Back in the studio and I know you're watching a live right -- -- -- -- friends that come.
Carol -- this year our books do extremely well again easy sexy raw.
It's really had a revamp exactly which -- every single element of the day every -- -- the making small changes.
In order to live longer and look great America live longer look great it's so easy -- -- and and they thought they.
Long time supermodel who also you do it too dangerous to Woody Allen movie that's out right now I am -- -- -- but in a big in a big write up today HBO is rolling out -- seems like a documentary right.
Fact of the documentary about supermodels then and now yeah I mean we have had such amazing coverage on this it really hits a nerve with people I think in -- schools if you burst on the scene in the super -- -- Correct and you're still on the well some people say I started it.
-- that that would be maybe -- Well who else is in this.
-- Carmen is in it is Miller Cellini Paulina Christie Brinkley Christie telling team and Kim Alexis.
And it is there is a cross -- cross the divide there's everybody achievement shot -- it was 81.
And Beth and she's about I'm -- about eighty also I mean it's it's goes to the history of modeling it takes us from models slash hooker.
To the brand names that you know today -- model according to the story understand.
He's to be synonymous with hookers who people used to not say correct yeah you know I -- people used to think you're saying model and you actually meant that you are hooker.
And some of the girls moms are actually very surprised that they were in commercials and actually doing print work.
They -- I thought you were a hooker and you just tell me you're not it.
Easy for me to swallow.
And and that really happened.
And it happened just look at told user right up in the post and Alison was good enough to bring this in.
Linda Stasi New York than right now yes yeah there I am last year's models -- that mean.
What last year's model -- but then you read the story is really good as is the show.
And it's up on HBO and the sorts tonight.
And it's called about face supermodels then and then -- but it's titles like that that make women feel on you know very self conscious about.
What you know it's like when Christie Brinkley says well I've been -- former supermodel for 25 years.
Why did they have to label women -- and she still looks good or she looks good for her age why don't have to qualify that.
Every time we do that I think we diminish women.
Troop would you say to a guy you might say hey that guy looks good for his age not I say wow he looks good.
I try not to qualified because I know I don't like that done to me is it harder.
Getting older as a model.
It's -- getting older as a woman in general.
Models it becomes a microcosm because it's it's really people focus on it every job depends -- You'd go line by your looks and we defining -- books for defined by the the people we represent.
I -- the bottom ended a baby boomers.
And so of course you know and -- testing high end baby boomers are getting older so of course it reflects backwards on to me to.
And you know baby boomers are spending less the young kids are spending more so it becomes.
Because -- economics.
At the demographics of who you reach as a person and as people start -- tying off that's my pool -- people who -- me -- -- get smaller and all I know but you only use stayed relevant.
I've tried to -- committee and I really advise my father said to me is can be five years Carol.
So put your money in the bank and it three years of four years I started to look for other things -- posters and calendars than it did.
Movies and videos and then it went on to -- you know spread out into becoming an -- Because I love this business and I realize the powered reaching people.
And driving an aim to do that I didn't want to just feet away -- wanted to stay in the same loved.
Now what about politics and he gonna be is -- officially be thrown in a FOX & Friends is how I guess you just a -- out.
-- always pick the city of utility I didn't Fisher yet -- fat cats have a three hours I mean you do everything from fitness fitness stories to.
What's happening latest whenever you let you guys look -- every threat -- first of any Olympics yes female issues there's two things have come up one I love this.
Hope Solo who's -- famous for many people outside soccer for -- and dance with the stars almost winning.
And then she called out the US soccer team for not starting -- a big game for years -- in the center home.
And that she's starting again wins gold and becomes -- station will the brandy chess game one of the most famous female soccer players is in the Booth.
And she comments that the goal keeping his little -- in the Centre back is little weak in the game they won 42.
And back to Twitter.
On Twitter one after another Hope Solo rips fellow American Brady testing the game is pastor by -- -- learn which is looking at bubbled up all negative.
This is what we get with a guy sports and I think his fellow female sports to go -- what's your take who's right who's wrong well.
First is wanna say well.
All this negative stuff trust publicity so brings viewers to -- that and that is don't you think they need that that they need that absolutely I think all women sports need to have some kind of notoriety to kind of controversy to go so.
You know hope understands that.
But on the other hand it you don't.
People who know the game.
No -- -- commentators are lying and when they're not telling the truth and I think if you are someone who's played the game and you're in the -- you've got a cult like to see it I don't want someone just.
Pretending to watch the game I want to -- really -- me tell.
He really what's going on now you he was her job to do and if that's you see it because you had to serve the fan.
