weather news. also breaking right now, hundreds of thousands pouring into cairo's main square, as protesters call for 1 million people, in a violent showdown with the egyptian military. will it be the second revolution? we're live on the ground. new details on "the people's court" missing mom case, as the search gets desperate. who was she afraid of as she appeared on the show? and we're going gaga. a special tour of her brand-new gaga wonderland workshop with the lady herself. stockings that santa will love to stuff. and something special for her little monsters. >> can put it right on. >> oh. >> i love it. >> she looks fun. >> i really was born this way.
7:01 am
was that a gaga fascinator? >> well, it was a little like that. a little hair bump. don't worry. i brought back gifts for everyone. had a chance to sit down. don't let the package fool you. she is so down to earth. this is a workshop she has. and the proceeds going to her charity, born this way. also this morning, we're going to get into thanksgiving. we know that the prices are going up. we're going to follow up with an investigation that brian ross brought us last week. that's a major egg supplier. that's leading to an egg shortage and could be higher prices in much of the country. brian ross is going to bring us that. >> especially with thanksgiving, it's hurting. and the dancers were enfeugo last night. the final three shimmied their
7:02 am
way in a dead heat in one of the closest showdowns ever. who will take home the mirrorball trophy tonight? carson kressley will be here live. >> it could be anybody. >> it's a toss-up. and carson will weigh in on that. and avril levine in our last half hour. and first, we get to sam and the weather. >> thanksgiving is a good day. between now and then, it's a real mess. and if aaa is on-target with 42 million of us traveling, so many will be snarled in two major storms. one in the northwest. and one for the eastern half of the nation. so, let's deal with that. here's day one. severe storms today, will travel anywhere from texas all the way -- call that arkansas into kentucky. that slow starts to move towards the northeast and then becomes a soaking rain event for a good part of the mid-atlantic and the northeast, with up to two inches of rain coming from boston and new york. that slows down air travel and road travel.
7:03 am
but then, it becomes a big snowmaker for extreme northern new england. and that's going to be more than a foot of snow through there. new york state, vermont, new hampshire, into maine. a soggy time period from now until the first part of the morning on thanksgiving, where it will be a beautiful day. and we'll talk more about that in a second. >> you have to pack a lot of patience to get there. to get to grandma's house. sam, thank you very much. and josh elliott here with other top developing stories. >> breaking news overseas. good morning to all of you. it's being called egypt's second revolution. this hour, a mass demonstration of 1 million people planned in cairo's famous, could would say infamous, tahrir square. today, egyptians are demanding the new military rulers step aside and hand over rule to civilian leaders. throwing rocks and firing tear gas at officers. there's concerns that this
7:04 am
violence will only escalate. abc's lama hasan was caught in the middle of it this morning. >> reporter: you see people are retreating because the streets leading to tahrir square has become the front lines. the army has been firing tons of tear gas. they're retreating. they're wearing gas masks to protect themselves. they called for a million man march today. and everywhere you look, there's people. bottom line is, they want the military to go. they want the military to hand over power, to the civilian-led government. >> lama hasan, just moments ago, in the crowds. there are reports that three americans have been arrested. accused of throwing molotov cocktails at police. no official word from the embassy. we'll keep you posted. a trade deal sparked some violence in south korea's parliament today. one threw tear gas.
7:05 am
the trade deal did pass in parliament. here at home, serious questions after an armed standoff at a colorado air base. they want to know how there a gun was able to be snuck past the guards. the man barricaded himself inside the building for some ten hours. he surrendered without a fight. and this morning, a california teen faces 21 years in prison, after admitting he ki8ed his gay classmate. brandon mcinerney shot lawrence king twice in the head during computer class. he said he was offended how king acted and dressed. and in maryland, surveillance cameras caught a flash mob making a midnight run at 7/eleven. flash mobs are becoming so serious, that some cities are set to be considering curfews and loitering laws.
