critical levels setting record lows. snow packs are 80% lower than normal and it's only getting worse. areas of extreme drought expanded in just one week. the hills across california are brown. in january, this is usually all green. it's summer weather in winter here and that hurts everyone. about half the nation's fruits, nuts and vegetables come from california. as the farms wilt, so does the country's food supply. and prices, they're on the climb. >> we're waiting for rain. we're praying. we're going to do a rain dance. >> reporter: and there may be no other option as the forecast offers no immediate relief for the ever browning golden state. kyung lah, los angeles. all right, jennifer, what does it look like out there today? >> we're talking about that drought and this is not an overnight finix at all.
we need a lot of rain and need it over several, several days. that high pressure still in control. you can see it out in the west and jet stream riding high to the north and it will keep all the rain out of the way and we are going to see dry conditions and very warm conditions. so, the possibility of warm definitely not in the forecast as we go through the short term and even the long term over the next week or two. so, we are going to see very dry conditions. should be around 66 degrees this time of year, temperatures running about 10 to 15 degrees above that. so, very, very warm. 80 degrees your high temperature on tuesday. 73 on monday. so, we are actually going to get warmer. over the coming days. here's that record warmth. we broke records all across california yesterday and we are even setting records which is no surprise with that rainfall. basically, no rain should be one to two, almost three inches of rain in oakland. we've had nothing. guys? >> no cooperation from mother
nature. hopefully the winds or something will die down. >> more of an onshore wind that will help things with humidity and things not so dry. humidity. as far as rain goes, no, we are not going to see something over the next couple of days. >> thank you. michelle obama's 50th birthday celebration at the white house. star-studded event. >> beyonce performed. the dance party, the president's speech, all of it. >> there was so much there. so many people there. beyonce performed. >> well, beyonce was pretty good, but seeing barack obama do the dougy was even better. >> how very emotional, i think he was in tears at one point talking about her love for her daughters and the kind of mother she is and mate. her vulnerability, her strengths, her beauty, her

those seahawk fans produce has actually registered on the richter scale as a one and two magnitude earthquake. no joke. tonight's game, scientists from the pacific northwest seismic network will be there to measure how much the crowd noise actually moves the earth. >> part of the mystique with seattle is that the stadium is formidable and having the reputation of having a seismic signal emanating from the station reinforces that. we can demonstrate that the stadium is so loud and we can see the ground shake in the neighborhood. >> the power of people. the power of people. don't ever doubt you got it. >> in san francisco, speaking of the power of people, city officials will pull those famous cable cars off the streets of downtown san francisco just in case fans tonight get a little too excited or even a little too upset with the results. because, you know, sports make people crazy. make people do stupid things.

opportunity of working with some really great american filmmakers and i watched them and i learned. culminating was the ultimate experience with working with al pacino. it doesn't get any better than that. so, to be recognized by my american peers is particularly gratifying, it really is. >> do you have a lot of people in the lgbt community and thanking for making this character real human because sometimes, you know, they don't get that type of love from the community and people don't look at them as just regular people. >> you know, it was important to me to make this community proud. i really set out to put a real person on the screen, not a stereotype, not a cliche. a very colorful and special creature and i'm so honored to get the support and love from

returned from the holiday hiatus and a lot of people talking about the show. >> because nobody, nobody was safe from criticism last night. especially not pop star justin bieber. and those allegations that he egged his neighbor's house. >> check out his interview on a set that, okay, looks a little familiar to some of you. >> my final guest tonight is at the center of a much stranger scandal. he is accused of throwing eggs at his neighbor's house causing $20,000 in damages, pop star, justin bieber. >> yeah, you know. >> now, justin. justin, why on earth would you throw eggs at your neighbor's house? >> it's like, it's a tradition in canada. >> throwing eggs? >> i mean, no, like, i thought

all right. we begin in japan to take you around the world right now. and conservationists are just up in arms and you know why, the selection process picks up again today at the infamous dolphin killing cove. featured in the 2009 movie, "the cove." japanese fisherman rounded up 250 bottle nosed dolphins. they already picked out 25 for a life of imprisonment and others killed for meat. the summit of japan defended this practice. conservests are howling. caroline kennedy tweeted that she's "deeply concerned by the
inhumaneness of drive hunt dolphin killing and the u.s. government opposes drive hunt fisheries." in kabul there. sima? >> this is being described as one of the most brutal attacks against foreign nationals. the united states has responded by stepping up its skrurt directive by declaring a wide city in the area where the attack took place, which basically means only essential staff can make essential trips in and out of this. when it comes at a time when nato-led troops are drawing down, well under way and many analysts say this may be the time that the afghan people will need more foreign assistance and help than ever before. back to you, christie. >> thank you. let's get to india now with the death of a socialite spark controversy. >> christie, a private affair
