tv Today NBC June 21, 2013 7:00am-11:01am PDT
>> we'll be back at 11:00 a.m. for our midday newscast. we'll see you then. good morning. terrifying near miss. two passenger planes come within 200 feet of each other over new york city. this morning, the nervous moments in the cockpit and >> traffic, 12:00. >> and the new concerns being what's behind the big losses and should investors brace for even more volatility? and paula deen under fire after revealing in sworn testimony she used racial slurs. she was scheduled to do an interview with us this morning live in our studio but we just found out she is a no show friday is here to go out and
from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> good morning. i'm savannah guthrie along side al roker and tamryn hall. it's kind of an unusual morning around here. >> it is. we arranged to do an interview with paula deen. the discussions were going on throughout the day yesterday. i spoke to her late afternoon on the phone yesterday and we talked about the fact it would be an open and candid discussion. no holds barred. all questions within the bounds of what we would talk about and she flew to new york. arrived here last night and we started to hear she was exhausted and this morning, although we have not spoken to her, she has not called us, her publicity people have told us she is exhausted and will not be
showing up, so that's where we stand right now. >> this is in the wake of course of some revelations that she used racial colors in the past, and she agreed to come on and agreed to talk about that but we will not be seeing paula deen this morning. >> apparently not. meantime, the dangerously close call is a focus of an investigation by the federal aviation administration. >> how did two planes loaded with passengers get so close to each other. think about it. 200 feet is about the distance of two basketball courts. it's like from the corner of our studio here just across the street there. it's incredibly close for two planes traveling at a great deal of speed. >> let's get to tom costello. he covers aviation for us. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this happened in the busiest air space. they were at different altitudes but came as close as.4 of a mile horizontal and 200 feet vertical. they were headed in different directions but came very close to each other.
>> a close call in the skies over new york city as a delta boeing 747 clear to land at kennedy airport missed an approach and for a short time ended up flying in the same direction as a shuttle american 170 regional jet leaving the runway. the planes came within 200 feet of each other in the air before both landing safely. in an audio transmission from the control tower, you can hear air traffic controllers warning one of the pilots. >> 172 heavy, are you turning? >> yes, sir, we're almost at 040 now. >> delta, 172, traffic 12:00. 1400 feet, 1600 feet. >> okay we got him on the fish finder here. >> incident took place last week. it's not clear why the delta pilot made the decision not to land at kennedy, but a standard procedure called a missed approach is regulated by specific procedures for pilots and controllers. the faa is releasing a statement saying the two aircraft were turning away from each other at
the point where they lost the required separation. >> reporter: delta airlines is cooperating with the investigation, and sprieparatel- this is big news for anybody that flies. the faa tells nbc news this morning that it's likely to relax some of the ban on using personal electronic devices at low altitudes. currently the faa requires passengers to keep their electronic devices shut off below 10,000 feet and an advisory panel is looking into whether it's time to revise that rule and allow people to use their electronic devices. the panel has until september to do it's work but we're told the faa will likely go along for allowing e-readers but probably not cell phones. at least not yet. guys, back to you. tom costello. thank you very much. a lot of nervous investors are keeping a close eye on wall street this morning. an eighth straight day of triple digit activity. the dow, s&p, nasdaq all down 2%.
