Leslie and Sheri in control room

2 of 5
Leslie left the preshow meeting feeling confident, but the morning of taping is another story. "The show is about to start and it just seemed like everybody was one step behind," she says. "Here we are scrambling with facts and figures at the very last minute. Everything has to be accurate."

Ready or not, the show must go on. "All right, let's get happy," executive producer Sheri says.

Near the top of the show, Oprah mentions Goldie's foundation and Sheri calls for B-roll videotape to play. Unfortunately, it's been left out of the script and can't be cued up. "I don't know where it is," Leslie says. "The show is just sort of getting off to a rocky start."
