Ahhhh . . . The publisher and FOX Television productions have cancelled OJ Simpson’s book deal for the book “If I did It” and his 3 part TV interview. I just knew there had to be justice in this world somewhere! My words for OJ – haha ha haha! Ok, so that’s just a tad bit childish. But not as grotesque as the thought of writing a book about how you would kill your ex wife, if you did it, which you didn’t. Boy, that’s a complicated sentence if ever I had written one.

The fact that a publisher, Judith Regan, would have ever even agreed to publish this book in the first place astonishes me. She has said that she took OJ’s words in the book as a confession. The other fact, that OJ would have the chutzpah to write the book in the first place, makes me sick. He told the press today that he is indifferent to this decision. There was just too much criticism about the book for anyone to think of standing by it. The only reason anyone would want to write it, publish it or do a TV interview about it is money! The root of all evil couldn’t not be more pronounced than in this case.

A dozen Fox affiliates had already said they would not air the two-part sweeps month special, planned for next week before the Nov. 30 publication of the book by ReganBooks. The publishing house is a HarperCollins imprint owned — like the Fox network — by News Corp. Simpson was supposed to receive 3 and a half million dollars for the book deal. It is under review if FOX still has to pay him any of that money. I wouldn’t think so, seeing as OJ still has yet to make a payment of the 33 million dollars that he owes The Goldman Family for the civil suit they won against OJ for the slaying of their son, Ron. Ron Goldman’s father is now trying to go after the OJ name. He wants publicity rights to Simpson’s name, image and likeness in order to satisfy the multimillion-dollar wrongful death judgment. Good for him! How the jury never saw the guilt, we will never know.

Barbara Walters was approached to do an interview with OJ, which she declined and then informed the audience of her daytime talk show, The View. Borders Group, Inc., one of the nation’s largest bookstore chains, was planning to sell the book, but was going to donate the money to charity. There are good people in the world that live with the belief that money isn’t everything. Thanks Goodness for them. OJ’s children, now grown, must be so proud of dear ole dad.
