Five-Year-Old YouTube Makeup Expert Makes Over 'GMA' Ladies

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 22nd 2011 12:20PM
Five-year-old makeup guru Madison Hohrine on 'Good Morning America'Should a five-year-old be giving advice on anything? If it's YouTube sensation Madison Hohrine, whose makeup tutorials have garnered over a million views, quite possibly. Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Bianna Golodryga and Robin Roberts got some tips on makeup from Madison.

Madison thought both of them looked pretty, but said that Roberts could use blush on her cheeks. Golodryga also needed some blush, and also some pink lipstick and purple eye shadow. "Clearly I needed a lot more help than you did," joked Golodryga, addressing Roberts. "I love when someone says, 'You're pretty, but...'" said Roberts.

For the record, Madison's mom has stated in the notes of at least one of her YouTube videos that she doesn't let Madison wear makeup, and that mom lets Madison borrow her makeup -- Madison has none of her own. That is, until the sponsors start calling ...

'GMA' Investigates Fried Kool-Aid, America's Latest and Greatest Delicacy (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 21st 2011 1:40PM
Fried Kool Aid on 'Good Morning America'There are few things known to man that American chefs haven't tried to fry. Proof of that appeared Tuesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) in the form of fried Kool-Aid, a new delicacy pioneered by a man named Chicken Charlie, a food vendor at the San Diego County Fair. Using a concoction of cherry-flavored Kool-Aid, water and flour, his ingenious creation looks like a sweet potato and, according to customers, tastes like a doughnut.

According to the story, Charlie went through 150 pounds of Kool-Aid powder in his opening weekend. Customers raved about it; Charlie said he knew it was going to be a big seller, but wasn't expecting the nationwide attention he's gotten for it. Kool-Aid certainly sounds tastier than some other things he's tried. "I will fry anything," said Charlie. "I fried a gentleman's shoe and a customer took a bite of it and she loved it".

Back in New York, the crowd outside the 'GMA' studio seemed to enjoy the fried Kool-Aid creation. Robin Roberts even went so far as to say it "tastes like Kool-Aid." Go figure.

Cameron Diaz on 'Good Morning America'Cameron Diaz made some very specific choices for her title role in the new film 'Bad Teacher.' Monday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), she explained one of the more prominent choices, displaying her character's consumer nature by constantly eating the worst junk food she could find in every scene. The crew didn't think she'd be able to handle it, but she enjoyed herself.

"She's always taking, taking," said Diaz. "So I decided that I was gonna, in every scene, be eating something or drinking something or chewing on something. So I, the whole film, all I did was ... and all the worst foods like corn dogs and fried chicken. It was really just an excuse to eat all of that bad food."

The prop guys had a spit bucket ready for her, but she declined and just ate the food. They christened her "The Intestinator" for her iron constitution.

Selena Gomez on 'Good Morning America'Selena Gomez already had a high profile of her own, starring in Disney's 'The Wizards of Waverly Place,' working on a burgeoning film career, and touring as a singer. Add the fact that she's dating young superstar Just Bieber, and life can get a bit frantic, as she explained Friday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Gomez, who turns 19 in July, said she has already wasted too much time worrying about it.

Gomez was asked how she handles all of the scrutiny. "I'm young," she said, "and I spent the first three years hiding and terrified of things like that. So I'm just sort of enjoying being young and just having fun and focusing on my fans and my music."

George Stephanopoulos discusses Anthony Weiner on 'The View'Anthony Weiner resigned his position as U.S. Representative Thursday in the wake of a scandal that involved his sending lewd photos of himself to women via Twitter. His behavior shocked many, including 'Good Morning America' co-host George Stephanopoulos, who spoke on the subject Thursday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC).

"I was, you know, as shocked as anybody else just by the compulsion that he demonstrated," said Stephanopoulos. "You heard the first story, said 'Well, this might be true.' But then he came out and talked to every single reporter in the country and said it's not true, I'm the victim here. That's what surprised me."

Just hours after Weiner's resignation, Sherri Sherpherd wondered if he could recover from the scandal. Stephanopoulos noted that Weiner has spent his whole working life in politics and he is a smart guy. But he made the point that before he did anything else, Weiner would have to get himself straightened out and settle things with his family.

Ryan and Tatum O'Neal on 'Good Morning America'Those who enjoyed watching the father-and-daughter team of Ryan and Tatum O'Neal in 1973's 'Paper Moon' might have thought they were seeing an ideal Hollywood family. It was clear that the pair worked well together -- Tatum, then 10 years old, became the youngest person to win an Oscar when she claimed Best Supporting Actress. Thursday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), the pair talked about how they might use that on-screen chemistry to help resolve decades of estrangement on their new OWN reality series, 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals.'

"It was a way back," said Ryan. "There weren't that many paths. This looked promising because we work well together. We have a history. I thought maybe we could make more history."

