I watched a recent interview with Tonya Harding a month or so ago. She came across as entitled, bitter, and generally a very unlikeable person.

She blames her mother for all that...

Her mother in the movie was very good, she won best supporting actress.

Yes, in the interview she embraced every opportunity to trash her, and proudly said her son has never met his grandmother and never will. Who knows if she beat Tonya or not, I guess we'll never know, but Tonya did admit that her mother worked hard to pay for skating lessons for her, and hand sewed her costumes because they couldn't afford to buy them.

Curious - who played her mother in the movie?

Sounds like she's the same as she was 25 years ago.

Maybe even worse - it was just her back then, but now she has an impressionable little 7-year old son who will someday see this recent interview online.

Tyler is lucky to have a grandma like you instead.

Thanks, GG. Tyler probably didn't feel so lucky a few days ago when he had an attitude and said something disrespectful to me. I took away the TV remote, locked his toy room door, and gave him extra chores for 3 days.

She finds someone on facebook/the internet with the same name and takes him instead, novel idea, I liked it. You can't change the tickets but you can change the guy.
So I looked up my husband's name and there is no one by that same name, so ...oh well.


Watched this movie tonight. I love chick flicks and enjoyed it but it was a little too quirky for me.
