OJ … please just exit stage left. It does not matter who came up with the title, “If I Did It” was not your idea. Not much changes how most people really feel about you. There is a reason why the book deal got pulled by mega-communications giant News Corp and that’s because most fell that “pond scum” is a step above.
(Vanderbilt – ‘06)
The book and TV appearances get cancelled by News Corp and still OJ Simpson just does not fade away to the obscurity that should be his lot in life. Instead he appears on WTPS-AM radio in Miami. Instead of just keeping quiet, OJ Simpson had to make it spitefully known to the Goldman and Brown families that he received and spent the money that he has already given for the ill-fated book, “If I Did It”.
Simpson, who lives in the Miami suburbs, also told WTPS-AM the reported advance payment figure of $3.5 million was inaccurate. Although he would not specify how much he was paid, he did say it was a “windfall” that would go mainly to pay bills and support his children.
“Would everybody stop being so naive? Of course I got paid,” Simpson said with a laugh. “I spend the money on my bills. It’s gone.”
Speaking of the book, “If I Did It”, what the hell is wrong with people that a copy of it is bidding for $1500.00 on eBay. Of course the people that would wish to profit off this book fall into the “pond scum” category as well.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – O.J. Simpson’s scuttled book about the hypothetical murder of his ex-wife appeared for sale on the Internet on Wednesday, attracting bids of $1,500 within the first two hours.
Two hours after being posted, the book had received 40 bids, the highest at $1,500.
