tv   Good Day New York  FOX  April 5, 2016 9:00am-10:00am EDT

9:00 am
>> from fox 5 news, it's time for more good day new york. >> ah, what a day! the sun is shining, 9:00 in the morning, but it is brisk out there this morning. you feel it the minute you step outside your door. >> so give me the night. >> before the night we need to enjoy the day. today's going to be a big day at yankee stadium. it's homeowner part deux. yesterday, as you know, we were supposed to have our home opener here, but the rain was constant. hats9 off to the yankees for calling the game off early so people didn't schlepp out there only to find out that the game was actually put off until tomorrow. >> at first i thought it was weird. you know, we're accustomed to waiting it out for an hour and a half while it rains x the umpires, they have a conversation, and then maybe they call the game.
9:01 am
they must have had really good radar. we said showers, but it was a constant rain. it did not let up all afternoon. >> all right. a couple of things, number one, they're playing the astros of houston, otherwise known as the houston astros -- >> and -- >> who remembers their old, tiny uniform from the '70s? i thought this was the coolest as a kid. look at that color. they don't wear anything like this anymore. >> for good reason. look at the colors on that. >> it was of its era. what else? houston astros, national league team. i always notice that, it doesn't seem right on some level. you had to wait til the world series for that to happen in the old days. hey, remember when we were at yankee stadium, and we had so much fun. we ran all over the mace. >> we were there many times, one day for good day at the game, another time we played a charity event there. >> and we interviewed this gentleman, and then they let us run the ballfield for some reason. >> i don't think they let you, i think you took it upon yourself
9:02 am
>> rosanna, i'm pretty sure, look, it was a boyhood dream. i don't actually call this running the ballfield. >> no. [laughter] but you did run the bases, which was pretty fun. >> it was kind of wild. we anchored the show from the dugout in yankee stadium, and we had quests come. we -- guests come. we interviewed cheech and chong, they were here in the studio, and we were up there. it was bizarre and fun. >> by the way, home openers are not always beautiful, sunny, warm days. that day looked rainy and cold. we had scarves on and gloves. >> who's that? this is a yankee fashion show, it looks like. [laughter] all right. so anything else we should know about? >> we're just going to wish the yankees good luck today, and if you're planning on getting to the stadium, give yourself plenty of time. i believe doors open at 11:00 this morning. >> and talk to one of those ushers, tell them greg kelly sent you, and you want to see rosanna scotto serve food in
9:03 am
now, there's a remote chance that's not going to work, but there is a chance. >> there are times i can't even get you in legends, and they all love you there, by the way. they have their rules and regulations. so -- >> i just show up like i own the place. you know what? if you wear a suit, you can walk in almost anywhere, you know what i mean? pretend you know what you're doing can. feel like you're supposed to be there even when you're not. anyway, seriously, rosanna will be at legends today with her family. >> with my family. we're cooking in the legends area. and if not, hopefully we'll see you when we're walking around the stadium, which is always fun. >> in the meantime, mikey, it's cold out. >> it is cold outside. the weather doesn't always cooperate on opening day, but at least today you've got your sunshine back. anyhow, what we expect at the first pitch, sunny skies, temps coming into the upper 30s, right around 37-39 degrees, but it's also windy at the same time. winds coming in from the north at around 10-20 miles an hour.
