The O.J. Simpson saga has experienced a resurgence of sorts, thanks to a recently-aired TV mini-series and an upcoming documentary on ESPN. For the most part, there hasn't been much new information --- but that could all change soon.
"His friends now say he is going to come out and admit to the murders --- now, after 20 years," Glenn said on The Glenn Beck Program Monday.
According to The New York Daily News, Simpson's old friend Ron Shipp said Simpson "is in total torment today," adding, "he is 300 pounds and he looks horrible. O.J. has always felt his appearance meant everything and now, deep down inside, he is starting to live with himself."
Glenn and his co-hosts expressed their astonishment at hearing about such "warm and fuzzy" descriptions of the accused criminal.
"He's beginning to become comfortable in his own skin," Glenn said.
"Aw, that's great," Stu added.
"Isn't that nice?" Pat agreed, with more than a hint of sarcasm.
While the idea of becoming comfortable with his inner-murderer might finally get the truth out there, Glenn didn't seem to buy that as the real reason.
"I talked to somebody this weekend. They came up to the ranch and stayed with me. And it's somebody who knows fame at a global level, who watched the fame go away," Glenn said.
During their conversation, Glenn and his friend both agreed fame is an actual disease. As for Glenn, he wouldn't wish fame on his worst enemy.
"I think it's something that just eats you and rots you from the core," Glenn said. "And I think when fame starts to go, some people, like O.J. Simpson, will do anything to try to recapture a bit of that glory again and be in the limelight."

Simpson, who is currently serving a nine-to-33-year sentence in state prison as a result of his October 2008 conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping charges, is using a writ of habeas corpus to seek a new trial, claiming he had such bad representation that his conviction should be reversed.
