Iyanla Vanzant is the life coach that many of us look to for advice and guidance.
Her show, “Iyanla: Fix My Life” remains one of the biggest hits on Oprah’s network, OWN.
Last season she started out with a bang, when she helped shape the life of “Basketball Wives” Miami star Evelyn Lozada, both before and after her tumultuous marriage to NFL Star Chad Ochocinco.
Season 2 begins (tonight) Saturday and this time, she is tackling one of the wildest rappers in Hip Hop, DMX. (Scroll down for more on that.)
EURweb associate, Cherise (CNikky) Nicole caught up with Iyanla during the Essence Black Women In Hollywood. She spoke to us about her mentor Oprah Winfrey, her She-roes, bad relationships and her insecurities.
While many of us are identifying and learning to overcome our insecurities during our 20s, 30s and 40s, Iyanla says that at 60 years old, her insecurities have become her new normal.
“You know when I was 20 and 30 they were insecurities. Now they’re just a new normal. I’m 60 years old, so my expectations of who I am and how I look and how I show up in the world had to shift. Not because I couldn’t help it, or not because I did anything wrong, but because I had to get into the natural flow of my being as a woman. So, I no longer have insecurities. I have new normals. You know, the new normal that I can’t read the writing on the cereal box. The new normal that I’ve gone from a thong to a spanx! It’s wonderful! It’s a new normal! Who am I to be insecure about these things? I know they didn’t make spanx just for me so there’s some other women out there that have the same normal as me.”
Love Her! Tune in to the explosive Season 2 Premiere of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” tonight, Saturday at 9pm on OWN!
