Tammy, 36, has been front and center for the show in recent seasons and a source close to the Slatons shared that she makes a mere $2-3K per episode. The source added that Tammy had to spend all of her earnings from the contract just to pay for her 14 months in weight rehab with no other support from producers.
Tammy’s half-sister Amanda, who joined the show during season three, only earns about $700 a month for her appearances on 1000-Lb. Sisters. Per The Mirror, the insider said that Tammy’s sister Amy makes the most on the show because her two sons Gabe, 7, and seven-month-old Glenn also have contracts.
