"I did, however, overhear them talking about stuff where, 'Well, maybe we should take somebody out to make sure she gets on the team.' I go, 'What the hell are you talking about?' " Harding confessed in Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story.

Weir, a former Quarryville resident speaking to TMZ, said that he would not forgive Harding for her part in injuring Nancy Kerrigan in 1994. "My movie now to me, is going to help so many people to realize that it is OK to ask for help".

"I respect you for trying to ask these questions". The former Olympic figure skater - famously accused of facilitating a brutal assault on rival skater (and Stoneham native) Nancy Kerrigan ahead of their Olympic competition - cheered Janney on as she accepted the trophy.

Morgan ruthlessly probed Harding about whether she knew that her ex-husband hired a hitman to club Kerrigan in the knee - and the ice skater, coming off a string of glossy movie chats, wasn't having the hard interview. Her goal, she says, was to help make her daughter's Olympic dreams come true.

Days later, officials linked the incident to Harding and her live-in ex-husband.

"I knew something was up", Tonya said of the beating that almost ended Nancy's career.

"You're going to end the interview because I think Nancy Kerrigan was the victim here not you?" "People need to be able to understand that we need to stand united and that abuse should not be happening anymore".

"I felt so sorry for her that she had to actually play me, you know?"

"You didn't have any knowledge at all, it was pure coincidence?" he pressed.

"No, I did not", she responded before the interview ended for good.
