7:02 am
>> that's your story and you're sticking with it. anyway, we're going to have a lot of fun with maria today. let's get to our top story on a friday morning. oscar pistorius convicted of culpable homicide by the judge in his trial. but avoiding the more serious charge of murder. today national investigative correspondent jeff rossen has covered this case from the very beginning. jeff, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt. good morning to you. hi drama in court this morning. this case stretching two years, this trial lasted six months, all comes down to this moment. in a nutshell, pistorius, as you mentioned, cleared of murder, the most serious charges. but he has been found guilty of a lesser crime, being negligent. moments ago, breaking news in this case. we're talking a couple minutes ago. a judge has said he could walk out of court today on bail. >> mr. pistorius, please stand up. >> reporter: the final verdict. everyone holding their breath. the bottom line, did oscar pistorius intend to kill?
7:03 am
did he murder his girlfriend, model reeva steenkamp. here's the judge. >> the accused is found not guilty and is discharged. instead he is found guilty of culpable homicide. >> reporter: it is a major victory for the defense and a massive blow to the prosecutor. the judge virtually ripping the state's case apart. >> evidence led by the state in respect to this count was purely circumstantial. it was not strong circumstantial evidence. >> reporter: she believes oscar pistorius, that he thought there was an intruder in the bathroom, and the judge went even further today, saying pistorius didn't act like a murderer. >> the conduct of the accused shortly after the incident is inconsistent with the conduct of someone with the intention to commit murder. he acted promptly in seeking
7:04 am
help soon after the incident. he shouted for help. he called a friend. he called 911. he called security. although he could not speak as he was crying. he prayed to god to save the deceased life. >> reporter: so he has been convicted of culpable homicide which in the u.s. we call involuntary manslaughter. what's the possible sentence here? >> at the judge's discretion. she could sentence him to zero days imprisonment or 15 years. also, saying he could only leave the house when he goes to work. the effect is, she will consider the level of negligence and the fact that an innocent person lost her life. >> reporter: important to note here, the prisonses in south africa are 170% overcrowded. we're told many people convicted of this, convicted of culpable homicide don't serve any time. in fact, they usually get suspended sentences, basically you're free to do what you want, unless you get into anymore trouble. of course, it is unclear what
7:05 am
the judge will do for a high-profile defendant like this. pistorius' sentencing happening now. we just learned on october 13th. so just over a month from now we'll be back to hear if oscar pistorius will get any jail time. but matt, he is walking out of here today. his bail extended, even though he has been convicted of culpable homicide. >> all right, jeff rossen in pretoria, thank you very much. lisa bloom is today's legal analyst. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> no premeditated murder, instead culpable homicide. are you surprised? >> i am a little bit surprised. i think premeditated murder, that's a tough one and the judge had good reasoning on rejecting the idea he intentionally killed reeva steenkamp. but that middle charge, murder. that's pretty controversial that she rejected that one. there's an important legal concept in south africa which i think we're going to start hearing a lot about. the judge said he didn't intend to kill her. but under south african law if you intend to kill one person and kill another person, under that legal theory, that's murder. >> even if that person you intend to kill is deemed a
7:06 am
threat to your safety by you? >> but the judge didn't find that he really felt this alleged intruder intended to kill him. and therefore, he shot in self defense. i have listened closely to her decision. she didn't say that. >> i was going to ask about ground for appeal. the prosecution under south african law can appeal this combination if they think the judge didn't get it right. the defense can also appeal and say there shouldn't have even been a conviction of culpable homicide. >> that's different. in the u.s., they can't appeal. i think they're also going to appeal that a lot of witnesses didn't want to testify because this was televised. >> the judge is known as being tough when it comes to sentencing. but there's a lot of leeway here. anything from no time in jail to 15 years. what do you think is going to happen? on october 13th? >> if we're going to make predictions, matt, look at the fact she let him out on bail today. i would say almost in every case in this decision when she had to choose between a conflict from the prosecution and defense, she
7:07 am
went with the defense. she clearly leans toward the defense in this case. i'm going to expect a low range in sentencing. anything from 0 to 15. i think it's going to be on the low end. >> lisa bloom, thank you very much. let's go over to maria. >> now to a massive manhunt in ohio overnight after three inmates escaped from prison. one of them, a 19-year-old serving a life sentence for killing three students during a school shooting. nbc's kevin tibbles has the latest. good morning, kevin. >> reporter: good morning, maria. you know, the entire state of ohio is waking up with a collective sigh of relief this morning after a young killer who opened fire on his own classmates was recaptured after a daring prison break. >> i can now confirm that we have heard from officials involved in the search that tj lane is now in custody. >> reporter: words of relief from police in lima, ohio, early this morning. as they announce that school shooter tj lane is in custody