7:06 am
it won't happen in time for thanksgiving. but congress may be stepping into the fight over airline baggage fees. a louisiana senator has aproposed a bill that would allow everyone to check one bag for free. drit critics say it would prompt airlines to find a new fee. and a new study is debunking the mantra, six degrees of separation. scientists, working with facebook, has developed a new algorithm. math proves it's not six. but 4.74 degrees of separation. >> right here in the center. >> i want to know what a 0.74 would do. my arms and one leg. >> josh, thank you. going to turn to the congressional supercommittee's super failure to reach a deal on how to handle america's exploding deficit. jake tapper has more, now, and joins us from the white house. good morning, jake. >> reporter: good morning, robin. president obama thought that
7:07 am
avoiding being directly involved in the supercommittee's negotiations, he would avoid being blamed for any super fail. well, he was wrong. the midnight deadline passed, not only without a compromise. but with even a last-minute attempt to reach one. bipartisan committee opting to issue a terse statement, before packing it in before dinner time. >> there's still too many republicans in congress who have refused to listen to the voices of reason and compromise. >> reporter: heil the president laid blame squarely at the feet of republicans, who refused to raise taxes on upper-income wage earnings, republicans in congress pointed fingers at him. >> the biggest fact of all, is that president obama, with all due respect, like where's waldo? the president of the united states has been missing. he's been awol. >> reporter: $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction, set to
7:08 am
automatically begin in 2013. draconian cuts to the pentagon budget. >> people that lost their jobs, they can't find work. and in 3 1/2 weeks, they couldn't even bother to sit down together. >> reporter: the president will push congress to extend the payroll tax for middle-class americans, when he arrives in new hampshire today. where mitt romney will greet him with his first tv ad of the campaign. showing candidate obama in 2008, promising new hampshire voters, he'll turn the economy around. the president -- >> it must be my religious faith, reverend. because hope springs eternal. and i continue to believe that at some point, common sense will prevail. and we'll be able to work something out. >> reporter: the white house says president obama will continue to push congress to pass $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction, including tax
7:09 am
increases on wealthier americans and corporations, to avoid those onerous cuts in 2013. let's get more with our friend, trish reagan. we saw the markets fall in advance yesterday. but the most immediate economic impact could come from the failure to extend the payroll tax cuts and unemployment benefits. >> and that's bad news for an economy that's already in a fragile state. you're saying this is great because it will end the extension of the bush tax cuts. it will mean that you'll have all of the deficit reductions. but on the other hand, you have to ask if it's the right time? should we be making the moves at a time when the economy is in such a fragile state? >> that is, for a lot of the deficit hawks. the cuts come no matter what. and the tax -- the tax cuts for the wealthy expire at the end of next year if congress does nothing. so, the burden really shifts,
7:10 am
and the deficit goes down, if congress doesn't act. >> wall street's nervous about this issue because they're saying regardless of what happens in 2013, this is more evidence, more proof, that in fact, there's a disconnect in washington. and it's not functioning as it should. there is a breakdown. everything has become so partisan. and they say to themselves, they're looking at the context of europe right now. they're saying, just exactly how are we going to get back on track, to attack this issue at a time when it's clearly necessary to do so. look at europe, right? that's a great example of a breakdown in the political system at the result of economic stress. >> we now -- it certainly looks like not -- despite the president's hope, that not much is going to happen before the election. this is going to be determined, in many ways, by the voters. >> exactly. that's what it's going to come down to, which makes investors nervous. it's more uncertainty. they're not certain what's going to happen. you and i were reporting on
7:11 am
s&p's downgrade of u.s. debt. that's lurking in the background. >> yesterday, all of the ratings agencies, including s&p, said we're not going to downgrade the u.s. because the automatic cuts are there. >> are in place. true. but it points, once again, to political dysfunction. and we've seen what that has meant for europe. and so, the question is, could that eventually mean the same for the u.s.? are investors going to eventually say, you know what? we don't trust the u.s. because we don't trust their political system. right now, we're the best game in town. but could it eventually get there? >> the investors and voters in the same place. congress at its lowest approval rating ever. >> wall street does not like uncertainty. >> not at all. now, major, new developments in the penn state child abuse scandal. a former fbi director has been tapped to head an independent investigation into allegations against former coach jerry sandusky. abc's jim avila is in state college, pennsylvania, again, with the latest. good morning, jim.
