>> we just want to point out, if you've never -- we both subscribe to theskim.com, which is a quick way to get bite-size bits of news and great for people on the go. >> and we love them. >> so cleverly -- >> i want to point out something, carley, we talked about the skim here first and then oprah talked about it. is that true? >> that is 100% true. >> okay! so we want to take a little credit for all of their success. thanks for coming to see us, gang. so here's something interesting. so as you guys know, stephen colbert has this show, helen mirren went on his show and things got a little hot and heavy. so helen mirren, who we love. hot firecracker. 70 years old and gorgeous. walked up to see stephen. hugged him. and then -- did you see that? it was sultry and left him speechless. >> do you think that was spontaneous? >> yes, it was. wait. >> the music is perfect for the moment. >> i want to see it again. can we? >> don't you love the music? >> let's see if they can
i just want to see how she approached and if he looks as shocked as we think he is. >> i guess we're not going to see it again. >> some people do -- wait, here it is. >> hi, nice to meet you. >> oh. >> grabbed the neck. >> okay. wait a minute. now -- now. not to be outdone, sally field was on. she watched, i guess, that moment, and she wanted her own moment. let's take a look. >> what is happening? >> i figured helen did it, why can't i? >> you won't get an argument from me. [ laughter ] i think it goes without saying, i had a crush on you when i was a child. and -- and that hasn't gone away. >> how about now? >> it's just been revived. and i'm pretty sure my wife is going to watch tonight.
>> oh, my gosh! there is something interesting about it, because you can kind of get away with it, because it's kind of jokey but kind of not jokey. >> that was a lot of hands on the back of the head. that was a pull-in. who would you smooch? >> i would smooch -- from our show. i would probably have to smooch blake. because -- >> well, yes. >> because you know, what i want to know what everyone else already knows. a lot of people already know what that feels like. obvi. but when he comes on our show, i just watch him talk and like he's babbling on and on. that's how your mind -- if you could have a thought bubble. >> in your mind, what would it feel like -- >> who would be your one? >> well, mine is sort of strange, although i think he's so hot. colin firth. >> oh, he's hot. >> right? i've loved him since i was like a young kid which is maybe inappropriate. >> i have -- there are certain people are mouth kissers. i have a news director who i used to -- who heard me years ago. his name is joe duke. i love him. and some guys in the south do this. they walk right up to you and i
just a quick peck on the lips and i was like, okay, and i wasn't sure if that was inappropriate or not. apparently it's not because a lot of people do that. >> yeah. i don't know if henry would love someone kissing me on the lips. >> what if someone kissed henry on the lips? >> i wouldn't love that. there's other places on the face. >> lots of real estate. >> henry's cheeks are large. okay. speak -- i mean, in a good way. speaking of kisses, so is it inappropriate or appropriate to kiss your children on the lips? >> there was an article out in the "daily mail" and asked about mouth-to-mouth kissing between people of the same family. mothers and daughters, fathers and daughters, fathers and sons. you know, mothers and sons. anyway, at least one child psychologist says it's wrong at any age. we've talked about this on the show, because one of the things that sparked a discussion -- this is obviously an older child kiss. but bill belichick and his daughter. and we saw that after the super bowl and it was just -- >> i actually thought it was his wife. >> no, no. that's the daughter. >> okay. >> so that was weird.
you should not ask me this question, because i basically make out with my children. i'm still at the age -- anybody who has babies. they'll be like do you have any pictures of you kissing your kids? i'm like kissing, kissing, kissing, kissing. >> but on the lips. >> oh, yeah. when babies are babies, they open their mouths. yeah. >> so like we french. i mean, i don't put my tongue in there but we -- mmmwa. and mila has this thing kiss me like mommy likes. which sounds dirty. >> how does mommy like it? >> this is how mommy likes it. ready? >> you're not kissing me on the mouth. >> not on the mouth. not on the mouth. i promise you i won't -- >> no frenching. don't kiss me on the mouth. >> i will tell you. >> i don't want to know! >> i like a good strong -- it's not going to be on the lips. >> are you sure? >> i promise you. a big strong grab. turn the face.
>> that's okay. >> i like to turn it. >> like a little -- >> oh. okay. but i don't mind kissing my daughters on the lips. i like to kiss them a lot. >> is it any different with fathers? >> henry probably wouldn't make out with poppy the way i do. at some point, i know i'm going to have to give it up. i know. and people are probably judging me. but the thing is, look, there it is. kiss, kiss, kiss. >> that's normal. >> yeah. and i don't take pictures when i'm frenching her. >> so weird. there's a level of weirdness in you. >> if y'all don't agree with me out there -- >> most won't. >> don't you love kissing your babes? >> i think everyone loves kissing their babes. the question of how long and the lingering and the rest of it. and also, what age does that stop? >> well, sadly, mila won't open-mouth kiss me anymore. babies open their mouths -- babies open their mouths when they kiss you. mila doesn't do that. it's mainly on the cheek. >> i think we should move on before child protective services shows up at your house. so we want to see congrats to maria menounos.
she was a guest on our show the day before. apparently she didn't know her boyfriend was going to do it. her boyfriend kevin proposed after 19 years. here's how it happened on howard stern's radio show. >> it reminds me how much i do love you. and although i said that this isn't a proposal, i want to ask you something, maria. would you make me the happiest man on earth and would you marry me? >> are you kidding me right now? >> look at the ring. >> so maria, will you marry me? >> yes! yes! of course! oh, my god, i can't even believe this is happening. >> by the way, is this ring big enough? >> kevin said he wanted to pop the question on howard stern's show because it was the first thing they ever listened to together. they've been together, you guys, before this proposal, they have been dating together for 19 years. >> 19 years. >> she's 37, i think. 19. it must be like almost one of her first boyfriends. >> yeah. that would be too long for me. >> that's a long time. >> that would be too -- i mean, the truth is people are like,
i'm like henry didn't decide. i was like you're asking me to marry you, right? this is no choice. he's like i had no choice, man. she put her claws in me and never let go. >> i do think the whole surprise -- you think in life, especially when you get to a certain age, you're discussing things. >> yeah. >> but it's not -- >> they've lived together. i think they were happy with the way things are. >> yeah. >> but now they're getting married. >> blue ivy had some fun with her mom's makeup bag and what kid hasn't. blue ivy dunked into mommy's makeup bag and got this adorable picture of her. >> she didn't put that makeup on herself, right? >> no, she couldn't have. >> otherwise, she's very talented. >> she needs to go to art school, stat. she looks adorable. >> do you know who she kind of looks like? >> who? my ella. >> oh. >> she's got the same curly hair. i've got to tell you, they've got very similar hair, blue ivy and ella. >> beautiful. >> i've been waiting all week for today.
