    WTFing at Tonya's delusional memory at being friends with Nancy, back in the day.

    Nancy: No, we were competitors and teammates.
    Tonya's former coach: "There was not much love lost between them." (Tonya was only friendly to those whose skating was not a threat to her)
    Tonya: We were friends!!!!!

    I still don't think Tonya gets it...the magnitude of what she did. And she lies...lies...lies.

    So do we think the death threat against Tonya that allowed her to get a bye to Nationals might have been the first in a series of lies? :shuffle:

    The goons took Tonya to the mountains and put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her if she didn't say what they told her to say?
    Right.

    I remember E!' True Hollywood Story, she alluded to being sexually assaulted as well.

    oh too bad fred's asleep, i know he loves this part where she points to her laces with a sad face

    and tonya's blaming them for putting her at the end?

    and now she is saying they were going to score her poorly regardless?

    i cant with her, i just cant

    It's crazy the officials didn't have the Ukranian national anthem ready to go, considering Oksana was the reigning World Champion. :huh:

    That scene backstage before the medal ceremony is when I officially fell in love with Nancy Kerrigan.

    Yep, ridiculous.

    Who were the other skaters in that pre-short program practice group, the one packed with all the photographers and reporters?

    I remember mention of Lily Lee of South Korea, but I think I saw a fourth girl.

    she thinks this is an apology, i know she thinks it was. but it isnt. and she seems to really hate nancy for whatever warped reason.

    I still like Nancy. And I'm happy that her life is where she wants it to be.

    Tonya thinks no one wants to hear the story anymore but she shows up for every interview.

    Scott Hamilton's reaction to her lace-brake is priceless.

    [I'm sorry, Scott. I rank on you for squealing when somebody barely lands a jump. But you are a funny man. Don't always be mr. nicey nice]

    i'm disappointed with mary. she didnt call tonya out on any of her lies. but all of these interviews are like that. maybe she is difficult and keeps getting up to leave if you challenge her.

    My best friend, who doesn't care a rusty hoot about skating, also fell for Kerrigan then, too. Aha! A real girl beneath the glitter. Loves her still.

    Scott, though his commentating is annoying, is a true sportsman. He believes that everyone should behave in kind. Tonya did not. And if she doesn't care about this "crap" anymore, why agree to be on the show???

    It's easier to blame others and make excuses than accept responsibility.
    Sadly, my mom has always been Team Tonya and blames Nancy for "getting Tonya into trouble" :rolleyes:
