As if it were not enough that Casey Anthony has bombarded the internet with her shallow, selfish little video diary, the news from her and her camp doesn’t stop there. No, yesterday was filled with news about Casey, as was the past few weeks. We now know that there is at least one very unpopular person that is flashing dollar signs at Casey for a “tell all interview”.
Nik Richie, the founder of the website The Dirty, tells HLN’s Showbiz Tonight he is offering Casey $350,000 for a tell-all about being accused and acquitted on charges she killed her daughter Caylee.
From much of what I have read this guy may not even have that kind of money and even if he does, he is not known for the best business practices, as his site is by most accounts really all about destroying lives. I do not know anything about him (except what I have read in research for this article), but he is apparently, again, not very well liked, even less now. Oh well. You can take a look for yourself.
So, the bottom line on that is that “IF” Casey goes for that, she will likely get burned in one way or another.
As far as the stories of her firing Baez, or him quitting before he could get fired, Geraldo saying he is moving his practice to Miami, when he is still in Orlando, blah, blah, blah……….I really don’t take much stock in what Geraldo says and even less in what Casey says or what Baez says, so it is really up for grabs, but I will say that Cheney Mason would not be a good candidate to shop her around to the media. He doesn’t get along very well with the media, so Casey would be less likely to land the deal with him than with Baez. As far as the complaint that Baez has been hamming it up and living the life with the media, instead of her getting that big interview……….Well, now, he’s been doing that for better than 3 years now. What planet has she been on? Here’s the bottom line in all of that……….The diary, the alleged leaks, the stories sold to tabloids, the rumors…..Casey wants attention and money and she wants both really bad. I find it interesting that it took OJ Simpson 11 years to write that book “If I Did It”, mocking his accusers, Casey couldn’t hold out 11 months, which means she’s a bigger narcissist than OJ. Oh yeah, she will be in trouble again. Probably sooner than anyone could have imagined. Her videos were so self-centered, like she thinks that anyone cares about her, like she thinks she is a star. SHE’S NOT!!!
It would be incredibly interesting to see Casey and Mason be against Baez, as I’m just sure that things might come to light in a war between them that they might regret. Probably not so much about the case itself, but more about the dirty connections and money that funded it. We shall see…………..
Finally we have those pesky depositions by the mental health professionals, that the defense wanted to use, but changed their minds when the State said okay, we want our own independent evaluations. You can see where the infamous opening statement by Jose Baez came from, but there were some differences. I’m going to make a few key points about those and then let you decide.
My first major point in all of this is that Casey claims that Caylee was a product of “date rape” at a party and she doesn’t know who Caylee’s father was. Casey has always had this little habit of mixing just a tiny bit of truth in to a mountain of lies, so to me the likely bit of truth is that she never knew who Caylee’s father was. I do not believe she was raped, not when she was speaking so nonchalantly about it. Just like the statement she made when “Caylee was missing” (though we know she never was), that she felt that she was okay and that she was close by. The little bit of truth was that Caylee’s remains were close by. She made that statement more than once and she based it on that feeling or connection you have as a mother. We know as those reports go on, as well as from following the case, that she was lying about her feelings as a mother.
My second major point is about her claiming that Caylee drowned and how everything happened that day. Does anyone really believe that Casey would be willing to take the rap for her father, facing the death penalty? I don’t. It just does not fit with the selfishness I see in that girl. She rambles on about believing that George murdered Caylee, that it wasn’t an accident. In reality, there is a little bit of truth in that…….Caylee was murdered, just not by George and SHE (Casey) came back and then left again with Caylee, after which SHE never saw Caylee again (substitute Casey for George), because SHE dumped her in the woods. In her own way she was telling the truth, but she substituted her father for herself. While I’m on the subject of George, I still do not believe her molestation accusations, but that is because she denied it until she concocted the drowning story, coupled with Casey’s praises of what a “great” grandfather and father George was in those jailhouse videos. I believe those stories were stories of convenience, but even if these things did happen, it is still no excuse for her actions, PERIOD. I also do not see Casey Anthony as a victim of anything, though she would love for the world to believe that. Casey is so selfish and so self-entitled that she will be in trouble again and with the desperate attempts she and her camp are making for attention and money, not letting this story die, I would say sooner, rather than later.
My third and final point (on those depositions) is simply this, Judge Perry sealed those depositions until the trial was over. The Orlando Sentinel petitioned the court to release them, after which the defense made a stink about Jeff Ashton recalling some of what was in them in his book and tried to claim privilege and violation of rights. Judge Perry unsealed them and simply said he only intended them to be sealed until the trial was over. The truth is there is nothing in those depositions that is privileged because most of what Casey said was lies and because there was actually no detailed mental evaluations in them, as she appeared normal, except for her reactions to her child at first being “missing”, later being dead and her incarceration for both. Basically the analysis came down to her lying and her attitude, neither of which are privileged.
HLN tweeted a story this afternoon about the timing of all of this, which I found interesting.
In conclusion I would also like to share with you that a version of “Caylee’s Law” has made it out of the Florida Senate. Let’s hope that it passes.
Take a look:
Link Has Expired. Though I removed the link because it is no longer valid, since that article a version of the law has made it through the House in Florida. It is not quite law yet, but it had 100% support in the House, so it will soon be law.
