What did you think about that? CHRISTIAN: I mean, I feel
like it’s not much in there that I don’t know. You know, the first– But how does it make you
feel to hear that come– let me ask you this. Let me ask both of you. Do you understand the depth
of violence involved in that? Mhm. She wrote me because
she wanted to be in better relationship with you. But what was I– what am I
supposed to think about you when this is what
she’s presenting to me as her experience of you? This a violent, passive
aggressive violence. But the thing is, what does
it do to your heart when, to receive it, but
more importantly, what’s in her heart? What’s in her heart that
would make her do this?

    The wife is beautiful, mom is probably just jealous of this beautiful, poised black queen. Let's be honest.

  • MrChicogotti Post author

    Was the man born a woman?

  • Monique Johnson Post author

    The husband seems like a punk who is afraid of his mom. Afraid to tell his own mom to back off his wife, and to stop mistreating her. And the wife is just sitting beside him with a smile on her face, looking at her husband, and expecting him to do something. Yet, he does nothing of meaning in his wife's defense to put an end to the nonsense. All the while, the wife is just accepting this mistreatment. Hell naw!

  • G Post author

    The culture the mother in-law comes from might explain (not excuse) her behavior towards the daughter in law.

  • Cherrelle TG Post author

    It's called hatred… Bigotry…

  • Netta2 Post author

    Million dollar question: What is in a persons heart to make them type out 5 pages of passive aggressive complaining? I guess we will all find out together…❤️🤣

  • Wicked Woo Post author

    If your husband doesn't handle it, you sure as hell better know how.

  • Peach Glow Reyah Post author

  • RAMOS SANDRA Post author

  • Fernande Francois Post author

    So, this mother in law wants Iyanla to fix her daughter in law. Plot twist M-in-l you're the problem.

  • Kenneth and Joyce Post author

    His mom is probably a racist old German lady, who is mad he married a beautiful black women, he needs to man up and stand up for his wife against his mom. He seems like a real mamas boy though

  • FoxChambers Post author

    Reminds me of that Friends episode where Rachel wrote Ross that five page letter and he's like "5 pages! Front AND back!"

  • Butterfly Post author

    My assessment is mom wrote this manifesto because she's prejudiced.

  • Butterfly Post author

    She can't accept that her son can love a black woman.

  • Patience Isavirtue Post author

    Miss Iyanla I need that jacket please and thanks you!!!

  • Cocoasupreme/Terra McTzi Fashezi Mynizi Post author

    it makes me think of a saying I heard recently about old racist white men…"they were raised by white women" can't recall who made the statement but made so much sense. The source of racism really come from…iyanla always says "a boy is who is mother makes him"

  • stJek Post author

    I'm not sure son is ready to set mommy straight 🤷🏾‍♀️ We'll soon find out, though

  • Raven Willis Post author

    I’m going through the exact same thing with my bfs mom only thing is I’ve never done a thing to her. At the end of the day that’s still his mother I just don’t wan’t her negativity around me. (My bf is white & I’m black)

  • Stacy Johnson Post author

    Could it be that we are missing the point. The mother may be on to something she just might know that this woman is not the one for her son. When you know your child you can feel when something is off coming from a black female parent.

  • Martha gogarty Post author

    Where can I access this show? It's so frustrating for me to just get snippets

  • Modest One Post author

    This women is beautiful inside and out the mom should be thankful that her son was able to catch her

  • Tiffania Carter Post author

    Mom is madddd because his wife is black! Okay! I don’t know what else to say!

  • Jackie Pearson Post author

    Cut the mother completely off.and never leave your kids with that old lady

  • Courtney Smith Post author

    FOR PPL THAT THINK IT'S ABOUT CLASS ONLY……white ppl do NOT believe black ppl can be in the same class as them & she is now in the same class as her son and she adores him so try another excuse and lets call a thing a thing

  • Nadine Romeo Post author

    The kids must be sooo cute! Mother in law needs to get over things …everyone needs to start fresh and love each other and forgive 🇨🇦❤️

  • brooklynforever1990 Post author

    This what some white women have been doing for generations. Inacting passive aggressive violence.

  • Ladi Dodi Post author

    Iyanla Vanzant is a very skilled therapist. I believe she would be able to break down more barriers with men if she took some time to focus some training in therapy for men. I dont feel she realizes how her approach pushes them away.
