we'll have a live report. and murray's moment. andy murray wins wimbledon, ending a 77-year drought by british men at the famed tennis tournament, monday, july 8, 2013. from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on a monday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> good morning, i'm savannah guthrie alongside natalie morales. did you watch wimbledon like this? >> the last game. >> yeah. >> it seemed to go on forever, and it was incredibly tense. >> it was. i had nails out to here. now i have nothing. >> i had a full head of hair. >> we'll talk to andy murray later on. mean time, new details this morning on that terrible plane crash in san francisco. >> that's right, the pilot, while experienced with other aircraft, had logged just 43
hours on a boeing 777 and had neverlanded one in san francisco. let's get right to nbc's tom costello who covers aviation for us. tom, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, matt, good morning. that's the crash scene over my shoulders. those lights across the water. we know that lee kang-kuk, one of four pilots on board this aircraft. you're right, only 44 hours in the 777, only flown nine times, but had nearly 10,000 hours in total and had flown in here 29 times, including in a 747. so what went wrong? nobody knows right now. the ntsb is hoping to talk to the crew today. we do know it appears this crew was coming in too low, too slow. they tried to abort at the last minute, but it was far too late. the so-called brach black boxes, flight data and cockpit voice recorders are shedding light what happened in the final seconds of asiana flight 218. during the approach, the conversations in the cockpit
were routine, no indication of any problems until just seconds before landing. at seven seconds before impact, a call from one of the pilots to increase the speed. the 777 was coming in too slow, below its target speed of 137 knots, just over 157 miles per hour. >> we're not talking about a few knots here. we're talking about a significant amount of speed below 137. >> reporter: just three seconds later, the crew gets a warning, the plane is about to stall, losing lift, and its ability to fly. less than two seconds before impact, the pilot calls to abort the landing, but it's too late. the jet slams into the seawall at the runway's edge. this image from an eyewitness shows the plane's final seconds as it twists and slams on to the runway. >> they were calling for more power, they tried to abort the landing. and unfortunately, gravity took over and they weren't able to salvage and get that airplane back airborne before striking the ground. >> reporter: moments after the crash as fire rescue crews raced to the scene, a united pilot,
already on the runway, urgently radios the tower. >> we see people and i think we see they need attention. they're alive and walking around. >> united 885, roger. you said people are just walking outside the airplane right now? >> yeah, some people look like they're struggling. >> the impact was so powerful. >> i thought before i left the plane that it might blow up and i might die. >> in your head, everything goes in slow motion and you just don't believe it's happening. >> reporter: meanwhile, our first look inside the plane, oxygen masks hanging from the ceiling, and some seats knocked over. while on the runway, investigators examined part of the tail, a piece of landing gear, and the charred wreckage of the boeing jet, looking for clues to what caused this terrible disaster. there's one more terrible twist to this story. and that is that now appears it's possible that one of the two teenagers who died in this crash may have been hit by responding fire rescue vehicle.
it's not at all clear yet if that may have caused her death. but the coroner is investigating that. matt, back to you. >> all right. tom costello in san francisco thank you so much. chairman hersman, chairman of the national transportation safety board. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> too slow and too low approaching the runway. you said the target speed was 137 knots and it was well below that. how far below that was it? >> you know, what we know is that the speed was slow. they identified that on the cockpit voice recorder in their conversations with each other. and we also have information from the flight data recorder that shows that their speed was well below 137. we have radar data, radar tracks, from air traffic control, that also has some information about their speeds. we need to corroborate all of that information, and we do want to have an interview with the crews. it's important for us to talk to
them before we begin to put information out that might bias those interviews. >> we know seven seconds before the crash someone called for more power, more speed. by that time, chairman hersman, was it too late? could any pilot, depending on experience level, have saved the aircraft at that time? >> well, we know seven seconds before they identified they were slow. but it wasn't until about 1.5 seconds before impact that they actually called for a go-around and we see seconds before the crash on the flight data recorder they did push those throttles up and try to get some power. and so we will be looking at the aircraft's performance and what was possible and how much time they had to perform that. >> according to flight aware, a company that listens to navigation broadcasts and sells data to the airlines, this plane or aircraft was descending at about 4,000 feet a minute. the average for an aircraft that size at that point of a flight or approach to a landing would
be about 600 to 800 feet a minute. would there have been some kind of a computer system, an alarm, an override, that would have warned this crew there was an imminent problem? >> well, that's all information that we need to gather. we need to take a look at. again, some of that can come from the cockpit voice recorder, but also some is understanding what was going on. what was the crew monitoring, what were they hearing? how were they trained? and what was their expectation as far as the performance of the aircraft. how much was automated and how much was hand -- >> you talk about training. it's been widely reported the pilot had will 43 hours of experience at the controls of the 777. but had never attempted a landing at this particular airport. at this stage in your investigation, can you say that there was -- that pilot inexperience played a role in the crash? >> well, we know that there's different levels of experience, and certainly in different aircraft types, we will see different experiences.
pilots will move from aircraft type to aircraft type. and you have to acquire experience and time. the expectation is that you have good crew resource management, you have good pairings of people who have experience that can work together, and we need to understand what was going on between these two crew members at the time, who was in control, and what happened on that day. >> and i understand you're being very careful with this. let me ask the question one more time. do you think the fact that this was this pilot's first attempt at landing in a 777 at that airport played a role in this crash? >> you know, i think we'll have to take a look at that. but it's not unusual for pilots to have a first landing coming into an airport. they fly all around the world, there are a lot of different destinations. what you want to do is have a crew that's proficient in the aircraft and works together well. that you have good crew pairings. that's important. >> deborah hersman, chairman of the ntsb. miss hersman, thank you very
much for your time. >> thank you. >> savannah? >> matt, thanks. now to the unrest in egypt. this morning, a new wave of deadly violence as military forces opened fire on a group of protesters. nbc's eamon mow month huh dean. >> reporter: this morning, the muslim brotherhood says their protesters outside their republican guard were simply praying when the military moved out of the barracks and opened fire on the crowd. they say that more than 42 people have been killed. in fact, the muslim brotherhood says that number is expected to be higher in the coming hours. meanwhile, the military for its part right now says they were simply protecting their republican guard headquarters, and that a group of terrorists, particularly armed gunmen, approached them, opened fire, and began attacking the soldiers. that's what led them to return fire. now, obviously, it is a scene of complete chaos at the field hospital there, lots of bodies, lots of casualties. nonetheless, though, in the
political maneuvering that is taking place here in the country, the man expected to become the country's vice president, dr. mohamed al baradi tweeted that egypt is in a dire situation in need of political reconciliation, trying to put pressure on the government to form an interim cabinet. that has been one of the challenges, one of the sticking points that has so far been unable to bring all of the political parties around the table. so for now, egypt remains without a government and the situation on the streets remains extremely volatile. savannah. >> chaos is the word there this morning. in cairo, thank you. theresa hines kerry, wife of secretary of state john kerry is in critical condition at a boston hospital this morning. nbc's andrea mitchell has details on that. andrea, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. this morning, she does remain in that boston hospital. after being flown there from nantucket last night. the hospital there reported she was in critical but table condition when mrs. kerry was brought in by ambulance from the
ker kerrys vacation home. she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, leader on environmental causes and head of the heinz family foundation, named for her late husband, republican senator john heinz. he died in a plane rush en route to a subcommittee hearing in his home state of pennsylvania in 1991. mrs. kerry has three adult sons from that marriage. she became known nationally, of course, as the sometimes outspoken wife of john kerry during his 2004 presidential campaign. a spokesman says the family is grateful for the outpouring of support it has received but asks for privacy at this time, offering no further details. john kerry was due in washington today to prepare for meetings here this week with chinese leaders. he was then expected to make his sixth trip to the middle east since taking office. but for now he remains at his wife's side in boston. matt? >> andrea mitchell on this story. as always, thanks very much. natalie is here. details on another plane crash over the weekend. a deadly one. good morning. >> good morning, everyone.
