The Most Shocking Bombshells Revealed in ‘The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard’ Documentary Series
Gypsy Rose Blanchard is ready to tell her story after being released from prison, last month. Blanchard was released on December 28, after serving nearly eight years of a ten year sentence for her role in the murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard.
Blanchard suffered years of abuse at the hands of her mother, who reportedly suffered from mental disorder, Munchausen syndrome by proxy. She manipulated doctors into believing that her daughter had leukemia and muscular dystrophy, and fabricated numerous other medical issues.
Blanchard will tell all about her mother, her 2015 murder and her subsequent life in prison in Lifetime documentary, The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard.
One of the most shocking claims involved Blanchard’s grandfather, Claude Pitre, and his wife, Laura. The 32-year-old claimed that Claude “sexually abused” her on multiple occasions while she and her mother were living with the couple.
“He would perform sexual acts on me,” Blanchard claimed. “He would make me touch him. He would touch me. At 9, I don’t think that I knew that was wrong. But then my grandfather told me not to tell anyone.”
Blanchard noted that she believed that it would be “therapeutic” to come forward with the allegations.
Pitre denied Blanchard’s claims and responded with his own accusations.
“She was the one that was trying to touch me, and I’d say no, don’t do that,” Pitre claimed in the documentary. “She started doing that when she was about 4 years old.”
Blanchard responded — “There is no part of me that questions if this happened or not. This 100 percent happened. He can take it to his grave if he wants, but the one person who’s not going to visit him at his grave is me.”
Blanchard also addressed a past struggle with drug addiction, sharing that she first experienced a pain pill dependency at the age of 16. She added that she used drugs to cope during her early years behind bars.
She clarified that she was currently sober, commenting — “I’m not that person anymore.”
Blanchard revealed that she ran away from home to connect with a man named Dan, whom she met online, when she was a teenager. She made the decision after discovering, via a Medicaid card, that she was 19-years-old, not 15 as she had been told by her mother. She soon learned that Dan was unable to leave the state because he was on parole. Dee Dee tracked her down and convinced her that she could see Dan again, but Blanchard claimed that her mother chained her to a bed with handcuffs and a leash with inadequate food for two weeks after the incident.
Blanchard spoke about a second runaway attempt and a subsequent blowout fight that unfolded after Dee Dee discovered her suitcase. She explained that she retaliated by firing shots from her mother’s gun.
“The wounds were superficial,” she said. “It barely grazed her. That’s when I realized it was a BB gun.”
Blanchard revealed that she sent her then-boyfriend, Nick Godejohn, a video of her mother’s bedroom as they plotted her murder.
“I made the stabbing motion [on her bed] because I was high all the time on pain pills,” she said. “The side effects of those create this disconnection to reality.”
Blanchard admitted that she wished that she hadn’t asked Godejohn to murder her mother.
“I’d do anything to just go back to that moment in time,” she said. “There was still a point that she didn’t have to die and I wish I could have stopped it.”
“To this day, I can’t get that out of my head,” she revealed. “And I want to help her but I don’t. I just sit there. I don’t do anything. I just sit there and then I hear her screaming again. Then there was one sharp scream and then it was over.”
Fans will see Blanchard alongside her current husband, Ryan Scott Anderson. The couple explained that they connected in person after writing letters back and forth for 14 months. Anderson proposed during his third visit to the prison. Blanchard shared that she almost asked for a separation two months after their July 2022 wedding, as the two were fighting over her communication with an ex-boyfriend. The pair ultimately sought out therapy and remained together.
