8:34 am
>> stop it. >> yeah. so she doesn't you know, like after the car accident she can't work, she doesn't have her best friend and doesn't have her man. >> when you think about your real life, it's so contrast that, you are newly married for a year to dwin wade. can i ask a question? what is that like? being married to a younger hot man? >> kind of how you made it sound. actually. like hot, delicious. it doesn't get old. every day, he gets out of bed and yes. you look as good going as he does coming. it's not a bad gig. >> how was the first year of marriage? was it what you expected? >> some people look at marriage as like the end of freedom and for some reason especially my husband has sort of looked at it as the freedom to be the man he wanted to be. and i've had to get used to him being so freakishly happy. it's been good, like he's --

her career is the root of all of the problems in her life. can't find a man, it's the career. marriage falls apart, the career. and that's not the case. and just to show my support and to let people know that it just gets better with age and having a career is an amazing thing if you choose to have one. and if you happen to have issues with fertility as you have gotten older and happen to have a career all is not lost. there are so many -- there is so much hope and options and you're not alone. >> you are so nice and sweet, smart and everything. i'm looking at you. i know you're telling me important things, part of me watching going wow. thank you so much. good luck with being mary jane. it begins, october 20th at 9:00 p.m. on bet. up next selena gomez live in concert.

9:02 am
four baseball games. the one everybody is still talking about was saturday night game two of the national league division series out in l.a. mets and dodgers. did you play?his chas dodgers, the sliding in. they call this breaking up the double play in baseball. this is a take out slide. breaking the leg of mets shortstop rubin tejada. he had his back turned in the play and comes down and breaks his leg. utley has been suspended. he'll not play in games three or four. game three is tonight in new york city. he will appeal the suspension. that i make some kind of decision today. the mets lost the game by the way, series tied 1-1. some people think that was over the line. you see takeout slides all the time. that went a step further. >> as i said ea lookedit more like a tackle. >> it is brutal. >> so will major league baseball review this and make changes? that's ttoday, debate willie. >> yeah, i think they have. to you have to protect the second baseman or shortstop who is executing the double play.
9:03 am
you have the base.ear you can't go out of your way to take the guy out. but again, you see those all the time. and i think if tejada didn't break his leg, this wouldn't have been much. zbh exa z >> exactly. hard to see that video. >> that's from me. my generation. >> that is the one. >> all right. you knowwhat?s this weekend president obama was hanging out on the west coast, san francisco. he had a fund-raiser. kanye west apparently was the headliner. and you know as we all know kanye wants to be our next -- or wants to be president. we don'tline. exactly time it could be 2020. we don't know. but we do know that he's very serious app daytly about one giving up his fashion career and music career to become the nation's leader. well pre ident obama gave some advi to candidatebe kanye west over the weekend. >> but in case kanye is
9:04 am
serious about this pea y thing, i do have advice for him. there is some stuff that i picked up on the way. firsall, you got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they're on a reality tv show. you got to be cool with that. do you r ally think that this country is going to elect a black guy from the south side of chicago with a funny name to be president of the united states? that is crazy. that's cra. >> that's cra. >> line.kanye's that's cra. and you know, speaking of cra, actu kanye forree with once on something. the whole app purchase thing for kids, kanye went on a rant this weekend toaddition performing. went on a twitter rant about these ga es geared towards
9:05 am
children that encourage your kid to purchase all kinds of things. sow said in one of them, "we give the ipad to our child and every five minutes there's a new purchase. if a game is made for a 2-year-old, just allow them to have fun. give the parent a break." well some people pointed out that kim k's game has been criticized, the app made her $100 million is filled ith the little underground purchases for kids. there was a mom, a writer i think fo "the new york post" who rant about own it. but i have to say this is why i agree. i don't know if we can get this shot. i told you about this the other day. somehow my phone is linked to my niecapp purchases. i now have three pages of apps. how many puppy games do you need? this is all giana hall's apps. every page. there is a puppy. you can design his clothes. can you pretend to be a vet. i'm like why is she buying? so my little
9:06 am
pony, for example, it's a great game. but if you get the free one, but if you get a free app, a lot of thes next o the level, you have to purchase it. >> with our kids, mind craft o even beyond mind craft they have the other games in order to get not just the level but to get more cha buyers, you have to gems. >> yeah. >> don't you have to put in a code? >> you do. >> we do. >> and my kids know the rule is you have ask. >> but the thing is, that's why i don't know what i did with my phone. she doesn't know the code unless she's a genius and needs to create this invention. but she's 10. >> she has your code. >> you know what? i'm calling her. she's out of school right now. if she k ows my code -- >> they know your code. believe me. >> i love that two parents are, no, code.knows the >> my kids know all of the pass words and codes for every device in the house.
9:07 am
>> i went ht i had -- back and picked the code it was listed as one of the strongest things. >> time to change the code. >> i'm telling you, these kids are jason borne. you think you have the code and george i looking around the corn how you type it and remember it. >> they probably already put their thumb print into the phone. >> beeni've bamboozled. >> yeah. >> time to change the code. >> i'm changing my code and calling that kid. >> we always talk about on the show on work life balance and can women have it all? and now the question, obviously, can men have it all as well? an interesting article in the atlantic magazine. it is by the husband of the busi esswoman an marie slaughter. you may recall that she wrote an arti couple years ago where she made headlines where she talked about why women still can't have it all. that article went viral. so he writes an article as well that is called why i put my wife's career first. which brings up the whole question of, you know, he makes the point that obviously for
9:08 am
husbands have to s you recognize that your woman's career, perhaps, is more the money maker and you have to be able to them llowd to pursue their endeavors. they're more equal as co-parents. he m interesting observations in the article. he says that, you kno that women have also need the same support that men have had all along the same way that -- and also that -- i'm trying to find where he wrote. he says, sometimes at cocktail parties or dinner parties, it's interesting. he writes the very idea of men as lead parents still makes many people uncomfortable at a deep and often subconscious level. nothing quiets the dinner party conversation more quickly than a chance mention of the fact that my wife outearns me. so whileknow, as a society, i think we said we should all be co-parents, equal co-parents. there is still unfo theately judgment that people seem to make. >> we got better.
9:09 am
but just any dad that is the dad on the playground with the moms, ther ais definitely stigma to it. i think we're doing a lot better. but as the society and the culture does better with putting women in high places, this is how it's going to be. the women are going to be in charge in a lot of cases. >> i thi just havewe this judgment society when it comes to me, for example, being the single woman with no children. you know, suddenly kristina was making more cash than you, you would walk in, you know, it seems like whatever lane you're in, there is always someone else in the other car driving. >> right. >> there always has to be sort of a balance play. somebody's going to have to is being fis a little bit more. i do a lot more traveling. but my h own d has his busi ess at home. so it works itself out. and he's able to do a lot of things t at i can't do, the coaching and all of that. >> sometimes you go to dinner parties and people are like you and you don't feel judged. >> exactly. >> right. >> whatever do you, support your family. >> who makes more?
9:10 am
we're going to judge you. >> get out of here. >> ibye.ike, finally, some really fun video we want to show you. we love johnson,e rock especially when he busts a move. so he is doing it once again. he p video rkout dance on instagram. take a look. ♪ >> okay. let's see. he can do any dance. he can do the peewee herman. he has the whole thing. >> look at his moves. >> that man is jacked! >> seriously. >> you guys saw and i didn't. >> i think i need to go to the gym immediately. >> we could have gone with natalie yesterday to spin. >> i'm taking spin. >> all right. let' across to

