George and Cindy Anthony on Larry King Live talking about Casey and Caylee

December 11, 2008

As expected, George and Cindy had a relatively free ride on Larry King Live last night. If you didn’t see it, you can watch it here. (warning: don’t watch if you have a weak stomach!)

Anthonys on Larry King Live

The most notable moment for me was when Larry asked George what, as a former police officer, he thought the smell in the car was. He actually said he hadn’t known before how bad food rotting in the trunk for 18 days could smell. (do you remember his police interview??? He had to go outside and throw up just from REMEMBERING the smell–he also said at that time he KNEW the smell was a decomposing body and prayed it wasn’t Caylee in the trunk!)

Cindy, when asked about the “smells like a dead body in the damn car” statement on the 911 tape, said that’s not what she said (after they played the actual clip showing that WAS what she said). She said. “I’ve opened my refrigerator door and asked what died in here before.”

Liars, liars, pants on fire!!

    I had forgotten about that–Couldn’t believe she said there was just ONE picture and it was staged. Another blatant lie!

    I just watched the clip where George was asked about the smell. Did you notice how he spoke with his eyes almost completely closed if not closed? I do not recall him speaking like this when he was with LE, that tells it all IMO.

    Jeff Hopkins stated that he did not refer Casey to this Zenaida and that his daughter was never babysat by her – why didnt Larry King ask about that? Casey stated during the jailhouse tapes that yes, Jeff Hopkins DID refer her and that his daughter was watched by Zenaida. What’s up with that? Why didnt Larry King ask why there isnt one phone record showing that Casey contacted any babysitter, let alone this Zenaida. I just find it hard to feel sorry for the Anthonys in the respect that they are covering up, plain and simple. I sympathize with them that they have indeed lost a granddaughter however covering up for Casey is wrong. Guess they don’t know right from wrong.

    Either Larry King didn’t do his homework, or more likely, that was the agreement for them to be on the show–they could tell their version of the story without being called out on anything. Larry King does pretty fluffy interviews-not much controversy allowed so this interview didn’t surprise me–the blatant lies kind of did though–especially since Cindy is already on thin ice as far as obstructing justice.

    That’s exactly what I thought; that Larry King was only allowed to tread so far into the situation by the Chief Controller; Cindy. I think it’s a travesty for poor little Caylee. Cindy says her main concern and focus is Caylee however the smoke and mirrors routine is doing everything but helping to find her. Very sad.

    This family makes statements and then lies about the statements they made. I think is is pathetic, they all are sick. If I was looking for Caylee, I would look under the poured slab on concrete that was poured July 4th. As a marker I believe they put Caylee favorite toy, her playhouse on top of it. The dogs pick up a scent in the back yard, but never anything came of it.

    George and Cindy Anthony dont love Caylee, they love the money that their making off the TV shows and lying out of their big fat mouths to get money and donations from the good hearted people to keep this DUMB ASS CHARADE going on to help them pay their bills, and help their BIG FAT LYING MOUTH daughter Casey to get out of jail, at the expense of their POOR DEAD GRANDAUGHTER LYING THEIR IN THE GROUND OR WATER OR BURIED SOMEWHERE, AND AT THIS POINT CAYLEE IS PROBABLY ALL BONES…But they rather lie their BIG FAT ASSES OFF AND PROTECT THEIR PIECE OF CRAP LYING DAUGHTER AND NOT EVEN HELP LOOK FOR THEIR GRANDDAUGHTERS REMAINS…The Anthonys should be hung from a tree, they are a digusting lying disgrace of human beings…Just My Thoughts…P.S. THE TRUTH WILL ALL COME OUT AT TRIAL, AND THEN THE ANTHONYS WILL BE ALL WHERE THEY BELONG…”IN HELL”

    LK obviously hasn’t spent much time looking at the facts of this case. Nothing was brought up about Casey’s lie after lie to LE when Padilla bonded her out so she could “help” in the investigation. 11 or 12 Zaneida Gonzalez’s? How about the one and only ZG Casey herself escorted LE to where the nanny lived and where she dropped Caylee off? And only 1 picture? How about the many, many the FBI told George they had? And C & G are still talking about pizza in the trunk when we know there was no pizza, just an empty box? I was even PO’d at the callers–the one lady SHOULD have started her question with “After you told the FBI about the smell of death in the car, what are your feelings as a former police officer, etc.
    The whole interview was glossed over, with LK showing such sympathy for the Anthony’s–while Cindy kepy her claw over George’s hand to shut him up when she had to. I am just disgusted,

    You know, I am so sick of these people and their denial. I have a kid whose been in trouble his whole life. I don’t know why, but sometimes no matter what you do, there a some people who cannot get their shit together and can’t make a decent life choice and are always getting in trouble.

    My son was arrested making an illegal left turn yesterday. His bond is ONE MILLION dollars. Twice as much as Casey Anthony’s. What did he do that was worse than murdering a baby?

