'Gypsy Sisters' Premiere: Stripper Mellie Eats Shellacked Candy From Custom-Made Bra (VIDEO)

The "Gypsy Sisters" are the latest members of the Traveler culture to get their own series. The new TLC show follows four sisters living in West Virginia who like to party and get into all kinds of trouble. The Stanley sisters were previously featured on "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding" where they quickly learned that Mellie Stanley was the breakout star of the show.

In the premiere, she needed a new outfit for stripping, so her friend put together a candy-themed ensemble. "I’m putting candy buttons on this bra, but it’s shellac so you can’t eat them," her friend told her. But that didn't stop Mellie.

"Tasted pretty good though," she said after sampling a shellac-coated candy.

Hopefully, she's stopped doing that, though. According to Starcasm, Mellie appears to be pregnant now. As the show was filmed a while ago, it's unlikely -- though possible -- that her pregnancy will figure into the series. If it does, though, Mellie's going to have to learn to really tone down her wild ways. And possibly find a new line of work.

Keep up with the antics of the "Gypsy Sisters" next Sunday at 8 p.m. EST on TLC.