7:12 am
>> reporter: good morning, robin. and there's a revealing interview this morning with the attorney of jersey sandusky, who says his client is the victim of death threats himself. and that twice his house has been bricked. but even though his client is now a prisoner in his own home, even his attorney acknowledges, that could change very soon. jerry sandusky's days as a free man may be numbered. so says his own attorney, joe amendola, who says before a preliminary hearing, prosecutors will add charges from new molestation victims and ask the new judge in the case to jail his client before trial. >> my concern is if they bring new charges based on new people coming forward, a bail is going to be set. and he's going to wind up in jail. >> reporter: in an exclusive interview with abc news, amendola revealed a new part of his defense strategy, claiming sandusky could not have committed the most serious of the charges, repeated sexual
7:13 am
contact at his home, because he was never alone with the boys in a crowded house. >> this house was like a hotel. particularly on football weekends. >> reporter: but a lot of people have sex in hotels. >> you're right. they have sex in hotels. but this is a house. and the house was full of people. and jerry, by the way, had six adopted kids and three foster kids. >> reporter: amendola says if his client is guilty, he should go to prison for life. but says he doesn't believe that's the case. amendola says pennsylvania's governor, who was the attorney general when the investigation began, has the power to arrest sandusky immediately. but instead, chose to leave him on the streets. >> if you believe that jerry sandusky was a pedophile, you have to believe there was a substantial risk, while you were continuing a three-year grand jury investigation, which could have resulted in an arrest, with the first boy coming forth three years ago. >> reporter: here on the campus, the students themselves are
7:14 am
getting a break from the scandal. they're on thanksgiving break. but the university moved ahead already in this break, to appoint louis freeh, the former fbi director, to continue the investigation. and he can look at anybody who was involved in this case. >> all would welcome that. jim, thank you. >> he's a tough investigator. we're going to move on now to a follow-up on an exclusive abc news investigation. brian ross brought us undercover video showing animal cruelty and health violations at one of the nation's egg suppliers. mcdonald's stopped buying from them. and now retailers are cutting off the supplier, too. that could mean egg shortages this holiday weekend. >> reporter: target does have a shortage at their grocery stores across the country because they cut off sparboe out of nowhere, on friday evening after our report. mcdonald's has not had a shortage. other grocery store chains have cut out sparboe, but they seem to have the eggs. for target, it's a problem
7:15 am
nationwide. >> could this lead to higher prices for consumers? >> reporter: the laws of supply and demand seem to affect everything. sparboe is out of the chain. they're looking, scrambling, to find more eggs. >> the fda investigating sparboe, as well. how are they responding? >> reporter: sparboe fired four employs, after our undercover video. and have auditors to change the management and clean up their act. >> they have to get the confidence of the retailers back. >> reporter: that's right. >> brian ross, thank you very much. we're closing in on thanksgiving. it's sorry to say that it's going to cost us more this year. thanksgiving is going to cost everything up from air travel to gas prices, to the delicious turkey and stuffing. analysts say the cost of almost everything is going up. you can help us here, can't you, john berman? >> reporter: i'll try. thanks giving is about family. but if you don't like your family, tough turkey. that's an economic term this year because every other part of thanksgiving, all of it, is going to cost you big.
