1,000-Lb Sisters fans shocked as Tammy Slaton reveals she brushes her teeth only 'twice a week'February 16, 2021
VIEWERS were left shocked when 1000-Lb. Sisters' Tammy Slaton admitted that she only brushes her teeth "twice a week" on the show.
TLC star Tammy, 34, took her first trip to the dentist in a decade during a recent episode and admitted that she didn't wash her teeth regularly.
"I try to [brush them] at least twice a week – I should be doing it everyday, but… " Tammy said trailing off, before the dentist pointed out that really, she "should be doing it twice everyday."
The Instagram page Teen Mom Shade Room who uploaded the clip noted said: "I love Tammy from #1000poundsisters but sheesh what??"
Likewise, viewers were equally taken aback by the revelation.
"Omfg twice a week!!!!!!! Wtf!!!!!" wrote one user, while another noted that it "should by twice a DAY miss Tammy."
"OMG when she said twice a week I LOST it," remarked a third fan.
A fourth person commented: "I love Amy & Tammy. I was definitely thrown off during this scene too because huh?
"Twice a week," she added, followed by a nauseated emoji.
During the Episode 7 of 1000-LB Sisters called “Jerry Bites Back," Tammy also acknowledged that she didn't get her chompers checked often enough when her brother Chris took her to the appointment.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people should be brushing their teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and visit the dentist "at least once a year" for their dental health.
Tammy's latest bombshell brushing admission comes after she came out as pansexual to boyfriend Jerry Sykes in a new clip of the show.
She told Jerry the truth with the support of her sister Amy and her husband Michael while they sat in a restaurant.
Sitting next to her boyfriend of two years, Tammy looked nervous to share the news about her sexuality, telling him she has some “stuff” they need to talk about.
After he gently reassures her that she "can tell me anything," Tammy says: “I am pansexual" and explains that it "means love is love. I would date anybody whether they're transgender, straight, gay."
Looking a little confused, Jerry then asks if that means she would date a transgender man and Tammy says: "Yeah. Or girl. It's about how they make me feel, not how they look."
In another VT, Tammy tells the camera that she always thought she was bisexual but after hearing the term from a friend, she realized that’s how she felt.
Switching back to the restaurant scene, Tammy’s sister Amy and her husband look tense as they wait for Jerry’s reaction.
And despite looking a bit bewildered, Jerry reassured her he wasn’t fazed by the admission and said "it is what it is, Tammy" and that he loves her.
The 1,000 LBS Sisters star was nervous about telling Jerry as the two have only just taken their relationship to the next level after meeting online.
In a previous episode filmed last year, Tammy admitted she was worried her boyfriend "won't show up."
However, Tammy shared selfies of the two together in 2020, calling him her "bae for life."
The TLC show has run for 12 episodes, and follows Tammy and her sister Amy, who together tip the scales at over 1,000 pounds combined.
The program follows their attempts to lose weight to qualify for and undergo life-changing bariatric surgery.
