Oprah and Peter both say they are constantly asked about how Sharyn is doing. So in March 2008, four months after Sharyn and Marvin's fresh start, Peter dropped in for a surprise inspection to check on their progress.
When Peter walks into the house, he sees a clean living room. "It's beautiful," he says. "It's exactly as I remember—a couple of plastic bags, but that's not so bad."
Clothing used to be an issue for Sharyn, but not anymore. Her closets—even the sock drawers—are still perfectly organized. "Look at this house. It's like we left yesterday!" Peter says.
Still, Marvin has a few boxes to sort through. Peter makes a deal with him—if after six weeks he hasn't finished, Marvin must throw them out.
Peter is impressed. "From my heart, I could not be more blown away," he says.
"I'm glad I didn't disappoint you," Sharyn says.
