The reaction on social media was swift. She spoke with CNN's Alisyn Camerota this morning, who asked why it didn't air in 2006 when she first recorded the interview. In a word, the special is shocking.
LOS ANGELES-The O.J. Simpson double murder case returns to USA television on Sunday with a 2006 interview that producers say will give viewers an unprecedented glimpse into the mind of the former football star. Some moments he slips in details about Nicole and the case that have never been mentioned before.
According to Simpson's scenario, he and Charlie went to Brown's home and confronted her and Goldman. It's a deeply riveting watch as well as something that very well may change how the public thinks of the Simpson case and Simpson's legacy. Simpson: "The Lost Confession?": Attorney Christopher Darden, who helped lead the prosecution team with Marcia Clark (and was later famously played by Sterling K. Brown in FX's "The People v. O.J. Simpson: "American Crime Story").

First, the unmarked Inui headed over from seven yards out and then Kike hit the side-netting with only Keylor Navas to beat. Lucas Vazquez and Karim Benzema replaced Isco and Toni Kroos as Zidane looked to raise the tempo and find a second goal.
The interview was originally supposed to run in late November of 2006 as a sort of promotional special. The interview conducted by Judith Regan was a verbalized account of the scenario laid out in Simpson's book If I Did It. "The interview goes on to cover the aftermath of the crime - including the infamous Bronco chase - and Ms. Regan's questioning about what was going through Mr. Simpson's mind at that time keeps steering him toward explaining his feelings of anger, frustration, depression and yes, guilt". Chairman and CEO of News Corp.
So why was the interview shelved in the first place? "If I'd know he said this in 2006 I would not have objected to the release of this video". Though he was acquitted of Nicole and Ron's murders, O.J. was found liable for their deaths in a 1997 civil trial and was ordered to pay the Brown and Goldman families $33.5 million in damages. Regan sued News Corp., and ultimately the two sides settled out of court. I think Charlie is O.J. This is no hypothetical. The book outlined an allegedly imaginary take on the grisly murders of Brown and Goldman without ever actually confessing to anything straight out. Even now, If I Did It remains controversial. Simpson described and voiced textbook abusive behavior throughout the interview, and maybe anyone in a circumstance encountering similar behavior can heed the warnings that were put forth here. ABC brought the show back to air two years after its final season on Fox. "But somebody knew it was there, '" he said. "To this day, it bugs me it seems people wanted me to be guilty-that really, really bothered me". He was paroled in October. "Simpson says he walked around the property and Ron Goldman appeared, saying he was at the restaurant where Nicole dined and was returning the sunglasses her mom left behind".
"I just remember listening to the radio, which, I think it was Dan Rather, it really saved my life", Simpson said.