that turned ugly on twitter and now the woman at the center of it is dead. socialites and her high-profile husband, the indian politician. really the main stay of dehli's social circles. but on wednesday she accused her husband of having an affair with the pakistani journalist and she also told her friends that she was depressed and two days later her body was found in this uber luxury hotel. doctors said she had an unnatural and sudden death. but the main cause of her death will not be known until the autopsy reports are out. back to you, christie. >> we appreciate it, thank you. we want to get to russia where organizers of the winter olympics are posting security after the bombings. nic is there. hi, nic. >> coming as regional rebels release video they claim of the
suicide bombers behind twin suicide bombing attacks in the city of the nearest transport hub to the olympics. security here has been heightened. you can't park your car near the airport. police at every traffic intersection and army camps in this area and construction still under way to get these olympics ready. but, security on everyone's minds. back to you, christie. >> thank you so much. here closer to home the biggest bash in the nation last night. the first lady marking a milestone. michelle obama looked fabulous at 50, but is it more than just her appearance? up next, an other who says, you, too, can look and feel younger. but all in how you act. what you should and should not be doing. next.
we want to get you caught up on your week so you know what's going on. monday, iran, nuclear deal taking effect with the support of six world powers, iran has agreed to limit its nuclear power in exchange for sanctions. talks will continue on a broader deal to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. moving on to tuesday, another big day for governor chris christie. he is expected to swear in around 11:30 eastern. moving to thursday, another must-see event right here on cnn. the network premiere of "the impostor." a liar who pretended to be a missing boy from texas. he convinced the boy's parents he was their son. despite being older than the missing boy and looking different than him and speaking with a french accent. how does that happen? you'll see it. on friday, sorry to tell you, the price of a stamp goes up 3 cents.
taking it from 46 cents to 49. so, victor, almost two quarters you have to dish out now. >> i remember when a stamp was one quarter. >> i do, too. took me a minute, but, you're right. >> 25 cents. all right, thank you, christi. overnight, a star-studded birthday bash for michelle obama at the white house. celebrities and party guests told cnn that beyonce and john legend performs. the first lady officially marked her 50th birthday friday with her aarp card. and aarp execs point out that mrs. obama is a prime example of how youthful people can be at 50. but our next guest says to stay youthful, she may need to follow some tips. for example, avoid picking up any embarrassing hobbies like needle pointing pillows or constantly leaving voicemails on her daughters' phones. i'm sure they would appreciate that. or nagging the president to skip spicy food to avoid getting heartburn. those tips and more can be found
in a book "how not to act old" by pamela redmond saltran. a lot of people are scooting up to the television to learn how not to act old. >> if you're up at this time of the morning, you probably are old. >> they went to sleep at 7:00. so, you know, there would be some who say michelle obama yes, she's 50, but she doesn't act old. in what ways is she not acting her age? >> well, definitely her party last night. you know, doing exactly what she wanted to do. i think that's something you have the right to do when you're 50. and she was celebrating that. and she was doing it her way, which is really not acting old. >> so, in an interview with "people" magazine the first lady said and i want to read this, never say never about getting botox. is botox something that old ladies get? >> i don't think young ladies are getting it too often. you know, i think michelle is
coming down on the side of this issue of a lot of women, which is just, you know, i'm going to do what i want to do in firm tf making myself look on how i want to look and i don't care how the world thinks. >> a lot of people comment on the first lady's arms and that's fitness and about staying healthy. is it attitude or physical fitness and health? >> i think it's a combination of the two. you know, i'm kind of haunted by reading that michelle gets up at 5:00 or 5:30 in the morning. >> 4:30 some days. watching us now as she pumps iron. and i think about that when i don't want to get out of bed in the morning and i certainly don't want to go to the gym. but i think that she's an inspiration to a lot of women in their 40s, 50s, 60s who want to keep vital and youthful and keep changing, too, in their lives. >> so, what else? aside from needle pointing and
staying away from spicy foods, how else can people not act old? >> i think michelle have come to the point with malia that she realizes to get her teenager's attention she has to text or call or actually talk face-to-face. when you are texting your teenager or your 20 something colleague, you have to be sure to do it with your thumbs because using your index finger on your phone to dial your phone is definitely a way to act old. when you call, don't leave a voi voiced voi voicemail. young people don't listen to voicemails. just hang up the phone and they will look at their missed calls and they'll call you back. >> i have one more, if you're texting, take out all the vowels. young people don't use vowels. pamela s, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> christi, over to you.
