june 4th, 010. captions paid for by nbc-universal television good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> i'm meredith vieira. we get here around 5:00 in the morning. my car pulls up. everybody is looking. i think they thought it was justin bieber coming out. they went, ah, too bad. lucky we got in the building today. there are so many people surrounding 30 rock. >> these people have no idea who we are. not one single idea. we're completely anonymous this morning, and that's just fine. a lot of these people got here over a day ago. they're going to really look forward to a big show in our 8:30 half-hour. also ahead, new details on the attempt to cut and cap the ruptured oil well at the bottom of the wolf. the containment cap was lowered into its position around 9:35 eastern time last night. but engineers are having a tough time telling just how well things are working because oil,
7:02 am
as you can see, is still rushing out. as we've said, it is a delicate operation. you can see why we've got a section of pipe, about the same diameter right here in our studio. it looks big. but imagine trying to cap that a mile down beneath the surface of the ocean. it's a precision operation. we'll get the latest on that just ahead. it's been a year of ups and downs from kate gosselin. she divorced from jon, changed her look, wrote a book and competed on "dancing with the stars." she has a new reality show coming up. we'll talk to her about that and the status of her relationship with her ex. also we're going to talk exclusively to umpire jim joyce about his infamous blown call that cost a pitcher a perfect game and his emotional response to returning to the field on thursday. really a lot of people are praising both jim joyce and galarrago the pitcher for the way they handled this situation. we gin with the latest
7:03 am
attempt to contain the gushing oil well pipe a mile below the ocean's surface down in the gulf. nbc's chief environmental affairs correspondent anne thompson is in venice, louisiana. anne, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. they got the containment cap on, but now the engineers will try to take a good look at the seal because that's the important component of this. how tight that seal is will determine how much oil will go up to a waiting tanker and how much oil will escape. thursday night, a mile beneath these polluted waters, bp secured a containment cap over the leaking riser pipe. earlier, engineers had used a pair of giant shears to cut through the pipe, allowing the oil to flow more freely an leaving behind a jagged edge. >> the amount of oil that might get through that seal is something we'll just have to determine as they put this thing down over the riser pipe and get the best fit they can. >> reporter: from bp's command center in houston, the ceo tony hayward called the cut a milestone but no quick fix for
7:04 am
the spill. >> bp will be here for a very long time. we recognize that this is just the beginning. >> reporter: despite apologizing, hayward is still being criticized for this comment sunday. >> there's no one who wants this thing over more than i do. i'd like my life back. >> reporter: louisiana's governor called the remark "idiotic." >> i'm sorry for inconveniencing him. i don't know what he had's be doing. maybe he'd be on a summer vacation but we are permanently changing people's lifestyles down here. >> reporter: the president's spokesperson remembered the workers who died. >> there is 11 people that would all like to have their lives back. >> reporter: on a louisiana barrier island, innocent victims of this environmental catastrophe. birds trapped in the oil lapping the shore. some so covered in crude, wildlife experts are unsure what kind of birds they are. heartbreaking scenes from the growing spill threatening more of the gulf and louisiana. new computer models from the center for atmospheric research show the spill's impact could stretch beyond the gulf. if the oil gets into the loop
7:05 am
current, scientists say it could travel to florida's atlantic coast in a matter of weeks and all the way up past cape hatteras, north carolina. now the federal government has delivered to bp the first of what is expected to be many bills. this one for $69 million. but as we can see in that video, especially with those birds, there are some things that money can't help. matt? >> anne thompson in venice, louisiana this morning, thank you very much. dug suttles is the chief operating officer for bp's exploration and production division. mr. suttles, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> we're seeing the cap in place. we're also seeing a lot of oil still leaking out. at this stage of the game, is it a success? are you actually capturing oil? is it going into a tanker on the surface? >> you know, matt, what we're seeing right now is we got the cap on last night successfully. what you see leaking out is there are four vents on the top
7:06 am
of this cap. through the course of the day, as we begin to get the system operating, we'll successively close those four vents. they are there to prevent the hydrates from occurring. we're trying to minimize the amount of water that comes in. i think as we go through the day we'll see how successful we are. we're very pleased so far with what we're seeing. >> let me just ask the question again. at this moment you are capturing oil sm it is being brought to the surface and put on to a tanker? >> matt, there is flow coming up the pipe just now. i don't know the exact rate. we'll know that shortly but we do have flow going up the system right now and a bit later this morning we'll probably be able to start to measure that. then as the day moves forward, we'll successfully try -- successively try to optimize the system until we get a minimum amount of leakage out of this containment system. >> people are keeping their fingers crossed, as you can imagine, mr. suttles. i want to play you a comment that president obama made last night on "larry king live." these are tough words he had for bp. take a listen.
