Did Laura Johnston really quit Gypsy Sisters?
          

Laura Gypsy Sisters

The series premiere of TLC’s new My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding spin-off series Gypsy Sisters was only three days ago and it seems we already have casting news for Season 2!

TLC’s official MBFAGW/Gypsy Sisters Facebook page posted a promotional photo of Laura (Click here to see all the official Gypsy Sisters promo photos!) along with the words “Meet Laura: Tanning, shopping and looking hot for her husband. Enough said.” But, it seems that it wasn’t enough said because there were a string of comments .

Laura’s cast mate Nettie made a comment that read, “Where’s Laura she’s been MIA she don’t wanna be around us!?!?!?!” Kayla’s sister, and Laura’s sister-in-law, Annie Johnston responded by writing, “Nettie u no the deal cuz I’m gonna be the new person filming with y’all for good I can’t wait.” So it sounds like we may be seeing a lot more of Annie!

Gypsy Sisters Laura husband Gus

After that, a post was made by someone claiming to be Laura’s husband Gus Johnston (seen with Laura in the photo above) under the Facebook ID for a Wayne Mills with a bombshell announcement! (I assume Gus doesn’t have a Facebook page.)

Laura leaving Gypsy Sisters Facebook

Most of the rest of the comments after that seemed to ask the same question that came to my mind, “Who is hating on Laura?” Gus did not return to answer that question.

Annie, however, did return to the Gypsy Sisters Fan Group Facebook page where there was a discussion about whether or not Laura was really leaving the show, to which she replied:

Laura Johnston's sister-in-law Annie says she has quit Gypsy Sisters

That looks like a real deal pretty much almost confirmation right there! UPDATE: We had a source tell us that Laura IS NOT leaving the show, and that they were just creating the Facebook drama to create a smokescreen of sorts.

Someone in the comment section below, who appears to be claiming to be close to Gus, claims that both Gus AND Laura made the decision to quit the show, not Gus alone. We also want to reiterate that these Facebook screencaps are from the Official TLC Facebook fanpage, and a public Facebook fan group for the show. The Facebook group has since been made private, but appears to be started as a means for fans of the show to interact with the cast members. It’s description reads “A place for fans and stars of Gypsy Sisters on TLC to chat!”

If Laura is indeed leaving the show I’m gonna be bummed — she was such a nice contrast with Mellie! Laura’s scenes were like the calm before the storm — i.e. Hurricane Mellie. Plus, I’m a dude, and Laura is damn fine y’all! She kind of reminded me of of Kristin Davis from Sex and the City, only living in a camper in West Virginia instead of New York City, and using bleach for toothpaste instead of, well, toothpaste:

Thanks to @WeLoveMellie and @StanleySisFans on Twitter for the heads up!

In the initial post I erroneously referred to Annie as Laura’s step-sister when she is Laura’s sister-in-law. I have since made the correction. Thanks to the commenters below for pointing it out.

There is a lot of drama in the comments section that appears to be between family members who are upset that we even published this post at all. We didn’t paint anyone in a bad light, simply reported things that were reported on public Facebook pages that revealed Laura is leaving the show, which is news because she is a reality show star. Many of the angry comments below from purported family members and friends are also saying that Laura is leaving the show. A major point they seem to want to clear up is that it was both Laura and Gus’ intent, not Gus’ alone, for her to quit.

      For some reason I get a very bad vibe from her husband Gus…

      • Mickey

        Yeah, like he it’s more than controlling…

        • jet

          and to all the negativity we love it we get to see you all playing a guessing game so have fun with this game .keep it coming

      • jet

        And you don’t know what the hell your talking about do u really think you know someone from watching a reality show

        • Geniya

          everyone has an aura. A distinctive but intangible quality that seems to surround a person is the defintion of aura. like all people he might have something good about him but overall he just might give people a bad vibe just by looking at him.

