heidi is the star. how generous is it of she to share that. >> it would not be the show without the two of you. >> we're a great team. i love and adore her. >> tell us about -- we talked about your new role. how has it evolved from what people are used to seeing? >> they are used to seeing me with the designers in the work room and then i disappear and don't reappear until i have to tell someone to go to the work room and clean up their space. even though i'm there for the duration of the runway walk and the judges' q&a with the designers and the judges deliberation. i'm there for the whole thing. so the producers said let's bring him out. let's have him actually sit and watch the runway show with the judges and then i do disappear but then i come back after the q&a with the designers who created the top three looks and the bottom three looks. i come back with the models. we descend the runway steps to the judges. right there in front of their chairs. the judges get to feel the
textiles. >> that's made a huge difference. you can't really see the detail and stuff at that distance. >> but kathie lee, it threw me off because i'm so used to saying to the designers, don't worry about that detail. the judges don't get any closer than 25 feet. well, now, one of the top looks in a future challenge, the judges are looking at the garment up close. they find two pins in it. no more top. >> oh, that's tragic. >> the designer didn't go home, but i was able to -- >> whoa. what happens to the winners of -- your past winners. do they go on to great careers? >> it's a good question. i'm so proud of them, but how far they can go after the show really depends upon their ambitions and their financial resources. and that varies. >> somebody usually has to back them. >> exactly. and i will say since the economy is healing and repairing, i have a huge amount of optimism about where they can now go but for the last four years they've really been held back by the
fact, how much room is there for a new brand out there? >> i want to know how this has changed your life. >> oh, my god. >> you were not a household name until this happened. >> and i was a very happy educator for 20 years. i was chair of the fashion department at parsons. i don't think it gets better than that when it comes to education in fashion. i was at the top of the heap and loving it. it was after i turned 50 this phenomenon presented itself. and i never dreamed there would be a season 2, let alone season 12. >> oh, this will go forever. >> i mean, people do ask me how long can this go on. i think about it being analogous to teaching. every semester i have a new crop of students. every semester, i was re-energized and reinspired. and the -- my students took me places i never dreamed i could go. i mean -- >> but it shows that you genuinely care about these people. >> i do. >> good luck with the show and with the emmy. >> and happy birthday.

reinventing yourself. also people have this real urge to do something that matters in the world. we're talking about your second act and better self. but i think people are seeking a way to make a better world at the same time. >> transitions can be very paralyzing for people so i can see there's a lot of fear that comes up around it. so finding tools to really navigate that change is necessary at that time. >> we took a lot of viewer questions and whittled them down to these. let's get some advice. this comes from stacey. i have been a stay-at-home mom for five years. is it possible to go from mommy to career woman without going back to school? that can be daunting? >> yes. the answer is yes. and i think the thing is to stop thinking of yourself as going from mommy to, you know, think of all the work you've done. >> she's still going to be a mommy. >> you'll always be that. what have you done in your community? what have you done in volunteering, fund-raising and running your kids' schools and raising kids and all the issues that raises. have you dealt with learning issues. have you raised money for a big fund-raiser. >> you have done stuff like that.
>> that's the stuff you have to position as the work you have been doing. both in your community and that's going to be the stuff that's going to show up on your resume. you can put it on your linked in profile as volunteer work. >> sometimes it's hard to find what you really want to do. that's what people have trouble with. >> i think it's really helpful to focus on your effortless actions, where were you a philanthropist or working in the cooking arena. what did you do by choice. that can help you get inspired to do that next career path. >> let's go into dating. i'm a 40-year-old divorced just over a year and i have no idea how to get back in the dating world. that's, you know, people say go online. >> it's changed so much when she was dating before. >> i just have to give -- gabrielle is the expert on this. i have personal experience to this one because i lived through that one. and i got back into the dating market at 39 and i met my now husband who was 46 and never been married at the time. >> how did you meet him?
>> online. >> is that the -- >> my mom met her husband on match.com at 55. this is an exciting time to date. it's so easy. there's so many more resources and obviously success stories. >> all right. this one -- >> it's fun. >> all right. she says kimberly writes, getting ready to be an empty-nester. stay at home mom for 20 years. help. >> yes, so you know what? empty-nester, i think i read this question. kids are going off to college. it's kind of like time for your -- we need like school for the second half of life. that's what this woman needs to launch her own encore career and figure out how she's going to match up what she has with what the world needs. and it could be going back to school. could be learning in some kind of whole new way, a fellowship, adult internship. volunteering. there's so many ways to get your feet wet and try some experimenting. >> a lot of it has to do with what you can afford at that point. it's one thing to say i'm just going to become a painter and you don't have to make a living.
what if you have to make a living. >> if you have to make a living, then similar to the last question, focus on what you are inspired by, what's exciting for you. if you are going back out to the workforce and interviewing. if you are energized by what you're going after, you'll be more likely to get that job opportunity. >> you have to be honest about your own abilities. i have a friend who just, you know, decided and at a certain age, i'm going to be an actress. and i tried to explain to her, me, too. i mean, we all want to be an actress. it's not as easy as it sounds. you better have some passion about it and willing to put in the work. >> thanks. are you better off buying these products or purchasing stock in the company that made them. >> i like when we play this game. >> how do you even buy stock? >> we'll get all those answers when we test our knowledge with sharon after this. you fifteen or more on car insurance. yep, everybody knows that. well, did you know some owls aren't that wise? don't forget i'm having brunch with meghan tomorrow.

