"dancing with the stars" last night. what a run she had. we'll talk to her all about it. >> one round shy of the semifinals. let's get to the incredible scene of emotion at penn state. the rally last night at joe paterno's home, coming as the school has now launched a new investigation overnight in that growing sex abuse scandal. abc's dan harris is still there live, in state college, pennsylvania, for us again this morning. good morning, dan. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. members of the penn state board of trustees held an emergency conference call well into the evening. abc news has learned they were unable to make a decision on the fate of joe paterno. but his support appears to be eroding. and a decision could come as soon as today or tomorrow. >> we love joe. we love joe. we love joe. >> reporter: overnight, an extraordinary scene outside of joe paterno's house. ♪ >> reporter: hundreds of students engaged in an exuberant show of support.
7:03 am
afterwards the students move from paterno's house to the campus. >> you guys -- i lived for this place. i lived for people like you guys and girls. >> reporter: but he also turned his attention to the victims in this case. >> there's been some criticism of the way we handled some of the poor victims. you know, my wife and i, we have 17 grandkids. from 16 to 3. and we pray for them every night. we're going to start praying for the kids that got involved in some of the problems that we talked about. his own code of ethics on this one? >> i think de the right thing. i think he did what he was told to do. >> reporter: but other, many others disagree. the scandal centers on this man, jerry sandusky, the former top
7:04 am
defensive coach. now accused of sexually abusing eight boys. >> unfortunately, i'm not in a position where i can make any statements. >> reporter: paterno was told of one of sandusky's victim, he reported it but not to police. >> i would like to answer them but i can't do it now. >> reporter: cite is say that is a lapse that should cost paterno his job. >> joe paterno knew about it, and did the minimum. i think he will go soon and i think he should go soon. >> reporter: with paterno's fate hanging in the balance and the campus aflame with complex and conflicting sentiment -- >> we are -- >> penn state! >> we are. >> penn state. >> we are. >> penn state. >> reporter: the emotion even spilled on to live television with former paterno player and current espn analyst, matt millen, tearing up. >> i get mad. and it's pretty disturbing.
7:05 am
>> reporter: incredible scene there. also this morning, we're hearing that the scope of the investigation into jerry sandusky is expanding. abc news has learned that the pennsylvania state police are taking calls from more people who say they, too, were victims. meanwhile, we're hearing that jerry sandusky is under a new court order that does not allow him to be alone with even his own grandchildren. robin, back to you. >> that's very telling. dan, thank you very much. and for more, espn's jeremy schaap joins us. just getting back from penn state yesterday. many reporting that joe paterno's resignation is imminent. there's a lot of editorials calling for his ouster, as well as the president there at penn state. what do you think we're going to hear in the next 24 hours or so? >> as dan said last night, the board of trustees was meeting not in person, on the phone. there are indications it will meet again tonight on campus, to discuss the fate of joe paterno, the fate of the university president. there will also be a meeting on friday, a public board of
7:06 am
trustees meeting that will be attended by the governor of pennsylvania. right now, joe paterno's future is very much in doubt. after more than six decades at penn state, after 45 years as the head coach, one of the most revered figures in all of college sports. >> and respected. >> and respected. you know, if this were happening to a coach with a different reputation, it would be a very different kind of story. so much of the anger and disappointment, is the result of the fact that people expect more from joe paterno. >> they have been so squeaky clean in all the decades that he's been there at penn state. when do we expect to hear more from him? though, he is quite vocal. we saw last night, and it was quite telling to a lot of people. he didn't say alleged victims. he said, let's pray for the victims. >> i don't know how many up we can read into that. although he has indicated before that he believes what was brought to his attention in 2002
7:07 am
was fa fact ul. the graduate assistant at the time, mike mccleary, who came to him and told him he had seen something disturbing in a shower involving jerry sandusky. paterno said in the last few day, he believed what mccleary told him, which raises further questions about paterno's actions in the immediate aftermath of what he was told. you have to wonder right now, where joe paterno's head is. so much is swirling around him. maybe there's a little bit of a disconnect. maybe he doesn't fully understand the gravity of what's going on. he's talking about beating nebraska on saturday, which is -- >> he's going to hold a press conference and talk about football. people are like, how can you -- >> that that was going to happen. and the university president canceled the press conference yesterday. paterno indicating that he was disappointed in that decision. we are possibly, though, going to hear from him today, off-campus. there are reports that his sons are arranging an off-campus press conference today. >> we'll see what happens. thank you, jeremy, for your insight. thank you guys very much. from one firestorm to another. herman cain, the embattled presidential candidate held a press conference yesterday,
