214. why did they fail to recognize signs of trouble until it was too late? critical condition grammy winning country star randy travis hospitalized with a potentially deadly heart condition. how he is fighting for his life today, tuesday, july 9th, 2013. from nbc news, this is "today," with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. good morning everyone. welcome to today on a tuesday morning i'm savannah guthrie. >> i'm matt lauer along with natalie morales. this is the first chance for a lot of us to hear from amanda berry, gina dejesus and amanda knight. >> they wanted to thank people for their support and their prayers. >> we'll turn to jeff rossen with more on the story. good morning to you. >> this is big because the women
remained in private since their dramatic escape. this was a big sur prize overnight when amanda, gina and michelle posted that video on youtube. we're told it wasn't a pr firm or lawyer telling them to do it. it was the women themselves that wanted to make this video. here it is. for the first time, the cleveland three with a message for you. >> first and foremost, i want everyone to know how happy i am to be home with my family and my friends. it has been unbelievable. >> going public for the first time and looking great, just girls when they were kidnapped. now, young women, taking the power back. first on the video, amanda berry. she gave birth while in captivity. that girl is now six years old. ariel castro, her accused abductor is the father. >> i want to thank everyone that has helped me and my family through this entire ordeal. everyone who has been there to support us has been a blessing
to have such an out pouring of love and kindness. i'm getting stronger each day and having my privacy helped immensely. >> reporter: it is a heart felt thank you. a love letter to everyone that supported them. that's gina dejesus sitting next to her parents. she said very little. her spokesman asking questions off camera. >> gina, if you could say something to each and every person out there that contributed money to your fund to help you, what would you say to them? >> i would say thank you for support. >> reporter: and of course, there's michelle knight. prosecutors say ariel castro got her pregnant and then forced her to miscarry. >> thank you everyone for your love, support and donations which help me build a brand new life. i just want everyone to know i'm doing just fine. i may have been through hell and back but i am strong enough to
walk through hell with a smile on my face. and with my head held high. >> reporter: each woman appears separately in the video shot july 2nd at a law office in cleveland. >> i don't want to be consumed by hatred. with that being said, we need to take a leap of faith and know that god is in control. >> reporter: as the girls speak out, ariel castro remains locked up. now charged with hundreds of counts including kidnapping, rape and murder. but this video isn't about him. not a single mention of castro or the house where prosecutors say he tortured him. >> i ask that everyone continue to respect our privacy and give us time to have a normal life. >> they are so brave. that video maybe our only glimpse of the women for awhile. their spokesman saying overnight they have a deep desire for privacy and don't want to discuss their ordeal with the media or anyone else for the foreseeable future. the big question now, will there
be a trial and will the women testify? ariel castro's trial date is set for next month in cleveland but the defense team maybe interested in a plea deal and the women's lawyers want this process to be quick and get justice. jeff rossen, thank you so much. >> let's turn to clint, a nbc news analyst and former fbi profiler. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i wonder your first impressions in terms of either the women's message or their presentation. how they seem to you. >> well, both i think. number one, this is a real testament to the human spirit. it's only been two months since the women were released. they walked through hell for an entire decade and yet, at least on camera they have been able to bounce back physically, psychologically. on one of the women, we know she has some hearing problems, prehappens related to a beating she underwent by her kidnapper. for any of us going through
tough times, we look at these women. we have to say, if they can make it, i can make it. >> this appears to be something they wanted to do. this is not something anyone put them up to. what do you think it says about their recovery that they want to in some sense face the world and say, hey, i'm a survivor. >> they need to say that and realize what they're doing is replacing memories right now. they're taking ten years worth of terrible, horrible memories and start replacing them with good memories so everything they do, everything positive they do, that takes the place, perhaps, of one of the over 3,000 negative days where they underwent alleged torture and were held as kidnap victims. >> they're asking for their privacy. at the same time, now their faces will be known where ever they go in their communities. do you worry about that? >> in a way you do. their faces are now going to be plastered over the tabloids and things like this. people will recognize them. but you have to hope that just
like you and me, you would see them on the street, you would want to give them their peace, their space and probably want to write a check. there's been over $1 million contributed to help these women bounce back. they're getting counseling, people are working with their families. but again, they have ten years of bad time they have to put behind them but they each have a bright future. we just hope that is really what holds out for them. >> saying thank you was a big part of their objective for sure. clint, thank you for your perspective. we appreciate it. we'll have a lot more from these women's statements in our next half hour. thanks. following new developments in the crash of asiana flight 214. they're returning to inspect debris for clues and interviewing the crew for the first time. tom costello is in san francisco. good morning to you. >> good morning, the ntsb talked to two of the four pilots on
board including the pilot at the controls and who was just gaining experience. the ntsb wants to know about the three days prior to the crash. how much sleep did they get? how much duty time did they have? anybody sick? anybody on medications? anybody distracted? we're also hearing from rescuers and flight attendants about the day on saturday. >> reporter: rarely do crash investigators get to see the actual violent moments of a plane crash and the immediate aftermath as the emergency shoots deemploy and panicked passengers run for their lives. as airport fire rescue crews begin attacking the fire with foam, city fire crews were coming in behind them to help. >> at that point, i went to a third alarm and declared a red alert. >> reporter: that means mass causalities. she was among the first firefighters to get inside the plane, fight the fire and search for victims. >> we had somebody that was partially trapped.
