The 32-year-old said she asked her friend what it meant to be pansexual and found out that it meant to love people, not just their sexes. Despite feeling startled about the revelation, Jerry declared that he still loves Tammy.
The doting boyfriend admitted that it was indeed a lot to take in, but he was okay with it and loved his girlfriend for who she is. Tammy was pleased by his reaction and confessed that acceptance of people’s sexualities matters to her.
The reality star had previously hinted at her coming out in a Tik Tok video where she teased fans about a big secret. One fan asked if she would tell Jerry she was bisexual, to which she responded with a wink.
Last month, she reportedly uploaded a video on the platform where she said she was pansexual. Fans were convinced that the secret was about her sexuality after Tammy shared that she has a new girlfriend named Kane.
Fans may recall that in the season premiere of “1000-LB Sisters” earlier this year, Tammy’s sister, Amy discovered she was pregnant four months after undergoing a weight loss surgery even though it is recommended to wait for 12 to 18 months.
A concerned Tammy opened up about the news in an interview, admitting that she is worried about her sister’s health and safety. Per reports, despite the title of the TLC show, neither of the sisters weigh 1000lbs.
However, at the start of the reality show last year, they both weighed 1000lbs together. The girls first got their break on YouTube after a video shared on Amy’s page went viral in 2014 and garnered over 2 million views.
