Oprah Winfrey Wants O.J. Simpson to Confess to Her

Barry Brecheisen/WireImage(CHICAGO) -- Oprah Winfrey recently ended her long-running TV talk show, and on Thursday, she revealed the one guest she wished she could have interviewed.

Speaking at the industry expo The Cable Show 2011 in Chicago, Winfrey said, "I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me," a statement that was greeted with cheers at the Q&A session.

Oprah hasn't given up on the idea, either.

"And I am going to make that happen people," she declared.  "I don't just want the interview.  I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson."

Simpson was acquitted of murdering his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1995.  The former NFL star is currently behind bars in Las Vegas, sentenced in 2008 to nine to 33 years in prison for unrelated robbery, weapons, and kidnapping charges.

Winfrey also addressed concerns about her ratings-challenged OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, explaining that with The Oprah Winfrey Show now finished, she now has "the ability to commit my full energy, feet first, body immersed" into OWN.
