POPULAR OWN SERIES “IYANLA: FIX MY LIFE”
RETURNS MAY 10 WITH ALL-NEW EPISODES
Season Premiere Features Rapper and Reality TV Star, Saigon (Saturday, May 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT)
Los Angeles – Bestselling author and acclaimed spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant returns to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network this May with the season premiere of the powerful self-help series “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” Saturday, May 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
In the new season of “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” Iyanla hits the road again to help individuals in crisis across the country fix what is broken and holding them back in their lives and relationships. Tensions are high from the start in the season premiere as Iyanla travels to New York to work with rapper/actor and reality TV star Saigon and his on-again-off-again lover and mother to his son, Erica. Many know the couple for their tumultuous relationship displayed on the reality series “Love & Hip Hop NY.” Iyanla’s challenge is to help the pair understand how years of fighting, resentment and a failure to forgive is preventing them from being the best parents for their son, Steven.
In later episodes, Iyanla stages a life or death intervention with a more than 600-pound California woman who says she hasn’t left her in bed in five years; assists a man who says his whole marriage has been a joke; works with a family who says their father is so mean they are afraid to be in the same room with him; and helps a nurse whose family refuses to forgive her after she was found guilty of taking patients’ pain medication.
