Ken Urker's letter to Gypsy Rose Blanchard led to an in-prison relationship 

Williams and her family have been sympathetic to Blanchard. She and Urker learned about Blanchard’s story from the HBO documentary 'Mommy Dead and Dearest'.

Urker even wrote a letter to Blanchard in prison in 2018 with his mother's permission. "He asked me before he wrote the letter and I thought it was a great idea just to show the girl that people out there her age can sympathize," Williams said.

Blanchard detailed about her relationship with Urker to E! News saying, "I wrote him back and pretty soon we just started writing on a weekly basis." She added, "We became fast friends. It was pretty soon after that that we started talking on the phone."

Spending hours on the phone, "I talked to him like I had known him my whole life and vice versa," she said. When they met in a prison visitation room, Ken "gave me the most wonderful kiss of my whole life."

Urker also told her that she was the first girl that he had ever told, "I love you too." After getting engaged the pair split in 2018 when Blanchard was still in prison.

The recent meet-up, which included both of them getting tattoos, comes after Blanchard announced her separation from Anderson, a special education teacher from Louisiana whom she married in prison in 2022.

“As of right now, there are no plans on a romantic scale right now,” Williams says of Blanchard and Urker’s friendship.

“My son has never had any kind of ill intentions towards Gypsy. It devastated him when they broke up the first time. But he truly thought that was what was best for Gypsy,” she added.

Blanchard announced her separation from Anderson on social media on March 29, stating, “People have been asking what is going on in my life."

"Unfortunately my husband and I are going through a separation and I moved in with my parents home down the bayou," she said.

"I have the support of my family and friends to help guide me through this. I am learning to listen to my heart. Right now I need time to let myself find… who I am," Blanchard concluded.
