When rapper Saigon and his baby mama Erica Jean appeared on the last season of “Love and Hip Hop,” audiences got to see exactly how volatile their relationship is. Things were aggravated when the former couple tried to discuss parenting their special needs child. Well, after seeing how unhealthy the relationship was, they enlisted the help of self help expert Iyanla Vanzant to help get them to a better place. However, according to Erica Jean, Iyanla only hurt the situation more than it already was.
Erica Jean gave an interview to The Jasmine Brand where they discussed the aftermath of Saigon and her appearance on the OWN reality series “Iyanla, Fix My Life.” Erica stated she felt Saigon manipulated Iyanla into turning all of the drama on her.
On her experience on “Iyanla, Fix My Life”:
I think the experience was the opposite of what I thought it would be. I was the one that kind of wanted help from Iyanla because of Saigon’s deal with the verbal abuse and the things I was enduring in our relationship.
On feeling attacked by Iyanla:
I understand that Iyanla was trying to help me in certain situations but a lot of things I think was inappropriate like bringing up plastic surgery, just things that didn’t have anything to do with me and Saigon’s relationship or me being a good mother.
On if the show was effective:
So, I don’t think the show was effective in that way. I think that it was a very one-sided show and I think that Saigon manipulated Iyanla for whatever reason to kind of put it on me but at the end of the day, I guess it is what it is.
