Truth & Lies: The Tonya Harding Story

Golden discusses her daughter Tonya Harding on ABC News Truth and Lies The Tonya Harding Story

Golden might not like the way she appears on film, but Harding liked the portrayal, Janney said.

"Unbelievable", said former ABC journalist Connie Chung who had interviewed Harding following the 1994 assault.

During an interview this week with Piers Morgan on "Good Morning Britain", Harding seemed on the verge of ending the segment after Morgan said the real victim was Kerrigan, not Harding.

Movie award season has already been good to the movie "I, Tonya", a reportedly sympathetic account of figure skater Tonya Harding's life.

These supporting performances are so authentically nonsensical and hilarious that "I, Tonya" sports one of the year's best ensembles delivering some of the best dumb-dialogue you'll hear.

Presented in faux documentary style, the characters in "I, Tonya" speak to the camera during the interview segments and sometimes break the fourth wall to address the audience when the "dramatization" takes too much artistic license (in one intense scene, a shotgun-wielding Harding stops to clarify that she "never did" what the film is about to show her doing).

In other words, the 90s are back baby! "I don't want her anywhere near my son", said Harding. She is the author of "Fire on Ice: The Exclusive Inside Story of Tonya Harding", published by Random House in 1994. "But it's my faith in myself and in my father that comes back to me and makes me get back up off my butt and be something worth being proud of", she said. As for Harding's relationship with her mother today?

Winter storm watch issued for OH from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning
The strongest winds will be found from west central to south central Minnesota where winds could gust to 40 miles per hour . Temperatures will plummet into the single digits and teens late tonight which may cause a flash freeze on area roadways.

Like a Christopher Guest mockumentary, "I, Tonya" lets plenty of people weigh in - from her coaches to detractors.

Harding has long denied knowledge of the incident, but said in the lead-up to the film that she had an inkling something was being plotted.

Golden admitted to using a hairbrush to "spank" Harding at a competition, but denied she was habitually abusive toward Harding. She did not participate in the 2014 ESPN 30 for 30: The Price of Gold special about the attack. At left is Kristi Yamaguchi, with third place Nancy Kerrigan at right. "I think she's having a great moment".

All the newfound attention is pushing Harding to sharpen her skills on the ice. Harding, meanwhile, pleaded guilty to hindering the prosecution-a felony-and was sentenced to three years' probation, 500 hours of community service and a $160,000 fine. No actress tries harder to make herself detestable, even down to her appearance, framing her weathered wrinkles in over-sized plastic glasses and a thick pageboy clump of mud-brown hair.

So she watched it a few times, and the shock wore off, and there from the comfort of her living room, sitting beside the only romantic partner she has ever felt loved by and safe with, she watched what had happened in her life and realized that she never really stood a chance.

Former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding says she was scared for her own safety after the infamous 1994 baton attack on her fellow Olympic figure skater and longtime competitor Nancy Kerrigan.
