Anthony doesn’t talk about Caylee nor her estranged parents, who testified in the trial.
She was found guilty of lying to police about her daughter disappearing, but on the new video, she only briefly mentions the ordeal.
“It’s just surreal how things have changed since July,” she said. “And how many things haven’t changed.”
She says she’s looking forward to starting a new life later this year.
