Oprah on top of the bridge

3 of 10
As Lindsay waits for the rest of the group to reach the top, she receives a troubling phone call. "The chopper ran out of fuel," she says.

It will take at least 15 minutes for the chopper to refuel. Oprah is not happy. "That is unbelievable," Oprah says. "We get to the very top to the summit and he has run out of gas, and there is nobody there to take the picture of the summit shot. I could not speak."

Fifteen minutes pass, and the chopper isn't back due to a fuel problem at the airport. "I get a phone call 10 minutes later, so I have to go back to Oprah Winfrey and say it's going to be another 15 minutes," Lindsay says.

Oprah is getting frustrated. "This is the thing I don't like. We were told 12 minutes 12 minutes ago," she says. "If you give me an accurate estimate then we can all adjust ourselves, but do not tell us a time that is not accurate."

Lindsay fears Oprah will want to leave the bridge before they get the shot. "The shot is the reason why we're all up here. If she doesn't stick it out, I don't know what we're going to do," Lindsay says. "I have never felt so bad on a shoot than on this shoot right now. It's out of my control."
