The Braxton sisters, Toni, Traci, Towanda, Tamar, and Trina, all starred on “Braxton Family Values” for six years.
The Braxtons began as a quintet in the late ’80s, and while their singles weren’t mega-hits, it led to their oldest sister, Toni, becoming an R&B legend. The other four siblings continued on until 1998, when they went on hiatus, and returned in 2010.
In 2011, all five Braxton sisters came together to star in “Braxton Family Values” on WEtv. It lasted for six seasons, and led to the five of them recording a Christmas album together — their first as a quintet ever.
In July 2020, Tamar was found unresponsive after trying to take her life. She is recovering now. While all four of her sisters responded in various ways, Toni put it simply: “Family is everything! Especially sisters!”
In March 2022, they lost one of their sisters, Traci, who died of esophageal cancer at age 50.
“Hummingbirds were Traci’s favorite. We made these beautiful lockets enclosed with her ashes to honor our promise that we would take her everywhere we go,” wrote Toni on Instagram, accompanied by a selfie of her and her new hummingbird locket.
