>> well, i want to congratulate you and i know that you had so much praise for your national feel? >> you know, honestly i was so nervous going into it and it's something that i've been preparing for for years. i think i was just more worried about what the reaction would be because any time there's a change or something different there's usually a lot of resistance. i think the most thing i was excited about was the aftermath and how much support there really was. >> and sadly there was some negative and specifically an offensive tweet from mike bell, an atlanta broadcaster. how did you react? when did you see his tweet? >> just before i was going to click on it i thought, you know, why? you know, why even, you know, give it the attention? i didn't even want to open it so i've actually yet to read it. >> i love that you took the power back in your way, but for those of us who have read it it's not only offensive it's

misogynist, sexist, a horrible thing to read and when he was called on it he apologized. do you accept his apology? >> i accept hit apology. to me it really was about the fact that he came after me because i was a woman. >> he attacked you solely because you were a woman. and by the way, you've earned where you are right now in your career. >> being able to call these female. but i wanted to get to the point where it's like, let's think about what i'm saying, what i'm doing and not so much, you know, the sex that i am. >> you are one of several female pioneers in a male dominated sports world. how do we move past sexism? >> i want to get to a point where we hear a female voice on nba, nfl age it's like, sweet, she's doing a good job. >> your passion is infectious and i love that you haven't let any of this affect who you are and what you want to do. i'm proud of you and thank you for all the women and all the girls who are looking up to you.

8:13 am
much? >> probably, but actually was a blessing in disguise. the minor t.i.a. revealed that i have a pfo which is like a hole in your heart that i was born with that never closed. so at some point -- >> do the doctors think that may have led to the stroke? >> that's what caused it basically because the blood clot was able to cross over through the hole whereas most people don't have that and not able to do that. >> there are a lot of people out there who said when they first heard the news they said she's faking it. she never had a stroke. she still hasn't had a stroke but what do you say to those >> i think it's sick that somebody would ever think that -- some of the people that have said that, it shows me their mentality. i don't think many people would fake a stroke. >> i would hope not. i really would hope not. with the stars." it's been one of the best experiences of my life and dancing. >> there was a lot of controversy, 22,000 signatures on a petition to get you back on the show with tony dovolani but you sent the producers an iphone

rules this is what the rues said. in the event of a celebrity's disabled during training, such that they will be unable to perform in a live episode of the program, the sent and their professional will be required to withdraw from the competition." now, do you feel like this was fair under your circumstances? >> no. because i was able to dance. i just couldn't fly so i learned my dance on saturday. i was discharged from the hospital on friday, i learned it on saturday and feel like they could have done something via satellite or something. they made exceptions for those who couldn't dance and got injured in a rehearsal or could have used the tape i did on saturday of me dancing. >> did they give you a reason why they were able to continue and you weren't? >> no, they didn't. they didn't. i tried to kind of get an answer because i really do love the show. i love everybody, the purchases, casting directors, but had it came down to it the lawyers made the final decision. >> you posted a video of the "i dream of jeannie" cha-cha. are we going to be able to see that on the finale of "dancing with the stars"? >> i'm not sure what they're going to have me doing.
8:15 am
i'll just be so excited to be there. >> you're not sure what you're going to do. >> no. >> we have to tune in. >> absolutely. >> you know what, we want to say don't -- kim is on "don't be tardy." you were on time today. thursday nights on bravo and you can see "dancing with the stars" on monday at 8:00, 7:00 central right here on abc. thank you, kim. >> thank you for having me. >> george, back to you. our series the new beauty boom. over a56 million americans suffer from some form of hair loss and approximately 40% are women. it's a problem that affects confidence and self-esteem. but now a new treatment may hold promise in helping men and women regrow their own hair. details. >> reporter: move over hair club for men. >> i'm not only the hair club president but i'm also a client. >> reporter: now a promising new hair loss treatment for women and men that may help to regrow and thicken hair without
8:16 am
surgery, drugs or expensive ointments. just look at these before and afters. doctors who use it say the secret is something you already have, platelets in your blood. >> platelets have growth factors this them and they're very good at getting hair to regrow and getting the hair follicles to thicken. >> reporter: it's called platelet rich plasma therapy or prp and research is preliminary but promising. while the procedure is not yet fda approved doctors who use it say it's simple. blood is drawn, the plasma separated in a machine and platelets from the patient's own blood injected directly into the scalp. saying that they contain growth factors that stimulate the regrowth and thickening of fair follicles. regina used prp for her thinning hair. >> i've always had fine hair and i've always wanted fuller volume. >> reporter: she says weeks after her first treatment she noticed a difference and here she is after five treatments.
8:17 am
i feel the thickness. i love the results. >> reporter: at just 22 years old joseph's hair started thinning. he tried every over-the-counter product available. >> over time it just got worse and worse. i didn't know what else to do. >> reporter: he's had five procedures now and gained more than just a head of hair. >> it gave me my confidence back. it helped me to, you know, helped me to want to go out again. i don't have to we are a hat and confidence. >> reporter: some studies suggest that while the results look good, they may not be long lasting. still, the procedure is giving hope to millions with thinning hair. for "good morning america," mara schiavocampo, abc news, new jersey. >> let's talk to dr. jen ashton about this. those are pretty remarkable. what do you say to people dealing with this. >> this is incredibly upsetting so we need to be empathetic. be patient and let me show you why. it has to do with the science
8:18 am
think of three stages, first one is anogen, the active phase. 90% of our hair is it in this phase. it lasts for two to six years. next phase is the catagen, transition, lasts a couple of weeks, a minority of your hair follicles are in this and final phase is telogen, resting face and if you start a therapy today you might not see results for a couple of months so you do have to be patient. >> what does it mean to this prp is not fda approved? >> well for those of us in clinical medicine it doesn't mean that much. we use things awe the time that aren't fda approved. that means they need more study and a good informed concept process understanding the risks versus benefits but the science behind how prp is thought to work is pretty cool. let me show you. if you see regular thinning hair, you inject these growth factors directly into the scalp. it does several things it increases the diameter or density of the existing hair follicle, recruits new growth
8:19 am
the existing hair from falling out. i actually had this done. you're going to see my before and after pictures. i had had about hairs on my head on the left. after four treatments i had a really significant result. but, again, it's not for everyone so it's not going to work for patients who have scarring on their scalp. it's great for male pattern baldness or traction alopecia for people with extensions in and actively studied. >> if this doesn't work what does work? >> a lot of things you can do and take. in terps of things you can take, minoxidil over the counter works. the prescription drug fena fenasteride and the vitamin b buy continue can help too and what you can do rest your hair. don't overprocess, don't overcolor. if there's a medical cause, treat that underlying medical cause. that's key but this is exciting research. >> it is and i bet you'll get a lot of questions throughout the morning.
8:20 am
you will be on twitter @drjashton. >> great crowd out here this morning. we wanted to start in the pacific ocean. this storm has been dying out but it's till going to affect called oho and moving the remnants of will become extra tropical. 13 to 17-foot breakers on the oregon coast and gale warning up through washington state and in alaska so big storm coming up there. hot, heat advisories include anaheim, 102, palm spring, wow then the heat, it sticks around and then the ridge right there in the middle of the country, 85 for kansas city today. that is kevin: the area of high pressure in control of our weather today. later on tonight, clouds will increase in some shower start to push and tomorrow morning. we are in the 40' s as we kick off the day. some 30' s up north. we will see the sunshine out there through the afternoon. temperatures today making their way from the upper range of the 50' s up north to mid 60' s in southern spots. round of showers tomorrow.
