kid rock's nightmare. he finds his assistant dead on his property panic and frustration as he tries to call for help. >> send the ambulance now. >> the new 911 call raising big questions this morning. could help have come sooner? ♪ who let the dogs out the dog causing a big delay sprinting onto the field during a game running, leaping, even licking players. who let this dog out? who let this dog out? ♪ who let the dogs out and good morning, america. happy wednesday. that dog just wanted to have a little fun. >> yeah, exactly. >> at least the dog was very nice. >> he was very nice. and he's fast too. robin is on assignment. we're coming off a big night in the race for the white house. >> that's right. on the democratic side hillary clinton winning all but one primary raising big questions about how much longer bernie sanders will stay in the race and then on the republican side, donald trump sweeping all five primaries with significant wins
over ted cruz and john kasich. >> now, cruz is expected to make a big announcement today, a lot of buzz that he could be naming carly fiorina as a running mate. donald trump's going to join us live to talk about that and his big wins but first abc tom llamas is at trump headquarters with all the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: geo good morning to you. trump now so confident he's calling on senator ted cruz and governor john kasich to get out of the race. he says they have no path. he's also unleashing on hillary clinton and just last night right here in trump tower i asked him about a possible running mate. >> i consider myself the presumptive nominee. >> reporter: fresh off a sweeping northeast victory, five for five, donald trump predicting his victory streak will run through november. describing hillary clinton as a flawed candidate. >> well, i think the only card she has is the woman's card. she's got nothing else going and, frankly, if hillary clinton
were a man, i don't think she'd get 5% of the vote. >> reporter: but if trump makes it to the general election, he likely will be dealing with more than just the democrats. a judge ruling the new york attorney general's fraud case against trump university will be heard before a jury. are you worried at all that you could possibly be running for president in november and also standing trial for trump university? >> no, that's a civil case. very simple. i'm going to win that case very easily. >> reporter: senator ted cruz betting big on indiana next week hoping to capitalize on trump's troubles and against the billion values. >> you know, donald trump loves to style himself an outsider and, listen, when it comes to human decency, when it comes to politeness, when it comes to respect, he's right. >> reporter: cruz maintaining indiana is not a make or break state. the campaign insisting they're going all the way to the convention and with a running mate. >> senator cruz announced he's come up with a short list of potential running mates and started the vetting process. >> he's wasting his time, tom.
listen, running mate. >> reporter: would governor christie be on your list. >> well, i think he's fantastic. i think chris christie is fantastic. thank you. >> reporter: and we have been seeing more of governor christie here at trump tower so we'll have to wait and see. another moment from last night going viral. we mentioned senator ted cruz in indiana. he's been comparing his campaign to that fictional basketball team from the movie "hoosiers" which takes place in indiana. last night he tried to make a point and tried to show symbolism and had his body man measure the hoop at a stadium, the problem is he didn't refer to it as a basketball hoop, he referred to it as a very formal basketball ring, social media exploding ripping him for calling it a basketball ring and the more or less formal hoop. >> tom llamas, thanks so much. to the democratic side and hillary clinton getting closer to clinching that nomination
winning four of five primaries overnight. abc's cecilia vega has the very latest on where the democratic race now stands. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. four more states in her corner. that puts hillary clinton well on her way to winning her party's nomination. if her victory speech overnight is any indication she is gearing up for a showdown with donald trump. ♪ eye of the tiger >> reporter: hillary clinton overnight in the land of "rocky" taking the stage to his song. >> thank you, pennsylvania. [ cheers and applause ] what a great night. >> reporter: delivering bernie sanders a near knockout. >> whether you support senator sanders or you support me, there's much more that unites us than divides us. >> reporter: clinton throwing punches across the aisle too. >> we're going to imagine a tomorrow where hard work is honored, families are supported and where love trumps hate.
