7:01 am

7:02 am
cats win it all. cats win it all. cats win it all. >> what a moment for everyone right there. just incredible and, of course, the hero kris jenkins facing off against his brother nate britt on north carolina's team and he will join us this morning. >> villanova understandably canceling classes to celebrate but unfortunately there was some weather cancellations across the midwest and the north with that deadly winter storm. snow from buffalo to boston. creating dangerous and deadly driving conditions. abc's linzie janis is in hard-hit syracuse, new york, with the very latest. good morning to you, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, amy. it is ten degrees here in syracuse. that is a record-breaking low for this day in april and it is roughly 20 degrees colder than average for this time of year. this springtime winter weather is causing chaos on roads across the northeast. overnight, blizzard-like conditions in massachusetts.
7:03 am
nearly 1900 crew working through the night clearing roads. treacherous conditions leading to wreck after wreck. this u.p.s. truck struggling to get traction. in upstate new york, a bus carrying three dozen college students flipping over and winding up upside down. incredibly, there were no serious injuries. but in another accident, outside rochester, one person was killed and 13 taken to the hospital. >> we had snow, we had blowing snow. the road conditions are certainly being taken into consideration as part of the investigation. >> reporter: police investigating whether the van driver was distracted and in connecticut, a tractor-trailer sliding and jackknifing on this bridge. new jersey police releasing this dramatic dash cam video, trees snapping from heavy winds sunday. that chevy pickup airborne after slamming into the falling trees. >> are you all right?
7:04 am
>> reporter: the driver of the pickup shaken but okay. and one of the biggest concerns for this morning's commute is ice, especially on back roads and residential streets. this one slick enough to double as a hockey rink. amy. >> oh, no, that's just wrong, linzie, on so many levels, and speaking of sports from hockey to baseball cleveland also getting a blast of snow. the red sox supposed to play their season opener there on monday. well, you can see why the game was postponed. and even if they tried to play in boston, wouldn't be any better there. yep, that's what the field looked like and that's where we find abc's rob marciano in hard-hit boston. good morning to you, rob. look at that snow. >> i know, can you believe it? i mean mother nature obviously not ready for the boys of summer, snow falling here in boston getting about 5 inches, widespread 6 to 9 inches. this street getting help from the sun but forget about spring
7:05 am
cleaning, you're going to need one of these to get out the door and get on the road. overnight, areas that don't have sun like this had some freezing going on so icy conditions around the boston area, especially in the suburbs then, of course, there's the windchill. i want to show you these numbers, this is incredible stuff, linzie talked about it, here right now, 23 degrees but feels like it's 8 because the winds will be howling. new york city, you're no different. 11-degree windchill. buffalo, 12. even outside the snow zone you are feeling this bitter cold air, so dress like it is january when you head out the door. i've got bad news for the northeastern third of the country, below temperatures, it looks like into early next week, possibly beyond that. a much warmer out in the west and happy spring, everybody, mother nature giving us a mild winter but we are working our way to summer very, very slowly. >> all right, rob, that heat, i had to turn back on last night, looks like it will stay on. >> they'll try to play the opener at yankee stadium today. race to the white house now and today's pivotal vote in wisconsin. 42 delegates at stake for the gop. ted cruz hoping to block donald
7:06 am
trump with a win tonight and tom llamas is in milwaukee with the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning. the voting under way here in wisconsin and donald trump hoping a last-minute blitz helps deliver a victory. but some trump aides are telling abc news they believe what the polls are showing that senator ted cruz will win tonight and melania trump opening up on campaign life and how she advises her husband to stay away from those retweets. >> got to get out and vote. >> reporter: this morning, donald trump fighting hard to win in wisconsin. >> and i've been making speeches three today, four yesterday, three or four the other day. we're here constantly. you're going to get so sick of me, you'll say get him the hell out of here. >> reporter: trump pulling out all the stops. for the first time melania trump speaking at length at an event. >> as you may know by now, when you attack him, he will punch back ten times harder. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: mrs. trump there

for support but also to help her husband with female voters after trump stumbled on the issue of abortion. >> no matter who you are, a man or a woman, he treats everyone equal. >> reporter: melania saying the race has taken an ugly turn. her husband criticized for retweeting this image of ted cruz's wife. but melania also attacked for striking this pose as a model. >> when they run a super pac ad attacking you, is that painful? >> i have a tough skin. i think it's not fair that they are attacking family, a wife or children. >> reporter: it's something the cruz family is dealing with, as well. the texas senator answering some very personal questions after a "national enquirer" report cited rumors of marital infidelity. >> have you committed adultery? >> i have not. that attack was complete and utter garbage.