7:08 am
after escaping from prison thursday night. lane was one of three inmates who escaped from the allen correctional institution. police say men who escaped on foot were unarmed, but considered dangerous. >> of the reason that he didn't get any farther than he was was because of the immediate perimeter. >> this is an ongoing investigation. we'll give more information as it comes about. >> we've got shots fired, multiple gunshots. >> reporter: on february 27th, 2012, lane opened fire in the chardon high school cafeteria, unloading at least ten shots from a .22-caliber handgun. three students died in the shooting. three others were injured. during his trial, lane was defiant in the courtroom, wearing a t-shirt with the word killer scrawled across his chest, smirking at victims' families and making obscene gestures. he was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
7:09 am
police moved quickly overnight to protect the victims' families, while school officials cancelled all friday classes. >> i would also like to thank the community, the outpouring of support. i know things will get better as they have before. >> reporter: even with lane back behind bars, it is worth repeating that the schools in chardon, a suburb of cleveland, will remain closed today. here in lima, official investigation as to how these three men got out of jail will get under way. the authorities say that tj lane was picked up no more than 100 yards from the prison behind me here. back to you guys. >> kevin tibbles, thank you so much. interesting. >> really is. meantime, the baltimore ravens were back in action last night, even as the scandal surrounding their former star, ray rice, deepened. nbc's national correspondent, peter alexander, has the latest on that. peter, nice to have you in new york. >> good morning. the ravens are now two games into their 2014 season. and think about this. if this latest video about rice
7:10 am
punching his then fiancee was not released, rice would be back on the field beginning next weekend. instead he has been kicked out of the nfl indefinitely and the league is under tough new scrutiny. with the ravens returning to action -- >> drills it way through the back of the end zone -- >> reporter: most guys are focused on what's happening off the field and the role of nfl commissioner roger goodell. espn reports ray rice told goodell three months ago that he punched his then fiancee in the face, a claim that contradicts goodell's statement this week to cbs news. >> when we met with ray rice and his representatives, it was ambiguous about what actually happened. >> reporter: goodell said the latest video released by tmz sports was inconsistent with what rice told him. a source with knowledge of the meeting tells espn rice made it clear he had hit her and told goodell he was sorry and it wouldn't happen again. the nfl just announced an independent investigation to be spearheaded by former fbi director, robert mueller and art
7:11 am
rooney of the pittsburgh steelers who stressed our sole motive here is to get the truth. the findings will be made public. >> the bottom line, there are two owners who have franchised they're collectively worth over $3 billion a piece together. i think it's very important for them to make sure that whatever comes out is accurate, is transparent and rapid. >> reporter: outside the ravens' stadium, a surprising number of female fans were still wearing rice jerseys, including at least one who blamed the victim. >> she struck him first. and any woman who can hit a man can be hit back. >> reporter: thursday night's nfl broadcast had a distinctly different feel. cbs sports, in light of the rice scandal, changed its pregame show, dropping a comedic segment and its opening sequence set to music by rihanna, herself a victim of domestic violence. the nfl is also under fire for other domestic violence cases. the carolina panthers' owner, jerry richardson, broke down publicly this week. >> my stance is not one of
7:12 am
indifference. i stand firmly against domestic violence. plain and simple. >> reporter: critics are furious the panthers, greg hardy, is still being allowed to play, despite being convicted of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend in july. hardy is currently appealing the conviction. so about this investigation, roger goodell has promised full cooperation by the nfl and its employees. investigators and workers at the casino where the video was made don't have to cooperate. and as for goodell's status, earlier this week, before the independent investigation was launched, john mara, giants owner, one of the guys overseeing the investigation, released a statement saying the idea that goodell's job is in jeopardy is, quote, misguided. wrong way to go on this one. >> yeah, although questions remain about whether he can survive this situation. and actually, we've got carson over in the orange room. we're going to ask kind of a blublt question today, carson. >> we are, matt. he please, everybody, go to today.c
