Dr. Phil teased that anyone with an opinion of the Anthony's would change their minds after seeing his interview with them.
As someone who does not watch Dr. Phil, I made a point of tuning into the two days of interviews with George and Cindy Anthony and frankly, I am disappointed. The second day's interview ended on a bit of a cliffhanger with no announcement of when the rest of the "revelations" will air. (maybe next time Dr.Phil needs ratings?)
Cindy Anthony is delusional. There is no doubt in my mind that this woman is the queen of enabling behavior. I really resent when people boast that they prayed to God about something and interpret what happens as a sign from God.
According to Cindy Anthony, Casey's acquittal was God's way of saying that Caylee's death was an accident and therefore she deserved to be free.
I do not see it that way.
The reason that Casey Anthony is "free" is because the state of Florida could not prove how Caylee died. There is no concrete proof of much because all that was left of Caylee's body was skeletal remains. Anyone who has any knowledge of forensics knows that finding cause of death from bones is tough. Because you do not find anything does not mean it didn't happen.
This is the way Cindy Anthony lives her life. The writing is on the wall but she chooses how she interprets it. Denial at its finest.
Cindy Anthony is a weak woman who hides behind her faith. She will not "judge" Casey, God will. Well you know something? If she was my daughter I would judge her. I would have never ever let her get away with her behavior. I would have been wise to her lies instead of denying them.
George Anthony attempted suicide because he felt that he failed his family. Yes George, you did fail your family.
Trained as a cop, your weakness allowed you to deny that your daughter was disturbed. You sat by and allowed her to steal from you for years. You put up with her lies and you watched your wife justify Casey's lies and you continue to.
This is a sick, twisted kind of love.
Caylee is in a better place. She is now safe from this family who cannot see that there were problems in their home for a long,long time. Deep down they must know how disturbed they all truly are but they cannot be accountable for themselves.
According to Dr.Phil, no money was paid to the Anthony's for the 9 hours of interviews he did. Money will be donated to the charity fund the Anthony's are setting up in Caylee's name.
Some argue that the Anthonys are still ultimately profiting from the death of their granddaughter. I see it more as they are proving the public right by their "revelations".
They are a freak show and they should look no further for answers to Casey's behavior than their own reflections.
