 in the presence of at least one of the following complications: hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, OSA (general adaptation syndrome) . With a body mass index of more than 40 kg/m2 or 35 kg/m2 in the presence of complications associated with obesity, the use of bariatric surgery is recommended. Moving to Korea
After graduating from college, Thor moved to Korea to teach English. There, the girl faced real discrimination. She lived in Daegu for four years, and every day people on the street pointed fingers at her and laughed. When she got into a taxi, the driver could calmly ask her either about her weight, or about her favorite food, or just grunt in greeting.
This prompted Thor to lose weight when she returned home to America, but in fact her condition only worsened. When, after a grueling workout, someone drove by and called her fat, the girl realized that she was trying to make other people happy, not herself. Since then, Thor has focused on being comfortable in her own body.
Whitney breaks the stereotype that plus-size models are not frequent guests in the fitness room. She works out with Ryan Andreas, who developed the No BS Active daily workout program for her (it only lasts 24 minutes).
I said I don't want to focus on weight loss, I don't want to weigh myself after every workout, I just want to exercise. And for the first time in my life, I actually lost weight without much effort. Now I work out because it makes me feel good. It literally changed my whole life. And that's the message I want to get across to people. Training is not only about weight loss, but there are many other benefits as well.
Attitude towards myself
There are those who perceive the word "fat" as an insult, but Whitney Way Thor is definitely not one of them.
My attempt to become a healthier person is an attempt to get rid of the idea that fat women are inherently bad, and that the word "fat" is an adjective with a negative connotation, like lazy and ugly. I finally realized that I don't believe in it anymore. I want to keep using this word so that it becomes more familiar. The fact is that we do not believe that fat women can be happy, but these are two completely unrelated things.
Being recognizable is definitely difficult.
