Iyanla Vanzant continues to heal the broken on the latest episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, where she attempts to help former Love & Hip Hop cast member and aspiring rapper, Hazel E.
The reality show star sat down with the veteran life coach to discuss several aspects of her life that could have led her to where she is today, including her decision to make disparaging comments about brown and darker skinned women.
Vanzant soon discovered Hazel was sexually abused as a child by more than one “dark skinned” woman, which has likely led to her negative perception of brown girls since.
Check out the preview below.
This episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life airs Saturday, April 14, at 9pm ET/PT on OWN.