7:07 am
>> i am furious at this entire situation because this is an example of where somebody didn't think through the consequences of their actions. >> isn't it saying that bp's failures impaeril an entire region and bp didn't act quickly enough. >> matt, this is a horrible event. we wish we could undo this thing. we're trying to get the flow stopped, fight it offshore. where it does come ashore, we're trying to respond very, very quickly. i don't know what the ultimate cause of this will be. investigations will get to that. the moratorium's been put in place so that it can't happen elsewhere until those are in place. those things all make sense. i know the anger and the frustration is there. >> i also want to call your attention to some comments made by your company's ceo tony hayward. he admitted that the company was
7:08 am
not prepared for a disaster like this. he told the "financial times" in an interview published on thursday that bp didn't have the right equipment in place right after the explosion and that it was "an entirely fair criticism" to say bp wasn't fully prepared for a deep water oil leak. a lot of people want to know, how could the company not be prepared in even if it were a remote possibility that something like this could happen, how can a company like this not be prepared for a worst case scenario? >> you know, matt, i don't actually know what we should have had in place at the time. i think we were doing the same things everyone else in the industry was doing at the time we drilled this well. i think there clearly are things that we need to have that we don't have, that we didn't have when this started. the technology's got to be advanced. something's got to change with the safety systems. we've learned all that since the event. >> but mr. suttles, if mr. hayward admits that it is a fair criticism to say that the
7:09 am
company wasn't fully prepared, you've got a lot of other wells all around the world. are you better prepared at those wells or about the same level of preparation? >> you know, matt, the practices we were deploying here in the gulf of mexico are the same as those deployed in every deepwater basin in the world and the same as those used across the industry. i think what we're talking about here, gaps in the way that the industry deals with the deep water and we're going to have to fill those gaps if this is going to continue. >> mr. suttles, thank you very much. doug suttles, the ceo of bp. thank you very much. >> thanks, matt. >> now here's meredith. as we mentioned, president obama heads to the gulf coast region today. nbc's savannah guthrie is in grand isle, louisiana. savannah, good morning to you. what will be the president's agenda when he gets down there? >> reporter: good morning, meredith. he's going to get a briefing as soon as he lands at the airport in new orleans from admiral thad allen and other local and state officials. then he'll come here to grand
7:10 am
isle right on the coastline and see some of this damage for himself. he'll also talk to some local residents and business owners. i should mention, the president has now decided overnight to cancel a planned trip to indonesia and australia. he was supposed to leave a week from sunday. it was a week-long trip. they put it off again. you may remember, meredith, this trip was originally on the books for march. he canceled it then because of the health care debate. and officials say the need to monitor the crisis, to be here really outweighs any foreign policy value of this trip. they knew they would get a storm of criticism if he were seen half-way around the world, particularly because the initial plans were to also bring along his wife and children for some sight seeing in addition to the foreign policy purposes of the trip. so that trip is off for now. as i said, the president will be here later this afternoon. >> we were just looking at pictures of the president walking the beach the last time he was there. now you mention the word criticism in connection with him. he was criticized after that
7:11 am
visit for not meeting with local residents. this time around will he meet with folks down there? >> reporter: he will. he'll meet with local residents, business owners, there's going to be something here in grand isle for security reasons we can't say where it will be. but he will talk to them and just speaking to folks last night at a local restaurant, they were saying they hoped he would do that. they hope he stays longer. they're not angry at him. many said they were glad he came last week but they want to talk to him, they want to be heard, they want to say how their lives have been changed. and they're mostly angry at bp and they really hope the federal government, the president, will step in and help them because they know their lives have been changed forever, meredith. >> savannah guthrie, thank you very much. a programming note -- tuesday on "today," matt will have an exclusive interview with president obama. tonight, the disaster in the gulf will be the focus of a special "dateline" at 9:00, 8:00 central time right here on nbc. there are new details this morning on the arrest of joran van der sloot, the man long suspected in the disappearance of alabama teen natalee
7:12 am
holloway, was arrested in chile an thursday ending an international manhunt following a brutal murder in peru. michelle kosinski is in santiago with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, meredith. you think of the natalee holloway case, still unsolved. there's always been that question of what really happened, what was joran van der sloot's involvement. but this, he is now suspected of a brutal murder. this young woman found in his hotel room with her next broken. it almost even looks like a flashback to five years ago. joran van der sloot under arrest, again. but this time, for murder. nabbed by police in chile during an international manhunt, caught in a taxi after crossing the border from peru on monday. at one point hiring this driver. >> translator: he was silent. he was preoccupied. he was smoking too much. he told me that he came from lima and he was coming to chile
7:13 am
for tourism. >> reporter: but back in peru in his hotel room, police would discover the body of stephany flores, her next broken, on wednesday. they say it was early is under the two were seen leaving a casino going to the room van der sloot ghookd his name. they say he left four hours later. at stephany's funeral and burial thursday, the grief intense, her father got down on one knee for a farewell kiss to his beloved daughter. yet news of van der sloot's arrest brought some comfort here. >> translator: he can pay for this crime that he committed against my daughter who is at peace, against the soul of this girl who died in aruba and who, up to now, has not rested in peace. >> reporter: investigators believe stephany was not sexually assaulted and that they have incriminating evidence against van der sloot. in the dutch press, one of his friends speculated that if joran was her killer, the crime was
7:14 am
possibly more about money, saying joran had been asking friends for financial help. now the once-promising college-bound son of a judge is in custody for what two families hope is the last time, in different countries but strangely similar cases. joran van der sloot accused of a murder police believe happened five years to the day after alabama teenager natalee holloway disappeared in aruba, her body never found. she, too, last seen with him. her mother, beth, in a statement offered sympathy to the flores family and called for "swift and sure justice." on top of all this now, yesterday in alabama a federal criminal complaint was filed against him accusing him of extortion. he allegedly offered to give someone information about natalee holloway's disappearance, including the location of her remains, in exchange for a quarter of a million dollars. meredith? >> michelle kosinski, thank you very much.