7:13 am there is the survey. we'll be specific here. should roger goodell step down, a simple yes or no. log on now, we'll have results asap. matt, back to you. >> carson, thank you very much. >> we were all talking about that sound bite of that woman. >> that woman that says if she hits a man, she deserves to be hit. >> horrific. complicated subject. coming up, we talk to robin givens, speaking about her own experience with domestic violence in the wake of this scandal. meantime, natalie has the latest on the president's vow to take down isis. >> i do. good morning, everyone. leaders now from at least ten arab countries have vowed to do their share to help defeat isis. this as new estimates by the cia reveal the terror group's numbers are growing significantly. nbc's chief war correspondent, richard engel, is in northern iraq for us. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. secretary kerry is in turkey as he is continuing to try and build a coalition against isis. but critics in the region say
7:14 am
the u.s. plan lacks clarity and underestimates the challenge. ♪ the cia now estimates isis has 20 to 30,000 fighters controlling an area roughly the size of maryland. but the administration isn't declaring war on isis. instead, choosing its words very carefully. >> i believe what we are engaged in is not a full-fledged war like we were before. it's a heightened level of counterterrorism operation. >> reporter: secretary kerry was in saudi arabia to enlist the help of arab leaders who he says have a vital role in the fight against isis. >> i think the ingredients are there. whether it gets mixed correctly and bakes properly oever the course of the next months and year or so, we'll have to say. but i think and the president believes the ingredients are there. >> reporter: but baking those ingredients will require a vast amount of work, luck and money. first ingredient, building a

rebel syrian army. the fighters will need weapons, intelligence and logistics. next, rebuilding the iraqi army. after several of its divisions show cowardess and ran from isis. and in northern iraq, the u.s. is also equipping kurdish fighters. the front lines are constantly shifting. isis militants are less than three miles from here. the plan is for these kurdish fighters to drive them out. but to do that, they're going to need a lot of help. the kurds have advanced as far as this mountaintop position. but just below, the villages are still held by isis. that kurdish general in charge of the mountaintop position told us that in this area, at least, american air strikes have been precise and effective, because the kurds are passing intelligence to american advisers. the problem is, in other areas, the u.s. does not have local

7:34 am
we've got this video, and i know that it's very difficult. it's appalling. it's heart-wrenching. it's shocking. but we get to see in many respects what's gone on behind closed doors. we can't pretend that it's not happening. and i think so much of what i've talked about in my life or what i've heard women talk about the past 20 years when i've talked to them, it's -- one of the things, it's hard to be believed. >> right. >> being believed is an issue. >> you told me last night that this is still a very emotional issue for you. >> it is. >> coming here to talk about it, you have to relive it. >> yes. it's amazing, because the past kind of becomes very much a part of your present. i feel attached to her in many respects. and it's -- i'm speaking for myself. i don't want to speak for her. but i understand her. but -- >> are you talking about janay? >> yes, but i would like to think i've been a voice for a lot of women. i would like to think there is a purpose. even talking to you, part of me didn't want to get involved in

7:36 am
say? >> absolutely. because i think it's hard for people to wrap their minds around this. i think it's hard to be the woman and wrap your mind around this happening. i think it's hard to be a person listening to somebody. you don't want this to be true. >> are you surprised when you hear a woman like we saw on the news earlier this morning saying, hey, she hit him first, she deserves it. >> it's -- i'm not surprised, because i've heard it. i've heard, what have you done, what did you say to him, stop saying that. why is it that the victimizer becomes the victim? why is it that we want to protect these men? what is it about our society, what is it about us as women that feels the need to protect them? >> well, you wrote yourself about saying after it happened, you went from don't talk to me again to wanting to protect him. >> i think that -- we talked about it being complicated. that's -- first of all, the embarrassment one feels. you feel embarrassed with yourself, first and foremost. it's very difficult to share. and a strange thing happens. you want to then start protecting the person and consoling the person that really
7:37 am

back to school and go oh, yeah, did you watch the niners game this weekend? >> reporter: in 1981, the 49ers won the nfc championship and the young girl's heart. >> caught by clark! >> reporter: with a catch. >> this play happened, and we were all jumping up and down. we were like, oh, my god! and it started my love for dwight clark and joe montana. >> reporter: hang and her seven siblings reenacted the play every day. >> sometimes the cornerback would throw it at the receiver and we would be like no, you have to throw it really high so i have to jump up to get it. once you solidify that memory and all those good feelings, i don't know that anyone can replace that in your heart. art has always been a part of my life. when i was doing the pieces, i wanted to create something that was personal to me. knowing that it was going to be in the stadium, you know, i wanted to also make it really vibrant. i wanted it to have lots of reds.
