Casey Anthony

I Won't Be Held Back Anymore

Casey Anthony has broken her 7-month silence ... telling CBS 5 in AZ that she's determined to move forward with her life -- and the station insists Casey wasn't paid a single cent for the interview.

The 26-year-old agreed to a phone interview from her Florida home on Friday under the condition that the reporter ONLY ask her about her bankruptcy situation.

"This is the next step towards closure for me," Anthony explained.

Anthony was also asked about a pending lawsuit filed by a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez who claimed Casey had defamed her when she told cops in 2008 that a fake nanny named "Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez" kidnapped her daughter, Caylee.

Gonzalez is suing Anthony for unspecified damages. Anthony told CBS 5 she hoped that case (and two other pending lawsuits against Anthony) would be behind her by now.

"These are the things holding me back," Anthony said. "This is the key for me to move forward."

Casey also gave the station a couple of recent photos -- showing her hanging out with her legal team back in August.

The reporter who got the interview later released a statement ... saying, "TO BE PERFECTLY CLEAR... Anthony and/or her legal team are not, have not and will not be paid or compensated in any way by me or my news organization. Nor have I personally received any financial consideration in relation to this story.”

Oh, poor her, how sad, she's struggling to move forward. At least her mother didn't kill and dump her.

Why pretend she needs ‘closure’, she’s a sociopath with no feelings for anyone but for herself. She murdered her child in a fit of rage because her mother wouldn't baby-sit then drove around for days with the dead body in her car trunk until it stunk so bad she had to ditch the car, and then she threw daughter's little body in the swamp around the corner from her house where it was torn to shreds by wildlife. Oh but she says it was only Caylee's SHELL that was devoured.
We know what you did, child-killer, it’s in the evidence and it’s all still public record... go duct tape your own nose, mouth & eyes until you die,, the same way you killed your daughter. jmo.

Just me    

She wants to move forward in her life. I hate to say this but she won't have a life. Maybe behind closed doors. There is a lot of angry people out there that will never forget. Her best chance at survival is in hiding or move out of the states but I doubt she will be safe anywhere. She don't pay her bills so who she going to pay to protect her? She got away with murder (so did OJ) karma is not pretty specially when you hurt and kill a child. Her real punishment is the after life.....
