After watching and analyzing George Anthony s exclusive Fox 35 interview a while back, it became clear that George needs to be liked and needs to be seen as the “good guy”. So in keeping up his “good guy” image, he decided to show up in court to support his wife Cindy, who was going to testify about the 911 call she made when Casey wouldn’t cooperate and Caylee went missing.
The only thing is that he certainly didn’t look like a supportive “good guy” husband . He kept his distance from her physically.
In the photo above which was taken after Cindy testified and was listening to Judge Perry’s ruling, you can see that although they are sitting close to one another, they are not touching. There is no physical contact. It is obvious from Cindy’s nail biting that she could have used a little TLC and reassurance. She could have used an arm around her or a hand held. But George seemed to be in a world of his own.
When you look at the physical distance that George is keeping from Cindy it is not a very good sign. Also note how Cindy turns away from George. It is clear that they are both not happy together.
The stress of this trial is definitely showing. One can only imagine what will happen in terms of their relationship when the major trial begins next year.
GEORGE HAS NOTHING TO LAUGH ABOUT WITH CASEY’S SEXUAL MOLESTATION ACCUSATIONS
Even before she testified, Cindy shared a little tension releasing laugh with her attorney Brad Conway. George completely ignored her as he pulled his shoulder away from her and towards his body. This is a clear distancing signal.
George certainly had nothing to laugh about, especially since he was accused of sexually molesting Casey. In all honesty, I can’t imagine anyone ever laughing about anything with regard to this case! An innocent child is dead and Cindy’s daughter may soon die on death row. So Cindy’s chuckle with attorney Brad Conway clearly turned George off even further.
A TURNED OFF GEORGE
George looks absolutely miserable. He doesn’t acknowledge Cindy at all. His shoulders are rounded in a submissive posture as he is resigned to be somewhere he clearly does NOT want to be.
His face is sour and dour, complete with downturned lips and furrowed brow and very sad looking eyes. They are completely disconnected. Cindy on the other hand seems to be excited about giving her testimony as she is all smiles.
Not to be petty, but since body language involves what you chose or do not chose to wear on your body, it seems that Cindy has chosen to not wear a bra or to wear a very ill fitting one. The fact that she is wearing a Caylee necklace on her chest, brings attention to her chest so it is hard not to notice.
With all the money she earned from licensing the photos of Casey, perhaps she should use some of it to purchase some proper fitting under garments. Once again I am not being mean here, I am just telling it like it is. It speaks volumes about her self care.
BLACK ROOTS AND SELF CARE
And while we are on the subject of Cindy’s outward appearance and her self care , it is clear that she has taken a cue from Casey. Like Casey, she too is growing her hair out.
But if one has decided to have longer hair and also be a blond, it is necessary to take more self care and bleach out your roots because it shows up more and doesn’t look good. If she can’t afford to do that, then she may want stick to her original hair color shown in her roots. If she insists on being a blond and doesn’t have the money or the time to keep up her roots, then she needs to cut it short so that the roots aren’t as visible to others.
LOOK OF DISGUST AND DISDAIN
There is no question in my mind based on watching the raw video of George and Cindy in the courtroom that George appears to be disgusted by Cindy based on his facial expression whenever he looks at her. There are consistent and numerous flashes of disgust in his facial expression.
There is no doubt that he is disgusted with his daughter Casey for either lying that he molested her, if in fact he did not do so, or outing him if he did indeed molest her and Casey’s breaking the family bond of loyalty and exposing the family secret.Rather than show his sour puss to the world and passive aggressively show up for image sakes so that he can be seen as the “good guy” – the supportive husband and father, it would have been a lot more genuine if he sayed at home.
GUM CHEWING GEORGE
If George would have stayed home, he could have chewed all the gum he wanted in the privacy of his own home.
Why doesn’t George’s attorney and friend Brad Conway teach him some proper courtroom etiquette? Since has neglected to do his job, perhaps I can do it for him and educate George through this blog.
When you go into a courtroom it is not a movie theatre or a baseball game. You cannot eat or drink in there or chew gum there. To do so would be disrespectful. George’s gum chewing in the courtroom shows complete ignorance of how to comport yourself in a courtroom and complete disrespect.
So here is the bottom line to George and Cindy too. Take a Kleenex and spit out your gum BEFORE you walk into the courtroom. I am sure that there are trash cans around where you can deposit the Kleenex containing the gum.
And speaking of disrespect int he courtroom, it seems that the apple does not fall to far from the tree. I will get to George’s son Lee Anthony’s disrespectful courtroom behavior in my next blog.
MORE DISTANCING BODY LANGUAGE FROM GEORGE
George and Cindy are not a united front as far as their body language reveals. He sits out in front of her as you see here as a distancing mechanism. He looks away from her.And please don’t write to tell me that this is based on one photo. It’s based on a lots of photos and a lot of video watching. Oftentimes just from one moment in time you can see the leakage of how a person really feels about someone.
GEORGE WALKS OUT OF THE COURTROOM ALONE AND LEAVES CINDY BEHIND
Finally it was time for George and Cindy to leave the courtroom. They faced in opposite directions. He left her trailing behind and didn’t even look back at her or speak to her.
As you can see in the above photo, his rounded shoulders indicate that he has had to submit to being there even though he clearly did not want to be there at all. This photo and the ones preceeding it show that he clearly does not want to be around Cindy.
His expression mirrors how he feels inside. George is completely miserable and no doubt feels stuck . Also note how he pulls his head away from Cindy. Once again, that is a distancing behavior.
Finally George left the courtroom and Cindy was standing there alone by herself.
There is no doubt that this entire ordeal has taken it’s toll on their previously fragile relationship. Even though they have tried to put up a good public front in the past, as things become more stressful I believe it will put an even greater strain on them.
GEORGE FACING THE GRIM REALITY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TWO YEARS
If he did indeed sexually molest her, then he faces the grim reality of realizing how his improper actions may have contributed to Case’s aberrant behaviors.
Either case is a very grim scenario. He can no longer look at Casey the same way. He can no longer sit there with a straight face and defend her to the hilt. He can no longer go on and on about a fictious Zanny the Nanny or try to use River Cruz as a cause for reasonable doubt.
For the first time George is feeling emotions other than the grief of losing the only person in his life who gave him a reason to wake up in the morning- little Caylee. The emotional veil has finally been lifted. So he has to be feeling the anger and the rage he has towards Casey fro taking away his precious grand daughter.
Prior to this George was an emotionally vacant parent. By his own admission told Casey he wasn’t a great father as he preety much let Casey do whatever she wanted to do. So now he is forced to live with that. Being emotionally vacant, he had no clue with what what really going on with Casey or who she really was as a person. Now for the first time in his life he has taken a close look at who Casey really is and it is not a pretty picture. It is devastating for him and it shows in every aspect of his body language.
My only hope for George is that he is seeing someone who is a licensed psychologist or a psychiatrist who can help him cope with what must be a living hell. He needs a lot of support from a professional who will be there to guide him properly during the roller coaster ride of the trial and it’s aftermath. He needs a professional in his corner to help him cope with the grim reality. That reality is that his own flesh and blood may be killed by having a neddle stuck through her own flesh as it’s poisons course through her own blood.