        • http://www.facebook.com/charleybeth.stanley Charley-Beth Stanley

          exactly thats how some think aunt jet

          • deaner23

            you don’t even know these people, they hate you for stalking their whole lives. Patty thinks you’re a cookoo bird because you’re pretending you’re a Gypsy!! wish i could become “one” with those i watch on T.V. Smoke some more METH.

      • Geniya

        i agree and the husband from the dad that that didnt let his daughter date . He seems just awful. they both look like the would play some stupid bad guy in a movie.

        • Karen Murray

          How many kids do you have? I wish my husband was more like him! It’d make my job as a mother of all girls a lot easier!

          • Geniya

            That’s sad you would want someone to make your daughters cry, just because it would make your job easier as a mother. there is nothing worse then a crying child, especially your own flesh and blood. Someone needs to close their legs and stop having daughters or kids if they cannot handle it.

            • deaner23

              i dont like watching my son cry either, but that’s what being a good parent is all about. He was just protecting his daughters reputation because he was once a 14 year old boy himself and knows his daughter is worth more than that. Kids are too into sex now a days way too young. Why not protect her and keep her a kid as long as possible?

              • Geniya

                there is something called positive reinforcement. a good parent can teach lessons without making their child cry. that is really sad that your are another mother who thinks its okay when their kids cry even if a lesson is being taught

                • deaner23

                  Absolutely, I agree with positive reinforcement and will do everything in my power to avoid that, but I will NOT allow my boy date at 1

                  • Geniya

                    yes everyone can have their own opinions on dating. and you have the right to do what you believe is best for your son. i have two year old girl so dating isn’t one my concerns yet

              • Nikki

                Uh wasn’t the argument about WHO she was going to date? From what I got it was more she’ll marry a gypsy man and no one else. He seemed FINE with her his daughter in a short skirt sitting on that guy’s lap when they had the BBQ or whatever when the guys hand was all up on her leg and she was still 14 years old. So I think it was more WHO she’ll marry not him protecting her because of her age. I understand the culture he’s in and their beliefs as far as wanting their daughters etc to marry into the gypsy culture but come on you made BOTH daughters cry you are teaching them that if they don’t marry a gypsy it’s “bad” “shameful” it’s about who she loves and will take care of her. I’m not saying he’s a bad parent or anything, I have no right to judge anyone I just think it wasn’t so much her age.

        • jet

          Thats next folks we are loving the gossip u are playing well.now go finish it

          • Geniya

            whats wrong with you?

        • http://www.facebook.com/charleybeth.stanley Charley-Beth Stanley

          are men in our community believing keeping the culture pure im not much ok with how richard talked to danielle bout it all but puppy love crush’s are just that puppy love .. i lvoe kayla she is a wonderful mother and wife and well richard has a hard time with letting any of his kids mature i think as any normal parent especially a father to a lil girl that is just saying

          • deaner23

            OH nooooo…it’s Charley-Meth NOT Stanley! You’re a crazy psycho…Why don’t you post your picture on here so everyone can see your scabbed up face. You are not related to any Gypsy’s, and stop asking Shyanne for her dress from the show. you’re so weird.

            • Ally M.

              I always see her commenting on facebook and youtube videos…she is seriously crazy. And she looks mixed and I’m sorry correct me if i’m wrong but gypsy’s already go crazy if you marry a gorger let alone a black one. so charly “meth” can’t be gypsy or at least not a stanley. she’s crazy

        • Ally

          I’m not sure what it is just something dores not sit right with me from him. I dunno if it’s the way he is or what editors are wanting us to believe. Will definitely continue to watch the show though!

      • jet

        We need you to get any vibe you want .keep them coming.

        • gypsy by marraige

          Jet they dont know what they r talkin about they cant get Annie’s. Last name right in first story then can’t. Get the fam relationship. Right wit laura n annie

          • Natalia Salinas

            Learn how to write. And please allow your kids (if you have any) to finish school. That is the one thing that bugs me a out the Romany culture.

