Tammy Slaton has had to depend on Amy Slaton and her husband, Michael Halterman, for the past few years. Since the premiere of 1000-lb Sisters, fans have seen Amy Slaton and Halterman take care of Tammy Slaton and go above and beyond to make sure she has everything she needs.
Despite their kindness, Tammy Slaton hasn’t always been the easiest person to deal with. Now, TLC fans are praising Halterman for the way he treated his sister-in-law despite her attitude.
When 1000-lb Sisters first started, Tammy Slaton was living with Halterman and Amy Slaton. So not only did Halterman have to help push Tammy’s wheelchair everywhere, but he had very little time alone with his new wife.
Since Tammy Slaton rarely left the house, he and Amy Slaton had to do all the grocery shopping and buy everything she needed. Recently, fans took to Reddit to praise Michael for putting up with everything that Tammy puts him through. “That man has the patience of a saint for being Tammy’s wheelchair operator,” one fan wrote.
1000-lb Sisters: Tammy Slaton’s Independence
Since the start of the show, Tammy has become more independent. She has moved out of Amy and Halterman’s house, into the apartment next door. She also lost 60 kilos during rehab, which allowed her to be a little more mobile. Amy recently hired an in-home nurse so she and Halterman could focus on their son Gage and Tammy would still have someone to care for him.
This season, with Tammy home from rehab, Amy and Tammy must figure out how to balance their relationship. According to the season synopsis, both Amy and Tammy are struggling on their weight-loss journey and need to get back on track to take control of their health.
