She Released a Sex Tape, Started a Band, and Tried Acting
Following the famous incident, Harding added a brand-new element of scandal to her life and released a sex tape with her now-ex-husband Jeff Gillooly. Reportedly, she sold the tape to Penthouse magazine for an estimated $400,000 in 1994.
Being banned from competitive figure skating, she gave other aspirations a go, including an appearance as a manager on a professional wrestling show at Los Gringos Locos. Deciding that wrestling wasn't her scene, she formed a band called the Golden Blades, who were booed off stage at their only performance in Portland, OR, in 1995. Harding found herself behind the camera once again after playing a part in the low-budget movie Breakaway, which was released in 1996.
