PHOTOS Gypsy Sisters’ Nettie Stanley’s husband Huey Stanley

Gypsy Sisters Nettie Stanley's husband Huey Stanley

On My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding and Gypsy Sisters we’ve all gotten to know the Stanley family pretty well, especially sisters Nettie and Mellie. We often see Nettie struggling with being the mother of 9 (Yes, 9!) kids, and sometimes her kids’ drama (Dallas and “Nuckie” in particular) even becomes a major story line on the show. But, strangely, one member of the Stanley family we haven’t had a chance to meet is Nettie’s husband, Huey Stanley!

It’s still unclear exactly why Huey doesn’t participate in filming, and initially he didn’t even seem to want his image on the internet. But earlier this year Nettie shared the first photo of her and Huey together (top) and since then she’s shared a few more, including this next picture of the two of them sunbathing together in Atlantic City. (Did I mention Nettie has nine kids?)

Here’s another photo of Nettie Stanley and her husband Huey in the early stages of a potential tenth child 😉

And speaking of kids, how about a fun Stanley family photo from Atlantic City? Sure thing!

And here’s Uncle Huey with Mellie’s newborn son, Richard:

And we’ll wrap things up with the only photo of Huey Stanley we have in which he is by himself — once again taken in Atlantic City:

I think Huey may have been dipping’ into the gals’ tanning motor oil!

We’re only one episode into Gypsy Sisters Season 2 and we still haven’t seen Huey, so I’m guessing he continues to avoid the TLC cameras. But who knows, right? Keep tuning in to new episodes of Gypsy Sisters Thursday nights at 9/8c to see if Huey changes his mind and gets in on the action!

In honor of Huey I thought I might end this post with the classic Merle Haggard song “Workin’ Man Blues,” not only because I’m sure Huey works hard to support his huge family, but because it’s the first time I’ve had an occasion where the opening line, “It’s a big job gettin’ by with nine kids and a wife” actually fits!

    Is this family incest? Same last names?

    • app

      Traditionally, married people share the same last name.

      • Toldu

        Actually They are related, there cousins.And her sibblings have different fathers also.Her maidan name is williams not stanley.And he didnt want to be on camera because he thought it could hurt his work. Also because this man has been arrested and charged for scamming people among other things like fraud.What criminal past or present would want there immage out there?You should check out netties mug shot and charges, shes no angel either!

        • who knows

          Kayla, is that you?

        • shebee

          I can believe these two are probably cousins one or twice removed, or in the gypsy way, not removed at all. I mean Annie was married to her first cousin! That’s why I always find it funny when they have these family brawls and disagreements and everyone states in disbelief that someone took someone’s side but they are supposed to be my sister/cousin/aunt, etc. Hell ya’ll all are family! Doubly related as we call it.

        • Family friend

          NOT TRUE! Her maiden is NOT Williams it’s Collier. Now everyone should also assume since “toldu” knows so much about this family, how much of what she posted above is true when she can’t even get Nettie’s maiden name correct. Nettie also has been forthcoming about her record. You should know that since you made a fake FB page and tried to expose her. She not only corrected the information that you posted, she shared her story.

          • Phoxee

            What happened to her 10th child?

          • Toldu

            I am sorry, But you are mistaken.I don’t have a facebook page and I signed on here as a guest.I am a fan of the show and I love doing research about the shows I watch, its like a hobby of mine.Her last name was Williams , But that was a ex husbands last name also. She did marry a collier also, correct? Everything I stated in my prior comment can be found in public records online. I would link them here but I am not sure if starcasm allows that. Also I would never try to “expose” Her as you said.These are just facts that fans like to know, well atleast I like to know. There were many horrible things I did see online in police records That I did not put in my comment , I was not trying to hurt anyones feelings BUT when you put your self on a reality show , you cant expect to have privacy anymore unfortunately. Atleast when it comes to public records. But thank you for correcting me about her maiden name, I had forgotten at the time she had 3 ex husbands not 2.My fault.