7:08 am
>> not going to be any e-mails or texts or videos -- >> it's completely made up nonsense. it's simply not true. i have always been faithful to my wife. i love my wife. >> reporter: cruz blaming trump for the tabloid story. a smear campaign to stop his momentum in wisconsin where pre-election polls show him beating trump. i asked cruz what a victory today would mean. >> i think the people of wisconsin, they're looking at the records of the candidates and they realize that donald screams and yells a lot but he has no solutions. he has slogans but no solutions. >> reporter: and this morning, for the first time, details on how donald trump would force mexico to pay for that border wall. he's been talking about for months, the washington post reports, if he becomes president, trump will try to cut off the money that mexican immigrants send back to their families in mexico. that would choke the mexican economy. it's unclear if that's even legal and it would definitely fracture the relationship with a key ally and a trading partner. >> all right, thanks for the latest.
7:09 am
now to the democratic side, bernie sanders hoping to keep up the pressure on hillary clinton and take away a victory in wisconsin as clinton turns her focus now to new york and the upcoming race here. abc's cecilia vega is tracking it all for us. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning, amy. hillary clinton's campaign says her delegate lead is nearly insurmountable but they are bracing for a loss in wisconsin. bernie sanders, on the other hand, is on a winning streak and he is hoping to keep it going today. [ cheers and applause ] bernie sanders feeling confident in the final stretch. ♪ this land is your land >> reporter: crisscrossing wisconsin, from milwaukee -- >> this is our last rally before the primary to thank the people of wisconsin for their kindness. >> reporter: -- to green bay. >> if we have a large voter turnout, we can put wisconsin in the ranks of those states who are fighting for a political revolution. >> reporter: this morning, sanders heads into voting in the badger state leading in the polls and taunting his opponent.
7:10 am
>> she's already under a lot of pressure. so, don't tell her this, but i think we win here, we win in new york state and we're on the way to the white house. >> reporter: now, hillary clinton faces a stark reality. overnight, her campaign sent this fund-raising e-mail to supporters saying, we could lose wisconsin. tomorrow's primary is going to be a tough fight. clinton's husband there fighting the fight on her behalf. >> we need wisconsin, go out and work for it. thank you and god bless you. >> god bless you! >> reporter: while she stays behind to campaign at home in new york, a state she cannot afford to lose. >> i adored being your senator. i loved representing new york. >> reporter: well, overnight, both sides finally came to an agreement on holding a debate here in new york. it will be on april 14th but it did not end this bickering.
