Tonya Harding, mother give differing accounts of abuse, drinking

Ouch Earlier this week the real Tonya Harding revealed in a new interview that she first heard about the possible plot to take out one of her figure skating competitors two months before the 1994 US National Championships (Nancy

He explained Harding insisted reporters sign "an affidavit staying that they won't ask her anything "about the past" or they'll be fined $25,000".

Tonya Harding has been enjoying the spotlight since the movie came out last month. She denied any knowledge of the attack, but the U.S. Figure Skating Association concluded that she did and banned her for life.

He added, "If we're going to applaud anybody, it should be Nancy Kerrigan, who is the victim of assault and rose up and earned an Olympic medal by working hard and not using a club to get ahead".

When asked if she was upset with the cinematic portrayal of Harding, Kerrigan said the story is no longer part of her life. "I am sad as I write this; but at the same time I'm happy that I had such an adventure with the movie and with recreating a new positive image for her in the public eye". I don't think it's right for Hollywood to accept Tonya Harding. When Tonya pees herself, LaVona declares, "Skate wet!" Harding went on to win the championships in Detroit and secured a spot on the Olympic team as well. Steve Slocum, AP Shawn Eric Eckardt (L), bodyguard of figure skater Tonya Harding, and fellow defendant Derrick Smith (R) are joined by Smith's attorney Robert Goffredi as they face Judge Donald Londer during their arraignment on charges of conspiracy to commit assault in the attack on skater Nancy Kerrigan. She sat at a table with the film's actors and producer.

Harding is portrayed as both a victim and an aggressor and she surely is both. Steve Slocum, AP Tonya Harding's coach Diane Rawlinson speaks to reporters outside her home.

"I was about 10 feet from her", Harding told ABC News.

Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, hired the hit man who knee-capped Kerrigan in 1994 and Harding pleaded guilty to hindering the prosecution. "But they were talking about skating and saying, 'Well, maybe somebody should be taken out so then, you know, she can make it'".

"Why would I throw a steak knife at anybody?"

As far as the drinking, Harding told ABC News that she knew at age 11 half a thermos her mother would take to the rink in the morning was filled with "brandy and the rest was coffee".

"I would have coffee and sometimes I would put brandy flavoring in it", Golden said.
