Iyanla Vanzant was both praised and criticized recently for heading to Ferguson, Missouri to do a show in the middle of the Michael Brown protests. Some said that she should be honored for seeking to help the situation by using her celebrity status to bring attention to a cause. Others said that she was seeking to exploit the situation in order to obtain ratings.
But ratings are the name of the game for the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) and Iyanla’s show has been one of the leaders when it comes to building buzz.
Her latest episode of “Fix My Life” involves a man who really needs some serious fixing. He has apparently spent most of his life obsessed with sleeping with as many women as possible and has found himself to be the father of 34 children with a whopping 17 women. This means that he’s had a whole lot of sex and much of that sex has been unprotected. Does this kind of thinking pose a danger to the black community?
With so many STDs being spread these days, it might be advisable to think twice about going into the bedroom with the man who has all the ladies at his beck and call.
Iyanla’s show seeks to get to the heart of the man’s behavior. Some may say that this man has some serious psychological problems, but others may say that he’s just being trifling and irresponsible. Also, what do you say to the woman who chose to sleep with a man who already has over 30 kids? Should they be blamed as well?
I told you I was going to blow your world up,” Iyanla says in the teaser for the show. It sounds like this man may have already blown up the worlds of his kids. Can you really take care of that many kids in that many households and do a good job? It sounds to us like he’s spending all of his free time making more babies.
