Judging by the lack of response that not too many watched the show. I didn't watch it either but was merely curious as to what others thought?

I dont have television. I did watch the 3 or 4 clips of the show on youtube and it was off putting. One can find the entire show on the internet to watch now but I think I will pass.

    This is Iyanlas recap, guessing OWN doesn't post its' whole episodes to youtube. Of course one can find it on alternative sites.

      Listened to the first 7 minutes. She said that he was in a federal prison but it was a state case and he is in a state prison. She also said that Marie believed there was a chance that Lamar would not go to prison. I dont know where she got that idea.  He was no small time dealer and frankly his sentence of 10 years with 7.5 years to be served before parole could be granted was a very lenient sentence for the amount of drugs he was caught dealing.  What I am curious about is how she intends to protect herself from extortion. Prisoners will be threatening Lamar's life unless Marie pays money. And while I think Lamar has gang ties that may afford him some protection, most likely they will be demanding money from Marie, too.

        There were a few inaccuracies on that show. I think it's great that Iyanla cleared up the tax and bail bond situation.

         

        I was thinking about how he would be threatened, maybe she'll have to beef up his comissary account.

          Iyanla did clear up the misconception of how much Marie actually spent bailing out Hot sauce. She also confirmed what many of us here at LP already knew in terms of what Marie actually netted after all tax obligations were met. 90% of the population thinks she took home $188 million when in reality it was one third.

          Glad to hear that Marie did get financial advice and most of us just hope that she follows it. I had heard elsewhere she bought a plantation, not sure if it was a joke or just a reference to a large estate.

            When they come to dirt bikes and go carts in the garden she says "You were blessed by god with this money and don't value the things in your gardenb that your money bought when 100 years ago your ancestors might have been in this same garden picking cotton while being whipped" or something along those lines.

              If winning the Powerball didn't fix her life, nothing will.  I really don't feel sorry for her.

              Its really hard to agree with an extreme right winger such as your self LiveInGreenBay..lol

                  I don't believe I mentioned any of our founding fathers
                  Mr. LiveinGreenBay. I simply agreed with you.
                  but since you asked the question.

                  by todays standards?...yes!!
                  however there were different political parties back in those days.
                  keep in mind that Jefferson was certaintly more liberal than Washington.

                  Washington was only liberal towards getting away from English rule
                  and thats so he could line his all ready deep pockets with more money!

                  they do have a record of George Washington buying a lottery ticket!
                  I bet if he would have won, he would have put the money to better use
                  than bailing out a thug named "Hot Sauce"

                      I have never discontinued my education. always eager to learn.
                      you mention public school as if you were educated in some expensive private institution.
                      almost like your snubbing your nose in the air, like a stuck up cheerleader.
                      I'm guessing you were home schooled?

                      Ma..Ma..Mama say's "Green Bay Packer fans are arnory
                      because thier team sucks!"

                      well, if your thick enough skinned and can honestly make a valid point
                      to your argument then I will tip my glass.

                      you honestly believe that in todays times, that
                      GW and TJ (with thier belief systems)
                      would be considered bleeding heart liberals?
                      and would join the Democratic Party
                      really?

                        Slavery ended in 1865 under Abraham Lincoln and was widely protested by the Democrats.

                        Wouldn't it be ironic if the plantation she bought was in use prior to that time?

                          Iyanla certainly implied that it was a slave plantation but I can not find anything on the internet about her house.  It doesnt quite look as old as the other houses from that period. Plus those two wings - I've never seen them in a house from that period or a modern house.  Maybe those are more recent additions? You would think that area, Sharlotte, NC,  would have a list of historical plantation homes in their city/county. If they do, I havent found it.

                            Were not real proud of that part of our heritage here in N.C.
                            not like Georgia or Virginia, or some of the other southern
                            states...the "old south" is gone with the wind.

                              Enough.  There are plenty of listings of historical plantations for NC, including a few in Brunswick County where Marie lives. I just cant find Marie's home which makes me question whether her home really was a plantation home.
