Casey Anthony may have been acquitted in a legal court, but the court of public opinion certainly found her guilty, and she has been living a secluded life, shunned and isolated, in South Florida since her acquittal in the death of her daughter, 2-year-old Caylee Anthony. And her life of seclusion, which, many would argue, she brought upon herself, is too secluded and isolated, Anthony believes.
Casey is growing bored and starting to whine about it. And, in order to alleviate some of that boredom, she has reportedly resumed dating — but finds the field of eligible, willing men rather narrow, apparently. In fact, Anthony not only has trouble finding potential boyfriends — she has trouble finding any sort of friends at all.
Anthony feels as though she “sort of lives like an old person, on a fixed income without much going on in her life,” Yahoo News reports. And now, five years after the death of her daughter, Anthony reportedly relies on members of her legal team for both financial support and to be set up on dates
In other words, Casey Anthony may be willing to date, but it’s hard — she is bored, broke, and lonely.
No word on who, specifically, has been willing to let themselves be “set up on dates” with Casey Anthony. This is the woman, after all, who was once considered “the most hated woman in America” after she was accused, and then acquitted, in the death of her 2-year-old daughter.
BPR reports that Anthony has resumed dating, and has managed to go on at least a few dates since her surprise acquittal, but the dates have been “primarily with men she knows through her very small legal circle.”
Apparently, that’s simply not exciting enough for Casey Anthony.
“She’s bored, and she complains about boredom all the time,” the source said, in an interview with People Magazine.
With her lack of a steady job, minimal social life and narrowing love life apparently taking a toll, Anthony did make a stab at starting her own photography business, called Case Photography. However, Anthony has done “very few projects” and instead, allegedly stages “paparazzi-style photo ops” which she then tries to sell to media outlets for extra income, when she needs the money.
“She gets up each day, hangs around, checks the internet, takes some pictures, and doesn’t do much,” reported the source, who claims to be close to Anthony.
“She can’t hold a real job, and she doesn’t really make a lot of friends, for obvious reasons. When people find out about her history, they usually bail on her. She’s 30, with very few friends her age.”
Anthony’s “history,” as the source calls is, is admittedly a pretty big hurdle for any potential friend or love interest.
“She’s got enough money to live, but not enough to really do anything,” the source added.
As for family relationships, the source states that Anthony only occasionally speaks with her mother, Cindy, and doesn’t have any contact with her father, George, at all.
“She doesn’t talk to her dad at all,” the inside source said. That particular fact may be unsurprising to many. During the trial, Anthony’s father was accused by Anthony’s attorney of abusing Casey, and it was insinuated that his late granddaughter may have actually been his child. George Anthony denied the allegations.
Casey Anthony’s brother Lee is no longer in her life, either. Anthony accused Lee of molestation during her trial. He denied her claim, and has since gotten married and now has a son with his wife.
Sister Casey was not invited to the wedding.
Anthony’s 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was found dead in December, 2008, after her grandparents reported her missing five months earlier. During that time, Anthony was pictured partying while her parents believed Caylee to be missing — and Casey knew her to be dead, her little body hidden in the woods.
Defense attorneys said that Caylee drowned in the family’s swimming pool, while others believed it was a clear case of murder. Anthony was cleared of murder charges.
Recently, a former member of Casey Anthony’s defense team claimed that Anthony’s trial attorney, Jose Baez, offered Anthony legal services in exchange for sex.
Baez denied the allegation.
“I unequivocally and categorically deny exchanging sex for my legal services with Ms. Anthony. I further unequivocally and categorically deny having any sexual relationship with Ms. Anthony whatsoever. I have always conducted my practice consistent with the high ethical standards required of members of the Florida Bar. My representation of Ms. Anthony was no exception.”
The same former member of the defense team also claimed that Baez stated that Anthony was guilty of murdering Caylee.
“Baez had told me that Casey murdered Caylee and dumped the body somewhere,” he claimed.
