Folks were fascinated with the life and trial of O.J. Simpson for all of 2016. From FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson, which nabbed several awards including a Golden Globe, to the documentary O.J.: Made in America, which won an Oscar.
Now it looks like Simpson could end up on reality TV when he gets out of prison later this year. But will people watch?
According to TMZ, reaction is mixed amongst production companies, networks and agents about how well a show featuring Simpson would do, but there certainly is interest. Experts say Pay Per View could be a viable option.
And then there’s also UK’s Celebrity Big Brother. Radar Online is reporting Simpson could go from the big house to the confines of the reality TV house.
According to the site, bosses for the Channel 5 reality show are eager to sign the reviled ex-athlete, and will apparently take the risk of angering some viewers in exchange for massive ratings over the controversy that would ensue.
Simpson, 69, is reportedly set to walk free from prison on October 3, exactly nine years into his 33-year sentence. As previously reported, a parole board is set to meet July 3 and is expected to recommend his release, based on good behavior.
The former football legend–who was acquitted in 1995 of the brutal stabbing murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Ron Goldman–was convicted in 2008 on armed robbery and other charges. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years imprisonment, with a minimum of nine years without parole at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada.
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.”