7:15 am
coming up, we'll hear more from natalee holloway's family when her uncle joins us for an exclusive live interview. first, ann's standing by at the news desk with all the headlines of the morning. ann, good morning. good morning. we begin with new efforts today to prevent another confrontation between israel and the ships that are trying to get to gaza. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell is in tel aviv for us. good morning. what more can you tell us about what's happening there? >> reporter: well, with reports that there is another aid ship headed this way, israeli and u.s. officials are working franticly. the u.s. in particular. to try to avoid another confrontation at sea, another clash such as what happened, and to get more aid into gaza. in particular, i'm told that today at a meeting between george mitchell, the special envoy from the white house, and prime minister benjamin netanyahu, george mitchell did discuss ways to get more aid into gaza and to soften the blockade. israeli officials now tell me that the prime minister is considering ways to have the u.n. and other international
7:16 am
inspectors look at future cargo deliveries into gaza to get more aid in, particularly to look at construction materials, concrete. other materials that gaza says it needs to build homes and schools with it, israel has been concerned the hamas leaders of gaza would be using to build bunkers for the military. i'm also told that the u.s. and israel are trying to work out a credible investigation that israel would run into the flotilla cliflow till la clash that led to the deaths of nine people and an investigation into what took place. >> andrea mitchell this morning, thank you. during the night a tragedy in bangladesh where at least 116 people were killed in a fire and more than 100 others were hurt. the fire apparently started with an electrical transformer exploded in heavy rain. border security was a big topic on thursday at the white house where the president met with the governor of arizona. governor jan brewer called for the completion of a fence along the border.
7:17 am
the president complained that arizona's tough new immigration law is discriminatory. mcdonald's is recalling 12 million shrek drinking glasses after toxic cadmium was found in the painted designs on them. the mcdonald's company says customers who bought these glasses should stop using them. overseas markets are mostly higher this morning. cnbc's erin burnett is at the new york stock exchange. the attention there today is on jobs. >> it sure is, ann. america is adding jobs in the month of may. a big story about the jobs numbers though is people hired to conduct the census. we've seen them all around. those are jobs but they are temporary jobs. what really matters is whether american companies are hiring again. that's the most important number. that's why we could see a stubborn -- i guess that unemployment rate might stay a little higher than we wanted to as people come back into the workforce. award winning actress rue mcclanahan died on thursday of a stroke. best known for her role as blanche devereaux on "the golden
7:18 am
girls," rue mcclanahan was 76 years old. tonight it is game four of the stanley cup finals with the blackhawks leading the flyers 2-1 games. and the lakers took game one of the nba finals last night beating the celtics 102-89. game two is sunday night. boom! 18 minutes past the hour. back to matt, meredith and al. >> ouch. >> ouch is right. mr. roker is back from florida but perhaps in a crazier situation, he's out on the plaza. we're getting ready for a concert.
7:19 am
>> that's your latest weather. matt? >> al, thank you so much. bud selig, the commissioner of major league baseball says le not reverse an umpire's admitted
7:20 am
blown call that cost detroit tigers pitcher armando galarrago a perfect game on wednesday night. how does jim joyce, the umpire, feel about that. he's with us now by phone for an exclusive interview. jim, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> i'll get to that question about bud selig's decision in a second. just give me a sense of the emotions you've gone through in the last 24 hours, jim? >> i've probably been at an all-time low, stemming to possibly an all-time high, i guess. >> explain that for me, the all-time high part of it. we understand the all-time low. why have things turned around so dramatically? >> it just comes from the supportive's received from my family, from the tigers organization, the indians organization, major league baseball, the support i received from them, and to be quite honest with you, the fans from the detroit area. >> take me back to wednesday night, that moment two outs in
7:21 am
the ninth. you're as big a witness to history at that moment as any of the people in that ballpark are watching at home. you know what's unfolding around you. then jason donald hits that grounder to the right side of the field, your side of the field, and galarrago goes over to cover first. how heavily was your heart pounding? >> i realized what was going on obviously and when the play was made, it just was one of those plays that was very close and i had been telling myself that, you know, one more out and this kid has a perfect game. and when this play happened, it exploded and i came up with safe. >> yeah. and did you think instantly you made the right or wrong call? >> instantly i thought i made the right call. >> when you went back and saw that videotape replayed for the first time, i know you immediately called to talk to galarrago, asked him to come over. you apologized in person. i know that was emotional for both of you. major league baseball, jim, told you, you could take yesterday off. you didn't have to go to the ballpark. you instead went, you were
7:22 am
behind home plate. and instead of the manager coming out to give the tigers lineup, it was galarrago. it seemed to really choke you up when he shook your hand. >> well, you know, you're exactly right. i couldn't walk away from that the next day. you can't walk away from what you have to do. and a lot of that credit should probably go to jim leyland. he was a class act through this whole thing and probably should have been one of the people that was probably the most upset. jim was actually the first one to come over to the locker room. and he just told me, he said, kid, he goes it happens and that's the way it is. and he sent galarrago out to the plate, it just -- you know, i'm very irish and i'm very emotional. i mean, it was one of those things that i guess it was just a great time for that situation to happen and when he came out, it just hit me hard again. >> bud selig make the right
7:23 am