>> and the commission about $9 or $10 a trade. >> and scottrade which i think is even less. >> let's play stock or stuff. >> what we're going to do, these are companies you probably shop at all the time. $200. would it be better to have bought the stuff from the company or to buy the stock. so first home depot. better to buy the stock or buy all this paint and redone your bathroom and everything else. >> stock. >> kathie lee says stock. >> you are right. it is the stock. as the economy has started to improve, then we're seeing more people wanting to do home improvements. that's why this company has done so well. that $200 investment would be worth almost $600 today. now you need new shoes. you want to go to jcpenney and stock up on comfy shoes. >> what do you say? >> hoda? >> stuff. >> you say stuff? you are right. >> i hit my buzzer. these are big bells. >> it didn't ring. >> look at this. i dinged it. >> just by a hair, kathie lee beat you there. >> they've had trouble.

>> all right. you would be wrong. this is a winning company. you would have doubled your $200 investment in the past three years if you'd bought the stock. the company is expanding stores. all these titles. they are actually a winner. >> all right. >> now we're looking at all these clothes from aeropostale. big teen retailer. what do you think? stock or stuff? >> i'm going with stuff. >> hoda, you are right. you are definitely right. it's really hard. teens are fickle and a lot of people if you want to be at this store, do you want something else? are you still going to wear these clothes? you really want the stuff because the stock has not done that well. >> we're down to our tiebreaker. this one is a tiebreaker. how unusual. >> all this bedding from kohl's. would you like the stock or stuff? >> stock. stock would have done better. >> is she right? >> you would only have made about $25. isn't hasn't gone up much but you still would have gotten some money. >> i would have bought stock in kohl's just because of -- right across the street. michael kors. >> yeah, definitely.
they are perhaps on the rise. more people want to get their stuff, their stock may continue to go up. >> sharon, that was fun. should you -- >> don't you want to know what you've won? >> what did we win? >> what did kathie lee win? we know how much you love bambino and we want to give you all of this. >> i can't. i will share it with hoda because she -- >> i just want the kong. he loves the kong. should you tackle that gardening project yourself or call in the pros? >> and yoga. good morning everyone. checking out the forecast for the next seven days. severe weather will take the top spot this weekend. we are looking at the northeast corridor. cold front will bring an end to the horribly long temperatures. it comes adds a price as your

the beach is gwen lawrence. >> hi, gwen. >> hi, darling. >> so on the beach, yoga on the beach, is it better than yoga in a studio? >> some poses will be infinitely harder on the beach and some will be easier because you'll be able to use the sand as a prop. >> i'll show you two easy ones and two hard ones. >> do you take your mat with you on the sand? >> no, go right in the sand. make sure that your bikini is situated so there's no malfunctions. >> or leakage if you are lactating. >> oh, god. >> what was that? >> so first thing we're going to do is tree pose, right? it's going to be very hard on the beach because now you are talking about an unstable surface. so we'll work the stability of the ankle. for young athletes it's amazing and the small muscles in the leg a lot harder than if you were doing it on a cement floor like this. >> how long should you hold that? >> 4 hours and 10 seconds. >> i answer the phone like this. i cook like this. >> she does. >> i think i was a flamingo in a former life.
this is more comfortable to me than standing on two feet. next a warrior 3. as you can see how hard it would be on the beach. if you just tipped it over and worked all those little muscles in the upper leg and really feel some core work going on. >> and again, you should hold that pose. >> a few deep breaths. you don't want to go in it and then quit. give it some time to work those muscles. >> you are doing great. >> so next we'll do is easier on the beach because what you can do is you can build up a little sand pile. i'm going to have you sit here in easy cross leg. the block simulating a little sand pile. if you have tight hips or hamstrings it pulls on the pelvis. changes your whole shape and really gives you a lot of pull on your low back. in order to sit up nice and tall, your hips higher than your
heels you build a little sand mound. just sitting like this for some people, it's easy for sarah but for some it's very hard and will build up all those muscles in your spine. it's going to open the heart so you can breathe better. when you stand up, your posture will be so much prettier. >> that's great. >> and then the last one, we're going to stay on the block and you'll straighten your legs out in front of you for seated forward bend. same thing. a lot of people struggle with this. hamstrings are tight. they never open. if our hips are higher than our heels, it's like you are going downhill. so there's no more pulling and yanking. you're just kind of going with gravity and falling into it. and it just gets a little bit easier. >> it's a little hill. >> you can get deeper, quicker. >> we wish you the best of luck. >> in september she'll be opening up her own yoga and cycling center. >> studio 14. coming up next week, barry manilow will be here. >> i'm sorry to miss him. i'm going to be off on a trip with my daughter but bobby flay will be here. apolo ohno gets us playing, well. mel b. will be here.
>> carson daly will be with me part of the week and dean cain for the back half. >> have jeff: miss montana. come on out, miss montana. >> my autism doesn't define who i am. i define my autism. jeff: a new standard of beauty. >> someone said thank you. you give my son hope. jeff: then he found a fortune and gave it back despite degree homeless. your life is really turned around. you have a job. >> yes.
