7:01 am
all the way he tried to wake her up on video. what would you do today? wednesday, july 24th, 2013. from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live, from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. good morning. welcome to "today." it's 7:00 a.m. on the west coast. i am matt lauer. >> i'm savannah guthrie along side al roker. did you notice this prince of cambridge already mastered the royal wave. the hand peeking out of the swaddle yesterday. >> i think they attached a piece of fishing line to his finger and pulled that up. >> it was cute. natalie standing by at kensington palace with more on the queen's visit this morning and the waiting game for the
7:02 am
name. >> we have a big story back at home. >> even as he sat for the family portrait for "people" magazine, he was still sexing. >> kelly o'donnell has the latest. good morning to you. >> good morning to both of you. seven weeks before the democratic primary there's calls for anthony weiner to get out of the race for new york city mayor. despite lies, incomplete answers, he claims his mistakes are personal, yet again, he has given up his secret life on the internet. pwrarb and defiant at a tuesday night campaign event. >> i won't stop fighting. >> reporter: but anthony weiner's campaign for redemption and new york city mayor is in crisis mode. >> let me just reiterate to my wife how sorry i am that i did these things. >> reporter: with his latest embarrassing admission about online sex.
7:03 am
>> there's no question that what i did was wrong. this behavior is behind me. >> reporter: the 48-year-old democrat faced cameras and new revelations that he continued exchanging explicit sexual messages and photos with women online at least one year after that conduct forced him out of congress in 2011. >> some of these things happened before my resignation. some of them happened after. but the fact is that that was also the time that my wife and i were working through some things in our marriage. >> reporter: but unlike his earlier fall from grace, his wife huma abedin is speaking out in her first news conference. >> it took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to a place where i could forgive anthony. it was not an easy choice in anyway. but i made the decision that it was worth staying in this marriage.
7:04 am
>> reporter: abedin a long time aid to hilary clinton worked hard to help rebuild his imagine. >> nobody will work harder to make it better than anthony. but his come back included new deception. a people magazine feature in july 2012 depicted anthony, huma and their young son saying the scandal was behind them but he was still sending racy messages to other women. >> that was a mistake and i bare responsibility for that. >> after all this, some voters say they can for give. >> i think anthony weiner means well for the city of new york. >> but this morning the new york times editorial teenage page is anything but forgiving saying he has disqualified himself and should take new york city out of his saga. of course other candidates are telling him to get out of the race, too. thank you very much. the host of morning joe on nbc, good morning to both of you.
7:05 am
>> good morning. >> joe, let me ask you, are you shocked or not shocked by all of this? >> shocked. i mean, come on. we now officially live in the age of bill clinton where you can survive a scandal. you look at mark sanford, and you look at bill clinton, and you look at eliot spitzer. it's not about the scandal, it's about competence and the question is can these people do their jobs. spitzer can do his job. he's going to win. mark samford was more equipped when you look at the issues and the debates. south carolina elected him. >> joe you're talking about second chances. this is anthony weiner essentially asking for a third chance. he said yesterday i told the voters other texts and photos were likely to come out and today they have. that defense sounds to me like
7:06 am
hey, voters, you were warned. >> let's say he is the chuck yager of sex scandals. he is constantly pushing the envelope. this is the right stuff for sex scandals. nobody has ever been here before but what will be his undoing, savannah, the longer we go out from this point and press conference we'll look at the timeline and realize what he was doing and what he was saying publicly while he was having the "people" magazine articles written about anthony weiner, and the new york times magazine cover, we supposedly got a new and improved anthony weiner, and it was obviously a different
7:07 am
person called carlos danger. >> the name he went by. i want to ask you about huma abedin. she is asking voters to make a distinction between the personal and political saying she has forgiven him but hasn't she herself blurred that line now by putting herself into the campaign? she is in the campaign videos and she spoke yesterday at the news conference. >> what she did yesterday was extraordinary. i've never seen anything like it before in my life. we have seen political wives standing by their man but this was different. what she did was step in and step up for a man that has disgraced her with behavior that is not in the realm of normal acceptance. cheating has been accepting, adultery has been accepted and there's arrogant political figures lifted up even after disgracing their family with adultery. this is different. online sexting and the conversations that anthony weiner allegedly had put her in an incredibly awkward position. she stepped up and faced the cameras. it was hard to watch. if he succeeds, savannah, it will be because she lifted him out of the political sewer and
7:08 am
put him on the shelf next to arrogant politicians that have the lack of self awareness to take a look at what they have done and think they can do whatever they want. >> lightning round for you. yes or no or something like it. do you expect more revelations of this type. >> i don't know. i would expect probably. yeah. yeah, i think he can't help himself. >> do you think there is any chance, joe, that he drops out of this race? >> absolutely none. >> mika, do you think there is any chance he can win? >> i do. i think his wife is the key here, and his wife has earned from the master, hillary clinton, her boss. >> always good to get the two of you together and get your opinion. >> thank you savannah. now here's matt. now to the royal baby.