7:08 am
denying all charges of sexual harassment, blaming them on a democrat machine. and promised he won't be pushed out of the race, even as another accuser has gone public with her charges. abc's brian ross spoke to her last night. and he joins us now. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is day ten of the story, with at least four different women making allegations against cain. including another one that came forward to show her face and speak publicly. she told me last night, that cain, as a boss, could be described as a monster. yet, cain continues to call all of the accusers liars. stronger than ever in his denials and defiance. >> and as far as these accusations causing me to back off and maybe withdraw from this presidential primary race. ain't going to happen. >> reporter: this is the latest accuser to identify herself. >> i'm karen kraushaar. >> reporter: this was karen kraushaar 11 years ago, just after she filed her complaint against herman cain and left
7:09 am
the restaurant association, with a reported $45,000 settlement. overnight, kraushaar told abc news, she tried to stay out of the news, for fear of retaliation by cain supporters. now, she has hired a security team to guard her home outside washington. cain said tuesday there was nothing to kraushaar's complaints. of sexual harassment. >> they were found to be baseless. and she could not find anyone to corroborate her story. >> reporter: cain also dismissed the allegations of sharon bialek, who said she was sexually assaulted by cain 14 years ago. he says he cannot remember meeting her. >> my first response in my mind and reaction was, i don't even know who this woman is. >> reporter: and cain went on to say that bialek was a product of a democratic smear campaign. >> now, the democrat machine in america has brought forth a troubled woman.
7:10 am
>> reporter: and of course, last week, cain blamed the rival campaign of governor rick perry. >> we've been able the trace it back to the perry campaign. that stirred this up in order to discredit me. >> reporter: the larger question, of course, is what do the allegations, if true, say about a candidate for president? >> sexual harassment is a power move. it is a demonstration that you are more powerful and you are if you will, superior to the person that you are harassing. >> reporter: overnight, the associated press reported that kraushaar had another complaint with another employer four years after leaving the restaurant association, alleging unfair treatment on the job after she was injured in a car accident. now, she and bialek say they want to hold a joint appearance with the other two accusers so they can all tell the stories of herman cain, with the safety in numbers. that would be quite a dramatic moment. >> it certainly would. >> thanks very much. let's get more on this now from
7:11 am
republican strategist, mary matalin. thanks for joining us this morning. i know you believe that herman cain gave a powerful press conference yesterday. enough to put this to rest? >> if he stays unequivocal and he stays as nondefensive about it, but he needs to quit being an operative. he needs to quit casting blame and ascribing motives to opponents, either democrats or republicans. but his denial, i thought was powerful and believable. what you can get out of the bubble, it's helpful to transport yourself to a kitchen table in central iowa. and you're looking at a life where the cost of everything has gone up. and the value of everything has gone down. no fault of your own. what's happening to mi country. and you see the candidacy of this guy, who is not a politician who epitomizes everything about america. and then you start discounting in the way voters do, not pundits do, which is the media is sensationalist, and/or biased. >> i think you are right that the people would rather have the campaign focus on other things. but this is front and center right now. and cain was so unequivocal
7:12 am
yesterday. but to believe him, you have to believe that all four accusers are lying. can you hold that line even if they all go public? >> well, he's been accused of -- here's the accusations. one said she was repulsed because he said you're as tall as my wife. one said she was repulsed because he had dinner with two of them. they had to pick up the wine. no advances were made. and the really truly repulsive, if it's true, but clearly does not fit a pattern of his life. and it doesn't comport what we know about his life. so, it's a little bit different than a he said/she said. and people do, i'm not condoning harassment. i don't want to get ridiculous e-mails. but we went through a period of this grievance industry, of feminists who want to be offended find a way to be offended.
