Celebrity Deathmatch

It was the “WHY?” heard ’round the world when ice princess Nancy Kerri­gan’s kneecap was smacked weeks before the 1994 Olympics. Who was behind the attack? Jeff Gillooly, ex-husband of figure skating’s bad girl with the bad perm, Tonya Harding.After becoming persona non grata on the rink, Harding pursued other careers, including Internet porn star and wrestling manager. In 2002, she found her true calling after serving equally scandalous Paula Jones a mighty ass-whuppin’ on the Fox network’s Celebrity Boxing. Having ended a brief stint as a legit pugilist, Harding makes guest appearances at events such as tonight’s Season’s Beatings at the National Guard Armory (100 South 20th Street) in Kansas City, Kansas. Fifteen cage matches and free beer for everyone of legal drinking age already make this the awesomest thing to do tonight. Tonya Harding is just the cherry bomb on top. Tickets cost $18 to $40, and bell time is 7:30 p.m. See mlsen tertainment.net for details.
