Oprah Throws Down O.J. Simpson Challenge

Sometime today, Nevada prison inmate O.J. Simpson will likely get wind of Oprah Winfrey‘s remarks at the National Cable and Telecommunications Association convention in Chicago. As part of her renewed commitment to kick start OWN from, mostly, LA, Oprah predicted that some way, somehow, she is going to land the O.J. confession interview.

Would O.J. consent to such a sit-down, which Oprah insisted would only happen if Orenthal James agreed beforehand to come clean on-air about the Brentwood crime of the century? Hard to tell, but it’s a hell of a Vegas wager.

Simpson will be eligible for parole no sooner than 2017, but of course could do the interview from prison. A few months ago, there was a report in the National Enquirer claiming that Simpson had been brutally beaten in prison and is now basically in self-imposed isolation.

Beating or no beating at Lovelock Correctional Center (pictured), the suppression of a guilty conscience may be hard to continue to uphold now that the mighty Oprah has started knocking at the mental door. FishbowlLA’s money is on Oprah.
