9:13 am
"dawson's creek." one of the stars of "dawson's creek." in a race, it's about getting to the finish line. one of the stars of "dawson's creek." in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling.
9:14 am
if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today. and then there's juicy chicken. the difference is hellmann's. hellmann's is the secret to making parmesan crusted chicken so juicy and so delicious. you can make dinner disappear. hellmann's. bring out the best.
9:15 am
you can make dinner disappear. crest gaand the other, a crestwhitening toothpaste.. here's what they thought. i can't tell if the paste whitened. well the whitestrips worked. yeah. the paste didn't do that. crest whitestrips work below the enamel surface, to whiten 25x better than a leading whitening toothpaste. crest whitestrips. the way to whiten. yoplait light is now better than ever. it still melts in your mouth. with 90 calories. and is now aspartame free. yoplait light. it is so good; it's better than ever.

let's try to have a good day today. >> it's a real pick-me-up that show. first thing on a monday morning. >> first feel-bad show of the year. >> it's going to start some conversations. >> i think it is. and that's not representative to the total show. that relationship is in the process of falling apart, but there's another -- the affair, obviously, is happening. that character is falling in love on the other side. so there's a little bit of that good stuff in there as well. >> you get two perspectives, almost as if you're playing two characters? >> i'm actually not one of the perspectives. it's from her side and then the man she's having the affair with, from his side as well. each episode is broken into those two pieces. you'll hear his story and his version of the same story and they don't match up. >> it's funny. natalie pointed tout me there's a lot of nudity in the show. i didn't even notice when i was watching. >> dark natalie. >> yeah. well, yeah. >> more reason to watch.

>> for fraudulent mortgage and construction loans totalling $5 million, you guys. >> they did plead guilty. teresa will serve her 15 months first and then her husband joe -- her husband joe will go in so someone is watching the children. >> here's the thing about it. obviously they pleaded guilty, so they knew they had done wrong, didn't want to get caught, they got caught. she is a very likable lady when she's been around us. we have no problem with that. i'm just surprised that the judge didn't give -- make joe serve his sentence first. her children are -- i'm not sure what age they are, 12, 13, they're in that area. if he's got to serve four years or so, then that gets them off to college and keeps their mother at home with them. and then she -- i don't know. it seems strange that she would serve first and how he's going to make a living while she's in prison. >> i see another bravo for -- >> i wonder if cameras will be on the men. anyway, they did speak to andy
10:08 am
