O.J. to confess?

I saw a link to this yesterday at some UK paper; now, Patterico has mentioned it, so I guess I'll bring it up too. It seems Oprah Winfrey is trying to set up a "confess all" interview with the former NFL great in prison where he'll confess to killing his wife and Ron Goldman:

According to the National Enquirer, the interview is set to be filmed after Simpson confessed he killed the pair in self-defense to a producer from inside prison.

‘Oprah has been in touch with O.J. for the past year,’ a source told the magazine. She contacted him in prison to explore the possibility that he might give her an interview.

‘He has always been a big fan of hers, but for a long time he was reluctant to say he did the crime or give the details of how it happened.’

According to the insider, Simpson recently decided to go through with the confession after he was contacted again by one of Oprah’s producers.

‘He told the producer: “Tell Oprah that yes, I did it. I killed Nicole, but it was in self-defence. She pulled a knife on me and I had to defend myself”,’ the insider was quoted as saying.

He reportedly then went on to give a full account of what happened on the night of the murders on June 12 1994.

Confess to what we all knew anyway? Gee, wow. But 'ya gotta love this moron: Self defense!! The guy is a former NFL player and not just an average one. He's one of the greatest ever to play the game. And he expects us to believe he had to kill two people in order to defend himself?? And he doesn't even say that Goldman pulled a knife, only Nicole. Anyone who thinks OJ couldn't have disarmed her very easily are just as gullible as those who believed he didn't kill the pair in the first place.

My question is why? Why confess now? What's in it for him? Is it guilt? That's the only thing I can think of. Will anyone who supported him say they were wrong?

If his story is true, this proves that it is essential that abused women obtain firearms to deal with their abusers. A pistol is more effective than a knife against a larger, stronger assailant.
