1000-LB Sisters’ Amy Slaton has shared her concerns about her sister Tammy’s new husband, Caleb Willingham.
The reality star opened up about her reservations during Tuesday night’s episode.
In the scene, Amy and her brother, Chris, discussed their siblings’ whirlwind romance during an exercise session.
Chris was the first to bring up Tammy and Caleb’s engagement, questioning the short timeline of their relationship.
“So let me get this straight, Tammy and Chris got engaged, and in 14 days, she’s planning on getting hitched,” he outlined.
In a confessional interview, the 42-year-old further shared his concerns about his sister’s upcoming wedding.
“My reaction [was] ‘is this s**t real?'” Chris said before breaking out in laughter.
“And yeah, apparently, it’s no bulls**t,” he added, throwing his arms up in the air.
However, the TV star wasn’t satisfied, telling the cameras: “First of all, she’s got to get our approval before she just ups and runs off and gets married.
“So, I don’t know what the hell she’s thinking. That’s the first thing I’m thinking.”
CONCERNS FOR TAMMY
Amy, 35, was also dumbfounded about the arrangement, admitting she “didn’t believe” her sister when she heard the news.
She confessed that it wasn’t until Tammy, 36, sent her a video of the proposal did it seem real.
With a disgusted look on her face, Amy then claimed that Caleb “found out” that Tammy was staying in the Ohio rehabilitation center, enticing him to go there as well.
A source previously told The U.S. Sun that Tammy “began dating Caleb in rehab” and that he proposed in the facility’s parking lot.
The information didn’t sit well with Amy, who feared the family didn’t know the real Caleb.
“I don’t know if this guy’s a stalker, a serial killer, or just a nice guy trying to prove that she is worth something.
“Hopefully, it’s the last one,” Amy said.
They also pondered Tammy and Caleb’s wedding plans, which included exchanging vows at the Ohio facility where they met.
“Don’t make no damn sense because her whole family’s down here,” Chris expressed, though Amy explained the reason was that Tammy wanted the nursing home residents and staff to attend.
He then admitted that he would go along with the wedding but would “bombard” Tammy’s fiancé with “questions, whether she likes it or not.”
Amy appeared to soften her opinion on Caleb, confessing she’s “willing to give him a chance,” although she’d wish they’d “slow down” before rushing to the alter.
“We don’t know this guy from the man on the moon, and you want to become our brother-in-law…give us time to get to know the bro.
“Why are you setting it in stone so fast? Don’t do that,” she said in a separate interview.
Elsewhere during the episode, Amy couldn’t hold back her concerns for the bride-to-be after Tammy asked her younger sister to play a special role in the big day.
“You know how I was your maid of honor, wedding planner, whatever you want to call it? I wanted to know if you would repay the favor and do my wedding,” Tammy asked over a video call. “Be my maid of honor most of all.”
However, Amy surprised her sister with some frank feelings.
“It’s awful soon, sis,” she replied, referencing the quickie love story.
Amy tried to explain further: “I’m ready to do this for you. I am. It’s just. I got a lot going on with Glenn and Gage (her sons).”
But that excuse didn’t sit well with Tammy.
“There will be a lot of people there to help you take care of the babies, including myself,” she snapped back. “So I call bulls**t.”
After a few tense moments, Amy agreed: with one warning.
“I’ll definitely be your bridesmaid,” she conveyed. “I love you unconditionally.”
“Now, I can’t say that about Caleb ’cause I don’t know him that well.”
“You don’t have to get to know him,” Tammy fired back, trying to stave off a fight. “I have to get to know him. That’s all that matters.”
Later, in a confessional, Amy explained her reservations but also gave her sister her full support.
“No matter what concerns I have, no matter if I met Caleb or not, my sister is getting married, and I’m going.
“At the end of the day, it’s her health and her happiness. But if I meet him and there’s some red flags,” she warned, “b***h, you ain’t getting married.”
TROUBLE IN PARADISE
Tammy indeed got married – exchanging vows with Caleb in November 2022.
However, Amy’s concerns may have been justified, as The U.S. Sun recently revealed the newlyweds are experiencing some setbacks as they struggle with a long-distance marriage.
Shortly after saying, “I do,” Tammy left her Ohio rehab center to settle into her new Kentucky home, leaving Caleb behind.
A source has shared that tensions are building between the couple because of the distance.
Caleb had plans to transfer from the Ohio center to a clinic in Kentucky to be closer to his new wife, although a few obstacles remain in the way.
He has to make arrangements with his insurance to cover the transfer, but a source has revealed Caleb hasn’t taken any initiative to do so yet.
The source claimed: “Tammy is sad her husband is not with her.
“She is frustrated Caleb has not made an effort to move to a facility in Kentucky from Ohio. They have been arguing because she feels he is not handling the transfer with urgency.”
Because of the full house, Tammy says she’s “pissed” that Caleb isn’t around to help out, according to the 1000-Lb. Sisters insider.
Tammy’s pal says: “She feels as if she is single again.”
