tv Today NBC October 26, 2012 9:00am-10:00am EDT
we're back now with more of "today" on a friday morning. it's the 26th day of october. it's 2012. it's cloudy here in new york, but we're going to have a pretty nice weekend in the northeast until sometime on sunday. then we start to watch out for hurricane sandy making her way up the east coast, and this could be a big damaging storm for millions of people in america. we'll keep a close eye on it. i'm matt lauer along with savannah guthrie. >> coming up, a couple of people are helping us out with "take 3," billy bush and kit hoover from "access hollywood live." set the gold standard in witty
banter, and they are going to join our window seat coming up. >> really. >> did you just use the word billy bush and witty in the same sentence? >> i certainly used it. do you object? >> no, no, i agree. we'll take a tour of homes around the country. wait until you see what you can get for under $300,000. we'll show you around. >> all right. then we'll have the hot headlines from the world of hollywood, including a free concert from katy perry and news from taylor swift perhaps. we'll get into all of that. >> let's go inside. natalie's got the headlines. >> good morning again, matt and savannah. good morning, everyone. the east coast is preparing for a monster storm that could devastate the region with flooding, gale force wind and major power outages. residents in new england are taking precaution buying generators and supplies such as extra water. hurricane sandy battered the caribbean on thursday killing at least 21 people. elev
11 of them in cuba. president obama and governor romney are vying for votes in crucial swing states with the president sitting for interviews with local tv stations and governor romney in ohio. the president has a narrow edge 50-47 in the swing state of nevada. police say a new york city nanny used a kitchen knife to kill two young children in her care before stabbing herself. the children's mother had taken her 3-year-old daughter to a swim lesson. then came home to make the grim discovery. the nanny is hospitalized in critical condition. police have not commented on a possible motive. more client names are expected to be released today in the so-called supprostitution r in maine. they are set to release more than 20 alleged johns who hired the zumba instructor for sex. she has pled not guilty in the
case. lava is now erupting from two different craters in hawaii. lava could be soon seen from the observation deck. and leave it to the royals to know how to throw a party and prince william's sister-in-law pippa didn't disappoint. she was the center of attention at a book barb for her new party planning book, "celebrate." the halloween-themed party was complete with kids, candy apples and fun finger foods. despite being the most famous maid of honor to older sister kate last year, pippa said this event made her very nervous. three minutes after the hour. let's go back to al who is in florida once again. hey there, al. >> hey there, natalie, and yes, we are watching sandy as it makes its way here in palm beach, florida. you can see the seas are awfully angry. rain moving in and out of the area and it will continue this way for the next 24 hours. latest on sandy, 210 miles east
northeast of miami, florida. 80-mile-per-hour winds. it's moving northwest at ten miles per hour. now here's what we're looking for as far as watches and warnings. we're looking at tropical storm warnings from ocean reef, florida, all the way to flagler beach, and then we've got tropical storm watches all the way up into the carolinas. so that's going to continue for the next at least 24 hours. the path of the storm will make its way along the east coast, paralleling the coast, and then eventually by around tuesday night come inland somewhere up into the northeast. that's the national hurricane center plot. there are two other models we look at, the gfs, which is the american model and the european model. the european model differs from these other two in that it brings storm, hurricane sandy, onshore a day earlier and about
200 miles south of where the other two bring it in. so that would come into the delmarva peninsula causing problems there. if this system moves further to the north, it will mean big, big trouble, catastrophic events for the northeast, new york and new england. we'll just have to continue to monitor it. that's what's going on >> and that's your latest weather. savannah? >> all right, al. thank you. time for today's "take 3" where we give our take on the three stories that caught our
attention and yours, though it's usually four, and we're joined by billy bush and kit hoover of "access hollywood" fame. >> like a bunch of skittles. >> very colorful. >> i've insisted that other males be allowed. no matt lauer and i myself sent al roker to florida. >> and created a hurricane. >> i just love in the window seat. i watch y'all and say we made it to the window seat. i remember looking outside. security, let me in here. >> let's going on our takes. have you to give your opinion on this one. take one, what's in a name? you've been reporting jessica biel, now soon to be changing her last name and justin timberlake have wed, but now she's also taking her last name. she wants to be known as jessica timberlake and according to her my professional name will be the same but for life, yes, i think
it sounds great. i think i really won the jackpot of names, jessica timberlake, a great ring to it, and the question is are you all traditionalists? what's in a name? do you take the name? >> you have a whole career. >> profession. >> she's keeping biel professionally but in personal life, jessica timberlake. i love the name. i'm a traditional girl. before i met my husband, i thought kit pitt had a great ring to it. >> remember when you're in the seventh grade, writing it out, with hearts all around it. >> and life takes over and you get more practical sometimes so i keep my maiden name on air and my married name sullivan. >> timberlake is a great name. >> it is a great name. >> if it's that good. >> schmuckler. >> biel is not that bad. >> schmuckler. >> a huge career on her last name, a whole profession of her own as well so she will definitely keep that
professionly. a lot of us can certainly when you're in that position you do want to keep that and have your own thing, and then you go home and be mrs. timberlake >> i think it is getting less common for women to take their husband's names. a lot of friends who are married and kept their maiden names and when you have kids what do you do? do you give them the dad's name or the hyphen thing. >> they take the dad's name. >> the family name, the unit. >> this will get me in trouble with people, i'm sure. not a hyphen guy. >> out in l.a., aren't they like merging names, like husbands and wives. >> they combine them and create a new name. >> we'll mix it up out there. >> i'm glad jessica terrible la -- timberlake is doing this. >> take a look at this world's car commercial, only commercial aimed exclusively at women, this is going to be released. >> when is this called? >> the fitszis.

