8:17 am
built up anger towards her. she did towards me, too. it was a virus cycle. it was difficult to have people dissect and analyze your relationship thinking they know you from a tv show. >> when you are watching your sister struggle. so painfully, do you regret signing on to let cameras follow your every move? >> absolutely there are those moments. like the limo, those moments. a lot of season two was difficult also. absolutely. >> the one thing i think a lot of viewers were asking. people wondered if there was a substance abuse problem. we were watching it happen as you were living it. what was the final straw that led your sister to get help? >> think she really did realize, you know, being prompted by our family, to go and get help. she, i have to give her credit for making that decision on her
8:18 am
own. i think it was just an accumulation of things. >> no one, big, house wives intervention? >> no. nothing to do with that. our family and sitting down and she really felt it was time to go. i'm very happy and proud she made the decision. >> how is kim today? >> she's great. really good. you know, told her, i don't know if you want to watch the show all the time. i don't want her to look back and beat herself up. i want her to stay positive and move forward. >> do you think watching the show might have led to her getting help? going wow, that t is me. i hit bottom. >> actually, no. she's not into watching the show, or the tabloids or internet. >> that's a good thing for her. next week is the big start of the reunion. what can you tell us? was it -- >> oh, my gosh.

8:21 am
who is that with madonna. >> you're going to know. her name is andrea riseborough. what does madonna have to say about the movie star? what does the star have to say about madonna? perhaps she's best known as the woman on madonna's arm these days. sharing any number of red carpets with the material girl. don't know who she is? wait a few months. you will. andrea riseborough has an astounding five films coming out this year with hollywood hotties like clive owen, jason bateman. and she's landed a new role starring opposite tom cruise. tom cruise, that's pretty exciting. >> it's very exciting. i'm truly just -- feverish about it. >> reporter: she was madonna's date to the golden globe this is
8:22 am
past sunday. what is it like to go out in a circumstance like that with her? >> really, it's a trip. >> reporter: the one cast member mentioned by name when madonna won the award for best song. >> andrea riseborough who is sitting right in front of me, because truly, her performance in my film is a masterpiece. >> reporter: what were you feeling, thinking in that moment? >> i felt very lucky. it was so -- so -- so very kind of her. >> reporter: the pastor piece of her performance is in madonna's new movie, "w.e." she plays wallis simpson, the duchess of windsor. it's funny to see someone playing a character and then see them in life. every once in awhile, you have an expression that i say, ah, the duchess. >> it took me all of 15 or 20
8:23 am
minutes to do that. she's very likable. >> reporter: when i talked to madonna about the movie, we met in the sweet at the waldorf astoria. >> their friends would lend art work to make them feel at home. i would never lend my picasso to anybody. >> do you have one? >> yes, should i not have said that? >> reporter: madonna, tell me about the first time you met her? she's intimidating at times i think. >> she was gentle and graceful. and then talked about the project with tenacity. i was utterly taken with her. from that moment, we spent every day together for the next seven months. >> reporter: she wore

meticulously researched outfits. the film picked up a nomination for best costume design. >> we were so fortunate. one seamstress got on the floor at my feet and cried when the pattern came together. it's not my birthday. >> reporter: cartier made a replica for the movie. madonna said when she asked to keep it -- they said no. >> they said we consider it a work of art. as a consolation prize, they made this brace let for me and asked me what stones i wanted this to be made of. i asked for the by the stones of all my children. >> reporter: though the woman playing wallis simpson didn't get any jewels, she got a special gift of her own. >> i had a gift i was given by my director. >> reporter: will you tell us
8:25 am
what it was? >> it's a very beautiful signed picture of wall lis and edward, it's very special to me. >> reporter: i think it would be safe to say that your level of celebrity is about to go into the next phase of whatever that is. do you feel ready? >> i don't know. i didn't set out to be famous. i set out to be successful. i realize now that what i want to be is happy. and fortunately, i am. >> andrea riseborough. if you want to know how close they have become, they got dressed together to go to the golden globes. i said, what did you talk about? she said we talked about hemingway all the way down the red carpet. >> is she ready for this? five major films coming out. >> it's a lot. i think the celebrity part takes

rainstretching into chestertown right now also reaching rock hall and churchill and heading towards galena. heavy downpours across the area and then we see another round of rain stretching back down to the south. that's working its way in through the morning as wept and things will get much better going into the afternoon. so that's what we are waiting for a big look at the satellite and radar, we are waiting for this moisture down south to work its way in through here. across the eastern shore andas we go through the remainder of the morning you saw where the clearing line is not too far away and that's what we are waiting for the warm front to psh through and temperatures warming up. but we will have that cold front move through as we go through the afternoon. and that's going to drop the temperatures down as we go throughout the day. but in the meantime, we are dealing with the temperatures in the mid to upper 50s in some spots and even got to the 60s for today. future trend picking up on what's going ongoing into motion we will get the last batch of rain out of here. and i see we should be mainly dry going into the 2:00 hour
8:58 am
and then we will see a little bit of sunshine a few peeks of sunshine and the real sunshine and clearing won't come until we go later into the evening and into tomorrow. now as we reach saturday, well, things will be sunny but then we will have a clipper system clip us but i think it's going to be bringing us mostly cloud cover. no type snow with that. 58 degrees early this morning. and we will get windy going throughout the day. and 32 clearing skies and we will take that and then by tomorrow, the temperature coming in right around 52 degrees and it will become breezy throughout the day. 7-day forecast gets cooler heading into monday. and then as we head into the first day of february, 56 degrees.
