Aired on 11/07/2015 | CC tv-14
When Iyanla sits down with former Olympic ice skater Debi Thomas, she offers her two choices: stay in an unhealthy relationship because she thinks she can fix it, or walk away and save herself as a woman and mother.

Ultimately, Debi decides to stay in her relationship, believing that once her fiancé, Jamie, is "fixed," things will be better. "I want to be healthy, I want to be there for my son," Debi says. "I just don’t know how I'm going to do that... [but] I'm not ready to jump ship."

The problem is that Iyanla says she doesn't really know Jamie. Watch the above video to find out why.
