Plot Synopsis

After making their appearance in an episode of MY BIG FAT AMERICAN GYPSY WEDDING, the Stanley sisters return with their own reality series, GYPSY SISTERS, which follows the women from the extended Stanley family in a gypsy community in Martinsburg, West Virginia. With their husbands constantly on the road for work, the women are expected to stay home, cook, clean, and raise the children. When they're not busy doing household chores and working to look their best, they keep themselves entertained by involving themselves in each others lives. The Gypsy sisters appearing in Season 1 were: Nettie Stanley, the outspoken matriarch of the Stanley clan, who stirs up drama, inserts herself into the lives of her nine children, and contends with her younger sister; her sister, Mellie, who is the self-proclaimed black sheep of the family, because she's a stripper with a proclivity for drinking, swearing, and getting into fist fights; her cousin, Kayla Williams, who strives to be the perfect gypsy wife and mother but butts heads with her husband, Richard, about raising their teenage daughter, Danielle; and her cousin's sister-in-law, Laura Johnston, who moves in with Kayla's family, making her worry about having 11 people under one roof. TLC aired the Season 2 premiere of GYPSY SISTERS on Thursday, December 5, 2013 from 9-11pm ET/PT, showing a two-part episode, "Web of Lies," which introduced three new family members -- JoAnn, Annie and Sheena -- who traveled to West Virginia to help Nettie, Mellie and Kayla bring the family back together. Fresh out of jail and pregnant with her first child, Mellie stoked the flames of drama that surround her older sister, Nettie, whose feud with cousin Kayla came to a head with a colossal gypsy brawl. After the dust settled, JoAnn, the middle sister of Nettie and Mellie, traveled from Tennessee to Martinsburg to help heal wounds, but after her recent separation from her husband of 13 years, she starts a summer fling with a boyfriend, who ran from the law. To help Kayla after the brawl, her fiery cousin, Sheena, and her younger sister, Annie -- both separated from their husbands -- moved to Martinsburg to stay for the summer. GYPSY SISTERS returned for its third season on Thursday, August 20, 2014 from 9-11pm ET/PT on TLC. Coming off a tumultuous ending to last season, matriarch Nettie and her cousin Kayla aim to put the bad blood behind them and move on for the sake of their families. With their lives so intertwined, their ailing relationship takes a toll on the whole unit, and the other girls try to help patch things up for everyone. Kayla relies on the ladies as she struggles in her 17-year marriage to Richard, and her relationship with Nettie, although rocky, helps her get through these tough times. Mellie, the group's self-proclaimed wild child, now has a child of her own which has calmed her partying ways, and her focus has changed from drama to providing a stable life for Richard. That doesn't stop her, though, from putting her nose in other people's business which gets her in trouble. Joann finally comes into her own, and after living with Nettie for a year, she feels she has her own voice and can fight for her family. Annie, after learning how to be a traditional gypsy wife, seems to have it all, but in typical gypsy style, there are always unexpected surprises. In Season 3, the Stanley ladies take a road trip back to the horse races complete with a tricked-out party bus and venture on an epic trip to New Orleans that leads to true gypsy Bourbon Street brawls. The family also celebrates birthdays for both baby Richards, and their moms Dallas and Mellie try to put their issues aside and make the day special for their sons. On Sunday, May 31, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT on TLC, GYPSY SISTERS returned for its fourth season. Season 4 opens with the girls settling into their new living situations as Kayla enjoys her single life, Mellie prepares for a new baby, and Nettie and Joann adjust to having Mellie out of their house. Things aren't all sweet, though, and at Mellie's baby shower, tempers flare as Nettie and Kayla fight over what Mellie should name her baby. Throughout the season of GYPSY SISTERS, the Stanley women deal with births, wild fights, unprecedented tragedy and a real attempt to keep their family from falling apart.
TLC premiered the Season 4 finale of GYPSY SISTERS on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT. The season ender, "Wildest, Craziest, OMG Moments," revisits the most outrageous and hilarious moments from past seasons of the Gypsy Sisters. From epic fights to bling-tastic celebrations, one thing is for certain -- there's never a dull moment in this wild and crazy family.