call, jim? >> i'm going to leave that up to the commissioner's office, matt. because you know, my job is to umpire. and i do not get into the cision making on what should happen and what shouldn't happen. if major league baseball would like my opinion, i'm more than glad to give it, which i think is going to happen. >> you mind my opinion on something, jim? i'm a father of three. one of those young men is a sports fanatic. and you've given me a great teaching moment for my son. i think parents all around the country, this is about sportsmanship, the way you've handled yourself, grace under pressure. and i applaud you. i think you've done a great job, jim. >> thank you very much, matt. i think a lot of applaud should also going to armando galarrago also, because i tell you what, he has -- he has been stand-up through the whole thing and it just -- a bad situation turned into a pretty good situation. >> well, good luck to you, jim. thanks for your time this morning. >> thank you, matt. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc. (announcer) while there are some home disasters you can't avoid,
7:24 am

7:26 am
our time is 7:26. a tragic accident in northeast washington. a boy fts hit and i canned by a car in the 17 hundred block of monteleo avenue. the car that hit him was not speeding and the driver did stop to try to help. we will look at the weather and check out the
7:27 am
7:28 am
the cloud cover breaking up and it's mild and muggy. high in the upper 80s and we will likely get afternoon and evening thunderstorms. not as severe, but we could get storms in the afternoon and highs near 90. could get early to mid-afternoon thundershowers and dry after that. >> we have a new accident in the
7:29 am
7:30 am
7:30 now on this friday morning, june 4th, 2010. it looks like a massive crowd. gathered in rockefeller plaza started yesterday morning. in less than an hour, they'll get a half-hour of live music on our summer concert stage. >> particularly heavy in one particular demographic out there. >> young, cute girls. inside studio 1a, i'm meredith vieira alongside matt lauer. >> we had jim joyce, the umpire involved in that infamous game call. i want to be clear, armando galarrago, the pitcher for the tigers, has just been an incredible sport and should teach our kids a lot of lessons himself. >> two very classy gentlemen. >> no question. you mentioned justin bieber.
7:31 am
we've got another young star we'll talk about today. jordan ramiro is 13, just became the youngest person to ever conquer mt. everest. he's here to talk about his remarkable journey and share exclusive home video that he took along the way. >> i think he's only got one more mountain to climb. mt. vincent in antarctica? something like that. >> he'll do it, i'm sure. where does kate gosselin's relationship with jon now stand and how are their eight kids doing? kate is here to talk to us about it all and tell us about two reality shows she has in the works. very busy lady. more on joran van der sloot and the connection to a young woman's murder in peru. we'll talk to natalee holloway's uncle about that in a moment. but first, here's nbc's lee cowan. >> reporter: arrested in chile for a murder in peru. not even the most artistic spider in the world could spin a web like joran van der sloot has pun. >> he's conducted himself in the last several years as someone you want to feel any sympathy
7:32 am
for. >> reporter: his story began five years ago in aruba, the day he met natalee holloway, a straight-a student from alabama on a high school graduation trip. when she didn't return from their chance encounter, van der sloot started spinning. one competing story after another. but there was always a common thread. >> the one thing was that he was always there. he was always there when natalee holloway died. >> reporter: first, he told police he dropped natalee off at the holiday inn. then he concocted a different story, that he simply left her on a nearby beach. inconsistencies landed him in jail, not once but twice. but charges were eventually dropped. but van der sloot it seemed just couldn't keep quiet about the girl who had made him infamous. in an undercover tape aired around the world, joran was caught confessing, so it seemed, saying that natalee had suffered
7:33 am
a seizure on that beach and he had dumped her body in the ocean. he later said though that that was a lie, only to spin another one. this time he says he sold natalee to a human trafficker. too much? perhaps. his latest story is that natalee simply fell off a balcony while dancing at a party. >> joran is clearly someone who at this point in his life is in such a bad state that someone came along with $10,000 and asked him to tell a fifth version of what happened, he'd do it. >> reporter: as recently as this past monday, prosecutors in alabama say van der sloot tried to extort $250,000 in exchange for disclosing the whereabouts of natalee holloway. does he know the truth? natalee's family insists he does. but, arrested again, this time in peru, stephany flores' body was found in his hotel room. natalee's never been seen again. her story in the hands of a man few believe.
7:34 am
for "today," lee cowan, nbc news, los angeles. >> paul reynolds is natalee holloway's uncle. paul, good morning. what was your reaction when you heard that joran van der sloot had been arrested in chile for the murder of this young woman, stephany? >> i think the first reaction was just disbelief that this had happened. but knowing joran and knowing what we know he's done, it kind of makes sense that this is something that would happen later for him. it's such a tragedy for the family, for stephany's family, we feel what they're going through, it is a terrible thing they have to go through. it is a terrible thing our family's had to go through. there's no way to make it easy. it's going to be a difficult process for them. we just hope at this time that joran is put behind bars and he is kept away from people so that people can be safe. >> you know, he's also been charged with extorting this --
7:35 am
attempting to extort $250,000 in exchange for information about how she died and the location of her body, talking about natalee holloway now, your niece. do you think that that might trigger the aruban officials to re-open the case against joran? >> i feel that all these things together would trigger that. this is such a despicable act, the extortion. it is unbelievable. but combining that with his actions in peru, certainly we would hope that the people that were protecting him, that tried to help him see what he really is. i think they should pursue that. >> we'll bring in pat brown, a criminal profiler and author of "the profiler." pat, good morning to you. how would you characterize joran van der sloot? >> well, it's been kind of interesting because a lot of people have been saying this guy is a serial killer because there are now -- he's alleged to have killed two women. i don't believe that is true. what he is is a serial date rapist who has a rage problem. i believe he does rape women. i believe he uses drugs and alcohol to ply them.
