With the launch of the much ballyhooed and highly-controversial series on the FX network, THE PEOPLE VS. O.J. SIMPSON: AMERICAN CRIME STORY, for which the Goldman family was not consulted,  Wednesday, February 3, 3 pm ET The Halli Casser-Jayne Show talks to Kim Goldman in a conversation you won’t soon forget when Ms. Goldman joins Halli at her table to talk about her book CAN’T FORGIVE  and more.

ojsimpsongloveDon’t tell Kim Goldman she needs to find closure. Don’t ask her to forgive and forget. When Kim Goldman was just 22, her older brother, Ron Goldman was brutally murdered by unconvicted football legend and film star O.J. Simpson. Ron and Kim were very close, and her devastation was compounded by the shocking not guilty verdict in what was to be called The Trial of the Century. Now twenty years later, Kim Goldman shares what she calls her “twenty year battle” with O.J. Simpson in her book CAN’T FORGIVE.

OJSimpsonAmericanCrimeStoryCounseled by friends, strangers and even Oprah to “find that closure,” Kim chose a different route. She chose to fight and that fight would be subject of tabloid fodder now nearing a quarter of a century. Repeatedly, Kim and her family pursued Simpson by every legal means possible. Foiled over and again, they ultimately achieved a small measure of justice.

Closure? Who says? Let’s talk! Kim Goldman’s fight with O.J. Simpson on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, February 3, 3 pm ET. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
