When it comes to TLC’s 1000-Lb Sisters, Tammy Slaton is often the more controversial of the two sisters. After 1000-Lb Sisters Season 2, some fans began to speculate that Tammy Slaton may be jealous of Amy Slaton and her surgery, as well as baby Gage. Now, with Season 3 around the corner, fans are remembering a time when Tammy Slaton claimed she was better than Amy Slaton. She also admitted that she enjoys being told she’s the better sister, and that she loves the attention. 

Some fans think Tammy Slaton is jealous of Amy Slaton

1000-Lb Sisters star Amy Slaton welcomed baby Gage into the world during Season 2 of the show. However, she wasn’t actually supposed to get pregnant at the time. In fact, Amy Slaton’s doctor told her that she should wait for at least two years following her bariatric surgery. 

“I know, it’s like, I’m scared as hell, because it was only four months ago [that I had] my surgery and now I’m pregnant,” Amy said on 1000-Lb Sisters

Tammy Slaton was frustrated with her sister for going against her doctor’s advice. 

“When I first heard that Amy was pregnant I was feeling all sorts of things, I was mad and sad and worried about her health and safety since it was so soon after her surgery,” Tammy told People.

Later, after Gage was born, some fans noticed that Tammy Slaton didn’t seem to thrilled. She even referred to Gage as “weird” and “ugly” at one point. Some fans speculated that she was jealous of Amy Slaton for her weight loss and pregnancy, and others assumed it was a matter of Tammy now being second to Gage in Amy’s life. 

“I am not mad at Amy. I am very proud of Amy. I love Amy unconditionally. And baby Gage is my everything. So I’m not now, nor have I ever been, mad at Amy. I was just not feeling good and didn’t wanna talk. And they were pushing me to. They being the producers,” Tammy said of her behavior on 1000-Lb Sisters.