7:13 am
and there's not a lot of charges other than the one that he flatly denies that come close to being assault or harassment. >> we know there were two agreements. you also saw yesterday, both mitt romney and newt gingrich come out a little further than they had before and say that herman cain has to address these. these are serious. romney called them disturbing. they are trying to create some space there. >> when prompted, what cain said about romney, he gave romney kudos for integrity. and credited him for saying, yes, harassment and assault is horrible. and saying that herman cain has to answer to these, and he did answer to them, i don't think he could have answered it anymore powerfully. now he needs to continue be unequivocal. quit being an operative. get to iowa. he has a new spot up today. and keep talking to voters where their sweet spot is. and this is not where their sweet spot is. >> he's not out of this? >> i don't think by a long shot. >> okay. mary matalin, thanks very much. now, let's go to josh elliott with the news.
7:14 am
>> good morning to both of you and to all of you. we're going to begin with wall street. stocks are dropping sharply in early trading today, and once again, the cause can be found in europe. there are mounting fears that italy stands on the brink of default, even though the prime minister berlusconi said he will resign. raising turn among invest efforts, italy will need some kind of bailout, unlike greece, portugal and ireland, italy's debt is considered to large for her nations to cover. and some disturbing news about the treatment of u.s. service members killed in a battle. three officials at dover air force base have been disciplined for mishandling remains. in at least two cases, body parts were lost. in another case, a fallen marine was dismembered to fit into his uniform.
7:15 am
this morning, an investigation faults the air force for not taking full responsibility. also, a big victory for labor union, voters in ohio, have overturned a law that limited the collective bargaining rights of public workers. and finally, in san diego, preparations under way to turn the deck of a usair craft carrier into a babble arena. take a look. they're sweeping the flight deck, putting up stands of the "uss carl vinson." it will be part of espn's veterans day coverage. along with my partner, hannah storm, i had the pleasure of being part of. it will be a wonderful day, spectators will also include president obama. >> they have plain fs it rains -- >> they are in place, san diego.
7:16 am
>> let's hope not. welcome back from nashville. >> thank you. and we're going to show you how nashville stays dry for the cma awards tonight. let's show you where the rainmaker is in the middle of the country. all of the way from new orleans, well up into the great lakes. the punch of the storm is around the low here. you can see the snow in the back. some places in iowa getting up to six inches of snow. here -- here's who gets the rain today. as we watch it go all the way up. i don't know. i wasn't working yet. detroit, travers city, chicagoland, indianapolis, cincinnati, all getting heavy rain today. louisville, as well. nashville, you will probably get your rain early in the morning but not in the later day hours. colombia, about 73. ahead of that front it is nice and warm in new york city at 66. orlando at 81.
7:17 am
>> and, yes, indeed, san diego, notoriously one of the driest places in the country. nice and mild today and expected to be that way for the next couple days. >> and the weekend. all right. sam, thank you.
7:18 am
now, to the breaking report that a private investigator working for rupert murdoch, "news of the world," was spying on prince william. abc's nick watt has been tracking, has the latest from london. good morning, nick. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, we all know that journalists will stoop pretty low for a scandal or a scoop. but this morning, a new low. some royals and celebrities were being watched. and they had no idea. this is derek webb, retired cop, paid by "the news of the world" newspaper, to tail and spy on prince william. logging where he went, who he met, what he was wearing. undetected by royal security. >> they had no idea. that proves my expertise in relation to it, that they was not aware they were being followed. and this happened on quite a few occasions. >> reporter: webb worked for the paper for years. apparently tailing targets including angelina jolie, simon
7:19 am
cowell, paul mccartney, and bizarrely, harry potter contaac dan yat radcliff's parts. he often took orders from the paper's royal editor. >> he would tell me to go to the airport and follow chelsy davy, who was prince harry's girlfriend. and follow her to where she was going. >> reporter: that royal editor has served time for hacking the voicemails of royal staff. and last summer, the paper owned by rupert murdoch's news international, shocked in the scandal. investigators have hacked voice mails of politicians, movie star, murder victims and allegedly kate and her family. but what webb did, this is his actual surveillance footage of a well-known soccer player. this is not illegal in prison. >> but the list of people i've seen, i would find it incredibly difficult to justify, you know, what were they looking at simon cowell for? >> reporter: though spying on royalty is not illegal.