9:23 am
either. why? >> i feel like it brings up a lot of awkward conversations. so it's -- we do what you do. we watch it separately and talk about it later. i do have friends, my really close friend and his wife, they watch it together. theyit.v they seem to be happy. everything is going okay. different strokes for different folks. for us, no. >> the cool thing in season one on this show which is amazing is that it was told from two different perspectives. and so now we're getting four different perspectives in season two. people just coming to it, can you explain that? >> the central idea in the first show is this event happens. this affair is taking place. and you show it episode is broken into two exact pieces. you show the same day from one perspective and the other. so going into the second season, now that the affair has happened, now that's out there, now we go out and see the other spouses and see how they're dealing inh this their life. and i think it actually -- i haven't actually seen the second episode. >> i did. i did. it's
9:24 am
riveting. >> you are falling apart. >> i think the way that nicole is deali g it with and the way that help sen dealing with it gives us much more dep nooj the story. like what the actual reprecushions of something like this would be. >> yeah. is there some sort of -- are you going to turn a corner, i hope? >> and become a comedy? no. >> not become a comedy -- >> n a lot of laughses on "the affair." >> cole doesn't stay quite as dark a place he is when we see him in episode two. and he does find love. evergrapples.t of that's the thing i love about our show. instead of going for -- and instead of going for the high drama and over the top stuff, the story we're telling is pretty small. it's about how people deal with adversity in their lives. so you see all four of the character as they just sort of try to step out into life and figure it out from here. >> and t the show in is so good across the board. incredible. >> all right. watch it with your spouse, with
