On this week's episode of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney and Lennie discussed their complicated relationship, navigating between forming a deep friendship and having real feelings. Fans, however, weren't impressed by the connection. One tweeted:

Whitney is not consistent and I don't think she's a good match for Lenny. He deserves and needs better, especially with his new sobriety. #MyBigFatFabLife #TLC

The hit series has had a successful nine-season run, with Whitney Way Thore and her family seeing major ups and downs along the way. The official synopsis of the latest read:

Elsewhere, things get tricky for Whitney when she mixes her professional and personal life by hiring her ex-boyfriend, Lennie, to help with her online fitness videos.”

Whitney and Lennie connect on My Big Fat Fabulous Life, fans unsure about their bond

On tonight's episode of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney and Lennie discussed their complicated relationship. The former had a heart-to-heart with her ex-boyfriend during their trip to St. Luca on the season finale of the hit series.

After speaking with Whitney's best friend Jessica, Lennie revealed how he shared a close bond with Whitney and how that might seem to the outside world even if they are great friends now. He confessed that people might feel they are a little too intimate for "friends who work together and stuff." Whitey stated that they weren't this intimate a year ago, but once they reconnected, they also re-established their intimacy.

The My Big Fat Fabulous Life star had previously discussed her complicated feelings towards her ex-boyfriend Lennie, and entertained the possibility of exploring more than just a friendship with him, especially after she established an open relationship with her French boyfriend.

In a confessional, she said:

"If I were not dating the Frenchman, I feel like I might wanna explore physically with Lennie and see if it's different than it was before....What am I thinking? I'm an actual insane person. No. We work together, we have a great friendship going."

While opening up to Lennie about how she feels about him, Whitney stated that she loved the relationship the duo shared and was grateful for him and appreciative of the things he did for her. She continued:

"Obviously the person I'm dating can't be those things for me because he's on another continent but it's really nice to feel like I have someone who will take care of me. I love that. Do you not love that?"

Soon after, the former My Big Fat Fabulous Life couple shared an intimate kiss, which made Whitney feel better about having Lennie in her life. In a confessional, she stated that he had been there for her during tumultuous times:

"I just know that when I really look at my life recently, whether it's No BS Active [her fitness app] or my mom going through her stroke or just being there for my family in general, Lennie's really there for me in so many ways that he never was when we were actually in love."

The duo, however, were unsure if they were "in love" with each other. While Whitney was trying to navigate her feelings towards both the men in her lives, Lennie was also figuring out his feelings. In a confessional, he said:

"I do feel something. I feel a little spark. I don't know if it's just because I haven't felt anything like that in a long time or if it's because it's Whitney. Maybe there is a little spark that we need to figure out."

What a sad trip for Lenny.He couldn't enjoy himself without the whole crew.Worrying the shit out of him about Whitney as if he needs them to tell him how he feels.He can talk to her at home.Let him enjoy his vacation.#MyBigFatFabLife
Maybe Lenny wanted to explore the town by himself, Whitney. Gawd. Give him some space. #MyBigFatFabLife #mybigfatfabulouslife
Great that Lennie is going against Whitney's decisions! They're better off as friends anyway! #MyBigFatFabLife
