Tonya Harding to Nancy Kerrigan: “Me Too!”
Tonya Harding can’t seem to get any respect these days.
Ever since “the whack heard around the world” in 1994, no one seems to care anymore that Tonya was the first American woman to land a triple axel and that she can do so much more than hurl hubcaps at her love interests == the girl can box!
Even though no one asked for her opinion, Tonya spoke out about Nancy Kerrigan‘s father’s death and her brother’s arrest over the week-end (coincidentally during the 2010 US Figure Skating Championships in Spokane) via a rep to “The Insider”: “Tonya feels very sad for Nancy and her family and extends her deepest sympathy and condolences to them. Tonya’s beloved dad, Al Harding, passed away this past April, so she understands the grief Nancy and her family are feeling at this difficult time.”
Like all good publicity whores, the former skating champ knows that forever linking her name to Nancy is the only way to stay relevant in a “sport” that desperately needs her notoriety more than they care to admit. Either way, she’s ready to fight to preserve her position in the fame game.