7:09 am
he is not stopping the tkaorb and butchious of cambridge from keeping a busy schedule. natalie, good morning to you. >> good morning to you matt. they did leave to go to buckle bury. they have had a parade of visitors before leaving, and the queen came by, and prince harry also have visited, and pippa and james have now came by and they have all met their little nephew. >> reporter: the little prince
7:10 am
had his audience this morning. less than a day ago, this is the moment so many were waiting for, the youngest royal introduced to the world. carried by his proud papa, 31 years ago, he had his first public outing. >> he's a big boy, quite heavy. still working on a mom. >> new mom, looking radiant stepped out in a blue polka dot dress, similar to diana. it must be in the blood, here at just 24 hours old, a first royal wave. >> got her looks, thankfully. >> no, no, no. >> just in case there were any doubts of the diaper changing ability of the hands on royal dad, earlier it was in the day a parade of grandparents visiting,
7:11 am
and first the middletons, and then the very proud grandpa, the prince of whales, and along with wife camellia, and the first social media blitz. >> we can get back to normal now. >> they came to take their new baby home to the palace, and then william took to the driver's seat setting out on the new jersey as parents. >> no name yet for the little prince. when they did emerge from the hospital steps, kate was wearing a blue and white polka dot dress, and here they are comparing that to the photo of princess diana 31 years ago when she walks out the same doors with a little prince william, and that dress already selling out. once again, the kate affect, matt. >> as you would only expect. >> we will check in with you in a little while.
7:12 am
meantime, iowa congressman king facing criticism with comments tied to immigration reform. >> this is what republicans feared about the debate. he has claimed most undocumented immigrants are involved in the drug trade, and now under fire from both sides of the aisle. >> steve king was asked about the dream act, and it would be a path to permanent residency. >> for everybody who is valedictorian, there are 100 other ones out there that are on 100 pounds of marijuana. >> house speaker john boehner saying, what he said is wrong
7:13 am
and there could be honest disagreements about policy without being hateful. >> it's beneath the dignity of this body and this country. >> it's not the first time king has been under fire for making racially tinged comments, and last year he used a degrading metaphor using how the united states could select them. >> you get the pick of the little and you have yourself a good bird dog. >> reporter: just as king refused to apologize during those comments during a heated interview. >> i said that speech was about the bigger of legal immigration, and it was a very complimentary speech. >> we have received no comment back, but this is what republican leaders feared the
7:14 am
debate would turn into. >> the poll, there's a lot of criticism to go around. let's start with the president's approval rating. >> it's taking a hit when you look at what happened not since the debt ceiling debacle of november of 2011 has it been this low. he is taking on water. one of the reasons that i think he is leaving the state today to go and give a speech in illinois. >> let's move to congress. if there were not so much at stake for the american people, these would almost be funny, laughable, but they are not funny. look at the approval rating. >> 83%, all-time high. and republicans feel the same way about congress as democrats do. it's the same reasons that they feel this way about their anger towards congress, but it's universal and bipartisan. >> we asked people in the poll
7:15 am
would you like to throw the whole group out, republicans and democrats in congress, and it's -- >> 57% now. if they could cast, even their own, the one they like, and people hate congress but like their own member, and throw them all out, and we asked this three years ago, and we asked this and have done it six times now and this is sitting at an all-time high. people are fed up, and the question is how are they going to respond. >> this as we take on the budget. >> and immigration, and comments like king not exactly helping. we have new developments on the security concerns tied to pope francis in brazil. >> the aftershocks continue but officials in brazil say they are satisfied with the detail. >> reporter: good morning.
