>>> hey, everybody, welce, welcome, it is fun-day monday, may 6th . in that sense, it's a lovely day . but we also want you to know that it's melanoma monday. hoda, i know you don't like to wear your sunscreen, but if you wear your little bracelet from now on, it might remind you. where's your pink bracelet?
>> i gave it to someone.
>> your ring?
>> i pay it forward.
>> just in time for melanoma monday. by the way --
>> you had a big weekend .
>> let's talk about charleston , south carolina . we had such fun. unbelievable. what a crazy party it was. i didn't know those people were that wild, did you?
>> but they're not wild, crazy. they're wild, fun. you know what i'm saying? they're not the kind of crazy where you go, this is not going to end well. you know it's going to end well.
>> can you read about charleston , south carolina , where we spent thursday and friday all you want. it is so much better than advertised in all the brochures, isn't it? you read about how beautiful and great it is, and you get there and you go, this is so much better than anything i've read.
>> and the food, why didn't anybody tell me it was the best food we ever had.
>> it was sick, it was disgusting we ate so much. the food was off the chain, it was so delicious.
>> we had an absolute ball. so thank you for your lovely southern hospitality .
>> why don't we just watch it again. it was a crazy crowd, you guys.
>> that hat. i love those hats.
>> so we were off a little . anyway, we did have fun. birds soaring, lord. we had a ball.
>>> from there, hoda's week was just basically beginning.
>> i did a couple of book signs, one at the morristown medical center in jersey. right ter we landed. a great bunch of people. i want to thank everybody, they bought books, we talked, we read, we signed.
>> how long was it?
>> probably around that.
>> thanks for that.
>>> and i ended up going to another little place called true grace for a book signing the next day. but, however, this saturday night, if you were home tucked in watching "snl," had you some fun. as you guys know, martha stewart has been on match.com looking for a man.
>> she's trying it out, test-driving match. she's figured there's got to be some guys out there. "snl" decided to have a little fun.
>> how could they not? let's take a look.
>> match.com because i want a successful man for intercourse. and i've had it before and i'd like it again.
>> match.com helps you find someone who shares my interest. like dancing.
>> whimsical window eggs. mack roons and of course, the simple elegance of a good bang.
>> the website that knows exactly what you're looking for.
>> i want a guy who is kind.
>> rough, like a rustic burlap wedding invitation .
>> someone with calloused hands and no debt. someone who can work my body.
>> why join match?
>> because it's fun, because it's easy.
>> because i'm martha [ bleep ] stewart andky do whatever i want.

>> you can't set yourself up like that.
>> and they say they're bringing a couple of guys in for her on friday.

>> i think so, that will be very interesting.
>> what kind of a guy, though? would you be, if you want -- i mean --
>> i don't know. it's going to be really interesting. i don't know how they're picking. there's a whole bunch of people on match and they have to narrow it down to the few that would work with maha.
>> we wish her all the best. we just want her to be happy.
>> now someone who is very happy but might have jumped the gun a little bit is little miss miley cyrus .
>> she may be, according to a tweet of her own, she may be one of the top, she may be the top hottest person on "maxim" top 100 hottest list. i know everyone is waiting patiently for the list to come out. i guess she tweeted somebody and she didn't realize it had not been made public yet. they're going to be talking about it here on the show.
>> on thursday, "maxim." she probably got a little excited.
>> her short haircut, i've noticed other young kids are getting that cut.
