'I, Tonya' presents a sympathetic - and scathingly amusing - portrait of Tonya Harding

But I, Tonya is resolute in one thing: its conviction that Harding knew nothing of the Kerrigan assault before it happened.

"Why Does "I, Tonya" Want Us to Think Domestic Abuse is Hilarious?"

USA figure skaters Tonya Harding (L) and Nancy Kerrigan avoid each other during a training session in Hamar, Norway, during the Winter Olympics. In the film, Harding alleges that her mother once threw a steak knife at her that hit her forearm.

"I, Tonya": Margot Robbie stars as Olympic ice skater Tonya Harding as she goes from talented competitor to being implicated in one of the most unusual scandals in the history of sports.

Tonya Harding has been lapping up all the favorable attention generated by this film, but a few interviewers have called her out on the topic of who the real victim is. She told the Globe this week that hasn't seen it.

Mob Angry Over Girl's Killing Attacks Pakistani Police Station
According to DawnNews , the post-mortem report of the child confirmed suspicions that she was raped before being murdered. In all the cases, the victims' bodies were thrown into buildings under construction near their residences.

The matchup was billed as Tonya "TNT" Harding vs. Paula "The Arkansas Pounder" Jones.

Despite what she went through in the years following the attack, Harding said her faith has allowed her to persevere.

Morgan ended up having the last word when he abruptly concluded the interview with, "Ok we'll leave it there".

January at the arthouse is when the platformed releases that opened in NY and Los Angeles in December (to qualify for the Academy Awards) start trickling down to the regional markets, like Salt Lake City.

Did she want to comment on the movie? At left is Kristi Yamaguchi, with third place Nancy Kerrigan at right. Tonight, don't miss the astonishing interview AND jaw-dropping television event - "Truth & Lies: The Tonya Harding Story", tonight at 9 on ABC7.

All signs point to Matt Patricia becoming next Giants head coach
The Giants will hold their sixth and final interview with former Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville on Wednesday. If Patricia does go to the Giants , watch out for Texans assistant and former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel in Detroit.

But Harding, as she demonstrated so often when it came down to crunch time in her competitions, hasn't done the work. The incident occurred just weeks before she won a silver medal at the Lillehammer Olympics.

You may have used at least one of these while watching the 1994 Winter Olympics, which you may only remember now as Nancy Kerrigan vs. Tonya Harding. Simon Bruty, Getty Images Jeff Gillooy, ex-husband of figure skater Tonya Harding, is escorted out of the Federal Bureau of Investigation office after surrendering shortly after a warrant for his arrest was issued. An interview she's only giving because Harding is involved in a movie that presents her mother as a villain.

Janney generates uproarious slapstick in scenes of this gargoyle walloping young Tonya with a hairbrush or kicking her and her chair over at the dinner table for being sassy.

Kerrigan was also asked to share her opinion on Harding's return to the spotlight thanks to the film, which portrays Harding somewhat as a victim of her surroundings, detailing her reportedly abusive relationships with her mother and her own husband, Jeff Gillooly.

Another ice-skating icon unimpressed with the movie is former Olympian Johnny Weir, who took to Twitter this week to express his disgust at what he perceived as glorification of Harding and a mockery of Kerrigan's suffering.

Meltdown and Spectre: Microsoft's bug fix reportedly crocking AMD PCs
Microsoft said that it is still testing the speed impacts of updating systems, and it doesn't have concrete numbers yet. Myerson noted that Microsoft is now performing its own benchmark studies and plans to publish the results when done.

Authorities quickly unraveled the plot and arrested Gillooly, Eckhardt and Stant, who all served time for their roles. We were never trailer trash.
