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.”

Boycott this station how dare they interview her asking about her life after what shes done. I have no doubt they paid her I doubt she would do any interview without getting paid. Absolutely disgusting and she wants to "move forward" well your poor daughter you murdered never got to "move forward". If she really didn't murder her daughter she would be still to this day be trying to find out who killed her not saying shes "moving forward". Shes a evil, vile, **** and shame on you TMZ for putting this sick, twisted bitch as a celebrity on your site. Shes infamous for killing her poor daughter she is not a celebrity.

I've said it before. The only person you should be mad at is the prosecutor. He got greedy and wanted to be the badass the put Casey to death, but he needed unreasonable doubt. But there was, if he just didn't get greedy and not try to get the spotlight, and went for life, then she would be sitting in a jail cell right now. So **** the persecute. This is what happens when you get greedy. The justice system worked, he was just stupid in thinking the jury would based on emotion and not evidence and reasonable doubt. They did job. If we rule on emotion and not blindly then that makes the justice flawed.

Crazy b*tch still wants to be famous.
The only thing holding her back is 'her civil suits' Um, no what's holding you back is the fact you killed your daughter and nobody wants a baby killer around.
