Gypsy Rose Blanchard REGRETS Murdering Her Mother Upon Her Release from Prison
Gypsy Rose Blanchard has recently shared her thoughts on the 2015 murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, as she approaches her release from prison. Reflecting on the incident, Gypsy Rose expressed that while Dee Dee might not have “deserved it,” her actions were criminal.
“She was a sick woman and unfortunately I wasn’t educated enough to see that,” Blanchard, now 32, told People in a recent interview. She added, “She deserved to be where I am, sitting in prison doing time for criminal behavior.”
Set for release on December 28 after eight years in prison, Blanchard pondered how she might have handled the situation differently.
“I don’t know if I would go back to when I was a child and tell my aunts and uncles that I’m not sick and mommy makes me sick,” she shared with People. “Or if I would travel back to just the point of that conversation with Nick [Godejohn] and tell him, ‘You know what, I’m going to go tell the police everything.’ I kind of struggle with that.”
Despite her reflections, she firmly stated, “Nobody will ever hear me say I’m glad she’s dead or I’m proud of what I did. I regret it every single day.”
Blanchard’s story, which was covered in the 2017 HBO documentary “Mommy Dead and Dearest” and the 2019 Hulu show “The Act,” led to her guilty plea for her mother’s murder in July 2016 and a subsequent 10-year prison sentence. She was granted parole in September, completing 85 percent of her sentence.
Her then-boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, who was involved in the killing, was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole plus 25 years in February 2019.
The crime revealed that Dee Dee Blanchard had been fabricating her daughter’s medical conditions, a case of Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome. Gypsy recalled how her mother attempted to force another unnecessary medical procedure on her, leading to the events of the murder.
Reflecting on her mother’s actions, Gypsy Rose said, “It’s a journey. I’m still really trying to come to a place of forgiveness for her, for myself and the situation.” Despite everything, she maintains love for her mother, trying to understand her actions as something possibly beyond her control.
Following her release, Gypsy Rose Blanchard is set to share her story in the Lifetime docuseries “The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard,” premiering on January 5, 2024.
Upon her release from prison, Gypsy Rose Blanchard has set a significant goal for herself – she hopes to meet Taylor Swift, and she believes she knows the perfect opportunity to make this happen.
Gypsy Rose, who is concluding her 10-year sentence for the second-degree murder of her mother, Dee Dee, expressed her hopes to TMZ about her “Wildest Dreams” coming true. She and her husband, Ryan, have acquired tickets to the Kansas City Chiefs game on December 31.
With her release date set for December 28, Gypsy is eagerly anticipating the possibility of encountering her idol at Arrowhead Stadium.
Gypsy acknowledged the chance that Taylor Swift might not be present to support her boyfriend Travis Kelce at the game, has formulated a backup plan. She intends to purchase tickets for Taylor Swift’s concert in New Orleans, scheduled for October 2024.
Gypsy is evidently resolute in her desire to meet the celebrated singer, whom she admiringly refers to as a “kick-ass chick.” She credits Taylor Swift with teaching her about the essence of girl power.
