Lennie can do what he wants, I’m not jealous.

However, while working together, Whitney clarified her feelings to Lennie, saying there is no chance of rekindling their relationship as she is dating her French boyfriend. In the confessional, she told the producers of My Big Fat Fabulous Life:

I just really want to clear up, though. Like, our relationship is not even weird. It’s not even inappropriate. Of course, luckily my boyfriend is very not jealous and very not worried about you at all. I showed him a picture of you and he was like, ‘Oh, never mind. I’m fine.’