>> i was taking notes. that's all i can say, i was taking notes. you know it is supposed to be california's rainy season right now, but reality is that that state is bone dry and the situation is dire. there's some fascinating science behind what's causing it. we'll tell you. life's an adventure when you're with her. and it always has been. but your erectile dysfunction - it could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready.

it's getting worse out west. california is suffering through its worst drought in more than a century. the governor has declared a state of emergency and is urging its residents there to cut back on how much water they use. >> now, california is famous for sunny weather, right? but the high temperatures that have baked the golden state for over a year, they are anything but normal. so, jennifer gray is here and researching this to explain the science behind the drought. >> basically brought an off-shore flow, very warm, very dry air. this is the time when they're supposed to get rain. so, we realize that we're going to be in this for the long haul. we took a closer look to find out the science behind the drought.
just take one look in the west and the pictures will tell the story. we're barely two weeks into 2014 and records are being broken. what is the science behind this extreme weather? >> persistent areas of high pressure what meteorologists call ridges, we have a lot of dry, hot weather. i think that's what we've seen and because of that, the western united states has been ridiculously dry. >> california's extreme drought is dire. san francisco is experiencing its driest year in more than 165 years. the wildfires come at a time when it's supposed to be california's rainy season. >> we're waiting for rain. we're praying. we're going to do a rain dance. >> the president of the american meteor logical society dr. marshal shepherd said it is going to take much more than a dance to reverse this, thanks in part to the jet stream. >> you can get locked into these modes or patterns of how the jet stream is situated and in 2013,
high pressure has been the dominant weather feature over the west. that causes really hot and dry conditions. >> reporter: because of this, california is parched. many of their lakes and reservoirs are at 30% and sinking. and the snow pack, which is supposed to be a key resource for water is 84% below average. >> that snow is the drinking water for people in los angeles, phoenix and other places later in the year and it doesn't take a rocket scientist, even though i used to work at nasa to know that there are going to be stresses on water supply. >> reporter: and long-term predictions don't spell relief. >> as we move further into the actual summer months, things are only going to get drier, the humidity is only going to get lower. >> like we said, this is supposed to be california's rainy season. we only have a tiny window before it starts the dry season. so, this is going to create just an unbelievable wildfire season
most likely and then, you know, it's people's drinking water. >> a lot to be concerned about. thank you, jennifer, so much. so, thank you so much, too, for starting your morning with us. >> we have a lot more ahead on the next hour of your "new day." starts right now. good morning, wherever you are. i feel like i should say vietnam, but it doesn't make sense. good morning, wherever you are. 7:00 on a sunday right now. boy, only 4:00 in the west and you're already awake. i'm impressed. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. we're starting ininab new jerse with governor chris christie and his camp and pushing back hard against new claims of political tieback tied to super storm sandy. >> the mayor of hard-hit hoboken
said officials. now democratic mayor dawn zimmer did confirm those claims to cnn. >> also provided journal entries from the time that she says backs up her claims. now, her spokesperson gave this statement "the bottom line that the lieutenant governor came to hoboken and pulled me aside in a parking lot and made it clear that sandy aid was contingent on moving ahead with the rockefeller development. she knew it was wrong and even said so." however last week zimmer told cnn that she did not think sandy aid money was being withheld from hoboken because she did not endorse christie re-election. >> in responding to the latest claims a spokesman considered a top presidential contender, remember, blasted the report saying, "it's very clear
