Finally, it looks like O.J. Simpson has been squeezed for good.

After being convicted on all counts of armed robbery and kidnapping, a Nevada judge has officially nixed Simpson's last gasp bid for a retrial as of this weekend.

His lawyers' arguments weren't strong enough to warrant a new trial.

The Heisman winner and Clarence "C.J." Stewart were convicted in October for robbing two sports memorabilia collectors at gunpoint in a Las Vegas hotel room.

OUCH! Thirteen years after beating the rap for murder, O.J. Simpson is headed to the big house, where he'll totally become the biggest star in the history of jail.

Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass also denied O.J. Simpson's request for bail before their December 5 sentencing. The two face mandatory prison time and could spend the rest of their lives in jail. Here's hoping they receive it.

Better hope for conjugal visits, Christie Prody.

O.J. Simpson was found guilty on all 12 counts stemming from a confrontation in a hotel room last year, including armed robbery and kidnapping.

The guilty verdict came 13 years to the day after he was acquitted in the grisly murders of his ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

This fall's four-week trial kidnapping and robbery trial was seen by some observers as a proxy for those unsatisfied by the absurd 1995 outcome.

O.J. Simpson faces 15 years to life for the kidnapping charge as well as a minimum of at least another 10 years in prison on the other charges.

The football Hall of Fame member showed little emotion as the verdicts were read and the judge denied bail. He will be sentenced December 5.

“He’s extremely upset, extremely emotional,” said his lawyer, Yale Galanter, adding that he would appeal. “We knew it was going to be difficult, we knew the jury was going to be difficult, we knew the jurisdiction would be difficult.”

No tears were shed over here at The Hollywood Gossip office park.

The latest O.J. Simpson case, for those unfamiliar, was bizarre.

Even if you took out the two human beings he killed, O.J. Simpson's rap sheet would be really frickin' long. Seriously, the dude is not un-insane.

With this general sentiment in mind, a Las Vegas prosecutor kicked off OJ's trial yesterday by urging the jury to lock him up for... well, anything.

The Juice - who recently got his ass kicked by his own daughter, Arnelle, along with girlfriend Christie Prody - is on trial for kidnapping and robbery.

But in his opening statement, Clark County Chief Deputy District Attorney Christopher Owens not-so-subtly turned this into a referendum on Simpson overall, with multiple allusions to the 1994 double murder he somehow got away with:

"Ladies and gentlemen, you are the jurors in this case, and the final story is going to be told by you. You will be able to write that final chapter, the chapter of arrogance and hypocrisy, and that will be the true verdict. A verdict you can feel good about."

O.J. Simpson looks remarkably non-homocidal as his latest trial commences.

In case you thought his life couldn't get any sketchier, O.J. Simpson's daughter apparently went berserk, assaulting O.J. and girlfriend Christie Prody!

Cops were called to the home of the disgraced football player and Naked Gun star after he was brutally attacked by his eldest daughter, Arnelle.

O.J. Simpson Mug Shot III

"He was cut on the back of his head, blood was coming out the side of his mouth and his lip was cut," a source told The National Enquirer.

OJ Simpson was feuding with Arnelle Simpson about her mom, Marquerite - OJ's first wife, who has been working at Walmart just to make ends meet because OJ gives her no money. OJ does support girlfriend Christie Prody, natch.

As tension mounted, Arnelle lashed out at OJ for ditching Marquerite, his high school sweetheart, to marry Nicole Brown, whom Simpson later killed.

He was acquitted of Nicole's murder in 1995, although he was found liable for her death in a civil suit a year later. Makes perfect sense, we know.

In a rage, Arnelle shoved O.J. violently into a glass cupboard. Christie Prody tried to intervene and she was subsequently attacked as well.

O.J. Simpson turns 61 today.

We would wish him a happy birthday, but there's nothing to be happy about unless this is the last one he celebrates outside a prison cell (or at all).

But in spite of the fact that we'd love to see the Juice squeezed to death by the judicial system, few can top O.J. in terms of entertainment value.

So here's our mini-tribute to the football hall-of-famer / actor / murderer / kidnapper / Christie Prody boyfriend. Click to enlarge any pics:

One would think that after killing people and somehow walking away a free man, O.J. Simpson would flee the U.S. for good.

Or at least lay a little bit low.

It's The Juice!

Instead, The Juice kidnaps and robs sports memorabilia dealers who have his stuff, gets arrested - and now (drum roll please) plays the victim!

