>> all over. >> yeah. >> well, neil diamond has a way of -- >> what have i told you about neil diamond, hoda? >> well, he's your lover. >> not exactly, but i do love him. that's how things get started. >> tell the story, though. it's so cute the way he showed us. he took a red-eye that night. >> he took a red-eye that night. you know his song, "sweet caroline" is something that's always played at fenway park. and he called the switchboard at fenway and said hey, this is neil diamond. i'd love to come and sing at fenway. and i guess the operator connected him to who he needed to be connected to. he ended up singing right there at the game. and the crowd just went nuts. >> insane. i would go insane anyway if he showed up because i'm such a huge fan of his personally and artistically. but the fact he did that that night, he realized, okay, they're playing a game tomorrow. he got on a plane. he came in. that's patriotism every bit as much as everything else. we're not like dear friends or
2:06 am
anything, but i remember particularly about maybe six years ago or something like seven i was interviewing him and we had one of those great -- so rarely do we get a chance to spend a long time with someone. i think it was about an hour and 15 minutes. >> wow. >> really went through his whole career and all of that. and i kept looking at the shirt he had on. it was like one of those velvet, just -- i know that sounds tacky. but it wasn't. it was like crushed velvet. it was a great shirt. and i remember saying to him, i would love to have a sofa made out of that. that is the greatest-looking shirt. and he said, thank you so much. as i was getting ready to leave after the interview, he walks out of his dressing room and literally gave me the shirt off his back. he had gone, changed clothes, brought it back and gave it to me. i in turn, because this is the way i roll, gave it to my pastor who is a huge neil diamond fan, and i've really been sorry ever since i gave it to him. >> you should have kept it. >> i know. i know. anyway, somebody that we love -- >> oh, can we just real quick talk for one second? i'm only going to talk five seconds about my dog. and that's it. >> what a weekend you had.
2:07 am
it was sammy's birthday. >> my mom's birthday. blake took a road trip with me to rehoboth beach with me in the car for four hours. look who is walking blake. oh, hi, we're walking blake. okay. that's right by the boardwalk. there's my mom. everybody got in on the blake fun. >> how did blake do in the car -- >> look at this. look what's happening. >> how is it walking him? >> good. >> is he good? uh-oh. uh-oh. here comes trouble. now let's remember, he has not been fixed yet. >> he's three months old. no, he's five. they already did it. >> i thought you had to wait six months. >> oh. maybe he's six months, then, because they already did it. he's been fixed. is it illegal? >> not illegal -- i don't know. they fixed him and -- he was already fixed when he was here. let's talk about our friend, reese witherspoon.
2:08 am
>> everybody loves reese witherspoon and everybody was happy when she found love and had another baby with james toth, who is an agent, not her agent but an agent out in los angeles. and then -- >> uh-oh. >> she had one of those nights you wish you could probably ring the bell and do all over. that's a mug shot. >> that's a darling one. >> if you're going to have a mug shot, that's a darn good one. they got pulled over. she and her husband. her husband apparently had too much to drink. they did one of those -- he blew in the tube. >> breathalyzer. >> right. and he was .39 -- >> .1.39. .08 is the legal limit. that was not the issue. it's what she allegedly did. she stood by her man. >> they took him out of the car and she said she wanted to get out of the car. and the officer told her to stay in the car. i think he said -- it says here "miss witherspoon began to hang out of the window saying that she didn't believe i was a real police officer and i told mrs. witherspoon to sit on her butt
2:09 am
and be quiet and miss witherspoon responded, do you know my name? and i answered, no, i don't know your name right now. and mrs. witherspoon stated, you're about to find out who i am. you are going to be on national news." >> well, that's true. but so is she. and i love reese. but i don't think she was speaking clearly, thinking clearly either. this is what i don't understand. she did have a statement, which i thought was terrific. out of respect for the ongoing legal -- oh, that's not what i'm -- i wasn't going to read. the one where she says -- >> that's it. it goes down further. >> yeah. "out of respect for the ongoing legal situation i can't comment on everything that's being reported but i want to say clearly had one drink too many." >> and i was deeply embarrassed about the things i said. it was definitely a scary situation and i was frightened for my husband. but that is no excuse, i was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. the words i used that night definitely do not reflect who i am. i have nothing but respect for the police and i'm very sorry for my behavior." that, people-s an apology. >> yeah, she was quick to apologize.
2:10 am
>> complete ownership of it. but here's what i don't understand. whether it's lindsay lohan driving around or it's reese and her husband. why is it sometimes that the people who can afford it the most just don't get a car and driver? they can afford to have -- if they're going to go out for a night on the town and they know they're going to have a couple of drinks, get a car -- get a driver. call a cab or something. >> i know. but i do have to say when i was watching the earlier story, they showed her movies. >> we love reese. >> oh, my god. all i could think of was i want to see "sweet home alabama" and the johnny cash movie again. i love both of those movies. >> and "legally blonde." she needs that lawyer right now. >> i love those movies. >> she's a great actress and she's a lovely, lovely person and we all make mistakes. i made one saturday night. but i'm not going to tell you about it. we went to my friend carol creole's birthday party. there's a new restaurant i've never been to k5u8d del posto. i guess it's lidia bacianic. and is it mario batali?
2:11 am
they have a couple of restaurants together. we went there. >> was the food great? >> the food was fantastic. but we also had some wine. we had a great guy michael, who drove us there and drove us home. we're the very same people that they always ask us to do, don't drink and drive psas. then you've got to -- you can't do it. >> right. >> hoda. >> they've never asked me to do a don't drink and drive psa. anyway. we have to show this video, the little girl who doesn't want to buckle her seat belt. we haven't seen it but it's touted as the video to watch. let's see. >> by yourself. >> can i help? >> no. no help. >> you want me to help? >> no. thank you. >> thank you. >> oh, my god, look at her. >> what do you want me to do? >> worry about yourself. >> what? >> worry about yourself. >> worry about yourself. >> worry about yourself. >> i'm going to do that. you drive. i don't need your help. you go drive. >> oh!
2:12 am
>> you worry about yourself. >> it reminded me of cassidy. when i used to -- i made her -- i was crazy about getting her to say "thank you." "no. thank you." >> thank you. >> that parent's doing everything right. you've got to love that dad. >> shall we talk about favorite things? >> shall we? first of all. brilliant minds think alike this our dear friend bobbie having a very big year. her book comes out tomorrow. she's getting married at my house on may 31st. >> yes, she is. >> but this is the first -- this is her book kickoff. it's a beautiful week. we want to get her on the best-seller list. >> by the way, her book is really good. >> it's really good. >> i was looking through and it talks about body shape. and what clothes you're supposed to wear for your body shape. and apparently, i'm -- what is it? when you're short-waisted, and i've been wearing the wrong clothes. how about that? >> i tried to say so. but some of us didn't listen. >> and also you're in the front. did she write in your book? did she sign yours?
2:13 am
