>> you look fantastic and you smell good, too, which you at home might not know. >> she smells like cookies. >> that's really true. the fandom over "gilmore girls." the return. were you prepared for it? >> no. it is still very surprising. it is my honor to be in this show again and i just am so relieved that people largely seem to be pleased with the reboot as opposed to hideously >> that's right. the reaction's been terrific. it is four parts, kind of like a year. it's all four seasons. which is so exciting. we got a clip of your character chatting with her daughter, rory, when she moves back home. >> you remember to label my boxes because i know where nothing is. my boots, my coats, my underwear. >> you have no idea where your underwear is? >> could be at lane's. >> you've been without your underwear since you moved?
>> i'm looking for my lucky outfit. >> i told you, low-key obsessed with lorelei. lot of people have named their child rory over the years. >> the quick clip of the dialogue which is perfect because you've got a second book out today which is called collection of essays. in the show you talk like a mile a minute. >> that's what the show is known for. it is always something i loved about it. i'm sort of a fast talker myself. so the book is a collection of essays, including one about kind of what it was like to do the show the first time, then sort of a diary behind the scenes of the latest show. i just thought what an odd thing to get to do in a career. you know. >> did you keep a journal knowing that you would want to reveal things? >> the second time i did because
blur. there were so many episodes over so many years. when i tried to write about it i was like, the year where my hair looked weird? so i really kept a little more of a diary this time, also because it was such a special time and i was having such big moments all the time so i tried to keep track of them. >> which is kind of cool. not only did people respond to it but a lot of celebrities as well. reese witherspoon -- >> i just found this out. >> you are not on social media. >> i'm on it but el it wasn't hard to find all of these celebrities who had reaction to the show. >> wow. >> we've got the reese witherspoon with cheryl strade who wrote the book "wild." reese tweeted her love as well about this. >> my character goes on a big journey that has to do with "wild" and kind of separates the book and the movie which is a funny pop culture there.
what could be more hilarious? >> are you a camper? >> my boyfriend's very outdoorsy so i've learned. in fact, one of the essays in the book is called "before my rei card" talking about whether i was single and some of the changes that happened in being with an outdoorsy person. >> what's the number one thing that changed being with an outdoorsy person? >> i have fleeces now. an assortment of fleeces. i have a puffy vest. of shoes for specific kinds of hivg i hiking. it was encapsulated of having this. are rei card. >> it's outdoor stuff. >> i've been camping. >> you did the bear grylls thing! you did it on the highest level. >> you only time you would get
christian louboutin made a hiking boot. mae whitman your daughter from "parent hood" viewing the show. >> mae also has a small cameo in the show. basically if you were any of my loved ones i wanted you in the show and i put as many people as i possibly could. she never watched the show before and now has watched the whole thing. it's very gratifying. >> that's so cool. jason ritter, theth "parenthood" co-star, tweeting so funny, moving, and all-around wolf. >> aw. >> it's streaming on netflix. we're not going to say the four words that end the show which is kind of word because it is bingeing. you can watch the whole thing so you have to be careful about what you say. but it is kind of a cliffhanger. there will be any more? >> it is so funny because we spent all these years being asked if there was going to be a movie or if we were going to revisit the show. we thought, all right, we finally put that to rest and now
i think on one hand we feel very proud of what we did and like it answered a lot of questions. on the other hand, it was such a joy for us all to do it and people -- some people seemed to be asking for more, so we'll see. >> it is like probably when you have a baby, then people say when is the next baby? like what's the next thing? but that's a good thing. well, in tv case. "rolling stone" is out with the top album of the year. right? this is their l they've come out with the top 50 albums. we don't know what it is but now i know because it is in the teleprompter. top album of the year -- "lemonade." >> that makes sense. >> i guessed that this morning in our reading. yae. never one to rest on her laurels, beyonce is also out with christmas merchandise.

