Hopefully, now that the sentencing is over and we know that Casey Anthony will be released next week, we can all move on from this morbid fascination with this very disturbed woman’s life. The best thing that could happen would be for her to be released with no theatrics. For the media and the public to not reinforce her celebrity status by tracking her or paying for interviews and photos. For the public to leave her alone! And it would be so refreshing for the media to basically call game over and drop the coverage. But I don’t think any of this is likely to happen.
I really hope that Casey Anthony doesn’t become a media celebrity. I don’t want to hear her tell her story. She already has a record of pathological lying. Why would anyone believe anything she says at this point. Her true colors will show by the way she handles her release. If she shows up on a talk show, the circus will begin.
Wouldn’t it be great if individual and family therapy were her next steps? I’m doubting this will happen, but I can always hope.
