My friend texted me last night about a new sick and twisted documentary film that’s going to air on HBO in May. My group of friends and I are totally into the crime documentaries and we watch a lot of Dateline so I had to investigate immediately. I went to the website, www.MommyDeadAndDearest.Com and I was shocked at what I saw, read and that I had never heard about this before. There are probably so many crazy murder stories all over the world we never hear about, this is the perfect example. What you don’t realize from the trailer that becomes apparent in the “About The Film” section of the website is that Gypsy was able to walk and she is in prison right now.
“Things are not always as they appear, especially in the case of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard. Child Abuse, mental illness, and forbidden love converge in this mystery involving a mother and daughter who were thought to be living a fairy tale life that turned out to be a living nightmare.”