Tatum agreed it would be a good setting. "We do work well together," she said. "Let's have that conversation in a work setting and we will sort of find our way back that way."

There was a light moment when Robin Roberts said there were two sides to the story. "Well, then let's hear mine," quipped Ryan. "Perfect," replied Tatum. The pair agreed their lives would be enriched by reconciling, and at the very least, the comic timing is still there.

Barry Manilow performing 'Bring On Tomorrow' on 'Good Morning America'Barry Manilow recalled Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) that he was 30 years old when the song 'Mandy' made him a star. Despite his maturity, dealing with that precipitous fame was an adjustment for him, and he marveled at how much more quickly that happens to younger entertainers these days. The topic interested him so much, he named his new album '15 Minutes: FAME ... Can You Take It?'

"My partner Nick Anderson and I, we watched Britney Spears get hounded by the paparazzi," said Manilow. "She couldn't go to Starbucks. She couldn't even live her life, you know? And that didn't happen to me when I was starting off. But it does to these young people."

Manilow also performed his song 'Bring On Tomorrow,' a sweeping piano ballad from the new album, his first of all-new original material since 2001's 'Here at the Mayflower.'

Lara Spencer tries out for Cirque du Soleil on 'Good Morning America'Cirque du Soleil doesn't just take anyone off the street who can do strange, bendy things in the air. It takes a lot of time, hard work and dedication, as Lara Spencer found out Tuesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Spencer put herself through aerial training and took a spin on the "Wheel of Death" with the cast of 'Zarkana,' Cirque du Soleil's new show in New York City.

"It's one thing to play dress-up in the Cirque performer's clothing," said Spencer. "It's quite another to walk in their shoes." Spencer had a little trouble with a spinning-hoop stunt. "Even barely moving, I'm dizzy and dazzled by the difficulty of this trick." She did a bit better with a wire-aided backflip.

The main stunt was the aforementioned "Wheel of Death," which looks like two hamster wheels spinning on an axle suspended above the stage. Spencer went three rounds with that but didn't like it one bit. If they need another woman for the show, Spencer thinks Robin Roberts would do nicely.

White also mentioned that 'Cleveland' will visit Amish country in one episode, which features White's character Elka on the lam, using only her flirting skills to stay one step ahead of the law.

The Go-Go's Reprise Their Reunion on 'GMA' (VIDEO)

The Go-Go's perform 'We Got the Beat' on 'Good Morning America'The Go-Go's reunited for a farewell tour last summer, which cut short when guitarist Jane Wiedlin fell and hurt herself when combining a hike with an homage to 'Star Wars,' as Wiedlin explained this morning on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). The farewell tour was canceled, and now that the reunion is finally happening, the group is working on new music.

"I went on a midnight hiking outing with light sabers and had a light saber battle at the top of a mountain and then when I was coming down the mountain I fell off a cliff," explained Wiedlin. She got a knee replacement out of the experience, and the band got some new creative juice. "Last summer's tour was going to be the farewell tour, this tour is just the, ah, we don't really know what we're doing tour."

The band then showed off its renewed vigor with a version of 'We Got the Beat' that was somehow much more muscular sounding than when the song was first released 30 years ago on the Go-Go's debut album 'Beauty and the Beat.'

Head over to AOL Music for a chance to win an autographed vinyl copy of the Go-Go's 'Beauty and the Beat.'

Lady Gaga on 'Good Morning America'Lady Gaga gave her fans the usual spectacle in her performance this morning on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), which included several dancers, costumes and gliding over the audience to the stage via a zip line. She stuck around afterward to answer questions from her fans about her music and career.

One fan wrote to ask what career Gaga would have pursued if she weren't famous. "I would still be a singer, I just wouldn't be famous," she said. "That would be so awful, wouldn't it? if I just gave up because nobody bought my music? I mean, I just really love what I do."

A quick costume change and it was back to the music, this time in a shiny pointy black jacket and a kind of cheetah-at-the-beach ensemble.

Sam Champion Takes Terrifying Roller Coaster Rides With Bert the Conqueror (VIDEO)

Sam Champion and Bert Kreischer of 'Bert the Conqueror' on 'Good Morning America'For the Reality Week Challenge on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Sam Champion drew 'Bert the Conqueror,' and wound up taking on, as he described them, "two of the most terrifying rides you could ever strap yourself into." One was a wooden roller coaster that gets as tall as 100 feet high, and plunges you to the bottom at 60 miles per hour.

"Between the two of us, we sounded like a women's Wimbledon match," said 'Conqueror' host Bert Kreischer, giving his quick impression of the staccato screams he and Champion let out on the ride.

That was nothing compared to a swing the positions you face down as it takes over a 1300-foot drop over a cliff. Champion may not have eased his death grip on Kreischer's arm yet.
