Gypsy Rose Blanchard has said that she will 'speak her truth' in a new docuseries being released soon.

Blanchard was jailed for her role in the murder of her mother in 2015. Her boyfriend at the time stabbed her mother to death after the pair had planned the act together.

The 32-year-old stunned the court when she walked into the courtroom unassisted after everyone believed that she had been wheelchair-bound.

But this was all an elaborate fabrication by her mother Dee Dee, who had convinced friends and family that Blanchard was in fact a terminally ill teenager.

Blanchard is now set to be released from jail in December 2023 on parole after being sentenced in 2016 when she pleaded guilty to her role in Dee Dee's death.

Her story had been covered in a documentary in 2018 previously, but now a new series will shine a light on additional parts of the story.

She said: "After a lifetime of silence, I finally get to use my voice to share my story and speak my truth.”

She added: "As a survivor of relentless child abuse, this docuseries chronicles my quest for liberation and journey through self-discovery,” she says. “I am unapologetically myself and unafraid to expose the hidden parts of my life that have never been revealed until now.”

Gypsy's boyfriend at the time, Nick Godejohn, was the one who actually carried out the act of killing her mother, for which he received a life sentence.

He said: “From the very beginning, I just knew we were soulmates. Those five days when I was actually with her, physically with her, those five days were the most intense, and magical, and awe-inspiring days I’ve ever had.”

The pair had met online before finally meeting in person. They have since separated.

Asked if he had any regrets about his actions, Godejohn said: "I would’ve done it again. I might have done it differently but I would’ve done it again. I couldn’t see [Gypsy Rose] suffer anymore."

The new documentary will see the next stage of Gypsy's life since she was sentenced to ten years in jail.

This will include her prison wedding to her husband Ryan.

The Lifetime docuseries is called The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard. It is set to run for six hours, and will begin on 5 January, 2024.
