    I get where gypsy's coming from where she killed her mother,but she didn't have to really do that. You can be mad at your mother and never talk to her again but don't have to kill her,but I get where she's coming from. It wasn't right for her to go to jail, especially all the abuse she was getting and now she's even more trapped. She needs to get bailed out and go to a mental hospital.

    Man, the actor for Nick in The Act really got his every little quirk down pat, looking back on his police interview. And Joey King really captured Gypsy's spirit... Don't even get me started on Patricia Arquette... I barely recognized her. She didn't look a thing like herself until the flashback scenes in the 90s. Everyone was just brilliantly cast. The show has its fair share of issues, and the real-life people it was based on have some legitimate gripes with it (primarily the writing), but the casting was goddamn FLAWLESS.

    I wish so badly that she would have just turned her mother in instead of killing her. She lost more of her life than she should have.

      The mother had all these medical papers on her claiming she had the mental age of a child. She didn't believe anyone would believe her or listen to her since her mother could always "prove" that she didn't know what she was talking about. I'm not sure if it was the police or social services that were called, but there was an instant where an anonymous person had called in and told authorities they thought Gypsy wasn't really sick. Either police or social services came to Gypsy's home to do a checkup, spoke with her mum, spoke to Gypsy, and left with the note that Gypsy was "mentally challenged". I guess after that she didn't believe anyone else could reach her

    Not so certain Gypsy Rose deserves jail time... she was being abused and was not in her “right” frame of mind

  • KenzieAndPip

    I don’t believe she deserved prison time but truly the saddest part is that Gypsy has said herself that she feels more free in prison than she ever did with her mother.

    So Casey Anthony can murder her daughter, leave her body in the trunk of her car, and get away with it... but when a 19 year old girl kills her mother to escape years of mental and physical abuse and manipulation she gets a 10 year prison sentence? SMFH

  • Hollie Dixon

    I’m not totally justifying what Gypsy did to her mom but what she went through with her is worse than any prison sentence. DeeDee has claimed that Gypsy would love past the age of 18 but only gypsy’s father knew her true age as DeeDee told everyone she was 4 years younger than she actually was. I dread to think what she may have done when Gypsy reaches what everyone else believed to be her 18th birthday?! Would she have killed her in some way for more attention or would she have claimed it to be a miracle and carried on getting more money and support from others? She could have actually killed her just by giving her all those medications she didn’t even need!!?

    IMO 10 years is way too long although Gypsy has admitted she is happier in prison than she ever was with her mom. She’s learning to do her hair and make up and making friends and she recently got engaged to an unnamed man she met through the prison pen pal scheme. There is actually a petition for you to sign to try and get her sentence reduced. She was physically and mentally tortured by DeeDee and she finally snapped and I can’t say I blame her for that just maybe she should have left completely xxx

    I dont condone murder at all. But I can see why Gypsy snapped. She was basically poisoned her whole life with false medication , was lead to believe she was much younger than she was. a mental facility to get her mind back to that of a normal human being...yes.

Like she could just plan a run away ..if she walked into a police station and told them they would have known and make a medical check on her .. but she choose to kill her mom and her boy friend is proud of what he did by putting in on face book 🤔

      Well you dont really know how it feels being trapped for ur whole life, being lied to and abused. Also gypsy was afraid of both her and her mother going to jail at the time for fraud. Her mother had brainwashed her. So you cant judge

    Has anyone stopped to think what would have happened to Gypsy is she never arranged to kill her mother? For years, her mother told people that her "medical problems" would kill her before she was an adult. Dee Dee would of eventually had to of killed Gypsy to keep the charade up. She had already killed her own Mother... It was either Gypsy or Dee Dee. I do not blame that poor little girl for anything. I'm glad she's finally out of her mother's control.

    I don’t feel sorry for Dee Dee at all.

    The only person who I truly feel sorry for is Gypsy because she has never been her own free person.
    I wish Gypsy had the kind of boyfriend that just would have exposed her mother to the world and took Gypsy out of that situation without killing her.

  • Emma Feller
    Emma Feller Month ago

    In Gypsy's situation, one where the authority figures around her believed that she had a mental disability that caused her to make up stories of her mother's abusive behavior, I believe that if no other solution arose I also would have practiced self-defence.

    Gypsy needs to be released from Prison, yes she helped murder her mother. But her mother was a sick, sick woman. Gypsy needs to be in an institution but not prison.

    I came to check out this story after watching The Act series on Hulu. I'm all caught up with it now and can't wait for future episodes. While this whole situation is beyond wrong I do sympathize with Gypsy. Too bad someone couldn't have done something sooner and got mental help for both Gypsi and her mother. So that gypsi didn't feel like in order to be free of her mother she had to have her killed.

    Honestly I will say this, the whole case for Gypsy rose was a fail. This poor girl was failed by everyone who was involved. She wanted out of this hell she wanted to be free from the pain that her mom gave her for no damn reason !!!!! Her mom is in special place called hell I’m glad this women is gone I just wish Gypsy didn’t have to pay for it..... I understand murder wrong and it is but honestly though what would have happened to Gypsy if her mom was still alive ? This poor girl may have died from all this unnecessary stuff that was done to her if it had continued. Then this whole situation would have been worse And i feel this poor girl shouldn’t have had to pay so much for all this. they should have put her in hospital and mental place for a while to see how that had went. This whole case was just disaster and I feel sorry for this poor young girl .😭😭😭😭

    Her mother, Shame on her. To make a healthy young women go through all those surgeries and such is terrible.
    Honestly, if I were in that situation, all of that rage and resentment towards my mom, I’d probably kill my mom too. I think for her, it seemed like her only way out.

    I will never consider murder right, but I can absolutely see why she did this. That her whole life of abuse, and she for sure had no others outlets that she knew of. Anger is a secondary emotion.
