we'll talk to her about what they're going through there. >> we'll see you for local updates in just minutes. get them any time at nbc10.com. good morning. breaking overnight. an american cameraman working for nbc news in liberia died from ebola. he and the team he was with, including dr. nancy snyderman, to be evacuated to the u.s. today. today, nancy and the parents of that cameraman join us, live. 90-mile-per-hour winds ripping the roof off the college dorm. more than 250,000 people without power and this morning, millions more from pennsylvania to georgia are now in that system's path. biggest breach ever? banking giant jp morgan chase reveals 83 million accounts were compromised in a massive cyber attack. how concerned should you be?
double standard? incredibly revealing social experiment, actors pretending to be a couple fighting on the street. he attacks her. [ bleep ] [ bleep ]. >> then she attacks him zblie wasn. >> i wasn't cheating on you. >> you wouldn't believe how differently witnesses reacted "today," friday, october 3rd, 2014. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer, along with tamron hall. tamron is here while savannah is on maternity leave. natalie morales and dylan dreyer join us as well. al is making his way back from afghanistan. it seems every day this week we've had some new development in the ebola scare and today is
no exception. now it's hit home. dr. nancy is with us from monrovia. how is this young man, ashoka mukpo doing? >> hi, matt. he sounded this morning well. it's been 48 hours. of course, when he realized that he had a fever and was feeling achy in this environment, the word ebola pops to the top of everyone's mind. he was quarantined overnight, 48 hours ago, got his test. it turned out to be positive and at that point, it's all been a matter of logistics of stabilizing him. he is with doctors without borders and will be air lifted out to a medical center in the united states. but he's good. the amount of virus in his body is low. he should have a very good prognosis. >> obviously there's a larger team there in liberia, nancy,
with you. so the question is, how long had you been working with him? and how close was the contact between you and the other members of the team with him once he became symptomatic? >> well, once he became symptomatic, we only spent two hours together. he and i were working in a workplace and he told me that he wasn't feeling well. he joined us 72 hours earlier as an independent journalist and had been in the hospital -- had been in the country two weeks prior to that. so, my suspicion is that he was infected before we met him. and then he became symptomatic once we met him. we shared a work space. we shared vehicles. we shared equipment. but everyone here is hyper alert. we have not been in close proximity. no one shakes hands. there's no hugging. so i do believe that our team, while we are being hyper vigilant, we are at very, very, very low risk for becoming ill. >> and yet you're going to fly out today.
you're monitoring your temperature quite a few times through the day. from my understanding, once you get back to the united states, you're going to self quarantine for up to 21 days? >> yes. we are taking this very, very, very cautious -- we're approaching this very cautiously and probably more judiciously than others. we will self quarantine on our own, take our temperature twice a day. if i, we, have a fever, obviously we'll then get tested. but the norm is because you must come into contact with bodily fluids, vomit, diarrhea, blood, urine or sweat directly, because we have not had that kind of exposure, even though i was in an ebola isolation unit, i was wearing protective gear. i disrobed according to protocol. we have recognized and observed
universal precautions here and we're going to extend that for 21 days out of courtesy and respect to our colleagues and the united states citizens. >> that certainly makes sense. nancy, please wish ashoka mukpo our very best. the reason we're doing a phone interview with nancy this morning is because all the camera gear they've been using to bring this story back to the united states is now being disinfected and can't be used. nancy, thank you very much. >> thank you. dr. mitchell levie and diana mukpo are with us now. thank you both for joining us this morning. >> good morning, tamron. thanks for having us. >> good morning. >> dr. levie, let me start with you. i know you spoke with your son on the phone. what can you tell us about his spirits and what he has told you regarding his condition. >> i just talked to him early this morning. and his spirits seem better today. i think, obviously, he is scared and worried he has been filming
what's happening in liberia for two weeks and seeing the death and tragedy and now it's really hit home for him. but his spirits are better today. he knows he's going to come home. he knows he just has a couple more days and still his symptoms are fairly mild. just a mild fever. i was really happy to hear how he's doing, walking around. more cheerful. tender but cheerful today. >> diandiana, as a mother, i ca imagine the worry and stress you are experiencing. what more did he tell you regarding the conditions there and the care he specifically is receiving as he waits a trip back to the u.s.? >> he is receiving the best care possible that they can offer him, doctors without borders, in monrovia. sti still, it can't possibly, because of the lack of resources, compare to what will be available to him when he returns to the united states.
