Celebrated design team Robert and Cortney Novogratz tell Ali about how they balance a successful business with raising seven kids in New York City...and how they ran out of names by the time they got to their fifth child. They say their new line at CB2 is inspired by their family trips to Brazil—including a monkey-shaped lamp they named after one of their daughters.
You may know the Novogratz from their Bravo show 9 By Design, or their HGTV show Home By Novogratz. But what Ali wanted to know was how they picked the names for all of their kids: Wolfgang, 15; twins Bellamy and Tallulah, 14; Breaker, 12; twins Five and Holleder, 7; and Major, 4.
Why Five? “He’s the fifth child,” says Cortney. “We ran out of names.”
They clearly got their inspiration back for Holleder and Major, but not without causing some tension in the extended family. “Robert’s mother, I’m not kidding you, wouldn’t talk to us for the longest time,” Cortney revealed. “Of course now, Five is her favorite grandson.”

Nyjah Huston started skateboarding at age four, and competed in his first X Games at 11. Now, at 18, he’s still one of the youngest competitors in his field. But just this past month, he brought home a gold medal, wowing the crowd with an impressive display of technical tricks.
Nyjah says that in his many years of skating, after countless dangerous tricks, he’s never broken anything. (Although he has done something called ‘sacking the rail,’ which sounds pretty painful.) He attributes a lot of his solid safety record to his diet. “I was raised vegan for the first 15 years of my life,” he says, “and I never drank any soda…it eats away at your bones!”
Nyjah has also started a charity with his mom called Let It Flow, which raises money to build wells and sanitation facilities for communities who need better access to clean water.
Nyjah also gave us a clip from his new skateboarding documentary, The Motivation, in which he shows off some of his death-defying moves.
One of his most dif...Read More »
Planning on cooking dinner this week? Whatever you do, don’t wash that chicken! Dr. Rich Besser from ABC news stopped to talk about his new book, Tell Me The Truth, Doctor, and he dropped that big truth bomb on Ali. “As soon as that water hits the surface of the chicken, it sprays all over your kitchen,” Dr. Besser warned. “You will find the germs from the surface of your chicken all over your cutting board, your light switches, everything.”
So what DO you do about all the bacteria that cover your raw chicken? “As long as you’re cooking your chicken thoroughly to 165 degrees, it’s gonna kill all of those germs,” he says.
Important health warning out of the way, Ali got down to the really embarrassing stuff—the stuff people are usually to shy to ask their doctors. Namely—should someone be worried if he or she farts too much? What about it they sweat too much? Or not at all?
To hear the doctor’s diagnoses, check out the video, and go to our Facebook page to tell your embarrassing medi...Read More »

Spring is here, the weather is changing, and so are celebrity hairstyles: Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore, and Beyonce recently went blonde. But going blonde can be risky sometimes, even for a Hollywood actress. Comedian Selena Coppock, author of a new book called, “The New Rules for Blondes,” joins Ali to talk about celebs who make it work, and those who don’t.
“I’m actually surprised you were able to do quite a thick book,” Ali tells Selena. “For a blonde…people expect a pamphlet from us.”
Selena and Ali broke it down into natural blondes and bottle blondes. Some of their favorite naturals? There’s Cameron Diaz, “a classic California blonde,” Cybill Shepherd, and “the spirit of blondeness,” Miss Piggy.
The best bottle blondes? Selena loves Madonna, a natural brunette who “lives the blonde dream,” Lady Gaga, and the quintessential bottle blonde, Marilyn Monroe.
The ladies also discussed celebs who can ‘go both ways’ as blondes and brunettes, throwing Linda Evangelista and Reese With...Read More »
- Daily Shot | Daily Shot | Wed, May 1, 2013 2:10 PM EDT | CommentsToday, Ali welcomes the multi-talented Joey Fatone! You of course know him from *NSYNC and Dancing with the Stars, and now he’s got a new show on the Live Well Network called on My Family Recipe Rocks!
Ali couldn’t let Joey off easy and not ask him about his *NSYNC days. After he revealed the band’s pre-show ritual that occasionally kept the audience waiting (check the video), he gave her his advice for the boy band of the moment, One Direction. “Stay off twitter. Back then with *NSYNC we we didn’t have Twitter, didn’t have Facebook. It’s such an immediate response on stuff now that you gotta kinda be a little careful.”
Joey’s new show, however, is all about food. “I go to people’s homes,” he explained, “I go ‘hey, whaddaya got cooking?’ They go ‘this is what it is,’ I eat their food and I go home. It’s great.”
The show features ordinary people in ordinary real kitchens, just cooking up what their family has passed down from generation to generation. The weirdest thing Joey’s eaten,...Read More »
