"'I, Tonya" is now "goodbye, Tonya, '" he wrote.
With her head against my chest, I leaned down and hugged her. "I, Tonya" suggests that, in some ways, it's Tonya who is the victim.
With the release of the Golden Globe-nominated I, Tonya, former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding has been back in the headlines, giving in-depth interviews about her life and the infamous 1994 attack on fellow U.S. figure skater Nancy Kerrigan.
Former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding almost cut short after host Piers Morgan told her she was playing the victim in a situation in which the real victim was rival Nancy Kerrigan.
In fact, she allegedly even wants reporters to sign a document before interviewing her stating they won't ask about it. On Thursday, Michael Rosenberg, Harding's longtime publicist and agent, quit his post as Harding's rep.
You may have decided that Harding was guilty of many things a long time ago, but "I, Tonya" does a lovely job of showing that her innocence was lost long before those Albertville Olympics. She did admit, though, she heard Gillooly and Eckhardt talking about "taking somebody out" to increase Harding's chances of making the 1994 U.S. Olympic team.
"It was really fun", she said of her time at the championships in San Jose, California. So after doing a little research and watching this film I'm still pretty torn on whether Tonya had any knowledge of the assault on Nancy Kerrigan.

Business Insider asked Rogers before the movie opened in December if he was motivated at all to get to the bottom of what Harding knew before writing the script.
"I have two Olympics medals", Kerrigan said.
"Where were our think pieces then?", Akner wrote, before quoting Harding: "You all disrespected me and it hurt". Craig Strong, AFP/Getty Images Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding on the ice together during training at Lillehammer, Norway for the 1994 Winter Olympics.
"You weren't letting me finish", she snapped. Like, that's my role in this whole thing.
"Why would I throw a steak knife at anybody?"
It comes as Harding's mother, Lavona Golden, told ABC News that her daughter was a serial liar and that she never threw a knife at her. "Absolutely, positively you [have] got to show them right from wrong". I haven't seen the movie. "I could care less about that movie than the dirt outside". Golden said, also denying that claim.Golden went on to describe her daughter's apparent history of lying. "I, Tonya" never sits still quite long enough to give us a totally satisfying answer, but it does cut through the corny late night show jokes and 24 hour news cycle demonization just deep enough to make us question our own culpability in Tonya Harding's now-faded notoriety.
In an extreme example of this psychological torture, a very young Tonya is forced to urinate on the ice after her mother won't let her take a bathroom break. These testimonials are one of the more novel inventions of "I, Tonya", which reenact real interviews recorded for the film.
