I recorded the Dr. Phil interview with the Anthony’s today. Anxious to see it, I sat on the couch to watch it and…. fell asleep about ten minutes into the show.
From what I saw, Cindy Anthony is still paddling down da’ Nile river.
Like her daughter insisted on the Nanny story with clenched jaw determination; Cindy has a strangle-hold on denial.
I heard more excuses than ever. I truly believe that Cindy cannot live with the idea that her daughter is capable of murder. Maybe she accepts the truth privately? Otherwise how can she and George stay together given the fact they are on totally different wave lengths on this issue. You would think there is incredible tension between the two. That’s why I wonder if, privately Cindy knows what’s true, but publicly, she must deny it to save face.
Cindy blamed seizures, postpartum schizophrenia, and a possible a brain tumor as excuses for Casey’s behavior. I kid you not. She said brain tumor.
Of course, with all the excuses, she is also telling us that she knows Casey is responsible. If she believed Casey had no part in Caylee’s murder, there would be no need for excuses, right?
I wonder if it was Cindy who came up with the idea, when Casey was pregnant, that the bulge in Casey’s tummy was a tumor, not a pregnancy? When Casey was appearing pregnant, her brother Rick said that Cindy said to him, and I paraphrase, “Casey is not pregnant. She’d have to have sex to be pregnant.”
In the ten minutes of the interview that I was able to see, it seemed to me that George was more forthcoming with the truth- though he did side-step – he attempted to lay it out there.
George was also quite rigid, I thought. Almost cold.
Cindy was pleasant, her blue eyes are lovely, but that constant deception that comes out when Cindy speaks, even though she repeats phrases like: “To be honest,” or “honestly” or “truthfully,” she is not being honest. She is saying what she wants to believe, nothing beyond her fairy tale idea of what occurred.
Maybe she needs da’ Nile river to maintain her sanity?
The second installation of the show is tomorrow. I’ll try to watch both, but can’t promise I won’t fall asleep!