7:16 am
42 million americans will hit the road or take to the skies this week. if you don't like people, tough turkey. that's up 4% from last year. meet the hypothetical smith family, looking to drive to their feith. that's right. tough turkey. driving might be the wrong way because gas prices are up about 50 cents a gallon from last year. is there a right way? what if the hypothetical smiths are flying. you guessed it. tough turkey. airfares up 10% from last year. >> as you get closer to the holiday period, the travel prices do increase. because it's such a compact travel weekend and travellers are going to be traveling over such a short period. >> reporter: and if the hypothetical smiths need a room, we won't even say it. hotel prices are up nearly 5% from last year. and all of this is before the hypothetical smiths sit down to eat because when they do, they
7:17 am
will literally be faced with -- tough turkey. the farm bureau estimates the cost of the classic thanksgiving dinner is up 13% from last year. including a turkey up $3. pumpkin pie, 41 cents. and stuffing up 2 cents. you might not be able to taste the gas in your turkey. but the rising fuel prices increase cost on everything that gets transported to your store shelves. for the hypothetical smiths, where everyone, knocks the stuffing right out of you. so, what can you do about it? here are some saving tips from some smart people in the business. number one, travel on thanksgiving day itself. traffic is down and usually fares are, too. maybe wait until the week after thanksgiving to get the family together. it's the lightest travel week of the year. and as for the food itself, buy the nonperishable stuff early. the cranberry sauce is probably a lot cheaper in the august, if
7:18 am
you can remember to do it. >> i was going to say how do you keep from being a gloomy guy? you did a good job. >> buy cranberry sauce in august. >> next year. stock up. >> stock up now. thanks, john. there is a little bit of good news right here, sam. >> a little bit. thanksgiving day, as john is saying, george, robin, john, good morning, everyone. thanksgiving may be the best weather-wise to travel, as well. here's what's going on with the storm system in the middle of the country. we have two of them going on. the northwest in the next half hour. this one is in the middle of the country. houston, memphis, to cincinnati, atlanta. this is where the strong thunderstorms are erupting and the rough travel will be. it's a little showery on the east coast for a lot of folks. watch this low make its move over the next 12 hours. it moves up towards new england. that means this zone is going to be snow all the way into new york state, vermont, new hampshire, and well into
7:19 am
maine. and the area south of that will be a mess, with heavy rain. that includes, new york, philadelphia, into boston. damp outgray and there with some isolated stray morning and one of through fairfax county and into the district. northwest of the matter we have rain and lingering in southern maryland but the rain will become more
7:20 am
by lunch time and there after through the night early tomorrow morning. rise throughwill today, into the low to >> we come back in the next half hour. it's the northwest forecast, that 80-mile-per-hour coastal wins, 2 feet of mountain snow, up to 8 inches of rain. that's between now and thanksgiving, as well. >> wow. >> a lot to get to. thanks, sam. coming up, the hunt intensifies for the woman who vanished after "the people's court" appearance with her ex-fiance. now, her mother speaks out. and the bieber baby drama. looks like he took that paternity test. tittering nervously]

you see michelle parker right there. that's the last time many people saw her. she is the missing mom, who disappeared just hours after appearing on "the people's court," where she took on her
7:30 am
ex-fiance. the question is, is there a connection between that appearance and her disappearance? >> it's one of those baffling cases. also, justin bieber reportedly takes a dna test to prove he is not the father of this woman's baby. she has dropped the paternity lawsuit. but he's pressing on. we'll find out why, ahead. also this morning, what will lady gaga do next? you spent a lot of time with her yesterday. and she has a big special coming up right here on abc. a very gaga thanksgiving. she directed it. she starred in it. she did everything. >> she's very proud of it. that's going to be thanksgiving night. i had a chance to go one-on-one with her, to talk about that. and also, a sneak peek of her workshop wonderland, that opened last night. >> looks incredible. >> that's ahead. this half hour, we're learning more this morning about the missing mother who vanished on thursday, on the same day she appeared on "the people's court." it's an unusual coincidence. and matt gutman is in orlando