the enormous anxiety i haves a mother or we share as parents is the delay between now and him leaving on sunday. the state department has been fantastic. they've been compassionate. i cannot say how much i appreciate how wonderful the government is being. that doesn't take away from the fact that he's still going to be in liberia until sunday and i can only hope and pray that his symptoms don't worsen. >> dr. levie, when you spoke with your son, you told him how proud you are of him and that he return to that country to expose what was happening, the plight of the thousands who died and the social situation on the ground there. >> yes. he spent two years in monrovia working with a nongovernment organization and really made a strong connection to the liberian people and he felt strongly when he started to hear what was going on and wanted to
go back and see if he could make a difference. i was obviously conflicted as a parent but really proud that he has the integrity and desire to do something good and went back to monrovia. i'm happy that he has that kind of integrity and also concern that he put himself in harm's way to do that. >> dr. mitchell levie and diana mukpo, thank you so much under these circumstances. >> they must be so worried. >> thank you. >> nancy writebol, one of the first americans to contract ebola, just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how sorry we are to hear the news of the cameraman that has tested positive for ebola. please know we will be praying for all of you. we are praying god will bring this deadly virus to an end. obviously, this news spreading quickly. in the meantime, we're learning more about why thomas duncan, the first person diagnosed with ebola here in the u.s., was allowed back into the community after going to the community
with symptoms that have virus. and some of the people who had contact with duncan now quarantined as a precaution are speaking out. kate snow is in dallas. kate, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. at the apartment where duncan had been living, people are under quarantine and now are complaining that they're sitting inside the very place that he got so desperately ill. cleaners are expected to show up to that apartment complex to do an intensive sanitization of the place. the hospital late last night finally clarified how it was that duncan went to the e.r. one week ago today and was sent back home. the hospital says when thomas eric duncan came to the e.r. last friday he had a fever and other symptoms that could have been caused by many things. when asked, the hospital says he told a nurse he had not been around anyone ill. he said the same thing before boarding a plane to leave liberia. he did tell a nurse that he was
in liberia. now disease detectives are on a frontic search to -- >> did not and he was -- check with the people in dallas and obviously as the head of the centers of disease control so concerned about the spread of this virus where -- hot zone basically to come and sanitize the place. it's unclear if the cleaning has happened yet. a food bank sent in a three-day
supply of meals, leaving the boxes outside the door. down the street, also quarantined, the daughter of duncan's girlfriend, her husband and four kids, ages 2 to 11. i spoke with her by phone. her young kids spent a lot of time near duncan last weekend. >> maybe they would be like hugging him, maybe he would be kissing. we just pray to god he hasn't spread it to them or us. >> reporter: his mother record this had video message for her son. >> i want to hug you, for you to hug me, for us to see each other. >> he really needs help. this is suffering. this is not the way anyone would want to go down in history. >> reporter: the president, meantime, called the dallas mayor yesterday to make sure they have all the resources they need here. meantime, back in liberia, the government there says they will prosecute duncan for what they say he said on that questionnaire when he was leaving liberia. they say he lied when he said he had no contact with anyone ill
with ebola. matt? >> kate snow in dallas. kate, thank you very much. earlier this morning, we talked to dr. tom frieden and i asked him about why the apartment where thomas duncan was staying in wasn't immediately cordoned off and cleaned. >> the details of that, you would have to refer to the folks in dallas. this is, after all, the first time we've ever had a case of ebola in the u.s. when things removed, that's done safely, that it won't be disposed of in any way that would potentially be a risk. >> you say we have to check with the people in dallas, but this was a week. and, obviously, as the head of the centers for disease control, so concerned about the spread of this virus, is it acceptable that an apartment would be in that condition, a hot zone basically, for a week after that patient left that building? >> we have had our staff working with the local authorities. we understand that bleach has been used and this is something we expect to get resolved today.