7:11 am
sanders' team says that he had to cancel a big rally, quote, to accommodate secretary clinton's jam-packed high-dollar coast-to-coast fund-raising, a clinton spokesman, amy, says classy. that's the response. >> very nice, indeed, cecilia, thank you. a lot to talk about obviously. let's send it over to george. i'm here with our political team, matthew dowd and jon karl, both joining us. let's begin with the democrats right there, i talked to hillary clinton about this yesterday. bernie sanders, if it comes in as the polls are suggesting right now, six out of the last seven. she can't put him away. >> it's striking how both front-runners are having a hard time to close the deal. for hillary clinton this would mean a real losing streak going into that big race in new york, her home state. you asked her if she could afford to lose in new york. she said, you know, it's not a must-win state, but i think that would be devastating to see a loss in her backyard in new york to bernie sanders. >> i agree with that. i think it's funny that in the course of this the dominant front-runners are not dominant going into the bleu cheese state
7:12 am
and somebody will be black and blue when they come out of this as they hit that wall. i think what's fascinating about this donald trump keeps dominating the national polls and he doesn't look like he's dropped a lot in wisconsin or nationally. it goes to show you that a heart connection cannot be broken by a head argument. >> to maintain his path to get the nomination and get those 1,237 delegates before the convention, he has to start doing better. >> yeah, donald trump is the front-runner and been the front-runner forever in this race but he's got to do significantly better, in fact, george, if you look at the available pledge delegates left he needs to win nearly 70% of them going forward. so being a front-runner with 35, even 40% of the vote going forward, will not be enough for donald trump to clinch this nomination before the convention and at the convention i think he faces a real uphill battle. >> and matt, trump says if he wins it's all over. if not that chance of a contested convention goes way, way up. >> yeah, the likelihood goes
7:13 am
way, way up. the other interesting thing, ted cruz has less of a chance of passing donald trump than bernie sanders does. bernie sanders has a better chance of passing hillary clinton among pledge delegates than ted cruz does in passing donald trump. >> we will be watching tonight. thank you both. back to amy. >> thank you. and we have some new details about that deadly amtrak crash near philadelphia on sunday. the train hit a backhoe working on the tracks and this morning "the wall street journal" reports moments before the crash, an amtrak supervisor raced into the path of the train trying to warn his colleague on the backhoe to get out of the way but it was too late. both men were killed. the train was traveling 106 miles an hour. that's slightly under the speed limit. investigators are trying to figure out why that work was being done on the tracks at that time. and now to an investigation under way into the deadly helicopter crash killing five people on board a sightseeing tour that happened in tennessee. look at that, the hillside going up in flames, and abc's gio benitez is here with the latest on that. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. it's a sad story. these sightseeing helicopters
7:14 am
take thousands of tourists over the great smoky mountains but this chopper crashed at the foot of a mountain. there's nothing left. this morning, investigators are searching for answers after a sightseeing tour turned deadly. a tower camera capturing the moments after a helicopter with five on board crashed into the tennessee hills monday afternoon. thick, black plumes of smoke appearing almost out of nowhere. authorities believe there are no survivors. >> there's not much left. the helicopter's pretty well consumed in the fire. >> reporter: emergency responders rushing to the scene. the flames from the fire causing an immediate threat to the surrounding area. >> the fire has leapt -- had gone from where the helicopter crashed all the way across the top of the mountain. >> reporter: the owner smoky mountain helicopters, a popular group which offers scenic aerial tours of the nearby mountains. their website advertising tours since 1964. >> it's not the same thing as getting on an airliner to fly across the country. the safety record just is not the same.
7:15 am
you have to do some research and be sure that you're getting on a helicopter that's well maintained. >> reporter: there is no word yet on the cause of the crash. and it turns out sightseeing helicopter tours have been heavy criticized in this area. after several accidents residents have actually asked that the tours be stopped, but this morning we don't know anything about the passengers on board. >> more to come and on the investigation, as well. gio, thanks so much. lara, you have some more uplifting news. >> the bags under the eyes, well deserved for all of us. what a finish in one of the greatest college basketball championship games ever. the buzzer-beating three-pointer that clinches the wildcat their first title in 31 years over north carolina and abc's jesse palmer is here with all the highlights. good morning, jesse. >> good morning, lara. you better believe it, this game was truly an instant classic. two evenly matched teams who looked like they were headed to overtime until kris jenkins' shot seen around the world. you can bet we are going to be
7:16 am
talking about this one for a very long time. >> arcidiacono, three seconds. at midcourt. >> jenkins. >> gives it to jenkins for the championship! phenomenal. the national champions. with jenkins hitting the winner at the buzzer. >> reporter: villanova triumphs over number one ranked unc in a buzzer-beater for the ages. >> how about that? >> reporter: the underdog wildcats, partying like it's 1985, the last time they clinched a national title. >> how good is that? >> reporter: college basketball saved its best game for last. >> they're going to have to do something from the outside now. >> reporter: unc tying it up with just five seconds to go thanks to marcus paige's dramatic three-pointer, but then villanova senior ryan arcidiacono did what he has done all season, taking control, passing the ball to kris jenkins who took the leap of a lifetime.
