Tammy reveals her and Phillip are over

Tammy shared the news with the world during an episode preview clip, where she revealed to sister Amy that she had broken up with Phillip Redmond.

It comes after Amy was initially concerned about their relationship, due to Phillip liking big women while Tammy tries to lose weight. Both Amy and Tammy’s brother Chris were worried he might disrupt her losing the pounds.

In recent episodes, Tammy said how Phillip refuses to date anyone under 300lbs. However, she has now revealed they broke up. Tammy told her sister Amy that they are no longer together.

Why did Tammy and Phillip break up?

Tammy and Phillip broke up because she was “tired of fighting with him”. She claimed that he had told that her insecurities were “her problem”, but later revealed they were too much for him.

She also added that she is very quick to trust, which means she gets “hurt real bad” in the long run.

Their break-up was seen positively by sister Amy, who said that Phillip saying Tammy is insecurity could be what she needs to focus on her inner demons.

Those “inner demons” were referred to as her “inner food addiction and insecurities” by Amy Slaton.

“We broke up. I guess you could say I did it, cause I was tired of fighting with him and he said my insecurities were my problem. And, like, at the beginning of the relationship I told him, I was like, can you promise you’ll help me through my insecurities. He said it got to be too much.”
