According to recently released text messages, Casey blamed Caylee for missing a party.
Local 6 News reports text message records show Casey Anthony's partying was constrained by what she called "mommy duties," and said "waiting around sucks" when her parents failed to get home in time for Casey to go out.
Here's the rundown of Casey's test messages on May 3 at 4:21 PM:
Anthony and then best friend Amy Huizenga made plans to attend a party.
"Any more details on that party?" Anthony asked.
But about two hours later, Anthony sent Huizenga a text message reading, "Cross your fingers that my parents get back soon. God, I need this tonight."
"But apparently, her daughter, Caylee, needed her more," Pipitone said.
Two hours later, Anthony sent another message.
"I'm trying to get a hold of my mom to see when they're coming home. Sitting around waiting sucks," Anthony said.
Three hours after that, Anthony gave up on her party plans, telling Huizenga that she would take a rain check.
"Downtown tomorrow? My mom owes me," Anthony sent in a text message.
About a week later, a boyfriend sent a message about his regret over Anthony being absent from the party scene.
"Thought you were coming out last night," it said.
"Yeah, so did I," Anthony replied. "Mommy duties."
On May 23 at 7:48 PM, Anthony told Huizenga, "I'm going to stay home," promising to go out the next night. "I already cleared it with my madre."
Anthony attended a party that weekend, which combined with her daughter's disappearance, gained her national notoriety, Pipitone said.
On May 24, Anthony sent Huizenga a text that said, "The cops came around 1:15 and broke up the party."
The next night, Anthony attended an "anything-but-clothes" party and sent another message to Huizenga.
"You will officially see the American flag in all its glory tonight," Anthony's message said.
Anthony also attended a Friday night hip-hop party at the Fusion nightclub, telling a former boyfriend on June 13,
"You guys should definitely come. $5 cover, super hot shot girls, a hot body contest."In other Casey Anthony news, according to the Orlando Sentinel, Caylee's grandparents George and Cindy Anthony will issue a statement later this week through their new family representative, Michelle Bart.
