Oprah and Gayle visit the empire known as “Sweetie Pie’s,” St. Louis’ iconic and wildly popular soul food restaurant run by Miss Robbie and her dynamic family.

There wasn’t much detail on this story, just what is sweetly referred to as a “mention“. Still, having the empathetic and wise Iyanla Vanzant return to television seems the good and smart thing to do. From her rise in publishing, to another rise on Oprah and eventual break-up with Harpo Studios. Take a breath and continue. The failure with Barbara Walters and that ill-fated talk mess, losing her home, the rescue by Tavis Smiley with a solid return to the heights of publishing, the two-part reunion on the Oprah Show, and now on OWN we will all bear witness to Iyanla Fix My Life in primetime. Based on what’s gone before, her next chapter should usher in the phoenix’s rise and return.
