The day before taping, Lisa and producer Eric meet with Sheri and Oprah. "Going into the pre-show for the virgins with Oprah, I felt good," Lisa says. "Then Oprah immediately threw a wrench at us."

Oprah couldn't remember having ever approved the topic. "What's wrong with being a 30-year-old virgin?" Oprah says. "It's OK if you're a 30-year-old virgin." 

Watch Oprah debate the producers 

When the meeting ends, the producers understand they don’t see eye-to-eye with Oprah, but the more important question is what this means for the show taping in 12 hours. "If Lisa and Eric have booked guests with depth and layers, it's going to be a home run," Sheri says. "If we don't do that, it's not going to be a pretty story."
