TAMMY Slaton, star of 1000-lb Sisters, comes out as pansexual to boyfriend Jerry in a new clip of the show.
The 34-year-old made the admission 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, Jerry Sykes, 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.”
Appearing nonplussed, Jerry replied: “What is it?”
The reality star explains to him: “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.
She responds: “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, telling her: “It is what it is, Tammy. I still love you though.”
Tammy looked close to relieved tears as listened to her boyfriend.
It’s no wonder the 34-year-old 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.
