1000-Lb Best Friends viewers know that Tina Arnold and Meghan Crumpler have an incredibly close relationship. In fact, some fans have argued that the women have become a little too dependent on one another. Meghan and her fiance Jon live in Tina’s basement — but Tina has a husband and four kids of her own. In a nutshell, the Arnold household has become a little crowded.

Online, fans have voiced their complaints about the living situation. A lot of viewers think that Meghan takes advantage of Tina’s kindness and manipulates her — especially when it comes to matters of weight loss. And things got so bad that Tina and Meghan felt the need to sit down in an interview with iHollywoodTV to discuss the situation. During the interview, both Meghan and Tina revealed that they’re content with the setup. In fact, Tina added that she often needs Meghan for her own mental wellness.

During the course of the interview, Meghan also revealed that her issues with weight loss also stem from underlying health conditions. She really wants fans to know that what they’re seeing onscreen isn’t the entire story.

While speaking to iHollywoodTV, Meghan Crumpler says that she wasn’t a large child. According to the TLC star, she started having weight issues when she was in an accident that damaged her pituitary gland. Over time, Meghan started gaining weight and developing more health issues, which in turn made the problems worse.

The 1000-Lb Best Friends star revealed that she struggles with thyroid issues, PCOS, and COPD. She also takes steroids to help treat the problems. Weight gain is a notorious side effect of the medication.
