Iyanla Vanzant has her hands full with the newest guest on her popular OWN show, “Iyanla: Fix My Life”: rapper DMX (née Earl Simmons). The artist lashes out at Vanzant in the season two premiere of the series, airing Saturday, April 13 at 9PM EST.
The life coach heads to Yonkers, New York to help DMX work through his issues before things quickly spiral out of control. Emotions run high through the episode and Vanzant and the rapper, who appeared on “Couples Therapy” with ex Tasherra Simmons, end up yelling at each other. DMX screams “Shut the f*** up” while Iyanla stands up and says passionately “You don’t get to speak to me ever again.”
The passion and anger on display will certainly draw ratings, but will the interaction actually help DMX? That remains to be seen.
