Gypsy Rose Blanchard is FREE

Gypsy Rose was released from prison right before the New Year. She was rekindled with her father Rob Blanchard, family and her husband! Yes she’s married! Gypsy just served an eight year prison sentence for the murder of her mothers Dee-Dee Blanchard. Congratulations on being free and finally able to live your life…. If you don’t know here’s the back story.

Gypsy was born July 27,1991 to Clauddine “Dee-Dee” and Rob Blanchard. The two meet in high school and fell in love. They got married and had a beautiful baby girl. Unfortunately their relationship ended in divorce.

“Despite his divorce from Dee Dee, Rod maintained a close relationship with Gyspy during her early years. However, as Gypsy got older, the two became estranged as Dee Dee controlled many aspects of Gypsy’s life, eventually making her undergo years of intense medical treatments that she never needed. Gypsy was a victim of Munchausen by proxy, a form of abuse in which a guardian may seek attention or sympathy by making their child ill or exaggerating their illness.” (People Magazine)

When Gypsy was 8 years old, Dee Dee described her as suffering from leukemia and muscular dystrophy and said she required a wheelchair and feeding tube. The list of medical problems that Dee Dee related about her daughter would go on to include seizures, asthma, and hearing and visual impairments.

Due to Dee Dee’s actions, Gypsy was prescribed a litany of medications and had to sleep using a breathing machine. She also went through multiple surgeries, including procedures on her eyes and removal of her salivary glands. When Gypsy’s teeth rotted—perhaps due to her medications, missing salivary glands, or neglect—they were pulled out.

Yet, the truth was that Gypsy could walk, didn’t need a feeding tube, and didn’t have cancer. Her head was bald only because her mother shaved off her hair. Experts believe Dee Dee had a mental illness known as Munchausen syndrome by proxy (also called factitious disorder imposed on another), which made her fabricate her daughter’s ill health in order to receive attention and sympathy for taking care of a sick child.

Dee Dee appeared to be a charming, devoted mother, so people believed her….

This behavior continued for years into her teenage years. Dee-Dee claimed the two was victim of Hurricane Katrina and received assistance from multiple government agencies. She also used the hurricane as the reason she didn’t have Gypsy proper medical history report. Medical treatments were done to prove Gypsy conditions but it always came up negative. If any doctor didn’t believe Dee-Dee she would never see them again. Once Gypsy was of age to speak for herself Dee-Dee Groomed her not to volunteer their personal information to anyone!

In 2011, Gypsy tried to get away from her mother by running away with a man she’d met at a science fiction convention. But Dee Dee soon tracked them down via mutual friends. She convinced the man that Gypsy was a minor, though she was actually 19 at the time. According to Gypsy, Dee Dee smashed her computer and physically restrained her to her bed after they returned home. Gypsy has also stated her mother would sometimes hit her and deny her food.

Gypsy eventually managed to get back online. She joined a Christian dating site, where she met Nicholas Godejohn. She told him the truth about her mother’s actions and ended up asking him to kill Dee Dee so they could be together. In June 2015, he came to her house and stabbed Dee Dee while Gypsy waited, ears covered, in the bathroom.

As Gypsy’s medical records documented the abuse she’d been subjected to, her lawyer was able to arrange a plea deal for the charges she faced in Dee Dee’s death; in 2016, Gypsy pled guilty to second-degree murder. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison and served 85 percent of her sentence before being released December 28, 2023. Godejohn was found guilty of first-degree murder in 2018 and was sentenced to life in prison.


Gypsy Rose is now FREE from serving her prison time. She is now married to Ryan Anderson, whom she met while incarcerated. The two seem very happy. They spent New Years with Gypsy father, step mother and siblings. Since being released Gypsy has multiple movies and documentaries coming out! People will get to hear her side of the story!

Gypsy also has a new book being released January 9,2024. Called Released. The book will reveal her experience with Dee-Dee. Life while incarcerated, healing through her traumatic experience and more! Will you be reading?

I know Dee-Dee wasn’t the best mother the best mother to Gypsy Rose but I wonder if she misses her. I wonder if she feels like she should have just spoke up instead of killing her…. She lost her mother and Godejohn lost his life to prison. He will NEVER be free! For a women he thought he was running away with.. what’s your thoughts?
