If you’ve ever watched a single episode of OWN’s “Iyanla Fix My Life,” you’ve likely asked yourself ‘What ever happened to so and so?” With so much trauma and drama, you have to wonder if Iyanla’s teachings and tactics proved effective in their lives once they’ve left her care. In the upcoming season of “Iyanla Fix My Life,” we’re going to get some answers to that question, with some of the show’s most memorable guests.

The family that was etched in my mind was the Mitchell family. The Mitchell men had all been placed in foster care by their parents, who were drug addicts. According to OWN, when Iyanla catches up with them, she finds that “Michael, Jr. has gone back to making lewd videos, Markis’s guilt about failing his family has led to a suicide attempt and one sibling went MIA.  In part two of this multi-episode story, Iyanla sits down with the oldest sibling, Kizzy, to help her understand that she is no different from the mother who abandoned her; meanwhile, Iyanla sits Michael, Jr. down with  mother Leronda to gain a greater understanding of an untreated mental health issue – one causes emotional outbursts and spurs him to post degrading videos of himself on social media; and lastly, Iyanla addresses the violent breakdown during the previous episode between Marvin and Melvin around one brother’s discomfort with his own sexuality. In a final attempt to move beyond the burden of resentment they hold towards their mother and each other, Iyanla jumps in between the chaos of family squabbles, breakdowns and blowups by making each member face their core issues of deeply rooted mistrust.”

You can check out the trailer for this new season in the video below.

In addition to these recaps, Iyanla Vanzant is also launching a podcast, available on June 18 on Apple Podcasts, which will air moments from previous episodes, including one with Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ocho Cinco Johnson. You may recall that the two were married for two months before they divorced after Johnson physically assaulted Lozada by headbutting her after she confronted Johnson for cheating on her.
