    Who will make the most money? Includes various book discussion

    ICA and JB will be multi-millionaires for sure, but what about GA, CA and RK? Think they will get a big payday? I'm sure there will be lots of blood money for everyone.

    I think this is true. Unlikeable people do not do well making tons of money, Read about Amy Fisher, long island lolita....her husband, much older than her BTW SOLD a porn movie of them.
    She had to have all kinds of work done on her face to change her looks and now does porn movies.....with girls, its a confusing story. But, she did get a journalism degree and wrote a book but she did not get rich from her crime. (shooting her bfriends wife) and on the whole she reminds me of KC. just wants what she wants and gets it anyway she can.

    Even Jerry Springer has said he has NOT made KC and her family a 1 mil offer. I cant see any reputable wanting her. She lies too much and yep,
    GA and LA could sue her for slander if she went into how she was so molested, etc. Unless she could prove it. Too many legal issues. IMO
    I would not buy a book by KC, to me it would be trash. Idont want to hear how muchshe loved Caylee and how abused she was.
    Id rather spend money on a book by a REAL victim such as the Dugard woman or by Beth Holloway. They are likeable people with real stories to tell.

    I have a feeling ICA and JB won't get big money out of this. They will do a few interviews that will pay well. But as for book and movie deals, they might not be seen as bankable commodities to publishers, producers, and studios.

    Marcia Clark a few nights back on JVM stated that she believes there is too much disdain for Casey with the American public. She said that talks of boycotts could make some publishers not view Casey as a bankable commodity. Yesterday on HLN, JVM, Lisa Bloom and Mark Nejame made the similar statements. JVM said that Casey might not look like a trustworthy writer to publishers because she a long history of being lying.

    Since the James Frey controversy that happened several years ago, publishers are careful when dealing with people that are publishing memoirs or types of non-ficition books. I know people who work in the publishing industry and they said publishers sometimes conduct background checks or they do crosschecking of the incidents written in the books. Some non-fiction authors take those very seriously. Cupcake Brown the author of Piece of Cake which is a memoir of how she was once gang member and drug addict and she eventually became a lawyer. Brown said in interviews that she feared problems happening with her book because of the Frey incident. She hired a PI the things she wrote about it and a few things couldn't be verified. Brown did say that her past drug use probably made her get dates wrong.

    Recently, Laura Hillenbrand who wrote the bio of WWII POW Lou Zamperini, said that she spends good amounts of hours crosschecking and verifying facts. She even admitted that were a few things Zamperini told her that didn't sound too believable but later on she found proof of his claims.

    Casey as mentioned before has a deep history of lying. Publishers could easily access the tons of documents that have been made public and they will see that there were people interviewed by LE that testify in court. Some of those people talked about incidents of Casey lying to them . The defense about the drowning has holes. Also the accusations against George and Lee can't be proven. I could see publishers not wanting to publish anything because they could fear George or Lee suing them.

    Big name publishers might not to get themselves involved with Casey. Another reason for publishers rejecting Casey is the economy. Right now the publishing and entertainment industries are being more careful about what they invest in because they won't lose money or add to other ongoing financial problems.

    Casey's "memoir" could get picked up by smaller publisher. But I can see that publisher only setting a small number for the initial printing. Another option for Casey or the DT is self publishing which could work if they were to release their books in the e-book format at a cheap price.

    As for movie deals, I think there is a good chance that Casey might not get a movie deal. There were celebrities outraged about the verdict. Some of them were A-listers. Yesterday it was mentioned that Paradigm which signed and then dropped Baez, actually did it because one of their clients was upset that Baez didn't give he or she the first interview.

    Celebrities and other public figures could aid in the boycotts against Casey and the DT.

    If the outrage continues as it has been since the verdict, I don't see them as being able to make a lot of money. Whoever endorses them will come under a lot of attack at this point.

    I think people will buy Cindy's book.

    ICA will get $$ for the Lifetime movie (but really, how much would that bring in?), a reality show (if it follows her from day one of release), and interviews. I don't think anyone would buy the book.

    I don't think anyone is going to get any sort of Hollywood money - just enough to make me sick but not enough to live forever on.

    ETA: ICA might write a book 10 years from now that a lot of people might read. Remember Amy Fisher's book that came out like 15 years later?

    I don't think they will make a lot of money. The American public is outraged, and now with all the social media there is a place to vent and let their voices be heard. There are already several "Boycott Casey" campaigns on Twitter and several groups on FB as well. As other posters have already mentioned a lot of celebs are not happy about the verdict.


    Due to the economy, people are not spending a lot of money on books, movies, etc as much as they did 5-6 years ago. If film companies/publishers view a possible project involving ICA being not profitable, they won't take it, plus books are now leaked as PDF files. Wasn't OJ's "If I Did It" book leaked online a few months before it was supposed to be released? I read somewhere that the book didn't sell well.


