BOLIVIA, N.C. — A North Carolina woman who spent part of her $188 million lottery jackpot bailing her boyfriend out of jail is due to appear on a Fix My Life reality series.

Marie Holmes, who won a $188 Powerball jackpot in 2015, made headlines when she spent more than $20 million of her newfound fortune bailing her boyfriend, Lamar "Hot Sauce" McDow, out of jail on multiple occasions.

The Oprah Winfrey Network announced Holmes is slated to appear on Iyanla: Fix My Life in September. The network said Holmes recorded her interview with self-help guru Iyanla Vanzant just 48 hours before McDow was slated to report for a 10 year prison sentence after pleading guilty to drug charges.

OWN said the interview will see Vanzant attempt "to help Marie cope with her new fortune before she loses it all."

Holmes' lotto winnings have also been put to good use in the form of buying school supplies for 300 children and making a $680,000 donation to the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Brunswick County.

Thanks to MaximumMillions for the tip.

              she could follow in her footsteps...I can see it now. "first fix my life" then an appearance on "The lottery ruined my life"
              and then after that maybe she'll start her own crappy Springer Spin off.
              Its pitiful. its like the universe is rewarding the crazies.

                      I never liked that Fix my life woman. She is kind of a bully and I believe she lost all of her fortune once. She stabbed Oprah in the back by agreeing to her own series with a competitor and it failed. And then Oprah forgave her and gave her a show. But I will watch...lol.

                        Change your name to tomato sauce and you can be her next boyfriend.

                         

                        As for me, I am waiting for hot sauce to get out of prison so we can have children named apple sauce, hollandaise sauce, and the baby will be called peanut sauce.
