OJ Sipmson doing interview and releasing book called: If I Did It

From what I understand this is basically a confessional of how he did it except told in the 3rd person and as supposition on OJ's part. It's too bad they can't put him on trial again for the killings.

LOS ANGELES - In a new TV interview and book,
O.J. Simpson discusses how he would have committed the slayings of his ex-wife and her friend "if I did it."
ADVERTISEMENT

The two-part television interview, titled "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened," will air Nov. 27 and Nov. 29 on Fox, the TV network said Tuesday.

"O.J. Simpson, in his own words, tells for the first time how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes," the network said in a statement. "In the two-part event, Simpson describes how he would have carried out the murders he has vehemently denied committing for over a decade."

"This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen. Its the definitive last chapter in the Trial of the Century," Mike Darnell, executive vice president of alternative programming for Fox, said in a statement.

The interview, conducted with book publisher Judith Regan, will air days before Simpson's new book, "If I Did It," goes on sale Nov. 30. The book "hypothetically describes how the murders would have been committed," the network said.

The book is published by ReganBooks, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers run by Regan.

Simpson, who now lives in Florida, was acquitted in a criminal trial of the 1994 killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was later found liable in 1997 in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the Goldman family.

Messages left with Simpson and his attorney Yale Galanter were not returned Tuesday night.

God, someone get the kids away from him, please.

What a legacy to grow up with. Like "I killed your mom and got away with it. What do you want for breakfast?"

Re: OJ Sipmson doing interview and releasing book called: If I Did It

I still don't believe he committed those murders because of the lack of evidence and the physical impossibility of him being able to do some of the things that were done.

However, I think he's trying to make some money and this will only add fuel to the rampant speculation that he did do it, which is something I thought he was trying to avoid, if in fact this story is true. Where's the link?

I'll believe it when I see it. Right now, it's hard for me to believe that he would bring this sort of attention to himself again.

Re: OJ Sipmson doing interview and releasing book called: If I Did It

Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.” On Thursday, Oct. 19 he had this to say:

O.J. an author?
O.J. Simpson is in the news again. Well, not the news technically, he’s in the “National Enquirer,” which lands him right square in our nightly celebrity gossip roundup, “Keeping Tabs.”

The “Enquirer” says has signed up to write a book called “If I Did it,” a hypothetical account of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend, Ron Goldman. If, you know, the murders happened to have been committed by, say, O.J. Simpson. Reportedly he would make a non-hypothetical $3.5 million for the book.

Among the highlights, gruesome, detailed, and say the “Enquirer” “realistic” description of the murders themselves. Simpson’s book, just another in a long literary tradition of books by people wrongly accused of killing someone they loved who’s speculating, in print, at length and graphic detail about how they would have brutally stabbed the person they loved, hypothetically.

Yeah, I agree. Obviously he's doing this for money and attention, but i just don't understand why he would release a book and do an interview like this. Talking about how he would have done it, if he did it? I read about this this morning on Yahoo - http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061115/...pson_interview

Hmm, interesting. The story that I read and linked to has quotes from Fox and confirms that he did write the book and is doing the interview with them.

"O.J. Simpson, in his own words, tells for the first time how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes," the network said in a statement. "In the two-part event, Simpson describes how he would have carried out the murders he has vehemently denied committing for over a decade."

Re: OJ Sipmson doing interview and releasing book called: If I Did It

Some parts were left out of the story Sally posted above.

Quote:
In a video clip on the network's Web site, an off-screen interviewer says to Simpson, "You wrote 'I have never seen so much blood in my life."'

"I don't think any two people could be murdered without everybody being covered in blood," Simpson responds.

In recent years, Simpson has made a living signing autographs at trade shows. But according to the National Enquirer, he's being paid $3.5 million for his story, reports CBS News Early Show national correspondent Hattie Kaufman.

In September, Goldman's father, Fred, asked a court to give him the publicity rights to the name, image and likeness of Simpson, who has failed to pay the $33.5 million judgment in the lawsuit. However, a Santa Monica court rejected Goldman's claim two weeks ago.

"He personally has never paid a dime on the judgment to anyone," Fred Goldman said. "He has made it very clear over the years that he has no intention of doing so."

Re: OJ Sipmson doing interview and releasing book called: If I Did It

Fox plans to broadcast an interview with O.J. Simpson in which the former football star discusses "how he would have committed" the slayings of his ex-wife and her friend."

WTF?!!! Who seriousy thinks about how they "would have" killed the mother of their children and her friend.

Besides a murderer.
Hes already a pariah. Maybe he just said WTF?
Classless shit, though.
