Earlier this month,m it was revealed that Basketball Wives star Brandi Maxiell and her husband Jason Maxiell, as well as well as Toya Wright’s ex-husband Memphitz will appear on the upcoming season of OWN‘s hit TV show, Iyanla: Fix My Life, but they aren’t the only ones.

With the release of the new super trailer, it has been revealed that former Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star, Hazel-E, will also appear on an episode of the show. It’s befitting as in October, Hazel pissed off both #BlackTwitter and #GayTwitter, essentially her entire fan base in a series of Instagram posts defending her boyfriend, Rose Burgundy, who made some very homophobic comments.

Hazel’s first offense was shaming her darker-skinned cast members, who she felt was simply hating on her for being light skinned:

What’s really interesting about her appearance is that shortly after the big blow up, site founder JaVonni Brustow stated that she needed to be on the new season of Fix My Life, and someone must have agreed:

On her appearance, Iyanla works with Hazel E to get to the root cause of the pain and anguish that caused her to lash out.

Trina Braxton, younger sister of Grammy-winning artist Toni Braxton, and her husband Gabe are are also featured on an episode, where they speak about their lives after marriage as Trina claims she wants help navigating her ex-husband’s relationship with her son, Gabe’s stepson, but as they begin their work, some very disturbing family pathologies begin to emerge.

Philando Castile’s fiancée Diamond Reynolds will seek Iyanla’s help begin to heal from the trauma she faced when Philando was murdered by police in front of her.