>> reporter: setting her sights on the general election. >> so, my friends, if you are a democrat, an independent or a thoughtful republican, you know their approach is not going to build an america where we increase opportunity or decrease inequality. >> reporter: and playing all the cards. >> mr. trump accused me of playing the, quote, woman card. [ booing ] >> well, if fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in. >> reporter: those four big wins put clinton closer to locking in the nomination once and for all while sanders is single rhode island victory still leaves him lagging in delegates but he is going down swinging. >> this campaign is not just about electing a president, it
is about transforming our nation. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: and vowing to stay in the fight. >> with your help we're going to win here in west virginia. >> reporter: not just west virginia, sanders says that they will stay in this fight through california's primary in june but we are seeing a tale of two very different campaigns played out right now. clinton's advisers say they are winding down their primary fight and ready for a general election. >> and jon karl is going to show us the delegate map that shows why that is the case. to him right now. jon, starting with the democrats almost impossible now for bernie sanders to catch up to hillary clinton. >> it sure is, george. hillary clinton had a big night, four out of five states but, of course, it's all about delegates. hillary clinton won 194 delegates last night, bernie sanders, 129. that means she is getting very close to where she needs to be to win, in fact, sanders would need to get 91% of the remaining delegates to clinch. >> and how about the republicans, donald trump? >> big, huge night for donald
trump. by our count 105 delegates won. that's more than that. pennsylvania 54 ran under their own names. our team is interviewing them based on that. we project donald trump won 131 delegates last night. that brings his total much closer to where he needs to be, the 1,237. in fact, he needs to get about 47% of those remaining to clinch. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. let's talk to donald trump right now. he joins us by phone. mr. trump congratulations on the win. it looks like you won every county, every congressional district. the exit polls show 25% of the party say they won't vote for you in a general election. i know you believe you're the nominee right now. how do you win that 25% over. >> i think they will come over, george, as soon as they get in line, right now they're backing other candidates and they're backing somebody else, but they're going to come over.
i've watched it all my life. i mean, they are angry, they're confused and they don't know how this is all happening and then all of a sudden it becomes love. it turns -- anger turns into love. i've seen it many, many times politically and in other parts of life and that's the way it is. >> you are getting a lot of buzz about those comments you made about hillary clinton. if hillary were a man i don't think she'd get 5% of the vote. what did you mean by that? it struck a lot of your critics as sexist. >> it's not sexist. it's true. just very, very true statement. if she were a man she'd get 5%. >> 600,000 votes. she's gotten 12 million votes. >> she is a flawed candidate. she is a candidate that, frankly, is i think -- she's not going to do very well in the election and i look forward to showing that and, frankly, you just look at her votes. you look at her -- even bernie sanders said she has bad judgment. i mean, bernie sanders himself said she has bad judgment. that's a big statement to make. that's a statement worse than many of the statements i've made against people i'm running against. >> you heard her response.
she said she wants to be dealt in on that woman card charge and said she wants -- she's for women's health, equal pay for women and paid family leave. where do you stand on those issues? >> women don't like hillary and i did well with the women. the women gave me great marks and a great percentage but women do not like hillary clinton. that's been a known fact for a long time and she's going out there playing the women's card. in fact, she gets up and says, i'm a woman, that's what separates me so she has every right to be attacked on that front. she gets up and all she's saying is i'm a woman, i'm a woman and she didn't play that card too much with obama, probably made a mistake not doing it but she's playing it against us. >> you know that most polls show she does better in a national election with women than you do. >> that's okay. i mean, i haven't started on her yet. you know, polls showed that jeb bush did better than me and he failed an polls showed all these people i played, that i did, that i won against, 17 groups, that many of them did better
than me and by the end i was much better than them and they left the race one by one. now i have hillary is going to be the next one and i look forward to taking her on. i think she'll be much easier than many of the governors and senators i knocked out. >> ted cruz still fighting even though you believe you're the nominee and you've heard that buzz he could be naming carly fiorina as his running mate as early as today. does that worry you at all. >> i think it would be a bad choice. i mean carly did not resonate. not because she's a woman, but carly did not resonate at all with people. she had one good -- one good debate, not against me, she had the debate on the other stage, if you'll remember, remember we had so many -- we had so many candidates ahead of us on that stage but she had the one good debate she went up then she dropped like a rock and never resonated with the people so i mean carly is not going to do the trick. i like carly, nice person but she never resonated. she didn't do well. she went -- she was very low in
the polls and by the end she was an insignificant player, so if you want to bring carly back, that's okay. but it's not the right person. he's too early to do it and, frankly, he's wasting his time because he won't be the nominee. i have millions of votes more than him. 3 million more. i have millions of votes more than him. i have hundreds of delegates more than him. he came in third in four of the races last night. he didn't come in second. he came in third. it's over for ted. now, what are you going to did? he goes around on the weekends and buys up all the second round delegates. he buys them, you know, takes them out for hamburgers, takes them out for cake. he takes them out to hotel rooms. they ride him around town. he takes them sightseeing. >> i have to get one more question in. let me get one more. you're giving a major -- >> i'm not focused on that. i'm focused on the first round. >> you're giving a major foreign
