Grandparents of murdered child Caylee Anthony snub Oprah Winfrey, show cancels what was to be exclusive interview

| | Comments (29) | TrackBacks (0)

A sit-down interview with the grandparents of murdered two-year-old Caylee Anthony and Oprah Winfrey isn't going to happen as planned.

George and Cindy Anthony were slated to head to Chicago to talk with Winfrey in what was being plugged as one of three exclusive TV interviews Winfrey scored for the month of May.

However, after the Anthonys agreed to do a sit down with "The Early Show" on CBS, Winfrey's reps pulled the interview.

"Based on the Anthonys' decision to appear on other programs, we have decided not to move forward with their interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show at this time," a statement from Winfrey's show said.

The interview on Winfrey's show would have been the first time the Anthony's had been interviewed since their granddaughter's remains were found.

I watch everyday keeping up with the Caylee Anthony story. I have fallen in love with this little girl. She deserved life and had it taken away for a dumb reason. I blame the mother. It seems like all she wanted to do was party, party, party and would of rather had Cayleee gone so she could party more. Thats what I think. I'm with this story till the end. When I first heard I stayed with it once they thought they found her remains I cried and cried. I'm here for her family and always will be. I know what is wrong and this has crossed the line. I love kids and no kid should ever deserved to have their life taken away from them so early. CAYLEE REST IN PEACE!!! I love you!

So what she was just going to do it for publicity?? I don't think it's fair to do that but hey whateve.

Thank goodness someone in the media finally has the tack and class, plus common sense of decency not to allow the Anthony's to play them media circus and mind games that they all have become so accustomed too!!!!

Good for the Grandparents of Caylee Anthony and Oprah should be very ashamed of "scoring" interviews with heart-broken families especially familes of missing or murdered children. Shame on you oprah SHAME!

Who wrote this headline? You have it reversed. If Oprah cancelled she is the snubber, not the snubbee.

I would not give them the opportunity to say that they can't answer this question and they can't answer that question because they are waiting for trial.

This entire family seems "off"! There seems to be something mentally wrong with all of them.

It's somebody else's fault? are you kidding? after one month Caylee dissapeared and the mother didn't called the police? Where did she found the nanny connection, from day one? where did she meet her? This story she could only believe her, she is a Psycho!

Thank you Oprah,why on earth you would waste you time with the Anthony's. We all know she Casey,is guilty,because of all the stuff they have on her. God Bless You, Mary

I hope the media will stop playing into this drama, and let justice take it's course. I have no interest in seeing this couple on Television, and especially on Oprah Winfrey. My belief is that they are seriously deluded, and being being manipulated, not only by the media but by their daughter, and her defense team. They desperately want to save their daughter, and return to a normal life. That is unlikely to happen, even at the off chance that the daughter is found non- guilty.

They are in serious need of grief counseling, and on going spiritual counseling (IMHO). I am not against anyone supporting their child, but they are making themselves the objects of derision, and ridicule. I believe that somewhere inside they know what happened, but have decided that their entire family is being victimized. They consider their daughter Casey a victim as well.

What scenario do the Anthony's envision if Casey is found not guilty, and returns home. What will life be like in that house? She has stolen from her frail grandmother, and her best friend (no dispute about that). She has lied about working, and even her pregnancy. What will life be like for the Anthony's as they age, and are dependent on Casey to take care of them? These are the questions that I would be asking, if I were in their shoes.

As a crime victim myself I am glad you pulled the plug on this one. Why give these Parents a platform to explain all the evidence away with their delusion of the truth. They are in denial and thus the reason their daughter (tot mom)is the way she is. What about Caylee who is standing up for Caylee?

Had you given them the interview I would have turned the TV off.

This Goes to show the mentality of these people, they are not capable of making the right choices

I don't consider the Anthony's being cancelled by Oprah a snub by them to her I think she is ticked because she is not getting the exclusive so she cancelled them, that is called her snubbing them.

dear oprah,
my name is ebony moore i attend school at sampson middle in sampson county north carolina and i am in the 7th grade . In my school for our last 9 weeks we have 2 write a research paper on a person inspires us the most so i chose u and i no that u r very busy but i would like 2 no if u could come to my school and help me present my paper to my teacher and my fellow classmates the reason i chose u is because u inspire others to b themselves an u inspired me 2 do the rite thing thats y u r my hero.!!!!!!:]

I think perhaps all the grandstanding the grandparents are doing is sad.
They know their daughter is guilty.
I cannot imagine the complete and total heartbreak at loosing a grandaughter and a daughter, especially this way.
The circimstantial evidence is overwhelming.
I understand when you feel helpless you do anything at the moment to emotionally fight back just to survive.....

I think emotionally and legally it is better NOT to do the show.

The death penalty is involved now and running around doing talk show is NOT going to help...unless they figure they can later appeal because the media did not lend itself to a fair trial.
I really wanted to hear the show, but it is better that it is cancelled.

