The latest episode of TLC’s “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” follows Irish traveller Paddy, who was attacked by a member of a rival gypsy clan — he even survived a gunshot wound to the head. But despite moving to the country with his wife, he continues to suffer violent encounters.
As payback, he’s arranged a bare-knuckle fight between his son, Simey, and someone from the family of the man who attacked him.
“We’re fighting for our father’s honor,” Simey says in Zap2it‘s exclusive preview of the episode, airing Friday, April 20 at 10 p.m. on TLC. “Letting people know you can’t hit our father and get away with it, it’s as simple as that. If they do, they’ve got to suffer the consequences — which is fight. We don’t like weapons or anything like that, we really love to use these [gestures to his fists] and that’s the best we do. And when it’s over, it’s over.”
