HBO's documentary Mommy Dead and Dearest shines a light on the stunning story of Gypsy Rose and Dee Dee Blanchard.
Dee Dee suffered from Munchausen by proxy syndrome, a mental illness by which "a caregiver makes up or causes an illness or injury in a person under his or her care." Gypsy, the victim of Dee Dee's condition, allegedly plotted her mother's death over the years, eventually stabbing her with help from her then-boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn.
Where is she now?
Gypsy Rose is currently in prison serving a 10-year sentence for killing her mother. In July 2016, she pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a plea agreement with the prosecutor.
