good morning, america. i'm robin roberts. >> and i'm chris cuomo. it's friday, july 30th. >> this morning, breaking news. another wildfire exploding overnight in southern california. torching buildings. forcing evacuations of more than 1,000 homes. one of the most powerful democrats in congress now facing an ethics trial. will charlie rangel bring his whole party down in front of the critical midterm elections? we'll ask the white house. here comes the bride. chelsea clinton steps out on the eve of her wedding day. we'll tell you more about the guests, the chefs and the fireworks. "american idol" disclose.
who will replace them? could j. lo be on the top of the list? and the black eyed peas live. let's get it started, right here. and a good friday morning to everyone. george is getting a little head start to the weekend. chris cuomo is back with us today. good to have you back, chris. >> and the sun is out. >> i know. yesterday, we were blaming you for the rain. you brought the sun with you. glad you did. we're going to get to the breaking news on the fires in a moment. forcing so many mandatory evacuations this morning. we also have the latest on this killer bear near yellowstone. we reveal the csi methods that led hunters to the bear. and the emotional fate of what should happen to her and her cubs. we hear from yet another survivor this morning. we'll also go live to
rhinebeck, new york. the small town hosting chelsea clinton's big day. it's the day before the wedding. we have all the last-minute details, including what the bride will be wearing. and who is on the elusive guest list. >> we'll talk about that much later. we begin with the breaking news. the massive wildfire near los angeles, that exploded overnight. clayton sandell is there and has the latest for us. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, the very real concern at this hour is that flames are getting dangerously close to thousands of homes in this area. 2,000 homes have been evacuated since the fire started on thursday afternoon. and you can see, from some of our video overnight, just how close the flames have come to some of these houses. we also have reports that some houses have been burned overnight. although, the fire department will not have an exact count until the sun comes up and they can get a better count. right now, this fire has burned more than 4,500 acres. at this point, it is 0% contained.
but there are 500 firefighters on the scene. and this morning, they're hoping to change that. >> they're doing all they can. we know that, clayton. earlier this week, you showed us the brittal conditions when you were covering another fire. are officials out there bracing themselves for more? >> reporter: they are. there's two, main problems. we've had a wet spring in california. you have a lot of plant growth. when summer comes, it dries out and becomes fuel. we're getting good wind gusts. 20-mile-per-hour to 30-mile-per-hour this morning. that means that not only will the firefighting aircraft be less e fengtive. it's just going to push the flames higher. >> it will, unfortunately. clayton sandell. thanks for your report this morning. chris? pressure is mounting this morning on the democratic party, just months from the critical midterm elections. the latest blow is the ethics scandal involving one of the most powerful players on capitol hill, new york congressman charles rangel. jonathan karl joins us from washington. he has the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning,
chris. the ethics charges against rangel are scathing. they accuse him of a pat herb of disregard for the laws of the united states and the rules of the house. charlie rangel continues to insist he's never intentionally broken the rules. charges have clearly hit home. >> it's a tough morning for me and my family. but we'll get through this. >> reporter: in exhaustive detail, the committee outlines 13 counts against rangel. from failing to pay taxes. to abusing his position on the powerful ways and means committee. republican leaders blame the rangel mess on nancy pelosi, who, four years ago, promised -- >> we will make this the most honest, ethical, and open congress in history. >> this isn't about charlie rangel. this is about speaker pelosi's most glaring promise that she's broken. >> reporter: rangel, a long-time ally of speaker pelosi. but she made no attempt to
defend him. >> the chips will fall how they will be. but ethical standards is a top priority for us. >> reporter: a few weeks ago, party leaders were furious, when robert gibbs said republicans could win back the house. now, there's science that gibbs was right. democrats are bracing for a political tsunami this fall. house republicans are planning to buy tv ads to defendant 50 of their seats. on "top line," even the party chairman acknowledged the tough hill for democrats. >> there's a lot of seats in jeopardy and that folks are going after. >> reporter: the biggest problem for democrats is the one they can do the least about, the economy. today, president obama will highlight a rare good news story. signs the american auto industry is making a comeback. he'll visit chrysler and ford plants that are still open, thanks to the administration's auto bailout. the white house is bracing for some not-so-good economic news later this morning when the
commerce department releases its report on second-quarter economic growth. it is expected to show that the economy is growing. but growing very slowly. chris? >> all right. thank you, jon. congress is heading into its august break. but there is no break in the political turmoil. the economy, an ethics scandal, fears the democrats could lose control of congress. so, for more on all of this, let's turn to the white house. we have the press secretary, mr. robert gibbs. thank you for joining us, mr. gibbs. let's take these on in order, starting with the economy. the president is off to michigan today. there is some bad news that will be joining him. the economy does not seem to be expanding. the unemployment rate seems as though it will stay where it is all year. what is the good news he can deliver there? >> well, the good news that the president will talk about today is in the auto industry. chris, an investment had to be made in the auto industry. restructuring had to happen. and now, for the first time since 2004, all three of the big three auto companies showed a
