Casey Anthony: 48 Hours Mystery Episode Airs Tonight

October 17, 2009

I won’t be watching as I’ll be out somewhat late tonight. In fact, I don’t really have any desire to watch the episode.

I hope that anyone who does watch can leave their thoughts, though. I’ll be interested to hear what everyone thinks.

There has been a lot of anticipation for what we may see, hear or learn from this show. I don’t expect that there will be any “OMG” moments because I’m sure that any surprises would have been leaked, by now.


Casey Anthony: CBS Paid $20,000 For Family Participation

October 17, 2009

Cindy Anthony has told prosecutors that her and her husband were paid $20,000 by CBS for participating in a show focusing on their granddaughter, Caylee Anthony.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

On Friday, their attorney, Brad Conway, confirmed he negotiated that amount in a licensing fee for videos and pictures of the Anthony family taken in happier times.

At 10 tonight, 48 Hours Mystery will dedicate an hour to the case. Anthony’s defense team, friends and her parents — George and Cindy Anthony — were interviewed for the program that will air on WKMG-Channel 6.

Prosecutors asked Cindy Anthony if she has made any money for selling pictures of Caylee.

She talked about getting money from 48 Hours Mystery. At that point, the couple had only received $10,000 and expected to receive another $10,000. She said $3,000 went toward Conway for negotiating the deal.

“I received a check for the first time,” Cindy Anthony said.

A CBS News spokeswoman said the couple were not paid for interviews.

Casey Anthony: More on ’48 Hours Mystery’ Epidode

October 15, 2009

Thanks, (as always!) to Hal Boedeker for a great post this morning, updating readers on the upcoming 48 Hours Mystery episode focusing on the Casey Anthony case.

Sounds like there is going to be a lot of praise from Casey’s fiancee Jesse Grund towards Caylee as well as a lot of blasting of Casey.

I love a quote from Grund surrounding the ending of their engagement: “She claimed I loved Caylee more than I loved her.”

Should be fun! 🙂

From The TV Guy:

Jesse Grund praises Caylee Anthony and blasts her mother, former fiancee Casey Anthony, in an interview to air this weekend on “48 Hours Mystery.”

The CBS newsmagazine shared excerpts from some interviews in the hour report. Maggie Rodriguez of “The Early Show” is the reporter. The program airs at 10 p.m. Saturday on WKMG-Channel 6.

“Caylee was a really easy baby, I gotta be honest … so wonderful,” Grund says. “I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her.”

Casey Anthony told Grund that he was Caylee’s father, but a paternity test proved otherwise. (Casey Anthony is shown conferring with attorney Jose Baez in this August photo by Red Huber of the Sentinel.)

“It said zero-percent probability that I was the biological father,” Grund says. “It was relieving and heartbreaking at the same time. I didn’t want anybody to be that little girl’s father except for me.”
