Thieves took advantage of 1,000-Lb Sisters star Tammy Slaton being away in weight loss rehab to break into her Dixon, Kentucky, house to steal her furniture. The burglars kicked down the back door to the house and also made off with Tammy’s washer and dryer, Webster County Deputy Starkey told The Sun in May 2022. Now, the aftermath will be seen on the February 7, 2023, episode of the TLC series.
Tammy’s sisters Amanda Slaton and Misty Slaton arrive to “to pick up some things” that Tammy wanted and discover the home had been completely ransacked.
“Girl, all of her stuff is gone!” Amanda announces over the phone in a sneak peek video clip. She continued describing the scene, saying, “The fridge was over here. The table was here. The kitchen sink’s gone. The bathroom sink. The water heater’s missing. Her dresser that was in here was gone with the rest of the clothes and s—t that was in it.”
Tammy, 36, had lived at the duplex with her sister, Amy Halterman (née Slaton), 35, who had since moved out along with her husband, Michael Halterman, and son Gage, 2, as they bought a new house for their growing family. The couple was expecting their second child at the time, and they welcomed son Glenn on July 8, 2022.
The TLC star checked herself into rehab for weight issues following a frightening hospitalization in November 2021 due to carbon dioxide poisoning. It “led to pneumonia, and I was septic,” she said in a TikTok video at the time. “After I got off life support, they put a trach in, so, yeah. I’m trying to get used to that.” Tammy had initially been placed on a ventilator and in a medically induced coma in addition to having a tracheotomy
“I’m doing better day by day,” Tammy continued, adding, “I’m supposed to be getting out of the hospital in a couple days. I’m going to another nursing rehab to get my strength back and lose more weight.” Her health crisis appeared on the season 3 finale of 1000-Lb Sisters on January 31, 2022. Her brother, Chris Combs, revealed at the time, “She’s lost 100 [pounds] — I think she told me 115 pounds in total — in 30 days,” due to her hospitalization.
Since then, Tammy had been living in an Ohio-based residential treatment facility while she continued on her journey to lose weight. She had previously posted selfies and brief videos throughout the winter that showed she still had her breathing tube attached to her neck from the tracheotomy, but otherwise seemed to be feeling better.
Tammy was unable to give any updates about her weight loss at the time due to it being filmed and saved for the new season of 1000-Lb Sisters, which debuted on January 17, 2023. In a TikTok video she shared on February 28, 2022, Tammy told fans, “I’d love to give you a weight loss update, but you’re going to have to wait until season 4 comes out. Sorry!” adding, “Just know that I’m staying on track and things are looking up.”
Once season 4 debuted, Tammy explained what happened to her. “Two months ago, I decided to go back to rehab. I weighed the most I have ever weighed,” the reality TV personality shared after it was revealed she hit 717 pounds. “I was here maybe, less than 30 minutes and my oxygen level dropped.” She ended up hospitalized and put in a medically induced coma.
“I don’t remember any of it, nothing. I completely blacked out,” the Kentucky native explained, adding, “I woke up a week later in the hospital, on life support. I don’t remember any of it.”
