Bridgette and Oprah

 

4 of 5
The morning of taping, Bridgette meets with Oprah to run through last-minute details of the show. "I've decided that I'm not going to eat anything this morning just to be extra sure," she says. "I feel anxious. I hope it goes well, no snafus. I'm excited but I'm definitely feeling the pressure."

Bridgette tells Oprah she needs 14 minutes of Oprah's commentary to complete the show. Oprah is surprised to hear she needs so much. "I didn't think that was a lot but maybe it is," she says. "I hadn't been worried about it up to that point, but at that moment I was."

Still, she has support in the control room. "I know that she's going to be worried about if she can operate at this level," Sheri says. "I'm rooting for Bridgette."
