Goldman family goes on 'Oprah'

September 14, 2007|From the Associated Press

Oprah Winfrey says she won't buy or read the O.J. Simpson book, "If I Did It," but she helped promote it Thursday by having the father and sister of Ronald Goldman on her TV talk show.

Fred Goldman and his daughter, Kim, said that by seizing control of the book, they are punishing the man they believe murdered their loved one. Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of killing his ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend Ron.

A federal bankruptcy judge awarded rights to the book to Goldman's family to help satisfy a $38-million wrongful death judgment against the former football star.

In a separate segment, Winfrey interviewed Nicole Simpson's sister, Denise Brown, who was critical of the Goldmans for publishing the book, calling it "a morally wrong thing to do."
