The Casey Anthony saga continues, as her parents are set to appear on the season 10 premiere of “Dr. Phil” next month.
This will mark the first time George and Cindy Anthony have publicly spoken since their daughter was acquitted in July of killing her young daughter. source
According to a statement released Monday by the show, the episode will examine the public scrutiny the two have faced during and after their daughter’s murder trial.
“Cindy and George have suffered a horrific loss with the untimely death of their granddaughter Caylee, and they have since endured an unprecedented public attack on their family,” Dr. Phil said. “Have these attacks been warranted, or not? I looked them straight in the eye and asked some very tough questions. Despite living under a ‘media microscope’ for years, THEIR story has never really been told and there’s so much more to it than we’ve heard in the media. Throughout this extensive interview, we explore every detail of their ordeal, and they answer every question I know will be on our viewers’ minds. Nothing is off limits during this interview.”
“We are hoping that by doing this interview, we will be able to help other people who may be experiencing struggles of their own,” Cindy Anthony said in a statement. “We certainly don’t want anyone to experience what we have these last three years.”
The interview will air Sept. 12. The release stated that the Anthonys will not be compensated for the interview, but instead ask for donations to Caylee’s Fund, a charity they set up to advocate for the rights of grandparents of missing children.
