Recently, Olympic Gold Medalist Star, Gabby Douglas and Regina King made their rounds to promote the new movie about the 18-year-old athlete. The two chatted up the new Lifetime movie based on her life, The Gabby Douglas Story.
The movie follows Gabby (played by Imani Hakim from “Everybody Hates Chris” and Sydney Mikayla), who turned her struggles into gold as part of “The Fierce Five” at the 2012 London Olympics. The made-for-TV flick also focuses on her mother Natalie (King), who struggled to meet the enormous financial demands of a gymnastics career while bringing up Gabby and three other children.
The Gabby Douglas Story premieres Saturday, February 1st @ 8PM ET/PT on Lifetime.
