How she lost her marraige, her house, her fortune: Iyanla Vanzant, Part 2
In the late '90s, no-nonsense relationship expert Iyanla Vanzant dished out tough love to Oprah Show guests every other Tuesday. But, after more than a year of regular appearances, Oprah and Iyanla's relationship came to an abrupt end.
Eleven years ago, Iyanla told Oprah and Harpo executives she was ready to host her own talk show, but Oprah felt she needed more time to grow. After that fateful meeting, Iyanla and Harpo parted ways, and Iyanla signed on to host The Iyanla Show, which was canceled after just one season.
In part 2 of the interview (Part 1
was on last Monday, 6 June), Iyanla opens up about losing everything and finding peace in the process.
