T.D. Jakes is hosting his second town hall style election-themed episode discussing the aftermath of the Presidential election and our divided nation. Realizing the importance of continuing his conversations with all Americans to hear ALL of their voices, Jakes invites guests from all backgrounds to this groundbreaking episode. Wisdom and hope is what the country needs right now – and T.D. Jakes is the preeminent voice.

In this episode, Jakes looks deeper into what is troubling this country and why we need to move forward – including emotional discussions about 9/11 and his own family. It’s a time to come together – but how do we get there?

“Great leaders don’t pick sides! They unite and build bridges and connect us. And they focus on what we have in common rather than what we have to divide us. At the end of the day what we want…is for someone to unite us.”

Jakes leaves us with this powerful message:

“I have to believe that there is a way forward. For this is my home, is it yours?”

Hear all of this and more – please tune in Today, November 15th to catch yet another profound conversation with T.D. JAKES. Please check your local listings (http://www.tdjakes.com/show/be-on-the-show) or watch on OWN at 6:00pm EST / PST.

Sneak Peek: Kevin McCall Set To Appear On ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’

Kevin McCall has been last known for his recent social media feuds with his ex-music collaborator Chris Brown, not to mention some coparenting issues with ex Eva Marcille.

Now, the talented singer-lyricist-songwriter-producer heads over to Iyanla Vanzant‘s ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life‘ to dig deeper into more personal issues dealing with his father and more.

McCall has long struggled to express his anger constructively, having always been encouraged by his father to “win” physical fights. Now, in an emotional one-on-one session with Iyanla, Kevin opens up about what he wishes his father understood about him all those years ago.

“I wasn’t a wimp. I was just a good person.”

On the new episode of House of Healing: Fix a Black Man’s Heart, Part 1, Iyanla invites six men into a House of Healing to help fix the black man’s heart. Among the men seeking guidance are Boyz II Men‘s Michael McCary, Kevin McCall, and socialite Lira Galore‘s father Terrance. Preacher and motivational speaker Devon Franklin visits the house to help identify tools for healing. Part 1 of 3.

unnamed

In a three-part, multi-week episode of OWN’s award-winning series, spiritual life coach Iyanla returns to the “House of Healing” with six African American men struggling with broken spirits and broken hearts. The men—which include a man attempting to build a life for himself after numerous stints in jail to a former singer who struggles with feelings of abandonment to a father looking to mend a relationship with his famous socialite daughter—are struggling with their identities due to the effects of feeling criminalized, dehumanized and victimized by society.

Check out the clip above featuring Kevin McCall.

Be sure to tune in on Saturday, October 29 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) for the full episode on OWN.

“”I’ve always wanted to reach beyond just entertaining, with an overall goal of being reflective and introspective in everything I attempt.”

He also acknowledges his newfound “bae” status and says:

OWN’s ‘LIVIN’ LOZADA’ with Evelyn Lozada Premieres a New Season on May 7th

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

Oprah Winfrey Network’s popular docu-series Livin’ Lozada featuring reality star Evelyn Lozada returns with all-new episodes on Saturday, May 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT following the season finale of Holly Robinson Peete’s new docu-series For Peete’s Sake (9-10 p.m. ET/PT).

The premiere season of “Livin’ Lozada” brought younger viewers to the network and was the highest-rated freshman season ever for an OWN docu-series for women 18-49. The summer finale of “Livin Lozada” on August 29 ranked as one of the top two unscripted season finales in OWN history for women 25–54 (0.86 rating).

In this all-new season, Evelyn, her fiancé, L.A. Dodgers star Carl Crawford, and their toddler son, Leo, head back to their home in Arizona for the off-season. Tensions arise when Evelyn’s 22-year-old daughter, Shaniece, finds herself feeling alone in LA as she tries to launch her burgeoning modeling career, including a potential lucrative offer from Bow Wow. While mother and daughter work out some deep-seeded issues in their relationship through therapy, they’ll head to Houston to spend the holidays with Carl’s family, and venture back to their Bronx-roots in NYC, for an emotional sit-down with celebrity medium, John Edward. Finally, as the big 4-0 approaches for Evelyn, she begins to realize that her dream of conceiving another child with Carl may come with a series of seemingly insurmountable challenges.

Evelyn Lozada is moving on to bigger and better Reality TV in a more positive light!

It has just been announced that the Basketball Wives: Miami star has now landed her a reality series on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN Network.

Via Variety:

Evelyn Lozada’s series, which is titled “Evelyn” for now, follows the title reality star and her 21-year-old daughter Shaniece. Lozada recently welcomed a new child into the family with her baseball player fiance Carl Crawford, and the project will revolve around Lozada’s new found life, as a new mother again, while balancing the relationship with her daughter. Shed Media will produce with Pam Healey, John Hesling, Lisa Shannon, Russ Heldt and Lozada serving as exec producers, and Danika Berry as consulting producer. “Evelyn” is slated to premiere this July.

The series will follow Williams day-by-day, as he tries to put together his relationships with his family, children, and the mothers of his children, once again with spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant guiding him every step of the way. OWN and Evolution Media will produce.
