So now T.I. is still talking about the dumb comments that he made about his daughter’s virginity. Remember he was braggin’ about taking his 18-year-old daughter to the gynecologist and making sure that she’s still a virgin, and we all disagreed with that. Even Gloria Steinhem spoke out. It was a big deal, like a violation of a girl’s privacy. Anyway, so he and his wife, Tiny, went on the Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett and you take a look and then we’ll discuss. From a place of truth, I began to embellish and exaggerate. And I think that a lotta people took it extremely literal. I never said I was in any exam room. That is an assumption. That is a falsity. Got it. I never said that it was being done present day, as a 18-year-old. She was 15 or 16 years old at the time. And I never said that her mother wasn’t present. (audience murmurs) First of all, I really like his blouse. (audience laughs) I did, I did. That was no shade, I did. Anyway, yeah. (audience laughs) Why not? It looks very fancy. Anyway, I personally, when I heard this story, I never thought that he was in the examination room while his daughter was akimbo in the stirrups. (laughs) You know what I mean? I figured that he was in the doctor’s office waiting for his daughter then get dressed and then the three of them are in there. It’s still a violation and he’s still talkin’ too much. And his daughter still hasn’t commented and as far as why it took him so long to comment about this is ’cause his daughter blocked him from her social media, and I think she shut it down at one point, didn’t she? Yep. But now, he’s addressing it on the Red Table. I no longer care about the story. (audience laughs) A violation is a violation. He also explains why he’s more concerned about his daughter’s virginity than his son’s. Take a look. I made the comparison of a son versus a daughter. If my son goes out and gets a girl pregnant, how is the household changed for those nine months? The household does not necessarily change those nine months, whereas if my daughter come home, my household has changed immediately. (audience murmurs) The more he talks, the more of an ass he looks like. (audience laughs) (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) What are you talkin’ about? If your son gets a girl pregnant, your household still change, sir. (audience murmurs) Your son, for that nine months and the next 18 and 55 years of his life, your household still changes, sir. Yes. (audience applauds) What is he trying to say? Shut up. (audience laughs) By the way, a shout out to Hoda. Hoda, congratulations. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Yeah. It’s a cautionary tale for those of you girls who have given up on love ’cause you’re a particular age or whatever. She was dating her boyfriend, Joel Schiffman. He’s 61, she’s 55. They were dating for six years. So they went to Mexico for a weekend to one of their favorite places that they like to go to in Mexico, and after dinner on the beach, he pulled out the ring. Aw. Uh-huh. (laughs) (audience applauds) Wow. So pretty. Okay. Aw. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Yeah, yeah. Good for her. She’s one of my favorite people, you know what I’m saying? It’s a four and a half carat radiant cut diamond. Ooh. It’s azure shaped with a blue halo sapphire around it. Now some of the jewelers are weighing in, okay. Some jewelers say it looks like it’s three carats. Other are saying, well, it looks like it’s five carats. I don’t know whether it’s four and a half carats. It looks good to me. Yeah. Okay? (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Okay. And then some diamond experts are saying, the jewelers, that it’s worth $250,000, maybe more. Others are like no, that’s $40,000. Look, stop hatin’ on her situation. The point being that they got two adopted daughters and they love each other. And she’s got a solid job. And apparently, he knows how to take care of his own bills, and Hoda and the girls. So congratulations to Hoda and Joel. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Uh-huh. I watched Dancing With The Stars for one beat last night. (audience laughs) And I was just in time to see Cher do the “Do You Believe In”, did you see it? I saw it, yep. I was only there for that and I literally stopped. She was good. Uh-huh. Right.
You know what, if anything, the dancers around her were distracting, like more camera time to Cher. She looked terrific and she was dancin’. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) And then, I got the cats in the hotel so I got this big, giant, delicious kale salad that I don’t have to worry about puttin’ in the closet when I go to the bathroom ’cause then they hop on the bed and their noses are, you know how they are. But I had this big kale salad with everything, anchovies and the whole bit. And I’m eatin’ and they’re over in the hotel and I’m preparin’. Thanksgiving is this week. I’m travelin’ and stuff. But I was caught up in a back to back episode, actually, it was a marathon of American Greed. I’m sorry, CSNBC is the best. And then I was switchin’ back and forth between that and MSNBC, I was watching Rachel Maddow. Who by the way, (audience applauds) Rachel is looking better and better. You look really good, Rach. Yeah. (audience applauds) And I don’t mean that in a how you doin’ way. (audience laughs) Right? And so in between commercials of everything, I go on the Googler schmoogler and I go to Radar Online, speaking of how you doin’, and I see that Rob Shuter, Norman? Uh-huh. Did you see that? No. He’s insinuating that something romantical is going on between me– I did see that. Between me and Robyn Crawford. Yeah, I saw that. Oh. Uh-huh.
