david kerley, abc news, washington. coming up in our next half hour, there were laughs all around at joint base andrews as president and mr. obama kicked off the 75th anniversary of the uso. what jon stewart said about donald trump and who was that guy in the beard? that's ahead in "the skinny." "shark tank's" corcoran explains her controversial tweet about yanking up skirts to get ahead. what she says moms should be telling daughters about how to get ahead in business.
3:17 am
she's one of the most famous business women in the country but barbara corcoran's latest piece of advice isn't sitting well with feminists. it's an interesting tweet.
3:18 am
she said that to succeed in a man's world, she wears bright colors and yanks up her skirt to get attention. >> now she's getting plenty of attention. and refusing to back down. abc's amy row back sat down yesterday on gma. >> i happen to have great legs. i didn't have the best face or the best body but i had great legs. if i wanted to get attention i'd make sure i'd wear my skirts really high, yank up my skirt at the midriff, and walk into a room and everybody notices me because i've got great legs. i think it's a great gimmick if you are smart enough to get attention. i don't think that's sexual in any way. but that's what makes a horse race, right? >> i think a lot of people are upset about that yanking up your skirt because it seems to imply that you're using your sexuality to get ahead in business. you say you don't apologize for that and flirting is a technique for you sometimes? >> it certainly is. and think about it, amy. what do men do? smoke cigars together, get
3:19 am
flashy in the ferrari, wearing the rolodex watch, playing golf with their bosses. they've got all the gimmicks going that make them belong and be a little different and a little bit part of the boys' club. women don't do those things. if you're attractive, it's one thing to build up your numbers in business and get a tremendous balance sheet and in the end you're judged by that in business. it has nothing to do with male or female, you're judged by your numbers. but to get to those numbers you've got to stand apart from the pack. you will never succeed being exactly like the next guy or gal because nobody will notice you and you'll never get to that juicy balance sheet that every woman out there building a business is hoping to get to. >> barbara, this is not a new message for you. you've written books. i love this title. "if you don't have big breasts, put ribbons on your pig tails and other lessons i learned from my mom." why wouldn't you tell women to use their brains instead of their breasts? >> let me tell you something. if you're not using your brains you're not going to succeed in business. it is not an easy game to build a business. you have to be thinking all the time and using every bit of
3:20 am
common sense and great intelligence to build your business. that's a given. but assuming you have five people with equal intelligence working equally hard, the person who knows to grab attention is going to be the one that gets noticed and gets put ahead. look at our phenomenal donald trump. could you even imagine, if he was saying these sound bites that he's throwing out there, if he were a woman? he'd be thrown out of the country. he's using the male macho gene all way. but no criticism on that, no. >> do you think women using sexuality is comparable to cigars and male prowess and talking about a woman's physical appearance and body parts with so many women trying to say, my looks don't define me, what do you tell your young daughter as a lot of us moms with daughters are trying to tell our daughters the exact opposite message? >> i'm sorry, i wish i would agree with you. you know how i love you so much a . i've lived in the business world my whole life.
3:21 am
i'll tell you if you can grab attention and be different from the pack, and it doesn't have to be in any sexual way. men will go out and buy a $5,000 tom ford suit to impress their friends, okay? they know they're looking good. they know they're strutting their stuff. i think it's the wrong message to tell young women they should look leek the guys. i don't think it works in business. if you're beautiful, let yourself be beautiful. i just feel like you should use whatever you've got to your own advantage. i see it as the only way to get ahead in business. >> advice from barbara corcoran. she by the way worth personally $45 million. >> you kind of have to listen to a little bit at least. >> you might not agree with it all but i think she kind of summarized it at the end. she's not saying to be sexual necessarily, just to use whatever you have to kind of grab people's attention and engage. >> it's an interesting message, especially as amy was pointing out to young girls. good on her, she's 67 years old, she has legs she is proud of,
3:22 am
working everything she can. >> working it to a $45 million net worth. why just shave, when you can choose to smooth? choose suprises over dull. choose design, over in a lull. choose for women. choose leader. choose bars. choose movement. choose delight. choose to love your knees and treat your underarms like queens. choose skin you adore. choose venus. choose more. choose to take a stand. choose to smooth. venus

3:25 am
time now for "the mix." kind of a nice touch for the gamers. a man in texas goes to a yard sale and buys a box of old video games, paid $80 for roughly 40 games. >> okay. >> one of those games, however, it turns out, was a 1987 track and field game called "stadium events." he went on google. come to find out he sold it for nearly $8,000, a collector's item. sold to it a private buyer in denton for $7,500. only 200 known copies of that video game in the world. >> very cool. >> two bucks in, nearly $8,000 out. >> you can't necessarily afford this next item. take a look at this. the most expensive airline seats you might say in the world.
