case. the exclusive video today, case. the exclusive video today, monday, september 12th, 2011. captions paid for by nbc-universal television and good morning. welcome to "today" on a monday morning. >> i'm savannah gut think. ann is on assignment in iran where she was given u unprecedented access to mahmoud ahmadinejad. >> that's right. she spent an entire day with that leader getting insight on how he sees the world and his place in it. ann will share that with us. casey anthony's parents speak out in their first interview since she was acquitted of murdering her day cayl caylee. how do they feel? we will hear from them coming up. later on, do your kids like
to watch "spongebob squarepants." it may keep them entertained but is it bad for their brains? the interesting new research that may have you paying a lot more attention to what your kids are watching on tv. but let us begin with president obama's thoughts on the economy and the gop presidential candidates. nbc's brian williams spoke to the president exclusively. brian, good to have you here. >> well, matt, thanks for having me. what an interesting weekend to go to washington to the white house and talk to this president. first of all, we had the terror warning, of course, and, second, all those op-ed pieces warning this president he's going to be a one-term president. started out by asking about his poll numbers. 37% of the people believe in the way he's handling the economy and his overall approval rating of 44%. >> one of the things that i learned very early on is thought to worry about polls because if i was worrying about polls i wouldn't be sitting here
interviewing with you. as you recall when i was running for president i was down about 30 points around this time in my first run for the presidency. you know, the truth of the matter is the american people have gone through the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and they are understandably impatient and i can say to them, look, all the actions we've taken have been the right actions. if we hadn't taken those actions things would be much worse but the bottom line is unemployment is still at 9%. and there's still a lot of folks hurting out there, and my job as president of the united states is not to worry about my job, my task is to worry about their job and their economic situation. >> do you watch any of the republican debate? >> you know, i didn't watch my own debates much less somebody else's. >> mitt romney, "the president is a nice guy. he doesn't have a clue how to get the country working again." your reaction. >> i'm not going to start reacting to republican rhetoric
in a presidential campaign. let them decide who it is that will be their standard-bearer. we will have more than ample time to -- >> what do you make of rick perry, the front-runner, i guess? >> well, you know, he's -- he's been the governor of a big state, and, you know, there's no doubt he is a credible candidate as is mr. romney and a whole bunch of other folks. >> tea party here to stay. >> you know, i think the strains that you're seeing in the tea party are a permanent part of the american political landscape. we've always had a anti-federal government bent in a chunk of our population. that's nothing new. i do think that the extreme position that you hear that says government has no role to play in growing our economy, that the federal government has no function to play in building a
strong middle class, absolutely wrong. i reject that view and i think the vast majority of americans reject that view. i think having social security and medicare and medicaid programs that provide a social safety net for people is a vital role for our government. it's not enough for us to just leave that to local charities. >> you said to matt lauer february of '09, "if i don't get this done in three years then there's going to be a one-term proposition." >> well, it would be -- you know, what we've done is we've been able to stabilize the economy and, you know, that is an enormous accomplishment, but the fact of the matter is that we are not where we need to be. and it is important for us to not relitigate all the arguments of the past but rather to say, right now what are the smartest things we can do to put people back to work, and when you look at what independent economists
are saying about the american jobs act, my jobs plan, uniformly what they are saying is this buys us insurance against a double-dip recession, and it almost certainly helps the economy grow and will put more people book to work, and that's what the american people want right now. >> interesting day with the president. i went on to ask him when he's going to channel his inner harry truman as members of his base have been asking. and we were just getting started. i also asked him about all the people who voted for the man on the poster that said "hope." that answer was illuminating. we'll have that tonight on "nightly news." >> when you talk to him about the idea it could be a one-term presidency and he said, well, stabilizing it was an enormous accomplishment, do you think voters will see it that way. >> the voters will see a different president as a candidate in terms of energy and trying to defeat the opponent. whether that's going to make any difference to them on the
economy, it still goes back to your question, can he move it off the dime and if not, voters have a funny way of enforcing their will. >> he's on the road a lot this week. he'll be in ohio, north carolina. supporting this jobs plan. how is he trailing the debate on that versus the republicans? >> i asked him, is this just a big jobs program, a big put people to work dig into the soil and make roads? he says, no, it has a lot of different facet, and he's going to, while not quite painting it as a do nothing congress he'll be running against congress as he goes out into all these congressional districts. >> 80% of people would like to get rid of that particular -- >> 82%, i think. >> brian, good to have you with us. >> thanks very much. >> you can see more of brian's interview with president obama, that's tonight on "nbc nightly news." seven minutes after the hour. here's savannah. >> from one closely watched world leader to one of the most controversial. ann is in tehran, iran, where she was given exclusive access
to the iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad. ann, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah. that's right. we were granted the first ever behind-the-scenes access to the daily schedule of iran's president ahmadinejad. drawing back a curtain on one of the world's most controversial and secretive leaders. after his 5:00 a.m. prayer, president ahmadinejad -- >> good morning, mr. president. >> good morning. >> reporter: walks from his private residence in the presidential compound to his daily workout. jogging with his security team at times seemingly rocky style. before sunrise. then to the gym often lifting weights or cycling. concerned about staying healthy, president ahmadinejad exercises more than 30 minutes every morning and reaches his spacious but simple office before 7:00 a.m. and there he works without shoes but alt 54 with reading glasses.
first up scanning local newspapers and briefs including what western media are reporting. by 8:00 he's on his way. on this day to a gathering of prominent shia muslim leaders. he's called to promote iran as a shia superstate. by 9:40 he's boarding a government 707, more than 50 years old. the flying relic is likely a result of western sanctions long imposed against iran. even during the flight he's m t meeting with ministers. that's the norm his aides say claiming he sleeps just three hours a night and that his days often stretch to 2:00 a.m. they say even iran's supreme leader has advised him to sleep more. in his six years as president, ahmadinejad has visited each province at least three times and every city in each province. at 11:45 after an hour flight we land at remote korizan province.
