2:07 am
don't act like it's not in your fridge too sometimes. >> are you kid -- >> little -- not like -- not like food in containers. >> is there some turkey in there, 1-year-old turkey. >> we bought some other stuff, sauces. oh, that must have been from -- and i opened up the spice cabinet. >> yeah. >> lots of stuff is there. i was like, what -- not just spices but crackers that were opened from god knows when. >> you put your shoes in there, don't you? you use your kitchen for other things like boib thomas does. >> when they come i clean. >> that's good. >> wow, my apartment looks awesome. >> can you imagine how horrible holidays would be if you couldn't stand your family? >> oh, god. >> that's the case for a lot of people. >> yeah. yeah. >> couldn't stand them. >> i know. you know what, this is interesting. you brought up something interesting about how sometimes kids and their parents get separated when they're having a meal together. >> right. yeah. after church on sunday we went to a little restaurant that we love.
2:08 am
it's actually the restaurant where cody and cassie went as little people to learn how to behave. i remember watching them play. cody had his gi joe guys and cassie would have her barbies at the end of lunch cody's guys would be dead and kathy's people would be matched up and be in love. i thought that was healthy, nice play. they were in their own creative world. i was at a lovely, lovely -- two families having lunch as well. i saw something that i've never, ever seen before. it was every child had on headphones and their own ipad through the entire lunch. the food came and they ate with this. >> with the headphones on? >> yeah. i -- i'm not judging at all what the parents are doing, i just thought -- i remember thinking, oh, my gosh, how life has changed so much. and i treasure those lunches i
2:09 am
had with my kids where they would talk and i didn't lose -- you lose them so soon anyway. i think places like college, boyfriends, cars and things. i want to hold my kids as close as long as i can. >> right. right. >> i understand why it's great for the parents because then they can talk and chat and fun for the kids, they don't have to -- >> i think it should be -- it's not -- like i get why sometimes parents need quiet time and they want their child to do their thing. i think once the food is served, the headphones should come off, ipads down, you should have conversation. but i do think there's something weird that's happening. you can see with kids and ipads and headphones and even i'm sorry even grownups with headphones, you walk down and i feel so sorry for flight attendants. would you like something to drink? what? what? >> everybody is in their own little world. there's so little in life we can control. the world is jt such a mess and everything is going down the
2:10 am
toy toy. you want to control one little -- one piece of the earth, one piece of the nether world. >> you walk down the street and someone is listening to music and they knock into you. i bumped into someone and said i'm sorry. they're so lost, they didn't know that i hit them accidentally. >> like that girl on the basketball court. whoosh. yeah, i don't know. i would love to hear how you feel about it. i'm not judging, i'm saying this is how much -- we had a segment on a couple years ago where we talked about we now live in what's called a post modern society. for the first time ever in the history of civilization, we are more comfortable with technology than we are with other human beings. i think that's ultimately a dangerous thing. >> you see it in how kids are dating. now it's a text and a text and a text and an e-mail. then when you finally get the phone call, the real contact, even that's a big deal. >> they don't know how to actually talk to each other when they go on a date? >> i don't know. i don't know. >> anyway, boy, am i old. anyway, yesterday, you want to feel grateful.
2:11 am
first of all, the thing i don't see enough people doing before meals is saying a prayer of gratitude. i know you like crazy people, but i think it's so important to realize where all our blessings are coming from. yesterday we went to the new york city rescue mission. >> we go every year. it's a great thing where a lot of families come and get a nice, good, hot thanksgiving meal. >> they're brought in from the homeless shelters. >> some of the kids are so adorable. >> so precious. >> and so great. they had music and -- >> tony wright from fox was over there. he was singing away and he took over for me. i didn't sing this year. >> real thing about this kid. this kid is sitting at a table. hi. he said have you seen evelyn. i go, evelyn? evelyn, have you seen her? he said, who is she? she's my mom. she missed the bus. he was with his grandmother. so we're sitting there, the kid's staring at the door. then this woman walks in, and you could have died. this kid -- >> sheer joy. >> -- hugged her waist and
2:12 am
didn't let go. it was like one of those moments. he was such a great kid. i thought, you know, you look at a kid like that. he's beaming. dressed. he had his jacket on. >> yeah. >> it was very sweet. >> i have been doing that for many, many, many years. it's an amazing organization. when i started going to that thanksgiving banquet years ago, there were no families. >> wow. >> it was all individuals, mostly men. >> wow. >> in the years since it's women, it's all -- >> families. >> families. so many families. >> yeah. >> you know, let's just be really mindful to start taking care of people that don't have the means to take care of themselves. >> all right. occasionally on our program we get to break news. it doesn't happen often, but every now and then something is leaked at 10:00 a.m. here is what is leaked. entertainer of the year by "entertainment weekly," it is sandra bullock. >> yeah. she's having a heck of a year. >> the pictures inside are gorgeous. i'm sorry but -- >> first of all, she's drop dead beautiful.
