7:00 am
facility is under fire in california after a nurse there refused to give a dying woman cpr. believe it or not, she was following policy. coming up, you'll hear the emotional 911 call as the operator, the dispatcher on 911 begged that nurse to help, to no avail. >> all right. and also a championship high school basketball game, decided by a buzzer beater right there that you have to see to believe. it's a beauty. let's start this morning with that meeting of catholic cardinals taking place at the vatican. nbc's keir simmons is in st. peter's square. what can you tell us? >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning. each of the cardinals had to be sworn in before the crucial meeting could start. we're told every word is being simultaneously translated into five languages. leaders of the catholic church gathered from around the globe with the eyes of the world upon them. the decisions of the cardinals who gathered at the vatican this morning will be closely watched by more than a billion
7:01 am
catholics. many wanting change after a series of scandals. >> i can imagine these meetings getting challenging, chippy, not informal but hard hitting at certain points. >> reporter: former scottish cardinal keith o'brien would have been among them but announced his resignation last week. now in a statement he has effectively admitted inappropriate sexual contact with other priests and he apologized. the successor to pope benedict must put such things in the past. at this neighborhood church just a few miles from the vatican catholic parents know what they want from a new pope. >> i think it's important that he will be able to reach the souls of the young people. >> reporter: and already, the new pontiff's gown has been made, three vestments in different sizes, displayed by tradition in the window of the
7:02 am
papal tailor. they must find the right man to wear it. >> reporter: this morning, there is still no top candidate, not even three front runners. we're told they did have a 45-minute discussion and did discuss when the papal election should start. savann savannah? >> thank you. we are following breaking news out of london as well. the queen released from the hospital moments ago after being treated for a stomach infection. michele kosinski is at king edward vii hospital this morning. what's the latest? >> hi, savannah. we just saw the queen leave the hospital, showing everyone how strong she is. big smile, last time she was in the hospital was ten years ago and that wasn't for illness. unfortunately, after the queen's stellar diamond jubilee, action, travel and weather-packed year that she sailed through beautifully, now she is under the weather.
7:03 am
a rare state for her majesty. over the weekend at windsor castle she was suffering from gastroenteritis. an infection and inflammation of the stomach and intestine and yesterday was driven to the hospital. forcing her now to cancel a trip to rome this week. >> gastroenteritis can become a serious illness in older people or little children if they become dehydrated. the way to avoid that is to admit the patient to hospital to observe them for a night or two. >> we are used to her being stallworth getting on with it and being very healthy and sprightly and full of energy. >> reporter: not taking any chances is how royal watchers describe the decision to admit the queen to king edwards vii. the same hospital where kate was treated for morning sickness. after a prank call ended in embarrassment and the suicide of a nurse, security is tight. at once, the queen was guarded by london's tallest at over 7 feet and smallest police officers at the same time. the queen fully expected to recover just fine.
7:04 am
and keep working as she and prince philip do. >> they're in their 80s and 90s. why are they doing this much work? well, they're doing it because they want to do it. even when king philip was in hospital, he was sitting up, demanding to know why the diary had been cleared and when his next engagement was. >> reporter: the queen turned 87 next month. the palace says she is in good spirits and overall in good health. savannah? >> michele kosinski in london, thank you. let's check the other headlines in the news this morning. natalie has those for us. good morning to you. >> good morning to you guys, good morning, everyone. new turmoil this morning in pakistan. a key u.s. ally in the war on terror. a massive car bomb exploded last night outside a shiite mosque in karachi. at least 45 were killed, about 150 were wounded. this is the third major attack against shiites since the beginning of the year.
7:05 am
a tragic story overnight in brooklyn. doctors say a baby boy delivered two months prematurely after his parents were killed sunday in a car accident has lost his own struggle to survive. the parents were struck by a hit-and-run driver. police are still searching for that driver. doctors in mississippi are reporting the first known case of a toddler apparently being cured of hiv. the child born two and a half years ago was treated aggressively with drugs starting when she was just 30 hours old. experts call this a fascinating case. it could change the way infected newborns are treated. a court battle has two major retailers going head to head and drivers could see some relief at the gas pumps. cnbc's kayla tausche is at the new york stock exchange with that and more. good morning. >> good morning. executives from jc penney and macy's are duking it out in a new york courtroom. the battle is over who can carry exclusively martha stewart products. jcpenney's ceo takes the stand again today.
