Kenyatta’s treated me so
bad, so bad, so disrespectful, for no reason. How about ’cause you’re mean? How about that? – I don’t agree with you.
– Well, you don’t have to. Right. You the one that
ain’t got relationships. This is true.
IYANLA: OK? But I’m not mean. Well, what if
people experience you as mean, Miss Eve? What if? Breathe. How does it feel to
live in the house with somebody that convicts
you because of who you are? How does that feel? Don’t feel good. How does it feel to live with
somebody that thinks you’re a sinner who’s going to hell? It don’t feel good. How does she let you
know that’s how she thinks? She’s always, I’m the devil. Just telling [INAUDIBLE],,
“I rebuke you in the name of Jesus.” She nothing but [INAUDIBLE] In your house? In your house, she whip
her rebuke out on you? EVE: That– it happened once. It should never happen. It should never happen. The Bible says I can do it. Not in her house. You do that stuff on the
corner with your tracts? – Why would I do that?
– Why not? Why would I do
that on a corner? Why not? The rebuke only
comes when I’m being disrespected, when I’m being
yelled at and screamed at. Miss Eve, are you aware that
when you fell down on your job as a mother, it became her job? Are you aware of that? EVE: I don’t deny that I was
a crackhead and an alcoholic– IYANLA: You do deny it. –for many years. I– I’m not, OK? I’m taking that back. Will you let–
forgive me for that? Will you forgive me that slight?
– It’s nothing. It’s nothing to forgive. EVE: ‘Cause I haven’t– I don’t have no, I
just admitted it, OK? Yeah, I was a crackhead. And I’m still a crackhead. And I’m still an alcoholic. Only by this day, 20 years
removed, that I’m not. It’s been 20 years.
– So let me ask you a question. You don’t want a relationship
with the alcohol and the drugs. Do you want a relationship
with your daughter? Absolutely. And what keeps
you from having it? I don’t know,
other than the fact that she just don’t want to. She just don’t want to. Did you make– did she tell
you she don’t want to have a relationship with you? EVE: When somebody
don’t talk to you– Listen.
Here is the question. Did she tell you
that she doesn’t want a relationship with you? Yeah. In her actions. See, you making that up. That’s the voice of reason that
took you out your [INAUDIBLE].. – No, I’m just saying.
– No, no, no, no. I mean, she’s– she
treating me so bad, how the heck can I not think that? What if, as a wise woman,
your job was to be in that home and nurture these two youngins? They youngins to you. You the elder. And that you are so out of
order, worrying about what they need to be doing
to you and for you, that you have totally
fell out your lane?
