Americans of course are fond of doing things bigger and better than us Brits, and their version of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings is no exception apparently…
According to The Sun’s TV Biz, Gypsy Brides US – which debuts on Discovery Real Time as of Wednesdays, May 9 at 10pm – will feature incest, girlfights, boob flashing and general mayhem.
In one scene in the show’s premiere, we’re to see the maid-of-honour at a wedding grappling another woman to the ground and generally setting about her.
A show insider said, “This series is set to be more brash and more flamboyant than ever.
“As always, it will be a colourful, outrageous show but it goes further than usual, including storylines about incest and a number of punch-ups in between the usual celebrations and parties the gypsies love to hold…”
As mentioned, Gypsy Brides US premieres on Discovery Real Time on May 9, but for now, here’s a sneak peek…
And here is what Discovery Real Time’s website has to say of the new series…
Just when you thought it couldn’t get bigger, fatter and even more lavish… it did!
From the makers of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, comes Gypsy Brides US, a brand new series for Discovery Real Time which takes viewers behind closed caravan doors and into the lives of America’s Gypsy and Traveller communities.
There are an estimated one million Gypsies and Travellers throughout the US, but most live in complete secrecy, away from the judgment and discrimination that plague their communities. However, their lifestyles are anything but discrete – they blend traditional values with modernday influences, resulting in weddings and other celebrations that are large, loud, and lavish.
Gypsy Brides US goes inside their homes and attends their parties to share what it’s like to be living as a Gypsy in America.
This series, viewers will meet a variety of larger than life characters, including 17 year old Shyanne who has met her fiancée just twice. She has never kissed a man before and like most gypsy girls does not believe in sex before marriage.
On her wedding day she has to decide whether she will kiss her groom in her supersized dress; In Atlanta, proud gypsy father Pat Baby, is holding a party to find a husband for his 14 year old daughter Priscilla. He’s determined she will be the belle of the ball in her spectacular pink dress which weighs as much as she does!
O man I cannot wait to see this show!
