9:06 am
southern california. her death was ruled an accidental drowning, but now authorities have reopened the case. we'll hear from the captain who was on board in just a moment. but first, nbc's george lewis is in los angeles with more. good morning, george. >> reporter: good morning, david. the sheriff's department says it's been contacted by people with new information about the case. how natalie wood died has been the subject of a three decades old hollywood mystery filled with rumor and suspicion that her drowning was no accident. ♪ i feel pretty oh so pretty ♪ >> reporter: pretty and talented and at the top of her career, as maria in "west side story." natalie wood's death at age 43 in november of 1981 from drowning shocked the world. a who's who of hollywood among the mourners at her funeral. to some friends, the tragedy didn't quite add up, because natalie wood said she had always been afraid of water. >> i've always been terrified, still am, of water. dark water, sea water. >> reporter: she had been
9:07 am
boating with her husband, actor robert wagner, and with countri christopher walken, the co star of her last film. they were anchored off catalina island in wagner's boat, "the splendor." >> she had slipped on the swim seat step on the aft end of the boat. tragic, tragic night. >> reporter: the coroner said she had been drinking several glasses of wine and may have lost her balance. >> cause of death will be certified as accidental drowning. >> reporter: right after her death, her lawyer tried to dampen speculation that there had been some sort of foul play. >> the facts are clear, they're uncontradicted. the important facts. and the rest is just ghoulish nonsense. >> reporter: but there were hints of a possible love triangle. a possible argument on-board the boat between the two men. and in a tell-all book published last year, the captain "the splendor," dennis davern said he
9:08 am
saw wagner arguing with natalie wood on the deck of the boat. now the los angeles county sheriff's office says it is reopening the investigation. releasing a statement saying, "recently sheriff's homicide investigators were contacted by persons who stated they had additional information about the natalie wood/wagner drowning." a statement from robert wagner's publicist says the wagner family fully supports the sheriff's investigation. the statement also says it hopes that the sheriff's department is not acting on information from people who are trying to profit off the 30th anniversary of the drowning. there has been no reaction from christopher walken. david? >> george lewis in los angeles this morning. thank you very much. earlier this morning, i spoke exclusively with dennis davern, along with martir rulli. i began by asking what the information was that investigators are now zeroing in on. >> i can't answer that question right now. >> and why not?
9:09 am
you're referring to mistakes you made. have you changed your story from when you spoke to investigators years ago? >> i did lie on a report years ago. >> and what did you lie about then? >> it was just a miss -- i made mistakes by not telling the honest truth. >> is it your charge that, in fact, robert wagner essentially tried to make this a low-profile investigation, did not do everything he could to try to find her, once she went missing after their argument? >> yes, it was. it was to be kept a low-profile investigation. >> so you're saying that wagner did not do everything he should have done to look for her after she went missing. >> exactly. >> was she -- was he responsible for her death in some way? >> well, like i said, i think we all made mistakes that night. and -- >> mr. davern, that wasn't my
9:10 am
question. was he responsible for her death? i'm not asking about your story. >> yes, i would say so. yes. >> how so? >> i really don't want to get involved in anything -- >> how can you come on national television, sir, and accuse him of something like that but not back it up? >> well, that's up to the investigators. i don't want to speak for -- >> well, you're speaking to investigators. are they not reopening this investigation based on information that you have provided them? >> yes, they are. >> you may be an opportunist. you're saying that robert wagner was responsible for her death, but not saying how. not shedding light on why it is after 30 years they would reopen an investigation when that's a very unusual step for any investigative body to do. >> far away from even thinking about profiting over a 30-year anniversary. i've known this information for many, many years. and my book has been out for two years. i'm not in it for any kind of profit. i'm in it for the justice of the
9:11 am
whole situation. >> marti rulli, you helped mr. davern with this book. i'll ask you the question. what do we know now that we didn't know then? >> well, there was a fight aburiboard "the splendor" the night natalie died, a terrible argument. that was never relayed to the original investigators. and none of the survivors, walken, wagner or dennis, were forthcoming with the investigators. >> so then what happens? i mean, i've just heard mr. davern say he thinks wagner was responsible for his wife's death. what happened? >> natalie was mortified, went to her state room, wagner followed. and a terrible argument transpired that broke out to the back deck. dennis overheard the arguing. he did make an attempt to stop it. was told to go away by robert
9:12 am
wagner. and then minutes later, natalie was missing. dennis was asked to search the boat. he did. he couldn't find natalie. he met up with wagner in the wheel house. dennis wanted to do everything, make a phone call, turn on the search light. his instincts told him something was terribly wrong. and robert wagner asked him not to. >> i want to stop at that point. mr. davern, wagner said not to. not to take direct steps that could help identify where natalie wood was. had she fallen off the boat. that's what you're saying. >> yes, we didn't take any steps to see if we could locate her. >> do you have any evidence, any information to say that there was foul play, that this was murder, that he was responsible for her being pushed off the boat? or was it a matter of him simply
9:13 am
saying we're not going to look too hard? >> i think it was a matter of we're not going to look too hard. we're not going to turn on the search light, we're not going to notify anybody right at the moment. >> you never told the police that at the time, did you? >> no. >> why not? >> well, because we all had -- we all had our story to tell the homicide detectives at the time. and that's the story i told. >> so you agreed with robert wagner to tell a story he wanted you to tell and not the truth. >> yes. >> why should anyone believe you now, when you didn't tell the truth then? >> well, that time, my life was just totally, totally crazy at that time. and you know, i don't think there was a time where i was even able to even think

9:17 am
their marriage was on the rocks, demi moore made it official on thursday, releasing a statement saying that she is ending her six-year marriage to ashton kutcher, with, quote, a heavy heart and great sadness. the divorce comes amid reports of infidelity by futurer. the "two and a half men" star responded by saying, quote, he will forever cherish his time with demi. kate, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> boy, i thought demi moore's statement kind of hinted at this idea of infidelity. is that what we think ultimately broke this marriage apart? >> it more than hinted at it. while the split itself wasn't unexpected, per se, the fact that the statement was released came solely from demi and made such a pointed reference to the fact that she is ending this, she is walking away. >> she said her vows mean something. >> her vows, as a woman, a wife and a mother. there are vows and values that she holds sacred, and it is in that spirit that she is moving on. this is an opening salvo.
