Kato Kaelin Still Believes O.J. Simpson is Guilty of MurderKato Kaelin said on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated) that he still believes O.J. Simpson is guilty of the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. And he also believes that the 33-year sentence Simpson is serving for kidnapping and armed robbery is the result of a circle of bad friends and "karma."

"My opinion is, I thought he was guilty," Kaelin said of Simpson's 1995 murder trial, adding that he still believes that today.

Faye Resnick and Camille Grammer Ignite a Massive Dinner Party Argument on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': The Wives Have a Psychic for Dinner, Then Start ScreamingAin't no party like a 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' party. On the latest episode (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo), Camille Grammer invites the other women over for a dinner party. In addition, there are several non-housewife-based guests, including Allison DuBois, the psychic who inspired the TV show 'Medium.' Also attending the party -- Faye Resnick, ex-drug addict, ex-'Playboy' model, and friend of Nicole Brown Simpson, murdered wife of O.J. Simpson.

Wow. Even without the slightly odd dinner guests, having this many 'Housewives' in the same room at the same time can't possibly be a good idea. And this turns out to be the case, as the ladies get pretty tipsy and start screaming at one another.

Disgraced Ex-Cop Mark Fuhrman: "Everyone Else" Let O.J. Simpson Get Away With Murder (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Oct 12th 2010 10:35AM
Disgraced Ex-Cop Mark Fuhrman: 'Everyone Else' Let O.J. Simpson Get Away With MurderFifteen years ago, Americans watched the "Trial of the Century" -- the O.J. Simpson murder case. The bloody glove, the car chase, the murdered couple, and the football star who went free. ... Memories of the crime are still vivid. Men and women can still recall where they were, when the infamous "not-guilty" verdict was announced.

On 'Oprah' (weekdays, syndicated), former detective Mark Fuhrman shared his regrets about the case -- and explained why the killer escaped. Fuhrman blamed O.J.'s acquittal on almost "everyone else." The ex-cop said that he and his LAPD partner did a great job. But according to him, the prosecution and the rest of the police department messed up, allowing Simpson to get away.

However, as Oprah Winfrey pointed out, Fuhrman may be to blame. He may have helped the killer evade justice.

James Cameron Says O.J. Simpson Was Almost Cast as 'The Terminator' (VIDEO)

James Cameron Thought O.J. Simpson was 'Too Nice' for 'The Terminator'James Cameron is the director of 'Avatar' -- the highest-grossing film in history. But Mr. Cameron hasn't always had a smooth road to movie success. On '60 Minutes' (Sun., 7PM ET on CBS), Cameron discusses his early years in the industry -- including the time a studio tried to cast O.J. Simpson in one of his movies.

After being fired from his first directing job -- on the notorious flop 'Piranha II' -- Cameron had a vision for a new film. This vision literally came to him in a dream; a dream about a skeletal robot rising from a fire. In the end, the film became 'The Terminator,' his first blockbuster success.

But even though Arnold Schwarzenegger became famous in the role, he wasn't the studio's first choice. An executive wanted to cast O.J. Simpson as the killer cyborg from the future. Cameron was completely against the idea, thinking that O.J. would be totally miscast as a killer. Of course, this all took place years before the murders that would make Simpson infamous.

June 17, 1994 and the Infamous O.J. Simpson Car Chase (VIDEO)

O.J.'s Car Chase on '30 for 30'Recognize this picture? Where were you on June 17, 1994 -- the day O.J. Simpson was barreling down the freeway in a white Ford Bronco, with the LAPD in hot pursuit?

Broadcast as part of ESPN's '30 for 30' series (Wed., 10PM ET on ESPN), the 'June 17, 1994' documentary reminded us of the many sports-related feats that occurred that day -- and the news that trumped them all: The Juice's extraordinary fugitive dash.

Footage includes how the media reported the event, and some of the LAPD's coaxing words with Simpson over the phone. "There's a lot of people that love you -- don't throw it all away," he was told.

The documentary also reminded us that just before he was arrested and charged with double homicide, O.J. was allowed to have a glass of ... OJ.

The Closer: Split Ends

Brenda TNT"Oh, goodness. Is this where they do Dancing with the Stars?"
-- Willie Ray Johnson, Brenda's momma

(S04E08) Here was an episode that epitomized what I like about The Closer. This was an excellent mystery. It was complicated and drew you into the chase. Like Brenda, you're wondering how it was done, why and by whom.

Of course, it didn't seem like it was going to be a heavy duty episode, not when the opening was all about Willie Ray and Clay's unexpected visit. That damn RV has brought Brenda's parents cross-country, even with gas at $4 a gallon!

Don't get me wrong, I like Barry Corbin and Frances Sternhagen. They're great actors, but the roles are so broadly drawn. The show uses them for comic relief, even though they can do drama brilliantly. The scenes at the film studio were too jokey to me, especially in light of the heinous crime scene that Brenda was investigating.

The murder reminded me of the O.J. Simpson case. It looked like Ryan -- an actor with anger management issues -- was the murderer. He lied and had a history of beating his wife. The sight of him with the gym bag and then those black gloves were all vaguely reminiscent of O.J. Of course, since he was the prime suspect, I never thought that he was the killer. Too obvious.

