Braxton Family Values returned Thursday night leading off with an explosive yet theraputic session. All five sisters, including Toni, addressed communication and other issues that were causing friction. While each of the sisters had specific points, some more shocking than others, Toni was brutally honest in claiming her sisters are preventing her from moving forward, professionally !
“I feel like I’ve done so much to help my sisters that I’ve taken away from helping myself. Now I need to help myself and concentrate on redefining my career and my sisters won’t let me do it,” Toni said during Thursday’s episode. “It makes me angry that they think I’m being selfish when I feel that I’ve been so unselfish. My first tour, my sisters were on tour with me. My first tour. My first time I’m out from under my parents arms. This is my time to be a woman and be out there and be wild… whatever I wanted to do. I couldn’t do that because my sisters were with me.”
Toni’s words came out during the heated theraputic session with Dr. Sherri, this after she told Traci she not only needed to loose 20-40 pounds but that she had let herself go.
“I want Traci to loose 20-40 pounds, now, and stop thinking that her tummy sticking out like that is hot because it’s not,‘ said Toni. “Too cute of a girl not to care, to let herself go. It’s nice to be thick and built but not like that. You didn’t always have that.”
She also let Tamar have it, agreeing with Towanda that her baby sister had become “mean” since the first season.
“Tamar doesn’t understand that she talks to people terribly and we are her family. We haven’t been the only people that have told Tamar this,” said Toni Braxton. “Tamar has had to hear this throughout her life. Some of the decisions and the things you have said have been mean.”
Despite what she shared with her sisters and vice versa, Braxton insists she never had a chance to enjoy her career and success on her own terms because they were always there.
“I had my own identity but I never got to have it by myself. Because I always felt I
had to share with my sisters,” said Toni. “That’s how I felt.”
Thursday’s episode of Braxton Family Values follows weeks of rumors that Toni did not want to participate in the show any longer nor the much-talked-about Braxton sisters album.
Braxton Family Values airs Thursday nights at 9pm (WEtv).
