In the 2-part season premiere, Madame Vanzant heads to the ATL to visit former reality stars Neffeteria “Neffe” Pugh and Shelby “Soullow” Lowery, who are now living in a hotel. Not only are the in a hotel, but they are on the brink of divorce.
Obviously thing are not going well for Neffie and Sollow these days. Dude is broke and overwhelmed by financial obligations and on top of that, he’s recovering from a heart attack. However, Iyanla helps Shelby find the courage to confront Neffe about her alcohol abuse and combative ways in hopes of building a solid future for their family.
With a combustible situation like we’ve just described, you know the drama isn’t far behind and during one of their sessions, Iyanla comes for Neffe, calling her a “nasty, vile, guttersnipe right up out the hood.”
Here’s another one we can look forward to from the new season of Iyanla. Former Basketball Wives star Laura Govan needs healing.
Laura believes that her ex-fiancé (Gilbert Arenas) is targeting her on social media, and has even accused him of sleeping with her sister, Gloria. In the episode, we’ll see Iyanla works to help Laura strengthen her relationship with her parents and make sense of her life before it’s too late.
In another episode, Iyanla also visits the former front-man of R&B group 3T and nephew of the late pop superstar Michael Jackson, Taryll Jackson, to uncover the issues that lurk beneath the surface of his failing relationship with the mother of his children and girlfriend of 10 years.
Continuing to focus on relationships, Iyanla also invites four married “couples in crisis” to the “House of Healing” for explosive three-part episode.
The new season of Iyanla: Fix My Life returns to OWN Saturday, April 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
