Disgraced football star O.J. Simpson is back in the news again, almost six months after being released from a Nevada prison. An interview that publisher Judith Reagan conducted with Simpson in 2006 will air on Sunday on Fox. The interview was to coincide with Simpson’s ‘fictional’ account of the infamous Nicole Brown, Ron Goldman murders in 1994. The book ‘If I Did It’ was published by the Goldman family after they were able to gain the rights to the book, due to a 33 million dollar judgment they had against Simpson. Reagan lost her job as publisher after ‘News Corporation’ fired her after they received harsh criticism about the premise of the book.
The never before seen interview has surfaced and will air on Fox Sunday night as a two hour special. According to sources, Simpson will not profit from the airing of the interview that Fox was able to acquire. In the interview Simpson says, “Nicole and Ron Goldman died, but in essence they both killed me that night.” Simpson was referring to the fact that his life as he knew it before June 12th 1994, would never be the same again.
Reagan says that in 2006 Simpson’s lawyer called her and said “OJ is ready to confess, but the word ‘If’ must be in the title of the book, so he has a way of denying the murders to his two younger children.” Simpson also tries to explain why he was enraged during a much publicized 911 call that Nicole Brown made in 1992. He says he didn’t want certain women around his children, and he also didn’t want his ex wife bringing different men in the house in front of his kids. He says “I went to her house and read her the riot act. I did what any father would do, and yet people listen to the tape and think I’m this horrible person.”
