there or had one of her advisors sit

Joyce, the national's senate called

it a stunt, I don't think I would go

that far but it is not as nasty an

incident as it first sounded. Thank

you for the wrap up. From one political scandal to another. And in the United States, a Republican senator who once denounced president Bill Clinton for his affair with Monica Lewinsky has confessed to an affair with one of his campaign aides. John Ensign is considered the Republican Party's greatest hope for the 2012 presidential elections. So will this controversy spell the end of his chances?

I dit not have sexual relations with

that woman. Sex scandals are nothing new in Washington. But few have made headlines like the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky affair.

Indeed I did have a relationship

with her that was not appropriate.

In fact, it was wrong. At the time, one of the most vocal critics of president Clinton was Republican senator John Ensign.

He denounced Mr Clinton as a disgrace and called for his resignation. A decade later and now it's Ensign who's making the news. Last year I had an affair. I violated the vows of marriage. It's absolutely the worse thing I've done in my life. If there was ever anything that I can take back in my life,

this would be it. I take full responsibility for my actions. The woman in question has been identified as Cindy Hampton a campaign staffer whose husband, Doug, worked in Ensign's Senate office. That closeness put me into situations during a very difficult time in my marriage which led to my inappropriate behaviour.

A lawyer for the Hamptons released this statement to the US media. Ensign is largely viewed within the Republican Party as a strong contender for the 2012 elections. A Christian conservative, he's been a vocal advocate for family values and an opponent of abortion and gay marriage.

As for the people he's paid to represent, responses have been mixed. As a public leader, you shouldn't be involved in extra-marital affairs. I think it just makes them more human and humans make mistakes - that doesn't necessarily mean that you need to give up your career. But there's something to be said for somebody being truthful, though. But for some observers, the timing of the scandal couldn't be better planned. The

The timing of senator Ensign fessing

up to the extra mare taltle up to the extra mare taltle affairs

could be a sign he has lofty goal

ahead, to get the scandal out of the

way now than later when it could be more damaging. As for the Senator's personal life, the real challenge will be making amends with his wife. I am truly blessed to have a wife like Darlene who has found it in her heart to forgive me.

Last year we sought counselling and through the strength of family and friends,

we have rebuilt our marriage to where now it's even stronger than ever. Senator Ensign isn't the only US politican making headlines today. There's been a dip in approval ratings for President Obama. So is the honeymoon finally over? More on that one later this hour.

Moving on and it's one of the most anticipated follow-up movies of all time - Sacha Baron Cohen's latest project, 'Bruno'. For months now, the gay Austrian fashion journalist has been plaguing magazine covers, red carpet events and even the MTV awards.

Eminem, nice to meet you. Are you serious? But not everyone's laughing. Preview screenings of the movie have upset the gay community with concerns the character oversteps the line between satire and stereotype.

You may find this hard to believe, but I'm gay. OK. So what does this mean for the movie's impending release? Let's ask Hollyscoop.com's Diana Magpapian. Good morning, Diana. How has Sacha Baron Cohen dealt with the complaints from the gay community?

Well, insiders tell me he has gone

a screening and the audience wasn't

too receptive with some scenes. He

To the UK now and princes William and Harry may be in the middle of intense military training but they're still happy to take the mickey out of each other. The pair has spoken affectionately about living together and their sibling rivalry. Steven Douglas has the story. They've served in the armed forces for over four years but until now, these brothers in arms have never been stationed together.

It gives a new meaning to Royal Air Force training and today we got a rare glimpse of their life behind closed doors. We're brothers, not lovers. First time and last time we'll be living together, I assure you of that.

It has been a fairly emotional experience. Harry told us the other week that he did all the washing up? He does do a bit of the washing up and then he leaves most of it in the sink and then it comes back in the morning and I have to wash it up. Oh, the lies! Put these princes together and they're a bit of a double act.

It is a good deal. It's always best to plan for the future and most couples do. But there are some things that need to be discussed before they arise so that you're prepared. So what are the five conversations that every couple needs to have? Psychologist Jo Lamble joins us to bring us up to date. Morning, Jo. Before we get to the topics themselves, what's the best way to approach these conversations with your partner?

When we realise they have got to be

done. These are serious

conversations so they can't be had

on the hop. So set a meeting, set aside

on the hop. So set a meeting, set aside time and say this is what we

need to do. Be honest. There is no

need to do. Be honest. There is no point having the difficult

conversations if you are going to

hold back for fear of hurting

partner. Give warning of changes and

revisit. These are conversations you

have over and over again

have over and over again throughout

your relationship. When you say to

your significant other we need to

have a talk, it usually send them

running in the opposite direction.

