1000-Lb. Sisters Tammy Slaton Willingham Claims She Is Broke
For the longest time, fans believed that the sisters received a lot of cash for their appearance on the reality show. However, that is not the case. The latest season has been following Tammy Slaton’s stay at the rehab. This gives her a longer screen time than her sister Amy. Yet, she receives only $2,000 to $3,000 per episode from TLC. This brings her total for 10 episodes to $20,000 to $30,000.
Moreover, Tammy even spoke out on social media setting the record straight regarding her financial situation. She revealed that she was broke and doesn’t get paid a lot.

On the other hand, 1000-Lb. Sisters has been on for just four seasons. So, Tammy Slaton doesn’t take home a lot.
However, she does have other sources of income like YouTube and Cameo. Tammy Slaton, just like her sister, has a YouTube channel with 157K subscribers that she created in 2018. She earns ad revenue from her videos on YouTube. Additionally, on Cameo, she charges $50 for each personalized video she makes for her fans.

However, before the Slaton Sisters signed a contract with TLC, they had a tough childhood and experienced several hardships growing up.