he first stops at a bazaar meeting local artisans. speaking to some, even in everyday english. >> mr. president, why have you made this point to come to one of the poorest parts of iran to highlight the art and the crafts? >> translator: i want to show that we have some common humanity. human values. do >> reporter: all the nations of the world? including the united states? >> translator: everywhere wherever there is a human. >> reporter: keeping a grueling schedule what is your primary motivation, mr. president? why do you work so hard? >> translator: we barely started working. >> reporter: mindful this is one
of the poorest parts of his country at 12:50 he's on the move again. to review government subsidized housing. iran's poor masses are his base. 26,000 families here alone have gotten homes. these women agree the homes are far better than the ones they used to live in. but as the president attempts to leave, he is surrounded. swarmed by people pleading for food and other necessities. now dramatically more expensive because of rising inflation. later in the afternoon -- this man tells the president he lost three sons in iran's war with iraq and now his wife is sick. the president showing a compassionate side, perhaps trying to remake his image at home and abroad. at 6:35 he lands back in tehran. what is the future for iran? >> translator: i want the same future as i want for every nation in the world, peace,
friendship, happiness and unity. >> reporter: at 7:30 back at the presidential compound for hours for more meetings. he stops to pray for the fifth time on this day. and then in darkness he returns to work expected to go until midnight when night comes day again. president ahmadinejad is about to appear once again on the world stage when he speaks are for the united nations general assembly but in a signs that his controversial rhetoric has not changed on sunday he reiterated his position that 9/11 was "a complicated plan devised as a pretext for the occupation of afghanistan and iraq." there is a lot to ask about including new concerns about their nuclear ambitions and we are now working to bring you that interview tomorrow morning on "today." now back to you, savannah. >> we will be waiting for it. thank you so much. 7:12 nouchlt here's matt. >> savannah, thank you. jacqueline kennedy was one of the most beloved icons in
american history, also pretty private. now the world is getting to see a side of her only friends and family new with the release of a new book and audiotapes. andrea mitchell has details. >> reporter: jacqueline kennedy is heard giving her impressions for the very first time. ee emerges as a much more complex historical figure as does her husband, the president. there are also some startling candid evocative portraits of figures in her own words. it was only months after her husband's assassination when a 34-year-old widow sat down to record more than eight hours of recollections about her husband and his most private thoughts. while they were still fresh, even raw. jfk and his brother bobby on lyndon johnson, the new prefd. >> bobby told me this later and i know jack said it to me, sometimes, "oh, god, can you
ever imagine what would happen to the country if lyndon was president? so many times he would say if there ever was a problem." >> reporter: she called lyndon jack's right arm and more than that we were friends, all four of us. almost a half century later we hear a different view. perhaps colored by bobby kennedy's resentments after the assassination. and her annoyance after this call from johnson a month after her husband's death. two days before christmas. >> i hope that you are doing all right. >> oh, i'm doing fine. thank you. >> do you know how much we love you? you have a good christmas, dear. >> thank you, the same to you. >> tonight. >> reporter: hours later jackie learned lbj was showing off for a room full of reporters. just as stunning criticisms of the leader of dr. martin luther king jr. but they need to be understood in context. at the time fbi director j. edgar hoover was trying to incite divisions between dr.
king andkennedy and was told he was overheard on wire tapes making crude comments about jackie kennedy. kissing her coffin on the day of jack's funeral. they were supposed to be locked in a vault for a century but caroline kennedy decided to release them now, all 8 1/2 hours uncensored because she feels you don't gain someone else's oral history. she explained it isn't surprising her mother would have at the time made some statements she might have changed later. as caroline told "parade" when she first read the transcript shortly after her mother died they reminded her mother felt what made historical figures human was what made them more interesting and indeed emerging from this oral history is a very different jacqueline kennedy. not the long familiar public figure whose whispery voice guided us to the white house. >> seemed such a shame when we came here to find hardly anything of the past.
>> reporter: or the fashion icon. >> i am the man who accompanied jacqueline kennedy to paris and i've enjoyed it. >> reporter: this jacqueline kennedy is far more complex with a keen eye for the characters around her husband. and a feel for diplomacy and politics. >> i mean, things do change quickly and jack would never -- often say never get into anything so deep you lose a chance at con surveillanceation. >> reporter: she says life with jack was always fast and that people said he never talked about politics to her but that that was all they ever talked about. the tapes also capture intimate family moments. at one point john kennedy jr. walked into the room and asked what happened to his father. he answered barely 3 1/2 years old, well, he's gone to heaven. by the way, the book will be released tomorrow but nbc news bought a copy which comes with the cd of the interviews at a book store in new york city. we'll have more tonight. >> all right.
andrea mitchell in washington this morning, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> all right. a check of the morning's top stories and good morning. >> good morning, everyone. the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks went by as a day of remembrance and skrij lance. several disturbances on passenger planes received heightened responses and two military aircraft shadowed an american airlines flight when officials say three passengers locked themselves inside a bathroom. a denver to detroit flight was shadowed by a pair of f-16 jets after two were in the bathroom for an extended period of time. two were detained at the airport but no charges will be filed and an ex-nypd officer has been detained at the kansas airport. suspicious items were found in his carry-on luggage. cnbc's melissa lee has more for us. >> good morning, tamarin. the culprit is europe.
the big worry that greece may default on its debt. officials in germany have been meeting about how to shore up german banks should a greek default occur. also concern that france's three biggest banks could face a credit rating downgrade because of their massive exposure to greece. these latest developments coming as markets as you can imagine are already on edge after friday's 2.7% drop on the dow. tamarin. >> all right, melissa, thank you. ground zero officially becomes a memorial and museum today as it opens to the public for the first time since the attacks of 9/11. the families of the victims got their first glimpse of the memorial sunday. security was tight and visitors will have to get tickets in advance. it is 7:18. back to matt, savannah and al. >> the sign-up sheet for those times to go visit the memorial, i think the next available time sometime early october right now. very popular site. >> a lot of people want to visit what is hallowed ground. >> hello, mr. roker. >> guy, everybody, mr. roker. >> everybody having a good
monday we hope as we take a look and show you across the country. we've got showers across the southeastern atlantic coast, monsoonal moisture causing hit or miss showers across the southwest. across the plains, plenty of sunshine. strong storms in northern wisconsin into the u.p. of michigan. rip currents due to tropical storm maria a problem up and down the eastern seaboard. the heat continues all the way down into the southern california coast. that's what's going on around the country. good morning, a little haze in the air. live picture from the city camera. sky watcher camera showing the national cathedral in the foreground and the fog that we've had in the rural areas is dissipating now. it's a cool morning. down into the 50s in many locations west of 95. in washington and points east, low and mid 60s. later today in the mid 0s. a few clouds around. small chance of isolated thunderstorm west of i-95. tomorrow .
>> savannah? >> it was all captured on surveillance video and john yang is in benton harbor, michigan, with details. good morning to you, john. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this is the walgreen's where it all happened where jeremy hovan did stop that attempted armed robbery. some hailed him as a hero but walgreen's fired him. now he is making a federal case suing walgreen's for wrongful termination. security cameras captured the brazen late night robbery attempt. a masked gunman leaps over the counter and points a gun at jeremy hovan in the blue shirt. in response he draws his own weapon. >> i feared for my life and in self-defense i fired my weapon as i continued to move from him.
