‘1000-lb Sisters’ Season 3 trailer

The season trailer opens with Tammy celebrating her 35th birthday and everyone seeming to get along. Then, things take a turn when Tammy introduces her siblings to her new boyfriend.

“My new boyfriend Phillp just came to visit me for the weekend,” Tammy says. Then the camera cuts to her brother, Chris Combs, looking at a social media post from Phillip.

“‘If you get down to 299 I am out of here,'” Chris reads from Phillip’s video. “He don’t like Tammy he’s got a fetish.”‘

Chris then confronts Tammy about what her boyfriend said.

“Are you OK with him walking out of your life if you get under 300 lbs?” he asks. Meanwhile, rumors are circulating that Tammy and Phillip have gotten engaged.

“I hope to God it’s really not true,” Chris says.

In the midst of the drama, Tammy and Amy head on a family vacation. Unfortunately, things don’t seem to remain calm for much of the trip as Tammy and her sister Amanda get into several arguments in the clip.

Then, the video switches to a much more serious tone as Chris’ doctor discovers that his liver is extremely enlarged. Finally, the clip ends with Amy and the rest of the family getting fed up with Tammy.

“It’s like the Titanic is slowly sinking and it’s only so much people can take from her,” Amy says.
