TLC Takes Viewers Into the Wild World of "Gypsy Sisters"
The "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding" spin-off premieres Sunday, February 10 at 9:00/8:00c.

[via press release from TLC]


All-new series premieres February 10 at 9/8c

TLC returns to the thriving Gypsy community in West Virginia to experience life in the Stanley family, a loud and proud clan that was first introduced in the series MY BIG FAT AMERICAN GYPSY WEDDING. Now, the new series GYPSY SISTERS takes a closer look at the four women who lead this outrageous family with their own set of rules, and where everything is taken to the extreme, including their fights and their love for each other.

The all-new eight-episode series GYPSY SISTERS starts with a special 2-hour premiere on Sunday, February 10 at 9/8c.

Martinsburg, West Virginia is a hotbed of Gypsy culture and intrigue. With their husbands constantly on the road for work, the women are expected to stay home, cook, clean, and raise the children. When they're not busy doing household chores and working to look their best, they keep themselves entertained by involving themselves in each others lives - whether they're welcomed or not.

Nettie Stanley is the outspoken matriarch of the Stanley clan, and she wields gossip like a weapon against her enemies. When she's not stirring up drama and inserting herself into the lives of her nine children, she's contending with her rambunctious younger sister Mellie, the self-proclaimed black sheep of the family. Mellie's job as a stripper, as well as her proclivity for drinking, swearing, and getting into fist fights has made her the talk of the town, and Nettie feels that Mellie has brought shame on the family name.

Meanwhile, Nettie's cousin Kayla strives to be the perfect gypsy wife and mother, but the demanding roles often prove easier said than done. Kayla and her traditional Gypsy husband Richard continually butt heads when it comes to raising theirteenage daughter, Danielle. Kayla wants to let Danielle date whomever she pleases, but Richard is insistent on Danielle marrying a proper Gypsy boy. Kayla's life is further complicated when her brother Gus and sister-in-law Laura move in with them. Kayla worries that eleven people living under one roof is a recipe for disaster!

GYPSY SISTERS delivers an in-depth look at the Stanley's twisted family tree. When Mellie's ex-boyfriend, Robbie - the love of her life - returns to town, he unwittingly turns her wild and carefree world upside down and forces Mellie to reevaluate the direction her life is headed. And, just as Mellie opens herself up to the possibility of love and marriage, her ex-con mother, Lottie Mae, gets released from prison, unleashing a hornet's nest of fighting and fury for everyone in the Stanley family.

Open the door into the lives of this big Gypsy family Sundays at 9/8c, only on TLC.
