Having been the oldest of three sisters, Nettie had a lot of practical hands-on experience in raising a family as her mother was away either on the run or in prison. This experience was just what she needed to be successful in the 2 roles that Nettie played, one in My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and the other in Gypsy Sisters.
My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding was her first TV appearance and even though the film was not such a great hit, it opened the door to her getting the lead role in Gypsy Sisters. This series was such a success that Nettie appeared in all 32 episodes of the first four seasons. Nettie appeared in the showsalong with her biological sisters Mellie Stanley and JoAnn Wells.
Nettie pulled out of the show to concentrate on her family after her 22-year-old stepson, Rocky was stabbed to death. This brought to an end Nettie’s bright TV acting career.
