George and Cindy Anthony on Larry King Live
George and Cindy Anthony
May 13, 2009
If you missed Larry King Live, with George and Cindy Anthony, here's a brief summary of the show:
Essentially, George Anthony said that any "sensible" person would stand behind his daughter, regardless of the situation.
The Anthony's voiced their frustrations about having their conversations with Casey Anthony recorded and aired on television. Larry King posed the question: but if Casey Anthony is not guilty of this crime, what does it matter if the interviews are recorded? George Anthony turned beat red, took a deep breath, and Cindy Anthony took over the conversation. Cindy Anthony seemed to change the subject rather quickly.
Larry King discussed the way Caylee' Anthony's body was disposed of. He mentioned the duct tape on Caylee Anthony's skull. Brad Conway, George and Cindy Anthony's attorney, said he doubts the duct tape was on the skull. Brad Conway also claimed that "There was no heart shaped sticker on the duct tape. This was speculation."
Cindy Anthony voiced her opinions about bloggers and their critics. She said that a lot of people support her and her husband, George Anthony. However, Cindy Anthony claimed that bloggers do not support them because bloggers need more positivity in their lives. She also said that it's sad that bloggers spend their lives pointing out negative things about the Anthony's. Essentially, the only people who do not support the Anthony's are "bloggers."
Cindy said that "there is no motive" for Casey Anthony to kill Caylee. She maintains that Casey was a good mother.
Larry King asked about the pictures of Casey Anthony partying while Caylee Anthony was missing. Cindy Anthony said: "That was just one picture. One time."
During the interview, Larry King asked about Casey Anthony's diary. Brad Conway and Cindy Anthony had a disagreement over the diary entry. Cindy Anthony's hand swooped down and she literally grabbed her attorney's leg while he is spoke. She attempted to correct Brad's statements and made it clear that she disagreed with Mr. Conway, regarding Casey Anthony's diary.
(My prediction: The Anthony's will fire their attorney soon.)
George and Cindy Anthony release this message to their critics:
"A message to everyone that wants to see something good come from a tragedy. The last 9 months have been a living hell for my family and no one could possibly understand. There is no reason for any of this and there are no answers that will ever make things better.
How does one deal with things they do not understand? Everyone deals with their emotions differently. Some keep things bottled up, others get angry and look only for the negative. With a good support system, anyone can deal with these emotions and turn them into a positive outcome. This is what our family is trying to do by creating Caylee Marie’s foundation. Doing so will give us a focus off the negative and allow us to heal by helping others.
We know that the months ahead will be difficult; however, we are willing to move ahead and turn the tragic loss of our Caylee into a living tribute to her very existence. You see the love in our family is strong, and no matter what will be placed in our path, our love for her will be the driving force.
Some want us to do things differently, to those who disagree with what we do, all I can say to them is that this is our way to cope. This is our way to grieve, and our way to honor our Caylee Marie." ~ George & Cindy Anthony
My opinion: The Anthony's exhibited bizare behavior, as usual. Brad Conway should not have commented on evidence in the case. It's not his place to do so. The contradictions were clear in this interview and it did nothing to help the Anthony's or their daughter. Especially, the questions regarding the "smell" she reported in her 911 call (Cindy stated that her fridge smells bad sometimes, too) and the pictures of Casey partying while Caylee was missing ("it was one time" she huffed, as if to say "big deal").
