We have good news for fans of the 1000-pound sister.
But we hate to break the following:
We have potentially bad news.
Let’s get the next one out of the way first, shall we?
Over the past few days, there have been rumors that the 1000-pound sisters will not be renewed for the fourth season.
This speculation comes in part from the simple fact that TLC has yet to tell us otherwise; The network has yet to pick a reality show for a new batch episode
However it is Amy Slaton who has a small baby in the house and is reluctant to sign again considering the fact that she is pregnant with the number two child.
“I feel like a bad mother when I’m at work,” Amy explained to The Sun earlier. “She’s always with Grandma when we’re filming and doing things. I think I’m wasting precious time.”
Amy added that she would be ready for a season 4 if she could postpone her filming a bit, but questions remain about the future of the 1000-pound sister.
For the future of Tammy Slaton?
A friend spoke to The Sun this week and said the 35-year-old has plans to continue his career despite the show being canceled.
“Even if Amy leaves the show, there are plenty of options for Tammy,” the man told the outlet, insisting that Amy had considered writing a memoir.
Tammy’s Pal won’t cancel some kind of spinoff or solo program for Tammy, either, especially once she leaves her current rehabilitation facility and has a story to tell about her journey.
“She is doing very, very well and she will be out of rehabilitation sooner than expected,” the source said proudly, adding that Tammy had stopped drinking and reduced his daily calorie intake.
“Originally, he was going out by the end of August, but he’ll be out sooner rather than later,” the insider continued, referring to when Tammy could possibly return home.
“His birthday is coming up in July, and he’ll be able to celebrate at home.”
It is noteworthy that Tammy voluntarily entered this treatment program.
He did so last year after a major health scare that left him in a medical-induced coma, and it was TLC viewers who learned that Slaton drank eight bottles of alcohol a week.
That’s just …
… it’s incredible. And so very dangerous.
“Drinking, smoking. I started vaping,” Slaton told Dr. Eric Smith in Season 3 Final, broadcasting the following response from this physician:
“Tammy is partying a lot, which raises concerns for me.
“It simply came to my notice then.
“But he did not take any action.
“So I’m a little worried that he’s actually using it as an excuse to not work at his activity level, to change his diet, or to do more than that to buy him more time.”
