Iyanla Vanzant has interviewed dozens of celebrities who have had personal woes play out publicly. But the Fix My Life host’s recent interview with Karrueche Tran about her troubled relationship with Chris Brown, seemed to garner a large amount of attention.
“Karrueche was a demonstration of so many young women, just like me, who make mistakes in relationships,” Vanzant told HipHollywood while at the premiere of BEING. “I really just wanted to talk to her about some of the pit falls because nobody has done that publicly. We look back and we say ‘this happened’ and ‘that happened,’ but nobody has asked, ‘what did you do? What did you do, how did you participate that this is the story you’re telling today?'”
And although Vanzant’s motive was to help the fashion designer, Tran revealed last week while on Big Boy’s morning show that she actually felt uncomfortable during the taping. “I think she’s great at what she does, she’s very inspirational and motivational, but I think her approach is a little different than how other people interview … Honestly it was a little uncomfortable the way the interview was going and there was a little bit of a break during the interview.”
Tran and Brown broke up back in March after news surfaced that he fathered a 9-month-old baby girl.
