For Casey Anthony’s parents, the shocking death of their granddaughter is still an oozing, open wound.
Ten years after the mysterious death of their granddaughter Caylee and the long trial of their wild-child daughter, George and Cindy Anthony are taking to the airwaves.

But in a sneak preview, Cindy Anthony storms off the set blaming her husband for their wayward daughter — and her tendency to lie.
“There was different things that I got the blame for,” George says, triggering his wife to throw her hands in the air and exclaim: “No!”
“No, but I’m telling you, you lied to me for several years and that’s where our daughter got it.”
Party girl Casey Anthony was cleared of murdering her three-year-old daughter Caylee on July 15, 2008. Her body was discovered six months later, wrapped in a blanket and stuffed in a trash bag.
While Casey was cleared suspicion has been her constant companion.
At one point, her mother bursts out: “I was told my granddaughter died in the pool. And I want the f***ing answers to that.”
The couple remains estranged from their daughter, who now lives a lonely existence in southern Florida.
Caylee and Casey Anthony in happier times.
“As a parent, you question a lot of times in life you know what did you do wrong, what could you have done better, but you can never go back,” George Anthony sadly says.
“We have lost more than you could ever even fathom, I don’t want to lose any more.”
He has always believed his daughter played a role in the death of Caylee.
George has also said he will never speak to his daughter again after Casey’s lawyer, Jose Baez, stated in his opening address that he molested Casey as a child.
“My daughter could come right in front of me right now and say, ‘Dad this is what really happened,’ and I wouldn’t believe her,” her heartbroken father said.
He vehemently denied molesting his daughter.
Her mother said that Casey Anthony wasn’t always the irresponsible barfly she became.
“Casey was just a very spirited child. She had a lot of energy, she was just the light of our lives,” Cindy said.
“She made people smile. Casey was very popular. She had tons of friends and lots of little boyfriends.”
She added: “Caylee reminded me a lot of Casey and I think that’s where my attachment to her was, it was just like reliving having Casey again.”