7:06 am
meanwhile, that pain at the pump could be easing. gas prices averaging $3.75 a gallon and up sharply since the beginning of this year, but after a record rise in february, experts say relief could be on the way. natalie? >> kayla tausche at the new york stock exchange, thank you. # in theazing buzzer beater in the high school playoff game on sunday. take a look as we watch the replay. seconds left, the player in the dark uniform there, has inbound pass is intercepted. his opponent, hoping to -- toss up a shot, it falls back in their hand bs, also the star quarterback, heaves the hail mary from beyond half court and wins the game by one point. that is amazing. >> makes sense he was a quarterback. it was like a football pass. >> there you go. >> championship on the line. that's pretty good stuff. >> exactly. >> thanks. >> you got it. >> another storm coming in as we take a look. >> watch that one more time.
7:07 am
>> one more time to relive the highlights. >> someone in the control room loves that shot. >> can you blame them? that's amazing. >> let me try that again. winter storm coming in. >> big storm? >> want to see that video again? let's show you what we've got. we are talking about winter storm warnings, blizzard warnings, winter storm watches and advisories from the dakotas all the way to washington, d.c. and the midatlantic states. here's what we've got for you. this big system coming up, it's already snowing in the dakotas, on into minneapolis. snowfall amounts, here is where things will get tricky. back to the midwest, we are pretty in agreement from six inches to a foot of snow, chicago up into minneapolis. however, as you get into the appalachians along the midatlantic states, some models show up to a foot of snow in the mountains of west virginia and virginia, but then the american model less snow and the european model even less than that. which one will come to fruition? we'll check that out as we watch the storm system make its way east. we'll get your local forecast but first this message.
7:08 am
good monday morning. we have low clouds around the bay area right now which will clear later this afternoon. over my shoulder is the storm system that will bring big changes during the day tomorrow. today we'll see gradual clearing upper 50s and low 60s outside. seven-day forecast shows the big change come tomorrow. rain and breezy conditions and as we head into wednesday, a chance of thundershowers. even snow levels close to 3,350
7:09 am
feet by the middle of the week. >> that's now to politics, no sign for compromise and the cuts known as the sequester that started going into effect over the weekend. nbc's chief white house correspondent, chuck todd is here with the latest. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. welcome to the new normal of washington budget politics 2013, where inaction leads to an actual action that nobody likes but at the same time nobody stopped, resulting in these automatic cuts known as the sequester. it's clear neither side wants to have a budget fight over the next few months as both president obama and speaker boehner waved the white flag and allowed sequestration to continue. >> these cuts will hurt our economy. >> this is not the smartest way to cut money. >> reporter: considering that nobody wanted the sequester it's striking how little was done to stop it. instead the president and the speaker of the house have seem content to simply blame each other. >> the president demanded it. >> it's happening because of a choice that republicans in congress have made. >> reporter: a sequester
7:10 am
showdown was avoided by doing nothing, allowing these automatic budget cuts to become law. when the president signed the sequester order a number of agencies across government were notified how much they have to cut. it may be months, if ever, that the public feels the direct impact of these cuts. but in a sign of political exhaustion, both the president and the speaker are signaling they won't do battle over funding government the rest of the year, taking the prospect of the government shutdown at the end of this month off the table. there's still optimism both parties can forge some grand bargain on taxes, spending and entitlements much later this year. >> i think we need to do a big agreement for the country. >> bipartisan compromise on revenue, raising tax with serious entitlement reform. >> reporter: meanwhile as republicans use the sequester debate as a rallying cry to move on from 2012, it's clear mitt and ann romney are still grab e grappling with their loss. >> obviously it was a winning campaign. it worked. >> do you think it was fair?
