The parents of Casey Anthony are once again sitting down for an interview about the death of their granddaughter Caylee, this time appearing on an A&E special that will air Monday at 8pm.
Casey Anthony’s Parents Speak finds George and Cindy Anthony back in the home where their daughter is believed to have died, and 10 years later emotions are still at a boiling point for the pair.
In a preview for the interview, Cindy storms off set at one point while telling her husband that their daughter’s tendency to lie is a direct result of his behavior.
‘There was different things that I got the blame for,’ George can be seen saying, prompting his wife to throw her hands in the air and exclaim ‘No!’
She then walks off while stating: ‘No, but I’m telling you, you lied to me for several years and that’s where our daughter got it.’
George simply replies: ‘Don’t deny it.’

George and Cindy were in the process of getting divorced when they learned that their daughter was pregnant.
Caylee was born in 2005, and over the next few years the estranged couple slowly began to grow close again.
That all changed with Caylee’s death.
Cindy reported Caylee missing on July 15 of 2008, saying it had been 31 days since she last saw her grannddaughter.
Her body was eventually discovered that December not far from the home, having been wrapped in a blanket and put into a trash bag.
In an interview last year the two said the birth of their grandson in 2013, the child of their son Lee, saved them when they needed it most.
In another clip, Cindy can be seen inside the house exclaiming: ‘I was told my granddaughter died in the pool. And I want the f***ing answers to that.’
George can then be seen sighing on the couch, while in another clip he states: ‘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.’
A more emotional George is later seen yelling: ‘We have lost more than you could ever even fathom, i don’t want to lose any more.’
He has made no secret of his belief that Casey was involved in the death of Caylee, while his wife has been a bit more hesitant to label their only child a killer.
She has also said she speaks with Casey on occassion, while George has said he has no desire to ever see his daughter.
When asked by Elizabeth Vargas at one point if her think Casey did something to Caylee, George quickly replies: ‘Absolutely.’
Boiling point: ‘No, but I’m telling you, you lied to me for several years and that’s where our daughter got it,’ states Cindy (above)
Tearful admissions: It may be the last time the two ever appear together in the home, which is in foreclosure
Hard truth: George has stated in the past that he believes Casey was involved in the death of Caylee and has no desire to see his daughter ever again
This interview could be the last time that the two are ever seen in the house where they last saw their granddaughter.
A non-jury trial has been set for August to determine what will happen to the home after the pair failed to make their monthly mortgage payment.
This is now the third time since 2010 that the couple has gone into foreclosure proceedings on the Orlando home.

It is US Bank National Association who filed this latest case against the couple, claiming in court documents filed in Florida’s Ninth Circuit Court that the Anthonys never made a single payment on the promissory note signed by Cynthia in 2010 after she received $121,160.
Part of that money may have been used to settle up with Bank of America, who that same year filed a foreclosure notice on the home which was later withdrawn.
Cynthia owed $115,315.01 at the time according to legal documents and had not made a mortgage payment since the previous year.
The Anthonys ultimately avoided foreclosure, but they were put in the same predicament just a few years later in 2013 when another company came after them for money.
NationStar Mortgage stated in court papers that the couple owed $128,852.06 to the company and had not made a payment in years.
That case was dismissed just before the final hearing when a settlement was reached between both sides.
This could be the case once again for the couple, who no longer reside in the Orlando home.
The home is worth just $200,000 according to online real estate sites.

This A&E interview comes just one year after the couple’s last sit-down in 2017 with Investigation Discovery, who aired the two-episode special ‘Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery.’
That special took at look at Casey’s lawyer Jose Baez’s decision to state in his opening statement that George sexually molested his daughter and helped her hide the body of her dead daughter Caylee after she drowned in a pool.
A disgusted George denied both of those allegations, and said of Casey: ‘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.’
He also broke down as he read the suicide note he wrote three weeks after Caylee’s body was discovered near his home in Orlando, Florida.
In the special George was asked explicitly asked by the production team if he ever molested Casey.
‘Definitely not. Definitely not would I do anything like that to my daughter,’ said George.
He then grew enraged and began to clench his fist as he said: ‘I sat in that courtroom that day, and to hear that opening statement from that attorney [Baez], you don’t know how much I wanted to get up and just, do something to him.’
In his opening statement in the case, Baez immediately went after George, saying that he began sexually abusing his daughter when she was just eight-years-old.
‘She could have her father’s penis in her mouth and go to school and play with the other kids like nothing was wrong,’ claimed Baez.
He went on to claim that George was the one who found Caylee dead in a pool after the toddler drowned, and that he ran to Casey holding the body and screamed: ‘Look what you’ve done. Your mother will never forgive you. You’ll go to jail for the rest of your life.’
Baez then continued his attack on George when he was the first witness called to the stand after opening remarks, a last second move by the prosecution after learning that the defense would be making the defendant’s father a target.
He did not ask George about the molestation or the discovery of Caylee’s body, but rather made him recount a suicide attempt he made in early 2009.
George spoke about that difficult time during the special while fighting back tears.
‘I could not function after Caylee was found. I could not function,’ said George.
‘I drove as far as Daytona Beach, Florida to the most rattiest hotel. I took about 70 pills, I drank as much beer as I could, because I … I didn’t know what anymore to do.’
He then read parts of the lengthy note aloud, saying: ‘I want to hold her again, I miss her, I will always love us… I love you, Cynthia Marie – Caylee, here I come.’
Cindy spoke about what an amazing daughter Casey had been in her younger years, and the joy Caylee had brought to her life.
‘Casey was just a very spirited child. She had a lot of energy, she was just the light of our lives,’ said Cindy.
‘She made people smile. Casey was very popular. She had tons of friends and lots of little boyfriends.’
She went on to speak about their bond, revealing: ‘Casey and I were inseparable. I mean we shopped together, we did crafts together, we went on walks. We were very close.’
Things got even more exciting revealed Cindy when she learned that a baby was on the way.
‘I remember one day she came up to my office, and she had just come from the doctor, and she said that she was pregnant and she was worried that I would be upset with her,’ said Cindy.
‘And I just hugged her and said,”I’m gonna be a grandma. That’s awesome.” And I hugged her and said, “You’re gonna be a wonderful mom.”‘
The day the baby arrived was the happiest of Cindy’s life.
‘I was the first one to hold her and I felt kind of guilty doing that, but oh my gosh I just melted when she handed me Caylee,’ said Cindy.
‘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.’
