>> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb. live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> hello, everybody. it's boozeday tuesday. october 8. starting to feel a nip in the air. a big storm came through here yesterday. it's tuesday. october 8. starting to feel a nip in the air. a big storm came through here yesterday. not so bad today. >> the storm was rocking and rolling. then we woke up to a different kind of storm. >> two huge new york headlines. huge! >> huge, huge men in my life. >> the first one. >> yeah. >> involves your husband. >> mm-hmm.
>> one frank gifford and apparently according to the new york post it said johnny got his gun because johnny carson, according to this newspaper, was upset because his wife -- >> yes, joanne. >> and frank many years ago were, according to a source that may not be correct, were having a fling. >> johnny was reduced to tears. >> tears. >> and had a weapon. >> so what happened? >> i got in the car. frank was still asleep. he called and i said, hello. he said do you believe this? i said, tell me. it was a long time ago. did you have an affair with her? he goes, i can't remember. maybe. it's not true that particular one although the man is capable of it, as you know. it's not true.
friends with joanne back in the day. >> this is a shot of frank back in the day. packing cheat. >> that's his beautiful wife maxine who has passed on. she does look a little bit like joanne. >> no. that's maxine, his wife at the time. >> oh, okay. >> so, you know. it's never dull in our house. >> also on the front page. >> yes. >> they are related in some ways. >> sex shocker with matt lauer. >> it's a great day here . it's a good day to be alive. >> when you get the papers and they are like this, you're so happy. i was wondering what was matt going to do when the show started. because if you didn't see, yesterday he interviewed miley cyrus who said after 40, people stop having sex.
she said, how old are you? he said, i'm 55. she said, you're definitely not having sex. we wondered what was matt going to do. >> it was a firestorm. >> it was all over everything. >> this morning, matt lauer was on set. here 's what happened. >> let's move on to something else. >> i heard when you turn 40 things go a little less sexual. >> don't say that. >> probably around 40. i heard that's when people don't have sex anymore. so i guess maybe around then. >> do you know how old i am? >> i'm going to guess 40. >> i love you. 55. >> 55? well, then you are really definitely not sexual. >> i'm matt lauer and i'm too old to have sex. >> that's what i read in the paper today. >> it's all over the place. >> it's all over. he handled it perfectly. here's the thing. when kids are 20, they can't even imagine their parents ever making love. >> grosses them out. >> ew. you know, the thing is lots of people have sex as they get older but they cannot remember it.
>> here's the thing. you can have a lot of sex which is probably what people miley's age and such are doing. or you can have meaningful sex. >> like hoda has. >> like people who are mature have. not that kind of sex. the good kind. >> not the twerking kind. >> today.com asked our watchers what they thought this. the question was do you think people have less sex after the age of 40. 61% said no. >> i think you do have less. first of all you have families and you're busy than when you are single, 21. >> you have a job. >> yeah. but the whole johnny carson thing reminds me of a funny story frank told me. there were tons of paparazzi outside of dinah shore's house. she was having a dinner party. frank said, i'm going around the back. i know i will go through the sliding glass doors. he's been her friend forever. they're locked.
so he sees a window open. >> no, he didn't. >> he's in a white suit. he's climbing in the window. johnny carson says, i'll have a fudgesicle. that's the way johnny's humor was. he looked like the good humor man. frank was accused of it with dinah, with everybody . when you look like brad pitt, people accuse you of things. >> yeah. my mom was up last night. this this morning when i was in the makeup room she sent a text. mom tells us when somebody makes fun of us. on another show. >> that's why i don't watch other shows. her mother tells us. >> my mom said jay leno mentioned last night about two people passing out at the "molly" cyrus concert but they got up in time to do the fourth hour. i guess he meant you and kathie lee. love, mom. she had to rewind it twice.
we'll see if she's right. >> miley was on the "today" show this morning where she performed. a couple of drunken fans had to be taken out after they caused a stir. the two women were able to pull it together to host the fourth hour of the "today" show later. for a while there, yeah. [ applause ] >> ha, ha, ha. >> that joke never gets old. >> we just enjoy it. it's the gift that keeps on giving. casey kasem, beloved -- he 's the first one i remember doing the top ten countdown. beloved disk jockey from a long time ago. >> sure. he's 81, suffering from parkinson's. you may have seen the story in the news. his daughter's assistant and others who love him say they are
being prevented from seeing him if what they believe may be his final time on the planet. his wife isn't allowing them entry into the home to see him. >> they haven't been in the house for ten years, they are claiming. >> they may have seen him. they haven't been in the home. they went out on the streets with signs. >> to protest. >> either going through court injunctions to see if they can see their dad. it's one thing if one daughter isn't allowed. when you watch the group of loved ones. >> it's not just the family members. his friends, a lot of people. his daughter julie spoke to the press about the situation. let's see what she had to say. >> i don't want any of his money. i don't want his estate. i don't want anything. i simply want to see my father on a regular basis, give him a hug, hold his hand, give him a massage, put a smile on his face. it's that simple. >> i lived in l.a. when he'd first married jean, his current wife.
