*Nancy Kerrigan hasn't seen I, Tonya, and has very little to say about it.

The Olympic figure skater tells the Boston Globe she's been too "busy" to see the critically acclaimed bio-pic starring Margot Robbie or watch Tonya Harding celebrated at last week's Golden Globes. "I was at the national [figure skating] championships this week so I didn’t watch the Golden Globes. I haven’t seen the movie. I’m just busy living my life."

The film presents Harding as a victim -- even though Kerrigan was the one clubbed in the knee before the 1994 Winter Olympics. The movie blames the attack entirely on Harding's then-husband Jeff Gillooly.  

Asked if she was bothered by the film’s portrayal of Harding, Kerrigan said, “I don’t know. At this point, it’s so much easier and better to just be...it’s not really part of my life. As you say, I was the victim. Like, that’s my role in this whole thing. That’s it."

Kerrigan isn't the only one who has issues with the veracity of the film. Harding's own mother, LaVona "Sandy" Golden, says she never abused her daughter and the scene in which she throws a steak knife at the figure skater never happened. In an interview with ABC News, Golden says, “Why would I throw a steak knife at anybody? [Tonya's] lied so much she doesn’t know what isn’t a lie anymore.”

Talk About It:

  • So basically everyone has called Tonya a liar.
  • Golden says she's never met her grandson, and Harding says she never will.
  • You can bet Nancy Kerrigan will have more to say about I, Tonya once she watches it.

Bill Cosby Is Ready For Retrial - 

Bill Cosby says he's ready for his retrial in April.

He told reporters at a restaurant in Philadelphia "we're ready." In June, the 80-year-old comedian went to trial over charges he drugged and molested a former Temple University employee in 2004 inside his suburban Philadelphia home. The judge declared a mistrial after the jury deadlocked. Cosby's trial was delayed until the spring so his new legal team could get up to speed.

He has insisted the sexual encounter was consensual. "The Philadelphia Inquirer" reports some members of the media were tipped off about the dinner and were invited to document the event. It was, by most accounts an “odd gathering” and at one point the comedian made a bad choice of telling a female reporter “Please don’t put me on MeToo,” after they shook hands.
