Gabby Douglas Biopic Heading To TV!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersZportzInspirationOlympicsGymnastics

gabby douglas lifetime biopic tv

You might have watched the real positive side of things happen live during the Olympics, but what you DIDN'T see is why we're getting a tv biopic of young gymnast Gabby Douglas!

Lifetime has just greenlighted The Gabby Douglas Story, which will be an original movie starring Imani Hakim and Sydney Mikayla as the two-time Olympic gold medalist! Gabby also has a role, but we're not sure how she fits in, when the other two ladies are playing Gabby during her childhood/teen years respectively!

Gabby started gymnastics at 6 years old, and has been called a real-life prodigy — she's also had to battle bullying and racism. She also had to leave her mother, three siblings and grandmother in Virginia Beach at age 14 and move to Des Moines, Iowa, to train. Obvs it was the right choice!

If you've ever wanted an interesting true story to be a movie — look no further!

Oh, and if you've ever wanted to know about her life AFTER the olympics… CLICK HERE!

When you think about it, The ESPYS are just like any other award show.

Except instead of actors and musicians, you have some of the best athletes in the entire world in attendance!

There was certainly no shortage of stars last night as some of the biggest names in sports made their way to the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles for the 20th Annual ESPY Awards!

Michael Phelps, Maria Sharapova, LeBron James, Danica Patrick, and many more athletes showed up to share some laughs and remember some of the most inspirational moments of the past year!

And just because they're athletes does NOT mean they don't know how to work a red carpet!

Ch-ch-check out some of the attendees making their grand entrances (below)!

EXCLUSIVE! Gabby Douglas Talks About Life After The Olympics!

Gabby Douglas may only be 17 years-old, but she's already accomplished WAY more than your average teen! The gymnast already has two Olympic gold medals under her belt and is currently promoting her second book, Raising The Bar!

But with the London Olympics behind her, Gabby has a TON of free time on her hands! So what does the golden girl like to do in her spare time?

In this EXCLUSIVE interview, she revealed that when she isn't hitting the gym or doing book signings, she's probably watching Vampire Diaries! As if we didn't love her enough already, Gabby says she ALWAYS makes sure her schedule is clear so she can get her Ian Somerhalder fix!

The gold-medalist also says she LOVES listening to Rihanna, Kanye West, and Beyonce, and she's also been learning how to play the guitar in her spare time! Who knows? Maybe we'll see an album drop before the 2016 Rio Olympics! Ha!

Seriously, we're not quite sure how we aren't BFFs with Gabby, because it sounds like we have SOOO much in common! Maybe we can have a Vampire Diaries party and drool over Ian together! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out the rest of the interview (above)!

Gabby Douglas Takes Over Radio Disney!

Filed under: DisneyOlympics

gabby douglas olympics radio disney take over book memoir guest star show upcoming

The Olympics were cool and all, but Gabby Douglas got to take over Radio Disney!

During the show, they talked about all sorts of stuff — from the gold medals to her new book, Grace, Gold and Glory : My Leap of Faith, which is a memoir of everything she's done so far! We hope she writes another one when she's old some day, it would be an amazing companion piece!

Plus, she has an upcoming guest appearance on Disney XD's Kickin' It, where she plays herself — it premiers this summer! Before then, though, you can totes hear her on Radio Disney, as that will be ready for your ears on May 13th!

So fab! We're glad everything seems so great for you, Gabby!!

Gabby Douglas Is Raising The Bar For Barnes & Noble's Book Signings!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionInspirationBookzCeleb Kidz

gabby douglas signs copies of her new book raising the bar(1)

Last year, Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas posed with her memoir, and now, she's not only showing off her new book, Raising the Bar, but she also did a book signing!!

On Wednesday, the 17-year-old gymnast headed to a Barnes & Noble in New York City, where she dressed in a cute top, jeans and boots, to sign her new published piece for lucky fans.

Gabby is set to compete in the 2016 Olympics, and while she trains for the next few years, we're pretty sure she's gonna be doing more inspirational things like writing books.

After all, she did make history by being the first female of color and the first African-American gymnast, so we're thinking she can do anything she wants to do!!

Ch-ch-check out the cutie pie at her book signing (below)!