>> reporter: instead of being rewarded hovan was fired. >> no life was lost. no life was harmed and nothing was stolen. so in that context i think he was a hero. >> reporter: hovan was on the overnight shift at the walgreen's last may when two armed men burst in. one holds a gun to the back of another worker and the second jumps the pharmacy counter trying three times to shoot hovan but the gun wouldn't fire. >> the gunman advanced on me rapidly. he hurdled over the counter and a single motion and pointed his weapon at me. the gunman repeatedly attempted to fire upon me. >> reporter: hovan says he tried to call 911 and can be seen holding a phone in his right hand and a gun in his left. he says he fired three times not wounding the would-be robbers but apparently scaring them away. another employee recovers one of the guns. hovan says he bought his gun
after the store was robbed in 2007. he has a concealed weapons permit but admits he didn't tell his bosses that he had the gun at work. asked to comment, walgreen's said in a statement "store employees receive comprehensive training on how to react and respond to a potential robbery situation. law enforcement strongly advises against confrontation of crime suspects." hovan's lawyer says he never saw those policies and acted properly. >> he was exercising his reasonable right of self-defense in the face of a gunman who attempted to pull a trigger three times and shoot him presumably shoot him dead. >> reporter: those three -- those two gunmen are still at large and hovan's attorney says he continues to struggle with the emotional toll both of the attempted robbery and of losing his job. savannah? >> all right, john yang in benton harbor, michigan for us. just ahead exclusive new video of robyn gardner and the prime suspect in her

7:30 on a monday morning, the 12th of september, 2011 and couldn't ask for a nicer start to the workweek. here in new york, at least, we have sunny skies. about 67 degrees and a big, nice crowd of people out there. on this back-to-work monday. meanwhile, inside studio 1a, matt lauer along with savannah guthrie while ann is on assignment in iran. exclusive new video of robyn gardner and the prime suspect in her disappearance taken hours before the maryland woman vanished in aruba. we'll show you more and talk to star jones about whether this video might have an impact on that investigation. >> also ahead, george and cindy anthony open up in their first interview since casey was found not guilty and spoke out to dr. phil and he will be here to fill us in on what the anthonys
had to say. with their reality show now cancel what had is next for kate gosselin and her eight children? we'll talk to her about what the future may hold. >> but we'll begin this half hour with those surveillance videos of robyn gardner taken just hours before her disappearance. investigators are now poring over the tapes for clues. nbc's jeff rossen is here with the details. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah. look, we have never seen robyn gardner in moving video until now. her body language, her expressions, did she seem happy or scared in the final moments before he vanished? all of it is revealed on this restaurant surveillance tape and it is crystal clear, not just one camera but several angles showing her every move. we've seen the still images of robyn gardner in aruba moments frozen in time. but now for the very first time we see robyn on videotape in vacation mode looking carefree. just minutes before her mysterious disappearance.
and there's the man by her side, her travel companion, gary giordano, who would soon become the prime suspect. >> well, for law enforcement this is almost the holy grail. what you want to be able to do is see the missing person, the victim and the last person that she was known to be with. >> reporter: 3:07 p.m., robyn and gary arrive for lunch at a restaurant by the beach. gary is walking a few steps ahead. they look normal like any other couple. and don't appear to be fighting. another camera picks them up each holding a plastic blue cup as they're about to be seated. they walk out of frame. just one minute later, robyn gets up and walks to the bathroom alone. she gets all the way to the door wearing high heels carrying a large purse. then suddenly stops, turns around and walks back toward the bar. seconds later she walks back to the bathroom and goes in for two minutes. when she comes out our first look at robyn's full face, no
sunglasses as she walks back to her table off camera. 3:57 p.m. gary giordano walks out of the restaurant holding the plastic blue cup. witnesses say he went to his rental car and refilled their drinks with his own stash of vodka and orange juice. 4:00 p.m., gary walks back inside holding the cup. >> was it alcohol and he was just trying not to pay for drinks or was it something far more sinister that could have had something to do with her disappearance. >> reporter: 4:07 p.m., robyn makes another trip to the bathroom. one witness says she appeared sober but groggy. when she comes out robyn heads back to the table. 4:13 p.m., one hour after they arrived robyn and gary leave the restaurant. gary is walking several steps ahead. they're talking normally. gary even stops and waits for robyn to catch up. he's still holding the plastic blue cup. >> there is not a happy ending
to the end of this tape. >> reporter: what happened in the next two hours remainings an unsolved mystery. giordano says after lunch he and robyn went snorkeling near the restaurant. giordano claims robyn disappeared underwater and did nothing wrong and reported her missing around 6:00 p.m. the surveillance tape licensed by nbc news captures gary's behavior after robyn vanished. at 6:16 p.m. he reappears at the restaurant alone and walks up the steps shirtless wearing what appears to be a bathing suit and sneakers. he bangs on the restaurant door then bangs on another door looking for help. after working with police for days investigators questioned giordano at the airport trying to leave aruba locked up ever since. >> i'm hopeful that justice will be served. i can't lose hope and i can't lose faith. >> reporter: an aruban judge ruled that gary giordano can
remain behind bars for another 60 days while police investigate and build their case. giordano's lawyer in aruba has appealed but that motion was denied so even though he hasn't been charged yet he remains in prison and, of course, savannah, still no sign of robyn. >> jeff rossen, thank you. star jones is a former prosecutor and legal commentator. star, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's talk about this video in terms of the investigation and where it stands right now. how potentially significant could it be in terms of evidence, in terms of finding out what happened here. >> we look at it from two different perspectives. first as an investigative tool. law enforcement will definitely use it for that purpose. you could help to identify any
eye ory witnesses that could be around the couple and help to establish a good time line. if the person says they were at this location, they now have some videotape proof of when they were moving around. >> then the other aspect you mentioned is in terms of evidence that might also be presented against gary giordano if he is ultimately charged. but how does it cut because you look at robyn gardner. she does not appear to be under any kind of duress and see him searching for help. i mean do you think this is potentially evidence that could help him? >> well, see, here's the problem though we don't know enough about the videotape. you know we have chain of custody issues and technical issues. whether or not a court will actually see this tape is the first hurdle you'd have to get over. the second hurdle is what does it actually show? we don't know, was there real panic? it doesn't show indifference. it doesn't show fear. you can't tell from stills or a videotape without sound.
>> we know that gary giordano lost his appeal so therefore he will remain in custody until the beginning of november. how much pressure are the aruban authorities under right now to file charges in this case? >> tremendous pressure because the judge has actually said i think there's enough there to make this person a person of interest. but that time is going to come to an end at some point and aruba, you don't want to cast dispersions on the whole country. >> do you think aruban prosecutors feel the pressurher. >> thanks so much, savannah, beautiful morning. a lot of nice folks out here. we've got some weather to talk about about west. we've been talking about the texas wildfires. take a look, central california, a lot of remote areas they are looking at wildfires firing up there. fire fighters can't get to them. again, they've had tender dry conditions, very hot weather. a lot of these wildfires in central rural california are nowhere near being close to contained. let's check your weather and see what's going on.
tropical storm maria, right now, 165 miles north of san juan. the good news is it's going to get caught up in a trough in katia's footsteps, maybe cause rip currents and strong surf along the eastern atlantic coast. we have changes for the hot temperatures in the midsection of the country. 91 in sioux falls, 93 in lsa. memphis, 89. that front moves through and bam, on thursday, look at these temperatures, 64 chicago, 63 wichita, memphis. we're talking roller kester temperatures. that's what's going on along the country. good morning, shine in washington and arlington. you can see anacostia on the horizon. the sky is a milky blue. around the region, quite a bit of sunshine with the fog dissipating in the rural areas where it's only near 60 now. closer to washington in the mid 60s. later today into the mid 80s, slight chance of an isolated thunderstorm west of i-95.