7:16 am
today pope francis goes to the shrine, brazil's largest and most important. earlier this week there was a pipe bomb discovered on the flex, as security turns continue to compete with the spiritual nature of the pope's first overseas trip. world tuesday is underway. opening with a mass on the copacabana beach. >> you see a woman reach out and hand him a baby, and what if she was not handing him a baby? what if she was handing him an explosive device? >> the vatican says security is reviewed every day, but there are no scheduled changes because of monday oka'monday's's chaos motorcade took a wrong turn. >> the pope was extremely happy,
7:17 am
and he didn't close the window of the car. he had his arms out the window reaching out to everybody. >> world tuesday is an international festival, 170 countries represented, to spark revival, and a rock concert. >> you meet them all at once. >> and now led by a media savvy pope using twitter to welcome pilgrims, and reaching out to the young to build the future of the catholic church. >> when you interact with the pope you are basically interacting with jesus on earth. >> reporter: despite the security experts, the vatican says this pope is not going to change his style. he feels at home and he is going to continue to be informal and approachable. >> thank you very much. dozens of workers on a gas rig were rescued on tuesday after alasn explosion off the ct of louisiana.
7:18 am
there was a sheen in the water about a half mile long. officials stress the blowout was not as damaging from pb that sent millions fr gallons of oil into the ocean, and so far no injuries have been reported. good news for apple, and courtney reagan joins us. good morning. >> apple posted another impressive quarter. apple ceo told investors new products will arrival in the fall, and more details will be revealed in september. and then dell, taking the company private today, but now that they upped the offer the vote has been postponed until august 2nd. >> thank you, courtney. finally this morning, a video that has taken off on youtube.
7:19 am
after watching you may consider getting up to first class if you can. this guy gets stuck to a very drowsy person. he tried everything to wake her up, but most of the flight spent in that position. >> he has captioned and he tries to nudge her, and -- >> at the end, she gets up, and she leans up straight and then leans over and falls asleep in the other guy's lap. >> more opportunity. >> exactly right. >> lucky she did not drool. >> i could not take it. it happens. >> other people just film it. >> this is crazy, though. >> by the way, won't ask you what you would have done in a similar situation. you can head to the website,, and we will give you the results of our informal
7:20 am
survey, and put one more on that, go for the emergency exit. mr. al roker here with a check of the weather. >> a tropical disturbance going on and it's heading to the west making its way toward the caribbean, and we will keep an eye on this thing because it could cause problems for the atlantic coast, and by monday it's approaching puerto rico. we also have a big storm system complex making its way in through oklahoma and arkansas, and going to bring anywhere from one to three inches of rain. we will get to your local forecast in 30 seconds.