        • deaner23

          Jet, you’re awesome! i just saw the episode you were in….You’re Kayla, Annie and Gus’ mom. Hope this show stays on for a very long time!!

    • Annie

      This is Annie I didn’t steal nothing from laura she is my sister in law her husband does not want her filming anymore so that’s between them

      • starcasmnet

        No one accused you of stealing anything. : )

      • starcasmnet

        Plus, we apologize for getting your relationship wrong, if this is indeed Annie. It was a silly error, and has been corrected.

    • Annie

      A message from my brother Gus he just called and said to let everyone no that it was just as much Laura’s decision to quit the show they both agreed to it for everyone to quit making false statements

      • Nettie

        I’m Nettie, who believes me lol.

        • lottie mae

          me now get the grey out of your hair daughter

      • dezz

        laura has more class then all of them and a way better body guss was damm lucky to get her

    • jet

      Let me say Laura quit the show because her and her husband.nd made that decision not just one of them.and further more whos business is it so to you critics trying to make a dollar by telling lies and going into private Facebook there should be a law to stop these critics people and there bullshit

      • jet

        And let me say Annie wouldn’t have to take or steal anything from anyone she is a gypsy not a fake and she’s already on the show and further more kayla and Annie are sisters and Laura is their sis unlawful not sister

        • Sheena

          Hey

        • starcasmnet

          Nowhere did we ever claim that Annie took or stole anything. We merely reported was said on the TLC page, and the then public Facebook group.

      • starcasmnet

        Hi, We updated the post to reflect your comments. We would like to point out that all of this took place on a public Facebook fanpage for the show, NOT a private Facebook account. It’s now been made private, and we respect that, but at the time of this post these were public conversations by and about public figures.

        • jet

          How the hell would you know what’s true.your doing a bad job .everything you wrote was lies .and that’s against the law its called discrimination

        • deaner23

          that’s tacky though how you get your “facts”. Kind of sneaky, barnyard reporting. Judge Judy doesn’t like hearsay, so why would you make up a story surrounding it? geesh, you’re making the National Enquirer look like The Wall Street Journal. Pffftt

          • starcasmnet

            It was a public Facebook page. It’s news when a reality star leaves a show, and from most of the comments attacking us, they also seem to be confirming that she’s leaving the show, which is all the article is about.

    • Guest

      @disqus_Nx2PxpwGUi:disqus is this Ally chick related to, or acquainted with your family in any way? Just wondered since she’s got so much to say about the members of the show on this post as well as the other one regarding Mellie. Guess she’s just a know it all fan. Wonder if she’s as judgmental and mouthy in person to her own friends and family, or if she only perpetuates drama and talks bad about people she doesn’t know from behind a computer? I really like the show and would hate to see any other members leave or stop being real due to the “haters”. Viewers need to remember that these are REAL PEOPLE and NOT actors.

      “Judge not lest you be judged”…..

      • jet

        Yes Annie is Gus’s sister so quit trying to judge and watch the acting these girls did.they were good enought to get you all going.stay tuned more juicy gossip.the star’s of the show need your crab it makes them look good no matter what you say.now go have some more fun!and keep guessing

        • Karen Murray

          @disqus_Xf1AwWZSEc:disqus I think you misunderstood my comment I posted as “guest”. I was asking Annie if Ally knew yall or if she was just a fan running her mouth. Annie had posted a couple comments and has now deleted them. My point was to tell Ally to stop judging and STHU.

    • sandogger

      Awww….Laura’s my favorite.

    • jet

      This is a reality show people.

    • jet

      Don’t hide who you are we already know.

    • Gypsy Fan

      Id rather see Laura then Annie.

      • jet

        I know who this is and you better stay out of our business.go duck your self .Gus ain’t giving a shot what you write.get a life

        • Gypsy Fan

          Haha you’re nuts.

