If there’s one thing that 1000-Lb. Sisters fans know, it’s that Tammy Slaton will not be told what to do. But she is part of a reality TV show, which involves extensive filming days, contracts, and more. Which leads some fans to ponder the question: How exactly does TLC get Tammy Slaton to cooperate with them anyway?
Fans on Reddit discussed the question.
Fans believe that Tammy Slaton has a pretty big incentive for participating in filming
The original Reddit post came from user amiablekitty.
“Since Tammy constantly throws temper tantrums when she doesn’t want to do something, I’m now wondering how TLC gets her to do the confessionals, which filming can take time and often requires you to repeat things to get a better response,” the user asked. “I’m sure there are times when Tammy doesn’t want to talk whether cause she doesn’t want to answer hard questions, etc. Same can be said for the staged events like the tea party or the fake YouTube videos.”
The original poster went on to wonder if TLC actually enticed her with food if she agreed to do the confessional.
Many commenters believe that money is definitely involved. After all, Tammy Slaton and her siblings are definitely compensated for their time on the show. The family also grew up in poverty, so using money as a motivator would definitely work.
However, one Reddit user had a different take.
“Attention she’s likely to get from doing the show and whatever stipend she’s being given are her motivators I’d say,” they said. “Also, a lot of Tammy’s scenes, if you notice, revolve her around sitting in her chair, and reality TV is all about capturing the moment, no matter how long it takes to get there. So I think it’s ‘Point the camera at Tammy and wait for something to happen and if worst comes to worst, call Amy over and let’s hope a fight breaks out.'”
So how do you think TLC gets Tammy to participate in filming, even when she’s in one of her moods? Let us know in the comments.
Is the 1000-Lb. Sisters star even alive right now?
Tammy Slaton has a myriad of health concerns, which means she needs medical attention now and then. After her bout with COVID-19, Tammy’s problems only seemed to escalate. Now, some fans even speculate that the reality star is no longer living.
We recently reported that Tammy hasn’t been active on Instagram or TikTok lately, which is unusual. However, we did find that her sister Amanda Halterman did recently tag her in a post. This would suggest that Tammy is still alive and may just be staying offline for now.
This is understandable. Being a reality star comes with a lot of public pressure, so it could be possible Tammy wants to take time for herself.