profit in the first quarter this year. and instead of shedding jobs, more than 300,000 last year, the year before the president came in, the auto industry, for the first time in more than a decade is expanding. so, there is good news. the economic recovery is certainly fragile. but, chris, if we look back to the last six months of 2008, where we were losing 3 million jobs in that six months, we've actually added jobs in the six months -- the last six months of this administration. >> true. and yet, going into an election, people are going to be looking at where the jobs are going. you mentioned the auto industry. but the headline seems to be the big banks. they're getting their millions again. and yet, the unemployment rate is stagnant. people are hurting. and you know this. how does the president, how does his party, stand up to that scrutiny? >> what the president talks about is the fact that we have instituted on wall street, the toughest set of financial regulations that the industry has seen since the great depression. we did that without a lot of help from our friends in the
republican party. and we're working each and every day to add jobs. >> and as we head into these elections, obviously, it will come down to the politics. you're dealing with a situation right now with congressman rangel. do you believe or do you fear, that he's going to be used as the poster child for being in bed with the special interests? >> well, look. there's a bipartisan committee in the house that are looking into some very serious charges. we believe that's the right course. and we're not going to prejudge the outcome of that trial. >> if it comes out the way it looks right now, will the president take a stand, a leadership position, demanding action on behalf of congressman rangel that he step down? that he define what this party's supposed to be about going into the elections? >> i feel confident that this party and this president have a record on ethics. ethics reform, and taking on the special interests. and we're happy to put in front of the american people in november. >> with all the sensitivity
about with banks right now and charlie rangel allegedly taking money from the big banks for his city college foundation, now, you're looking at the midterms. you know it's just 39 seats. you've been talking about how this could be a risky midterm election. what do you think this means for the democrats? >> well, look. i think right now, democrats are running better campaigns than the republicans are. i think this november is going to come down, quite frankly, chris, to a choice. do you want to continue to move forward and make progress as we have in the obama administration? or do you want to go back to the economic policies that got us into this mess? i think it's a simple choice come november. i think democrats will be successful and we'll keep the house and the senate. >> quick question. obviously all of congress is worried on the democratic side of losing seats. but from the president's perspective. you work with the president. would having a divided congress really be so bad to him? might it be a blessing in disguise for him to have someone else to blame going into his election? >> well, chris, nobody here at the white house believes that. i think the president has a plan
for getting this country back on its feet again. we need as many people in congress that support that agenda to create jobs, to help small businesses expand, to give people opportunity to go to college again. that's the agenda the president has. and he hopes that, come next november and certainly next year, when we swear in a new congress, that there's a majority of those that support that agenda. >> all right. mr. gibbs, thanks for taking the opportunity this morning. we appreciate it. >> thanks, chris. >> robin? we want to turn and bring in the newest member of the abc family. the new host of "this week," making her debut on sunday, christiane amanpour. welcome. good to have you onboard. >> it's great to be onboard. >> i know you have two exclusives for us on sunday. you're going to sit down with speaker nancy pelosi. you'll have a lot to talk to her about, especially on the heels of the charlie rangel ethics scandal. we know what she said to drain
the swamp of corruption in washington. but that is just one of her many concerns, right? >> well, that's exactly right. and we will, obviously, ask her about that. we'll also be asking about some of the other issues you just raised, which is how they will be going competitively into the midterm elections. but beyond that, i'm also very interested in how the policies of the government are going to be implemented for the american people. and i think that's an area of really important investigation for the american people. and we'll be asking her about the big issues that need to be grappled with for the people of this country. >> and people are eager to hear what she has to say about that. your other exclusive is with defense secretary robert gates. and this is on the heels of what happened this week. the 90,000 documents that are really detailing what is going on, perhaps, in the afghan war. and he broke his silence this week, calling the leaks, quote, dangerous for our troops, our allies and our afghan partners. and when he said that, talking
about the afghan partners, that raised a lot of eyebrows. >> well, it did. and what he really means is, as, perhaps, we all look at what's going on in those leaks. and we see, perhaps, less and less news in them, the actual effect of what they have done on the ground is what's concerning the pentagon. and the diplomats and allies all over the world. because, they're very concerned that releasing the names of afghans who cooperate with the united states or with the nato forces is simply going to be a death threat. and having covered this war, having covered the iraq war, certainly, we know when names of either iraqi translators or afghan people, tribes people who are released, they are subject to intimidation and worse from the taliban. whether it was the al qaeda forces in iraq. this is a very, very legitimate concern. and even the president of afghanistan has come out and said the release of their names is shocking.
