Sigh. O.J. Simpson still thinks he's innocent.

The double murderer-slash-armed robber who told his co-conspirators to "get some heat" before pulling a gun on some schmoe is playing the only card he has left - that of the race variety - in the hopes of being sprung from a Nevada state prison.

Simpson filed an appeal on Tuesday with the Nevada Supreme Court over the hotel room confrontation where he and his roving gang of miscreant thugs punked two sports memorabilia dealers - finally landing the Juice in jail where he belongs.

The miserable excuse for a human being is actually claiming his conviction was tainted by judicial misconduct - namely a lack of racial diversity on the jury.

O.J. Mugshot

THE WORST: O.J., shockingly, is a regular in our celebrity mug shots gallery.

Orenthal the knife-wielding maniac also suggests in his appeal that there were errors in both his sentencing and the instructions given to the jury.

There is no indication the court will hear the appeal or when they could make a ruling. Our best guess is approximately three days from never.

O.J. Simpson is set to serve 9-33 years in the slammer.

No word if he's still trying to hunt down the "real killer" of his ex-wife and her friend while killing (sorry) all that time behind bars. If he every needs any help with that enduring mission, he can always call up Hulk Hogan.

Well, at least the shadiest Hulk Hogan-related story going forward won't be the resemblance of his girlfriend to his daughter.

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the former WWE star berates ex-wife Linda Bollea for leaving him for Charlie Hill, aka "some shaggy-haired pool boy 30 years her junior."

It's an understandable reaction from the Hulkster. Not as understandable? How far he takes it.

"I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody's throat," Hogan told the magazine, explaining his frustration with the entire situation by drawing a parallel to the murderous former running back:

"You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater [Florida] and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife... I totally understand OJ. I get it."

Hulk Hogan says he can relate to O.J. Simpson. Next, he'll tell us why Chris Benoit gets a bad rap.

In related news, Britney Spears hates pants, Spencer Pratt is a media whore, Grey's Anatomy has jumped the shark, Zac Efron is hot, and we could go on ad nauseam.

We realize this is not a breaking story, but considering the source, it's interesting. O.J. Simpson’s former attorney, Robert Shapiro, was asked by a reporter what he thinks of his infamous client while at a party for Mickey Rourke’s Golden Globe win.

It's The Juice!

Shapiro was quick to respond: “He’s a sociopath.” Did Shapiro always think that, Fox News wondered? Shapiro smiled. “What do you think?” he answered rhetorically.

Hey, some girls are into the psycho thing. Right, Christie Prody?

If someone relates this anecdote to O.J. Simpson, recently sentenced to prison at long, long last (for his 2007 kidnapping and armed robbery crimes, not the two people he killed), he may wish he could off his former litigator, too. Oh well.

Shapiro is not completely removed, though. He has remained very friendly with the famous children of O.J.'s late best friend, attorney Robert Kardashian.

The famous children, of course, are - you guessed it - Kim Kardashian and a kouple of her publicity-kraving sisters. Their mother, Kris, has since remarried, trying the knot with former Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner.

His son is Brody Jenner, of course. It’s quite a group.

O.J. Simpson has been transferred from a Las Vegas jail to High Desert State Prison in Indian Springs, where he will begin his confusing 9-to-33-year prison sentence.

Here Orenthal's latest - and hopefully, last - mug shot. Although he may be eligible for parole as soon as 2017. Remember, this conviction was for robbing the sports memorabilia dealers last year, not the two people he killed in 1994.

Hope you packed lightly, O.J. They provide the orange jumpsuits for you in the slammer, and we all know you don't need to dress warmly for your ultimate destination.

O.J. Simpson was sentenced to 15 years in prison for armed robbery after a judge rejected his apology, saying, "It was much more than stupidity."

Simpson was convicted on October 3 of 12 criminal counts, including armed robbery, kidnapping and burglary after he and some buddies broke into a Nevada hotel room, attempting to recover his allegedly stolen sports memorabilia.

The 61-year-old Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Hall of Famer stood both shackled and stone-faced as Judge Jackie Glass read the punishment.

A rambling, five-minute plea for leniency, in which he was simultaneously apologizing for the holdup as a foolish mistake and trying to justify his actions, ended with O.J. Simpson choking back tears. And earned him zero sympathy.

The judge emphasized that it was a violent confrontation in which at least one gun was drawn, and someone could have been shot. She said the evidence was overwhelming, with the planning, confrontation and aftermath all on tape.

Hard to argue with that.

JUICE NO LONGER LOOSE! At long, long last, O.J. Simpson is headed for the long prison stint he so richly deserves and worked so tirelessly to attain.

The judge said several times that her sentence in the Vegas robbery case had absolutely nothing to do with O.J. Simpson's controversial acquittal in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

Simpson was immediately led away to prison after the judge refused to permit him to go free on bail while he appeals. His co-defendant and former golfing buddy, Clarence "C.J." Stewart, also was sentenced to at least 15 years.

The Juice could be paroled after as little as nine years. Maybe Christie Prody will even be there when he gets out. True love always waits.

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.

Welcome, celebrity gossip fans around the world, to The Hollywood Gossip Caption Contest, our Friday tradition. Who won this week's Caption Contest?

There were plenty of good ones to choose from, but we went with the entry sent it to us by TheJuice. Thanks to all for playing, and good luck this week!

I told you guys I didn't kill them... Oh wait, wrong trial. Man I've committed so many crimes I lose track.

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.

"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.