  • Rumneyroyaltyy

    But her sisters have the same last name? Lol this family is so hard to keep up w! love em tho esp nettie and Dallas

  • justme

    These girls aren’t even really from the Stanley blood line. I’ve got a lot of Stanley’s that are travelers as my clients and they hate these ladies with a passion. I still love then though.

    • Barbara

      There are multiple Stanley bloodlines…

      • miss Moose

        are the girls related to ralph stanley? (famous bluegrass artist). the last time i asked this, a lady who appeared to be nettie herself said “yes we are.” the person sounded very for real, used her handle and referred to details in her life; i believe it was her. she got mad because i said that she can sound ignorant at times, the way she expresses herself. that temper sure sounded like nettie !!! i like them all, but sometimes they can have annoying qualities. she’s got to show love to dallas, stat, though. riding her that way, screaming and hating on her is what’s making dallas a mess. try a little tenderness !!

  • LaLa84

    I just want to know how in the world do you have 9 kids and have a body like that?! She may be bat sh!t crazy but her body is out of this world for her age and having so many kids!

    • shebee

      I must agree. Nettie is insane but it’s so hard to believe she has 9 kids and she started so young. Most women would be worn out by now. I mean this chick is a grandma!

    • melizzi

      IT IS INSANE!! I had 3 & was a fitness trainer for 20+ years..,people used make comments they cudnt believe I had 3 (& I didn’t look as good as this!) NINE??!!?? I can’t wrap my mind around it! Tonight’s episode showed how gorgeous her legs are & her tush! Nice toned arms…hardly any wrinkles after all that tanning?!!? Yes…she’s bat-s**t crazy sometimes, and she owns that, but there is something about Nettie that I really like & respect. Now I’m bat-s**t crazy, maybe, but just being honest!

      • LaLa84

        I agree. I respect the fact that she has the patience to raise nine (well be it, wild) kids and have to deal with her insane sister as well. How does one woman hold down THAT fort?! And look good while doing so.

      • Renee Lee

        they have the kids quite young, when the body is more elastic. i would guess that she’s had some nips and tucks, since you can see that the breasts have been “done.” listen, if they were NOT done, they’d look like empty balloons, swinging down by her navel. very possible there was a tummy tuck. it just violates every natural law that she should look like that, so i’m sure she had some help. without surgical intervention, there’d be floppy, stretch marked skin all over her mid-section…… since there is not, we can guess that she had a little work. And i would have too. doesn’t matter, what she’s got to work with is prime material, no matter what. she’s a naturally very good looking lady. and i’m sure she works out, too. Is Nettie 40? hard to tell. just in the last 2 yrs though, her face is now s tarting to show the wear and tear.

        • Candy Cane

          I agree she’s had a bit of work, but not very much. As you’ve said, augmentation & tummy tuck, but I see no evidence of any type of facial surgery. What I do notice this season is that it appears she’s gone overboard w/botox in her forehead area..To me, that’s what’s made her look older. I noticed it 1st episode. Her forehead’s so smooth that it’s weighing on her upper eyelids on down..If she were to stop w/the botox, I think she’d look like she did 2yrs ago.
          She defies all logic w/her beauty, especially after having 9 kids. Her skin’s smooth, no cellulite, no “wing” arms, etc.No amount of surgery will remove cellulite and/or tighten the skin on all areas of the body. The only surgical procedure to remove stretch marks is to remove the skin. Even if she had them on her stomach, a tummy tuck wouldn’t remove all of them because they can’t remove that much skin. Maybe in-breading is to be credited, lol..Idk, but she’s a very pretty woman.
          P.S. The lupus which I just remembered she has, may be affecting the aging process that you’ve noticed.

          • melizzi

            I assumed she’d had a tummy tuck too…til I saw her in a bikini!! I’m hard pressed to believe she had one done! NOBODY (& I’ve done tons of research cuz I want one!) comes outta those without some tell-tale sign! Usually it’s the belly button that never looks ‘normal’. Then again…I’ll contradict myself here…Kate Gosselins TT came out RIDIC perfect! So.. Maybe she has?!? As for stretch marks…I’ve noticed, and envied(!!), how almost every ‘gypsy sister’, that has kids, doesn’t have’em! They still flaunt gorgeous abs after 3-4-9 kids!! So jealous!! (W/the exception of those younger girls…with their goo hanging out loud & proud…Ugh!)