>> you have spent a lot of time in afghanistan. is there concern that the president may change his war plans because of this breach? >> i don't know about changing the war plan. i have spoken to a pentagon official who is talking about how they are trying to figure out whether they will have to change the amount of intelligence that they push down the lines. that they push down from headquarters right to the front lines, to enable the soldiers and others who are fighting the war, to know, you know, what's going on. that's going to be something they're going to have to look at. and also, obviously, they're concerned that it affects their ability to share information with allies. and all of that. and the allies are going to be compromised, as well. going to, perhaps, reconsidering sharing information with them. these are big questions that are going to be in play right now. >> well, you are hitting the ground running. thank you and welcome again to the abc family. thanks so much. and you can see all of her debut as anchor of "abc's this week,"
with house speaker pelosi and defense secretary gates, this sunday morning. check your local listings. now juju chang has the other news for us. >> good morning, robin and chris. we're getting word about breaking news overseas. at the u.s. embassy in paris, reuters is reporting that three embassy employees are being treated for poisoning after opening mail in the building. the specific type of poisoning and the seriousness of their condition are not yet clear. there's been no comment from the embassy there. we'll keep you posted as we learn more. the showdown over arizona's new immigration law is inflaming tensions around the country. protests spread from phoenix to los angeles, to new york thursday. dozens were arrested. arizona's governor has appealed a judge's ruling that blocks key parts of the law from taking effect. the judge has received several death threats, which the u.s. marshals are now investigating. many fishermen are getting back to work today. for the first time since they were sidelined by the bp oil spill. louisiana has now lifted a ban, reopening commercial fishing areas east of the mississippi

attack near yellowstone. interesting. they used csi methods to lure the bears back. now, controversy about what should happen to the momma bear and her cubs. >> yeah. >> it could get a little tragic. >> it could do that, chris. thanks. we're going to start with the news overnight about one of the country's most popular television shows. "american idol" announced that both ellen degeneres and kara dioguardi will not be coming back next season. and wait until you hear about their replacements. >> reporter: "american idol" judge ellen degeneres says she is leaving the show after one season. staying in a statement, a couple months ago i let fox and the "american idol" producers know this didn't feel like the right fit for me. she later tweeted, dim the lights. i voted myself off "american idol." when she first started, viewers looked for tensions between her and veteran judge, simon cowell. what they got was a seeming lovefest. >> so, this is it, huh? i come on, you leave?
>> reporter: simon cowell left the show last may to work on the american version of "the x-factor." he wished her the best. telling "the hollywood reporter," quote, i have huge respect for her. she's always been in control of her own destiny. tmz is reporting that music industry veteran, kara dioguardi has been fired after only two seasons. it is rumored that jennifer lopez, who has appeared on "idol" before, is inking a deal to replace her. and tmz.com also posts that aerosmith's steven tyler will take the third judge slot. randy jackson is the only original judge left. it's no surprise "american idol" is making changes. they have watched viewership drop almost 20% from the year before. it's a game of musical chairs on a show that's supposed to be about music. >> kind of saw this coming, as vinita said because it's still very popular because the ratings have been going down. and with simon gone, you have to do something. >> true.