7:31 am
with the latest for us. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this morning, a new twist. we learned that two years before that very contentious "people's court" episode aired, her mother issued a restraining order against dale smith. he's not a suspect. but he is one of the last person to see her alive. in addition to this infamous kwp people's court" episode -- >> he shouldn't have put his hands on me. >> reporter: michelle parker filed this restraining order against dale smith claim, he smashed the passenger side of his suv. and a fan whose facebook has death, destruction and mayhem. and says, your day is coming. but a judge refused to grant the order, citing a lack of evidence. all that, a precursor to their confrontation on "the people's court," which aired just hours
7:32 am
before parker vanished on thursday. >> and we're done. >> reporter: it's an appearance parker dearly regretted, said her mother. >> she said that was the most humiliating experience of my life. i don't ever want to see it. i wish had i never gone. >> reporter: we're looking at everything. >> reporter: evan stewart says the man focus of scrutiny. >> they searched everything he owned. he's let them in his house. they have his computers. he's with my twin babies right now. his -- my grand babies and his children are where he needs to be. he is crying every time i talk to him on the phone. we're not -- we just don't know. >> reporter: on friday, investigators found parker's suv. then, on saturday, they searched smith's house and a nearby field. but after four days of desperate searches with dogs, in the scrub brush and through canals, no
7:33 am
clues. what's your biggest fear right now? >> my biggest fear is that michelle is being held by someone. and that god knows what's happening to her. and her safety. you know, she could be drugged and laying up somewhere and doesn't know where she is. that's my biggest fear. >> reporter: robin, with no evidence so far that she's been abducted, experts who are involved in the search are telling us it's turned into an recovery operation, spread over the entirety of orange county. that's over 900 square miles. robin? >> thank you. joining us now with more on the case is "gma" legal analyst, dan abrams. the mother of the family, what to think and what to do. right now, they're standing by the ex-fiance. >> that's incredibly important for him. both in the investigators and in the court of public opinion. imagine if they weren't, right? he appears on "the people's court" with her. there was a restraining order request made. et cetera. everyone would be saying, come on.
7:34 am
must have been him. with the family saying, we don't think so, that really does change the equation. but with that said, even if -- the fact that this was the ex, means the authorities would have been looking at him anyway. >> and he is the last one to have seen her. >> absolutely. >> also another reason to talk to him. >> there's no question they're going to focus on him. they need to rule him out first. >> that restraining order. police have to look at that. even though she was denied the restraining order, it had to set off alarms. >> absolutely. and in conjunction with the fact they have this humiliating, public battle on "the people's court" hours before she disappears. if this was a random crime -- >> which it could have been. >> could have been. it would be one heck of a coincidence that she appears on national television, in a contentious battle. i don't think it necessarily means he was involved. but someone he knows, or someone who saw it.
7:35 am
with that said, to think this is possible that this was a random occurrence, absolutely possible. but something that would be a real coincidence. >> it's so frustrating, dan, because there's so many different scenarios as you point out. >> it's really important for the authorities to rule out everyone. they want to rule out everyone immediately in the possibility she fled. the family says, no way. and they're probably right. but the authorities want to be able to take it off the table. they want to say -- you heard the mother say how humiliating this experience was for her. they want to take that off the table. they want to be able, most importantly, i think, to take the ex off the table. and then, you start looking at the possibilities of a random crime. >> hopefully, they get some sort of break very soon. they need it. >> the key clue for now is, disappearance, the last time she was seen, and a text message. >> thanks, dan. we're going to turn, now, to the case of the missing toddler.