7:31 am
they are getting. >> and on trending, a parody for the song of the summer. i know they love the song. >> yeah, it's a parody you have to see. >> a little gender bending going on. >> i've seen enough. let's begin with the role and influence the parents of the duke and duchess of cambridge will have on the new prince. natalie is back with us from kensington palace, good morning again. >> good morning to you, matt. even in her absence everybody was thinking about princess diana yesterday as william and kate walked down the step with their own bundle of joy. she would have been just 52 years old. william and kate have strong grandparents on both sides, and this is a child that will be loved and like any grandparents, these are grandparents that just want to spoil their new grandchild. with the queen as great grandmother and prince charles, the future king as grandfather, this will be a very special
7:32 am
child. prince charles has already said he'll play his part in making the world a better place. >> i don't want to be confronted by my future grandson saying, why didn't you do something? >> camilla has grand children of her own from her first marriage and she says the baby is wonderful for charles and he's brilliant with children. well, maybe not all. but william will make sure there will be a diana influence. carol middleton will be the grandmother in chief, though and the one kate may rely on for help in raising the royal heir. carol's closeness to kate never more so than now. kate reportedly spending the weeks before the birth with her family. here is baby kate with her grandmother, carol's mother. a coal miner's granddaughter. carol has been a hands on mother to kate and sister pippa growing up. >> she is very close to all her children but kate being the married daughter, she is very
7:33 am
close to her. >> reporter: her qualities have not gone unnoticed in royal circles. >> from what i've seen, she is a highly sensible young lady and she has got this thing that i admire which is a sense of responsibility without acting it. it's in there. and i think it's a wonderful match. >> reporter: kingdoms are passed down from generation to generation along with the crowns and the jewels. but from humble roots, carol middleton will be an influence on the future king. >> while kate's mother will be very much a helping hand royal experts believe carol and kate will be encouraged to let traditional nannys help out, especially as they have more and more royal engagements.
7:34 am
>> natalie, thank you very much. and i want to say good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> camilla, let me start with you. we've seen the piece on the very different grandparents, the royals and the commoners. is that going to create a balance for this new baby or is it going to create conflict? >> that's the question on everyone's lips, matt. is this baby going to be more cambridge or middleton. carol middleton has a key role to play here. she doesn't face any competition in the absence of princess diana and as the mother of the daughter of this child that's going to take a firm lead in the upbringing, carol will be instrumental. prince charles was a voting doting father. he didn't get the credit he deserved when william and harry were being brought up. that went to diana. but he's going to be there and kate is going to be leaning increasingly on her parents. william calls michael dad. he'll want the child to be
7:35 am
brought up there too. there will be a lot of trips to bucklebury. >> camilla makes it sound like everybody is going to get along. but when a grandchild is born there's a natural tug of war between the grandparent's families. can the middletons compete with the windsors? >> they can. it's worth remember that kate went to a very, very posh public school in this country where she moved around with lots of very wealthy aristocratic people. so i think you can overstate the difference between the two families but there won't be a lot of tug because kate will have the ability of her child to go regularly home to see mom and i think the palace will have learned the lesson of the diana experience and will have to work around that. >> and camilla, how long is it going to last over there in
7:36 am
terms of the media crush surrounding this family, this young couple and their baby? is there going to be press out there on the one week anniversary of his birth? on the two week anniversary? when do they disperse? >> well, how long is a piece of string, matt? there's still a great appetite for this story. we have crowds of people outside buckingham palace today. long may that continue. they all want a look at the birth announcement. let's hope we do get the baby's first steps and the baby's first day at school. i think the couple respect while it's a private cherished moment for them they understand the world wants a piece of it and the press will be at least close. perhaps not on top of them for the first couple of weeks but will be watching as you well know. >> maybe at arms length. thank you guys very much. >> i was going to give you an answer. 18 years old. >> until the bill boy is an adult. >> we want to go outside and get a check of the weather from mr.