policy speech today. how do you convince people they can trust you with the nuclear codes? >> well, because i'm probably the last on the trigger. you know i was against the war in iraq. other people were for it. hillary clinton was for it. >> you were for it though before you were against it. >> no, i wasn't. i was never for it. i was against it. before it ever started i was against it. and i was against it from before 2004. i was against the war in iraq. and i was against it for years and bush used to hate me for being so against it and they sent people to the white house to try and convince me and all i'd say is it destabilized -- it will destabilize the middle east and iran will take over the middle east and that's exactly what happened and we have isis to top so they made a horrible decision, but hillary clinton voted for it and by the way, they did not knock down the world trade center, okay, just so we get that straight. iraq did not knock down the world trade center which is in theory why we went in there and went after them. >> donald trump, thank you for joining us this morning. >> okay, george. thank you very much. >> and from politics, george, to our other big story, that severe weather outbreak overnight continuing this morning. take a look at the lightning strikes in houston, just moments
ago, and then massive storms in the heartland unleashing blinding rain, hail. even tornadoes, rob marciano is at the center of the outbreak in oklahoma city for us this morning. good morning, rob. >> good morning, amy. it was a dangerous day are the east coast to the plains. oklahoma city in the hearts of this severe weather event. the weather severe enough to take down trees and power lines. it was intense and for some it was frightening. overnight, tornadic storms in texas. >> there it is. >> reporter: as lightning lights up the sky you can see a huge funnel cloud hovering over a field. tractor trailers flipped on their sides. cars wrecking after a reported tornado crosses highway 75. lightning striking this apartment complex. electrical wires damaged and sparking. and this spectacular image over dallas. in oklahoma, blinding rain,
sirens ringing out. winds up to 70 miles per hour. and we were right in the middle of it. daytime hail right now. hail pounding those of us on the roads. >> oh, man. >> lightning illuminating the skies all around us. you see the leading edge of it, a lot of lightning around, certainly some wind. this is a severe one, for sure. several reports of tornadoes. and this morning officials still assessing all the damage. in kansas, warning sirens blaring. >> where is the safest place to be? >> in the freezer. >> reporter: restaurant employees taking shelter. more treacherous driving conditions. visibility so poor people pulling over taking shelter at gas stations. for as pumped up as the atmosphere was this could have been worse.
still thousands without power and there's a lot of cleanup before the crews can get the lights turned back on. george. >> i'll say. rob, thanks very much. to ginger with the latest on where these storms are headed. >> it's happening at this hour in parts of texas and louisiana. that same cold front that dropped all the severe weather as of yesterday blowing through from shreveport to lake charles already this morning through houston, reports close to 60 miles per hour of damaging wind and that's going to be the issue today. the tornado threat is slightly lower but it doesn't mean you can't see major damage, power outages in this region anywhere from southern iowa right down through parts of illinois, western tennessee, mississippi, down along the gulf and back into parts of arkansas too. large hail is the second threat. tornadoes still a possibility but i think that threat for general thunderstorms reaches all the way to west virginia and virginia and i'll have much more coming up on that, amy, in just a couple of minutes. now to a big headline overseas. the key suspect in the paris terror attacks has been handed over to authorities in france. salah abdeslam was captured in
belgium last month after four months on the run. he is accused of providing logistical support for the attacks. his lawyers say abdeslam is, quote, falling apart and is now ready to explain his role in the attacks and how he became radicalized. once he is formally charged he will be held in solitary confinement in a jail near paris. and now michael is here with an unusual sight in the skies over southern california. but not unexplained? >> they're explained now. we got it. we got two pictures i want to share. we have an explanation for the mysterious green streak of light seen near l.a. last night. here it is. >> ooh. >> scientists say that is probably a piece of space junk. likely an object that was in orbit, it it burned up on its way back into the atmosphere. it came crashing down to mother earth here. >> either that or the green hornet. >> i'll stick with the space debris, george. i'm not sticking with the green hornet but a lot took to social media and said, wow, you see this fireball but for no reason
to worry. we're told space debris burning up in the atmosphere it's pretty common. >> not really. >> as long as it burns. >> not here. in l.a. everything is common but something not so common, there's a dog that got loose on the field. delaying a soccer game but this just wasn't any dog but a really happy doing jumping up on the players. daring them to play with him. like, come here, play with me. even hanging out with the goalie during the match in venezuela and it wasn't easy but one player finally got the dog and on the way out -- >> covered him with kiss. >> trying to lick him. loving every minute. >> the dog was fined for excessive licking, though. >> disruption of the game. excessive licking. >> it was an adorable disruption. back to ginger right now. that's winter behind. >> that is winter that happened in maine almost 5 inches of know there in pars of new england and new hampshire too and it's cold there.

people all over the world mourning the loss of the singer. over 2.3 million of his songs bought as his estate hangs in limbo. new details over the possible future of prince's estate. abc news obtaining court documents filed by his only surviving full blood relative sister tyka nelson officially asking a judge tuesday to appoint a trust company to handle her brother's estate. >> he loved each and every one of you. >> reporter: the 55-year-old stating in court documents she does not believe that prince had a will and according to minnesota law if he didn't because he has no surviving parents or children his estate believed to be worth around $300 million would be split equally among tyka and his five surviving half siblings, however, his estate stands to make a significant profit going forward with four of his albums currently sitting atop the itunes top five chart, he is predicted to join the ranks of elvis presley and michael jackson who made billions posthumously.
