    I'm proud he admitted and changed. This took a lot of soul searching and goodness to do. Gratz to his bravery.

    I don’t mind that they interviewed this guy. Another perspective of what actually happened. If money’s tough and you can block off your conscience and morals to hurt people it’s not so far fetched

    Sun damage skin, did not age well. At least he is sorry. This is proof Tanya had nothing to do with it.

    I don’t buy tonyas version “i overheard them saying they should take someone out”. Her ONLY rival was Nancy so clearly the would have been talking about her by name not as “someone”. Tonya knew she was the target, maybe didn’t know details but she could have stopped it but looked the other way instead.

    15 months in prison? What a joke. I though he would have had to serve 15 years….

    I doubt Tonya would condone breaking someones leg especially a female and a skater. I think this dirt bag should have had 15 years not 15 months. If he has money now he should pay a colossal amount to Nancy and I mean a f#cking huge payout.