7:11 am
>> no. >> the president had the power of incumbency. obamacare was very attractive, particularly to those with no health insurance and they came out in large numbers to vote. >> as you can see, mitt romney joins mccain, mcgovern and others in the pantheon of defeatdefeat ed presidential candidates that took a little while longer to get over their losses, if ever. matt? >> jeb bush is the author of a brand new book called "immigration wars." governor bush, always good to have you here. >> nice to see you. >> chuck said this is the new norm in washington, dealing with sequester, the cuts went into effect, the finger pointing continues. is this the new norm? every few months, are we to see a manufactured crisis that doesn't get resolved? >> we have the continuing resolution coming up at the end of the month. and then in early may, the debt ceiling again. i view this kind of as a temporary problem in our history, but it is -- it appears to be the last two years we're
7:12 am
going there crisis to crisis to try to deal with these fiscal problems that we face. >> the cuts went into effect friday night, although they roll out over a long period of time, and yet i'm surprised there hasn't been more outrage on the part of the general public. do you think that's because people are simply numb to this by now, the dysfunction of washington or do you think there's a little case of crying wolf here, and they don't believe how severe the impact's going to be? >> there was a lot of crying wolf. >> on both sides? >> no. i think the president kind of led the charge to say that widows and orphans were going to be out on the street. when it didn't happen he actually, himself, kind of stepped back on friday to say it wasn't going to happen that way. we'll have significant cuts in defense spending and discretionary spending for sure. i think it was oversold. you're right, i think people are just numb by this dysfunction and they watch it with their peripheral vision. >> some people, senator lindsey graham, for instance, is saying we can still get a grand bargain. he wants the president and the
7:13 am
speaker to go back to where they were back in 2011 and pick that up and deal with entitlements and perhaps more revenues because of closing loopholes. should your party come to the table on the issue of increased revenues? >> you know, i think it's a little hard to imagine after january where the highest -- the biggest tax increase in american history took place and then go back to say we have a revenue problem. i think the focus -- >> no wiggle room there at all? >> there may be. if the president's sincere about dealing with our structural problems. but the thing that we could all agree on is how do we create high sustained economic growth for starters, and how can we get back to a degree of normalcy where, like, budgets are passed? i'm not talking about ten-year estimations, but going to the new normal being the house and the senate pass a budget and there's a compromise and the president signs it into law. >> this all gets to the dynamic in washington right now. you are passionate about immigration reform. you write in your book, among the many steps we need to take to restore american economic growth and prosperity, none offers a more immediate return than improving our immigration
7:14 am
system. but if we're still pointing fingers over the sequester, is there any chance that meaningful action is taken on immigration in this kind of dynamic? >> well, this is the one place where cats and dogs seem to be getting along a little more. and so i'm optimistic that there could be a consensus about going forward on immigration. it would be better to get the budget issues behind us so there could be a focus on this, and an energy policy and regulatory reform and the things that would allow us to grow at a more sustained rate. >> you're going to speak later this month before cpac. you've been invited. obviously you've got in new book out that you're talking about. it sounds like you are gearing up for a run. those are the kinds of things people do when they're increasing their public profile. are you going to run in 2016? >> that's way off into the future. i have a voice. i want to share my beliefs about how the conservative movement and the republican party can regain its footing, because we've lost our way. >> but you clearly have not ruled out -- you will not
7:15 am
definitively rule out a run for president in the year 2016? >> i won't but i'm not going to declare today either, matt. >> are you surprised that cpac did not offer an invitation to chris christie, a guy who gave the keynote speech at the republican national convention, a guy who has a 74% approval rating? why did they snub him? are you surprised by that? >> a little surprised. on the one hand he did get invited the year before and he will get elected next year when he gets re-elected for sure. i think there was some disappointment in how governor christie dealt with the budget issues related to sandy, trying to advocate his position. i can understand that. >> budget issues, not the optics of him appearing with president obama? you don't think that has anything to do with this? >> i don't think so. i think the issue of castigating the house, particularly, for not going along with a $60 billion spending deal that had very little to do witsandy recovery
7:16 am
and when it got down to funding sandy, house republicans went along with that. that's what i think was the critique. look, i love christie. i think governor christie is part of the future of the republican party for sure. whether he is going to cpac or not is not really changing that. >> i can see that in a christie campaign ad in 2016. jeb bush, "i love christie." >> i do. i love the man. >> you'll come back in our 8:30 half hour. we're going to take a lot about immigration. appreciate you being here. >> thanks. >> now here's savannah. demolition crews in florida are back at work clearing away debris from a sinkhole that swallowed a 37-year-old man in his home. nbc's gabe gutierrez is there covering the story. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. demolition crews plan to finish tearing this home down later today. this, after an emotional day for the families who lived here. as her world crumbled, janelle wheeler is also torn apart.