            • Candy Cane

              I have to agree w/you. I don’t see any tell tale evidence either, but I went along w/it as being a possibility because she’s so unaffected by age & pregnancies. You’re right about belly buttons looking differently following tummy tucks too, so I’m changing my mind by agreeing w/you, lol…
              I don’t know how they all have such beautiful skin. Even when a tad heavy as a couple have been, still no ripples/cellulite, etc..Nettie looks10yrs younger than she is. She’s striking, imo. Mellie has a great figure, but isn’t as pretty. She looks hardened. Kayla has great skin too. Her daughters are very pretty. They’re going to be beautiful women. Joann & Laura have the darker features, hair/eyes & are also beautiful. I remember when Laura was shown brushing her teeth w/bleach last season to whiten them, lol..Mayo on her hair as conditioner..I tried it, but didn’t notice a difference, lol..I’ve also noticed the majority of them have beautiful blue eyes. Having no exposure to gypsies, I had no idea.

            • Amanda

              Gorgeous ABS lol? Gotta bust out laughing

              • melizzi

                Wha?!? You don’t think so? Or the descriptive sounds funny? =}

          • miss Moose

            i thought of botox, too. But the specific thing i referred to is the change in the skin itself, the rather sudden change in texture, not talkin wrinkles, i mean that it doesn’t look full and fresh anymore. She’s starting to get the kind of skin that women get around 45 to 50 yrs of age; this happens when you’re middle aged and your estrogen sharply declines. There is no dewiness anymore, you look dry and haggard. that’s why i asked what her age is….. i thought she was around 37 at first, but her face now looks 47….. (?) ps she’s a fine one to call anyone else immature. some of her behavior would make a 5 yr old blush. just review her talking about dallas — she was mocking her own daughter like a grade-school bully would do. sickening.

            • Candy Cane

              You’re right

              • Soledad

                I think she looks rougher in the face now because of her lupus. She has flares and can’t function well.. I have to imagine that would show in the face.

                • Candy Cane

                  Excellent point! I forgot all about that. No doubt that’s having an affect on her skin & the exhausted, pekid look in her eyes. I have an auto-immune disease & I get that same look in my eyes when I’m feeling really bad. Duh, I can’t believe I didn’t think of that!
                  Damn, my bad! Thank you for pointing that out.

          • miss Moose

            okay, so she has naturally good skin and used a LOT of cocoa butter…… that could keep stretch marks off her stomach, but a multiparous woman, Gravida 9 could not have a tight and smooth abdomen as she does without some help. c’mon, situps can only do so much. it’s all good. and she looks good. i just can’t fool myself into believing that her appearance is all natural, cuz it isn’t. it’s the most common thing in the world: a “mommie makeover.” why would she get the breasts done and NOT do the other? just sayin’.

            • Candy Cane

              Sorry, I just found this comment!
              There’s more than one reason I’ve reached my conclusions.
              Firstly, cocoa butter does nothing to prevent or erase stretch marks, so this wouldn’t be the reason for their absence. That’s a BIG myth..It’s genetic. You’re either going to get stretch marks or you’re not. Nothing can stop them. Once they’ve occurred, there’s nothing but surgery to remove them. Of course this occurs during a tummy tuck, but usually the marks extend beyond the surgical site, so those remain. All of the expensive “laser” treatments & creams, et al are flat out ripoffs.
              Women carrying full term pregnancies who haven’t a stretch mark in sight & used the cream believe it was the cream that prevented them, when in tact it was genetics..Chances are their mother, grandmother & other female ancestors also avoided them..Same goes for the women who didn’t use any creams, etc..They’re told they should’ve used cocoa butter as if they only have themselves to blame..Good chances are their mother, grandmother & so on also had them. Pet peeve of mine.

