Don't waste your time watching these ppl!! Esp Tamar! WTF! I really don't know yyyyy she thinks it's cute to smack her big gigantar lips!!! IT'S NOT SEXY!!! Sit cho azz down, read a book on class and God gurl your NOT who you think you are honey!!! So stop it!!! You the kinda person that just NEEDS a bitch slap across yo botoxed up face, ugh! The ONLY Braxton I wd give credit to is Toni. These bitches (Tamar and Tawanda) are petty and they act like ratchet children!!! Tamartians .....WHAT IS IT? Foolishness!! Go talk to B gurl and get some help. If she'll talk with you, ew!! This show gave me a headache, bad vibes and I needed a bath afterward!! Totally worthless content.

It seems that this family just keeps getting more and more petty. Maybe it's to try and stay relevant. In the real world nobody drags things on as they do. Each one of them needs to work on themselves. And, what mother puts her child second and Aires her secrets on tv

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

The series offers a voyeuristic look at how the Braxton sisters balance their personal relationships with their spouses, children, and with each other, while trying to establish their own individual careers in the music industry. Meanwhile, the show seeks to address some of the tabloid rumors surrounding Toni Braxton's personal problems, including her physical health and troubled finances.

Some of the show's more dramatic conversations appear staged as the sisters exchange words and/or seek advice from Toni, who appears to be the most grounded member of the gang. But these moments are also designed to demonstrate how despite everything, they always come together as a family.