I saw that this morning. Uh-huh. Look, Mr. Short Arms. (audience laughs) Friend of the show though. I am no lesbian. I like women for friendship. I like men and I like the D. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Suzanne? Yeah. Wow. Well, you know how lunchtime or somethin’ like that on the weekend, you might hang out with one of your friends who happens to be a lesbian? Doesn’t, okay, no. Okay. (audience laughs) No, I might have some lesbian, I have some lesbian friends and some gay friends. They titled the article “Wendy’s been looking for female companionship.” Oh, that’s ridiculous. And Whitney’s turning over in her grave. Oh. Because Wendy has found it in Robyn Crawford. No. That’s not true. And I’m like, first of all, I’m not down with that, all due respect to the lesbians. Second of all, (audience applauds) Robyn is really married. She’s got kids and I’m not a homewrecker. Yeah. Number one. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Okay? I’ve never even been curious. Weird. You ever been curious? (audience murmurs) (audience laughs) Suzanne? Even in college? No, I might’ve kissed a girl once or twice. Did ya like it? But that’s it, that’s it. I wasn’t curious about beyond that. It’s so complicated being a woman. I just couldn’t imagine two of us in a relationship. (audience laughs) I mean yesterday, after the show, I got the surprise of my life. At 55, I got a period. Oh. Exactly. Exactly. I can’t deal with two of us under the same roof. (laughs) (audience laughs) Yeah. (audience applauds) Still goin’ on. I didn’t call my doctor because when you go through the menopause, they say you need 365 days of clean free and then you know you’re meno and pausal. (audience laughs) But I had a period last spring so I thought I was on my way ’cause I hadn’t had anything. They say once you get it, in menopause, then you have to start all over again. (audience murmurs) Is that what you’ve heard, Suzanne? Yep, so starting now, yes. Starting now. Yes, now, now you have to wait a whole ‘nother year for you to be in the menopausal situation. I don’t wanna have a baby. I would give birth to a hazelnut at this point. (audience laughs)
(audience applauds) (Wendy hums a tune) I am so disgusted, it’s ridiculous. (audience laughs) Anyway, shout out to you, Robyn. You see what Rob Shuter was tryin’ to do. Rob, I still like you. You can still come over for the Inside Scoop but you better watch your huntee, ’cause I’m watchin’ you. (audience applauds) (Wendy laughs) Boobs all tender and stuff. I mean the full blown thing. Get outta here with this. Ugh. Bill Cosby, everybody, has spoke out for the first time since goin’ to prison. Oh. Well, he talked to somebody at BlackPress.com. (audience laughs) And he’s saying he feels no remorse for anything. Oh. And when he comes out on parole, which by the way, he has eight more years, so already, he’s 80? He’s 82. He’s 82. All right, he’ll be out for his 90th birthday. (laughs) Right. Yeah, sure. He says when he comes out for parole and stuff, he’s never gonna admit that he ever did anything wrong. Oh. He said the trial was a setup. We’re believing all lies. He called the jurors imposters and accused them of being paid off. Oh. You know what, even if he showed remorse, I still wouldn’t believe him, so to me, it doesn’t even matter what he says. You know what I’m sayin’? Clap if you think he should show remorse. (audience applauds) Why? Why? He would still be 90 and useless. He’s still not gonna, I just think he should shut up and do his time. Yes. Yeah, all right. So do we have part of that interview? Yeah. Okay, okay, good. Here’s what he said about how happy he is to be an advisor to the other inmates. (audience murmurs) I’ve got a wife and a family and friends, not in prison, who are so happy that I have something, that my spirit is up. So I go into my penthouse and I lay down and I start to think, now how can I write the message and say it and give it to them? (audience murmurs) Okay. You know what, you guys, I’m fair and I’m a straight shooter and I do have to say that other than hands on with these girls and being in prison, he had a position as the father of our country, to everybody, no matter what race you were. And as long as he’s in jail with the inmates, I’m glad that he’s happy advising them. What inmates are gonna say to, I mean when you go to jail for best I can tell, good morning, prisoners, (audience laughs) from best I’ve heard, they have it bad for you if you’re a child molester. Yeah. Or if you are a cop, you know what I mean? They wanna get you good. But I do believe that the prisoners probably listen to him. Look, my boy, you’re about to get out in two years. You’re only 27 years old. You need to do this, that and the third. I do think he’d be good advising and that, you know what I mean? I do. As far as, Norman? Huh? (laughs) Look. Now I do remember that when I talked about Camilla or Camille, his wife, and probably not messin’ with him anymore and the kids just are embarrassed to tell, I do recall that the Bureau said to me that he called up here lookin’ for me. That is true. He was looking for you. Or his team was looking for you. And did you all ever tell me that or did I deny it immediately? I think we did tell you. And it was like hell no? Yeah. (laughs) (audience laughs) Well, you know what, this is a new day. You ring up that old man on the phone. Okay. (laughs) And you figure this out, okay? (audience applauds) Love it. Now look, you told me that they wanted me to actually go up there, right, to the, well, I’m not doin’ that.
To the prison. (laughs) I’ve never been to a prison in my life, other than those three sufferable hours. (laughs) I’m listening. (laughs) Okay, no, I haven’t told you yet. You’ll find out soon. But no, I don’t wanna go to the prison. No. But I would love to have him on the phone and talk to him. Okay. All right.
Let’s make that happen. (audience applauds)
(Wendy laughs) And that’ll probably take several weeks to arrange, correct? Probably. Well, that’s good ’cause we have several weeks of vacation, it’s the holidays now. Perfect. So after the 1st of the year, maybe we can make that call happen here on Hot Topics. And in the meantime, you know what? (audience cheers)
