7:07 am
temperatures. they drop more than 25 to 30 degrees, a high on wednesday, denver, snow and 33, 50 in salt lake, 47, garden city, some 6 inches of snow in denver proper, some places in the mountains may see up to a foot good monday morning to you. well, the fog has returned, and it's going to cool us off substantially. taking your temperatures down by 10 to 15 degrees in most cities from where we ended up yesterday. you'll hit about 70 today. in san francisco, 80. in redwood city, 80. much cooler. we continue to stay warm, and then we get dry and breezy tonight through wednesday. hope you have a great day. your latest weather. matt? >> al, thank you very much. let's turn to politics now. after a series of foreign policy victories, president obama is hitting the road to sell his plan to help turn around the
7:08 am
struggling economy, and today the focus is on the housing market. chuck todd is nbc's political director and of course chief white house correspondent. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. >> the plan the president's going to unveil today is aimed at people who are struggling with their mortgages, in particular, people who are under water. it says it will make it easier for them to refinance those mortgages. already critics say it won't work. what are you hearing about the plan? >> it's similar to the plan the president unveiled over two years ago, and he did so on another west coast swing when he did it. on its face, this plan that the president's going to unveil might help another 1 million folks whose mortgages are so-called under water. the problem with the plan initially and with this one, matt, you cannot force the banks to do this. while they can raise the threshold and say even if you owe more than your house is worth, even if you owe 150% more than your house is worth, we
7:09 am
cannot force the banks to refinance. and that's been the problem with this program. >> even though you can't force the banks to do it, if you're sitting at home underwater in your mortgage and you hear it coming out of the president's mouth and you're in a state like nevada or arizona or california or florida -- and those aren't accident states -- is this going to help politically? >> it could. they would like to do two things with this plan, one, emphasize the fact they can't do anything through congress. the president is forced to act on his own. this is pivoting from the jobs about. the second thing is last week the republican front-runner mitt romney said of the housing crisis, you know what, we're not allowing foreclosures to happen fast enough. so this is a twofer as far as the who is is concerned. they feel like they can talk about housing but also make the republicans look like they're out of touch. >> you talk about mitt romney. how much pressure is on him right now? because this week we're going to hear from rick perry. he's going to unveil his
7:10 am
flat-tax proposal on the heels of herman cain's 9-9-9. whether you agree with those plans, they're simple, people can unction them, and they sound big. so how much pressure on romney to come up with something similar? >> a lot of pressure. what is popular about herman cain and now with rick perry is getting rid of the tax code. that's what both plans are doing. mitt romney's plan, the 59-point that he talked about that herman cain mocked at a debate, tinkers with the tax code, talks about extending the bush tax cuts. if you're extending them, you're keeping the tax code. what is popular inside the republican party, get rid of the million-word mess that is the u.s. tax code. romney's not doing it, he's going to feel pressure to do something more radical. >> on friday, the president announced health pull all u.s. troops out of iraq by the end of the year, fulfilling ing ing a
7:11 am
he made back in 2008. already republicans are criticizing this thing. it's more about politics than sound military strategy. how exposed is the president on this? >> i don't think he's very exposed at all because public opinion is with him when it comes to the military conflicts in iraq and afghanistan. they would like to see these troops brought home. and what's the alternative? you know, you talk to the obama campaign and they say, okay, mitt romney criticized the president for doing this, so d does that mean a president romney wants to send more troops back to iraq? they think politically that that's a more untenable position to have at this point. >> chuck todd in washington. chuck, as always, thanks very much. >> you got it, sir. 11 after the hour. here's savannah. >> matt, thank you. dramatic new twists this morning tried to the disappearance of 11-month-old lisa irwin. peter alexander is in kansas city this morning where he was given a tour of the irwin family home. peter, good morning to you.
