professional professionals". >> so you've got to get to the top news stories of the morning. we've got natalie at the news desk. >> good morning, everyone. startling new statistics today as the pentagon reports that nearly one service member commits suicide every day. 154 soldiers have committed suicide in the first 159 days of this year. that's 17% more than at the same time last year and more than the total number killed in action in afghanistan so far this year. wild weather, including tornadoes, destroyed at least five homes thursday in southeastern wyoming. several people were treated for minor injuries. powerful storms also pounded parts of crowd dough with hail. and an ominous funnel cloud developed near an outdoor graduation ceremony in new jersey forcing the new graduates and their guests to run for cover from the high winds and rain. six members of a prominent kansas family were killed thursday when their small plane crashed into the central florida swamp. officials say businessman ron bromage was flying with his wife
and four children home from the bahamas when the plane went down. the basketball arena at kansas state university is named for his grandfather. federal health officials are racing to find the source of an e. coli outbreak in florida, georgia, louisiana and alabama. at least 11 cases have been linked to the outbreak, including the death of an infant in new orleans last week. however, officials are just beginning their investigation and they hope to identify the source of the contamination before the outbreak widens. another shot at a stolen dream for exonerated football hopeful brian banks. the 26-year-old had been jailed for years on a false rape conviction that was overturned last month. once a top college football prospect when he was back in high school, banks now has tryouts scheduled for six nfl teams, and an invite for the seattle seahawks mini camp. he says now he wants to earn enough money to support his mother, who sold her house and car to cover his legal expenses during his ordeal. and you can probably get away with wearing fabulous faux
jewelry when you're married to the future king of england. kate the duchess of cambridge was dazzling in what appeared to be diamond and pearl earrings she wore at buckingham palace for the queen's jubilee. well now we have since learned they are reportedly high quality fakes. that cost about $75. we love that about her. of course she has access to the real deal, as well. four minutes after the hour. let's go out to al. the cleanup has begun. >> yes, it has. the crowds are still hanging around for "today's professionals." let's first show you what we've got for today. strong storms on the plains, into the upper midwest, and the northeast in new england. isolated tornadoes, damaging wind and hail and our friends down in florida continue to get socked with a monsoonal moisture. looking at a lot of rain anywhere from 3 to 5 inches from daytona beach, orlando, just to the north of miami.
>> good morning. the sun is out. the forecast is good all over the state. mid 80's for highs with lots of su >> and that's your latest weather. savannah? >> al, thanks. now we are kicking off an hour, yes an hour, with our power players, "today's professionals." attorney and author star jones, ad executive donny deutsch and head and neck surgeon and nbc's chief medical editor, we may need a doctor, dr. nancy snyderman. >> speaking of doctors. the psychiatric team from bellevue is checking us out now. >> i've got a blood pressure cuff right over there. let's start with the hot topic.
the miss usa controversy. miss pennsylvania was on our show this morning, exclusively, talking about why she stepped down basically relinquished her title of miss pennsylvania because she thinks the contest was rigged. first of all i know you all watched the interview. did you believe her story? >> she seemed to be very credible. however i'm waiting to see some evidence. it's one thing to make a claim. it's another thing to say that she saw something from a friend, or she heard something from a friend. that friend now denies it. if there is no factual empirical evidence to back up her claim she's really going to be in trouble in a defamation kind of lawsuit. >> could be clear, she said that she heard another contestant said they knew the five finalists before they had really even done the last 16. >> but that alleged contestant has now said that did not happen. there was no list. and so i'm not sure if she's got really a claim. >> donny, what do you think? >> i found her to be very, very engaging. and i want to give trump some branding advice. donald and i go back a long way. he's starting to feel like a
bully. whether she's right or wrong to go after coming off the birther thing if i was donald i would just back away from this. >> he's threatening to sue her. >> he's been -- i've got to tell you donald and you hate me for this, you just gotta kind of move on from this thing. >> is her question -- >> are these things even relevant anymore? who gives a damn? it's a pageant? are they a relative of a bygone era? >> yes, yes, yes. >> -- really do get into pageants and girls use it for scholarship money. at least some pageants. i don't know about these particular pageants. it may be just beauty. >> by the way, i think -- >> it's not -- >> a lot of the -- >> a lot of elitism. >> a lot of the country likes this. >> that's what -- >> then guess what? then it's reality television and don't be surprised if it's rigged. >> by the way -- >> don't be surprised if it's rigged then if it's reality television. >> we've got a whole hour to get to. next topic, miley cyrus engaged. she's 19. she's going to marry her boyfriend of a few years liam
hemsworth. nancy, is there any evidence that people who get married as youngsters have less success rate in marriage than older couples? >> yes. but every once in awhile there is the romeo and juliet effect. and this may be the perfect one. he is young -- he is stunningly handsome. that's all i can say. >> but is that really your analysis? >> yes. >> just about his looks? >> do i have to turn to donny to get a serious response? >> first of all, 19-year-olds, you're not -- you don't know what you're going to be like as a grown adult. the chances are so small. but the thing you have to look at, there are so many celebrities out there, jessica simpson who has a baby, that their only reason they exist in the consciousness now is not for their talent but what they're doing personally. >> you think miley cyrus is an example of that? >> sure. >> i can barely commit to a hairdo at 19, i can still not commit to it now. are you kidding me? >> the hairdo is yesterday. >> the chances are stacked against her because she's young and because they're doing this in these very public way. >> smart business move. >> i love the next story.
