My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding fans may have noticed some changes to Mellie Stanley during last night’s series premiere of MBFAGW spin-off Gypsy Sisters. No, Mellie is still drinking, stripping, cursing, fighting, and otherwise not holding anything back — nothing different there. The changes I’m talking about were only skin deep in the form of lots of new tattoos!

During the premiere Mellie showed off a new tattoo she got for sort-of fiance Robbie, which was his name in bold red script lettering right above, er, home plate so to speak:

As you can probably see in the picture above, the “Robbie” script tattoo is sandwiched between two other script tats that read “Live Fast” and “Die Fast,” which are obviously two mantras Mellie subscribes to. Here’s another blurry shot of her pre-Robbie abdomen:

In addition to the belly tats, Mellie also got a bit of ink on the flip side in the form of a Hollywood star tramp stamp:

Later Mellie added “Or Die.”

Mellie also demonstrated her tolerance for pain by getting a large ribcage tattoo that reads “Gypsy” underscored with a flourish and a jewel:

One thing many viewers don’t realize is that Mellie is a devout Christian, which is evidenced by her ankle band tattoo that includes a cross and the words, “Have Faith:”

I don’t want to sound like a conspiracy theorist or anything, but I couldn’t find any other photos in which you could see Mellie’s “Robbie” tattoo. That might make sense with more modest gals, but there are plenty of relatively recent photos of Mellie in which her “Robbie zone” is exposed, and there is nothing there. Could it be that she got a temporary tattoo to trick Robbie into getting that Mellie (almost Millie) tatto on his arm? That would be pretty sinister, even for Mellie!

UPDATE – I just found this next photo on the @welovemellie Twitter account that sure makes the Robbie tattoo look like the real deal!

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, here is what Mellie Stanley looked like before the tattoos:

    i love the show, but she is NOT a cute girl. Inside or out!

  • Geniya

    TLC is profiting off this girl’s misery. I almost feel sorry for her.

  • Nikki

    I think the poor girl has problems she’s still dealing with, abusive ex husband, mom abandoned her.

  • jojo

    being on a show like this must be like winning the lottery for those with little hopes of ever getting anywhere in life. not that i blame her. ths is not actually how most ‘romani’ people are – these are just trash, with a felon-mom whom she hadn’t seen since she was 13 to her wacko sister-mom who has NINE kids yet finds the time AND $$ to get nails,hair, tans (she took her 3 y/o for a spray tan) – i think the whole lot of them s hould be rounded up and sent to a penal institution where they learn manners, respect, a good work ethic and most importantly – living like decent citizens. this gal will be another snookie sans the middle-class parents to ensure she doesn’t waste all her $$. sad situation.. another amy winehouse minus the talent.

    Those tattos are going to look great when that pregnany belly stretches them out!

  • Ally

    Umm has anyone else noticed the “mommy pouch” on her tummy? She is skinny but it’s still there, I wonder if she had ever been pregnant before? It’s in all her pictures!

    • She has weird hips. That’s what I noticed..

    • savannah

      Apparently she’s pregnant now. Still drinking, as she says “Drinking a glass of wine a day is fine for babies”…This girl has got problems. Shouldn’t be bringing a little one into all that chaos…

      • Ally

        I know she is pregnant now but from the looks of her tummy something is telling me this is not the first time. I can’t believe she is drinking while pregnant, well with her I can’t but all I can do is shake my head!

    • Jaylynn

      She was pregnant before, but her ex ( I think his name was Danny ) Beat her which led her to have a miscarriage. Well, That’s what I had read a couple of day’s ago.

  • Ally

    Also is Robbie the father?

  • Guest

    Everybody is so CRITICAL!!!

  • lee lee

    This article is about her tattoo’s not her character!

  • Feisty

    Mellie has no business bringing a child into this world. She can’t take care of herself while pregnant she might as well tie them tubes!


    • ally

      the holy bible is other Koran middle Eastern religions need to stay in the middle east


      Very Old Testament … If you actually read the book of Lev. No one could live their life under such strict cleanliness guidelines. Totally different when a Matteress was a sack stuffed with straw. However I agree about not marking your body w/ tats. In the new. Testament passages regarding desecration of the flesh.

  • Milly

    That’s my cousin you lot are runnin of your mouth about so I suggest if your gonna say something say it to her face

    • Booey

      Every one of the gypsy men and some women have been to jail or prison. Gypsies, in general, are not good people

  • Not only does she make no effort to stand/pose attractively, she purposely adopts the most awful stance she can.
