Neffeteria Pugh is Still Upset Iyanla Vanzant Called Her a Guttersnipe

Iyanla Vanzant is no stranger to criticism.

Iyanla Vanzant has had plenty of controversial moments on “Iyanla: Fix My Life.” Although Iyanla’s goal is to help her clients heal, there are times when she’s just not successful. In fact, there have been reality stars who have complained about the process. Tamar Braxton is one of those people. She went on the show with the rest of her family. And the Braxtons struggled to make any progress.

While Iyanla did hold Evelyn Braxton and Michael Braxton Sr. the most accountable, she didn’t hold back on the Braxton sisters either. And it didn’t take long for her to clash with Tamar.

Tamar would later call Iyanla out on Twitter. And she even called her a “devil.”

She would say more in interviews. And she said that the real issue was a family member revealed that Tamar was molested as a child. And things went left from there because that’s not information Tamar wanted to be shared.

After Shay Johnson calls out Iyanla Vanzant, Neffeteria Pugh has something to say.

The latest reality star to clash with Iyanla is Shay Johnson from “Love And Hip Hop Miami.” She went on the show so she and her brothers could work out their issues with their mother. But she was blindsided by complaints about her from her brothers, and she snapped when Iyanla asked her to not respond when her brothers opened up.

After they argued, Shay decided to leave the session. And Iyanla no longer wanted to work with Shay.

While Shay has been discussing the episode on social media, another reality star who has a controversial past with Iyanla had something to say, too.

And Neffeteria Pugh isn’t over Iyanla calling her a “guttersnipe.” She also said the show made her marriage worse.

    Neffe is a deeply hurt person who refuses to recognize what’s causing her issues.
    Shay is the same way sorta. She recognizes there are issues but refuses to resolve them.
    Personally I don’t see the wrong in anything Queen Iyanla has done. There’s a method to the process and they didn’t adhere to it.
    The defensiveness and delusions got in their way or they were just blind to their behaviors.

      Right you are,some people are so caught up in their own stuff and can’t see no wrong in anything they do,they have to immediately reflect whatever behavior that is their responsibility on someone else cause it’s to painful to except their own behavior as wrong,learned behavior and all they know as survival instincts, its easy to blame Iyana for the process thereby excusing your behavior as if it only started once you sat down with her and you had no clue that your behavior was unacceptable all a long as well as other members of your family

    • Marie

      November 18, 2020 at 6:14 pm

      I totally concur. She called them out for their horrible behaviors and they couldn’t take it. At the end of the day Ms. Vazant will be fine these two broads will still be broken and lost souls tripping on some reality shows that show their buffonery and ignorance.

      I truly believe that hearing the truth for some people is very difficult.They choose to write their own narrative. Essentially, you will never find peace and true freedom if you continue to be a slave to your own distortion. Just because the truth hurts, does not mean it’s not the truth. Most times when other truths are exposed, person’s say ” you made it worse”. Well, it had to cone to a head, that’s all. Now, what did you learn? Will you continue to say it someone else’s fault? What part of yourself can you make better? How will you move forward?

      Please don’t come here and brag and reward Iyanla,for that ugliness. I have watched her tv shows, a few times, out of disappointment, hoping I would see a positive change in her. Is she still cruel to women and girls? She sure does treat men like kings.
      I thought she was a “sista”. I thought she had been schooled on how not to demean females.
      I guess our society will continue exalting men. The husbands she speaks to, have done wrong, but they get exalted and coddled. Dont get it……
      But I am glad I don’t kiss up to men and tear women down.

        Pam you and I must be the only ones who see that she only for the ratings and not to encourage females. If I ask you not to include some of my past pain why would you do except for ratings.

        • Trice

          November 18, 2020 at 10:03 pm

          This is such a whiny narrative. Iyanla does not coddle toxic people like Shay and Neffe who don’t want to be helped. If you come on her show and aren’t serious about being helped, you will get called out, male or female. Ask DMX. And if you don’t want to discuss your past pain, you don’t really want therapy. Neffe and Shay didn’t want therapy, they wanted a check and TV appearances.

      • Trice

        November 18, 2020 at 9:59 pm

        Stop it. The problem is y’all expect Iyanla to coddle people because they’re females. If you’re toxic, Iyanla is calling you out on your BS period. If Shay and Neffe are who you’re siding with, two toxic women who have been toxic on TV for pay, that’s on you. Iyanla has been hard on men before. Ask DMX.

