Why she might be annoying:

    When she was a top ranking junior skater, she would do her leaps and spins in practice, with disregard to the courteousy of other skaters on the ice.
    In a famous incident, she went on the ice while the partisan German crowd booed the judges for giving the hometown girl, Gerti Schanchet, low marks.
    She thought the crowd booed her, so she broke down and cried uncontrollably for several minutes.
    When the crowd realized what had happened, and Dorothy went back on to the ice to retrieve her skate guards, the crowd cheered her wildly to make up for it.
    She regained her composure and decided that she would skate, and won the Silver Medal at the World Championship (1974).

    She does a commercial for Vioxx.

Why she might not be annoying:

    She suffers from nerves and sometimes skates with anxiety.
    When she purchased the Ice Capades, she eliminated their weekly weigh-in of skaters, feeling that it humiliated them.