8:23 am
>> reporter: hang has painted much more than a canvas. for a family of immigrants, she has painted the american dream. >> you gather to watch the game, you gather to go to the game. you gather to play the game. i love football, because it brings families together. it brings communities together. >> and we're joined now by hang nguyen, who would go on to become not just a football fan, but a very accomplished artist. we should say three of your pieces are actually here in the stadium itself. we asked you to paint a very special one indeed. and i'm going to do the reveal. we asked you to paint one that really meant a lot to you, to pick a moment from san francisco 49ers' history, and, of course, there can be only one moment. and that's the catch. dwight clark's big touchdown reception from joe montana. what is -- when you see that, what do you see? >> i see the hero of the catch. dwight clark. and i also -- as you saw in the segment, my siblings and i used
8:24 am
to recreate the catch, you know, in home. the only sad thing is, i never got to be dwight clark. so this painting let me cast a gi girl, a young girl, as the hero of the play. >> and obviously, it meant something to you personally as much as it meant what would go on to me to this franchise. i am no expert. it is gorgeous. we do have a local art critic of some renown. >> okay. >> so if he could now join us, get a real sense of what -- >> of this painting. >> how are you? >> it's dwight clark. >> oh, wow. >> it's very nice to meet you. >> my goodness. >> i love your painting. i think it's beautiful. >> did i do justice? >> you did. you did. you did an outstanding job. >> oh, my gosh. >> reporter: this is the moment. and i know you get this a lot. but what is it to know how much it meant to her? >> well, it's just an honor. i mean, it's a big play in my
8:25 am
life. but it's an honor. i loved hearing her story, and it's an honor that it meant that much to her that she would draw this and tell this story. thank you for that. >> reporter: dwight, you come bearing some gifts. >> i do. we know you're a huge 49er fan. so we would like you and three guests -- >> oh, my gosh. >> reporter: to come to the game on sunday night at levi stadium. >> wow. >> reporter: and then -- >> thank you. . >> you're going to be part of history now because you'll be on the sideline for pregame when the 49ers take the field. >> oh, my gosh. >> for the first time. all right? but you only get to do that if you wear number 87. >> yes! >> again, while she gathers herself, we want to thank you, divide, for being here. and we also want to hear your stories. please log on to tell us your story and perhaps you'll win a chance to attend super bowl xlix. maria? >> thanks, josh. you can catch the 49ers take on the chicago bears sunday night on nbc. coverage starts at 7:00 eastern with "football night in

"usa today's" cover of the sports section, check this out. female fans stand by ray rice. a lot of women last night wearing the ray rice jersey. the ravens-steelers game in baltimore. a lot of people shocked that a lot of women were wearing those jerseys. at the game, two women defending ray rice. listen.
9:03 am
>> she struck him first. and any woman who can hit a man can be hit back. >> i love ray rice. he's done a lot for baltimore. even though i don't condone what he did. okay? i'm not saying that what he did was right. >> but -- >> yeah. >> i don't know what to say. >> i think it says it all right there. >> yeah. and i think actually maria shriver had a wonderful interview with robin givens earlier this morning. and robin had written an op-ed in "time" magazine about domestic violence and why i stayed. it's really interesting to hear her perspective when she talked about why she stayed with mike tyson for so long back in 1988. take a listen. >> are you surprised when you hear a woman like we saw on the news earlier this morning saying, hey, she hit him first, she deserves it? >> it's -- i'm not surprised, because i've heard it. i've heard what have you done, what did you see to him. stop saying that. why is it that the victimizer becomes the victim?
