three time emmy awinner is here. going to tell us about the role that he's been playing that he says is one of his all-time favorites. >> and i'm looking forward to your trip today to israel. >> and a special tribute to frank in one of the most incredible places in if world. i think it's the most incredible place. frank just loved it. we'll share that. >> one of your favorite people in the world this year, carol lee, is in "tuck ever lasting" about a family that lives. >> forever. and is headed to broadway. also starring a wonderful guy named michael parks, a beautiful cast. and you might just get a glimpse of her -- nope. you, you might get a glimpse of you behind us when she sings. maybe's downstairs. because you sent in your best days pictures. remember that? >> it will be part of it. are you guys ready for words of wisdom? >> why not.
>> courage is not having -- wait let me do it again. courage is not having the strength to go on, it's going on when you don't have the strength. that's by theodore roosevelt. how about that. >> i like it. you had a big night. >> i had a fun day. yesterday afternoon a bunch -- there's this thing called the garden of dreams. it's an incredible program for kids who have challenges, medical challenges or some kids are coming from homelessness. it's an opportunity for them to show their talents. they're going to wind up in a big talent show. i got to tell you. it's within of the events that you go to and watch a kid holding a microphone and singing and you get to see in front of you their life changing. when you think about how many times in your life to you witness someone's life change -- these two girls sang a taylor swift song.
medical issue where all of our ribs were fused together. when they were singing together they were completely joyful and i cannot wait until they step up on radio stay april 16th. it's going to be great. >> are we going to see a little of this? >> i did some pictures. that was it. >> i saw the whole thing last year and it was fun. >> i didn't have any phone out. >> here's -- we brought the wine bot out. >> and i have a perfect record on the winebot. perfect for music. >> all righty. this is our issue. a new bill has been introduced in the new jersey legislature to outlaw texting while walking. if it passes -- >> where did you come from? >> that was lame. >> certain things are worth it. >> okay. >> okay.
nice talking to you. all right. if you draw blood, be back and show us. if it passes, what could happen? >> you could face 15 days in jail. >> a $50 fine. >> or both. so do you think it's a good idea for someone like right now alex would be on his way to prison for 15 days because he's -- >> sounds like a good idea. [ applause ] >> so the question is it okay. so i think that the penalty is way too ridiculous and severe if you are texting and walking. what if your kid texts you something important and you have to text him back. you're under arrest kathie lee, cody needed something. why don't you go to jail for 15 days. why don't you hashtag it team hoda for a change. >> let's go back to the initial idea of this. we're wondering if it should be against the law. >> illegal and you should go to
>> we're just asking should it be -- >> no. >> that's what i thought. >> no, now you're try -- >> no. i think it should be a progressive thing. >> here's the choice. >> hoda! >> do you get arrested and go to jail or do you not. that's what we're debating. >> you want to win that battle. >> stop it. >> i haven't even started yet, guys and you got the winebot going. i'll give her this one. >> no, don't give it to me. >> what if somebody is going to be killed because they're texting and not looking around? they're either going to go -- they're going to go into a bus, a bus is going to go into them, a pedestrian is going to fall, you're going to sue the city. it's so dangerous to walk and be doing this. it just is. somebody is going to die pum i'm glad they're making this a law. >> jail. >> this is the idea. should texting while walking be illegal.
>> that was the question, hoda. >> the reason i frequented aked out is because when they talked about the penalty i said, 15 days in jail for being arrested. if it was a misdemeanor and you were like hey, slap on wrist, don't do it. >> then they're going to keep on doing it. >> exactly. well finally the red winebot is starting to win. >> that's what's wrong with our civilization. our laws don't me anything. >> let's just debate texting and walking. >> if it was somebody you loved that got killed, it would be against the law. >> and if your son cody was going to prison for 15 days job you wouldn't like it. >> i wouldn't like it but he would never do it again. >> what if you went to jail tomorrow because you had to text andy about something important? >> i don't know who andy is. >> doesn't matter. it's important. >> i wouldn't do ill while i'm walking. i can't see it when i'm sitting down.
