Debunking ‘The Act’ — Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s Family Tells the True Story of Episode 7

When you’re watching something that’s “based on a true story,” well, you probably think you’re getting the true story. But Gypsy Rose Blanchard‘s family says that isn’t the case with The Act, the Hulu show written by Michelle Dean, who first interviewed the Blanchards for her BuzzFeed article. Gypsy’s step-mom, Kristy Blanchard, has expressed how upset she is about the show before, and so has Fancy Macelli, a friend of the family and the only official owner of Gypsy’s life story. Aleah Woodmansee, Gypsy’s friend and neighbor, has also spoken out about the show. They told In Touch exactly what they thought about episode 6, ‘A Whole New World,’ and now they’re breaking down everything that they think episode 7 got wrong, too. Fancy, who’s handling press for the family, spoke on behalf of both of them. Check out the gallery below to see where The Act differs from the true story of what happened to Gypsy.