out against one of the country's most popular retailers and what they say may change the way you shop. >> reporter: the allure of the sale. prices too good to pass up and we eat it up. >> we love a sale. >> buy, buy, buy. >> everybody is looking for bargain. >> but now these jcpenney employees say some of those amazing bargains aren't bargains at all. >> it's trickery. >> these customers think they're get a good deal. >> and they're not. >> a few months ago jcpenney changed it's pricing model from every day low prices to sales. but these employees say jcpenney was just artificially inflating prices and then putting the same items on sale. gina stone said she did it when she worked at a jcpenney in virginia. >> all of a sudden the rack of

7:46 am
this is. >> very widespread. >> she is a marketed professor at nyu and says many retailers use those sale signs to lure us in. >> you feel smart. you feel happy. you feel you got a great deal. >> do you think they're playing on our emotions? >> the stores are completely playing on our emotions. >> in a statement jcpenney told us all the items put on sale must be previously sold at regular price for a reasonable period of time and it's pricing model is common in the retail industry. >> i don't think what they're doing -- it's to their detriment. >> why did you e-mail me and decide to come forward. you could lose your job for this. >> because i thought it was wrong and the public had a right to know. i don't think they'll survive if they keep doing this. >> so how do you know when a sale is really a good deal? here's the take away. before you guy anything, ask the store clerk was this product ever sold at the regular price? and how long has it been on sale? if it's been on sale for awhile, that's a major red flag.

>> good time to buy a bike. is this going to be this year's model? >> this is a thing about bikes. this is 20% off from a website called after it's a good place but make sure that you have the most recent model. one of the reasons bikes go down in price is there's always new inventions. new technology. so don't buy a really old model. just the last model. >> two times a year they mark down furniture, this is one of them. furniture follows fashion. when you think spring, summer sales on fashion, the reason is most furniture, it's the upholstery that changes. it's the colors that change. it's a seasonal thing. you're going to get a 20 to 60% reduction and the key is to buy the floor models. look for the best floor models and get the best prices. >> luggage, i think if you see a good price you should snap it up because you always need it. >> you travel. this set from macys is usually $600. it's now 199.99.

8:52 am
orange juice. >> i like that. >> yeah, have you tried that? >> i haven't and tomatoes can always use a little sweetness to get the natural flavor of the tomato out. a lot of people put sugar in. >> not so hip on sugar in my food. >> i just put it all in the food processor and depending on how you like it. some people like it chunkier, you can just pulse it like that. >> how do you use that? >> okay. so i like to add it to pasta. >> can i taste a little. >> yeah. >> you just want to taste the sal at a part. >> go. >> i just put it right over the pasta. it's a great salad. it can sit at room temperature and add meets or chicken or whatever or i marinate it with chicken thighs and add the remaining salsa on top. >> let's give bobby a shot. >> lime juice and honey. have ripe avocados and they look like green tomatoes but they're

hazel n haz hazelnuts. >> what would you do for a dressing? >> i make a simple citrus dressing, orange juice, lime juice and honey and fresh herbs. basil and also hint. i like to put it in a blender and just give it a whirl. >> would this be a dressing for any kind of salad with fruit in it or did you taylor it because of the peaches and cherries. >> anything for sure but i like the citrus waking up the fruits that giada is using. somebody does is salad and the dressing. >> it could be any fruit though. it would work. >> i want time for the last one. the happy family. how would you like to be the happie family. we need an icy beverage to serve with our dinners but they don't want a milkshakes. >> i love watermelon juice.
8:55 am
take fresh watermelon juice. a little bit of lime juice and this is from the giada loves to use. it's really good. a very little bit. just bring out the natural flavor of the watermelon juice itself. pour it over ice. the kids go to sleep you break out tequila and add this to it as well. >> i do a little with basil and sugar and water. hello guys. >> hey. >> and lemon juice and sparkling water anded it to sweeten it up a little bit. that's it. pour it over ice. done. >> fantastic. guys. good questions. good answers. as always. we had one family here. they're going to ask the question but we didn't have time. you can ask your question when we go to break.