    If Jeff Ashton, Linda Drane Burdick, Yuri Melich or any of the LE involved with this case write a book, that's one I would def. buy.

    They don't need her for movie deals. Public records will be fine. As one talking head said where would the book fall non fiction or fiction. Public disdain is all around. I don't think she would make much. I personally wouldn't see/watch any thing with her or dt. I'm still to mad about the verdict

    Amy F said no one would hire her, she had work done on her face....she set up a meeting (that was taped) with Joey B. and she does porno movies. She is not liked and she was also on Dr Drews celebrity rehab show. I kind of see Casey A going this route. Some people just arent likeable. Alot of people would probably buy Jaycee Dugards book. She is a likeable person and admired for all she went through. Casey isnt.
    If someone like Jaycee writes a book and makes lots of money more power to her. But dont feel that way about CA and Casey, making money off the deathof a little girl. That is a sickening thought. I guess there are some people who would buy their book and not care just out of curiosity but i dont think theyd have anything interesting to say. CA lied during testimony about the chloro search and well, Casey lied to detectives, changed her story too much, etc.
    Thanks to sunshine law, we already pretty much know the story why buy a book.

    This "people" will never buy a book written by FCA, CA, GA, LA, JB, AL, CM, LKB and the jurors plus (all other defense team members.) I will also forgo any movies, news segments on GR, ABC, CBS, NBC or any other group who would pay the above as a profit off of the death of Caylee.
    That is all I have to say about my own intentions regarding this.
    By the way...I love GIANT PICKLES. They are awesome. My kids give them to me at Christmas.

    I don't think they are going to make much money at all if any. none of them including the jury. I know that many people are boycotting any of their efforts and I hope people here are too. I know on FB there are alot of posts re boycotting anyone that pays them any $$ for tv, movies, books or interviews. I hope people feel this way for a long long time. Who would believe anything KC says anyway? And who wants to make Baez rich for defending a murderer?

    actually I think the public outrage is speaking volumes. Every time there is the hint of some sort of offer it is IMMEDIATELY retracted. Even a talent agent for JB dropped him after signing. I think any company that associates with Casey and Co. would be committing career suicide

    and don't forget all of the people after KC for money. The state alone is looking for upwards of 500k and I'm sure they'll get it. then there's the IRS and civil suits.

    IMO I think KC and JB will go there separate ways over the $$$ issues

    I think money issues will cause a falling out between KC and her beloved attorney Jose. JB is probably pissed that he got dropped from Paradigm. I don't think he will have much luck trying to get another agency to represent him. Even though he won this case, the defense story still doesn't look good to a lot of people.

    When KC has to deal with IRS and if ZFG wins the civil suit, I can see KC blaming Jose, Charles Greene or other attorneys for not helping her win in court.

    Why did JB need a agent like Paradigm? Did he think he was going to be a movie star or something? Seriously. All he did was win a murder case because he told all kinds of lies.

    Totally agree with you here,can I add... that the jury,(and I use that term loosely) didn't require much more than that either....it's a shame.

    I just hope the public's memory isn't too short and the outrage continues. Face it, the public has a very short attention span. She might not be able to publish a book and make money today but how about 5 years from now? However, that does beg the question of how will she live until then!

    Let's face it! When the porn industry and Jerry Springer reject you, your prospects are pretty dismal!

    I'd like George to write a book called "Life With Cindy".

    I think Lee would make millions ...

    I also wait for Yuri's book...that one will be so interesting..

    I totally think Casey's book will sell - even if we know there will be lies in it - in general, people are still curious about how Casey ticks... I know I will buy her book.. well, read it anyway I'd rather borrow the book than buy the book - but I will read it.

    I'm really not interested in what Cindy has to say - I have a severe problem with Cindy .. out of all of them, it is her that I dislike the most.... no clue why... just do...

    I don't believe they will get rich. No one can believe any thing either one of them say.

    No one needs to pay them to write a book or make a movie.
    Just one of those change the names to protect the innocent kind and we would all know who it was and pass the word.

    No one is interested in a common drowning cover up or one more murderer
    crying abuse.

    Heck this gang here at WS could put together a fantastic fact based book in no time flat and donate any proceeds to TM. That I would pay alot for.

    If you notice the agent that dummped JB listed his buddy GR as a client HA-HA-HA !!!

    I agree, Wendy. There is noone who gets under my skin more than Cindy. Let's look at why: for me, it's cuz she is an enabler of the worst kind. Did you hear that checks came to ICA directly from Gentiva?
    She never allowed ICA to accept any responsibility for her actions. Because of her coddling of her insane daughter, she allowed ICA to "got away with murder".
    She is a fricking liar just like her daughter. Where do we think Casey learned how to do it so well?
    She is also a nag and a mean, vindictive woman who rages at everyone in her family. I wonder how many brawls little Caylee had to witness.
    Mouthing "I love you" in the courtroom after all that ICA did to destroy this family..and after she threw her father under the bus? SICK!!!
