Tonya Harding: "I Was Scared" After 1994 Attack on Nancy Kerrigan

"I did, however, overhear them talking about stuff where, 'Well, maybe we should take somebody out to make sure she gets on the team.' I go, 'What the hell are you talking about?' " Harding confessed in Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story.

"I respect you for trying to ask these questions, however, I am really here just to talk about the future and what it means", Harding told Morgan. Harding also admitted that the attack made her fearful for her own safety and that of her fellow figure skaters.

Sandy says she worked three jobs to pay for little Harding's training and sewed her costumes by hand. "She's a pariah in our sport and she shouldn't be forgiven for basically, possibly having the opportunity of ruining somebody's life". "It was Nancy Kerrigan who had her Olympic dream shattered". "You did know what was happening?"

She countered, "People don't seem to understand there was a lot I was going through", possibly referring to the physical abuse she said she suffered from then-husband Jeff Gillooly.

Before ending the interview, Morgan asked Harding if she knew the attack was going to happen all those years ago. "No", she said. "I did not know anything prior".

After taking a moment to respond, Harding then threatened to end the interview.

"You didn't have any knowledge at all, it was a pure coincidence?"

"No, I did not", she snapped before ending the interview. The focus of the Golden Globe-nominated "I, Tonya", the disgraced former figure skater was in attendance for Sunday's award show.

During Allison Janney's acceptance speech for her role in I, Tonya, a biopic about ice skater Tonya Harding, the actress mentioned that the real athlete was among the Hollywood A-list in the Beverly Hilton.
