Simpson was taken into custody and at the end of a memorable 11-month trial. Though not actually on the case, "The People vs. O.J". Simpson: The Lost Confession, but based on social media reaction, the network may have reached a new low in a way that has nothing to do with numbers. But the protests resulted in Regan's firing and Fox's shelving the interview. Some moments he slips in details about Nicole and the case that have never been mentioned before.
On the show, Simpson reveals how he would hypothetically have killed his girlfriend and her lover.
The interview was originally supposed to run in late November of 2006 as a sort of promotional special.
The interview was recorded to promote his book - If I Did It.
"I couldn't turn away", he said in the interview.
In the wake of the controversy, Regan was sacked from News Corp. "I went to her house and I read her the riot act", he said. A Florida bankruptcy court awarded the book's rights to the Goldmans, and they published it in 2007. Even now, If I Did It remains controversial.
"He may try describing this as a hypothetical, but it becomes 'I, '" Darden said.
"This idea that this is a confession interview is a joke", said Malcolm LaVergne, Simpson's attorney.
The interview, "rediscovered" by Foxas the NFL Hall of Famer has been brought back into headlines due to the recent documentary, O.J.: Made in America, and the series, The People v. O.J. Simpson.
The two-hour special titled O.J. "I'm so conflicted because of that blood evidence". I think it actually was. The service comes with a free 7-day trial, and you can watch Fox on your computer by using your browser, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app. "He recognizes that this was a big mistake and bad judgment, no matter how much money was thrown at him to do this", LaVergne says. He was released on parole in October 2017. He says Nicole fell and hurt herself.
Comic Jim Norton, whose show now streams on Netflix, chimed in with, "For someone being hypothetical, OJ sure says, "I remember." a lot".
"I just remember listening to the radio, which, I think it was Dan Rather, it really saved my life", Simpson said.
The families of Brown and Goldman were aware the unseen footage from the canned TV special would be televised this year and gave the broadcast their blessing. "We've all seen the grisly pictures after", he says. "Whatever you want to take from it, I can not control it".
Or you were waiting in vain for Katy Perry, Lionel Richie or Luke Bryan to not just reject a warbler on the new "American Idol" but give them a full-on candor kick down the staircase worthy of Simon Cowell (or, apparently, Dick Vitale).
