7:31 am
the judge and that judge says that she actually feels bad about the sentence. >> let's talk to dan abrams and nancy grace about this. nancy the host of "nancy grace" on hln. the judge may feel bad but so hard to watch that. >> it's hard to believe that this judge felt bad listening to her in court. i mean this, is outrageous. this is a woman who's coming to court for a contempt of court hearing, right. she's coming to court because the court is upset she violated a court order. that's not to minimize it meaning they empaneled a jury, ready to go. this is important stuff but you do not handle it by yelling and screaming at this victim saying to her things like, oh you have anxiety now. wait till effectively you get put behind bars? you didn't have to put this -- she's talking about her kids and trying to take care of her life and this judge is berating her and putting her in jail for three days. >> three days in jail, nancy? >> well, there are obvious
7:32 am
problems with what the judge did. now, one thing the judge claims is that we had a jury ready. you want to tell me this is the only crime in seminole county. they couldn't have had that jury hear a different trial and not only that, having worked with battered women for so long it's a very, very delicate situation because you're asking the woman to testify against the breadwinner, this woman has one child, she's homeless. the child is 1-year-old. they had to search for the now he's in jail. she's in jail. nobody is supporting the baby. that's the reality this woman has to deal with and this judge with her cushy position on the bench has no idea what this victim is going through. let me remind everybody, lady justice is blind. that's true. but she also holds a shield to protect the victim and, judge jerri collins needs to be recalled.
7:33 am
women as linsey pointed out un unwilling to come forward so what recourse do judges have in that case in order to do something about the abuse. >> the judge in a case like this can send a message by doing something like community service. but you don't need to yell at the victim. you don't need to put the victim -- >> yeah, but, dan, she still has a conviction on her record. to give her to community service you have to convict her first. how is she going to get a job? she has a record for this. >> i agree with you except there also to be some form of rules. if a jury is impaneled in this case to hold this guy responsible, right, the reason this jury is being impammed is to prevent this guy from doing this again to somebody else. >> she called them ahead of time. she told the court -- she told the victim's advocate. who works for the court. >> right. >> she was not going to testify. and there are more than one way to skin a cat. you can have the police officer. if she's unavailable to testify
7:34 am
that's an exception to the hearsay rule. they didn't need her. reason. >> look, they do need her in the -- i mean they do need her to try to get a conviction. the victim. >> it's not easy and you'll agree -- >> it's not easy, dan, you're right about that. >> so it's not easy. look, i'm not -- i'm not going to try to blame her except to say that for her to just tell the victim's advocate i'm not going to -- >> i'm so beside myself. this woman is homeless for pete's sake. she's got a 1-year-old child. now she's got a record, a criminal record on -- how is she ever going to get a job nowy this is back assward. >> i'm more concerned about what happened to that child. this judge -- this woman shows up in court not expecting to right? she's got a child at home. she -- >> she's begging. >> begging the judge, saying, judge, please don't do this to me. please, please, please and the
7:35 am
judge -- what happened to the into foster care? >> the next time, dan, that this guy holes a knife to her throat or punches her again, do you think she'll call 911? forget about it. she'll die first. >> as you both say just outrageous. >> hope the judge is happy now. >> coming up a new show pushing our fears to the limit under ground in the top fear scaring us all revealed from clowns to drowning to heights. what's the number one? that answer next on "gma." make mistakes. but the stainmaster petprotect carpet and cushion system helps prevent pet stains, reduce pet odor and easily release pet hair. so get petprotect, and let your pets be pets. i was not aware of how much acidity was in my diet... that it was damaging the enamel.

8:07 am
>> well, i want to congratulate you and i know that you had so much praise for your national feel? >> you know, honestly i was so nervous going into it and it's something that i've been preparing for for years. i think i was just more worried about what the reaction would be because any time there's a change or something different resistance. i think the most thing i was excited about was the aftermath and how much support there really was. >> and sadly there was some negative and specifically an offensive tweet from mike bell, an atlanta broadcaster. how did you react? when did you see his tweet? >> just before i was going to click on it i thought, you know, why? you know, why even, you know, give it the attention? i didn't even want to open it so i've actually yet to read it. >> i love that you took the power back in your way, but for those of us who have read it it's not only offensive it's misogynist, sexist, a horrible
8:08 am
thing to read and when he was called on it he apologized. do you accept his apology? >> i accept hit apology. to me it really was about the fact that he came after me because i was a woman. >> he attacked you solely because you were a woman. and by the way, you've earned where you are right now in your career. >> being able to call these baseball games, yes, i'm a female. but i wanted to get to the point where it's like, let's think about what i'm saying, what i'm doing and not so much, you know, the sex that i am. >> you are one of several female pioneers in a male dominated sports world. how do we move past sexism? >> i want to get to a point where we hear a female voice on nba, nfl age it's like, sweet, she's doing a good job. >> your passion is infectious and i love that you haven't let any of this affect who you are and what you want to do. i'm proud of you and thank you for all the women and all the girls who are looking up to you. >> well, let's keep this going, amy.