jim cramer is host of "mad money." good to see you. biggest two-day percentage drop since november of 2011. thursday's losses knocked out all the gains for may and june. you look calm as a cucumber. why? >> you tend to have this level of volatility when those turn. it's nothing worth panicking over. those that are selling aggressively are going to regret it. >> it's frustrating because there seems to be a disconnect. ben bernanke speaks out on wednesday and says the fed is go ease up on buying bonds. the reason is because the economy is getting strong enough to stand on it's own. if the economy is better, why would the market tank like this? >> people don't ever want to think, you know what, i can do better in bonds than stocks. a lot of people are hiding in stocks. good dividends, good yield. the bond market is safer so they're selling stocks to buy bonds and people who are in
bonds are freaking out too because they think the fed is no longer going to support them. there's uncertainly everywhere. >> the bigger picture here, it's about interest rates. historically low for a long time and now interest rates are going to go up. do you think right now, if your opinion, is the economy strong enough right now to with stand the concept of money getting more expensive. >> yes. yes, it is. doesn't seem like it because we don't have the employment growth we want but at the same time we have a lot of industries doing really strong. i wish our foreign trading partners -- i wish china was doing better, and europe was doing better. we're the strongest country in the world right now. >> president obama gave an interview recently and talked about looking for a successor for ben bernanke that could step down. do you think that's helping with the volatility? >> certainly. we're kind of shocked. almost like he got pushed off the door. it was an interview nobody expected. we didn't need it right now. >> and when you look at volatility, 8 straight days of swings of triple digits in
either direction, do you expect that to continue for a while? >> get used to it. it's going to stay that way, maybe worse. if you can't handle that volatility, you're only down 5%, take some off the table. >> he's going to have more tonight on "mad money" on cnbc. now what could be a significant breakthrough in a bitter fight on capitol hill. immigration reform is the focus again today as lawmakers inch toward a possible agreement in the senate. nbc's capitol hill correspondent, heldy o'donnell, has more for us. >> reporter: good morning. they worked late into the night write a new version of immigration reform with more border security. democrats want to get something passed with a dozen or more republicans, and that's the hard part. always a hot political issue, but now, immigration is pitting republican versus republican. one fight is over when and how undocumented immigrants, already
here, could gain legal status and eventual citizenship. >> it's an immediate amnesty and legalization and this attempt of enforcement after that. we need to fundamentally reverse that order. >> the facts are that 11 million people live in the shadows, and they live here and date back in amnesty, and by god they are being exploited every single day. >> another fight is over border security. a new senate proposal intended to win over more republican votes would build more border fence and deploy another 20,000 border agents. >> if you hire the border patrol agents and put them on a border they're not going to read a comic book. they're going to do their job. you don't need to prove to me they're going to do their job. you just need to get them on the border so they can do their job. >> people tell me they don't trust the federal government when it comes to securing our boarders. and why would they?
>> reporter: there is more work to do. backers of the plan say they will also tighten restraints on visas and electronics. all of this will be voted on next week. thank you. in brazil, massive protests against the government turned deadly. more than 1 million people took to the streets thursday and again overnight in demonstrations throughout the country. nbc's miguel almaguer was in the think of it in rio de janeiro. >> reporter: the protests turned violent. tear gas is being lobed into the air. protestors are running from corner to corner. >> one person was killed when a car hit a crowd of protestors. today president obama holds his first meeting with privacy and civil liberty's advocates following recent revelations about the government secret surveillance programs.
meantime, a government official says there may have been problems with nsa leakers edward snowden's background check. the company that did the background check is now under investigation. fans of the miami heat are celebrating to say the least. the team's second straight nba title last night. the heat win 95-88 to win game 7 and the championship. and of course king james, lebron james, 37 points and was named mvp. and they do not teach you this at any police academy. take a look when a rookie texas officer was writing a speeding ticket this week and asked the driver to sign it, a monkey jumps out and attacks the officer's hand. apparently the monkey normally poses for pictures at car nulls, but they need to rethink that. look at that. >> that's not good. >> and the officer took it in stride, guys. it is now 7:10. jim cramer has mad money, that's mad monkey. >> i think the monkey was trying to sign the ticket. >> it looks like don't try this
again. >> did you not leave something out of the news that's quite important? >> big story. >> big, it's huge. >> the biggest. >> what did i miss -- >> kim and kanye's baby now is now reveal. >> oh, i was waiting for it. >> the baby's name is north. >> north west is the full name. >> the child's name is north west. >> the middle name is binorth. >> they could have kept the k thing going. the k being silent of course. >> that would have made more sense. >> didn't kim go on "the tonight show" and say it was absolutely -- >> we have that? we have the tape of it. >> there was a rumor, now this is one of -- >> there's so many rumors. >> one was that kanye wanted to name the baby north so he would be north west. >> that's not true. that's not one of the names on our list. >> well, maybe she didn't check with kanye about that.
>> or maybe it's not true. maybe it isn't north. >> he told the audience she was pregnant before she was able to tell. so maybe he had the name picked out before he told her. >> we will see. >> oh wait you didn't tell us. >> mr. roker. all right. let's show you what's been going on. we have wild weather to show you. fortunately not in this country but in europe. take a look at this. this is in switzerland. a violent storm tearing down tents and pulling down power lines. this is crazy stuff. they've had winter-like weather and massive flooding throughout parts of spain. now let's go north of the border into calgary and look at this, watch this -- a house -- boom, into a bridge. this is crazy flooding that's going on in canada. thousands and thousands of people will be affected by this. now, we have also got severe weather to talk about in this country. we've got low pressure breaking it's way up into the plain states. high pressure blocking it so it's going to ride up and over that ridge.