they have to figure out what that is. let's switch garies to the deadly bear rampage near yellowstone park. they used csi tricks. and hunters captured the grizzlies that are believed to be responsible for the attack. the question is, what happens to that momma bear now and her three cubs? ryan owens is in cooke city, montana. he has the latest. ryan? >> reporter: hey, chris. good morning to you. believe it or not, they are using dna tests to be certain they have the right bear. and if they do, it will be put to death. the question is, what about those cubs? turns out, mom may not be the only one to die. inside one of these traps sits the nearly 400-pound female grizzly that wildlife officers believe mauled three campers, one fatally. she got caught by returning to the scene of the crime less than a day after 48-year-old kevin hammer was found dead. dragged 25 feet from the tent where he slept. >> we won't be satisfied until
we prove that we have the right bear and we catch all the cubs. we have every one. >> reporter: the bear will be put to death. and officials fear the same fate awaits her cubs. since they likely learn predatory behavior by watching their mother. 21-year-old ronald singer was the first victim of that behavior. he woke up to the grizzly biting his leg. >> about 2:00 in the morning, i felt the entire tent just fly two or three feet. and noticed something was attached to my leg. and just punched it a couple times. it didn't make a noise until it backed up. and it growled. it took off into the bushes. >> reporter: but not before several witnesses called 911. >> my daughter's boyfriend got bit by a bear just a little bit ago. there's another lady down there that's screaming. i don't know if she got bit or not. >> and it was a bear? >> it was a bear. and they mauled the tent. and we're at the super8 right now. i don't know where to go with him or what.
>> okay. is the bear still tearing down tents? >> well, uh, i was helping him. and i heard her start screaming. so, he's still there somewhere. >> reporter: how lucky do you feel that you're still here? >> i feel lucky that i'm here. that the wounds aren't more. i'm the least affected by it. the other lady, she's going to have a horrible time with that arm now. >> reporter: still, experienced camper, deb freele, knows it could have been worse. >> you can play dead. so, i did. >> reporter: this morning, crews are taking extraordinary measures to make sure this is the right bear. taking saliva samples from the bite wounds. hair evidence from the tent and clothes of the victims. later today, they expect to know if the dna is a match. and while we wait for that dna
testing, the evidence is mounting that this is, in fact, the right bear. authorities, now, a piece of a tooth in some of the tent and some of the wreckage from one of the mauls. and, chris, we're told that does match this bear. >> quite an investigation. ryan, thanks for the reporting. let's turn to chris servine. he joins us from missoula, montana. good morning, sir. good to have you with us. >> good morning. >> let's go to how you were able to track this bear. using parts of the tent. it sounds sophisticated. how did you do it? >> this bear, if it was a predatory bear, it's likely to return to the site because it received a food reward and a meal after eating this individual. when the bear was trapped, we used parts of the sleeping bag that he was in and his tent. put several traps in the area. and the bear returned to the trap with parts of the sleeping bag and the tent in it. went directly to that trap and went into it.
>> now, the big question becomes, what do you do about the momma bear? and more sensitively, what do you do about the cubs? one of them may still be out there. what's your answer? >> well, the mother bear will be put down. we want to do an investigation and autopsy on this bear to see whether there's any organic problem with the animal. what caused this behavior. as for the young bears, we will put those in some type of a facility, like a zoo. we have several zoos that are interested in bears. and we'll place those cubs in some facility somewhere. so, they'll probably live out their lives in a zoo somewhere. >> so, the speculation -- >> one of these -- >> go ahead, please. continue, sir. >> there's one of the offspring that's still loose right now. and they're trying to trap it. and we should be able to pick that bear up today. and once those young bears are captured, then we'll place them in some zoo facility. >> the speculation we had heard, mr. servheen, that there was
some socialization, with bears, grizzly see, grizzly do, that the yearlings would pick up the behavior, as well. you're saying they can live somewhere else? >> yeah. when they're in a zoo situation, they're not in a situation where they can approach people, as in the wild. we would never release these young bear into the wild again. but they can be placed in a zoo and live out their lives in a zoo. and be an educational tool for people to understand more about bears and what's needed for their conservation. >> how about that as a last question here. what do we know for sure about why bears attack? do they have to be provoked? are they just lured by food? is there any lesson here? >> well, we look at behaviors in bears. and we look at different types of aggression. we have natural aggression, where embassy are defensive of their young. defensive of a food source. or a surprise encounter. if you're hiking down a trail and run face-to-face with a
bear. all those are called natural aggression. a bear in a situation like that is trying to neutralize the person close to them and leave the area right away. this case appears to be a case where the animals enter the campground with the express intent of killing and eating a person. and this is a very, very unusual type of behavior for bears. it's not unheard of. but it's very, very rare. >> and, obviously, when it does happen -- >> grizzly bears and black bears. >> when it happens, it causes a stir. thank you for the information. we appreciate it. >> you're welcome. what do you think of all this? if you want more information about what you should do when you're out there in the wild with bears, please, go to abcnews.com/gma. and you can weigh in on everything that's been going on on the shoutout board. it's time, now, for the weather. that means, sam champion. he's in central park with all those people, ready to have fun. black eyed peas. >> good morning, chris. >> how are you doing, sam? >> look at this crowd.

