Dr. Phil on George and Cindy Anthony Interview: A Cathartic, No-Holds-Barred Experience

by at . Comments

Dr. Phil holds nothing back in his interview with Casey Anthony’s parents.

The much-anticipated sit-down with George and Cindy Anthony, which will now air Tuesday due to the Novak Djokovic vs. Rafael Nadal U.S. Open title match, is their first since Casey Anthony was acquitted of murdering Caylee.

Phil wants to make clear in previews that he GRILLS her folks ...

Specifically, Phil lays into Cindy over a chilling MySpace message she posted 12 days before she called 911 to declare Caylee Anthony missing.

“My Caylee is missing. She came into my life unexpectedly just as she has left me. Jealousy has taken her away, jealousy from the one person that should be thankful for all the love, support and strength given to her,” she wrote.

Cindy tells Dr. Phil that she didn’t mean it literally.

It wasn't until 31 days had passed that she really knew Caylee was missing, she said. By that point, the high-profile case was national news.

“Caylee was missing in my heart that day. She wasn’t missing physically, in the sense, because I thought I knew where she was at,” she said.

“I wanted [Casey Anthony] to know how much she was hurting me. And I thought that she was purposely keeping Caylee away from me.”

Asked about the smell in the trunk of Casey’s car, that prosecutors claimed was Caylee’s decaying body, Cindy and George had no answer.

“Truthfully, to this day I don’t know. To be honest,” Cindy said.

“Do you want to believe Caylee was back there? I don’t want to believe it. But I’m going by what investigators have told me,” George said.

“All I know is that Caylee’s not with us anymore. I know that.”

Dr. Phil told Matt Lauer on the Today show that he felt both of Casey’s parents held a tremendous amount of disdain for Casey's defense team.

“George would never have put us through those six months of not knowing where Caylee was if he knew where Caylee was,” Cindy said.

Part one of Dr. Phil’s Q&A with Cindy and George airs tomorrow. Phil told Matt Lauer today that it was a cathartic experience. Watch:

The apple did not fall far far from the tree when it comes to Casey and d


Dr. Phil, It is hard to know what to think about George and Cindy. I ran into them in Target in Orlando during the trial. I went up to hug Cindy and she said "no hugs" /I will shake your hand. I have been having anxiety attacks. Then I see her on TV hugging everyone in the courtroom and also at the memorial for Caylee. Was that a lie? Just wondering. Thanks for letting me comment


Are you kidding me? If The baby was missing for 31 days! And no one knowes wear shes at.How did her body get in the pool? She was already killed by her Mother. Her body was not in the pool for 2 4 6 8 10 14 days but31 days. I cant beleave Cindy can sleep at night she knows Casey killed her BABBY. She needs to go to jail for liying eveyone can see right throught you bitch. At least your husban can live with the truth .You must live with your self & be proud of hidding the sicknees of you and your Deviels child.


What the hell is WRONG with Cindy???? She is a wack job just like her daughter!!!! She murdered her baby and her mom makes excuses for her. I agree 100% with George!!! He is CORRECT


If Casey hadn't been around the Anthony home for that 31 days, how did Caylee drown in their pool?


I think that entire family should be locked up to protect the world from a family of NUTS. I don't think any of them would tell the truth to GOD.


I agree with George ,i always believe she kill her baby because she got in the way of her having fun.I think caley came between her and her boyfriend and she got jealous ,she wasn't the main one in his life .and the same thing with her dad ,she wasn't daddy's little anymore.as far as the drowning part I don't believe that,what did she do duck tape her mouth After she drown,cindey got to wake up soon an realize Casey did what she did,and god didn't set her free the twelve people did and her lawyer did god will punch her in do time there was no justice for caley she's walking free I couldnt not think to have my grandchildren around me ,they live next store to me and if I don't see them after school I'm on the phone to my son so why did she wait to find casey


While Casey was in jail a inmate told her about Biyus, the women who testified that George & her had a intimate relationship, I understand they were friends or related, is this true? Also Biyus & Casey knew they had to destroy George's character because they knew they could not control his testimony being he use to be a police officer, but Cindy, Casey & Biyus knew they can control her feelings like Casey been doing lie after lie & George was not buying into this, by attacking his character with child molesting & intimate relationships,& covering up the death of Caley.


Cindy stated that Casey used the shovel to maybe break in the shed
because it was locked again, or to cut some bamboo or something, than why would Casey ask the neighbour for a shovel why? wouldn't she ask for a hammer or knife or any other tool it just happen to be a shovel she asked for? Cindy is in real need of a total ass-kicking for being so ignorant of reality and thinking that what ever she says or however she interrupts any part of what happened before and after the trail is fact and get off her high moral ground the world according to Cindy. Maybe if George would leave Cindy maybe the truth would come out and he doesn't have to be afraid of Cindy and she can't use him as a crutch. They both now exactly what happened.
