‘1000-Lb Sisters’ Season 3: Who Is Amy Slaton’s Husband, Michael Halterman?
1000-Lb Sisters Season 3 is nearly here, and fans can’t wait to get more details on what’s going on with Tammy Slaton and Amy Slaton. While the sisters began their journey with the TLC reality series quite close, their personal differences have become more obvious over the years. As of now, Tammy remains unmarried — but Amy got married and even has a child. So, who is Amy Slaton’s husband, Michael Halterman? Here’s what we know.
Is Amy Slaton still married heading into ‘1000-Lb Sisters’ Season 3?
Fans want to know if Amy Slaton is still married in 2021 as the premiere for 1000-Lb Sisters Season 3 approaches. It appears she is. Amy Slaton’s husband, Michael Halterman, has appeared in the TLC series since the first season. He clearly cares deeply for Amy, but he also has tried his best to help Tammy Slaton.
According to Screen Rant, Amy and Michael both grew up in Dixon, Kentucky, and they met when attended Union High School. They tied the knot in Nashville, Tennessee, back in March 2019. They wanted to have children together as well, though doctors warned Amy against getting pregnant prior to losing weight and going through bariatric surgery. Soon after her surgery, Amy got pregnant at the beginning of 2020, and she gave birth to their son, Gage, in November 2020.
“I was mad and sad and worried about her health and safety since it was so soon after her [weight-loss] surgery,” Tammy told People regarding Amy’s pregnancy. “I’m happy she got pregnant because it was the one thing she most wanted in life.”
Does Amy Slaton’s husband have a job? What does he do now?
While fans are likely to see plenty of Michael Halterman in 1000-Lb Sisters Season 3, does Amy Slaton’s husband have a job aside from appearing on reality TV? Heavy reports his Facebook says he works as a mill operator at Shamrock Technologies. It’s unclear how often he works in this position, though, as the show often features Michael helping Amy care for Tammy.
Additionally, he likely doesn’t have to take on any additional work given Amy Slaton and Tammy Slaton’s net worths. Prior to season 3, the Slaton sisters had an estimated combined net worth of around $300,000. This certainly goes a long way in the small town of Dixon, Kentucky. And with so much anticipation for the third season of the show, there’s a good chance the Slaton sisters will achieve more fame, and more money, once it premieres.
It’s unclear how much the Slaton sisters get paid for each episode of the TLC series, though. TLC pays some of their stars around $1,500 to film one episode of a reality show. But they pay others around $7,000 depending on the show’s success.
Are Tammy Slaton and Jerry Sykes still together?
Fans can’t wait to see more of Amy Slaton’s husband in 1000-Lb Sisters Season 3. But what about Tammy Slaton? Are Tammy Slaton and Jerry Sykes still together?
It seems the two split prior to season 3. Jerry was already married when he started dating Tammy. His wife, Kia Russell-Sykes, discovered his cheating ways when the show initially aired. Kia spoke out and said she, along with the couple’s seven children, is incredibly upset with Jerry as a result of his choices.
It seems fans will see the new man Tammy has in her life in season 3. Phillip, aka thebbwking on TikTok, is the new apple of Tammy’s eye. He appeared on Dr. Phil in the past for his interest in larger women, too, so we’ll see how that plays out for Tammy moving forward.
1000-Lb Sisters Season 3 airs Nov. 15, 2021, on TLC.