7:17 am
>> over 40 years of memories just gone. >> reporter: her home near tampa now deemed too unstable after a sinkhole at least 30 feet wide and 50 feet deep swallowed 36-year-old jeff bush from his bedroom and just kept growing. >> at this point, it's really not possible to recover the body. >> reporter: but on sunday, authorities recovered some keepsakes for the people who lived here. an american flag, pictures and a bible. >> god works in mysterious ways. he knew we needed this. >> reporter: florida has more sinkholes than any other state. 15,000 cases have been reported, many clustered in the central part of the state. last may this huge hole swallowed a backyard near orlando. the next month another destroyed an entire home near tampa. but they weren't nearly as bad as this 400-foot hole in 1981 that devoured homes, cars and businesses. experts say many things can
7:18 am
cause sinkholes, in florida, it's a domino effect. the state's sandy soil on top of clay supported by a deep layer of limestone can suddenly collapse due to shifts in florida's unique underground rivers. but even experienced engineers say they haven't seen one quite like this. >> the problem with this one was it was entirely within the building, so it was hidden. and so it became catastrophic. >> reporter: once the demolition is finished, crews will decide how best to fill the hole to stabilize the area. the two homes next door remain evacuated. savannah? >> gabe gutierrez, thank you very much. how terrifying, especially for people living in that neighborhood, i can imagine. >> like something out of a hollywood film. coming up, why would a nurse refuse to give a woman life-saving cpr, saying it was the facility's policy? you'll hear the troubling 911 call from this case. >> a frightening night for david

8:09 am
inside this facility in california, the 911 call comes in. >> what is the address? >> reporter: the woman is unconscious, barely breathing. >> we need to get cpr started. that's not enough. okay. >> we can't do cpr. >> then hand the phone to a passerby. if you can't do it, hand it to the passerby. i'll have her it do it. >> reporter: despite the calls for help, cpr would never be administered by glenwood gardens staff. our practice is to immediately call emergency medical personnel for assistance and to wait with the individual needing attention until such personnel arrives. that is the protocol we followed. >> she's going to die if we don't get this started. do you understand? >> i understand. >> okay. >> i am a nurse, but i cannot have our other senior citizens who don't know cpr -- >> i will instruct them. >> i will instruct them. is there anyone there -- i don't understand why you're not willing to help this patient.
8:10 am
>> i am. >> mary winters, an expert on senior care, is shocked by the company's refusal to help but she adds in california independent living facilities, unlike nursing homes, are not legally required to provide medical aid. >> it's really more like a hotel where they will offer you concierge services, you will get meals, have housekeeping. they'll change your bed. but you can't even get care in an independent living. >> reporter: the 911 call at glenwood lasted more than seven minutes. with every passing second more desperation. >> is there a gardener, a staff, anybody that doesn't work for you anywhere? can we flag someone down the street? >> as a human being, i don't -- is there anyone that's willing to help this lady and not let her die? >> not at this time. >> reporter: the elderly woman was eventually rushed to a hospital where she was pronoensed dead.
8:11 am
her daughter says she's satisfied with the care while the company says they're cond t conducting a review. >> star jones is a former prosecutor. dr. roshini raj is a medical contributor. i don't think it's possible to listen to that tape and not be shocked. this was not a woman who had a do not resuscitate order. are you shocked by the turn of events? >> it's certainly shocking when you hear a nurse say she can't perform cpr on a patient who needs it. there was a policy in place here. i don't personally agree with those types of policies but apparently the family was aware if something were to happen to this woman that they wouldn't perform cpr. >> one thing to have a policy. because this woman was a nurse, is there some higher moral responsibility? we know doctors take the hi
8:12 am
hipporatic oath. >> if the nurse was fearful she was in jeopardy of losing her job because of the policy, cpr definitely saves lives. it could, in this potential situation, save minutes. the brain starts to die after four minutes of lack of oxygen. every minute was crucial here. that's why the dispatcher was so desperate to get someone to start it. >> star, let's look at the legal issues here. number one, this was the policy of this independent living facility, not a nursing home. this was a policy that reportedly was related to anybody that stayed there. cloer clearly, they didn't want to assume the liability of performing cpr or any other care. >> every family has a right to lay out what they expect from a facility and the facility has a right to limit what they will provide. it's called informed consent, as you know. the problem then becomes, are we looking at a legal responsibility versus a social
8:13 am
responsibility. and the doctor rightly suggests she might have lost her job. think about the pr nightmare of this woman losing her job trying to help an elderly woman and prevent her from dying. >> do you see any potential legal exposure against this nurse or the clinic based on what we know of these facts? and i should add that the daughter, apparently, is not dissatisfied with what happened here in terms of the care. >> right. i'm not sure right now that the lawyers have talked to her yet. as you look at the duty of care that goes across our country, there's elder abuse laws. i'm not sure if this facility takes any medicare or medicaid funds. there are regulations that are required in that regard. i would look at all the facts before i say that this facility did the right thing. she may not go to court but she does have to go to bed at night. i'm not sure she's going to be able to sleep well. >> you are not liable, if you perform cpr in good faith on a person, i want everyone out there to know this. i don't want people to walk away
8:14 am
thinking i shouldn't perform cpr because someone might sue me. that's not the case. we have laws called good sma samaritan laws. if you attempt it in good faith to help someone you're not liable. >> dr. roshini raj and star jones, thank you for both of your expertises. we appreciate it. we will switch gears next and find out what's been spiking on google these days and what it says about you. matt goes one on one with chelsea handler. they are having a grand old time, after this. miss, this se'.

