Nancy Grace, 'DWTS'Last night Nancy Grace had more on her mind than just her low scores on 'Dancing With the Stars.' Talking to reporters backstage afterward she was more preoccupied with the guilty verdict that had been handed down to Conrad Murray just a few hours before. And, being Nancy Grace, she had a zinger or two to let us know how she really feels about it.

"Well, once I found out it was a guilty verdict that's really all I needed to know," she told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "I only wish it had been murder one, because murder one deserves life behind bars, not four years."

Discussing Murray's future prospects, Grace told 'THR': "When he gets out, I got news for him ... God's gonna get him. He's gonna be mis-er-able. He can run but he can't hide. Hey! He and Casey Anthony can have a tea party in four years."

George Anthony on 'Dr. Phil' 'Dr. Phil''s (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) interview with Cindy and George Anthony continued Wednesday, and George gave his thoughts about what he thinks might have happened to his granddaughter Caylee. Specifically, he said he does not believe the theory presented by his daughter's defense team that Caylee may have drowned.

"I don't believe that Caylee drowned," George said. "I just don't believe that. I believe there's something else that happened to her." He went on to say he thinks it's possible that Casey, or someone with her, gave Caylee too much of some substance that caused her to fall asleep and never wake up.

Dr. Phil pressed him for what Caylee might have been given "too much" of. "Possibly some kind of drug or something like that. I mean, there's been speculation about Xanax or whatever it might be," he replied.

Cindy Anthony explains Casey's behavior on 'Dr. Phil'Casey Anthony's mother Cindy offered a new explanation for her daughter's history of erratic behavior in an interview on 'Dr. Phil' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). She acknowledged that Casey's behavior indicated instability, and said she thought it might have had something to do with the seizures Casey suffered, both before and after her arrest.

Defending her daughter, Cindy said Casey "was an awesome mother." Dr. Phil McGraw disagreed. "Other than the fact that she wasn't providing for her daughter," he said, "she was manufacturing friends, playmates, playdates, nannies, all of those sort of things, which to me, is highly unstable behavior."

Cindy pointed to Casey's seizure in November of 2007 as a possible cause. In answer to Dr. Phil's question, Cindy said that her daughter had been medically evaluated but the tests had turned up nothing. "They kept her in the hospital for three days and worked her up and didn't find anything," she said.

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

by PopEater Staff, posted Jul 9th 2011 10:00AM
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."

Casey Anthony Juror No. 3: 'Not Guilty Doesn't Mean Innocent' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 7th 2011 2:36AM
Jennifer Ford, Casey Anthony Trial Juror, 'Primetime Nightline'With the prosecution failing to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, the jury in the Casey Anthony presented the most controversial "Not guilty" verdict since O.J. Simpson's trial.

On 'Primetime Nightline: Casey Anthony: Not Guilty' (Wed., 10PM ET on ABC), they had one of the jurors, Jennifer Ford, in the trial on to talk about the verdict, and her feelings about the case.

When asked why they declared Anthony not guilty, she stated, "There wasn't enough evidence. If you're going to charge someone with murder, don't you have to know how they killed someone, or why ... where/when/why/how? Those are important questions that were not answered."

But a verdict in a court of law on very specific charges is one thing. When asked if she thought Anthony might have killed her daughter, Ford replied, "I feel like she had something to do with it." But she wouldn't speculate further.

Nancy Grace's Coverage of the Casey Anthony Trial Posts Record Ratings for HLN

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 6th 2011 6:30AM
Nancy GraceNancy Grace's outraged disbelief at the verdicts in the Casey Anthony trial led many to question if her head would, actually, explode on-air. It did not. However, her stunned reaction -- "somewhere out there, the devil is dancing tonight" -- did set the Twitterverse afire.

Grace has been covering the story on her eponymous primetime show since two-year old Caylee Anthony was reported missing in mid-2008.

Her intense, often controversial, scrutiny of the case produced record ratings for CNN's Headline News and may also have influenced the other TV networks' coverage as they acted in the wake of her escalating ratings.

'The Wrap' reports that Grace's single-minded pursuit of the "truth" about Caylee Anthony's death put HLN in second place during June, the 29-year-old channel's best ratings month ever. And it also helped the network challenge Fox News in the coveted adults aged 25-54 demographic during primetime.

Judge Judy and Judge Belvin Perry
The ink is barely dry on the jury's verdict, but already speculation's growing as to what happens next for the main players in the Casey Anthony trial. Many pundits agree that Judge Belvin Perry may have a second career waiting for him as a television judge. Could he be the next Judge Judy?

Fox news commentator Joey Jackson said, "I can certainly see him becoming the next big TV judge."

After months of court proceedings, on Tuesday, Perry confirmed the jury's verdict that Anthony was not guilty of first degree murder -- a verdict that visibly outraged the celebrity Twitter community. But Perry's shocking ruling, although an unpopular one, may only further catapult him into the celebrity judge world. Guilty or not guilty, Perry stuck to his guns throughout the trial, keeping attorneys in line and holding them accountable, dealing with even the craziest aspects of the case with an even temperament and being patient, yet rigid, in moving the case forward.

Reactions to the Casey Anthony 'not guilty' verdict on 'The Talk'It was a day of mixed emotions Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), as the panel reacted live to the verdict from the Casey Anthony trial. The room was filled with nervous anticipation in the moments before the verdict, as Julie Chen made the executive decision to stay with the show instead of breaking to coverage, joking that she would discuss any fallout from the decision with her husband, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves, at the dinner table.

But the breezy tone quickly changed as she reported the shocking verdict -- the studio audience gasped and then grew quiet as the "not guilty" verdicts came in on the separate murder, manslaughter and child abuse charges. Leah Remini, bewildered, threw her hands up in the air and almost walked off the set. Chen herself appeared close to breaking down at one point, leaving Holly Robinson Peete to finish reading the remaining counts.
