Ianyla Pilot

Hey isn’t that… Iyanla Vanzant, star of OWN’s “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” doling out her expert advice during a taping of the network’s new show “Help Desk” at Union Station on Sunday. Our colleague Macy Freeman reports, “Between takes she was candid with the group, asking one guest, Baltimore resident Devonna Bell, if she could hold her 8-month old daughter Hagen.”

On “Help Desk,” hosted by Gotham Chopra (son of Deepak), famous life coaches set up shop in a public space and offer their services free of charge on a first come first serve basis. More than 200 showed up at Sunday’s event. Vanzant asked one woman, “Are you willing to put your butt on the line for what you believe?” The series is slated to premiere on OWN in March.
