Tonya Harding Would Like Her Apology Now

  Tonya Harding Would Like Her Apology Now In the movie, “I, Tonya,” the disgraced figure skater looks back on the 1994 Nancy Kerrigan scandal and her struggles to tell her side of the story.BATTLE GROUND, Wash. — Tonya Harding’s name isn’t Tonya Harding anymore. “My name is Tonya Price,” she said, when she saw me taking notes. In 2010, she had just returned home to Washington from Los Angeles, where she’d been doing another one of the odd jobs she’d collected over the years — color commentary on ill-advised video stunts for the TV show “World’s Dumbest.” She was still in her cute L.A. clothes, still made up, and she went out to Timbers, a local restaurant.

I think most people know that she did.” “I knew that something was up ,” Harding tells ABC in the clip above. Asked if she said to Gilloly to go through with the plot, she says “no.”

Harding appears in ABC’s special “Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story” where she opens up about her notorious past as well as her DON'T give in to your child's anxieties, psychologist says . 52 Books Every Girl Should Read Before High School: Excellent books for voracious readers.

Former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding admitted to knowing “something was up” in the months before the attack on her teammate and rival Nancy Kerrigan in a new interview nearly 25 years after the scandal.

Harding has long maintained she neither knew about nor agreed to ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and his friend Shawn Eckardt’s plan to bash Kerrigan’s knee with a baton.

But in a clip from Harding’s interview with ABC News released Tuesday, she admitted to overhearing the pair plotting a possible attack.

“I did, however, 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? I can skate,’” Harding told ABC News.

  Tonya Harding Would Like Her Apology Now In the movie, “I, Tonya,” the disgraced figure skater looks back on the 1994 Nancy Kerrigan scandal and her struggles to tell her side of the story.“I’m going, damn, he’s got beautiful eyes,” she said. “I mean the eyes are the center to your soul, O.K.? You might have a nice butt, but I want to see the eyes.” Within weeks she proposed to him. Within those same weeks she was carrying their baby. She had never met anyone so gentle or kind; she had never known a man to just love her, not for her skating abilities or for what she might potentially become, but for her. They married, and she changed her last name, like lots of people do. O.K., I told her. Tonya Price it is.

Former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding said she knows people still think she ’s “the bad person” years after the now -famous 1994 baton attack on her Olympic teammate and longtime rival Nancy Kerrigan .

Disgraced former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding is opening up about the infamous 1994 attack on her bitter rival Nancy Kerrigan . “I do care. I mean, I care, but I don’t care,” Harding told ABC News about still worrying what everyone thinks about her 23 years after Kerrigan ’s infamous 1994 beat

“This was, like, a month or two months before (the attack),” Harding said. “But they were talking about skating and saying, ‘Well, maybe somebody should be taken out so then, you know, she can make it.’”

Kerrigan was clubbed in the knee during a practice session for the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit.

The assailant was found to have been hired by Gillooly and Eckardt.

Both men have since changed their names.

News cameras captured Kerrigan shrieking in pain after the attack.

“It makes you cringe, hearing it,” Harding said in the interview. “Because you know how much that it had to have hurt.”

Gillooly and Eckardt both pleaded guilty to racketeering and were sentenced to prison.

Harding denied being involved in the attack but pleaded guilty to conspiring to hinder prosecution.

She was fined $160,000, sentenced to three years’ probation and 500 hours of community service.

She was banned from the U.S. Figure Skating Association for life.

The interview follows the release of “I, Tonya,” starring actress Margot Robbie about Harding’s life.

“Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story” will air on Jan. 11.
