O.J. Simpson tries on gloves during his double-murder trial.

Both the Brown and Goldman families were supportive of the project and Simpson is not profiting from the program, a source close to the production said.

He told interviewer Judith Regan: 'She always had a thing about her weight, and that became an all-consuming thing.

According to Wrong, the confession tapes were originally shelved because the families were anxious Simpson would profit from it.

Simpson was a talented and record-breaking National Football League player who was later put on trial for the murder of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. The following year, Simpson was acquitted of murder charges in a trial that gripped the nation and formed the bases of a recent documentary and miniseries. In 2007, he was found guilty of kidnapping and stealing sports memorabilia in a Las Vegas hotel and sentenced up to 33 years in prison.

At the beginning of Simpson's televised conversation with Judith Regan-the woman who published his "If I Did It" book-he initially hesitated, claiming "it's not easy to discuss", which is weird, considering this is all supposed to be "hypothetical", right? Nicole came out, things got heated, she told OJ to get the f*** off her property, and then he says Nicole fell and hurt herself.

Asked what he said to Nicole when he was caught on camera kissing her at her funeral, Simpson coldly said: "I don't know if I said anything, to be honest with you".

"I'm sorry, I tend to keep my kids out of everything as you may notice", he said.

He added that while he didn't remember saying anything to Nicole during her viewing, someone told him that they heard him say, "I'm sorry".

FYI. Simpson left Nicole's nearly decapitated body right by the front door of her condo as their 2 children slept.

Simpson claimed that he was simply acting out of concern for his kids.

"The next day I called him back and he said he was willing to do it". "I did what any father would do, and yet people listened to that tape and made me this frightful person".

After these clips aired, Christopher Darden, one of Simpson's prosecutors from his criminal trial, said plainly on the program, "I think he's confessed to murder". Soledad O'Brien hosts the special, which airs with limited commercial interruptions. During the discussion, Simpson gives what the network describes as a "hypothetical account" and "disturbing" details about the night of the slayings.

Simpson said to Regan that he had been to Nicole Brown Simpson's gravesite and "cursed" at her, telling her, "Look at these kids, look at Sydney with no mother".
