Bob Whitfield calls Iyanla Vanzant a drill sergeant
Bob Whitfield got a little more than he bargained for when he joined ex-wife Sheree Whitfield on “Iyanla: Fix My Life.” The former NFL star told OWN life coach Iyanla Vanzant that he feels as though he and Sheree need a coach to help them figure out how to effectively co-parent.
Iyanla made it clear that at some point in their session, Bob and Sheree would be at odds with her. When Bob sat down with reporters, he
“She’s like the worst coach you ever had, but trying to make you better. You’ll be like ‘damn, coach! Why you gotta cuss me out like that?’” said Bob. “It’s worse than a drill sergeant!
Whether he feels Iyanla really helped or not, Bob gave her a ringing endorsement, stating, “I would say for anyone that wants to have their life completely analyzed and thrown up on TV, they should go to Iyanla because she be going H.A.M. deep!”
