Gypsy Rose Blanchard Spotted for the First Time After Prison Release
Blanchard, released from prison after serving eight years for the second-degree murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, was recently spotted leaving a Chillicothe, Missouri hotel with her husband, Ryan Scott Anderson. The couple was photographed carrying bags of snacks and essentials, with Blanchard also seen rolling out luggage. This marks the first sighting of Blanchard since her release from the Chillicothe Correctional Center at 3:30 a.m. local time.
Her parole, granted after serving 85 percent of her original sentence, was confirmed by Karen Pojmann, a spokesperson for the Missouri Department of Corrections. Blanchard expressed regret for conspiring with her then-boyfriend, Nicholas “Nick” Godejohn, to kill her mother, who had inflicted years of abuse on her due to Munchausen by proxy.
Blanchard’s release coincides with the premiere of the Lifetime docuseries, “The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard,” scheduled for January 5. Her compelling story was previously depicted in the 2019 Hulu series, “The Act,” and the 2017 HBO documentary, “Mommy Dead and Dearest.”
