7:02 am
>> first let's get to today's top story. that damaging and deadly flooding in the south. the images coming out of texas and oklahoma are just unreal. entire neighborhoods submerged. crews using boats and helicopters to use rescues. gabe gutierrez is in hard-hit texas. gabe good morning. >> reporter: willie good morning. this is some of the incredible damage we've seen. these three small houses they had been across the street. now, residents here say some of this damage looks more like a tornado than a flood. so far at least three people have been confirmed killed in texas and oklahoma. and today authorities are searching for at least eight others missing including several children. this morning in texas, a crushing memorial day. hundreds of people waking up homeless. local officials calling this flooding historic and catastrophic. >> we do have whole streets that have maybe one or two houses left on them and the rest of them are slabs.
7:03 am
>> reporter: here in wimberley, one man survived but his wife and two children are missing. they were staying in a house along the blanco river saturday night. the river reached flood stage at 12 feet. it took more than an hour for it to crest at 43. this water rose quickly here. look at where that desk ended up. all the way up in that tree. emergency workers raced to rescue trapped homeowners and drivers. >> oh my gosh! stop stop stop! he needs to get out! >> reporter: an elderly man was saved just moments before a raging river took over his suv. but captain jason farley a veteran firefighter, drowned while trying to rescue people. >> he was a very good man. >> reporter: late sunday tornado warnings were issued for parts of kansas missouri iowa and illinois. back in texas, the damage
7:04 am
assessment is just beginning. this small resort wiped out. >> when you come down here you can tell it's going to take months to fix a lot of this stuff. >> reporter: overnight there was a nighttime curfew that was in effect. many memorial day events in this area have been canceled and the governor of texas is set to tour some of this damage later today. willie? >> those pictures are just astounding. let the people there know we're thinking about them today. thank you so much. dylan, not a lot of relief there either. >> no. we still have more rain in the forecast. this area picks up to 2 to 4 inches of rain in may on average. and we have already seen nearly 20 inches in parts of southeastern oklahoma. oklahoma city 18.7 inches so far this may alone. dallas nearly a foot of rain. houston, 7 inches of rain. the problem is the rivers.
7:05 am
the ground is saturated and any additional rainfall seeps into the rivers. some are rising 20 feet in one hour. we've got this cold front moving in. we've still got this moisture streams in from the gulf of mexico. 25 million people are under this flash flood watch including oklahoma, texas, and parts of arkansas and western louisiana. any torrential downpours have the potential of producing more flash flooding. also the risk of stronger storms in central texas. we also have to remember hail and isolated tornadoes are also possible. in addition to that 5 to 6 more inches of rain. we will see this push further to the east. by tuesday evening, just spotty showers in texas. we're still looking at heavier rain to move into the midwest. these are the bullseyes. down near houston. down near parts of southern miss. that's where we could end up with up to 8 inches of rain in
7:06 am
ground that's already saturated. >> thank you very much. now to a scary scene near the u.s. capitol. take a look. a bomb squad called in to destroy a pressure cooker found in a suspicious vehicle. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams has more for us. pete good morning. what's the latest there? >> reporter: well tamron u.s. capitol police are not saying exactly what attracted their attention to the car parked at the foot of the u.s. capitol on the west side toward the national mall. but when they took a closer look they detected an odor of gasoline and inside saw a pressure cooker. those cooking pots have been used to make bombs in the past. so they closed off the street for a couple of blocks in both directions and called in a bomb squad. that team searched the car and removed the items and blew them up. capitol police say nothing hazardous was found. the driver from suburban washington, d.c. has been arrested but the charge was driving on expired license.
