    Tonya is a regular on Tru-TV's "World's Dumbest." They show footage of dumb criminals, dumb drivers, dumb drunks, etc. while Tonya and a dozen or so other celebs (most of whom are either comedians or ex-child stars) make snarky comments. She would probably need an agent to do the contract for that show. I don't think she looks bad-- comparing her to my high school classmates' Facebook profile pics, I'd say Tonya is very normal looking for her age.

    I wish her the best.

    Apparently Tonya is still relavent, more so than some other skaters. If you do a Google news search on Tonya, this is what you get. ( Now remember, this not a web search, it's a news search. So these are only RECENT news articles. )

    Where if you do Michelle Kwan ..........

    ........... or Caroline Zhang

    ............. or Rachael Flatt

    Tonya just got married and it's off-season for skating, so of course there are more news stories about Tonya. If you'd done the same search during Nationals, you'd have seen more stories about Sasha, and if you'd have done the search during the Olympics, you'd have seen more stories about Rachel.

    You lose. My son was not only carded, the Rite Aid store manager as well as the checkout clerk refused to sell him beer. He was 40 at the time.

    Well I personally wish her some happiness...long overdue IMHO. Some people need to get over what happened almost 20 years ago.

    Here's the thing, though. Later that year, Tonya had a falling out with the fan club president, Elaine Stamm. Apparently they were closing the fan club and Stamm wanted to donate the money that was left over to a charity, but Tonya wanted it for herself. Anyway, they stopped speaking after that. :(

    Concerning Tonya's marriage, I wish her the best in life, but if she hasn't sorted out her personal problems, I have a hard time believing that this relationship will fare any better than previous ones.

    I do think it's important to accept Tonya as she is and not hate her for her past, because that kind of lingering resentment helps nobody. At the same time, if she lied about her knowledge of the attack, then she's obviously still concealing it, and people have a right to take exception to that. I think it's helpful to distinguish between Tonya's objectionable behavior and Tonya as a human being.

    Well deserve peace and happiness no matter the tragic events that occurred in the past. I hope this marriage brings Tonya all that she needs in order to be at peace with her self.

    Well, Leaver and Boitano have always been pretty close, so there's a good chance of that. ;)

    It would be wonderful if Tonya found some peace and happiness while embarking on an entirely new chapter of life (i.e. no more bad reality TV and no more rehashing the Tonya incident to earn a few$$).

    Actually she herself has stated she wants to get over it so really, no need for me to tell her what she is already trying to do. :lol: The media just loves to keep throwing out what Tonya did to Nancy (or failed to do) incase anyone forgets...or for the younglings to know what she did and to ensure a new generation of haters for her.

    Yeah, but it's not as if Tonya spent her following years being a model citizen.

    However, I agree that Tonya deserves to have people leave her alone and allow her to find peace and happiness. Hopefully, she'll do just that and this new marriage won't end with a hubcap.

    Everything she has done is no different than many other citizens (unfortunately), but because of the Nancy situation it is magnified/ amplified.

    Every article about her brings up what happened with Nancy. I have yet to read an article where they just discuss what she has done...aka boxing, remarrying/ divorcing, call to the police etc etc...

    Well, that's the nature of celebrity unfortunately.

    They should do a "Where Are They Now?" feature on all of Tonya's exes. ;) Apparently the last time around she married an actor who was 13 years older. How long did the marriage last, you ask? 3 months and 1 week. :eek:

    Reminds me of one time when Sheena Easton joked that she's had pairs of shoes that lasted longer than her marriages. :D