We have no idea why, but Simpson was in Fargo, N.D., when he spilled his guts to Don Haney of Mighty 790 radio yesterday in a terrific rant.

O.J. Simpson in his most familiar environment - a courtroom.

After saying "I believe in juries," and stating that he believes he will get off (and we're not talking about anything Christie Prody might be involved in), O.J. Simpson maintained that his two alleged victims are actually on his side and that he's the victim of the legal system - they're prosecuting him only because of his name.

The best quote: "If I was anybody else, I wouldn't be going to court ... I've got a dollar sign on my back and a bulls eye on my front."

Pack lightly, O.J. The weather's warm where you're headed.

We know, not exactly breaking news here. But a new book from a former manager alleges that a groggy O.J. Simpson, high on marijuana, confessed to double murder.

Mike Gilbert, a memorabilia dealer, also claims that he helped his former friend wiggle out of the murder charges by suggesting how to bloat his hands so they wouldn't fit the notorious bloody gloves.

O.J. Mugshot

Gilbert's book, How I Helped O.J. Get Away With Murder: The Shocking Inside Story of Violence, Loyalty, Regret and Remorse, is due in stores Monday.

He said Simpson smoked pot and taken a sleeping pill and was drinking beer when he confided at his home in Los Angeles' Brentwood neighborhood weeks after his trial what happened that infamous night of June 12, 1994.

As he tells it, O.J. Simpson said he went to his ex-wife's condominium but did not bring a knife with him. Simpson told him that his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, had one in her hand when she opened the door.

In a soft mumble, Simpson told him: "If she hadn't opened that door with a knife in her hand ... she'd still be alive."

Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman were stabbed to death at the entrance to her condominium. The knife was never found.

O.J. Simpson will stop at nothing.

The former Heisman Trophy winner, NFL star and actor had a pretty good life going until 1994, when he killed his ex-wife and her friend.

O.J. Mugshot

He somehow beat the rap for this, and in turn, might have lived out his days in seclusion, laughing at the legal system, but no, not O.J. Simpson.

In a shameless attempt to cash in, O.J. authored a book entitled If I Did It - a "hypothetical" account of the gruesome double-murder.

Simpson has had police called to his house for domestic incidents involving his girlfriend Christie Prody (yes, someone dates O.J.) several times.

He has been found guilty of pirating DirecTV, guilty of owing over $1.4 million in past income taxes, and just last year, was arrested for robbing peeps in Vegas.

OJ Simpson: From courtroom to board room?

It should come as a surprise to no one, then, that he has reportedly asked Donald Trump to be a part of next season's Celebrity Apprentice.

"Simpson really wants to do it. Trump and NBC are thinking about it, but are being very cautious," a source told the New York Post.

"There's a certain amount of heat associated with Simpson."

Yes. Yes there is. Such as when O.J. told his fellow thugs to "get some heat" and go rob the sports paraphernalia dealers who had "his" stuff.

We know Donald Trump is all about publicity, but we sincerely hope there's a conscience somewhere beneath the bad comb-over.

Miami police say O.J. Simpson's girlfriend, Christie Prody, suffered bruises and head injuries on Monday - but it was because of a fall - and not at the hand of the Juice, as several celebrity gossip sources speculated.

Hey, the guy did beat up various wives and kill one of them, so in this case, we can understand why The National Enquirer might jump the gun.

O.J. Simpson Mug Shot III

The Enquirer reported that O.J. Simpson was being investigated as Christie Prody was taken to a Miami hospital with head trauma and bruising.

According to the Enquirer, investigators said from the damage to Christie Prody's body, they believe she was beaten up hard. One detective even said he has never seen such severe bruises on a woman before.

Christie Prody: O.J. Simpson's girlfriend for years. Why? Who knows.

The Miami Police were alerted by hospital authorities after doctors found that Christie Prody was bleeding from her brain â€" and also had numerous, large bruises and abrasions on her face, arms, legs and buttocks.

But cops later told the celebrity news site TMZ that Prody's injuries appear to be "consistent" with a fall she supposedly took "at a gas station."

They don't consider this a criminal case, and that O.J. was never a suspect.

Prody, who has a long rap sheet of her own, has been going out with this guy for years and hasn't turned up dead, so we'd consider the relationship a success.

As for O.J. Simpson, his recent arrest for violation of bail was aired on the MyNetwork series Jail. He's due in Las Vegas for his robbery case in April.
