Oprah to Gab with Gabby Douglas

Oprah Winfrey sits down with gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas on an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter airing Aug. 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET on OWN.

The Queen of Talk will gab with Gabby, 16, from her training ground in West Des Moines, Iowa, the network said in a statement Friday:

“Douglas will discuss her rise to Olympic gold and the intense and immediate media attention she found herself facing in London. Winfrey will visit the host family that provided a second home for Douglas during her training, and visit the gym in West Des Moines, Iowa where Douglas trained six days a week in preparation for London. Winfrey will also speak with Gabby’s mother Natalie, who cheered Gabby on from the stands every day and stood behind her as she pursued her Olympic dreams.”