7:12 am
>> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. it's been exactly three weeks to the day since jeremy bradley and deborah said their baby disappeared from inside her crib, inside this home. the first chance to see court documents that an fbi ska davr dog had a positive hit on a smell of a dead body inside the home. overnight the irwin family allowed us in the home, they insist they have done nothing wrong and have nothing to hide. ♪ amazing grace >> reporter: sunday night, baby lisa's parents, deborah bradley and jeremy irwin, returned to the home where they say their daughter disappeared for a candlelight vigil. neither deborah nor jeremy said a word, but they were both in tears as jeremy's father, lisa's grandfather, offered an devotional prayer. >> please keep her safe and bring her home to us as soon as possible. >> reporter: after the vigil, the irwin family invited nbc news inside the home. this is baby lisa's bedroom that you've heard so much about, one
7:13 am
of the first things you notice is the spot on the light switch where police were trying to find fingerprints, this way the small frames, hand and footprints from the day little lisa was born, her clothes still hanging in the closet, the scooby-doo onesie see liked to wear and they believe this is where she was taken from that night, an ominous reminder of what they say happened here, the graphite from the fingerprinting process by police. this is the window where they suspect the abductor came inside the home. the screen was pushed in like this. this was a family room or a computer room. if it was an abduction, this right here on the counter is exactly where the family says the three cell phones were missing. deborah and jeremy believe the abductor would have come into the hallway, passing by where lisa's brothers sleep, one was asleep that night, coming into her bedroom, with her crib,
7:14 am
walking down this hallway, and they would have come in this direction with the baby in their arms. the front door that jeremy found unlocked that morning at 3:45 a.m., where you can see police tried to find new fingerprints. this newly filed police affidavit is revealing dramatic new findings in the baffling three-week-old mystery. last week an fbi cadaver dog smelled the scent of a human corpse somewhere here on the floor right near the bed. >> human decomposition usually starts within four minutes after biological death. it's going to be within minutes that a dog should be able to find that scent, if it actually existed. >> reporter: according to the affidavit, deborah told investigators she didn't initially look for lisa behind the house because she was afraid of what she might find. last week investigators spent nearly 17 hours executing a search warrant inside the home. the new court documents also detail exactly what detectives collected, a comforter, a disney character shirt, a glow-worm
7:15 am
toy, as well as rolls of tape and a tape dispenser. and left behind inside the kitchen, this empty box of wine that deborah admits she drank enough to get drunk on the night she says her daughter vanished. deborah was seen buying that box of wine on surveillance video, hours before she said she put lisa to bed. meanwhile, police have also revied this new surveillance video taken from a gas station less than a mile away from the irwin home at 2:00 a.m. the knightley is a vanished. it shows the blurry image of a person walking out of a wooded area. at least three witnesses including this neighbor who lives only doors away from the irwins say they've spoken to investigators about a suspicious man they saw in the area that night. what exactly did you see that night? >> we seen a gentleman walking up the street, 12:15, carrying a baby. >> reporter: a baby in his arms? >> a baby in his arms. >> was the baby wearing anything? >> no, at that time from what we saw, the baby was just wearing a
7:16 am
diaper it looked like, it appeared. >> reporter: what did you think? >> it was odd. >> reporter: i spoke to kansas city police late last night and they said they will not discuss specific details of this case but acknowledge they have no suspects, no strong leads and they are still open to investigating every scenario. savannah? >> all right, peter alexander in kansas city, thank you. attorney joe tacopina is representing lisa's parents, deborah bradley and jeremy irwin. mr. tacopina, good morning to you. let's start with the issue of the cadaver dog getting a hit right by the mother's bed. how do you explain that? >> you know, it's really a red herring, savannah. i've consulted with one of the top experts, foremost experts in detection dogs withh the federa government and law enforcement all the time, and while he's a proponent of the dogs, the dogs are investigatory by nature, not evidentiary. these are not things you bring someone to justice with. more importantly what he told me and i heard from one of your
7:17 am
experts in that clip is what a cadaver looks for, smells for is decomposition of human remains, and decomposition of human remains is when they say they discovered a dead body or scent of a dead body, that's what they're smelling, the decomposition of human remains. what that could be aside from a body and skin peeling t could be fecal matter and fecal matter is often found in the diaper of a 10-month-old baby. it could be toenails you clip on your bed and hit the rug or something. that is decomposition of human matter. it could be one of many, many things. i'll note that you saw the walk-through you guys did yesterday, they didn't clip any of that rug or carpeting in that bedroom. >> let's move on to another item came out of the affidavit filed in connection with the search warrant. lisa irwin did not look behind her home because she was afraid of what she might find. from one standpoint you could understand emotionally why she
7:18 am