its way to the east. look for mountain snows in the midatlantic states, snow through the great lakes, upper ohio river valley, snow in the pacific northwest, rain along the california coast. plenty of sunshine and mild in and right here temperatures haven't moved much since just before sunrise. thanks to the blanket of low clouds pushed inland by that sea breeze overnight. today we'll see clearing later on. more clouds tomorrow. this is the winter storm that will bring big changes during the day tomorrow. low 60s inland. tomorrow the clouds fill in. rain returning tuesday. maybe some thunder at times for wednesday. there's a big storm approaching, don't forget, check the weather channel on cable or online. good morning, alex.
8:31 am
>> good morning. >> we know you look fabulous. >> thank you. >> you start ed at 240 pounds. how much have you lost? >> over 80 pounds so far. >> that's amazing. >> thank you. >> a lot of people leave the ranch and have trouble because they don't have that routine and discipline. you're doing better off the ranch. why do you think that is? >> i think for me it was the stress of being on the ranch, i had a lot of difficulty. once i went home, i took the game out of it and focused on me and being healthy. and that's why i was able to be so successful at home. >> confidence is something you batt battled throughout the season, comparing yourself to others. are you doing better with that now? >> yes, especially with my mom and my sister. i was 240 pounds and my mom and sister are both little. everywhere we would go, they would say your mom's so beautiful, your sister is so beautiful and i didn't feel like i was beautiful because i wasn't as small as them. >> now you're in your mom's clothes. >> we share clothes now.
8:32 am
>> in the running for the 100,000 at home. >> i'm gunning for t we'll see what happens. >> we remember from the last episode, you got on the scale, lost eight pounds. anyone would think was great. you kind of looked -- >> yes. being on the ranch there's a lot of game play that goes into it and eight poupds in the normal world, you would say, oh, my gosh, that's amazing but on the ranch i needed more than eight pounds to stay. i'm doing good at home and we'll see what happens after that. >> good luck to you. >> thank you so much. a reminder to everybody, you can catch "the biggest loser" tonight 8:00, 7:00 central right here on nbc. former florida governor jeb bush talks about immigration reform and the future of the republican party. first this is "today" on nbc.
8:33 am
8:34 am
former republican governor jeb bush has not been afraid to
8:35 am
criticize his own party's treatment of immigrants and hispanics in his new book "immigration wars." he offers his new ideas for reform and how the gop can appeal to the fastest growing minority group. along with the co-author of the book, clint bolich. nice to have you back. let's talk about mitt romney, gave his first interview post-election the other day. he talked about some of the reasons he thinks he may have lost. i know minorities, hispanics, those groups played a large role in the election. let's take a look at what he had to say. >> the weakness that our campaign had, that i had, we weren't effective in taking my message primarily to the minority voters, to hispanic americans, african-americans, other minorities. >> let's go back to 2004. your brother won 44% of the hispanic vote. by contrast governor romney won 27%. was it governor romney's fault or the party's fault? >> i think both.
8:36 am
governor romney put himself in a box in the primary by trying to out conservatives, very good conservative candidates and never really recovered from it. immigration is a gateway issue. it's not the dominant issue for asian-americans and hispanic americans but it's a gateway. if you send the message that you don't want people to be part of your team, they don't join. >> this is an alarm to your party. you called republicans tone deaf and hostile to immigrants and called the party unwilling to expand the base and warn the republicans face, your word, extinction if they continue to alienate hispanics. this damage that has been caused and inflicted, self or not, something that can be repaired in time for 2016? >> absolutely. it's not just a hispanic problem. romney got even fewer asian votes, absolutely remarkable. basically, republicans have lots in common with immigrants, a
8:37 am
desire for entrepreneurship, a desire for educational opportunities, pursuit of the american dream. it has to begin by talking to immigrants and making common cause. >> when you look at comprehensive immigration reform and look at a guy like senator john mccain, who ran into trouble out in arizona not long ago at a town hall style meeting, constituents were furious with him for his stance on this issue. how do republicans then in the coming years balance the need to expand the base, though at the same time staying true to their conservative tenants? >> whether it's immigration, tax reform, all these issues we're facing, we can't be reactionary. we have to have a positive, proactive set of policies. and we need to persuade. we need to listen to people and we need to persuade. >> when it comes to a path to citizenship, you fall short of that. >> right. >> you want legal residency and you want people to admit they've committed a crime by coming here
8:38 am
illegally to pay taxes, and fines. but you do not want to offer them a path to citizenship. if they do all the things you ask them, why not grant them that right to be an american? >> our proposal is a proposal that looks forward. and if we want to create an immigration policy that's going to work, we can't continue to make illegal immigration an easier path than legal immigration. there's a natural friction between our immigrant heritage and the rule of law. this is the right place to be in that sense. not to take away people's rights -- >> the party wants to expand its base, if i'm an illegal immigrant and i look out there at the proposals coming forward and i say, wait shall the president is offering a path to citizenship, i think, in eight years. the team of bipartisan team in the senate looking for a slightly longer timeframe than that. i look at jeb bush and he's saying, no, i don't get a pathway to citizenship. i get legal residency.