>> it seemed like it took an awful lot of time to have that taken care of. >> yes, it does seem that way. we'll have more, of course, throughout the morning. natalie is here with stunning new revelations on a massive security breach. we're getting more details now. >> among the largest cyber attacks ever discovered at a financial institution. jp morgan chase disclosing a recent data breach compromised millions of private accounts and businesses. >> the nation's largest bank, jp morgan chase announcing more than 76 million consumers, 7 million small businesses may have been affected. more consumers than target and home depot's hack attacks. customers who use chase.com and jp morgan.com and as well as the chase and jp morgan mobile apps. customer names, addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses may
have been stolen. although so far there's no evidence that account numbers, passwords or social security numbers have been stolen. jp morgan chase also has not yet seen any unusual fraud activity stemming from the breach. many consider this hack attack much more troubling than the others because of the sensitive nature of financial information and accounts. natalie? >> cnbc's courtney reagan, thank you very much. could we see another bush in the white house? former president george w. bush revealed thursday during an interview with fox news that his brother, jeb, is considering running in 2016. >> i think he wants to be president. i think he would be a great president. he understands what it's like to be president for not only the person running or serving, plus family. >> former president bush says his brother is a very thoughtful man and doesn't believe jeb has made a final decision yet. stay tuned on that one. >> a wild chase ends in dramatic fashion on a southern california
freeway. a man suspected of grand theft took the police on a chase through orange county, occasionally driving on the wrong side of the road. the truck careens off the freeway, goes airborne, flips on to its side. the man was uninjured and able to climb out. he did is your undsurrender to don't look down. two men were trapped on a high rise. they gave the window washers ropes and you see one of them pulling himself up the side of the building until he finally reached the rooftop where rescue crews then pulled him to safety. >> i would need full anesthesia. they would have to put me out and drag me out of there. >> my gosh! goodness. >> i know. olympic gold medal skier lindsay vaughn is back on the slopes after suffering those two
debilitating knee injuries. she told "the new york times" she still has the 2018 winter olympics firmly in her sights and the world championship in february in vail. >> her hometown. good to see her in action. >> dylan has a check of the weather. >> there's not much that will stop a tv news crew. take a look at this video from texas outside the hospital. winds were gusting at 90 miles per hour. it was tossing the tents, tossing all the lights and all the cameras. and that was just a taste of some of these storms that moved through. we had damaging winds and flooding rains move through the area and it all came through right around rush hour. so, it was very nasty in texas yesterday. today, though, we're still looking at this cold front. you can see it stretching from the great lakes right down into

we're wrapping up our special "pink power" series, to start breast cancer awareness month. we've been very proud to have joan lunden as our special correspondent. she joins us again on this friday morning. this time with a little twist. to answer your questions. carson is in the orange room, along with radiologist dr. susan drostman to help us out as well. joan, welcome back. >> thank you. good to be here. >> are you ready for this? we've got a lot of questions. >> oh, my gosh. >> we've been inundated with people asking questions. a lot of people asked this same question. elizabeth from facebook asked you mentioned you had a normal mammogram and the problem developed in an ultrasound. why did you have the ultrasound? should i ask my doctor to do this as a follow-up? >> this is the resounding question. because i had the new 3-d mammogram, which they are great if you have what's called fatty tissue in your breast. but if you have dense fieb
fiberous tissue, you need an ultrasound. >> we have a radiologist in the orange room. >> she's great. if it's more than 50% dense, you really need to have that ultrasound because they can't read -- she gave me a great analogy. she said in a snowstorm, you can't see the snowball. and if the snowball is a tumor and it's in the midst of all the dense tissue, it's literally impossible to see in a mammogram. that's the analogy. >> mammography is the early screening tool but it doesn't do the entire job. it falls short in dense breasts, as you have experienced. so, women who have dense breasts need to be their own advocates. they need to ask for a breast ultrasound. most radiologists will bring that up. but if they don't, patients need to say, are my breast dense? if that's the case, ultrasound should be our next modeality
that that is used. >> carson, you're getting more questions? >> from our chicago affiliate, do you have any advice for women who recently -- they get the diagnosis, how do you get them from that initial shock and fear to ready to fight? >> well, breast cancer is a team approach. there's a radiologist that often makes the diagnosis initially. and then a breast surgeon gets involved and in some cases a medical oncologist and a radiation oncologist. but the most important thing is that patients need to be their own advocates. they need to do some research. breast cancers are all very different. breast cancers are not created equal. one person's treatment may be very different from another person's treatment. be your own advocate. >> that's really what makes this such a challenging journey for women. because you're almost like shot like at meteoric speed from the radiologist on to a breast cancer doctor and if you happen to have triple negative like me,
where there are no markers, there can't be targeted therapy, you have to do chemotherapy. then you're sent to the oncologist. and i'm telling you, you can go to three different doctors, you can get three different opinions and then you're left to make -- to be your own patient advocate but you're making these decisions and you feel like i'm not the medical professional. >> by the way, it's also a diagnosis, not only for the patient, but for a family. >> oh, absolutely. >> for an entire family. i know you've had a lot of support. we have a question here we want to read you. kimberly says i'm 9 years old and my older sister just got her ears pierced. don't you think it's only fair i get mine done, too? >> you're going to switch it up on me? >> you know who kimberly is? >> yes. that's my daughter, kimberly. >> i mentioned family. >> oh, my gosh. >> we have your kids, twins kate and max, jack and kim plus your son-in-law, evan and your new granddaughter.