would feel that way but could you also understand it might arouse suspicious if she's desperately looking for her child why she wouldn't look behind the home? >> no, she didn't say. see, this is where -- what you don't have there is a sworn statement. that's a rendition of some investigator. what deborah bradley was doing when they called 911 was in a heap on the floor of the house trembling uncontrollably because of the disappearance of her daughter and what she said was she was afraid to go outside and look for anything. she was afraid what she would find. because she was trembling and afraid. she didn't say she didn't want to look behind the house. even if you wanted to attach some sinister motive to that comment, that wouldn't make sense, what, she'd kill the baby, put the baby behind the house and say i don't want to look, i'm afraid what i might find? instead of focusing on the salacious details is what i just heard and watershed stuff, this
7:19 am
is the stuff that investigations hopefully are made of, and what will break this case, you have three independent witnesses, not people who knew each other, not one person who could be mistaken, three independent witnesses who at one time or another after midnight, after 2:00 in the morning see a male, you know, with a frame that was small enough to go through that window carrying a baby in october with nothing on but a diaper. >> wow. >> if that doesn't raise all the red flags in the world, that's where this focus needs to be, and why, why three weeks later are we hearing about this for the first time? hopefully the leads are being followed up on. that's what i really am concerned about. we don't get sidetracked with the details. >> joe tacopina, thank you for your time. appreciate it. it's :19. here's matt. >> thanks. now to the hunt four a great white shark in australia that killed an american diver over the weekend, this is the third fatal attack there in the last two months. nbc's sarah james is in
7:20 am
melbourne with the details. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. in western australia the government announced it will have a private helicopter patrolling the coast, in the wake of an attack of a great white who killed american diver thomas wright. >> there will be a helicopter off the beaches tomorrow, a temporary arrangement until surf life savings arrives in november. >> reporter: after the third fatal shark attack off western australia in a matter of weeks the state premier ordered fisheries to hunt and kill a great white. this shark seen in the area shortly after the attack could be the very one who killed thomas wainwright. he had come to texas to work in oceaneering. >> people don't realize they're trying to fly something around the size of a car. >> reporter: seen here in this
7:21 am
corporate video from his previous job with bp oil company, wainwright explains how he worked with rovs to help cap the well at the heart of the april 2010 oil spill in the gulf of mexico. >> growing up where i did and i spent a lot of time enjoying the gulf, and to be able to know we're going to get that under control and get things cleaned up and back to, you know, some resemblance of normal. >> reporter: wainwright originally hailed from the florida panhandle, and his sisters say he was a man with a passion for life and for the ocean, who also adored australia. >> the day before he sent us an e-mail about coming over to australia for christmas. >> reporter: on saturday, wainwright and two american friends had taken a boat to a picturesque island just offshore from the city of perth. he was scuba diving when the shark struck. >> the whole reason we're talking to people so everyone knows there's a lot more to this than just a victim of a shark attack, that he was a person with a family that cared a lot
7:22 am
about him. >> reporter: some in western australia fear there could be one devastating predator responsible for three deadly attacks, but scientists say it's more likely there were three separate sharks, all trailing the whales now migrating through the area. wainwright's family says catching or killing the shark won't bring back thomas. >> it was just the wrong place at the wrong time. >> reporter: authorities here say they're doing everything they can to try to prevent another attack like this one. matt? >> all right, sara james in melbourne, australia for us this morning, thank you very much. just ahead, prince harry out and about in california and reportedly spending time with a cocktail waitress there. we're going to hear from her, but first this is "today" on nbc.

7:31 am
made in a new book by her daughter. alexis stewart speaks out in a live interview about that. we are going to begin with the latest on the trial of michael jackson's doctor. attorneys for conrad murray are expected to begin making their case today, and nbc's jeff rossen is in los angeles again for us this morning. jeff, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, savannah, good morning to you. just to give you an idea how different the theories are about how michael jackson died in his mansion back in 2009, dr. conrad murray says he gave michael jackson 25 grams of propofol. in a syringe this size, it would be filled to right here. the prosecution's expert now says that's not true. he did the math and dr. murray gave michael jackson 40 times more propofol than that, this much, and you can see the difference in sizes, obviously. this morning we have exclusive, new details how murray's defense team will try to keep him out of jail. dr. conrad murray has spent weeks listening to prosecutors blast him. >> that misplaced trust in the
7:32 am
hands of conrad murray cost michael jackson his life. >> reporter: now, it's the doctor's turn. sources close to the case tell nbc news murray's lawyers have developed a new time line, and they'll lay it out for the jury this week. ♪ don't stop 'til you get enough ♪ >> reporter: 1:00 a.m., michael arrives home from rehearsal, takes a shower and a valium. 2:00 a.m., dr. murray gives michael two milligrams of the anti-anxiety drug lorazepam, 3:15 a.m. michael falls asleep but by 3:30 he's awake again. 5:00 a.m., dr. murray gives michael another two milligrams of lorazepam, but the singer can't sleep. between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., jackson becomes agitated, panicked, that if he condition sleep they'll have to cancel that day's rehearsal, putting that entire day's show and the day's paycheck in jeopardy.