>> it seems to me it depends so much on what battles ensue. it could be years. >> reporter: and it's not just those classic hits that could bring in big money. prince's much talked about secret vault which is believed to have enough unreleased music to release one album a year for the next 100 years might not only have his voice on those songs. >> d'angelo, patti labelle. angie stone. going to the studio for hours. >> reporter: kim, the woman responsible for his ever changing 'do said she is still in shock. >> he loved us and we loved him back. that's why i tell god if you never do another thing for me, you have already done enough. it was beautiful. >> reporter: prince's former band, the revolution announcing they will be reuniting. playing shows in the singer's honor. no word on when or where they will perform. >> okay, eva, thanks very much. let's talk about this with our chief legal analyst, dan abrams. it's so hard to believe there might not be a will. assume it's correct. what does it mean?
>> you want to make sure there isn't a will, right, because there could be a trust somewhere that gives an indication of what he was thinking. he went through a lot of lawyers and managers over time. there might still be a will out there. but if there isn't a will, then it's likely going to be divided amongst the siblings equally. half siblings and full siblings get equal access but the first thing a probate court is going to have to do appoint an executer, again, we're not just talking about money in the past as eva laid out we're also talking about millions and millions of dollars moving forward. >> here's the question. because of that secret vault of songs but if he left no instructions is it okay to publish those songs. >> that's going to be the decision someone will have to make and, look, that's his fault. i mean, i hate to blame him after the fact but if he had strong feelings about what should happen to those songs after his death, he had to have written it down. look, this is a reminder to everyone, if you have 300 to
$500 million or $3,000 to $5,000 you have to write a will. otherwise, you're going to create a mess for your family. they're going to be fights after the fact and no one is going to know what you want. >> this is years of lawsuits ahead. >> it could be. it could be, yeah. you hope it's not. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. >> all right, thank you. now to a chilling 911 call. a police force veteran confessing to a dispatcher that he shot his wife to death. the victim's sons now speaking out saying they're relieved their father is going behind bars. abc's ryan smith has more. >> what can i help you with? >> i just shot and killed my wife. >> reporter: it's the chilling 911 call from 57-year-old jeff hawkins monday afternoon. >> you said you just shot and killed your wife? >> yes. >> reporter: hawkins a 12-year veteran of the chicago police force displaying little emotion as he calmly tells the dispatcher he killed his wife, jo ann hawkins. >> are you still armed with a knife or with a gun? >> it's on the sink.
i'm not a threat to anybody. i am a former police officer. i am not sure what happened. >> reporter: is she still breathing or conscious and able to talk? >> no. >> reporter: finally breaking down when the dispatcher asks him to describe exactly what happened. >> i came home. she was here. she just wouldn't talk to me and she kept saying talk to my lawyer and i don't know. it just happened. i never wanted to do anything. >> try and stay calm for me, jeff. >> i know. i'm all right. i mean i'm not all right. god, god forgive me. >> reporter: he surrendered peacefully and booked on one count of murder. appearing in court tuesday where bond was set at $3 million. the victim's sons relieved he will remain behind bars for now. >> we've been scared. i mean in the past. off and on relationship with my mom for a long time because of him and this is --
>> we know his capabilities. >> we know what he's capable of. >> reporter: hawkins has not yet entered a plea. his attorney asking for the public to see the facts before jumping to a conclusion. now, strangely enough this wasn't the first time hawkins called 911. two days earlier he called saying he was out of town and noticed money was missing from the family account and asked police to see if something happened to his wife. if convicted he faces 15 years to life in prison, george and amy. >> okay. ryan, thanks very much. coming up here kid rock's panicked 911 call after discovering his assistant dead on his property. could help have come sooner? >> later this morning the ufc is on "gma" sharing their secrets to staying in shape. wait till you see what happens when jesse and i try out their moves. yeah, jesse is on the ground. just note that, please. we know designer when we see it. like the designer smile. it's bolder, brighter and our blogs are buzzing about it. it's the new must-have look. the designer smile by colgate.

>> guys, time now for our series "maybe baby?" and a new hope for those trying to start a family. so many struggling not just to get pregnant but also to cover all costs associated with it and some are returning to crowdfunding and seeing huge success. abc's rebecca jarvis is here with more on that story. good morning, rebecca. >> good morning. amy, it's pretty incredible. according to the cdc, one in eight couples are facing infertility, but a single cycle of ivf can cost as much as $15,000 and while some insurers do cover a portion of the cost, many do not, so people are getting creative. after four years of disappointment, ben and kate lundqvist's best chance of growing their family was in vitro fertilization. >> we were looking at $17,000 total all out of pocket. >> reporter: required to pay the full amount up front, ben, a full time student, and kate, an executive assistant, were going to be stretched thin. so they turned to a growing option for many looking for help paying for medical costs. crowdfunding.
