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

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

Kerrigan's injury forces her to drop out of the skating competition, which Tonya Harding wins January 11, 1994: FBI investigates allegation that Harding's bodyguard, Shawn Eckardt, and her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, orchestrated the attack on Kerrigan.

Harding discussed her history with abuse in the ABC interview, insisting there wasn't "more than one day a week, sometimes, that I didn't get beaten". Tonight, don't miss the astonishing interview AND jaw-dropping television event - "Truth & Lies: The Tonya Harding Story", tonight at 9 on ABC7. Golden doesn't have all bad things to say about her daughter.

Also interviewed are Harding's coach, Dody Teachman, a number of others familiar with her life, as well as actors Margot Robbie, who plays Harding in I, Tonya, Allison Janney, who portrays her mother, and Sebastian Stan, who plays Gillooly.

Bringing up the attack once more, Morgan pressed, "You did know what was happening, what they were planning to do didn't you?"

"As you say, I was the victim", she said. For the first time, Harding admitted that she knew ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and his friend Shawn Eckardt orchestrated the plan to injure fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan ahead of the 1994 Olympics. If you liked her profile on Tonya Harding, I recommend next checking out the one on Britney Spears. Kerrigan has been open about suffering multiple miscarriages in the time between having Matthew and Brian, which she revealed while appearing on Dancing With The Stars. Harding claimed her mother once hit her in the bathroom at an ice rink, recalling, "I remember she dragged me into the bathroom and beat me with a hairbrush, literally". She gives as good as she gets. I genuinely thought we were these people and we were off the set, running down the street screaming at each other and the cameras are running after us.

If you don't think we care about losers more than winners, consider the story of Lias Andersson, the 19-year-old captain of Sweden's junior national hockey team.

Harding also told ABC News that she is done apologizing. 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.

Harding and her mother have an estranged relationship. She added, "Why would I throw a steak knife at anybody?"

Gillooly was sentenced to two years in prison for his role in the attack and Harding received three years of probation and was fined $100,000 for conspiring to hinder prosecution. She did not participate in the 2014 ESPN 30 for 30: The Price of Gold special about the attack. "But they were talking about skating, and, 'well maybe somebody should be taken out so then she can make it'". I have my life.

As if to prove that point even further, at Sunday's Golden Globes, Hollywood's perennial also-ran to the Academy Awards, Harding accompanied Robbie to the ceremony.