than we give it attribute. >> can we take one shot of the wine because i don't think it's going to last. >> the question as we know is should it be illegal to text whale walking. >> and go to jail. let's send justin bieber to jail. bad news for believers. tell them why. >> this is interesting. justin has announced -- >> that looks a bit like a woman right there. i'm sorry. i keep thinking, is that kristen stewart? does it not like like kristen stewart? is that bieber? >> yes. all right. he just announced on instagram that he's not long going to have meet and greets with fans backstage after con seshts because he says it drains him too much. fans pay up to $2,000 fsh or that moment. let's read why justin originally
he said, quote, i enjoy meeting such incredible people but i end up feeling so drained and filled is so many of other people's spiritual energy that i end up so drained and unhappy. i warrant to make people smile and happy but not at my expense. and i always leave feeling mentally exhausted to the point of depression. the pressure of meeting people's expectations of what he's supposed to be is too much to handle. and he wants to stay in a healthy mind. >> he has 114 shows scheduled from now until late november. maybe he should not do as many obligations. i think he's awfully young and awfully fit to be so exhausted. look what taylor swift does with her fans. and i wonder if they pay for it. i don't know. i've been in this business a long long time. i've never heard of people charity stuff. but you get paid?
what you should do which is say hello to your fans and be kind to them. not thousands of them. >> $2,000 for a backstage meet and greet? >> i have never heard of that. >> but at taylor's concert, i continue know this because of karen's daughter got picked, they hand pick super fans from the audience and bring them back as a surprise kind of thing. >> there's no money. obviously people are going to get their money back. it's not a good idea to disappoint fans at that point. anything you've already agreed to he should do and maybe change the policy afterwards. but that is not cool. people that love you will stay with you for the rest of your career if you treat them right. >> you've been in the business for a long time and in order to do that, in order to stay like that, what did you have to do? what's the drill? >> regis and i -- for years i was doing nightclub acts.
you go out there and all the people that are still waiting to see you, you see. >> right. you know? if you're working in atlantic city, they'll bring in the high rollers. that doesn't mean that we got paid any more but that's what you do working for them. you're expected to say hello to high rollers. >> the company backstage who organizes some of these things. issue. they claimed there was some security issue that forced them to cancel all of the meet and greets and then justin put out the instagram that said he was tired or whatever he said exactly. >> who knows what's going on in his private life. if he would stop some of that silliness he wouldn't be so tired. just me, just a mother speaking. i love the kid. i've known him a long long time and i adore his mother. but there es more going on than we know. >> and i think anyone who has been a sounding board for a friend who's been in pain and sometimes you do take on the pain with you and i's not simple.
he's very good about going to hospitals and things like that and being there for sick kids. that's a different thing. he's talking about after his shows. they're not dumping their problems on him, i don't think. they're just thrilled to meet him. we'll see. hoda is winning by a lot. i hope nobody gets hit by a bus. this is going to help the brides go go to the rest room. you can't go. jennifer garner told this great story about when she had this oscar dress she didn't know how to use the bathroom because i.d. was big and flowy. there's something called a bridal buddy. take a look. >> the bridal buddy can eliminate an audience in the bathroom stall on your big day. keeping the bridal buddy hidden.
front of you, pick up the bridal front to back. hold the bridal buddy up and put your arms through the arm hole. you'll be able to recognize them quickly as your something blue. pull the elastic cord tornado you. when you're done, simply undo gown. now you're ready to get back to your party. >> she didn't wash her hands. >> ewww you're right. >> i loved it until then. >> $59.95. that's genius. that was good. we have to take a quick look at these two pictures, kim kardashian and a girl that looks like kim. let's see if we can tell who's >> i can't tell. >> i think the one on the left is kim k.