8:39 am
why do i jump on board with your proposal? >> half the people who could have gotten amnesty in 1986 didn't apply. many people don't want to be citizens to our country. they want to come here, work here, not necessarily all of them want to become a citizen. that's point number one. point number two, there has to be some difference between people who come here legally and illegally. it's just a matter of common sense and a matter of the rule of law. if we're not going to apply the law fairly and consistently, then we're going to have another wave of illegal immigrants coming into the country. >> just about a month or so ago, i talked about this group of eight senators that have come up with this bipartisan approach here. it seemed this was an area where there would be compromise and something would get done. now we bring in the sequester and other things. do you truly feel this could be accomplished in the coming years? >> absolutely. it has to be accomplished. we need an immigration policy that works. our immigration laws are over 60
8:40 am
years old right now. we need high-skilled and low-skilled immigrants. mainly, if for no other reason, to support the number of people who are retiring. we are not growing our own anymore. and so we desperately need an immigration policy that works. >> clint, governor, nice to have you here. >> thanks. >> the book is called "immigration wars." up next, we'll lighten things up a bit with the guy sitting on the couch across from us here, paul rudd is in the studio. we'll talk to him. first this is "today" on nbc.
8:41 am
8:42 am
we're back now at 8:44. paul rudd is teaming up with tina fey in "admissions." >> rudd works at an alternative high school and invites her for a recruiting visit and the two quickly realize their connection
8:43 am
goes beyond professional. >> nelson loves traveling. we've lived in indonesia, built a water purification system in myanmar. >> you're just a single dad, traveling the world with his kid, doing good? >> when you put it like that, it sounds so feeling. i have it on a t-shirt, single dad traveling the world with his kid doing good. >> i'm not sure people would believe it on me. >> paul rudd, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> first time you work with tina fey and there's a steamy shower scene. >> there is. >> are we overselling it a bit? >> no, keep going. it sounds a little sexier, actually, when you say it than it really is. >> looks totally sexy. i don't know what you're talking about. >> we shot it about 2:00 in the morning in a barn. >> really? >> freezing cold. all that steam -- >> are you using cold as the excuse? >> definitely. >> you're naked for half the
8:44 am
movie, though. >> contractually -- >> you feel naked without your mustache. >> i do. this is finally me, covering up. i feel -- just getting a look at it right -- what do you think? no? kind of yani. >> there are a lot of layers in this movie. tina plays an admissions counselor or officer. you also bring her to your school for another reason. you want her to meet one student in particular. >> that's right, yeah. there's a student played by nat wolf who has a connection, i believe, with tina and i really want them to meet. i also have a son that we travel the world. we might be going somewhere else. so there's -- this meeting is pressing. >> if you're going to give the plot away -- >> very cryptic. >> i never know what to say. >> do you get in trouble sometimes after interviews where
8:45 am
the publicist says, you can't say that? >> no, never. i just assume. i don't want to give too much away. >> the film catches the anxiety that one feels during the admissions process. were you that kind of kid when you grew up, worried about your essay and all that? >> no, no. i didn't apply to schools. i didn't -- my parents were british. they went through a different process. something with a levels and o levels. i still can't figure it out. i never applied to colleges. i wouldn't have gotten in anyway. but this, i think, does capture a little bit of that pressure. >> you have two kids. you'll get to see all that anxiety up close and personal when it comes to them applying. >> that's right. they're very young now but we're already on the proper course to be sure that they -- my daughter is 3. when i get home today, we're going over -- we're working on essays. >> good. let's talk about award seas
8:46 am
season. we saw you at the golden globes. we had dinner together. you didn't call, though. >> he called me. >> oh, really? >> this is awkward now. no, it was fun. it really was. >> it was. >> you also got to present at the awards. how was that? >> it was all right. >> there you are with melissa mccarthy. one of the recipients you presented an award to wore a kilt. >> yeah. that's great. i love kilts. >> it looks great. >> it does. he was on my best dressed list. for brave it made a lot of sense. >> it makes you part of a very small club, guys who presented academy awards to men wearing kilts. >> who else is in that club? >> i don't know. as i said, it's a very small club. tina fey and amy poehler, should they host the academy awards? >> they would be great. everyone knows they would be great because they're both great. i don't know. that's pressure. it seems like kind of a tough gig, isn't it?
