turning now to hugh hefner. as people remember the "playboy" founder, we're taking a look at the magazine and the brand he created held by some as groundbreaking and others as sexist. let's go to chris connelly in los angeles. good morning, chris. >> reporter: good morning, michael. as much as hugh hefner ignited a sexual revolution with the founding of "playboy," he remained a controversial figure. that controversy often focused on the image of women. >> reporter: from the moment hugh hefner published the first issue of "playboy" in 1953, the debate raged. did his magazine celebrate women or exploit them? >> "playboy" exploits sex like "sports illustrated" exploits sports. >> reporter: the "playboy" playmate and the bunny became mainstream erotic ideals for heterosexual men, making hefner a frequent target of criticism from the right and the left in
7:41 am
the '60s and '70s. >> hugh hefner is my enemy. the day you're willing to come out here with a cotton tail attached to your rear end -- >> reporter: despite such critiques, such high profile stars and scores more would be nude in its pages amid a range of reactions after the fact. cindy crawford recalled her posing for "playboy" to "w." >> it was very risky because models of my stature at that point weren't doing "playboy." >> i wanted to be part of the "playboy" family. i'm glad that i did it. >> what if olive comes to you at 18 or 19 and says, mom, i want to pose for "playboy"? >> i wouldn't let her. >> in 1998, hefner and glor glo steinem and the editor

7:43 am
of "playboy" was a rebellious act but the magazine was so successful that 15 or 20 years into its life it was a mainstream institution, almost ike a beer company. and as any institution that successful, it struggled to adapt to change and in the case of "playboy,"hat change was represented by the women's movement. but i think we'll hear a lot of different voices responding to that question as hefner is remembered over the days ahead. >> i'm sure we will. chris connelly, thank you. we'll also hear a lot of people say i just read it for the articles. there we go. robin, what's coming up on the big board. >> i was wondering who was going to be the first to say that, michael. coming up on the big board, pumpkin spice overload. crazy places we're seeing the craze. breakfast biscuits, okay, but deodorant? we'll talk about it on the big board. ast biscuits, okay, but deodorant? we'll talk about it on the big board. ts, okay, but deodorant? it can be hard to get air out, which can make it hard to get air in.

8:02 am
are still to be worked out but here are the broad outlines of his plan. first of all, it would slash the corporate rate 35% down to 20%. for individuals and families it would decrease the number of tax brackets from seven to just three. and it would double the standard deduction. for families that would mean no income tax whatsoever on the first $24,000 of income and the president's team as you saw earlier on "gma" is insisting no tax cut whatsoever for the wealthy. >> can you guarantee president trump won't get a tax cut under this plan? >> george, when we looked at the tax plan and look what it does for americans, we are very confident that americans are getting a great deal here. we've also said that wealthy americans are not getting a tax cut. >> george, there are several provisions in this tax plan that would appear to be a big tax cut for the wealthy including eliminating the estate tax, reducing the top bracket. and eliminating the alternative minimum tax.

>> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, hollywood. >> you go sasha and thank you, abby. we're joined by dr. jennifer ashton. you know about this condition all too well. how many patients come and see you? >> literally on the daily basis. it's often referred to as the most common and least understood hormonal condition affecting women. it's not a disease. it's a syndrome. there's no one definitive test for it. it's an over activity of the ovarian function. ordinarily your ovaries are very orderly. you can think of a penguin one at a time jumping off that iceberg. in pcos all those penguins are jumping together. your ovaries are producing a lot more hormones. >> what are the symptoms? and how is it diagnosed? >> there's a range of symptoms. the mainstay is irregular menstrual cycles. you can have excessive body hair, severe acne on the back or chest. when you see that on a woman,
8:18 am
that can be a red flag. elevated testosterone and ultrasound findings. we use ultrasound less often today because usually you can make this diagnosis really talking to the person. we heard also weight gain can be part of it. >> this affects a lot of teens. what should parents know? >> it can affect 5% to 10% of teenagers. making the diagnosis in a teenager can be more complicated because ordinarily their symptoms are less mature. after a year if they have this, they have as much as a 50% chance of having pcos. it's key to make this diagnose early, empowering the teenager and her parents so that the risk of future heart risk and diabetes can be lessened. >> educate us right now. you have some food here. nutrition is a factor. this can lead to other conditions. >> exactly. nutritional support is a main stay. i think it's well-known if you lose just 5% of your body weight, if you're overweight
8:19 am
that can reduce some of the signs and symptoms of pcos. lean protein, some good carbs are really, really key, lowering sugar, and working with a nutritionist or a physician who knows about how diet and hormones interact can make a world of difference. this is about managing pcos so it doesn't manage you. >> bless sasha for being open about it and discussing it in the hopes of helping others. >> that's going to help so many people and the exercise has been huge for her. >> you can see sasha on "dancing with the stars" monday night 8:00 p.m. earn on abc. go outside to rob. >> check it out, robin, people from washington, from florida, and all over the country. an rv road trip from where? >> bar harbor all the way down to saint augustine, florida. >> you look so happy. let me know how it goes around about georgia. it feels cold out here relative to what we've been dealing with. look at this kite surfer dealing
