FOX is set to air an old interview with OJ Simpson they’ve had on the shelf for years. In it, OJ tells host Judith Regan that he “hypothetically” had an accomplice in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and waiter Ronald Goldman.
According to “TMZ”, the 2006 interview, which is billed as "the lost confession," sees OJ speaking in the third person about how he "would have" committed the murders. Sources say at some point in the interview, he accidentally shifts to the first person. That's why some are saying that this "interview" is more like a confession.
During the taping, OJ describes going to “scare the s***” out of Nicole the night she was killed. Saying that he showed up in the Bronco with a friend, brought a knife and wore a hat and gloves “for dramatic effect.” Here's where it gets really creepy:
- OJ talks about seeing candles lit in Nicole’s room as if she was expecting the company of another man.
- OJ describes becoming enraged when Ronald shows up with the sunglasses Nicole left at dinner that night.
- It was at that point OJ describes “blacking out”...and coming to "covered in blood."
Is it a confession? Decide for yourself - the “OJ Simpson: The Lost Confession?” airs on Fox March 11th.
- ONE MORE THING! In case you're wondering "why would he ever?" You might recall that Regan actually helped Simpson write the book, "If I Did It: Confessions of a Killer." It was supposed to be released in 2007. Based on the premise, there was massive public backlash, which led to the release being canned. Still, about 400,000 physical copies of the original book were printed, and ultimately leaked online.
- BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE! In case you're curious...OJ isn't behind this in any way. Well, not unless he actually did the murders. In truth, the Brown and Goldman families actually own the rights to "If I Did It." That means whatever money comes out of this, goes to them...and considering OJ still owes more than $70-million in a civil judgment...it's not likely that he'll fight this.