>> oh, my gosh! >> this is team lunden in many ways. >> this is definitely team lunden and sarah, who works with me, and my lindsay who works with me, she's on maternity leave right now because she and evan just had -- stand over here. had little parker, who is 1-month-old. >> front and center. >> and jamie, lindsay and sarah, they grew up with me kind of in the land of television. and now we're all -- this is the joy, you know. there's -- you have to live in the moment. you can't be afraid of what you're going through, because you can't forget to enjoy the joy that's happening in your life. >> sarah, mom is going through this, not only as a personal diagnosis, but in a public way. she's a public figure. >> yeah. >> has that changed the way you, as a family, have dealt with this? >> yeah. we've all grown up, really, with our mom in the public eye. and to see her go through this with such strength and bravery, i think that we can really all learn something from that and take a page from her book as we fight our own battles in life.
>> we are so thrilled to have all of you here. >> and you're waiting a few years for your pierced ears, sweetheart. >> that's the bad news. >> even though hers are very pretty. >> thanks for your grace, joan. thanks for your candor this whole week. i think you've helped a lot of people. all right, team lunden. we appreciate it. >> thank you, matt. and team lunden. aretha franklin has blown the lid off of this as she sings the great diva classics. and with us, the queen of soul. good morning. >> good morning to you. >> let me read a few of the things people have said about this cover. mtv "rolling in the deep" cover demands your r-e-s-p-e-c-t. that rare remake that gives the original a run for its money. even the most protective adele fans won't mind once they hear it. >> wow! >> listen, you are the queen.

i thought of that as a marketing scheme, but something about all the pink, it did make me go home that night and do a self breast exam. found a lump. so at the ripe old age of 36 i went in for my first mammogram. the radiologist said, you have massive and aggressive breast cancer. you need to be seen immediately. i didn't even check out with the nursing staff. i just walked out, down three flights of stairs where tj was sitting in the minivan, walked around the car so the kids couldn't see me and literally laid on the ground and started sobbing. >> the surgeon found three tumors and two different types of breast cancer. while her life changed in an instant, beth resolved to keep her children's routines the same. >> we decided that cancer was not the kids' fault. they would not be negatively affect bid this as much as possible. tumbling has been an important.
make moms do the makeup. it was a way for me to disguise i was not feeling well, showing up at the competition. they would always come up with silly questions about hair loss, how did they glue your boob back on? appropriate things that were going on in our lives. >> beth's prognosis is now excellent. and she and her husband returned to boston for the wedding of someone very important to their story. >> tj's best friend is getting married. he is the guy who blew us off and let us go to the bengals game. >> your story is so inspirational to us, you're going to be the team captain. >> i never saw myself as a breast cancer advocate. >> thank you, sir. >> after what you've already been through, nothing -- >> i have also been given an opportunity to educate women of any age that they have a risk. had the patriots been in town any other month that year i wouldn't have found my breast cancer. i wouldn't have survived.
