Let’s talk true crime. Society’s unwavering obsession with understanding, dissecting and chronicling each and every detail behind humanity’s most reprehensible acts is certainly nothing new. And lucky for pop culture fanatics, the genre has undoubtedly become stitched into the very fabric of the entertainment word. And while some would say doubting prosecutions, rehashing evidence and asking a victims’ loved ones to relive their pain day after day is callous and exploitative, millions of television … read more

Oh no, he didn’t. Music video director Joseph Kahn courted controversy on Monday, July 18, when he tweeted his support of Taylor Swift and compared her to O.J. Simpson’s murdered wife, Nicole Simpson Brown.
“Ain’t the first time the Kardashians supported the murder of an innocent blonde woman,” tweeted Kahn, 43, who directed Swift’s “Bad Blood” video, as the feud between the singer and Kim Kardashian escalated after the reality star Snapchatted a phone conversation between her husband, Kanye West, … read more

The O.J. Simpson trial wasn’t easy for witness Kato Kaelin, who was thrust into the spotlight as a witness and as a houseguest of Simpson’s. “It was rather scary to know they knew where I lived. I had people that would actually slide notes under my door,” Kaelin says in an exclusive clip from Saturday’s Oprah: Where Are They Now? “Knowing that photos were taken of me where I lived and my privacy was over.” Things got worse as the 1995 trial continued. Simpson was ultimately acquitted in the murders … read more
After the Mark Fuhrman tape was revealed on tonight’s episode of The People v. O.J. Simpson, I probably would have given Simpson a “not guilty” vote, too.
Don’t get me wrong, I still believe that Simpson is, in fact, guilty.
But what the show proved tonight is that the case was bogged down by so many race issues that got so muddled between the defense and prosecution that they really should have called for a mistrial. But because none of that happened and the prosecution failed to prove Simpson … read more
The 10-part FX series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson tells the fascinating tale of Nicole Brown Simpson’s real-life killing and the ensuing media frenzy around the murder trial of her famous ex-husband O.J. Simpson. Once again, in honor of “the morally corrupt” Faye Resnick, let’s see what these hellbeasts are up to in Episode 6, “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia,” and determine who’s the most morally bankrupt of them all. 1. THE MEDIA
Every outlet has officially turned into … read more
One of the most affecting scenes in last night’s brilliant Marcia Clark-centric episode of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story took place not in the courtroom, but the hair salon. After months of being humiliated by the press about her looks, the embattled prosecutor (played by Sarah Paulson) is elated, even enthralled, by her hairdresser’s promise to remake her into “the new, real Marcia Clark” — never mind the innate contradiction of those two descriptors. Her curls — … read more
A new chapter. A knife was allegedly found buried on the perimeter of O.J. Simpson’s former estate, according to a new report. TMZ reports that a construction worker found a folding buck knife years ago, possibly in 1998, buried on the grounds of the former NFL player’s L.A. mansion. Reportedly, the worker took the weapon out onto the street and approached a police officer, who demanded he hand it over. Apparently, the cop who seized the knife never ended up turning it in as evidence, and kept … read more

It’s safe to assume that Kato Kaelin isn’t the biggest fan of American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson. The key witness during Simpson’s 1995 trial penned a review of the anthology for the New York Daily News, and according to Kato, a lot of what the FX series portrays didn’t happen. The former radio personality, who now hosts a show called Sports Haters, is also not a fan of the blond wig worn by Billy Magnussen, who portrays Kaelin. “I have often said that the media made me … read more