as it turns out, there was a small person stuck between the seats. >> reporter: police officer jim cunningham also ran into the plane to help. >> people at the run way were hurt and way far away from the plane was the end of the tail and stuff and people down there too. >> on board, the flight attendant was among the last to leave the burning plane. one of the slides opened inside the plane trapping another crew member. >> my brain was very clear and i planned what i had to do immediately. actually i was not thinking but acting. as soon as i heard emergency escape icon ducted the evacuation. >> reporter: meanwhile, ntsb investigators have been combing through the debris field and interviewing the four pilot crew trying to learn why the 777 slowed down to stall speed in the final 30 seconds of flight. >> about three seconds prior to impact, the flight data recorder
recorded it's lowest speed of 103 knots. >> the plane should have been flying at 137 knots at least. the pilot at the controls was very experienced on other planes but this was his first landing at san francisco in a 777. how did he and the captain checking him out allow their air speed to get so low. >> we call this getting behind the airplane. the flying pilot may have been overwhelmed and he lost the big picture. >> reporter: investigators are hoping their interviews will answer critical questions. one question investigators will also raise is whether cultural factors were at play here. where you had two seasoned pilots. were they reluctant to raise air speed concerns with each other out of fear of speaking out of turn or not showing proper respect. that will be one issue they look at as well. thank you. coming up we'll take you inside the 777 simulator and show you what the pilots face as they try
to land at sfo. another big story, grammy winning star randy travis fighting for his life this morning in critical condition at a texas hospital. natalie has more than that. >> good morning. the 54-year-old was rushed to the emergency room on sunday. he is suffering from a recently acquired viral infection affecting his heart. new concerns for randy travis, one of country music's most beloved voices in critical condition this morning recooperating from serious heart trouble. it's the latest in a string of disturbing episodes for the one time super star. >> have you had anything to drink today, sir. >> yes, sir i have. >> travis was arrested for public intoxication in february 2012 after being found in a parked car in possession of a wine bottle and no identification. >> you're going to go to jail for public intoxication. >> six months later he was found
lying in the road naked and legally intoxicated after a one car accident. he pleaded guilty to assaulting his arresting officer and was given a suspended jail sentence. >> i'm glad it's behind me. i'm looking forward to getting on with the year and playing some music. >> but the concern now isn't for travis's career but his life. his new trouble, a heart condition called viral cardiomyopathy. >> viral cardiomyopathy is a viral infection of the heart muscle. it weakens the heart muscle and can cause heart failure. >> this is a guy that two years ago cut an album with everyone who mattered in country music who wanted to pay tribute to how much randy travis mattered to them. you know the country music establishment and fans are wishing him well. >> travis' publicist says no other details will be made available right now but a lot of fans wishing him well this

and brutal blasting the country's civilian and military leadership. >> the report shows that the civil and military authorities were asleep at the wheel. they failed to do their duty. >> reporter: the then national counter terrorism director was in the situation room the night of the raid. >> i thought they were surprised by this. given the weakness of their intelligence system in many ways it was not surprising they didn't ever know he was there. >> reporter: also revealed new details about his secret life. he shaved his beard and wore a cowboy hat around to prevent being spotted from above. >> and nbc news heard from an official within the military that says we're going to find the leaker and he's going to wish he was edward snowden, stuck in an airport. >> those are fighting words. peter alexander, thank you. golden corrale says it fired the manager at one of it's

trial. kerry sanders is covering the trial for us. he is at the courthouse once again. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning savannah. when 17-year-old trayvon martin was shot and killed by george zimmerman a medical examiners report showed he had thc in his system. that's the active chemical in marijuana. today the defense plans to present that information to the jury. this is the case that's now days away from wrapping up and the question is still being asked, whose voice is that screaming for help on that 911 call. in court monday, trayvon martin's father tracy martin says he believes his son was screaming for help on the 911 call. >> sow think he's yelling help? >> yes. >> reporter: but police detective chris serino testified he got a different answer when he asked whose voice was that.
i asked if that was his son yelling for help. >> what was his response? >> he was -- it was more of a verbal and nonverbal. he looked away, and under his breath, as i interrupted it said no. >> tracy martin says he didn't say it that way. >> i didn't tell him no that wasn't trayvon. i pushed away from the table and just kind of shook my head and said i can't tell. >> the prosecutor asked tracy martin what was going through his mind when he heard the 911 call. >> i was listening to my son's last cry for help. i was listening to his life being taken. and i was coming trying to come to grips that trayvon was here no more. >> the defense called five of george zimmerman's friends. each was asked who was screaming for help on the call. >> george.
