'Jerry Springer' Execs Say They Never Made Monetary Offer to Casey Anthony

Casey Anthony, Jerry SpringerAfter reports began to swirl that 'The Jerry Springer Show' was offering Casey Anthony $1 million to make an appearance with her family, the show's execs are now saying that the supposed monetary offer is completely false.

"There is absolutely no truth to this story whatsoever," 'Jerry Springer' spokesman Gary Rosen said in a statement. "'The Jerry Spring Show' has not made any monetary offer to Casey Anthony and her family to appear on the program, nor will we."

The rumored appearance would have marked the Tot Mom's first public words following her first degree murder charge acquittal. Original reports detailed that the show presented the offer to Anthony's legal team on Friday morning, an offer that would then be taken to Anthony and her family -- who supposedly had to appear on the show with her in order for the deal to go through.

"The offer was made to Casey's defense team Friday," a now-incorrect source told Star magazine. "They are interested. The should would get huge ratings. The family will be presented with the offer shortly."

But even before the alleged appearance was squashed, we had a difficult time believing that the deal would go through if it meant Casey's father, George Anthony, had to be present. During her trial, Anthony's defense argued that the way she dealt with her daughter Caylee's death was brought on by her own early childhood molestation at the hands of her father. Anthony's legal team also made the case that she did not immediately report her daughter's death at the instruction of her father, who 'intimidated' her. It is unclear, after Anthony's not guilty verdict shocked people across the nation, whether she will be living with her parents following her July 17 release from jail.

With a potential civil trial still on the table, many believe that making a talk show appearance almost immediately after her criminal trial would have only further cast Anthony as one of America's 'most hated women.' But, at the same time, a million dollar payday may have been exactly what Anthony needed to reclaim her life -- a life that will forever be clouded by her daughter's still-ambiguous death.

Given the fact that she is a consummate liar, I don't understand why any program would entertain the idea of giving Casey Anthony a podium. Additionally, if they do, who is going to believe anything that comes out of her mouth? Ditto if she writes a book or if someone does a movie about her life. One other thing: if she does any appearances to tell her story, won't she be asked how Caylee died over and over again? I doubt very much that she wants to tell anyone what really happened!
