The People v. O.J. Simpson Morally Corrupt Rankings

Inspired by 'RHOBH/American Crime Story' crossover star Faye Resnick, your guide to the suspect behavior of the players in FX's new O.J. series.

The 10-part FX series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson tells the fascinating tale of Nicole Brown Simpson’s real-life killing and the ensuing media frenzy around the murder trial of her famous ex-husband, O.J. Simpson. But more than Simpson, the series is about the birth of reality television and the larger-than-life personalities involved in making the O.J. trial one of America’s biggest media circuses. The trial marked the ascent of the Kardashian family — patriarch Robert Kardashian, the father of some of your favorite E! superstars, was a close friend of Simpson’s — to power and fame, after all.

It also features, in its most brilliant bit of casting, Connie Britton as Faye Resnick, Nicole’s friend. Over 10 years later, Resnick would be referred to as “the morally corrupt Faye Resnick” by Camille Grammer on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. We all know that Resnick’s actions amid and following the Simpson trial are what produced this reputation. But what about the other players? Simpson was charged with murder (and found not guilty; he is currently in prison in Nevada on kidnapping and robbery charges). Marcia Clark reportedly called him “evil” and frothed at the mouth to convict him. Then there’s the media, which couldn’t get enough of the salacious murder case.

So each week, let’s figure out everyone’s standings in The People v. O.J. Simpson and find out who’s truly the most morally corrupt of them all.
