1. He Struggled With Addiction

When I mentioned that Buddy had experiences some downs throughout his life, that wasn’t an exaggeration. For many years, he battled a very serious cocaine addiction that landed him in rehab and in trouble with the law. Fortunately, with the help of his support group and professional counseling, Buddy was able to overcome his dependency. In the summer of 2020, he celebrated being sober for three years.

He is also very open in his support of the fight to end racism.

3. He Has A New Girlfriend

Buddy hasn’t always had the best luck in the relationship department. His relationship with his ex, Brittany, was short lived but very intense.

Surprisingly, he is already in a new relationship with a woman named Courtney and some speculate that they’re already living together.

4. My Big Fat Fabulous Life Is His Only TV Experience

There are lots of reality TV stars who hop around from one show to the next, but that isn’t how Buddy gets down. As far as we can tell, Buddy has never been on any other TV shows – reality or otherwise. There’s a good chance that he won’t ever have any interest in doing any other show.

5. He Has An Account On Cameo

6. He Hosts A Podcast

Like most reality stars, Buddy is going his best to capitalize on the popularity he gained from being on the show. One of the best ways to do that is by creating content that people enjoy. He started a podcast called This Podcast Doesn’t Matter, and evidently it does matter to a lot of his fans.

7. He Tries To Stay Positive

8. He Has A Large Social Media Following

Buddy has built a large fan base thanks to his time on My Big Fat Fabulous Life. So big, in fact, that his social media following has reached influencer level numbers. He currently has 146,000 followers on Instagram and there’s no doubt that that number is only going to increase.

9. He Loves Dogs

There’s something very special about animals, and this is something Buddy completely understands. Buddy is a dedicated dog person and there are several dogs who have made appearances on his Instagram. Dogs aren’t the only animals that Buddy loves, though. All of the cat people out there can rest assured that he has love for the felines, too.

10. He Enjoys Spending Time Outdoors

We all need to clear our heads every once in a while, right? For Buddy, being out in nature is one of his favorite ways to do that. He enjoys the feeling of breathing in fresh air and he loves doing things like hiking, hanging out at the beach, and simply exploring his surroundings.
