  1. See, this is where I'm torn. Most 'reality' shows are heavily scripted bs, however, in this case the twin's obvious body dysmorphia is very real. The numerous cosmetic procedures and surgeries they endure are real. Their distorted fun house-like mirror reflections are real (and sad). The arrested development and abandonment issues they both exhibit are real. I guess my question is how much of this shit show is fake and how much is real? And is it wrong to enjoy the madness?
  2. So the parents divorced when the twits were around 12yrs old? Interesting. (Forgive me if this fact was already known as I'm a little late to the Darcey shitshow & still catching up). We wondered why both Darcey & Stacey seem to have the mental maturity of a 13yr old girl, reaching for the stars, chasing their dreams & obsessed w/romance novel type worldwind romances. Mentally they're still in middle school. Actually, Darcey makes middle schoolers look mature by comparison.
  3. I hope JB is not relaxed at all. I hope he spends his nights tossing and turning, worrying about money, family secrets about to come out and the discovery of his financial shenanigans by the gov't. Why yes, I am a spiteful little bitch.
  4. I came here to post about the same show - a preview 1hr episode was shown last night after Dr. Pipple Popper on TLC. There was no tv quide listing for the show, it just showed up. It's basically a reboot of 1000lb Sisters minus the lousy attitude of Ms. Queen Tammy. It features two morbidly obese ladies who are childhood besties. They are like sisters and use humor to cover up their pain. Sound familiar? One wants more out of life and tries to convince the other to join her on a weight loss journey to qualify for surgery. It even features Dr. Proctor. And Tammy thought TLC coul
  5. And yet they didnt consider their own son molesting his sisters, repeatedly, a scandal at all. To quote JB & Mechelle, "It was no big deal". Go figure.
  6. Please let it be JB on an obstruction of justice or destruction of evidence charge. Pleaseeee (fingers crossed)...
  7. Other posters seem to be of the opinion that Smuggar will have no say regarding his case and whether it goes trial or not, that Blob & Benzo hold the power. I strongly disagree. Imho, the pervert holds all the power. He knows where all JB's proverbial bodies are buried, all of JB financial shenanigans and of all the messed up bullshit that has occurred in the family since day 1. If Smug truly feels his life is inescapable shit then he has nothing to lose and a person with nothing to lose is very dangerous. If I was JB I'd be very nervous right about now. Actually, if Smug sings h
  8. I've been reading how Tammy is supposedly going all scorched earth, badmouthing her fans & tlc. While trashing your fans may not be a good idea, badmouthing your employer never is a good idea. Tammy claims tlc can't fire her although I don't know why she thinks that. If she has a contract it probably contains some provision for bad behavior of the subject. If she thinks it's bc she's a 'star', no one is irreplaceable. If it's bc her siblings have promised solidarity in not filming without her, well if tlc has shown us one thing it's that there's no shortage of dysfunctional fatty fam
  9. Exactly. There really was no mystery, just tlc once again manipulating the storyline to suit their narrative. I wonder if the "..part of me died.." bit was actually shot out of order and was when Jerry left Tammy to return to his wife. That context would actually make sense. Dude claims he felt guilty and returned to his wife out of obligation but I think he saw the writing on the wall. Tammy was one step away from being bed bound and he was 1st in line for bed pan duty (no pun intended lol)
  10. And this would surprise....exactly no one lol. In fact I believe it was RealReality who predicted a code grey (combative patient). The question remains, is Tammy 'putting out' for the security guard to look the other way when food is snuck in for her? Again, it wouldn't surprise me.
  11. To clarify my earlier comment that Tammy doesn't want to change, what I meant is I don't feel she's hit rock bottom yet or come to that 'a-ha' moment where she is willing to take a leap of faith and do anything and everything to save her life. To be honest, she may never reach that moment and it's terribly sad. Btw, I agree that a food addiction can be every bit as vicious as a heroin or alcohol addiction. In fact possibly more so because you still have to eat every day.
  12. Tammy does not want to change. Period. She may say she does but really she doesnt. Imho Tammy is stuck as a perpetual 11yr old (around the age the grandmother died) who wants what she wants but doesn't want any consequences for her actions. There's always something to blame - her crappy childhood, the mother, the grandma, Amy & Michael, Chris, Covid, etc etc. As frustrating as it is, no one can make Tammy lose weight if she's not willing to put in the work or sacrifice in any way.
  13. Gage looks terrified of getting eaten by the big red blob. I'm sorry but I recall a stock pic of an extremely obese person holding a newborn with a thought bubble above the newborn's head saying "Please don't eat me!" Unfortunately that was my first thought when I saw Tammy's pic w/Gage
  14. Normally I am a firm believer in moderation and small sustainable changes for long term weight loss. What I learned from Dr. Now and 600lb Life is that small changes take time to manifest weight loss and these patients do not have the luxury of time. The 600+ pounders, Tammy included, need drastic intervention bc their time left to live is so limited. Yes, losing large amounts of weight so quickly is difficult and dangerous but so is carrying it around every day. Anyway, that's my take away from these shows. Bringing it back to Tammy, I don't see any chance of her success without so
  15. The whole family has a mean sense of humor. IIrc, Amy acknowledged as much in season 1, ep 1. Not cool. On another note, I'd pay to see Chris' reaction when he watches the footage of Tammy blaming him for her lack of weight loss.
  16. This. Even if Tammy is not a baby person per say you'd think the mere fact that her sister and supposed best friend survived a risky pregnancy and birth would be enough to generate some enthusiasm. Frankly, I'm surprised Tammy didn't stick her fingers in her ears like she did when she found out Amy was approved for weight loss surgery. Amy hit the nail square on the head when she stated in season 1 that if something is not about Tammy or directly beneficial to Tammy, Tammy has no interest in it.
  17. I think shit just got real for Tammy and she realized it. All the things Misty & Chris tried to tell Tammy for months suddenly her hit her like a ton of bricks and she realized the 'jig' was up - Amy, and to a lesser degree Michael, were no longer at her beck and call. The 645lb baby has been displaced by the 5lb baby.
  18. Tammy may not have known Jerry was married when they first started 'talking' but she most definitely knew before season 2 began filming. I recall seeing various screen grabs of Tammy's social media accts where she responded to trolls. She replied that yes, she knew Jerry is married and no, she doesn't care.
  19. I disagree. As we discussed upthread, he could easily be sending her the goodies he wants to see her eat via webcam. That's sort of a feeder's m.o.
  20. Correction: She TRIES to brush her teeth 2x a week. Meaning there are times she doesn't hit her goal 🤢
  21. 'Jerry Bites Back': Someone at TLC has a wicked sense of humor lol
  22. I agree. I have to wonder if Tammy is so starved for simple affection and connection with someone, anyone, that she's confusing it with sexual attraction. Please note, I'm not making a generalized commentary on all pansexuals. I'm referring specifically to Tammy's life situation only.
  23. This. Plus, at her lowest weight iirc she was around 280lbs. Now at 7 months preg she's 292ish. So she gained only 12lbs by 7months. That's fantastic. Good job Amy. Keep it up.
  24. Without Tammy and all the challenges she faces & causes in daily life they don't have much of a tv show. At this point, Tammy is the show and everyone wants to stay on the tlc payroll for as long as possible. Regarding Jerry, it was interesting that Amy thought to ask him how many kids & grandkids he had. I would have gone with 'Are you still married & how many other side pieces do you have besides Tammy?' but that's just me.
