Gabby Douglas Shocks Michelle Obama With Junk Food Habit on ‘Tonight Show’

Fresh off her team and all-around gymnastics gold medals at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Gabby Douglas stopped by ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.’ And she was greeted by a fan  — the First Lady herself, Michelle Obama.

Ever the golden girl, Douglas was wearing a gold lamé skirt, which matched the two big medals she brought with her on the show. Michelle Obama happened to also be on the late night couch last night, and the two engaged in some playful joking when Douglas admitted to “splurging on Egg McMuffin’s” after the gymnastics competition was over.

“Gabby don’t encourage that,” Obama, who has been a champion for healthier eating habits in children, said. “I’m sure it was on a whole-wheat muffin,” The First Lady added. “You’re setting me back, Gabby,” she finally admitted as Douglas and Leno kept laughing about Douglas’ inopportune culinary admission.

Later in the show we learned that Gabby got a big kick out of meeting Duchess Kate Middleton at the Games. Also, Leno informed the audience that Gabby Douglas is an anagram for USA Gold. So don’t say Jay Leno never did anything for you.
