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.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
