O.J. lashes out at Nicole

Ten yrs. later, he blames her for not being there for kids!

O.J. Simpson


Nicole Simpson

LOS ANGELES - O.J. Simpson marked the 10th anniversary of his ex-wife's death with a series of crass and hurtful comments about Nicole Brown Simpson, her family and the accusers of Kobe Bryant and Michael Jackson.
His outbursts ranged from anger at his slain ex-wife for not being around to help with the kids to a flippant remark that Fred Goldman - whose only son died next to Nicole - "got such opportunity from this with TV exposure."

The disgraced former football great also revealed he may get his own practical-jokes reality show - a takeoff on MTV's "Punk'd" that might be called "Juiced."

Simpson talked with Fox News Channel in anticipation of the upcoming anniversary of his ex-wife's murder. His unfeeling comments reopened old wounds with Nicole's family and left Goldman stunned with fury.

"No one should give any credence to a lying...low-life like he is," Goldman told the Daily News.

Some of Simpson's most inflammatory remarks were made in defense of Bryant and Jackson, saying both would win their cases. He said Bryant, who is charged with bending a 19-year-old hotel receptionist over a chair and raping her after she came to his room at night, may be a victim of his NBA fame.

Many high-profile athletes "have found themselves in a situation like that before. I have, certainly, in my life," he told Fox's Greta Van Susteren.

"And when I was a kid growing up, just about every girl said 'No,' once," Simpson said with a laugh. "You know they had to because you'd think they were a slut or something." In his politically incorrect outburst, Simpson even made light of the rape allegation. "In my opinion, 'date rape' and 'stranger rape' are two different things entirely," he said.

In an apparent reference to the sexual positions of Bryant and his accuser during the alleged rape, he said, "Any adult who has an active sex life understands that you can't have sex that way without both parties helping out. It's impossible."

Simpson also doubts his weirdo pal Jacko, who often invited him and his children Sydney and Justin to his Neverland Ranch in the 1990s, is a child molester.

"I just have never seen that in him. ... I think Michael is just an affectionate guy toward kids."

He predicted that Jackson, whom he considers "asexual," will be acquitted because his accusers won't hold up in court.

"I think the credibility of the parent, the mother, will probably set him free."

Simpson, 56, was found not guilty of hacking his ex-wife and Goldman to death but a civil jury found him responsible for their deaths. He also said that at times he is bitter at his slain ex-wife:

"There are times I am angry at her. ... There are things that she could [have been] doing with the kids better than I, you know?"

He had harsh words for his former sister-in-law and fierce critic Denise Brown, prosecutor Marcia Clark and Fred Goldman:


"I don't think anyone's bills have been paid more than Denise's from what came from that trial."

"People like Marcia and Fred Goldman got such opportunity from this. People signed them to contracts."

"I don't think Marcia was a nice person. ... I was there in the court when she told Johnnie [Cochran] she wasn't wearing any panties. ... It typifies Marcia Clark."
Told of Simpson's comments, Goldman said he simply was not worth reacting to, but Denise Brown was outraged that her former brother-in-law claimed to get angry at her slain sister.

"He's angry at her? That's a typical batterer, who won't take responsibility for his own actions." she told The News. And she was furious that Fox and other television networks, including NBC, are giving Simpson air time on the 10th anniversary of Nicole's brutal death.

"Shame on you, Greta! Shame on all of you who put him on."

I heard about this on Jim Rome's show. Rome's take was pretty funny, but OJ has some serious issues. He seems to be either really stupid or so self-centered that he doesn't think he's done anything wrong.
