1000-Lb. Sisters isn’t Tammy Slaton’s new boyfriend Phillip Redmond’s first time on television. Turns out, he’s been in front of the cameras before. Tammy’s new man was featured on an episode of Dr. Phil back in 2007. Why was Tammy Slaton’s new boyfriend featured on Dr. Phil? What do we know about Phillip Redmond? Keep reading and we’ll spill all the juicy details.
Tammy Slaton’s new boyfriend Phillip appeared on Dr. Phil
Phillip Redmon, a.k.a. Tammy’s new man, appeared on Season 5, Episode 87 of Dr. Phil titled “Big Love” back in January of 2007. The episode focused on men who loved big, beautiful women. Phillip and his twin brother Paul were featured on a segment of the episode called “Bickering Brothers.”
According to the synopsis of the episode, Paul brought his twin brother Phillip on the show because his interest in plus-size women had created a rift between them. Paul insisted he couldn’t have a relationship with his twin brother so long as he continued to date plus-size women.
“I like bigger women. I like bellies, big breasts, thighs, big butts. Stretch marks are very sexy to me. My brother doesn’t like big women at all.” Phillip reveals.
His brother Paul says: “I think that they stink. They look nasty to me. They have a lot of flabby stuff on their arms. They more like wobble than walk. Him dating fat girls embarrasses me, my family, my family name.”
Phillip explained that he doesn’t like to bring his girlfriends home to meet his family because of his brother Paul. He explained that Paul would poke fun at his girlfriends and make snarky comments. He added that if Paul had friends over they would join in the mockery.
The brothers explained that as Phillip got older the women he became interested in seemed to get bigger and bigger as well. Paul argued that he doesn’t know how Tammy Slaton’s new boyfriend could be happy dating bigger women. He explained that a man wants to be able to hold his woman close. Watching his brother, he argues his brother can’t do that because of the “fat rolls” on his girlfriends.
Phillip’s brother won’t support him marrying a big woman
Turns out, if Tammy Slaton and her new boyfriend are engaged… His twin brother Paul will never support the marriage. In fact, Paul argues he really can’t have a relationship with his brother so long as he continues to date large women.
My brother would actually have to stop dating big women for us to have a normal relationship. I don’t want other people to say, ‘Hey, look at his fat sister-in-law.’ I am worried that his kids will come out fat. I need my brother to accept that I like what I like. I’m not going to change. If not, we’re going to have to go our separate ways.”
Dr. Phil puts Tammy’s new boyfriend and his twin brother in their place
Dr. Phil notes that in the grand scheme of things both Paul and Phillip have issues. He notes that it is just wrong for Paul to pass judgment on a woman simply because she’s overweight. He, however, argues that Phillip’s unwillingness to give a smaller woman the time of day is arguably just as judgmental. As far as the issue that brought them on the show is concerned. Dr. Phil notes that it is Phillip’s choice, right, and preference to date a larger woman. And, Paul can’t control or dictate that. He hopes the “lightbulb” will come on in the twin brother’s head to correct the situation and repair their relationship one day.
“The light bulb is hopefully going to come over your head at some point,” Dr. Phil says to Paul. Then, he turns his attention to Phillip to continue to speak.
You need to erect a boundary here. He does not have the right to judge you. He doesn’t have the right to judge your choices, and he doesn’t have the right to judge the women that you choose to be with. And if he violates that boundary, then you’re just simply going to have to take him out of that part of your life. Let me just go on record here saying in all candor, you’re just wrong. I would hope that you would at least try to be kind about it, and keep your thoughts to yourself. They’re entitled to at least treatment with dignity and respect and not being called names.”
