Infamous abuse victim and killer Gypsy Rose Blanchard set for early release from Missouri prison.

Blanchard made a solo red carpet appearance at Lifetime's For Your Consideration event in Los Angeles, looking stunning in a black shirt underneath a red blazer and matching shorts. Like the passionate color she rocked, she had love on her mind.

"Unfortunately, tonight's not date night. He lives in Dallas, and I live in Louisiana," she said about her new beau's absence before sharing that the long distance will no longer hinder their blossoming relationship.

Although Blanchard's primary focus was her new man, Urker, she did acknowledge the end of her chapter with her estranged husband. She didn't address Anderson by name but referenced their ongoing divorce, saying:

"You know, I know that I'm going through a difficult time right now, and so I just really am doing the best I can with moving forward with my life."

As for what the future holds for her rekindled relationship, Blanchard implied that she and Urker are endgame. However, having a solid bond didn't mean she wanted to rush down the aisle anytime soon.

"I've always said Ken was my soulmate. But I don't want to move too fast because, you know, I want to pace myself," the former convict explained, adding: "I don't want to put expectations and make things too heavy."

Blanchard's update about her relationship with Urker comes at the heels of The Blast's report about the pair's steamy PDA session. The TV personality broke the news herself, sharing pictures of them kissing alongside the statement:

"After reconnecting earlier this month, we realized that our love for each other is undeniable, and life is too short to not take a chance."

The rekindled couple became connected while the former convict was serving time for the second-degree murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard. Urker became interested in her after watching the 2017 HBO documentary "Mommy Dead & Dearest."

The duo hit things off and eventually got engaged in 2019; however, Urker reportedly pulled the plug on their trip down the aisle. Blanchard went on to have a relationship with her estranged husband, Anderson, and they got married while she was still behind bars.

But their marriage came crashing down just three months after Blanchard was released from prison in January 2024. Amid her separation from Anderson, she reconnected with Urker as friends before rekindling their now-blossoming romance.