welcome to today on this wednesday morning, july 24th, 2013. i'm willie geist along with mr. al roker and mel b, scary spice and america's got talent judge. she is with us while natalie is hanging out with the royal baby. that's called best song ever. a little p-- >> you guys were big everywhere you went. >> they're good kids and they're
9:01 am
not crazy. they're down to earth and traveling the world. what an experience. >> they were here in november. they'll be back later this summer by the way. >> do you like them? >> my daughter who is 6 years old loves them. >> you didn't answer the question. >> do i like them? if your kid has to listen to music it's tolerable. >> well, there's a quote. >> it's tolerable. >> she has a poster of zane in her bedroom. >> i actually like -- >> it's good music. >> yeah but they were so nice -- we came in, it was in november, my second day on the "today" show, they were here and i brought my daughter in. they could not have been sweeter or nicer. >> they seem to still be enjoying themselves. >> good kids. >> let's talk about the entrance you made on america's got talent, the live audition last night. again tonight by the way. walk us through this. >> that's the poll. >> the actual poll. >> and there was no safety net
9:02 am
so i would have fallen off to my death. >> did you come down from the ceiling? >> yes. >> as you started to drop -- obviously you rehearsed it but as you started to drop live, was there any misgivings thinking this could go horribly wrong? >> it could go horribly wrong. the thing hi to put my foot in was this big. no harness, no safety net, nothing. it was risky. i'm clinging on for my life. do you see that? doesn't look very comfortable at all. >> but you well abject terror well. >> you do. >> note to self-. i like that. >> you hid it very well. we'll talk more about america's got talent and show the clips of the stranger acts. >> i just howie mandell. >> we'll talk to him in a few minutes. i want to get your take on a story dominating the news, anthony weiner who is running for mayor here in new york city now asked for another chance after revelations he continued
9:03 am
that sexting after his 2011 resignation from congress. the new allegations involve a 22-year-old woman who claims she and weiner met online last july and sent sexily explicit imagines to each other and had phone sex. the relationship began to fizzle out by november last year. here's the press conference which includes his wife huma abedin. >> i have said that other texts and photos were likely to come out and today they have. as i have said in the past, these things that i did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through many challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from congress. while some of the things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there's no question that what i did was wrong. >> our marriage, like many others, has had it's ups and it's downs. it took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to a
9:04 am
place where i could forgive anthony. >> now he says he will not drop out of the new york mayoral election. new york times and new york post insisting he do so. he used the name apparently e-mailing with this woman, carlos danger was his screen name. >> yeah. >> what do you think, not so much about the scandal but about his wife, huma abedin, not just being at the press conference but speaking on his behalf. >> that's a hard thing to deal with. i don't think she has forgiven him even though she said that in her speech. a woman scorn sd the worst thing ever. >> forgiveness is a process. >> it is but if it keeps happening time and time again you have to really rethink everything and i'm not sure if they're just doing it for press now or if he actually genuinely forgive him and still love him. that's a really difficult one. that really is. >> think about what he said
9:05 am
yesterday. after he was forced to re-sign from congress and made up with his wife, after they had a child together he resumed the same thing that got him into trouble to begin with. >> i think he has a problem perhaps. >> huma abedin began as an intern 1996 in the clinton white house. worked side by side, one of hilary clinton's top aids when running for president and secretary of state. still works with hilary clinton. they have a close relationship. it goes without saying that hilary clinton had experience in the area of dealing with very public controversy involving her husband so at least a good sounding board there for her. >> but when it keeps on happening, that's just torturous. >> indeed. now back to the royal baby. we have gone long enough without talking about the royal baby. >> from that to this? >> yes. yesterday we got our first look at the baby and the proud new parents. here's what they had to say outside the hospital. >> well, got a good pair of lungs on him, that's for sure.