7:20 am
but certainly disconcerting for those who were secretly tailed. and that investigator has told the bbc, quote, i don't feel ashamed. if i wasn't doing it, somebody else would be. now, tomorrow, rupert murdoch's son, james, comes before a british government committee to talk about the phone hacking and, guy, he will face a grilling on this spying as well. >> not over yet. >> sure did last time. >> nick, thanks. coming up, the gripping moments from inside the jury room during the trial of conrad murray. the first jackson juror breaks her silence. a "gma" exclusive. and dan and nancy weigh in, as well. and the latest on the bieber baby scandal. why he's fueling the fight over whether he is a dad. and this restaurant owner right here is about to get the surprise of his life when our live "show me the money" team will reveal how much money he never knew he had. plus, how mariah carey got her body back after having twins. the exclusive photos just ahead.

7:31 am
leamy. our live "show me the money" team. they have a van now. they have a fat check. going to give it to that restaurant owner. he has no idea how much money he's getting this morning. >> that big check should be a clue. let's get right to the abc news exclusive, inside the jury room of the conrad murray trial. the first juror to speak out sat down with jim avila. and he joins us now. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, george. behind the closed doors of the jury room and inside those secret deliberations for the first time, the first conrad murray juror tells "gma," that, in fact, the trial was long. the jury was split at the beginning. and the nine hours of deliberations were not easy. >> i think we really did our job. >> reporter: she is juror number five, debbie franklin, the 48 mother of two, a paralegal, put in charge of ringing the buzzer, to tell the judge and the world a verdict had been reached. >> our hearts were pounding to go out there. >> reporter: franklin is the first and only juror to reveal
7:32 am
what went on inside the jury room. in our exclusive interview, she says while nearly all the jurors had decided on guilt during the first day of deliberations, not everyone was convinced that dr. murray was solely responsible for michael jackson's death. >> towards the end of the day, we finally took a vote. it was not unanimous. and we talked a little more about it. let's think about it over the weekend. it was stressful. we did -- yelling and we had to keep saying, nobody talk while this person is talking. raise your hand if you have something to say. >> reporter: it was not until monday morning that the majority was able to convince everyone, that not only was conrad murray negligent, his mistakes led directly to the death of michael jackson. do you think that michael jackson would be alive today if it were not for the mistakes of conrad murray? >> yes. absolutely. he had addictions. he asked other doctors to do it. they said no. he was looking for somebody to say yes. and conrad murray said yes.
7:33 am
>> reporter: juror number five said dr. murray is responsible for killing jackson for three reasons. not calling 911. not having medical backup equipment in the room. and leaving his patient alone. >> when he came back, conrad murray said he was alive. he wasn't breathing. but he had a pulse. he had the monitor on his finger. at that point, he was alive, according to conrad murray. if he would have had the medical equipment there, if it was the airway that was blocked, he had nothing. >> reporter: and while the jury thought conrad murray was a nice guy that didn't mean to kill michael jackson, they decided he as a doctor should have known better and found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter. was it a show of hands vote? >> it was a show of hands at that point. and we asked everybody to write it down. we actually had the written paper of 12 guilty votes. >> reporter: the jury was ushered out of the courtroom before the judge decided to send conrad murray directly to jail.