8:10 am
her entire left side went numb. i'm extremely worried. >> reporter: a few days later kim was able to learn her upcopping dance routine but from her home in atlanta. doctors not clearing her to fly cross country to l.a. in time for the show. and then a bombshell in the ballroom. >> in the instance of illness or other health-related matters affecting a participant's ability to participate in the game, they must withdraw. >> reporter: kim's fans rallying, a petition reaching more than 22,000 signatures. to bring back kim and partner tony dovolani. >> we're welcoming kim zolciak. >> thank you for having me. >> this plane trip to the show your stroke. how are you feeling? >> i'm feeling great. i was very nervous, obviously, on the whole flight i was very nervous but i feel great. >> now you have six kids. >> yes. >> two shows. you were dancing nine hours a day. do you think you may have extended yourself a little too much?
8:11 am
>> probably, but actually was a blessing in disguise. the minor t.i.a. revealed that i have a pfo which is like a hole in your heart that i was born with that never closed. so at some point -- >> do the doctors think that may have led to the stroke? >> that's what caused it basically because the blood clot was able to cross over through the hole whereas most people don't have that and not able to do that. >> there are a lot of people out there who said when they first heard the news they said she's faking it. she never had a stroke. she still hasn't had a stroke but what do you say to those detractors. >> i think it's sick that somebody would ever think that -- some of the people that their mentality. i don't think many people would fake a stroke. >> i would hope not. i really would hope not. with the stars." it's been one of the best experiences of my life and difficult to not be on the show dancing. >> there was a lot of controversy, 22,000 signatures on a petition to get you back on the show with tony dovolani but you sent the producers an iphone video of your dance but in the
8:12 am
in the event of a celebrity's disabled during training, such that they will be unable to perform in a live episode of the program, the sent and their professional will be required to withdraw from the competition." now, do you feel like this was fair under your circumstances? >> no. because i was able to dance. i just couldn't fly so i learned my dance on saturday. i was discharged from the hospital on friday, i learned it on saturday and feel like they could have done something via satellite or something. they made exceptions for those who couldn't dance and got injured in a rehearsal or could have used the tape i did on saturday of me dancing. >> did they give you a reason why they were able to continue and you weren't? >> no, they didn't. they didn't. i tried to kind of get an answer because i really do love the show. i love everybody, the purchases, casting directors, but had it came down to it the lawyers made the final decision. >> you posted a video of the "i dream of jeannie" cha-cha. are we going to be able to see that on the finale of "dancing with the stars"? >> i'm not sure what they're going to have me doing. i couldn't care. i'll just be so excited to be

8:14 am
just look at these before and afters. doctors who use it say the secret is something you already have, platelets in your blood. >> platelets have growth factors this them and they're very good at getting hair to regrow and getting the hair follicles to thicken. >> reporter: it's called platelet rich plasma therapy or prp and research is preliminary but promising. while the procedure is not yet fda approved doctors who use it say it's simple. blood is drawn, the plasma separated in a machine and platelets from the patient's own blood injected directly into the scalp. saying that they contain growth factors that stimulate the regrowth and thickening of fair follicles. hair. >> i've always had fine hair and volume. >> reporter: she says weeks after her first treatment she noticed a difference and here she is after five treatments. >> i feel the hair coming in.
8:15 am
i love the results. >> reporter: at just 22 years thinning. he tried every over-the-counter product available. and worse. i didn't know what else to do. >> reporter: he's had five procedures now and gained more than just a head of hair. >> it gave me my confidence back. it helped me to, you know, helped me to want to go out again. i don't have to we are a hat and definitely boosted my >> reporter: some studies suggest that while the results look good, they may not be long lasting. still, the procedure is giving hope to millions with thinning hair. schiavocampo, abc news, new jersey. >> let's talk to dr. jen ashton those are pretty remarkable. what do you say to people dealing with this. >> this is incredibly upsetting so we need to be empathetic. be patient and let me show you why. it has to do with the science between the life cycle of a hair follicle.
8:16 am
is anogen, the active phase. phase. it lasts for two to six years. next phase is the catagen, transition, lasts a couple of weeks, a minority of your hair follicles are in this and final phase is telogen, resting face and if you start a therapy today you might not see results for a to be patient. >> what does it mean to this prp is not fda approved? >> well for those of us in clinical medicine it doesn't mean that much. we use things awe the time that aren't fda approved. that means they need more study and a good informed concept process understanding the risks versus benefits but the science behind how prp is thought to work is pretty cool. let me show you. if you see regular thinning hair, you inject these growth factors directly into the scalp. it does several things it increases the diameter or density of the existing hair follicle, recruits new growth and it's thought to even prevent
8:17 am
the existing hair from falling out. i actually had this done. you're going to see my before and after pictures. i had had about hairs on my head on the left. after four treatments i had a really significant result. but, again, it's not for everyone so it's not going to work for patients who have scarring on their scalp. it's great for male pattern baldness or traction alopecia for people with extensions in and actively studied. >> if this doesn't work what does work? >> a lot of things you can do and take. in terps of things you can take, minoxidil over the counter works. the prescription drug fena fenasteride and the vitamin b buy continue can help too and what you can do rest your hair. don't overprocess, don't overcolor. if there's a medical cause, treat that underlying medical cause. that's key but this is exciting research. >> it is and i bet you'll get a lot of questions throughout the morning. you will be on twitter @drjashton.
