Martha Stewart To Gabby Douglas: 'I Didn't Recognize You With Clothes On'

NBC

Martha Stewart reportedly had quite the awkward run-in earlier this week with Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas.

The New York Post reported on Friday that the two women were sitting backstage at the "Today" show when Stewart didn't recognize the Olympian sitting next to her. She allegedly awkwardly asked Douglas to identify herself, to which Stewart eventually replied, "I didn’t recognize you with clothes on."

Stewart's rep confirmed the incident to the Post and said that the domestic goddess was simply used to seeing Douglas in her gymnastics uniform.

Stewart appeared on the program to discuss her decision to join the online dating community. Douglas sat down with Savannah Guthrie to discuss her new book Raising the Bar. Douglas and Guthrie chatted about running into each other at the White House Correspondents' Dinner a few days earlier.
