O.J. Simpson hypes new book

Just in time for holiday sales, O.J. Simpson gives his take on how he would have committed the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman had he been responsible for their deaths. Someone wake me, please, I must be dreaming. On Nov. 27 and 28, Fox TV will air a two-part unrestricted interview entitled, “O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened.”

Simpson will be interviewed by Judith Regan. Who is Judith Regan? She’s the publisher of his book which will be released a few days after the interview. Give me a break! How objective and honest can we really expect this interview to be? I’m not mad at anyone who’s making a living legally but come on, O.J., is this really necessary? This is like some bad Twilight Zone episode. What is the purpose of the book other than to separate people from their money? No doubt Simpson will make the rounds of talk shows and be covered by the print and electronic media. By any means necessary . . . promote the book.

You know we can expect the Browns and Goldmans to be incensed and rightfully so. Rehashing this tragedy to make a buck is all so very sad but what can we expect in the era of unreal ‘reality shows’?

For the record, I still think O.J. is guilty. Do I think he committed the murders alone? Perhaps not but I think he was involved. I have to agree with Chris Rock from his “Bring the Pain” routine. That whole O.J. verdict was about money, it wasn’t really about race. O.J. had the Benjamins to pay for the best legal defense and he was acquitted. Hell-o? That’s the way our legal system works. I could go on and on about that but that’s another post for another time.

When all is said and done, my heart goes out to the Simpson children. All of them. The children from Simpson’s first wife, Marguerite and the children with Nicole. They really don’t need to relive that time in their lives.