7:07 am
the car was discovered before the memorial day concert. ever since the boston marathon bombing, pressure cookers have attracted police attention. an issue of the online al qaeda magazine included instructions on how to use them to include bombs. >> thank you very much pete. on this memorial day we pay trip yut to the men and women who have died serving the country. right now nearly 10,000 troops are still stationed in afghanistan. about 3,000 more in iraq. an isis militant seized control of ramadi last week. a debate is raging over whether the u.s. needs to change its strategy in its fight against isis. ashton carter was blunt when talking about the problem. >> they withdrew from the site. and that says to me and i think most of us that we have an issue
7:08 am
with the will of the iraqis to fight isil and defend themselves. >> retired general jack jacobs has been awarded the medal of honor. he's now an nbc correspondent. colonel jack jacobs is with us. it's always good to see you, sir. >> good morning, willie. >> let's pick up on the sound bite from secretary carter. it seems that is at the heart of the u.s. strategy. partnering with the iraqi military to defeat isis. where do we go from here? >> well i can't see any place reasonable to go from here. when secretary carter says the iraqis lack the will to fight, it's difficult to envision how we're going to get them to have the will to fight after all this time. you have corrupt government in baghdad. now you've got -- we're
7:09 am
supporting shia militias to go in. i can't see how the country holds together and i can't see what we can do short of sending several hundreds of thousands of americans back to iraq to hold that country together. the path ahead is very very difficult indeed. >> colonel jacobs, president obama said this week the fall of ramadi was a technical setback. he said isis is on the defensive. do you agree with the president's assessment? >> no i don't at all. it's difficult to envision what our strategy is. we have lots of tactics. i mean we bomb the bad guys. we have people on the ground to train iraqis which doesn't seem to have worked well. but it's impossible to determine what our long-term strategy is.
7:10 am
i think we need to sit down and think what we want the end to look like. if you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there. at the moment it doesn't seem as if we know exactly where we're going. and exhortations by people like former secretary gates that what we really need to do is send more troops more advisers more aircraft in to bomb isis that doesn't make any sense. because as anybody who's fought in combat knows, air power, artillery support, is only good to the extent it supports the troops on the ground who have to seize and hold terrain. short of the iraqis being able to seize and hold terrain that we help them win back i can't see any way forward at all. >> colonel jacobs before i let you go a lot of people waking up right now getting ready to go to parades and have picnics and watch fireworks. as i watch you stand there in front of the vietnam memorial i
7:11 am
imagine this day means something different to you. >> well behind me are the names of 58,300-some-odd of my brothers people who gave their lives so we can enjoy today. we have to remember that today is not just a time to get together with family and friends and have a good time and overeat yet again. which is what we all do. but to stop and reflect about how we got here how we can enjoy a day like today. and it's because of the people whose names are on that wall behind me. >> amen. colonel jack jacobs a great american. good to see you, sir. >> good to see you. >> you know there are people that you meet in your life and once you meet colonel jack jacobs you know there is something so special about him. great work from him today. meanwhile, sheinelle is here with a disturbing story out of louisiana. >> a police officer for the new orleans housing authority was shot and killed while sitting in his patrol car. police say the officer was
7:12 am
working overtime to guard a public housing construction site. his body was found early sunday morning. the officer's name has not been released. police are still searching for possible suspects in the case. tragedy in albuquerque, new mexico this weekend. the father and a 12-year-old boy were killed when a strong gust of wind toppled the cherry picker they were in. three other children were seriously hurt. police say the booms that are supposed to secure the machine were not in place at the time of the accident. it was at its maximum height. a six-story fall. neighbors say the man often took kids up in his cherry picker. former israeli prime minister was sentenced to eight months in prison today. olmert was convicted in march in a retrial. today's sentencing comes after a six-year prison sentence he got last year in a separate bribery
7:13 am
conviction. he hoped to bring about peace with the palestinians. the tampa bay lightning now one trip away from the stanley cup finals. the lightning beat the rangers in game five of the finals. game six is tomorrow night in tampa. and from the skating stars of today to the stars of tomorrow. children in cuba got a rare look at ice skating thanks to an artist. using special materials, the surface resembles ice but doesn't melt. the rink will stay in the capital for another three days in part of a festival that features artists. >> ice that doesn't melt? that blows my mind. >> but it's not ice. >> yeah, but they use ice skates. >> i felt like that should be in parts of this country. >> but i'm happy we could smile because the grown from the
7:14 am
rangers fans -- >> i can't handle that. >> that was icy. >> i felt it. >> all right, sheinelle. thanks. dylan? >> we have a lot of rain to talk about. across most of the country, actually. the heaviest is through texas. but we have heavier rain and downpours into the gulf coast. the eastern seaboard is enjoying a nice memorial day. temperatures heating up. highs today should top out in the mid to upper 80
7:15 am
>> and that's your latest forecast. >> thank you very much. well the race for the white house is getting crowded on the republican side. nearly 20 hopefuls so far with others yet to announce. and that could present the gop with a serious problem once the debates get underway. here's nbc's capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. >> reporter: so much ambition.
