From relationship fixes, to financial infidelity, to love advice, we covered all the bases on today’s show about love, marriage and relationships. We kicked off the show with relationship guru, bestselling author and host of OWN’s Fix My Life Iyanla Vanzant. With more than half of marriages in America ending in divorce, Iyanla came in to explain how we’ve gone from happily-ever-after to happily-ever-”never.”
“I don’t have time to make you happy.” –Iyanla
Another troubling relationship trend is infidelity, but not the kind you’re thinking. That’s because infidelity doesn’t always mean adultery. Kendra and Edmond Perkins have been married for seven years and Edmond has no idea that Kendra has been cheating on him… with money. She revealed her shocking secret to him today.
“I didn’t realize the extent of the shopping.” –Edmond Perkins
With her soothing voice and candid conversation, Delilah is the most-listened-to woman in America. From late nights, to lonely ride homes, eight million listeners tune in to her every week for love advice. But the woman behind the mic is a lot more than sappy love songs.
“They say ‘I love her’ … And that’s it!” –Delilah
It is such a strange sensation to actually see Delilah. I remember listening to her the in car with my mom almost every night. @katiecouric

Every night on Delilah’s radio show, people get personal, confessing everything from romantic crushes to tragic breakups. Delilah gives her callers relationship advice, but you may be surprised to find out she’s been divorced three times. Despite her own heartbreaks, she promises she still believes in love.
“I was all in… I wanted to be married.” -Delilah
