"GYPSY SISTERS" FOCUS ON FAMILY IN NEW SEASON ON TLC
The Stanley sisters are back for a third season on Thursday, August 21 at 9/8c
NEW YORK - July 28, 2014 - The GYPSY SISTERS are back and still over-the-top in a two-hour season premiere on TLC Thursday, August 21st at 9/8c. The third season chronicles more Stanley family drama as they navigate breakups, makeups and road trips, giving viewers a one-of-a-kind look at the jaw-dropping ways of the infamous gypsy clan.
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.
Throughout this season of GYPSY SISTERS, follow the Stanley ladies as they 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. With Nettie's lupus in remission, she is focused on her health and uses her traditional gypsy remedies to live a healthier lifestyle. The season culminates with a beachside vow renewal ceremony, but in true gypsy fashion, everything is down to the wire and nothing is as it seems.
GYPSY SISTERS is produced by Firecracker Films for TLC.
