Gypsy Rose Blanchard went for new shoe shopping at Liberty mall as her husband, Ryan Scott Anderson bought paparazzi.. Blanchard, 32, is set to be released from prison, where she was serving a sentence for her involvement in her mother’s murder by then-boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn in 2015. She was jailed for 10 years in 2016 after pleading guilty to second-degree murder of Clauddine “Dee Dee” Blanchard.
She will leave Missouri’s Chillicothe Correctional Center on Thursday after serving eight years of that sentence. Godejohn is still in prison, serving a life sentence for first-degree murder.
The Netflix show Tiger King was popular then, and his co-worker told him she wanted to write a letter to the Tiger King subject Joseph “Joe Exotic” Maldonado-Passage. He told her that if she wrote him, he would write Blanchard.
“I said, ‘I’ll tell you what, if you write him, I’ll write Gypsy Rose Blanchard.’ And I had watched her documentary Mommy Dead and Dearest, like three years before that,” he said. “And then The Act had came out and I’ve never watched The Act, but I remember my friends talking about The Act and I was like, I’ll watch the documentary again. So it was kind of fresh on my mind.”
Anderson and Blanchard first connected in 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic started. Anderson was working at a hospital at the time, and his clientele dropped from around 300 to 12 patients, he said.
Per Blanchard and Anderson’s marriage license, Anderson is from Lake Charles, Louisiana, where he works as a middle school special education teacher. Following her time in prison, Blanchard planned to move to Louisiana, and Anderson joked that was one of the first reasons she decided to speak to him initially.
“She’s like, that was probably the main reason is you were from Louisiana and I wanted to make friends with people from Louisiana,” he told PEOPLE. “So I credit that as being the most important thing is that I was just from Louisiana.”
