O.J.'s 'If I Did It' finds a publisher

Oj_lUm… eww.

I don’t care if Ron Goldman’s family (including papa Fred, pictured at right) is getting the money. I don’t care if they’re giving some of it to "the Ron Goldman Foundation for Justice." I don’t care if the Goldmans get to add "key commentary" to the otherwise unedited manuscript by O.J. Simpson (pictured, left) and his ghostwriter. (What does "key commentary" mean, anyway? Scrawling, "What do you mean, ‘If…‘?" in the margins?) They can try to make this package as tasteful and respectable as they like, but I’ll still say…

Eww.

Which New York publisher would buy this book? (Guess we’ll find out later today.) For that matter, what reader would buy this book?

Did I mention… eww?

    I’m assuming its the same publisher that put out A Million Little Pieces without doing a fact check. Just putting it out there…..

    • Bud

      Actually…. A Million Little Pieces is an incredible book! However, it should have been promoted as fiction or at least part fiction.

  • Adrienne

    I thought the Goldman’s were outraged when this book originally was going to get published. Now they want to put it out themselves???

  • Stephanie Travitsky

    I am going to throw up. Can’t the Goldmans get an injunction to stop the publisher from printing OJ’s book?!
    I still don’t get it at all? “If I had done it”? He’s smart, yet evil. OJ DID do it, but now he can’t incriminate himself. Bast-rd!

  • Stephanie Travitsky

    Oh nevermind what I said before. The Goldmans are moronic. No amount of money can make up for a life taken.

  • G

    I cant beleive that the Goldman’s themselves managed to make one of the most disgusting displays of fame grabbing even more foul. So they were against what is quite possibly the worst-book-idea-ever… until they realize they can make a buck off of it? Do ANY of these people have souls?

  • Jill

    Didn’t his trial end 12 years ago? Why do we still have to hear about this man and the things “he didn’t do”. It’s too bad this is all he’ll be remembered for instead of being a great football player.

  • mike

    Do the Goldman’s need the money? Do they miss the limelight? Will we have to put up with Fred and OJ hitting the talk shows? The special hour on Larry King should be a blast. There is no good reason for this.

  • nathan

    I didn’t know Rollie Fingers was related to Ron Goldman, wow! And Wooohooo! Big Love is back on Sunday nights where it belongs, John From Cincinnati is so terrible.

  • nathan

    Are free mustache rides included with every purchase? A sort of G with P?

  • really??

    really? someone is stupid enough to publish a book called “IF i did it”? i bet the whole thing is like “if i did it, this is how i would get away w/ it… oh shnap, i DID get away w/ it, so my plan worked!!”

  • paige

    i dont know whose worse: the murderer who never went to jail and is making money off his dead victims… or the family of dead victim making money…

  • rose_b5

    What does it say about our society if we chose to publish this kind of crap? Have we become that obsessed with celebrities that anything passes as entertainment? I hope anyone with any type of brain activity will simply withhold their money. Shame on anyone even remotely involved with this project.

  • Stef

    I am not going to judge what the family of a murder victim is doing with a book that the murderer wrote. I have no idea what they are going through or what their plans are!

  • Lesley

    I would say that I hope no one reads this exploitative garbage but I’m not kidding myself; I know people are going to be all over this out of some sick curiousity.

  • nathan

    Rollie Fingers!
