Campbell, a single mother, says her relationship with her 12-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, is great these days. She says Elizabeth wants to be an actress.

“She has a great personality. She’s getting good grades. She just did a Disney commercial recently and she had a great time. She was happy about that. She’s a doll. She’s an inspiration to me. She’s the reason that I got my health and life together and I’m a strong single mother right now, just doing the best I can in acting and life.”

  1. Hi Mia. I just watched the interview Iyanla “Fix My Life” and the entire interview I was in tears. Happy tears that is. I’m a single parent as well and seeing your life through its ups and downs really inspired me to keep moving. Holding my head high and knowing that prayer can change things. I wish you the best and encourage you to keep up the great work. You inspired me and I wish you and your daughter the absolute best!!!!!

  2. I am choked up after watching Maia on “Iyanla, Fix My Life.” I still have a lump in my throat! Maia, you will continue to be an inspiration to others. You have a strong, educated group of loving people around you! Hold tight to them. And your daughter, well, she was absolutely beautiful and amazing. I can’t even put into words how amazing that little girl is and I just saw her for a moment! She reminds me of my little girl. She touched my heart just as you did. I feel for you more than I could have imagined after watching just a portion of your life portrayed on this show. Thank you for sharing both the good and bad parts of your life. I know that you are grateful to have a stepfather who has stood by you through this. He has been a lifesaver also to you. You remind me of myself in so many ways, except my pain spiraled downward after my older daughter died. I can’t judge you because I know how rough the road can be. It is so easy to lose touch with the real world when your life falls apart and this little mental illness creeps into your life. You are showing us that we can go to the deepest, darkest holes, yet still be able to find ourselves, if we so choose. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! I hope you will only see good things in the future…hugs to you and your beautiful daughter.

  3. Great items from you, man. I have have in mind your stuff
    previous to and you are simply too excellent.
    I actually like what you’ve obtained right here, really
    like what you are stating and the way in which wherein you assert it.
    You make it entertaining and you continue to take
    care of to keep it sensible. I can’t wait to learn far more from you.

    This is actually a tremendous site.

  4. It was actually heart breaking to hear Maia’s voice in this interview. It is the same voice as my daughter who also suffers from bipolar disorder. But there is hope for Maia as long as stays on her medication. My prayers for Maia and her daughter.

  5. October 20th is fast approaching and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will be announcing plans for a United Black treasury on this day to buy farms, build factories and make jobs for Black Americans. Yet still no mention from a website that even takes the time to report tabloid gossip. I am starting to wonder if Tom Joyner is not allowed to report this major event in history. Could it be that he is bought and paid for like Tavis Smiley suggested?

  6. Mental illness is a bi**h, especially in the black community. We want to keep our heads buried in the sand and pretend it doesn’t exist, but its there. I am so happy for you Maia that you found the power and courage to seek and accept help. Many Blessings to you and your daughter.
