After years of battling her addiction to crystal meth, former child star Maia Campbell is learning it only takes two words to start mending the rifts in her family: "I'm sorry."

On the November 17 episode of "Iyanla: Fix My Life," relationship expert Iyanla Vanzant supports Maia -- best known as Tiffany on the '90s sitcom "In the House" -- in apologizing to her stepfather, Ellis Gordon. "Forgive me for taking the family through so much," Maia says. "I know it hasn't been easy. It's been a rough road trying to take care of me. "

Ellis is moved to tears. "Thank you for being there and thank you for making it easier," Maia says. "I knew that I didn't belong to those places because I had someone like you to pull me up and pull me out."
