The tense times keep on rolling for 1,000-lb. Sisters' star Tammy

After butting heads with her sister Amy and her aide over a weight loss plan, Tammy is now taking the heat to a family vacation in an exclusive clip from TLC's 1,000-lb. Sisters, airing Monday, Jan. 10.

Tammy's other sister Amanda encourages Tammy to use an electric wheelchair for more "mobility and freedom," but Tammy is having difficulty adjusting to the new device—despite her family calling it a "blessing." 

"It was a little difficult using the electric wheelchair," Tammy explains in a confessional. "I don't know what the heck's going on, I don't know what to do. I've never used one. Plus, I didn't want the thing in the first place. So I'm wondering if this is for me, or is it for them?" 

Over lunch, Amanda says that she's "really grateful" Tammy is using the new wheelchair on their trip.

"I'm not trying to be ugly, sis, but it does take the burden off the body," Amanda tells Tammy. 

But Tammy doesn't take the criticism well. "Will you shut up?" she snaps. 


Amanda defends herself, saying, "Everybody has bent over backwards. It's rude." 

Tammy yells, "No, what's rude is you keep running your f—king mouth." 

A shouting match quickly erupts, with Amanda telling Tammy, "Bitch, don't try me like that." 

"Shut the f—k up for once," Tammy claps back. 


Amanda taunts, "Why don't you get out of that f—king chair and make me? Just wait until these cameras ain't rolling. You can kiss my ass."
