2:13 am
you know, i remember one time tori came -- she hosted for you one time when you were out. and she came -- i invited her to lunch. and i was not a fan of tori's. i wasn't not a fan. >> wasn't familiar. >> you know, i didn't know her, and i liked her on the show. and i said, what are you doing for lunch? would you like to come up to my house in connecticut? she ended up spending all afternoon. she and her assistant came up. i fell in love with her. she was so sweet, candid and lovable. i basically said to her, you know what, tori? i don't know what your issues are with your mom. you know what you should start doing? start texting your mother pictures of the children. that's it. you don't even have to put in any words with it. just -- she'll know -- so she gets to see her grandchildren, and things will start to heal. it starts with a little thing like that. but if she'd had cameras on at the time -- >> right, it wouldn't have. >> it seems manipulative. you don't know if it's for show or if it's for real. >> yeah.

>> and i don't like to watch train wrecks. they make me so sad. >> the thing -- you know, the thing i took away from it, uncomfortable as it was to watch, he looks horrible. like he looks -- >> and he's a very handsome guy. >> first i thought, you know, he's kind of a jerk and he cheated. when you watch this guy -- and i mean, look, all my sympathy goes to her, but you watch him, you see a broken guy, clearly. >> this is the face of a guy who has addiction issues that he's admitted to. they are not separated, by the way. they're just trying to work through this. i mean, what a terrible thing. and it also does -- it's a window into him that i didn't know before. now, what difference would it mike if i know or don't know? who cares if i know? >> i just hope they're doing it just because they need the money because i do think that she could privately go to her mom. we know candy. and say mom, we are really hurting, and would you please help us out so we can turn these cameras off. i hate it when anybody has to do something just for the money. >> i bet you partly it's money and partly it must be something else. >> i don't know.

2:34 am
welcome back to more of "today" on this winesday wednesday. ready to play "who knew." this saturday millions will tune in to watch the kentucky derby. we're going to test your knowledge and culture of the kentucky derby.
2:35 am
kathie lee is right across the street at the nbc experience store. she's ready to hand out 100 bucks to anyone who gets the answers right. and to those who don't, wah, wah, they get a kathie lee cd. here to help me in studio is nbc sports host, carolyn manno. hey, girl. >> hey. >> are you ready? >> i'm ready. thanks for having me. >> let's play. >> this gentleman's from missouri. the kentucky derby is one of three races that make up the triple crown. what are the two? the preakness stakes? the travers stakes and belmont stakes? the preakness stakes and belmont stakes? or the travers stakes and santa anita derby? >> the preakness stakes and belmont stakes. >> that's exactly right. >> oh, yes. we have our first winner. tell us about that. >> that's right. the gentleman knows his horse trivia. well, those are the two correct answers. and a shot at the triple crown really only comes once a year for horses, as you know. it's run by 3-year-olds. you get one chance and there's only been 11 in history and 50
2:36 am
have come really close. >> oh, really? okay, let's see what happens this time around. >> you know what's hysterical? right after this gentleman won, his wife just took it right from him. i love it. and you're from? >> illinois. >> illinois. which of the following is not the name of a horse expected to run in this year's kentucky derby? california chrome? wicked strong? intense holiday? or aristides? >> "c." >> enjoy the cd. >> she was so happy. to get that. the correct answer is "d," aristides. >> he won the first kentucky derby in 1875. the other three have a chance at it. although the one at the top of the list, california chrome, is the favorite going in. >> all right. back across. >> beautiful lady from valencia. what year marked the last time a horse won the triple crown? >> '62. >> she wanted it. she so wanted it. >> she looks kind of like kath a little bit.
2:37 am
so the correct answer here, caroline, is 1978. >> yes. and the reason why is because horses don't run as much as they used to, hoda. so what you'll see now, what you didn't used to see is that if a horse doesn't win, they might take the preakness or, and then they might show up at the belmont stakes. a horse that wins the kentucky derby has a tougher road today because he'll be facing horses who maybe didn't run in the preakness. seven out of those 11 horses really won the triple crown in the '30s and '40s and it hasn't been that way in a little while. >> got it. back across. >> the mint julep has been served at churchill downs for nearly a century. which is not an ingredient? fresh mint? simple syrup? bourbon? and rum? >> i'll say trick question, fresh mint. >> oh. >> i wanted the cd. >> wow. >> that's how badly she wanted the cd. that's love. all right, the correct answer, we could have figured this one
2:38 am
out, rum. >> yeah, but i like her style. she really wants to get after it at the derby, and that's okay. there's a lot of bourbon, a little bit of mint and a little sugar water and that makes up the julep. that's why it's so popular at the derby. >> everybody loves it. it's a good one. catch the 140th derby this saturday on nbc. we're going to show you how to choose the right frames from your face. and matt walsh is here. love it. but first, these messages. as a kid, i made a list of all the places i wanted to visit. i'm still not going to make it to mars, but thanks to hotwire's incredibly low travel prices, i can afford to cross more things off my list. this year alone, we went to the top of the statue of liberty... and still saved enough to go to texas-- to a real dude ranch! hotwire checks the competition's rates every day... so they can guarantee their low prices. so we got our 4-star hotels for half price. next up, hollywood! ♪ h-o-t-w-i-r-e ♪ save big on car rentals too, from $11.95 a day.

