GYPSY SISTERS Mellie Stanley wedding photos

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!

Mellie is the self-described black sheep of the Stanley family, and she is clearly comfortable eschewing some of the traditional gypsy taboos (like stripping), but will she abandon their history of lavish, blinged-out matrimonial attire? Hell no!

Tonight is the series premiere of TLC’s Gypsy Sisters as the network brings back its breakout stars the Stanley Sisters from My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding for their own spin-off reality series. Kayla, Nettie and Laura all bring an entertaining superdose of Romany gypsy drama and attitude, but I don’t think anyone would argue that the show’s true drama dynamo is Mellie Stanley. The rebellious 23-year-old is reality TV gold thanks in part to her propensity for alcohol consumption, stripping, and not taking any sh*t from anybody.

But, viewers might be surprised to find out that “Hellie Mellie” isn’t the most notorious of the Stanley ladies — not by a long shot.
