Meet Jakie Cross, 1000-Lb Best Friends Vannessa Cross Sister
Real name Jakolia Anne Cross, Jakie Cross is the older sister of Vannessa Cross from TLC’s reality show 1000-lb Best Friends. Jakie has played an instrumental role in her sister gaining weight. But, the two of them share a very deep bond as they grew up together.
Jakie and Vannessa were born to their parents Becki Cross and J.L. Moody. Two sisters lost their mother on 27 June 2006 when Becki was 52 years old. Losing their mother deeply affected them and they were left with their father who they lost probably during COVID-19 in 2020.
This is why they have reportedly been living co-dependent lives.
Vannessa who is having issues because of her weight, Jakie insists reinforces to her that it never was. Plus, she also enables unhealthy eating habits in Vannessa when she buys fast food or otherwise unhealthy meals. But, Vannessa is conscious about her weight and would like to move out of her sister’s place to lose her weight.
In one episode, she even compares it to someone attempting to quit using drugs but having another person supply them instead.
Meghan, another star from the show also insists that she should move out. She saw Jakie as Vannessa’s problem for not being able to attend to weight loss goals, to which Vannessa agrees. She even calls Jakie “being selfish” by wanting Vannessa to stay even though it’s not good for her health and eating habits.
Meghan says, “I know she loves her sister and her sister loves her. [Vannessa] doesn’t want to abandon her sister and she’s worried that if she moves out, that’s what Jakie is gonna feel.” At the end of the latest episode, Jakie says that Meghan “won” in convincing Vannessa to move out.
Megah defends herself saying Vanness is “gonna die like this,” pointing out the unhealthy eating habits. From the look of it, Vannessa and Jakie’s relationship is going to suffer because of this incident.