9:04 am
for the brisk weather. not only is it cold today, right now it looks like that's going to happen again tonight. we have another freeze warning in effect for the purple-shaded counties including all five boroughs, all of long island, coastal connecticut and central sections of new jersey. that's what we have with the freeze warning going up once again as our lows drop down into the teens and twenties. things are quieter now on the radar, we did have a few snowflakes flying over the five boroughs parts of long island for a short period of time, not a big deal at all, but that cold air, that makes a big difference. 27 degrees, central park, 30 in newark and 26 in sussex, but also the wind coming in from the north and northeast at around 7 to as much as 24 miles per hour makes it feel a lot colder than it actually is. wind chill factors down into the teens this morning. but as we head into the afternoon, more and more sunshine will be coming back to us here as the clouds continue to head offshore and the cold
9:05 am
we'll have high pressure trying to build in on the back side, but it's still that colder canadian air that we have for us, and it's here for a while. take a look at the future cast, not much you can see here as our skies clear out as the cold front heads out into the atlantic waters. however, that cold air is going to give way to more clouds from wednesday into thursday, and by thursday, yeah, looks like area. they're going to hang out for the majority of that day, and then even early friday you've got some showers left over for, but then we dry out and cool down as we head into the weekend. high temp today getting to about 40, tonight we drop down to the 20s again. little warmer wednesday with a high of 58, then 59 on thursday. dry and cooler as we head toward the weekend. greg and rosanna, over to you. >> okay. thank you very much. vanessa williams, the one and only. achieved international
9:06 am
america crown, after that it was music, movies and most recently television, ugly betty. rosanna and i agree, by the way, this hit from '92, i think -- >> one of our favorite songs. >> let's enjoy it for a moment. you'd tell me this was love -- it's not the way i hoped or how i planned, but somehow it's enough. >> i could listen to it -- >> it's so hopeful, you know? [laughter] you can find that person out there. anyway, vanessa's going strong. she's got a new clothing line, she's got a tv series coming up, and she's out there trying to help women gain some job skills when they go on interviews so they don't blow the job interview which is everything. hello, nice to have you. >> good morning. thank you. >> what have you been doing these days? like, what did you do before -- yesterday? >> yesterday, i flew in from
9:07 am
i'm recently married, so my new nephew was starring in west side story, so we went to see him in aurora, illinois. >> how's married life going? >> it's great. yes, third time's a charm. >> you can see -- did you sing that song at your wedding? >> no, i sang another song. you know the song bill -- >> marry me, bill? >> bill from showboat. i did a parody of that, because my husband's name is jim, jim, and i talked about how he's a buffalo guy -- [laughter] >> oh, i like this guy. bill is about an ordinary guy, and he's my ordinary guy, but he's extraordinary -- >> and he's marrying vanessa williams. [laughter] what does he do for a living? just curious. >> he was in real estate and finance, so right now he's moved into my house, and he's going to be looking for a new situation down here. because he's from buffalo. >> and you're still around in our area. >> yeah, westchester, yeah, yeah. >> and the kids? >> the kids -- my oldest will be
9:08 am
>> the kids. >> crazy. [laughter] but they're all doing great. my middle daughter is in a band called lion babe, and she's on my same record company i was with 25 years ago, which is crazy. and she's opening for disclosure in mexico, like, next week. she's amazing. >> wow. you're spectacular. vanessa williams, we've got a couple of things to talk about, but first, i want to cover this. you are involved in this new project to make people step up and realize that a phone interview is still a real job interview. a lot of people blow it off because, well, it's just on the phone. >> right. well, it's the first step to getting to -- right? >> yeah, exactly. and this is my second year working with success is calling, it's a joint venture with track phone and dress for success which we all know how wonderful that program is for women that have been kind of down and out, trying to get them back in the work field, and they give gently-used clothes to women to start interviewing.
9:09 am
allowing women to get skills, know how to speak articulately. i mean, we're lucky, we have parents that were there to give us example, but a lot of people don't have that. >> so if somebody's doing an interview over the phone, what's -- give them a good tip that -- >> have energy, for sure. and try to speak as clearly as possible. be engaged and know a lot about yourself so you can be able to answer questions, because they're going to want to know, h.r. people want to know who you are and what you can bring to the table. >> and maybe a few things about the company, that's always use withful. but again, i think it's common place that people don't realize that the phone interview is a real interview. >> absolutely. >> it's not a preliminary name, rank and serial number. >> you will be eliminated very quickly if you don't nail it. >> my son recently had a skype interview. you really have to stay focused on those things, put away your phone or whatever and focus -- do in and have confidence. and, again, a lot of women who are in the program don't have confidence, so this is an opportunity for them to get the
9:10 am
300 women got successful jobs last year from this program, we're hoping for 600 this year. it's been a phenomenal program. >> how can they get involved? >> ts success is calling.com, or they can go to walmart, buy a track phone, and 20% goes to the program. >> very nice. >> yeah. >> now, i know you're also working on making a tv show out of a book that star jones -- >> yeah. >> sisters. [laughter] >> it's loosely about her job at "the view," yes -- >> it is? >> yes, yes. and i play maxine robinson who is running the show, produces and stars, aka, barbara walters. >> so you're the barbara walters? >> yes. >> is that satan? by the way, barbara's a great person. >> it has nothing to do with barbara. in the book chris rock sits down in one of the scene, and he says i feel like i'm in the middle of satan's sisters here, because he was afraid of the interview, and that's where the title came from.
