Casey Anthony Casey Anthony, the Florida mom who was sensationally acquitted of the 2008 murder of her young daughter Caylee, became a familiar face to TV viewers during the intense media coverage of the case.

Now it's been reported that Anthony's become the latest "celebrity" to get the 'E! True Hollywood Story' treatment, in a special premiering next week.

According to the 'Orlando Sentinel,' producers got the inside scoop by interviewing journalists covering the case, Anthony's ex-boyfriends, a former high school friend, former defense attorneys and Zenaida Gonzalez, who is suing Anthony for defamation.

Gonzalez says her life was ruined when Anthony linked her to the disappearance of two year-old Caylee: "It started going down like, 'You're a baby killer, you killed that baby.' They were going to kidnap my daughters and see how I like [it] and then they started saying that they [were] going to kill them and they [were] going to send them to me in pieces in a box to my house and yeah. ... I hate that part."

Brandon Snow, Anthony's former boyfriend who is now in hiding, is quoted as saying "If you wanted to hang out [or] go party she was always down."

Anthony's defense attorney, Dorothy Clay Sims, says that media coverage of the case portrayed her client in a poor light. "You follow someone around, let's say 24/7, and then you only play one or two hours of their most difficult time, that does not define who that individual is. That was an unfair portrayal of her."

There's been no word yet if Anthony's TV nemesis, Nancy Grace, will feature in the hour-long special. She covered the case for years in her single-minded pursuit of the "truth" about Caylee's death, and her intense, often controversial, scrutiny produced record ratings for CNN's Headline News.

Grace's outraged disbelief -- "somewhere out there, the devil is dancing tonight" -- at the "not guilty" verdict handed down this summer sparked headlines around the world.

'E! True Hollywood Story: Casey Anthony' premieres Wednesday Oct. 19, 10PM ET on E!
