The Gypsies are Back!

It's a poorly kept secret that I love reality shows.  I know, it's shameful, but I don't think that anything can beat a good table flip...


or a classy beauty pageant…



One of my favorite shows is "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding."  In fact, when I wrote a post a few months ago about tacky weddings (see HERE), I used several photos from this extraordinary show: 




















So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered that a new reality show is premiering on Sunday, February 10.  It's entitled "Gypsy Sisters" and it's on TLC:


One of these women is thirty-eight, has nine children and two grandchildren (named Demi and Ashton).   Another girl is a pole dancer at the Pink Pony; she's the black sheep of the family because she's not following in the traditional role of the gypsy woman:  marriage at fifteen followed by having babies…lots of babies.  Another's mother has just gotten out of prison.  (I won't tell you any more because I don't want to spoil the two-hour season premiere.)

Suffice it to say that while most of you will be watching stuffy old "Downton Abbey" on Sunday night, I'll be watching my new favorite show.  

What would the Dowager Countess of Grantham say?
