Tonya Harding Reportedly Joining “Dancing with the Stars” Athlete Cast

It would appear that Tonya Harding is going to be joining the athlete cast of Dancing With The Stars this coming season. As of right now it’s kind of hard to say anything really good or anything really bad about Tonya depending on what people believe. The recent movie, I, Tonya did a big number in demonizing her mother and those around her while making Tonya look like an innocent. While she might have had a hard life it doesn’t really seem like the former figure skater was really given a realistic look at her life. Whether it was more favorable towards her or less so doesn’t seem to matter since the film has sparked a lot of controversy that is nothing new in Harding’s life.

She’s been dealing with controversy for a long time now since the Kerrigan incident and has supposedly left it all behind her. In fact despite some further hardships later on in life she’s managed to become a rather productive person and a mother. Harding hasn’t had the easiest time at life but she’s been making due for a while and now has a chance to get back onscreen for something that some might be watching just to see if she’ll do any good on anything other than ice skates when it comes to moving around. Were this in a rink with Tonya at her prime you can bet that she’d be one of the most interesting to watch as well as the most fluid. But given that she’s been known for little more than her few stints on TV such as the World’s Dumbest series and a few other documentary-type shows it seems like Tonya is more of an aging oddity at this point than anything.

It almost seems like she should have said ‘thanks but no thanks’ to this chance since it sounds like she’s made a good life for herself outside of the public eye and could possibly have more fulfillment with that then going back in front of the screen where people can see her. For so many years she suffered the kind of ridicule that would easily break a lesser person and in some way did damage her in ways that she won’t talk about. Even if she’s recovered it’d be less about being afraid of being made a public spectacle again as it would be about just staying home and giving people one less person to ridicule for their past. She’s done some stuff in her past that seems shady and less than advisable, but at this point she’s moved forward and is doing just fine it seems. Perhaps coming to DWTS is a way for her to prove that she’s moved beyond all the hype and controversy that went with her name for so long. Or maybe she just really wants to be in the spotlight again, who knows.

In any case she’s coming, and hopefully she’ll get some training and conditioning in as she kind of looks like she’d need it at this point.
