Why did she decide to do “Iyanla: Fix My Life”
“I felt like it was time. You know, for the most part, I’m over it [persistent drama with ex-fiancee] and tired. I wanted it to be an end of a new beginning.”
The hardest “Fix My Life” moment for Govan to watch
“There is a lot that wasn’t put in it. For the most part, it’s hard. I had to take myself out of it and become a fan. Which is what made me cry. I could see the hurt, the pain. It was hard to watch. It was a hard pill to swallow.”

Comparing her ex-fiancee Gilbert Arenas to her father
“Their demeanor, control. I didn’t see it then, but I see it now. Its funny how I fell suit to my mom.”
Her biggest issue with her parents
“They don’t believe [when it comes to her sister, Gloria Govan] me. And I feel like sometimes they go where the winds takes them, opposed to parenting. That’s f*cked up, but that’s the truth.”
Her remarks concerning her issues with her sister, Gloria Govan
“I haven’t spoken about them [issues] so much, in honesty.”
Does she believe her sister and Gilbert had sex in her house
“She stayed with him in my house in DC for 3 days when I wasn’t there – things like that. There was a lot going on. And you telling me that you wasn’t beating [having sex]? Girl, bye.”