8:47 am
have they said whether or not they want to do it? >> i think tina said no way in hell or something like that. we can't let you go without asking you about "anchor man:the sequel." you're starting to shoot it now. hence, the stache. >> that's why i have this. it's been several years, but it's so fun and exciting. >> the look. >> it's pretty great, i got to say. we had a blast on the first one so we're all excited about this one. >> we're pretty excited to have you here. "admissions" opens march 22nd. nice to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> tina fey will be here tomorrow. >> say hi for me. >> i will. we'll get the scoop on you, by the way. taking the planning out of your meals. first this is "today" on nbc.

home" seven kitchen items tos to right now. with a quick look or a sniff and a cringe, you can tell pretty easily when some foods are past their freshness date, but others are less obvious. the host of financially fit on yahoo! is here to tell us what to look for. >> good morning, willie. >> you have rocked my world, these are staples of diets, thing like cold pizza. people want to make food last. but there are dangers to that. >> you don't want to get any food borne illnesses because when you get sick that's more money you have to take care of yourself. the morning latte, fig you're putting milk in, be cautious. i have been guilty of nursing a la latte into lunch. toss it after an hour. milk is pasteurized, so you may not smell anything fishy, but probably not a good idea to
9:14 am
drink it. >> what if i had a minifridge at work, can i put it in the refrigerator? >> sure. if warmer the room, if the cup is exposed the bacteria will rapidly develop. >> eggs, you feel look looking it a it's okay to keep them a while. they feel self-sealed. >> even though it says use by date, it's good for a few weeks after that. there's no scent or odor, so you take an egg, you just put it in the water. and see what happens. if it sinks to the bottom like this egg is, then that means it's a good egg. if it floats, then it's bad egg because eggs are very porous. the more air that's in the egg, then you know it's a bad egg. if it was resting on the tip up, then it's probably good to eat
9:15 am
that sooner rather than later. >> i know it probably varies from egg to egg or certain kind of eggs, but is there a rule for how long to keep an egg around? >> you know what, my producer and i did the test on the show and we had one three months after the use by date and it was still good. so you have to the test. to keep your eggs fresh, keep them in a dark area in the back of the refrigerator so they're not exposed to the open and shut of the fridge. >> everybody has a big spice rack. they're dry. so you can keep it forever. >> you got them years ago, and you have the ground cumin. spices don't necessarily spoil, but they lose their strength and lose their flavor over time. rule of thumb, ground spices like cumin and cinnamon, discard after one year. whole spices, discard after two years. whole roots like ginger, you want to discard after three years. so put some dates on the top

of -- >> i'm smiling because i have spices in my home that are antiques from my college. you're killing me with this. you're killing me. >> we have all done this. raise your hand if you had leftover pizza in college. >> college? this weekend. >> so rule of thumb, any leftover meats and cheeses that have been left out for more than two hours, discard. if you're not going to eat it right away, put it in airtight tupperware. then zap it when ready to eat it. >> as long as it's sealed, you can do the cold pizza? >> for three or four days, then zap it. don't eat it cold. >> this is important when talking about babies. >> this babies are us susceptib to food borne diseases. so you want to take a spoon, take a portion, put it in a clean bowl. don't double dip into the food jar and serve the baby because the bacteria from the saliva to
9:17 am
the jar can be a risky thing. feed your baby from the jar -- from the bowl as you see here. and whatever food is left in this jar can be in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. after that, discard it. this can be sitting at room temperature for and about two hours like that pizza before you want to discard it. >> put it in a second container. >> so you avoid this from getting contaminated. >> this is a big one. sponges. which are magnets for bacteria. >> we're washing the surface of the sink. a study found your sponge is the germiest item in your entire home, more than your toilet seat cover. >> really? disgusting. >> discard after two weeks. zap it in the microwave for two minutes on high. you have a germ free one. >> you can get one with handle so you don't have to touch it.
9:18 am
i think we have a chipped plate. that's a problem? >> because you have broken the sanitary seal in the plate and washing it with soap or a sponge won't remove the bacteria that's embedded in the plate. your best defense is to throw it out. >> even with the smallest chip? >> sometimes it's the smallest chip that gets you the biggest bacteria problem. >> i learned a lot here. thanks. great to see you. still to come, the anticipated facebook game today. we'll get a first look at it. it first these messages. honey!. first these messages. we're pregnant! what? we're pregnant! we're pregnant? yeah! you're going to be a mom! you're going to be a dad! there's a little baby in there? there's a human being growing inside your stomach? yeah! now what? i don't know? what? introducing huggies mommy answers. the best advice in one place.

