Iyanla Vanzant, who hosts the award-winning Oprah Winfrey Network self-help series Iyanla: Fix My Life tells the site’s Entertainment Editor Chris Witherspoon that Brown has been rewarded for bad behavior throughout the course of his career.

When asked if serving jail time will help the “Forever” singer rehabilitate his career and life, Vanzant said, “Absolutely.”

“It’s an opportunity to be still,I call jail ‘God’s vacation retreat center.’ You get the opportunity to retreat to the center of your soul and get clear with your creator,” said Vanzant. “Many young men have gone to prison and come out clear, focused, and disciplined. They went in and they realized they weren’t being punished, they were being held accountable.”

Iyanla Vanzant: Fix My Life premieres its new season on Saturday, May 10 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on OWN.

    That is absolutely ridiculous for her to say something this what I would call “slave mentality” psycho babble BS. Do you really think that for all the men who have been in trouble for spousal abuse and the troubles he’s had went to jail for what does she call it “God spare” time or whatever crazy crap? No he needs soul cleansing but jail is where most black men are and where has that gotten us. She sounds like the sheep herder of black men into the same institutions where the majority are in for time that is not deserving of the crime. Innocent men in there because they didn’t have the greenbacks to get them out of jail. And she is the Fix my life lady? She may as well be Samuel Jackson in Django. Just sell your young african american up the river because to make a aa man get right, show him his place in society. Oprah never ever should let her back on her show or near OWN, If anything she hasn’t owned up to her being a backstabber to Oprah and if this is part of her redemption send her away, she taints Oprah. Chris and I am NOT a fan for what he is done, but when you say he needs prison time, you are talking about a whole lot of young black Chris Brown’s who don’t have the dime and doing time. She needs to go back into hiding. Sickening really!!!!
