Casey Anthony’s parents will break their silence to Dr. Phil during his season 10 premiere episode.

Airing Sept. 12, the interview will mark the first time Cindy and George Anthony have spoken publicly since their daughter was acquitted of murder charges in July. “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 in a release. “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.”

    He couldn’t get Casey so had to settle for Mom & Dad?

    • Cygnus

      They need the appearance money to pay off some lawyer bills.

      • TLS

        Ummmm “emmasmile”. This is not a dating website. Stay on point or go away.

    • mimi of Toronto

      No point in getting Casey – nothing that comes out of her mouth will be the truth, never has and never will. So why bother and afford the money only to hear more lies? The possiblity of getting some truth is more likely from the parents.

      • Carla

        I agree Mimi of Toronto. Problem is, Casey learned everything she knows from Mama and Papa, as Cindy illustrated on the stand when she perjured herself. The only question I have is….why did no one in this family stand up for Caylee?

      • kei22

        you won’t get the truth out of any of the anthonys, and when i used to watch Phil he is too soft on the people he should be the hardest on. this too is nothing but ratings for phil and more publicity and money for the anthonys

    • starbbycat

      I wish these parents peace – they deserve it – they have been to hell and back through this ordeal – God bless them.

  • Gary

    Dr. Phil is just a hack.

    • Alex F

      Dr. Phil is such a parasite.

      • Cygnus

        He learned from his mama, Oprah.

    • Actually

      all the concerned parties need to just go away.

    • BLT

      how in the world has dr phil been on the air for 10 freaking seasons? wtf?

      • kei22

        yes i often wonder that myself–pompas arrogant

    • starbbycat

      On first blush this seems to be a terrible thing to say, however it has come to light that Oprah’s so called experts were far from that in their own lives ie experts on relationships, money etc – because this is a tv show, the show becomes more important than truth.

  • Plump

    Time for their 60 minutes of fame.

  • Janell

    How much for the “exclusive interview”? They should donate the money to a fund for missing children.

    • Captain

      Well it’s not like any place will hire them so they probably need the money so they can…you know…eat, live in shelter, and so on.

      • ree

        I can’t say that I feel bad for them – they put themselves in that situation. It is disgusting to think that they would be making any money off of their dead granddaughter.

      • badkitty13

        Please! They just got back from vacation! I don’t know about you, but I didn’t get to frolic with dolphins this year! My vacation was spent in the back yard!

    • Jen

      Haha, me too, badkitty – the only thing I frolicked with was mosquitoes!

    • Frenchie

      They are receiving $0 for the interview BUT asked for a donation made to the charitable organization they are forming to honor Caylee, called Caylee’s Fund.
      I wonder how long before they use that money for another vacation.

      • Sammy

        They didn’t pay for the vacation they just took. Some rich guy felt bad for them and paid for them to go to the Bahama’s or wherever it was they went.

      • Cheryl

        So now Cindy and George have a charity in Caylee’s honor,where was the charilty when she was alive?
        Is this their way of trying to feel good about themselves?
        And where is Cindy’s upper lip?

      • NANJAN


    • mickey

      Actually they are getting paid nothing. They asked instead for a donation to be made to the Callie Fund.

    • kei22

      phils camp said all monies (how much we do not know will go the anthonys new scam–the caylee fund–

  • joy

    So tired of this whole family.

  • Vivi

    Please, nobody watch. These horror shows need to just go away. The entire family. Making money off of their dead grandchild. Yuck.

    • badkitty13

      AMEN!!!! Do not watch! Dr. Drew will probably get Casey and hopefully no one watches whoever interviews her!!!

  • Dicazi

    I didn’t think my opinion of “Dr” Phil could sink much lower, but I was wrong.

  • AuntieMM

    And it begins…….I’m not surprised it’s Dr. Phil and it just reinforces my loss of respect for him that began a long time ago. Give it a couple of weeks and they’ll be on TMZ spending the 250K or whatever on an island vacation. Pathetic bunch all of them.

  • Nicole

    You know you will all be watching. I am interested in hearing what they have to say. Plus I think Phil will ask them some tough questions. Like why the hell that witch lied on the stand to cover for her murderess daughter??

    • Sally

      Nicole your last word answered the question. Because she was testifying about her daughter.

      Testifying for or against someone is one thing. Testifying for or against your child? Another whole different thing.

      I believe Casey is as guilty as sin. I also believe the Anthony parents, especially the mother, were hiding things on the stand. I can’t totally blame them for doing it.

      • Nicole

        I dont care who it is..if someone killed their baby, my grand daughter I would not lie for them. That is an excuse. Cindy lied all her life to cover things. She is not a good person

      • TruthinLogic

        So in essence, we can give the family members all outs to lie on the stand? Lie to Children Services? Lie to the police? because they are family members? .So how does this permission for family to lie on the stand work with the fact that when there’s someone missing or foul play, family are the first to undergo scrutiny?

    • zuzufan

      Easy, they will keep lying, seems its a family thing..

    • abadstroller

      Not me. I won’t be watching. I used to watch Dr. Phil. I’ll read him in O Mag because his written work isn’t exploitative, but I can’t watch him anymore. More like I don’t want to actually see the wingnuts who consent to being on the show. I wish he’d class it up so it would be more like his articles in O Mag. Too bad Phil’s show can’t be a “classy” psychology show, but that wouldn’t sell ad space.

    • MCS

      You’re exactly right about people watching it. Everyone says they won’t, but I would bet that the ratings will be pretty high.

      • TLS

        You and me both

      • TLS

        That was meant for Jennifer not MCS. Sorry.

      • NANJAN

        Why would anyone waste another second on this family? they have been proven to be big fat liars, all of them, cindy, george and casey lie everytime they open their mouths.

        don’t watch these two psycho’s

        their daughter got away with murder, they know it, casey knows what she got away with AND HERE WE GO AGAIN, ANOTHER O.J.

        what is wrong with jurors today? are they that stupid?

        I am exercising my right of freedom of speech, and i know there will be a lot of people who disagree and that is the beauty of our country….

  • Jennifer

    Just one more reason I’d never watch that quack.

  • Brownie

    I’ll be skipping this one. They are ALL a**holes.

  • Jen

    Don’t be so hard on Dr. P – he needs the ad revenue to pay for his new set in the seventh circle of hell.

    • rose


  • juliax

    It’s ironic that the parents will be getting more money than Casey Anthony.

    • Cygnus

      Her book deal and movie rights will come some day.

  • LOrraine


    • Cygnus

      Boycott it on the principle that it’s the Dr. Phil Show.

  • TorontoTom

    I won’t be watching.

    • Zach

      Me neither. Shame on you, Dr. Phil.
