Update! The LA Times reports that Casey Anthony has sealed a $1 million deal for a television interview. The Times’ source was a little light on details, though, so we’ll see if this pans out. Here is the link to that story.
Here’s what we posted earlier.
In an update that should shock exactly no one, TMZ reports that Jose Baez, Casey Anthony’s lawyer, ” is holed up at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, holding court with all of the major networks – to determine who will score the first interview with Casey — and big bucks are involved.”
TMZ says its sources report that NBC, ABC and CBS are all competing for the first interview and that “there is a big price tag for the interview.”
Finally, TMZ reports that NBC appears to be the most likely to nab the interview – and is paying for Baez’ hotel room.
So is HLN among the players here? Uh, maybe not. Host Nancy Grace, who racked up historic ratings during the trial, won’t even call Anthony by her name, preferring “Tot Mom” instead. Here’s a link to our interview with Grace. On the other hand Grace, who has been adamant in insisting Anthony should have been convicted, did tell us she would be interested to know “why she did such a thing.”
When Baez does seal a deal, do you think you will watch the interview with Anthony?