were detained by iranian authorities. protests are planned in ten cities, from vancouver to houston. the three moms are planning to attend one just a few hours from now, here in new york, outside iran's permanent mission to the u.n. iranian authorities have indicated the trio will be tried for espionage. as of now, the three haven't even been charged. here's a look back at their story. the three americans were in this popular hiking area of iraq, when they accidentally crossed the border into iran, last july. since then, sarah shourd, shane bauer and josh fattal, have been held here. sarah, in solitary confinement. their moms devote themselves 24/7, to this mission. this past may, they were finally able to see their children, in an emotional, yet all-too brief reunion. but that was two, long months ago. and we're joined, now, by the three moms. cindy hickey, shane's mom.
laura fattal, josh's mom. and lora shourd, mom of sarah. thank you for being here. for the one year they've been in prison, you've had bun phone call and one visit. but we understand you haven't had information since may. >> we left may 21st. saw the doors close on our kids. and we haven't heard anything sense. no news on the case. no access by the lawyer. >> and when you say case, there's no formal, criminal charges. and yet, they've been held for a year. >> we've asked over and over again, a recent letter to the head of the judiciary of iran, to please look at our kids' case and recognize and let them speak for themselves, if they need to go to court. >> and i know, nora, this is difficult for you. i know the two men are held together. and your daughter is often alone and facing some medical issues. >> yeah. it's really disturbing. sarah's been in solitary confinement for a year now, or nearly a year.
which, as a mother, is very difficult for me to think of on a daily basis. it's all i can think of. she has medical problems, which are not being addressed. they're being neglected. she hasn't really been seen the way she should be seen. these are fairly serious things. and they're ignoring this. you know, we need to get these kids out so they can be taken care of and have their needs met. >> and what message do you three have for the iranian president? for the iranian authorities, on the one-year anniversary? >> we think one year is more than enough. this is a ridiculous, outrageous, unethical, unnecessary detention. >> tell me a little bit about the emotional rollercoaster that this year has been for you. >> well, the rollercoaster happens within a day. we're up and down constantly. so, we wait and wait. and we hear some inkling that maybe something's going to happen. and then, it doesn't. it's the rollercoaster is severe. it's affected our lives, totally. >> and no plans to go back to
iran anytime soon? >> you know, we don't want to go back unless we're going back to pick up our kids at this point. this is the important thing for us. it's way pastime. this is way overdue. there's no reason to hold them anymore. we're calling on the government of iran to let them go immediately. >> our thoughts are with you. thanks again. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> stay with us. we'll be back. excuse me... this is yours... thank you! you're welcome. with chase freedom you can get a total of 5% cash back in your pocket. fun money from freedom. this is yours! thank you! what? that's 5% cash back in quarterly bonus categories all year long. does your card do this? sign up for this quarter's bonus today. chase what matters. go to chase.com/freedom. crafted to be exceptionally smooth... decadently rich... delightful... chocolate... bliss.

