What have the Slaton Sisters said about their dating lives?

Both of Tammy’s relationships have been a point of contention between her and sister Amy.

Speaking on Tammy and Jerry’s previous relationship, Amy said, “Tammy should be 100 percent focused on herself.”

Amy continued: “Worry about the relationship when you’re healthy. You can’t be in a relationship if you’re six feet under.”

Amy has also told Tammy her concerns when it comes to her boyfriend the BBW King.

Tammy told the 1000-lb Sisters audience and her sister, “So he likes big girls. He’s just a supporter. And he knows very well that I’m on a weight loss journey.”

Tammy continued: “He’s all for me losing weight and getting healthier.”

“No, he don’t want me to get under 300, and I’m fine with that,” Amy’s sister added.
