On the season 6 premiere of “Fix My Life,” Iyanla Vanzant works with Kamiyah Mobley: a 19-year-old who was kidnapped at birth and raised by her kidnapper. Today, with her abductor in jail, Kamiyah is left without a true identity or a mother to call her own.

During filming, Kamiyah goes off on Iyanla, to the point where Iyanla stops filming. Afterwards, Kamiyah’s biological father explained his side of what happened during filming via Facebook Live.

Here is the recap for, “Kidnapped at Birth.”

Prev1 of 2


  1. Her father is an enabler. He wasn’t even willing to restrain her and calm her down. Then he gets on Facebook and tries to justify her actions.

  2. Iyanla’s son has every right to defend his mother. Especially when this young lady’s father acted like he was scared of her and did nothing to diffuse the situation. This was disturbing to watch.

  3. I’m not sure how anyone can justify their child threatening to stab an elder. I don’t always like Iyanla’s methods, but Kamiyah was out of line. She needs help but her anger was just way too much for me. I think she had anger issues well before she found out she was kidnapped.

  4. Her a-s needs therapy but I doubt anyone in her life is going to make sure she gets it. They ain’t nothing but enablers.

  5. I’m trying to be positive on this beautiful Sunday but this episode pissed me off. if Iyanla was my mom I would have knocked that little girl out. She was MAD disrespectful! She is going to run up on the wrong person one day!

  6. Anyone else notice how the step mom’s body language was off from start? She had her arms folded and was rolling her eyes while Iynala talked most of the time. I knew then that this wasn’t going to work out.

  7. Ratchet. The whole episode. I get what Iyanla was trying to do but yeah it’s a no for me dawg. She basically kidnapped a kidnapping victim. Wrong approach. But I definitely think Kamiyah was way out of line. I don’t know how Iyanla kept her cool because I would not have.

  8. So they called Iyanla asking to be on the show and then got mad at how she went about doing everything? Have they not seen the show? LOL.

  9. This girl behaved like a classless hood booger. I get that she is angry but she was angry with the wrong person. Iyanka handled it well. The dad was an enabler.

  10. This young lady is lost, hurt, confused and wounded. She doesn’t know what to do or how to behave. She is completely numb. Iyanla did a great job however, she truly needs deeper counseling. Its almost like she is suffering from PTSD. Losing the only mom she ever knew to prison and now also having her own biological mom abandon her is probably more than she can handle. I believe the whole family needs counseling.

  11. Everyone jumps right past Ilayna’s professional obligation to her son protecting her. She tried to get the girl close to her, giving her options and immediately made contrary decisions for her! Ilyana was out of her lane to cut the only lifelines this young woman had in place.

    Ilyana has been exposed for the hack she is! If I were her Dad she would be hearing from a gang of lawyers. For sure she ain’t no Dr Phil!

  12. I didn’t watch the episode and, ironically, I’m reading this on the day I finally allowed myself to post an Iyanla quote on my Instagram, lol. I don’t dislike her personally and I’ll stop short of calling her a fraud, but I’m not into her whole wise guru bit at all. From reading this post, it is clear she wasn’t qualified to handle a young woman in such a fragile and emotional state. In fact, it sounds like she mostly mishandled her from start to finish. She had the nerve to say that the family doesn’t have the skills and tools they need to help this woman, but it looks like Iyanla doesn’t have the skills or tools either.
