Kerrigan and Harding: 15 Years After the Attack

The Aftermath

Kerrigan has experienced success after the Olympics. She became the nation's darling and started a foundation to distribute grants to nonprofit organizations that support the visually impaired. She also has hosted the Comcast Network show, ''Nancy Kerrigan's World of Skating,'' since 2005.

But Harding's transition to post-competitive life hasn't been as smooth as Kerrigan's. The United States Figure Skating Association banned the Oregon native for life from skating and she went on to have a mediocre career in boxing.

Harding has also garnered a Driving Under the Influence conviction, a charge of assaulting her second husband with a hubcap, and last year she released a memoir titled "The Tonya Tapes."

In an interview with HBO's "Real Sports" program, Harding seemed indignant over the continuing questions about her role in the Kerrigan plot.

"How much responsibility do you think I need to take? I've paid my debt to society, all right. I live an everyday life, trying to succeed in whatever I do, trying to keep a roof over my head," Harding said during the interview. "How much punishment do you think I need to go through?''

Kerrigan Has No Answer for Harding

Kerrigan said that she had no way to answer such a question and was only concerned about her own life and her three children.

"I have to look back at all the good stuff in my life," Kerrigan said. "I'm so thankful and grateful."
