"I think she loves it and I think she should because the movie tells a more nuanced side of her story".

In the ABC special, the 47-year-old Harding "opens up about her life now, her childhood and her past, the attack on Kerrigan and the tumultuous relationships she had with her mother, LaVona "Sandy" Golden, and Gillooly". The extra attention on the figure skater led to her receiving several lucrative endorsement deals ahead of her competing in the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics, which totaled several million dollars.

The big arthouse opening last weekend, and one of the reasons the Broadway was seeing so much business, was "I, Tonya", director Craig Gillespie's acid-tongued satirical comedy chronicling the career of Olympic skater and tabloid sensation Tonya Harding.

But Morgan, a host known for grilling his guests on live TV, was not one to be defeated. "You all disrespected me and it hurt". This is no more apparent than during a moment near the end of the film in which Tonya looks directly into the camera and effectively tells us we're as complicit in her professional downward spiral as her actual abusers.

The matchup was billed as Tonya "TNT" Harding vs. Paula "The Arkansas Pounder" Jones.

Lest I be accused of putting an "alt-right" or "white supremacist" spin on the film, don't take my word for it. Manohla Dargis of the New York Times is not ordinarily spotted wearing a MAGA cap, or unduly fixated on the plight of the white working class.

Harding, who was also featured in the special, said her mother "was not a good one".

"I don't know, " said Kerrigan.

"I, Tonya" treats Kerrigan as comic relief; the movie crowd burst out laughing for Kerrigan's brief appearances on screen but my stomach was turning.

But Kerrigan did watch - and approve of - the spoof trailer for "I, Nancy", starring Olivia Munn as Kerrigan.

In the interview with ABC, Golden said that "Harding was the youngest of four children".

In 1994, Harding became infamous for her role in planning an attack fellow Olympian Nancy Kerrigan. The FBI found the note, in Harding's handwriting, in the trash. Pascal Rondeau, Getty Images A sign showing support for figure skater Tonya Harding sits outside her home in Beavercreek, Oregon.

"Enough apologizing", Harding said.

In terms of winners and losers, Kerrigan still came out on top, but Harding's raw talent and drive deserved to be recognized in a great film since they're not likely to in any other way.

Both Gillooly and Eckardt pleaded guilty to racketeering for their involvement in the incident.

Kerrigan was also asked to share her opinion on Harding's return to the spotlight thanks to the film, which portrays Harding somewhat as a victim of her surroundings, detailing her reportedly abusive relationships with her mother and her own husband, Jeff Gillooly.