you can see the strong storms. we have severe weather today from rapid city on into madison, wisconsin and it stay there is for tomorrow and on into sunday. the threat of isolated tornadoes, hail and super cells, and rainfall is crazy. we're talking about anywhere from 3 to 5 inches of rain over the next 72 hours, from aberdeen into northern wisconsin. we'll get to your local forecast in just 30 seconds. our local fot in just 30 seconds. would you mind if i go ahead of you? instead we had someone go ahead of him and win fifty thousand dollars. congratulations you are our one millionth customer. nobody likes to miss out. that's why ally treats all their customers the same. whether you're the first or the millionth. if your bank doesn't think you're special anymore, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally.

searching for evidence at the crime scene where 27-year-old odin lloyd's body was discovered. >> we learned that odin lloyd was shot multiple times and that he apparently died where he was found. >> reporter: this time, police swept the industrial park with metal detectors, less than a mile from aaron hernandez's home. >> are you being arrested? >> reporter: the patriot's star tight end has been unable to escape the grilling attention, an online rumor that he was about to be arrested which later proved to be wrong sparked a media chase. most of the players movements during the day were caught on camera. an hour long visit to the patriot's stadium in foxboro. a stop at a gas station where he refused to talk to reporters. >> why won't you tell us what happened? >> reporter: and finally a visit to a boston building where his law firm was located. relatives of the 27-year-old victim are anxious for the police to make an arrest. they believe there's a witness who has not come forward.
>> i need whoever it is to say something who knows what happened. he knows who it is. he knows who he was with and he needs to speak up. >> reporter: hernandez did meet with his lawyers in downtown boston. they said his car is actually still at the building but he is no longer there and there has been no activity at his home overnight, savannah. i'll take it stephanie, thank you very much. we have more on the tragic death of the the actor, james gandolfini and how he spent his final days. michelle, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, matt. the autopsy just completed showed he died of a heart attack
of natural causes, and and spoke to a close friend that new of no drug or alcohol problems in the actor's recent past and seemed to be doing well. he couldn't tell us that gandolfini lead a healthy life style. he died shortly after being dinner with his son. he had spent his last day with his family. at 10:00 p.m. wednesday his 13-year-old son michael called reception saying he had found his dad collapsed in the bathroom. hotel staff say he was still breathing when they went upstairs to help. they performed cpr until paramedics arrived. and they continued to try to save his life on the way to the hospital. there doctors worked for 40 minutes massaging his heart but the man that made tony soprano a household name was pronounced dead on arrival. the victim of an apparent heart attack at age 51. >> the family is naturally totally surprised and grief struck, and this is something that nobody succumbing. >> reporter: and he was set to

>> he is worried about the economic situation. >> anyway, we're going to join them live and get a demonstration on what nick will face and he'll tell us what his worries are. >> also we want to tell you we planned to have an exclusive live interview with paula deen this morning. she in a difficult situation over her admission and sworn testimony she used racial slurs in the past. it's part of a pending lawsuit. we spoke several times with her people yesterday and then i spoke with paula yesterday afternoon. we arranged an interview this morning. we agreed there would be no restrictions to that interview only that it would be an open and candid exchange. she told me at one point savannah i don't know how to be anything but honest. she got on a plane and arrived in new york city last night and then we started to hear from her people that she is exhausted. >> so someone has been in touch with her this morning. >> we have not. she has not called us at all this morning. her publicity person and i spoke a little while ago, simply said they believe she is in the hotel but she has not confirmed
anything other than she is not here. >> she has been on this show so many times. she's a friend of this show and consider her a friend and hope she would reconsider because she needs to address this. >> no question about it. >> this half hour, new developments at the murder trial of george zimmerman. opening statements scheduled to begin on monday now that an all female jury is chosen to decide his fate. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning savannah. this six member jury is all women. the prosecutor says five of those women are white and the prosecutor says the other juror is either hispanic or black. now the jurors names are concealed because this is an anonymous jury but they have revealed something about themselves already in court. >> and is this jury panel accessible to you, sir. >> yes, your honor. >> reporter: george zimmerman's fate will rest in the hand of six jurors.