One important decision is about

children. What should it children. What should it include?

Are we going to have children, if

so, how many. so, how

so, howMany. You have it before but

you do need to have it as you go on.

How will we raise them, with

religion, schooling, the family

values. Who will be their gar

guardian. If anything happens to us,

who would look after our children.

It is very important. Finance is one the things that the things that cause tension in a

relationship. What topics need to be

discussed am? Whether you are going

to pool the money, which is my

prefered option, rather than having

your money and my money. Who is

going to control the finances. Who

is going to pay the bills, you both

make decisions but who will be in

ultimate control and what it will be

spent on. Are you going to look at

putting money into a house or invest in

in shares? Are you going to think

about private education or would you

rather make sure you have a decent

holiday most years? Those are

ongoing conversations you want to

have because they point out

differences. Something we can't

predict is our health. What should

we look at when it comes to health?

Of course, if you commit to

Of course, if you commit to someone it is sickness and health. It would

go without saying you would help if anything is wrong. But anything is wrong. But you need to

think about life insurance and your

wills. Make sure they are up to

date. Talk about organ donation very

early. A very important one. And

funeral arrangements. It seems

funeral arrangements. It seems early to be discussing it but it is really

hard if someone is grief-stricken by

suddenly losing their partner to not

know if they prefered to be crumated

or buried. It really helps if you

have that hard discussion. have that hard discussion. As the

population ages the conversation

about careing for elderly parents

will ab rise more frequently? You

are talking about whataus you

consider. Again, have it way

consider. Again, have it way before it is necessary. But is it going to

be an option that your elderly

parent or parents would move in with

you? Should your family consider

move nothing to your parent's house

or would care facilities be a

betterau? But have the conversation

as you go through life together

because it makes it much easier when

you get the phone call and someone

needs you and under stress you have

to make the important decisions. Do

you discuss what happens if either

of you change your feelings about

these issues? The saddest thing I

find, it is not just changing your

mind about the things you talked

mind about the things you talked about but just how you are feeling.

The saddest thing is couples come in

and are ready to leave the

relationship and say they have been

happy for a long time. You need to

sit down and ask your partner for

what you need and give them time to

think about what you are suggesting.

It might be a major change in career

or family set up and revisit the

Coming up - the topless sunbakers causing problems at a construction site. Now here's Glenn with some tips on getting into the greatest shape of your life. With obesity on the rise, are you concerned about your weight, are you struggling to lose those love handles or embarrassed about the beer belly? Say farewell to the muffin top hanging over the jeans because Katie is here with fun and extremely easy way to lose that weight, right? That's right. It is called the AbCircle Pro. It is the easiest way I know to blast that fat off forever. Blast away, baby because it sound like a lot of fun from what I'm hearing. What does the AbCircle Pro do that the others don't? The AbCircle Pro is an abdominal machine that targets your entire core, upper, middle and lower abs, even your obliques, all in one circular motion. Even the obliques? And the fat, Katie - tell us about the fat. That is the best part. The AbCircle Pro aerobically burns the fat in just minutes. In fact, we guarantee with the AbCircle Pro system you will lose 5 kilos in the first 2 weeks or your money back. How about that?

Our viewers can lose 5 kilos in the first fortnight or their money back. The system works. I don't doubt that there but what makes it better than any of its competitors?

The secret is that the AbCircle Pro combines cardio and abs to burn fat while its unique friction-free track uses the momentum of gravity, to target your entire mid-section in one circular motion, firing your core like no other machine has ever done. Fantastic. Rachael, would you mind showing us how it all works? All you do is kneel in the comfortable memory foam pads

and swing from side to side on the friction-free track. It's that easy. It's like having a treadmill for your abs. You are doing your cardio training and ab exercises at the same time to burn flat and flatten your stomach. I tell you what, it looks like fun - and it makes for a faster workout?

It sure does. And this thermal imaging shows AbCircle Pro targets your entire core.

A complete 360 degrees. And it fires up faster than working on a treadmill so you burn fat quicker. Got to love you for that. So like a treadmill for your abs. Cardio and abs on the one machine?

Exactly. You simply remove the centre-locking pin and turn the AbCircle Pro into a fat-burning bun and thigh machine. Trimming your buns, hips and thighs in no time at all.

And no straining your back or neck. Trims those buns, girls - how about that? So it gets you off the floor? Absolutely. And it has three levels of resistance so it is perfect for any fitness level. Great. Imagine losing weight while you are watching the Morning Show,

for example. Best of all, it folds for easy storage, under the bed or even in a closet.

