Iyanla Rejects Rita's Excuses: "When A Child Calls, You Drop Everything"

Season 6 Episode 608
In this digital exclusive, Iyanla supports a deeply wounded William during a confrontation with his mother, Rita, who abandoned him as child. William still doesn't trust Rita: "I don't feel like she's genuine," he says. Here, as Rita tries to offer an explanation for not being there for Michael, Iyana explains that although Rita birthed Michael, she doesn't "know how to be a mother."
