Gypsy Rose Blanchard is not wasting any time.

The former inmate — who served more than eight years in prison for conspiring to murder her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, with ex-boyfriend Nick Godejohn — separated from husband Ryan Scott Anderson in March.

She then filed for divorce a few days later.

Both of these actions came mere months after Blanchard became a free woman.

Now, meanwhile, free from the constraints of her marriage, Blanchard has reunited with her former fiance, Ken Urker.

The controversial figure and Urker kissed for everyone to see at a jazz festival in New Orleans over this past weekend, with TMZ having obtained footage of the couple dancing and also swapping spit.

“After reconnecting earlier this month, we realized that our love for each other is simply undeniable, and life is too short to not take a chance,” Blanchard told this same website on Monday, adding:

“We have a history that made for the perfect foundation for a new beginning. We are together and in a wonderful place in our relationship.

“We know it is going to be a long road ahead but are excited for the future.”

Blanchard announced her separation from her spouse in a Facebook statement on March 28.

“People have been asking what is going on in my life,” the post opened back then.

“Unfortunately my husband and I are going through a separation and I moved in with my parents home down the bayou. 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.”
