In the special, which aired Thursday night, Harding confessed that she had an inkling of the plan between her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and his friend, Shawn Eckardt, to attack Kerrigan prior to the 1994 Olympics. "At this point, it's so much easier and better to just be.it's not really part of my life".

Golden admitted one incident from the movie did occur.

Kerrigan went on to win a silver medal at the Olympics, weeks after the attack.
