Season 5 Episode 510
Aired on 04/07/2018 | CC tv-14
After the first day of working with Jackie, a mother of four who has broken relationships with her eldest child and her older sister, LaTonya, Iyanla is alerted by a member of her production team that Jackie has decided not to return for a second day to continue the healing process. So, Iyanla calls Jackie to find out what's going on.

On the phone, Jackie rants and curses about her sister, set off by LaTonya's earlier comment that Jackie is only appearing on Iyanla: Fix My Life to find fame. "There's not a time since I've been living—44 years old—as long as I meet somebody, as soon as they talk to this bitch, LaTonya, their whole outlook on me changes!" Jackie says angrily. "She flipped the script. How the f*** I'm gonna come up here and be a star? ... I don't want to come back and do the show."

Iyanla struggles to get through to the distraught woman. Then, Jackie makes a stunning accusation. "I didn't tell y'all LaTonya raped me when I was a child. I didn't tell y'all that she was one of my rapists," Jackie says. "If I come back there tomorrow, every demon this bitch got, and I know it, will be aired."