>> yeah, definitely george. >> george zimmerman's voice. >> i thought it was george. >> there's absolutely no doubt in my mind that is george zimmerman. >> john donnelly told the court zimmerman is like a son to him. >> you would agree there's a bias there on your behalf of george zimmerman, correct? because of your friendship. >> he is my very dear friend. >> george zimmerman has pled not guilty to second degree murder. he says he shot trayvon martin in self-defense. savannah. >> all right. kerry sanders in sanford, florida, thank you. savannah, thanks, more on the crash. the tragic crash of asiana flight 214. the pilot was making his first landing in a 777 at san francisco's airport. this morning we're able to give you a better idea of what the crew was facing in the cockpit. >> as investigators sift through the wreckage of flight 214 they're also trying to get inside the cockpit and the minds
of the crew at the time of the crash. >> we're looking at what they were doing and we want to understand why they were doing it. >> as the approach run way 28-l on saturday the pilot had a view similar to this one. >> you're flying manually now. >> all right. >> a view i got to experience firsthand in a 777 flight simulator in 2007. like my simulated landing, the descent was routine and uneventful until something went wrong in the final seconds. >> too low, too slow. that's usually a disasterous outcome. >> he is a former 777 pilot who made hundreds of landings at the san francisco airport. >> most of us would say this is my first landing in san francisco, watch me, make sure i don't do anything stupid. >> this would be a normal approach. >> reporter: in this simulation he gives us an idea what the pilot of flight 214 was seeing as he approached the same run
way. the flight data recorded shows a normal speed of 154 miles per hour at 500 feet but a few seconds later it drops to 136 miles per hour. well below what it should have been at 200 feet. >> i am not over the run way. >> yeah you are. >> reporter: at the same altitude in my simulated landing i had a hard time gauging my position. he says he tells pilots when that happens so close to the ground, it's always better to be safe. >> if you're not 100% positive about this approach, go around. >> reporter: cockpit voice recordings indicate he made the decision to go around but by the time the engines accelerated it was too late. >> as you watch that, a spokesperson for the airline asiana said that any discussion that inexperience played a role in this part on the part of the
pilot is inaccurate. they talk about how many hours in any plane this pilot had. >> more than 10,000. >> and 43 hours behind the controls of a 777. but as you come in, it's difficult to gauge your surroundings. >> it's nerve racking. it's an exact science being able to land that plane. >> no question. >> and the investigation is far from complete. let's take a turn and get a check of the weather. mike bettis is in for al this week. good morning to you. >> good morning and we say good morning and move over new york for idaho dairy farmers. favorite thing in new york. >> broadway shows. >> shopping. >> you. what's happening with your weather. happenings in the atlantic including tropical storm kman chantal. making its way over the southeast coast of the united states by early next weekend. could come near puerto rico.

ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. ask your doctor if humira can work for you. this is humira at work. of "just another prescription" and "sweet, something just for me." with walgreens balance rewards, everyday trips to the pharmacy earn you 500 points for each prescription you fill. and 500 more for immunizations. points you can redeem for, well, almost anything. get five dollars in rewards points when you fill 10 prescriptions, right here. at the corner of happy and healthy.

they feel supported by the community and that is extremely important when you talk about the concept of resilience. some people are born with more resilience. we hope these three women were. but if they were more sensitive and had issues that they came into this with even that makes this trauma more difficult for them and less survivable, they can build certain coping tools and that's what we're seeing here. the money, right? the references to their faith. >> yeah. >> and we know that faith and religion are very important when it comes to loss. surrounded by parents. that's very, very important. >> what do you think -- i mean, i have been contemplating this morning the fact that they want their privacy and yet they have come out and now everyone will know their faces so i guess i worry, does that mean some of their privacy will be compromised. do you think this was important for them, though, in terms of their own confidence building to be able to come out and show the
world their faces and say we're strong? we're survivors? >> yes, i think this was intelligent first of all because i think this will keep the media at bay. they weren't crying. they weren't looking traumatized. they weren't talking about their captor. all of that was very smart because frankly it makes us less interested. that's sad to say about america. but we gravitate toward the disturbing story and they have made this less disturbing. so that was smart of them and i do think that it's affirming, you know, we want them to have inner strength and real strength and the question will be can they have intimacy later but there is a certain fake it until you make it and believing what they're saying that they can do this. that's really useful to them right now. >> well, i think it's the fact that they are able to speak at all and do what they were doing this morning i think is just a testament to them. >> real strength. >> thank you gail. nice to get your perspective. coming up next, we'll take a

league and it was like great. i could see him come alive. >> reporter: somehow, ball's arm had healed and still had some heat. >> how do you explain that? >> i don't know. i don't know. but i'm glad it's happened. i'll tell you that. >> reporter: today a try out with the st. paul saints, an independent minor league team could be his break into the big leagues. >> take a break. >> reporter: his wife is in the stands and his dad is on his mind. >> i try to think about what he always told me, throw strikes. >> reporter: which he does. over and over and over again. some clocking in close to 80 miles per hour against batters young enough to be his kids. >> threw a lot of strikes. he knows what he is doing. >> he could get hitters out in this league. i don't know if he could do it consistently but it's impressive. i'm only 42 and i don't think i could do what he is doing. >> reporter: finally paul's try
out is done but his not drive to keep his dream alive. >> will he keep trying out? >> he'll keep trying out. there's no doubt he'll keep trying out. that's just him. >> i'll play until they have to take me out of there completely. i'll be playing baseball. >> now, while the st. paul saints did not have room for him on his roster this season but he kept trying out and last week he got signed to another independent team in new mexico. he pitches his first inning next week. if he does well there could be a longer contract in his future. >> there's so many similarities between his story and the movie the rookie. >> absolutely. >> i have catches with my son on the weekend and hit the advil hard after that. i can only imagine the pain he's in after he pitches. >> he is no stranger to an ice bath and a lot of advil but he says he loves it. >> good for him. nice to see you. up next, a new recipe for
success. sandra lee opens up about her debut novel. but first this is "today" on nbc. hey, buddy? oh, hey, flo. you want to see something cool? snapshot, from progressive. my insurance company told me not to talk to people like you. you always do what they tell you? no... try it, and see what your good driving can save you. you don't even have to switch. unless you're scared. i'm not scared, it's... you know we can still see you. no, you can't. pretty sure we can... try snapshot today -- no pressure.