v.i.p.s to arrive. they're supposed to be coming in tonight for the rehearsal dinner, which is at the nearby grassmere estate. we're told it will be inside a barn. and the invitation saying for the guests to wear country chic. we also learned while this is about two hours from new york city, that a number of helicopter pads at estates in the area have been secured so the v.i.p.s can fly in. they will be ushered by car, to a number of the hotels, like the one i'm standing in front of. and they will be brought in through the back doors, in the kitchen, to keep this event very private. we're learning more details about the wedding itself. one of the caterers is one of oprah's favorite chefs. and the cake is going to be vegan and gluten-free, if you can imagine that. we also heard that they're planning a giant, massive, kind of fireworks display for the end of the ceremony tomorrow night. and that may, robin, actually be the only kind of confirmation we
have because this whole thing is still so super secret. kind of top squirrel situation. >> yeah. they have tried their best to keep everything so secret. you know, sharyn, that looks country chic, what you're wearing right now. i don't know. but i'll check with somebody who does know. thank you very much, sharyn. we appreciate it very much. we're going to talk more about this. and i think somebody who knows about country chic and so much more, is editor in chief of "brides" magazine. you know everything there is to know about weddings and fashion. also joining us is anita mcbride. you remember her as social secretary under george w. bush. anita, it's great to see you, again, too. what is country chic? >> that's a good clue. it says this wedding is going to be dressed up but laid back. not fussy. not long gowns. don't bring out all the diamonds. just dress up. but be prepared to have a good time. >> not fussing. >> the guys might be in tuxedos.
you might see people do dress up/dress down. you'll see a mix. >> you said not fussy. but this is reported to cost between $3 million and $5 million, for this wedding. >> it's true. so much of that, really, is going into what we're seeing. like the tents. those are major tents going up, with glass windows and air conditioning. and all the people behind it, who have to make that happen. 500 guests. feeding them. there's a lot of hard costs with this, in addition to labor. >> give us a feel about what we could possibly see. what the guests will be seeing. you know the wedding planner, very well, right? brian? >> brian raffanalli will make it personal. he likes to channel what's special about the couple. he'll do that for chelsea and marc, too. all we're seeing on the outside is fairly what you see for a big wedding. it's what they do together that he'll bring out on the inside. so, maybe that will be they'll write their own vows. or they'll have a special song. or you can bet the president
will play the saxophone at some point. there will be some family moment. >> all right. anita, you were the chief of staff for former first lady, laura bush. and you were involved when jenna bush got married. you knew the details of the wedding planning. and what is different when you have dignitaries involved in a big day like this, anita? >> well, let's remember, robin, of course, the only v.i.p. in this wedding celebration is the bride and the groom. so, that's your number one dignitary. of course, when you're handling this number of people and the special requirements to bring in folks who are celebrities around the country, it takes some real coordination. so, a magnificent wedding planner will be a big help. of course, at the end of the day, it's what the bride wants. and her wishes will be what's followed in this. >> i'm glad you said that, anita. that is so true. when it boils down to it, it's the bride and groom. they are truly the v.i.p.s.
the people that will be coming and attending, anita. tell us about having to unwrap the wedding gifts because of security in that. what's involved? >> i think whenever -- of course this, is a different venue. but there's obviously a lot of security to protect the protectees, which is the former president of the united states, and, of course, the secretary of state. so, there will be some requirements that have to be followed. as far as bringing gifts, i think the best advice you can give your guests, is send the address you would have been given to provide your gifts to the bride and groom. and not to bring them to a venue like this because they will more than likely have to be brought to a separate location and opened later and handled later. and not exactly be given to the bride and groom. >> you know, aneat tashgs i think that's good advice for any wedding. >> that's right. >> absolutely. but somebody does bring it to the wedding, you have to be prepared. but you're right.
leave them home. mail them later. >> quite a different scene when bill and hillary clinton got married back in the day. we have wedding photos from their big day. it was a simpler -- a simpler time. >> completely. it was a simpler time. hillary bought her dress at dillard's. it was a jessica mcclintock. that was a hippie era, anyway. weddings today are very, very personal. they're driven by the bride and groom. we see dhax are works of art. flowers that are also works of art. invented menus. and all kinds of personal touches. that's why the cost and the details add up. there's more people involved. >> sure. >> it was a different time. >> it was a different time back then. how about the photos? i know you went through this, too, anita, when jenna was married. everyone wants to have that first photo of the couple. >> sure. that's wonderful. everybody will be waiting to see that. you know, this is a young woman who has lived a low-key life, with high-profile parents.
