Barbara Walters

Please Give Me Casey Anthony

But Don't Hug Me, Jose!

10/17/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, had dinner with Barbara Walters Sunday night.  She was clearly trying to butter him up for an interview with his infamous client ...  but when Jose went in for the hug, Barbara blanched.

Baez, his wife, Walters and Frank Langella (they had just gone to see his play) all dined at Orso in Manhattan for Jose's birthday. Our photog tried getting details about a possible asking price for the interview -- but no one was talking.

According to our sources, Casey isn't ready to tell her tale just yet. Clearly BW wants dibs.

When everyone says their goodbyes, and Jose goes to hug Barbara ... she shoos him away, saying, "No, no, no. Don't do it."

Clearly she didn't want TMZ getting the "money shot."

Trying to maintain some semblance of journalistic integrity. Too late, Babs.

Why in the hell would Barbara Walters want to have dinner with Bozo Baez, a con man who got off a baby killer by lying? To sit through an entire meal with this lying excuse of a lawyer must have made Barbara throw up her foie gras a little in her mouth. I have totally lost respect for her. Big Big mistake Babba Wawa!

Are you guys sure that she wants Casey Anthony? I thought she was undesirable to the media outlets since people threatened to boycott anyone who interviewed her. (Although I bet those same people would still watch it, being that they're hungry for any Casey Anthony news.)



It could be to score an interview about Jose's new client Gary Giordano, the murderer suspect in the Robyn Gardner case (the American woman who disappeared in Aruba.)

She may as well have hugged him. She already is courting his slimey ass.

I would urge all to boycott anything to do with Casey Anthony. She has proven to a total liar over and over. Who would even want to hear from her? Barbara has sunk to a new low even eating out with that "Attorney". Shame on you Barbara!