9:11 am
they might rebrand it because it sounds like -- it's not about barbara walters. >> there's no back stabbing? >> well, i didn't want say -- [laughter] >> gotta be a little red meat. >> we start shooting in august -- >> is it going to be shot here in new york? >> i wish. atlanta. we're going to pretend it's new york, but it's atlanta. and it's on vh-1. >> did you grow up? >> in westchester. >> and in high school you wanted to be what? >> i wanted to be on broadway, and i got -- you know, growing up in westchester, you take the train in to see whatever the great show is, and for a musical theater artist, it's -- your audition's only a train ride away. so that was a tangible goal for me. i knew that if i nailed it, i could take the train, be prepared and get into a broadway show. i didn't realize that everything else, recording and movies and television shows, that was all stuff that i never dreamed about. broadway was my tangible goal.
9:12 am
helped you expand? we had ryan seacrest here one day, and i said what was your strategy? he said my strategy was i said yes to everything. >> uh-huh, uh-huh. >> and i was just wondering -- >> well, my parents were both music teachers, educators be prepared, be consistent, work ethic. so when i said i wanted to be a musical theater major are, they said, okay, you're going to apply to colleges that have musical theater majors. i went to syracuse, so i got trained. it was always have a plan and be prepared. so when you get that opportunity, you'll be able to nail it. >> you're ready. >> uh-huh. >> any ideas, would you like to come back to broadway at some point? >> oh, i would love to, you know? i've been so lucky to do so many different things. i sing on the weekends, i do shows, i've got a show in miami on friday -- >> what? this friday? >> yeah, yeah. and another on saturday. i try to combine it all, but broadway is something that i'd always love to jump back into. >> it's eight days, eight shows a week. >> but i love it.

[laughter] what about the college scene? is it difficult the third time around, or are you more laid back about -- >> well, i've done it, yeah, three have already gone, she's the fourth. well, i'm a mother, so i want her to have the total package, and i'm always kind of on her, and she -- it's intimidating for these kids. i mean, when we applied to college, i think i applied to five school, got into them all. i didn't apply to ten schools. >> i know. >> have the pressure of, like, the ivy league -- >> did you go? >> i went to syracuse. >> good, solid school upstate. >> that's right. >> well, vanessa, one other thing going on. you have got some clothes? >> on e-vine live which is a shopping network, and we did our

9:24 am
>> it's the kind of thing that you can't even -- i still don't even understand after spending over a year thinking about this, is that that kind of money and that kind of -- you see it in new york, you're around it all the time, but you still can't really imagine what the reality of that, that level is. it doesn't really make sense. and even sitting and talking to people, meeting people, it's still sort of bewildering me. >> actors at your level are usually making more money than who they're playing on tv. not in this case. >> no. [laughter] but if you had a talk with showtime and they want to give me a raise, totally fine with me. >> would you put your money in the stock market? is your money -- >> if i could understand it, it would be a great thing to do. >> so you're not playing -- >> well, not really, no. >> but you're not a financial adviser -- >> no, but if i could talk to your brother, that would be really great. >> for the record, it's not damien lewis' red hair.

[laughter] wall street, you can be on wall street without being on wall street these days. >> that's true. >> arianna huffington, media superwoman and political dynamo. the huffington post, everybody's heard of it, everybody's read it, it's been a major influencer of our process, of our culture, and i think it's made her a lot of money. nothing wrong with that. >> she knows what it's like to be successful running on empty, by the way. >> she knows what it's like to be very, very busy, but somehow this woman finds enough time to get enough rest, and if she can do it, we should be able to do the same thing. the name of the book is -- >> the sleep revolution: transforming your life one night at a time. arianna huffington, mice to have you book -- nice to have you back on good day. >> thank you so much. good to be with you. >> it happened because you collapsed. >> exactly. i clamsed from sleep -- collapsed from sleep deprivation and exhaustion in 2007, and that's what started me on this
9:39 am
new science about sleep that makes it very clear that sleep is not negotiable, you know? we think the that we are busy, we have so much we are trying to manage, we can just cut down on sleep. well, we can't if we want to be productive, healthy and happy. >> donald trump gets four hours of sleep a night -- >> well, look at the results. >> yeah, he's number one mt. polls. >> yeah. but the momentum is going down, he's making statements like women who have abortions should be punished thats has to be to be retracted, he displays the symptoms -- >> you think that's all because of his not getting enough rest? >> there's definitely a question between being exhausted and saying stupid things, things you have to retract. >> that happens to all of us. >> arianna, you didn't like him before he said some of these things. you put him on the entertainment pages of hupf post, right?