i think she was 17. he was 50. >> oh, when they got married? >> it was a huge scandal at the time. you can tell it's been a problem for his children. i just remember thinking -- >> she was 17? >> that's what billy bush told us. she had the largest mammary glands i have ever seen in my life. she was impressive. >> anyway, if you guys saw something like a ghost or something super natural, how would you react? that's a question. so there is a new movie coming out. >> a remake. >> "carrie." we see movie trailers and say, that looks scary. the film makers decided to really scare people in a coffee shop and make this the trailer of the movie. >> they rigged the entire coffee shop and built a fake wall and a
pulley system. >> oh, my god! >> that sucks. i'm sorry. >> you just ruined my stuff. >> get some napkins. it's fine. >> fine? there is coffee inside my computer. do you know what? get away from me. [ screaming ] >> get away from me. >> oh, my god. i would freak. >> oh, oh! >> oh, my god. [ screaming ] >> oh, my god. [ screaming ] >> that one girl in the corner. oh, my god. that was genius. >> wow. do you know what? they took a risk. somebody could have been hurt in the making of that. there could have been a lawsuit.
>> how authentic and terrifying? >> when the chairs started moving. >> the guy sliding up the wall wouldn't have done it for you? >> no, no. that didn't get me. >> that's defying gravity, hoda. >> i don't know why. but the rest of it looked real. >> get some napkins, clean it up. it's fine. >> fine? there is coffee in my computer. get away from me. [ screaming ] >> okay. i take it back. i think i knew it was coming. >> watch this. do this part again. >> creepy. >> oh, my god. >> is anybody leaving? >>there is one girl. look at the girl in the corner. [ screaming ]
>> you never know what you would do. >> i would run out of there. what would you do? >> i think i would get out as fast as possible. >> there is nothing -- she was possessed. that's crazy. we have an announcement. nbc is kicking off education nation. coming up, we have a tribute to teachers and a big announcement to make. >> yes, we do. >> in the program. >> did you have a teacher that left a big impression on you? if so, we want you to let us know. >> did you? >> i did. it was my senior year. >> okay. >> my english teacher said, i'm going to fail you if you don't enter this pageant. pageants were the least cool thing in the world. it was america's junior miss program. i said, the last thing i want -- it was a scholastic pageant. >> allegedly. >> it was! no bathing suits. would i put on a bathing suit?
there are satellites in the sky. anyway, i loved this teacher. she was very important. so i tried out and it changed my whole life. my whole career started because of that. you? >> ms. rosebrock used to have the kids in the back of the class who were scary, bullies. she used to make them give a speech. one of the tough ones gave such a moving speech. she would somehow crack the shells around young kids and bring them out. >> are you going to cry? >> i could. >> wow. by any other name orlando bloom would be just as hot. >> now he's bringing new life -- that's calculatedly cool, baby. we'll find all about romeo and juliet after this.
orlando bloom, the perfect name. >> it is. >> orlando bloom. >> bloom. >> known for playing ultimate fantasy roles like in "pirates of the caribbean." he tried to win kiera knightley's heart and as the blond, blue-eyed elf prince in "lord of the rings." >> now making his broadway debut in "romeo & juliet." we bet you know who he's playing. >> mercutio. >> that's one of the best roles ever written. so cool. you're on for, like, the first act and then you're off. >> playing romeo. was it daunting when you took it on initially? >> it was. i have told the story a few times. mom likened it to me climbing everest out of the gate without ever climb climbing with oxygen. i studied with a voice coach.
i never got to play a lead in a shakespeare play. >> weren't you in the royal shakespeare company when you got a call for a film? >> i had that opportunity when i was 20, 21, leaving drama school. i was like, let's go. this is perfect. it's the route that, if you are lucky, you get. then i had this ridiculous opportunity in "lord of the rings." my agent knew it was on the cards because i had a meeting for it already. turned into the trilogy. >> it's worked out well for you. >> it certainly has. >> very, very well. >> why did you decide to go back to broadway? >> this is my debut. but back to theater, it's something that i feel i have picked up a thread in a way.
i feel like i needed it in order to kind of feel whole and complete again, you know? >> there is nothing like a live audience. >> i'll be a different actor by the end of this. i will be. it's taught me so much. i have loved every moment of the rehearsal process. getting the chance to really speak the poetry of william shakespeare in this day and age. >> it is a reimagination of the story set in present day but the shakespearian language is still there. >> it's well edited. it's about two hours. this play would be three and a half. >> for today's audiences they are not used to nickelby stuff anymore. >> i grew up in canterbury, a cathedral city. i would walk in the as a kid and you have a sense of space and a connection.
i can sort of liken that when we are having a good night in the theater and reciting the the poetry of shakespeare i hope you get a sense of the history of the language. it's so well edited. even if it doesn't immediately tune into your ear you can go with the way david la beau -- our director, he's really done a good way of making this accessible and the actress who plays juliet is one of the most beautiful things you have ever seen. she lights up the stage. >> she's no miranda kerr. >> very true. >> we wish you luck. >> you have the cutest baby boy ever. >> please come. >> we wish you success. >> look at this kid. >> we're going to try. from mascara smears -- oh! >> so a quick hair fix.
