If Margot Robbie and Allison Janney stop by “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” to cheer on Tonya Harding and Sasha Farber, they might not just be in the audience. Asked by “Access Hollywood” if the “I, Tonya” stars will visit, the pair had some big plans for their VIP guests.
“They’re gonna be in the number,” Farber says. “We want them in the number, right?”
“Yes, yes!” Harding replies.
We can see it now: Harding and Farber will do a dance trio with Robbie, and then Janney will interrupt with Little Man perched on her shoulder and her shiny new Oscar in tow to declare, “Well, my storyline is disappearing right now. What the f—.”
In all seriousness, Harding has no idea if Robbie and Janney will stop by yet. “I hope so,” she says. “I haven’t been able to tell anybody yet.”
Harding, who’s said she’s “perfectly fine” with comparisons to Nancy Kerrigan, also revealed that she watched Kerrigan and their other former figure skating rival, Kristi Yamaguchi, during their “Dancing” stints. Yamaguchi won Season 7 10 years ago, while Kerrigan tied for sixth with “The Bachelor” star Nick Viall on Season 24 last spring.
“I did [watch them], but it’s different,” Harding says. “Being actually in it and being part of this, it’s just begun and it’s very overwhelming.”
“Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” premieres Monday, April 30 at 8/7c on ABC.