7:17 am
>> jenkins -- >> gives it to jenkins for the championship! >> reporter: jenkins' own brother nate britt playing for unc in stunned silence. britt's family adopted jenkins after the two became friends playing aau basketball at age 11. after the game jenkins tried to put this magic moment in perspective. >> for our team to make it to this point and pull out the win, you know, for arch and the other four seniors to go out this way, it's a storybook ending. >> reporter: meanwhile, at villanova's campus when jenkins' ball went in the air, this was the reaction. >> jenkins' three to win it. he made it. he made the three for the win. at the buzzer. cats win it all. cats win it all. cats win it all. 31 years later, villanova is the king of college basketball once again! >> cannot get enough of that video and 'nova's win was very unexpected. espn.com says more people in the
7:18 am
espn bracket contest actually picked 'nova to lose in the first round against unc asheville than win the whole thing. >> that makes it all the sweeter. >> i know, as jenkins said, an amazing moment. >> surprising. that's awesome. want to show you once again the team celebration. just what you'd expect. they're going nuts but at the same time, look at coach jay wright. that's his expression while the entire arena is erupting. he says he was in total and utter shock. >> was he even there? >> he's like, did that just happen? >> he looked irritated. >> i know. >> stoic in defeat and -- great leaders. >> that was incredible and kris jenkins will be here live a little bit later. now, let's go back to rob up in boston. >> good morning, again, guys. it's a chilly start to the day. windchills well into the single numbers so the snow is not going to melt any time quickly. tuesday trivia brought to you by

look at syracuse, new york, this morning. so much snow on the ground in april, although the sun is coming up there. there are whiteout conditions from buffalo to boston and that's creating some deadly driving conditions as a bitter blast of cold hits the east right now. and also right now, wisconsin's voting this morning in what could be a crucial contest in the race for the white house. donald trump and hillary clinton bracing for losses as ted cruz and bernie sanders see surging poll numbers. and villanova celebrating a huge win over north carolina, sealing the deal with that buzzer-beater, there it is. classes understandably canceled this morning. a lot of celebrations going on there overnight and the hero of the game is joining us live in just a bit. >> can't wait for that. and what a night on "dancing with the stars." the theme, my most memorable year. take a look at this new memory,
7:31 am
ginger's baby adrian there helping dad cheer mom on. the spotlight may be a little too much for the little guy. >> ben said that he was crying because he was upset that geraldo left. >> emotional night for everybody. >> harper ran up the stairs saying ginger's baby is crying. he's crying. >> oh. >> we're celebrating ginger. she did an awesome job last night. so much more on that coming up. but first, we're going to begin with that surprising scene unfolding on an airplane in houston. a flight attendant now under investigation after united airlines says she intentionally activated the emergency slide. abc's david kerley has the very latest from reagan national airport. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. that flight attendant is grounded this morning and imagine the surprise faces of those passengers inside the terminal with the scene that they saw. it's something you rarely see. a jetliner's evacuation slide being inflated right in front of
7:32 am
you. this video obtained by our houston station kprc. watch again. this was no mistake and this morning united airlines is trying to figure out why one of its flight attendants intentionally deployed the emergency slide after landing in houston. the attendant throwing a bag out the door and jumping down the chute for a quick exit. united telling abc they have removed the flight attendant from her flying duties, calling her behavior unsafe. saying, "we hold all of our employees to the highest standard" and that her behavior "does not represent the more than 20,000 flight attendants who ensure the safety of our customers." the president of the association of flight attendants telling abc news "the crew members remaining on the plane immediately went to work to protect passengers and ensure everyone deplane the aircraft without incident." passengers on the flight say they didn't even realize what was happening because someone else on board was having a medical emergency at the same time. >> i was on the flight and i only found out about the emergency slide being deployed
7:33 am
afterwards on the news, and i was like, wait a second, i was on that plane and i didn't even realize. >> reporter: this isn't the first time a flight attendant has exited a parked plane with flair. remember steven slater's infamous take this job and shove it meltdown. the former jetblue employee frustrated with the passenger grabs two beers before activating the chute and sliding his way to freedom. >> i had it. i was absolutely done at that moment. >> reporter: slater served a year of probation on a misdemeanor charge and paid a restitution to jetblue. but experts say incidents like these are dangerous. slides deploy in seconds and the high pressure with which they hit the pavement can injury the crew on the ground. now, united airlines says that that plane has been inspected but, george and amy, replacing one of those slides is kind of expensive. >> all right. >> i bet she'll have to pay. >> i'm sure she will, david. thank you. we're going to move on now to that explosive case out of vanderbilt university back in the headlines because a football player previously convicted of sexual assault is back in court