2:13 am
she's so talented and a nice woman. >> i like her hair like that. >> kind of messy. this is even a better picture. love this. love this. look how great she looks. that only took about a couple hours and about five people. we've seen her without any of that. she looks just as gorgeous. >> she does. you know when we loved, we saw "the heat" when we went to florida. we sat with popcorn on the couch and watched "the heat." if you haven't seen that with melissa mccarthy. >> i have not seen it. >> let's watch a clip since we have it. >> stop pulling my pants off. >> jesus. >> what? >> what are those? >> what? what are those? >> stop. stop it. they're my spanx. they hold everything together. >> why? what's popping out? >> it went on about airing it out. >> "gravity" made 536 million worldwide. she's having a heck of a year. >> she is. congratulations. >> remember what happened when she won the academy award and then her marriage imploded. then she got that beautiful little boy luis.

2:30 am
2:31 am
2:32 am
we're back on this tuesday. >> here to tell you what he's really thinking is relationship expert and host of "love life" with matthew hussey. >> i showed up and i was like oh, wow, you really got me spot on, obviously. >> shall we begin? >> yeah, let's do it. >> all right. tricia has a question for you and here it is. she says, we've been dating for two years and are in the process of house hunting. we haven't met each other's family yet but i suggested we should meet each other's family first before buying a house together. he changes the subject each time i bring it -- bring up family. he seems very hesitant.
2:33 am
what should she do? >> i think firstly family seems important to her and it seems less important to him. that could be for one of a few reasons. the worst reason that she would want to hear is that he's not really committed. he's not really house hunting with her, he's just going through the experience of looking at houses. >> a mortgage is one thing. >> he's not actually going to do it and, therefore, he's not meeting the family either because he's keeping her at arm's length. another reason is he is lazy. if he's across the country, there's another part that might not want to do it. still not a good sign. laziness can come down to it, too. >> he can be estranged from his family. she would have known that in the two years. >> even if he's not close to his family, you'd think he would want to meet her family. my big question to her is why are you asking me? ask the guy. she keeps asking him, do you want to come meet my family, should we meet each other's families. if he keeps avoiding the subject start talking about that.
2:34 am
start asking him -- look, is this family thing making you uncomfortable? if so, why? people don't give other people enough credit for giving them honest answers. if you ask the guy, a lot of times he'll tell you. >> that was a smart -- >> good, matthew. >> next question, ladies. >> ann is going to ask her own question on skype. >> we hope. >> hi, ann. >> hi. >> of course she is. it's working, yeah! >> hi, ann. >> hi. >> what's your question, hon. >> i recently celebrated my 31st birthday. i have a great life, amazing family and friends but the one thing i focus on is that i don't have anyone to share my life with. i think when i go on dates or meet men i try to rush things and force it to work and i just want to get to a place where i'm happy being single and can go on dates and have fun. how do i do that? >> good question. yeah. >> good for you for your honesty, sweetie. i think that's great. >> ann, it sounds like right now you associate pain with being single and pleasure with being in a relationship, right?
2:35 am
what is it you're looking for in a relationship? what will it give you that you don't have now? >> i guess i just feel to have someone to share my life with. you know, during the holidays and things like that, it just seems like it would be nice to have someone to celebrate these things with. >> i think right now there are many people in your life you can celebrate those things with. it doesn't have to be that one special someone. i also think that tendency to rush things because you want the result is the exact thing that scares guys off, right? so the way to not rush it is to say to yourself instead, okay, what is it i really want in a guy because i'm sure there are many things you want in a relationship but when you meet someone after five minutes you begin projecting the relationship you think it is rather than the relationship you actually have. see, in the dating stage, it's one of those rare times where -- it's one of the only times where we're the buyer and the seller at the same time. right now you're thinking of yourself as the seller. will he want me? will he want me?
2:36 am
i've got to make myself good enough. i want you to remember you're the buyer as well. when you're in the early stages of dating, you're judging whether he's right for you. you won't know that in the first day, the first week or the first three months necessarily. you're going to know by what he does for you and that's something only time can tell. stop making yourself more desperate than you actually are. >> yeah. >> great advice. >> a lot of it is pressure from your loved ones, families. you're 31, not married, not having children. do you feel a lot of that, sweetie, so it's coming from outside pressures? >> i do, yes. definitely. >> here's the thing i'll say, ann. relationships are a beautiful thing. if you're not enough with one, you're not enough with one. >> that is genius. >> who are you? >> give it up for matthew. can we find a better way to skype? >> love you, matthew. >> you rocked it. >> that was great. if you have a relationship question for mr. matthew go to >> guess where you go? >> connect button.
