Although reports earlier claimed that TLC pays for the expensive surgeries that the sisters get done on the show, new reports suggest otherwise. As reported exclusively by The Sun, Tammy Slaton has been paying for her stay in the rehab with the salary she gets from TLC. The 36-year-old makes about $2,000 to $3000 per episode. This brings down her total for a 10-episode season to $20,000 to $30,000.

Amy Halterman Gets The Highest Salary From TLC

Given that her obese status requires her to get a lot of medical attention, she has been using up all her earnings to pay her healthcare bills. She has paid for the entire 14 months of her rehab stay on her own without TLC’s help. Moreover, in the latest season, Tammy has been given the longest screen time which calls for a higher payment.

On the other hand, Amy Halterman, Chris Combs, and Amanda, all feel that they can make more money if they end their current contract with the network. Amanda, who became a part of the TLC show in Season 3, makes just $700 per month for her appearances. Among all the cast members, Amy is the one who takes up the highest salary. This is because of the add-on contracts TLC has with her sons Gage (2) and Glenn (7 months).
