Reporter: This is their only selfie together. Gypsy Blanchard dressed as Cinderella. Nick godejohn her prince charming. But their happily ever after, may never come true. The once loving couple now at odds and facing the possibility of life behind bars for the murder of gypsy's mother Dee Dee Blanchard. There's a big difference between someone who asks someone to kill someone and someone that actually does it. Is there? I think so because I would never kill somebody.

Over here I feel like I'm freer in prison than with living with my mom because now I'm allowed to just live like a Normal woman. Prison isn't Normal. No. Not for most. But for me it is. What do you think he would want to say to you? I don't think it would be anything nice. All I could hope is that from wherever she is that she still loves me in some small way.