9:18 am
this is not a subtle standard, joint statement, with all of the usual, we have the greatest respect, we'll remain friends. that's not what's happening here. >> well, does that -- do you signal that this is going to be an acrimonious divorce? >> it's not going to be acrimonious, per se. there's not a whole lot to fight over. they don't have children together. they each have their own considerable wealth. so we're not necessarily expecting a messy court battle in terms of that. but clearly, emotions are running very high. she is hurt, and she is letting people know that she is hurt. >> a lot of people looked at this marriage up until this point saying, well, this is an example of the may-september romance, where the woman is quite a bit older than the man, and is hey, it seems to be working. and she, needless to say, is drop-dead gorgeous. do you think that people are watching this and disappointed because they think, oh, gosh, i guess it didn't work out after all. >> well, there is some disappointment. it is still a hollywood couple. and those rarely make it long-term. but there's also a lot of problems with their relationship that have nothing to do with the
9:19 am
age difference. so you don't necessarily need to look at this and think well, it's because she is 49 and he's 33. that's why they were doomed. >> i know, you made a point about their differing levels of success. that kutcher all of a sudden is on top of the world in terms of a new show and really making a come-back. and she may be in the waiting days of her career, hasn't had that big hit recently. do you think that fed into it? >> it's been a long time since demi moore has been the highest bade actress in hollywood. and ashton is the number-one store in the number-one show on television. and that has to have taken a toll. it would take a toll on a couple in the best of circumstances, which theirs were not. >> all right. well kate coin, thank you so much. appreciate your time. and still to come, are you a stress eater? we're going to help you get a handle on the holidays so you don't pack on the pounds. but first, these messages.

9:38 am
thanksgiving, christmas, new year's ahead of us. it's easy to get stressed out and start packing on the pounds. here to keep you on track is today's diet and nutrition editor madeline fernstrom and gail saltz. good to see you. >> hey, al. >> so stress eating. what is it, and this emotional eating and why do people end up turning to food? >> food is such an important part of everything we do. it's not just to fuel ourselves and when we feel stressed, we turn to food, because let's face it, it's soothing and tastes good and for the moment, it's really validating and very reinforcing but masking a lot of things going on. this hand-to-mouth activity, all this nervous anxiety. this is fueled by food. and then the problem is the more stress we get, the more we start to eat mindlessly. but the good news, you have learned this and you can unlearn it. >> so gail, you say one of the things people have to start thinking about as we go into the holidays is about your expectations and managing those. >> right. because the reason, it's harder around the holidays is exactly
9:39 am
that. because we envision all of the families should get along beautifully, we should make this incredible perfect meal so we appear to be the super-duper mom and most competitive. and when you set yourself up that way, of course it's going to be incredibly stressful. so to some degree, bringing expectations back into line and saying, look, if it's going to be so much work and i'm going to be stressed out, having a pot luck thanksgiving will really offload me and it's not going to make me not a great mom, not a great hostess, et cetera. you have to realize that you can bring people together, but you can't make them adore one another and get along in every moment. so there are going to be things that are going to happen that are really not in your control and that's okay. >> and trying to keep control, madeline. one of the things you need to do, keep track of your eating. >> you want to stay in control, because the issue is what triggers you to eat? it's not just the foods, it's also the situation, like gail was saying. it's really less about what you're eating and more about managing stress. so you have this think about things, be a mindful eater and go what things cause me to overeat, certain foods, healthy
9:40 am
or not healthy, that don't satisfy you, but cause you to overeat. but the situations are more important. you go to your in-laws house, very stressful. you have to have ways of managing who am i going to talk to, let me mine myself what i'm doing and think about the situation and food. >> so does that play into self-talking to yourself? >> self-talk is huge and can make a really, really big difference. you almost have to have like a preloaded tape of things that you can say to yourself in those stressful moments. so, for instance, a really good one that i often tell patients to say is something to the effect of, i can only bring the family together. i can't make them get along. >> so a mantra. >> a mantra. i can only serve a lovely meal. i can't make a perfect holiday. sometimes it helps to write them out. what the line is to yourself that creates a reasonable expectation that destresses you in the moment. >> and when you're at your own home, you can kind of control the meal, you can control the menu. but when you go out, madeline, you say one of the things you do, and i took this from you, because i do this now a lot. i pre-eat before i go to a
9:41 am
party. of. >> that's a good thing. that's not overeating, it's eating before you go someplace. you're going to have some soup, some crunchy vegetables, you can have some yogurt, maybe a few slices of turkey. so when you get there, you don't feel vulnerable to all of the things that are there, whether you like them or not. and the worst thing, when you're in an environment you don't like and start to gobble up food because you're nervous. preeating takes the pressure off. you know you've eaten and had something to drink and you can detach from the whole situation. >> we have a long -- >> long holiday season. >> and stress cooking skills and the eating techniques will really serve you well. >> gail saltz, madeline, thank you so much. up next, men's wear inspired looks for women of all ages. right after these messages. so you earn 50% more cash. according to research, everybody likes more cash. well, almost everybody... ♪ would you like 50% more cash? no!
