The O.J. drama of the past has been stirred up again, decades later, thanks in part to the TV movie airing next month, but also because of the Faye Resnick/Kathryn Edwards drama that has been airing on RHOBH!
Kyle’s BFF Faye Resnick recently spoke to People Magazine on her thoughts on the drama being discussed again along with her thoughts on next month’s TV mini-series: American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
“Ever since it was announced that Ryan Murphy intended to produce The People v. O.J. Simpson, I have been inundated with the question as to ‘How do I feel about it?’ All I can say is, for me, it was personally the most heartbreaking tragedy that altered my life forever. On average, two women every week die from domestic abuse. To lose my loving friend Nicole, who seemed at one point to defy these odds, is beyond devastating. The thought of reliving the events of her death and the trial that followed is catastrophic for all who knew and loved Nicole and Ron.
My only wish is that the series will bring to the forefront the horrors of domestic abuse that roughly 3.5 million women continue to experience every year. Instead of opening painful wounds for many people, or becoming a pointless media circus, I’m hoping this series serves as another chance to remind the American public that domestic abuse remains a lethal issue, even 22 years after this nightmare.
In the United States, a women is beaten in her home every nine-seconds by the man they love. The sad fact remains that there are less shelters for battered woman and their children in our country than there are animal shelters. Sadly, we cannot change the past and no good can come from retelling their stories, other than if the series serves as a call to action to help others who are sadly still living in such a nightmare.”
Faye has refused to discuss the O.J. and Nicole drama on RHOBH and with this statement is making it clear that she is not going to get into details. I find it irritating that she wants to pretend like she never wrote the book and almost refuses to acknowledge that she spoke out about her friend’s private life during a terrible time.
I think Kathryn Edwards deserved an apology from Faye and she definitely did not get a sincere one, as Faye gave a generalized apology to the whole table.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out during the rest of the season.
What are your thoughts on Faye’s statement and her portrayal on RHOBH?
