Dr. Phil McGraw is back for a new season — and his first sit-down interview is with the parents of Casey Anthony.

McGraw pounds into the questions right away, giving Cindy and George Anthony no sympathy for the role they played in Caylee Anthony’s disappearance and death.

“My Caylee is missing. She came into my life unexpectedly just as she has left me. Jealousy has taken her away, jealousy from the one person that should be thankful for all the love, support and strength given to her,”Cindy Anthony wrote on MySpace, 12 days before she reported Caylee missing.

However, Cindy said Caylee wasn’t missing “in a literal sense” at that point.

“Caylee was missing in my heart that day. She wasn’t missing physically, in the sense, because I thought I knew where she was at,”she said. “I wanted [Casey] to know how much she was hurting me. And I thought that she was purposely keeping Caylee away from me.”

Dr. Phil then asked if they really thought the “death smell” in Casey Anthony’s trunk was from Caylee.

“Truthfully, to this day, I don’t know, to be honest,” says Cindy. George adds: “Do I want to believe Caylee was back there? I don’t want to believe it. I’m going by what the investigators have told me. All I know is that Caylee is not with us anymore. I know that. I know that.”

Cindy also defends George against the suggestion that he knew of Caylee’s disappearance. “George would have never have put us through those six months of not knowing where Caylee was if he knew where Caylee was,” she says. “I watched his heart break every single day. And I watched him as frantic as he was.”

The Anthony’s told Dr. Phil that Casey suffers from Grand Mal seizures that cause her to black-out.

The full interview – for which McGraw’s production company reportedly paid a fee to Caylee’s Fund, not directly to the Anthonys – will air Tuesday and Wednesday on his TV show.
