"Tammy's social security pays it, it takes her whole social security check, the show isn't paying," Tammy told the outlet. "That's why I hear she doesn't have a place to live because she can't afford the rent. When she comes out she'll stay with me for a little bit, soon as we find a place she'll go there."

According to Amy, TLC had paid for Tammy's previous rehab stays. At present, she has no idea when Tammy will return. She might remain there for a year or two, and it's fine with her as long as her sibling receives the help she needs.