7:16 am
so little elbow room. >> there's only 55 people that are thinking about running for president. best i can tell. >> reporter: a republican race that looks supersized. >> is this the ready for hillary group? >> reporter: well you could say that about this jumbo lineup of competitors. so many faces, almost 20. they do not easily fit on one screen or more importantly, on one debate stage. >> if you're a candidate and not on the stage, you're not going to have the kind of momentum you need to move forward. so expect a lot of the campaigns now to kick into gear. >> reporter: count on twitter to offer these space saving solutions. imagine the hollywood squares debate model. or even a 2016 republican primary bracket. but any lineup is a logistics challenge for the republican national committee. >> we're trying to figure out how many we can fit on a debate stage. >> reporter: but the rnc is not
7:17 am
the decider in chief. instead, each network host for nine debates will determine the qualifications. >> each candidate is going to have to determine what their strategy is as we head into the first debate this august. >> i'm quite confident i'll be on the debate stage. >> reporter: but can carly fiorina make the cut? >> let me come and be on the stage all by myself. >> reporter: or mike huckabee? he believes he deserves a chance. but when republicans gather in cleveland this august for the first debate only the top ten will get a microphone. based on an average of their poll numbers. >> to be a winner you have to think like a winner. >> reporter: donald trump might have the name recognition needed to crack the top ten. but with no front runner and the biggest field in gop history, making the debate team is the summer's real prize. for "today," kelly o'donnell, nbc news washington. >> there's must-see tv and then
7:18 am
there's that. that's going to be a great series of debates just from the personalities alone. then you get to the policies. >> the two parties are polar opposites. 20 on one side and 2 so far on the other. meantime tributes are pouring in this morning for actress and comedian the great ann meara. stars of movies tv the stage for nearly 60 years. she died over the weekend at the age of 85. carson has more on her life and career. good morning. >> good morning, guys. older fans know her best from stiller and meara. young ber generations knowing her as ben stiller's mom. either way she carved a path in hollywood. ann meara was known for countless supporting roles in film and tv. >> 14 hours i was in labor with you. very nice. >> reporter: but she first came to fame in the 1960s as half of the comedy team stiller and meara. along with her husband of 61 years, jerry stiller. >> yeah.
7:19 am
i'm compulsive about shine. >> reporter: while the couple made a name for themselves on shows like "the ed sullivan show." >> he doesn't even look like you. >> no wait wait. >> reporter: meara was a star in her own right appearing in dozens of films and tv shows including "all my children," "law & order svu." >> go home. you look tired. >> reporter: she never missed a chance to poke fun at her husband even here on "today." >> why do you you let them ask the question? why? >> reporter: she spoke proudly at an event for son ben stiller. >> i felt he'd by a big-time something. but he could have been a thief. i don't know. i'm very proud he became a big time actor, director writer. >> reporter: they did not reveal the cause of death but released a statement saying in part, anne's memory lives on in the hearts of daughter amy, son ben,

item by item what makes you happy. if it doesn't, say good-bye. i wore this shirt to my 21st birthday party. i don't know why i have this. it sounds silly, but her method could have real effects. >> when people are organized and tidy they feel more powerful. it's about having gratitude for the things in your life. maybe once a week you give thanks for the things you haven't. >> reporter: it becomes shockingly easy to let things go. now you've purged everything you don't love. put it all away. but you can't just throw things into drawers. listen to your clothes to make sure they're happy with how they're being stored. hanging the items that look like they would be happiest hanging and rolling up your socks like pieces of sushi. while tips feel crazy, i do feel lighter and happier. but if you're still not inspired to tidy up don't worry. >> for all the messy people out there, i would also say there
8:35 am
are other ways to change. maybe for you it's not being tidy but change is possible for all of us. >> okay. i'm kind of excited to try this. what are the tips for people at home who want to dive into this? >> it's important that you make sure everything you keep really makes you happy. so just pick up everything one by one, ask does this spark joy? that's the most important thing. if it doesn't, let it go. second is it's hard to get rid of a gift because you feel guilty. but if you thank it it's done its job, donate it and move on. the third thing, you can't tidy your family's stuff. you have to let them get inspired by what you're doing and then they'll want to join in. but it doesn't work if you purge their items for them. >> so have you kept to it in your home? >> for the most part. but it feels great. >> i don't know how to fold the cloes to make them happy. >> that's a challenge. >> how do the clothes tell me?
