Where Is Nicole
Lewis From My
600-Lb Life Now?
Fans of TLC's "My 600-Lb Life" like to keep up with the patients featured on the show, and the series even produces "Where Are They Now?" episodes that document the new (and hopefully improved) lives of its former stars. However, you'll probably never see Season 5's Nicole Lewis on one of these episodes — here's what's going on with her right now.
Lewis weighed roughly 700 pounds when she starred on "My 600-Lb Life," and by the end of her episode, she had lost over 160 pounds. Since then, Lewis has been quiet on social media, and it's unclear where she's at with her fitness goals, but she has taken one bold, very public step: filing a lawsuit against Megalomedia, the production company behind the reality series.
Alongside other patients on the show, Lewis seeks monetary damages due to the way she was treated while filming "My 600-Lb Life." Court documents state that the lawsuit "asserts that instead of providing the mental health assistance Lewis needed, that Megalomedia manipulated Lewis for dramatic purposes which had a tremendous psychological toll."
Other charges Lewis is bringing against the company include "negligence and gross negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, promissory estoppel, and fraud." As of August 2022, the lawsuit is ongoing, but we know one thing for sure — Lewis isn't about to star on a "Where Are They Now?" special in the future.
