Debi Thomas won a Bronze Medal for her figure skating during the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.

How did Debi go from this...



...to this?

yeah, something is rotten in Denmark. she should be living the life as an orthopedic surgeon, but she's been fired twice!? lost custody of her child. living in a trailer with her bf and his two kids.

all signs seem to point to drug use or some form of mental illness. i hope not.

when you have the ability to be an orthopedic surgeon, but have been fired TWICE, something's wrong. And if that doesn't even work out, why not try and get into coaching?? Something's definitely missing from that interview.