8:36 am
>> you'll just know. >> i'll feel it? >> yeah. >> we'll see what happens. thank you. for more tips on how to tidy up your home go to today.com. including a very special folding technique. just ahead, the real reason for today's holiday. we'll honor some of the people who have given their a all for the rest of us. but first this is "today" on nbc.
8:37 am
8:38 am
>> announcer: "today's" books is brought to you by the all new kindle voyage. passionately crafted for readers. >> back now at 8:38 with the real reason for the holiday. honoring our fallen service members. brandon webb out with a new book "among heroes."
8:39 am
brandon, good to see you on memorial day. >> thanks for having me. >> was this is tough thing to sit down and do? you wrote a tribute to your fallen brothers. how tough was that? >> it was tough, but i was in the middle of another book and lost my best friend in benghazi libya, in 2012. it just hit me that i need to really write a book and honor these friends and men who are no longer here and share their stories with america. they're important inspirational stories. >> i wish we had time to honor all of them. but let's touch on a few of them. your buddy john j.t.tumueson. tell me about him. >> he first came through when i was a course manager. right away i picked j.t. to be the class leader. a tall guy from iowa. he was one of the best in the program. we described him as a human labrador. he was smart, loyal, and ironically his dog hawkeye in
8:40 am
that image went around the world. >> tell the story behind this picture because it is remarkable as we take a look at it. >> sure. you know during the service, j.t.'s dog hawkeye just got up and went and laid down next to j.t.'s casket throughout the service. i think it was an image that was incredibly powerful and went around the internet virally. and i think the picture says it all. >> it takes your breath away to look at it. let's move to matt axelson. operation red wing. later turned into the book and movie "lone survivor." >> matt was also a student of mine and later a friend. he just was one of those guys with nerves of steel. would be the first to volunteer for anything. one of the most stoic people
8:41 am
i've ever met. you know that's part of this book is these lessons i've taken and these traits from these guys and incorporated them into my life. it's what i hope people will read the book and also be inspired the same way i was. >> you mentioned earlier the attacks on the consulate in benghazi. your buddy glen doherty. that must have been hard to write about. >> yeah. glen was the catalyst of the book. i put off going to a lot of the funeral services when i was on active duty. glen's became unavoidable. but at that point when i was working with his family after losing him, it just hit me that you know i really need to write this book and honor these guys and tell their story and share it with america. >> and one more guy i want to mention. chris kyle, someone you worked with. of course the subject of the book "american sniper" and the hugely successful movie. what kind of guy was chris kyle? >> chris was a great guy. even as a new guy i remember him
8:42 am
in s.e.a.l. team 3. he had this texas swagger about him and instantly liked by everybody. i mean chris just a larger than life character. truly missed by many people. but his death really sent a lot of shock waves through the s.e.a.l. community. >> your book is incredible. it's called "among heroes." it's something everybody should read and very appropriate for this day. you can read an excerpt on today.com. brandon, thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. coming up the story you won't want to miss. the teacher using his son's story to change the lives of students. but first this is "today" on nbc.