          • jet

            Do ya think

        • Natalia Salinas

          Like I said to the other one. Before you spend your time trying to “create drama for your show”, please learn how to write. That’s all! :) And don’t worry, ill be tuning in to watch this train wreck. Makes my life look a lot better, lol.

          • Bebe

            Completely agreed & well said Ylanaty. I just watch this because the stupidity is so entertaining.

        • Bebe

          Shut up Guss.

    • Danielle

      Laura will be missed if she leaves! I love her and Kayla together.

    • TeTe

      I am going to miss Laura on the show but Annie is super sweet also.. Laura and her husband know what is best for their family.

    • Family friend

      Please, please learn what the words you choose mean. Jet for a woman your age shouldn’t you be better at choosing your words and spelling them? Doesn’t your computer at least spell check for you and your daughter? Also I send my condolences.

    • http://www.facebook.com/charleybeth.stanley Charley-Beth Stanley

      you all have to understand this is between the family its their personal choice if laura and gus feel its time to end being on the show then thats their human right not ours! yea we all love laura as i call her laurie lol but still she’s a wonderful mom and wife to gus and the girls . its in my understanding she wants to focus on her kids and family right now nothing more nothing less we are norm very private ppl in this type of community .. so please just all leave her with respect that its her and her family choice not ours …

      FAMILY IS FAMILY YOU’LL NEVER CHANGE THAT! as the great Mrs Firecraker Kayla would say so let my god family be !

      • starcasmnet

        Thanks for your eloquent comment! We definitely didn’t intent to misrepresent anything, and didn’t paint Laura or Annie in a bad light. Since she is on reality TV to begin with, it is relevant public information that she is leaving.

        • deaner23

          this woman doesn’t know this family at all and stalks their whole life on facebook and every other social network. She’s bonkers and has been threatening Shyanne for her dress from the show. She makes threatening phone calls to their fans and is a complete whacko.

      F**k you

    • gypsy by marraige

Wanany more of the drama that came wit the shows an in previous dtstement u coukdnt even get annie’s freakin ladt name right u makin them out to be mean. Crazy. An all dorts of things invaiding. There privacy in there comments in someone’s. Post takin screen shots n posting get the story right b4 yrying to post about them

      • starcasmnet

        They don’t come off as mean, read the post for what it is. The writer did accidentally call them step sisters instead of sister-in-laws, and that has since been corrected.

      • Jenny

        You can’t even spell.

          I don’t believe you. I dare you to show them.

        • deaner23

          STALKER.

    • gypsy by marraige

      First off is a family choice if laura keeps doing the show an laura is Annie’s. Sister in law not step sister. An hell if ur 1st post u couldn’t. Even get Annie’s. Last name right an alsu u went as far as tsking screen shot of comments. That were written. Under a post if u want the truth y dont u contact kayla. Annie.laura of s fmaily member involved to get the freakin truth the stuff u posting is incorrect. Get it right b4 u ssy something u now nothing about

      • starcasmnet

        Any family member can contact us if they would like to clear the air about something: info@starcasm.net. We don’t have their contact information. Honestly, Laura’s last name and her relationship to Annie was incorrect in the original posting, which were silly mistakes for which we apologize. It does happen to be news when a reality star leaves a show, and the information is public when it is posted on a public forum. The writer simply posted what was said, and even stated that he would miss Laura. That being said, Annie is great on the show too, and nothing about this post implies a drama between them. The whole cast is entertaining and fun to watch. It’s honestly a very good reality show.

    • gypsy by marraige

      O n jet u know who this iIts ur niece think about it n u will know not trying to hide who i am soon yo b mommy if that helps

    • Family friend

      Is that all you’ve got?

    • Nikki P.

