  1. Im in the UK and remember the incident with Nancy. I was around 9 at the time and thought Nancy was so pretty and Tonya was so evil. I forgot about it until I saw the film, did a little research after and my goodness, nowI feel for Tonya. She was abused by her mum (yes you worked v hard, but that doesn't stop you praising your daughter. If you felt that bad about her supposed lack of thanks you could have stopped funding her years before. You wanted the glory and money she would bring you), and partner and snubbed by the sports snobs, but she was good! She may have a hard manipulative side but I think many abuse victims do, as a defence mechanism. Now, as a grown up and a mum myself, I just want to give her a cuddle and tell her she's worth it.

  2. I hope they find Jesus and reconcile,clearly the woman abused her, but you can blatantly see that this lady DOES LOVE and miss her daughter ,you ONLY get ONE mother…wish the best for them both…

  3. I will never understand them taking away tonya’s passion for one over hearing and accusing her of doing the crime instantly, Nancy just needs to get over her self she was simply bland and boring. Tonyas story still upsets me to this day for a horrible narcissist parent and a nasty whiney opponent and skating being the only thing she had. Especially them trying to make her look like she had a perfect life and that’s the way it’s supposed to be. I hope one day they give her the medal she deserves

  4. What Tonya's mama needs is anger management, psychiatric treatment and guidance counseling or else child care services must take her away as part of this outrageous disputable problem.

  5. I feel sad for her mom. She worked hard for her daughter, she brought her to school, she did everything for her. I think that's how she showed her love. I feel so sorry for her. :'(
    Kind regards from Germany 🇩🇪

  6. Seen the movie recently, had to see what this monster looked like in RL.
    I actually remember when it all went down, hard copy would report on this story constantly. ahhhhh the 90s.

  7. She may have bin tpuph and abusive but it also cant be denied that she sacrificed a lot of time and money into helping Tonya succeed . Than there was Tonya hereself who was portreyed as having a strong fiery impulsive personality for a single mother to handle . Its a compicated dynamic and hard to know the full story .

  8. You all hating on her mom, sure she was abusive but she have been through 4 divorce and was addictive to drugs, but she work her ass OFF to send Tanya to skate. If it wasn’t for her caring about her daughter she would have never succeeded in her life. Her mother didn’t wanted her to be like her.
