I’m so incredibly not interested.
Tonya Harding. The airhead’s airhead.
Why is this skank’s story even a story anymore? Of all the tabloid trash to rake up ...
Joe Price better sleep with one eye open.
Bwitch’ll take him out.
I don’t get this. (I don’t want to go to the NYT to read the article) but it seems sympathetic to her.
The woman conspired to assault someone (Nancy Kerrigan, while not very likeable or easy to identify with, was simply doing her job) and could have ended her career.
I just don’t see how, in whatever light, this woman could be a sympathetic figure.
I actually think this is an interesting story. I wouldn’t defend Tonya too much, because she had at least some involvement, and clubbing your competitor is considered bad sportsmanship everywhere, so she is damaged goods.
But the Olympics are a sleazy business. Kerrigan was not really a great skater. But she was pretty and telegenic. Harding was a very good skater, but gave off a poor white trash vibe and so she wasn’t going to be a TV star and she wasn’t going to get a medal. Because the Olympics are about selling stuff. Kerrigan was saleable.
Kerrigan ended up becoming more famous than she ever would have in other circumstances, and Harding definitely paid a steep price. Deserved, sure, but you pay your penalty and move on — she has never been allowed to.
The media creates Good People and Bad People.
Tonya Harding, Hillary and Obama were created as Good People.
Donald Trump and all Republicans have been created as Bad people.
This issue, for me, goes way beyond the concept of a skater getting clubbed on the knee. This about how we are all manipulated all the time and some of the people who end up with the short end of the stick (hey — Conservatives! Do you ever feel like you’re getting the short end?) some of those people just feel like lashing out is the only way to get what they have worked for.
Her mistake was very large. But I think I understand how that happened.
WHY?! why? Why?! WHY?! why? Why?! WHY?! why? Why?!
Another one of those people that you just wish would disappear: Oprah, Chelsea, Rosanne, any one of the Clintons, etc. What a horrible person who keeps showing up for publicity.
50 will get you 100 that this marriage won’t go past a year.
She and her husband would spend hours hunting together, just as she used to do with her beloved father Mr. Price with a muzzleloader and Ms. Harding with a bow and arrow because she wanted to give the animal a 50-50 chance to make it interesting and fair (and also because felons arent technically supposed to possess guns in Washington State).
I find it amusing when the truth is divulged.
Now they can knee cap anyone who gets in their way..together.
Better than Gillooly, I guess. .
Her only crime was marrying a dumbazz who had bigger dumbazzes for friends
Im not apologizing to that backstabbing skank ho. Yes, I took a minute out of my day but it felt so good to say it.
There’s a reason why she’s a regular on the TV show World’s Dumbest... But I can’t think of it right now.
Yeah, right. Click onto the nyt to read about harding.
Tonya was a great skater. One of the all time greats.
But as a person she was not so good.
Pressure, fame (or the desire for it) and ego make people do a lot of stupid things.
