Iyanla Vanzant — author, speaker and host of OWN’s “Iyanla Fix My Life” — stopped by DC Lottery Live on Thursday to dispense her famous life advice. During her Q&A, Vanzant gave WPGC’s Adimu the low-down on an upcoming episode of the show’s new season that features Laura Govan.
Many know Laura Govan from her time on VH1’s “Basketball Wives LA.” Govan has four children with Gilbert Arenas, who played for the Washington Wizards from 2003 to 2010.
The 37-year-old reality TV star has had nothing but drama with Arenas, and the former couple have aired their dirty laundry all over social media.
Vanzant talked about the “double-edged sword” of reality TV, and what happens when a relationship like theirs doesn’t have a “solid foundation.” She said the episode shows how “children become the collateral damage of an ugly breakdown.”
“That’s what happens when a woman lives 15 years with a man, has four children by him and doesn’t require him to marry her,” Vanzant says.
The talk show host also told Adimu why she called Neffeteria “Neffe” Pugh a “vile guttersnipe straight up out the hood” on the two-part episode in season four featuring the former reality star.
