                   Gypsy Rose Blanchard was released from prison on December 28th, 2023. After serving eight years in prison for second degree murder of her mother Clauddine Blanchard, she is finally released three years early. Gypsy is a victim of her mother’s mental illness, Munchausen by Proxy. This illness caused Gypsy’s mother, Clauddine, to emotionally and physically abuse Gypsy by pretending she had extreme medical issues when in reality, she was healthy. Clauddine faked medical records along with Gypsy’s symptoms causing Gypsy to undergo many invasive procedures that were not necessary. She was restricted to a wheelchair and had her head shaved when really, she could walk and grow hair normally. The only way Gypsy could see out of this situation was to be rid of her mother.  

                  The Act, a Hulu original, divulges into the details of Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s alarming upbringing. The story unfolds and exposes Gypsy’s slow realization of the extent of her mother’s Munchausen’s disease and reveals her life before she went behind bars. After gaining the attention of the media and Gypsy Rose herself, she shares that Hulu did not get her consent to create the series and most of the gory details are carefully fabricated lies. With the inspiration of sharing her story and creating awareness, she has come forward with a new television show called “The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose”, where she recounts the painful memories of her past.  

                 Since her release, Gypsy has been in the public eye, with many interviews, release parties, and support on social media. Photos of her buying shoes an hour after being released were quickly posted like clockwork. She now has millions of followers on TikTok and Instagram with people following her every move. 

                After enduring a painful life and imprisonment, Gypsy is celebrating lavishly with her family and friends and shares her plans during interviews. She recently released her very own book, where people can read all about the truth behind her life and unfortunate obstacles she was forced to overcome.
