Tonya Harding ends awkward interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain

  • Dan Shaughnessy asked Nancy Kerrigan about 'I, Tonya.' Here's what she said.

Former World Champion figure skater Tonya Harding nearly walked out of the show "Good Morning Britain" on Monday after a heated agreement with host Piers Morgan.

Dody Teachman, who was her coach at the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Minneapolis, Minnesota, still coaches Harding today.

There was something disconcerting watching Oprah drop her powerhouse speech about ending harassment and assault while a convicted felon sat a few feet away. We often forget that there's a human being behind those old Saturday Night Live and David Letterman jokes, someone who likely never could have had a fair shake in life.

"I, Tonya" was released on December 8, to critical acclaim. Gillooly was sentenced to two years in prison, and Eckardt was sentenced to 18 months, and they let authorities know that Tonya was involved.

Harding now tells ABC she "knew something was up" several weeks before the attack. I haven't seen the movie. At one point, LaVona throws a paring knife into her daughter's arm.

Former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding says she was scared for her own safety after the infamous 1994 baton attack on her fellow Olympic figure skater and longtime competitor Nancy Kerrigan. February 1, 1994: Gillooly pleads guilty to racketeering in exchange for a 24-month sentence February 10, 1994: Harding sues U.S. Olympic Committee to stop a planned hearing to discuss whether she should participate in the Olympics. She denied having any involvement in the attack, but pleaded guilty to conspiring to hinder prosecution. A judge places her on probation for three years and orders her to pay $160,000 in fines and contributions. Stant clubbed Kerrigan's knee, keeping her out of the 1994 championships, but she was able to compete in the Olympics all the same, winning silver.

Kerrigan, meanwhile, found the mental and physical mettle to come back from that attack and skate the program of her life.

Margot Robbie skates circles around the competition in the true-life tragicomedy I, Tonya. She then went on to box professionally, where she even appeared on the TV show, Celebrity Boxing. "She has a son that she loves dearly". "But it's my faith in myself and in my father that comes back to me and makes me get back up off my butt and be something worth being proud of", she said.

The movie puts us in Harding's corner early, as we meet her abrasive, frequently married, frequently single mother LaVona Golden.

On Thursday, as ABC's special aired, Janney won a Critics' Choice Award for best supporting actress for portraying Golden, and on Sunday, she won a Golden Globe for the role. "I think many people are victims every day, people need to stand up for themselves, that abuse shouldn't be happening anymore".

"I am so over the glamorisation of a villain simply because she was born on the 'wrong side of the tracks, '" he snapped. "She wants forgiveness. She wants to see me".

The incident, which became known as "the whack" heard around the world, left Kerrigan's hopes of qualifying for the U.S. Olympic team in jeopardy at the time, though she did make the team in the end.