>> we're hoping to do ivf. >> reporter: they posted a fund-raising campaign on youcaring.com to spread the word to friends and family who may want to contribute. >> i really felt that if we didn't kind of ask others for help that we would not have the opportunity to have kids. >> reporter: youcaring.com which says 50% of its fund-raising campaigns are dedicated to medical needs has seen the number of fertility-related campaigns grow steadily. gofundme.com says at least 1,700 ivf campaigns have raised over $3 million so far. but no matter how you're planning to pay, experts say advancements in science have helped the bottom line. >> far less spending is done today in certain cases than was done years ago because we can achieve pregnancy with fewer cycles. >> reporter: in just three months kate and ben raised $4,100 from 33 people, mostly friends and family. at 38 kate says it allowed them
to put "operation baby" into action quickly and keep them from maxing out their credit cards. in march, ben and kate found out they're having twins, and the fund-raising campaign provided something else. >> it motivated us to keep going and to realize people actually supported us and trusted us to have these children. >> congratulations to ben and kate and rebecca and abc news chief women's health correspondent dr. jen ashton are here now with more. we know it's expensive. most insurance companies do not cover all of the costs, so how do the costs break down? why does it cost $15,000? >> okay, so let's itemize the bill. relative costs so they can vary a little. but first the in vitro fertilization drugs cost about $5,000, then you go through a process known as stimulation where we're injecting more drugs and monitoring with ultrasounds, that's about 2,500. the retrieval procedure done in an operating room with anesthesia about 2,000. the lab fees for ivf about 4,500
and then the embryo transfer another grand. that brings us to about 15,000 per cycle, and many women, many couples need multiple cycles. >> i know we see the numbers broken down but like so many medical procedures why are they so expensive? >> well, listen, that's the question. in this country all medical care is expensive. we know that in other parts of the world. this is often covered by insurance but we have to remember this is a subspecialty of ob/gyn. there are not that many infertility doctors and when you go into the lab there are not that many embryologists. this is done by hand. you're injecting a sperm into an egg in a lab setting. that adds up. for comparison if you have a hip surgery and paid out of pocket you could be paying 35,000 to 55,000 for that. >> so, rebecca, are there alternatives for couples? >> i think this is what is so important for couples to know about. there are resources beyond just crowdfunding. those infertility treatments, you should talk to your doctor, doctors like jennifer ashton have the information for you. there are provider discounts.
if you're in the military, if you're a teacher or firefighter, police, there are discounts for families like that. the pharmaceutical companies even offer discounts for some of their treatments and refunds and there are grant programs out there for those who are really in need who want to have a child. >> i did not know that. >> baby quest is one of the programs. it's a phenomenal program. >> that's really interesting. dr. ashton, how does ivf compare to other methods of trying to become pregnant? >> and that's important because it's all under the category of assisted reproduction so take the numbers we just went through and then, let's say, if you need to use a donor egg, that will tack on $20,000 bringing you to about $35,000 per cycle. if you need to have a uterine surrogate, which is legal in this country, add another 65,000. that could bring you up to $100,000 per cycle, per pregnancy, per baby, that adds up. >> for those of us who have kids, rebecca, you know the costs don't end at pregnancy. >> exactly. they only go up from there, unfortunately, and right now
raising a child until the age of 18 costs about $250,000. that's before college, before tuition. >> before college. >> before all those things so it's important to think about the fact as you're spending for pregnancy, think about what happens after pregnancy, how you want to raise your child. >> it's a lifetime of expenses, people. that doesn't end at 18. thank you so much. >> ginger. >> yes, i'm looking forward to it. the brand-new information this morning and brand-new pictures out of houston, texas, all that severe weather blowing through, at this hour you can see that tree into a home there. the damaging wind is still moving through parts of east texas and louisiana. even some tornado warnings popping up. that area going to see this damaging wind possibility through about noon today so keep your eye out. if you can delay some of the driving, especially if it's happening right there, give it an hour. the storms pass. so much better afterward. still have that severe threat