7:33 am
it's in the window, 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. where murray's lawyers will claim michael enters his private bedroom where no one is allowed and swallows eight pills of lorazepam, never telling dr. murray. 10:40 a.m., dr. murray gives jackson 25 milligrams of propofol, experts say a low dosage. 11:00 a.m., michael is sleeping comfortably and dr. murray makes phone calls to his office and his girlfriends. murray claims michael wakes up when he isn't looking and injects himself with propofol. 11:15 a.m. dr. murray notices michael jackson has stopped breathing. >> it seems the defense has a tough road ahead of them, but all they have to do is pick up enough fans and hopefully something sticks with some jurors that creates reasonable doubt. >> reporter: murray's defense team plans to call at least 15 witnesses and in court this week will argue what they told me at the start of the trial, that michael jackson essentially killed himself. >> this was a gentleman who couldn't sleep at night, period. >> reporter: your contention is he would have done anything,
7:34 am
including giving himself propofol and lorazepam included. >> he would have done anything to get the sleep he needed. >> reporter: breaking news in this case overnight. janet jackson has canceled several concerts in australia this week to be at the l.a. courthouse with her family. janet released a statement overnight saying after talking with my family last night, i decided we must be together. savannah? >> nbc's jeff rossen in los angeles, thank you. star jones, former commentator and prosecutor, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's talk about the new defense theory jeff rossen laid out, the time line. they're arguing michael jackson took it upon himself to walk into that private bedroom, take eight lorazepam unbenoeknownst liz doctor, conrad murray. they don't have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. don't they have to offer some evidence of this? they can't just make allegations and put no proof forward?
7:35 am
>> can i remind you what's sitting here with me and hearing that in the casey anthony case that there was some sort of child molestation? they made allegations without any proof whatsoever. she's at home right now, okay, and that's the kind of thing that a jury will look to. if they don't want to "ruin" this man's life, conrad murray could get the benefit of beyond reasonable doubt. >> at the same time, prosecutors very effectively have used conrad murray's own words. >> absolutely. >> the statement he gave to police, and prosecutors are making the argument even if you just take conrad murray at his word we've established gross negligence. >> yes. they're saying, the prosecution is saying, we don't believe anything that he says, and because of that, he's guilty. then they're also saying if you believe everything that he says, because of that, he's guilty. >> this is a pretty steep hole that the defense now has to climb out of. they are going to put on their own expert, forensic expert, to counter the experts we've heard
7:36 am
now from the prosecution, most of whom seemed very effective in court. is it possible the jurors just kind of throw their hands up and dueling experts and they cancel each other out? >> the battle of the experts sort of ends with the jury tossing out the main central issue, which is the propofol. that's why dr. steinberg is going to become so, so important. he's the one who laid out the six elementins that could make gross negligence in and of themselves, and of those six, five of them would find conrad murray guilty. that's what the prosecution is depending on. the defense very clearly just needs to do reasonable doubt when it comes to cause of death. that's where they're going. >> and to that end the defense was actually severely limited by the judge before trial in terms of what it could put on for evidence of his former addiction, and his financial pressures. at the same time, evidence has come in that michael jackson had some kind of addiction problem. do you think jurors may find, you know, we'll never know what really happened here and that
7:37 am
that would be sufficient to have reasonable doubt? maybe michael jackson did take these drugs himself. >> the jury throws its hands up and says i just don't know, that's enough to find a defendant not guilty. the bigger problem for the defense is, their alternate theories that can get to guilt. if the juries are arguing over one aspect, the prosecution has another card to play, and they've played them all. it's very skillful. there's a hole they have to get out of. >> you stand by your position no way conrad murray takes the stand this week. >> absolutely not and you agree with me. >> just checking, keeping in touch on that one. star jones, thanks. we'll see you this week. now let's get a check of the weather from al. >> thanks so much, savannah. we've got some girl scouts from columbus, ohio, home of my brother-in-law, jackie bryant. good to see everybody there. you guys bring any cookies? >> sorry. >> oh! better for my diet. thanks for thinking of me. let's check your weather and show you the week ahead, above

diego this morning to explain. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. prince harry is here in the states for apache helicopter pilot training but spending some of his free weekends here in san diego and in the company of a certain young woman who disputes they are anything more than friends. she's the 26-year-old california cocktail waitress who was spotted with one of the world's most eligible bachelors. but jessica donaldson tells a london tabloid she and prince harry never even locked lips saying the angle of the photos on rumorfix is deceiving. donaldson with her dimples and long dark hair bears a striking resemblance to harry's sister-in-law kate middleton, minus the giant midriff tattoo, of course. she met the prince at the san diego nightclub where she works just after harry first arrived for helicopter pilot training at a remote southern california base. the two have been spotted together several times since.