              Nettie & the other women on the show have unbelievable skin tone. Most admit to not exercising. Most if not all admit to tanning either outdoors or in a tanning bed. The only thing that explains this is through their lineage.

              Mellie hasn’t had a mommy makeover, but she’s also tightened up her stomach for the most part & it’s absent of stretch marks. Same w/Dallas, Laura, Kayla. I can tell they haven’t had tucks. Maybe Nettie, but not the rest.

  • Steve

    Gypsy’s….is that what we’re calling white trash now?!

    • Natasha Fatale

      They are another race of people are you really that big of an idiot?

    • Barbara

      Nah, these particular “gypsies” just also happen to be white trash. People with zero class, lack of education, and poor style sense hail from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds.

      • FormerlyKnownAsB

        poor style sense… now that is quite the understatement, lol.

    • Eskrania

      if I were to comment on a Kanye/Kim story and call Kanye West “black trash”, wouldnt that be racist? Please think before you insert race into an insult.

      The “gypsy” way of life might be different than yours but its not less or better than anyone else. accept the diversity of cultures in the US and you’ll be a more enlightened person.

      • birdieaz

        You made a perfect comparison, thank u also for your post being level headed. Nicely said regardless of your belief, wish many more people reacted to things they don’t understand the same. Maybe the hate derived from the simple fact of not understanding a person 4 any reason would start to go away.

    • Bruge

      all the gypsies around the world are the same…trust me…white or darker skin, same shit

    • Maxx

      There are Gypsies all over the world, and they all pretty much act the same

  • Lara

    Are all the kids his?

    • Toldu

      No, just the youngest ones. Her children have 3 different fathers.

  • Jolene

    I went out with Huey not long ago and we went to the Logans in Martinsburg. Very handsom man with very nice hair and skin.

    • Ninnie

      Yeah, you wish Jolene!!

    • melizzi

      WTF?!? Trick…do u have a death wish!? Are u saying u went out with a son called Huey? Hope so, cuz I’d hate to be u if Ninnie or Mellie tracked u down! Just say’n.,,

      • Renee Lee

        what’s with “ninnie”? thought her name’s nettie. and i have heard that the husbands run around — don’t know for sure cuz i’m not there. there are strange questions that keep coming up, though……. like how can the women all be named stanley when they’re sisters and one of them is married?
        how come, with a slew of kids in the family, NONE of them look alike? Joann, nettie, tanya, mellie……. there should be a noticeable sisterly resemblance, and there is none. it’s just weird. maybe there’s a lot of stepping out on all sides? and for the smart ones who are gonna lip off, if you don’t want people lookin’ and askin, then don’t be on a national tv show !!! and anyway, i’m just puzzled, but not a hater. i love mellie. i enjoy nettie, usually, and kayla and laura…….. but nettie, girl, you do yourself no favors by going off on dallas — you made yourself look like the worst mom ever, since no mother should ever hate on her own child, no matter what they’ve done. it’s called unconditional love.

        • Missmiss

          Maybe Nettie’s given her enough “unconditional love” and trying some “tough love” now. I mean Dallas left home without her own kids for four months! What kind of love was she showing her own kids doing that??!!

          • Renee Lee

            well, re: Dallas….. when you’re raised badly, you turn out badly. If Dallas had received lots of nurturing and unconditional love, she would, most likely, not even be the mess that she is now. Unfortunately, we saw the “real” Nettie when she ripped into her daughter, and it ain’t pretty. No mom should be like that — ever. you’re supposed to have your child’s back at all times. she was mocking her, belittling her, humiliating her, totally failing to sympathize or comfort her — and Dallas was in obvious pain. she did not seem any more “drunk” than anyone else — she seemed pretty coherent to me. And she pointed out the truth: Nettie has real hostility toward this girl. For a “mom”, she was responding to her more like an angry stranger engaged in a bar brawl. I know about abusive, psycho moms cause i have one. I recognize the behavior. all sympathy should go to dallas, believe me. That wasn’t a mom, that was a cold, vicious, maniac. I like her waaayyy less now. bad move, nettie.

