Twenty-eight-year-old Nikki was raised by her grandmother, who had kicked Nikki's teenage mother, Jackie, out of the house for bad behavior soon after Nikki was born. Although Jackie has told Iyanla that she desperately wanted to raise her child, Nikki heard differently from others in her family who told her that Jackie was only interested in partying.

"Inappropriate," Iyanla says. "It's inappropriate for somebody to tell a child their mother's story. Your mother gets to tell you her story. Right, wrong or indifferent. It's her story, and nobody has a right to tell you your mother's story except your mother."

Nikki appears to disagree. "Okay, Miss Iyanla. Whatever."