7:51 am

8:12 am
been, it would have been more fun. she worked hard and was a perfectionist and i don't have a problem with that. >> you say it's not a tell-all. there's another quote that's gotten a lot of attention, "there was never anything to eat at my house," you write. "there were ingredients but no prepared food of any kind." you paint a portrait of you kind of having to forage for yourself. is that true? >> a little bit. my mother was a caterer and worked very hard. we were not wealthy and so there were ingredients, and was it ann annoying? yeah. did i get to go to my friend's house and eat junk food? sure. and i'm a great cook and guess what? there's no prepared food in my house. >> the next quote i have say shocker during this time of year, halloween. we had martha with the cutest halloween treats and you write "on halloween" when you were growing, "we turned off all of the lights, pretended we weren't home and my mother never had anything but apples and pennies to annoy the children with." can this be possibly true? >> of course, one or two years that was the case and it was super fun to turn off all the
8:13 am
lights and pretend we weren't home. she hand sewed me a giant bunny costume and liddious little bo beep costume. >> did that get mentioned in the booing? >> no. >> the last one, "my mother used to have my wrap my own presents on christmas, hand me things and say now wrap these but don't look inside but i didn't because i knew it was never worth looking." the larger issue is all of these quotes when you add them up, sounds like you're saying your mom is more about the image, that the reality didn't quite measure up to what the world sees. is that what you meant to say? >> not at all. i think the fact is, first of all it's not a book about my mother. it's a book about growing up and learning to live with what happened or what didn't happen, being comfortable with all of that. >> your mom was quite gracious about it. as we just showed she said go out and buy the book. i have to ask you as a daughter, you talk about your mother's bathroom habits in particular. >> i say she left the door open when she pee-ed.
8:14 am
>> did you worry about embarrassing her? >> no, everybody pis. some pee with the door closed. i grew up in a household you're not allowed to talk about the fact that people have to urin e urinate? >> the book can called "whateverland" and you call it a nonself-help book. >> we were doing a radio show and hear time and time again people, women specifically saying they didn't feel good about themselves, and they seemed to feel a little bit better when they'd hear we felt horrible about ourselves. >> so we're all terrible, just get used to it. >> kind of, just be okay with it, move on from it. it's not that you don't want to better yourself. we all want to be the best that we can be, but you don't have to be miserable or just think that there's nothing good about you while you're trying to accomplish more. >> we talk about martha and i think both of you, your father, gejennifer was an executive at martha stewart's company, you're her daughter. your careers have largely been derived from her success. do you think even if you were --
8:15 am
it shall. >> in all fairness, both of us have had other work even before we started doing the radio show. i'm a lawyer, and a notary, which is really convenient, and alexis had gyms and hotel so we've done other things and we ended up doing that. >> my friends have bought this book and they're like where's the dirt? there is none. >> let me ask you about something. you, too, were very good friends. you hosted the show together and as we learn at the end of the book you've broken up, those are your words. >> yes. >> what happened? >> things don't always, six years is a long time, for anybody. we were together every day for six years, doing a radio show two hours a day and sort of ends up being a little bit like a marriage and not all marriages last forever. >> i don't know if i'm projecting but i felt tension when you sat down together. has it been a while since you've been in each other's presence. >> it's because we're on television and not accustomed to it. >> friendships don't have to
8:16 am
fall apart, although alexis i couldn't help but notice one of the quotes in your book "i love getting rid of friends, it's so much fun." what'd you mean by that? >> if you want to punish somebody, never talking to them again is a really good method. >> did something happen or is this just a drifting apart? >> i think it's a drift. >> i think we're just different. >> well you are very different. that is apparent just from looking at the book. jennifer, do you hope this is a relationship that could be repaired? >> listen, i know alexis well enough to know that if things are not, if she doesn't want to be involved in the relationship anymore, then that's how it is and that's okay. i love her. it doesn't work. >> some people are clingy and some people like to be by themselves. >> i'm very clingy. >> doesn't make either person -- >> right. >> -- bad, just different. >> which is also in the book which is something that when i was single i wish i had learned from alexis, because girls typically if a guy doesn't like
8:17 am
us, we think there's something wrong with us. it shouldn't be that way, but it is, and really it's not that. it's just that you're not right for that person. so this was not a friendship that was going to last forever. >> okay, and last thing, you said in the book, alexis, that you think people who are super close to their families are completely bizarre. >> i do. >> we should assume from that you're not particularly close to your mom or are you? >> i'm very close to my mother but not a single other person in my family. >> you're bizarre only with regard to your mom in terms of super closeness. >> correct. >> okay. >> but i live next door to my sister, so we're all -- close. >> it is an interesting book. jennifer koppelman and alexis stewart, they'll come back in the next hour and answer viewer e-mails. send them in if you have a question, head to our website coming up next, ben stiller on his new action comedy "tower heist" right after this. t card.