say casey is in the state of florida but in an undisclosed locate. she's here because she was convicted of passing bad checks and has a one-year probation to serve. now, as far as anyone knows, casey has not been to this location where her daughter caylee's remains were found but five weeks ago her parents were here and at the time george and cindy revealed they've had no contact with her daughter since she walked out of jail to freedom. >> she's been cuffed in the driveway. >> reporter: dr. phil's production team says the exclusive interview with george and cindy anthony was set up with no restrictions. >> she continued to lie. >> she continued to lie. >> reporter: he was free to ask any question he wanted including why did cindy post a message on the internet that caylee was missing 12 days before she dialed 911 and first alerted authorities about her granddaughter's disappearance. >> it was on july 3rd that you wrote something on myspace. you say, my caylee is missing.
she came into my life unexpectedly just as she has left me. jealousy has taken her away. jealous si from the one person that should be thankful for all the love and support given to her. >> caylee was missing in my heart that day. she wasn't missing physically in the sense because i thought i knew where she was at. >> did you know something then that you hadn't even admitted to your consciousness because what jumps out to me about this is the title of this is my caylee is missing. you said this mother gave chance after chance for her daughter to change but instead more lies, more betrayal. >> i wanted casey to know how much she was hurting me and i thought she was purposely keeping caylee away from me. >> this family keeps its secrets quiet. >> reporter: if his opening statement jose baez told the jury she was not murdered which he said explained why when caylee went missing no one
called 911 for a month. >> how in the world can a mother wait 30 days before ever reporting her child missing? it's insane. it's bizarre. something's just not right about that. well, the answer is actually relatively simple. she never was missing. caylee anthony died on june 16th, 2008 when she drowned in her family's swimming pool. >> reporter: prosecutors said among their key evidence was what they say was the stench of death coming from casey's car, a smell even george and anthony choked on before dialing 911. >> it smells like there's binghamton a dead body in the damn car. >> what do you now believe the smell was from? >> truthfully to this day i don't know. to be honest. >> i don't want to believe caylee was back there but i'm going by what investigators have told me. all i know is that caylee is not with us anymore. i know that.
i know that. >> do you believe she was in that car? >> reporter: a little bit of a cliffhanger there. now, dr. phil says that he did not pay george and cindy for this interview. rather, his production company made an unspfeecified amount of donation to caylee's fund, a nonprofit set up. while state records indicate employees can draw reasonable salaries from that organization, dr. phil says it's his understanding that his donation to it will not be funneled to george and cindy. matt? >> all right, kerry sanders, thank you very much. dr. phil joins us right now. so good to see you. >> you feel comfortable they will not profit from sitting down and doing this interview personally. >> they've certainly gone on public record on -- in my interview saying absolutely not and, of course, 501c3 is audited
by the rhys and attorney general in florida so i think they're playing it very straight. >> a lot of people wondered during the course of the trial what it must have been like for george and cindy to sit there and listen to some of the things that their daughter was being accused of and you talked to them about that. what was their reaction. >> well, you know, it's so hard for parents to wrap their mind -- think about it. we all focus on the tragic loss of caylee, but it's so hard for parents to wrap their mind around the fact that their own child that they raised and sat in their laps and played with every day could do something so horrific and they're caught up in that. there's no question but the real frustration here, matt, is no one has been held to account for caylee's loss at this point because she was acquitted. casey was acquitted and no one -- >> it's even more, dr. phil. things were said about the parents, about cindy and george in particular. for example, it was alleged that george helped bury caylee's body and i know you talked to cindy about that. let's listen.
>> when you heard the defense in this indication say that he was involved in not in causing the child's death, but in events that took place after that, did it ever occur to you that he's hidden substantial things from me before. could he have done it before. >> no, not when it came to his family as far as casey and caylee. george would never have put us through those six months of not knowing where caylee was if he knew where caylee was because i watched his heart break every single day and i watched him as frantic as he was. >> how much anger do they feel toward the defense? >> a tremendous amount. i can tell you one of the things that comes out in this interview which airs tomorrow, the first part, not today because of the u.s. open, it's tomorrow, on wednesday, they had to sit there and listen to him say george
molested his daughter, that he coerced her and helped hide the body and that he confessed his involvement during an extramarital affair with a volunteer worker. they had to sit there and listen to all of that and, of course, they have never had a chance to tell their side of the story and i think it was very cathartic for particularly george to talk about those allegations because i asked him straight up. >> the idea also and heard bit that for 30 days casey anthony lived as if nothing was wrong. did you talk to them about it? let me play that clip. >> because we now know that day, 911 calls were made. she's being cuffed in the driveway, when she's in your home that night, she knows that caylee is gone. >> yeah. >> and she continued to lie. >> she continued to lie. >> can this family ever have a relationship again? >> well, you know, here's the thing. when you think back on it, they
went through all of this time, first the 31 days which were like and i'm a new grandfather and i have a grandson now just a few days old but i have a granddaughter about caylee's age and i really put myself in that situation and said, would there be a 30-day period of time that i wouldn't hear her in the background? i wouldn't hear her, you know, laughing, crying, calling mommy, daddy, something like that? this little girl was living with them and then for 31 days not one peep, cry, laugh, nothing and warning bells don't go off. she's got a job for two years, never saw a pay stub. this went on and on. how could they not see. >> you asked them about it directly. phil, thanks very much. >> thank you. >> i appreciate it. we're back with more of "today" right after this.

we are back now at ten after 8:00 and after six years it's a wrap for the goslin group. tonight marks the end of "kate plus 8." first a look back. >> action. >> the cameras have stopped rolling for one reality family and the most well-known mom of multiples and her eight kids reminisce on the show's finale. >> the last episode of our show. >> go. >> reporter: after months of speculation and reports of low ratings in august the cable network released a statement tlc has decided not to renew another season of "kate plus 8." gosselin took to twitter that same day tweeting there are many tears at the breakfast table this morning. >> might be a crazy life. >> but it's our life. >> reporter: the show began as "jon and kate plus 8" as they
raised twins and sextuplets in pennsylvania. the eight little ones stole the show but viewers were captivated by the relationship between mom and dad. in 2009 the show got its highest rating as over 10 million viewers watched jon and kate gosselin announce their separation. >> kate and i decided to separate. >> i am not very fond of the idea personally, but i know it's necessary. >> reporter: the show took a brief hiatus but the divorcing couple remained fixtures in the headlines and paparazzi. kate kept fans intrigued as she got a new look and took a spin on "dancing with the as far as." the rebranded "kate plus 8" focused on single kate as she and her kids moved forward with their lives. >> everything comes to an end. everybody knows that. >> kate gosselin, welcome back. good morning. >> hi. >> mixed emotion, right. >> very. >> yeah, you were here in august
and you were talking to ann. you seemed to have no idea this was imminent. how did you find out. >> not long after that interview, i got a call from tlc and i knew that we were, you know, in the deciding -- >> teetering. >> -- place so it was not a surprise, obviously ratings and everything else, so i braced myself and here we are. >> i guess a lot of people would say, okay, brace myself and we get back to a normal life because this has been not normal. you know, living in front of cameras is not normal and yet you don't seem to feel that way. i think there's sadness and also fear, isn't there. >> yeah, there's a combination of both. i mean there is some relief, but there's -- there is sadness because it's the end of an era. i feel sad for my kids because of all of the opportunities that they're now questioning what's going to happen. i feel sad for fans because
they're devastated. they're saying, you know, you're the neighbor moving far away and we won't see you again but there's also fear because this has been although maybe not my career, it has been the start essentially of my career and my job and the way i've been providing for my kids for six years and so, you know, it is a little scary. >> jon gosselin your ex-husband has spoken about the cancellation. we reached out to him. he was unavailable for comment but did tell radaronline that he is "very relieved that the kids will be away from the cameras." he also told another organization "that reality tv is not a career and it's time to get back to a normal life." >> well, it's a situation where, you know, jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids and working a regular job. i want the best for my kids and the best opportunities not unlike every parent. i think that to be a good parent is to work as hard as you can
and give them the best opportunities in life and this has provided that. >> so it sounds as if you're keeping the door very much open to continuing to work in television. would you agree to another reality show? >> you know, it would have to be the right one but i think at this point the best opportunity for all of us would be me continuing in tv as a way to provide for my kids. something that's exciting and challenging for me has been tv and, you know, i wouldn't be opposed to it. >> would you be opposed to including your kids again? would you put them right back into a cycle of that? >> you know, if the right thing came along, i think that we all are still in agreeance with it and i'm sure you will see my kids again at some point. >> you know, i was thinking. do you think in some way the ratings started to decline -- do you think in some way after the divorce that the viewers missed the bickering that they missed the dynamic and that that's what they were tuning in, as cute as the children are, that what they really wanted to see was a
couple disintegrating. >> you know, i think people watch sometimes hoping things, you know, ill will on people and that's unfortunate. but i think that also the -- the drama that was caused the tabloid fodder, i honestly think that played as much of a role into it, because it was drama that was unnecessary that was created that was made up and i'm still where i was minus jon, moving forward doing the best for my kids like many moms out there. and so i think that that sort of distracting factor may have gotten the best of it, as well. >> last week on the last episode a little fireworks there. you know, you had a pretty good fight with a good friend of yours. the nanny or baby-sitter had a little -- tough time with her. she got up and quit. what happened. >> you know, it was a situation where there was just that trip was so much even more stressful than you saw on camera.
