TLC has announced Gypsy Sisters, a new My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding spinoff that will follow four women in the Stanley family as they set their own rules and live an extreme lifestyle in West Virgina's Gypsy community, will premiere with a two-hour episode on Sunday, February 10 at 9PM ET/PT.
Viewers were introduced to the Stanley family during My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding. Gypsy Sisters, an all-new eight-episode series, will dive a little deeper into the personal lives of the ladies who lead the clan.
Gypsy Sisters will feature four women from Martinsburg, WV, who are expected to stay home, clean, cook, always look nice, and raise the children of their husbands who are constantly on the road working. When the girls have free time, they entertain each other with gossip.
Nettie Stanley is the "outspoken matriarch" of the family who stirs up drama and inserts herself into the lives of her nine children, according to the network. Nettie's younger sister Mellie is "the self-proclaimed black sheep of the family," as she's a stripper and enjoys drinking and getting into physical altercations.
In the upcoming season, Mellie's ex-boyfriend will return to town and she'll have to make some life-altering decisions, while her ex-con mother Lottie Mae will get released from prison. Nettie apparently believes Mellie brings shame upon the Stanley name.
Nettie's cousin Kayla tries to be the perfect wife and mother but often disagrees with her husband Richard's parenting methods when it comes to their teenage daughter Danielle. Kayla allows Danielle to freely date, but Richard is set on Danielle marrying a proper Gypsy boy. Once Kayla's brother Gus and sister-in-law Laura move in with them -- making it 11 people in one household -- things get more complicated.