7:36 am
but if he doesn't get what he wants, if they're not out of it enough so that he can rape them without them fighting back, and they do object to what he's doing, he gets very, very enraged, kind of like a domestic abuser when the woman says i'm leaving you. he says, what? you can't leave me, you have to do what i say. he's like that. that's when he goes crazy. >> pat, police have said in the case of stephany flores there is no evidence of a sexual assault at all. >> yes, because i think she fought him off very, very hard so he became so crazy that he did horrible things to her and he never got around to the rape part. he realized, look what i've done, now i have to get out here. this isn't like a serial killer who pre-med tameditates a sexua homicide, he'll jump out, grab a woman and pull her into the bushes. he is actually planning a date rape. obviously sometimes it doesn't go so well for him so he becomes angry. >> pat, the fact that stephany flores was murdered on may 30th, 2010, five years to the day that natalee holloway went missing,
7:37 am
is that pure coincidence, do you think, or is there something more sinister going on here? >> i tend to believe a lot of times in coincidence. but in this particular case i think there was probably an emotional issue going on in his head. i think when he took this girl it was to sort of celebrate the natalee's demise in his own mind, the day that that happened. he took this girl and says this time i'm going to get what i wanted, but she did the same thing natalee did. what he does is he blames the victim. he probably became very angry, look, you're just like natalee, you think you can come back here with me and not let me do what i want? you're just like natalee. this was really excessive violent rage. talking about overkill here with the bludgeoning, stabbing, breaking her next. that's incredible anger. i think in the back of his mind he was thinking about natalee and all the problems that natalee has caused him. now this girl's caused him more problems. he has a bull's-eye on his back, as his lawyer said, but he put
7:38 am
it there. >> thank you, pat brown. paul, what would you like to see happen in this case? >> i want to see him behind bars, locked up. i want him to have a lot of time to think about what he's done. i think that's the best thing. >> paul reynolds, thank you so much for being
7:39 am
good morning. we start off with a mild and muggy morning on this friday. we have the cloud cover breaking up and the sunshine returning. it will climb to near 90 by mid-afternoon and the heat and humidity, we could get thunderstorms developing by late afternoon and into tonight. probably not as severe as yesterday. tomorrow there is a risk of strong to severe storms mid-to late afternoon into the evening. some storms could produce wind damage and hail. >> and that's your latest
7:40 am
weather. meredith? >> al -- thank you. still ahead, divorce, drama and dancing. kate gosselin talks about it all in a live interview. but up next, the 13-year-old california boy who just became the youngest to ever scale mt. everest. he shares exclusive images of his amazing climb right after he shares exclusive images of his amazing climb right after this. hold on a second... come on up here where your brothers sit.

7:44 am
13. he's here for his first in-studio appearance since leaving the mountain. first, an exclusive home look at video of jordan's world-setting climb. it is a mountain that is as dangerous as it is majestic. mount everest has inspired thousands of climbers to make their way to the top. and in the process, claimed hundreds of lives. >> it's giant, it's a beauty. the most beautiful mountain i've ever seen in the world. >> reporter: when 13 yearly jordan ramiro started his ascent last month, he was attempting to become the youngest person ever to summit. >> how you feeling, jay? >> tired. had a big lunch right before this so probably that's what's weighing us down. >> you're doing great. >> still getting closer. >> reporter: jordan's quest began four years ago when he was 9. >> his mural at school, very crude drawing of the seven
7:45 am
summits on a mural walking outside of his school and said, i think i want to do that. i think i want to climb to the top of every peak in the world. >> reporter: from the tallest mountain in indonesia -- >> she have officially tackled the pyramid. >> reporter: to the highest peak in north america, jordan accomplished the toughest climbs on 5 of the 7 continents by the time he was 12. with its high altitude and thin air, mount everest presented jordan with his toughest challenge in his young climbing career. jordan battled high winds, headaches, and the weight of great expectations to make one final push to the top. after months of preparation and weeks of climbing, jordan reached the summit. >> he's fascinating. i can't wait to see with everybody else what will jordan come up with next. >> as i mentioned, jordan romero
7:46 am
is here exclusively with his father and mother who also made the climb. last time we talked to you you were at kind of an advanced base camp. take me from there. how bad did the altitude problems get for you? >> the altitude problems, you know, at first everybody had minor headaches, but everybody in the camp had that. >> minor headaches though? >> minor headaches. but later, we were all acclimated. we're up at 20,000 feet and going higher. so we all felt really good. >> i get light-headed when i go to the top of the rock over here at rockefeller center. can you explain to me what it is like in terms of getting your body to do what you want it to do at 20-plus-thousand feet? >> just climbing everybody re i 10% climbing, the rest is all just resting. and just staying in your tent, just acclimating to the
7:47 am
altitude. it's a long time. we spent up to four weeks up there just -- >> 50 days in total. 51 days. that's a long time. >> yeah. >> weather, what was it like? >> we had it all. we had glorious bluebird sunny days when you're just in a light single player of 20,000-plus feet. then we had the complete extreme, massive, massive late-winter storms, huge snow dumps, extremely high winds minus -- temperatures minus 40, 50, 60 fahrenheit with winds on top of that. >> did you have any -- >> we were dressed for it. >> were there any moments where you thought, okay, forget the final push, let's turn back, this is enough of an accomplishment already? >> when we got there, jordan looked at the mountain and said, you know what? if this is all we do, look at the mountain, i'm happy. but as we were climbing, everything went really smooth and jordan was so strong, we never thought to turn back. >> this is not without
7:48 am
controversy. a lot of people thought jordan, you were too young to attempt this and had no idea what effect this would have on you. what would you say to other parents out there of 13, 14, 12 year-olds whose children are going to watch you on tv and say, i want to attempt that. what do they need to know? >> well, i don't -- i wouldn't really recommend for kids my age or younger to go ahead and try it. you know, it was a very, very hard mountain and it took lots of dedication and so much hard work just preparing for it. especially during the climb. but we trained and prepared so hard. we took our time and effort into it so that's really what it takes. it's really not annest mountain. >> most of all of, we want to pass along our congratulations to the three of you. quite an achievement. jordan, way to go. nice to see you. paul, karen, thank you guys.