in a day after that asiana crash that killed two passengers and injured dozens of others in san francisco, there was another plane crash in alaska on sunday, killing all ten people on board. nbc's mike taibbi has the very latest. mike, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. a teen from the ntsb is scheduled to arrive this afternoon from washington, d.c. to investigate this crash that killed a pilot and all nine passengers. this was a small plane, what they call an air taxi. for many residents, flying across the state is common place because of a limited road system. police say this plane was fully engulfed in flames before firefighters could get to it. >> from the direction, i told my wife, i mentioned to her, i said, i bet that's a plane crash. >> reporter: authorities say the air taxi crashed around 11:00 a.m. sunday 75 miles southwest of anchorage, killing the pilot and nine passengers on board. >> i saw this great big column of black smoke rising, and it was coming up pretty quick and
real black. >> reporter: alaska state troopers said the fire that consumed the aircraft initially kept firefighters from reaching the wreckage. according to the federal aviation administration, the single engine plane was operated by radiski air, a local company. >> air charter or air taxi. and while it has a higher level of professionalism and regulation, whenever you see a 135 carrier, you know, have action, that raises questions. >> reporter: alaska state police say the victims have not yet been identified. for many alaskans, flying across the state is common, but it also exposes travelers to specific hazards, including dangerous mountain passes and erratic weather. now, the weather at 11:00 a.m. sunday when the crash occurred was cloudy with light winds. initial reports are that the plane crashed on takeoff, but that will have to be confirmed by investigators. natalie? >> mike taibbi following the story for us from los angeles. thank you, mike. dozens of people are still
missing after an oil train derailed and burst into flames in quebec this weekend. five people confirmed dead, the search on for 40 more people following saturday's accident. 30 buildings also destroyed. the bodies of 19 firefighters who died while battling a wildfire last week are back home this morning. 19 hearses carried their bodies in phoenix, 125 miles back to prescott. hundreds of people lined the streets to honor the fallen firefighters. further proof that auto racing is indeed a contact sport, even for the cameramen. take a look. this happened at a race in germany. the pit crew didn't get one of the tires on right there. the driver was waved out too soon and that wheel came flying off, bouncing down the pit lane and struck a cameraman square in the face. knocking him to the ground. he suffered a broken collarbone and broken ribs, but fortunately looks like otherwise will be all right. it is 7:14. you're up to date right now.
matt and savannah. >> scary stuff. thanks very much. stephanie abrams in for al this morning. >> hey, guys, good to see you. not good to see the rain we've been having in tennessee. we have seen a roof collapse now, just outside of knoxville outside of knoxville at a high school. looking at some of the rainfall totals in knoxville for the year, we're 20 inches above average there in rainfall. more showers are expected in the south today. the threat of severe weather is going to be throughout the northern plains here and that is going to be stretching eastbound so watch out for winds, hail and that threat for severe weather. we'll get your local forecast in just 30 seconds.
>> good morning. i'm storm team 4 meteorologist. temperatures this morning generally in the low 70s. washington at 74. and we're looking at a mix of clouds and sun across the area just a chance of an isolated morning shower. for the afternoon hours, still partly sunny but scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms likely this afternoon. that hit or miss activity otherwise muggy high of 88. savannah, to you. >> thank you. it has been five years since former new york governor eliot spitzer stepped down amid a prostitution scandal. now he is planning a return to politics. nbc's kristen dahlgren is here with details on that. good morning to you. >> good morning. 2013 may go down as the year of the second chance.
spitzer, who left office in 2008, is becoming just the latest figure in politics to attempt to do a 180 from elicit to elected. >> i'm asking their forgiveness. i'm asking for their support. >> reporter: the next comeback kid, eliot spitzer hopes so. the former new york state governor is launching a return to politics, announcing his candidacy for new york city's next comptroller. spitzer resigned as governor after just over a year in office when the so-called sheriff of wall street was revealed to have another nickname, client number 9. outed as a john in a high-end prostitution ring. >> now for the front page. >> reporter: following the scandal, he remained a public figure, hosting short-lived prime time shows on both cnn -- >> waiting for the next government check -- >> reporter: and current tv. spitzer's run means he would be on the same september primary ballot as another one-time disgraced figure in the midst of an unlikely comeback of his own.
>> i hope i get a second chance to work for you. >> reporter: anthony weiner is currently running for new york city mayer. >> two years after he resigned from congress amid a scandal where weiner admitted tweeting sexually explicit photos to women, he's taken an unlikely lead in the polls. >> we are having this focused pitch campaign. >> fallen politicians have two things going for them. americans in general tend to be forgiving. but perhaps even more so, voters have amnesia in the new digital crazy world, nothing lasts. >> reporter: so it's new york city voters' forgiveness and spitzer's future that could ultimately be on the ballot this fall. >> i said i can make this go and i'll give it a shot. >> now spitzer's first hurdle will be to collect 3,750 signatures of registered voters required to earn a spot on the september primary ballot. the deadline is thursday. >> thank you so much. we'll be watching. it was an historic weekend
at wimbledon. andy murray defeated the top-ranked player in the world, novak djokovic, to become the first british man to win the coveted tennis tournament in 77 years. nbc's keir simmons is at the all-england club. keir, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning. you know the british love sport like wick beldon, but we don't seem to winch, don't play baseball, basketball or football. we invented soccer, but haven't won a world cup for almost 50 years. you can understand why andy murray is the new golden boy. britain's prime minister is saying today he should be sir andy murray. on wimbledon's famous centre court, history was made. a british player winning for the first time in 77 years. in straight sets. >> the great british drought is over. >> andy murray beating world number one novak djokovic.
murray, normally self controlled and calm, climbing through the crowd to see his family and girlfriend. >> i just can't believe i managed to do it. >> reporter: the last british man to win was fred perry in 1936. so the british, known for their lack of emotion, went a bit wild. >> 77 years since the last win, no one is going to forget. >> to be there when history is made like that is just fantastic. >> reporter: in scotland, where murray is from, his grandparents watched and celebrated. >> i don't believe it! >> reporter: his rise to victory means more, because his school and his hometown, dunblane, was the scene of a terrible shooting. he was just 8 years old, 17 were killed. murray overcame to become olympic gold medalist, u.s. open champion, and now wimbledon. >> my mom and my family, and my team have seen me extremely upset after a lot of losses,
patching over some mental scars. >> reporter: last night, wimbledon winner's turned out in style. marion bartoli promised to get into heels to celebrate. there were even rumors after a wimbledon win, a wedding might be next. he was asked about marriage yesterday, matt and savannah and natalie, and said he hadn't thought about it. so maybe we can encourage him. back in the '30s, they played tennis here in long pants. can you imagine? which makes andy murray the first british player to win in shorts. >> you're stretching it now, keir, but that's okay. we get your sense of history. >> no prize money in 1936, either. >> that's right. keir simmons in london. we're going to talk to the toast of great britain. >> do you know how many rackets he had in his bag? >> 11. >> how did you know that? >> i watched the tournament. >> he just tweeted it. i thought it was breaking news. guess not no, ma'am .

