(Note: This article has been edited due to the National Enquirer posting an article on its website. When the first version of this story appeared, only Radar Online was reporting the Simpson-to-become-televangelist story.)

Celebrity news site Radar Online has reported that O. J. Simpson wants to become a televangelist. Radar Online's source for this unusual story is the National Enquirer.

Norman Pardo, Simpson's manager, said that "O.J. is very religious now, and he’s been counseling other inmates with Bible studies for months."

Documentary filmmaker Kenny Saylors told the Enquirer, "O.J. has rediscovered his faith and we’re interested in working with him. We’ve come to the conclusion that prison has actually set him free."

If Simpson really does want to become a televangelist, he must wait for a couple of years. In 2008 Simpson received a 33 year sentence for armed robbery. CNN reported that he may qualify for parole after serving 9 years.
