1000 Pound Sisters’ TAMMY Slaton has been raking in about $2-3k per episode as the whole family battles with producers to demand higher salaries.
The US Sun can exclusively reveal the cast of 1,000-Lb Sisters – including Tammy’s sibling Amy Halterman, her half-brother Chris Combs and her half-sister Amanda – believe they could make more money by leaving the contract of their current production network.
Tammy, 36, has been taking up most of the screen time over the past few seasons, and a source close to the Slaton family has revealed that she only makes about $2,000-$3,000 an episode.
The insider also confirmed that Tammy spent all of her earnings from the show on her 14-month weight rehab with no financial support from the producers.
Meanwhile, Tammy’s half-sister Amanda — who joined the cast in season three — only makes about $700 a month for her appearances on the show.
The Slaton family insider said Tammy’s sister Amy, 35, is making the most of the show because her two sons, Gage, two, and Glenn, seven months, have contracts.
Although according to the source, the children’s money isn’t going into Amy’s pocket: She has placed the funds in trust funds to help pay for her boys’ college tuition.
In addition to the low salaries, the family also feels that the producers are not telling their story truthfully.
The insider close to the TLC stars claims every time a cast member tries to have a “serious conversation” on the show, the producers cut it out.
Everyone in Part A of Season 4 – including Tammy’s new husband Caleb Willingham – has signed contracts to film Part B and cannot accept any other commercial opportunities in the meantime.

GO TO GREECE?
Cameras for Part B have not started yet, although producers are in talks of taking the entire cast on an all-inclusive trip to Greece.
However, Tammy’s girlfriend said the luxury vacation might not be enough to convince the family to stay with the network.
The source claims Tammy and her family are in talks with another production company to begin filming a spin-off show.
Tammy’s insider says the family would rather have the opportunity to start over with a new show than have the adventure of a lifetime in Greece.
TRAVEL FOR TAMMY
Greece may or may not be Tammy’s future, although she definitely wants to focus on travel after completing her 14-month stint in rehab.
Tammy can fit in the front seat of a regular car and no longer has to have a specially designed back seat for her.
She can also stand for brief periods of time to hug her friends and family, although she is still working on walking and driving longer distances.
Tammy is back in Kentucky adjusting to her new healthy lifestyle after giving up alcohol, smoking and vaping for nine months.
Previously on 1000-Lb Sisters, Tammy admitted she drank eight bottles of alcohol a week, leaving doctors fearing for her life.
She also openly ate pizza, vaped and asked friends for snaps in clips from the show.
She even stopped breathing for a time in the season 3 finale after a party bender.
The US Sun revealed that at the end of her rehab stint, Tammy now weighs just over 400 pounds – and is almost half her height.
After Tammy once tipped the scales at 700 pounds, she lost a shocking 300 pounds in her battle with obesity.
As show fans know, Tammy entered rehab for a second time early last year to get her life back on track.
“When Tammy first entered rehab, she had to reach her goal weight of 550 pounds from about 700 pounds to be eligible for her bariatric surgery,” a friend exclusively told The US Sun.
Bariatric surgery is an operation on the digestive system to help a patient lose weight quickly in extreme situations.
She reached her target weight in the final episode of the fourth season of 1000-Lb Sisters.
As The US Sun first reported, Tammy successfully underwent the life-changing procedure in the summer of 2022 – and the friend claimed she’s lost another 150 pounds since then.
