Kathie Lee and Hoda: Most Deserving Mom Contest
Moms work so hard but rarely get enough recognition. Out of 3000 contestants, two moms who have gone above and beyond the normal call of motherly duty were picked to compete for a 7 day cruise. Kate and Deann are two mothers who put others before them, selflessly sacrificing their time, money, and energy helping those around them. Kate became an advocate and hero for her young son, Adam, who suffered brain damage and permanent blindness after a battle with bacterial meningitis. Not only did she step up her game to help him, she also is working to build a playground for children like him, so that they too can enjoy what regular children enjoy. The other mom, Deann, carried her sister’s baby when her sister was unable to get pregnant, allowing her sister to become a mom. Both women ended up winning the 7 day all-inclusive cruise grand prize!

Kathie Lee and Hoda: Jimmy Connors Causes a Stir
Tennis legend Jimmy Connors stopped by the studio to talk about his new memoir, The Outsider. The athlete turned author was very candid and open in his book, which some might find refreshing. But Jimmy’s ex-fiancee Chris Evert had something to say about his inclusion of a private matter in his book. Jimmy revealed that she had an abortion early in their relationship, and Chris released a statement saying she was “disappointed” that he included this in his book. Jimmy, however, said it was an important part of his book.
