Plot Synopsis

Author, inspirational speaker, and talk show host Iyanla Vanzant uses her past to help fix the lives of others. When she's helping members of the studio audience deal with rejection, relationships or self image, Iyanla relies on her own past personal struggles to help others reveal the truth of what's broken, understand their own emotions and develop a plan so they can overcome their issues and become stronger people. OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network aired a sneak-peek episode of this series on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at 10pm ET, with the official series premiere airing on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 10pm ET. Seven months later, OWN presented the Season 2 premiere of this series on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 9pm ET, with a 90-minute debut episode that featured DMX getting help from Iyanla to fix his rap-star life. IYANLA, FIX MY LIFE returned for its third season on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on OWN. In the season opener, Iyanla traveled 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. Later in the season, Iyanla stages a life or death intervention with a more than 600-pound California woman who says she hasn't left her 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. IYANLA, FIX MY LIFE returned with new episodes on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. In the fall premiere, "Fix My Father with 34 Children (Part 1)," the first part of a three-part story, Iyanla meets Jay Williams, a video producer who has fathered 34 biological children with 17 different women, while she digs into the real issues behind his behavior. On Saturday, September 19, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network premiered a new season of IYANLA, FIX MY LIFE. In eight new episodes, Iyanla helps those who are struggling, guiding them toward a new way of living and encouraging them to do the work necessary for real change. The season opens with a three-part story, featuring two pastors in crisis. Their true lives as gay men have been hidden from their families and congregations by years of lies and secrets...and now it is time for both to share their truth. Iyanla meets pastor Derek who is afraid how those closest to him will react when he comes out. Iyanla also meets pastor Mitchell who told his wife that he needed to embrace his identity, but who never told her about his multiple affairs. IYANLA, FIX MY LIFE returned for a new season on Saturday, September 10, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. In the eight-episode new season, Iyanla helps those who are struggling, guiding them toward a new way of living and encouraging them to do the work necessary for real change. In the season opener, "House of Healing: The Myth of The Angry Black Woman (Part 1 of 4)," Iyanla invites eight women to move into a House of Healing. These women have all been labeled as "Angry Black Women," and it's Iyanla's intention to prove that this stereotype is inaccurate, untrue and dangerous. The final three parts debut on subsequent Saturdays at 9pm in September and the beginning of October. On Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network premiered a new season of IYANLA, FIX MY LIFE. In the two-part season premiere, Iyanla travels to Atlanta to visit former reality stars Neffeteria 'Neffe' Pugh and Shelby 'Soullow' Lowery, who are now living in a hotel on the brink of divorce. Overwhelmed by financial obligations, his troubled marriage and recovering from a heart attack, 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. 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. Having dealt with infidelity, communication breakdown and on the brink of a break up, Iyanla works to help guide each couple as they struggle to heal their broken hearts and regain peace from their broken pieces. Later in the season, former BASKETBALL WIVES star Laura Govan comes to Iyanla for healing. Laura believes that her ex-fiance is targeting her on social media, and has even accused him of sleeping with her sister, Gloria. Iyanla works to help Laura strengthen her relationship with her parents and make sense of her life before it's too late. In an emotional season finale, Iyanla brings together six survivors of the Pulse nightclub tragedy, the deadliest mass shooting in American history. Each have been suffering in distinctly different ways since surviving the shooting. With no "fix," Iyanla will explore this painful memory so that each person can hopefully heal and begin to move forward, so that we can all learn from this tragedy.
