Iyanla Vanzant loses patience with troubled gospel singer Le’Andria Johnson in a preview for Iyanla: Fix My Life.
The host and life coach sat down with Johnson for a two-part episode of the OWN series titled “The Bad Girl of Gospel.”
Things get uncomfortable as soon as the 30 second clip starts, with Vanzant asking Johnson: “Are you an alcoholic?” to which the singer replies “no.”
Vanzant isn’t buying the singer and pastor’s excuses and fires back, “So why do you have that on your angle?” referring to the ankle monitoring device on the gospel star’s leg.
Later in the video, Johnson says, “I’m not going to stop drinking. I’m functioning.”
Vanzant responds, “Spoken like a true alcoholic,” prompting the singer to roll her eyes.
Johnson is then shown outside, apparently walking away from the intervention and says, “I just want to go.”
The clip cuts to Vanzant, who yells from a distance: “Be not on your own understanding!”
A despondent Johnson says through tears, “I don’t know what to understand.”
Vanzant then walks up to the singer and says, “You’re trying to figure it out with the very stuff you’re rebelling against. Stay or go!” The life coach turns to walk away and the video ends.
Johnson has previously admitted having a drinking problem and said she was pulled over by a police officer after leaving a bar. In a live Instagram video posted last month, she told her followers she was on her way to rehab.
The singer’s interview with Vanzant was recorded before she entered a treatment facility. The episodes will air on OWN, on Saturday, March 16 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) and Saturday, March 23 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT).
