The Braxton sisters are back after a dramatic first half of the season saw Toni, Tamar, Towanda, Traci and Trina quit the series, only to return for a tense family meeting mediated by life coach and author Iyanla Vanzant. In these episodes we see the sisters deal with Tamar’s divorce and the sad passing of Trina’s ex-husband. Highlights include Tamar and Traci’s mini-tour, Tamar competing in Celebrity Big Brother and Traci heading off on her own tour.

The best Braxtons episodes ever!

The last four episodes of Braxton Family Values sees soul-sisters Toni, Tamar, Traci, Towanda and Trina back after their walk-out.

When the Braxtons returned for the sixth season of their reality show, Braxton Family Values, no one (the stars included) could have guessed at the drama that would go down when Toni, Towanda, Trina and Tamar actually walked off set – mid-scene no less! – leaving just Traci Braxton to carry on the show all alone. That’s right, they decided they weren’t getting paid enough and showed their displeasure by storming out and refusing to record the rest of the season.

Traci, it seems, blindsided the family by refusing to leave, and getting her friend The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks to join her in the remaining episodes. However, sister Trina has no hard feelings. “I will never regret standing by my family as a unified situation and coming together,” she told Atlanta Black Star. “However … my sister had to do what she needed to do for herself and her personal family. And the network had to do what they needed to do to not go black so everything happens for a reason.”

Things got even crazier when the sisters were invited on to Iyanla Vanzant’s show to try and get some emotional support – and they accused her of just using them to up her ratings … and walked off that set too! Tamar called the talk show host “the Devil”! Luckily for us, it all seems to have been resolved and the sisters are back – but with this family, nothing is ever simple. Which is why you just cannot afford to miss the last four episodes of the season.
