Iyanla Vanzant’s “Fix My Life” franchise is about to get even more real. Actress Maia Campbell is slated to appear on a special segment of the show called “Fix My Fallen Star” on November 17th. Campbell broke the news on Twitter and OWN confirmed it online. The segment will address Maia’s addiction and its impact on her life and those around her.

To call Maia a troubled star is a gross understatement. The daughter of late novelist, Bebe Moore Campbell, Maia made headlines three years ago for a viral video that showed her engaging in bizarre, unpredictable behavior. There were claims of prostitution and drug abuse.

The woman in the video was a far cry from the Maia Campbell the public remembered: a young Hollywood starlet with good looks and a promising career on the 90s popular sitcom, “In The House.”

Judging from the title of the show, it appears Maia is trying to put herself on a trajectory toward restoring her image in the public eye and getting her life in order. It should be a powerful episode.

Will you tune into see Maia Campbell on “Iyanla: Fix My Fallen Star” Clutchettes?

    . Being Bipolar didn’t make her into a crack head. I agree that her mental health issues need to be addressed and dealt with first, Iyanla may address it on the show. But there are some deeper issues that an intervention maybe able solve for her.

    Didn’t realize she was Bebe Moore Campbell’s daughter. Damn. Admired her mothers’s work. Easy to chastise her mom for not being upfront about her daughters mental illness, but I can see why she didn’t. Everything we do isn’t up for public consumption. This child needs help. Professional help. I really do admire Iyanla (easy to criticize her, but it’s always easier to fix other folks than your self). At least she puts the good and bad about her personal life out there for public consumption and criticism. However, this child needs a certified MD, possibly a PhD and some meds. I wish her well. With the RIGHT help, she has a shot at a better life.

    I’m glad she is doing better since getting off crack but the next celebrity Iyanla needs to help is Lark Voorhies who played Lisa Turtle on Saved by the Bell. She looks a mess!!!
