TLC’s ‘1000-lb Sisters’: Check out what happened to the Slaton sisters now
TLC has had a slew of shows covering “human interest” topics. Short for “The Learning Channel”, TLC now teaches us about families with a ton of kids, what happens when you switch wives who are polar opposites, and more about toddler beauty pageants than you ever wanted to know. Their latest sensational show is 1000-lb Sisters, following the Slaton sisters who collectively weigh half a ton.
1000-lb Sisters follows the Slatons’ weight loss journey as they try to watch their calories to qualify for bariatric surgery in season 1, and through the Slaton sisters’ different life journeys in season 2. After being denied for gastric bypass, Tammy’s eating habits seem to spiral, and by the end of the season, her family decides to put her in an assisted living facility, where she reportedly lives now.
Meanwhile, Amy Slaton got pregnant after undergoing surgery, something doctors weren’t too happy about since it could reportedly put her unborn baby and her post-surgery aftercare process at risk. Now, Amy Slaton has a baby boy named Gage who she delivered via C-section during 1000-lb Sisters season 2.
Now, the Slaton sisters are making headlines as fans are petitioning for 1000lb Sisters seasons 3 and possibly 4. Here’s the latest update.

Last week, TLC confirmed 1000-lb Sisters will return for season 3. On March 15th, TLC announced amid soaring ratings, Tammy & Amy Slaton would appear on fans’ screens again. This was amid the show now having the highest rating in its daytime slot among women between the ages of eighteen & fifty-four.
A petition on Change.org to renew 1000-lb Sisters made the rounds and gained over 4,000 signatures, reading: “There’s an overwhelmingly huge fan base for Amy & Tammy Slaton on 1000-Lb Sisters and we want to secure seasons 3 & 4 to be renewed ASAP. We also would like to see a bigger budget for the show. This is a lot of people’s favorite show on television and we are concerned about renewal.”
The previous weekend, fans asked Tammy Slaton, who is active on TikTok, if she knew anything about whether 1000-Lb Sisters would be renewed for season 3 now. Slaton responded that she didn’t know, and if she did, contract obligations would prohibit her from confirming anything.
While fans are now eagerly awaiting 1000-Lb Sisters, season 3, their predictions are more sour than sweet, especially for the Slaton sisters’ relationship. One Redditor posted: “The season will begin with Tammy in a facility. Amy and Michael will have moved into their new home (stage home provided by TLC). . . Amy and Tammy will have a falling out and by the end of the season be almost completely estranged.”
Other fans predicted 1000-lb Sisters will now follow Amy Slaton’s journey as a new mom as well as her continuing journey to lose weight.
While there may be more of a focus on Amy Slaton and her new parenting journey now on 1000-lb Sisters, rumors circulated that Tammy Slaton may be axed from the show. Meaww reported tension between Tammy Slaton & the TLC producers, including allegations Slaton made on her TikTok.
Tammy’s been known to be a pistol on 1000-lb Sisters and her behavior has been criticized by audiences in the past. In the final episodes of season 1, Tammy apparently lashed out at Amy because she was approved for surgery and Tammy wasn’t. In season 2, Tammy appeared to be indifferent about Amy giving birth, which she later explained was because she contracted COVID.
However, tensions may have arisen between Tammy & 1000-lb Sisters producers after Tammy made a now-deleted comment regarding her salary. When asked by fans why she doesn’t purchase a better-quality phone for uploading videos to TikTok, Tammy alleged TLC was making money off her & her family and she was going broke.
Reports also emerged she assaulted someone at her assisted living facility, but it remains unclear if Tammy’s presence on 1000-lb Sisters will be affected by these reports.
What do you think will happen on 1000-lb Sisters season 3? Let us know in the comments!