popularity, lara, is skyrocketing, especially among women. according to the ufc, they have more than 10 million female fans in the united states alone. >> it is just huge. so amy and i hit the gym with a ufc fighter to learn their secrets to getting super fit and, unfortunately, for me you're not going to believe what happened to me in the octagon. think the rough and tumble world of mixed martial arts isn't for you? well, think again. >> my mom's really into it, so i watch it with her. i get super passionate about it. >> reporter: demi lovato and her mom are not alone. the once rogue sport has fought its way into the mainstream raking in $600 million in profits in 2015. amassing 40 million viewers on their biggest fight nights. >> the takedown by rousey. >> reporter: to find out about the draw of the ultimate fighting championship, amy and i stepped into the cage with ufc superstar chris weissman. >> so let's take it to the next level. >> reporter: to maximize the warm-up not to mention the pain
we wore masks that simulate training at high altitudes where oxygen is scarce. >> hi, guys. how is the warm-up? time to get into the octagon. follow me. >> reporter: after nailing our staredown -- i'm trying not to laugh. we moved on to the superman punches. >> ooh. >> the thai clinch. >> i was blacking out for the last three seconds. >> and double leg takedown. >> perfect. >> reporter: finally, amy and i were ready to face off. >> emergency, emergency. >> amy got me with this knee pick. and proving to be the ufc spar star. >> boo. >> wait, what? >> it fits perfect. >> i mean, jesse, you really deserved that. i have to be honest. >> yeah, for getting beat up. i was a good punching bag for amy. don't let the size fool you. she is a bulldog in the octagon. >> i like the bulldog part. two of the ufc's toughest women are joining us in the octagon to share their tips. fitness tips, ufc bantamweight
champion miesha tate and ufc fighter "dancing with the stars" fan also recognize, paige vanzant. thank you for being with us. you ladies are in phenomenal shape. you have to be to do what you do so give us a tip. what can we do at home to try to look a little like you? >> it's a little challenging in dress and heels but i liked your style yesterday. so i'm pretty sure we'll be fine. we'll go into a count it down lunge. six-second lunge, three seconds down and three seconds holding so one, two, three, hold it and then you punch, two, three and you're back up. okay? >> going down, that's where you feel the burn. >> yes, you feel the burn and then you feel it while you're holding it there. try a few in a row. you'll feel it in the glutes. >> that double workout with "dancing with the stars" as well but when you're in the octagon what sort of things do you do to stay in shape? >> since i've been on "dancing with the stars" it's been hard to get to the gym and lift weights. a good tip for anybody at home. all the ladies that want to tone their arms, just walk around the house and do this. >> for how long? >> as long as you can, trust me, it hurts real bad.
you walk around like this. >> with no weights? >> sneak one of these in. >> a little robot? i like that. pop and lock. >> that's how you tone the arms and get a tricep in. that's my workout tip. >> working out to kick some booty. you'll show us some of your moves in the octagon. you said you felt bad putting me in this next move but i'm giving you full permission. >> when i saw that clip, i think i might have my work cut out for me. >> show me what you got. >> this is a rear naked choke. i'll take you back and under the throat. you know how to tap, right? >> yeah, i know how to tap if i'm passing out. >> okay, ready? >> oh, my god. >> are you good? >> yeah. that was good. all right. >> you know what's amazing, she didn't understand what tap meant. she thought i was patting her on the back instead of saying let go. >> that happened. >> you're up, what should i expect? >> i get to do one of these to you. you know, as much as i would like to put you in a rather >> yeah. >> my go to move is to do the
clinch. >> a thai clinch, throw some knee in the face, a little elbow. that's how -- someone big like you. >> when mark ballas is acting up in rehearsal -- >> i do that a lot. i do that a lot. >> we have so much more with these ladies coming up and the rest of our ufc superstars coming up. but first let's go outside to another "dancing with the stars" star, ginger. >> hey. i know that gal paige, yeah, we're on the same team for team dance this week. hey this, is danielle. this is nicholas. they're from long island. did you know it's going to be really cold tonight? you did? oh, so then you don't need me to show you this. the look at the frost advisories and freeze warnings in parts of new england all the way right here through long island eastern long island all above that stationary front, ooh, it is chilly this morning, actual temperatures in the 30s for a lot of folks. >> all that weather brought to good morning. i am meteorologist mike and a scatter shower is possible ask
brief heavy rain and small hail. that's the exception. more than the rule. it's going to be chilly today and look at the record heat this weekend. >> all that weather brought to you by lyrica. the abc hit comedy "the goldbergs" is celebrating its three seasons with a special look back episode tonight. full of never-before-seen extras and hilarious bloopers so take a sneak peek. >> then let me help. you know, when i was your age i was messing around. [ bleep ]. >> making fun of adam for his lazy eye and his inability -- blah, blah, blah, blah. blah, blah, blah, blah. >> who doesn't love a good blooper reel? you can watch "the goldbergs" tonight at 8:30, 7:30 central right here on abc. amy. >> thank you. now to kevin spacey and michael shannon, the two star as president nixon and elvis presley in "elvis & nixon" taking us inside their 1970 meeting.
