Sure, that's Tonya Harding on the Golden Globes

Sure, that's Tonya Harding on the Golden Globes

Meanwhile, Harding's publicist/agent has dumped the former figure skater for demanding journalists pay fines if they ask her about the attack on Kerrigan ahead of the 1994 Winter Olympics.

"I am sad as I write this", he added, "but at the same time I'm happy that I had such an adventure with the movie and with recreating a new positive image for her (Harding) in the public eye".

Michael A. Rosenberg went public with his former client's odd demand in a Facebook post on Thursday, writing: "I, Tonya is now "goodbye, Tonya". This is no more apparent than during a moment near the end of the film in which Tonya looks directly into the camera and effectively tells us we're as complicit in her professional downward spiral as her actual abusers.

Asked by The Boston Globe if she was bothered by Hollywood's portrayal of Harding, Kerrigan said "It's not really part of my life". "She's not somebody that I want to support even in a backhanded way by going to a theater and purchasing a ticket to see the film".

False Alarm Confirmed, No Missile Threat
Hawai'i residents were stunned this morning by what turned out to be a false alarm of an incoming missile launch. Hawaii EMA sent a correction notification at 1:45 ET, 38 minutes after sending out its initial message.

But the knife-throwing incident isn't the only thing Harding's said that her mother disagrees with. Steve Slocum, AP Tonya Harding's coach Diane Rawlinson speaks to reporters outside her home.

Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, hired the hit man who knee-capped Kerrigan in 1994 and Harding pleaded guilty to hindering the prosecution.

"I was about 10 feet from her", Harding told ABC News.

"It's not my fault", Harding screams to whomever will listen, and certainly this foul-mouthed redneck was not entirely at fault for all the mistakes she made. "It was a steak knife". Golden said. "She's lied so much she doesn't know what isn't a lie anymore".

Golden said it wasn't actually alcohol.