we are back at 8:43. for decades sandra lee has been making life sweeter with four cooking shows on the food network and recently she published her 25th cook book but that is not enough. she is shedding her a problem with a different kind of cap releasing her very novel called the recipe book. good morning to you. >> it's one thing to write recipes. was this difficult to do? >> it was interesting because when disney first came to me and asked me to write a novel i was shocked because no one in my genere had done it before which made it great for me. as the stories grew and the
characters grew the recipes got smaller and smaller and smaller. there's about a dozen in there now but they have to do with characters in the book. >> we can't do a segment without food with you but there are recipes in the book. >> yes. >> it's really -- it's a story of a single mom trying to put her life back together and she meets a guy. some people have seen some similarities between this guy and your boyfriend? >> well, the story is about grace. she is a heroin and she is raising a 15-year-old daughter by herself and went through a traumatic divorce and she does have a new love in her life. i'm not going to give away secrets but the book is about women and generations of women coming together and the pains of what a family goes through. not just the generations that are here on the earth today but the ones that came before us. it's also about girlfriends. there's a girlfriend in the book that's the best friend from high
school who i won't give away the punch line but she says to her girlfriend grace, you know, life is not a dress rehearsal for show choir. it is opening night every day of your life and that's what this book is about. it's about what roads to take and when you come to a fork in the road where do you go and when you get to the end of that road what does it look like and being thoughtful and thinking things threw and not just your family who is your family but your family who is your friends and who you spend your time and life with. >> it's not meant to be auto biographical but the wall street journal says he is a rugged outdoor man. he is a midwesterner who adores cooking and works in tv and dotes on the family pet. >> she is not in front of the camera. i never wanted to be in front of the camera either but both -- i have to say, the character, the love interest and my sweetheart, are very attractive men.
>> there was a little inspiration there. >> it was easy. when you write a novel you pull from your life experiences. so there is a character named lorraine in the book and my grandmother was from new london, wisconsin which is where the book takes place. >> did you visit it and try to get that inspiration. >> i didn't. i have all the research. i have pictures from the early 19 hundreds when the first logging was taking place and so i looked through alabama of my grandmother's beautiful things. we have property deeds, and that's how new london came to life in my mind. it's a fantasy place in my mind and even though i went to high school and college in wisconsin, new london to me is up there with places that i look forward to visiting. >> you have an inspiring story yourself. you're somebody that grew up, you had a tough childhood. helped to raise your own four siblings. there were times when i know you felt people were saying you
can't do this -- this semihomemade cooking, this won't work. how did you manage through that time. did you ever imagine your life would turn out as it did? >> that's what the book speaks about. there's a scene in the book where grace's mom is talking to her and is very upset with her mother for 16 years and all of these secrets of this family are in this recipe box and it's really about focussing on the generations in front of you and that came before you and learning the lessons they didn't learn and passing on the good ones you can. i just took my nieces and nephews for their high school graduation present to europe for three weeks. 8 kids for three weeks in europe, three countries, i don't know what i was thinking. talk about overachieving. >> you need a vacation from your vacation. >> but it's about teaching them history and it's about teaching them what life can be. if you choose very specific roads and that's why education is so important and that's why, you know, being a good family
role model and insulating kids as they're growing up. i have a very, very specific way i think kids should be raised and that is loving and supported and insulating and giving them all the knowledge you have and including them, not excluding them. >> we are anxious to see the book. the recipe box is in stores now. thank you so much. appreciate it. coming up next, we'll go head to head and snail to snail against ryan reynolds in the race up the building for "turbo." they're already practicing. but first, this is "today" on nbc.
all right. we're back now. we have been counting down to our big ski ball competition all morning long. the waiting is over. it's time to get started. >> it is. ryan reynolds will be manning turbo, your nail from the movie. we have an expert here. an nbc sports commentator. he is going to call the race. at this point, lee, i have to turn it over to you. >> we're ready to go. this is going to be a lot of fun. the guys that do it for reel behind us. the indy car series champion and the three time indy 500 winner and this year's winner tony kanaan. willie and natalie cheated a little bit before. they got practice. so matt at the far end. savannah, ready to go? >> am i ever. the reigning champ ready to wave
the green flag for the turbo 500. 3, 2, 1, go. >> all right. who is going to score the most point? ryan's in the middle. he's looking really good. good work for natalie. we need more. we need more. turbo off to a good start. the one we wanted to win is winning. he's doing a great job. what do you think. >> they're doing a good job. look at ryan -- ryan is on it. >> he's the man. >> he raced motorcycles for 17 years. showing that speed. willie is picking it up. willie is on the outside. go willie. he's making a big move on the far side. savannah is coming back. matt has momentum. natalie is looking sluggish. skidmark needs to get going. >> turbo doing a great job in the middle. here comes matt on the outside. look at smooth move making a move. this is remarkable.
smooth move is ahead of turbo. go matt, go. off savannah, whiplash, we need whiplash. let's get going savannah. >> i'm sorry. >> smooth move is in the lead of the turbo 500. tony, what do you think. >> turbo is going to have the last draw i think. >> here comes skidmark. what about turbo. turbo needs to pick it up. whiplash needs a little bit more. >> look at turbo go. >> yeah. >> look at turbo go. ryan reynolds. >> wait a minute. >> let's hear it for turbo. >> that was fantastic. >> i had no idea.
>> absolutely. >> you know what happened, i glanced over in the middle of the race, he went to the turbo. >> i did not. >> you brought out the turbo on morning tv. >> in my defense, in my defense, the fm is called turbo, not matt lauer. so i had to win. >> do i wear it i'll be fine on the ride home. >> it looks really good. >> this is the training ground of champions. >> it is inappropriate to whip out the turbo on morning tv. we're back right after this. >> that's it, your done.
