What happened to Tonya Harding after the events of I, Tonya?

I, Tonya, while taking a lot of creative liberties, does a great job of painting a complete picture of the origin, rise and fall of Tonya Harding – one of America’s most famous athletes.

As the film shows, after the attack on Nancy Kerrigan, Tonya is banned from the United States Figure Skating Federation, barring her from the beloved sport for life.

From there, Tonya starts several different careers. She spends time as a professional boxer, works as a landscaper and even builds decks. Eventually, the media forgets about Tonya Harding, and the former figure skater lives for decades in relative anonymity.

Tonya, of course, came back to the fore in 2017 with the release of I, Tonya. Although she was not involved in the production of the feature, the athlete spoke with Margot Robbie. To meet with the former skater, the actress (who is also an executive producer of the feature) traveled to Portland, where Harding was living at the time.

In an interview published shortly after the release of the film, Robbie described Tonya Harding as “extremely kind and lovely”.

“She really cared about me! I thought I would find her to calm things down, but at the end of the day, her concern was with me, how I was going to shoot the skating scenes and how I was going to deal with fame at such a young age,” said the actress.

Where is Tonya Harding these days?

At the time of the release of I, Tonya, Tonya Harding gave several interviews to American TV, including on the Ellen DeGeneres show.

The former athlete also accompanied Margot Robbie at the 2018 Golden Globes – in which I, Tonya was nominated for three categories, winning Best Supporting Actress (Allison Janney).

In the same year, Tonya Harding participated in the 26th edition of Dancing with the Stars (the American Dance of the Celebrities), finishing the competition in third place.

Still in 2018, Harding participated in the reality show Worst Cooks in America (The Worst Cooks in America). The former figure skater won the competition, donating the $25,000 prize to St. Jude.

Today, Tonya Harding lives in Vancouver (Canada) with her third husband, Joseph Price, and an 11-year-old son. To supplement her income, the former athlete also produces videos for fans with the Cameo app.

I, Tonya is available on Netflix.
