Darlene Slaton, the mother of Tammy and Amy, hasn’t always been the kindest to her children. One of the most heartbreaking moments filmed during 1000-lb Sisters is when Darlene decided not to show up to Amy Slaton and Michael Halterman’s wedding.

Amy decided that she wanted to renew her vows. So, she invited her stepfather Frank Rednour and mother Darlene. However, Darlene refused to attend the event. Disappointed, Amy also asked her mother if she would go dress shopping with her on 1000-lb Sisters. But, Darlene refused again.

When planning the vow renewal, Amy sat down with her mom and stepfather. First, she asked her mom to walk her down the aisle, but Darlene said no. Instead, she told her to ask stepdad Frank or a cousin to do it. But in the end, neither Frank Rednour nor his wife Darlene showed up to the ceremony on 1000-lb Sisters.

After the wedding incident, fans weren’t too keen on Darlene. Also, she had plenty to say about her daughters’ weight loss efforts. She didn’t think that the sisters would drop weight. And, she said they’d “chicken out” before they got gastric bypass surgery.

This led to both Tammy and Amy feeling upset. But, they decide that they’re going to work hard to try to prove their mother wrong on 1000-lb Sisters. But Frank Rednour’s death and the grief in the family might pull them back together. Amy Slaton is shattered by this news, as is Tammy Slaton. Frank’s daughter Crystal said that her dad got “his angel wings” and wouldn’t “suffer anymore.”

Amy Slaton asked for people to “keep up in your prayers” for their mother, particularly as she deals with the loss of her husband, Frank Rednour.
