5 Gypsy Rose Blanchard Films And Documentaries To View

Gypsy Rose Blanchard has been utilizing her initial days of freedom to rapidly gain momentum as a social media sensation.

However, how did she reach this point?

After being granted parole while serving a 10-year sentence for her involvement in a conspiracy to eliminate her mother Claudine “Dee Dee” Blanchard, Blanchard was released from jail in December. She spent eight years behind bars.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard is believed to be a victim of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a psychological condition in which a caregiver deliberately induces illness in someone. In 2015, Blanchard’s then-boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn killed her mother while she concealed herself in another room.

Godejohn was sentenced to life in prison without parole, and now Blanchard is a free woman. Here’s what to watch to delve deeper into Blanchard’s life story, a subject that has been the focus of multiple TV programs and documentaries.