9th. i'm melissa mollet. a draekmatic rescue early this morning in northwest washington. look at this. a construction worker from a massive hole at 14th and constitution where the national museum of african-american history and culture is being built. our crews you can see were there at rescues pulled out the man using a construction crane. rescuers tell us the man was suffering from chest
some scattered showers throughout the day today with a chance of isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. otherwise mainly cloudy to partly sunny skies. looking at a temperature right now of 79 degrees in washington. a high today of 90. here's joe fox with traffic. >> amelia good morning. late morning delays. down centreville, the picture. also kenworth avenue. earlier accident at bening road cleared but the damage done. recovering on kenilworth avenue
>> that from the camera up top. we'll get to that in just a bit. we have a piece of video we want to share with you. this is the ohio kidnapping victims speaking for the first time. held captive for a decade in the cleveland house and went to youtube thanking the public for their support. you remember their names, amanda berry, gina dejesus, and michelle knight. they are in a three minute video. here's a portion of what they said. >> it's been a blessing to have an outpouring of love and kindness. it's getting stronger every day. having my privacy helped immensely. >> if you could say something to each and every person out there that contributed money to your fund to help you, what would you say to them? >> i would say thank you for support. >> i just want everyone to know i'm doing just fine. i may have been through hell and back, but i am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile
on my face. >> that one especially michelle knight it breaks your heart to think about how much their lives were taken from them. how much was stolen from them, you know, of course these ladies went missing at 14, 16, 20 years old. held captive in hell-like conditions as you heard from michelle for almost ten years. >> first of all, they look great. they look beautiful. you're inspired again by their courage to go in front of a camera and speak publicly but have to say as a human being and as a father of a 6-year-old girl i get angry again thinking about some girls walking home from school or walking home from a job at a burger king being snatched off the street and having their lives changed forever. it makes you angry all over again. >> makes you angry but leaves you with the inspiration when you hear michelle knight say i'm not going to be defined by this. they picked up. they're moving on with their lives and trying to have as private a life as they can given
their circumstances and they have, again, thanked the public for giving them that time to also heal themselves because there's a lot of healing in the years to come. >> we'll respect that privacy. we hope everyone else does too. another story that grabbed our attention this morning. we learned more about osama bin laden's life in hiding after 9/11. this is a report on stained and hasn't been confirmed yet by nbc. it was a leaked government documents that shows us what he was up to. his car was pulled over, a traffic violation for speeding on a way to a local market in pakistan but the report says bin laden quickly settled the matter. >> that's according to the wife of one of his guards apparently and i think what's probably most fascinating is the detail that he apparently wore an american cowboy hat to sometimes help him being avoided -- to avoid being spotted by u.s. drones although
a man who is 6'8" wearing a cowboy hat in pakistan in rural areas you would think would still stand out but it's incredible that, clearly, perhaps, people around him didn't want him to be caught. >> absolutely. when you consider he moved into the compound where he was ultimately killed in august of 2005. so we're going ahead to may of 2011 when he was killed, that's almost six years. he was in the middle of a military town in pakistan. you go back to how no one knew it defies credibility and belief. >> some other glimmers from the report. he didn't care so much for clothing. had just a couple of outfits, summer and wintertime but a lot of interesting detail in this report but what is surprising is how many near misses and opportunities that they were so close to capturing him that he could have been picked up and wasn't. >> pulled over for a traffic
stop and nobody arrested him. incredible. it's not an easy transition but we'll take to make it anyway, from osama bin laden to george clooney. no offense to mr. clooney what so ever. he is single again after a lot of speculation. it is official, jhe and his girlfriend stacy keibler split up. people magazine broke the story. we haven't heard comment. a source says stacy wants to have children and a family. >> he has been married in the past and when he broke up that marriage at that time he said he was never going to get married again. question is do you think he will forever remain a bachelor now? seems like he's got a good thing going. >> right. >> i think a lot of guys would say. he seems to have beautiful ladies on his arm. they seem like really smart women as well. >> it seems to be working for him. >> he's fine. he's happy. >> people call him a playboy.
