The first thing Iyanla does is confront Williams with a physical representation of his responsibility by bringing him 34 dolls. She asks Williams to hold as many dolls as he can, to feel the weight of what he's created. He can only hold 14.
"Let me ask you this question, Jay. Thirty-four children. At any point, did it dawn on you [that] this is too much?" Iyanla asks.
"No," Williams answers evenly.
When Iyanla asks Williams about using protection during sex, he insists that he did. "I probably would have 200 kids if I didn't use condoms," he says.
Williams says he never considered getting a vasectomy, either. "I don't want one," he explains, still holding the 14 dolls. "I don't have a problem with what I created."
As Iyanla continues to question him about his choices, Williams appears frustrated and decides to place each one on the dolls on the chair next to him. "I'm tired of holding the dolls," he tells Iyanla.
One by one, she hands each doll right back to him.
"I'm sorry, as a mom, I don't get not to take care of my children, no matter what I'm thinking or feeling," Iyanla says to Williams. "I didn't get to just put them down because it was inconvenient."
Iyanla's work with Jay Williams begins in the first of a three-part "Iyanla: Fix My Life," Saturday, Sept. 6, at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.