this shot of them is the most requested photo in the national archives, and i recently got to sit down with the stars. here's a look at their new movie. >> communists and the left wingers are clinging to one another because they're trying to destroy us, elvis. >> i know, sir. good honest americans. they hate us. >> they don't hate us, elvis. they hate what we stand for. >> and so happy to have kevin spacey and michael shannon with us this morning. thank you for being here. >> thank you for having us. >> so, this is the untold story of that famous photo. what happened between elvis and nixon? >> one of the things that really drew me to the script actually is that even though this is based on a real event, the meeting between them is completely mysterious. there's no document of it. there's no recording of it so a real event and completely imagined event. >> it had to have been a huge undertaking. i know you're both incredible actors, but to play such larger than life real people --
>> yeah, i think both michael and i really wanted to approach it in a way that it wasn't like we were going to do impressions of these characters, so what i tried to do is just sort of find an essence of what was sort of nixonian so i listened to a lot of tapes so i could hear what he was like in private more than what he was like in public. >> what were your impressions of that? >> that he swore like a bat out of hell. >> michael, we know all about the elvis impersonators. what did you learn about him? >> the thing i was most surprised about was his deeply spiritual nature. you know, i think a lot of times with the impersonations and whatnot, it leads you to a very superficial view of elvis, but he was actually a very deep thinker, and he read a lot of books that i was surprised to find out he was into. >> what was it like when the two of you first saw each other in costume? >> it was -- yeah, it was pretty remarkable. i mean, we had to start with the oval office scene. >> did you laugh at all? >> we both didn't want to disrespect these characters and
to play them with a certain seriousness, but there were a couple of times when we were shooting, and michael would do something that was so brilliantly elvis-like, and i didn't expect it at all that i completely lost it, and i think there was a couple of times where i did something that was very nixonlike and he lost it so there were a couple of times where we definitely lost it but tried hard to keep a straight face. >> and, kevin, here we are in the oval office again. it seems like you just can't get away from playing presidents. what's more interesting, playing an actual president and what happened or this made up president or do you ever slip? i would be afraid i slipped into that southern drawl of frank underwood. >> what's interesting, the set we used in our film was "the west wing" oval office, and the set we used in "house of cards" is a completely new oval office that we built, so it's actually not the same room and i hope that when people see me in an oval office set in this movie they won't think of frank underwood, and i hope when they see me as frank underwood, they
won't think of nixon. >> well, it's an incredible film. thank you both for stopping by. we appreciate it. >> thank you very much. you bet. >> and "elvis & nixon" is in theaters now. look at this, a ufc sandwich. coming up next, women and men of the ufc sharing some of their biggest secrets. it's all coming up next. stay with us.
thank you so much. did you say honey? hey, try some? mmm that is tasty. is it real? of course... are you? nope animated you know i'm always looking for real honey for honey nut cheerios well you've come to the right place. great, mind if i have another taste? not at all mmm you're all right bud? never better i don't know if he likes that. yeah part of the complete breakfast
♪ this is my fight song welcome back to the ufc on "gma." you can see ufc announcer bruce buffer, he's over there handing out cupcakes and that's because miesha "cupcake" tate is one of the ufc superstars here this morning with us, and we're about to find out why one of the toughest women in the ring goes by cupcake along with some other ufc secrets this morning, but first let me introduce you to everyone. we've met the ladies. miesha tate and paigevanzant we've also got ufc president dana white, we have hall of fame fighter chuck liddell and ufc fighters, jon jones, daniel cormier and frankie edgar. and i'm going to start with you, dana, since you are the boss, first of all, we should start with you, but you have a big announcement and what is that announcement? >> we do, ufc 200 has been interesting, to say the least, you know, putting this thing together. there's been some crazy things
that have gone on, ups and downs, jon jones just fought on saturday night and won his fight against osp. he's been out for 15 months. [ applause ] and now he's back. and he wants his ufc light heavyweight title back so the main event will be daniel cormier versus jon jones. [ cheers and applause ] [ bell rings ] >> there is not a ufc fan in the world who is more excited than i am. like i'm a big fan. i watched you, jon, fight last month and 15 months off you were given an interim light heavyweight title. in order to get the permanent title, you have to be beat daniel who you were supposed to fight but who is injured so how do you feel about that? do you think this is the perfect matchup for you now? >> yeah, absolutely. me and my team, we've been working extensively and have a great strategy and game plan to beat daniel cormier. i got thrown a last-minute change of opponent. felt like i did great with it given the circumstances and
ready to get back to my original plan, which is to dominate daniel cormier again. >> okay. well, daniel, i know you two have a very loving relationship. very contentious if you didn't know relationship, but, daniel, how did you feel? with the injury, first of all, second, how do you think you'll fare in the fight the second time around with jon? >> well, i'm here, obviously, so the doctor's appointment went well. i'm happy. i'm as happy as anybody could be to be in this situation. i've been wanting to fight jon for a long time after he beat me last january, and i feel great. i mean, i made a lot of improvement in the last training camp, and i don't think in july that it should be a problem. >> you know, we're looking forward to this. this is as nice as guys have been to each other as long as i can remember. >> it's early. >> it's early. it's early in the morning for you guys and i want to talk to you, paige, and they call you -- i mean, you're on "dancing with the stars" now. >> yeah. >> i'm trying to -- how do you
go from this fighter to this dancer all of a sudden? you're doing a great job, by the way. >> thank you. >> is there a difference -- >> there definitely is. i get nervous before every fight and before every time i have to dance. you know it's not as much a second nature. obviously i have to remember like memorize the dance routine so it's a little bit harder. i've been having a lot of fun and hoping i can bring some more fans over to the ufc and fans over to mma that don't necessarily know what it is yet. >> you're definitely doing that. and the guy that started it all, chuck liddell, you're a u.s. hall of famer and you made the sport and give him credit for making it mainstream and on top of that being mainstream, you were the first fighter on "dancing with the stars" so have you given paige any advice? >> you know, people ask if i gave her any advice. don't watch what i did. you know, that was the reason i got on "dancing with the stars" was to get -- get a different audience, see that -- back then everyone thought that we were neanderthals and we're kind of neanderthals but not completely. >> i'm not messing with you. and, miesha, why are you nicknamed cupcake?
