They’re the breakout stars of TLC’s My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, which concludes its first season Sunday.
Now West Virginia’s Stanley sisters — Nettie, Laura, Kayla and wild, wild gypsy girl Mellie — have scored an upcoming special of their own.
In My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding: The Stanley Sisters, premiering July 1 at 9/8CT, we find the Stanley women caught up in multiple family dramas.
Mellie has found an even more brazen way to thumb her nose at gypsy conventions by dancing in a local strip joint, so Nettie takes matters into her own hands and shows up to make a spectacle of her wayward little sister. But an even greater crisis brings the family back together — Nettie’s 14-year-old daughter runs off with her 17-year-old boyfriend, so the Stanley women launch a take-no-prisoners plan to get the child back.
Immediately following The Stanley Sisters at 10/9CT, TLC answers American Gypsy Wedding fans’ prayers by bringing back some of its most outspoken cast members in a reunion special called The Aftermath.
The men and women will fill viewers in on how their lives have changed since they shot their episodes and give further insight into the culture, customs and conflicts in their tight-knit communities.
