Lose a grandaughter, a daughter, all respect, and now a house? (what else could possibly plague this family?)

by Andrea O'Connell

George and Cindy Anthony are reportedly facing foreclosure, or so says the Orlando Sentinel, the Miami Herald and other sources.

Let me not get too cynical here, but I have to wonder it this is not just a sympathy ploy by the Anthony’s to “prove” to the naysayers that they are not profiting from Caylee’s memory? Sound far fetched?  I have no basis in fact, no plausible proof, only a gut feeling as something doesn’t feel right about this new drama in the Anthony household.

There has been a great deal of speculation that the Anthony’s have profited to the max from licensing fees, appearances, press junkets, foundations that never got off the ground, a boat to find missing children, and on and on all in the name of Caylee.  But, maybe all that was completely untrue?  Perhaps they are just poor Americans, like millions of others, suffering as a result of the global recession?  It is not surprising then, if the Anthony’s fell into the rabbit-hole, too.

I have no way of knowing what the truth is with regards to any profit-making by the Anthony’s & Company.  One may assume the Anthony’s did not profit as was speculated since their lawyer, Conway, today proffered publicly that because the home on Hopespring Drive is so tied to the memory of Caylee, the Anthony’s couldn’t bear to give it up.  Of course not, that is understandable.

So, with regards to the foreclosure, let us not forget that thousands of Florida homes are being foreclosed on with millions of people impacted.  This foreclosure is like the flu, running rampant and infecting so many in its path.  The court system in Florida is overwhelmed with foreclosure cases.  It is so bad right now, that processing foreclosure cases can take up to two years.

However, I don’t know what it is, but something about this story doesn’t feel right; I have no facts to allude to, it’s just a sense that this may be a ruse for sympathy.

I hope not.  More facts will come out about this in the coming days.

We’ll just have to stay tuned.
