On last night’s episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, the actress, who is the daughter of the late author Bebe Moore Campbell, reached out for help. Vanzant visited Campbell at a rehab facility where she has been living while trying to recover. While there, the host forced her to confront her demons and dig deep for the source of her problems.
“I shop a lot,” said Campbell as she and Vanzant toured her messy room. “That’s one of my coping skills, to shop. I want to feel pretty enough. I want to feel good enough. I want to be whole again. I want to look good on the outside because I feel ruined on the inside.”
Iyanla quickly responded, “Let’s be clear about this. Looking good on the outside is not going to change your inside.”
Watch the clip above and tell us what you think of Campbell’s progress and confessions.