7:34 am
after a judge declared a mistrial the first time around. abc's ryan smith with the latest. >> reporter: last year vanderbilt football players cory batey and brandon vandenburg were awaiting sentencing facing dozens of years in prison until that mistrial set them free. >> violated the very principles of human decency. >> reporter: this morning, prosecutors trying for a second time to convict cory batey, one of two former vanderbilt football players freed after their convictions for sexually assaulting a female student were thrown out last summer. >> mr. batey, he's all in it. he's the first one, within a minute of entering that room mr. batey starts assaulting. >> reporter: prosecutors charging the 22-year-old batey and the 22-year-old former teammate brandon vandenburg with aggravated rape alleging the two men, seen here in this surveillance video from june of
7:35 am
2013 along with two others, brought the unconscious victim to vandenburg's dorm room after a night of heavy drinking, sexually assaulting her while snapping pictures and recording video with their cell phones. >> i was horrified. i didn't know what had happened to the young lady and the pictures and i immediately deleted them. >> reporter: vandenburg and batey tried together last year. a jury taking just three hours to convict them. >> we, the jury, find the defendant cory batey guilty of aggravated rape. >> reporter: batey told dr. phil after the trial his actions devastated his mother. but six months after their convictions, a tennessee judge abruptly declared a mistrial after learning the jury foreman failed to reveal he was a victim of sexual assault years earlier. both men again pleading not guilty. and now this new jury in batey's case sequestered for the duration of the trial will see much of the same evidence including photos and video of the alleged incident recovered
7:36 am
from the phone of vandenburg's friend and blaming his conduct on the booze as in the first trial. >> we know that college is also a time we make some mistakes. >> reporter: batey now has an infant son bringing him to court. vandenburg is being tried separately in june because one of his lawyers has a medical issue. and two others pleading not guilty with no trial date set. if convicted on all counts they face decades in prison. >> okay, ryan, let's talk about this now with dan abrams. and, dan, cory batey already convicted once. that's not supposed to matter. >> it's not and in theory this should be a clean slate. but let's be clear about one thing -- this was a huge win for him and vandenburg. the fact they're getting new trials based on the fact one of the jurors failed to disclose something in jury selection, huge win they get a new chance here. the key thing that could be used against him in this case is his own testimony from the first case, could very likely be used against him in this case. >> yeah, he didn't put up much of a defense last time. >> no, his defense was basically
7:37 am
there is a culture out there in college and, you know, i'm sorry this happened. i was so drunk. it seems this time, though, because he's being tried separately he's pointing the finger at his co-defendants, basically saying they were egging me on. they were the ones trying to get me to do this and i was so drunk that i hardly remember it. that's a slightly different defense than we saw the first time. of course, the downside for him in being tried by himself is that prosecutors can now introduce evidence against just him. remember, in the first trial if there are two people you can't introduce evidence just against one of them. here, the prosecutors can do that. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. all right, coming up next here, golf's biggest tournament teeing off without tiger. why he is sitting this round out. the big question, is he headed for retirement? and american eagle is now under fire after revealing this campaign was a joke. got their response this morning.

7:50 am
american eagle campaign was put said this was part of an april fools' hoax and they thought they were making fun of the guys in the ad. >> reporter: but some didn't find it funny and questioned why positive male body imaging needs to be a joke and people took to social media and one tweeted male body acceptance is no laughing matter especially because the issue already has little visibility. your "joke" diluted it further. another, so apparently the aerie man campaign was a parody. sorry, aerie, but i'm missing the part where it was funny. one of the models in that ad says he wasn't trying to fool anyone and says "i was 100% real in that campaign." >> the selfie stick behind the legs gave that away. >> and perky on the -- >> again, they say that -- you have to know this was a joke. there is a brother in a tub blowing bubbles with a hat on. i mean -- and you took it seriously? but, hey. we'll be right back on that note.

