Viewers who were left with questions after LisaRaye McCoy’s explosive episode of OWN’s Iyanla: Fix My Life last season will now get more insight into the actress and entrepreneur’s life.
LisaRaye is scheduled to sit down with host Iyanla Vanzant on the season 8 premiere of the self help series. This time around, LisaRaye will address the “breakdown within herself,” OWN said Wednesday in a press release.
Last year, The Players Club star appeared on Fix My Life with her mother Katie McCoy and her daughter Kai to address family issues that had been simmering for years. The three women were all quarantining together in LisaRaye’s home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and tensions were high.

During the episode, LisaRaye and Katie went at each other over the actress being more of a “daddy’s girl,” who was closer to her father before he was killed in 1988.
“She knew her daddy was a damn hoe,” Katie said. “What do I do about it now, mom? Can I buy you?,” LisaRaye asked. Katie fired back, “You ain’t got enough damn money to buy me!”
In the conclusion of that episode, Vanzant felt the ladies needed to do more healing from their deep emotional wounds.
“How about a follow-up in six months,” LisaRaye said to the spiritual life coach. “Let’s see where you are,” Iyanla responded.

Vanzant is now making good on her promise to check in on the actress. Meanwhile, with the series ending, OWN CEO Oprah Winfrey praised the spiritual coach for having honest conversations with her guests in her tough-love manner.
“The minute Iyanla stepped onto the stage of The Oprah Show, I knew she had a talent that was meant to be shared and I am glad that she created the perfect vehicle to provide OWN viewers with her healing magic,” Winfrey said in a statement. “Sunsetting the series is bittersweet. I’m very thankful for her and the work she does and look forward to what unfolds next from her gift of teaching people to be better versions of themselves.”
LisaRaye’s intervention will kick off the show’s final season, which will have six new episodes. The series will also be airing a two-hour farewell special on May 22.
The eighth and final season of Iyanla: Fix My Life will premiere on Saturday, April 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