partisan politics are at play here as democratic mayors with political ax to grind come out of the woodwork and try to get their faces on television." >> of course, the allegations come as evidence mounts that aides to christie agreed to tie up traffic on a major bridge as political revenge. in just about two hours, cnn's candy crowley will interview hoboken mayor dawn zimmer on "state of the union." be sure to stay right here at 9:00 a.m. eastern on cnn. in the meantime, christie himself is in florida where he is due to meet major donors that could help pitch his bid for president. >> his first political fund-raising trip since the bridge scandal broke. but as the allegations swirl, christie staying out of the spotlight, at least in public. >> wondering if these latest claims from the hoboken mayor came up yesterday during christie's travels. were they talking about it? >> well, listen, victor and
christi, no one came out and said they were talked about but remember these were all private events. looking ahead to today, though. this event coming up is a big indication of where governor chris christie stands. except for a drive-by glimpse or two. new jersey governor chris christie spend day one of his fund-raising trip to florida behind closed doors. >> governor christie, do you have a few seconds, sir? >> governor? >> reporter: unclear if the bridgegate scandal followed christie to those fund-raisers. this woman inside an orlando event that he attended played a little bit of a guessing game. >> talked bout governor scott and how good he is. >> reporter: did anything about the scandal come up? >> what do you think? >> reporter: elaborate. >> what do you think? yes or no. >> reporter: yes. >> he said nothing, zero, zilch. >> reporter: beb debbie wasserm schultz had lots to say.
>> either chris christie doesn't want to answer any questions or rick scott doesn't want to be seen in public. a little bit of both. >> reporter: released this welcome to florida ad. florida's republican party chairman accused democrats of trying to turn christie's visit into a circle. >> i'd say chris christie apologized. chris christie took action. he's the head of the republican governor's association and he's down here doing his job and that's raising money to make sure rick scott gets re-elected. >> reporter: how will the scandal affect christie's chances should he run for the white house? any talk in there about this being an issue for if christie decides to run in 2016? >> none. thank you. >> reporter: more likely to come on that front today a so-called donor outreach event in north palm beach. the owner of ho--
>> and just to give you a little bit more sense of why today is so important, the host of that event tells cnn interest has gone up since this scandal unfolded, saying initially they had about 200 potential donors interested in attending the event. that number has gone up to 500 and now, possibly, more than he can accommodate at his house. he's also gone on to really say that some people have called him and said, they like the way that governor christie has handled all this so far and he's been decisive and embarrassed about what happened and now just opportunity to meet with him face-to-face. victor and christie, today could potentially be when republicans ask governor christie about these scandals at a closed door event. >> thank you. we know you're just waking up and dennis rodman waking up this morning, but he's doing it in a different spot. in rehab. the former nba star is seeking
treatment for alcohol addiction and he's already a week in. >> escalated during that controversial trip to north korea. nick vulenshia is following the story. how many trips to rehab, i'm not making fun of him, but asking seriously? >> at least four if you count his appearance on dr. drew. this trip to north korea led to his escalation in drinking. he had a lot of pressure on him to be a cultural ambassador and seen as a political figure, as well. going over there. check out the statement that the agent sent cnn and other media outlets. "his drinking escalated to a level that none of us had seen before. when he came back, i discussed with him on a personal level how concerned i was. we sat down and i decided for him to go to rehab." he will be in rehab about a month. 28, 30 days in this rehab facility. >> and i know that alcoholism is a legitimateabsolutely.
