british airways jet, more than 170 people on board and burst into flames on the tarmac. you see the passengers streaming off the plane and abc's matt gutman on the scene in las vegas. good morning, matt. good morning, york. when investigators arrived here later this morning. they took a look to see why the fire spread from the engine to the cargo hold. we got to see the smoke this morning up close. you can see the spoke-stained fuselage. british airways call it a technical failure but the captain credited with saving 170 lives aboard that plane called it something different -- a catastrophic failure. >> speedbird 2276 heavy, we are evacuating on the runway. we have a fire. i repeat, we are evacuating. >> reporter: this morning the scramble to explain why this jetliner turned into a fireball. >> mayday, mayday, speedbird, 2276 request fire services.
7:03 am
>> speedbird, 2276 heavy fire services are on the way rfrjts flight 2276 bound for london bursting into flames on the runway in las vegas. you can see them here scrambling to safety. >> what we had here was an uncontained explosion of a jet engine on takeoff roll and that means it came apart catastrophically creating fire and the necessity for the flight crew to stop the airplane on the runway and get everybody off the airplane. >> reporter: 157 passengers and 13 crew aboard the 777 starting its takeoff with a belly fuel of fuel. more than a dozen were injured but all of them were in mortal danger. experts tell abc news a mechanical failure could have caused the engine to come apart spitting out fire and pieces of hot metal which in turn could have sparked a separate fire in the cargo hold. quick thinking crew helped the passengers flop down the emergency slides to the tarmac. >> is everybody okay? >> we had to jump down.
7:04 am

7:05 am
happened is early in this takeoff roll as the airplane ras running down the runway only going 90 miles an hour we say it was an uncontained engine failure. what that means is the engine really just exploded and it sent hot metal into the fuselage and started a fire in the fuselage itself so the fire you see in those pictures is really the airplane itself not the engine that's on fire and after they put the fire out you could see how clearly that fire came to almost penetrating into the cabin which meant this could have been a very serious, serious accident. >> oh, absolutely. as matt was saying, as well. you said they put the fire out quickly. they were on the scene like that and the crew and passengers did a great job of getting off that plane so quickly. >> he did. apparently what happened is, well, they were right on the middle of the runway so the crews were right there, the rescue crews right there to put the fire out. when the cabin crew opened the door they saw the smoke on the left side of the airplane and so they got everybody out the right side, closed that door back up to keep the smoke out of the cabin. crew did a great job in this

7:08 am
>> well, you know, i think he could be good president, there's no doubt about that. >> reporter: no doubt either about the woman she misses most, clinton becoming emotional talking about her late mother. >> and she told me every day, you've got to get up and fight for what you believe in no matter how hard it is. and i think about her a lot. i miss her a lot. i wish she were here with me. >> well, there is another headache for hillary clinton this morning. take a look at the latest poll, clinton at 42% there. her lowest standing. so far this election cycle but it's not just that with her numbers slipping, joe biden and bernie sanders now rising and this more than half of all clinton supporters say they would consider switching their support to biden if he does jump in the race. george, her supporters hoping that this apology helps turn these numbers around. >> can they turn the corner. okay, cecilia, let's see what happens. now the latest on that kentucky county clerk jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. kim davis is free this morning. everyone waiting to see what she

