E! True Hollywood Story: Casey Anthony is set to air on October 19th at 10pm featuring interviews with Anthony’s former friends and former boyfriends as well as the real Zenaida Gonzalez (the poor woman caught up in the murder case when Casey Anthony used her name to create the fictional ‘Zanny The Nanny’ ). The special will also include interviews with Anthony’s former defense attorneys and journalists who covered the case.
The special aims to answer the question of just who is Casey Anthony. Anthony was accused of murdering her daughter, Caylee, but was found not guilty by a jury which led to a public outcry over the controversial verdict and threats of violence against Anthony and the jurors.
Quotes from the upcoming E! THS special:
“If you wanted to hang out [or] go party she was always down.” – Brandon Snow, Anthony’s former boyfriend
“Casey was very smart and very popular. She was someone that everyone pretty much kind of knew.” – Angel Rivera, Former Classmate of Anthony’s
“You follow someone around, let’s say 24/7, and then you only play one or two hours of their most difficult time, that does not define who that individual is. That was an unfair portrayal of her.” Dorothy Clay Sims, Defense Attorney for Anthony
“She didn’t take off any clothes; she wasn’t up on the stage stripping or anything. It was just her you know, standing around and dancing in a blue dress” – Clint House, Anthony’s friend in response to the uproar over pictures of Anthony taking part in a “hot body contest” while her daughter was missing.
“It started going down like, ‘you’re a baby killer, you killed that baby.’ They were going to kidnap my daughters and see how I like [it] and then they started saying that they [were] going to kill them and they [were] going to send them to me in pieces in a box to my house and yeah….I hate that part.” Zenaida Gonzalez, on the reaction of the public when they believed she was involved with the case.
“I think the priority should be figuring out what really happened because that’s the only way that Caylee will ever get justice. It’s not seeing [Casey] behind bars and it’s not seeing her out of jail. It’s knowing what happened and the truth.” – Michelle Bart, Former Spokesperson, George and Cindy Anthony
