The 1994 attack of Nancy Kerrigan and the subsequent connection to her competitor Tonya Harding remain one of the most dramatic pop culture moments of all time, and now it’s an award-winning film.
To follow up on the success of I, Tonya, ABC’s new Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story special attempted to get behind the real Harding with all-new interviews.
Though Harding, who recently attended the Golden Globes, maintains she never told her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and his friend, Stephen Eckhardt, to attack Kerrigan or any of her other competitors, she spoke out about what she knew before the attack during this special.
“I knew that something was up,” Harding said.
And when interviewer Amy Robach asked if she ordered the attack, Harding replied, “No. I did, however, overhear them talking about stuff. ‘Well, maybe we should take somebody out so we can make sure [Harding] gets on the team.’ And I remember telling them, I go, ‘What the hell are you talking about? I can skate.’”
She said the conversation took place one or two months before the actual attack, and “It popped into my head two, three days after we got back.”
Harding went on to open up about her ex-husband’s behavior in the days following the attack, saying, “He started acting funny and I remember asking him, ‘What is going on? Do you remember something that you’ve not said?’”
Gillooly and Eckhardt served 18-month prison sentences for their involvement in the incident.
When told about Harding’s newest admission, reporter Connie Chung, who previously interviewed Harding and covered the 1994 Olympics, replied, “Unbelievable. I can’t believe that she said that.”
Though she side-stepped questions about apologizing to Kerrigan, Harding did admit to finding it hard to witness the aftermath of her competitor’s attack.
“It makes you cringe, hearing it, because you know how much that it had to have hurt,” she said.
Kerrigan recently broke her silence about Harding’s recent return to the spotlight. See what she said in the video below.
