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.”
