Does anyone know when she's due?
Didn't know she was expecting lol!
Well, this report is from last July, so she's probably due soon: http://blogs.babycenter.com/celebrities/report-tonya-harding-pregnant-attempting-to-quit-smoking/
The article on the blog said - "Tonya, 39 , is now working to stop drinking and to kick a chain-smoking habit in hopes of delivering a healthy baby.”
Why would she have to work at doing the right thing for her unborn child? Just stop drinking and smoking.
Sometimes, for people addicted to cigarettes it is a lot easier said than done. I don't ever remember reading that Tonya was a chronic drinker but because tests show no amount of alcohol is considered safe, even the odd glass of wine/ beer might be of concern to some women.
I was always more at her smoking with asthma... I will never understand that though...
My mom smoked and drank all through her pregnancy and look at me: almost perfect!
Right NOW!!!!....She found out late last spring and desided to keep it secret because she did NOT want the media to bug her and her new husband...
( I knew about it since last summer and was asked not to say anything about it intil her fan club was told it was okay to post it in their news letter..It was right before Christmas..)
She has a fan club, still?...well....I guess women marry prisoners too...shouldn't be too surprised.
I thought this was about a sequel to "Rosemary's Baby"....
I don't think that the poor kid is in any hurry to come out.
You know, regardless of how we feel about Tonya, I think that she deserves some happiness. I hope she and the baby are fine.
And no, I am not a tonya fan. Just someone who thinks that babies are special.
you meanies I agree with numbers123.. I wish her all the very best and hope she can move on with her life and enjoy her impending motherhood..
I wish her all the best too, and that her baby is healthy and happy. I was never an uber but I liked her, and I still admire her skating skills.
any pics or information about her husband?
Some online sites claim the National Enquirer has a story on one of it's inside pages. Haven't seen it myself.
I wish her well. It's never too late to get your sht together.
It's been what 17 years? Tonya didn't commit capital murder. I think she should have been forgiven long ago, and people need to move on imo.
It's not just the incident that people talk about when they say they hope Tonya has her stuff together. It's all the run-ins with the law and tabloid-worthy fodder Tonya has consistently found herself in throughout the years. Anyway, even though Nancy came out ok in the end, I don't think it does much service to minimize the severity of her attack. I find that a lot of posters (or fans) tend to do that in order to say its time to forgive Tonya (or to snark at Kerrigan).
That said, I hope the baby brings her much happiness and peace.
Interesting how she timed her baby to be born right around Nationals.
She has a regular gig on the "Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest _________" (drivers, daredevils, criminals, partiers, brawlers, inventions, erc.) on TruTV, and on it, she seems like she's having fun with it and is able to snark or banter with the other people on the show. She also seems like she's much happier with herself and her life. Lord knows, it anyone needed to seemingly get one's shit together, it was TH, and hopefully she's on the right track for that to happen.
Exactly. I walk by a church most days, which happens to hold AA meetings. I sternly looked at the people hanging around after their meeting, smoking up a storm. "Just say NO!!!", I helpfully exclaimed. Just stop drinking! "It's an illness", they said. I offered them a solution...it's so simple, just stop! But they just looked at me as if I was a jerk or something!
Well, not quite, but I did hear that Rosemary might end up helping with the babysitting.
"You must spread some reputation around before giving it to PeterG again".
You're horrible, you ahh!!
I wonder what she charges.
People will always snark about it for years to come; it's become part of pop culture. It's not realistic to expect otherwise. I hope she's happy too, but still...it's fun.
I would have "looked" at you the same way. You have no idea!
A blissfully lovely dose of sarcasm to begin my day. Thank you PeterG!
True!! To dismiss it makes the crime seem ok.
Um, is she actually pregnant? Back in an old FSU thread there was a statement from her that she couldn't confirm she was pregnant, she "hoped" she was. Considering you can find nothing online about it aside from the original gossip speculation, I'm not sure there really is a baby on the way.
What you said was completely unrealistic if you had any knowledge about addiction, you would know that already though. How about telling the person who is obese to just stop eating and their diabetes will 'go away'.
I think PeterG was joking...
I certainly thought so.
Well! I guess Oldsk8ter and I are on our own! (Walking off in a billowy huff...!!!)
Here is a couple of photos of Tonya and her husband Joe....
Just like Eve Arden .
sorry, anyone who has experienced alcoholism in their family - this is not funny. I can't tell you how many times someone told my brother that. And even sober for 30+ years now, the amount of stress that is undergoing now, I fear that he may fall back. Not funny at all.
I'm not sure why people are directing their anger at PeterG's post. The way I read it was Peter mocking the poster who insisted that Tonya "just stop drinking" not that Peter was mocking people with a drinking problem or was posting a serious belief. I guess if you're that close to a situation it might be hard to take any humor from it, but I think you're directing being offended at the wrong person. YMMV
Seriously. I understand the anger, but it's really directed at the wrong person. The post that PeterG was mocking was much more offensive to those who are sensitive to the effects of alcohol and substance abuse.
BTW PeterG, I totally got the sarcasm and thought it was hilarious.
Well, it wasn't directed at your brother. Your issues with your brother are YOUR issues. I don't mean to be cold, but you are reading too much into this. It wouldn't be PeterG's fault if your brother fell off of the wagon. I have alcoholism in my family too, and you know what? Some things are funny. Sometimes you have to laugh. I know people whose loved ones have cancer and they laugh at stuff.
I think you are reading too much in what I said. I said that for people in the alcohol addiction it is not as easy as "quit drinking" and that it is a life long problem. For people to be so whatever about it...
I sometimes find Peter's posts funny and sometimes not. But then the same is true for all posters on this board and others.
I simply entered this thread to wish Tonya and baby well.
