For a man speaking hypothetically about a murder, O.J. Simpson sure talks a lot in the first person.
Sunday's television interview was originally pulled in 2006 after an outcry from the families of (victims) Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, with Fox boss Rupert Murdoch himself apologizing for the bad-taste show.
According to Wrong, the confession tapes were originally shelved because the families were anxious Simpson would profit from it.
O.J. Simpson admitted cheating on his murdered wife and hitting her in the interview where he discussed hypothetically killing her.
According to an exclusive report by the Daily Mail, Simpson "immediately starts laughing" when interviewer and publisher Judith Regan clarifies that the children, 5-year-old Justin and 8-year-old Sydney, were in fact at home.
Simpson told Regan that Brown came outside, and after she fell and hurt herself, Goldman "kind of got into a karate thing".
Simpson said "hypothetically" (of course) he and his (imaginary) "friend" Charlie drove to Nicole's house with a cap, gloves, and a knife ("for the crazies", he said) under the seat of the vehicle, which they parked in an alley.
"He said he was willing to do it and the only condition that he had was that he didn't wanna call the book "I Did It"..." In the call, which was used as evidence in his murder trial, she told police that he had "broken into" her house and was "ranting and raving outside in the front yard".
"I loved her, but I wasn't in love her". "I did what any father would do, and yet people listened to that tape and made me this terrible person".
After these clips aired, Christopher Darden, one of Simpson's prosecutors from his criminal trial, said plainly on the program, "I think he's confessed to murder". The program also featured a panel hosted by Soledad O'Brien, which was interspersed throughout the interview. He may try to describe it as a hypothetical but of course, it becomes 'I.' 'I did this, .' 'I felt this.' 'I saw this.' This notion of Charlie? "This notion of 'Charlie, ' Charlie is O.J. This is no hypothetical, this is reality". Ms Brown-Simpson was stabbed seven times and attacked so viciously she was nearly decapitated. "To this day, it bugs me it seems people wanted me to be guilty-that really, really bothered me". "And I don't know why he went by Nicole's house, but he told me, 'You wouldn't believe what's going on over there.' And I remember thinking whatever's going on over there, it's gotta stop".