he admits as he told police after the shooting that he shot and killed 17-year-old trayvon martin but zimmerman entered a not guilty plea arguing self-defense saying martin attacked him before zimmerman fired the fatal shot. during the jury selection the jurors said details about themselves. b-76 lived in central florida since 1975. a mother of two adult children. her passion is rescuing animals. jury b-37 also has two adult children. has been called four other times to sit on other jurors. never chosen until now. juror b-51 moved here nine years ago from atlanta. never been married. she is the only juror who is not a mother. juror e-6 is a married mother of two with an 11 and 13-year-old and active member of her church. juror e-40 is a mother of an adult child. she moved to central florida 7
months ago. and juror b-29, a mother of 8, she moved her recently from chicago. unlike the other women jurors who are white, juror b-29 is either hispanic or black. trayvon martin's family says they have faith in a fair justice system. >> the concept of equal justice under the law isn't a black value, it's not a white value, it's an american value. defense attorney mark o mara. >> one thing i'm certain about with juries is i'll never be able to tell what they are thinking. >> opening statements are scheduled for monday morning. that's when jurors will report back here to the courthouse and they won't be going home. they'll be sequestered until there's a verdict or the judge declares a mistrial. that could be longer than a month. all right. thank you. lisa bloom is today's legal analyst. good morning to you. >> good morning.
>> we see there's an all female jury selected. that's not something we see every day in courtrooms. >> obviously a highly intelligent juror, right? it is unusual. we also have a female judge in this case. a lot of social media activity about this topic but when you look at the research, women and men try cases the same way. women have more sympathy for victims. but the question is who is the victim. >> let's talk about the racial make up of the jury. five of the six jurors are white. will that make a difference? do you think there's a racial element to this case? >> in a case that's become a racial flashpoint for some people i'd like to see more minority representation. both side as kuzccused of strik for racial reasons. >> there would be nice to have more diversity in the jury so the community will accept whatever verdict is reached here? >> i think so but given this trial is televised people can watch for themselves and make
their own determination. >> we'll get a key ruling on a piece of evidence. prosecutors are trying to get in expert testimony about a 911 call in which screams can be heard. they want to have voice recognition experts say that voice belongs to trayvon martin. how important is this. >> it could be the most important evidence. one of these two men is screaming in the final moment before the shots ring out. if that's trayvon martin begging for his life it completely undercuts george zimmerman's story that he was being threatened and had to shoot to save his life. zimmerman says it was him screaming for help. whether or not this scientific testimony comes in the call gets played. >> and we may have trayvon martin's mother saying that's trayvon's voice on that tape. >> interesting trial to watch. thank you so much. now outside for a check of the weather with al. >> thank you savannah. i have to tell you, this hunter hayes attracts a lot of young ladies here. we have all of these young folks
hanging out. the young people have all come for hunter hayes but in the meantime a perfect day. let's show you what we've got as far as your weather is concerned today. the heat is on. there's your first look into the plains. temperatures of anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees above normal today. tomorrow as we make our way to the east, you can see that those temperatures, 80s and 90s up into the midwest and the upper plains and as we move on into sunday, stretching all the way from the great lakes back into 7:37. you made to it friday. it is officially summertime in the bay area. good morning. i'm meteorologist christina loren. this is sunol, not a cloud in the sky here. very little cloud cover hugging the immediate coastline. no flight delays out of sfo, san jose or oakland for your getaway friday. i don't know why you'd want to get away. temperatures will be very nice.

that's important to me to do it way our family has always done it. >> every dare he's accomplished, every record he has broken has been a test for this very moment. >> the truth is it's life or death and when i make it to that other side, we all know that it's life. >> and living this life is the wallenda way. >> my great grandfather said it best. he said life is on the wire and everything else is just waiting. >> and look who just pulled up. the man himself, nik wallenda. we're standing here and i'm just like in awe of this view and this site and thinking about what it means for you to get here after so many years preparing for this. >> it's extremely exciting. this is the first time i've been on site since -- it's just a rope but not a cable but i can visually what it will be like. >> you insisted there would be no tether. why is it better for you not to have one? that's what you argued.
