Sneak Peek: Terrell Owens’ Emotional Sit Down With Iyanla Vanzant



OWN’s popular series, Iyanla: Fix My Life is back for a brand new season and kicking off the first episode is acclaimed and controversial NFL player, Terrell Owens.

In episode one, Iyanla travels to Owens’ hometown of Alexander City, Alabama, to meet with the star who completely opens up about his troubled past.

In a sneak peek of the forthcoming episode, Owens becomes very emotional during a heart-to-heart session with the spiritual life coach. “There were times when from the outside looking in, people thought I was at my happiest or at my best, I was sad. When I went home, I was sad,” the football veteran revealed. “I was lonely,” he explained.

During the emotional episode, Vanzant helps Owens to take the ncessary steps to repair what is broken in his life, career and relationships.

In September of 2011, the 39-year-old was sued by his daughter’s mother for failure to fork over child support. Nearly one year later, three of the four mothers to his kids appeared on the Dr. Phil show, accusing T.O of not paying child support at all, or coming up short.

In August of 2012, Terrell was released from the Seattle Seahawks. “I’m no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I’m truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver,” Owens wrote on Twitter after he was released.

Be sure to tune in for a all new episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life on Saturday, November 2, at 9/8c.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
