Yes, “Romeo and Juliet” features some of the most romantic dialogue Shakespeare ever wrote — but it's not quite so alluring when you think that Juliet was barely a teenager. With that in mind, you might understand why “Gypsy Sisters” star Nettie Stanley wasn't all that thrilled when her daughter Nukkie wanted to run off with her very first boyfriend, Pookie Small (don't you love these names?). It's “Romeo and Juliet” Gypsy style, with bad clothing and neon pink nails! In this exclusive clip from “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” (Thurs. May 8 at 9:00 p.m. ET), get a glimpse of Nukkie and Pookie's rush to the altar.
After two years, Nukkie finally has her mom's support (or has just worn her down) and it's all systems go for a wedding. Alas, Nettie isn't too thrilled about her new in-law Dovie Small, so there's always the chance the wedding could go up in flames or at least end in a fistfight. It won't be the classiest wedding, but it could be the most explosive!
