Banana Don’s Slice Of Americana – Whatever Happened To Tonya Harding?
January 6th (Monday) was the 20th anniversary of the Nancy Kerrigan - Tonya Harding "incident" at Cobo Hall in Detroit. This morning we were talking about it and wondered whatever happened to Nancy and Tonya? Well, Nancy is about to be the figure skating analyst for NBC at the 2014 Winter Olympics. She's married and she's a mom and she's been very successful in the last 20 years, even though she's had her share of family drama.
Tonya is a wife and mom and a part time woodworker with her husband in rural Oregon. Life has been more of a struggle for her since 1994, but I think we all could've predicted that.
Here's a story USA Today did the other day about them.
Both were also interviewed for an NBC documentary that will air sometime during the Winter Olympics. A "30 For 30" documentary about both called "The Price Of Gold", will air on ESPN on January 16th.
Trivia: The night they competed in the short program at the Olympics in 1994 is the 6th highest rated (percentage of households in America watching the same show) TV show in history.
