Will you watch it?

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/07/tv-producer-says-he-met-casey-anthony-in-palm-springs-hotel-arranged-1-million-interview.html


A television producer says he has scored the first television interview with Casey Anthony, a $1-million deal arranged when he met her in a Palm Springs hotel.

Al Taylor divulged few details about the alleged agreement, which he announced Wednesday by telephone on Dr. Drew Pinksy’s HLN show.

“I got a call early Tuesday morning, from a representative that said if you want to meet with her, be in this certain area in 15 minutes,” Taylor said on the show. “I was game. I showed up. I wasn’t for sure if I was going to meet her, and sure enough, she was there.”

Anthony, 25, was recently acquitted in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in an investigation and trial that garnered national attention.

Taylor refused to name the hotel where the meeting allegedly took place or say who had accompanied Anthony to the meeting. When pressed for photos or video proving the meeting happened, he said he wasn’t allowed to bring a camera or cellphone and was searched before speaking with Anthony.

Taylor did say, however, that Anthony was concerned about two things: The $1 million he promised her in exchange for the interview, and whether or not she’d have to take a lie detector test.

“I want to hook her up to a lie detector after we do the interview, and she was unsure about that of course, and I said, ‘Well, it helps you in the end,’” Taylor said, later adding, “I don’t think it was a deal breaker, but she definitely wasn’t that interested in doing a lie detector.”

The meeting lasted only 15 minutes, Taylor said, and he didn’t know where she went after it was over.
Taylor said he tried to explain to Anthony the financial benefits of doing the interview soon.

“The one thing I explained to her was, ‘Remember, fame is fleeting, but infamy is even more fleeting,’ and I said, ‘Look, in six weeks you’ll be worth $100,000, not a million dollars,’” he said. “I was trying to explain that we’ve got to do it now.”

Taylor is not the only person to say he’s arranging Anthony’s first interview since her acquittal.

Ohio-based Schalmo Productions has offered Anthony $5 million for an interview, a spokesman told Orlando’s FOX 35 on Thursday.

“I think it’s going to take that much for her to talk,” Jake Schalmo said.

Nope I have no desire to contribute towards their ratings, and honestly even if she took a lie detector test I wouldn't necessarily believe the results if they said she wasn't responsible for her daugter's death because sociopaths (which I firmly believe she is) can often "beat" them.

The producers are betting that they can get big bucks advertisers, and the advertisers will be betting that there are enough people out there who are willing to tune in that it will be worth their while. I imagine this show would be a tough sell to nationally known brands no matter what the projected viewership. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

I'd watch that, DF. Not going to watch CA or read any interviews w/her or anything she writes, tweets, phones, Facebooks, emails. Will not contribute a single cent to her profit. Didn't I say she'd turn up in So. Calif??

Oh boy!
Now I can buy my 1ct natural Fancy Red Octavia. :lickout: :lickout: :lickout:
Actually 1Mil may only pay for a 1/2 ct., because I'd have to buy a large red and polish it down.

I don't think there is anything more to learn about Kenny - I'm already an open book.
But for a million bucks I can make up some juicy stuff. :Up_to_something:

I'll bite. Sure I'd watch an interview. It's not going to make her rich, she has too many civil suits against her and lawyer bills to pay. Why would I watch? Just curiousity. You can't change history, what's done is done and she's a free woman. Would I believe her? Hell no. I'm curious but not stupid.

First she gets money from people in jail, and now a million dollar interview? What is WRONG with the world? I really wish she would just crawl under a rock and stay there... :nono:

No, I would not watch. There is absolutely no point in listening/reading anything she has to say. She's a liar and if anyone thinks she wouldn't lie, lie, lie, lie, lie for $1m....they're delusional.

It really makes me sick to think of her making money from all that happened. There's no way I could watch that interview.

The only justification I can think of for watching it is to write down the name of every advertiser on the show and boycott them for life for allowing her to make money from killing her child.

Re: Casey Anthony to get one million dollars for first inter

I'll watch - out of curiosity... not that it is likely to even be shown here. 99.9% of people in the UK have never heard of the case.

However - and I don't mean this in a horrible way - I'd bet that every person that bothers posting on this thread or voting will watch the interview. Why? Because they have to be interested enough to even bother posting/voting here. Even if they don't think it's a morally acceptable thing for the woman to be making this kind of money, curiosity will get the better of most of us.

I can honestly say I won't watch it, but do agree that I am curious and looking for ways to hate her more. I may read newspaper articles or watch a news segment on it...but I won't watch it. Not sure there is a difference in that, but there is to me.

Not me, Pandora. Seeing her eating up the spotlight and lying, lying would honestly make me barf on my shoes. No enlightenment or entertainment in watching Casey make up still more stories, trashing her little girl in the doing. I'd rather clean out the basement for equal fun.

Good news it's not such a big story there. That takes care of the idea of the one four-flusher who said they'd make $3 mill selling an interview in Europe -- I presume the same lack of interest on the Continent.

Saw online that Baez issued a statement last night saying he is not negotiating with anyone for any interviews at present. Since he & Casey are ethical twins, who knows if it's true. I doubt there's a huge line waiting at this door, though.

Not just no, hell no. And how is it all these media companies have this kind of money to throw away but America is so "broke"? :angryfire:
