Transcript for Miss World Pageant Cutting Swimsuit From Competition
And we'll be heading out to see you shortly. But first, we're going to heat things up in "Pop news." That's right. Here's what's popping. Good morning. And what you're about to see, this year's miss world from South Africa is the last one to have tower a bikini on stage. That is right. This is the bikini ban heard around the world. For the first time in 63 years, the miss world pageant will no longer feature swim suit as part of the organization. I don't care if someone has a bottom two inches bigger than someone else's, we are not looking at that. We are listening to her speak. They want to focus on beauty with a purpose. I like that. Amen. Thank you. Really, really great. Also in "Pop news." We have an update on Obie who made headlines two years ago when he was rescued. Do you remember, George? Obie weighed in at a startling 77 pounds. And now today, proud to say that is Obie who has shed more than 50. The dachshund is now a hot dog truly. Look. So hot that Obie has his own calendar this year, showing him in various shots. Obiedog.com. The secret is getting him off of human food, two meals a day and lots of exercise. Aside from the human food, we need that. But smaller meals. It wasn't him feeding himself. No. It wasn't Obie's fault. No. I'm glad everything's working out. He's doing just fine. Control problems. Yes. And dog food really is good for dogs. It is better. Moral of the story. And finally in "Pop news." A little real estate. There's a reason I'm playing the theme of one of my favorite cartoons of all time. The home of dick Clark in malibu just sold, and pictures of it made me wonder with the late, great producer might have had something to do with the success of the flintstones cartoon. Certainly inspired by it. Check this out. A very distinct similarity to Fred and Wilma's home with modern updates. He wanted to appease conservationists who didn't want him building on the edge of a national park overlooking the mountain. It's blended into the rocky mountains. The views are said to be unrivalled. It was on the market for $3.25, it went for $1.777. Which guarantees that the new owners are saying Ya baa da baa doo. It's one bathroom. Unrivalled use. More bathrooms, maybe not. You have a quarry -- I thought it was an interesting juxtaposition of dick Clark and the style of the home. Thank you. I thought I would share that with you. I love the interior design. Yes, you do. And that is "Pop news" checking out.
