Khloe Kardashian Looking Forward to Seeing FX’s ‘People v. OJ Simpson’

Khloe Kardashian hasn’t screened FX’s “People v. OJ Simpson” series yet, like the majority of the press did over the holiday break, but she plans to watch.

Speaking to a room of journalists at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena Calif. on Wednesday, Kardashian — who was on hand to promote her FYI talk show “Kocktails with Khloe” — said, “I would definitely like to see it.”

The 10-episode Ryan Murphy series heavily features young actors who portray Kardashian and her famous siblings, along with Selma Blair who was cast as her mother Kris Jenner, and so far (six episodes were sent to press) the prominent inclusion of the Kardashian family has been pretty much the only point to receive some not-so-stellar commentary from critics. (The majority of early Twitter buzz from press regarding the show has been off-the-charts enthusiastic.)

“My mom and Selma Blair become really good friends. She was at our Christmas Eve party,” Kardashian said on the TCA stage. Jenner and Blair were seen in a photo together, at the time of the latter’s casting for the part, in which she plays the 30-something Jenner, who was close friends with the murdered Nicole Brown Simpson, OJ’s ex-wife.

Kardashian added, “My mom has way more investment into that [series]. She helped out a bit with some of the characters.”

As for any concern over the way her family is represented, Khloe said: “It’s neither here nor there — however they want to portray us is fine. I still want to see it.”