        November 22, 2020 at 11:18 am

        What does being a “sista” have to do with calling people out on their ish? Iyanla and DMX did’t get along either…remember? There are a lot of us who don’t want to hear the dirty truth about how we act sometimes. Iyanla gives the dirty truth whether you like it or not. Some people appear to be strong and tough on the outside, but as soon as someone tells them about themselves they get weak and whiny. Iyanla is not being ugly..she is being honest! There are people in our race that desperately need that honesty because they go on public platforms and embarrass the black race..making us all look ignorant!

      You can’t help a person who doesn’t want to be helped. The show is not about things going the way YOU think they should go maybe that’s the reason why you couldn’t be helped don’t blame iyanla because you refused to listen to what she says

      I agree with your opinion..Miss Iyanla is old school and straight to the punch. I think both ladies are use to controlling a situation along with no listening when they get touched by the truth..They need to dig deep for the healing.

    • Stella

      November 19, 2020 at 12:49 pm

      I agree, In Fact I know it’s my opinion and everyone has one But I Love The Show and in all Reality this show has healed me in Areas by just watching it…This Lady is doing a GREAT JOB🙏And if this it over for the show I just want to say JOB WELL DONE GOD’S GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT”POWER TO THE PEOPLE”

      Exactly. I am sure Neffe been called a B!tc# plenty of times however this is the one time that torments you..PA-LEASE.
      And negative people connect with like minded her & Shay connected over some words they don’t like. Both of them went on there for clout not help.

    • Darlene N Anderson

      November 19, 2020 at 9:51 pm

      EXACTLY,the truth hurts!!! I ABSOLUTELY love how Iyanla handled the both of them. They are used to people being fake and telling them what they want to hear instead of telling the the truth. Excuse my French but she got down on sen h-es level and they couldn’t take it…PERIOD!!!

    • Renee'

      November 20, 2020 at 12:06 am

      You are spot on 💯💯. Shay won’t admit her faults. She likes to blame everyone else period. What did Mz. Iyanla do that disrespected her?? If she wants a relationship with her brothers – why come they can’t expess how they feel n interact with her. Shay wants to run the whole show. Didn’t she call Mz. Iyanla for help. Enuf said!

    • Turonda Holloway

      November 20, 2020 at 9:04 pm

      Both Shay and Neffe have foul mouths, they don’t respect anyone. They want to tell and scream to get their insane point across. Both are narcissistic and dominating personalities. True iguana is bold but she has to be to deal with personalities that are damaging to the process.

  2. Blackrose

    November 18, 2020 at 8:51 am

    No one wants to take accountability. Why didn’t she mention why she called her that? Stop whining you went on the show for attention. You got it.

    • Renee Lee-Coleman

      November 18, 2020 at 11:13 am

      They both need to take ownership of their issues and actions. Shay your brothers and mother got something good out of this. Newfield you are just said. You have issues you are rude and treated your husband like crap. She called you how you were acting.

  3. And What?

    November 18, 2020 at 9:47 am

    I feel like Neffe and Shay came on the show for a check and they couldn’t handle it when they were hit with the truth about themselves. So now they want to get on IG and put all this blame on Iyanla. It says a lot that Shay’s whole family was able to get the help they needed and she’s the only one who didn’t because of that mouth of hers. And Neffe’s ex husband seemed to get help too. Seems like Neffe and Shay are the problems.

    Iyanla said her TV persona was a guttersnipe but her real self, Neffeteria, was a much better human being. Neffe misunderstood Iyanla and that’s on her. But it’s interesting seeing how passive-aggressive Shay is being about all this. She’s bothered that most placed blame on her for her time on the show ending up the way it did. So she thought she was slick by inviting Neffe on her IG Live so they could make Iyanla out to be the issue.

    Everybody that wanna put blame on iyanla need to stop pointing the finger at her and point the finger at themselves. None of them wanted to do the work. Nobe of them wanted to hear thectruth. They arexall just to a YES person and iyanla was not going to be that person. Tamara Shay and Neffe all didnt except the process. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then its a dam duck. Iyanla isn’t leaving due to backlash cause the show has been successful before those ladies even came on there its called it ran its course and time to move on.

    In a way both u women are the same. U claim u want help, but when things don’t go your way it’s somebody’s eles fault. U women need to really change, cause it’s not good for people around u and ur kids, Neffie u know u didn’t really come on there to fix ur marriage, neitheir did shay want to fix her family coming on with ur breast out, u 2 really need some help and i’m here to tell u i van see through u, i know crazy when i see it.