9:08 am
and they did autopsies because that's what his dad did for a living and now he's a brilliant doctor, so if i put something like that, and you'd be twisting it into something horrible. >> did you warn your mom at all, hey this book is coming, some people might perceive it as dishing on you? >> all of the stories jennifer told them own the television show, the radio. they're funny. everyone has stories like this from their lives. everyone. >> nobody has the perfect childhood. >> nobody. >> let answer get to some of our viewer questions. the first one from mary. "alexis, do you hope that you will have the same relationship with your daughter that you had growing up with your mother? what would you do differently?" >> being older than my mother was, was a great help because i have much more life experience to look on. do i hope my daughter is close with me like i am with my mother, close. >> cheryl from arcadia, do you regret making public some of the less than flattering truths about your mother? >> i don't think they're less than flattering. they're -- >> just truths.
9:09 am
>> like everyone else, she's a human being, so am i, so is the lady who asked that question. >> did she see it coming. did martha know this was coming? >> as i said, these are stories that have been told over and over and over again. >> we talked last hour about how the two of you lafg hosted a show together for six years are no longer friends. >> it happens. >> deidre asked why write a book together if you're not friends? >> we wrote the book while we were still working together and maintaining a good friendship. things change. when we wrote the book everything in the book was -- >> and it doesn't invalidate the book. everything in the book -- here's the book. >> it's life lessons, listen it's life lessons. everybody's life has great moments of joy, and other moments of not such joy, and moments of awkwardness, and happiness and ease. so that's in the book and that's life. >> it's funny because just in the hours since we've talked, we've gotten tweets and people on facebook asking me about it because this is curious to them,
9:10 am
how it is you can be friends for a long time. >> i don't know, we -- >> and suddenly not. people think gosh someone must have happened. who sbins gaited the breakup. >> it's not ins gags thing. >> one day i look at your husband, not anymore. >> that's how she looked at me. >> are you sad? >> of course i'm okay. i have great friends, a full life and terrific husband. lovely kids. i mean, would i be friends with alexis still, of course. do i understand i'm not really her type in terms of a friend, sure so it's okay. >> so the larger question, this is an advice book above all things. >> sure. >> people are looking at you as dinse pencers of advice. what are they to make of this? >> that never happens to people, they fall out of lo of? >> no one else has ever been dumped? >> all of that is in the book. what do you do when you're dumped? >> you're saying this is real, this is life. >> we're saying we're okay. >> it's life and it can be funny
9:11 am
and sometimes horrible things are happening to me and i think this is going to make a good story. >> amy from ohio asks jennifer, you seem like a very sweet girl. how has your life changed now that you and alexis are not as close as you used to be? >> oh my goodness. >> it's exactly the same. >> listen, do i -- >> i'm answering for her, sorry. >> would i like to e-mail alexis what's going on with the baby, sure but i know that's not who alexis is and that's okay. it's about accepting who people are, what they want and don't want and i'm okay with that. i have lunch with my girl friends once a week. i do the radio show every day. alexis doesn't want to do it and we're okay. i still do it. >> you'd be friends with alexis if you could but alexis it doesn't go the other way. >> people are different. >> yeah. >> what are people to think of your relationship with your mother? i mean, i for example covered her court case and i know you were there almost every day. >> i was there every day actually. maybe you weren't there every day but i was. >> you were, so to your credit you were there every day. >> of course, why wouldn't i be? >> what's your relationship like? what would you want people to
9:12 am
know about your relationship? >> we're incredibly close. and we're fwoet veboth opiniona people. while we can be together having a nice time we can also have an animated discussion/argument about something, because that's normal. if we agree on everything how boring would that be? >> let me get back to something that touched a nerve with both of you when we talked about it last hour, i said a lot of your success or public image is derivative of martha stewart. >> right. that's true. >> the book has martha shot through it, the whole whatever thing. >> that's my life. should i not talk about it? >> if your parent is a plumber, you might go into the plumbing business. >> not only that but none of your faucets would work in your house. >> that is true. >> and there would be no prepared food in the refriger e refrigerat refrigerator. >> you have no misgivings of biting the hand that feeds. >> wait a minute not only did we not fwibite. we had a radio show for five and a half years.