    Apparently he is being charged with transporting an illegal substance (steroids) over state lines.

    He’s also being extradited to another state to deal with this. This is something he got involved with some years ago and (to my knowledge) left behind him 3 years ago when he moved back here.

    But some of the people he was involved with continued the practice and were caught, and named my son as a party to it.

    I would LOVE to believe that my son had nothing to do with this and these kids are just naming names to save their skin.

    But the reality of this is, the state wouldn’t go to all the trouble and expense to try this thing if there was no basis in fact to it.

    It breaks my heart. I keep thinking, yet again, where of where did I go wrong?

    But he’s a 27 year old man who was raised right, knows right from wrong and made a choice to sell something he knew could hurt other people so he could make some cash. There’s no excuse for what he did.

    I cannot in good faith try to cover and lie for him. His choices are not a reflection of how he was raised and not a reflection of who I am as a person.

    The night before he was arrested, he came home to his wife so drunk he could hardly walk in the door, and he had DRIVEN himself home in that condition.

    It’s a good thing they arrested him now, instead of catching him in the act of drunk driving killing some innocent person or entire family.

    This kid needs to sit and stew in jail for awhile. He apparently has no regard for the health and safety of others, and certainly has no regard for his own. This makes him a dangerous person.

    Is he a nice person? Yes. Is he inherently good? YES. But he is also a danger to himself and more importantly, others. When I think about the lives he could have ruined, I cringe.

    I would rather my kid sit in jail for what he did than for drinking, driving and taking a life.

    THAT I know in my heart I could not find a way to survive knowing.

    Casey Anthony is a danger to herself and more importantly, OTHER people. The little innocent, most precious kind of people.

    Her parents need to figure this out. She is best living her life behind bars. She will take down anyone around her.

    She is a vampire.

    George and Cindy know in their hearts that Caylee is an angel in heaven; safer than she’s ever been in her lifetime here on earth. So their focus has shifted to saving Casey. Problem is, our job as parents is to raise our children to be independent and righteous adults. If we don’t allow them to suffer the consequences of their actions, we are doing them an injustice. If all the things that Cindy and George are doing are successful in putting doubts in a juror’s mind (doubtful), then they will be sorry because this won’t be the last thing that Casey does. They are raising a monster. I have strong suspicions that Cindy and George were on Casey’s hitlist for their insurance money. The same people that are her biggest supporters were probably going to be victims of her sick mentality. And poor Lee, being accused of sexual advances towards his own sister – maybe that’s why he has been almost non-existant lately. Yet another victim of Casey.

    The whole interview was just over the top. I wonder if George and Cindy ever review the public statements they have made. They are so determined to sway public opinon that they are blind to the fact that by lying and twisting the truth they have lost all credibility and sympathy. Especially George. And to blame Nancy Grace and Leonard Padilla; this statement made me cringe for it shows the pathology of this family – to blame others for their plight when clearly it is all began with Casey’s outrageous lies. Its Amy’s fault, its Zenaidas fault, its Jesse’s fault and now Nancy and Leonard. The Anthonys don’t have to follow the rules, they are above them. Do they really think that their interviews are helping? They must think the public stupid and gulliable. But I say to the Anthonys keep it up. Instead of answering some of the questions they create hundreds more,and are backing themselves into a corner. Instead of grieving grandparents they’ve have made themselves co-conspirators. They claim to know so much about what happned to Caylee that I can only surmise that Casey told them things that should be reported to the authorities. No wonder Nejame resigned from representing this family run amuck. Its a travesty and mockery of the law.

    I knew Larry would probably tred lightly with them, but come on that was ridiculous! I will never again watch his show. It was completely one-sided, geared towards garnering sympathy for that sick, pathetic family. Obviously the calls were pre-screened & pre-recorded. My question would have been:

    George & Cindy, how exactly did Casey ‘look’ for Caylee between June & July when according to all her friends, club owners, video recordings she was just ‘hanging out’ cooking & cleaning for her boyfriend, going to parties, shopping, stealing, texting, seemingly very happy all the while completly lying to you (as you admitted to law enforcement) that she was away for work….When & where during this time did she search?????????????????????????

    I think it was killing George to do that interview last night. He knew he was lying and it was eating him up. Cindy on the other hand has no problem twisting her story or the truth. Does Cindy think we(the general population)are morons? Seriously, how do you think you can say something on national t.v. that completely contradicts things you’ve stated previously?? That interview, while I knew it would be lame in terms of questions, really spoke volumes of the Anthonys. Why even go on Larry King?? What did it accomplish? Nothing. Did they do it just to get paid? If not then I see no point of them saying anything, it just made them look worse. Cindy with the smell in the trunk again. How could they outright lie and say there was pizza in the trunk and George saw it, yet it’s been proven there was NO pizza, just a box? Cindy saying that Casey is a loving mother, yet she told Amy Huzienga(sp)in the car to pick up Casey on 7/15 that she was an unfit mother. Amy said that Casey herself told her that her Cindy tells Casey she’s an unfit mother. Cindy even told Amy, it’s in the police transcripts, that she thought Casey or Caylee was dead in the trunk of the car. Once this case goes to trial, the truth WILL come out. The Anthonys are just trying to paint a picture of a perfect family, but on the stand things will be a totally different situation.

