tv Today NBC September 9, 2016 2:07am-3:00am PDT
from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> hey, everybody. welcome to thirsty thursday. it's september 8. who is that? >> that is luke bryant. >> a great show for you today. look at this beautiful lady in our kitchen. that is haley. and that necklace is wearing you beautifully. >> i might need that.
meal for busy parts that is just six ingredients. it has shrimp and pasta. >> and butter. >> better than butter. all right. then time for hoda to make another dream come true. these have been wonderful this week. >> they're fun to do. >> we feature a story who worked tirelessly in his community. he doesn't want any praise for it. wait until you see who surprises him. also, two ladies on the big apple get away are going to head home with gorgeous new looks. our ambush makeover team finishes their magic. >> "american idol," now country sensation lauren elaina has a bold new look and sound. she's doing great. she's going to sing her new song for us that she happened to co-write with megan trainor. >> she's in good company. >> all right. so the verdict is in on ryan lochte. >> can we wait on that for one moment? i want to thank everybody coming out yesterday to win foot country club and golf course. i went with my friend ann.
jewelry, paintings and things. and my friend riri had her gorgeous jewelry. i had my stuff. a large portion of the sales went to children's hospital. so lovely ladies. that is a painting that i've been waiting for two years for. ann just finished that and i hung it in my guest room two weeks ago. >> it's gorgeous. >> it's like four feet by six feet tall. isn't it gorgeous? >> she does incredible work. she has stationery, too. if you can't buy a painting, can you get stationery. now ryan lochte. >> okay, we hear reports there are reports that he has received his punishment for all the stuff that happened in rio, remember the incident with the gas station when he said that he was robbed at gun point and covered up some altercation. anyway, so we understand that the verdict is he is suspended for ten months from swimming. united states olympic committee will not officially confirm that but a usa swimming has indicated that something will be announced today.
some people are saying it's not actually a fair judgement because -- >> well, michael phelps, do you remember when he was busted for dui twice? >> yeah. >> he ended up getting a six month suspension. so the question was is ryan lochte's too severe for what he did? there are two ways you can look at it. one is ryan harmed the reputation of a country and it tainted how the u.s. was viewed there at the olympic games. michael phelps was off-season. >> not that it's okay. >> he could have endangered people, obviously. he was arrest ford drinking and driving. so anyway, that's -- again -- >> we would love to know what you think if you'd like to go to our facebook and let us know. what do you think, hoda? it seems a bit harsh. >> when i was in rio and realized how devastating it was to the people there and working so hard and you're like ugh, why?
let's move on from that, if you don't mind. >> yeah. >> all right. there is more fun. >> this is kind of a little bit weird. >> there is very weird. >> we don't even like saying the word, do we? >> you can a urinate if you prefer. >> do you ever get urination anxiety? you know you go to the doctor and say fill up the cup and you don't have to go? >> i always hate to put my name on it. t >> because people can come in and do something with it. i don't -- i just -- >> do what? >> i don't know. it just shouldn't be sitting around. put it right outside the lady's room door. >> the whole thing is weird. so mel b, she had to perform on command when she was on that show. so here is the story. he got stung about a jellyfish. >> yes. >> he was catching it so they
and he got stung. >> some people believe that urination helps when getting stung by a jellyfish. here, watch. >> we're going to show it? >> yes! >> i don't want to tee on myself. ready? >> oh, no. no. no. no. no. >> pee on demand when somebody is in pain is very difficult. almost. >> this is nasty. >> it's not coming. >> come on. there we go. oh, my god! >> there we go. >> ugh. >> okay. >> there you go. don't say i never did anything for you. >> she saved my life. >> no, give me five. >> that's the other hand. >> ewww. >> one more reason i'm not going to do that show.
>> i know. i know. >> by the way, in case you wonder, the medical unit, they say she didn't have to do that. that urine does not cure a jellyfish sting. that is a myth. >> they think that maybe it can actually make things worse and the jellyfish won't like it. it may make the jellyfish release more toxins. >> here's the thing, i would think that when you're near the ocean when there are waves. you know running water does make you go. like when you hear water running. don't you feel like sometimes you don't have to go and then you're at the ocean and you're like, oh, my gosh, i have to go back in. >> sometimes if i can't sleep, i put on the sleep machine thing and i have waves. >> do you? >> yeah. >> sometimes i run the faucet if i need to go and i can't. i just let it run and then running it makes me go. >> okay.
>> don't even say it. >> i'm not. i'm not going to. i get in trouble all the time. because of my musical tastes. >> we can't hear it though. >> i can. i can hear it. oh, now i can, yeah. >> we're wasting water. we have a show. >> we're wasting it. i hate that. frank used to run the water all the time brushing his teeth. i would go over and turn it off. i >> is it still running? >> it's a weird day. >> g.q. magazine named the worst rock song ever. are you ready? here it is. ? we built this city on rock 'n' roll ? ? we built this city we built this city on rock 'n' roll ? >> "we built this city on rock 'n' roll." >> i mean, 1985. >> it's good sing along song. apparently the band hated the
songs. they didn't like it. it was jefferson star ship. they wanted a number one song and they sold out. the lead singer said she felt like she was throwing up on the audience whether she sang it every time. >> which covered almost everything that a human being can do in a nasty fashion. >> all right. great slick. we hear you. are you ready for i hoda? this is a good one. ready? go danon shea, this is when you're getting ready to go out on a date with your husband/boyfriend, and you know he would rather stay in and it's a very sexy song. so it's getting ready to go out and he wants to stay in and you're going to go home early. listen. ? you're beautiful hair up, hair down another 20 minutes ? ? out the house i'm walking i'm

>> you want lemon? >> this is actually the pasta water. >> exactly. >> and this is going to help -- this is going to actually break up your pasta as it starts to stick together. it's a great way to rehydrate it. >> okay. >> it also can kind of like make this sauce a little thicker. add in a little like. that whisk it together. you want to go really slow. you don't want a thick sauce. just whisk this and as it heats up, the miso will melt down in the butter. you want to go slow. you don't wanto >> this is what is taking the 20 minutes actually. >> yes. >> it's not the other stuff. the shrimp is going to go right in there, too. >> okay. and all these are just going to lay into that sauce. >> usually shrimp cooks quickly. but on a low heat like this, it's a little longer. >> on the low, it is going to take a while. >> all right. >> it's on the low, you know?
>> all right. so now that you have it all cooked up -- >> we get to try it. >> how about that brown butter. >> something is going on down at that end. >> all righty. >> here kat. >> scoot on down here. this is what it's going to turn into, it's going to be really fragrant nutty sauce. all the pasta goes right back in. there and then this is when that pasta water is helpful. it can go all right in there. >> oh, my gosh. bam. >> this is nice. i want to try all the finished ones. >> this recipe go to today.com/food. >> she has written songs with megan trainor and shared the stage with carrie underwood, now former "american idol" lauren alaina is going to sing for us next. >> and i'm going to eat.
