'I was the victim': Kerrigan snaps over I, Tonya

'I was the victim': Kerrigan snaps over I, Tonya

On the evening of January 11, 2018, ABC News showcased Harding in a 2-hour "Truth and Lies" documentary, and as hunters, we couldn't help but notice a few interesting visuals. The 47-year-old former world champion explained that the reason she agreed to the movie was to be able to tell the people what she really had to go through at that time.

Though others have defended Harding, with one person writing on Twitter, "Genuinely confused by how many people are determined to hate Tonya Harding even now".

Harding's "do-over" statements come after Kerrigan told The Boston Globe that she has "nothing to say" about I, Tonya, the buzzy biopic that depicts Harding's life and the events that led up to the infamous 1994 kneecapping that almost ended Kerrigan's career.

Tonya Harding didn't actually attack Nancy Kerrigan, the movie emphasizes, but it also never completely spells out how much she knew about the plot to intimidate Kerrigan paid for by her ex-husband-turned-manager. Working off a reality that is already pretty out there, I, Tonya presents a dramatic mock-u-mentary retelling of these real-life events, which leave eyebrows raised from start to finish. Per USA Today columnist Christine Brennan, in a Facebook post titled, "I, Tonya, is Now Goodbye, Tonya!", Rosenberg detailed why, after Harding made a request that every reporter who asked about the past be fined a hefty sum of $25,000, he could not longer represent her.

Tonya Harding: "It popped in my head two or three days after we got back (that Gillooly and Eckardt were involved)". "I don't want her anywhere near me", Harding says.

When Harding's love fades and competitive fame rises, the estranged Gillooly tries to win her back by sending Kerrigan a threatening letter to scare her off the ice. "I remember telling them, I go, 'What the hell are you talking about?"

This week the New York Times published a mostly sympathetic story about Harding in which Harding insists you can't understand what happened without knowing what happened before and after the Kerrigan attack.

If dredging up that tawdry subject all these years later seems tabloid-worthy, and little else, you should also know that the movie is a meditation on the elusiveness of truth.

Anyway, if you feel like crying you can read the whole thing here. At one point, LaVona throws a paring knife into her daughter's arm. There's no doubt that Harding was a victim of Gillooly's violent temper, and her eventual criminal sentence may have been a bit harsh, but I'm not convinced she was quite as innocent as the movie suggests. Brodesser-Akner is a writer whose work on damaging, sexist media narratives is some of the sharpest I've seen. In a rare appearance, Golden denied the claims.

"Not right now", Kerrigan told Shaugnessy.

As Tony Price complains, "we just don't get it". "Tonya herself called us trailer trash". She alleges that her mother "dragged me into the bathroom and beat me with a hairbrush, literally". Robach asked. "Not a good one", Harding said.
