In a new TV interview and a new book, guilty-as-hell but acquitted double-murderer O.J. Simpson will discuss exactly how HE would have committed the brutal slayings of his ex-wife and her friend 12 years ago IF he had done it and he's eager for us to know HOW he would have done it - even though he says he didn't do it. But for the $3.5 million he's getting for the book, heck yes, he'll pretend like he did.
The interview on Fox, sensitively titled "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened", will show how much the smug and shamless former football star believes that any admission or confession now will not subject him to further prosecution thanks to the 5th Amendment which prevents double jeopardy.
"In the two-part event, Simpson describes how he would have carried out the murders he has vehemently denied committing for over a decade...This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen," says FOX's reality programming guru Mike Darnell. "It's the definitive last chapter in the Trial of the Century."
Simpson was acquitted in a criminal trial of the 1994 killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman. He was later found liable in a wrongful death civil lawsuit filed by the Goldman family. At the time, he was ordered to pay $33.5 million in restitution to the families of the victims, but he has not paid any of it.
The special is timed just before the release of Simpson's book "If I Did It," which will be released on Nov. 30. Simpson reportedly made $3.5 million to write it.
As for the TV special ... Will there be re-inactments? Will there be diagrams and pictures with Simpson holding a laser pointer giving up clues? And will Simpson rat out who got rid of his bloody clothes for him? (IF he did it, of course.)
