Meet Orenthal James Simpson, a.k.a. "O.J."
He's just your standard prison inmate, working out like a madman, preaching racial harmony among his peers, reading a lot and watching pro wrestling.
Makes the scum of the earth sound like a nice guy.
Since being tossed into Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center 11 months ago on robbery, assault and kidnapping charges, O.J. Simpson has adjusted well.
“O.J. works out every single day. He’s lost a lot of weight and he’s in great shape,” Simpson’s longtime producer, Norman Pardo, tells The New York Post.
“He says that’s one of the benefits of not being able to go out and party all the time like he used to,” adds Pardo, who for some reason still talks to O.J.
The many faces of O.J. Simpson.
When not doing push-ups or pumping iron, O.J. reads James Patterson books and follows his alma maters, the USC Trojans and Buffalo Bills, plus the WWE.
And while fraternizing with other felons, he counsels them on such issues as race relations and anger management, and in turn he's avoided any trouble.
“I have no issues in here. Everybody’s cool,” Simpson has told Pardo.
Simpson, who's serving a 33-year term (not long enough as far as his ex Christie Prody is concerned), even finessed a tough situation with his cellmate.
According to his daughter, the lucky roomie is (or was) a white supremacist - but shucks, because O.J. is such a good guy, they eventually became pals.
Now nice. Such an upbeat attitude toward race relations and life in general is a far cry from how Simpson felt while committing that robbery of his own sports memorabilia back in 2007. Or when he stabbed two humans to death with a knife in 1994.
