FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson has been a hot topic over the past several weeks, flooding social media timelines with reaction to the series that chronicles the days following the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson.
We have managed to consume ourselves with the story all over again, much like 1994 when Simpson became a suspect in the death of his ex-wife. And while many revisit where they were during the Bronco chase scene, or recall watching the tragic story unfold, others are questioning why the series continues to involve the Kardashian kids.
In case you don’t know, Kim Kardashian’s late father, Robert Kardashian, assisted in the acquittal of O.J, something that the now famous family has confirmed drew a wedge between Robert and the Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner.
HipHollywood caught up with Keesha Sharp, who plays the wife of Johnnie L Cochran on the series, to talk about the constant references to the most talked about family in the entertainment industry. “What I will say is he [Robert Kardashian] was a huge part of the case and his kids were part of his life,” she told us.
Sharp continued, “We just happen to know who they are now. If we had seen this now and we didn’t know who they are, we would’ve just thought, ‘oh, I didn’t realize they had so many kids.'”
“Because we do know who they are now, to see them as children we are like ‘well do they really have to put that in there.’ But it’s his children so it makes sense. I understand both sides.”
Earlier this week, sources confirmed to TMZ that a scene in the second episode showing the kids clapping in front of the television when their father was speaking at a press conference, was totally exaggerated and never happened.
Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