8:11 am
your life was in shambles. >> it really was. it was a year of 2009 may be one that i'd prefer to erase if i could. 2010 was the marker for me that it was going to be a better year and the shambles no more and we were moving forward. and so far, i feel like we're in a good place. >> yet in april there was a little bit of a setback because jon filed papers, he wanted full custody of the kids, the eight children. where does that stand, kate, at this point? >> at this point john has rescinded on that. he's dropped the custody battle. at this very moment things are peaceful. he's amicable at this moment. i never know when that's going to change. it changes often. >> you always in the back of your mind worry about that? >> i do worry every day where we're going to be. at this very moment the kids are spending time with him at his apartment. i feel like things are moving along the way they should in more of a normal, if you can call it that, divorce situation.
8:12 am
and generally speaking, things are good at this moment. >> june 12th would have been your 11th wedding anniversary. that going to be a hard day for you? >> you know, not really. to me, i feel like it's just another day in this year of positivity and moving forward. i'm not going to sit and spend really a whole lot of time thinking about what could have been, what would be. i'm going to plunge ahead, as is customary for me just to move ahead and move on and think good thoughts. >> i know that jon has moved on in terms of his personal life. just saw a picture of him with a new girlfriend, the kids. it looked like he was introducing her to the kids. have you been able to move on? >> no. i don't feel like it's time. i feel like my kids need so much of me that i need to be there with them. personally, i don't feel ready to move forward. at some point, i'm sure that i
8:13 am
will. but the kids even talk about it. they bring it up. they wonder am i going to get married again and all of those things. i'm open and i talk to them about it, but jon's decisions remain his decisions. it's just for me to help the kids deal with it. >> but there's an interesting moment -- go ahead. finish your thought. >> it is just hard. they come home and i have to discuss things with them that, you know, they ask me questions, where his girlfriends are concerned. it is just a situation that i have to deal with with them. >> but there is a moment in the special where you are at the up-fronts for tlc for the cable network. sort of promoting your new shoes for now and in the fall. you pass a bunch of girls that are in bridal gowns and you ask them if they're married. when they say no, you basically say keep it that way. are you jaded about marriage, ever marrying again or is that just for the cameras? >> you know, i think whenever i meet a young girl now i think my
8:14 am
challenge to them is be really sure. i got married very young and i just want to be that person in their ear saying, be really, really, really sure. and what's the rush to get married young? that would be my advice to my daughters. i'm already telling them 30 and beyond. >> you wish you had made that choice now in retrospect. >> i do. i do. >> your show is coming back, "kate plus eight." it is going to be a series of specials. were you worried about exposing the kids again, whether they want this to happen? >> i was not worried in the least. i was so glad to open the door and have our crew come in the door and you'll see it in the special how the kids -- i didn't tell them who was coming. i opened the door and they screamed and shouted and attacked them. that to them is a very healthy, normal and they were thrilled to get back and go to florida. they can't wait to see what we have coming this summer. i am very happy that i was able to put that back in their lives.
8:15 am
there's nothing negative about it. >> did it help -- you're saying it was almost providing a rock for the kids. same for you, as well? >> yes. i love our crew. the cameras are off and the cameras are on and i love them, the cameras are off and they're helping me around the house and my crew is an all-man crew and they know i have a list for them when they come, can you move this heavy box here, can you do that? they can't help me enough. for that, they are family. they are absolute family. some of our production assistants come and baby-sit my kids sometimes even. and it's family. it was putting back something that was positive from 2009 back into 2010 and i can't say enough. >> i got to let you go but very quickly, there is a scene in the special where you break down crying when you're talking about the transition you're making from being a stay-at-home mom to now a career mom, workingi inmo and also celebrity, for better or worse. >> you know, it is hard to say

damaging winds and hail. hot and >> that's your latest weather. al, thank you. joran slander slow the is in custody in south america arrested thursday in chile after crossing the border from peru. he's facing murder charges in the death of 21-year-old stephany flores and has long been suspected in the disappearance of american natalee holloway in 2005. nbc's michelle kosinski is in santiago, chile with new details. michelle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. when you think of the natalee holloway case, the fact that it is still unsolved, there's always been that question there of what really happened, what was joran van der sloot's involvement. but now with this, he is suspected of a brutal murder. this young woman found in his hotel room, her next broken. it almost even looks like a flackback to five years ago. joran van der sloot under arrest again. but this time for murder.