"parenting" magazine teamed up with nbc's kate snow for a revealing look at how politics plays a role in raising kids. and kate's here along with sean beam, "parenting's" executive editor. good morning to you both. >> good morning. >> obviously such an important topic on so many levels, but you
interviewed, sean, 1,100 parents, all of different races, religious, ethnicities, political viewpoints, so what was the criteria overall for choosing the sampling? >> well, really the criteria was very broad. we wanted people in our demo with families, with kids, under the age of 12. beyond that everyone was welcome to the party so to speak. we heard from a lot of different people and it's really interesting, because especially when it comes to the election, you think about all the decisions parents have to make. >> yeah. >> private school and public school, alternate schedules, regular schedules, am i going to stay at home or work? by the time they get around to the decision of who they want to lead the free world, they are used to making tough decisions. >> kate, you moderated a panel including ten people from the survey. what was your impression of what they were interested in, and what was most important to them? >> jobs obviously came up a lot, but i was surprised how much
education came up and how personal politics becomes when you're a parent and that's one of the key findings in the survey that they did is once you're a parent about half the respondents said that they had changed their political views or that they had strengthened or become more active politically, and i think when you have kids, this is what everybody said on the panel, you start to see things differently. you start to view life through the prism of your children and you want the best for them, and so, for example, two of the women had kids with special needs and they said all i think about is education and health care for my child with a special need. are they going to be okay when i'm gone? and they kind of viewed all politics through that. >> absolutely. well, let's get to some of the results as well from the survey and the connection, again, between parenting and politics. now, 48%, sean, of surveyed said they have become more politically motivated and 42% actually said they changed their viewpoint. you're a father of two. what do you make of these findings? >> i think to kate's point t.changes everything, the lens
you view politics through. you think about the election with parenthood. i think it changes everything, in my opinion. >> another question that you posed to those surveyed, kate, is do parents make better presidents, and majority actually believe that they do? >> right. >> and it all goes back to that question of family values. >> as opposed to a single person, the group that we, the focus group of ten that we had. they would be okay with a single parent or single person as a president, too, but if you look back, you did the research. was it 150 years ago that we had a single president. most presidents are married. >> you think about 150 years, you have to go back to find the first family that didn't have kids, and just shows you how important having kids are to softening the perception and the identity of a presidential candidate. >> first ladies really quick, thought this was really interesting. when asked who would be better
prepared to be the first lady, a stay-at-home mom or working mom? 75% said it didn't matter. >> yeah. >> shows the mommy wars don't matter. >> we make more of the mommy wars than real women do. they all said i don't care whether ann romney worked outside the home. i don't care whether michelle obama worked outside the home. what they cared about is whether those women could relate to women in the real world. they did talk -- we had a vibrant discussion about whether they actually get our problems and understand, you know, the economic struggles that they were having. >> exactly. >> absolutely. you think about we were raised by a single or working mom, friends with a single or working mom. we're married to them, so at the end of the day we respect these people, and i don't think we really separate them out as being different or better than the other. >> they are part of the equation when it comes to picking who is going to be in office. shawn beam, "parenting's "ex "executive editor and kate snow. thanks to having you. >> pop goes today.

as a pastor, my support for question 6 is rooted in my belief that the government should treat everyone equally. i wouldn't want someone denying my rights based upon their religious views, so i shouldn't deny others based upon mine. it's about fairness. i support this law because it doesn't force any church to perform a same sex marriage if it's against their beliefs. and that's what this is about. protecting religious freedom and all marylanders equally under the law. join me in voting for question 6.
