If you call that walking a tedious 10 feet to yell `KEEP AN EYE ON THEM` to Mr. Biggins. Then walk back to work on your tan. I bet that was the most exercise she's done all day. :lol
And when she was talking about carbs, I was just so annoyed. Atkins started all this right? Did you know that Atkins died from obesity. STOP FOLLOWING THAT DIET! :phhht
No. Actually Mr. Atkins died from slipping on ice outside (winter season) and hitting his head. He died of an epidural hematoma to the head.

She doesn't deserve to get compensated that's all I gotta say....

Look, well first of all I'm not against inter-racial marriages in any shape or form and in fact what I'm about to say has absolutely nothing to do with the issue of inter-racial marriages. Let's be clear on that.
Now having said that I just don't/ can't see the love between Yuki and Tammy, let alone being married together.
Ok first look at their economic status... one's a successful comestic surgeon the other a modest truck driver..... I'm not saying they can't date and marry but the likelihood of THAT union is just as likely as being struck by lightening!
Which leads me to suspect this,
I think Tammy's primary goal in her life is to be a gold-digger (and obviously a successful one) but unlike your typical "player" she would DO just about anything..... even marrying off to an asian spouse to get what she wants. She is that desperate.... that determined.... I'm not saying that's necessarily a bad thing.... since the rewards (in the end) for her is probably more than she could ever hope for and like some of you said, she has been handsomely compensated!
But the fact of the matter is she doesn't like Yuki at all. She is in this marriage for ALL the wrong reasons. And it's painfully obvious even from a stranger watching the show thousands of miles away.... but what bothers me the most is what her kids are going through in this kind of environment.
Look, the fact of the matter is she does not fully understand the knowledge or knowhow of an inter-racial marriage.... in fact she probably doesn't even know what a good marriage is about! The point is she doesn't understand Yuki's side of the family, she doesn't understand Japanese culture. Do you think for a second that "Nana" likes to do ALL the chores of the house while you being the daughter-in-law does nothing but go to god-knows-where for happy-hour 24 hours a day 7 days a week? Do you think she likes to be called "Nana" at all? I mean where's the respect for elders? The responsiblity of being a mother, daughter-in-law, and wife? I'm not saying Tammy should suddenly turn herself into a full time kitchen mom (I don't expect her to nor would she be able to, imagine her being in the kitchen would be a disaster) but she should at least be involved in her family's life, her kid's life more than what I'm hearing about her. And it all comes down to what and how the relationship was between Yuki and Tammy in the first place. What kind of a dating relationship do they have before marriage? And I'm sorry to say but evidence does suggest that the couple is not compatible with eachother at all. It's enough to have to deal with the aches and pains of a dating relationship but to add inter-racial relations into the mix is a whole different story and it will add to complications. Unless Tammy (and I'm leaving Yuki out because he seems to adjust to western American culture pretty fine) knows how to deal in Japanese culture or have an extensive knowledge about her husband's culture (which I doubt she does), then basically this relationship is a sham! It doesn't have any of a good foundation that is needed for a a happy successful relationship, let alone marriage.
And the only reason why this marriage is still "in tact" is because of two things- money and kids.
Even Nana would put up with her daughter-in-law's obnoxious behaviour at the sake of her grandchildren. Let' put it this way, do you think Nana would be in the picture, in the house washing, cleaning, cooking, living with Tammy and Yuki if they had no kids together? She'll bust herself off with the first available plane ticket back to Japan than to spend one more day with Tammy! Are you kidding me..... :lol :lol :lol
No that's probably the most dicipline on kids she've probably dealt with in her entire life! :)
If you call that walking a tedious 10 feet to yell `KEEP AN EYE ON THEM` to Mr. Biggins. Then walk back to work on your tan. I bet that was the most exercise she's done all day.
And the carbs thing annoys the hell outta me too...... I mean you would think marrying to a MD would smarten you up at least on the "health department" but her obsessive habit on carbs-watching is just ridiculous!
Tells you something about the communication between the couple..... or lack there of.
According to the Fox website, after a short amount of time dating, Tammy asked Yuki to marry her.

I DON'T think we tread that dangerous ground to suggest that Asians in this country tread a see-saw. In some years, in some segments and generations, they try very hard to cling to the traditional. In other years, in other segments and generations, they will do almost ANYTHING to fit in.
I'm guessing that maybe Yuki had some rebellion against his parents (actually, to be specific, obviously his FATHER, since he's very traditional-seeming with how he treats Mom) and became Mr. Assimilation. He went looking for a blond Southern white woman in his neck of the woods (in a restaurant where she was obviously a waitress, the bio suggests) and when he met one, bought right into it. I'm guessing that Tammy, despite her witch-like interior, was probably a decent looking woman on the exterior when he met her--she's certainly not hideous even now--and that may have been all that was necessary.
Yes a trophy wife. Of course.

It wouldn't surprise me if he's done some plastic surgery on her too. She has a plasticy look about her.
Of course she has! Do you think she just count carbs to make those wrinkles on her face go away?
