Gypsy Rose Blanchard spilled the beans about her ex-beau, Nicholas Godejohn, in her latest TV appearance as a free bird. Forget the crime dramas; this interview on Good Morning America had more drama than a catfight at a hair salon.
Gypsy, now 32 and embracing freedom like it’s a long-lost relative, chatted with Deborah Roberts, who was probably expecting a normal morning chat but ended up in a whirlwind of chaos. The interview aired on a Friday, making it the perfect start to anyone’s weekend plans.
When asked if she thought it was “fair” that Nicholas got a one-way ticket to the prison life while she got the express eight-year tour, Gypsy Rose responded with the finesse of a stand-up comedian. “We’ve both got a truckload of regrets,” she quipped. “All I can say is, I did my time, he’s doing his thing, and I wish him well on his little adventure behind bars.”
Their love story reads like a plot from a questionable romance novel – they met on a Christian dating site, had their first date in 2015, and the second one ended with Dee Dee Blanchard meeting her untimely demise. If this were a rom-com, it’d be titled “Love Stabbed Me 17 Times.”
Gypsy, who had a PhD in Munchausen Syndrome by proxy thanks to her dear old mom, handed Nicholas a DIY murder kit – duct tape and a knife – like it was a twisted episode of Martha Stewart’s crafting show. Nicholas then went full-on Michelangelo with the knife, giving Dee Dee 17 stab wounds while Gypsy Rose played hide-and-seek in the bathroom.
Arrested for the murder, Gypsy Rose took a speedy plea deal, trading a 10-year sentence for her room at the Chillicothe Correctional Center in Missouri. Meanwhile, Nicholas faced a lifetime sentence in 2019, currently chilling at the Potosi Correctional Center like it’s a five-star resort.
In a shocking post-conviction interview with ABC’s 20/20, Nicholas claimed he killed Dee Dee because he loved Gypsy Rose and wanted a life with her. Talk about messed-up relationship goals – move over, Romeo and Juliet!
If you think this story couldn’t get any wilder, Lifetime is dropping a documentary, “The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard,” promising more jaw-dropping twists than a gymnast on a caffeine binge. Brace yourself for three nights of Lifetime making your reality seem downright dull.
Gypsy Rose is also releasing a book, “Released: Conversations on the Eve of Freedom,” because nothing says “freedom” like a good chat about duct tape and knife-wielding boyfriends. Mark your calendars for January 9 – it’s the literary event of the year.
So, if you’re tired of mundane love stories, make a date with Gypsy Rose’s wild ride of murder, mayhem, and more drama than your favorite soap opera. It’s the laugh-out-loud tale of a girl, her ex, and a crime that’ll have you questioning your own life choices. Grab the popcorn – this is one show you won’t want to miss!
