Aired on 09/08/2018 | CC tv-14
After the truth about Jason's numerous infidelities comes out and Iyanla comforts a devastated Brandi, the life coach turns her attention to Jason. As Iyanla explains to him, his cheating was never really about having sex.

"Every time you're with another woman, you abandon you. And every time you tell another lie, you abandon you. And every time you take a drink to stuff the pain down, you abandon you," she tells him. "This wasn't about sex. This was about punishment."

Iyanla then encourages Jason to ask Brandi to forgive him for dishonoring himself as well as her.