>> many people struggle with it, but i have to ask about the timing. >> it seems fishy. celebrities sometimes use rehab to avoid the spotlight. and some people that we talked to this morning, they think this is suspicious timing on rodman's part. but like you say, victor, alcoholism is a disease, it's real, nothing to be poked fun at and rodman has a long history. check out this sound bite that we have, he made a very public and now infamous exchange with cnn's "new day" host chris cuomo. take a listen. >> i don't give [ bleep ], i'm saying to you, look at these guys here. look at them! if you understand, do you understand what he did? >> what did he do? you tell me. >> no, you tell me! why is he held captive? >> they haven't released any
charges. >> the imprisoned american being held in north korea not being officially charged by the government but rodman later apologized for his outburst saying he had been drinking at the time. >> some people say suspicious timing, legitimate question. but at the same time, maybe something like that that wakes you up. >> you have to wish him a very speedy recovery. very sad day for rodman and his supporters. nick, thank you so much. so, let's lighten it up a little bit. >> little bit. >> what happens when you get stevie wonder and samuel jackson together and you say, put on your dancing shoes? >> you are about to see what or rather who they were celebrating when "new day sunday" returns. t. fedex one rate. really makes my life easier. maybe a promotion is in order.

that was the hottest ticket in town. >> i bet. her real birthday was friday, remember. all the stars and the d.c. power players came to the white house last night to celebrate the first lady's half century milestone. i hate to say it like that. >> half century. >> but she makes it look good. >> 50 and fabulous. how did it go? >> well, christi and victor, beyonce performed and john legend sang happy birthday but the president who really stole the show because he took over the dance floor when he danced the dougie. we have been talking for days how the president and the first lady really wanted this party to turn into a dance party and it did. i saw many guests come in wearing high heels and they also had a little bag carrying their flat shoes that they could change into later once the dance party got under way at the white house. we saw so many stars here last night beyonce, jennifer hudson,
gladys knight. i think you'll recognize these two coming into the party last night. >> just looking forward to having good, old school dance music. >> i'm going to have a good time. thank you, guys. i'm going to have a ball, this is great. >> now we're told that the president also gave a long toast to the first lady at the end of the night. he raised a glass and specifically in that speech he did mention how good of a mother she is. this is a birthday celebration and we're having a little fun with it and a lot of people want to know who pays for a lavish event like this. it is not taxpayer dollars the obamas are putting on this private function, so they are footing the bill. christie and victor. >> i have heard that question and thank you for answering it. we appreciate it. so, we want to get a little bit more insight, though, into this party from a washington insider. >> yes. we have one with us. with us now, columnist for "washington post." good to have you this morning.
>> thanks for having me. >> so, we heard now the president did the dougie and dance floor was hot. is this the typical, i know the answer to this, the typical obama party? >> well, you know, the typical first lady and the president party. when they are together with their friends. that was the thing about this party. there were no details released beforehand. we had all been hearing the rumors about beyonce since the summer she might perform, but no official word and no guest release and this was a private party they were having with their closest friends. their closest friends happen to be samuel l. jackson and magic johnson and jennifer hudson and gayle king but it was a friend affair. the president told people to eat before they come. only snacks and wear their
comfortable shoes because lots of dancing. you knew they would let their hair down tonight. >> i want you to listen real closely to how tom joiner scr e described the party for us. >> everybody was there. stevie wonder was there. >> sing happy birthday. >> yeah. john legend. stevie. who else was there? >> samuel l. jackson. >> what did you eat? >> they had no food. >> they had no food. >> is that, i mean, is that, is that normal to have a big party like this and, i mean, they had food. they had some little desserts and snacks here and there, but no formal dinner, right? >> you know, people took a little umbridge with that when they first told folks to eat before they come, right? a lot of professional party planners and event planners said that was a little, they didn't
want to say it was rude, but it was a little strange. usually you don't put that on an invite. if you're starting the party later, i don't think it got started until 10:00, people assume that there won't be food, if it's a dance party. you don't have to tell people to eat before they get there. but, the president wanted to let people know, listen, this isn't a formal affair, it's not this black tie, sit down, state dinner. that's what they were doing. >> you're coming to have a good time. >> if you were going to the white house, you would think, they're going to feed me, right? >> i assume there were heavy snacks. >> heavy snacks. that's enough. so, we heard beyonce, john legend, ledisi all performs. how much does something like this cost? >> you know, the white house probably won't release those numbers at all. but, let's say, you know, her and beyonce are great friends, right? the obamas and the carters have
hung out before, so, who knows. maybe they were just performing for a friend of theirs. you know, it's a great thing to be able to perform at the white house and to say that you performed at the white house for the first lady's 50th birthday. it's a huge honor. who knows whether or not these people were doing it as a gift to the obamas. that's altogether possible. >> when you hear about this party, how does it compare to other parties at the white house, birthday parties? >> it's funny, we reported about this in the reliable source at "washington post" and the party it stacks up to is hillary clinton's 50th birthday party. the last first lady to turn 50 in the white house and her party was epic, right? she had a surprise black tie affair for 100. they hosted 500 people at the white house and then flew to her hometown of chicago and had a two-day long celebration that culminated with her showing up on the "oprah winfrey" show.
