Cover story: Team Braxton — Toni & sisters uncensored
By// S. Tia Brown
Sex isn’t the only thing that sells.
Apparently, sass is a hot commodity as well. That’s why only 16 months after its initial debut, Braxton Family Values— WEtv’s No. 1 reality series— is preparing to air its third installment.
The show highlights the uniquely enmeshed relationships of five talented sisters. All wanted to be superstars, but eldest sibling Toni Braxton is the only one who has “made it.” At least so far. Now, thanks to the success of their hit show, the other gals— Traci, Towanda, Trina, and Tamar— have refueled their race towards the bright lights of fame.
This month, the singing sibs are harmonizing over another high note: a “mini” series. Braxton Family Values is back with a six-episode run (they call it season 2.5), which begins airing on Aug. 16 (Thursdays, 9 p.m. EST). It will be followed by a spin-off series, Tamar & Vince, for baby sis in September, with an official third season next year.
JET caught up with the ladies to ask the tough questions, and make them dish on things the cameras can’t capture. As usual, the stars didn’t disappoint. This is the Braxtons uncut.
