“Finally Free:” Gypsy Rose Blanchard was busy the first week after release

“Finally Free:” Gypsy Rose Blanchard was busy the first week after release

(NewsNation) – Gypsy Rose Blanchard, who was released from a Missouri prison last week after serving eight years, shared a message with her supporters on social media.

“I am finally free,” she said in a video posted over the weekend. On TikTok and Instagram.

Blanchard, 32, has spent the better part of the past decade in prison after admitting in court that she asked her ex-boyfriend Nicolas Godejohn to kill her mother, Claudine “Dee Dee” Blanchard, who experts say likely suffered from… Munchausen syndrome by proxy. Godejohn was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted for his role in Dee Dee Blanchard's death.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard said years of physical and psychological abuse drove her to commit the crime in 2015.

Throughout Gypsy Rose Blanchard's childhood, her mother fabricated symptoms and subjected her to false diagnoses and medical treatments for conditions including leukemia and muscular dystrophy. She was forced to use a wheelchair and a feeding tube, even though she didn't need either.

Since her release days after Christmas, Blanchard has been busy posting about her new life. After marrying Ryan Scott Anderson, a special education graduate from Louisiana, while still in prison, Blanchard is now using her married name on her new social media accounts. Recently, she has been celebrating her freedom with her family and new husband by going shopping, spending days at the spa and partying at housewarming parties.

“It's nice to be home,” Blanchard said in her video. “I'm back home in Louisiana, on a beautiful day out, and I have a lot of great things coming up really soon.”

This “great stuff” includes a new Lifetime documentary series called ““Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard” Scheduled to air on January 5, the A.J New e-book.

“It's not a rehash of everything that happened,” Blanchard said of the book. “It's more of a reflection of everything I've learned. Thank you guys for all the support and continuing to watch.”
