First Look at "A Family's Curse: Abuse, Lies & Blackmail"

Season 5 Episode 517
CC | tv-14
Iyanla works with Aleesha Barlow, a young woman who was sexually abused by her maternal grandfather for years, starting at the age of 6. When Aleesha first told her aunt and mother, Judy, about the abuse all that time ago, both women covered it up. Judy asked Aleesha to keep the painful secret from everyone—even Aleesha's father—unknowingly leading the family down a dark path that would be shaped by lies, threats and blackmail.
