But now, Tonya's back in the news with a new memoir! I'm totes scoring a free copy of that when it comes out. Anyway, in an interview with Newsweek, TH is claiming that she knew nothing about the attack beforehand and that her husband and his accomplice (who have both changed their names since the incident btw) held her at gunpoint and raped her when she threatened to go to the FBI. Ex-hubby Jeff Gillooly (now Jeff Stone, which is no where near as fun to say) obviously denies. Tonya also claims that her mother used to beat the crap out of her, which her mom also denies but said "If it makes her money, fine." I wonder if my mom would be that cool if I started spreading rumors about her? No, I'm pretty sure she'd take up child abuse right then and there. Is it still child abuse if I'm a grown-up? Hmm...
So now the question is, what to think? And we all know the answer to that - or rather the question: What would Brian Boitano do? - or in this case, What would Brian Boitano think? Well, according to Brian:
"If you publish a book like that, you probably need to do it for financial reasons. If people are going to read it, they have to read it for the entertainment value, and not go by every word as the gospel truth."
Thanks, Brian! I'll keep that in mind when I get my grubby little hands on a copy.
ps. get the title? book clubbing. 'cause she clubbed Nancy? see what I did there?