9:40 am
that we should ban 1,600,000,000 muslims which is a clear and present danger for this country. there was a great piece by gabrielle sherman -- >> we heard that. >> he's completely exhausted. it's not just donald trump. rubio, remember his performance in the debate when he sounded like -- exhausted. >> jeb bush, when they were talking about low energy, it had to be because he was so tired. >> yeah. we can see for ourselves. >> yeah. you can see it with hillary and bernie sanders maybe. all right. so what happened in 2007? let's go back to that. >> well, 2007, i was two years into building the huffington post, i had two daughters, one of whom was doing the round of colleges, you know, to decide which college to apply to. >> oh, yeah. >> you know that? >> oh, it's a horrible process. >> so i had put my blackberry away to be fully with her. and then coming to the hotel room and working at night. and as a result, i got back to
9:41 am
i collapsed, broke my cheekbone on the way down. and that was the beginning of reevaluating not just my way of living, but the way of living of millions of people who are all burned out. i mean, look at the casualties. last year we had executive after executive collapsing on the treadmill either dying or getting a heart attack. because we've convinced people that we all need to exercise and to eat healthy, whether we do it or not, but the third leg of the stool is sleep. even if you just want to lose weight -- >> right. alison sweeney just talked about that. >> it's more important to sleep enough than to exercise. >> well, you know, interesting. in the book you talk about a chapter, but i'm still tired, perception versus reality. sometimes while we're fretting about not getting enough sleep we're really getting more than we realize, and you talk about researchers from chicago, missouri and stanford universities found we think how
9:42 am
match up to how we actually sleep at night. >> well, that's why you can have something that measures how you sleep. i'm wearing a jawbone that measures my sleep and measures how deep my sleep is. but the key is if you wake up in the middle of the night not to fret about it, because it's the stress that stops us from going back to sleep. and i have a whole section that gives you tips and techniques of what to do to naturally fall back to sleep. >> here's a tip, don't look at the clock. do you agree with that? >> absolutely. >> now, we take this very seriously, arianna. we went to the sleep lab at nyu. check this out. rosanna and i, they wired us up, and we went to sleep in the laboratory for real, and they monitored us. >> yeah. we wanted to see if we had sleep apnea or something, because on this schedule we always find ourselves very tired, you know? >> so they recommend, by the way, 7-8 hours of sleep. is that what you recommendsome. >> well, all scientists recommend 7-9.
9:43 am
anywhere underneath you're in danger, you're in danger of impacting your health, you know? diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, alzheimer's are all connected with sleep deprivation. >> you know, i feel like at point of our lives we can say, okay, we've got to take care of ourselves, we've got to exercise, watch what we eat, but when you're young, you're in your 20s, i mean, you basically, you know, have to work til you drop. >> but this is a complete illusion. because the truth is that's when you make mistakes. everybody knows that. bill clinton famously said i made the most important mistakes in my life when i was tired. that's why we are starting today at college outreach to a hundred colleges to help millennials understand that, in fact, if they prioritize sleep, they're going to be better in terms of grades and in terms of their
9:44 am
these fabulous years instead of what is happening now which is mental health problems increasing in colleges -- >> right. >> and at the heart, the foundation of that is sleep deprivation. >> it makes sense to me. we're all watching all those tv shows nonstop -- >> him and the tv shows. >> there are too many to watch. arianna, how did you get your start? when did you go political? i know you've been a writer for a long time. >> yes, this is my 15th book. and, of course, as you can hear from my accent, i was not born here, i was born in greece. and through the mother who revered sleep, so i started the right way, but then when i moved to the states after i graduated from cambridge in england, i got caught up in this whole culture of celebrating being busy, right? we wear it like a badge of honor. we use terms like i'm slammed to indicate how important we are. >> okay, interesting. >> uh-huh. >> and we congratulate employees
9:45 am
>> and don't forget we all walk around with our cell phones, arianna. there's no cutting it off. >> that is key. that is really at the heart of our addiction. we are all slightly addicted, right? >> uh-huh. >> and that's why of all the tips and techniques in the book about how to get a good night's sleep, the most important one is to pick a time at least 30 minutes before you're going to turn off the lights. but if you want to start with five minutes, start with something. when you turn off all your diseases and gently escort them out of your bedroom. [laughter] >> last thing. what will you do if donald trump becomes president. >> what am i going to do? continue covering him. we are a journalistic operation -- >> will you take him off the entertainment pages? >> he has not been since he made that very un-american proposal. >> maybe he was tired. >> he has been tired for a long time. [laughter] >> anyway, arianna huffington, always great to see you here.