he's not a playboy. he dates women for several years at a time. >> i wonder if he met the right one, if that one -- he would final commit. >> you wonder what it would take though. he's had beautiful smart women and he hasn't been able to take that step. >> seems like a lot of right one versus come along. >> exactly. may not be happening at this point. >> matt damon also in the news. he gave an interview in which he said his mother dissuaded him from becoming a child actor. inside the magazine he said his mother thought it was child abuse. she was a professor who specialized in early childhood development and thought putting a child on stage or in a commercial or movie was child abuse. he didn't listen because his first role came when he was 18. he was in mystic pizza. >> that's right. i do remember him in that. >> that begs the question, if your kids wanted to become actors, would you let them do it? >> i think i'm with whatever my kids want to do but early on,
especially as children, i think i would be very careful and cautious about, you know, i would probably try to steer them from that direction as well. not that i think it's child abuse but i think it's difficult. the rejection is hard on kids and i don't think i'd want to put them up for that. >> and to do it at the expense of other things, including school, that happens in sports. people's lives are so focused on sports and when they didn't get a scholarship. >> or they got injured. >> then what happens. >> it's important to pursue your education first. whatever you do after college it's up to you. but you're going to college, you got that. >> exactly. to a point, right. >> exactly. >> this is an interesting one. we're going to have a type off. natalie thinks she is the world's greatest typer. >> no. >> no, i'm a good ski ball player. >> no the reason we're doing
this contest here is there's students at an elite british school, private school are being given lessons in doing things more domestic. you remember home ec? i never did it. i made up for it. i did okay with the cooking and sewing and all of that. i can manage. but they want children to learn life skills, basic skills. it made me think about what were some of the most important things you learned when you were in school. >> my high school we had home ec, auto shop, wood shop, photography, and all of these things you could use and apply later in life. the one thing that was missing and continues to be missing is finances. personal finances. why isn't that mandatory in every school? it's the one thing you use practically in your life every day. balance a checkbook, what's a stock, what's a bond? that's what kids ought to learn. >> i completely agree. >> well, i thought one of the skills i use ever day is typing
and it's something that i think a lot of kids, you see them now using the two thumbs and playing games, they don't necessarily know a keyboard. so i thought, let's -- >> this has been an elaborate set up. >> no, it's not. i'm not that great a typer but there's a twist to this challenge that i don't even know about. apparently they're going to have us type the lyrics to a song, a commonly heard song that they're going to play for us. so this is sort of a memory test and typing test at the same time which makes it really bad. >> okay. >> 30 seconds on the clock. >> you jumped ahead. ♪ old mcdonald had a farm -- >> how do you spell that? >> what did he have on the farm? >> chick chick. >> i'm just making stuff up now.
[ music playing ] >> how do you spell -- wait -- [ cow mooing ] >> this is pathetic. >> how did we do? >> terrible. i don't even know. can you read. >> wait a minute. what about accuracy? this is a disaster. no auto correct on that last part. >> i win for accuracy. >> i think we proved nothing. >> i did take typing in high school. >> you did? >> i'm sorry. yes. >> i took typing -- you know what, it is a skill you use every day. you know this keyboard apparently, i not so much. >> i'm just glad you're not one of these. >> no, no. >> we're going to keep practicing. in the meantime, let's get a check on the forecast and see what it's looking like outside. mike bettis is in for al this morning. >> good morning guys. doesn't matter what type of weather you have today. we have something you can look at on the map and show you we
still have the storms across the southeast. that's gr. also some heat across the west. that's means for a lot of you you're going to be really, really sweating. folks here from las vegas. they escaped the heat. believe it or not. i'm getting away from the heat in vegas and going to new york to escape it. a scorcher in the middle of the country. not just by vegas. it's tulsa and vitch tau, k.c., omaha, index well over 100. temperatures 99 in kansas city. wichita fall, 103 and 100 in dallas. those are the temperatures across country. a look at the forecast where you are. i'm storm team 4 meteorologist amelia segal. mostly cloudy skies for the morning hours. more sunshine getting into the afternoon. tracking some scatters the light rain showers across the area including inside the d.c. metro area. 79 in washington. a high temperature today around

>> it's official. according to "people" magazine -- want to give the news. >> if you're single, it's great news. george clooney is in fact single. we sort of -- we announced it yesterday. we weren't 100% sure. >> being nbc news we wanted to be fair and accurate. >> anyway, "people" magazine says stacy ended the relationship because she wanted kids and a family some day. and her quote is she knows where george stands on that. >> what do you think about some of those guys -- we know men like this -- who just want to be bachelors. seems like everyone is trying to get them down the aisle somehow. >> another one bites the dust! i had a relationship like that with a very, very fine guy who just had been married before, had children and didn't want to go down that road again. and when your biological clock is ticking and that's something that you care deeply about, and i did the same thing.
and right into the arms of frank gifford who already had three children as well, had grandchildren and said -- you know what he said? i always appreciated it. he said, you know what? i had a chance to make that decision. i can't withhold that from you. how can i ask you to accept my children and grandchildren and not give you children of your own? >> do i think there are some guys who may be better as bachelors. george clooney was married once a long time ago. >> realized marriage wasn't his thing. but was marriage to that woman not her thing? her name was talia, not call her that woman. >> he did say a lot of his friends are always saying, why don't you get married. some of his friends are divorced, he said in previous interviews, why would he want to get married? >> though his mom and dad had a great marriage. didn't they? no, they did. >> they did. and everyone is alive -- >> no, they're not. even i know that. if that's the worst thing i do, i guess that's okay. i'll say and how's your mother. they go, she died.
i didn't know! >> but that is a terrible feeling, no matter what the subject is. if you walk up to someone and say somehow your wife and he says well we've been divorced. you get this horrible feeling. >> just the other day. i used to know her years ago. gi hi, how is so and so. she goes -- gone. i didn't know if they had gotten divorced or he had had passed. he had passed. so i don't ask anymore. i'd rather they think i don't care. how am i supposed to know when every single person leaves this planet? people are born and a lot of people die every single day. i can not know everything, hoda woman. >> it happened like that on father's day. like you did to that one guest we had had. we had had a guest on, she's like happy gaerth's day to everyone. she says hi, daddy, i love you. i go, our daddies are dead. >> it was terrible!