bigger bang" in 2005. that was the name of their album then and now comes "the aftermath." ronnie wood, the band's by guitarist revealing they're on the way and spent a few days in the studio recording and this time around they have tapped into their blues roots recording 11 loose covers mixed in with brand-new material and wood telling the ap, we can hear them as early as this year proving that sometimes you can always get what you want. >> nice. >> puns? no, that's not a record. wait till pop 3. also in "pop news" this morning, "american idol" winner kelly clarkson made a hit out of "heartbeat song." but the show is flatlining according to simon powell. it will end sunday. cowell says in his opinion the show lost its mojo when paula abdul and he left. that was in 2009 and 2010 respectively, and the ratings don't dispel that opinion.
8:24 am
at its peak "idol" drew an average of 36 million viewers. this season it's averaged around 8 million. nice to see that simon's insults don't stop just because he's left the show. and then finally, a nasty neighbor dispute you would be nuts to mess with. these pictures tell the story. take a look. a stalking squirrel who will not rest until he gets revenge. the guy who captured -- there he is again -- the evidence of mental warfare admits he shined a light at the little nut to shoo him away and it backfired in a big way. now the gray ghost is haunting him peering at him through windows leading the man to admit he is afraid to go outside of his house. there he is again. there is a lot of gray area over who is right and wrong. we really can't make heads or tail, bushy tails of it. we just hope these two figure it out soon because we don't have a corny pun left to say about this. >> here's johnny. >> i was counting. she had five or six. >> yeah, i've done better but i

>> the whole audience is sharks. >> i feel like this was a "gma" segment like two years ago so great idea, guys. for now though let's go over to amy. we have our snack rescue series this morning. we are talking about a staple in so many kids' lunch boxes, those fruit chews. they often say they're made with real fruit. how do they compare to real fruit? our becky worley is back to explain. uh-oh. i have a feeling i know what you'll tell me. >> parents are always trying to find healthy snacks that kids will actually eat. so super sweet fruity gummies that come in a bag. what's not to love? well, sugar. successful parenting often comes down to -- >> i'm hungry. >> reporter: -- having snacks at crucial moments. so little bags of goodies that don't need to be refrigerated and promise 100% rda of vitamin c and real fruit, they're a godsend except says
8:32 am
nutritionist maya feller when she says how much sugar they have. >> 10 grams, 12 grams, 15 grams. >> 15 grams of sugar. the world health organization advises just 15 grams of added sugar in a whole day for kids. that's the sugar content in this one packet of target market pantry chews. the thing that gets me, there are only like, hmm, eight or nine of these gummies in here, so when i give them to my kids they say, i want two packs. >> exactly. then all of a sudden they've had 30 grams of sugar. that's very similar to giving them an entire packet of starburst which is an actual candy around 33 grams of sugar. >> reporter: and sure enough the first four ingredients are similar. >> corn syrup, sugar, fruit juice concentrate and hydrogenated oil. this is so confusing when you go to the grocery store and it says organic. we've all been told that organic is better, but not when you're starting with sugar and not when it's the same as candy. >> reporter: target says they're

currently phasing out the market pantry fruit flavored snack packages with a serving size of 26 grams and annie's says they are certified organic and don't contain artificial flavors, synthetic colors or high fructose corn syrup. horizon says their brand is also organic free of artificial colors or preservatives telling us they add natural flavors in the fruit snacks. the other brands we mentioned declined to comment. >> all right, becky is joining us now with more, so we know about the high sugar content but what about like the vitamins, vitamin c that these snacks tout. >> they are definitely saying that's something you should get but guess what, it's not that hard. three or four strawberries, boom, your kids got their rda of vitamin c. a quarter of an orange. >> a quarter of an orange? >> if your kids eat any fruit they're probably getting their vitamin c. >> they're getting enough vitamin c, so you don't need the chews for that. what about that whole shelf life thing where it's like you can keep it in the cupboard and throw it in your purse. you don't have to worry about it. >> as a parent you've got to have stuff on hand at all times to prevent looming meltdowns with energy crisis of blood
8:34 am
sugar dropping, so we all know this. but the good stuff, dried fruit. get your kids to eat it. get the unsweetened kind. this is a godsend. these are freeze dried fruits and they sell these now at costco. the only ingredient is fruit, sometimes citric acid but no added sugar and these things will live forever in your car no matter the temperature. >> good. >> and tangerines. sailors went around the globe with these things. throw them in your purse. they'll last a month. throw them in the car. >> they'll last a month in your purse, really? >> i've road tested this, amy, i'm telling you and they come in handy. >> all right. so we've been talking about sugars. what about clamping down on fats and oils in our kids' snacks as well? >> well, here's the thing. that's important for us as adults, but for kids, they need those fats. so trail mix is really great if you can get your kids going on it. of course, you know, they're going to want the ones -- >> with the m&ms in it. >> which is okay. >> the ones i want too.
