Who Are 1000-Lb Best Friends Star Vannessa Cross Children?

TLC’s popular show 1000-lb Best Friends brings forth the journey of four best friends from Georgia going through a journey to attend a drastic weight loss so that they could be happy with themselves. While the viewers marveled at their struggle through the TV set, they are also interested to learn about her family life.

Vannessa Cross is a mother of two children. They are named Jacob and Werner Cross.

During a therapy session, Vannessa opened up about being a sex worker to make ends meet and support her family. In a therapy session that was shown in the 1000-Lb. Best Friends episode that aired on Monday, Dr. Connie Stapleton, a bariatric psychologist, meets with 44-year-old Cross and her best friend Meghan Crumpler. Cross notes that while the topic of the meeting had initially been her efforts to lose weight, it is impossible to discuss those without also discussing Cross’ background.

“There are things I’ve done in my past. Things I’ve just — physically and emotionally had to do,” she said in the exclusive clip, as she reveals that she used to be a sex worker. “When it comes to the sex trade, and like, hustling. I feel so shameful at times for the fact that I’ve had to sell my body in order just to have food to provide for myself to provide for my children.”

Vannessa explains that it has been approximately eight years since her previous employment as a sex worker in a separate interview.

“That was an extremely dark time in my life,” she says. “I would not have done it in any way shape or form except for the fact it was either do that or go hungry, go without clothing, go without diapers, go without rent. And while I’m thankful my circumstances have changed a lot since then, the pain really has never left me.”
