And so it begins. This just disgusts us in a way that is unimaginable.
Seems Casey Anthony's lawyer is pretty damn proud of the work he's done and he's ready to made bank on it. Yesterday afternoon an internal memo was sent out to the employees of Paradigm announced that Jose Baez, who stood dutifully by Casey's side from arrest to acquittal, was being signed to their agency.
Of course, it didn't take long before mayhem ensued. Though Jose is a hot commodity right now, people feel as much animosity towards him as they do Casey. It took a little over five hours for it to dawn on Paradigm that maybe signing this guy up for book deals and TV appearances wasn't going to to do loads for their image. Thus, a second memo was sent out, reading:
"Important Paradigm Update - We have informed Jose Baez tonight that we will not be representing him."
Bet he didn't see that coming! Guy like that probably thought he'd have a book deal lined up for this morning!
However, when reached for comment, a Paradigm source explains, “In the end it’s just not who we are.” The source then added:
"We have not and have NO INTENTION of signing Casey Anthony."
You don't - someone else will. It's just a fact, people. Some agency isn't going to see the horrendous crime she committed and got away with when she steps into their office. They are only going to see dollar signs floating wildly above her head. That'll be enough to clinch them into a deal with.
Just you wait. You'll be surprised how far some people will stoop when they think they can make money!
