Mean Betty: Would You Read a Book By Casey Anthony?
Caylee Anthony’s mother has some “insights” on life she’d like to share!
Dear ones, Mean Betty generally prefers to drool over photos of Jon Hamm in a suit (or Hugh Jackman in a bathing suit) (or Lindsay Lohan in a bikini + ankle monitor), than follow “real life” news … but the lurid Casey Anthony trial, alas, has taken up much of Mean Betty’s celebrity ogling time of late.
And now Mean Betty reads that Casey Anthony just may enlighten the world with nothing less than an advice book! Delightful!
The Hollywood Reporter reports:
In jailhouse letters penned by Anthony while she was in Orlando County Jail in 2008 and 2009, she expressed dreams of setting the record straight about herself via the written word. She wrote, “It’s a way to settle many rumors and to share my insight about love, life and most important — God.”
Why, Mean Betty can think of no other person she’d rather get insights about life and GOD from than Casey Anthony! Perhaps Casey will share with us her philosophy on tattoos, and just the right moment to get one. For example, when one’s baby girl has been dead / missing for weeks … why, that’s the perfect time to imprint “Bella Vita” — Beautiful Life! — on one’s body!
ABCNews.com has other excerpts of Casey’s letters, in which she reveals longing for some of those little things one misses when one is imprisoned on suspicion of murdering one’s daughter.
“I can’t wait to get my teeth whitened and to use my regular toothbrush/toothpaste/shampoo, conditioner,” she wrote. “Color on my toesies and acrylic nails — yes please … I want to embrace the many joys of being a lady.”
Ah yes! The joys of trashy acrylic nails, white teeth and being a lady!
“And girl,” Casey wrote to her jailhouse pen pal, “I could use a day at Target myself. Just to walk around the store, to be a part of society. I want to go grocery shopping.”
Good luck with that “being part of society” thing, Casey. Mean Betty is sure the world will welcome you with open arms.
Finally, Mean Betty will leave you with this last tidbit from the Hollywood Reporter:
Anthony’s letters to fellow inmate Robyn Adams also reveal her desire to have more children. She wrote, “Let’s get pregnant together? If it’s really possible to plan it” and “I’ve thought about adopting, which even sounds weird to me saying it, but there are so many children that deserve to be loved.”
SO TRUE. So many children out there do deserve to be loved.
Mean Betty is actually too sick to her stomach (for once, not from too many martinis!) to make the obvious remark here.
Rest in peace, little Caylee.