8:43 am
8:44 am
back now at 8:44 and today's american story with bob dotson comes from louisville kentucky where a popular teacher wraps up each school year with a lesson on the meaning of life. a class some students say they'll remember forever.
8:45 am
so good to have you with us bob. >> good morning. happy memorial day. >> you as well. >> students do get a lot of advice these days. but most of the things written on smoke, the message soon driftss away. but not when it comes from some place deeply personal. >> reporter: jeff wright is one of those teachers students never forget. more show than tell. >> the guy is just crazy. he's exploding with fun. >> reporter: his science classes at louisville high school in kentucky are filled with odd experiments. like this one. where he lied on a bed of nails and a cinder block on his chest and he lets students learn a lesson about force and energy. >> good job, man. >> reporter: surprisingly it is a lecture without props that
8:46 am
leaves the lasting impression. the talk is about wright's son adam. born with a rare combination of genes that only about 450 people in the world have. >> 180 times a minute. about three times a second. we then found out he was completely blind. >> reporter: he can't speak, walk or even sit up. wright and his wife nancy, a nurse, must watch over him around the clock. >> there's not a day that goes by that you don't ask why us. >> we have bad days. we have good days. you focus on the good days. >> reporter: like the afternoon adam first played dolls with his older city abbey. >> i told him to grab his doll from me and he just kind of smacked it. >> if he can kick a doll then he can see. >> reporter: adam was not lost in the darkness of his mind.
8:47 am
he could see enough to learn a bit of sign language. one day his arms formed a sentence. >> what's that mean? daddy, i love you. >> reporter: that's when his father realized. >> that he's a real person. >> reporter: capable of a smile lit from inside. what has adam taught? >> if i could mean a little something to you and you could go and mean a little bit of something to somebody else then at least we have a purpose. >> reporter: life can be unfair. love can make it better. adam now communicates about 150 words. small steps that begin with "i
8:48 am
love you." >> what a beautiful story. >> it is. >> my goodness. i would imagine that other families with children with special needs would see this and not give up and look for those victories with their children. >> bob, thank you so much. >> thank you so much. up next we'll head outside to show you how to put a new spin on your boring barbecue hot dogs. but first this is "today" on nbc.
8:49 am
8:50 am
yes. we're back with "today's" kitchen firing up the grill like millions of you across the country today. i'm sorry i'm distracted. >> way to kick off the unofficial start of summer. that means hot dogs. author of "the new york times" best seller "sunny's kitchen" here. sunny, good to see you. >> good to see you guys. >> these are some dressed up dogs here. >> it's memorial day so i figure you've got your menus set. these are ways to dress up the dogs you're already going to make today. >> things we probably already have in the house. >> yes. so i spent a lot of time in seattle this year seeing the seahawks play. shout out there. and they have a thing they call the seattle dog. i'll show you how to make my
8:51 am
version. and we have one lady from seattle. she said it was okay what i'm doing to this dog. so the rule for seattle dog, first thing's first, you've got the split kielbasa. bring that over. >> how do we do that? with our hands? >> with the tongs not with your hands, girl. >> so this is a kielbasa. >> the key to a seattle dog is the cream cheese. they actually put cream cheese on it. but my version, i like just a little bit of spice. so i'm adding in some of that adobo sauce and chilies you can find in a can. you mix that together. what they'll do is they put it into a caulking gun like when you're doing work around the house. and what they'll do is put it in there and kweez it right now. i put it into a plastic bag. and you cut the tip.
