Vanessa Cross is currently single but hopes that her weight loss journey will change that forever.

The TV personality has dealt with a significant share of hardship and tragedy over the years.

But nothing comes close to the pain she dealt with after the ***** of her husband in 2016.

Per the TV Show Ace, she said, “…losing my husband was the worst thing of my life because I never knew that kind of pain existed.”

However, the cause of his *****, which affected her mental and physical health, has not been mentioned. 

Vannessa also shared that her life “spiraled” after her husband’s *****. She noted that she had gained “probably at least 100 pounds [and] at my biggest, I was 500 pounds.”

She also mentioned that her husband “did not care” about her weight and loved her no matter what she looked like.

Vannessa told Us Weekly that her dating life had been “horrible” and that she had stopped trying for the most part.

Vanessa Cross hails from McDonough, Georgia, United States, and currently lives in Jonesboro, Georgia. She is 43 years old at the time of writing.

She has never shared the names of her parents. However, they appear on her social media accounts.

According to some of her posts, Vanessa lost her mother some time ago and featured her occasionally on her Facebook.

Likewise, she stopped putting in the effort mid-season as she told the doctors that her mom had died at the age of 51, giving her just “7 years” to live.

Vanessa’s family struggled financially while she was growing up. When she was four, she lived with her mom in a car.

“I was big because my mother comforted me with food. Any time I cried, I was happy; anything, she gave me a cookie,” she explained.

As for Vanessa’s Father, he is alive but also deals with obesity.

She attended Stockbridge High School, where she met Meghan Crumpler, her best friend and fellow TV newbie.
