Tonya Harding, Adam Rippon and Jamie Anderson are reportedly heading to 'Dancing With the Stars'
Rumor has it that the disgraced Olympian is going to be a part of the cast of Dancing With the Stars. Joining her will be Adam Rippon and Jamie Armstrong.
Tonya Harding is going to be joining the set of 'Dancing With the Stars'. The ex-Olympian is all set to make her comeback on the popular dance show, which will be the first ever all-athletes season.
Harding is famously known for her feud with Nancy Kerrigan. Their feud was the most publicised scandal which was made into the 2017 movie, 'I, Tonya'.
The feud took a dark turn when Nancy was attacked by a man who was hired by Harding's ex-husband and her bodyguard. The attack was planned before the 1994 Winter Olympics.
Nancy Kerrigan competed on season 24 of 'Dancing With the Stars'. She placed 6th on the show, seemingly having underperformed due to an injury.
Now, it looks like Tonya wants to bask in the 'Dancing With the Stars' spotlight. Is this an attempt to best her nemesis?
The disgraced figure skater recently gave an interview with ABC in which she denied having any animosity toward Nancy Kerrigan. "The media had me convicted of doing something wrong before I had even done anything at all. I’m always the bad person," she said.
"I always wanted my daddy to be proud. And now, I want my son to be proud.” Tonya firmly says in the interview.
According to Us Weekly, Olympic Figure Skater and America's sweetheart Adam Rippon is also joining the cast of 'Dancing With the Stars'. Also adding to the slew of talent will be Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson.
Adam allegedly confirmed this news with Us Weekly back in March. “If the opportunity came about I think it would be fun,” he told the magazine. Rippon also added that as a figure skater, he probably had the upper hand.
As for his choice of dance partner? "Somebody who can keep up with my quick whips whoever that woman may be," the Olympian quipped.
Adam made headlines when he became the first openly-gay U.S male athlete to win a medal in the Winter Olympics. He won a bronze for the US figure skating team in Korea this February.
Jamie Anderson brought home gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The snowboarder took home gold once again in 2018 in Pyeongchang.
ABC is making the 'Dancing With the Stars' season 26 announcement on Good Morning America on April 13.
