Trigger warning: This article contains gruesome details of murder and violence that may be triggering for some readers.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard wants to give back. The Lifetime star, who was a victim of Munchausen syndrome by proxy and was later convicted of second-degree murder of her mother, revealed that she is willing to partner with the nonprofit Make-A-Wish Foundation for a reason.

Blanchard opened up about her life and future goals in a new Q&A video she shared on social media. She talked about her experience so far with Make-A-Wish’s efforts for children and revealed why she wanted to partner with them.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard wants to pay back Make-A-Wish

Gypsy Rose Blanchard, 32, took a moment to answer all of her fans’ questions in a new Q&A video on YouTube on Thursday, June 27. During the session, the former inmate explained that she wanted to give back to the Make-A-Wish Foundation because her late mother, Claudine “Dee Dee” Blanchard, benefited from the organization’s good work.

“What my mom did wasn’t fair to those kids. She granted me a wish and pretended I was a sick kid so my mom could get us a free trip to Disney,” Blanchard admitted during the Q&A. So she reflected on her experience and wanted to honor her efforts with a small donation.

Dee Dee suffered from a rare mental disorder called Munchausen syndrome by proxy, in which a parent tries to gain attention and sympathy by portraying their child as a terminally ill patient with fictitious illnesses.

Consequently, at age 10, Blanchard and her mother earned a free trip to Disneyland after the latter convinced Make-A-Wish of Blanchard’s fake health problems.

However, the reality star was discouraged and wanted to make things right with the organization. “Donating to Make-A-Wish made me feel like I was giving a child back their wish, giving back what was taken from them,” she added.

After spending eight years in prison for plotting her mother’s murder, Blanchard hopes to pursue a new path for herself upon her release in late 2023. Her newfound freedom also fills her with a passion for prison reform and raising awareness of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.

The Lifetime star recently made an appearance with the Kardashians after Kim contacted her to discuss their shared goal of prison reform.

Additionally, Blanchard is the subject of Lifetime’s new reality series “Gypsy Rose: Life After Lock Up,” which premiered on June 3, 2024. The feature is a sequel to “The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard,” which was released earlier this year.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard is officially back together with her ex-fiancé

Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s life is taking a new direction after prison. Shortly after her divorce from ex-husband Ryan Anderson, whom she married in prison, the social media influencer has rekindled her romance with ex-fiancé Ken Urker, according to TMZ.

The couple were photographed showing their affection and showing their feelings for each other at a jazz festival in New Orleans in April. Gypsy Rose told TMZ: “We have a history together that laid the perfect foundation for a fresh start.” She also claimed that life is too short to not take a chance and is excited about her future with her ex-fiancé and now boyfriend Urker.