8:35 am
>> savory is good too. >> thank you very much, becky. we appreciate it. george, over to you. >> thank you, guys. now we'll look ahead to tonight's finale of "american crime story: the people v. o.j. simpson," you know, that sarah paulson stars as marcia clark and as lara said, she embodies marcia clark and she sits down with deborah roberts to talk about it. >> the truth came out. toughen up, cochran. this is a smoker's lounge. day care is on the first floor. >> wow. sizzle. she's tough. >> she is a toughie. she is. >> did you change your feeling or your thinking about marcia clark in any way? >> you know, i did. i really had a very particular that i think most americans had which is she was a strident, aggressive [ bleep ] for lack of an articulate way of putting it
8:36 am
and the scripts themselves. i came to realize that was so, so far from the truth. >> get back to work. >> you had a chance to meet her. you met her later on in the filmmaking. >> we were practically done when i met her. it was an incredibly painful time in her life to have it all brought back up and in some form of entertainment. i think it was probably really scary for her and i felt very protective. >> did she apologize for the hair? >> she did. when she sat down she said, i just want to say sorry for the hair. i thought i'll take it. >> because you had to wear that wig. >> i wore four different wigs and were all varying versions of not very attractive. >> you say that you have not actually watched the series along with everybody else. >> no. >> but people are riveted. why do you think this is touching such a button? >> gosh, i think everyone was so obsessed during the trial. i don't know why it would be different now. >> what do you hope people will come away from the o.j. simpson series with because you don't really make a judgment about guilt or innocence.
8:37 am
>> no. yeah, it's not really about that. what i hope they come away with is twofold, one that at the center of the story is the death of two innocent people and the circus this trial became really made that hard to see clearly but more than that or equal to that, you know, every player involved in this trial was a real person, a flesh and blood thinking, feeling person and so many of them were sort of treated almost like they were holograms like they weren't real people. didn't think about what johnnie cochran's personal struggles were or marcia clark's struggles were and all of that was left out of the story, and i hope what you're able to see we're talking about real people whose lives were forever changed and most not for the better post this trial so i hope that's something people take away. >> and the story gripping so many more than 20 years later. "american crime story: the people v. o.j. simpson" airs tonight on fx. now let's go back to rob in boston. >> hey, george, so weird to have this much snow and the sun be this strong.

♪ time t we are back now with award-winning actress and "new york times" best-selling author and friend of "gma." cameron diaz. she's just written "the longevity book" encouraging women to embrace their age and look forward to life's many phases. i love calling them phases. >> they are phases. >> nice to see you. >> good to see you. thank you. >> when last we saw you, you were right here with a wonderful group of women. >> yes. >> talking about your body. your body book, and it was such a great, smart conversation, so now you get into aging. what inspired you to write the book? >> well, i think that, you know, as we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and i was -- i was entering the phase of 40, and i started getting a lot of questions about, was i scared to turn 40, are you afraid to turn 40? >> heck no.
