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 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)!
