          ‘It Was A Mix Of Emotions,’ Says Gypsy Rose Blanchard Regarding Her Mother’s Murder


          November 22, 2017

          Gypsy Rose Blanchard claims that she and her boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, carried out a plan to murder her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, in June 2015. She says they left Dee Dee’s body in her Springfield Missouri home, and took a cab to a nearby hotel.

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

          The pair, who traveled together to Wisconsin in the days after the murder, were arrested and charged with Dee Dee Blanchard’s death. Gypsy later pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree murder and is currently serving a 10-year sentence in a Missouri prison. Nicholas Godejohn, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder. His trial is set for December 2017.

          Gypsy, as investigators would later determine, had been the object of systematic abuse at the hands of Dee Dee for most of her 24 years. Dee Dee, say experts, suffered from Munchausen syndrome by proxy; a disorder in which the afflicted individual (usually a parent or caretaker) seeks attention for themselves by repeatedly fabricating or creating illness or injury to someone in their care (usually a child). Gypsy, it’s reported, had been subjected to scores of unneeded medications, and upward of 30 unnecessary surgeries from the time she was an infant.

          In the conclusion of a two-part daytime exclusive airing Wednesday, Dr. Phil asks Gypsy about her emotional state following Dee Dee’s murder. “As soon as this is over, are you immediately wishing it hadn’t happened or are you happy it happened?”

          “It was a mix of emotions,” she responds. “To be honest, I felt numb. It’s like it wasn’t real.”

          How does Gypsy respond when Dr. Phil shows her a home video of herself and Nicholas Godejohn that the couple reportedly recorded fewer than 24 hours after Dee Dee Blanchard’s murder?
