Oprah is working on a line-up for OWN that’s sure to increase her ratings. With the return of the popular show Iyanla: Fix My Life, the two new series from Tyler Perry, The Haves and Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor, and the addition of two new reality shows; OWN may just have a breakout season this spring.
Iyanla: Fix My Life season two is set to premiere on Saturday, April 13th at 10pm and will feature rapper DMX. In a sneak peek that was just released for the upcoming premiere, it looks like Iyanla Vanzant has her work cut out for her.
DMX has been in and out of jail, on and off drugs and a little insane for quite some time now and Iyanla is on a mission to help him get his life together. With a lot of back and forth arguing and tension between the two, the episode is going to be MUST SEE TV.
Check out the sneak peek below:
Also in the second season, Iyanla will try to fix the lives of former reality star Sheree Whitfield, from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and her ex-husband Bob Whitfield. If you watch RHOA, you know about the turbulent relationship that Sheree has had with her ex-husband.
Sheree has been on a mission to get child support from her ex for a few years and the two of them just don’t get along. Iyanla will have her work cut out for her on this one as well, as she will try to get the two of them to a point where they are able to co-parent their children.
In other OWN news, Oprah has just signed on comedian Kym Whitley and La Toya Jackson for new reality shows on the network. La Toya Jackson’s show, Life with La Toya, will follow her as she tackles her love live and career among other things. Check out the press release for the new show below:
“Life With La Toya” takes viewers inside the outrageous world of La Toya Jackson—the wild card of one of showbiz’s most famous families—as she tackles love, career and maybe even parenthood, all on her own unpredictable terms. The new reality series gets up close and personal as La Toya hunts for a new house, builds new business ventures, contemplates starting a family and perhaps the biggest of all — jumps into the dating pool for the first time, ever. On board for her new adventures are La Toya’s devoted business partner Jeffré, her legendary mom and dad, a pair of meddlesome matchmakers, a magician, a lovelorn lifeguard and La Toya’s lifelong best gal-pal Kathy Hilton (yes, Paris’ mom). La Toya also opens up about her tumultuous past darkened by an abusive ex-husband, the death of her brother and family feuds.
This should be interesting… Life with La Toya premieres Saturday, April 13th at 10:30pm after the premiere of Iyanla: Fix My Life (w/DMX).
Kim Whitley’s new show is called Raising Whitley. Cameras will follow the comedian/actress as she becomes a mother for the first time and tries to juggle life as a full-time mom. Raising Whitley will premiere on Saturday, April 20th at 10pm.