      Shay and Neffe are very disrespectful they are the ones came on the show and Iyanla only tried to help these two damaged girls I say girls because when you can’t own up to what your doing so grow up and Shay all you are is a attention little thot

  8. BJJone

    November 18, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    Really Neffie get over it ur not that important and never has been..This women is real n DO NOT hold back… ur just a wanna be celebrity that’s greedy for that money..I say if ppl don’t wanna go on her show knowing she’s gonna be real…stay the hell off…I saw that show n she just called like she saw it…hopefully you nnur mom is better because u 2 we’re HOT MESS!!!!!!

    Ms. Iyanla, Judge Judy and that one teacher who was about educating/preparing you for the standardized test and the real world and also about that life have one thing in common: You could not run game on them. You will do the work. And you will not lie about it.

    What made each of these “stars” and some obstinate regular folk think that they could run game or any other agenda on her? THEY CALLED HER!

    Their complaints sound like a new gym member: the end result sounds good until they gotta do that burpee with push-up/split lunge jump/mountain climber with a 90 second plank as a rest.

      Always viewed Tamar, Shay, and Neffe as broken/hurt women. It’s reflected in their body language and attitudes. If I had their deep seeded problems, I wouldn’t air them out on public t.v. and that’s no disrespect to Iyanla. The road to any sort of healing for all 3 is to start with self. Because at the end of the day you can’t control other people’s behavior. All 3 went on the show to point the finger at others and wanted to correct other people’s behavior. But when the tables were turned couldn’t handle what they dished out. Anyway they can diss Iyanla all they want…she had her own show, not just some random messy participant on a reality show.

      These kinds of people KILLS ME!!!!
      what you go on the show for?? You know her tactics…..they show the world how they are on those shows but when a real one comes to you ABOUT YOUR TRUTH they wants to start talking about her process ain’t right! If you want a therapist that more, nicer and not going to just come out and tell you about yourself you should have paid and went to that kind of therapist but you didn’t you went to her because she keeps it real but they just want to point the finger point the finger at everybody else so when she points the finger back at them it’s a problem kml just crazy!!!! she told the truth about THEM ALL I’m sure it’s not their 1st time hearing what she said(just worded better lol) pretty sure your family members and the streets has told you the same things! it’s just the fact that you got it told to you on national TV so now it’s a problem.
      I’m sure this all has to be tiresome and she has to be drained from this types of people I know I WOULD!!! Some just are damaged goods if you ask me good day😌

    Iyanla is the typical psychiatrist who speaks to her clients in a monotone and an aggressive voice. She is rough and condescending which is a turn off if you are an adult going to get insight for tools to live a better life and get alone with people or your family. I don’t want to go to a psychiatrist or a psychologist who screams, shouts and calls me names. That is counterproductive and would put anybody in a defensive mode. I have seen other psychiatrists on reality shows who speak to their clients in a calm manner and they are able to help them work through their issues.

    I don’t like to say people are too far gone to get help but in shade and neffeteria case they’ve been through way too much and they do you seen the gutter in the street way too much feel like change play Daiso gun hold on imma get you back in a brain they don’t even have an open space for any opportunities they so broken

    I didn’t like how Iyanla talked to Neffe she be little her. Neffe needs helps the trauma she went through looking for her mom getting raped I believe at crack house. Anyone who agree with how Iyanla talked to Neffe is crazy. Iyanla does stuff for ratings. At first her show was ok then she got that touch of fame and big headed she went left. Since her show coming to a end she can think about how she acted on tv. I was disgusted how she talked to Neffe blaming her for actions.

    I have no empathy for Shay and Neffe. Both have made careers out of being nasty and horrible to other people. Iyanla called a spade a spade and they want to cry about it. Oh please. I’m glad Iyanla is ending this show. Too many toxic people think they should be coddled. Then they wonder why the real world chews them up and spits them out. Neffe and Shay are the problem. Neffe was just on social media arguing with a rapper. And Shay is still on reality tv being toxic and nearly got in a fight last year. But Iyanla is the problem? BYE. Take your coins Iyanla and avoid these toxic reality stars moving forward. Anyone feeling sorry for them is crazy.

  15. Nikki

    November 22, 2020 at 11:00 am

    The issue with those that have a problem with Iyanla is: They don’t like hearing the truth about themselves. These ladies are very troubled and have nasty attitudes. The ones who have the most trouble getting along with Iyanla (DMX was one of them too)are the ones with the most severe issues! Lmao at “Guttersnipe,” but it’s true.
