Shortly after Gypsy Rose Blanchard was released from prison following an eight-year sentence for the murder of her mother Claudine “Dee Dee” Blanchard, her social media presence blew up. Netizens have become obsessed with her every move and both her current and past relationships have come under the spotlight.

This is, of course, understandable considering that it was Blanchard’s boyfriend at the time that she co-conspired with and who ultimately committed the murder against her mother. However, in this particular instance, it’s Gypsy Rose’s current relationship that people can’t seem to get enough of (and by get enough of, I of course mean troll). It’s the internet, remember?

But before we get into that, let’s first revisit Blanchard’s first love, convicted murderer Nicholas Godejohn.

Who is Nicholas Godejohn?

In 2015, Godejohn and Blanchard conspired to kill Dee Dee after Gypsy Rose revealed the extent of the abuse and manipulation she had suffered at the hands of her mother. The pair had allegedly been communicating for two years before the murder took place after first meeting on a dating site for Christians.

During the homicide trial, several intimate messages between Blanchard and Godejohn were read aloud. According to the Springfield News-Leader, a majority of the texts were about love, sex and planning a life together in rural Wisconsin, but as 10 June 2015, approached, the texting turned to knives and duct tape.

The messages also revealed that the day before the killing, Godejohn texted Gypsy Rose that his “evil side” would need duct tape. Godejohn and Blanchard often referred to each other’s sinister alter egos in the texts. Godejohn’s was simply his “evil side” while Gypsy Rose’s was “Ruby.”

On the day of the murder, Blanchard revealed in court that she and Dee Dee gave each other manicures and then her mother put her to bed. After Dee Dee went to bed, Godejohn came into the house and Gypsy Rose hid in the bathroom while Godejohn stabbed her mother 17 times.

In 2018, Gypsy Rose told the court that two weeks before her mother’s murder, she changed her mind because she “started having doubts [and] second thoughts.” But after the pair got into an argument days later, she decided Dee Dee had to die and told Godejohn to travel from Wisconsin to Missouri to kill her. When asked who talked who into killing Dee Dee, Gypsy Rose responded in court, “I did, I talked him into it.”

Once the murder had taken place, the couple fled to Wisconsin by bus and then on 14 June 2015, Gypsy Rose posted “That Bitch is Dead!” on her mother’s Facebook page. Naturally, this alerted Dee Dee’s relatives and soon, the authorities found the body and subsequently travelled to Godejohn’s home in Wisconsin to arrest the pair.

I think it’s safe to say that once both criminals were convicted, their love slightly dwindled and fell apart. But it wasn’t long before Gypsy Rose found a new partner.

Who is Gypsy Rose’s husband?

Blanchard first connected with now-husband Ryan Anderson in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic after Gypsy Rose received a letter from him in prison.

In an interview with People, Anderson revealed that he was prompted to write the letter after his co-worker told him that she wanted to write to Tiger King star, Joe Exotic.

“I said, ‘I’ll tell you what, if you write him, I’ll write [to] Gypsy Rose Blanchard.’ And I had watched her documentary Mommy Dead and Dearest, like three years before that,” he recalled.

The pair began exchanging emails and were eventually married in 2022 in a small prison ceremony with no guests. Blanchard went on to boast about her husband’s kindness in the interview: “I would say that he is probably the most compassionate soul that I’ve ever met, and the most patient, God knows, he’s so patient with me because I could be a little bit of a lot to handle. I could be a handful, an emotional handful.”

But, as is so often the case with couples in the limelight, it seems as though some trolls had a lot to say about Anderson’s appearance. Underneath a selfie on his Instagram, a number of netizens had commented mean statements about Anderson being a “creep” and saying he looked like Peter Griffin from Family Guy.

Shortly after, Gypsy Rose came to her husband’s defence and went to serious lengths to emphasise her love and adoration for her man: “Ryan, don’t listen to the haters. I love you, and you love me. We do not owe anyone anything. Our family is who matters. If you get likes and good comments great, if you get hate then whatever because they don’t matter. I love you. Besides they are jealous because you are rocking my world every night… yeah, I said it, the D is fire. Happy wife happy life.”
