Tonya Harding’s big “comeback” has only lasted a couple of months now and she’s already making headlines with her prickly attitude and “woe is me” demeanor. Some people, like Allison Janney, think she’s just swell. Others, like Johnny Weir, think she stinks. But love her or hate her, she’s always been consistent in her ability to stir the pot. However, it looks like Tonya may have stirred that pot a little too aggressively and has lost her longtime publicist Michael Rosenberg because of it.
With the success of I, Tonya, Tonya Harding has a rare opportunity to revamp her image and go from villain to underdog. While she may be making headway in Hollywood and with the American public, figure skating’s #1 glitter angel Johnny Weir says that Tonya will not to be getting any standing ovations from him. According to TMZ, Johnny hasn’t forgiven her for what happened to Nancy Kerrigan.
Even though Tonya Harding was sitting mere feet from apparently everyone’s dream 2020 presidential candidate at the Golden Globes Sunday night, some people thought it was a bit twisted that Nancy Kerrigan was sitting at home while the woman who may or may not have been responsible for the “WHYYYYYYY?!?!” heard ‘round the world got to mingle with the stars. People reports Britain shit stirrer Piers Morgan of Good Morning Britain wondered the same thing and wasn’t afraid to remind everyone who really should be playing the victim card between Tonya and Nancy.
Last night’s Golden Globes was (rightfully so) all about our celebrity women giving the creeps of Hollywood a big “EFF YOU” in a black dress. It was also about women standing in solidarity with each other. Speaking of women standing in solidarity with each other, everyone loves them some Tonya Harding. Sure, she miiiiight have been involved in trying to cripple her ice-skating opponent Nancy Kerrigan before the 1994 Winter Olympics. But that was decades ago! And it was totally her skeevy ex or something. I, Tonya was nominated for several Golden Globes last night and the film’s inspiration was there to bask in the adulation. Continue reading
“Ahahahahaha, I’m still laughing over this homely hag playing me in a movie. Hollywood is so weird!” – Tonya Harding in that picture.
About 23 years ago, Tonya Harding was down in out after she lost her figure skating career over her ex-husband and bodyguard hiring some goon to bust out her rival’s kneecap. But look at Tonya now! She’s happy and healthy-looking and standing next to a movie star at the big Hollywood premiere of a movie that would’ve never happened if she stopped her ex-husband and bodyguard from hiring some goon to bust out her rival’s kneecap. Tonya and the movie version of her, Margot Robbie, posed together at last night’s Hollywood premiere of I, Tonya at The Egyptian Theater. Tonya wore a dress from Cabela’s black label collection and Margot wore an off-brand Elvira Hancock from Scarface costume from Big Lots.
I, Tonya is getting a lot of Oscar talk, including some for Margot Robbie, which I don’t know why since Julie Brown gave the only Tonya Harding performance we need. But Allison Janney, who was there last night serving pure glah-moor in a gold-dipped caftan, is getting the most Oscar talk. As of now, it looks like the Best Supporting Actress Oscar race is down to her for playing Tonya’s abusive monster of a mom and Laurie Metcalf for Lady Bird. I hope that Allison picked up her caftan and ran off when Tonya whispered in her ear last night, “So, Al, I hear the Oscur is down to you and your rival Aunt Jackie. You know I know I guy….”
After months of getting just the sequin-and-chiffon tip of what kind of beautiful depiction or trainwreck attempt Margot Robie would do to the Tonya Harding empire, the official trailer for “I, Tonya” has dropped, and it is GLORIOUS Academy Award material. If you’re Allison Janney. Continue reading