>> rosanna, as you know, i am passionate about bread. >> i do love bread. bread! >> oh, come on, that's old school. >> people who know and love bread sneeze at this stuff. i don't know, maybe they have a point. we're going to do something with some really quality bread with adam. he's got a very special place called, i think, the bread lab. >> >> brooklyn bread lab. welcome. >> thank you very much. >> what's behind this very scientific name, brooklyn bread lab? >> this is actually super old school, even more old school. so what we do is kind of take all these old grains and then make flour and make bread. >> you're opening this up to the people, they can come and learn how to do it? >> friday, saturday, sunday in bushwick. >> that's awesome. can you also buy it already made? >> it's all made.
9:50 am
>> this is kind of special for you guys. but we do do classes. >> for all the bread i've eaten, i have absolutely no idea how to make it, what it is. i know it involves yeast. >> i think it gets people nervous, because when there's yeast involved, that means it needs to rise, so that means you need to know the steps. >> yeah. it goes from being whole grain like this here into flour from milling in a stone mill, and then we mix dough -- >> this stuff right here, what's this? >> this is a grain grown in new york. >> get your freaka on, greg. >> exactly. laugh. >> that's the flour after it gets milled. >> how is it like you're not 3,000 pounds? >> so this stuff is just packed full of nutrients. it's kind of the whole idea that when it's fresh, it's good for you. >> do you put butter on it? >> butter and olive oil, sometimes at the same time. >> what about peanut butter and jelly? you can do whatever you want with the bread.
9:51 am
you guys better roll your sleeves up. we're going to shape it a little bit, if you want. >> i didn't wash my hands. >> that's fine. >> you didn't? >> this has been rising for 12 hours. we took the same wheat there, milled it and mixed it with some water -- >> is this one low right there? >> that's one loaf. >> how did you get into the business? >> my family's background is italian-american, and we just had to have bread and pastas, and that's kind of where we went. i'm going to show you one of these rows, you have to fold it and get it into a basket sort of like this which is already shaped. >> do you put it in a mold or something like that? >> exactly, that's it. >> right in there. >> right in that basket, and that gets baked in about a few hours. it rises again, a second rise. so when you move it around, you kind of get to move all the kind of stuff that's going on throughout those times that it's rise, and you get a little second rise from it. and this is.
9:52 am
>> oh, yeah. of that's where the caramelization and color comes from. >> have they invented a carb-free bread yet? >> i hope not. >> do you do gluten-free? >> absolutely not. >> why not? >> because we're a gluten-promoting people. [laughter] >> and i heard you're opening up a restaurant in the williamsburg hotel? >> yeah. it's going to have the bread and pastas and pastry -- >> pizza? >> cut us another loaf if you could there, adam. >> do you want to shape this one? >> no. i'm going to watch you. you're too good at that, i don't want to mess it up. i really am afraid of making bread. >> if the good people from wonder came to you, man, there's a billion dollars, we want to get behind you, would you sit down and have a meeting? >> i would say absolutely, we'd just mill everything fresh. >> no factory. >> exactly. >> there's no processed anything in this, right? >> there is a process, but it's very, you know, natural one that's very healthy for you and a process like i was saying just
9:53 am
that's really it. >> so the brooklyn bread lab is where in brooklyn? >> in bushwick or like east williamsburg, 201 morris street. >> and when are you opening in the williamsburg hotel? >> this summer. >> how much for a loaf of bread, by the way? >> these go for about seven. >> $7? >> yep. >> do you have a slicer? >> we use a knife. we're super old school. i'm the slicer. >> wow. >> you want to be defined tradition with the slicer, would you, rosanna? old school slicers exist. >> i like it because it's perfect, but there's something also -- >> this is a pretty nice one. >> yeah, you did that. those are nice hunks. >> what's the web site? >> it's brooklynbreadlab.com. >> adam, thank you very much. >> pleasure. >> nice to see you. >>'s the butter? >> i've got some olive oil. >> oh, even why do so many businesses
