OWN’s popular self-help series “Iyanla: Fix My Life” returns on Saturday, November 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT with all-new episodes, the first featuring NFL superstar Terrell Owens.
In an emotional episode, spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant travels to Alexander City, Alabama, the hometown of acclaimed and controversial American football wide receiver Terrell Owens, who despite incredible talent and enormous success as a professional athlete finds himself in personal crisis which threatens his future.
The goal of Iyanla’s visit is to help Terrell confront issues from his past that continue to negatively affect him in the present, as well as to encourage him to take the necessary first steps to repairing what is broken in his life, career and relationships.
Through a series of emotional heart-to-heart sessions, Iyanla uncovers the pain from Terrell’s childhood—rarely seeing his mother and not knowing the identity of his father—and soon realizes that some of Terrell’s bad behavior on and off the field likely stems from his feelings of abandonment as a child. It is immediately apparent that the relationship with his mother and father must be healed before he can move forward, including fixing the relationship with his own children.
As Terrell’s healing process continues, Iyanla encourages him to take ownership for his wrongdoings. Only after admitting his faults and strengthening the relationship with his mother and father is Terrell finally ready to break the negative cycle that has been holding him back.
New episodes of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” will continue to air weekly on Saturdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on OWN. The series is produced by Harpo Productions, Inc.