7:34 am
but this juror, at least, had no regrets, seeing the former doctor led off in handcuffs. >> i never gave it a second thought of what was happening back in the courtroom. but i saw later on tv, it didn't shock me. but i assumed that if somebody's found guilty they're taken right from the courtroom. i don't think he was going to say, go home. >> reporter: juror number five said she had no opinion on how long the sentence should be for conrad murray. she is a said she did her job. and said that she is glad sentencing is up to the judge. let's get more from our legal team, nancy grace and legal analyst dan abrams. nancy, i have to begin with you. the queen of multitasking. fascinating accounts from the juror right there. from what you heard, did the jury do their job well? >> they did. it sounds as if that there was a lot of -- let me just say -- heated discussion, to a point where they were raising their
7:35 am
hands to -- not to interrupt each other. and that lively discourse, has been discussed, is what you want in a jury room. and also, the fact they broke and they slept on it for a couple days over the weekend is a good thing. i don't think there's going to be any problem with, for instance, jury tampering, jury problems, jury misconduct, in an appeal, which is sure to come. >> i was amazed at how quickly they were able to reach a verdict, then. hearing her say they were this divided on friday. and they come back, and by midday, early in the day monday, they've been able to convince those people is pretty amazing. also, i was struck by the issue of cause of death. she seems to be saying, in effect, no matter why michael jackson became -- came to the situation he was in, meaning whether michael jackson injected it himself or it was dr. murray, the fact is, dr. murray still could have saved him. >> yeah. he could have survived.
7:36 am
>> i thought that was an interesting comment. >> nancy, now, we get to the issue of sentencing. juror number five says she has done her job. but the defense team will argue for probation only. >> if you look at the road sign that the judge has given us. he said point-blank at the time the verdict came in he said this is not a mistake in judgment. this ended in a death of a human being. that's a big sign to me that he's going to give jail time. of course, the maximum is only four years. so, given the prison overcrowding in not only california, but all across the country, it's going to turn into a nicole richie, paris hilton sort of thing, where conrad murray gets jail time by the judge. but state guidelines will let murray out early. we'll also see murray angling to stay in a county jail and not go into a state facility such as san quentin, where scott
7:37 am
peterson is. that way he can stay close to home and probably have more privileges. those privileges have already started because he's in the celebrity wing of the jail. basically, the medical unit. he'll probably get a private jail cell and special treatment. >> i don't know about that. but -- >> he's already there, dan. >> but the celebrity wing? you make it sound like it's nice and cushy there. the bottom line is -- >> have you ever been there? >> yeah, actually, i have. but not -- yeah. >> through tv, internet. >> the bottom line is that suggests already that somehow conrad murray -- >> probably watching you right now, dan. >> i'm sure he is. and he's already getting special treatment. it's a nice cliche. but really, i don't see anything to indicate that dr. murray is getting sort of beneficial treatment here. the reality is, that if he gets treated like everyone else, nancy's going to go nuts, which is, if he is released because of overcrowding, the same way that everyone else is --
7:38 am
>> he will. >> he will. he will. >> dan, here's the deal. you know what g.p., general population is like. they probably like michael jackson tunes. and they probably would not like the guy that killed michael jackson. so, he's getting special treatment right now by being in a medical unit. you get your meals are delivered differently. your meals can even be different from everyone else's. you're not in general population. you got it good. it's already starting for conrad murray. >> the fact they're protecting him from getting harmed in prison means he's getting special treatment. is that what you're saying? >> i didn't say he's going to get harmed. i say he's getting special treatment. it's not an issue, dan. i'm going to agree with you. it's a revolving door, due to overcrowding. the judge could sentence him to four years. but that's going to be superseded by the fact that he can't stay there due to overcrowding. i think this is a violent crime. but i don't think they're going to agree with me.
7:39 am
>> i don't think he'll get four years, either. i think he'll get a lesser sentence. >> and he's already gotten a payday. he's gotten up to $500,000 for the documentary. >> i've got to say two things. first of all, nancy grace, congratulations. you are awesome, all right? you are absolutely awesome. >> thank you. >> the cartwheel the other night. >> dan, abrams. i should teach you to do a cartwheel. >> if you can teach me -- >> okay. that's our next segment. nancy is going cartwheels right here in times square. sam, are you going to join them? >> no. i will not join them. but i will say this. my friend, nancy grace, looks as good as she did 20 years ago. fantastic. nancy, you look beautiful. it's such a pleasure to see you. i can't wait to see you in person. >> thank you, sam. >> one or two things going on we want to talk about. as we show you, a low pressure

we can wage a war on two fronts, sir. do you understand? >> you can go, now, mr. hoover. >> boy. they didn't like each other. >> not at all. >> who didn't show him -- with the kennedys, with the roosevelt, with nixon? he really tried to use the secrets he collected to hold power over presidents. >> he had files on a lot of people. and there was great curiosity about these files. in fact, even after he passed away, the congressional committees were interrogating helen gandy to find out what happened. >> his long-time secretary. >> right. his long-time secretary. and why she had destroyed the files and nobody ever will know. he was a man of mystery. >> a man obsessed with secrecy. and another way to look at the film, it's almost like a series of interlocking love stories.