people have watched her around the country grow up. in a lot of ways, as they watched jenna and barbara bush. they knew these girls from when their grandfather was vice president. there's a certain interest that we all have. and i hope we're respectful as americans to remember this is private. but we all will be looking to see what's the photo of the happy couple with their four, very proud parents. so, i'm sure that chelsea's going to make a wonderful selection of the photo that she would like released for people to see. she understands that, i'm sure, the interest that people have in her life. but still, has been able to maintain quite a wonderful and private life. >> i don't know how she does it. but she has been able to do that. anita, it is always so good to see you. thank you very much. >> thank you, robin. >> and, nelly, thank you for being with us. >> thank you. >> this is the 25th wedding anniversary. i think it's appropriate for this segment, that we have a happy couple behind us. we'll see what happens, the big day. all right.

all right, now. i'm actually sitting next to a green beret named terry shappard. i'm afraid to discuss this subject.. shark week's coming up. we heard of 3 reports of sharks 100 feet off the coast of cape cod. what do we do? how do we stay safe? the discovery channel found a man smart enough, brave enough, to go in after the sharks. take a look. no, it's not a scene from "jaws." it's shark week. and green beret terry shapper shows the world how to survive shark attacks, by making himself shark bait. in shark-infested waters, terry acts out actual shark attacks with actual sharks. >> they're everywhere, bumping me. >> reporter: giving us a step-by-step guide to get out of
any worst-case scenario, like being stranded in open water. >> when you're in open water like this, you're in their world. and they have a distinct tactical advantage. the goal is to avoid unnecessary contact. if a shark does threaten me and i can't avoid it, i'm going to fight back with everything i've got. >> reporter: but don't go running to the shallow end just yet. why do sharks feed in shallow watt center. >> small fish school in shallow waters. he is up out of the water. i had to throw him back in. >> reporter: what about a cage match? >> even this can't guarantee your safety. if this ever happens, chances are the shark will be even more upset about it than you are. make sure to hold him close to the head so he can't use his flexibility to turn around and bite you. whoa. it was like wrestling a pitbull
with fins. >> reporter: the two most important rules. >> try to stay calm, and think your way through it. you'll have your best chance of surviving a shark attack. >> reporter: that might be easier said than done. here we are with the man himself. terry, i have to shake your hand. >> thanks for having me on. >> reporter: the host of shark attack survival on discovery. you're a green beret. active duty. and going out there and messing with the sharks to teach the rest of us. give me potential scenarios to avoid. >> we were talking, too. when you're in the water with fish and bait, sharks can smell stuff about a mile away. and so, one of the things we create in the show, too, and let people realize, is that even in a foot of water, chris -- >> really? >> yeah. we were able to beach them. they came up on their belly to get the food. that was a revelation for me. i didn't think they would get in that close. six inches of water, they were on top of me. don't think you're safe. don't be scared to fish. >> why would i be scared of huge
sharks coming up to my ankles? >> that can happen. >> you're a green beret, fighting with a fishing poll. i have my high-pitched voice. >> these are caribbean reef sharks. they're medium size. medium agro. they're not a great white. they are not puppies. they are sharks. they have teeth. >> pitbull with fins. that's a good line. >> yeah. there was the one bit when i lured one into the cage with me. they slammed the door shut. i'm trapped with the shark. he's supposed to be outside. now, he's inside. i was trying to do a few things that i talk about in the show, when you put them almost in a coma. it works to a degree. when i tried to lift him and get him o out of the cage, he was upset. >> top two things to do if there's a shark around you. >> if you're in the water and under water, like i do, like a driver, and a shark shows up, make eye contact with them. i know it sounds crazy.
but they know if you're looking at him. and they think, that guy's a harder target. almost like on the street. a criminal looking at you. if you look at him hard-core, they tend to leave you. now, if you do get -- if they do grab you and get ahold of you, all of their snout and the front of their faces, they have their olfactory nerves. go on top. we were talking whack a mole. and get them in the ice and the gills. >> terry sheppert. you're the man. green berry. discovery, start watching it on sunday. discovery. your frizz revolution stars now. new frizz-ease smooth start. the only shampoo and conditioner with frizz mending complex. transforms frizz by repairing it. to restore hair's natural defense gainst frizz. for 100% flawless, frizz-free style frizz-ease smooth start.
