In watching OJ’s 2006 interview with his then publisher Judith Reagan of his book “If I Did It” OJ was telling the truth based on his body language and speech content. He did it ! There were three main signals of deception. The first one was when he said, Nicole fell. The second was when he said he cut his finger on a glass, and the third was when he said he loved Nicole as he shook his head no.
TRUTH- HE LEAKS OUT CONFESSION HE DID IT
The interview was incredibly revealing because not only did he admit he did it by going from saying “hypothetically” to switching over to “I”, he showed no signals of deception when speaking of the murders. He was fluid and fluent and his voice was strong and unwavering. there were no extraneous body language or facial language or vocal tells to indicate he was lying. He spoke with conviction. So he was indeed telling the truth about the murders. he was way too detailed for it to be hypothetical as well. In essence, he told the truth about how he killed Nicole and Ron Goldman.
SIGNALS OF DECEPTION
He lied when he said Nicole fell down. You hear a dismissive tone in his voice after going from such a strong voice with conviction. He also looks away and makes facial grimaces when he says that this is all hypothetical. At times he laughs. This clearly indicates deception- that it was not hypothetical but the truth.
He was also dismissive when he talks about the glass breaking. His eyes shift and his tone of voice changes. No one holds a glass and then it suddenly breaks in your hand. Also, he was way too detailed when telling the story. That is a clear signal of deception.
Then the third signal of deception was when he spoke of Nicole and said he “loved that girl” as he shook his head no. While his words were sweet, his body language betrayed him. He didn’t love her. He hated her and was angry at her and that is why he killed her.
He not only expressed anger at Nicole when he yelled at her grave and said “I told you” it was revealing. He told her he would kill her and he did. He is blaming her for his having to kill her- blaming her for her own death. He is angry at her now that Sydney does not have a mother and is angry about the impact not having a mother it will have on Sydney. He showed no remorse -only anger towards Nicole. He was angry that she had other men over to the house when the kids were there. He was angry that she was hanging out with people whom he didn’t approve. In essence, he hated her for having a mind of her own and for no longer being able to control her as he did when she was 18.
He was also angry at Ron Goldman and revealed disdain in his voice and facial expression at the fact that he was challenged by Ron. When OJ said you think you could fight me as Ron stood up to OJ and attempted to use his karate moves on OJ, OJ dismissed Ron’s action. He was saying Ron was no match for him- a little peon. But truth be told, Ron could have harmed OJ with his karate, but OJ’s knife was no match for Ron’s karate moves. He expressed his extreme anger at Ron Goldman for daring to stand up to OJ. He also was angry at Ron for showing up that night. When Ron explained he was there to return Nicole’s mother’s glasses, OJ dismissed it by saying he didn’t know if it was true or not. OJ’s account of Ron Goldman proves that Goldman did not die in vain. He died a hero defending an abused woman. He, unfortunately, turned out to be collateral damage.
He was also angry that the public thought of him as a murderer. In fact, he made a facial contortion and pursed his lips and quietly said the word murderer- something he knew he was. Then he is angry at the press and says how they are responsible for his negative image and how the public actually loves him and asks him for his autograph,
It seemed that his most meaningful and proud moment was when he saw people lining up on the freeway during his Bronco chase with signs saying OJ GO- or We LOVE YOU OJ. Throughout the interview, his stating how people love him was a was a common theme. He was more interested in people liking him and people accepting him and how he would look to others, than what happened to Nicole and Ron. Now the world has seen in action, up close and personal, what an extreme malignant narcissist looks and sounds like. There is no emotion when it comes to anyone else but himself.
HIS LOVE FOR PAULA
When OJ spoke of Paul Barbieri, he spoke of her lovingly. He was smitten with her and I know that up close and personal. You see, before the murders until up until the day of the murders, I was very close friends with Paula. So, when he spoke about her, I knew what he was saying was truthful. This is based on knowing Paula and hearing about OJ from her directly. When he said that it upset Paula that Nicole wanted to be back in the picture and get back with him, that was true. In fact, Paula became well aware that OJ was seeing both her and Nicole and that upset Paula so much that so she wanted out of the relationship.
