In This Week’s Episode:
Jackie has felt like the black sheep of her family ever since she gave birth to her daughter, Nikki, at the age of 16. When Jackie’s mother assumed the duties of raising her baby, Jackie rebelled and ran away to a life of drugs, prostitution and violent behavior. Meanwhile, Jackie’s older sister, Latonya, stayed behind to help raise Nikki and solidify a bond that Jackie has never been able to develop with her daughter. This bond has created deep resentment in Jackie’s attitude towards her own daughter and sister, often resulting in Jackie flying off the handle in fits of rage towards her family. Iyanla fights to keep this family together.
