The sisters of the Braxton Family have returned for season six of their reality show and boy has reality really taken its toll on everyone. Toni, Tamar, Traci, Towanda and Trina are all dealing with their own individual life battles, but because of this show, we –the public, have an inside glimpse of what’s been going on since we last saw them in season 5.
One question on the hearts and minds of everyone for Ms. Toni Braxton and her friend/beau Bryan “Birdman” Williams – are y’all finished or are y’all done pretending like there’s nothing more to this “platonic” relationship then what you claimed during season 5? Thanks to Towanda, who boldly confronts the elephant in the room surrounding the rumors about Toni and Birdman’s alleged marriage, we find out that NOPE, they’re not married – yet.
Toni admits that although the two are not husband and wife, they have been successfully dating for over a year and he has grown from being just a “friend”, to now being her heart (Awwww.) But, for these two that’s not where the buck stops.
After returning from a performance in Dubai, Toni brings back a couple of gifts and things for her sisters. A couple of hijabs and a special appointment with the Henna Princess to decorate the ladies’ hands causes speculation among the family. According to Towanda, henna is used in Dubai for wedding celebrations.
So, we ask you, Toni – what in the henna princess are you trying to tell people? And, adding more side eye to the equation, later in the episode Toni shows up with a very bright and chunky ring on her finger that claims is only a gift she received for her birthday.
Meanwhile, over in the world of baby sister Braxton – Tamar, life is seemingly starting over for her as well, after the news broke of her filing for divorce from hubby Vincent Herbert. The sisters are shocked by the news because they had to find out the same way the rest of the world did – through the streets that are always talking.
