Now that more than 20 years have passed since O.J. Simpson murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and her lover (let’s be real, you know he did that shit), it’s time to make a TV movie about it starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and the delightful Sarah Paulson, who must’ve had a momentary lapse in judgment when she signed the contract. O.J. is all the rage again, which means Kris Jenner had to crawl out of her snake cave to reap the benefits of the bountiful press surrounding the case. After all, she was friends with O.J. and Nicole and was likely boning O.J. on the side, so she has a lot to say about the matter — basically that she thinks he did it.
In a new interview with People, Kris recalled that fateful day and her subsequent visit to see O.J. in jail:
“We had plans for lunch.” She adds, “I dropped my kids off at school and on the way home, I called her house to confirm lunch. And when I got home, I got a call from Nicole’s mom, Judy, and she told me.”
“I went into shock,” Jenner recalls. “And I turned on the TV and there it was. They were showing the crime scene. It was horrific.”
“I went to bed one night and the next morning, my entire universe had changed,” says Jenner, 60. “[OJ and Nicole] were two of the best friends I ever had in my entire life. It was devastating because not only did I mourn the loss of Nicole, but I mourned the loss of OJ and that relationship.”
Yeah, I suppose knowing your secret lover had murdered his ex-wife would put a damper on the affair. You probably wouldn’t really want to continue with that, given that you might lose your life if you angered that piece of shit.
Of the jail visit:
“I talked to him while he was in jail,” she says. “He was trying to tell me he didn’t do it, and what he thought had happened. I just listened to him, to what he was saying to me.”
“I’m a very logical person,” says Jenner. “I want to give everybody the benefit of the doubt, but the evidence was so strong. [What he said] didn’t have any effect on what I thought.”
Good lord. As for what she thinks of O.J. possibly getting parole next year after being put away for robbery and kidnapping, Kris has no thoughts on that. She doesn’t want to judge, because that’s God’s job. Boy, is it ever.
