On last week’s My Big American Gypsy Wedding, we got to see longtime faithful teen lovers Nukkie Stanley and Pookie Small finally tie the knot, bringing a momentary truce to their famously warring families.
It’s a little different story on tonight’s all-new episode, “Wedded to Disaster.”
Though they have two kids, 22-year-old Alyssa has frequently cheated on her longtime gypsy boyfriend, Lacy — more than a dozen times, according to Lacy’s doting mother Mary. If a gypsy woman is unfaithful, she is shunned by the entire gypsy community. “You can’t turn a whore into a housewife,” explains Lacy’s sister Maggie, echoing her family’s belief that Alyssa is “dirty.”
But Alyssa is a gorger, and her Romney man is willing to give her one more shot at forever. Alyssa hasn’t cheated in more than a year and is determined to do right by her man.
“It’s time to be a good person because Lacy takes wonderful care of me and he deserves it,” she says.
Er, right after the bachelorette party, which involves Alyssa, her sisters and a male stripper, while Lacy’s at home with the kids.
Will Alyssa ultimately stay true to her word — and her man? Can Maggie and Mary change their mind and welcome her officially into the fold? Find out tonight when an all-new episode of My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding premieres at 9/8CT on TLC.
