Kathie Lee & Hoda: Hoda Has Blake Home For the First Time
Hoda brought her dog Blake home for the first time and she couldn’t stop gushing over him. She said he only had a few accidents in the house this weekend and she has been crate training the dog as well. She said the crate training has helped her dog just about as much as it has helped her. While Blake was getting used to being in his cage, Hoda said she was so bored she actually cleaned her house.
Although Hoda was a bit skeptical of getting a dog in the first place, she said she loves Blake so much she is going to figure out a way to make her schedule fit around her new puppy. She even started this weekend when she stayed in all weekend because she was having so much fun with the puppy.
Kathie Lee said there are still three dogs left to be adopted. Nutmeg, Baker and Scotland are all still waiting to be adopted and the co-hosts are asking everyone to find it in their hearts to adopt a rescue dog from their show.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Chris Brown Today Show Flash Mob Apology
There was quite an event happening outside the Today Show studio April 1 2013 and it was not an April Fools prank. Chris Brown made quite an entrance on the show when he started dancing with a flash mob that took up the entire plaza.
After his dance moves awed everyone in the crowd, he headed into the studio where he sat down with Matt Lauer and apologized for everything he has done to Rihanna. He said the rumors are true that they are back together, and he said he knows everything he has done in the past was wrong and he is trying to right those wrongs in their new relationship. He told Lauer he knows he has to prove himself to Rihanna and he has to be a better man for her.
Hoda was a bit skeptical it seemed. She said this kind of apology is something you have to show to someone and not the type of situation where you can just say “sorry” and move on with the relationship. Do you think Chris Brown will go back to his woman abusing ways? Or was his apology sincere and he has turned over a new leaf?

Kathie Lee and Hoda said the injury was so horrific they couldn’t show it on television, instead showing photos and video of coaches and even players from the other team crying because of the injury.
Regardless of his injury, while Ware was being rolled off the floor on a stretcher, the only thing he kept repeating to his team was that they needed to win the game for him and they did in a decisive 85-63 victory over Duke.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Sara Haines April Fools Pranks
Sara Haines is quite the prankster and she put her pranking skills, and everyone else’s nerves, to the test on April Fools’ Day.

Tamron Hall was next up and Haines scared her by placing a fake cockroach under her notecards. Finally, Kathie Lee was given a cookie filled with salt instead of sugar but she didn’t seem to get the prank. She just kept telling Haines her homemade cookies tasted terrible.
