Brian Gerard "Kato" Kaelin is an American radio and television personality who gained fame as a witness during the 1994–95 murder trial of O. J. Simpson...
Sometimes people just want you to fail. Except your really good friends. I've always known who my best friends were.
People should realize that I shot a Coke commercial back in 1986. So, you know, I've been around a long time. I carry my Screen Actors Guild Card.
Never live with someone that won the Heisman.
At the time that I knew them, they were not living together. They began dating again after their divorce, so I didn't really see fighting.
I'm not going to just fade out, I know.
I ended up living at OJ's because Nicole bought a home that no longer had a guest house. OJ offered his guest house to me. Anybody in LA looking for a place knows the best places to live are guest houses.
The circumstance is the incredible part, but I always knew in my heart that something was going to be out there, just for the world to notice me. It sounds so cocky, but it's happening.
I was at an acting academy for seven years prior to the trial.
It's incredible when I'm out in these towns. I have people telling me they were waiting for hours just to meet me and get my autograph. I feel so guilty. I always feel like I have to give them more than just Kato Kaelin.
The media works in sound bites. They can make you look like a genius or stupid.
I believe in my heart Simpson is guilty.
I think that money is the root of all evil. I've seen it happen.
I don't want to be Kato, the trial guy. It's like everything I do is under a microscope.
I have contact with no one involved in the trial.
I think the prosecution had all the evidence in front of them to have won the case.
I want people to realize that the domestic abuse charges happened in 1989. I didn't meet any of them until 1993.
I was never OJ's closest pal, and the media would say that over and over, but I wasn't his enemy either.
I'm the guy, I'm kind of like the, uh, Everyman, so I think people just relate to that.
If there's something that you hear on TV about me, just call me and I'll tell you if it's true.
Sometimes people who get wealthy when they are very, very young, it's a curse to them. They don't realize it.
Thoughts would go in and out of my mind, but I didn't want to believe that he could have done it.
Right, from behind the wall from where I was sitting.
I thought it was possible that O.J. could have done something. It crossed my mind. I was thinking about the events of everything and going, Why did I hear that? I was going, No, it can't be, and just all that stuff was adding up.
Did you notice anything occur in your room as a result of those thumps on the wall?
It's a show where I go across America, I knock on doors of the unsuspecting and invite myself in to spend a weekend with the family,
I'm not afraid of O.J. now.
There's been so much media about me being a surfer dude and a lot of other jobs. I guess it's time to prove myself, to let the people know, heck, I've a brain.