9:07 am
nabbed by police in chile during an international manhunt, caught in a taxi after crossing the border from peru on monday. at one point hiring this driver. >> translator: he was silent. he was preoccupied. he was smoking too much. he told me that he came from lima and he was coming to chile for tourism. >> reporter: but back in peru in his hotel room, police would ntw discover the battered body of stephany flores, her next broken, until monday. they say van der sloot left four hours later. at stephany's burial thursday, the grief intense. her father got down on one knee for a farewell kiss to his beloved daughter. yet news of van der sloot's arrest brought some comfort here. >> translator: he can pay for this crime that he committed against my daughter who is at peace, against the soul of this girl who died in aruba, and who
9:08 am
up until now has not rested in peace. >> reporter: investigators believe stephany was not sexually assaulted and that they have incriminating evidence against van der sloot. in the dutch press, one of his friends speculated that if joran was her killer, the crime was possibly more about money saying joran had been asking friends for financial help. now the once-promising college-bound son of a judge is in custody for what two families hope is the last time. in different countries, but strangely similar cases. joran van der sloot accused of a murder police believe happened five years to the day after alabama teenager natalee holloway disappeared in aruba, her body never found, she, too, last seen with him. her mother beth offered sympathy in a statement to the flores family and called for "swift and sure justice." as we speak, joran van der sloot is being expelled from chile

9:10 am
>> he is more calm. we believe that my dad's passing he is going to be with. >> when word came that stephany was missing, what was your initial reaction? >> that day we thought that somebody kidnapped her and when the time was passing and we didn't hear nothing about the possible kidnappers, for us it was like very hard. many things pass cross our mind. >> how would you like your sister, stephany, to be remembered, and rocio, your sister-in-law? >> well, she was a friendly person. she had a lot of friends.
9:11 am
she was very kind. she was very affectionate. really, she was a great girl. >> she was only 21, ricardo. she still has so much life. what were her hopes and dreams? >> she wanted to do business where she can involve people from our country and she told me that she wanted to do that also in the countries that are in our region. >> well, we are again so sorry for you and she was such a beautiful young girl. ricardo flores, rocio dominguez, thank you so much for being with us. we're back with more of "today" right after this. perstar and mom, martina mcbride and sunny d

9:15 am
>> why do some people have reservations about doing this? >> people are worried about security. they like doing it the way they've always done it. we are creatures of habit. what you find is once people make the switch, they wish they had done it years before. >> the benefits? >> you have much, much less clutter. you don't have the bills piling up in your house and you really can't minimize the psychic hurt that you experience when you have all of that paper around you. people -- you become paralyzed. you are moving big chunks of your money out of your checking account using this paper to somebody else. it's very, very difficult to get over. >> and it hurts the environment. >> that's actually the benefit that the people -- a payment corporation did this study. they were looking for a big green benefit. instead what they found is that people told them i am happier once i get this clutter out of my life, and i'm a more satisfied customer of my banks,
9:16 am
my cable company and everybody else who i patronize this way. >> what about safety concerns? a lot of people are worried they see these news stories that somebody's hacked into a bank's computer or something like that. >> it's actually safer. the reason that it's safer is that once you're paperless and are banking online and doing everything else online, you tend to look at your money four times more often than people who bank the old-fashioned way. looking is the best way to know if you've been a victim of identity theft but you do have to take precautions. you could not bank when you take your laptop and you go to a starbucks. you want to do this from your home computer with a landline. make sure you've got your fire wall set up, and when you set up your passwords, they need to be ten characters long with letters and numbers, no information that somebody who reads your facebook page is going to be able to guess. >> and then also, most people -- most identity theft doesn't it happen from paper statements? >> that has been the trend. so getting rid of the paper means that you're no longer
9:17 am
going to be a victim of these dumpster divers, as they call them. but we can get our credit report three times a year, for free, by going to just do that because that's the easiest way to see what's going on in your file. >> is there an economic benefit? >> absolutely. not only do you save a lot of time, it only takes 15 minutes to bank online every month versus two hours if you write checks by hand. you save about $60 a year on stamps. and again, you're doing good things for the environment as well as for yourself and your psyche. >> and there is a certain satisfaction in that you get things done much quicker. >> if you want to make yourself as happy as possible, you not only do this online, you do it immediately. you don't wait to pay a bill. as soon as that bill comes, you deal with it, you get it done, you've taken control, you're driving rather than have somebody else driving for you. and that makes people substantially happier. >> you can focus on other things. because if you've got recurring bills, say your cable bill or
9:18 am
something that's a constant, you can set up a monthly automatic payment. >> right. then you know that you won't be late. one of the reasons that bill paying costs people so much additional money is just the late fees, the extra interest for not dealing with things. if you're one of those people that shoves bills in your purse, carries them around with you, you don't deal with them until a month too late, you're paying $30, $40 extra that you don't have to be pay. >> you were talking to my wife in the green room! >> yes, i was! we're going to get deborah online. >> i've been trying. if you can do it, i will give you 100 bucks right here. >> i couldn't get my own mother online. it took a member of her generation to do it so i will try and do it for you. >> jean chatzky, thanks so much. a look back at the life of one of our favorite "golden girls," rue mcclanahan. and just ahead, another song from justin bieber. but first these messages. ♪

this morning on "today's woman," beauty secrets to help us survive the summer. between the heat and humidity, summer weather seems to cause the perfect storm of hair, makeup and skin problems. but it doesn't have to according to linda wells. she's the editor in cleef of "allure" magazine. linda, good morning. a lot of people write you, e-mail you, asking you questions about this among your readers. >> that's right. they're obsessed with the idea of looking good but being able to have fun and not being obsessed. you don't want to be a person who can't go in the water and can't go in the sun and can't have fun but you want to look good. there are real simple things you can do to deal with the humidity, the sun, chlorine, salt, all those things that are conspiring against you. >> let's look at these concerns one by one. some people are concerned about their nail polish turning yellow in the summer. >> pale colors, it is the sun. pale colors turn yellow.