8:16 am
one muffin they say is 5.75 ounces, almost four times the size of our '80s muffin, but get this, they say a serving is half a muffin and we contacted all three muffinmakers. starbucks told us, "we're committed to offering a wide variety of food in the stores. the starbucks blueberry muffin is a customer favorite." dunkin' donuts says they offer a wide range of choices including better-for-you items from our ddsmart menu and costco declined to comment. listen, i don't want to be the calorie cops. >> boo! >> i know. i'm ruining your muffin routine. but, hey, that's the point. if you add something to a routine, you have to know what you're doing. so, if you have seven of these muffins, these are pumpkin and coffee cake, even more calorie dense, seven a week adds 4,000 calories to your daily routine. >> wow! >> that's the equivalent of, tah-dah, a stick and a half of butter. >> okay, some of us do have a little bit of a sweet tooth in the morning so what is an alternate? >> i'll let you do the honors.
8:17 am
so one alternate is a smaller portion. you'd be surprised. cake, this is cake. but because it's a smaller portion, that's why it works. thinking about portions is important and, michael, if you would do the honors. >> so you can eat all three of those? >> no. you're worse than lara. >> i like the little mini muffins. >> this is my captain obvious comment here. eat a piece of fruit and a teeny tiny mini muffin or biscotti, just start with the fruit. it will fill you up. >> yeah. >> so, sorry to be debbie downer on the muffins. >> but look at this. come on. >> it's ridiculous. right? >> we love what you're doing here, becky. >> we all eat breakfast. >> muffins today because you don't want that muffin top. >> it's granolapocalypse tomorrow. >> ooh, granola tomorrow, george. >> i cannot wait for that. our series "stealing celeb secrets," this morning cover girl melissa mccarthy, "people" executive editor kate coyne here to share some of melissa's style tips.
8:18 am
we were talking when it comes to this fashion thing, she really knows her stuff. >> yeah, she studied design and fashion in college. her intention was to become a fashion designer. and then she sort of started dabbling in improv and comedy and the rest is sort of history there. >> yeah. >> and started a fashion line, 77. >> so melissa mccarthy 77 is her line and this is not something she just sort of threw her name on and is looking to rake in money. she's a hands-on part of this entire line. she is executing these designs and she is meticulous about everything from where a seam is running to where a button is placed, something that needs a pleat or a pocket here or there. she's kind of obsessed really. >> she's also meticulous where it will be placed in the store. >> yes. >> talk about that. >> one of the missions she's on and it's really fantastic is that her goal is for all of her sizes and it's important to stress, this is not a plus size line. it's been written up that way. that's wrong. this is an all sizes in sizes 4 through 28.
8:19 am
and she wants all of the sizes of her clothes to be in the same place on the main floor of the stores. so this idea that, you know, a woman who might be a slightly larger size can't go shopping with her friends because at a certain point it's like, bye, see you later, i have to go over to the tire section to where my clothes are, that's crazy, and she's calling out a lot of stores on that and demanding all of her sizes be kept together. >> taking action. she has a lot of tips. number one, and this shouldn't surprise anybody, make it fun. >> yeah, absolutely. you know, what melissa said is that as her sizes changed over the years or her different tastes or ideas changed, she never lost her sense of style and what she wants is this idea that you can wake up any day and some days you feel like wearing cheetah prints and leather pants. >> like george. >> every day. >> every day, and then the next day you want to wake up and feel sort of like a sexy secretary vibe with a silk blouse and a big floppy bow tie or something
8:20 am
like that that you should be able to mix it up, do whatever you want from day to day, that it doesn't have to be something that's so heavy. >> it plays into her next tip, ignore all the rules. >> exactly. there is no -- she wants to make it very strong that you shouldn't be telling yourself, i can't wear that now because i'm a mom, or i can't wear that because i'm over 40, or i can't do that because, you know, i never liked my legs. wear patterns, wear prints, wear whatever you want. >> and i love this one. she says pay it forward. >> pay it forward so two of the shirts in her line have messages on them. one says, you're doing great, and the other one says, good for you, and that was inspired in part by her daughters who one day were walking with her and saw a man walking down the street with just a completely vulgar saying on his t-shirt and she was really inspired to create something that would make other people feel good when they saw it and that they would feel good about putting on. >> we only have five seconds. who is number one on the best dressed -- >> reese witherspoon. all you have to do is look at her on a red carpet and you will know why. she's stunning.
8:21 am

8:36 am
in 1974 at the age of 21 beverly johnson made history and broke color barriers becoming the first african-american woman to grace the cover of american "vogue." more than 500 covers later in a career spanning nearly four decades johnson has more than cemented her place in fashion history. now in her new memoir, "the face that changed it all," johnson is opening up about her early years growing up in buffalo, new york. her meteoric rise to fame as well as her recent return to the headlines in december as one of the more than two dozen women who accused comedian bill cosby of drugging them or sexually assaulting them. >> it was almost like a family member had betrayed me. it was such a huge sense of betrayal for me. these women gave me the courage to come forward. >> reporter: to date cosby has not been charged with a crime in connection to the accusations of drugging and sexual assault and his lawyers have dismissed the allegations.

8:38 am
>> youth. >> youth. >> but describe what a typical day was like. >> well, a typical day is, you know, waking up at 5 a.m. and going on a shoot and, you know, traveling the world and working with amazing photographers. i do remember sleeping a lot in between shooting but it was just a wonderful career, of course, what happens with the wonderful career, you have a personal life also, so i got married very young at 19 years old and, you know, i had an ex-husband that didn't get the meaning of ex and that kind of was, you know, a little complicated but basically it was really an extraordinary life. >> extraordinary. extraordinarily glamorous and incredible but also painful. i mean, the drug addiction was real and serious and life-threatening. >> well, absolutely. i think that people and particularly in the '70s, remember it wasn't addictive in that it increased your intelligence. >> made your eyes sparkle. i read -- >> you thought you looked better

when you were on drugs. >> and you lost your appetite so i mean we know more now than we did then. we lost a lot of people to and we are still losing a lot of people to drugs. >> you say the '70s but is that culture in the modeling world still happening now. >> i don't know. i'm not there in it but hopefully people understand the complications of drugs and the dangers of drugs and -- and basically that's why i really wanted to do my memoirs and that's why i really wanted to share my sobriety with everyone. >> how did you turn your life around and find sobriety? >> i found sobriety in a 12-step program and i found sobriety with the spiritual path that i started to go on and also with the strength of my daughter and my family and also just wanting to, you know, have the life that i always wanted and the life i think i deserved. >> well, you certainly put it all on these pains. it's an incredible read. beverly johnson, thank you very much? thank you very much for having
