We all knew the day would come, but quite honestly we would have thought Barbara Walters would have gotten this one. Casey Anthony’s parents, Cindy and George, will be making their first televised sit down interview with Oprah’s former protégé, Dr. Phil.
The couple will break their silence in an interview that will air on September 12. It will mark the first time the parents of the most controversial tot mom in recent history since their daughter was acquitted of murder charges just last month.
In a press statement, Dr. Phil says no questions will be off limits while he grills Cindy and George, who have been of accused of covering up the truth about their granddaughter Caylee’s death in order to protect their daughter Casey.
“Cindy and George have suffered a horrific loss with the untimely death of their granddaughter Caylee,” Dr. Phil says in his press release.
The statement continues, “Have these attacks been warranted, or not? I looked them straight in the eye and asked them some very tough questions. Despite living under a ‘media microscope’ for years, THEIR story has never really been told.”
Do you think Dr. Phil is the right person to be doing the first interview with Cindy and George? Will you be tuning in on September 12?
