8:33 am
bigger show. and so we are able to do it on a larger scale, but yeah. >> imi'm looking across the street here. and you have got this massive set up on rockefeller plaza wh cere you are going to be doing the show, which dwarves our studio here? >> that's why we did it. yep, to make you look sad and small. >> it's not quite over. we haven't buried the hatchet completely. >> we could have done it anywhere but right across from you. >> do you like going on location. >> i do. jet lag gets me every time but i love new york and i love being out with, you know, more people able to see the show. i think we're going to have a couple thousand people able to watch the show. so that will be fun. >> as you start a season, is it sometimes hard to think about getting through a season? last time i was with you i said how long are you going to do this? >> what did i say. >> actually, you kind of hick upped for a second. it's not like you said, forever. you said, as long as it's fun. at the beginning of the season is it fun?
8:34 am

8:35 am
brand and i thought it was e.d. and realized no, it is ed. >> ed is my nickname that porscha has fauld me forever. it is also my initials so i can see why people would think it's e.d. but i want it to be sort of nongender. i'm going to be doing men's clothing. i'm going women's to start out and i'm going to be doing men's. and i want ed to be just ed. we are doing shoes. we're launching -- it's on line right now doing well, and in bern dorve's here in new york. >> you have a book coming out. we'll talk about as i mentioned on another date. i'm your biggest fan. i was that even before our prank war. >> well, if you want to continue it. >> well it's my turn, isn't it. >> no, no. >> i think it ended with you putting me on a billboard as a plumber.

8:46 am
why do you think this brand works? >> i think that i really just pay attention to every woman. i want to dress the everyday girl. and you don't even have to be a fan of me or want to dress like me. but i feel like i know how to dress every sort of permit. so you don't have to look like me. >> tell me about jessica the businesswoman. some celebrities they put their names on something. it's hand off. i get the feeling that is not you. >> i like to -- i like to have my footprint in everything. so i definitely see most everything that goes out. and if i don't see it, my mom definitely sees it. so she -- i trust -- i trust her eye completely. we. >> we talked the last time you were here i think about potentially you heading back into the recording studee. >> yes. >> you are even building a recording studio in your house. >> yes. >> how is that project going? >> that project is almost wrapped up. i probably have maybe like three

8:48 am
but having a camera on me at all times -- we all know i stick my foot in my mouth a little bit. so now that i'm a mom i probably have to keep it together a little bit better. >> how are the kiddies is maxwell a good big sister. >> she is a great big sister. but she is at that point where she is rolling her eyes at ace a little bibt. >> but she is only 3. >> i know, but she thinks she is 5 at least. yeah, she is so much older than she thinks she is -- i mean, than she is. >> right, chronologically. >> yeah. >> jessica, always good to catch up with you. >> thank you. >> cop gratlations on your success. >> thank you. we think they may have done it while we are chagt.

8:59 am
billowing out of that plane. passenger dominic worthington was evacuated and spoke after standing on the ground. >> you were thinking it could go up at any time. as soon as the crew heard passengers saying there was a fire there was no hesitation whatsoever. the exit doors were opened. they were literally -- it was like clock work for them, it was obviously scary for them. >> 20 people were hospitalized all with minor injuries. british airways is promising to help the passengers with whatever they need. can you imagine looking out the window, fire and smoke coming out. and apparently the crew got them off in a timely and efficient way and got them down the slides and off the plane. >> thank goodness they weren't in the air when that happened. 157 passengers, to corral everybody off the plane safely that's incredible. >> that was breaking last night. they had an expert on and saying obviously the fear is if the
9:00 am
allowing in oxygen. osk obviously that would have been the worst case scenario. i was talking with one of our producers. whenever i see something like, when sully landed the miracle on the hudson. i have to resist from saying int can't imagine what i would do. otherwise i wouldn't fly. it taps into a fear obviously a lot of people have of flying. and we do a lot of flying with our jobs. and people have more access to flying with airfares being less than they used to be. i can't let my mind go there. what would i do. >> worst nightmare. >> my worst nightmare. but you should think about it. that's the reason they do the whole safety. you have to know. >> and how many times do you pay attention. >> and now some of them like delta havic at thattan to doing it in a comedy way to get you to pay attention. even if you are listening subconsciously, settling into your chair or putting the kids into the seat on the plane you are still listening and maybe
9:01 am
some of that will come into play. >> i always do a quick check. i don't listen to the whole thing. i know how to put my seat belt on. but check for the exits. >> al says he counts how many seats up to the nearest exit from where he is sitting. i thought that was a good tip. >> i saw a documentary once where they did talk about how to survive plane crashes like that. they do say you have to -- in a smoaky cabin you wouldn't know where you are going, your senses are completely turned around. let's move on to funner subjects. steven colbert making his debut last night. after nine months. people have been waiting and talking about him for the longest time. he got a ovation. his first guest was george clooney. there to help warm him up. after joking that -- george, obviously they were talking about his marriage. and it was funny because colbert said that amal said that -- basically, george clooney is
