Iyanla Vanzant, the spiritual counselor who hosts "Iyanla:Fix My Life" on the OWN channel, may be getting berated by rapper DMX next season.

Earl "DMX" Simmons will appear on the second season of Vanzant's show where he will receive a visit from Vanzant in his hometown of Yonkers, N.Y. The rapper's temper may flare during portions of the show where the spiritual counselor attempts to help him overcome issues with addiction, trouble with the law and his family life, according to OWN.

In a preview of the episode featuring the 42-year-old rapper, he is seen yelling at Vanzant after she questions if he is on drugs during their session.

"Shut the (expletive) up man," he yells at her.

Vanzant did not back down in the preview provided by OWN.

"I'm not intimidated by you," she told the rapper. However, the exchange did not stop there.

"You don't got to be intimidated, stop running your mouth," the seemingly enraged rapper yelled back.

The situation seemed to turn more volatile when Vanzant began to raise her voice.

"You don't get to speak to me ever again," she yelled back at DMX.

The spiritual host known for helping reality television show star Evelyn Lozada last season. She eventually walked away from DMX.

"He don't get to roll up in our park and play his game," Vanzant said.

While it is unclear whether Vanzant gave up working with the rapper, people can witness the entire episode during the season two premiere of the show Saturday, April 13 at 9 p.m. ET.

Last year, Simmons revealed that he was ordained as a deacon despite making media headlines for personal troubles. While Simmons said he has read through his Holy Bible in its entirety, the rapper admits that he may have some soul searching to do before preaching from the pulpit.

"Yeah, I read the whole Bible. I just been made a deacon at the church I used to go to – Morning Star. I would like my first sermon to be there or in Yonkers," the rapper said in a Global Grind interview about the church in Arizona that ordained him. "The biggest step is not in the studying, reading, but the warning to change the way you live. Wanting different things for yourself, and making that change because if you still want to drink and smoke, you could read as much as you want, that doesn't mean you're ready."