Absolutely and here's the problem as you know you -- to -- pressure famous ranger.
And then a year with let's -- -- Sheehan whose one of the greatest hockey players in the world.
And was in the NHL -- Russian.
When you get an ex player in the boot they got a criticized guys they played with that that's part of -- because if you truly are serving the fan.
Did you go to -- off the guys you played with in this case it happened would win.
So I think that someone who knows the game.
Should know when someone's not playing well and if I'm watching -- -- you know how fabulous somebody's playing and I know they're not playing well because I know the game to.
That's a disservice to meet and to everybody else watching yes OK -- your friends but they have to understand too.
Even if it's my friend I want the truth I don't like yes men around because you can make Q2 mistakes UBS -- -- -- Carol -- here.
And yes she is and let's move -- to the other female issue okay -- we take a break.
The other female issue is -- the Saudi Arabian women I believe this society women.
They are competing for the first time this and females there so there in the judo finals there in the judo tournament.
And they said a by the way will -- in the head dress were in the hair thing that you know to keep to hear from going in August in the chaperone until the matches.
US Olympic Committee would excuse me the its initial of the committee says you know where there.
He addressed any not sitting chaperone you compete like everybody else -- feel about that.
Excuse me even a Miss America they sent -- -- -- they don't make any difference in the competition whatsoever so on that issue like totally totally disagree I think they need to have.
Their chaperones they feel safe and because when they're -- with the -- -- still have to go back into -- societal -- -- that -- -- right -- right -- you -- drive right and I don't agree with what they do women I mean I totally do not agree -- they -- to women in the country but it's their country and and they choose to to live that way but.
These women still have to go back there.
And if they are tainted.
In any way they will not be able to integrate back into society so you don't know what happens -- the go back I think that's a big you know these some of these things are issues beyond just sports the headrest.
I know you are for everybody being equal absolutely the question though Bryant is.
Is that -- an advantage or disadvantage and -- it makes no difference what so ever.
I think they should be allowed to Wear but there don't you think he uniform code should matter even if they say for example -- -- teams.
-- -- -- team but now within the -- within an organization or sport listen sometimes they Wear black arm -- for a fallen comrades sometimes they Wear.
You know the pink bow for breast cancer.
I think that you know statements -- statements no matter how baker how small how tolerant of -- Carol -- my last question female oriented question in this its -- and bring it up to a females are intolerant this morning I bet -- Tolerant today now we have a situation where the the valuable team they would they that have a habit of wearing tight bikinis when they play.
Now the IOC has asked them could you mind we hearing something a little bit less revealing when you play.
And the US response was I do mind and I -- You know where their money -- -- well -- I'm you know what they should be comfortable.
They know where their money is here's -- that -- how much were they asking them to change.
Out -- -- -- to -- one piece we -- like in 1928 down to their -- no way.
-- we know why people go see volleyball part of it the scale part of -- because it's beautiful and sexy to watch it mean.
Right that's where the -- -- and this is it for them arena soundly beat valuable the circuit is is getting a lot of money for them.
They got to cash in here they got to do the circuit and get their sponsors but again any kind of controversy kicks up.
He kicks it up a -- that people start looking -- Seeing what they're wearing now have to -- see -- there where and why they say indicate where that so I mean you know I think that's it actually yeah.
Very positive way to bring promotion to a sport what do you think it is in the stats read this that more of war women watch -- Olympics in men.
Yet more men watch sports.
More women watch the Olympics than men.
Well I think in the Summer Olympics it's a lot of gymnastics.
And I know -- could care less about gymnastics but he likes he likes hockey he likes those other things in us I think that there's a lot of female sports -- you know.
Sports -- very artistic in the Summer Olympics I could maybe think that -- -- -- in the through this and -- -- now on they care about that but I mean out of it radio waves that I just think -- that's when I'm amazed at his -- for the first on getting people say well that you watch the Olympics you know you were sports fan but did you give them synchronized diving.
And you give them water polo suddenly you have more more women interest it well you would think with these summer sports with a sexy suits like there wearing volleyball in the sixty seats that they Wear for swimming that -- have -- -- watching but I think women really.
Look at other women and really appreciate -- female form even if there's in -- straight women so.
Right that could play apart and I love looking at gymnastics I can't do it but -- about this.
But I love it but but you know if you're in the workplace when they're just -- -- especially in this business but see your business they'll be -- -- -- wanna get the job.
You'll competing every day's a new day.
Why get more competitive by the -- corrected him why doesn't transfers -- what's it.
Because for such -- me.
-- -- to society I think it's all about being the warrior out there the gladiator and I think that and -- goes on the ice he's my regular land gladiator I mean it's amazing to watch men do feats of strength.
