Host: Iyanla Vanzant, a spiritual guru and the only person to ever diss Oprah AND Barbara Walters and live to tell about it
Dates Aired: 2001-2002
Signature Show: Actually, her best show wasn’t her show…at least in name. It was her two-episode chatfest with Oprah. Talk about great television…
Swivel Factor (on scale of 1-10): 45. We sistas love Iyanla. I personally have four of her books. I’ve never read them, but that’s besides the point.
Qualifications: She’s got the neck swivel down pat. Plus she out-“spiritualized” Oprah…on her own show.
What is She Doing Now: Pissing off Oprah? Just kidding. Her painful-to-watch groveling to Oprah during the last season of the Queen of Chat’s show landed her an upcoming show on the struggling OWN.
