Maid of honor and former Gypsy Wedding star arrested for stealing bride’s purse, wedding rings

Former My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding stars Eden and Elvis Boswell were arrested at a wedding Sunday in NC after they allegedly stole the bride-to-be’s purse containing wedding rings and $1,000 in honeymoon cash just prior to the ceremony. Did I mention Eden was the maid of honor? (And judging from her mug shot photo, a topless maid of honor?) How about Eden being eight months pregnant? And you seriously will not believe how this nuptials-wrecking Bonnie and Clyde got caught!!!

The dramatic episode of Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding featuring the infamous catfight between show star Mellie Stanley and Diamond was such a ratings bonanza for TLC and the Americanized version of the popular reality series that the network brought the “Stanley sisters” back for an hour-long follow-up special. But apparently that wasn’t enough to satisfy the American television viewing audience’s hunger for Gypsy drama, over-the-top weddings, and teenagers dressed in very little, very shiny clothing because TLC is not only bringing Mellie, Nettie, Kayla and Laura back again, they’re giving the Stanley sisters their own series! Keep reading for the deets and the preview trailer and reality television’s soon-to-be latest breakout superstar, Mellie.

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding: Why do Romany Gypsies dress so provocatively if they have conservative values?

Both the original My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, and the new American version on TLC are television documentaries that follow teenage Romany (or Romani, short for Romanichal) Gypsies as they either prepare to get married or for a big milestone party like a birthday or prom (or in one case, for a party to find a husband.) The dresses are big, sparkly beyond belief, and are often topped off with the monstrous tiaras that toddlers often compete for an another TLC show. The wedding and special event dresses are head-turning but what can really get viewers riled up are the sexy outfits the young teenage girls wear as normal party wear, or even every day clothes.

Romanichal Gypsy women grow up fast, with the ideal ages for marriage being between 14 and 16 years old. In the second episode of TLC’s new reality series My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding we meet Priscilla, a 14-year-old Romanichal Gypsy girl from Douglasville, Georgia, whose dad Pat Baby is planning an extravagant Halloween party in hopes of finding her a husband. Keep reading to see photos of Priscilla on display in full blinged out Gypsy regalia that includes a Queen of Hearts dress with more than 56 yards of pink ruffles, and a “dance/sexy outfit” with pink-hearted hot pants, tasseled top, and knee-high high-heeled boots – all of which completely covered with over 50,000 crystals!

TLC’s My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, inspired by their hugely successful European-based Big Fat Gypsy Wedding series, premieres tonight with an episode featuring 17-year-old virgin Shyanne, who is marrying her 18-year-old fiance Michael after having met him only twice. As little as she knows about her betrothed, she knows even less about what to expect on her wedding night because in Romanichal Gypsy culture girls are purposefully kept in the dark about anything having to do with sex with the assumption the husband will teach her all she needs to know. Keep reading for a video preview and some photos of Shyanne in her lavish and abundantly diametered hoop wedding dress.

TLC has a show that looks to delve in to the secret world of gypsies living in America. It’s called My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, but if the teaser clip leaked to TMZ is any indication, it’s TLC goes GTL on steroids! We know a thing or two about reality throw downs and this is without question the most skin-exposing eye-gouging fight to ever grace the genre, and that’s saying a lot. I have to admit this show wasn’t on my radar, but it certainly is now! I guess that’s the point of letting this gem slip out. Did I say gems slipping out?