9:04 am
why is it that we want to protect these men? what is it about our society, what is it about us as women that feels the need to protect them? >> fascinating point. >> it's true. and she made the point, again, that she views this as, you know, having the video out there. this is a watershed moment, because it is in some ways helping women see. you know, this is generally what happens behind closed doors. and if women are victims of domestic abuse, they now are seeing this and acknowledging, this is real. this is very much a problem. and she says this is a game-changer when it comes to talk about domestic violence. and coming to realize, like, i shouldn't be living like this. >> but you worry when you see reaction like that. >> yeah. >> at the stadium. that people who are -- women who are victims of domestic violence, they -- are they afraid, because are people going to take them seriously. >> right. >> the only reason all of this happened was because of two
9:05 am
pieces of video that came to light. if those pieces of video had never come to light -- >> would have been behind closed doors. >> to robin's point about protecting the aggressor, that's exactly what happened in this case. the baltimore ravens, the nfl, everybody said let's figure out how to handle this as a pr crisis. not as a crime. but as a pr crisis. remember, they put out that awful tweet where janay palmer regrets her role in the incident, blaming her for this. >> and the press conference where she said that, pretty much. she regretted she played a part in that. >> yeah. >> it was hard to watch. >> we were talking about this earlier this morning. we have been talking about this every day now for a week. i hope something good comes out of it so that all of our daughters and sons now know as a society this is how we feel about it. that we don't tolerate it, it's not okay, not acceptable. >> and i do too. but i always worry, whenever there is a crisis we talk about it for about a week. >> right. >> and then something else happens. and we move on. >> we move on. >> we forget about it. i hope this is not the case. >> yeah.
9:06 am
and adding to that, i thi think maria asked that question to robin. she said do you think this is finally going to make a difference or is it going to be a story we just talked about and move on and forget about it? and she said because men this time, especially men in the nfl, are expressing their outrage and they're so shocked and horrified and because we're all talking about it, man and woman alike are saying the same thing. perhaps this time it will make a difference. and, you know, we'll see. >> i hope so. i really do. it was a wild night in baseball last night. >> wow. >> speaking of sports. >> crazy. >> three batters in the big leagues last night getting hit by pitches. first let's start with the worst. this is marlins' superstar, could be the mvp of the national league, giancarlo stanton, takes a fastball in the face. >> hard to watch that. >> in the face! oh, my gosh. he was taken off the field on a stretcher. taken to the hospital. suffered multiple facial fractures, a laceration, has dental damage. obviously needed a bunch of stitches. brewers' pitcher mike fires, his
9:07 am

10:13 am
that's used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. invokana® is a once-daily pill that works around the clock to help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in, and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol. do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash,
10:14 am
swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana®. imagine loving your numbers. ask your doctor about invokana®. the older we get, the more we start or it worry about whether we have enough saved up for retirement. but the realtime to start thinking about that is when you're young. how much should you put away and what should you you have in your
10:15 am
nest feg you're a boomer? >> here with all the answers is suze orman. it's very popular as you are, okay. >> did you just hear the opening of the show you said that the time to start saving is when you are young, hoda. >> it was in the copy. >> okay. >> still young compared to frank. i mean, it's never too late to start. >> yeah, everything has changed. the way, i mean my mom worked for years, she's able to retirement and they have a great retirement program, but a lot of people don't have that. >> here's the difference, years ago when you retired, you did, you got a pension, paid your health insurance, things weren't as expensive as they are now. today you have to fund your retirement, you have to pay your health insurance, today the cost of school, education, everything is so out of sight that if you do not start saving for retirement when you are young -- >>ish. >>ish. >> and vibrant and have a great job. >> you're going to really have to work. the other thing is we're all

living longer, you guys. do you know that the average length of life was 65 when they first brought out social security? they never expected people to live long enough to collect social security. >> if you can wait until you're 70 to retire, and then start collecting, most people are going to have to work, this is not me with anything, i'm just delivering what i think is true, i think most people are going to have to work until at least 70 and shouldn't probably take social security until 70. >> full-time? >> wow. >> this could help people. myself included. okay. when you're starting out in your 20s, how much should you stock away per month if you want to save for retirement and in your 20s, you're not thinking about retirement, you're thinking about buying a car. >> the key is the sooner you begin, the more the money has to compound which means it earns more the more you will have. you start in the 20s and stay until you're 65 and do $500 a month. you would have about $1.8 million. >> is that enough? >> it could very easily generate

10:31 am
many women are used to dealing with men that are not honest. if he's still hung up on it, you at least need to know. how are you going to know, ask him why they broke up. what was it? it was about the person, the good question is was it to do with the woman you're with or the stage of your life? well it's a bit of both, which one it was more of. so busy with work. then you know those excuses are the common denominator. you have to talk to him about that and get to know him. >> but it might be a way of keeping the relationship from going deeper. >> it's just convenient for him to say, i'm really not over it. he may be over her. >> that's what men do. the wounded card. i'm so heart. >> i want to have a sexual relationship with you, but i don't want you to take it seriously. >> ice god because you can have it both ways. >> we're on to you now. >> okay, now we have a skype question from ashley. ashley, what's your question?