among the witnesses, the defense will call perhaps as early as today, 17-year-old trayvon martin's father, tracy martin. when police first played a neighbor's 911 call for tracy martin, the question was, whose voice could be heard screaming for help? a sanford police detective wrote in his report, i asked mr. martin if the voice calling for help was that of his son. mr. martin, clearly emotionally impacted by the recording, quietly responded, no. george zimmerman's defense attorney, mark o'mara. >> i think cha tracy martin said wasp that's not my son's voice and i think that's information the jury needs to have. >> reporter: in court, the jury has listened to that tape repeatedly, as has tracy martin. whose voice is that? >> trayvon. >> reporter: trayvon martin's parents have not commented during the trial but did an extensive interview with nbc news a month before the trial began. >> i never said, no, that's not trayvon. but after going back to the
mayor's office and having a chance to listen to the tape for at least -- i don't know how long. we just played it over and over and over again. i knew then that that was my son. >> reporter: in court, trayvon martin's mother and george zimmerman's mother came to different conclusions. >> ma'am, that screaming or yelling, you recognize that? >> yes. >> and who do you recognize that to be? >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> do you know whose voice would that was screaming in the background? >> yes, sir. >> and whose voice was that? >> my son, george. >> george zimmerman has pled not guilty to second degree murder. he says he killed trayvon martin in self defense. savannah. >> kerry sanders at the courthouse, thank you. lisa bloom is nbc legal analyst. good morning. >> good morning. >> two witnesses, each who
passionately believes it was her son crying out for help. does that testimony sort of cancel each other out or was one more credible than the other? >> i think it has to cancel out. i don't know how the jury can possibly decide which of these two young men was screaming on that 911 tape. i don't think that's going to be a significant factor. >> how does the defense get around the fact if it was george zimmerman crying for help, as soon as we hear the gunfire ring out, the crying stops? >> i think that's an important point. they say the threat had been eliminated once he shot trayvon martin. therefore, he didn't need to yell out anymore. but zimmerman says he didn't think trayvon martin was dead upon shooting him. in fact, minutes later, still thought he was alive. >> so much focus on whose voice was it on the tape. does that even get to the central issue? i mean, if you were in a fight, presumably both men could have been yelling at some point. >> except that many witnesses have said there's only one voice yelling out on that recording. and you really only hear one voice. >> seems like the thrust of the prosecutions case is to put on all the different stories that george zimmerman has told.
and i assume they're setting up a closing argument that will highlight all of the inconsistencies. is there anything to you that really stands out as an inconsistency that's very material, that will matter in the end? >> let me tell you about a fact that i think is very important oh. zimmerman says that his gun was holstered behind him, in the rear of his right hip. he also says that he was down on his back, trayvon martin was straddling him, punching and threatening his life. that trayvon martin saw the gun and reached for it. i don't know how he could have seen through zimmerman's body, to the gun behind him. additionally, the gun in the holster are both black. numerous witnesses have said it was a very dark and rainy night. so, you know, that's sort of a physics problem, i think, that zimmerman has in his testimony. >> we may see prosecutors put it together, just like that in the closing. we'll see, lisa. thank you very much. >> thank you. let us get a check of the weather. stephanie abramses is in for al this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. and good morning to you at home. are you looking for a quick new hairdo? i found one for you. it's right here. what's your name? >> mitchell.

of aviation safety in this country. that's the last time that we had a mainline american u.s. carrier crash in this country. november 2001. since then, yes, we've had some regional crashes. otherwise this has been a remarkable period of safety. so the question now is, what exactly happened here in san francisco, and what would you do if you were involved in a crash? the images of the broken, burned-out shell of flight 214 are haunting. how is it possible so many people, more than 300, got out alive? is today's worldwide accident rate, only 1 out of 1.2 million flights will crash, and most of the passengers on board will survive. like the american airlines flight that crashed in jamaica in twi2009. everybody got out. everyone survived the continental flight that went off the runway and caught fire in denver in 2008. and the air france flight in toronto in 2005. >> we're going to be in the hudson. >> reporter: and no fatalities when captain sullenberger pulled off the miracle on the hudson in
2009. experts say so many people survived these crashes, because of the way modern aircraft are built. seats are now made to absorb much of the sudden impact, so passengers aren't catapulted through the plane. interior carpeting and fabrics, now fire-resistant to give people more time to get out. but getting out alive can be a matter of minutes, even seconds. at the faa research center in oklahoma city, they recreate plane crashes and the science involved in surviving. once the plane comes to a rest, time is of the essence. at 30 seconds, smoke can start filling the body tof the plane s fire starts eating into the fuselage. at 60 seconds, the burning plastics, fuel, fabrics, can all turn this smoke toxic. at two minutes, there is now a serious risk of a flashover with fire engulfing the entire cabin. getting out is a matter of life or death. >> you want to stay low with your head below the tops of the seat backs, use the armrest for
support, and come down the aisle, following the path lighting until you come to the colored lights which means you're at the exit. >> reporter: the key to survival, knowing where you are in the plane at all times, and being prepared to get out quickly. they call that situational awareness. i talked to veteran fliers who say they always -- and i actually do this too. i always look around to see where is my nearest exit when i sit down on a plane, just so i'm aware so i don't have to think about it in an emergency. some people actually will count the rows with their hands to that emergency exit so they know that i've got ten seats to the emergency exit, keep it in the back of your mind, just in case of an emergency. and lastly, matt, don't go grabbing the carry-on bagses, purses, coats, just get out of the plane in an emergency. >> good information. tom costello in san francisco. thanks very much. up next, in the wake of a very public fight, the husband of british nigella lawson says he is now seeking a divorce. and his reasons for the split may be a bit surprising to you.

simply abuse. the police issued charles saatchi a formal caution for assault. and now saatchi is saying this to a tabloid newspaper. "i'm sorry to announce that nigella lawson and i are getting divorced. i am disappointed she was advised to make no public comment to explain that i abhor violence of any kind against women and never physically abused her in any way. the photograph could have been her gary radniching my neck to get my attention as she has done in the past. my accidents were not violent. we're instinctively tactile people. i'm sorry she is upset. i'm more sorry this is the end of our marriage. i wish nigella the best for her future. she remains the most wonderful woman in >> what he says, she won't take his calls, respond to his messages. and the only way of informing her that this marriage has broken down and he's going to launch a petition for divorce is through the pages of a newspaper.
>> reporter: saatchi vehemently denies this was assault or he put pressure on nigella's neck. after the photos were published is when his wife after a decade moved out of their home. and so far the self-styled domestic goddess has said not a word to the press. what's interesting is that right after this argument happened at the restaurant, the couple was back together. they were living together, even ate out at that same restaurant a few days afterward. it seems that only after the publication of these photos happened, according to what he says, that the pr surrounding it is what caused this final split. back to you guys. >> bizarre. all right, michelle kosinski in london, thank you. coming up on trending, the fan moment from the wimbledon final that's trending this morning. >> also, we'll talk to the british drought-buster himself, mr. andy murray. and when will we see the first photos of kim and kanye's baby girl, north?

