The Harding they come, the Harding they fall

Tonya cited for drunken driving accident; Lisa Bonet grumps out of "Cosby" reunion; Rod Stewart: "I'm like a rabbit." Plus: Next chapter of Hurley-Bing; and Sharon Stone recovering.

Topics: Celebrity,

It’s been more than a month since toughie Tonya Harding trounced pipsqueak Paula Jones before a gaping nation on “Celebrity Boxing,” but Harding’s apparently still celebrating.

Perhaps a bit too hard.

The former knee-whacking ice skater was cited for drunken driving by police in Battle Ground, Wash., in the wee hours of Saturday morning after she crashed her pickup truck into a ditch and failed both a sobriety and a breath test, the Associated Press reports.

Lucky for Harding, neither she nor her passenger were hurt in the accident.

But really, Tonya, you’re skating on thin ice.

“I was not feeling the love. It was a take-it-or-leave-it, with-or-without-you offer, and I felt devalued and disrespected.”

Lisa Bonet on why she’s decided to ditch NBC’s “Cosby Show Reunion” next month, to People magazine.

Rod’s rod, still solid after all these years

Don’t order any Viagra for Rod Stewart. Time has apparently done nothing to diminish the aging’s rocker’s unusually powerful sex drive.

Even at 57, Stewart says he’s not apt to let a day go by without a little nookie.

“I’m like a rabbit. I could do it anytime, anyplace,” Stewart shares in the German newspaper Bild. “You could introduce me to the most beautiful, most intelligent woman in the world, and if she isn’t good in bed, I’d rather be with someone else.”

Which is not to say Stewart has similar confidence in his other instrument of seduction, his voice.

“I never know quite exactly if it might fail me,” he says. “I’m always making sure I eat the right things, get enough sleep, don’t drink too much, don’t go into smoky rooms, and don’t shout too much.”

So I guess he’s not a screamer.

Who here believes him?

“I’m very, very humbled.”

Sylvester Stallone on being named Action Star of the Millennium by the American Video Software Dealers Association, in an interview with Video Premieres magazine.

Juicy bits

Bing-pong: Liz Hurley issued a statement striking back at her alleged baby daddy Stephen Bing, who last week announced that he was initiating legal proceedings to determine if he is, in fact, the father of her baby son, Damian, as she claims. “Elizabeth finds Stephen’s statement astonishing seeing that he hasn’t made any attempt to contact her whatsoever since he was informed of Damian’s birth by her sister Katie on April 4,” Hurley’s handlers told the press. “He has neither called her, written to her, or had any mutual friends pass on any messages. Elizabeth has always made it clear that she is willing to participate in paternity tests and is extremely distressed that Stephen is attempting to resolve these personal issues publicly.” Unlike her.

Whatever else you might want to say about Sharon Stone’s brain, it’s apparently in much better shape now than it was a few months ago, when she was treated for internal bleeding caused by a tear in the artery at the base of her skull. Doctors have attributed the tear to a horseback-riding injury exacerbated by chiropractic adjustments and the heavy costume she had to wear in the 1998 movie “Sphere.” “I certainly had a white-light experience. Had a real close walk there,” Stone told USA Today in her first in-depth interview since the unfortunate interlude. “It’s really nice to be alive.” Though she’s still getting “some headaches,” she says she’s “processing through it.” We look forward to her complete recovery so we can start making fun of her again.

    Young Daya has yet to become entirely jaded, but she has the character's trademark skeptical pout down pat.

    CINDY   
    Cindy's embrace of Judaism makes sense when we see her childhood, lived under the fist of a terrifying father who preached a fire-and-brimstone version of Christianity. As she put it: "I was raised in a church where I was told to believe and pray. And if I was bad, I’d go to hell."

    CAPUTO   
    Joey Caputo has always tried to be a good guy, whether it's offering to fight a disabled wrestler at a high school wrestling event or giving up his musical ambitions to raise another man's child. But trying to be a nice guy never exactly worked out for him -- which might explain why he decides to take the selfish route in the Season 3 finale.

    BOO   
    In one of the season's more moving flashbacks, we see a young Boo -- who rejected the traditional trappings of femininity from a young age -- clashing with her mother over what to wear. Later, she makes the decision not to visit her mother on her deathbed if it means pretending to be something she's not. As she puts it, "I refuse to be invisible, Daddy. Not for you, not for Mom, not for anybody.”

    POUSSEY
    We already know a little about Poussey's relationship with her military father, but this season we saw a softer side of the spunky fan-favorite, who still pines for the loving mom that she lost too young.

    PENNSATUCKY
    Pennsatucky had something of a redemption arc this season, and glimpses of her childhood only serve to increase viewer sympathy for the character, whose mother forced her to chug Mountain Dew outside the Social Security Administration office and stripped her of her sexual agency before she was even old enough to comprehend it.

    CHANG
    This season, we got an intense look at the teenage life of one of Litchfield's most isolated and underexplored inmates. Rebuffed and scorned by her suitor at an arranged marriage, the young Chinese immigrant stored up a grudge, and ultimately exacted a merciless revenge.

    HEALY
    It's difficult to sympathize with the racist, misogynist CO Sam Healy, but the snippets we get of his childhood -- raised by a mentally ill mother, vomited on by a homeless man he mistakes for Jesus when he runs to the church for help -- certainly help us understand him better.

    This season, we learned a lot about one of Litchfield's biggest enigmas, as we saw the roots of Norma's silence (a childhood stutter) and the reason for her incarceration (killing the oppressive cult leader she followed for decades).

    While Nicki's mother certainly isn't entirely to blame for her daughter's struggles with addiction, an early childhood flashback -- of an adorable young Nicki being rebuffed on Mother's Day -- certainly helps us understand the roots of Nicki's scarred psyche.
