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, for which he was acquitted, the network said.
The two-part interview, titled “O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened,” will air Nov. 27 and Nov. 29, the TV network said.
Simpson has agreed to an “unrestricted” interview with book publisher Judith Regan, Fox said.
“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.”
The interview will air days before Simpson’s new book, “If I Did It,” goes on sale Nov. 30. The book, published by Regan, “hypothetically describes how the murders would have been committed.”
It’s only befitting that he’s being interviewed by Judith Regan…
…an edgy, tough-as-nails, (allegedly) maniacal, vixenish publisher who never met a scandal she wouldn’t print. (She was once described by an ex-friend as “the highest functioning deranged person I’ve ever known.”)
What would be really fun is if a bolt of lightning struck crazy eyes in the middle of the interview.*
It’d be a real home run if it ripped them both. I mean, come on now. We all know he did it. Those who rooted for him to get off did so for reasons that had nothing to do with his innocence or guilt. It was more about a balancing of the scales of racial justice. This interview is just tempting fate. It’s as if he’s mocking God.