capperla capperlacktone. >> reporter: the process can layer by layer create the platform on which to regrow a new ear or nose or child's windpipe. >> so it's like a treasure hunt. >> yes, it's like playing in a sand box. you can see, we can build a variety of different things. >> reporter: with his 3-d splint implanted, kiba was finally able to take his first full breath. >> it was really amazing. his lung, which had been totally collapsed, instantly started inflating. it was pretty striking. >> reporter: as an added bonus, over time, this high-tech splint will simply dissolve, as kiba becomes older and stronger. >> we would like him to do everything that every little kid should deserve to do. >> climb a tree, ride a bike? >> climb a tree, ride a bike, everything. >> reporter: a shot at a long, healthy future, for one very special young boy. and a giant step into the future for modern medicine. for "today," kevin tibbles, nbc news, ann arbor, michigan. >> cute story. very cute. kris jenner showed me a picture

♪ we're back now at 8:39 with famed survivalist and adventurer, bear grylls, hosting a new reality competition on nbc called "get out alive" and a brand-new book, "survival guide for life." bear, good to see you. always fun to have you here, especially when you don't have worms or grubs or anything in your pockets to share with me. >> i was going to say, you scrub up well. last time i saw you, you were in full mountaineering gear in a snow cave at 12,000 feet. i didn't know you wore a suit. >> in switzerland. it was cool. this show, i was reading last night, although it is an adventure competition type show, it's not about who finishes
first. >> no. it's get out alive is not kind of a test of physical fitness and who is the best and the strongest. it's a much more character factory. and the wild revealing character. and, you know, i'm looking for people's journey and their growth and their effort. and all their kind of qualities that really help people survive. which is as much about humility and determination as it is about knowing everything. because these guys didn't know everything. >> so, wait. in other words, you put a team on the edge of a cliff, and it's not who gets to the top of that first. it's who shows the most determination and character and grit in achieving the goal. >> totally. and there were couples, so it was father/son, mother/daughter, best friends, loved ones and i wanted to see those helping the weakest, carrying each other's packs. that's what this whole "get out alive" is about. sometimes you need to push people to see what they're really made. >> as we are looking at the footage, it's clear, you shot this in a stunning location, south island of new zealand.
talk about some of the challenges. what did you put in front of these people? >> well, new zealand was great, because we had such a variety of terrain. and you've been there. you know what it's like. we have the high mountains and glaciers and rain forests and crazy weather. and you know, the whole series about putting people under the squeeze and seeing what they're made. and some people crumble and some people thrive. and i always said, don't impress me with your words, impress me with your actions. and sometimes you need to take people big places like that to see that. >> if we can rerack that last tape, i want to get to that. if you look at some of the terrain you place these people on, the edge of a cliff, glacier, icy-cold river. there is one thing called entertainment, another thing called sheer danger. and as you're producing a show like this, how do you draw the line about what you can and can't have these people do? >> well, it's a balance. and i think the journeys grow. and at the start, they were, okay. and as these guys learn their skills and i could see they were capable of it, we extended the journey, pushed them a little
bit more. but i said to them at the start, listen, you're coming to a big boys' playground, big boys' rules, i'm not going to mother you. i'm going to be with you. i'm going to back away. i'm going to see you how to do this. and that really was the appeal of the whole series, seeing these people who didn't know it all learn fast. and when you have to learn, you do. or you die. >> which is a little bit like playing off the book you have just written, as well. it's about these survival skills and how to make it in life. and i would imagine it would have been great if they could have read that book before they took off on this journey. >> well, the book is all about just lessons i've learned about life and by getting stuff wrong is the honest answer. but there are lessons from everest and my military time and how to come alive in the big moments and get your goals and not listen to the dream-stealers. and be enthusiastic and all that kind of good stuff about not giving up when it's -- you know, smiling when it's raining. and all of this stuff we know, common sense, but nobody teaches in school. >> sounds great. the show sounds great, as well.

book, "nowhere but up" and is now releasing a new edition for teenagers. good to see you. welcome. >> thank you. >> so your book is searingly honest. now you've written a vision for teens. why do you feel like teens will listen? i mean, i'm thinking about most teenagers don't want to listen to any adults. >> right. i think teenagers definitely, you know -- they don't always want to listen to their parents. but i think other adults sometimes they'll give an ear to. i know for me other adults would come into my life and speak to me. and then there's, you know, over 2 million twitter followers that call me mom and ask me these tough questions and they want to know. so i thought it was just a perfect opportunity. >> do you feel like a lot of those kids relate to you because they know of you as justin's mom. you say they call you mom. do you think that gives you access to them in a way that maybe others don't have? >> yeah, i think that i'm in a really unique position, you know? it's kind of like a bridge where the moms want to -- want to talk to me, because they want to know, hey, i'm a single mom too, and they can relate to that
aspect. and how do i talk to my teenager. and then there's the teenagers that say i can't talk to my mom, but you're a young mom and i want to talk to you. so it's kind of like i say, parents listen to your kids. kids listen to your parents. >> the book is very, very honest, as i mentioned. and you have gone through some tough times in your life. how much of that were you able to put in this version tore teens? because you've talked about your struggles with drug abuse, the fact that you had sexual abuse from a very young age. i mean, do you include that in this book? >> i do. i think, you know, teenagers today know more than we think they do. i think that they're -- they unfortunately experience more than we want them to. and i wanted to be really raw and honest. there's some rougher details that i leave out. but i really wanted to make it age-appropriate. but i also had, like, you know, statistics and discussion questions and things they can use to maybe go through with a parent or friend or something like that. >> well, let's talk about justin. of course, he's got some new
music coming out soon, right? >> uh-huh. >> and there has been some uncharacteristic behavior from him, something we're not used to. always been such a good kid and now we see stories about him getting into a fight with a neighbor or paparazzi. some -- driving too fast. do you worry about him? do you feel like, gosh, is he going through a troubled time in his own life? >> well, i think as parents we all worry about our kids, whether they're going off to college, you know, whatever -- whatever situation they're in. and i think at a certain age, the parenting style changes. and he's always been such a strong-willed child, you know. i talk about that. even in the story. and how i think i mentioned last time, his teachers would say "i have 30 students and 1. when justin is good the whole class is good, when justin is bad, the whole class is bad." but he had these amazing teachers and principals who would pull him aside and say "you know what, justin, you're a leader." and they would just, you know,
take away the negative and focus on him being a leader. and he would come home and say, "mom, i'm a leader." and that's what i want to share with these teenagers. >> is there anything about what he's doing now, who he is hanging out with, that causes you certain, that you feel something other than just typical teenager growing pains? >> of course. you know, i -- i talk to justin. you know, i text him and call him every day. as much as you can with an adult child that doesn't live with you. and he knows what i think. he knows -- we talk. and he knows what i think. and, you know, it's -- it's stuff that obviously i can't share with the whole world. but we definitely talk. >> he still listens to mom. >> i hope i'm still a big voice in his ear, yes. >> well i know you've got a lot of listeners, 2 million twitter followers for patty mallette, alone. the book is "nowhere but up." appreciate having you here. >> thank you so much. coming up next, we talk

>> that's right. psychiatrist gail saltz is here to help us sort it out. gail, good morning. >> good morning. >> can we define normal? >> i think the best way to define it is if you have a mood or behavior or something that is causing dysfunction, real dysfunction, in work, in relationships, in your ability to be in the world, then that we would say is abnormal. >> okay. >> but otherwise, lots of things. lots of things that people are concerned about really are normal. >> well, we put the call out to our viewers. and got some letters. one person wrote, is it normal to keep thinking about the argument i had with my once very close younger sister. on june 22, we had a talk about things and she started yelling at me so i stood up and left. i'm so hurt over this, i'm on the verge of tears every day. is that normal? >> what do you guys think? >> i think the everyday is the problem. if from time to time you think about it and you're on the verge of tears, fine. but every day? >> this is normal. it's called resume nation. which comes from the term ruminating, a cow that chews its cudd over and over again but