      THIS IS SO SUPER CRAZY, I KNOW ANNIE-I used to live in the same apt complex as her and her (then?) husband, Trey in Martinsburg. Annie even came to my baby shower-I have pictures! It’s been a long time. (My daughter is now 7). I even remember Kayla and Gus too. HI ANNIE!! :) btw, this is Nikki-I knew you when I was dating that d-bag Chris. That nutty dude Jasper lived in the apt under us and used to take his swords outside and like, be a ninja…and Roxanne lived a few doors down from you. Her and I were preg at the same time. ANyways….don’t know if you remember or not, but WOW. Crazy to be seeing you on t.v now!

      • Fan

        Don’t know where you have been aka educated family friend they all marry and procreate with first cousins. It is definitely different. One of the “Gypsy Sisters” married three first cousins and had children with each one. Plus one child she had with some other guy. #gross

    • http://www.facebook.com/rachel.holmes.526 Rachel Holmes

      i love watching the gypsies no matter who it is … i love them all and wish them all the best of luck in life and love and im very saddened by hearing that laura is leaving the show . yall brighten up my weekend and keep the shows coming and annie.. give mellie and the baby a big hug and kiss from me please :) much love yall

    • Jerry

      I like Laura the best. I thought she was related to a Romany who married a gorger in season 1 where she teaches her about Romany ways. If she is leaving that’s a shame. I like Kayla too, but these other Romaneys are crazy. I much prefer ” my big fat gypsy wedding ” than the gypsy sisters because it shows a spectrum of Romany life rather than a few crazy bitches always fighting with each other!

    • jess

      Where do they buy those rhinestone belts?

    • Linda

      This show and all the people in the show are the most rediculous and cunning that I have ever seen. I tried to watch it once and the foul mouths, antics, and the horrible scripted lines are just horrible. This is the worse show I have ever encountered. The mouths on these girls, and I say girls because they are not women, acting the way they act. The mother of this show is the worse kind of person or mother with no ethics, how can she expect her daughters to be good girls. It’s just the worse possible show and I can’t see how a network could air such garbage.

    • Bebe

      Annie has a heart of gold. She actually seems like the one decent person on the show. They need to have pretty girls on the show. JoAnn is pretty but the fat lady has to go too. Mellie is so bipolar. I cringe when I see how stupid she acts. Her family talks shit right in front of her and it’s clear no one likes her around. i’d be an alcoholic stripper too if my family treated me like that. She has serious emotional issues. Those mother’s sexualize their children too. They are disgusting. The men are so gross. When I watch these gypsy shows like the wedding one’s too, I’m just so grateful I live a normal life and had good parents. I’m grateful I got a shot at a good college education and am independent as well as wasn’t encouraged to dress provocatively just to get a husband by 15. Yuck! This show makes me appreciate my life because I’m just so glad I wasn’t born into that culture.

    • Jean

      I would rather see Annie than sheena. She needs to GO,

    • Addison

      1 guess as to how many of the cast ever completed high school. Or even has a GED.

    • Ice Queen

      I don’t know why people are harassing the gypsy sisters and their families. This is television entertainment. Just treat it as such. These people are nice enough to let us (gorgers) to watch and LEARN about their culture and their lives. It doesn’t matter if they are being compensated. If you don’t like them, don’t watch them!
      I am very intrigued. I enjoy the show. I have learned so many things from them. Their cooking, their cleaning, the way they take care of each other. Can you imagine the kind of world this would be if we all treated our family, and took care of our families and were there for them no matter what. Always had room for family and none of them were homeless. Before any of the people decide to find fault with the families on this show, take a good look and notice that none of these people leave their family out in the cold and even if there is no room, or running out of room, they MAKE room!
      I have always believed in that. When my family comes to me in need or want, if I have it, I give it!
      So take this into consideration. I love these gypsy families! Yes, I have had gypsies come to my house for roofing and yard cleaning and painting. They give 110% of themselves and do really good work. They do it thoroughly and quickly. I have absolutely no problems with gypsies! Please keep this series going!
