OJ Simpson wants to be on Celebrity Apprentice

There are all different levels of bad ideas. There’s obvious ones like walking into traffic, and less obvious ones, like spending the day with Mel Gibson – it could go either way. But pretty much anything having to do with OJ Simpson is guaranteed to be a bad idea. It could even be spending a day with OJ Simpson petting kittens, and I assure you, something really, really bad will come of it. According to Page Six, OJ has expressed his desire to appear on Celebrity Apprentice – and Donald Trump and NBC are vaguely considering it.

It looks like there could be “killer” ratings in store for TV’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” if OJ Simpson gets his way. Page Six has learned the creepy double-murder acquittee has asked Donald Trump to allow him to appear on the top-rated NBC show next season. “Simpson really wants to do it. Trump and NBC are thinking about it, but are being very cautious,” our source said. “There’s a certain amount of heat associated with Simpson.”

[From the New York Post]

A certain amount of heat? That’s the understatement of the year. Yeah there’s generally some heat associated with murderers. Especially when you put them on reality shows. I wonder in what capacity Simpson would like to appear? Does he want to be one of the contestants, or is he hoping to appear in one of the challenges? Here’s an idea for a challenge: spend three hours in a room with OJ and try not to suffer a panic attack resulting from the absolute assurance that you will wind up with a slashed throat. That was somehow your fault.

Everyone knows Donald Trump loves attention, and any kind of publicity is alright with him. And I pick on Donald a lot. But if he has the basic class to pass on this and not give OJ Simpson any more attention, I promise to make fun of him one less time a month. Or at least I’ll do my best.

    I wonder how all this time spent in jail and trying to get booked on reality shows has impacted his search for the ‘real killers’?

    This is sick – even the idea that it’s being considered. Big judgement call. How bad have things gotten that tv ratings (you KNOW they would be huge) might be allowed to take precedence over basic human decency. Not that anyone could ever accuse Trump of an over-abundance of any kind of decency. Sick murdering thug. Sick idea. Sick.

    Why stop with putting OJ on reality TV. Maybe some producer should bust out Charles Manson and have him compete along side OJ. The idea of OJ getting any kind of attention makes my skin crawl!! Lets hope Trump and NBC all decide to use their brains when it comes to this decision and say “NO!!”

    The only way I will support this is if Donald is cutting a check directly to the Goldman family who Simpson has managed to carefully and deliberately avoid paying.

    A criminal on Donald Trump’s show is almost redundant. :lol:

    I live in Louisville, and since the Kentucky Derby is right around the corner, I thought I’d share this little tidbit about O.J. Simpson.

    Last year, Simpson and his hanger-on’s went to a glitzy restaurant here in Louisville before the Derby. All of the patrons complained to the owner, Jeff Ruby, and Ruby kicked him out of the restaurant. While leaving, all of the patrons started applauding. It was classic.

    If Trump decides to use this idiot on his show, he may go to hell right along with Simpson the Murderer.

    We have seen enough OJ to last a lifetime! The sight of him make some of us gag. He should stay in hiding instead of continuing to do antics for attention.

    The Donald would lose viewers if he accepts OJ.

    It seems to me that the only reality show that O.J. Simpson is qualified to be a part of is….”America’s
    Most Wanted”. Donald…if you continue this. I’m afraid….”You’re Fired”!

  11. Kelly says:

    Sure, and what’s next? He and his lovely , smart, classy girlfriend can delight us all by appearing on “Dancing With the Stars”…throwing up
