In a stunning development, word leaked out Tuesday afternoon that FOX – the network which brought us such high-brow entertainment as MARRIED… WITH CHILDREN and the unforgettabe WHO WANTS TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE? – will later this month broadcast a special in which O.J. Simpson details exactly how he would have committed the 1994 murders of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her pal, Ron Goldman.
Not coincidentally, the interview – reportedly scheduled to air on November 27th and 29th – is being conducted by Judith Regan, aka the woman whose publishing house will be releasing Simpson’s book, “If I Did It, Here’s How It happened” at the end of the month. Also not coincidentally, the two-part event which is almost certain to garner blockbuster ratings will air on the final two days of the all-important sweeps period.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Simpson’s tome “hypothetically describes” how he would have committed the murders. In 1995, America was enthralled by what was called “the trial of the century” as Simpson stood charged with the murders. He was acquitted, only to have a civil court find him responsible for the slayings in 1997.
Seriously folks, as crazy as this sounds, it’s completely true. Not in a million years could I have concocted such a story! Only FOX could dream up something like this. Sadly, the network that gave us JOE MILLIONAIRE no doubt has a huge hit on their hands. What’s next? A reality show for OJ — OJ: THE SEARCH FOR THE REAL KILLERS (essentially one really long episode of COPS)
