klgandhoda. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb, live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> hello, everybody. guess what sit? >> what is it? >> hoda's favorite day. wines day wednesday, june 4. >> also known as apology wednesday. >> we were just talking about this yesterday, that everybody seems to be saying something and then having to apologize for the something they said. >> yes. certain individuals or certain groups.
the pc police were calling them. >> after we got off the air, what happened? another person had to apologize. jonah hill says he was walking down the street doing his shopping with friends and the paparazzi were hounding him and yelling things at him. >> apparently for what he was wearing. >> he was wearing flowers on shorts and they were making comments. >> goading him. i get a picture of you snarling or video of you snarling and then saying homo phobic or racial slurs, jackpot. >> he fired back with what he describes as a homophobic slur, and he felt terrible afterwards. we talked about apologies. this is what jonah hill said to jimmy fallon last night. >> the word i chose was grotesque, and you know, no one
deserves to say or hear words like that. you know, i've been a supporter of the lbgt community my entire life, and i completely let the members of that community and everybody else down when i used a word like that this weekend. my heart's broken and i genuinely am deeply sorry to everyone who has been affected by that term in their life. and i'm sorry, and i don't deserve or expect your forgiveness, but what i ask is that at home, if you're watching this and you're a young person especially, if someone says something that hurts you orang r -- or angers you, use me as an example of me of what not to do. again, i'm so sorry.
>> i appreciate you being sincere in saying that. >> this wasn't funny, it was stupid. >> boy, don't you just love him all the more now? you do. he sincerely regrets. you know what? everybody has their own fuse. some people have a short fuse, some people have a really long one, and sometimes they the most explosive because it takes so long to get there, but when they do, it's been building up. like you, hoda. but everybody is different. they do goad. they do goad you. >> they push and push you. we asked you on facebook yesterday what do you think of celebrity apologies. overall, we're not talking about specifics, but 38% of you said yes, the celebs should apologize for their comments, but 62% said no, an apology is not necessary.
they're human and make mistakes. but the way jonah hill apologized. >> you could tell, he's really -- >> he was really great. i think the question is how people apologize. people do this in real life. forget about celebs, but in real life when someone hurts your feelings, sometimes they say, i'm sorry if i hurt you. and that's a crummy apology. >> sandy taylor said saying you're sorry doesn't mean anything. actions speak louder than words. >> apologies that use the word "if," there's no need for ifs in a sincere apology. karen said, i'm sick of society demanding apologies from everybody famous. celebrities are human. stop judging. >> what about the n word? i bet many more people would say yes, you have to apologize for that. >> definitely. >> okay. >> so the finale was last night.
we'll catch you up. here's the big revelation. dean and torrey are still together, okay? >> off-season torrey has been looking for some grand gesture from dean. apparently he revealed a gift last night just for her. let's take a look. >> you have something for torrey, yes? >> yes, i do. >> let's see. >> oh, my god. >> tell us what that is dean. >> those are the wedding vows that tori wrote to me. she has hers on her left side that i wrote for her. >> oh, my god. >> do you like it? >> it's beautiful. >> tori, what does it say? >> i will fefr bring you solace when you're down hearted. i will wipe your tears with my tiny hands. i will comfort you with my body and embrace you my wings. i love you, my beautiful boy, for all of eternity. >> i'm uncomfortable. >> me, too. >> it's just all too private for me. i wish them the best, but i
could never watch that on a daily basis. >> well, it's over. >> that's the good news. he also has another tattoo that is -- >> downstairs. >> right above the nether world that says tori's. >> that's right, okay, just so everybody knows. tori did want to ask dean a question, if he had cheated more than once. she decided not to ask that question, because she said she didn't want to know. i think that became kind of a little bit of a discussion point. like if your spouse, significant other cheated, would you want to know details, how many, where were they, what happened? or are you like me, when you go okay, let's not do that anymore, and then you want it over with. so everyone is different. she didn't want to ask that question. >> hopefully if he did with many, they were illiterate and could and read.
because that would be -- [ laughter ] >> what is that? >> i don't like tattoos in general. you know i don't. but cody -- frank has one. he was 14 years old, his brother -- yes, yes, yes. >> what is it? >> shock from -- it's -- when he was 14 years old, his older brother got him drunk and took him -- >> 14? >> yes. this was back in the 1800s. took him to a tattoo parlor in california and he had giff done. he didn't even know it until he sobered up. now if you look at it, it goes, guff. pretty soon he's going to be an older man at some point and tori's is going to go -- and it's not pretty. i love his little -- but it's just little and cute. >> so here's -- just in case
you're wondering, as soon as this show ended, the tori and dean show. >> this seems contrived to me. >> tori is starring in a new show on abc family, and it's called "mystery girl." she's the star and executive producer. >> it begins june 25th. >> now we're reacquainted with tori. hey, there she is. >> it seems a little manipulative. but you know what? we like tori and we wish her and her family the best. >> we do. here's something else that cheaters say. can bad in-laws hurt a marriage? some cheaters are saying the reason they cheated on their spouse is because their in-laws were driving them insane. so it drove them to cheat. >> i think they'll find any excuse. the dating survey done by victoria milan, not to be
confused with ashley madison. dating site for cheaters. hey, they need help with it. apparently. >> so the survey came from the cheater website? >> yes, another one. >> let's go on to the next subject. >> i told you in the meeting we shouldn't have done it. >> do you remember what shanadeo connor looked like in the '90s. this was her. now let's see the new cover. >> i thought it was katy perry when i first thought it. >> i did, too. the new album is called "i'm not bossy, i'm the boss," and she's 47. mariah carrie decided to pose with her kids. this is what kathie lee and i do at the park, we wear a ball gown
with a mermaid bottom. she's with her kids, because she was on the subway in another ball gown the other day. >> just trying to get attention for her new cd, which we heard from different sources was not doing as well as her cds often do. >> her new album is expected to debut at number three. >> i would kill for that. >> it's her lowest sales debut for a nonholiday studio album since 1991. >> but it would be her 17th top ten album. her fans adore her. we want her to be happy, as well. >> she looks great. she's on the cover of rolling stone, you guys. she has lost 25 pounds and she looks awesome. she was on cbs "sunday morning" and talks about her life.
>> there was a line that said there was a $100 million divorce. >> so that hits news stands friday. >> her plane had to make an energy landing. there was an issue with the flight and it landed safely in west virginia. >> it's been a big week for fireman around here. >> this is a genius idea. if you're looking for clothes online and you see the model that they show you and they let you do the 360 and she's a size two, you think how would i look in that dress? well, they have now a website that changes that. you can actually see the exact outfit in your size. it's so smart, because a dress can look adorable on someone who
is a size two. but when you get it, you go oh, that is not good for me. it's genius. so they hired different models so you get to choose your model. >> what's the website? >> i don't know. sizable. >> sunday is father's day. >> this sunday? >> no, next sunday. >> oh, thank goodness. >> next sunday. >> today is the 4th? >> i don't know. >> i obviously don't have anything yet. we want to know why you love your dad. so film yourself or your child finishing this sentence. i love my dad because -- put it on our facebook page and we may show it, maybe not, one day next week. >> if you don't have a video, put a picture up. so go on a date, should you call him or wait till he calls you? >> we have the new dating commandments to live by.
