Aired on 08/22/2015 | CC tv-14
In all her years as a life coach, Iyanla Vanzant has seen many people shed a tear or two. Even Evelyn has been known to cry in Iyanla's presence. "Iyanla is my life coach, and I love when I get the chance to catch up with her," she says. "It's therapeutic to get her advice, but I always become a blubbering idiot."

These days, Evelyn cries mostly happy tears...and she better not try to fool Iyanla because this spiritual coach says she knows the difference. "I tell people, 'I'm a tearologist.' Happy tears always come on the inside," Iyanla says. "Sad tears come down the middle and all over, because sad tears usually well up and then they spill forward. ... I watch tears as a coach. Your mouth may be telling me one thing, but your tears are telling me something else."

What do Evelyn's tears say about her? Watch now and find out!
