How accurate is the portrayal of gypsies on My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding?


I was shocked when I watched the show but then I thought about Jersey Shore. I'm Italian and my family and Italian friends are nothing like that. Just wondering if the same crude stereotypes are being used on this show.

    Thank you Shanti. I have to admit, I had no idea that 'gypsy' was a deragatory term. Thank you for clarifying. Your description has made me interested in the Roma culture. Its sad that there are such negative ideas around their culture.