>> beth is here with tj and her two children. adelaide and liam. you look like you had a blast at the game. how are you doing now? you look great. >> feeling great. powering through. almost the end of this battle. >> it's just wonderful to have you here, to be able to hear this story. you know, i know nfl teams like to give game balls for the big stars of the game. i think it's fair to say, you're as big a star as we've got. tj, i want to let you then do the honors here. something very special. >> yes. >> you're mvp. thank you for making it through this with us. we love you. >> thank you. >> please thank your friend for bailing on you again. wonderful thing. something very special. the little one we saw tumbling through the piece has a little something for her mother as well. so, this is a very special surprise that she's going to read. >> dear mommy, for the past year, you've carried us, our
whole life, family. so the pate res want you to come to the game sunday night and lead the way in front of more than 150 women who survived breast cancer. they are going to form a pink ribbon and you will carry their banner, just like you carried us. thank you for being strong for us. i love you. >> very good. thank you. mommy loves you. >> so we'll see you sunday night then in new england. >> thank you so much. that would be great. yes. >> and thank you. thank you for sharing your story. especially in this month. how important a story it is. i can't thank you all enough. >> thank you. >> to the steele family and you're rocking that top. let me just bring it back to the girl stuff here. great job. congratulations to you. because you got engaged. >> i did. that's actually true. >> congratulations. >> she put a ring on it.

recipes. this is a serious book, by the way. this is real good. we're going to get at it. if you're coming into the kitchen, set yourself up for speed. >> the book is set up that way. this is recipes the way they were meant to be written. and they are written so that even people who don't know how to cook can get into the kitchen and start cooking. and some very basic stuff. you have your work surface clean, except for the stuff you are usually going to use, oil, salt and peppers. spoons, knives. >> those are things you should always stock up on? >> a kitchen that has a good pantry, the kind of things you need, stock and grains and so on. but this is really a revolutionary way to cook. we're going to look at this here. >> we're going to do chicken parm, one of my favorites, eggplant parm, in about half the time it would take normally. where do we get started ? >> if you would slice some of that egg plant. what we're doing here -- actually, i'm sorry. we're going to -- this is one of the basic rules which, of course, i've forgotten. we're going to put some oil in our pans and heat them while we
get the food ready. >> so these go in the oven now? >> yep. by the time we're ready, we're ready to cook because the pans will be hot. >> we cut eggplant and chicken? >> i'm going to cut this chicken in half because, of course, smaller pieces of things cook more quickly. that's a principle of fast cooking. >> i've sliced some eggplant. >> i've sliced some chicken. we've got sliced tomato. parmesan, bread crumbs. you can mix those together. i'll get our now hot pans out of the oven. >> fine. >> how are we doing? >> doing okay. so we've got our mixture. put that one here. do we do layers? >> we stack the chicken and tomato. you do not put the tomato on the eggplant yet. it takes tlorng cook. something like this. and then back in the oven. salt and pepper naturally. we can skip that.
>> right. >> back in the oven. and then five minutes later, let's say, it looks something like this. >> i'll grab yours. >> got that? >> yes. there you go. >> and now this is pretty much cooked and we put on our mixture of bread crumbs and cheese. >> right on top? >> right on top. and some fresh basil. >> okay. and then we pop that back in the oven? >> just until that browns. >> and this is what it looks like when it's done. how long, start to finish? >> 20, 25 minutes. and i'm not kidding -- excuse me. and it's fresh. the bread crumbs are crisp. the tomatoes are not saucy. they're beautiful, fresh tomatoes. you can do a cubano type sandwich with this. >> and the book is filled with all these fast recipes that are delicious. mark bittman, as always, you've

>> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist and tamron hall live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. welcome to "today" on a friday morning, october 3rd, 2014. i'm willie geist, along with natalie morales and tamron hall. our buddy, al, will be back from the big uso trip on monday. we can't wait to get him back. >> to see his routine and the big show. we're going to see that on tuesday. >> yes. >> good stuff. >> this is a huge morning here. >> yes. >> the queen of soul. >> amazing. >> can you feel -- >> she's sticking around. she's going to hang with us. >> i know. >> we're not worthy. >> we really aren't. >> we're not. >> it's incredible. >> she is going to talk to us, sing another song for us. i love the concept on this
album, by the way. songs you already love with her voice put to them. >> mixing them with some of her favorite songs. >> and her aretha flavor. we do have to -- i'm going to tell the story. she won't get mad at me. she hates it cold. aretha franklin hates the cold. >> not her thing. >> you cannot have cold air, nothing. >> got to keep the voice -- >> that's why her voice is so beautiful after all these years. finally, natalie and i are happy. >> it's tropical. >> we've been begging for the ac to be turned off. aretha franklin comes in, says turn off the air. she does a snap. >> done. >> it's done. feels like we're in jamaica. take your sleeves off, natalie. >> we're on vacation. >> thank you, miss franklin. >> we'll talk to aretha in a few minutes. we absolutely cannot wait for that. we start this morning with ebola. a freelance cameraman working for us at nbc news in liberia has become the latest american
to become affected with ebola. ashoka mukpo started with symptoms a day after he was hired. dr. nancy snyderman talks about how close she was working with the cameraman. >> once he became symptomatic, we only spent two hours ago. we were working in a work space when he told me he wasn't feeling well. he joined us 72 hours earlier as an independent journalist and had been in the hospital -- had been in the country two weeks prior to that. so my suspicion is that he was infected before we met him. and then he became symptomatic once we met him. we shared a work space. we shared vehicles. we shared equipment. but everyone here is hyper alert. we have not been in close proximity. no one shakes hands. there's no hugging. so, i do believe that our team, while we are being hyper vigilant, we are at very, very, very low risk.
