All right, let's clear here.

Here we go.

Five, four, three, two...

It's "America this morning."

I'm Jay, this is my girl, Candy.

And, of course, everybody knows

I'm an animal lover.

- Yes, we know that, Jay.

That's because you're an animal.

- Well, you're exactly right.

But, actually, i heard about

this town in Florida where

they're having a dog marathon.

- You're kidding.

No, I'm not kidding.

- All right, so that's 26.2 miles of loud,

dog barking and

dog fighting, and who exactly is

gonna clean up the poop

after this is all said and done?

Certainly not me.

But, listen, it's for charity,


It's a good thing.

- Oh, really?

What charity would that be,

the dumb ideas foundation?

Folks, my girl Candy,

i mean, she's a cat-lover.

She's a hater, Ok?

- Oh, I'm a hater, am I?

Yes, you are.

- All right, well, viewers,

we'd love to hear what you

think about this brilliant idea.

So, please, e-mail us, tweet us,

and we will weigh in this subject

at the end of the show.

Coming up next, we have a

brilliant wholistic doctor who

says that he has proof

that a rare mushroom can

cure cancer.

We'll be right back.

And we're clear.

- Can someone please explain to me,

why this is freezing?!



- After eight years of working together,

why would you refer to

me as a cat-person,

when you know i can't stand

animals of any kind?

It was for the segment, Ok?

You gonna be Ok?

Well, i just think it's a big

deal to falsely represent someone.

Here we go.

You know what?

In the future, would you please

just refrain from referring to

me as a dog-person or a cat-Person,

or even a goldfish-Person,

because that's not who I am.

- All right, whatever.

Are you gonna get over it, though?

Yes, I'm fine.

Where's my coffee?!

Can somebody get her some

coffee, please?

Thank you.

- That's right there.

Oh, boy.

- All right, folks,

here we go.

We're back in five, four, three,


- It doesn't make any sense.

Welcome back to

"America this morning."

Our next guest...

- We've confirmed for thursday, Candy.

Now, friday is the governor's ball...

we've not rsvped for

that, so are we a "go",

What are we doing?

- Ok, wait a minute,

It's this friday?

- Yes.

We need to cancel.

I have other plans.

You want to cancel

the governor's ball.

Yes, we need to cancel.

Tell him i came down with something.

Even though you were just

on the air looking perfectly


Tell him it happened after the show.

- Got it.

Also, one more thing.

- Yes?

Yesterday, i saw some crumbs

on my desk.

I don't know if they were muffin


or something like that, but are you

trying to ruin my career?

Candy, i didn't mean to bring

pastries around.

- We have talked about this

several times.

I'm on a very strict diet for

the next 90 days.

- I know that.

Which means that i can't be

around any sweets of any kind,

because even the smell of sweets

is total mayhem for me.

And I don't want to be in

chat rooms and on social media

where people are talking about

how i've just become this big fat cow,

and they put a picture of me

in the tabloids next to Shamu!

Candy, it won't happen again.

That's a relief.


Bye, thank you.

Muffin crumbs?


Don't you think you're

overreacting just a bit, Candy?

Louis, as a manager,

you of all people know how

vicious, sometimes, fans can be.

But that's your eighth

assistant this year.

Well, what is your point

about that?

I guess i have no point.

These just came in from that

F.A.N. Guy again.

That's the third time this
