What Will ‘1000-Lb. Sisters’ Season 5 Likely Consist For Tammy?
Season 4 of the long-running series saw Tammy not only meet her new love interest but marry him after initially sparking the connection at the Ohio-based weight loss facility.
Though Tammy was originally set to leave the rehab facility, her release was delayed due to a serious trachea infection and her stay was extended. It was during that time she met Caleb, who had been at the facility for nearly a year but had just started to come out of his room due to health issues.
Caleb reportedly planned to move to Kentucky with Tammy and season 5 will likely document their new life as newlyweds.
However, fans have picked up on clues pointing to a potential split between Tammy and Caleb. In early April 2023, Tammy seemingly changed her name on her TikTok account to her maiden name after previously listing it as Willingham. For his part, a post allegedly made on Caleb’s private Facebook page later that month pointed at trouble.
“If you were here only for my wife, then please delete me now,” Caleb’s post allegedly read. “We are married by paper only right now. Her decision not mine. It was more than that. I’m hurt, mad, confused and alone even with others around.”

Though their marriage is coming to an end, Amy and her estranged husband were spotted outside their divorce hearing with a television crew on May 3, 2023, according to The Sun. After the hearing, Amy, brother Chris Combs and sister Amanda Halterman filmed a scene together. Michael, meanwhile, reportedly avoided the cameras.