>> you know, nancy was on the phone there for that interview because their camera equipment is actually being completely disinfected. so they have no use of that equipment. dr. nancy and her team having their temperatures monitored. they'll travel back to the u.s. privately, not on a commercial plane. they'll keep themselves together on a private plane and be under quarantine for 21 days. >> out of abundance of caution. although nancy pointing out they've not had any symptoms of ebola virus. >> that's right. authorities plan to prosecute thomas eric duncan, the liberia man diagnosed with ebola on dallas. he lied on a questionnaire he filled out before boarding a plane on his journey to texas. it asked if he had cared for any ebola patients or touched anyone who then died. he answered that question, no. >> when, in fact, he aided a pregnant woman and her family. >> yes. >> she died. her brother died. and he assisted them at some point in time. >> yeah. >> we now know that. >> that's right. so duncan, by the way, remains
in serious condition this morning at the hospital in dallas. >> i was surprised to learn, though, apparently there is no law here in the u.s. requiring people to report if they have had -- obviously, most people do it. it's sort of code of moral conduct. you expect if somebody asks you have you been sick, have you traveled to these countries with the whole foot and mouth disease in customs, they ask you. you're hoping it's the honor code that people are checking off that they legitimately are not come in contact with the virus or disease. >> i was thinking, though, yes, it's an honor code. but if you believe you're dying, as was this case -- i'm not saying he did the right thing by no stretch of the imagination. you ask yourself here he has been exposed, trying to save someone else's life and is asked at that moment to tell the truth. in the back of his mind perhaps, we don't know, thinking the people that have been treated in the united states have lived. 3,000 people have died in west africa. i mean, is it even an honor code or are you trying to survive? >> and if you're a parent with
children, you're going to want to get out of there as quickly as you can and get them to the right treatment. it's hard to know what you would do in that situation. you know, your heart goes out to his family, who, as well, have been suffering with this, knowing his condition is serious still. at least he has been upgraded somewhat. >> they're doing the best they can at those airports. it's pretty rudimentary to check the fever, ask somebody to check a box and you go on your way. we're going to switch gears. >> little bit. >> take quite a turn here. have you had the rite of passage that every parent has experienced at some point in their lives yet, willie? you know what i'm talking about, right? >> lice. >> have they visited you? it's going to happen this year. i see it happening this year. it happened to us this last spring. >> did you get it? >> my kids had it pretty bad and every day i came in like -- i never told our hair people. i'm like, my kids have -- i
never told laura. >> critters all over your head. >> i think because when you have product in your hair sometimes they say it sort of protects you from it. >> is that right? >> anyway the reason we bring this up, jennifer garner was on jimmy fallon, guest on "the tonight show." she told the cutest story and how ben begged her to go to a party after she put on that smelly, disgusting lice treatment. take a listen. >> your kids had lice? >> yes, they did. >> and it spreads all over the place. >> stars are just like us. >> did you get lice? >> we all got lice. >> no! >> it's make meeg itchy just to talk about it. it was years ago. i'm totally fine right now. they comb this oil -- it looks like you put crisco in your hair but you smell like sulphur and rosemary.