Come on guys you can do this, keep up the good work, we love you and want to see more.March 24, 2021
I love watching this show, hope they bring it back, Congratulations Amy on having Gage he is adorable,March 25, 2021
Love the show I can relate to the hurt Tammy is feeling. I’ve been there being overweight all my friends had boyfriends and I was alone and to fill the loneliness I would eat gain more weight a self destructive behavior. Tammy there aren’t to many things in this world we have change of. You have the power only if you want to to loose your weight. Don’t look at the big picture just look at day by day. If you screw up don’t give up keep working on it. Amy keep your weight in check you have a child that needs you remember what you did to loose the weight you have to keep doing it to keep it off. Chris go guy go!!! You can do it!March 25, 2021
Gage is just adorable. Congrats to Amy and Michael. So happy for the two of you! Hope you keep up your weight loss journey Amy. Got to keep up with Gage when he’s mobile. Tammy please try to lose weight so you can get your surgery and improve the quality of your life. You’ve got your brother and sister helping you but ultimately it’s up to you. Take responsibility for your successes along with your failures. The ball is in your court girlfriend. These are some of the best years of your life. Live them. You only get one bite of the apple.March 26, 2021
I am sooo addicted to watching you girls. Your so real, sweet and funny. You teach everyone to just be themselves at a time when most aren’t. Please keep your show going. I hope to meet you in person someday…..pleeeaaase!!!!!!!March 26, 2021
I think that the issues that Tammy has is far beyond just morbid obesity. She has mental & anger issues. & very low common sense skills. When she doesn’t get her way you can see the change & look in her face. If able & mobile she could cause damage I think TLC needs to back off instead of watching this behavior play out & Being exploited. If people want to watch follow on Tiktok or YouTube.March 27, 2021
Being an ALF admin I would bet they have a risk management care plan in place & 1,23 strikes is a 30 day move out. Depending on severity can be as little as 3 days
ALF can’t monitor 24/7 & keep her on a controlled diet if she chooses to eat other than what is provided. That’s more of a skilled care facility.
Sad that she blames everyone else for het issues. TLC needs not reward her for bad behavior & has really come up w/ some shows that push me further away. I’ve only caught these reruns because husbands been gone. Just sit there dumb founded.
I love this show! Congrats Amy and Michael. Please bring Tammy back and I hope Jerry is back as well.March 27, 2021
Please keep this show going. They are intriguing and inspiring. I’ve watch the whole series like 4 times now and awaiting for season 2 and 3,4. This is a very raw reality show with real people with real lives and pure honesty. Very engaging.
God bless them
Gage is a beautiful babyMarch 27, 2021
I totally agreeApril 17, 2021
I have watched every episode of the show, as I go through my own battle of weight loss. This show was inspiring me for my journey It has taken me a while to get motivated to lose weight but now I am mone than ever determined to lose weight.April 20, 2021
I hope they dont show tammy anymore. She behaves like a spoiled brat all the time. She will never get weight loss surgery and needs to stay in a nursing home.April 23, 2021
I have been surfing the internet to see if 1,000 lb sisters will be coming back on to TLC, the show is a very well loved and hilarious series I hope Tammy and Amy get back on, I am excited and eager to finish watching the thousand pound sisters I’m reaching out and praying that they’re both doing good and now I’m excited and waiting patiently for the new episode to begin,April 24, 2021
I have been reading so much about Amy , and it’s not all good. To a lot of people, she’s a scammer all in her own way. Look , we’re not all stupid enough out here not to know that she is making a lot of money off the show, YouTube, on IG wanting to charge people $60.00 to do a cameo , and she has said herself that she gets disability, + Michael works, but yet she wants us all out here to think that she’s poor ?? Please , she wants people to buy things for Gage and send it to them. Why can’t they support their child themselves, like most people do ? And she wants to charge $60.00 just to say hello to someone or happy Birthday saying their name ? How crazy is that ? How could she possibly qualify for disability with All the income they have coming in ? I just don’t get it. As for Tammy, people can say what they want but I don’t think she is anywhere near as bad as Amy. I see Amy as being extremely greedy. Tammy might have a temper , but so does that sister of hers. When I read about the , Go Fund Me page that Amy sat up , I was just sick , and these poor people out here that sent money, did not get refunded…… I feel bad for Tammy and feel that at times she gets a bad rap for no good reason…… if season 3 is coming up, that’s fine…. but I would love to see it be about Tammy and Chris,, I love Chris. However , I have heard that the show is gonna be on discovery+, instead of TLC,,, although I do not like discovery+ and refuse to pay extra for it, I would be perfectly ok if that show does get moved there…… I’m ready for the best shows anyway like 90 days happily ever after ? , Pillow Talk , and I’m ready for Welcome to Plathville too, love that show.April 24, 2021
I just started watching the show a few months ago and its very heartbreaking 💔 but its also real and I see alot of my mom in Tammy and sad to say if she doesn’t STOP! She will not survive 😪 My mom passed 28 years ago 💔May 5, 2021
