It looks an O.J. Simpson confession to Oprah Winfrey to the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman will not happen. Winfrey's company denied the report.
The National Enquirer reported on Wednesday that Simpson was ready to sit down for an interview with Winfrey in which he would admit to the murders. The tabloid said Simpson had told a Winfrey producer that he did it in self-defense, that Nicole came at him with a knife.
But apparently there will be no interview. A spokesperson for Harpo Productions told The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, "That's not true."
Winfrey herself sparked the talk of a Simpson interview at a cable television conference last week when she said, "I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me, and I am going to make that happen people."
The crowd cheered, and she added, "I don't just want the interview. I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson."
Simpson was acquitted of the 1994 murders. He is currently in prison in Nevada after being convicted of a botched robbery in an attempt to retrieve his football memorabilia.
