Gypsy’s Revenge is an upcoming two-hour documentary exploring the bizarre medical murder mystery of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard.

Due to carefully constructed videos and photos illustrating divorced mom Dee Dee’s constant devotion as a selfless caregiver to her chronically ill and wheelchair-bound daughter, the heartwarming duo became publicly celebrated as the seeming embodiment of the resilience of the human spirit. They were awarded a house through Habitat for Humanity after Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana, and bestowed vacations through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Young Gypsy’s constant good cheer was a testament to the love between the two and the trust she had in her mother’s ability to navigate her through her horrific health problems. Or so it seemed …

Friends and followers were shocked when a post appeared on Gypsy and Dee Dee’s shared Facebook page reading, “That bitch is dead.” What could that mean? Who posted it? If Dee Dee is really dead, what would that mean for her dependent daughter?

But that post came to be the one truth among a lifetime of lies when an able-bodied Gypsy Rose was found in Wisconsin with her secret boyfriend, Nicolas Godejohn, revealing an extraordinary case of psychological torture and extreme child abuse.

Gypsy’s Revenge features interviews with key players — friends, family, and medical professionals – reexamining the murder years later.
