Does Tammy Have a Job?

Does Tammy Send Money to Her Family in Samoa?

Most of the tension between Tammy and Asuelu and his wife, Kalani, stems from Tammy’s belief that Asuelu should send large amounts of money back home to their parents in Samoa. As part of their culture, Tammy thinks it is their duty to financially support their mothers and fathers as they get older.

Many felt that Tammy shouldn’t pressure Asuelu to send money to his mother, Lesina, especially because he has a wife and two kids to provide for as well. Others wondered if Tammy helps to support their mother as well. Tammy confirmed that she does financially support Lesina as well during the July 25 episode.

“I have my own little family, just like Asuelu does. I work and take care of my family here, but at the same time, I need to take of mom and my parents back home,” Tammy said in her confessional. “He needs to help back home and make it fair.”

Is Tammy on Instagram?

While Tammy does not have an Instagram account, she has a Facebook page titled “Tammy Acosta’s Blog.” On her social media, she shares photos of herself, her husband and her kids.

Tammy has also addressed the hate she’s gotten from 90 Day Fiancé fans who think she is wrong for starting drama with Asuelu and Kalani  — and Tammy made it clear she’s not here for the trolls.

“Live your best life [heart eyes emoji],” Tammy captioned a photo of herself at her house, where she was rocking an athleisure look of gray fitted sweatpants, a pink T-shirt, sandals and a hat. “Their opinions [do] not matter [smiling face with sunglasses emoji] because you know yourself better [smiling face with sunglasses emoji] [red heart emoji]. I’m blessed with everything in my life [folded hands emoji] [smiling face with halo emoji] [red heart emoji]. Enjoying my day off at home [hug emoji] [red heart emoji] [heart eyes emoji].”