sh foccacia and hand-slice avocado. there's nothing "or something" about it. my sweethearts gone sayonara. this scarf all thats left to remem... what! she washed this like a month ago the long lasting scent of gain flings if you're thinking about getting lasik eye surgery, you need to consider first. plus, big news when it comes to what age women should stop their mammogram screenings. >> here with our "medical minute," innocenbc contributor natalie aczar. >> so here is the backdrop to this. there has never been a consensus among influential medical groups about when to start mammograms, how frequently they should be
stopped. all groups agree, however, that they are important and that they are life sampbving. the united states preventative services is task force many years ago made the recommendation to stop mammograms at the age ever 74 but a lot of important groups including the american cancer society recommends continuing them for, for example, if the longevity or life expectancy of a woman is greater than ten years. just as an example. to kind of figure out, solve it problem, give us a little more definitive data, a group looked at basically close to mammograms and covered about 3 1/2 million women to see whether or not there was a correlation between age and how well mammograms performed in terms of cancer detection. they basically found out that beyond age 75 up to age 90 there was still cancers that were detected and still utility and usefulness of doing. basically the answer is, if you have women in your lives -- mothers or grandmothers -- over the age of 74, they should
provider and see whether a mammogram is still right for them. >> on a yearly basis still? >> again, there is no recommendation but many groups including the american cancer society would say yearly, yes. >> the lasik surgery. researchers at food and drug administration found many people underwent the drug procedure experienced side effects like double images and glare. i am from the old school that lacers were used to kill people in james bond movies so i won't get one. what does this mean? >> basically, al, the story her time that the study here, the headline, is not whether or not lasik is effective or safe. the studies in fact over the last couple of decades have shown that it is. the headline here is that there has not been until now what's called a validated questionnaire that doctors can actually give to their patients to follow signs and symptoms following lasik surgery. what was great about this study was that in fact they show that the vast majority of people did not have a negative outcome.
experienced new symptoms when they had none to start but none of them impacted their lives. again the take-home is not that there is suddenly these new and concerning symptoms following lasik surgery, but rather, there is a validated questionnaire that all doctors and health care providers can administer to their patients to better follow up outcomes following lasik. it is great because it gives the providers that much more information about the procedure. >> good advice. you're not saying avoid lasik. >> oh, no, no. absolutely not. neither are the study authors. coming up, grab a cup of joe. wait until you see what's brewing in our "coffee talk." this is a first. we've never had "coffee talk" before. lauren, tamron and i answer your questions and nothing it off-limits. >> ? ? i found a better deal on prescriptions. we found lower co-pays... ...and a free wellness visit. new plan...same doctor. i'm happy. it's medicare open enrollment.

who perform selfless acts every day. today's story comes to us from new jersey where 14-year-old brothers jake and max klein have gone the extra mile to help spread the spirit of joy and giving. >> reporter: it is a huge turnout today at this high school in new jersey as many gather to donate canned foods, turkeys and other items to help the center for hope and safety, a women's shelter foret the holidays. today's drive has been an overlping success raising enough with meals for the holidays. and that success can be attributed to the website ki kidsthatdogood.com. jake and max klein founded the website and have been instrumental in organizing communities to give every since this were a very young age. >> when they were 4 years old we did letters to santa and the boys took all the money out of their piggy banks and we went
our own community might not be able to afford a praenesent. we went to target, bought all the gifts, then went to the charity who distributed it. >> that was really moving and touching just that somebody needs it more than i do. when they were 6 or 7 they decided that they wanted to have their birthdays become charitable donations and they picked the charity and every year we would send out the birthday invitation that said in lieu of gifts with be this >> reporter: over the years such birthday philanthropy included bulletproof vests for their local police department, laptops for the fire department, and cookies for kids cancer which
then one kitchen denied them because of their age. >> turning us down for our age was like crushing our dreams. that was the start of our website right there. >> the boys decided they wanted to put together a website for kids to find many ways to be charitable. >> reporter: max and jake created kidsthatdogood.com. >> it launched about three months ago. it is exceeding our expectations right now. >> every month we pick a charity to support and this month the boys came to me with the idea supporting the center for hope and safety, which is a refuge center for women and children affected by domestic violence. >> they were like, mom, we have to do something for these families. like it is just not acceptable. that was it. >> four days ago we posted on our website that we wanted everyone to donate to the food drive. and the turnout was absolutely overwhelming. there's so many donations that came in today. it's really amazing what two kids can do.
raised. we felt that this was a big moment for us and we also felt that we helped the center very much. >> they went above and beyond, galvanized community support, inspiring so many children and families to give. >> reporter: in addition to today's drive, kids that do good has also been involved with initiatives the a the american cancer society, susan g. komen, and local small to support. >> reporter: it is through brothers max and jake that we can truly see the spirit of sharing kindness. >> i think they really embody the idea of share kindness. hopefully it is contagious and they seem to get a smile on everyone's face when they are doing it. >> i feel that share kindness means to help others and to give back to your community and help people that are less fortunate. >> every day we want to share kindness with others by making a