8:52 am
you want to squeeze this on? right onto the dog, girlfriend. some onions grilled. and then not everyone in seattle loves the mustard, but i'm a mustard girl. little bit of mustard. and you've got your spicy seattle dog. i'm not going to ask you to eat that. it will mess up your dress, girl. >> i want to taste it. >> okay. >> seattle? all right. >> it's awesome. >> that good, huh? >> good stuff? >> what about this one? >> to me grilling is an all-day sport. i'm guaranteeing you someone across the land is outside getting the grill ready. this is about breakfast. we heard of cronut i'm going to show you the crosant bring the
8:53 am
hot dogs over. the ones that are split. >> why do you need them split? >> i want to be able to get them into the croissant. >> what's that? >> apple jalapeno chilly. a little bit of sweet, a little bit of spicy. >> what kind of cheese is that? >> a little american cheese. >> god bless. >> then the hot dog right here. a little bit of pepper jack. scallions over the top. >> and this is something you created? >> yes, i created this. sorry, dominique ansel. oh egg! sorry. >> you're too busy trash talking. >> i know. that goes on the inside. wrap it up put it back on the grill so everything starts to melt over the indirect heat. going to love that in the
8:54 am
morning. okay so then the very last one, i've just started living in l.a. and i notice everyone loves their things protein style which means no bread. we have chicken and apple sausages and slaw. good stuff. real easy for your healthy people. >> i could put this to share with you, but there's no knives. ready? >> happy memorial day. thanks for getting us started. she'll be back with quick and easy stuff. get the recipes on today.com. but first let's get to today's birthday wishes from mr. willard scott. >> the sidewalks of new york never looked better. wish i were with you. happy birthday to julia nissen. julia's from brooklyn new york. give me the moon over brooklyn. she is a great baker.

9:02 am
>> a few days ago when it was really cold. >> she's from l.a. >> what is the real story behind the voice? >> honestly i think it was just being here so early last week. promoting "i can do that" and trying to sing. >> teaching us to salsa. >> exactly. >> you were sick. you told me you were sick. just blaming it on you. >> did you notice how she said i wasn't at the club. i'm in my 30s. there are people in their 30s -- what does that mean for us in our 40s? >> once in awhile it's okay. i knew i had a big day today, so i went to bed early. i stayed in my bed all day yesterday. >> what time did you go to bed yesterday? >> i took about eight naps yesterday. >> all getting ready for this? >> all for this moment. >> that's what we do. we're 40s and we go to clubs. >> it comes back. >> i'm in my 30s, i'm over that. >> you come back in your 40s. you mentioned the show. "i can do that." cheryl is one of six celebrities who star on nbc's new variety show for people who haven't
9:03 am
heard we had you on last week talking about it. talk about it a little bit. >> it premieres tomorrow. i'm so excited. and honestly i've done stuff that i've never done before. all six of us have done stuff that we normally aren't used to doing. but now we're being vulnerable. i did harlem groeb trotters which you were showing off a little bit last week. that was your moment. and then i did jabawockees. and i chose joe jonas who has zero dance experience. i have to say you're going to be shocked when you see it. >> so they are known for their popping and locking and they've got the masks. >> it was like cheryl you can dance, this is easy. it's so much harder to untrain your body and be able to like have bad posture when i'm so used to standing up straight. and now i have to blend in with the group. and they're like cheryl we're
9:04 am
giving joe more props. you looked a little too classy. you need to get down and dirty. >> that was your down and dirt we what you just did? >> did you get the mask? >> i did. i got the white mask. >> so the show debuts tomorrow at 10:00 p.m. >> are you in that clip? >> you don't know. we're in the masks. which i could not breathe. you have to breathe through your mouth. i could have died being a jabbawockee. there's a lot going on there. >> medical attention for you. cool. we'll check that out. tomorrow 10:00 on nbc. looks like a fun show. great story to tell you about on this memorial day. a new jersey high school student got a huge surprise from her two military brothers. check this out.
9:05 am
that's u.s. army sergeant and specialist. they've been deployed since last june. almost a year she had not seen her brothers and they surprised her. never gets old watching those. >> you've said it again and i'll let you say it now. >> give me an entire channel of military reunions. >> yes. the whole channel, round the clock marathon. just show those reunions from all over the country, all over the world. you've got yourself a network that's on top. i don't know why they don't do that. >> i mean it just makes your heart melt. >> it does. >> you see these people and you're like my gosh they just sacrifice their whole life for us. and just to be able to be reunited with your loved ones an amazing moment. >> and it shows a side many people don't talk about. the families' sacrifice. those who are left at home not just wives or spouses, but sisters and brothers as in this case. it's beautiful. it's a beautiful thing.