that's the last thing i would think a fighter would be nicknamed cupcake. >> i wanted to embrace the irony of it. i think early on in my career i got underestimated. people thought, man, she wears a dress and heels. no way she can be tough, cupcake. i thought it was funny after a while and started beating up people that didn't think i would beat them up. and gave myself the nickname cupcake. >> i'm not calling you cupcake regardless of it being your nickname. frankie, do me a favor, keep jon and daniel away from each other. >> yeah. i'll do my best. >> that's why we set you there. thank you guys for coming. we're looking forward to ufc 200 july 9th. i'll make sure i'll be there. coming up, we have the best ways to dress for any wedding from black-tie to the beach so stay right there. we'll be right back with more "gma."
this morning we're helping to decode those invitations and find the best look for guests. lori bergamotto, style director of "good housekeeping" is here to help. i totally get this. you get the invitation and you immediately are like, okay, what to wear. >> what is beach chic mean? we are going to break it all down for you today. >> the most common one is and you, i'm sure, get these all the time, cocktail attire. >> yes. >> first couple would come on out. this is abiba and joey, so if the wedding invitation doesn't say anything, assume it's cocktail attire, semi-formal. what we did for abiba, every look is head to toe under 150. what we did for her, we found a dress that had pattern. this is from h&m under 50 bucks. >> it's cute. >> and love that fit and flare style because it's universally flattering on everyone. to recast the dress and make it dressier, we added some metallic extras like this clutch, the earrings which have a big statement from the bauble barn. >> nice big high heels. >> you need a little bit of sparkle and a little bit of a
statement so we love that and then for joey, the summer is coming. guys do get hot and so what we did here, we did a vest, pant, tie combo and got rid of the blazer. this is from jcpenney, the vest and the pants, 85 bucks. i think he looks good. >> i like the look especially if you hit the dance floor you can't have a jacket. it gets too sweaty. >> but i bet he forgot the pink socks. >> the fancy socks. we did regular dress socks. >> that looks really good. >> thank you. >> so what about in the invitation if it says black-tie. >> okay, so you know what the guy will wear. what does it mean for the girl. does it have to be long? >> so we are of the opinion -- here they come -- you can never be overdressed or overeducated as oscar wilde once said. we say go long. this is from style land, a adrianna papell dress. $65 because you're renting it. >> i was literally going to see if i could buy it. >> we have a charming charlie clutch to dress it up. for justin here, this is amazing. this is from the blacktux.com
and this whole tuxedo which is high quality is 135. >> really. >> down to the shoes. >> i thought it was way more expensive. >> a rental. >> a rental. but the bow tie we got from kmart because it was pretied and under 10 bucks. >> just make it easy. >> fantastic. >> do you tie yours? >> if i have a lot of times. but usually i'm a couple cocktails in so i just tie it up. >> let's bring out the next couple for the beach. >> this is beachy. that's a big trend right now. >> it is. >> so how do you do that and not look too casual? >> so glad you brought that up. lara, the average guest will spend $673 this year at a destination wedding. what we want, it's all about comfort and being cost conscious. on our lovely veronica, she's in a lulu dress off the shoulder. a little nautical. under 50 bucks and then also for sheddon, get down there. we have him in a linen shirt. >> i like this whole situation. >> bow tie company. >> oh, look at you. >> now he's doing his "magic mike." >> go, sheddon. >> for the beach wedding.
