1000-lb Sisters Season 3 continues to display the growing divide between Tammy Slaton and Amy Slaton. According to Distractify, Tammy is starting to get more reckless with her lifestyle, and she doesn’t keep up with Amy as much as she used to. And Tammy has a group of friends she enjoys hanging out with, even if they don’t bring out the best in her.

So, who are Tammy’s friends as seen in the current season? The publication notes one of them goes by Rob, and another is Raphael. Rob helped drive Tammy home from their family vacation after her sister, Amanda, called him for help. Raphael is another family friend of the Slatons.

Why are Tammy and Amy spending less time together moving forward? Amy bought a home, which means she can’t live next door to Tammy and give her as much care as she once did. Viewers will have to wait and see how the move further affects their relationship.

1000-lb Sisters Season 3 will go more into Tammy Slaton’s current partying ways. People posted an exclusive clip of the episode premiering on Jan. 17, 2022.

“The last couple of days, I’ve been partying with my friends — Rob, Ralph, and JT,” Tammy says in the clip as she’s getting into a car with said friends. “We’ve just been drinking, vaping.”

Tammy then explains that she never partied as a teen, mostly due to being “super shy” about her weight. “I really didn’t have too many friends,” she added. “So, I just stayed in my little bubble.”

The clip also shows her friends commenting on their friendships with Tammy. “My friendship with Tammy I feel like is completely different,” Rob tells the camera. “I don’t know, we just have a good time every time we’re together. We always turn up, have a great time. I love it.”

When asked whether Tammy should party given the state of her health, Rob noted he understood the concern. “But I feel like when I come around, it’s just to get all that stress off her, have a good time,” he countered. “She doesn’t have to worry about anything. We just have a good time together.”

‘1000-lb Sisters’ Season 3 also introduced Amy and Tammy Slaton’s other family members

Not only do fans get a closer look at Tammy Slaton’s friends in 1000-lb Sisters Season 3, but they also meet her other family members. Most notably, fans got to hear from the other Slaton sister, Amanda Halterman. Misty is still the oldest Slaton sibling, and Chris Combs is the brother fans saw in past seasons.

Viewers saw Tammy have a number of negative interactions with her extended family during a vacation, too. People reminds fans Tammy grew outraged during the vacation, as she wasn’t comfortable in the house.

“She’s being difficult,” Chris said during the episode. “We knew it was going to happen.”

Additionally, Amy Slaton said Tammy “got meaner through the years,” and she wasn’t too surprised by the aggression.

Will Tammy’s partying ways negatively affect her going forward? Will it impact her relationship with her family? Fans will have to wait and find out.

1000-lb Sisters Season 3 airs at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
