Tonya Harding admits that she knew of plan to attack Nancy Kerrigan

Though she eventually realized the movie was based on a true story, Robbie didn't let the real Harding influence her portrayal.

"I remember she dragged me into the bathroom and beat me with a hairbrush, literally", Harding said.

"I was at the national [figure skating] championships this week so I didn't watch the Golden Globes", Kerrigan added.

Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan is speaking about the movie, "I, Tonya", and being at the center of the 1994 controversy once again.

He added: "Obviously it was bad what happened to Nancy, but when you could take a step back and a look at the story of Tonya's life and how she got there and the brutality that she lived with with her mother and her husband, you start to have a different perspective on it, and it makes you question your own judgments".

In the special, which aired Thursday night, Harding confessed that she had an inkling of the plan between her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and his friend, Shawn Eckardt, to attack Kerrigan prior to the 1994 Olympics.

"Take a lie detector (expletive)", Harding said in response to her mother's denials.

In Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story, Harding claimed her mother was abusive when she was in high school.

"Enough apologizing", Harding said. I did, however, overhear them talking about stuff, where (Gillooly and his hired hitman said), "Well, maybe we should take somebody out so we can make sure she gets on the team". "You see that hard exterior that she's always had in life and in her interviews till this day, you get to understand more the armor that she has and that anger underneath because of the life she had". I have my life. "And I sincerely wish her the best".

While Harding was a rough-around-the-edges athlete in a sport in which most toed the line in the 1990s, she still was given opportunity after opportunity to represent the United States around the world. Like that's my role in this whole thing. "I'm just busy living my life".

Harding was the first American figure skater to successfully land a triple axel jump during a competition.

They both deny beating Harding.

Here's what you need to know about Tonya Harding. "I mean, I was there".

Olympic journalist Philip Hersh tweeted, when he shared Rosenberg's Facebook post, that Harding has "a long history of biting the hands that fed her" and had "backed into a corner the agent who made [I, Tonya] happen".

"I didn't abuse any of my children", Golden added. "I don't care how it portrays me. I could care less about that movie than the dirt outside".
