But Tammy shrugged off the backlash as she starred in a new TikTok video while at the rehab center on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old stared straight into the camera as various Spongebob Squarepants characters passed over her head.

As the cartoon’s music played, the reel stopped on various roles – including Mrs. Puff and Squidward.

Tammy was clearly amused by the game, frowning and laughing at Squidward.

The TLC star has shared numerous TikToks during his time in rehab, raising concern among his fans.

One wrote under a clip of her dancing, “Daughter didn’t you almost die – are you okay?”

A third fan commented, “Bruh you almost died, why are you on TikTok?”

Tammy has already lost 115 pounds in 30 days at the facility after her lungs collapsed and she was put into a medically induced coma.

Tammy’s brother, Chris Combs, gave an update on his health at the Sisters 1,000lb season finale last week.

He told the camera: “So she lost 100 – I think she told me 115 pounds in total in 30 days.

“I’m thrilled that she’s ready to get on that train and start rolling down the tracks.”

That means Tammy could weigh around 534 pounds now. She plans to stay in rehab for eight months.

Dr. Smith has promised Tammy that if she is able to dive under 500 pounds during her stay, he will arrange for her to come straight to his house for weight loss surgery when she leaves the facility.


Tammy was rushed to hospital a day after arriving in rehab because she couldn’t breathe.

“They just tell us that his lungs gave out, and like his body was shutting down,” their sister Amanda said during the finale.

Tammy was placed on a ventilator and then placed in an induced coma in hospital.

When she woke up, she underwent a tracheotomy – which involved having a breathing tube inserted into her throat.

After three weeks in the hospital, she was able to return to rehab.

“I’m happy, I’m relieved, I’m still sad. I’m just grateful,” Amanda said. “I’m just like, handsome up there, you know. Thank you. We prayed for a miracle and God gave us one.”

“She’s fine. She’s still alive. She has her life,” added their other sister, Amy.


Tammy caused concern on the TLC show with her partying, drinking and smoking.

The TV personality was struggling to lose weight and hit her goal of 550 pounds from 639 pounds.

In one episode, Tammy was picked up by her friends to hang out.

During her confessional, she said, “We just drank, vaped. As a teenager, I didn’t party. I was super shy about my weight and didn’t really have a lot of friends.”

She added: “But now I’m at the point where I don’t care. I’m going to be me. We don’t eat healthy. Because for me, if I eat something like pizza or pizza rolls, the bread soaks up the alcohol and the fat helps keep the hangover down.”

She also admitted to drinking eight bottles of alcohol a week to cope with her mental health issues.
