She’s lied so much she doesn’t know what isn’t a lie anymore,” Golden said during the show.

As readers know, Harding, 47, previously spoke out about her rocky relationship with her mom, with their ongoing feud even making it into the plot of the film I, Tonya.

While Harding once claimed her mother once attacked her with a knife – an incident which Golden denied.
