Terrell Owens Reveals What He Didn't Like About 'Fix My Life'

Terrell Owens is revealing what he disliked about appearing on OWN Network's "Iyanla Fix My Life."

Owens, the 39-year-old former NFL star, broke down in tears while speaking to spiritual coach Iyanla Vanzant who helped him tap into the source of his pain to start on the path of being a better man. It seems Vanzant got through to Owens while on the show.

"You maximized your talents and didn't master your craft…Talents, skills and ability can only take you so far," Vanzant told him. "Your first craft is being a man."

Owens seemed receptive to Vanzant's insight about his life.

"That's eye-opening," he told her. "I understand."

Still Owens took to Twitter to reveal there may have been one thing about the experience with Vanzant that he did not like.

"The only thing I didn't like about the show is that I am NOT A PRETTY CRIER!! LOL," Owens tweeted. "After this...NO MORE TEARS FOR AWHILE!! #onlytearsofJoy."

One of Owens' more tearful moments took place when he met up with his father, a man who lived across the street for him and did not reveal his identity until the former football star developed a crush on a girl he later found out was his sister.

"For me to live across the street and know that you were my dad and know that on that side of the street you had kids, you had a wife. That was a family and I wasn't a part of that," Owens tearfully told his father. "I couldn't understand or wrap my brain around why I was across the street and wasn't a part of that. My mom was elsewhere and I'm staying with my grandmother and I didn't have a dad."

While his mother and father appeared on the show to work things out with him, the former NFL wideout took to Twitter to let over one million followers know how appreciative he was to get a second chance to connect with his parents.

"I wanna THANK my MOM & my DAD for being there for on this day (SIC)," Owens tweeted. "This lets me know that it's NEVER TOO LATE to start afresh. I LOVE YOU BOTH!"
