Casey Anthony's Parents -- $250,000 Doesn't Cut It!!!

7/26/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The network bidding war over key interviews in the Casey Anthony case has gone into the stratosphere ... because TMZ has learned a syndicated talk show was laughed at with a bid of $250,000 for Casey's PARENTS!!!

The bidding has gone crazy ... we're hearing the bidding for a Casey interview was over $1.5 million.

Now ABC News has just released a statement, saying it will no longer pay for photos and video in exchange for interviews.

The announcement comes days after TMZ published a story ... that Casey's lawyer, Jose Baez, was holed up in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, taking bids from NBC, ABC and CBS.  As we reported, Baez was in the Hotel bar Thursday night, discussing strategy with famed lawyer Mark Geragos.

Our sources say all three networks were offering the same deal -- they would pay a fortune to license photos and video from Casey. Short story -- it's a dishonest way of saying they don't pay for interviews.

We're told NBC -- which paid for Baez' hotel room -- was leading the pack in the Casey bidding war, even though the Network denied it was offering any money for an interview -- which is technically correct.

In its statement, ABC says, "We can book just about anyone based on the strength of our journalism."

Sure they can.

Just when I think the Anthonys can't get any more loathsome and disgusting, they do. And the networks fighting over them are bottom feeders.

Has any one thought of the fact that Casey ia a LIAR? She wouldn't recognize the truth for any amount of money. Who really cares what she or any one has to say the fact is a baby is dead and a killer has gone free.

It is disgusting and weird, BUT those people are dirt poor from this whole horrible situation. I'm guessing they'll never find work again. They didn't kill Caylee. I don't know... toughy!

It would be blood money. It is so wrong.

How about the NETWORKS all give the $$$ they are willing to spend on any interview to the Missing Children groups to help find those children whose parents did the right thing and yet suffer because there are no resources to find them.

Bottom line...she was not convicted...think what you will...but she wasn't...and now she has to try and live a life basically in danger and in hiding...I would be looking for a payday too...for plastic surgery...name change...hell maybe a new country to call home.

Casey Anthony is seeking mental therapy now. Y ? not because she was in solitary confinement for 3 years. She had no problems during her trial. She needs mental therapy because she knows she had everything to do with the murder of the little girl.I will not say her little girl or daughter because a mother loves,protects and cherishes their children.It appears not even to bother her a bit that the girl is gone.Karma what goes around comes around remember that

Casey Anthony doesn't need any protection. She is freely roaming the streets in Ohio. How can she get death threats when no one knows where she is. Another bunch of BS from her attorneys trying to keep her in the spotlight so everyone can profit off the death of Caylee. He should be ashamed.

So someone finally told Casey that her lying is a direct result of schizophrenia, I have a sister who is schizoid and until she was diagnosed we thought she was just a habitual liar. People like this cannot tell the truth from reality, so getting help for is appropriate, hopefully she'll take her medicine as prescribed.

I cannot believe that they actually want to pay her to do an interview. People should be throwing her out, not wanting to hear her side off the story. She killed her kid then got away with it, that's the story. This country needs to stop letting killers get away with it.

Why would anyone pay to speak to any of these people. They have all proven at the trial that they are ALL LIARS. No truth would be spoken by any of them. What a waste of money. Give the money to people who really need it and are living an honest life. Losing there jobs because of the economy. Theses people will use the money to feed thier children because they care about them. Why give a Mother or Grandparents money to lie about how Caylee died. These people did not care about her. They couldn't even tell the truth to give Caylee justice. Very sick and twisted family.

I don't blame them if they went for the money. Most people in that situation would if it was offered.

I think all of them profiting off this childs death is repulsive and makes me want to puke. Whatever network televises that interview, I will vow to never watch that network again, theres enough channels on my TV that I don't have to watch that network and I have alot of friends and family that feels the same way. So whoever it is, may suffer more than they realize from this. They have no idea how the nation feels about this woman or her parents, but especially Casey Anthony, they are thinking that if they let it die down a little it will be ok, I think they are going to find out different. I know I WILL NOT BE WATCHING IT.

I wonder:

With Casey Anthony being held up in a multi-million dollar estate - did she give any thought today as to her daughters birthday? Or was she too busy living it up in the good life? No doubt, if she did think about her daughter today - it was how she got away with Murder! The B**ch makes me sick!

George And Cindy Anthony At Caylee Memorial: ‘It’s Hard To Come Here’George And Cindy Anthony At Caylee Memorial: ‘It’s Hard To Come Here’

Tuesday would have been Caylee Marie Anthony’s sixth birthday, and to honor her memory her grandparents George and Cindy Anthony attended a public memorial for their beloved granddaughter.

George spoke to reporters and well-wishers at the site where little Caylee’s remains were found, saying: “This is the first time I’ve been here in so long. It’s hard to come here,” according to the Orlando Sentinel.

PHOTOS: Casey Anthony Released From Jail

The memorial was held on Suburban Street, just blocks from the Anthony home where Casey and Caylee lived with George and Cindy, and was organized by the group Bring Kids Home, who are working to build a memorial in the little girl's memory.

George said that he would support a memorial if it was done tastefully and was focused on helping find other missing children, but he did say he hasn’t seen the plans yet. He and Cindy hugged mourners and participated in releasing Caylee’s favorite color purple balloons in her memory.

PHOTOS: Casey Anthony's Secret Wild Life

Casey Anthony, 25, was acquitted of murdering her then 2-year-old daughter, who her defense attorneys claimed drowned in the family pool in a tragic accident on June 16, 2008.

Both of Anthony's parents testified multiple times during the emotional murder trial of their daughter, and since her release have not seen or spoken with her according to their lawyer.

Geo and Cycho Cyndi were making money while the kid was missing. Donations of cash, goods, and services poured in. Everybody wanted a piece of the pie. That Jack ass Leonard Padilla even bailed her out for a week just to get his 15 minutes. He claimed a hundred divers would search for Caylee. I think two showed up. All that changed when Caylee's remains were found, found again, found once more, and picked up with a stick and found for the last time.

I doubt either one of them has worked in years. Where they get their money is a mystery to me. Maybe Cyndi was hoping for a piece of the pie if she claimed the searches. Maybe someone passed that very message.

A lot of "ifs" and "maybeys" in America's most ****** up family, minus one.

Justice for Caylee