9:06 am
we were talking about this earlier today. you like a good selfie. you like when fans come up. >> i'm the selfie queen. sorry, kim. i'm not selfie queen. i just like them. >> kanye will take that from you. celebrity selfies, we love going out on the plaza. however, there's a right way and a wrong way to ask for a selfie. let's present evidence. a fan found out he was at center court at the french open and then tried to take a selfie with roger federer. security intervened escorting this fan away. roger clearly not happy with it. he brought up the 2009 french open when a fan tried to put a hat on him before that man was dragged off. the tournament director confirmed that sufficient security is in place and they have no plans of changing security. so that's a bad idea.
9:07 am
>> yeah. >> i don't think it's that bad. >> when a guy runs on the court? you don't know what his intentions are. >> was he having a bad game? >> no. the match was over. and you don't know what a fan's intentions are when they run up on the court. >> and his point was this is my job. and there have been incidents in the past very famous incidents where people have been injured. so in that environment, it's probably not the safest thing. it's like when people run out on the basketball court. there's lebron james and somebody runs out on the court. you don't know. >> you could see federer look around like where's security. >> there's a right way and wrong way to do it. where was the security? >> they said they were around but apparently they didn't get there fast enough. so that's our example of whatnot to do. but here's how you take a selfie. our friend dwayne johnson, the rock set a guinness world record for taking the most selfies in three minutes. how many? he took 105 selfies at the london premiere of his film "san
9:08 am
andreas andreas." i love how he keeps it moving. >> i like that there's a guinness record for selfies in three minutes. very specific. >> everyone's shoulder has to be in the photo. to get in the book. everyone's head and neck has to be in. okay where's my -- >> where's the rule book for selfies? >> we need to take an official guinness selfie. >> the rock has long arms so that helps. >> willie's got long arms. but it has to be something that gets us in the record books. >> like 106 selfies. >> here we go. ready? real quick. we'll be right with you. >> hold please. >> i got it i got it. i got it. >> you didn't get it in. >> you messed it up. tamron. >> what's that?
9:09 am
>> that's christine. >> take it again. >> we've got -- >> no. take it again. how often do we get cheryl on? and she smells great. >> okay. >> oh, my gosh. >> fail. >> let's play a game. you know our dancing queen cheryl burke. we're going to play a game here. we'll watch short dance scenes from famous films. first in to guess the movie. >> is it a dancing film? >> don't worry about it. >> she's a guest, willie. >> our first. >> dirty dancing. >> i won it. >> tamron was in. >> you slapped him first but i yelled it first. >> okay. we got it. let's go. >> next clip. roll it. >> flash dance. >> i heard flash dance on the left first. >> listen, dude.