7:36 am
his mother may have been the last person to see the little boy. neal karlinsky has the details. >> reporter: they are the many faces of julia biryukova, a picture-perfect mom, mixed with these surveillance photos. police say these images of julia is what she looked like the morning she claimed she ran out of gas and left 2-year-old sky alone in her car. while police haven't called her a suspect in the disappearance of her son, they have questioned her credibility. police are also reviewing her only public comments since that day. these exclusive e-mails, calling her husband sadistic and deceptive. pushing abc to review her divorce documents. it seems no one is looking for the truth. she or someone using her account writing. everyone is eating up what my former husband is alleging. missing in all but one e-mail,
7:37 am
any mention of the search for sky. >> the thing that jumps out at me about the e-mails is what is not in the e-mails. limited numb were of words, they tend to be passive. she wants to blame her husband. >> reporter: and then, there's her behavior. not talking to police. and nowhere to be seen at any of the public searchs. >> anytime someone is not coming forward and expressing a desire for us to help find her child, it certainly leaves us with, what is really going on with this person? what are they really trying to hide? >> reporter: her husband, solomon, had this to say after seeing the e-mails, in which she also accuses him of something something to do with sky's disappearance. >> it's surprising. there is no there's no -- what she does, or what she thinking. >> reporter: even now, as the search continues, police believe sky's mother holds the key. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle.
7:38 am
>> this is a strange one. let's get to sam champion. >> hey, everybody. as promised. here's the northwestern storm, pounding weather in the northwest today. from that oregon and washington coastline, as well. this is driven on a powerful jet stream because of the la nina situation. the storm is stronger than normal. you're going to watch what normally is a showery situation, turn into about four inches of rain. mountain snow, i may be underdone here. i'm going one to two feet. it could be three feet of snow. and the snow line is going to change. that means there's going to be avalanche warnings. this is a rough time the next couple of days. here's where the heaviest rain is going. there's where the big storms will fire today into the deep south. and we're watching the a few spotty showers this drizzle andrwise fog and misty out there. become morel widespread by lunchtime and
7:39 am
there after we will have showers through >> and all of that weather was brought to you by target. robin? george? >> thank you, sam. coming up, justin bieber takes the test. we'll have the latest when we come back. it's here! it's here! yep! (mom) i'm o proud of you. the bus is here, gotta go mom. okay hunny, have a great day. look in your bag, ade you something.

7:43 am
his promise to take a paternity test. and andrea canning is here with the latest on where things stand. >> reporter: good morning, george. he did promise many times he would take that test. scandal has been weighing on justin bieber over the last few weeks. he clearly wants to put this behind him. but it doesn't seem to be over just yet. ♪ >> reporter: his alleged bonus baby momma may have dropped her lawsuit. but justin bieber has reportedly gone full-speed ahead with his promised paternity test. >> first up, bieber's are you my baby's daddy? >> reporter: the test was said to be taken under very controlled circumstances friday. >> the allegations were still out there. people were always going to wonder if it's possible. this is going to be conclusive ed. >> reporter: in this "extra" interview, bieber and his manager explained why he continued to take the dna test. >> just because she did it, we don't want it to make it seem like it's okay for everyone to
7:44 am
say, justin had my baby. or -- >> we've never even seen the lawsuit. we're going to get ahead of this thing and go right after it. i think it's important to hold people accountable for their actions. >> reporter: he's following in the footsteps of famous stars who fought back, like keanu reeves that took a paternity test in 2009. in 2007, chris rock was cleared as the father of a 13-year-old in georgia. not all claims are bogus. that same year, eddie murphy lost his case against melody brown. >> one thing that every heartthrob risks are the unfounded claims. people saying they had a one-night stand or a tryst. >> reporter: it's now yeater's move, who had no comment on the pop star's latest actions. her momma drama may not be over just yet. bieber has vowed to sue her over claims he fathered her 3-month-old son. >> they will vigorously pursue
7:45 am
all remedies to clear justin's name. >> reporter: at the american music awards sunday -- just 48 hours after taking the test, bieber had his girlfriend, selena gomez on his arm, and seemed to be in a good mood. a mood that will be closely watched. as it seems now, all that's left, is the waiting. justin's people wouldn't confirm to us he actually took the test. only saying arrangements had been made. yeater's attorney told us he doesn't have confirmation the tests have been taken. and he reminded us that dna from one party is not sufficient to make a paternity determination. meaning, she has to take that test, too. >> if she doesn't take it, that says a lot, as well. coming up, josh has our "play of the day." and "dancing with the stars." what does carson kressley think? is ahead.