9:39 am
it is like when you put a newspaper outside and it turns yellow. you can really go dark rather than fight it. it is a little countertutive and it looks good and edgy in the summer. dark, almost purply-blue color. then you don't match your clothes. >> that's very hip and young. our daughters are doing that. >> that's opi called siberian nights. >> another factor is, they're concerned about in the heat their eye shadow tends to crease more? is that right? >> if you wear powder eye shadow, it creases more. the idea is that in the heat you think you'll put on powder to counteract the heat and humidity but it gets caky, creasy. instead of fighting it, go with something that's a cream. these new products, this is laura mercier. it has silicone in it and the silicone locks on to your skin. jane iredale mineral cream colors hang on to your skin better, too. >> good job, alexis.
9:40 am
you even closed your eyes. looks beautiful on you. the other thing i hear about all the time from my friends is frizzy hair in the summer. you actually have a solution. >> we do. it is our "allure" readers' biggest complaint is frizzy hair. the idea is not to iron or torture your hair, just go with it. alexis has her hair up. then wear a cotton band. this is by jennifer baer. >> you've actually pinned the hair band at the bottom. that's one of my problems, it always slides up. >> easy to pin it. it looks good. >> perfect. thank you so much. now, pool hair is another factor. a lot of -- especially blondes worry about hair turning green. >> chlorine has an oxidizing agent in it and it turns green and shows up on light hair. i always have green hair every summer i was on the swim team. you can put on conditioner. i didn't do that.
9:41 am
put on conditioner, this is chlorine conditioner. what's nice is this kind of bakes in the sun and gives you a real treatment. but if that feels like too much, you don't want to wear conditioner in the pool, just soak your hair in fresh water and it plurms mps up the cuticl. >> what about melting makeup? >> that is an issue. that's the idea of wanting to wear creams so you actually get a glow rather than fighting it with pouders. rather than wearing powder bronzer which a lot of women like but it can look a little dirty, try using a cream color. this is brick color, smear it on. it gives you a little sun-kissed glow without the heaviness of bronzer. >> i think we only have time for one more thing. have you a suggestion for basically oily skin? >> right. if you wear sunscreen sometimes you can break out. you want to look at the package and fine one that sais like thi

9:46 am
store. a lot of things you can do with them. brush with canola oil on both sides. put it in a little minimuffin -- or regular muffin continue. then you just kind of push the sides like that. you bake it at 375 degrees for five or six minutes. it is really fast so don't just leave it in the oven. they will torch. >> we've got a tiki torch! >> exactly. this is what they look like when they come out. because you oil them, they just pop out. let them cool before you fill them. then, i like to use tilapia. very light and flaky. use any fish that you like to use. i cut it in small pieces like this. just pan-fry it. salt, pepper, little olive oil. cook them up, two minutes. maybe a minute. this is the kind of thing to do last-minute. this you can do two days ahead of time. >> you want the fish freshly cooked. >> definitely. lime juice. olive oil. three tablespoons of olive oil and a little salt.
9:47 am
that is your dressing. this is why i'm saying, it seems like a lot but it is super easy to do. >> you can do this ahead. >> everything. yeah. pretty much. then what i like to do is add some color an some flavor. i do some avocado and i do some mango. you can do any fruit you like. i like a little bit of onion but a very mild onyion favor so i ue skal lons. i like arugula. i mix it all together. assemble this at the last minute. and then, to top it all off, which you don't have to if you don't want to, creme fraiche. wasabe powder to give it a little bit of a kick of flavor. a little bit of salt to bring out the wasabi. mix it together. that's it. this again you can do at the end. that's what they look like. >> you mound this into the cup. >> yes. we don't have one here but there we go. yes. mound it all in.
9:48 am
i usually do the salad first. the fish, and then a dollop of wasabi cream. >> sweet and sort of a little bit of spicy drumettes. i marinade them in lime juice, then i take them out of the marinade, back them off 400 degrees, 450 for 30 minutes. then what i do is reduce this down so i can brush them at the end and glaze them. >> our nice little tropical drink with little umbrellas. >> yes, fresh pineapple in the blender, rum, agave and lime juice. end with it a little ginger ale. cheers. >> giada delaurentiis. we're going to trade little umbrellas later. but first, since we've got him, one more song from teen heartthrob justin bieber.