doesn't swallow. a thought you have about something in the past that upset you that you think about over and over again and can't stop. you both probably do it. >> i call it obsessing. >> women ruminate more than men and it's normal and often unproductive. but -- >> until when? >> some people do it enough that it does cause depression. before it's depression, it's still normal. what you can do, however, is make a list of what you can do about your situation and then every time you ruminate, do something distracting that is positive like going for a run or listen to music to break the cycle. >> pam from spokane, washington out on the plaza with a question. hi, pam. good morning. >> good morning, gail. i'm wondering, is it normal to laugh hysterically at a funeral? >> well, actually, pam, it is normal. it's strange and people don't like it, but it's normal. the reason is, the people do laugh at funerals is because thinking about death and mortality is very
anxiety-producing. and when some people get really anxious, they laugh. and then the more it feels like an inappropriate reaction, the more they laugh. because the more anxious they are getting. >> cue the mary tyler moore tape. >> exactly, exactly. so the -- obviously you don't really want to laugh at a funeral. so if that's happening, you can do something else to try to relieve your anxiety. taking slow, deep breaths. sometimes actually biting the insides of your cheeks actually -- something that sort of pings you that is like a stress-reliever. >> or think about that fight you had with your younger sister that makes you cry every day. >> i wouldn't advise that. >> here's another letter from a viewer. the love of my life left me two years ago for another woman. i can't seem to get over this and move on. all i do is cry over him. i feel as if i'm not good enough and will be alone forever. i feel as if there is nothing left in life. i don't know what to do. two years is a long time. >> a long time. >> at this level of upset. >> it is. and here's the thing. two years of thinking some time,
some day about the person you miss or anger you feel at being left is normal. but when life doesn't hold anything for you any longer, then i start to think about depression. so if this person is thinking about it all of the time, crying a lot, if they can't sleep, if they haven't been able to move on with other relationships at all, and they're not functioning in life, that's depression. >> why is that not ruminating? why is that different from the first one? >> other symptoms besides thinking about it. >> oh, okay. >> so if you're not able to function and move on with a relationship, if you're not doing well in work and that is depression. and let me say, that can occur from a break-up. >> finally, gail, is matt normal? oh, we're out of time. >> i'm sorry -- are you sure? >> it's a quick answer. >> no time for that. >> back after your local news. that. >> we're back after your local news.
i'm storm team 4 meteorologist amelia segal in for tom kierein on this monday morning. temperatures in the 70s. washington already at 78 degrees. for the afternoon hours, some scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms are likely. a high temperature today of 88. danella, how's traffic? >> still checking on earlier water main break shutting down lanes on jones mill road between flushing meadow terrace. over to the beltway outer loop still just a bit slow. not terrible but
>> i was here. so it was fantastic. >> i know. >> i was here -- no, it was a great thing. i was here serving the shareholders of comcast, which is the greatest thing a man can do. >> thank you, willie geist. >> there it is. how was chicago? >> great. after we spent -- i guess a month ago there, there just briefly for your show. a great place to bring the kids and experience it and see the sights and do everything. so we did. here is at -- navy pier on the ferris wheel. and we also did a little shed aquarium. >> isn't that amazing, shed aquarium? >> the ray exhibit so much fun. lake michigan, paddle boarding, the kids had a blast, the water was great. and we had a great time. we even went to a cubs game, fourth row in, fantastic. >> oh, my gosh. >> soriano, two home runs against the pirates. so i think overall, huge success. >> you just touched every base. >> i think so. almost every base.
home run for sure. >> good. we're glad to have you back. news to cover this morning. that plane crash in san francisco, asiana airlines 214 at sfo, the international airport there, still a lot of questions surrounding it. the man at the controls, we know, was attempting his first landing of a 777 at that airport. he had only 43 hours on the boeing 777, but nearly 10,000 hours on other air crafts. >> still unclear what the exact reason wasp. it seems like the flight was coming in low and slow, according to ntsb officials. so whether or not the pilot's inexperience on that aircraft, i think is still a question. but we did hear from an ntsb spokesperson earlier and she said that's all being weighed in, of course. but he did have a lot of flight hours on the 747. >> right. >> and a lot of other aircraft. >> i was talking to a pit expert this morning who said the 43 number while sounds shocking, only 43 hours in the plane, shouldn't think too much about
that, because he's had 10,000 hours total at the helm of similar planes and did a lot of work in simulators. so if this was, in fact, pilot error, there was no real excuse. the inexperience shouldn't have come into play. but you look at these pictures. and the fact that only -- >> two people. >> two people died. and we mourn the loss of two 16-year-old girls who were coming from china to study in the united states -- >> exchange program here. >> reports that maybe one of them was actually run over by an emergency vehicle? >> i can't even imagine. >> which is just horrible. >> horrific. >> but perhaps as few then as one person dying in a crash just speaks to the level of safety and perhaps the level of miracle that all these people got out. >> absolutely. you see the break-apart of that plane and the fire on the runway, and it is remarkable when you think about that. but asiana airline did release a statement saying asiana airlines is currently investigating the cause of the accident and will cooperate with government officials. >> we know the ntsb is looking into this. we'll hear a lot more about that story coming up. some lighter fare to tell you about.
eliot spitzer. >> yes. >> here in new york city. jumping back -- >> former governor of new york. >> announced he's going to run for new york city comptroller, keeping an eye on the finances in the city. resigned five years ago in 2008 after it was revealed he was a client of an exclusive prostitution ring. >> no one can forget client number nine, right? >> client number nine in the black socks no question about that. he's got until midnight thursday to collect about 3,000, 4,000 signatures, which he shouldn't have a problem doing. he told the "new york post", i hope people forgive me and give me a second chance. we'll let you read along the headlines. >> this decision coupled with that of anthony weiner is gold and the full employment act for "new york post" headline writou can expect a lot more of those headlines. i guess begs the question, can people forgive and forget something like that? and i guess we'll have to wait and see how voters, you know,
all comes down to how they -- if they show up at the polls and vote him in. >> i think there is no question that spitzer looked at the way anthony weiner has handled his problem -- >> and mark sanford in north carolina, as well. >> that anthony weiner could reentreprener reenter the frey and be competitive in the mayoral race and take it head-on, talk about what he did, why he did it, ask for forgiveness. we'll see if he becomes mayor. but either way, he has done better than a lot of people thought he would. >> certainly the front-runner, now, according to the latest polls. >> along with christine quinn. i think -- >> i think everybody loves a good comeback story. it will be interesting to see where this goes from here. >> yes, it will. >> we'll be watching and reporting a lot of the . >> so will the "new york post." this next story hits home. >> something we can all relate to. >> the pain of parenthood. the stir website has ranked seven common children's toys according to what's most painful
to step on. >> they did the research. >> scientific research. >> here's the deal. stepping on a metal jack is the big winner. 10 out of 10. >> i'm surprised, because actually these are plastic jacks. kind of terrible. but when was the last time you played with jacks? >> never. last time was never. >> i think my kids got some at a birthday party as a goody bag gift and i think they actually played with them. and i think i did step on one then. i would give it a 10 out of 10 as well. >> that would be painful. >> this is something i know very well. i step on one of these just about every day. stir gave it a 7 out of 10 on the pain scale. i'd say it's higher than that. >> yeah, that's an 8. >> i have had them embedded in place. >> you know what they'll do until you step on it -- sticks on your foot so you step a second time. crippling. >> double whammy. >> did you know that a stuffed toy actually got a 3 out of 10, because people think they have stepped on a family pet and freak out. >> i think, yeah, especially if it squeals when you step on it. wait, that wasn't my cat lexi, was it? okay. >> so what's your worst?