perfect. >> you're saying we have to open our minds, consider different people out there for us potentially. >> more than one person may be great for you. if you're not giving yourself a chance to date people from different backgrounds, if you're thinking my guy has to go to this school, have this background, you'll never find them. >> we all have that friend who has that list and she checks it off and says that's a deal breaker. you say don't take those lists too far? >> they're too long and they're not prioritized. if you have a list, you need to dwooit divide it into two. here are the things you need. here are the things you want, right? >> right. >> the wants could be the looks and something like that. but the needs could be something important, like if you're divorced and have children, you need someone who likes kids, who likes pets. you want someone who is 6'3", you want someone who graduated from harvard, but what if they graduated from yale? you won't date them now? some of the things we use are silly when we really prioritize
9:39 am
what's important for the relationship. >> next you suggest that some women kiss some frogs. we're not talking literally here, obviously. what do you mean by this, though? >> we see people as frogs or princes and forget about all the stuff in the middle. it's not just mr. right. it's mr. right for you. what we found in the research is that it's values that connect people not these other surfacey things. you need to think about what will make this person a better match for me and being willing to try other people and different backgrounds and trying different things. you never know what's out there. if you have such a specific list of things you're looking for, you're not going to find that guy. you're going to end up alone. >> and sometimes it takes opening your mind a little bit, meeting somebody new who has a different perspective that could completely change your own. >> we're not talking about settling. we're saying, hey, why does it have to be just like this specific picture that you drew? you will be surprised to discover that someone who doesn't look like you thought they would look or is from where you thought they would be from is such a great match for you.
9:40 am
>> you say you're not lowering your standards here, don't lower your standards but looking for that mr. perfect is not necessarily going to always work out. >> no. if you're constantly seeking perfection, you're going to be disappointed, they're going to be disappointed. the problem comes in, people really believe if you're not this exact way, it won't work. a recent study came out in the journal, communication in society and it found that married women who believe in these tv portrayals were less satisfied with their relationship. and then looking for other -- >> for romance and butterflies constantly. >> looking for other partners, less committed to the relationship. you'll be unhappy even in the relationship you're already in if you get caught up in that. >> embrace those imperfections and don't look for mr. perfect? >> no. no one is perfect. >> michelle callahan, thank you very much. good advice. classic southern cooking from a grammy country star who

10:45 am
and the sad times more bearable. when my father died, i was only 8 years old and well-meaning adults tried to comfort me with an extra scoop of ice cream or grandma's rice pudding. food became my escape. i learned to hide my pain behind a bag of chips or cookies and i became addicted to all things sugary. i went back to college at 42, and by the time i had graduated, i weighed 428 pounds. i could barely walk across the stage to receive my diploma. i was in constant physical pain and was diagnosed with rheumatoid athletes. before long i became dependent on a cane and then a walker to get around. one morning i woke up, and i decided i no longer wanted to li like an invalid. i dumped the bottles of soda into the sink, emptied my sugar bowl in the trash and began to count calories. at first i told no one about my efforts, but once i made that decision, i never looked back.
10:46 am

10:47 am
210, but even better, a regular pear, 100 calories. then when she was cooking, she would take the oil. she would pour it right into the pan. >> glug, glug. >> it would be about two table spoons. 340 calorie brz you add the food. now a mister. she just spraz it right on. i didn't pump it. you know, it's about a teaspoon, and covers the whole surface. only 40 calories. >> let's meet her. i can't wait. >> here is theresa's picture before. all right, theresa. come join the joy fit club. >> come on, girl. >> oh, my god. >> are you kidding? >> no. you are kidding. >> oh, my gosh. >> wow. oh, my gosh. scloo look at that waistline on you. >> you are unbelievable. >> bombshell. >> how long did it take you from the day you made that decision to lose all the weight? >> about 22 months. it was two years on friday. >> congratulations. >> you said -- joy was saying the treadmill, so you get moving on that.
10:48 am
is that the exercise you get? >> i do now. november 1st was the first time i stepped on a treadmill. >> at first how difficult was it for you? >> well, i had a dress and high heels on the treadmill at my college where i work, and i walked down and said will you show me what this is about? that's the first thing i said. where is the seat belt? i got on that, and i walked and i walked and i walked and i felt like i was running a marathon. >> you know what, that's incredible. i love that you made the decision one day. you didn't tell a soul, and then you just took it and ran with it. >> people don't even recognize her now. >> i bet. what do people say when they see you if they haven't seen you in a while? >> they don't know who i am. when i go home at christmas or the holidays, people that i went to church with every day, people that i worked with, people that knew me, they don't know who i am. >> what do they say when they realize it's you? >> it's a miracle. >> it's a miracle. >> same thing i say. >> thank you. >> nice to meet you. congratulations. >> all right.
