Unpacking It All: Gypsy Rose Blanchard Gets Candid in New Tell-All Documentary

NOTE: This article is 5 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard, central figure in one of America’s most shocking true crime cases, is now telling the full story in her own words. A new Lifetime documentary series entitled “Prison Confessions” compiles over 18 months worth of intimate interviews with Blanchard as she opens up on aspects of her life she has never shared publicly prior.

Sitting down with The Hollywood Reporter just days after her recent parole release, Blanchard explains she finally feels “emotionally ready” to discuss details beyond just her notoriously toxic relationship with mother, Dee Dee. Viewers may be surprised by some of her forthright admissions around manipulations she herself has perpetrated in the past.

Serving 85% of a 10-year sentence for her role in her mother’s murder, Blanchard also pulls back the curtain on her time behind bars. Among her revelations are the origins of her marriage to Ryan Anderson, a man she met and wed while incarcerated. “I definitely had to kind of go peeking through his closet and putting my clothes on the shelf and integrating myself into his life now,” Blanchard tells THR.

While not absolving herself of responsibility, she expresses deep regret over choices leading to her imprisonment, believing intervention could have prevented the tragic outcome. Her advice to others suffering similar abuse is to reach out for support because there are always people willing to help.

As for her own healing journey, Blanchard credits prison with giving her the maturity she was denied for so many developmental years. “I’m the type of person that, I will make a mistake, learn from it and move on,” she says, signaling personal growth since first entering jail as a “people pleaser” still controlled by her past.

While newfound freedom offers excitement, Blanchard prefers to take each day as it comes. She remains open to any opportunities aligning with her goals of advocating for abuse victims, but tabloid fame does not beckon. “Right now I’m just trying to take it day by day, just trying to be really present in the moment,” she tells THR.

Presently focused on settling into her new married life back in Louisiana, reconnecting with family, and processing revelations about her mother that she is still only recently learning, Gypsy Rose continues piecing together fragmented truths to better understand the traumatic shaping of her life. By offering unprecedented access through this documentary, she aims to reclaim her narrative and speak her truth after decades of public speculation.
