Casey Anthony could get $1 million to write book about “love, life and God”

Casey Anthony wants to write an inspirational book – advice about “love, life and most important – God,” she wrote to another inmate during her three years in jail awaiting trial.

Due to the high profile of her murder trial, which was broadcast live worldwide, publishers could be expected to bid as much as $1 million in advances for such a book. Anthony was found innocent Tuesday of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. The child’s body was found in an Orlando-area swamp a month after the toddler disappeared.

Jailhouse letters that Anthony wrote while incarcerated in the Orlando County Jail in 2008 and 2009 told fellow inmate Robyn Adams that she dreamed of setting the record straight about herself through a book.

Anthony stated, “It’s a way to settle many rumors and to share my insights about love, life and most important, God. Who knows?”

How would the public react to such a tome? “Look for book burning to come back in style right around the time this thing hits the shelves – if any publisher is foolish enough to actually sign a book deal with this woman,” sneered media gadfly Perez Hilton.

Anthony’s aunt, Pamela Plesea told the morning show “Fox and Friends” that all profits for any book should be put into a fund honoring Caylee.

“I had a dream I was pregnant,” Anthony wrote in another letter. “It was like having Cays all over again (referring to daughter Caylee). I’ve thought about adopting, which even sounds weird to me saying it, but there are so many children that deserve to be loved.”

Anthony also revealed other tidbits in a story published by the British newspaper the Daily Mail, such as having her teeth whitened, being able to wear underwear “that fits” and becoming a “part of society” again after her release, as well as getting manicures and pedicures.

“I want to embrace the many joys of being a lady,” she wrote. She also referred to starting her own business, stating, “When are we going to sit on the beach, drinking cocktails and planning our future business?”

The idea that she could receive $1 million to write such a book provoked shocked disgust on the Thursday morning news shows. Anthony’s attorneys have expressed their own disgust with the media – saying that commentators convicted Anthony and led the public to believe she would be convicted. Juror Jennifer Ford told ABC News that her own consciences was clear – that there was insufficient evidence about how Caylee died much less who was responsible.

But how receptive will the public be to a book by Anthony?

“I think everybody would love to hear her story, true or not,” said Orlando attorney Richard Hornsby, a legal analyst for a local TV station. “America just wants to consume this kind of dysfunction.”

In regard to Casey Anthony, I do not think that “moderation” would be either advisable or moral.

I will never buy or read a book written by or about Casey Anthony. It grieves my heart to know a innocent baby was murdered and no one is being held responsible but then there will be judgment day. God will judge.

No, I would not be interested at all in buying her book! Instead of writing a book she needs to be reading “The Book”.

. “It grieves my heart to know a innocent baby was murdered”

It was not proven in a court of law that she was murdered. And I wonder how many people that are outraged watched the trial.

And it is a shame that all these mouths running vehemently and hands carrying signs couldn t use that energy to save innocent lives, those of the unborn! It is sad to say the least that we can not bring back Caylee but if the outrage expressed over that verdict was directed at the legal practice of abortion in our Country, then lives could be and would be saved!

No, I would not give that woman a cent for a book, movie or anything else. God knows what happened and she can’t hide the truth from him.

I am not interested in purchasing anything that would make
this woman rich. She should be concerned about who kill
her baby, if she is not the killer.

Why would anyone want to buy a book with more lies? She will continue to use people as long as it is allowed. Casey Anthony is a BLACK WIDOW. Beware of people who use this amount of energy trying to convince you how smart they are, liars are not smart. We will see more of her evil mine, just watch & listen.
