8:07 am
rupturing, a small bowel obstruction. these are really to manage the complications. >> so something went wrong obviously on this. lot of people suffer from this as you say, but it's not talked about a lot. can you break it down for us? what is it? >> let's go mini med school here, some basic anatomy, we have some ovaries, the fallopian tube, the uterus endometriosis for reasons we're not clear on gets disbursed all over. in some cases on the surface of the lungs. and those glands are hormonally responsive. they contract along with the uterus. they can pain when they attach to the bowel and bladder. they can cause problems with that. they can cause air in the lung. we have seen it in incisions on the surface of skin. so, again it's really the complications of endometriosis that can be so problematic. >> so, is that what leads to the cyst? >> right, a cyst, a blood-filled
8:08 am
cyst that can become quite large and in some cases can rupture. we need to do surgery. but to be clear, our ovaries make cysts for a living. that's the ovulation process. if you hear the term cyst doesn't necessarily mean you'll need surgery. >> okay, you have a lot more information on this. jen will be taking your questions throughout the morning. tweet her or go to "gma's" facebook page. over to george and amy. straight to jesse with the morning menu. a look at the morning menu behind the style and grace of nancy reagan and her influence beyond the white house. we got two people who knew her very well. and they're going to join us here live. plus, the bachelor's exes are telling all. they are going face to face with ben. and opening up to the camera. i know exactly what that feels like. plus, it's a jungle here in times square. the one and only jack hanna is here. he brought with him some wild friends. and it's all coming up on "gma." hello, guy. ♪ huh.

the editor of "glamour" has said you can track the idea of red as a power color back to nancy reagan. some said she was influential in making red the republican color. while she down played the role of first lady, she became a political figure in her own right and certainly did it with style. george and amy. >> she certainly did. we're joined now by two people who knew nancy reagan well, mrs. reagan's press secretary, she joins us from virginia. >> and here in new york, vanity fair special correspondent bob colacello. good morning to both of you. bob, let's begin with you. nancy reagan said in the past, she never considered her place in the history, it was always ronnie's place in history. what do you think is her legacy? >> think their legacy one and the same. it's very funny, especially as the years went by, she wanted to
8:18 am
be recognized for how much she had done and on the serious side of things but she never wanted to outshine her husband. it was a delicate balance in how she wanted to be written about. but she -- they were just joined at the hip. i mean, she was his -- not only the gatekeeper but his adviser, his soulmate, his public relations adviser. listing post. >> and his caretaker at the end. >> and caretaker all the way through. >> and sheila, nancy reagan didn't like to talk about her influence on the policy of president reagan. but she was really a force behind the scenes at the white house? >> well, i think any -- any wife of a president, if they have a very close relationship, inevitably assumes some of that role just because he trusts her and he knows that anything that she's talking to him about is -- has to do with his own best interest. and that's what i always saw.
8:19 am
she really never initiated any policy and she wasn't particularly interested in it. but she did have -- people knew how much influence she had on the president and so, they would come to her and make their case hoping that she would tell the president about it. >> right. bob, you once asked about her influence on the policymaking? >> yeah, people say you have influence around putting the right people around your husband and getting rid of those who turned out not to be right. i said about policy, was there any area you took an interest in? >> oh no, ronnie had his ideas, his beliefs. he was hard to change. almost in a whisper she said, maybe that small russia thing. major initiative of the whole ronald reagan political -- >> opening with gorbachev. >> anticommunism.
8:20 am
the evil empire and then the opening with gorbachev. working together, really promoted and worked around some of the hard-liners of the administration, i think she had -- she wanted her husband to be seen as a peacemaker not as a warmonger. >> and sheila, as we talk about the influence of nancy reagan, we have to talk about one of the greatest impacts, people talk about how she brought glamour back to the white house. back in the day, she was criticized for that as well. how did she handle her critics? >> well, i think she knew she was in for it. for example, when she ordered the new -- as ronald reagan called it -- the new dishes. for the white house, she knew she was going to take some heat for it. you know, so they went out and they got a private foundation to donate the money when she redecorated the white house, she got contributions from
8:21 am
individuals, but even that created some controversy and she knew she wanted to do it and she was willing to take the heat for it. i think that's probably the best way to describe it. >> which led to that famous secondhand rose moment. tell us about that. >> oh, man, that was great. well, that came in the second year. helen thomas came to see me and she said, you know, we're going to do a piece about nancy reagan and we were wondering if you'd consider having her make a little cameo appearance of some kind. i said, we'll think about that. so, they sent me the lyrics to the song they were going to do and i -- i talked to -- what i did, i did the reverse of her, i went to mike deaver and jim baker and all the people i knew
