Earlier this month we reported that Oprah Winfrey’s network OWN had ordered additional episodes of Iyanla Fix My Life featuring life coach Iyanla Vanzant. Well, now a few details have surfaced about some of the new summer episodes including one starring R&B Diva Syleena Johnson.
According to Indie Wire, Iyanla: Fix My Life will attempt to help mend the volatile relationship between the R&B singer and reality starlet and her mother. Vanzant will also address the issues of a couple on the verge of financial ruin, what to do with free loading family members, and the truth behind a mother behaving badly.
Also scheduled to return this summer are new episodes of two OWN original series. First up is Welcome to Sweetie Pies, where Miss Robbie and her son Tim, debate the potential shutdown of their original Sweetie Pies soul food restaurant location. Tim also faces the possibilities of being a single father. Oprah: Where Are They Now will feature new episodes with updates on Oprah’s sister, Fab Morvan from 90’s music group Milli Vanilli, A Different Strokes actor Todd Bridges and some of our favorite American Idol Contestants.
It all begins on July 7th with new episodes of Oprah’s Life class and the 90-minute episode featuring Iyanla Vanzant and Winfrey addressing the reaction to their hugely popular ‘Fatherless Sons’ episode. The conversation will also continues on July 14 and 21, when the two ladies address ‘Daddyless Daughters’ as a two-part special.
RC will keep you posted as more information about these new OWN programs becomes available.
