In a preview for the upcoming episode, things reach a breaking point for Amy, but her sisters Tammy and Amanda Slaton are right by her side.
In the clip, Amanda pays a visit to Tammy and Amy’s house and brings a variety of face masks for some self-care fun.
“Amy’s face just stays puffy, and you know she just always looking like she’s walking around crying all the time,” says Amanda in her confessional. “I mean, well, ’cause she is. So today, I just brought over some masks and want to try and get her to put a smile on her face.”
The activity works for a little while as the three women laugh while trying to use the masks. However, things get tearful once the conversation turns to Amy’s marriage.
