Cate Edwards gives exclusive interview to NBC News

Cate Edwards, the oldest daughter of John and Elizabeth Edwards, has given a "candid" interview to Savannah Guthrie of the "Today" show. The interview will air on Friday, March 29, on "Today" (7 a.m.) and on "Rock Center with Brian Williams" (10 p.m.). Both of those shows air locally on WNCN, NBC-17.

According to an NBC news release, Cate Edwards talks to Guthrie about losing her mother to breast cancer, about her father's affair with Rielle Hunter, and about the baby her father had with Hunter -- Cate's half-sister Quinn.

Below is an excerpt from the interview, as provided by NBC.

Pittsboro's Goathouse Refuge to be featured on 'Today' show

The Goathouse Refuge, a unique 16-acre cat sanctuary located outside of Pittsboro, will be featured on the "Today" show Thursday morning.

According to the Goathouse Refuge website, the segment will air in the second half-hour of the show, but the website also says "Today" airs at 8 a.m. -- it actually starts at 7 a.m. So just to be safe, you might want to record the whole show to make sure you get it.

"Today" airs locally on WNCN (also known as NBC-17).

The Goathouse Refuge gained national attention earlier this year when they were featured in a beautifully written front page story in The New York Times.

The News & Observer wrote about the sanctuary's role in helping local autistic children in May of 2012 and again this January for a story about animal advocates working to reduce euthanasia rates for cats.

If you miss the segment on television, check the "Today" show website for video later Thursday afternoon.

Winning? Charlie Sheen's 'Today' show interview (VIDEO)

When Charlie Sheen says he's not using drugs, I think what he really means is, "I'm using a lot of drugs." (Actually, I'll note that '20/20' gave him a drug test, which he passed, meaning he's obviously just full-blown crazy at this point).

Here's Sheen's interview with 'Today,' which aired this morning. Sheen says he plans to sue CBS for yanking 'Two and a Half Men.'

'Today' will air more of the Sheen interview on Tuesday morning's show, and ABC will air their Sheen interview Tuesday night at 10pm on '20/20.'

Update: Sheen gave another even more bizarre interview to TMZ today. Right after that happened, his longtime publicist resigned. Can't say I blame him.

Retired Durham teacher on 'Today Show' Wednesday

Joe Liles, retired art teacher at the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics, appears on the Today Show Wednesday morning in an interview feature called "Your Life Calling with Jane Pauley."

Liles' interview is part of the show's monthly series on "people older than 50 who are pursuing their dreams," Liles said. It is scheduled between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m.

"A former student of mine called them up and told them about me hiking the Appalachian Trail, and they contacted me," he said.

Liles hiked the entire trail, from Georgia to Maine, after he retired from 28 years at NCSSM. He started March 9, 2009 and finished Sept. 15 (right), along the way sending regular "Trail Reports" to friends via email.

Since then, he said, he has made six trips back to hike favorite sections again. Part of the interview was taped on the trail in upstate New York.

Before retiring, he led two short classes in which students retraced the pre-Columbian route of Fish Dam Road from the Neuse River to Hillsborough.

In retirement, Liles said, he is "busy at home with artwork and some creative writing" and tours with a Lumbee Indian singing group called Southern Sun.

Amy Sedaris crafts with whacked out Kathie Lee & Hoda

Watch Sedaris talk about her new book, "Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People" while she demonstrates a few crafts for her excruciatingly silly hosts.
