Could Olympic golden girl Gabby Douglas come to Atlanta for college?
We’re working on finding out more after TMZ posted a short item saying Spelman College made sure Douglas received a bag of congratulatory gear from the school following her triumphs in London.
A number of celebrities, including some with Atlanta connections, are among the throngs offering their well wishes via Twitter.
“Dreams do come true, Gabby!!! Congrats ‘All Around’” tweeted actress Raven-Symone while actress Gabrielle Union, who will be spending time here working on a new BET show “Being Mary Jane” tweeted, “GOLDEN GIRL!!! I’m in awe.”
“Vampire Diaries” actress Nina Dobrev upped the ante, tweeting, “I hear you’ll be coming to Atlanta soon I promise to personally show you around the set if you show me your gold metal!”
Added her “Vampire Diaries” co-shar Ian Somerhalder: “We’d like to congratulate you and the U.S. Women’s team on your gold medal! Go Team USA! Love, Ian.”
She’s also gotten Twitter love from President Barack Obama, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Oprah Winfrey.
The gymnastics star is having a big time at the 2012 Games.
“I met Kate, the duchess, that was a cool experience for me,” she said during a press conference, the AP reported. “I’ve always wanted to inspire people, and the thing about the Olympics, this quote ‘inspire a generation’ – so, you know, I can check that off my bucket list.”
And this AP story reported that she “is the most clicked-upon athlete on NBC’s Olympics website,” and noted that “through Sunday, her profile on the site had more than 18 million page views. That’s far above the second-ranked athlete, swimmer Michael Phelps, whose profile had just over 7 million page views.”