Women should be.
Softer and and more beautiful technically not my -- But I think that has some play -- it I think men's sports is you know when I watch them they they're faster they're more aggressive.
That women's sports are and I think when you -- -- fast aggressive pace like you have to have a -- I can't watch baseball.
I'm so used to watching hockey it's fast it's aggressive it's -- moving baseball puts me to -- but.
You know as so I think that plays a lot into it.
She has a book out now it's is available easy sixty Ross had a real bad unit -- he has an opinion on everything which is great.
And by the way -- I just gave you -- quick heads up a second before we went on the air.
And number two is you also -- -- watch on HBO.
Not about face -- -- -- like.
-- I've met her -- She's attractive candidate.
But based on her background -- -- governor for a -- tears.
Come I don't think she passed that test we're getting ready -- -- and ready to take over the and -- I think that was so.
Dick Cheney yesterday in his first there -- -- -- since his heart transplant operation coming out -- have screen for two presidents.
President Ford as well as President Bush -- -- myself -- the second one.
And I would not a pick -- it was a mistake Carol alt in studio.
A female that only the second female vice presidential candidate.
Are you surprised -- was that candid about that.
Yeah a little bit but you know I I still -- Hillary so I hope that's.
You for Hillary I know what I heard Cameron -- were you stunned that she lost I was absolutely stunned I've heard her speak I think she's got -- Great grasp on on what's happening in the world she was bear -- Clinton's side the whole way.
And I think she was a great -- I think she's spectacular in what she's doing for Obama now so.
The jerseys and we think Palin do -- -- -- -- in overhead.
I you know I don't I.
You know I eat it and Brian I didn't pass on that -- you know why because.
I I I think that she is -- -- overhead and I think that you know she doesn't have the same type of and you know background it's Hillary does IE you know when you see I can't compare the two it's just my personal opinion.
Right and they they did is just amazing -- they do the movie game change.
And they could focus on McCain gave the nomination battle to come back the collapse of the economy instead they do the movie game change.
And they focus just on her selection -- what she went through.
I just have never seen anybody who forced people to take a statins so fervently either way.
You know and I think she's doing a lot of promotion -- a lot of press and getting her name out there and trying to make -- palatable to the American people but.
I hate being behind all of that how much experience does she really happy that's the big question this is a big country -- -- huge ship to steer.
And I really want someone who knows what's going on in there.
Right and you -- -- smaller than you violence -- apps that -- and a tougher but I and I -- how do you feel that Newsweek.
Putting a story of putting a cover of their magazine -- -- is his Mitt Romney to would be to be present.
-- -- Robert Gibbs -- Press Secretary comes -- is feasible.
Can you be a wimpy guy in a bully at the same time should they make a decision on how to attack on let's shift away I think it must -- -- -- it's our belief.
Realize why they're bullies they're trying to show how strong they are -- -- not really strong -- people are confident -- never be able.
Because they're confident what they can do without having to strong -- somebody right but if you act like a -- you can't act like a -- inexplicable well acting like a weapon acting like a bully is different than being a bully when you're really went right -- what do you think -- of a guy for example like.
Governor -- Who says it like it is and injures I think -- and in my book.
We're easy sixty -- India I he couldn't seem to lose few of you bounds.
Put for example do you think weight should be an issue -- excellent well I think always because -- is a health issue.
And if you elect somebody you want them to last the term for -- and it's a health issue but -- because we had -- -- the by the way be focused on you the issues of the time not their health or.
What's cropping up overnight with them so yes I think it's a very big issue and people like to if you watch your money to watch and acumen of friends that come Carol you look like -- 22.
And he said this was not the case before we discovered this new wavy.
Absolutely I mean age sneaks up on everybody at 34 they were telling me my heart burn my my.
Allergies my sinus infections all these stupid little things happening was taken all -- over the counter -- four.
Was just getting older quote unquote and for me.
I haven't had that in 17 years and am wailed that I was at 34 so from dealing can't change with my food.
The issue today's about food.
And what we're doing -- I think Michael Moore -- get on that Michael Moore yes because he should dig out what's happening with our food -- GM -- these things are crazy the reading of our food.
They're reading our food before they send in to this country.
Who is doing this the government if you wanna be in the civilized trade union they had you have to read eat the food it before you can send into this country kill bacteria -- -- his -- factories -- That your pro bacteria to grow bacteria -- -- anybody build up bright -- because you become stronger not weaker guys who give me an example out adults all eats for breakfast.

Except popcorn I do eat popcorn and hockey games I'm star and a half -- -- you know that added -- advice.
