In an upcoming special called Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story on ABC, the former Olympic figure skater tells her side of the story (again).

Hollywood can forgive Tonya Harding if they want. but Johnny Weir says that's NEVER gonna happen with him and the rest of the figure skating community.

Morgan, however, was just getting started and refused to subscribe to the narrative that Harding was the true victim, as the film, which delves heavily into her abusive relationships with her mother and ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, contends.

But others were prepared to defend Harding, pointing out she did not carry out the attack on Kerrigan and noting she too had suffered at the hands of abusive men. "You did know what was happening".

After telling Morgan that he wasn't letting her finish, Harding stuck around for a few more questions about the incident she'd clearly prefer to move on from.

Piers Morgan managed to offend a Good Morning Britain guest so much the interview was cut short this morning. Some viewers, however, found themselves wondering how one person in particular might feel if she was watching the proceedings go down: former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. "It took me so long to be able to ask somebody to help me".

Harding and Kerrigan at a training session in Hamar, Norway, during the Winter Olympics in February 1994. She also said she had "no knowledge prior". "When I found out that the truth was finally going to come out", the now 47-year-old recalled of the moment her involvement was made public.

Allison Janney, who plays Harding's mother in the film, saluted her after winning Best Supporting Actress.

It's safe to say up-and-coming actor Timothée Chalamet was having a great time at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.
