Following her separation from Ryan Anderson, the ex-convict recalled what it was like towards the end of their relationship.

“I think that there is a sense of freedom of following your heart, following what you feel like is right for you,” she told People Magazine. “In my marriage, I felt like a part of me was lost in it, and so I feel like I found that missing piece of myself that I always felt was lost and now reclaiming that back. I definitely feel a sense of belonging in that space.”

Rumors circulated that Ryan was "controlling" and Gypsy felt smothered, which some fans say they see being portrayed in the Lifetime docuseries.

“It’s heartbreaking because no one gets married to get a divorce,” Gypsy said. “Processing those emotions has been hard.”

"Gypsy Rose: Life After Lock Up" airs on Lifetime every Monday.