    Shannon, I agree LK did tread lightly but I am sure he was given specifics on what he could ask, who could call in etc. I don’t think it’s LK’s fault. I actually think it was a great interview. One reason is that Larry would ask questions, then let them answer. His next question would contradict the previous one. It was a basic interview but he asked the questions and the nation got to see the Anthony’s make fools of themselves. I feel it hurt their reputation even more. I don’t know if it was LK’s intention to make them look foolish but I doubt they would have let him hammer them with tough ones. The death smell was a good example. George said it smelled like rotting food, then LK came back and said weren’t you in law enforcement, wouldn’t you know what a dead body smells like? George wouldn’t go there. It was pretty lame but it showed the true Anthonys.

    Yeah, one more question? If as you admitted to law enforcement Casey did NOT have a job, how was she paying for this nanny? And why would she need one anyways? geeze, I’m disgusted.

    George seemed as though he was being somewhat honest when he spoke to LE. He set up the meeting on his own without Lee & Cindys knowledge to give them info. Now he just goes along with whatever Cindy says. ? Hmmmm, I bet after she saw that video of him that LE released, she threatened him & told him she’d expose him & turn him in for his role in the cover up. They’re both in on it, & he’s scared shitless of being blamed as an accessory.

    Caylee has been sighted multiple times with multiple people, criss-crossing the country- why hasn’t one single credible person come forward to THE POLICE with information? If a normal person in there heart, truly believed that they saw the actual Caylee, wouldn’t they call 911 immediatly? I would. Nobody else has, because the poor girl is dead.

    And don’t you all just love how Cindy explained the public’s opinion of them was Nancy Grace’s fault??? I spent most of the interview with my mouth hanging open. Not that I was really surprised as much as I can’t believe that Cindy calls herself a Christian and then lies like that.

    Someone please give me some kind of theory to this question….

    Who was watching Caylee BEFORE she went missing? I mean we all know there was no nanny. But in May & early June while Casey was out gallavanting partying with friends & boyfriends, where the hell was her kid? No one has come forward to say they babysat…..Where was she during all these times?

    If you don’t know already, skeletal remains of a small child have been found less than 1/4 mile from the Anthony home by a utility worker this morning. It’s by the gradeschool in a heavily wooded area where Casey and her friends played.

    I am soooooo excited that policy appear to have found Caylee’s body. Now, all of us who have fallen in love with this little girl can grieve and get beyond this terrible tragedy. Same on the Anthony’s for their interview on Larry King last night. For as much as they have lied throughout this entire mess, I cannot feel any sympathy for them.

    TO THE POSTER NAMED SOPHIE: I’m so sorry for your troubles, and I just want to say that it’s refreshing to see a mother who is willing to see clearly and admit when her son (or daughter) has screwed up. It’s very intelligent and mature behavior on your part and the complete opposite of what we see coming out of Cindy Anthony. My heart goes out to Cindy, but I’m tired of watching/reading interview after interview where she’s lashing out and blaming everyone other than Casey for what their family is going through. Cindy seems to place as much value on telling the truth as Casey does. As for Larry King…he’s lucky if he manages to stay awake “for the full hour.” He’s pitiful.

    It was just so obvious that whole interview was set up to be sympathetic to the Anthonys. It didn’t surprise me though. Larry King isn’t known for his hard driving interviews.

    I am sorry for your problems with your son. I have to tell you that you are a very courageous woman to see what he’s done for what it is and be able to allow him to suffer the consequences of his actions. Maybe it won’t be too late for him. Maybe he will learn from this experience as bad as it may be. Sometimes it takes a life altering event to make someone change.

    It sounds to me like drugs and alcohol have a strong hold on him. They did on my son. We all know what that can do to a person, and that not everyone is strong enough to battle that demon.

    I agree that the Anthonys have to stop enabling Casey–George needs to stop enabling Cindy–and come to grips with what is the truth here–whatever it is. Cindy says on the tapes Casey needs to draw her strenth from her–I say Cindy needs to muster her strength for herself and what lies ahead.

    I agree that George seemed to be having issues on Larry King. It was odd the way his eyes kept fluttering when he talked and how he didn’t look directly at Larry. I’ve seen him do that before and agree it’s an indication that he’s lying.

    I also agree with Karen that the Anthonys just might have been on Casey’s hit list. Saying her Dad had a heart attack–telling her friend that her parents were going to give her their house, etc.
