CASEY ANTHONY

NO INTERVIEWS

I NEED PROFESSIONAL HELP

7/30/2011 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony Treatment
Casey Anthony
won't be sitting down with ABC .. NBC ... CBS or any other network for at least a couple of months -- TMZ has learned Casey will be seeking professional treatment for serious mental issues instead.

Sources close to Anthony tell us ... Casey is seeking treatment for three reasons:

First, Casey now realizes that her questionable behavior when her daughter Caylee went missing back in 2008 stemmed from "obvious mental health issues."

The second reason -- Casey still needs help coping with the "obvious trauma of losing her child."

Third, Casey spent nearly three years in solitary confinement in a Florida jail ... where she spent 23 hours a day in a 4x9 foot cell ... all while facing murder chargers. Our source, directly connected to Casey, tells us, "It messed with her head."

We're told Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, will continue to field offers on behalf of Casey ... and when she's healthy, Anthony will have the final word on where and how her story will be told.

The only thing Casey is really guilty of is having a mental meltdown and not immediately reporting the death of her child, much thanks to her ex homicide police officer father who had drummed fear into her from all those years of sexual abuse. Murder was never proven. As for making money from this situation, EVERYONE has been making money in one way or another, from products being sold on ebay, to leaches like Nancy Grace and all the network rating wars, etc to mags like TMZ and others. If it were not for the media and public attention in this trial, Casey could have left jail and slipped quietly back into a semi-normal life. That's impossible so don't blame her if there are money offers floating around for her story. It is because of the same media that she needs to make big money in the first place just so she can live a half way decent life. Please stop with the jealousies folks, because that's all it really is. Whether one agrees or not, the reality is that Casey was found not guilty and deserves to live again. Personally I agree with the decision and wish her the best. I agree so much with it, that I created my own little page on facebook to show moral support to Casey: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/I-Support-Casey-Anthony/119982911424892?sk=info I mainly did this because I felt sickened to my stomach as an American to see such an outpouring of hate directed towards this one young woman, who has become an iconic symbol for anything and everything that is wrong in our society. She is "safe" to hate.. pretty, young, white and from a middle class family. Most of the hate is really not about Casey. It's about everything from the failing economy to feeling powerless to stop massive crime to even personal problems in our everyday lives. I doubt anyone is actually listening to me but just thought I would share in case.. peace.

So I guess therapy now includes being trained for a few months on how not to slip during an interview and say what really happened. Baez is such a s***bag.

There's a big typo in the last word, it reads "told", should be "sold".

Casey Anthony was thrilled when she "lost" her child; that's why she was out celebrating for 31 days. No one wants to hear Casey's "story," now or in a couple of months when she's "healthy," because if her lips are moving, she's lying. Her lawyer hired a PR expert, and this is the latest "story" that the three of them cooked up to blame "mental health issues" for her selfish behaviour and to attempt to gain sympathy from the public. They think they're going to unveil a brand new, spanking clean Casey Anthony to the public, we're just going to swallow it all whole, and they'll start earning millions together, laughing all the way to the bank. No way, Jose.

This seems to be a ploy for Casey Anthony to try to avoid those civil lawsuit depositions and trials themselves. They will plead that she is not mentally well and cannot undergo such strenuous examination and ordeal of a lawsuit now. However, she was examined for several days, during her murder trial, by several psychiatrists. They all pronounced her mentally well and fit and able to participate in her trial. Those examinations will be brought up when she and Baez try to squirm out of all those civil lawsuits pending against her.

The Casey Anthony you saw cussing out her parents, telling her brother she was not going to let her mother see Caylee because Casey is a "spiteful bitch," that's the real Casey Anthony, not this pitiful shadow of a beaten woman who has been in jail waiting murder trial for killing her daughter. Nobody should be deceived.

Complete crap. Her and her s*** bag lawyer finally realized that "America" won't pay out. The back lash against any network who did would negate the profit from ratings. But...they know that if Casey admits that she's "sick" and "seeks help", all while taking a bit of a hiatus, the American public(where poltical correctness has gone wild)will suck it up. BARF.

Where has this "trama of losing a child" been hiding all this time?

There has never been ONE mention of her mental status, or "trama from losing a child".

Someone who doesn't shed a single tear over the death of a child can suffer no such "trama".

Ok these bottom feeders don't know what else to do to get money! This is a ploy to get sympathy from the public. She's NOT getting any sympathy here.... She's a piece of trash. Baez realizes that he's not going o make any money so he's buying time til things cool down. The only help she needs is the electric chair for what she did to her daughter. She should commit suicide and do humanity a favor.

I doubt Casey or Baez can figure out how she can even participate in an interview. She didn't talk during the trial. If she talks now, everything she says will be used against her in those civil suits. If she tells lies, most of the public knows her story well enough to recognize the lies. If she tells the truth, she will incriminate herself, probably. So she really has no alternative but to play the victim once again, hoping to win public sympathy. Do you think everyone will forget a murdered child, who bones were found in garbage bags, in a swamp, gnawed on by animals?