9:13 am
today is the sixth anniversary of the show. the book came out of listening to women asking for help and women who seemed to be soothed by the fact that we have issues, tons and tons of issues and we're happy to share them. >> that leads me to good final point which what is the message that you hope people will take from this book? >> that you can either be really sad about all the horrible things that have happened to you. >> because you've had a the lo of horrible things happen to you? >> that's the whole thing the book is funny, taking everything and blowing it out of proportion as an example for how you can take your life and just laugh at it and then move on. >> okay, all right, jennifer and alexis, it's good to talk to you this morning. thanks for being here and reminder to everybody, the book is called "whateverland" and in stores now. appreciate it. coming up next, are we closer to a cure from risk factors to screening? we'll answer your questions about breast cancer. and later, when is a bargain not really a bargain? we'll help you avoid the money traps the next time you go shopping, but first these messages.

foundation >> susan and i used to be in love, we're still friends and we do check in on each other and very affectionate so i want you to know girl power exists. there's a future in girl power. >> thank goodness because we need girl power right now, talking about breast cancer, such an important issue and dr. love i think a lot of people, we know that the cure rates are getting better. we know that people are living longer with this disease, which is great news but you say still not good enough. >> it's not good enough because the treatments, surgery, radiation, chemo, hormones, targeted treatments all have side effects, they all have collateral damage and 40,000 women still die of breast cancer and so what we really need is to focus on finding the cause of breast cancer as opposed to the cure. i think when the nfl is wearing pink, we're aware. awareness is not the issue. the issue is what causes it and how can we stop it? and how can we refocus that, whether it's looking for a virus, finding a vaccine, or
9:18 am
what we're doing at the dr. susan love research foundation, focusing on the breast as opposed to the cancer. why does the breast get cancer and we really have no idea. >> we're going to talk about some of the research you're doing because it really is genius in how you look at the healthy woman and the breast in a moment. i want to get to a viewer question, dr. nancy, from karen in new york she writes "please report on what has been learned about breast cancer with all of the fund-raisers, are we any closer to a cure"? >> i've said many times we should think of getting cancer to a chronic illness stage. susan is saying we have to start looking at the cure you'll take your eye off the ball. we've made foe nominal progress on other illness, childhood leukemia. we know how to find things earlier but we have to remind ourselves that your breast cancer may not just be like my breast cancer and sometimes finding things earlier does not mean you're going to necessarily cure that. some breast cancers cure

themselves, some go away and some you could live with and not worry about. some unbleefblglunbelievablecy . >> dr. love tell me about the research you're doing on the actual breast on healthy women. >> we're focusing on finding every mutation and every cancer cell and that's sort of too late, like going to death row and asking them why they became criminals. we need to get to where it started, and believe it or not, for all the molecular biology, we still don't know how many holes there are in the nipple, we don't know what the breast does when it's not making milk. what does it concentrate, what does it absorb? we're the only animal besides domesticated nonspayed dogs that get breast cancer. we don't know, because we've never focused on that part of it. we focused on the cancer as if it comes from somewhere else.
9:20 am
>> fascinating. >> one of the cool things susan's done, we always talk about clinical trials. we put women into clinical trials once they've been diagnosed with a certain cancer. one of her big messages is we should be in trials when we're young and healthy, whether you have a family history or not, so we can follow 10, 20, 30, 40 years and try to figure out why was your life different than mine, how did you get cancer and why did i not? >> knowing the trajectory of the illness. nina in denver, colorado, on the phone with a great question, raises the issue we heard last week. go ahead nina. >> caller: the fertility clinic i went to told me i'd be at higher risk for breast cancer if my ivf treatments failed? >> let me flip this around and get susan's opinion. i said last week because there are so many women undergoing ivf, are you at risk for cancer. i said no because there's no data to show that is the case.
