Casey Anthony: $500,000 Offer From Hustler Magazine

July 29, 2011

Controversial Hustler Magazine publisher Larry Flynt has offered Casey Anthony $500,000 to pose nude in his adult magazine.

From CNN:

The pornography magnate told HLN’s “Nancy Grace” show on Thursday night that talks are ongoing that could land Anthony on the pages of his magazine, weeks after a Florida jury acquitted her of murder in her 2-year-old daughter Caylee’s death.

Anthony’s camp denied the report, dismissing it as “nonsense.”

But Flynt insisted he was serious about the offer, which he said would include $500,000 up front plus 10% of all profits. He said any payment that the Orlando woman might receive for interviews with media outlets would be “chicken feed” compared to what she’d receive by appearing in Hustler.

“If they want to get their hands on big money, they’ve got to go through me,” Flynt said.

July 27, 2011

Judge Perry has ruled that the names of the jurors in the Casey Anthony trial will remain a secret until October 25.

From Reuters:

Judge Belvin Perry acknowledged in his 13-page order that juror names must be disclosed eventually under Florida’s broad Public Records laws. But he took the opportunity to complain about modern-day media.

Perry lamented what he said was the blurring of lines between news and entertainment, saying court proceedings have become just another form of mindless entertainment and a revenue source for broadcast networks.

“It was reported that television ratings for the trial were extraordinary. Clearly, the broadcast of an official and serious court proceeding such as this trial where a young girl was dead and her mother faced the death penalty devolved into cheap, soap-opera-like entertainment,” Perry wrote.