there was so much more, you know, unplanned drama. the whole murphy's law thing and honestly that was a situation where many people have had family vacations wheres that sort of thing happens. you just don't see it on camera and i love jamie. i love ashley. they both know how i feel. i've apologized immensely and they're -- i love them. >> apparently have good feelings about the people at tlc. you thanked them for the opportunities they've given you. >> i do. i need to thank tlc for, you know, opening this door for us, specifically david, the ceo of discovery who has never lost sight of the fact that we are a family with hearts and a future and always protected us and taken care of us and i can't thank him enough. he's a great man. >> just in case people think you're vanishing from the planet you have a family website that i think goes on today. >> yes, kateplusmy8.com is a place where fans can follow us
so we're sort of not ended. >> keep us posted. i'm sure we'll figure out and be hearing things about what your future holds. thanks for your time this morning, kate. nice to see you again. >> good to be here. >> the season finale of "kate plus 8" airs tonight on tlc. the meg impact that fast-paced cartoons, spreks, "spongebob" might have on your children. i've been in your shoes. one day i'm on p of the world... the next i'm saying... i have this thing called psoriatic arthritis. i had some intense pain. it progressively got worse. my rheumatologist told me about enbrel. i'm surprised how quickly my symptoms have been managed.

today" television's influence on your children. the average preschool kid watches more than 90 minutes of television a day and according to a new study it's not only how much but what they're watching that can havage impact on their attention spans. dr. roge is a medical editor for "health" magazine and robin silverman is a health specialist. good morning to both of you. before we turn to you, robin, with good tips, doctor, this
study was in in "the journal of pediatrics" and said fast-paced programming can affect executive functioning. translate for us. >> all right. so executive function is a collection of skills that really govern how we behave and acts involving working memory, delayed gratification, problem solving. all the things we need to function well and in this study they looked at 60 4-year-olds and broke them into three groups. one was watching quote/unquote fast-paced television and second was slower paced -- >> what did they find. >> after nine minutes of one of these activities it was decreased in the fast-paced but not affected in the group that watched the slower paced or did the drawings. >> had we talking about long-term impact? >> that's the interesting question. it only looked at the immediate time after they watched the television but, you know, the question is does this have long-term effects and other
studies have shown television watching for children can affect long-term school performance, attention problems, even lead to obesity so, you know, there's a very good chance these results would be extrapolated. >> so the bottom line is that it's not just quantity of television but quality. i mean, robin, how would you define fast-paced television? >> well, in the study it talks about how often a scene is changed completely. so in the kitchen, in the bedroom, they're in the swimming pool. how often does that happen. fast-paced might be five to six times per minute. >> in fact, the study used an example "spongebob squarepants." >> exactly and a slower pace might happen every two, two per minute like "sesame street." >> nickelodeon puts on "spongebob squarepants" and says "having 60 nondiverse kids as not part of the show's targeted demo watch 9 minutes of programming is questionable methodology and could not possibly provide the basis for
any valle findings. how much television should toddlers be watching. >> they should not be watching any more than two hours of high quality television per day. and they really are watching a lot more than that. >> and my question is really what parents should do to kind of build this executive function. what are some tips you might have. >> good old-fashioned play. get them out there, imagination, creativity, get them listening to directions, following all the way to the end of a goal. they can also get into martial art, yoga, great activities like that. >> dr. raj, to be devil's advocate for a minute, you might argue our world is a lot more quicker paced than it used to be. >> i hear this argument all the time. adults are texting, on the computer and on the phone all the same time and thinks that makes them more efficient. when you focus on one task at a time you're much more efficient
at what you do so we're not preparing our kids for any good behaviors. >> a few seconds. robyn, if you want to wean your child off. >> get the tv out of the room. be a great role model. if you want them to watch less, you need to watch less. >> as a reward system. >> like make it more of a privilege. so when are they watching tv? is it in the morning, afternoon and also what shows are they watching. >> all right, dr. raj and robyn silverman, thanks. nate berkus will tell us about fall's hottest colors and how to use them in your home.

like a woman who does that. strong, takes vengeance, hence "goddess of vengeance." >> you did tell me one time you were towning down your characters in terms of what you had to make up for them because you were taking so much of this from the headlines of what happens every day in hollywood and truth is better than what you can make up. >> exactly. when you think about what happens in the world not just hollywood but you think about the whole weiner scandal. if i made a character up like that i would be laughed off the page and arnold schwarzenegger. these guys go too far and think they can get away with it and they do but never get it away with it in my book. that's why my twitter fans lover it. >> even as you mentioned twitter. there are a lot of current references in the books you mentioned. tmz, perez hilton, radaronline. are you wrapped up when you're home and writing for your whatever hours of day in your general life, are you wrapped up in that celebrity culture? >> i am a popular culture junkie. i love covering it all and watching it all and i've said
this to you before but i'm like an anthropologist crawling through the jungles of hollywood watching what goes on and writing characters people recognize. >> do you keep files of these stories because thee happen every single day. do you scroll them away. >> all in my head. i mean i write in longhand and as i write my characters take me over. i've written in "goddess of vengeance" the worst villain i've ever written. armand jordan. he came to me because i was reading an interesting article in the newspaper, not interesting, really frightening about this woman in another country being stoned to death for adultery and i wanted to create a fictitious country and a fictitious sin and show he had a lot of contempt for women and show what happens when this character comes up against lucky santangelo. >> do you go into demographics? do you know exactly who it is buying your books and television we're very much into that. is it the same way when it comes to books. >> it is and i love it because of the whole social media now i
know exactly who is reading my books. >> who is it? give me the average person. >> it would be a 30-year-old woman whose daughter is also getting ready to read my books and it's kind of i get the generations. i get the daughter, i get the mom and i get grandmom. the husband reads them too and then they have a much better sex life. >> those younger ones, though, while it's great because it rejuvenates you and keeps the brand going, they're tougher to shock, aren't they. >> not at all. >> haven't they grown up in a time where they've seen and heard everything. >> you would think but i get all these correspondences and go, you know, i was reading it under the covers and you taught me everything i know about sex. i think it's a good thing because i great write marriage sex. you know all about that. >> thank you. >> being a married man for many years. >> speaking about marriage you wrote the secret to a sensual, sexy marriage is knowing when to leave children, pet, family commitments and business affairs
at the door. >> is that not true? >> reallying abouted down in all that. >> a great elevator scene that people are talking about -- >> yeah, what is it with you -- >> elevators. >> you like scenes where people get caught in the act. >> i've written 28 books and written a lot of sex scenes so i have to get inventive and i do and they're erotic and fun and i think people have fun reading them. >> they play on your biggest fantasies or worst fear, those scenes where you get caught. >> or my truth. >> has it happened. >> i had a friend who got caught. i had a friend. i won't tell you her name. >> who had a sister named joan, yeah, okay. you talk about lucky yes's kids. >> max who is 18 and she's a wild one like a little lucky and then bobby stanisopolous santangelo. >> you're crazy like a fox. >> number one in england. it comes out tomorrow so i'm
fall color trends. time to replace the summer colors and who better to show us than nate berkus >> that's me. >> yes, that is you. host of the appropriately named "nate berkus show" premieres today. we should expect what for the season. >> it's all makeover, everything that out in the feel i'm back sort of my oprah day, always ringing doorbells and the first two weeks of the show are fantastic. it's a polished brand-new season. >> people get really excited when you show up. let's talk point colors of the season. i'll go through them we can talk about them. navy black, jade, rust, asparagus and bronze. now call me crazy, i'm not a designer but navy black seems like two colors. >> it's one color but good call. you know, in fashion we're seeing a lot of women wearing black and navy at the same time and there's a lot of clothing that is both colors at the same time. that is extended itself into homes. it's a huge color for fall.