>> the biggest reason is because i've never worn one before other than the niagara falls walk. it's something very uncomfortable for me. it's like telling you to get in the car and drive on the other side of the road today. what are the biggest concerns here, beyond the obvious, what you're crossing. >> you know, i trained very hard in my hometown. i trained during tropical storm andrea in a torrential downpour. i trained with my wind machine, 91 miles per hour winds on the wire but it is the winds and a lot is the mental preparation and my heart is beating with excitement because this is a dream becoming reality. >> do you get nervous at all. >> there will be nerves before the walk but some of the greatest entertainers in the world get nervous before they go on stage and this is just a very unique stage. >> there's some things you couldn't prepare for, there's up drafts that come up from the bottom of the canyon. essentially hot air rushing out
of the canyon. that's one thing you couldn't be ready for. >> that's correct. it's hard to prepare for that. we have done our best. we have tried to create up drafts but when it comes down to mother nature we're not in control and that's the only thing that really concerns me. >> and we should point out when you step on this fire this will be the first time and only time you're stepping out on this actual wire. >> there's no dress rehearsal. >> that's it, right? >> it is but extremely exciting. >> no room for error here. >> no room for error. >> we're more nervous than nik is. >> beyond. my stomach is in knots. i don't know how you're going to do it but i'm excited to be here and witness this. good luck. >> we'll talk to you throughout the morning. >> sounds great. >> guys, back to you. >> willie and natalie, thanks. thank you very much as well. >> my stomach is in knots just thinking about it. >> just ahead, the phenomenal 16-year-old who won it all on the voice. we'll catch up with danielle

people on a serious note are ending up in the emergency room, 1500 people in the er since 2010. that's triple since 2004. i'm guilty of it but i'm trying to do better. >> i'm trying to do better as well. we were talking about 3,000 visits to the er by 2015. ohio state university researchers found that people just talking on their cell phones while walking are less likely not to notice a clown passing by on a unicycle. when i'm on the phone i'm looking ahead and seeing everything. when i text i have fallen over small children. >> wow. >> but when you're on the phone you're look ago head. that's why people are pushing for the google glass. >> that will make things much easier. now you have a heads up display while you're watching. >> embrace technology. what are you still wearing a pager and the brick phone. embrace technology, man. >> okay. so when you walk into a bus. >> when i have one tooth.

here. so i'll start across. that's actually an island mesa. it sits by itself. he'll take a helicopter across when he is ready. he will begin from there and walk this way back to the land. it will take him about 20 minutes. you can see it dips in the middle. the most difficult part is in the beginning when you're walking downhill. if you can imagine doing that on a high wire but when he gets right here he will be running off this thing. this is the finish line for him. this is the home stretch. a very confident nik wallenda. coming up we'll talk more with him. he's going to let us try out our own test of skill and will here. >> not this. >> not this but we have this exact wire about 6 inches off the ground. >> and black brown? >> the special is live. is there a delay. >> no, willie was telling the joke -- >> oh, i'm sorry. i didn't hear it. >> no, you're right al. it is live, discovery channel,
8:00 eastern, 5:00 pacific. there is a bit of a delay, yes. >> like a 10 second delay or so. >> wow. all right. we could use that here. >> willie, i can't wait to see -- this is -- i actually think it's rivoting and he is very zen. does he stop talking at some point? what is the shut down? is it saturday before the walk on sunday? >> you know, it's funny, he's going to be talking to us. we'll interview him a few minutes before he gets on this wire. then he goes into a zone. we'll leave him alone and let him be with his family. they'll pray together and his pastor will be here but during the walk he'll have an ear piece in and we'll be talking with him throughout the walk. >> i'm sure he's comfortable with that. >> he says it actually relaxes him. so he says he is willing and open to us chiming in over the course of the walk to ask how it's going.
>> he very much gets in his zone. he has been wired up with medical tests and everything. the physiology of this and his heart rate actually goes down when he is on the wire. so he really gets in like a meditative state. it's pretty wild. we can't wait to see it. >> we can't either. thanks so much. skywire live, with nik wallenda, hosted by willie and natalie, sunday at 8 eastern, 5:00 pacific on discovery channel. >> thank you. al you got a check of the forecast for us. >> that's right. severe weather making it's way through the mid plains. high pressure will be blocking that. the low pressure making it's way across to the east. it's going to be slowed up so you can see we've got storms firing upright now through minnesota. we have a risk of strong storms, isolated tornadoes, damaging winds and hail from rapid city into wisconsin. same thing again for saturday and as we sbhoouf sunday a risk of strong storms, much through the same reason again. rainfall over the next 72 hours.