9:06 am
>> any parent knows what this feeling feels like. >> it's very special. >> she looks great. >> she does. >> she loves lovely. >> and natalie morales standing guard for us again this morning. natalie, we have a great photograph taken by one of the news agencieagencies. she's coming home soon she swears. a great shot of natalie morales as william and catherine address the media with her iphone. >> taking pictures. >> natalie, good seat for you there. >> of course. i know. i had like a front rowand i got to tell you, i mean it was an amazing moment. truly emotional. a historic moment. for some reason seeing this new little bundle of joy and the royal couple, you can't help but get so excited, especially after i have been reporting on it for nine days so to finally see the
9:07 am
fruits of my labor as well as their labor. that was a great moment. the royal couple they actually left the palace and are headed to bucklebury. spend more time with kate's parents, the middleton so that baby can meet and get to enjoy the grandparents a little bit more. the queen did visit the couple for about a half an hour earlier this morning, visiting her great grandchild here meeting him for the first time. that's right. and uncle harry, now uncle harry, also came by and pippa and james reportedly as well have all met the child. so really great moments yesterday. what struck a lot of us was of course not just seeing the baby for the first time but the royal wave, you saw his fingers kind of go like this. so i immediately -- >> really? >> i also thought -- seeing kate
9:08 am
in the blue and white polka dot dress i don't know if that was intentional or not but you can imagine she was thinking very much about what she wanted to wear and she chose that blue and white polka dot, very similar to the one that diana wore which was sort of a green and white dress. but what i also loved about that dress was the fact that you didn't see -- it didn't seem like kate was trying to hide that he just had a baby. she still had the little left over bump left. >> hold on. hold on. >> i thought she looked incredible. i didn't see a bump. >> she just had a baby. >> there's a tiny little bump. tiny. >> she looked gorgeous. >> she just had a baby. she looked great. >> i didn't have a baby and i have that. >> when you come out of that maternity ward you don't look like a super model and she looked like a super model but she had that little bump and it was such a real moment. a lot of people were like that's what a new mom looks like when you come out.
9:09 am
that was great. >> how about william driving the car. >> people love the prince william moment. >> that's good. >> yeah. >> they're both down to earth. >> that was great. >> he nailed it. >> took me five times to get the car seat in. he has millions watching. boom, out. >> the whole world watching and he drops it right in. >> you guys are hill lairous. >> that's a prince. >> that is. >> then you think he's going to get in shotgun. >> you can hear him also audibly say that and wipe his brow. i think every parent can relate because you know how hard it is to get the car seats in there first try. >> that car seat performance bodes well for what kind of father he's going to be. >> this guy is good. call it a day. take a day. give it to william.
9:10 am
>> he earned it. >> natalie, when are you coming home? let's get to the important matter? >> i am on my way home tomorrow. i'll be back in on friday. >> all right. >> yea. >> the fortnight comes to an end. >> wait a minute, we just heard a cheer coming from northern new jersey. >> your husband. >> josh, luke, and joe. >> that would be my kid who is are missing me. >> and joe. >> yeah. >> natalie, you've done a great job. we can't wait to see you back here. >> yeah. >> all right. i'll bring some london treats for you. >> cool. >> we look forward to it. >> see you guys later. >> all right. we'll talk to you. this is a piece of video we have to show you at once. kid dos the incredible things. if you have a baby, if you have an older sibling with a little baby, i think you're going to relate to this video. this is a mother walking in on her three-year-old daughter and 21 month old son.
9:11 am
what did you do. you are in huge trouble by the way. super big huge trouble. yeah, you are not supposed to do that, are you? are you okay bradley? >> so the little girl said mom i was covering him in cream to protect him from the sun. the trouble is it was diaper cream. >> on the upside, the kid made $20 as a mime. >> my kid did crazy things too. my 14-year-old once shaved her entire two eyebrows off and we were going on holiday the next day so i had to draw her eyebrows in because i was going on holiday with my boyfriend's parents. >> how old was she? >> about three and a half. thank god she didn't cut herself. >> you're lucky she did a clean save at three. >> i know. >> that's impressive.
9:12 am
>> we cutoff nikki's hair. when she was six -- nikki had a nice big afro. it was ugly. my son once ate diaper cream while i was changing his diaper and my wife is like i'm trying to work through this. i don't understand how this happened. did you not notice he had diaper cream in his mouth. >> and you said, i had no answer. >> how were you at putting the car seat in. >> no good. backward the first time. let's get a look at the weather. >> all right. let's look at today. first of all, we have tropical depression four. it's going to make it's way to the west and cause problems as we head toward the atlantic. that will be sometime late saturday into sunday. and strong storms making their way through the mid-section of the country. that will cause problems