9:21 am
>> and that's true. there are a few studies, mostly very young women and they show no increased risk. but the other issue is, the older you are, when you get breast cancer, when you get pregnant, the higher your risk of getting breast cancer and what ivf allows is for much older women to get pregnant than ever before. and so we may be seeing an increase in breast cancer, not necessarily from the ivf, but from the fact that it's being given to women in their 40s and 50s. >> age is still the number one factor for getting breast cancer. >> age, obesity, radiation exposure, being younger at your first period, older at menopause, older at first pregnancy, all of these factors. sorry, we're out of time, we have to leave it there and we'll continue our discussion throughout the rest of the month. dr. susan love and dr. nancy snyderman, thank you, as always great stuff. two real housewives of beverly hills are stopping by, right after this. .. no wonder people want to share them with the ones they love.

this morning on "today's consumer" bargain hunting. we all want to save a few bucks but buying in bulk at dollar store finds aren't always the good deals they seem to be. personal finance expert varnoush is here. >> good morning, al. >> the big box stores, we think okay, we buy in bulk we save money. not necessarily. >> not necessarily. buying in bulk in general can save a family a lot of money over the course of a year but only if it makes sense. dry perishables, household supplies that don't have expiration dates necessarily, not going to expire quickly, those are really the best bets because we do waste a lot of the bulk purchases that are fruit, vegetables, meat, things like that. >> odds are, unless you package them individually and freeze
9:37 am
them. >> that's a great tip. freezing, investing in a good freezer is smart if you like to buy in bulk during the year. >> the one i always see, buy one get one free. >> check this out. you and i are almost conditioned to see the word "free" and assume there's no downside. marketers know this. whether they're giving us a handout free no strings attached or buy one get one free deal, we will always end up spending more than we planned to. >> what's the problem, though, with buy one get one free? >> sometimes it's not just buy one get one free, sometimes it's buy three, get one free. a lot of the coupons were for multiple deals, and we fell for them, buying more than we really need. >> you also say that it's like in real estate, location, location, location. >> yes. >> beginning and end of the aisle is where they like to put stuff. >> the end cap displays on aisles are typically where the grocery store manager likes to put the inventory he wants to get rid of. a lot of times the items are on
9:38 am
sale, but we assume always the item will be on sale. the only way you can find out, get the item, find it in its regular location in the grocery store and see if there's a sale or discount or do a price check before you assume it's on sale. >> what about when you see if a product says $9.99, we always assume that, we see this as $9. >> it's just $9. it's our head that's playing the trick on us. when we read digits we read from left to right so that first number has more weight than the other digits in that figure. so $9.99 is $9. $8.99 is $8. >> ten for ten. >> right, you don't have to buy all ten. that's the trick. that's the trip up. >> they just want to you buy ten. >> they want to you buy as many as possible because they want to move that inventory, but chances are you can probably buy one and get that discounted price. >> so you've loaded up your car, on your way home, stop at a restaurant, look at the menu and they leave off the dollar sign. >> that's on purpose.
9:39 am
business schools, restaurant management schools around the country are teaching this to their students that when you create menus, particularly at high-end restaurants, you want to leave off the price tag because you want the customer to focus on the food as opposed to the price and a study shows at cornell university that when diners go to an upscale restaurant where there are dollar signs, they end up spending less. so just be wary of that, take your calculator. >> speaking of dollars, dollar stores you say there's some problems with some of those. >> sometimes. "consumer reports" has done a lot of research on dollar stores. you want to stay away sometimes from products that pose health or safety risks. for example, batteries at the dollar store, a lot of times are generic brand, made with carbon zinc as opposed to lithium. lithium is a better standard, a better grade product and sometimes those carbon zinc batteries can leak. so you want to read the ingredients there. also some vitamins, health supplements have been found to
9:40 am
have expiration dates that are overdue or they don't have proper labeling so these items you want to double check. >> and then a lot of us go looking on the web for deals and a lot of websites have the daily deal. >> right. that's all about adrenalin. we buy these daily deals on impulse. you really want to read the fine print especially for travel deals because they might have expiration dates or blackout dates and i almost fell for this, if you see a deal for a fitness club or a salon, sometimes you have to be a first time customer in order to get the deal. you might buy this and find out i can't use it. 20% to 30% of daily deals go wasted, unused. >> great advice. thank you very much. >> you're welcome. still ahead the secrets to waking up beautiful. i never do that. we'll show you which products meag rightes aer these ssages. ahh, one.
