4. Gabby Douglas does ‘Wendy Williams’
Gabby Douglas dropped by "The Wendy Williams Show" to talk about her book, Grace, Gold, & Glory: My Leap of Faith, and show the host some of her award-winning moves.
After her historic win at the 2012 London Olympics, Gabby revealed that she treated herself to a pair of Louis Vuitton wedges and a bag. The Olympic gold medalist also chatted about her relationship with her father, though. She’d like for him to read the book and understand how she felt growing up without his consistent presence in her life.
"Hopefully we’ll build a stronger and better relationship in the future," Gabby said of her relationship with her father after not seeing him for quite some time. "It didn’t really make me nervous. I was kind of shocked because I hadn’t seen him in so long and for him to show up at trials was mind-blowing."
She later lightened the mood by getting Wendy on the balance beam. Gabby, of course, was a natural, but Wendy seemed to struggle with keeping her balance.
