Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan: Where Are They Now? All About the Former Skaters Ahead of Margot Robbie's I, Tonya
It was the cry heard ’round the world.

At the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in 1994 – just one month before the Winter Olympics – champion American skater Nancy Kerrigan was brutally clubbed in the knee, leaving her unable to compete.

It was later revealed that the ex-husband and bodyguard of fellow American skater Tonya Harding worked together to hire someone to attack rival skater Kerrigan. Though Harding long disputed her involvement, she was eventually convicted of hindering the investigation into the incident. She received three years probation, 500 hours of community service, and a $160,000 fine — and was ultimately banned from the U.

Tonya Harding is 'Getting In Shape and Skating Again' In Preparation for Upcoming Biopic
It hasn’t been an easy road for Tonya Harding.

Seven weeks before the 1994 Olympic Winter Games, her skating rival, Nancy Kerrigan, was clubbed on the knee by an assailant. Authorities soon determined that Harding and her husband, Jeff Gillooly, had allegedly hired the attacker. The ensuing scandal became an international sensation.

For the media, the narrative was perfect: Kerrigan was the pretty, poised, innocent victim. Harding was the rough-around-the-edges assailant from the wrong side of the tracks.

Harding long disputed her involvement, but was eventually convicted of hindering the investigation into the incident. She received three years probation, 500 hours of community service,

Flashback: MTV's 'Celebrity Deathmatch' Pits Kid Rock Against Eminem

Flashback: MTV's 'Celebrity Deathmatch' Pits Kid Rock Against Eminem
The supremely bizarre news that Dmx is going to box George Zimmerman ("and in this corner, the man who shot and killed an unarmed teenager. . .") got us thinking about MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch. For those of you that didn't watch MTV in the late '90s and early 2000's, Celebrity Deathmatch was an ultra-violent claymation show where celebrities of the day like Jerry Springer, Fiona Apple, Puff Daddy and Carmen Electra boxed each other, often to the death. It wasn't uncommon for them to reach Mortal Kombat-like ends with celebrities regularly getting skinned alive or disemboweled.

'Vanilla Ice Goes Amish': Yes, this really is a TV show

'Vanilla Ice Goes Amish': Yes, this really is a TV show
Stop, collaborate, and listen: Ice is back with a brand new reality show. It’s called Vanilla Ice Goes Amish, and it’s about — you guessed it — professional punchline Vanilla Ice (a.k.a. That’s My Boy star Rob Van Winkle) learning construction from an Amish community in Ohio.

This isn’t Ice’s first time at the reality rodeo, of course: He’s also currently starring in The Vanilla Ice Project, a home renovation series on the Diy network (which will air Amish as well.) And in the past, he’s appeared on the second season of trailblazing humiliation factory The Surreal Life,

Barry Williams accepts Danny Bonaduce 'Bigfoot' rematch 'on one condition: I can kick his butt'

Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams have a unique TV history, and this weekend, it gets a new chapter.

The two actors were among ABC's most popular stars of family-friendly sitcoms in the late '60s and early '70s, Bonaduce as precocious Danny on "The Partridge Family" and Williams as earnest Greg on "The Brady Bunch." Their paths crossed memorably in the 2002 premiere of Fox's short-lived (as in, two episodes) "Celebrity Boxing," with Bonaduce pretty much ruling their bout.

On Saturday (June 30), they're back together in "Bigfoot," a new Syfy movie that makes them opponents again, this time in pursuit of the title creature. Other notables are involved -- Howard Hesseman ("Wkrp in Cincinnati") and rock icon Alice Cooper are among co-stars, and actor Bruce Davison ("X-Men") is the director -- but there's no question the Bonaduce vs. Williams rematch is the main event.

"I felt terrible," Bonaduce tells Zap