a lot of black ties and full length gowns. i think when we compare this to hillary clinton's birthday, the first lady's birthday was almost, really, low key. of course, a lot of celebrities there and we know they had a good time, but more of a private affair. you know what i mean. they really wanted to have something intimate and fun with their friends. >> low key. >> the invitation said no cameras, you know, not a lot on social media right now. they wanted it to be within their tight friend group. >> low key with beyonce and ledisi and john legend. >> if you're going to do it, do it big. thank you very much. >> thank you. and your "new day" sunday continues right after the break. you are so outta here! aah!

good to have you on "new day" and all morning we're talking about dennis rodman, the former nba star is now in rehab. his agent says he's already been in treatment for about a week. >> he has a long history of alcohol addiction, but according to his agent this latest is due to the pressure and backlash over that trip to north korea. so, let's talk to david sugarman. david is an nba sports agent and a friend of dennis rodman. so, david, we thank you so much for coming on. this is a sensitive issue and we appreciate your candor. >> my pleasure.
>> first of all, you did not go on this trip to north korea. >> no, i did not go. >> so, when you heard about it, what did you think? >> i actually heard about it, i read about it in the morning. i was, you know, 7:00 in the morning i looked at my phone and i had 300 missed calls. and then i saw that dennis was over there and kenny anderson who works with us he was over there, as well. >> so, you know, a lot of celebrities and, again, i want to preface this by saying alcoholism, we understand, most people understand is a real disease. >> very real. >> but there is a history in hollywood when times get tough and the press goes bad that people run off to rehab. is he hiding from the media right now? >> look, i mean, i haven't spoken to dennis. and i spoke with darin prince, his agent, last night at length. and i'm no expert in alcoholism, but i think he probably had an
awakeni awakening. i mean what happened in north korea was a big deal. i mean, it was a big deal and it doesn't look good and it fired on dennis and i think he needs help. >> can you help us understand why he's so enamored with north korea? >> i don't have the answer to that. i mean, i spoke with ken anderson about this in l.a. the other day and my understanding was his father was a huge chicago bulls fan and wanted michael jordan to go over there, but i can't verify that information. >> can you tell us, also, beyond what we saw on "new day" with chris cuomo that outburst and the shouting, what else happened in north korea that was so dramatic? >> again, i heard this from a bunch of guys that were over there. i mean, dennis was apparently had a beer in his hand at all times. you know, as kenny alluded to on pier's show, their passports
were all taken when they checked into the hotel. i mean, everybody's passport was taken. they were taken on tours around north korea. they went to kim jung-il's grandparent' house and a lot of culture showed to these guys. so, other than that -- >> a beer in rodman's hand the entire time he was there? >> that is what i was told. >> hopefully this time around, he can, he can get it together. i mean, we hope that for him, certainly. >> i hope so. i mean, i know dennis. and i spent time with dennis and i said to my wife when i saw that interview that cnn did, i knew dennis was drunk. i mean, i could tell by the way he was acting and i've seen, i've seen two sides to dennis. i've seen that side and then i've seen the sober side. so, it was clear as day to me that there was something, that there was something wrong there. >> david, as his friend, i'm sure it's hard for you to watch. we thank you for joining us
today. >> david, thank you so much. >> thank you. so, i don't know, maybe you were out late. >> we weren't. >> we never are. we have boring lives. maybe you were in bed a little early. either way, in case you missed it, "saturday night live" had a huge show last night. >> and the lady right here, she is the reason why. we'll catch you up on who she is and why her debut was such a big and why her debut was such a big deal. t not in a row. for the first time, you can use nicorette... even if you slip up... so you can reach your goal.
