LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The parents of Casey Anthony, who was acquitted in July of charges that she killed her young daughter, will sit with Dr. Phil for their first interview since the trial, the program announced on Tuesday.
Anthony's trial in the death of her two-year-old daughter Caylee became a media sensation when it aired on television, and since it ended, the 25-year-old mother and her parents George and Cindy have stayed away from the public spotlight

well is this a good thing or not?the parent shave been drug through the mud so will Dr.Phil give them some peace of mind?
I think hes a good pick anyone else will tear her apart, she may manipulate him!
Maybe they feel they want a chance to present their own side of the story themselves, and in a way that's likely to reach the most people at once.
It can't be compared to the Anthony case, but in my own little (previously extremely private and peaceful) life, I've actually had two situations that ripped the doors off any privacy and sent a bunch of "crap information" out into the world (in my case, a much smaller world; but that was bad enough to have live with/through).
I can't speak for them, but I know that for me it wasn't even a matter of "what people think of me". It was a matter of how they later related to me. More importantly, it was my complete disgust and frustration at having people take the bad information they had, or else some tiny piece of information that was accurate; and imagine up their own versions of the rest of the story (which, some people's "ugly-colored glasses" being what they are, somehow always tended to be a more dramatic and extremely unflattering piece of fiction that they'd then pass along for others' "enjoyment and entertainment"). You'd never realize how bad those "ugly-colored glasses" can make things unless/until your own privacy has been ripped away, and get a little idea of what some sides to some people's human nature is capable of dreaming up.
So I understand why they'd want to do the interview. If they're perfectly nice and innocent people it will give them the chance to take a little control of their own "story". I really think most people, no matter what their flaws or problems are would first prefer to keep their business private; but if they've been robbed of that "luxury" then the next preference is to keep other people's lies, exaggerations, and actions from making a far big mess in their lives than otherwise would have had to exist.
So, I think from their perspective, since they're doing the interview, it's probably a good thing.
