“We are 100% not interested. We are NOT NOT NOT interested. Simon & Schuster is not publishing, and has never intended to publish, any book by Casey Anthony, her family, or any member of her team,” a rep for Simon and Schuster tells the site.
“We are planning on publishing the Prosecutor’s book who was involved in the Casey Anthony case, so we have no plans in releasing a Casey Anthony book. We’re sticking with the prosecutor,” added Harper Collins, which came under fire in 2006 after it announced — and later canceling — plans to publish a book by O.J. Simpson called If I Did It.
“We have no plans on doing a book deal with Casey Anthony,” said a rep for the Penguin Group.
An unnamed publisher told the site, “Hell no… it’s blood money.”
TMZ.com has reported that an NBC news producer has contacted literary agents saying that Anthony — who was cleared on charges of murdering her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee, earlier this year — would do TV interviews if she had a book deal in place. A rep for NBC declined comment to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week.
ABC News came under fire for paying Anthony $250,000 several years ago for photos and video of the crime scene. The money went to pay for Anthony’s defense.
ABC is among the networks that have recently stopped paying for interviews.
