Malorie Bailey's Daughter Defends Mom's Ex

Season 5 Episode 520
Aired on 09/29/2018 | CC tv-14
Although Malorie Bailey may feel victimized by the painful end of her 12-year marriage to basketball player Chris Massie, her daughter, Madison, believes there are two sides to every story. So, when Iyanla asks the 25-year-old to share her view of Chris and Malorie's relationship, Madison tries to be fair in her assessment.

"What I saw was a lot of miscommunication, a lot of disrespect," Madison says. "My mom can hit below the belt most times. ... I just want her to take responsibility for her role in everything and not just play the blame game."

Chris provided for the family, Madison continues, and shouldn't be discredited as a stepfather even if he wasn't the ideal husband. When asked whether her mother is selfish, Madison admits that she is when it comes to Chris, but not with anyone else.

To that, Iyanla only has one thing to say: "There's a principle in life called 'If you do it anywhere, you do it everywhere.'"
