Excuses have never been Dr. Phil’s thing.
And in advance of his highly anticipated interview with George and Cindy Anthony, whose daughter Casey was acquitted of murdering her daughter Caylee, McGraw told the ladies of The View that’s all Cindy has.
“She seems to make an excuse at every turn,” McGraw said Monday of Cindy’s responses, adding that she is “very much in denial.”
The TV psychologist also said he doesn’t believe that George molested his daughter or that family dysfunction can explain Casey’s behavior.
“I think it will change people’s view, whether they liked them before or didn’t,” McGraw said of his no-holds-barred sit down with the Anthonys.
In exchange for their first TV interview, which airs on Sept. 13 and 14, the Anthonys asked for a donation to the non-profit Caylee’s Fund.
