Gabby and Michelle (in a lovely Bibhu Mohapatra number) had great rapport–they’d met once before in 2011–but they did hit a snag when Gabby mentioned she celebrated her gold medal win with an egg McMuffin. Michelle, health food/anti-obesity activist and founder of the Let’s Move! campaign, was none too pleased.
“GABBY!” the First Lady chided the 16-year-old. “You’re setting me back!”
For her part, Gabby, who will most certainly be approached for an endorsement deal by McDonalds (if she hasn’t been already, cough, cough), laughed an apology to the First Lady.Another awesome part of the interview was when Jay asked Gabby to take a look at “another young gymnast” doing a headstand. Oh, and did we mention that ‘young gymnast’ is Michelle Obama? Doing a headstand. In a bikini. Yep.
“Her form is a ten!” Gabby said, high-fiving the First Lady.
“I wish you were around when I was doing that,” Michelle said.
We think Gabby just made up for that egg McMuffin gaffe, don’t you?
Also, we smell a Gabby-Malia play date in the works soon…
