Ex-manager says OJ Simpson confessed

My life wouldn’t be complete without writing something about OJ….

LOS ANGELES (AP) A memorabilia dealer who profited from O.J. Simpson for many years is the latest former crony to write a tell-all book, this one alleging a groggy Simpson, high on marijuana, confessed to killing his ex-wife after he was acquitted.

Mike Gilbert also claims he helped his former friend wiggle out of the murder charges by suggesting how to bloat his hands so they wouldn’t fit the notorious bloody gloves…

…He said Simpson had smoked pot, took a sleeping pill and was drinking beer when he confided at his Brentwood home weeks after his trial what happened the night of June 12, 1994. Simpson said he went to his ex-wife’s condominium, but did not bring a knife with him. Simpson told him Nicole Brown Simpson had one in her hand when she opened the door.

In a soft mumble, Simpson told him: “If she hadn’t opened that door with a knife in her hand … she’d still be alive.”

Ahh, OJ. I don’t know and don’t care enough to come up with an educated opinion on whether he killed his ex-wife or not. The most interesting things to me about the case are how polarized opinions about OJ are along racial lines, and how a Black man got acquitted for allegedly killing a White woman (which I think is what really made the case such a huge deal….the race factor, combined with the celebrity element).

Anyway, I hate to reveal this in public, but my partner in crime and co-blogger Tranimal actually has in her possession OJ’s missing glove. I saw it when I was helping her move the other day and confronted her about it, and she freely admitted it not only to me but also to her boss. Sorry to put you on blast Tran, but the truth must come out!

BTW, I am curious to read that “If I Did It” book OJ wrote…if any of you have a copy then holla at your disciple…
