So what’s next for the attractive, hard-partying 25-year-old Casey Anthony when she’s freed from jail?
She’ll no doubt be inundated with offers to sell her story and stay in the limelight, but experts suggested that she keep a low profile.
“She needs to withdraw from the media and discover what she’s going to with her life,” said Dominique Isbecque, Executive Director of the Image Resource Center of New York.
“From a legal standpoint, it would be pretty stupid for her to speak out… I don’t know what she has to gain from it,” agreed public relations consultant Adam Kluger.
She can try to rehabilitate her image, though “I don’t know that there is a way to resurrect her reputation,” he added.
Both said Anthony may eventually pen a book, but Isbecque said she should hold off for now.
“If she were to come out with it in less than six months that would be counter-productive to her image,” she said.
Kluger said it’s possible that Anthony will get some “weird requests” — a la Long Islander Amy Fisher, who served time for shooting her lover’s wife and is now an adult film star and stripper.
“From a marketing, branding standpoint I don’t know anyone in America who would want to get close to Casey Anthony,” he said of reputable organizations. “I don’t know how someone who’s acquitted of murdering their child has any sort of brand value to anyone.”
