Casey Anthony disappeared from the spotlight and went into hiding after being acquitted in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, last year. Now, the person who many consider to be the most hated woman in America is ready to speak out.
Early yesterday, Anthony and her lawyer, Cheney Mason, spoke with CNN’ Piers Morgan in an exclusive interview, where she insisted that the jury who acquitted her of Caylee’s death got it right.
“There’s obviously several misconceptions. Obviously, I didn’t kill my daughter,” Morgan recalled Anthony saying in the phone interview. “She said that very firmly.”
“If anything, there’s nothing in this world I’ve ever been more proud of, and there’s no one I loved more than my daughter. She’s my greatest accomplishment,” Anthony said, according to Morgan.
Morgan went on to ask Anthony in the interview if she was attempting to market her story to make money off of it, and Anthony said: “”I’m not making gazillions dollars [selling her story]. I don’t give an [expletive] about money. … I may have in past. … I was a stupid kid. I am 26 now. I have gone through hell.”
Anthony admitted in the interview that she handled herself poorly in interviews during the murder trial, saying that she came off as unsympathetic.
“I’ve looked back at some of the interviews [I] did and the way I’ve come across,” she told Morgan. “It’s horrible. It looks absolutely horrible. And I’m ashamed in many ways of the person that I was because even then that wasn’t who I am.”
