    Casey Anthony is ready to speak out—though it appears she isn’t ready to show her face. The 26-year-old who was made famous by a made-for-TV trial over the 2008 death of her 2-year-old Caylee, Anthony made her first statements to the media since her July acquittal after spending months in silence. “Obviously I didn’t kill my daughter,” Anthony told Piers Morgan on his show Tuesday night. The two spoke on the phone for about 10 minutes. “If anything, there’s nothing in this world I’ve ever been more proud of, and there’s no one I loved more than my daughter. She’s my greatest accomplishment.” She continued: “I’m ashamed in many ways of the person that I was.” Anthony confirmed that she would not be signing a book or movie deal anytime soon. “I’m not making gazillions of dollars at the hands of other people, or trying to sell myself to anyone…The caricature of me that is out there, it couldn’t be further from the truth.”