great grandfather said life is on the wire and everything else is just waiting. >> your great grandfather lost his life on the wire at 73 years old. how much does that stay with you. >> it inspires me to be honest more than anything. we know the reasons why he lost his life and i'm not in that situation. i have trained for this distance. i have trained for holding on to that cable if there's an emergency. trained for the worst cases. winds of 91 miles per hour. and we'll cutoff before it gets to 91 miles per hour. >> but you say you can hold on to the cable. >> if there's a problem i'll go down to the cable and hold on. there's helicopters standing by. they can be with me 30 to 60 seconds. when it's your life you can hold on for a long time. >> one of the things we haven't talked about is the heat that could be in the steel cable. temperatures of 90 to 95 degrees. the cable could have upwards of 110 and 120 degrees.
>> that was part of my training in florida, in sarasota was the fact that it was 101 heat index the too day and it was a good time. to the hand it was hot but that's where my wire shoes become so key. they're actually suede leather or elk skin bottom. i'll also wearing a pair of shots. so the heat isn't overbaring. the top of my feet were hotter than the bottom. >> you started walking a wire when you were about two years old. >> about this height. >> which we have no ability as we have already kind of been showing this morning. >> this is a massive wire. >> willie is actually in front of me. >> he volunteered to help out, to test it for you. >> test the winds and all of that stuff. >> what tips would you give us as they attempt this again. >> the big thing about learning to walk a wire is being extremely focused in practice. >> willie you're a pro. >> i am. >> i spent three to four hours a
day, five days a week for 32 years of my 34 years on a wire. a lot of focus. but when i'm walking across i'll be focussing in front of me and because it's such a long spans. >> nicely done. >> he's leading the way. >> he could help you. >> because it's so long, i'll actually look about halfway across and change my focal point. >> and the wife is live the whole time. it's constantly moving. >> you're right. it has a life of it's own. as i walk it's important that i change my rhythms because i can build a frequency into this cable that will become larger and larger. have to slow down and speed up and adjust my step sizes which is a key reason why my father is in my ear as well. he'll say nick, slow down. my uncle will be on one side and have his hand on that cable and someone else will have their hand on the cable. they act as a shock absorber. it will take a lot of the shock out as well. a lot of it is peace of mind as
well. >> we'll talk to your uncle and father coming up this hour. >> nik wallenda. the discovery special is live sunday 8:00 p.m. eastern, 5:00 pacific. >> more members of the flying wallendas coming up. >> that's right but up next, the biggest consumer headline right after this. ♪ ♪ i see you made yourself breakfast. how'd you know? ♪

>> i am not really that worried. i know his capabilities. i have been through it and walked the wire for 38 years, and i know what is going through his mind at the time, and i am his eyes on the outside as he is doing it, and i am watching everything and how he is feeling and we communicate back and forth. if he has a question, i true to look for the answer for him right away. >> you are responsible for this rig out here, this incredible piece of engineering. how did you begin to put this walk together from an engineering standpoint? >> i start with the end state that i am after and that's giving nick a platform that will allow him to succeed, and i know if i can do that he will succeed, because he has the talent. >> the wire will be drawn out there today, and then you will hangi hangi hanging. >> it's one shot.

training in sarasota where i trained with gusts 45 to 55 miles per hour, and in a tropical storm -- >> never 1500 up, right? >> you are right, and that's a mental game. that's why in training i walked the cable multiple times in shots and backwards and forwards, and the rain and the wind, and the wire is the same whether it's two feet or 1500 feet off the ground. >> how important is it to you to have your dad in your ear while you are walking? >> very important. he can talk to me about pacing, and pacing is so key that i just mentioned, and if i speed up or slow down, and when i should or shouldn't, so i don't create rhythm in the cable. >> we should point out the importance of the pole. it anchors you down, right? >> it more than anchors me down. it's something that i can work with. there's wind -- >> it's like, 40 pounds.

>> he's a very talented guy. >> he's been married a long time wl a bunch of kids. he should know by now. >> so here's a question we have for you and i think we might know the answer. do you get enough sleep? >> last night between frank -- i think it was frank. it looked like frank. had a little sniffle thing. >> is that what it was? >> that was it. not quite that bad. but at 4:00 in the morning, that's what it feels like. usually bambino is like the best little dog. i think there's something wrong with that gland that dogs have. there they are. there are the culls. i had about three hours last night. >> what do you do? do you flip them? >> i'm so nice in the beginning. i'm gentle. just to see if he'll turn over on his own. even though i know he's not going to. then i'm just a little more aggressive.