8:44 am
>> and i started asking, why is everybody -- why should i be afraid? >> it beats the alternative. >> that's what i say. there's only one thing happening if you're not aging and it ain't so fun. it's like if you're alive, for me what i learned is that aging is really about living. you know, and so i feel very grateful that i actually get to turn another year older because not everybody does, not everybody gets to grow old, and i realize that people were worried or they were afraid of aging because they just didn't understand it, and i was like, what is aging? you know, i don't even understand what it is. so i called up my writing partner sondra bark and said i have our next book. we're going to write about what happens to us on a cellular level as we age. so cellular biology. she said, okay, perfect. we got this one. >> you really did your homework. >> yeah. >> in reading the research, i was so impressed and you traveled and did a lot of interviews and put on the journalism hat. >> there's no secret to aging well.
8:45 am
it's actually -- there is a basic way of doing it, and it's called -- it is, again, it's living, and it's how well you live. you know, how well you take care of yourself. there's five pillars of well-being. it's good nutrition, good movement of the body, good night's sleep, which rest -- stress release, i know, stress release and meaningful, connected, loving relationships, those are the five pillars of well-being. that's just living every day. we all get up, eat, move our bodies, sleep at night. we try to release stress in some way during the day, and we try to be around the people that we love. >> yeah. >> and if we can learn what that -- the first book, "body book" was about taking care of your body. but how do you take care of your body if you don't know what's good and bad. how do you good for your body if you don't know what good is. >> now we do. >> so, this is the same thing with aging. how do you age well if you don't understand what that is so you have to inform yourself and really what this book is for is
8:46 am
to help women take responsibility for their body, how they -- to look forward. aging is a decline. naturally that is what it is. it is a decline. and if you don't get ahead of that, if you don't know how -- what to expect and how to make sure that you get ahead of it then what happens is that you become sickly and old and broken instead of being full of life until the end of it. >> we are surrounded by beautiful and we're all aging women here. >> yes. >> we have a couple who wanted to say something. bettyanne menza who is 54 says right now she is not feeling her best. tell us what you're feeling. >> yes, i definitely feel my age. i do go out with my kids that are in their 20s, and i have fun with them, and i have great parties at my house, but i definitely see myself gaining weight and getting wrinkles, but i try to exercise more and eating well. >> you know, the thing -- one of the research, parts of the research that was really, really i thought was very interesting is that people who accept aging actually age better. you actually put up to six years
8:47 am
more on to your life once you accept that you are aging. >> good. we can all do that, right? >> it's a way of once you embrace something, it's a mind-set, right, so the body follows the behind in anything. >> totally makes sense. >> so if you are accepting of it and people who were -- learn you could actually age well. a lot of people are afraid of aging so they're scared of it and don't do it well. if you know that you can do it well and you learn how to do it and all those things are important, then you can keep moving forward with a better mind-set and healthier body. >> monica is right there. you're about to turn 60. how are you feeling? >> i am. isn't this crazy? >> oh, yeah. >> somebody is owning it. >> i am owning it. i'm totally owning it, and i feel better than i ever did and, cameron, you're right. it's all about those five pillars and i'm doing exactly that. i'm embracing age. i'm going through menopause right now and i don't have any of the symptoms that most women go through because i believe our
8:48 am
issues are in our tissues, and if you know how to release your emotions, good, bad or indifferent, we can really feel the feelings and then just let them go. >> monica, you should write a book. >> i did. i did. it's called "how may i serve" actually. >> thank you for serving us with a great positive attitude. >> thank you for inviting me here to share my experience. >> it's great to meet you. >> again, research shows that women going through menopause once they accept it, and they're not afraid of the symptoms, and that's another thing, knowing what the symptoms are, that they're coming at you helps you to deal with them better when they come, and the women who accepted it and didn't stress about it as much went through less and shorter menopause symptoms. >> great tips. this book is fantastic. thank you for coming back. >> thank you so much. so good to see you. thank you. >> i'll keep you not afraid. you keep me not afraid. >> all right. >> were talking about it ladies. >> absolutely.
