Before Neffeteria "Neffe" Pugh made a life with her husband, Shelby "Soullow" Lowery, the reality star was married to a man with whom she had a son. However, her family life crumbled when that son died at age 3 months.

Neffeteria opens up about the devastating loss to Iyanla, which she acknowledges is something she still hasn't dealt with. "We was due to get up for church, and he was gone. I picked him up," Neffeteria says, pausing. "He was stiff."

Remembering that day, Neffeteria is overwhelmed by grief. "I don't wish that on nobody," she says, crying. "All I could do was sit in the corner and just hold my baby, and I was rocking and shaking. I ain't never felt nothing like that in my life."
