I never knew they were here in Douglasville. Bo problem with that, but it makes this palce look bad when the dad said his sister was a victim of murder? Was she killed in Douglasville?
Where do they get the thousands and thousands amd THOUSANDS of dollars for those clothes? Those outfits were beautiful with bling.
Some of them may get money from scams, there have been a lot of painting, driveway treatment, and roofing scams of old people that involved intimidation traced back to similar communities.

Ok so I just happened upon this convo.... Here are a few answers to your qestions....first yes there are gypsys in Georgia all over for that fact. I was not on the show because I would never make our culture look like that. The gypsys I know don't mess with ppl like that. We have morals and respect but along the way that gets hard to find in the younger gypsys. Now I'm 26 I am married by choice and he is also a gypsy we are not 1 cousins or anything lol we have two children and livein a normal home.there is good and bad in every culture...wild and "normal" in every culture everyone has free will even God gives you that. Not all of us are partyers but the ppl you seen on the show well sadly that is just the way they are and the saddest part is they actually act like that. It's not right and I don't agree with half of what they were saying. Some do over price their work and some try to make a honest living. I don't think you can judge a whole culture by the poor example they have shown. Our culture has been a secret culture since the HItler put are ppl in the camps along with the Jews. But now I think the ones here in America followed England and thought they were gonna make it Hollywood lol....yes I live in Georgia but not in Dville...I have family all over and as a child we traveled all over but those days are Over. My grandmother was born in a tent and drove caravans....I'm proud of who I am as a person and hope everyone can find happiness in there life and gods blessings

Many years ago my grandmother who lived off of Austell Road was scammed by some Gypsy Travelers. They intimidated a 90 year old woman into letting them pave her driveway. She paid them what they asked for then a few days later they came back and physically intimidated her into giving them more money. She didn't tell us about it for a few weeks because she was embarrased.
Gypsies? Or Irish Travelers? This sounds more like the group of people known as the Irish Travlers. While some Gypsies might be dishonest; the group that goes around scamming people, all across the nation, are the Irish Travlers. They tried this scam with my father 6 years ago. They didn't even pave our driveway, they just claimed they did and said my Dad owned them money.(My father hired a private company years before to paved his driveway.) They didn't know I was visiting (this was in another county). I came out of a back bedroom, with my Dad's shotgun, and when they saw me they took off running. At my urging my Dad called the Sherriff's department. The deputy that came told us these people were called Irish Travelers and they were a nation wide problem.

Both groups are involved in theft and cons like the driveway scam. Irish Travelers are a much smaller group and are not gypsy's but are sometimes incorrectly called that because of their lifestyle. I have no clue how many who are identified as gypsies are involved in crime but as a Romani (Gypsy is an english term) you might learn growing up of a tale of the young Gypsy boy who saved the life of Jesus. The tale (with some variation) tells of four nails made to be used in the crucifixion: one each for the hands of Jesus, one for his feet and the fourth, a nail of gold, for his heart. Late at night the Gypsy boy stole the golden nail, so when the crucifixion took place the next day, only three nails remained. God appears to the young Gypsy boy telling the child his act of thievery saved Jesus from having the nail plunged through his heart. In payment for the boy's deed, God allowed the Gypsies the right to steal with no moral consequences ... forever and ever.
Wow, so that's how they justify what they do. Thanks for sharing.

It is just a story and while you might hear a Gypsy say they were not raised that way you can safely reply, maybe not but I bet you know people in your community who were.

Here is the deal....all of us are talking about it. That means that TLC has been successful. Whether the show depicts truth or not doesn't matter. Its the money that the network has made getting viewer attention that matters.

Thanks D-ville Resident and Presley Mill for the info.
Now I'll have to get a season pass on DirecTV and explain to my wife that I am watching for research purposes only.
Now, I thought Gypsy's were traveling folks who didn't stay in places long? If these people own a house on Presley Mill and own a business on Bankhead are they really Gypsys or are they just white trash redneck hillbillys who called the show at the end of one of the Gypsy Wedding episodes and thought it would be cool to be on TV?
I find it ironic thought Foxhall Farm was in one of the episodes since 14 year old white trash weddings is the complete opposite end of the spectrum of the type of clientele they hoping to attract down there. I am sure it wasn't prominently displayed but if people recognize it...opps.
I'll have to be sure to thank Bravo and TLC for killing Douglas County a little more every day. Thanks for the info all.
I must agree! I'm from valdosta, georgia. They make the south look stupid! Ppl up north think we are inbred and backwards. This is so damn trashy!!
