Terrell Owens, the former NFL star, recently announced that he recruited spiritual coach Iyanla Vanzant to help fix his life and revealed her prayer for him while his former publicist is supporting him.
Owens,39, took to his Twitter to share Vanzant's prayer for him, weeks after announcing his plan to appear on her OWN Network show, "Fix My Life."
"My prayer is that TO's story will teach us not to be so quick to judge and condemn w/o knowing the whole story," Vanzant tweeted to a fan in a message that Owens reposted.
His former publicist, Kita Williams, once appeared with Owens on the VH1 reality television
series, "The T.O. Show." Although she has stopped working with Owens, Williams spoke about supporting his decision to work with Vanzant to transition out of his NFL career.
"I think that Iyanla can really help him as he transitions from football into his real life," Williams told thejasminebrand.com. "And I think personally, there are a lot of things that he hasn't dealt with because all his life, he has been 'T.O' – the football player. He needs understand how to be Terrell Owens – the man, the father, you know the person that he may not have met yet."
Williams revealed that she and partner Monique Jackson, who also previously served as a publicist for Owens, are rooting for their former client and even spoke to Vanzant about helping to fix his life. Owens initially took to Twitter to announce that he would participate in "Iyanla: Fix My Life" on media maven Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network. He alluded to the fact that Vanzant was helping him figure out who he is.
"Been an emotional yet insightful day. After 39 yrs I'm learning who Terrell Owens really is (SIC)," Owens tweeted last month. "All this time I thought I knew. @IyanlaVanzant."
