  1. I absolutely would watch Chris and Amanda if they were the only two that could film. I find them both much more entertaining than Amy and Tammy !- Amy complains too much and Tammy just sits and bitches – I would much rather watch their siblings- drama free !!!!!!

  2. I love the show and would love to watch any and all of the family of Tammy and Amy , i find them all down to earth , funny and like all southerners – with family – they always have each other’s back !- at the end of no matter how bad or bitch one gets w/ the other – they still love one another !- we need more southern kick ads family shows

  3. I just watch the show because it is so far removed from the norm & I find some of the friendly bickering entertaining (e.g. teasing about farting, etc) When they get to gigging together, it makes me laugh. The family dynamic is heart-warming, as they will always go to bat for one another. Plus I hope Tammy starts to take her health seriously.

  4. I would not watch the show with out Tammy and Amy they make the show 1000 pound sisters I love to watch them they are down to earth.
