It was an eight-hour drive and Tammy filmed herself awaiting his arrival, admitting: “I wish he’d hurry up and get here.”
Later, she is asked by show bosses if she worries he won’t show up and Tammy admits: “A little bit yeah.
“But Jerry is a straight-forward person, if he says he’s going to do something, he does it.”
“I am freaking out a little, I dont know what he’s going to think of me. I don’t know, I mean, I know what he thinks of me but I don’t know what he thinks of Kentucky, it’s very different” she shares.

Tammy shared selfies of the two together in 2020, calling him her “bae for life.”
“I love that you found your 1st love,” shared one fan, to which Tammy replied: “Today is not my first love I’ve been with women and man before I was with Jerry.”
However, fans of the show know that Jerry is allegedly a married man, whose wife was terminally ill.
In response, Tammy tweeted: “Are you aware that I’m no he’s married y’all ain’t telling me nothing I don’t know how about y’all still outta my business (sic).”