>> my worst, actually, is not a toy. but feeding luke once when he was a toddler in his terrible s. he took his fork and was like no, i don't want that. i actually had the fork impaled. >> oh! >> i had tine marks in my face. >> you had a fork sticking out of your face? that's unbelievable. >> pelted by a fork. bad. >> any photographs of that? >> no. thank goodness mary in makeup was able to cover -- what happened to you? you've got two little holes right here. i'm like,um, long story. >> i think that shows what kind of husband i am. wait, leave it in there. >> photographic evidence. >> just tweet it out immediately. >> what was your worst? >> my consistent worst are the figures my son george, 4 today, happy birthday. a soldier or woody from "toy story" lying on their back and the arms and legs up so you get
a four-pronged stick into your foot. >> i'm surprised it's not on this list, stepping on a dirty diaper. have you ever done that? >> why is it on the floor? is the big question? >> it's painful -- sometimes you're changing them and forget and you're just like -- whoops? >> you change them and sort of throw them around the room? lying around the house? >> you know, sometimes you're just not quick to, you know -- just sitting there. >> sure. >> and you step in it? >> calls into question, i know -- no. just the squishiness factor. doesn't hurt. >> your beautiful home littered with dir dediapers. >> no diapers, no. >> another one couples deal with. a new study that found men get -- >> don't you love these studies we find out of who knows where? >> found men get sick of shopping after 26 minutes. >> what? >> women tire of shopping -- >> 26 minutes? >> usually after two hours. because they haven't found anything they like. not -- >> have you ever lasted 26 minutes? >> i was going to say -- >> shopping? >> i was going to say, that's a
big number. >> i think two minutes is his max. >> i have to get out of there. >> start breaking into a sweat. >> i can't do it. that's why these stores have these great areas where the guys all sit and couches and chairs and magazines and now a lot of them put tvs up there. >> if they're smart, make it more like the espn zone and have it all set up, your beers and chips. >> and just kind of sit there and stare at each other. with our mouths open of the. >> i always feel bad when i'm at a store and see the dutiful husband sitting there, yes, honey, that looks nice. yeah, that looks nice. they're not even looking. >> your wife comes out like pretty woman, and wants the big reaction. and you're like it's great. go with that. let's get it, let's wrap this up. all right, let's get a check of the weather. stephanie abrams in for al this morning. keeping an eye on the forecast. hey, steph. >> hey, will. good morning. found some girls who brought the heat from texas. do you think you can take it back when you go home? >> yes. >> we appreciate that. we want to hit the tropics, though. we have a rought the heat from

[ female announcer ] the all-new windex touch-up cleaner. sc johnson. a family company. of those days where you cried at work or maybe you yelled at a co-worker. it is natural to express emotion. but is there a place for it at the office? >> a recent huffington post article got us thinking about that. we brought in nicole williams, career expert for linkedin, and a psychiatrist. good morning to both of you. >> good morning to you. >> nicole, we're moving to a place where there are more women at the top. >> sure. >> in workplaces. does that mean in all it's a more women-friendly workplace emotionally? >> yeah, i think there is some emotion that is acceptable at the workplace. but by and large, regardless of gender and regardless of the
fact there are more women at the top, i think crying is inappropriate in the workplace. especially if we're talking about the full-fledged bawl or full-fledged yell. i think that emotion is something that we're looking for people to have some control over. in a professional context. so, you know, while yes, i think we may see more of t it's certainly more of a discussion point at this point. >> there's a certain stereotype, i think, that women tend to show more emotion. all emotions, whether it's crying to getting angry and upset at work, as well. you think -- >> and i think there is some truth to that. i do. >> i think we can all say -- >> i think there is some truth to it, but i also think that nurture plays a big role, too. i think that from the time boys are little, they're told don't cry. if they get hit by the baseball, you're told you really need to be a man, stop that. so i think that we really can't separate that. i see lots of men in my practice who are very emotional. i'm an emotional man. you know, the fact that men get upset shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. i think that men are just much less likely to exhibit that emotion in the workplace, because they're fearful of what
that might mean to them and what their co-workers might think. >> we asked our viewers a simple question. we polled our audience to see if they thought it was appropriate to cry at the workplace. we have the results. 60% said yes, if it's done privately. 24% say no, if it's in front of others. 16% say never. you surprised by these numbers, nicole? >> you know what, no. and i think that, you know, that's the important part. in private. you know, you can have emotion in the workplace. you know, there are going to be moments, professionally, where, you know, you're hitting the edge. and you know, escape to the rest room, have a conversation with your partner at night. the problem is, with crying, there is a power imbalance. you're making people uncomfortable. and when women cry in particular, we get called on the she is just crying to get her own way kind of thing. >> not strong enough. can't go to the boss about something. >> yeah, yeah. >> but i think you just need to really keep in mind, trying to be what we call emotionally
intelligent, your eq rather than iq, this idea of being able to understand, perceive and control your emotions. everybody has strong emotions in the workplace, outside of the workplace. but you really want to be effective in managing that. so you can then get what you're looking for. because if you're yelling, if you're crying, much less likely to have that desired result. >> what about other emotions like anger? i mean, some say women are perceived as difficult if they're -- if they show they're angry, while men are perceived as tough and go-getters. >> and powerful. >> and powerful. >> yeah, there is definitely gender divides, of course. i think that anger, regardless, is one of those things you definitely want to keep under control. i think from a man perspective, you've got the, you know, the physical stature that can be very threatening, frankly. and perceived as threatening. and then you're right. for women, it's -- you're the "b" word because you've exuded some anger. anger is a tough one.
>> i think we might see a shift. whenever you're in a group, whatever that group may be, you have a perceived way of the way you need to act to be part of that group. if it's a male-dominant workplace, then the woman is going to feel some sort of pressure to behave in some sort of way. maybe anger coming from her would not be seen as appropriate. if you're a more woman-dominant field, maybe a teacher or nurse or something like that, i think there are different expectations. so i think that people will view some of these things differently, depending on the context in which these emotions are being expressed. >> so what we learned is your anger is okay and my crying is okay. we've flipped the gender roles. >> love it. >> good. >> thanks so much. great to see you both. >> good to have you guys here. coming up next, kitchen gadgets that are going to blow your mind. >> i can't wait, really? >> new ice cream scoop for summer? come on. or a salad spinner? >> all right after this.

