Not a reality TV show... not yet anyway... I wonder if Oprah will bring up the hair nonsense that took over Twitter last week.

From the press release:

OPRAH WINFREY INTERVIEWS OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST AND GYMNASTIC CHAMPION GABBY DOUGLAS IN IOWA

Interview To Air Sunday, August 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

On the heels of gymnast Gabby Douglas' victorious Olympic experience in London winning gold medals in both the individual all-around and team competitions, Oprah Winfrey sits down with the 16-year-old for a candid conversation from her training ground in West Des Moines, Iowa. The interview will air on "Oprah's Next Chapter" at a special time on Sunday, August 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

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.
