    Re: Nancy Kerrigan & Artem Chigvintsev - Season 24

    I really feel for Nancy. I think because of the way she looked and because of those gorgeous, elegant costumes, people thought Nancy was someone she wasn't. In reality, she was a working class girl who was more of a tomboy than an ice princess and she definitely wasn't prepared for the media spotlight glare, even though she was on the international stage for a number of years. I remember the Disneyland (Disney World?) appearance and how she talked (not knowing the mic was picking her up) about how corny it was. Well I totally agreed with her! I grew up in Orange County. I don't hate Disneyland, but I also never drank the Disney Kool-Aid. I got what she was saying, 100%!

    I think Nancy was just a victim of her own naiveté. Was she a little uncouth? Sure. Was she a spoiled brat? I don't think so. Regardless of how she behaved back then, it was a LONG time ago. We should all feel lucky to NOT be judged by how we behaved at that age! I'm willing to give her a chance. I'd suspect she's matured and grown since then.....as we all hopefully have!

    It looks like Nancy and Aertem are having fun based on this article:

    I'm not a Disney fan by any stretch of the imagination.
    Looking forward to seeing how Nancy K. has evolved.

    I was so young (probably 3 or 4 ) when she was popular and the whole scandal went down, that I honestly don't really know much about her.

    Hope she does well though!

    I think she will dance beautifully. Nancy is older, but still young enough to make it to the finals on her skill and grace; (but winning the fans is very important). Simone will probably win most charming female, and Bonner most charming male. Fans will likely flock to those two. Rashad is showing a lot of confidence in himself and that might come across favorably or as arrogance. Heather will do beautifully dancing, but I think her lack of personality will hinder her. So, all in all I think Nancy is up against some tough competition.
    When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is.

    I just love them. Believe it or not, her attitude on Monday nights helps gets me through my work week.
    (Complicated, specifics not for this forum.)
    But thank you, Nancy!