ladies day at the french open. okay. one decided it should be ladies day there and let's show you how they celebrated. they turned the clay court pink for the occasion. they offered manicures, and massages. take a look. you know, one espn reporter, a female was aghast, she said, there were invitations for the fairer sex, and rsvps for women only. is this a nice gesture or is this kind of -- >> do see evert and navratilova on a pink court? >> however it's the color of breast cancer awareness. >> we do that here in this country. we always celebrate, or i should say highlight breast cancer awareness with pink. >> well we hijack october. >> i think there's a bigger issue here. it's interesting. the deutsch agency which is run by women now. they get offended, the ad agency came out with the 30 women in advertising. that keeps women in a box in a corner. every time we try to elevate women by saying the ten most powerful women in hollywood. aren't we keeping them down? >> do you think it's different
because it's french? >> i'm just saying, obvious eu pink is fine, but i think the larger fine is every time we try to elevate women are we actually setting them back and separating them? >> but if you did the top 50 people i'm only curious how many would be women? >> that's the point. that's what has to happen, that's their point. >> if it's going to be 50/50 in there then of course you don't need to separate. >> real quick, did it offend any of you to be referred to as ladies? >> i'd rather be called a broad. >> i was just going to say that. >> it doesn't bother me just don't call me the "b" word. the other word. >> right away. >> i got in trouble for using the word broad. >> i like being a broad. >> everyone wants to be a broad. >> genetic testing breakthrough. nancy, this one is probably for you. there's a new study that shows there could be a simple noninvasive test that is a blood sample from the pleg nantz mother, saliva from her man and would give a full genetic profile. what would you learn about the feetous? >> you might learn that i child has a severe genetic problem. it gives parents a chance do decide whether they're going to continue that pregnancy or not.
this is the science of today. it is running fast into the future. and i think the future will be such that you'll find out that your child may have a genetic hit. you can fix that genetic problem, and improve your chance a child -- >> when will you know about this? >> well, it's out there now. >> obviously, i'm a pro-choice guy but at the end of the day what's stopping people, oh, my son is going to be blonde. you've got to do it -- >> i get the genetic engineering issue. but the reality is we've already jumped out of that with amniocentesis. the science is there. the problem is science goes faster than we have these societal questions. that's exactly why we should have the societal questions. >> do you think it raises ethical issues? if you have information that your child is going to have a genetic problem and then you're posed with the question of going forward with the pregnancy? >> i'm pro-science. i believe this is a great way to prevent diseases. >> i agree. >> and my only question is, legally, at what point will the courts step in and say no, this
is too late in the gestation process? >> they won't. they won't. >> we'll see what's happening with the next presidency. >> not if you can save a life and prevent a disease. >> i agree. >> let's move on to somewhat interesting topic, cap and frown we're calling it. a mother was arrested at graduation because she cheered too loudly at her daughter's high school graduation. the woman, in south carolina, shannon cooper, says she was placed in handcuffs, walked through the middle of the ceremony in front of her daughter. >> i just have to tell you, i'm sorry that i didn't get arrested. because i could have. i was at three graduations over the past week. and we cheered as loudly as possible. the only reason why i didn't scream and hoot and holler in the last one, my nephew, because i was giving the commencement speech and it wouldn't have been appropriate. >> isn't that the point of graduation? >> yes. >> it's their day. >> at a time when we worry about kids not getting to college and not graduating. >> thank you. >> and not assimilating into society, you want to whoop it up, whoop it up. >> donny? >> it's ridiculous to arrest the woman. but i also do sometimes wonder,
i was at a graduation and certain kids get cheered louder because maybe the parents are louder. but clearly to arrest this woman. >> i mean enough already. >> and mess up that kid's graduation so forever she's got to tell people, you know my momma got arrested at my graduation. >> good story, though. >> all right. >> don't be arresting my momma at my graduation. >> why you got to move your head when you do that? >> you do it. >> i do not. >> you get to be together for the whole hour. >> two classy broads, star and nancy, thanks. all right the professionals are staying with us. they're going to go on the road and help one mom and give her a lifestyle makeover. donny is giving dating tips.

