*An all-new season of OWN’s award-winning series “Iyanla: Fix My Life” will return with an emotional four-part, multi-week episode when spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant invites eight women to move into a “House of Healing” to dispel the myth of the “Angry Black Woman” and address the misconceptions associated with African-American women, their behavior and ultimately their cultural identity.
In the four-part season premiere, Iyanla aims to prove that the “Angry Black Woman” stereotype is inaccurate, untrue and dangerous. Later in the season, Iyanla travels to Atlanta to visit the Henry family as they deal with a father who is often not present, leaving the family for days at a time. While he is gone, his wife is aware her husband is likely #turningup with drugs and sex.
Iyanla also works with Powerball winner Marie Holmes. After winning 188 million dollars, life for the mother of four has been in shambles. Adding to the pressure is her criminal-minded fiancé, Lamar. After multiple arrests, Marie has spent more than 20 million dollars to bail Lamar out of jail. With his 10-year sentence just 48 hours away, Iyanla visits Marie’s palatial estate to help her cope with her new fortune before she loses it all.

Additionally, the life coach returns to the “House of Healing” in future episodes 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.
In three groundbreaking episodes, Iyanla will explore each man’s story and help them define themselves in ways that honor their strengths, culture and relationship to society.