8:34 am
>> it's absolutely beautiful, mother. >> with his mother. with helen gandy, the secretary of 40 years. with hoover, with clyde tolson, his assistant. and he had a few relationships that lasted his whole life. >> he probably didn't trust a lot of people. but those people, he did have a way of instilling loyalty in people. and tolson became his inseparable pal. >> i know you say you're sort of agnostic as whether or not it's a gay relationship between tolson and hoover. but it's so clear they were the most important person in each other's lives. >> well, he might have been. they might have -- he might have been. i'm agnostic about it only in the sense that i don't really know. and nobody really, really knew. but it was definitely a love story. obviously, you can love a person. and whether it goes into the realm of being gay or not, neither here nor there, as far
8:35 am
as i'm concerned. >> it's clear that hoover, in the film, is a man who loves his country. but it's hard to determine whether believing he was good or bad for the country. >> i believe he probably was good for the country. now, whether he became obsolete at some point in his life or wasn't keeping up with changes as fast as they were coming down, we don't know. >> let them know that i have a copy of my own in safekeeping. >> reporter: leo dicaprio was here, talking to robin. and he said one of the things he loved about working with you is if you don't like something, you just say so. >> that's true. >> did you say it that much to leo? >> no. he's a terrific -- very diligent actor. and he tried very hard to me as much as he could about hoover and get a great impression that he could pass on through this interpretation. >> you're with your bureau seven years. and that bureau is now gone, sir. and so are you. >> now that i have you here, i have to ask you, a few weeks back. james baker, former secretary of

state, campaign manager for george bush back in 1988. he gave an interview to the george bush library. he said back in 1988, bush was 18 points behind. michael dukakis and he actually had discussions about asking you to be on the ticket for vice president. did you know about that? >> no, i didn't. >> what would you have done if they came to you? >> i would have said i want to be the first part of the ticket. why would i want to play a supporting role? >> only the lead. >> only the lead. >> one final question. i know you supported john mccain last time around. do you have a candidate yet? >> i have to wait and see. a lot of good people want the job. i don't know why, particularly. but that's just my own opinion. >> you said you wanted it. >> well, yeah. i've changed my mind sense. >> i get it. the movie is fantastic. it is powerful. "j. edgar." thanks very much. >> thank you, george. thanks for having me.
8:37 am
>> a terrific guy. and "j. edgar" opens this week. now, let's go to sam and the weather. >> good morning, everybody. we're live in times square at the patch, at broadway farms. pumpkinpalooza is coming up. you have to have a canon. you have to have a pumpkin canon like we do in texas, for pumpkinpalooza. we can fire these things straight down broadway. it's probably not safe. let's get to the boards. one or two things going on we want to talk about. we'll start with our twitter pictures. there is a great fog bank. my boss said there's a great fog bank developing around the g.w. bridge. we didn't get a picture of it. so, we'll just show you this. oregon, lowell, mass. our beautiful twitter pictures. that's the boston, maine, the old train that goes through lowell, mass, there. so, oklahoma city, dallas, san antonio, you're in better shape today than you were yesterday. the storms have moved out. but you're dropping by about 15 degrees. it's cooler and drier. milder down in the southwest, where it hasn't been comfortable yet.
