Iyanla Vanzant Sets a Minnesota Mom Straight on 'Fix My Life'

Nicole, a wife and mom from Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been married to her second husband for three years. Now she has reached out to relationship expert Iyanla Vanzant, asking Iyanla to come fix (and save!) her blended family.

"Why am I here?" Iyanla asks Nicole. She lets Nicole respond, then answers the question herself. "Let me tell you why I'm here," says Iyanla. "Because you're a hustler."

So what does that mean? Iyanla explains that Nicole is in rage. "You have a racket that you're running," she tells her. Iyanla believes Nicole wants to punish herself and everybody else around her.

Nicole seems stunned by the turn the conversation has taken -- so Iyanla lets her know what to expect. "I am here so you will finally grow up and stop acting like a brat," she says. "You're going to put your big girl panties on and be grown."

Can Iyanla succeed in helping this blended family? Tune in to the season finale of "Iyanla: Fix My Life" on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 10 p.m. ET on OWN.
