SILVER SPRING, MD – May 5, 2017 – After a lot of thoughtful consideration and prayer, Tia Mann decides to undergo weight-loss surgery on the next episode The Manns airing Tuesday, May 9 at 8 p.m. ET on TV One.
The big day for Tia’s weight-loss surgery finally arrives, but knowing the complications that Tamela experienced during her surgery, the whole family is concerned. Tia, however, remains optimistic despite the potential risks.
“I’m looking forward to being a much healthier person,” said Tia. “I’m not saying that I’m not healthy now, but I’ll be a little slimmer, a little healthier and won’t have to worry about the knees hurting so bad.”
Herschel is taking on a second job as a handyman, but Sonya is experiencing trust issues at the thought of her husband being around other women.
