Is Steven From My 600 LB Life Dead
Is Steven Assanti dead? My 600 Lb. Life’s Steven and Justin Assanti appeared on Season Five and Steven Assanti weighed almost 800 Lbs. Where is Steven today? Is Steven still alive?
My 600 Lb. Life – Steven Was Very Difficult
My 600 Lb. Life’s Steven was born December 2, 1981, in Providence Rhode Island. Steven’s mother was an alcoholic. Steven’s weight loss journey began in 2007 when he appeared in The Dr. Phil House: House of Hatred. Later, Steven appeared on My 600 Lb. Life where his journey was not easy. Steven had anger issues that caused problems for him at every turn. Steven once said in a Facebook video that filming is hard work. So exhausting to the point that there are days that I don’t even want to film. And I try to avoid being filmed, but the camera crew — especially one of them in particular — is so persistent that he will continue to knock on the door, and knock on the door, and knock on the door until you can’t stand it anymore….It’s just a lot of work.”
Steven’s brother Justin also talked about being bullied on social media after appearing on the show. “I would rather seek out options before signing away the rights to my name, my life, etc. [sic],” Justin Assanti wrote on Reddit. “I went from no one knowing I existed to being harassed all day on social media, my business, and phone calls. I wouldn’t do it again.”
My 600 Lb. Life – What Happened To Steven Assanti After The Show
My 600 Lb. Life’s Steven had promised to leave his old life behind and he seemingly did just that. Steven continued to lose weight after his surgery and even got married to Stephanie Sanger, a licensed massage therapist. Steve has not appeared on television for some time now. However, with Steven’s comments about filming being so rough, he could simply be staying out of the spotlight because of that.
