If you need a clean-up woman for your life, Iyanla Vanzant is your girl. The author/motivational speaker/TV host has been helping people figure out their life problems for years. The one-time lawyer knows of what she speaks. She’s been a battered wife, been divorced twice, lost her home and most of her money, her son has been imprisoned, and her beloved daughter, Gemmia, died of a rare form of cancer.
Yet Vanzant has turned pain into progress, reconciling publicly with Oprah Winfrey after a falling out between the two and triumphantly emerging as the host of her own OWN show “Iyanla, Fix My Life.” The second season debuts on OWN on Saturday, April 13 at 9 p.m.
