Oprah Wants O.J. Simpson to Admit Murdering His Ex-Wife, Ron Goldman

Oprah Winfrey recently ended her 25-year run hosting the iconic Oprah Winfrey Show, but the media mogul is far from done with her days of interviewing high-profile celebrities. As Winfrey recently revealed, her “dream” is to snag O.J. Simpson for a tell-all interview on her upcoming OWN chat show, Oprah’s Next Chapter.

According to The Hollywood Reporter,  in an interview and Q-and-A with  Investigation Discovery’s Paula Zahn at NCTA’s annual cable show in Chicago, Winfrey explained that she believes Simpson murdered his late wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, in 1994 and wants the former NFL-star to confess to the murders.

“I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me,” said Winfrey to voluble cheers from the crowd at Chicago’s McCormick Place convention center. “And I am going to make that happen people.”

“I don’t just want the interview,” she said. “I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson.”

Simpson was charged with the murders of his wife and Goldman, prompting a firestorm of media frenzy. The nation was divided along racial lines in regards to Simpson’s alleged role in the crime, with most whites believing he was guilty, while blacks overwhelmingly thought he was innocent. Simpson was eventually acquitted of the charges in 2005 but was ultimately convicted in a civil case that awarded the families of the victims $33.5 million.

Winfrey noted that throughout the years, she’s tried several times to get Simpson to confess to the murders, but to no avail. However, even if Winfrey does nab the interview, she may not be the first to garner a confession from Simpson.

Reportedly, Simpson confessed to former HarperCollins publisher, Judith Regan, for a FOX television special and proposed book, If I Did It, where Simpson hypothetically described the 1994 murders. However, public outrage over the proposed projects forced FOX and HarperCollins to cancel the plans and Regan was fired from HarperCollins later that year.

The chances seem slim, but if anyone can get Simpson to confess to the murders, it’s surely Winfrey. –nicholas robinson

    Good article and I take issue with Oprah forgive me “Queen Oprah Winfrey”. Want to ask her what makes her think the O.J. would submit to some murders he did not commit and was found “not guilty”.  Who gives a flying fuck about the judgement awarded to the families because they were mad at the first verdict.

    I’m sorry does Oprah have a mystical ring or Lasso(Wonder Woman) to try to pull some false confession from O.J. Why does’nt she just hire the police that beat the hell out of Rodney King they would surely make him confess to something he did’nt do or any shady law enforcement.

    Why would OJ admit to a crime he did not commit?  Regardless of the media hype, 24/7 coverage convincing you of his guilt, pundits telling you his guilt,  the evidence that was presented lead the jury to find OJ not guility.  That’s all I need.  Just because you want it to be dosen’t make it so.

      Exactly, what I’m trying to say. People can’t handle the truth and even though it may staring at them in their face. Yet and still they want you to believe everything that was taught to you about history. It does’nt matter how distorted it was when being told about certain period of American history. Here is a case where DNA, a bloody glove and a racist police officer(detective). Oh! and lets not forget video tape of evidence  placed when it was’nt there before.

    The OJ 
    jury consisted of 8 blacks, 2 Hispanics, 1 half-Caucasian, half Native
    American, and 1 Caucasian female.  10 were women. 2 had a college education. 9 had high school diplomas. 1 did not finish high school.
    Some other facts about the final jury: (1) None regularly read a
    newspaper,
    but eight regularly watch tabloid TV shows, (2) five thought it was
    sometimes
    appropriate to use force on a family member, (3) all were Democrats,
    (4)
    five reported that they or another family member had had a negative
    experience
    with the police, (5) nine thought that Simpson was less likely to be a
    murderer because he was a professional athlete.

    With these ‘geniuses’ in the jury box and the OJ defense  strategy to fan deep seated racial hatred of Blacks for: white people, white authority figures, a very white Nicole Simpson & her white lover, the Police, they could have convinced them that little green men murdered Nicole Simpson and framed OJ.

    The trial was a despicable travesty.Everyone with 2 brain cells to rub together knew that OJ did it and got away with it by plain old reverse racism & white guilt.
    Interestingly enough 15 years later nobody even pretends that he was/is anything  but guilty. O yes, whatever did happen to OJ’s promise to search for ‘the real killers’ ….?
     I always loved that one…….

    I too believe that O.J. has something to do with those murders. My problem lies with the idea of him single-handedly stabbing two relatively healthy and young individuals, in such close quarters. That said; if one of Oprah’s biggest dream is really to get O.J. to confess, then I think that Oprah is very racially misguided.

    Oprah has stayed away from using her clout to get some real helpful answers to the racism that      is still entrenched in the U.S. and the world. Over time some of us who were displeased with her staying away from important racially controversial issues (that she could at least educate young blacks about), got to realize that that was the only way she would have become white America’s darling, and thus duly rewarded for her real talents. We understand that Oprah understands the game and played it excellently, and was therefore rewarded in proportion to both her real interviewing and business talents, plus her understanding of how to play America’s racism to her benefit.

    So now, if Oprah never veered from her decision to never air any the institutionalized racism, that still affects black people as when Oprah was born (it happens only in more sophisticatedly disguised ways) why does she not stick to that same known standard, when it comes to pointing fingers at black men. Again I say, yes! I do believe that O.J. had something to do with those murders. I do believe that he had a good legal team who played the legal game well. Obviously he has been paying for those deaths even if he were truly innocent. But still his guilt (if guilty) pales in comparison to the ongoing outright murder of black bodied, not to mention murder of black spirits that go on in the U.S. and world daily, directly due to White Supremacy Racism.

    So does Oprah not understand how White Supremacy Racism work in the world, or does she not have the ability to care about it, as much as she cares about promoting white as good and deserving of everything good? Does she truly think that she is using her clout to serve an under-served purpose
    by reigniting the feelings that One Black Man got away with murdering two white people, as white people get away with doing multiple times everyday?
