    I'm all for Amy Adams as Tonya- she has proven her acting/ accent chops in American Hustle. However, I've vowed to never watch anything starring that pimp-pig Leann Rimes, even if she IS a dead ringer for Nancy Kerrigan as a brunette.

    How could anyone EVER think Tonya was innocent of the attack on NK? Surf for "Tonya Harding, body language" to see how much proof there is against her story in the NK affair.
    Don't worry, she's not an actress. We don't even know if she is a reality star yet.

    I've been trying to pick somebody for Jeff Gillooly, so far I've got Dax Shepard. Anybody have other suggestions?

    Nancy Kerrigan Speaks Out About Tonya Harding 20 Years After Infamous Scandal

    It was the whack heard around the world and Nancy Kerrigan has been largely silent about it – until now.

    The now-retired Olympic medal-winning figure skater agreed to participate in the NBC documentary Nancy & Tonya, which debuts Sunday just before the Winter Olympics closing ceremony. Its airing marks the 20th anniversary of the 1994 Winter Olympics figure skating competition and highlights the scandal that gripped the nation.

    Both Kerrigan and Tonya Harding – who has been more vocal over the years about the infamous incident – sit down for the documentary and offer differing viewpoints on what happened after Kerrigan was struck in the knee just prior to the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit in January 1994.

    "It's sad, the bizarre craziness that all transpired," Kerrigan says in the documentary, per the New York Post. "It's too bad, because she's talented."

    The documentary chronicles their rise in the figure skating world – Kerrigan from a supportive middle-class home in suburban Massachusetts and Harding from a hardscrabble blue-collar background in Oregon – and relives the memorable moment when Kerrigan wailed "Why me?" after getting hit, a moment she says "just changed everything."

    Although Harding, now 43, was almost immediately implicated in the attack, Kerrigan, now 44, says she initially gave her fellow skater the benefit of the doubt.

    "I had people asking me, 'Do you think she had anything to do with it?' And I, my reaction to that was, 'That's ridiculous.' To me, this had to have been some random act," she says.

    However, she later hints that her thinking changed.

    "I can remember saying to the FBI, 'Well, maybe Tonya really didn't know, maybe they did [the attack] for her," she says, referring to Harding's then-husband Jeff Gillooly, bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt and Shane Stant, who delivered the blow. "And they said, 'Nancy, we can't prove it, but we think she was the mastermind of the whole thing.' "

    Meanwhile, Harding maintains her innocence. "I have apologized so many times, she is not worthy of my time anymore," Harding tells NBC's Mary Carillo, according to the Post. "I proved my innocence, yet people still think I was involved."

    Nancy & Tonya airs Sunday (7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT) on NBC.

    PVR is set!

    The best is when you comment that you wish that Tonya would have been the comeback kid and won gold that year just for the Cinderella story it'd have been. And you're only partially lying.

    I don't know if anyone else is watching this, but it's already bringing the awesomeness in the first 10 minutes with Tonya singing karaoke in a hole-in-the-wall bar.

    I'm not watching but wanted to get a feel for how it was going. Went to Twitter and looked at top tweets. Soooo...I take it Tonya is making a fool of herself?

    ^ Pretty much, bitter jellus fattie.

    And I don't even LIKE Kerrigan, but she says: "It's sad, the bizarre craziness that all transpired, It's too bad, because she's talented."

    Tonya says: "I have apologized so many times, SHE is not worthy of my time anymore."

    I love how Tonya hangs out in a biker bar and is absolutely delusional, progressing to just full of rage while Nancy is just as damn unlikeable as ever (to give her credit though, she seems much more approachable in the after-documentary interview) and then in the 3rd corner, we have a sobbing Oksana (didn't she drunkenly crash a car and maybe/maybe not dabble in porn?)

    I'm no Kerrigan fan, but she came across as gracious, normal, and sane, whereas Tonya didn't. Whatever obnoxiousness Nancy lost in the last 20 years, Tonya gained.

    I'm watching Nancy talk to Pink-Eye, and I'm not sure if that's what everyone else is watching. What I can say about what I'm seeing, is that Nancy looks hopped up and like she has a palsy.

    I didn't see anything that had Tonya in it (just got home from work). All I've seen Tonya in for years is TruTV commentaries on guys getting hit in the nuts with random objects.

    I remember the Oksana DUI, not the porn, but who knows, and I'm not gonna google it.

    Whether Nancy is faking it for the cameras or not, she at least knows how to play it. Tonya still doesn't have a clue.

    Whether you like Nancy or not, she has stayed out of the fray and gone on with her life. Tonya never could do that. Too desperate, too guilty, too caught up in all the crap. It's a shame she couldn't have just found a quiet life somewhere.

    Tonya seems like the poster child for what happens when you have an abusive, alcoholic parent who treats you like shit - but that said, it's still not an excuse. The crazy lying, double-backing and just overall bad life choices goes beyond how horribly her mother treated her and is just all on her. She has a toddler now, hopefully that gives her some sort of peace. Props to Nancy for moving on with life - I did agree with her sarcastic comment about probably having to revisit this again on the 40th anniversary.

    Oh and I totally googled Oksana. She did some topless shots only as far as I can tell...........I refuse to look further.