9:10 am
>> as a dancer how incredible was the dancing in that? >> that's incredible. i couldn't do that. >> really? the great cheryl burke couldn't do that? >> how many times have you won "dancing with the stars"? >> like 20 years ago. >> how many did you win? >> just two. but flash dance is a whole other type of dance. you know? >> okay. by the way, this is the deciding clip. it's 1-1. >> grease. >> cheryl burke is our champion. >> let's review. >> i sate footloose. >> it's grease. cheryl burke is our champion. >> i have never even seen grease before. is that crazy? >> how have you not seen grease? >> i am psychic. >> but can you jabbawockee? i don't believe you. >> you'll have to tune in. >> she snatches your title. >> i actually just broke my hand. >> you took kim kardashian's
9:11 am
selfie crown, my not dancing crown. >> i like your dress better than mine. >> now here's dylan with the weather. >> all right. tuck borrow my splint if you need it. but we are looking at a lot of rain through parts of texas and oklahoma. over the past several weeks, may 2015 we have seen just record amounts of rainfall. the rainiest mays on record in oklahoma city shreveport with 8 inches. normally for the entire month of may it's 2 to 4 inches. that's why we're seeing tons of river flooding and dangerous flash flooding. severe thunderstorm watch box in texas. not only dangerous lightning but the flash flooding as a possibility. because within some of these storms we are going to see torrential downpours. that's an area to focus on again today. especially this afternoon and evening as more areas redevelop. we could see golf ball sized hail. isolated tornadoes. but again, it's really the
9:12 am
flooding that's our big e concern. so those will fire up later on today. we'll get a break through the night. then finally we'll see the storms push a little more into the midwest good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. your memorial day forecast is looking sunny and warm. mostly sunny skies. and a bit breezy, too. the winds will be picking up this afternoon along with the temperature . 84 to 87. winds of 20 miles an hour with higher gusts. tomorrow it's the temperature that will go higher. you will notice the humidity is a bit higher, too. a breezy day. 90 degrees for tuesday. again on wednesday. a chance of storms for wednesday, thursday, friday and through the weekend. have a great day. >> and that's your latest forecast. back over to you guys. >> thanks a lo t. coming up, he's famous for being executive assistant in entourage. we'll catch up with rex lee who

9:15 am
pixar's inside out. june 19th. brandon thinks hellmann's is heaven in a jar. come to think of it, brandon, there is a little slice of heaven in every jar. that's because our ingredients come from places like... pleasantville, iowa! and farmers committed to responsibly sourced oils... blended with ingredients like cage-free eggs. we're talkin' real ingredients. for three generations. mmm. heaven. thank you. real ingredients. from a real place. that's how we're working to bring out the best. leftovers. the unsung hero of meals. they get re-heated. re-nuked. and re-baked. and when leftovers are done... there's always stuff left over. new dawn platinum power clean calls dibs on those. it powers through tough, dried-on messes in seconds. even 48 hour stuck-on food. so go ahead, triple that recipe! a drop of dawn
9:16 am
and grease is gone. it was ten years ago that rex lee first stepped into the role of ari gold's assistant lloyd in "entourage." >> now he steps back for the big screen that fans have been waiting for for four years. >> take a look. >> could we have lunch this week? >> i don't have lunch with this ex-assistants unless i need something from them which i can't imagine being the case from you. so what's up? >> i'm getting married! >> oh god. >> and i want you to give me away. >> oh god! >> please don't make a gay joke. >> i wasn't going to. i was going to make a marriage joke. good luck with the divorce. >> good morning good to see you. happy to have you with us. so lloyd is getting married to a
9:17 am
famous athlete. >> i'm not allowed to reveal that. >> i know. i watched the movie. >> it's a great cameo. you've been doing this gig for about ten years with "entourage." does it get old being yelled at by jeremy piven? >> not at all. it's acting. i know it's going to happen. so i'm prepared. and actually when you know it's fake it's actually fun. it's fun to have someone yell at you. you wouldn't think so. >> do a lot of people come up to you and say i know what you're going through. my boss yells at you. >> people say i'm from kansas i'm from iowa and my family back home doesn't know what i do. i tell them to watch the show. and they say i'm lloyd. so you know it's flattering. >> how good was it to be back with the gang? we were talking during the commercial break. there were so many rumors about whether the movie would be a reality and here we are. but it took some negotiating.
9:18 am
i won't make you name names. >> no, we felt that way too. i literally thought this movie would never get made. but it was so fun to get back together with everyone. it felt like putting on comfortable shoes that you forgot were in your closet. >> you got the band back together. this is your first scene on "entourage" 2005. take a look. >> i'm lloyd, ari' new assistant. >> i'm vince. >> i know who you are. >> he gives you a hard time you let me know. >> what happened to emil? >> i don't know. could i get you something to drink? >> do you remember what you're thinking in this first scene? >> well i don't remember what i'm thinking in that scene but i know i'm thinking now looking at it i'm so young and so skinny. i was working out with a trainer who didn't believe in carbs so i lost about 40 pounds in four months. >> gosh. >> i was noticing your hair. the hair has got a lot more
9:19 am
