Iyanla Vanzant is out here saving lives and serving souls. On the next episode of her OWN television series, Fix My Life, the author/spiritual teacher sits down with child star, Maia Campbell, who you may remember from the 90s sitcom, In The House or the film, Poetic Justice.
After her late mother, Bebe Moore Campbell, was diagnosed with brain cancer, Maia became addicted to crystal meth and went on a downward spiral. A video surfaced online in 2009 of Maia strung out on drugs and yelling out of a car in the hood.
Now in a healthier state, she talks to Iyanla about the death of her mother, saying she was prevented from seeing her in the hospital as her family thought she would cause problems.
“Maia, you were high,” Iyanla tells her. “Until you can say to me, ‘I did drugs. I ran the streets. I threw my dreams away,’ it will always be about them and you will always be powerless. You gotta own your stuff.”