Aren't you a clever girl? Let's hear from some people who know and love the AbCircle Pro. I recommend the AbCircle Pro to my patients. If they use it properly in the first two weeks they will see great results. On the AbCircle Pro I lost almost three dress sizes in a few short weeks. I was a size 10 and now fit into a size 4 thanks to the AbCircle Pro system.

So why spend thousands of dollars on a cumbersome piece of equipment or gym membership? This could be the last fitness machine you'll possibly ever need. It is made from professional quality steel

and built to last, too. How much are we paying for it, Katie? The AbCircle Pro can be yours to try in your own home

for 30 days, risk-free, for just $29.90. If you call within the next 15 minutes we will send you the exclusive Lose Your Love Handle System which includes a 3-minute express workout DVD and nutritional guide, absolutely free.

Everything you need to transform your body from flab to ab,

you've got to love that. Call the number below now and I will even pay your shipping and handling. God love you, Katie. Free postage and handling, that's great. Call right now, take the ride of your life and get the body of dreams, and you check it all out on yahoo7.com.au or of course, take a look at 'New Idea' magazine.

But straight ahead, Obama prepares to face his critics. So is this the end of the President's popularity? You're watching the Morning Show right around Australia.

Right, class, so picking up on... VOICEOVER: When your kid skips breakfast, it's harder to concentrate and things can get a bit fuzzy in the classroom. (MUFFLED VOICE) But research shows that a nutritious breakfast like Sultana Bran

It seems not a day goes by without the Obama family dominating the headlines. Whether it's the Michelle's wardrobe or Bo's new soft-toy line,

the Obamas are a global phenomenon. But after five successful months in power, it seems the President's dream run with voters may have come to an end.

So is the President's honeymoon really over? Change has come to America. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE It was the election that captivated the world. And at its centre - Barack Obama.

A leader who represented a new era in American, and global, politics.

Today I say to you that the

challenges we face are real. They

are serious and they are many. They

will not be met easily. Or in a

short span of time,

short span of time, but know this

America, they will be met! For a while it looked like Obama-mania had no limits. But now, just five months into office, the President's approval ratings have suffered a serious blow.

The honeymoon is coming to an The honeymoon is coming to an end

for President Obama. But it is not

personal, it is professional as the

personal, it is professional as the public appears to be judgeing the

President on some of his acs. Right

President on some of his acs. Right now there is a growing concern bout

the budget deficit and the

government interaction into the

economy on things like GM. So has Obama's halo finally slipped? Voters are divided. I think the people like him personality-wise, he comes across very positive. Policy-wise, it's difficult because things haven't changed that much. He's got a big job, he's got to make a difference in a lot of areas and he's got to do it now. At the crux of the problem? A struggling US economy, high unemployment and a record budget deficit. While 72% of Americans say Obama inherited the failing economy from his predecessors, they still demand action. Where are we going to get the money to get rid of it? Obama has responded with new plans to fix the financial industry and prevent a future global economic crisis. We have crafted reforms that grapple with this crisis and make changes so this doesn't happen again.

To spin point the structural

weaknesses athat allowed for this

crisis and to make sure the problems

are dealt with to prevent crisis in are dealt with to prevent crisis in

the future amch. We are going to

bring everyone together to take a

broader view and a longer view and

to solve problems and over site before they can become crisis. But critics maintain it may be too little, too late. Polls say 60% of voters believe Obama is at least focused on all the issues facing America. But those issues are numerous. Health care. Same-sex relationships. Guantanamo Bay. But most importantly, the realisation that in politics, hope and idealism aren't always enough.

We have this bill with no estimate

as to how much it is supposed to

cost. Major secks are i missing,

costs can't be analysed,

implications of it

implications of it haven't been implications of it haven't been fully thought out. On the flip side, as a family, the Obamas' popularity continues to rise. Michelle Obama is the most popular First Lady in years. While daughters Sasha and Malia have become tween icons. The President certainly has no problem drawing a crowd wherever he goes. (CHEERING) But as for his policies? Only time will tell.

It remains to be seen whether a lot

of these initiatives are actually

going to work. The jury is out. Only

and a staff member came to collect the 2-year-old who then started crying. saying no such rule exists. Greens leader Bob Brown objected the debate about kids in Parliament. But nevertheless it's reignited So what do our Friday Jury think? from 'Home and Away' It's over to Lynne McGranger and Paul Murray from Triple M. Good morning. in Parliament? Lynne, should children be allowed

Simple answer: no. I don't believe

children should be allowed in the

work place, full stop. If it were

another job, a butcher's shop or a

fireman or something like that,

children would not be allowed in the

work place. So get a creche. I mean,
