*Talk about flipping the script.

Iyanla Vanzant did just that while providing a glimpse into the mind of a single mother abandoned by the father of her children during a recent episode of her show “Iyanla, Fix My Life.”

A clip from the show features Nathaniel, a father of 28 children from 16 different women; and Jay Williams, a father of 34. When asked what it feels like to wake up knowing he has this much responsibility on his plate, Nathaniel admitted to feeling “helpless” when he thinks of his children.

“I’m full of shame and guilt. I’m bitter,” he told Vanzant, who turned the tables to put Nathaniel in the shoes of a single mom.