the first person i see is george clooney. >> of all people. >> i never met george clooney and i was kind of like, he's so handsome. oh, my god! so i see him and i walk up to him, chatting with him, trying to act like it's cool. eye chose, you know, whatever -- >> to grease my hair. >> i can see that he smells me, you know. >> no, this is awful! >> but he's trying to be polite. so, anyway, people keep asking why we weren't at george's wedding and we were both working, but i think he didn't want licey there. >> she's great. >> i have to say, the whole interview was really funny. at one point she impersonates her own husband when he says let's go to this party and she does it in her really cute way as every woman likes to impersonate their husband. >> she said i do it with love. i do it with love. >> worth watching if you haven't seen it. >> speaking of love, whoo, disney has a new wedding cake out. >> okay. >> so, they're taking wedding
cakes to another level. trust me on this one. the cake that disney has, by the way, they're using projection mapping, lighting images are projected on to a white wedding cake. anything can be projected on to the cake, your face. you could do a love story, a poem, anything you want. and you say, really, anything? wait until we tell you the price tag. because you should be able to get anything you want for this. the technology for the cake does exist outside of disney. as we understand it, it starts at -- guess. >> well, we know. >> i know. >> you know? $12,000. >> it's not just for the cake. it's the full disney wedding package. we don't know what that includes. i'm sure it's the whole experience. >> spoon and ice cream. when you start bringing in projectors. >> that's a big cake, though. >> cakes are expensive, wedding cakes, especially. and that's like ten tiers. >> the package goes to the cake. they are so expensive. >> didn't that mean like you ran out of time to decorate the
cake? it's just a white cake at the end of the day. >> it's a projector. you could put a projector and put up tinkerbell. magical. >> it's a long way to go. if you like it, good for you. how about this? >> oh, gosh. >> october is breast cancer month. >> yes. >> in honor of that, we're launching a charity effort called pink or swim. >> this is good. >> through next friday, october 10th, we'll have a dunk tank filled with pink water, teamed up with the av on foundation of women. which of the four of us "today's take" anchors you want to see dunked. >> we get water balloons for whatever reason. >> raise $10,000 by next friday, a week to do this, the anchor with the most votes gets dunked on live national television. all the money will go to the avon foundation. >> hands up, who here wants to get dunked? really wants to? >> are there people who want to get dunked ? >> i don't mind. >> i thought you were dunking us
already. >> everybody knows i'm always up for a good challenge. >> there you have it. >> we're done. >> i guarantee, al's going to win but you can vote for me, please. >> vote for natalie to be dunked. >> all yours. >> i think it's a good -- it's a great cause. i'm happy to get dunked. if it takes that -- >> and the other three guys, do we get to throw the balls at the dunk tank? >> let's see if you have a good arm. you should warm up. >> go right ahead. >> no, not right now. >> go to today.com and vote for one of us that you want to see dunked next month. >> you know you want in. >> no. >> feels like you really want this. >> natalie has petitioned -- >> no, no, no. i'm not petitioning. >> you just said i would love to do it. >> i was just saying i'm not going to say no. >> you're up for it. >> yeah. it's a great cause. >> we support the cause. >> she wants it. >> that's not the point. >> because tamron doesn't want to. i'm using reverse psychology. >> the princess bride. >> i have a video for you to see. everyone knows how long it takes
me to get my hair straight. don't do that to me. >> we know how cute it looks when it's curly. >> natalie, you're not helping. >> this is going to be a fun week. >> you're not off the hook. if willie does it, he should do it in a magic mike tank top. ladies, vote for willie. >> i think willie really want it is. >> you know you want to show those ab-eronies. >> you would create the biggest splash. >> that's an insult. >> that's a compliment. >> we have something else we want to tell you about. it's called facebook friday. take a look at this. if you've ever had an itch that you cannot reach -- >> what are we talking about here? >> one that doesn't require ointment. >> what? >> he said it. take a look at this bear. this is hilarious. it was posted to the washington department of fish and wildlife's facebook. it's already been viewed more than 2 million times, according to the department's spokesperson. >> that is cute. >> now we have a challenge for.
