          Gypsy Rose Blanchard On Being Abused By Her Mom: ‘I Just Don’t Understand How Somebody Could Do This To Their Child’

          VIDEO

          November 22, 2017

          Gypsy Rose Blanchard is currently serving 10 years in a Missouri prison for her role in the June 2015 stabbing death of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard. Gypsy says she had been isolated and abused by Dee Dee for nearly a quarter century before the murder.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: I’m living a nightmare!

          Dee Dee, who experts determined suffered from Munchausen syndrome by proxy, kept her daughter confined to a wheelchair, convincing everyone that Gypsy was intellectually delayed, physically disabled and chronically ill. She also persuaded medical professionals to prescribe medications Gypsy didn’t need, test her for diseases she didn’t have, and perform numerous unnecessary surgeries. “I just don’t understand how somebody could do this to their child,” says the 26-year-old.

          At 19, Gypsy says she discovered critical information about herself that forced her to question everything her mother had ever told her. She says she created a secret social media account to communicate with others. Eventually, says Gypsy, she met Nicholas Godejohn, through an online dating site and began what would become a three-year relationship.

          In part one of a two-part daytime exclusive, Gypsy tells Dr. Phil that she and Nicholas met in person for the first time in a local movie theatre in Springfield, Missouri; the town where she and her mother lived. She claims it was then she first began to contemplate killing her mother.

          Does Gypsy say she has remorse for her role in the murder? Watch the video above for a recap of Tuesday’s episode, then tune in for the conclusion airing Wednesday.
