Tonya Harding admits that she knew of plan to attack Nancy Kerrigan

Tonya Harding admits that she knew of plan to attack Nancy Kerrigan

"They didn't just give them to me".

The 48-year-old was asked to comment about the new movie starring Caitlin Carver as the younger version of her and Robbie as the titular character.

In the special, which aired Thursday night, Harding confessed that she had an inkling of the plan between her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and his friend, Shawn Eckardt, to attack Kerrigan prior to the 1994 Olympics.

"I did overhear them talking about stuff, where, 'Well, maybe we should take somebody out so we can make sure she gets on the team.' And I remember telling them, I go, 'What the hell are you talking about?"

Tonya Harding of Portland, Ore., waves to the crowd after being presented awards for winning her second national championship during ceremonies in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit, Mich., Jan. 8, 1994. "That's why I'm here", she added.

"And I sincerely wish her the best", Rosenberg said.


Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan in the days before the infamous beatdown. Like, that's my role in this whole thing. On social media, the Olympic figure skater slammed the movie for the glorification of Harding.

Harding, 47, has been enjoying red carpet appearances alongside Margot Robbie and Allison Janney for the sympathetic film, which paints her as a victim of abuse at the hands of her mother and her estranged then-husband, Jeff Gillooly. "That was the smallest little bits and pieces". I mean she is very unapologetic about who she is and very willing to call out unfairness when she saw it. "My face was put through a mirror, not just broken onto it. Through it".

Ms Golden also denied Harding's claims that they were "trailer trash". Tonya's story is filled with serious hardship and no shortage of alleged domestic violence, which the real-life athlete overcame.

Harding met Price singing karaoke at a skating-themed restaurant in Washington and proposed to him a few weeks later. Harding had released a statement through her attorney categorically denying all accusations that she was involved in the assault on skater Nancy Kerrigan. "It reminded me of a tampon or panty liner".

Harding has claimed she was constantly beaten by Golden, who is shown throwing a steak knife at her daughter in the movie I, Tonya, which lodged in her arm. "I don't care how it portrays me. I could care less about that movie than the dirt outside".
