Gypsy Rose Blanchard and Ryan Anderson argue over her ex Ken Urker in new trailer for Lifetime series

She wasn’t living her best life.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard admits how unhappy she was while married to Ryan Anderson as they fight over her ex Ken Urker in the trailer for the upcoming Lifetime docuseries, “Gypsy Rose: Life After Lockup.”

The preview, which was released Tuesday, begins with the 32-year-old Munchausen syndrome by proxy victim asking Anderson if he’s happy.

“I’m very happy,” Anderson replies, to which she immediately confesses, “I just think that I would be happier somewhere else.”

“Go call Ken,” Anderson sarcastically responds. “You’re probably already talking to him anyway.”

Urker, 31, and Blanchard met while she was serving time for the second-degree murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard. He had written her a “letter of support” after seeing the HBO documentary “Mommy Dead and Dearest.”

The pair formed a deep bond and eventually got engaged in October 2018. However, they broke up at some point in 2019.

Anderson, a former special education teacher, also wrote to Gypsy while she was locked up. They, too, felt a connection and became engaged.

They got married in July 2022 in a private ceremony at the Chillicothe Correctional Center in Missouri, and he was there to retrieve Gypsy from prison when she was released early in December 2023.

As the pair learned how to live life as a newly married couple and Gypsy experienced adult life outside prison bars for the fist time, Ken seemingly became an instant nuisance to Anderson and even Gypsy’s father, Rod Blanchard.

“He’s trying to weasel his way back in because now Gypsy’s out of prison,” Rod claims at one point in the trailer. Earlier this year, he also expressed his doubts about his daughter’s marriage with Anderson.

At another spot in the video, Anderson can be seen asking Gypsy who texted her, which seemingly turns into a yelling match later on in the day.

“I don’t want to be controlled,” she vents. “You’re mad at me because I confided in someone.” She also warns her then-husband that she may potentially want a divorce.

Gypsy filed for divorce from Anderson in April, just about a week after she announced their separation on a private Facebook account. She also filed for a restraining order against him.

By the time she filed for divorce, the ex-con had reconciliation rumors flying after she was photographed holding hands with Urker as they ran errands and after they got matching Husky tattoos.

She confirmed their relationship at the end of April by sharing an image of them locking lips at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

He later told the Daily Mail that he was not handling their split well. Lifetime

In May, the star confirmed Urker was moving to Louisiana to be closer to her.

She even told Entertainment Tonight she feels he is her “soulmate.”

“But I don’t want to move too fast because, you know, I want to pace myself,” she noted. “I don’t want to put expectations and make things too heavy.”

Blanchard has since called Urker her “soulmate.”

She also confirmed that he was moving to Louisiana to be with her.

“We’re just basically enjoying our time together and, you know, hopeful for what the future has.”

Anderson, meanwhile, told the Daily Mail he is “not doing well” amid their split.

Speaking of her connectin with Urker, he added, “For me it just came out of the blue. I had no idea she still had such strong feelings for him.”

“Gypsy Rose: Life After Lockup” will debut on Lifetime on June 3 at 9 p.m. ET.
