The ladies always saved face in the press though, with Jackie telling the on his ass.
Reports of the affair came from on-set sources but the rest was all according to Woods, who sued Young for “intentional infliction of emotional distress.” She denied it and the matter was settled out of court, but not before the whole ordeal landed them both on the cover of O’Connor caused an uproar when she refused to allow the National Anthem to be played before a concert of hers at New Jersey’s Garden State Arts Center, which was the venue’s tradition.
One of the biggest sports feuds of all time wasn’t between rival teams — it was a power struggle between two giants on the Lakers.
The photographer betrayed her andran them without her consent, forcing her to hand over the crown.Sinatra performed at the Center a few days later and told the audience that O’Connor should leave the country, but also that he’d like to meet her, so he could “kick her in the ass.” She responded the next year, saying, “I can’t hit this man back, he’s, like, 78 years of age, and I’d probably kill him.” In 1992, O’Connor would go on to have an even bigger feud with the Pope when she tore a photo of him in half on , replacing Johnny Carson. David Letterman, who hosted his own NBC show in the slot after Carson’s, was widely expected to land the gig. As it turned out, Harding’s ex-husband had hired help to break Kerrigan’s leg so rival Tonya could skate her way to victory at the Olympics six weeks later.The 1991 shocker led to an appearance where Carson asked Letterman, “Just how pissed off are you? With a limp and a bruise, Kerrigan was unable to compete at the Championships the next day, handing Harding the win."We haven't had a really good example here of maturity,” he told the Associated Press.At the end of the season, O’Neal was traded and the feud became a slightly healthier inter-team rivalry.