>> the couch we show is navy black. you can really see. >> what's great is a neutral. an upgrade. decorating in a more traditional way. if you're contemporary it works as well. >> would this be too wintry later. >> i don't think so. i think you flip out with linen pillows. white with blew wilting. i never recommend a sofa that is a trend but will last 10 to 15 years. when you're picking a sofa color navy black is a new classic. >> your next big color is jade. you don't have to do a huge piece change but subtle accents. >> it appears in fresh flowers. but if you want something more permanent we have beautiful boxes, there's different pottery that you can look at. west home has great pottery. all online catalogs, an easy way to update a coffee table and feel like you've done something new. >> our next color here is rust.
>> the rug which i absolutely love, it's under $250 from west elm, beautiful color. nice to switch out rugs as the seasons change, as well, savannah, because it gives you a different feeling when you're walking into the space and all those natural fiber rugs and the sea grass and things like that, a flat woven rug when you can do a rug room size for $250 is a nice instant update. >> next color is asparagasparag. why not avocado. >> because avocado is probably the same color, spg, i'll admit that to you but avocado makes people think of the appliances they don't want anymore. >> i think of guacamole. >> which is a happy thought. asparagus, great color green, a fresh green and what i like about it, it transitions into fall without feeling like we've given up the sunny afternoons. still bright. >> you're showing them in the vases but the pillows, kind of an easy color to incorporate. >> crate & barrel, great thing
to buy on the weekend, add it to the sofa or the chair you haven't been paying attention to. >> final color, bronze. >> my favorite. i don't really like when i'm asked what trend colors are truthfully. i think it's designed to make people feel bad about what they bought last season. i'm careful to pick them to incorporate what people already own. silver and gold, we've seen a lot. bronze works with everything. >> kind of a neutral. >> completely, completely. >> what would you put it with if you're thinking some old colors. >> the lamp, i like that color, i like the mirror, it's from bed, bath & beyond. it's kind of a soft metallic that works well and we're being invaded. hi, guys. what's going on? it's a design invasion. >> yes, celery. >> avocado for you. >> nate berkus show premieres tonight. show premiers today.

afternoon or evening storms >> "today's money" can brought to you by bank of america. >> and this morning on "today's money" rethinking your retirement. a lot of americans spend their working lives building a nest egg for the golden years but some the advice you've been getting could be off the mark these days. we have a personal finance expert author of "the real cost of living." good to see you, carmen. we've heard so many of these tried and true ideas but you've got to be paying attention right now. >> you have to pay attention and have to rethink things these days. times have changed. the market has changed. it's six times more volatile than it has been over the past 40 years. think about it more smartly. we're living longer too. >> here we go. the myths we talk b first of all, the day i retire i need all my money. >> isn't this what panics when
the market drops. we saw this in 2008 and again in august, a lot pulling it out of the market. you have time even at the age of 65 but only if and only if the money that you have in the market you're not going to feed for at least ten, 15, 20 years. you should not have money you need for the next ten years in the market. when the market moves on a daily basis, you don't need that money that day. you teed to keep it in and you have the time to ride it out. >> as you get closer to retirement you should think about moving your money in something more secure. >> less risk. >> also which goes to the next one, a lot of people believe stick with the plan no matter what. >> no, listen, you can't do that especially with so much volatility. there are two ways you don't have to stick with the plan. you can't control the markets. you can control what you do. first withdrawal rates. the tried and true null has been if you withdraw 4% a year, things should be fine. the market is not behaving as it has the past 40 years. lower that to 3%.
make sure someone is doing simulations for you or you're doing it yourself online to see how you can switch out every six months to a year how would my investments are doing. can i go back to 4, can i go to 5 and adjust yourself accordingly and working in retirement. don't write off working. i know i will be working. but keep in mind supplement your income, just keep in mind one thing. if you're taking social security, check to see what the limits are. >> another myth is in this kind of volatility you should have just cash is king and gold aeven better. >> oh, i love hearing people say these are safe. okay, safety, let's define that. s is's something you're not losing your value, you keep your money that you have. cash, putting it under the mattress even or just sticking it in a checking account. here's the thing, capital gains tax on anything you earn on it, say you earn 1%, inflation, 2% to 3% a year you lose. if you keep it in the mattress you're actually going to lose on average 2% a year. $2 for every $100.
>> what about gold? these radio hosts are talking about gold and putting it in gold. >> here's the thing, gold lost $120 in a day. anything that can lose $120 in a day is not a safe investment. it's one commodity, one asset. be very mindful of that and gold didn't do anything for 20, 30 years and now it's just very volatile. keep in mind what safety means. >> paying off your mortgage early is the way to go. >> no. >> that's one of the myths. >> here's the thing. when you have a mortgage it's not just the interest rate and for many years that's all we had to think about. you see what the housing market has done. how much we've lost in the housing market. it's not just the mortgage but also the market. first year in and year out "consumer reports" found if you put an extra $100 in your retirement savings versus your home in the long term you always come out 1% to 8% ahead. also to the mist, it's really
bad to be house rich and cash poor. so if you put all your money into your home how are you going to pay for everything else? make sure you save money. the house is not a liquid asset. >> if i can ask you this, you know, because i see a lot of commercials aimed at seniors, these reverse mortgages. >> yeah, this is the danger and this is again a situation when you find yourself, you own your home but have no cash so they come to you and say let's do a reverse mortgage. you're borrowing against the hem, you can lose up to 20% on your home and on the value of your home. you can outlive your home and then you would have to move so what would you do. my recommendation if you want a little extra money toward the house, fine. please, whatever you do, number one, save for retirement. >> all right. carmen wong ulrich. thanks so much. we'll be working a long time hopefully. we've got answers to your most commonly asked questions at the dermatologist's office. later, all signs of fall. we'll help you gear up with a fashion road map. first these messages. ve this card. -with the bankamericard cash rewards credit card,

will thrng on "today's health," the top skin care complaints. millions go to the dermatologist every day with common conditions like acne, stretch marks or even scarring so what are some of the best treatment options out there. dr. debra wattenberg is a dermatologist and joins us. nothing is off-limits when you go to the dermatologist but the number one thing, acne, what is surprising to a lot of people it affects all age, not just a puberty or teenager problem. >> if you come into my office complaining with wrinkles or a rash acne comes into the combination and after between the ages of 30 and 40 people still complain about acne. >> what causes it. >> so acne can be caused by stretch or hormonhormones, gene.