I first met Paula when she was dating my former client turned friend- Dolph Lundgren. In fact, she and Dolph double dated several times- me with me and my Federal Court Judge boyfriend at the time. After she and Dolph ended their relationship, Paula then became a model. She and I ended up becoming very good friends, going to social functions, movies, hanging out at one another’s homes, going shopping together, attending barbecues at her at her house, attending formal dinner parties at my house. When she started dating OJ, we only hung out whenever OJ was out of town as otherwise, the two were inseparable.
One day, Paula picked me up outside of my office to go out for lunch in a huge white SUV. I asked her why she bought such a large car. She then told me it wasn’t hers- it was OJ’s and he let her drive it whenever he was out of town. So Paula drove us to lunch in OJ’s infamous white Bronco before it became infamous.
As Paula and OJ’s relationship became more serious I grew more concerned for her. The reason was that I once had a client who was a male model who used to model with Nicole for a fur company. He shared with me that on their photo shoots the company was always having to hide Nicole’s bruises with makeup because OK beat her and often left marks on her.
I also personally heard about the cops coming to OJ’s house for beating Nicole, from an actual cop friend who shared the details with me. So knowing about OJ’s other side left me concerned for Paula. That is why I asked her point blank if he very hit her or abused her. She assured me that he did not.
Like OJ said in his interview which was truthful, Nicole began to call OJ repeatedly and profess her love for OJ even though they weren’t together for 8 or 9 months. That is when OJ told about Nicole showing up to his house with his kids unexpectedly. Being the small town that Hollywood and Beverly Hills and the surrounding areas are, Nicole got wind of the fact that Paula and OJ were getting very serious and talking marriage.
So Nicole would constantly call OJ, which upset Paula, which she relayed back to me. She could see how Nicole was trying to manipulate OJ and use the kids to get him back and rekindle their relationship. Paula knew OJ was seeing Nicole when she wasn’t in town and knew he was having a dual relationship with both she and Nicole. So Paula finally decided to break up with him. But first, she wanted to go to a special Black Tie affair with him which she did two days before the murders, The next day, she left for an out of town on a modeling gig. I don’t know whether or not she tried to break up with him in person the night of the black-tie affair or if she did over the phone with him, or if she even broached the subject of breaking up with him at all. That remains a mystery to this day. I will never know what happened as I never spoke to Paula since the day OJ killed Nicole. When I saw Paula plastered all over the news and standing by her man- OJ it sickened me. I lost all respect for her as I knew that she was trying to cash in on her 15 minutes of fame, which is what she did by getting a three million dollar book deal on a vapid book that said nothing.
OJ’S LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH NICOLE
I do believe that OJ loved Nicole when she was an 18-year-old waitress at the Daisey in Beverly Hills when she looked up to him and did whatever he said. But when she came into her own, he began to hate her and abuse her. He couldn’t stand that he lost control over her. That is when he began hitting her and abusing her.
He hated her seeing other men because that was final proof he had no control over her and it angered him. Her dating younger men angered him as did her associating with new girld friends. He still wanted to control who she saw and with whom she associated and reacted negatively to Faye Resnick, whom he called a whore after she befriended Nicole.
He showed his anger as he relayed these issues on camera. while OJ was abusive to Nicole, like most abused women Nicole couldn’t let go and quit him and he couldn’t quit her. When she found out about Paula, she wanted him back with an urgency. When OJ found out about the younger men she was dating he became furious. So they both pushed one another’s buttons in the worst way possible until he killed her. So when OJ teared up at the end and said: “he loved that girl” he was correct and truthful as he loved the little 18-year-old girl. But as he said this, he shook his head “n:o which showed his ambivalence as he hated the woman Nicole had become.
