Vanzant’s family intervention has proven to be a breakthrough for the group. Since the show, Vanzant says the sisters have bonded together to help each other lose the weight.
“Once we looked at the issues, there’s no reason anymore to stuff those issues and stuff those fears.”
As for rapper DMX, who was unhappy with his portrayal on a recent “Iyanla, Fix My Life,” broadcast, Vanzant says that his threatened lawsuit has not yet materialized. But the show may have created a breakthrough, not for DMX, but for his oldest son, Xavier, who appeared on the show with him.
“Very often, we go in thinkkng we’re working with one person and we get the breakthrough for somebody else. That’s not the first time that has happened. So really it was about his son. With all of the guests, it’s their choice and I think once they get in and realize this is not just reality TV and you’re getting some publicity and exposure, when they’re sititng face to face with me, they say ‘Oh wait a minute. Hold on.’” (Laughs).