cosmetics, applying creams and lotions, dilates pores and it creates problems for people of all ages. >> what do you do to clear it up. >> acne, the quickest fix look for sal sill lick acid, benz soil peroxide. you can start with some of the over the counter products that work will an there are systems that work well with cleansers and moisturizers designed for people with acne and if that's not working see your dermatologist. you might need some retin-a. accutane is always available for those and laser treatments that are fantastic to clean out the skin. one of my new favorites sucks the material out of the pores and it shoots a laser light source to kill the bacteria and works well. it's new, fast and helps people clear up. >> now moving on to scars and preventing and taking care of them whether it's a fall or maybe another kind of scar you've acquired from burn.
>> they come in all different sizes and shapes and colors. you need to address the issue. if you have a red mark, treat it with something that will help eliminate regular. a hyper pigment mark, you want to bleach it out. if you have a wound that's not healing you need to address that before you can actually address the scar so important to take care of them. avoid sun exposure. make sure your wounds are covered. covered wounds heal faster and can prevent scarring. >> is it possible to make a scar completely disappear or will it always be there slightly. >> depending on how the scar is formed will determine whether or not you can get rid of it completely. insurgency cal scars are hard to get rid of completely. you can't get rid of them completely. but there are great topical medications that get rid of pigmentation, products that contain hydro quinone and others that contain silicone that help
to shrink and soften them and laser treatments to get rid of brown spots and red spots and really work. >> that's a long list. obviously you need to talk to your dermatologist with that many options. >> i think if you're looking for issues with discoloration, might want to start with simple products that help hyper pigmentation he spefshlly after acne people complain of marks or after a burn, discoloration is there. you can treat that. >> hair loss. we hear about that a lot but it's a problem for women, as well. >> hair loss is actually one of the most stressful conditions for a woman to experience and the ones i see come in two forms. one that is alopecia which is genetic and they get a diffuse thinning by diffuse thinning and it is stressful but they don't see the hair falling out. the other type is acute which is where it falls out because of
severe stress and that might be stress at the workplace or stress on the body secondary to a surgical procedure, divorce, crash diets. and for those people they're losing more than 100 hairs per day and can see the hair follicle at the edge of their hair and need to figure out what is that stress that's causing it. >> you see products like rogaine and propecia. >> rogaine works well. i prefer the men's version of men's rogaine for women. you just want to be careful because the side effects is that it can cause facial hair then you get rid of one problem and create another and that's sometimes an issue for people. there are systemic medication as valuable for women to counteract the hormone component so that is something you can get from a dermatologist. the issue is you want to make sure you don't have a medical condition causing it so often with hair loss i do recommend seeing a dermatologist, things with anemia, thyroid
abnormalities can be easily corrected and prevent it from happening. >> let's move on to stretch marks. another big complaint. what causes stretch marks. >> stretch marks occur when you have rapid growth or rapid weight gain and during puberty when, you know, people are growing. their growth rate occurs so quickly, the skin stretches and it occurs in areas where there's a lot of fat deposition, along the breasts, hips. >> what's the cure? >> best treated when treated early. once they turn white you can't get rid of them but when they're red or pink you can apply topical retin-a. topical creams and then the lasers and lasers that help can scar removal are quite helpful. >> you hear about complaints about ingrown hairs. women are prone to these but you think laser is one of the best ways to deal wit. >> permanent hair removal is the only cure for ingrown hairs. if you have a chronic issue from
waxing because the hairs drop back below the surface of the skin and then they cause a foreign body like having a splinter in your foot, if you don't get rid of that air issue, it will persist. permanent hair removal can eliminate it forever. if you can't do permanent hair removal with lalser or electric troll cyst which works, as well. you might want to consider doing some exfoliation using warm water and a buff puffer, using things that will thin the skin, glycolic acid. salicylic as sit. over-the-counter products that can help that. >> a lot complaining about the little white dots on their skin. is this from the sun? what causes it? >> the white spots that are there are chronic sun damage from too much sun. people come in all the time complaining that they're vealing these white spots. why are they getting them and how can you get rid of them? you cannot get rid of them. they are from too much sun and there isn't anything that will repigment someone will come in
with white spots caused by a fungus and that we can treat and seen right after the summer and we apply some topical medications and goes away. >> quite a list but a lot of information. thank you very much, doctor. coming up, cool weather and your fashion road pap for fall. first these messages. new york ♪ ♪ concrete jungle where dreams are made of ♪ ♪ there's nothing you can't do ♪ now you're in new york ♪ one hand in the air for the big city ♪ ♪ street lights, big dreams all looking pretty ♪ ♪ no place in the world that can compare ♪ ♪ put your lighters in the air ♪ everybody say yeah, yeah ♪ yeah, yeah ♪ in new york ♪ concrete jungle where dreams are made of ♪ ♪ there's nothing you can't do ♪ now you're in new york

robyn gardner went missing in aruba. now investigators are poring over surveillance video showing the maryland woman just hours before she disappeared. nbc's jeff rossen has more on this with exclusive video. >> reporter: hi, al. we've never seen robyn gardner in moving video until now. her body language, expressions, did she seem happy or scared in the moments before she vanished. all of it is revealed on this restaurant surveillance tape and it's crystal clear, not just one camera, but several angles showing her every move. we've seen the still images of robyn gardner in aruba moments frozen in time. but now for the very first time we see robyn on videotape in vacation mode looking carefree just minutes before her mysterious disappearance, and there's the man by her side, her travel companion, gary giordano, who would soon become the prime suspect. >> well, for law enforcement this is almost the holy grail. what you want to be able to do is see the missing person, the
victim and the last person that she was known to be with. >> reporter: 3:07 p.m., robyn and gary arrive for lunch at a restaurant by the beach. gary is walking a few steps ahead. they look normal like any other couple and don't appear to be fighting. another camera picks them up each holding a plastic blue cup as they're about to be seated. they walk out of frame. just one minute later, robyn gets up and walks to the bathroom alone. she gets all the way to the door wearing high heels carrying a large purse. then suddenly stops, turns around and walks back toward the bar. seconds later she walks back to the bathroom and goes in for two minutes. when she comes out, our first look at robyn's full face, no sunglasses as she walks back to her table off camera. 3:57 p.m., gary giordano walks out of the restaurant holding the plastic blue cup. witnesses say he went to his rental car and refilled their drinks with his own stash of
vodka and orange juice. 4:00 p.m., gary walks back inside holding the cup. >> was it alcohol and he was just trying not to pay for drinks, or was it something far more sinister that could have had something to do with her disappearance? >> reporter: 4:07 p.m., robyn makes another trip to the bathroom. one witness says she appeared sober but groggy. when she comes out, robyn heads back to the table. 4:13 p.m., one hour after they arrived, robyn and gary leave the restaurant. gary is walking several steps ahead. they're talking normally. gary even stops and waits for robyn to catch up. he's still holding the plastic blue cup. >> there is not a happy ending to the end of this tape. >> reporter: what happened in the next two hours remains an unsolved mystery. giordano says after lunch he and robyn went snorkeling near the restaurant. giordano claims robyn
disappeared underwater and he did nothing wrong and reported her missing around 6:00 p.m. the surveillance tape licensed by nbc news captures gary's behavior after robyn vanished. at 6:16 p.m. he reappears at the restaurant alone and walks up the steps shirtless wearing what appears to be a bathing suit and sneakers. he bangs on the restaurant door then bangs on another door looking for help. after working with police for days, investigators would arrest giordano at the airport trying to leave aruba locked up ever since. >> i'm hopeful that justice will be served. i can't lose hope, and i can't lose faith. >> reporter: an aruban judge ruled that gary giordano can remain behind bars for another 60 days while police investigate and build their case. giordano's lawyer in aruba has appealed that decision, but that motion was denied, so even though he hasn't been charged
yet, he remains in prison and, of course, savannah, still no sign of robyn. >> jeff rossen, thank you very much. why do we have aflac... aflac... and major medical? major medical, boyyyy!