cream scoop. >> you can take this one. a classic sgh-roll ice cream scoop, used across ice cream parlors all over the nation. >> what makes it so good? >> the scoop. and antifreeze solution safe inside. see how perfect that is? >> lovely. >> anti freeze inside? >> safe anti freeze inside which helps get the scoop through the ice cream. >> unbelievable. >> delicious. revolutionary, dare i say. >> sometimes the most simple and great. we love this one the best, for sure. >> something therapeutic about scooping out a perfectly round ball of ice cream. >> good stuff. back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.
how the weather is going. amelia segal is in the weather center with more. >> good morning. we're almost at 80 degrees in washington. the temperature there right now at 79. college park already hitting 80. we're looking at partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies across the area. dry for the rest of the morning hours. getting into the afternoon hours, some widely scattered showers. maybe an isolated thunderstorm likely. muggy with high temperature of 88. for tomorrow, a high of 90 with a chance of an afternoon storm. danella, how's traffic? >> much better now. travel around our area looks good along i-270. a live look making your way past shady grove road. no issues from german town to the capital beltway. that trip southbound is just 17 minutes. over to the 14th street bridge easy commute into the district. southbound on 395 easy drive. >> congress is
days off but it is now fun day monday and time to get back to work. >> get on the saddle. >> july 8th. and i had a lovely weekend. how about you? you were up at rehoboth. >> i was up in rehoboth where they asked for you, girl. >> ad nauseam? >> it was a scorcher. my mom and i went together. a mother/daughter trip. we had a blast. we saw fireworks from the top of the sands hotel. and that's my -- >> that's the end of brooklyn avenue, i believe. >> on the boardwalk. >> that's where we lived. >> on brooklyn avenue. that's where my mom and dad had the rehoboth inn. >> this was the crowd before the fireworks. it jammed all the way up. no room at all after that. and there were beautiful fireworks which i took a video of. you know how fireworks never look good on video, especially when you shoot it? >> yeah, i should have really just -- >> and i say that as a person who can't shoot video at all. >> i have to say that -- >> were all these pictures worth
taking, hoda? >> no, but look. >> wow. that was pretty good. >> yeah. on my iphone. so we did that. and then at the very end of it, my brother, his wife and daughters were somewhere else. they sent us a picture of hannah and ella. they are so decked out in their face painted -- >> oh, look at this. they are so adorable. >> it was a scorcher. were you not burning up? >> it was 100 -- >> the heat index it was well over 100. we can't complain. you know what it's like in death valley? >> scorcher. >> yeah, yeah. but the worst part, most people have air conditioning. you can get in and out of it. people's power was going off. people's power all over the place. >> a lot of people lost power. >> tough to sleep in that sort of stuff. i did get a little photo of -- remember cinnamon lee? you aren't the only one with a new dog. i gave cinnamon lee, look how he's growing. >> he's huge.
cinnamon lee is humongous. he was like in your hand. >> that's collin. >> is he full grown? >> i don't know. we'd have to find out. remember he is -- he was in my hand and that was collin. i really did the wrong thing. thank god turned out nice. >> that was a little bit of panic when you gave that dog away and the mother said, don't you give me a dog and then make me have to take it home. it turned out to be the best blessing. it's just so great. >> a lot of people who were home yesterday watched wimbledon. and a lot of people were waiting because andy murray was playing in the finals. he played last year, too. and a brit hadn't won in 77 years. all of britain was on pins and needles. the last game was such a nail-biter. went to deuce several times and back and forth. and all you can imagine was the weight of the world on this poor guy's shoulders. >> i'm sure they were pulling for him like crazy. >> you could feel the tension.
they had shots of people at london bridge and everywhere they had pictures of crowds all over. that's him hugging his mom. he just made history for england. you can feel the -- >> good for them. >> -- entire country just exhale. it was straight sets and it was beautiful. and then a lot of people didn't pay attention to the women's finals because nobody knew who those two girls were who were playing. >> i still don't. >> there was not a williams sister or kournikova or sharapova. >> any of those ovas, nova. >> marion bartoli ended up winning, the brunette. that was interesting if you were very involved in who these people were. what made news was what a bbc announcer said. >> john inverndale, who shall remain nameless. he inferred that bartoli -- just focus on him -- >> had to work hard because, quote, she's never going to be a looker. that's what he said. >> that is just so stunningly
ignorant to say that. >> listen to his sound bite. >> i just wonder if her dad did say to her when she was 12, 13, 14 maybe, listen, you are never going to be, you know, a looker. you are never going to be somebody like a sharapova who is going to be -- you're never going to be 5'11", somebody with long legs so you to compensate for that. you are going to have to be the most dogged, determined fighter that anyone has ever seen on the tennis court if you're going to make it, and she kind of is. >> wow. i hope he got in a lot of trouble for it. i don't want him to be fired. no, don't paula deen him, okay. don't paula deen him. it's not right. but how insensitive. >> what an idiot. >> i'm not going to be rude and say, you know anything about his looks. but why is it that it's okay for these men to say anything they want about women and -- with immunity. >> it totally drives you crazy.
she had a very classy reaction. >> she was very gracious. she said it doesn't matter. i'm not blond, yes, that is a fact. have i dreamt of having a model contract? no, i'm sorry. i have dreamt about winning wimbledon. >> i'm not a blond really either. you know what i'm saying? if she wants to be a blond she can go out and make herself blond. how many can go out there and win wimbledon? >> listening to a guy like that after the girl had the day of her life. >> i know. >> this is going to go down in history. so insensitive and ridiculous. >> what was the outcry from it? >> it seems to be the only thing people were talking about when it came to that match because they were two players we hadn't heard. >> now a bbc rep commented. he said we accept this remark was insensitive. and for that we apologize. >> that's a lame apology. >> how about he should say something, not let his rep. we don't know who wehe whe was begin with. >> can we talk about the papers
in new york? >> this was a big national story. >> do you guys remember eliot spitzer? okay. anyway, let's look at the paper. hold on. it says "here we ho again." he was caught with a prostitute and it was during his political career. and he ended up making a comeback on television that ended up failing. and now he's run -- >> an attempted comeback. >> now he's running for comptroller in new york. >> what does a comptroll do? they guard your money, right? >> yeah, you know, i had lunch with his wife after this happened. and was so impressed with her and liked her very, very much. she never left him until they are saying now allegedly they are separated now. and i wonder if indeed it's true if it was because he said i'm going back into it. i said i'm going to go back into politics and she said i can't take that anymore. that would have been perhaps a
reason. and i may be completely off, but at that time when i had lunch with her, she decided this was the man she loves. they had a life together, children together. and, you know, nobody should -- she's a beautiful woman. >> gorgeous. >> and nobody should ever judge somebody else's decision. we don't know anybody else's marriage. >> what's interesting about spitzer running for this office, he's competing against kristin davis, the ex-madam who supplied him with call girls. >> then they won't have to -- >> they won't have to waste time on pleasantries. they know each other already. >> what is it about these guys? it's so interesting. >> anthony weiner leading the mayoral race here in new york. >> you think about all these guys that do things that are guys behaving badly, terribly -- >> but paula deen gets fired? >> come on. >> i know, the punishment ain't fitting the crime. >> look at lance armstrong. lance armstrong has been banned from competitive bicycling. he got a lot of public scrutiny
for what he did. he went on oprah trying to redeem himself. it didn't work. now he wants to ride again, not competitively, but in this great bicycle ride across iowa. >> who doesn't want to do that? >> anyway -- >> how i spent my summer vacation. i guess for cycling enthusiasts, it's a thrill. >> here's his quote. he says, i encourage people, if they want to give a high-five, great. if they want to shoot me the bird, tweet, tweet. it's okay, too, i'm a big boy and i made my bed and i get to sleep in it. >> i get to sleep in it sounds like it's -- i get to -- that doesn't make sense. i've never felt his apology was -- i think it was something he had to do. there are certain people, and i have only met him. i don't know him. you can tell sometimes when someone is truly sorry and when they are sorry they got caught. >> i remember when he was talking about somebody in the group who he lied about and he said, when they said you ruined
so and so's life and he said there are so many people honestly, i don't remember how many people's lives i ruined. >> i'd like to see him do something positive with his life to benefit people. not just, i miss cycling. i want to be riding again. >> very good point. >> go out and help somebody and get a new image out there of somebody that cares about somebody other than yourself. >> no, i agree. it's a big question, though. why does it seem like men get a pass whether it's lance armstrong, eliot spitzer or anthony weiner. you look at someone like paula deen who said some things very, very inappropriate but isn't an innately bad person at all and she's getting totally maligned and she's one of these people who is a leper now. her business has gone to pot. >> it's really not right. anyway, you know what could also be true? >> what? >> george clooney might be single again.