[ laughing ] course she does... we got number 34. highway. and we got 43 over there. city. go on, check it out! i'll tell you what, checkers, you've impressed me before in the past, and you're impressing me even more now. coach is impressed. you did a good job and i like your shoes. oh, yeah, back now with our "today's" professional whip. i got the blues with a lowdown. >> i'm going to start things off with chief medical editor dr. nancy snyderman. let's begin with something which is being referred to as the party girl drip. >> so this is like the newest, hottest thing in hollywood apparently. if you become drunk the night before, you can hook yourself up
to an i-very with minerals or vitamins in it and people say it makes them feel better. so here's the straight on it. this is for the worried well. you don't have enough problems in your life, go looking for something that has no medical benefits. it will give you expensive urine and my advice to people simply is, if you need something to deal with the fact that you got drunk the night before, don't get drunk. >> exactly. that's the only cure there. >> waste of money. >> we'll talk about sheryl crow battled breast cancer six years now. now she's came out last week saying she has a benign brain tumor. >> she's an amazing woman. so she couldn't remember lyrics onstage and sort of laughed it off to being 50, then had a follow-up and incidental finding was that she has this brain timer. they do increase in number as women get older. but there is no evidence that this caused the problem. they are benign. a benign tumor in a bad spot can cause trouble. however, if it's a benign tumor just sitting there causing no
problems, watchful waiting makes sense. and from all of her -- twitter account that's what she's going to do. is watchful waiting. i think she's very smart. >> any link to breast cancer at all? >> no. none. benign tumor and i don't think any relationship. this was just an incidental finding. she's very smart. >> my mom had one. dr. nancy snyderman. now here's al. >> all right, thanks so much. we're all familiar with the age-old saying that of course sex sells. business buzz. our danny deutsche is going to talk about this one. two concepts, two ideas about sex selling. first of all, the animal rights group peta launching a website with adult content. why would they do this? >> first of all as far as sex sells. sex gets attention. it doesn't always sell. sex the wrong way can sell against you. i don't think by ever shocking you it's going to sell. their whole marketing has always been shock. we have such a noble cause to
save animals. to me as a marketer, if they do this xx thing and it draws people to your cause, as far as a cause anything goes. that's a smart idea. >> so you think this is going to work though? >> once again we're talking about it. so everything peta does is even if they get banned, even if they get looked down upon, they want to draw attention to their cause. so sex for attention, for their cause, works. >> new snickers ad they're using the fact you should eat chocolate before having a good time. >> it's not running here now. it's been talked about on a lot of websites. the ad, if you -- it will help you undo a woman's bra, now, that's of course ridiculous. what they're basically saying is hey, young guys, we get you. so they're not literally saying if people are oh, my god, what are they doing? no, everything they do, whether it's knocking down betty white in an ad or something like this, hey young 16-year-old dudes we get the way you think. it's called bonding with the consumer. sex is one way to do it. >> donny, thanks so much. >> you're a handsome man, by the way. >> thank you very much. i think you are, too.
now here's a beautiful woman, savannah. >> oh, my goodness. all right. the lillodown with attorney star jones. >> hey. >> talk about the george zimmerman case. he's obviously back in custody because a judge found that he had misled the court about his finances when the judge was setting bail. he's got another band hearing coming up. do you think he'll be let out? >> i actually think they're going to set a bail. i think it will prob i be much higher than the $150,000 initially set by the judge. there's going to be some testimony as to what they knew and when they knew it as it relates to him and his wife. i think one of the biggest issues is going to be the use of the website funds. what will they allow to be used? what will they allow to be used for the defense expenses or for bail? >> i want to talk about a case out in massachusetts. maybe one of 9 first of its kind. a teen texting and driving case. explain. >> it's the first time that there's been a conviction under this new vehicular manslaughter law that specifically speaks to texting and driving. he was 17 at the time, 18 now.
he's now been sentenced to 2 2345e6 years. he's got to actually do a year in prison with some community service. he's going to lose his driver's license for 15 years. what it says to me, savannah is, this and 389 other states, including the district of columbia, they're taking texting while driving very seriously. so we all should take it very seriously. >> you'll see more cases like this. star, thank you so much. coming up next, grammy winner chris brown on our plaza.
