Kristy Says Ken Urker Was Gypsy’s First True Love

It didn’t take Gypsy Rose Blanchard very long to talk about Ken Urker in the new Lifetime series. She brought up her then-ex-fiance several times in the first few episodes of Life After Lockup. By episode four, viewers saw that Gypsy’s stepmom Kristy was working behind the scenes to get Ken and Gypsy back together.

Apparently, Kristy stayed in contact with Ken following his breakup with Gypsy. In the series, it was revealed that he had been texting Kristy since Gypsy was released from prison.

Ken Urker opened up to Kristy about the real reason he decided to call things off with Gypsy. According to him, there were multiple people in his life telling him to let Gypsy Rose find herself before they started a relationship. Of course, Ken said he would have never broken up with her if he knew she’d just go on to get engaged to someone else.

Kristy first told Gypsy Rose about her conversation with Ken while Ryan Anderson was at work. She didn’t know how to take the news because Gypsy felt like if she wasn’t married to Ryan she’d been with Ken in a heartbeat.

“Gypsy’s first true relationship was Ken,” Kristy told the cameras. “Where she experienced struggles, and experienced laughter, and experienced heartache.”

Gypsy Rose Has A Deep Bond With Ken

Gypsy Rose Blanchard and Ken Urker were together while she served her prison sentence. Ken wrote to her after he watched Mommy Dead & Dearest on HBO.

Their relationship lasted about two years before Ken ended things. At first, Kristy said she initially thought that he couldn’t take the publicity of being with Gypsy. People eventually found out who he was and started trying to contact him and his family.

“I would have give anything to that man. I would have bought the sun and the moon and the stars and give it to him on a platter. That hurts me that I loved him that much,” Gypsy said in an interview. She also said that she feels like no one could ever love her as much as Ken did.

That said, she acknowledges a certain amount of commitment to her husband, Ryan Anderson, but she admits to still thinking about Ken frequently. It is clear in Gypsy Rose: Life After Lockup that the ex-con isn’t that into her hubby Ryan. As we know, they don’t wind up staying together in the end.

Gypsy Rose: Life After Lockup airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
