Gypsy Sisters stars Nettie Stanley, Mellie Stanley, Kayla Williams, and Laura Johnston have come to be known as “The Stanley Sisters,” and they even had a one-hour special by that title on TLC after their initial appearance on My Big Fat America Gypsy Wedding. But, despite what their nickname might imply, these four gals are not sisters at all — something that has caused a little bit of confusion for those tuning in to Gypsy Sisters in its inaugural season. So, I’ve gone through the trouble of putting together the Gypsy Sisters Stanley family tree that explains just how the four main characters are related!
On the premiere season of TLC’s drama-packed reality series Gypsy Sisters the family hierarchy gets turned on its ear when Mellie and sister Nettie’s mom Lottie Mae Stanley is released from prison after serving nine years for a 2004 bank fraud conviction. Mellie seems to make the adjustment as well as Mellie makes any sort of adjustment, but matriarch Nettie seems to have a hard time adjusting back to the way things were more than a decade ago. And speaking of the ways things were more than a decade ago, keep reading to check out photos of a young Lottie Mae, including one with Nettie as a young child!
Though reality television is chock full of eyebrow raising shenanigans, few can compare to the jaw-dropping and headline-grabbing antics of Gypsy Sisters star Mellie Stanley. She drinks, she strips, she fights, and she ALWAYS says exactly what’s on her mind. Even among her outspoken Gypsy Sisters cast mates Mellie stands apart with her unpredictability and volatility. So what was it that caused her to be the way she is? A huge part is her amazingly unstable life that has included watching her mother get arrested when Mellie was just 13, followed by hopping around between relatives and foster care before ending up in two different abusive marriages as a teenager.
In the back-to-back premiere episodes of Gypsy Sisters Mellie Stanley’s ex Robbie reenters the picture and the two become engaged, but only after Robbie insists Mellie give up some of her wild ways — including her job stripping. But, it appears that Robbie has some wild and carefree ways of his own! Keep reading for a couple of his mug shots from 2011 when he faced charges that include robbery, assault and abduction!
If you watched the season premiere of TLC’s Gypsy Sisters then you saw the bombshell revelation that Mellie’s getting married! That’s right, Mellie Stanley and her man Robbie are planning to walk down the aisle and we all know what that means… it’s another big fat American gypsy wedding y’all! And not just any big fat American gypsy wedding, this is “Hellie Mellie” Stanley we’re talking about! Keep reading to see photos of Mellie’s unforgettable wedding dress, and find out how she and Robbie are doing now!
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!
Viewers of TLC’s new reality series Gypsy Sisters might be surprised to find out that “Hellie Mellie” Stanley isn’t the most notorious of the Stanley ladies — not by a long shot. This season she reunites with her mother, 61-year-old Lottie Mae Stanley, who has just completed a nine-year prison sentence after being convicted of bank fraud in 2004. The conviction came after a string of cons spread out over at least 11 states that had federal authorities looking for Lottie for more than six years, and even landed her a starring role on America’s Most Wanted in March of 2003! Keep reading for Lottie’s extensive criminal history that apparently included using Mellie (then 13) to scam banks for more than $800,000!
Sunday night on TLC television viewers will get to see the return of West Virginia’s resident gypsy hellion Mellie Stanley as she and the rest of the “Stanley sisters” deliver two hours of Romany drama during the series premiere of Gypsy Sisters. Judging from the preview trailer, it looks to be one hell of a ride as Nettie, Kayla and Laura hop on board the Mellie Express! But, the trailer also foreshadows perhaps the only event that could derail the inevitable trainwreck by hinting that… Mellie Stanley is pregnant?!? Keep reading to find out if it’s true, although I should probably warn you that the post comes with a serious SPOILER ALERT!