yep, yep. he's not been seen with stacy keibler since march. timing is an interesting thing. >> they spent their july 4th apart. >> isn't he making that mountain men movie in europe? >> oh, maybe that's part of it. >> well, people like that are often separated because of their work loads. i don't know exactly what stacey does still. she does -- i really don't. i think she makes appearances. she does a lot of events and things like that. we don't know if it's true or not. but george was photographed boarding a yacht on lake como in italy with friends. >> and she posted a picture on instagram this weekend with an unidentified male friend in malibu. so -- >> it must be true. >> when they brought that up this morning we said, what does that mean? >> oh, but look at that picture. >> well, maybe it means a little something. >> now here's something. would you want to be driving down the road in texas and see
this? >> is this art? >> is this art or is this an ad? an advertisement for either that car or -- oh, you know what? who cares about those. let's talk about regular sex can make you look seven years younger. >> this doesn't look like art or an advertisement to me. there's a new study out. if you are having regular sex, good for you because it makes you look -- according to a british psychologist it makes you look seven years younger. it shaves time off your -- age off your appearance. and they say it releases a growth hormone which keeps the skin releasing endorphins and stuff like that. clearly someone is getting it -- >> then i should look 90. >> stop it. favorite things. >> we had such a nice weekend together. i didn't think i could spend four days with frank gifford. i did. we had a great, great, great weekend. thanks to our little friends who
joined us over the weekend. mine is two books. i read "that woman, the life of wallace simpson" by the duchess of windsor by ann seva. i knew so little about her but i really found the book fascinating. the other is going to the other extreme. this one is called "heaven hears" by lindy boone michles. she is one of bat boone's daughters. i used to double date with her, the archer brothers when we were both in our teens. she's an absolute sweetheart. her son fell through a skylight and had severe brain trauma. and it's the story of what they went through and how they survived as a family and how he's doing and if -- i think you'll find it deeply, deeply -- >> sounds like a great story. thank you for sharing that. >> i'm doing an encore thing for both of us. you introduced me to those pants called lizzette pants. >> they're unbelievable. >> these pants, by the way, they
feel like high waisted pants but they don't look grandma but they cover up the part that needs to be covered. they are slimming pants. they are called lizette pants. >> the most comfortable pant you'll ever, ever wear. >> whatever your size is, they -- they are a size smaller in these. >> i love that. >> you feel skinnier just by getting them. they are like 119 bucks but -- >> you'll live in them, honestly. >> those are the ones you wore in this morning? >> yes. >> what you got, sara? >> puffs fresh faces. i'm obsessed with wipes because of all the makeup we use. these are my new kind because they have an aloe and saline that breaks down the makeup. always have a bag of these right now. >> guess who is here with us? your girlfriend. >> kris jenner is here. she always has a lot of news. she'll fill us in on her new baby, her new grandbaby and all she'll fill us in on her new baby,[ male announcer ] and all this is bob, a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat.

[ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes.
do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.

♪ it is time for look at me now, the joy fit club. a woman fed up with her weight and decided she was going to get healthy. >> after changing her eeth habits, 29-year-old ashley lost 119 pounds. before we see what ashley looks like now, let's take a look at her story. >> my name is ashley. and i used to be addicted to food. food was always a comfort for me. i ate regardless of my mood or hunger. i ate when i was happy, when i was sad and when i was bored. my weight gain began when i was only 10 years old. throughout the years, my weight crept up and by the time i was a junior in high school, i already weighed around 200 pounds. in my early to mid-20s, i was in a string of bad relationships that sent me into a downward spiral of heavy binge eating. by the time these relationships ended i was at 279 pounds.
i finally got myself out of those bad relationships. i knew i needed to change, but i didn't know how. it wasn't until i went to my local plus size store and started trying on size 26 jeans that i had a real moment of clarity. this was a moment i told myself, no more, ashley. the next day my sister and i joined weight watchers. once i started eating much smaller portions and exercising the weight flew off. i opened myself back up to love and met the man of my dreams. he's encouraged me to keep going and has really helped me to get where i am today. i now work out five times a week and log all the food i am eating. i am doing things i never thought i could. i am running and even training for a 200-mile bike ride. if i can do this, anyone can. >> she seems adorable. with us is the leader of the joy fit club, nutritionist joy bauer. >> she has not stopped smiling since she arrived at 30 rock. she's unbelievable. i thought that instead of
telling you what she did to lose the weight, i'm going to talk about how she maintains the weight because sometimes it's even harder to keep the weight off versus losing the weight. three smart strategies. one is she reminds herself where she's come from. so she keeps a heavy picture of herself on her desk at work. and she looks at it -- >> probably the opposite of what most people do which is to be reminded, but, yeah. >> this picture empowers her 24/7. she also, you'll love this one, she allows herself a cheat meal once a week. so this is a fried chicken sandwich. but she skips the fries and has apple slices. but if she felt like the fries she could do that, too. it helps to stay her on course during the week. >> not to deprive. >> also stockpiles chicken breasts in her freezer. it's so versatile. you can do so many things. this is a balsamic chicken recipe. this is chicken just with a little barbecue sauce on it. this is a pound of chicken with a little bit of arugula salad
and then poor light vinaigrette on top. >> that looks good. >> each of these are under 400 calories for dinner. >> what was the third thing. >> one, two, three. >> the chicken was one, the perfect picture was one and the cheat meal once a week was one. three strategies. >> perfect. we'll bring ashley out. let's take one last look at ashley before. all right, ashley. come join the joy fit club. wow! hey, girl. how are you? >> hi. >> you look fantastic. >> good for you. >> how are you? >> good. how are you? >> how long did it take you? >> it took me about three years, but it was a hard road. >> and how critical was your boyfriend to -- >> oh, my gosh, he was everything. >> sometimes you just need the one person with you. >> that's one of the secrets to weight watchers is that you do it with a buddy. you have other people and so you aren't alone. >> a network. and also to share successes and setbacks. >> you feel like a different