>> let's talk about texting. >> you sure you don't want to talk about this first? this is the cutest. look at this. this is hodi on the day she adopted blake. >> look how miserable blake looks. honestly, just look at his face. he's thinking -- what? >> he's thinking, damn, i thought she was going to see the shitzu. >> don't say that name. can i say you something -- he's so cute! "paws chicago" has a great magazine. they were the ones who i adopted from. so here's a question. do you think sexting is cheating. they surveyed both men and women and most believe that sexting is cheating, which i think is a no-brainer. if you are sexting, which doesn't necessarily mean sending photos of yourself, but it could just mean intense flirting. it's bad. >> then why is the word "sex"
involved in it? >> because you're going beyond flirting. you're going beyond flirting. >> then it would be called flirting. >> you're going beyond. >> if you're going beyond that and including sex in any aspect then it is called sexting and that therefore makes it wrong. >> but flirting's okay? with where is the line between flirting and sexting. >> you tell me, hoda. you are the most tactile person on the planet. and the men do not have a chip -- they do not know the difference between you being friendly and interested. they don't know. >> that's a very good point. >> they think if you you go like this or hug them a little tighter, you give them a little peck -- they think you want more. and we don't. >> guess what? we don't. we're just touching you because you're there. >> sorry for you and we're trying to be nice. all right? don't then go -- don't text us afterwards going what are you wearing right now? none of your business!
all right. so sexting is definitely cheating. most men who are surveyed think a kiss is not cheating. >> not a kiss. that's not the way it was worded. kissing. kissing. which is -- >> they don't count kissing as adultery. >> a kiss on the cheek when you greet someone is not. french kissing for an hour and the half in the back seat of a cab? >> the reason that 60% of men said it is cheating and only 34% of women said it is cheating is because 60% of men are doing that and they tonight want to feel guilty so they are kissing and saying i'm not cheating, it's just a kiss and so what, it's not cheating. >> okay. we'd love to know what you all think. >> what's worse -- i'd rather my husband had a one-night stand that he was drunk and he he felt terrible and apologized -- wait. let me finish. >> where is this going? >> there's more. -- than if they were in a long running kind of emotional
relationship with someone, constantly on the phone or calling or meeting -- >> we'd rather they have an affair than fall in love. >> yeah. or just -- i think a one-time, one-and-done, terrible, i feel awful, i shouldn't have done it, please forgive me, that's one thing. i think the ongoing sharing and calling and lying about it. >> yeah. here's the thing. if you're already flirting like that, then you're sexting or you're kissing, you got major problems in your relationship. you just do. and you need to -- and the hardest thing to do is find yourself in a position like that where you want it to go further because it is obviously giving you somebody you don't have at home. the hardest thing is to stop, realize it is something about your relationship that is wrong and stop it when you most want it. that's tough to do. go back home and fix your marriage. if your marriage matters to you. >> well, how about the women who
is sext when they note the guy is married? why would they do that? it's terrible. >> because they're sluts. >> okay. anyway, move on to the next topic. there is another elizabeth tailor -- >> burton and taylor. >> we saw the lindsay lohan one. >> that was liz and dick. >> can we watch a clip of that? >> your favorite one? >> i hope. >> he's dead. >> oh, no. >> that is hoda's single favorite moment. can we do the sack of potatoes one where she falls? there is a new movie that only chronicles for a very short time. ♪ >> we can't hear it.
>> love is not a drug. >> she looks great in that role. >> she's a terrific actress and i'm glad to see her playing something other than what we've come to know her lately as. she's always playing -- she's so good tat that everybody goes, let's get helena bonham carter for that. >> i thought it was helen obama carter. i just run it all together. >> no. she's a terrific actress. did i ever tell you the story, the one time -- i got to be friendlier with her after this. the very first time i met elizabeth taylor? ky tell you or are you going to zone out on me? >> no. i can't wait. >> we were at some event and the press -- they pull up everybody to have a picture taken but not
everybody all at once. elizabeth was being honored at something, i think. frank was as well. that's right. i don't know what it was. so any way, they all of a sudden it's me, frank and elizabeth taylor. that's it. standing there with like this paparazzi craziness going on. i say, what do you say to elizabeth taylor? you know? so i lean over to her, and i go, my husband hates these things as much as you do. and she goes, i doubt that. that was it. that was it. i went, oh! why didn't i just keep my mouth shut. and then later i -- neal sedaka saved the day for something and the next day she sent me flowers this big. when i think about it, it was a pretty stupid thing to say. frank has nef had the kind of
attention that she did and it was a stupid thing to say. >> no, it wasn't stupid. >> at least i didn't ask her how richard burton was. "he's dead." big shout out to rehoboth. >> did they want to hodi on your kotb? offscreen they have never met until now. "turbo" stars. they come face to face right after this.

[ female announcer ] lyrica is not for everyone. it may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, changes in eyesight... including blurry vision, muscle pain with fever, or tired feeling. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain, i'm feeling better now that i found lyrica. ask your doctor if lyrica is right for your fibromyalgia pain. ask your doctor if lyrica is right it seems our angels stronger than ever angel soft®. with two softshield™ layers. it holds up better than ever. all wrapped up in a value you love. angel soft®. the softness you want,

i would say it took us probably about 30 minutes, 35 minutes. it is a 5k but you lose track of that very quickly. >> looks like fun though. >> you made some friends and bonded and things. >> and hoda is going to do it maybe next year. >> exactly. okay. if i can wear a shower cap. >> more mud, sweat and tears. kathie lee will check out our survival skills. kathie lee will check out our in brookside, remarkable tastes come together.