overfend but to be on trend. everyone wants to do that. >> some of these new trends are difficult for ordinary people -- >> exactly? so let's bring out our first model. two-way street. melissa and when you think two-way street. what do you mean by that. >> the fashion road map is relating to our road signs we all know and now we're driving our wardrobe into the right place. here what we're doing is mixing textures and prints. what you have to do here if you're going to mix a novelty print is stay in the same color family. if you see it's all the darker tones like navies and we mix the tweeds and stripes but never mix two of the same prints. >> you've got two different -- you have the different prints and different textures. >> that's what is so exciting. you can mix it up with texture and have fun with your wardrobe. between jackets. pants, all under $100. you don't have to buy every
piece. we're giving you great pieces but it's not about clutter or re-creating a wardrobe. these are grade wardrobe building. wear the pant with the tank top or sweater. >> or put it together like that. thank you, melissa. our next road map, wildlife crossing. i think i know where this is going. >> backstage everybody was flipping for this dress. number one, know how animal prints have been on the runways, if you open up any of your magazine, here we used a python print mixing the hughes o black, gray and off white and put an ankle boot. a black shoe or tight in your wardrobe for under $50 you can get this dress and a layer chain necklace. on trend. when could you not wear this necklace. >> these animal prints lets you get your mind around -- they are like a neutral. >> they are, a great print. i would always wear won.
don't mix animal print on animal print. less is more. take an animal print, do a dark opaque leg. i love as i said before the darker tights and 45, you layer on your necklace and look gorgeous. >> we'll all steal that dress. our next one with just road block and we have tiffany to model this look. this is a fashion we're seeing everywhere this year. come on out. >> we use our road block sign to represent color block. when we think color block we think the pop art kind of colors. this is a great way to take a classic pencil skirt because we work and need things to wear to the office but still need style. dark green tone, navy and black. you can layer on a black top, white top, a simple pump and you add a limb bit of shine near the face and on trend, made a great investment in the skirt and can build it if last season.
>> i like how this color blocking is understated but you do see some of those bolder color combinations that you've put together this fall. how do you know what works. >> well, on one color in your color block, focus on that. atranth, not distract. if you have a lot of multicolors, pick out your darkest solid and wear white. don't have too many things. don't have someone look at you and think, oh, my god, of a headache. you want them to look at you and admire you but not be distracted by all the colors. >> thank you so much, tiffany. hard hat required. you're saying hats are all the rage. >> i love a hat for one functional reason. my gray comes in quickly. all about the '70s. >> hazel has a floppy hat. >> we've done the '70s trend here. not to say dunnaway. we didn't make it break. i love the rich bordeaux color.
for $15. if it's getting cold in the winter, we don't need to wear a ski cap. a nod to fashion. someone who loves to have a look but -- >> would you wear hats like that to the office. >> to and from the office but during the day it might block your keyboard when you're looking down but not everything has to be for 24/7 all the time. $15 you can have it just for fun. >> let's bring all the models ott one more time and look at all these fashion trends. >> you don't have to overspend and still look great. >> stefani, thank you so much. thank you and coming up, we'll take back dinnertime with an easy meal idea and the whole family can enjoy them but first this is "today" on nbc.

a big batch of side dishes. make the bean salad. onion, pepper, vinaigrette and whip it out and put the salmon in the pan and have dinner. >> obviously it's about planning, just putting in a strategy and all about that. >> none of this is hard to do. all really simple cooking like all of our recipes are simple. a few strategies to get in your head and incorporate them into your week and find it's easy. >> they suggest you cook maybe three meals or have three meals on the ready before the week starts like on a sunday. >> on a sunday maybe make a batch of meatballs and bean salad and probably got two or three dingers covered right there. >> last but not least, i love this. >> you don't always have to cook. the other thing. what you do is make everyone make their own. all you do is put out the stuff, cheese, cold cuts. leftover cooked vles in the freezer, onions, arugula, that kind of thing. >> i love it. >> and put it together.

it's very expensive and it's very difficult work. they champion new work or else i wouldn't be there. i'm so grateful to them. 1,000 people on a gorgeous night in seattle came out to see it. they came to see and hear some of the songs. it was -- when people start to hear about the story of aimee semple mcpherson, they're hooked. i got home today, this morning, we landed at 6:15. thought i'll go to the little apartment, take a shower. i want to be nice for my co-host. >> what happened? >> then it was two hours from newark airport just to get to the lincoln tunnel just because of all the security. now i'm thinking, you get a little -- plus i was in a plane last night that lets you only go back about two inches. good night behind me had to go to the bathroom all night long. he's holding on to the back of my seat. i said really? >> people don't realize that in the movie theater. when they are walking in front of you and move your seat around

>> and it's not a shchweddy bal. >> we were on the show the other day. >> we had real schweddy balls ice cream. >> ben and jerry's made a schweddy balls ice cream flavor. apparently it became a thing. huffington post ran a clip of you eating the schweddy balls. i can't have ice cream so i can ask what it takes like. >> how are they? >> it's got fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls, too. how do you think it tastes. go out your schweddy balls fast. >> huffington post said we consumed something other than alcohol, which was nice. aol said, sure we ate schweddy balls, there was rum in there. and anna gaster tweeted, holy

and we were getting totally crushed and it was horrible. >> one of my favorite hoda stories. >> i'm dribbling down the court. a girl steals it. not only did she steal it, i'm flat on my back like a big loser and we are getting creamed. i do what any basketball player would do, i reached back and grabbed her ankle and yanked it and she fell down. that's not my personality at all. >> this is my theory, it is your personality. that's when your true character emerges. >> it's one of those you just want it to end and you end it like that. >> oh, my gosh. >> what is your favorite thing? >> i've worn this twice now. this looks on the surface like it's a ton of bangle bracelets, right? it's really -- look at this i think this is great. it's like a slinky. $49 at stella.come.
