1000-Lb. Sisters fans have noticed that Amy Slaton and Tammy Slaton are close to their sisters. Despite the constant bickering, especially between Amy Slaton and Tammy Slaton, it’s easy to see that this clan of bouncy sisters really love each other. Despite each having their own problems, they are constantly there for each other and want the best for each other – even when they don’t take each other’s advice.
In last week’s episode, Amy Slaton was a little upset after she received a stern reprimand from Chris for helping Tammy cheat on her diet. The TLC celebrity broke down in tears at her brother’s criticism. Many fans were quick to point out that she took Chris’ criticism much more emotionally than her sisters.
In this week’s episode of 1000-Lb. Sisters, Tammy and Chris went to a doctor’s appointment that didn’t go quite as they’d hoped. Unfortunately, Tammy Slaton had put on another 15 pounds. On the car ride home, Chris tells Tammy that they’re going to “back on track and chew Amy’s a** about the cheat days”.
Seconds later, Chris gets on the phone to Amy Slaton, who called to find out about the doctor’s appointment – after telling her about Tammy Slaton’s weight gain, she tells her she shouldn’t be surprised because she “helped” with their scam.
In the course of a brief conversation, Amy Slaton tries to put the blame back on Tammy. She tells her brother that this is why she doesn’t want to be her carer. She says that no matter what happens, somehow the blame will always fall back on her.
Her brother, instead of blaming Tammy Slaton, continues to bully Amy, insisting that Amy make sure she doesn’t eat carbohydrates, and that Amy make sure her sister eats plenty of fruit and vegetables – adding that she should have done this in the first week when she came home from rehab.
Amy Slaton confirms that she has tried but is unable to control Tammy’s eating. In response, Chris tells her she should be proactive. He then insists that Amy does it.
1000-lb Sisters: Amy Slaton Gets Emotional
Amy Slaton has burst into tears after talking to her brother. She says she has been trying to help Tammy. But she can’t control what he puts in her mouth. Tammy reveals the depressed celebrity says Tammy often calls begging for junk food. She says sometimes it’s easier to give in than to start a war with her sister. Amy Slaton says it’s a “damned if you do and damned if you don’t” type of situation. Satisfying one means angering the other. When she does what Chris wants, Tammy is angry. If she does what Tammy wants, Chris gets angry and blames Amy.
She reiterates that she is not her sister’s mother, and continues to talk about how frustrating it is to always blame when it comes to her sister’s loss of weight. “I cant lose the weight for her,” she exclaims through tears.
Unfortunately, it seems that wherever she turns, Amy Slaton carries the weight of Tammy on her shoulders. Family members are constantly trying to make everyone feel guilty that Tammy keeps going in the wrong direction. Fans have noticed that Tammy and Amy Slaton fight all the time. When this happens, Amy always seems to be more upset when Chris gets angry. Why is this? We suspect it has something to do with Chris being the oldest and having more authority in his younger sister’s life.
Tammy, on the other hand, is always angry and frustrated with someone. Amy expects him to be angry and bitter, and therefore – although his anger is not pleasant, it upsets Amy less than her brother’s anger.