2:44 am
around among the group, did that happen on day one or did it take work? >> we actually spend a lot of time rehearsing scripts. every season we'll spend four or five weeks throughout the season rehearsing scripts, putting them on their feet, improvising new lines and such. by the time we get to filming it, it's pretty tight. >> that's good. >> it's been tight. >> ultimately you save time as opposed, it seems like. >> we're not finding it on the day. we've kind of ran it a few times. >> i think that's smart. >> yeah, yeah. >> do you guys break up on the set? because some of those lines are so funny. >> the hardest scenes for me is when we're doing limousine scenes. we're driving to the capitol or something. >> there are a lot of them. >> there's a lot of limousine scenes. three people on one bench and three on another. it's very cramped. inevitably a cameraman is trying to make you laugh. those are the hard ones to not laugh during. >> did you think it was going to be such a big hit? >> no. >> julia's won three golden globes. >> i think she's won three emmys. somebody google that, please. don't we have an intern? >> there wasn't one when you started in communications.
2:45 am
>> no, there wasn't. mike doesn't know how to google. you don't google? >> i have googled. i'm just not interested. >> are you currently googling? >> i'm not curious at all about anything in the world. >> that's honest. >> that's honest. it's honest. >> i'm slightly not curious. >> yeah. >> we're so excited for you. i know, it's a bummer. >> i'll finish this and i'll be out. can i finish this or am i getting rolled? am i getting booted? >> sit with us. >> thank you. you can catch "veep" sunday nights on hbo. if you're taking, like, a long plane ride or something, if i end up going to l.a., i'll watch "veep" the whole way. >> or wherever it is. >> yeah, it's only half an hour from here to l.a. there's a little monkey business going on behind the scenes here. wait until you see what we're talking about. >> it's hip to be square or round or oval. how to choose the right glasses for the shape of your face right after this. avo: this is megan.
2:46 am
2:47 am
2:48 am
this is megan's gym. for those who believe serious exercise doesn't have to feel so serious. one a day woman's vitacraves with key nutirents like calcium and vitamin d. all the fun of a gummy that's a complete multivitamin. in "today's style," glasses are the season's hottest fashion accessory. whether you wear them for fun or function, you want them to look great. >> it's all about the shape of
2:49 am
your face. and here to help you find the frames that are just a perfect fit is susan swimmer. that's her real name. >> uh-huh. >> fashion feature editor for "more" magazine. >> how are you? >> i'm excited about glasses frames. >> tell us why. >> yes, why are you. >> a couple reasons. it is a fashion statement, but more people are wearing glasses today. >> they are? >> yes. because actually, contact lens wearers report that they're wearing their glasses at least about 30% of the time. we have a longer allergy season. contact lens wearing is tough. >> we're working longer hours. >> yes. we're over-air conditioned and overheated. >> okay, susan swimmer. >> let's start with the shaped face. the first face is an oval face. >> you have an oval face, you want to introduce a little angularity to your face. so a square or rectangular-shaped glass is going to work better on your face. it's going to add angles. now, here's the trick. the glasses' frames should not be wider than your widest point.
2:50 am
so some people have trouble understanding. >> the jackie o. thing which was the big, big lenses? >> it's not best, although i love a full sunglass, i'm not going to lie. >> it's more protective. >> it also hides. >> these are great. >> you have an oval face. >> i do? i think people don't know what shape their face is. >> and you can get help with that. i will say lenscrafters has 900 stores and a great website. so you're creating angles. that's the takeaway for the oval. you have a little bit more of a round face. in between a round and an oval. >> that's just jowls. my heart, when you take my hair away, i have more of an oval. >> look at that. >> i know my face. >> and you're also -- >> those look good. own them. take them. >> okay. >> next one is square. >> next, square. you have a square face. you want to create a little more
2:51 am