8:38 am
but we start the warmup around 76 degrees. it's nice all the way until friday. earlier in the show, we showed you they were setting up a football game on top of -- basketball game. sports. on top of a ship out there. >> all that weather was brought to you by hallmark. coming up, a brand-new way you can stay in touch with us 24 hours. you don't sleep, we don't sleepg we'll talk to you anytime. and pumpkikikikikikikikikikp

8:41 am
today is a big day for us here at "good morning america." we'll get to the specifics in just a moment. but we're doing having very cool with google and their new social media platform, google plus. what is google plus?
8:42 am
who else to explain that better than our own tech contributor, becky worley, who joins us this morning via skype. and good morning to you, becky. >> good morning, josh. good morning, everyone at home. i know what you're thinking. another social media site? do i have to go to one more site to check in with my friends? well, let me tell you something. this one is from google. when google goes for something, they go big. a while back, you joined myspace. you switched to facebook. you reluctantly added a twitter account. you share pictures on tumbler, flickr. maybe you also skype with your family. so, why would you need another media tool? the folks at google are trying to answer that. >> google plus is a great way to share with the people who matter in your life. >> like other sites, you post pictures, links, random videos. who knew google had a slide at their headquarters? i like that.
8:43 am
but what's different is when it comes to the people you want to keep up with, as you join, you categorize them, right away, into circles. >> family circles. co-worker circles. college buddy circles. >> reporter: you want to find out what's up with old friends? one click and that's all you'll see. maybe the guys you play hoops with. parents from your kids' class. you can isolate their news, too. so, when you post something, you're actively choosing who to share it with. friends and family? sure. maybe there's some things you don't want your work people to see. google plus has a few other cool features. notably, live video hangouts. hi, josh. >> oh. hi, guys. how is your day out there on the other side of the country? >> reporter: these can be as simple as video chatting with a friend. or maybe a group of friends. >> are we on? >> we're on. >> reporter: so, if you're up for something new, go over and check out google plus. you might find some friends there already.
8:44 am
your favorite tech reporter. and maybe even your favorite morning show. now, let me be clear. the beauty of this social network is that you can be very selective about what you share with whom. so, yeah, josh. i've got you in my circle. but we're going to have to hang out more if you want to be in the inner circle. >> wow. look at that. i have to work my way in concentrically. i do appreciate that. now, becky, this is relatively new. but it already has 40 million-plus users? >> it's really taken off in the tech community. it's a way to follow press, any of the shows you like. and people that you want to stay close with and just selectively choose -- it may not replace facebook. but it's definitely got things to offer that are different. >> definitely gotten to the watering hole, if nothing else. you can join me and becky on
8:45 am
google plus right after the show today. we're going to hang out live, 9:30 a.m. "good morning america's" brand-new page. we'll be answering questions. however personal or maybe we might be avoiding some of those. thank you, becky. >> pleasure. and coming right up, spice up your thanksgiving. pumpkinpalooza, in the patch of broadway farms. that's next.or

8:50 am
we have a lot to do today. >> let's skip to it. >> we're going to put this in the waffle maker. it looks a little bit thick. >> it sure does. >> but it's very light and airy, once you're done. >> look. >> isn't that perfect? >> smells so good. >> we're going to serve this with ancho honey butter and some fried chicken. and some pumpkin sage cheese bread. >> bring it on, sister. >> to me, grits are like a blank canvas. >> absolutely. >> i put all kinds of things on them. >> the ultimate comfort food. >> they are. i'm a grits girl. >> me, too. >> now, you've add your grits. a little bit of sage. a little bit of pumpkin and cheese in there. >> any tricks to making great grits? >> one trick. be very -- either a double-boiler or a very low heat because you don't want to scorch them on the bottom. >> okay. >> so, we've had our meal. now, we're going to eat dessert, right? >> right. >> i have a dessert that you will not believe.
8:51 am

8:52 am
we have to move quickly to get through it all. is there anything we need to know about cooking with pumpkin for the holidays? i know sometimes, robin feels you can go a little overboard with the spice and the pumpkin. >> if you feel it's too much spice, pull a little off. >> have i had a pie yet? >> you've had a quarter of a pie. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. it's great to be here. >> are we feeling thanksgiving? all right. great. for the recipes go to our website, on yahoo! i'm going to chug this pie. we'll be right back. cheers. ♪