          • miss Moose

            don’t forget, Nettie’s been trying to NOT show her bad side on camera…. she even wigged out on mellie for putting across the idea that Nettie wasn’t being nice to dallas. Nettie wants to hide her bad behavior, but it leaks out anyway. didn’t anyone else notice when she acted hostile to Kat (i think it was) while they were all driving in the car ? The poor child, who can’t be more than 5, said something pretty bland and Nettie’s response was to say “shut – the – hell – up.” just like that, with great emphasis and nastiness. who DOES THAT? to their own small child? she has issues, indeed. it all adds up perfectly when you consider that Lottie wasn’t much of a Mom…… this stuff continues in a cycle. that’s why mellie’s a wreck half the time. I think that a lot of the women give attention to BABIES for a while because they’re cuddly and cute……. once the child is a little older, look out — here comes Mommie dearest.

        • melizzi

          Ninnie is Nettie’s nickname…they just call her one or the other randomly. When Mellie was in labor she’d use both names on & off…so? That’s all I know!

        • Candy Cane

          I found a partial family tree on some blog today, can’t remember the name, but if you google Stanley, nettie, mellie family tree, I’m sure you’ll find it.
          Joann is married to her 1st cousin.

  • JDF

    Please stop breeding!!! PLEASE!!

  • Kelly

    Straight trash, all of them. The way they fight, drink, cuss and advocate fighting in front of very small children should land DCS at their house instead of a fan base. It’s beyond disgusting. I’d rather watch Honey Boo Boo than these trashy whores any day.

    • Crystal

      Totally agreeing there with u there! Great point! I’ve been wondering that all along!

  • Super mag

    The men won’t appear on camera, because they travel around the country ripping off elderly people with shoddy paving jobs. I imagine this family has a bad rep in the traveller community for bringing attention to the existence of gypsies in the US and potentially drawing attention to the way they prey on confused senior citizens.

    • Al

      I’ve dealt with these people in the past. They’re rude and demanding. There’s this sense of entitlement you get from them that just hangs in the air. They would come into OfficeMax Print and Document Center and want us to type up pay-stubs for them. We couldn’t help but think that sounded a tad illegal, since none of us were qualified to legitimately process that type of thing. Nettie would bring in these hand written notes and want us to fashion a pay-stub out of them. O_O

      • Soledad

        The quiet one- JoAnne, I think is her name, was busted on scamming tens of thousands of dollars from Target.

    • rich lipschutz

      You are right on. They are crooks and small time thieves. This is the reason the men don’t show themselves on camera. They can’t take the chance of being recognized. In Florida they are called Murphy’s. Drive around and look for targets. Mostly elderly. They also know how to shoplift like nothing you have ever seen. Smooth as can be and usually work in teams. They are all very close and when trouble comes to them they hit the road. They also know how to work the system. Welfare, disability and lawsuits for fender benders. They are bottom feeders that teach their children at a young age how to work the system. As they get older they young men start traveling with the elders to learn how to be scrum and bottom feeders too.

      • Crystal

        I’m going out on a different limb here, but I’m really quite amazed that all of the women on here are driving nice , new cars, shop all the time, always throw expensive parties, having tanning beds inside their homes, and go to New Orleans, and Rent a freaking Mansion for a week??????? How in the heck do they afford to live like that? Their husbands are pavers? Just saying!!!

  • Libra Scales

    Nettie is the shit! I love everything about her crazy ass! She always looks flawless and she don’t take shit from no one!

  • Amanda

    PLEASE both Nettie and Kayla said they had breast implants. If that’s the stuff they announce, who knows what they don’t (Lipo or tummy tuck). All the do is show their stomach, what you think? Even with all that work not one has a body to be shown half naked especially not the jiggling bellies. Kayla has the exact Lipo scars and her skin moves more than the fat. Nettie had 4 kids by the time she was 19, probably when her body didn’t form. They need to fix the inbreed faces and meth infested teeth , Sorry.
