The world鈥檚 interest in Tonya Harding has been renewed thanks to the dark comedy I, Tonya, which tells the story of Harding鈥檚 role in the 1994 attack on her skating rival Nancy Kerrigan. Harding has largely stayed out of the spotlight in the years since the scandal, but she recently sat down for an interview with ABC News鈥 Amy Robach for the network鈥檚 Truth and Lies docu-series.

Harding was a star in the figure skating world in the early 鈥90s, but when she was implicated in the 1994 attack on her teammate and rival, her world unraveled around her. She pleaded guilty to conspiring to hinder prosecution in the attack, but has denied any involvement in the actual assault. Now the 47-year-old is opening up about her life before, during, and after the moment that changed everything.

She told Robach that she believes some people still think she actually carried out the attack on Kerrigan, because 鈥渢hey don鈥檛 listen.鈥 She explained, 鈥淭he media had me convicted of doing something wrong before I had even done anything at all, before I had talked to anyone, before I get out of bed. I鈥檓 always the bad person. Is it a challenge from the Lord to see how far I can be pushed until I break and become nothing?鈥

Harding said she still deals with negative attention, and that when it comes to what others think about her, 鈥淚 do care. I mean, I care, but I don鈥檛 care. The most important people are my family and my closest friends. Everybody else鈥檚 opinions don鈥檛 matter. So my motto is, 鈥楾ake care of me, so I can take care of my family.鈥欌

According to ABC, she also spent time during the interview reflecting on her troubled relationships with her mother, LaVona 鈥淪andy鈥 Golden, and her ex Jeff Gillooly, who worked with a friend to hire the man who attacked Kerrigan.

Additionally, the special features rarely seen video of Harding as a child, and interviews with I, Tonya鈥s Margot Robbie, Allison Janney (who plays Harding鈥檚 mother), and Sebastian Stan (who takes on the role of the skater鈥檚 ex-husband). ABC also spoke with reporters and columnists who were covering the sport (and the attack) at the time, as well as coaches, the former district attorney, and experts on the athlete鈥檚 career.

These days, Harding is happily remarried and has a son, and believes that she鈥檚 stronger than ever. 鈥淵ou can鈥檛 push me that far anymore 鈥檆ause I鈥檝e been nothing. And I鈥檝e been nothing several times. But it鈥檚 my faith in myself and in my father that comes back to me and makes me get back up off my butt and be something worth being proud of.鈥 Through tears, she added, 鈥淚 always wanted my daddy to be proud. And now, I want my son to be proud.鈥

Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story will air on Thursday, January 11, at 9pm ET on ABC.
