Robyn Adams, who met “America’s most hated mom” while in an Orange County, Fla. jail in 2008, is appearing on Lifetime’s new series “Cellmate Secrets,” which premieres Friday.
The former inmate insisted that she has become one of Anthony’s closest confidantes during their time together. She claimed that the two weren’t allowed to speak with each other, but used “hand signals” to talk from their cell windows.
Adams claimed that the women wrote letters to each other and hid them in books via a book cart that was transported from cell to cell carrying those messages. Adams claimed that there was “one specific” novel to conceal their letters.
However, Adams alleged she didn’t need a secret message to see Anthony’s reaction when she learned that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office had located the dead body of her missing 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
“When they gave her the news that they found Caylee’s remains, it was bad,” Adams told cameras.
“They took her to medical because she couldn’t breathe,” Adams alleged. “She was having an anxiety attack, a panic attack.”
But prison guard Silvia Hernandez saw the situation differently.
“She didn’t act like a regular mother, where, ‘Oh, they found my daughter and she’s dead?’ – you know, crying, bawling,” said Hernandez. “No, her behavior at that time was like, ‘Oh s—t. I got caught.’”
Most recently, an anonymous juror who sat at the infamous trial told People magazine that the panel’s decision to acquit Anthony “haunts me to this day.”
“I think now if I were to do it over again, I’d push harder to convict her of one of the lesser charges like aggravated manslaughter,” the juror explained. “At least that. Or child abuse. I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, and I didn’t stand up for what I believed in at the time.”
“It’s traumatic to think about, and I wish I had done a lot of things differently,” the juror continued. “But it’s a part of who I am. This case will stick with me for the rest of my life.”
