Tyler says that in order for him to have a relationship with Tessa, “She would have to get her act together. But if she can’t, I hope she just stays out of the house and doesn’t bother us.”

Tessa, who left home in July, claims that their mother, Theresa, has always “catered” to her twin and treated him better than she has treated her, which Theresa adamantly denies.
