I would suspect that the plastic stand is just stuck on the glass by age.

What happens is the pressure from the weight of the TV combined with aging of the rubber cushions on the bottom of the stand have deteriorated (broken down) and become sticky, adhering it to the glass. Try applying more pressure and levering with a wide, thin pry-bar. like a wallpaper scraper or similar. Heating the plastic up with a hairdryer might help loosen it.

I'd agree with @John7. You could also try twisting the stand with a quick snap. That should break any bond without putting undue pressure on the glass.

What does she want to do with it as from that picture it looks like it's incredibly unlikely it will fit any other TV?
