Amanda Knox has finally spoken about her bizarre behavior after the killing of her British roommate in the house they shared in Italy.

In an interview with ABC, Knox, a Seattle native, attempted to explain why she acted the way she did after Meredith Kercher’s stabbing death in 2007.

Knox was initially convicted in Kercher’s death, but the decision was overturned on appeal in 2011.

Italy’s highest court has since overturned the acquittal, and Knox will be retried.

Knox behaved very oddly after Kercher’s death.

When asked about the alleged cartwheel she did at the police station:

“I never did a cartwheel. I did do the splits … once,” Knox said. “I was reacting in an upset manner. And I was upset. And I could’ve been more sensitive to the people around me. That’s what I think was the major issue — was I could’ve been more sensitive to the people around me.”

The reports of Knox and Kercher not getting along:

“It bothers me when people suggest that she wasn’t my friend,” Knox said. “I was stunned by her death. She was my friend.”

The casual sex she engaged in:

“It was irresponsible. A child is going about a very adult thing,” she said. “I thought that’s what all self-confident, free-spirited women did, and at that point I still felt like a clueless girl.”

Why she didn’t think it was strange her house’s door was open and blood was dripping in the bathroom:

“I had never before experienced anything in my life that was drastic.”

Knox thought the swinging door was peculiar, but not necessarily sinister.

The “All You Need Is Love” shirt she wore in court:

“It was another one of my naive immaturity,” she said. “I didn’t realize how very intensely I was being scrutinized.”

Sitting In Filth: Children’s Car Seats Are Even Grosser Than Toilets

The seats parents use to protect their children may, in fact, be endangering them. Your average toilet has about 50 different kinds of bacteria in one area. That’s nothing compared to what researchers at the University of Birmingham found when they swabbed 20 children’s car seats. The seats had about 100 different kinds of fungi and […]

Guys Reenact Another Hilarious Conversation Between Two Older Women (Video)

At the start of the summer, we posted a video featuring two 30-year-old guys lip-syncing conversations between two 60-year-old women. It’s a simple concept, which turned out to be hilarious, so I was thrilled to see they’d spent the past couple of months compiling new snippets. You wouldn’t think listening to middle-aged women talk about […]

New Blood Test Can Predict Which People Are At Risk Of Committing Suicide

It’s very difficult to know who among us is at a high risk of suicide since it’s not a sentiment that is necessarily apparent. But scientists at Johns Hopkins have determined that those on the verge of actually going through with suicide can be biologically distinguished by the appearance of a specific gene — one […]
