singing and how some of the stars celebrated mother's day. they love their mothers. >> and tommy hilfiger's daughter ali is here. she's opening up about her medical diagnosis and how she fought lyme disease. it's something she had as a little girl, and was not diagnosed for a long time. >> and misdiagnosed. you can get a lot of false positives and positive negatives, however you want to say it. >> we'll values dr. natalie azar to help us out because it seems like so many people are misdiagnosed that people would say "maybe it's lyme." >> right off the bat. any way, the country cutie thomas brett is here. >> love him. >> we're talking about video of the year. he'll announce those with us. >> the weather finally changed, hody. finally yesterday. >> i knew what it felt like to live in seattle. >> or london or any of those places, yeah. we had almost 1

10:03 am
this one i think ellen hit a home run. so matt was at the met gala and people didn't see him because he snuck by photographers and they didn't get a good look. well, ellen's cameras got a good look at him. so this is it. >> here's a little bit of what was on the red carpet. >> beyonce making a big splash as the last to arrive wore givenchy. kim kardashian and hubby kanye west wore coordinating glitzy outfits. the "today" show's matt lauer wore a white dinner jacket. he says the party is a nice diversion from covering the news. >> just when matt things it's not over, it's not over. sorry, matt. >> what is matt going to do? >> well, matt is a good prankster, he'll come up with something up for ellen. that will air today on ellen. >> well, it already aired on us! >> there you have it. >> so did you see this coming?
10:04 am
ozzy osbourne and sharon reportedly splitting up after 33 years of marriage. >> e news reporting the couple mutually agreed ozzy will move out of their home temporarily. "people" magazine is also reporting the split but they cite sources say they may reconcile down the road. i think it was surprising because number one they've weather sod many storms. you picture them over a long, long, long marriage and i think you just pictured them going the distance, going all the way. >> well you almost say if that wasn't going to do it for them, what possibly could. according to e, the split doesn't have to do with ozzy's drug and alcohol addiction issues because he's been sober for over three years. >> they've been married since 1982, they have three kids together and they've had -- i guess there have been rumors circulating they were possibly going to divorce in the past but they got everything on track, ozzy got clean, all that kind of stuff. you always wondering, you don't kn
10:05 am
anyone's marriage. >> we sure don't. >> but you do wonder if there's a point where you just say we're already in it this long. a lot of people just stay and continue. what do you think? >> well, obviously we've reached out and -- surprise -- they haven't gotten back to us but i'm sure they will soon. you know what? i in my time have had so many lies written about me and my marriage or my this or that. you don't fwheep to belieknow w and nobody but those two people know what's going on so we wish everybody the best. i hate to see marriages break up. i really, really do. sometimes they just do. that's the way it works. >> if you guys were home, the kentucky derby was on this weekend at churchill downs. check this out. this was so exciting. nyquist was in third for part of the race. >> the one in purple. >> the one in purple, then he just turned it on, it was so exciting. it was like one of those that you didn't know if he was going to pull it
10:06 am
>> ridden by mario gutierrez. >> nyquist is still unbeaten! he has won the kentucky derby. >> i like how excited the guy got. >> and you don't even care about house racing. >> who cares? >> forgive me but you know how you -- last year we were so -- n -- >> about american pharoah. well, we loved him because he was egyptian. >> yeah. that was the main reason. but it's so interesting because -- i guess this guy lab undefeated for the last eight starts. >> i had a couple friends who went to it this past weekend and they say it's one of those things like the super bowl or like olympics or something that you want to say you went once in your life you know? but if you done drink and you don't look particularly good in hats -- >> what's the point? but they said in case you were wondering, this horse, nyquist, beat american pharoah's time last year by almost two seconds. so think about how much faster this horse was. >> so
10:07 am
the belmont? no, the preakness then the belmont. >> so here's some celebs who were there in case you were wondering. kate upton in her hat. lindsey vonn in her hat and tara lipinski. johnny weir -- >> oh, lord! got to love johnny. >> he's on eight shows a week now in "aladdin." >> he is? >> no!

[ laughter ] yeah, he's a rave on broadway right now. >> so there's a makeup artist in croatia. >> of course there! >> and she decided she was going to transform her 80-year-old grandmother with a makeover. there's her grandmother's before and she went to -- what? wait. >> wow. >> that looks like maria callas. >> what? wow. >> oh, my gosh. that's crazy. >> i wonder if san
10:08 am
>> that's crazy! >> i could use you. mary's great but taking off 40 years, that's -- that woman could make a fortune in l.a., right? >> the plastic surgeons would hate her. have you ever watched your favorite shows and stuff and wondered what would that apartment cost if i wanted to rent it? >> yes. >> now, with the way real estate prices are. >> the "new york post" went into that and they checked out famous tv apartments. so these are the ones you might be wondering about. okay, remember the apartment in the west village on "friends"? so if you were wondering, how much would they pay right now for that apartment and you've seen it -- >> is this one bedroom? >> i think it was two. that one now would cost $4,500 per month if you were renting that apartment, the "friends" apartment. now if you live in new york you're like "oh, a two bedroom,
10:09 am
$4,500." when i first moved here to new york from new orleans. the lady goes "here's the apartment i want to show you. over here is the bedroom. now look right over here, turn, here's the living room." i was standing in one room and i couldn't believe that that's what they were renting and they said "but look at the views." and the views were spectacular and they wanted i think it was $4,000 or something. >> tell them about the outdoor living. >> oh, yeah, they go "we have beautiful outdoor space" and they opened up the doors and there was a window box area. they're like "see, you can grow things." but people snapped that apartment up in five seconds after i left and i remembered not getting it. like i said i do not get new york prices or new york -- >> you get it soon enough, don't you? rude awakening. so now "seinfeld's" upper west side one bedroom. >> remember this one? that would be a good one to rent. $3,400 per month. >> see i thought it would be more thaha
10:10 am
years in the same building with you and it cost more than that. >> yeah. uh-huh. don't have it anymore because it cost so much. everybody, don't go anywhere or you'll miss our favorite things. >> plus, there's soon to be another kardashian to keep up with, he has the scoop in when you've been making delicious natural cheese for over 100 years like kraft has, you learn a lot about people's tastes. honey, what do you want for dinner tonight? oh whatever you're making. cheesy chipotle pork quesadillas? mmmm... ravioli lasagna bake? yeah i don't know... grilled white chicken... grab something rich, sharp and creamy. triple cheddar stuffed sliders! sold! we aim to cheese! kraft natural cheese: we make cheese for how you love cheese.