what? what? poor guy. >> but you're oblivious. it's a bad feeling. i found when you bounce your side of the bed, and then it just jolts him a little. >> who are you talking about? >> i was just describing what happened when there's someone next to you snoring and you don't want to wake him up. >> i'm sure you were talking about when you were in that bad marriage. that's what you were talking about. that's the only time you've ever been in bed with anybody else. just say so. >> so you're supposed to get seven or eight hours of sleep a night to function. we did a today.com polls and 72% of people said they sleep between five and seven hours a night. i don't know how -- i know that 24 years ago out on a fun ship cruise somewhere off the coast of italy frank and i made cody, and all the sudden, hey, i'm looking at you miss bobby
thomas, back from her honeymoon. even though she said it was jamaica. so i got pregnant. and it messes with your hormones so much. and i've literally not slept one night through in 24 hours. >> unbelievable. >> maybe i did when i had my feet operated on and i was on drugs. but honestly, i haven't. and i seem to function okay. >> you do? >> maybe you get used to it. but i couldn't function on the sleep you get. if i haven't eaten like all day, by the end of the day, everything is a hair trigger. no matter what somebody says to me, i get really irritated. and if i don't sleep. >> well, those are pretty big. >> so 23% of the people, only 23% say they get between 7% and 5%. >> i was reading my devotion the other day that said it's not really how you act in life. it's how you react.
and it's like. you can be so nice to people and stop and give a homeless person money or buy them a cup of coffee. but somebody steps in line in front of you and all of the sudden you find out what you're really like. that really hit me hard. it was like, oh my gosh. i have work to do on myself. >> so we want you to take this quiz. i get a terrible angry feeling when somebody cuts me off or cuts in front of me. i want to eyeball the driver. >> i know, but i get the look of, i want to know what you look like next to me. >> i think it really is -- this is the way i explain it to myself so i don't want to commit harry kerry. don't want people to get ahead of them. and they don't want somebody to
get the blame for something that they're not responsible for. so when somebody does something that's just so wrong, the innate sense is wait a minute, i want justice to be done. if you wait for justice in this world you're going to have a long wait. >> whether it's taking a parking space or anything. >> anything that's just not right. innately and immorally it's not right. >> my parents used to take that stand in parking spaces to save them. if they saw a spot over there, they're like, get out of the car. >> run over three egyptian children, they will. >> we stood in the space and waited until they made the loop like three losers standing in a space. they made us do that. >> would people scream at you? >> no, they wouldn't. we just stood there and wait until our parents made the loop. >> sometimes those loops are big. >> so here's the quick on sleep. this is how you know if you're lacking sleep. number one, do you sleep through the alarm clock or press snooz a
lot? >> i don't have an alarm clock. >> you wake up? >> i hit snooze and i'm always scared when i do it. >> do you need caffeine to wake up in the morning? >> yes. >> yes. >> do you experience a mid afternoon slump? >> no, because i take a nap. >> do you turn down social engagements because you're tired at night? >> yes. i do. >> i turn them down because i really don't like people anymore. and there's nobody i want to spend time with. honestly. very few people. if regis calls all right, otherwise, i don't think so. stop it, kathie. you've got to learn to stop it. >> all right. do you fall asleep within five minutes after lying in bed? which is a bad sign? >> no. i fall asleep within three. >> all right. so anyway if you answer yes to those things, you're tired. >> i already told you that i was
sleep deprived. i know it. >> now this is going to make us cr cr cranky. >> this was unjust. it was not our mistake. we love her. anyway, we're talking about the summer solstice. on wednesday in our news segment we asked when does the summer solstice occurred. and the guest said, it was when the sun reaches the highest point in the sky. which is correct. then she added it's also when the planet is closest to the sun. that's not correct. that's the winter. it's actually when the northern hemisphere tilts most directly toward the sun. the planet is actually closest to the sun in january. does that also remain true if you're in australia? >> i don't know. i don't know.
>> northern hemisphere. >> stop it, kathie! you know what it's time for? bobbie's buzz. and you have never looked more beautiful. >> how was the honeymoon, by the way? >> it was awesome. we got to celebrate. the couple that introduced us, jamie and howie, we got to go to their wedding the very next weekend. they got ready at round hill in jamaica. so pretty. we stayed a few extra days. it's gorgeous. >> so what does michael say to you now when he sees you in the morning? >> he always wakes up and goes i love you. it's like a little thing we have. >> aw, he's so sweet. >> we got one out of two ended up making it. i feel really confident that you guys are going to make it. >> we are going to make it. i've waited this long.