we're back on this booze day tuesday with the other view and the guy who is about to fill you in on what's goes on inside the mind of a man. >> his name is matthew had huffy, a relationship expert. also the author of "get the guy." can we ask about eva long gore ya first? her and ernesto from the show --
she said there was nothing, and then -- what is going on? >> i know as much as you guys do. no, no. i found out the same time you did. >> you knew. you're the expert! >> well, this is the thing. i was being polite in not talking to them about it. you say, well, they'll tell me when the time is right. >> okay. the time is right. >> they're out and about as a couple now. right? >> they are. seems that way. >> the show didn't work but they did. >> they got something out of that show. let's go over to sara. >> our first question from allison -- why does a guy tell a girl that she's really great when he's just not interested or ready for a relationship right now? >> well firstly, the first and not so nice reason is he doesn't really think she's that great. the second reason is he's not at the right stage of his blueprint. every guy has a blueprint -- >> do they? >> yes. yes. >> you don't need to take that attitude.
i just wonder because all guys are different like all women are. some guys just seem like they haven't thought about anything! >> no, no, that's the clever thing guys want you to think. i just haven't thought about any of this. the truth is the reason he can't do it is because he's thought too much about it. he's thought about his future and where he wants knob certain areas and is the time right right now for me to do this or should i be working hard. he's thinking if a woman comes along at the wrong stage of his blueprint, she could be the right woman and still he finds himself saying, not right now. >> i don't -- is that true? if gisele bundchen walked into a man's life ten minutes too soon and it is not going to make a little bit of a -- >> but see, a guy can change his bl blueprint but certain things need to happen for a guy to change his blue stone. we call it the rare gemstone effect. wik when a guy finds a woman that he think is rare enough that he's not going to find another one like this, he'll
change. suddenly he starts questioning his blueprint, should i be committing right now. but what women have to figure out is how do i create that rare gemstone effect, how am i going to show a guy that i'm the person he's discovered and he's not going to find one like me again. >> good luck. >> next question from kaley -- when a guy says he is not a texter does that mean he doesn't text much or does he just not want to talk. i always figured if a guy wanted to talk he'd find a way. should i move on? >> it may seem a guy is trying to lower your expectations. >> it is like the george clooney effect. he's honest with the woman at the beginning of it. listen with, i don't want to get married, let's have some fun. isn't that the better way to go? >> but i believe people have to decide what's important to them and what's not.
women -- is it really about how much a guy texts you? of course it is not. it is about how much he shows you he cares, he's thinking about you, he loves you. if a guy calls you ten times a day saying you are the most special woman in the world, you really care he's not texting you in between? >> ten times a day? >> we have rules and we have standards. a rule would be you have to text me ten times a day for me to be happy. a standard is i need to feel a certain amount of love from you. however i get that. if women focus on the standard, not the role, they'll be a lot happier. >> you're incredibly wise for a guy as young and inexperienced as you are. see? i think you got it. that's brilliant. >> thanks. >> he was worth it today. >> he was. >> today. how to take outfits you already have and make them look even better on you? already have and make them look even bthere are women who sacrifice so much. not giving a thought to their own satisfaction. like this woman here. hello!

style" and we are taking your look from good to so good. we all have those go-to outfits that we think we look great in. >> we'll show you how to take those looks to a whole new level -- >> who's here? >> one of our favorite people, b.t.! >> we love this segment. it's really taken off. >> really excited. everybody has sent their photos. most of the photos looked great. >> ashton from virginia. >> i really liked what ashton was doing here. trying to combine a few pieces and style a look. but, what i thought she could do -- she looks so good -- was to open up a little bit. when you see the side by side, it is a really subtle difference but sometimes when you want to look polished you don't need to cover up so much. the high neckline was kind of overpowering her. pushing the sleeves up to her elbow really opens you up. >> is that a watch you took
off -- >> we took off the watch just to kind of show a little more skin, a little less going on. i made the nude shoes. >> nice. >> francine from the dominican republic. >> francine was so adorable. i really liked her outfit so i wanted to kind of play with proportion. this is something i talk about in my book, the power of style. i loved the color, i loved the straw hat. the pants. if you see the side by side, francine's top was a little long for her which actually made her look a little shorter. but if you raised the top and you you give her a wider pant, that balances her shoulders, she'll look a lot taller instantly. if you're looking -- you can can look online, go to bobbi.com, and get bobbi's type advice. but this is something that can really help. >> charlotte. >> charlotte tweeted i want to see what you can do with this. i love that she's having fun
with fashion. what i did is very subtle. i think she might be interested -- if you see the side by side -- cropping her jeans. it looks so good because the jeans are a statement but they're not taking her over. you'll see her first and then notice the great pants. then the nude shoe. >> a leaner line. >> the white shoe was actually pulling more attention, it was another thing to look at. if you're going to make a statement with something bold like a graphic dress or pair of pants, just go for that statement and try to let everything else fall away. >> this is a go-to summer outfit, t-shirt and jean shorts. most people are like, okay, what are you going to do with that? this is a styling tip. wanted to switch her into a more feminine top. jeans are more masculine and opposites attract. going with something a little softer and flowy brings it all together. >> simple thing like changing the top. >> literally all i changed.
something really simple. if she wanted to stick with that t-shirt, make the shorts white so it kind of blends together. >> lisa from texas. >> she's wearing a dolman sleeve top that you'll's see everywhere in stores right now, it is back. here's the deal. some body types it will work for, but on her if you get rid of the sleeves and you see the side by side, it is amazing how instantly it changes her figure. sometimes those doll man sleeves can make you look really broad on the top for our body type. if you have broad shoulders and a narrow hip, that's actually going to help and make it softer but in her case she could really useless volume. >> we love you, bobbi! coming up, the next big thing you'll be craving. >> the best products from the fancy food show.