10:32 am
>> hi, i'm ashley. i'm 26 years old, and matthew, i've heard you say that it's public to meet men everywhere we go, well, i'm always holding my head up, always smiling, i have a positive attitude, i like to let people know i'm into it, how do i get guys my age to go past just text messaging and asking me out? >> good question. >> okay. every guy wants that combination of being able to chase you, but also feeling like he's going to get a yes somewhere in the process. you don't want to be too easy, but not too difficult. just smiling and positive attitude won't do. i remember very recently i was walk tlaug hotel lobby with three guy friends, and there was a group of women walking in the other direction, and a couple of them smiled, and they gave us every sign that they wanted us to talk to them. and we still didn't. >> why? why didn't you? >> because we're idiots. we're guys. we go they probablimented to talk to us. >> here's what they did do,
10:33 am

all right. used to be if you saw a therapist you kept it hush hush, over the years, seeking help has become talked about just like going to the gym is. >> and recommending it is no longer taboo, or jerry seinfeld didn't think so when he suggested therapy to george. >> you need help, regular psychiatrist couldn't help you. you need to go to like vienna or something. you need to get involved at the university level, like where freud studied and have people looking at you. that's the kind of help you need. not the once a week for 80 bigs, you need a team. >> how do you know when it's time and if it's really working. >> here with insight is the
10:54 am
michael list, the clinical psychologist. >> we love it when you come because you give really good advice. >> yeah, you're smart. when is it right to see a therapist? i think there are people who find themselves in broken relationships or lost a loved one or something like that -- >> struggling. >> you need something. when should you go? >> it's when you see repeating patterns like i've done this before, i've had this fight before. or the same relationship over and over again. like, i daylighted this man -- dated this man before. he had a mustache last time, now it's not working. or if you find yourself going back to the same patterns. if off bad day at work and you always hit the bars hard or you always do retail therapy to the point where you've got big credit card bills. >> i think people think, i have a good friend or sister or husband or somebody, i don't need a shrink. i'm fine with that. is that sometimes enough? >> sometimes it is, but, the
10:55 am
value of having a therapist is someone that's outside of your circle of friends. because imagine that you're disclosing something really personal to a friend, you go like about a boyfriend or something like that, and you go on a double date with that person, how uncomfortable because you've talked about your boyfriend. having therapist is someone that is outside of your sucker m, but also that's -- outside of your circle, but also someone that's trained. >> do some people use it as basically to fill the void of a loneliness in their life. say they don't have friends and all of the sudden, their psychiatrist becomes the one person that listens to them. but that's unhealthy as well, isn't it? >> absolutely. sort of a dependence on therapy. if you find you're always going to your therapist and you need to ask them before you make any decisions. that's a red flag that it's time to -- >> that's neurooutic. >> what do you know its worked? what when are you cured? >> i have friends still going, i'm like you're still going, it's like years after the fact. when is it over?
10:56 am
>> that's a great question. i think the thing has to do with action. you know, insight into your problems is helpful, but it's about action. if you're doing something different in your life to make changes that are significant, that's how you know that therapy is working. and if you're not taking action in your life, then it's probably time to consider something else. >> are there problems that you have to carry? you think about people, i mean these are big things, people been through world war ii, big, big, big things that you can't untangle. like certain tragedies in life, you just have to carry and be a productive person, don't you sometime? >> you do. >> you can't fix it. >> you can't fix those experiences, but what you can do is transform those into something for other people. so for example, if you take --away, like help other people been through similar experiences or make an art out of something or writing about it can be helpful for other people. >> and finding the right therapist isn't always easy. how do you know who to go to? >> you know, i think it has to do with fits. you know, having the initials at
10:57 am
the end of your name does not make you good. it's about who you are -- >> same thing with any doctor. >> that's right. >> just show up, meet them, and find out. >> and keep trying. it's like i think about it like dating. you wouldn't necessarily marry the first person you started dating. and the same thing with a therapist, if it doesn't feel right, keep going. >> ultimately, you should end, then not just pay their rent for the rest of their lives. >> that's right. >> thank you, good to see you. >> next week, jada pinkett smith will be with us. >> and what a, wow. guess who else? your boyfriend craig ferguson. >> and bryce dallas howard will be here. >> everyone has a story, and have we got one for you, have an awesome weekend everybody. see you on monday.
