Even though Tonya Harding was sitting mere feet from apparently everyone’s dream 2020 presidential candidate at the Golden Globes Sunday night, some people thought it was a bit twisted that Nancy Kerrigan was sitting at home while the woman who may or may not have been responsible for the “WHYYYYYYY?!?!” heard ’round the world got to mingle with the stars. People reports Britain shit stirrer Piers Morgan of Good Morning Britain wondered the same thing and wasn’t afraid to remind everyone who really should be playing the victim card between Tonya and Nancy.
Piers kept trying to get Tonya to say whether she was involved in the 1994 pipe attack on Nancy. Tonya’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly said she knew all along of the conspiracy to take down Nancy. Tonya maintained in her 2008 autobiography that she wanted to tell authorities but didn’t because Jeff threatened her life. She echoed the sentiment in so many words on Good Morning Britain by saying I, Tonya was her platform to show people it’s okay to seek help, something it took her so long to do. Piers was having none of it:
“Maybe it suits you to play the victim. But I think the victim in all this wasn’t you. It was Nancy Kerrigan who had her Olympic dream shattered.”
Say wha?! This was a far departure from wearing black and noshing on the Beverly Hilton’s rubber chicken at the Golden Globes! How dare you speak to sequined-and-chiffon skating/celebrity boxing royalty like that, Piers!!! Tonya didn’t like that and tried to get out of the interview with a polite “thank you” and “good night.” They kind of went back and forth before Tonya made it more about finding your voice in cases of domestic abuse, and Piers simply wanted to know if Tonya was in on the plan to take down Nancy. She denied it, and the interview was over.
But what I want to know is when is the ultimate victim in this whole mess, Mickey Mouse, going to get a chance to tell his side of the story?
