Tonya Harding is back in the news because of the new film about her life, I, Tonya, and the former Olympic figure skater has revealed in a new ABC interview airing next week that maybe she did know something ahead of time after all about the infamous 1994 attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan that was arranged by her then-husband. In an trailer released for the special, Harding says, "I knew that something was up," revealing that she overheard the plotters talking about how, quote, "maybe we should take somebody out so we can make sure she gets on the team." Harding continues, "I go, 'What the hell are you talking about?'" Harding wasn't charged in the attack, in which Kerrigan was hit in the knee with a baton when she walked off the ice after a practice, but she pled guilty to conspiring to hinder the prosecution of those responsible, and was punished with a fine, probation and community service. Her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and the three other men involved in the plot, including the man who bashed Kerrigan's knee, all served jail time. Gillooly has claimed that Harding knew about the attack.
