    Poor woman. She does look a lot older than she actually is.

    :(

    But I wish her the best with this marriage! Lots of health and happiness to both!

    :cheer2:

    Eh, she looks like she's in her forties, maybe, in that shot, not unreasonable for someone 39 who probably hasn't been religious about sunscreen. (Her hair, on the other hand, is stuck in 1991.) She looks better than Nicole Bobek's going to look if she doesn't get clean while in prison. If anything she's lost some weight since the last interview I saw with her, which CAN make you look a little older (lose body fat once you're middle-aged and you lose some of the 'padding' in your face, which makes any wrinkles or sagging more obvious--like that woman in the Nutrisystem commercials talking to Marie Osmond about how she lost fifty pounds and feels great and I just think "And you now LOOK like you're seventy with a bad dye job! Yay!")

    I wonder if this is maybe her...settling down? If that's the right word. Local guy, she's not announcing it herself (sounds like hte newsies got it from the court/city records.) I hope it goes well for them.

    I've seen some 39 year olds look worse.

    I'm 39 too. If I'd stayed in skating as a kid (and actually got good enough), we would have been contemporaries in competition.

    Actually, I think this is only her second marriage. I can't seem to recall her marrying anyone after her divorce from Jeff Gillooly back in the early 1990's (there was a boyfried or two -- including the one she threw a hubcab at).

    I hope this marriage turns out a lot better than her first (of course, that's a pretty low standard). Hope she has gained insight on what led her to make rather self-destructive choices and is finally able to find some stability and happiness in her life.

    I wish Tonya a happy (and less public) future.
    I hope that she has grown as a result of the things that have happened to her, previously.

    IIRC, from either "Inside Edge" or "Edge of Glory", she either got married or was engaged briefly after Gillooly, but ended up separating and filing a restraining order.

    The article says the melee happened at the 1993 national championships but it was 1994! Anyways, good luck to Tonya, maybe this time it will work out for her! I wish she could have kept skating somehow though.

    That's so trippy.

    But you're probably lucky you didn't. It may have been your knee instead of Nancy's we talk about.

    That was taking from an interview she did on Oprah..

    They had just showed a tape of her at a ice rink where she broke down in tears talking about the death of her father just minutes after she was invited on her show a few days before..

    IIRC, Linda Lewis is a longtime friend of Tonya's (I think Tonya even called her an "adopted mother") who is one of the only people who has stuck by Tonya through her ups and downs. I think she used to run Tonya's fan club, maybe still does. Guess she was an avialable and willing "agent."

    Yes, she did. Susan Orlean wrote a very popular story about them during Tonyamania:

    http://www.susanorlean.com/articles/figures_in_a_mall.html

    And Orlean tells the story about how, a few weeks after the story ran, she received an anonymous package in the mail, which had no letter or note in it but did have several sets of false fingernails :lol:

    Some people actually like Tonya and appreciate her skating for what it was.

    Well, I never met Tonya so I have no idea whether I would like her. I expect not. But I liked her skating quite a lot.

    There's a whole thread about her skating currently active in this forum.

    She was married to Jeff, then some other guy, because I remember seeing footage of her "trying to hide" from the media on her way to the reception, so I'm pretty sure this is #3. Third times the charm, they say. She's had a tough life, so I think I'm going to side with the "wish her well" crowd. Maybe she deserves a little happiness.