O.J. Simpson on the next Celebrity Apprentice?

by Keith McDuffee, posted Apr 23rd 2008 12:20PM
oj simpsonO.J. Simpson is interested in appearing on television again, though for a much different sort of reality show than the interior of a courtroom. Namely, The Donald's boardroom.

O.J. reportedly is interested in appearing in the next season of Celebrity Apprentice (there's going to be another season?) and has even asked Trump to allow him to participate. From the Page Six article: "Simpson really wants to do it. Trump and NBC are thinking about it, but are being very cautious," their source said. "There's a certain amount of heat associated with Simpson." Ya think?

I'm betting Simpson's appearance on the show will boost ratings in some circles, while others will cry for a boycott of the show. I'm not sure where O.J.'s going to have time to finish tasks for The Apprentice when he's so busy scouring golf courses all over America in search of his late wife's killer. Maybe that will be the final Apprentice task.

Catherine Crier slams Court TV in speech

by Bob Sassone, posted May 5th 2007 3:01PM

Court TVIf you haven't heard, Catherine Crier's show has not been renewed by Court TV, so she is leaving the network. But not before getting in a few digs.

In a speech to lawyers in Florida, Crier says she is sad to hear that Court TV (which is changing its name, by the way) is no longer going to cover trials on TV. It will be a web-only feature. Instead, the network is changing its entire lineup, and Crier says it will be "a lot of explosions, a lot of car chases, a lot of cops, a lot of beach babes."

I'm surprised that the network is getting rid of their trial coverage, since it was one of the features that really made their network stand out from anyone else.

Paris Hilton headed to jail!

by Bob Sassone, posted May 4th 2007 9:02PM

Paris Hilton...tonight, on a very special episode of The Simple Life.

OK, maybe they won't make it part of the show, though I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Paris Hilton has been sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating her probation, and being a moron. Well, not that last part, but definitely for violating her probation. She is going to have to show up to jail on June 5, and the judge is not going to let her do a furlough or wear a monitoring bracelet or any other easy way out. Doesn't sound too "hot."

Now comes the part where all of you unleash your comments below and let us know if this is a good thing or not, and make jokes about what jail will be like for Paris Hilton. The jail she's going to is the same place that held O.J. Simpson, and their main meal is usually chicken.

On the 5th day of Festivus, TV gave to me

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 13th 2006 8:02AM

The Nine

...fiiiiiiiiiiiive canceled shooooooooows!

1. The Nine (ABC): Yeah, the network can say it's "on hiatus" and that "the remaining episodes will be shown in 2007," but we all know what it means. And the reason I picked this as #1 is because this show had more buzz and positive reviews than any other show before the season started. I think more critics picked it as a the "best" than any other show. Then the show kept losing viewers, even though it was on after Lost, so ABC pulled it from the schedule. That's really unfortunate. It was a good show, though I think that after the pilot viewers were expecting a different type of show than the straight drama with a twist that we got. Hopefully Tim Daly will have better luck with his new show next year.

You too can be a Law and Order writer

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 29th 2006 4:29PM

Law and OrderThe Mayor of Television (hey, they had an election for Mayor of Television? Why didn't anyone tell us??) has invented the Law and Order Fantasy League Game. Basically, you guess which "ripped from the headlines" story one of the Law and Order shows (the original, Criminal Intent, and Special Victims Unit) is going to ripoff write an homage to. Will it be Michael Richards? The O.J. Simpson book controversy?

But you can't just guess which show is going to do which plot and be done with it. You have to tweak it a little bit, so it's "original" (cough cough). So, maybe a former sitcom actor says some nasty racial remarks, only this time it's not at a comedy club, it's at a private party. Or maybe a former pro baseball star (not a football star! accused of killing his parents (not his ex-wife and her friend!) decides to create a web site (not publish a book!) showing pics of the murder scene and how he might have done it.

The Mayor's idea for a Michael Richards-inspired story is more elaborate than mine, and would fit the L&O world nicely.

Is Norm MacDonald thinking of doing a fake news show?

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 14th 2006 2:58PM
Norm MacDonaldOn the Howard Stern show today, Artie Lange was talking about his buddy Norm MacDonald, who was supposed to be on the show this morning, but bailed (he was on Letterman last night, though). Lange mentioned a few items that were interesting: Firstly, he thought a specific "Weekend Update" joke about O.J. Simpson -- after O.J. was found not guilty, Norm said something along the lines of "Murder is now legal in Southern California." -- is what got him fired from SNL. Then-NBC exec Don Ohlmeyer was friends with Simpson, and rumors had always floated around that he was always pissed at Norm's O.J. jokes (even though Leno was doing plenty at the time, too). This is the first time, though, that I've heard that a specific joke got him fired.

The second item Artie let slip was that Norm loved doing "WU" so much, that he'd love to just do fake news until he retires. Because of this, Norm may be looking to do a show like that. Not a bad idea; I always liked him on "WU", even if his weridness didn't go over well with the audience, I always admired his "I don't give a shit what people think" attitude. Would you watch Norm do a fake news show? Let me know in the comments.