Thank G-D... I would have lost some respect if Lady O would have spent any time on these con-artist...leave them to springer where these urban rednecks belong...and now Cindy claiming she was suicidal... what a huge lie.....Cindy is far too narcissistic to injure herself in any way...:"head-casey" learned well from Cindy...this whole sick mess was set into motion by Cindy when she vetoed the adoption ...this has always been about Cindy and her make believe good image...her patsy hubby(sorry George) 2 . 5 kids and a white picket fence on hope spring dr.....Casey was the family lose cannon...Casey & Cindy have been battling for control since day one...her getting knocked up gave Cindy's pretty family image a black eye...the only way she could going so far as to lie to her own brother that a 3rd trimester Casey was simply bloated with female problems...great medical skills Cindy..the only way for Cindy to spin the unplanned pregnancy was to paint Casey was a noble single mother....in Cindy's head adoption was admitting a giant crack in her pretty picture...Casey is guilty....but Cindy has blood on her hands too...Cindy gets to wake every day knowing Carlee would be alive and well in loving adopted arms....had she not overridden what may have been Casey's only good idea...may G-D forgive these wretched people.

Oprah,

Thank you so much for cancelling the Anthony interview. I think they have forgotten that a child has been murdered and they need to stand by their grandchild.

They are just spinning and I am glad that you saw through it.

Thanks again

I am sooooooo glad that Oprah will not interview these two liars. They have made a fool of every interviewer on TV and Oprah has too much class to put herself through this. I don't know anyone who believes these two fool grandparents and their lawyer. The daughter is a liar and everybody can tell where she learn her manipulative tactics and technics. George and Cindy can lie without a wink and Casey too. It is so embarrasing that every show is fighting to interview the parents and partners in crime of this horrific crime. We don't respect or appreciate our children and they are disposable, but we give time and ears to these people that are benefiting from this beautiful child who lived two years of horror. Good for Oprah!!

Whew...O dogged a whole lot a bad karma...typical greedy jerks...as for cindy' revealing she considered suicide..what a huge lie.....Cindy is far too narcissistic to injure herself in any way...:"head-casey" learned well from Cindy...this whole sick mess was set into motion by Cindy when she vetoed the adoption ...this has always been about Cindy and her make believe good image...her patsy hubby(sorry George) 2 . 5 kids and a white picket fence on hope spring dr.....Casey was the family lose cannon...Casey & Cindy have been battling for control since day one...her getting knocked up gave Cindy's pretty family image a black eye...the only way she could going so far as to lie to her own brother that a 3rd trimester Casey was simply bloated with female problems...great medical skills Cindy..the only way for Cindy to spin the unplanned pregnancy was to paint Casey was a noble single mother....in Cindy's head adoption was admitting a giant crack in her pretty picture...Casey is guilty....but Cindy has blood on her hands too...Cindy gets to wake every day knowing Carlee would be alive and well in loving adopted arms....had she not overridden what may have been Casey's only good idea...may G-D forgive these wretched people.

Cindy Anthony claims to have considered suicide in July 2008. This has to be a lie. She was supposedly under the impression at that time Caylee was still alive. As the controller she is, and a grandmother, there is NO WAY she would have done so thinking Caylee would be coming home!

Also, why did she wash Casey's jeans? She knew they were incriminating.

There is much more to this lady!

I applaud Oprah for pulling the plug on these people. They are on a propaganda run, using Oprah, and any other media, as means to lie. They are representing themselves as victims, when they are actually profiting off of the child's murder, and will do anything to obfuscate the truth about how their daughter is responsible.

Thank you Oprah for removing this forum for their deceit and murderous lies.

Oprah, you know good and well with all your heart they did not need to be on your show! They are just as guilty pretending they don't know what happened when they do! All they got left is their lying daughter! They want to believe her so bad! When who can kid theirselves, she did it because she is selfish and wanted to be free! I love my kids to, but no matter what right is right! You don't get a free pass for being stupid and selfish!!!!!

If they were to come on in the future I would question if Lee Anthony was the father of Caylee. This family appears to be SO dysfunctional because we see it fold out as time goes on. In my heart, I feel, that Lee Anthony knows something but is holding back.

I am not a "fan" of Oprah because lets be honest, she is all about the money. She doesn't have Caylee's best interest at heart. Her show was cancelled because the Anthony's were doing other shows and Oprah wanted to be "exclusive"...so that her show would get better ratings.

Oprah really did the right thing by denying that damn senile Cindy on her show all she wanted to do was to go on there and act a gotdamn fool and bring up all that crap and lies that her own bastard daughter told her about caylee that was completely bull and Nancy Grace was right Oprah dosen't want to here all that crap at all .......THE HELL WITH YOU CNDY ANTHONY!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, its obvious why they are not doing Oprahs show, she does not compensate her guests. Also Oprah as well as Nancy Grace are not into Soft Ball interviews, they are people of integrity and would not promote a self serving interview and promote a murderer. However empathetic they may be with Mr. and Mrs. Anthony, these women recognize that there is a murder victim and she was a 2 year old baby. Thank you for your time.

I think Oprah showed real stamina in declining the interview with the Anthonys. Their motives for these interviews are not of respectful terms, not to Caylee anyway. It appears that they are after publicity for them, not for the benefit of Caylee but of the daughter. If they are so adamant about items being transferred through the media, why are they not keeping a low profile? The more comments they make, the worse it looks for them. It would appear to make more sense to just keep quiet now. Leave it alone, let the law process what they have and wait for trial. Instead of crying Caseys innocence, they need to shut up. Cindy has made herself very visible in the media, she has taken over the whole show and this is miserable of her. It is obvious that George is scared to say what he knows as fact. This is what drove him so close to suicide, he knows the truth. I just wish that the grandparents would stay out of the news and leave this alone. Again, Oprah is much too smart to fall for their fame game. I had hoped that she would cancel her interview with them and was pleased to hear that she did.

Good for you Oprah , we do not want to see more lies coming out of these people mouth .
