Last week, we reported that in the midst of their contractual drama with WE tv, and their seemingly on-going family issues, the Braxton sisters would sit down with Iyanla Vanzant to get some help.
It’s not the first time a Braxton sister has worked with Iyanla. Trina sat down with her ex-husband Gabe to discuss the issues in their marriage, their rocky divorce and the relationship Gabe has with their sons. In that episode, Iyanla alluded to the fact that the way Trina handled her relationship with Gabe could be traced back to what she saw her mother do with her father. It sparked something in her and she walked out of the room.
But perhaps in this upcoming episode, it’s a topic we’ll be able to explore as the women chat about their familial bonds and where they have been breaks along the way.
In one clip that’s already surfaced, Toni shares that she is often disappointed by the level of animation Tamar exudes when she attempts to relay a story. I think Tamar’s extra-ness is something we’ve all noticed. But if you thought Iyanla was going to scold Tamar for her exuberance, then you thought wrong. Watch how this particular moment unfolded onscreen.

Tamar: The show was completely different and then it turned it into a dramatic shenanigan, example of a family.
Tamar shares an example of how she felt the editors manipulated footage from the show.
Toni: I wish my sister could narrate without all the expressions
Iyanla: Is that the person or is that the performance?
Toni: No that’s the person. That’s from infancy.
Iyanla: How does that make you feel when you see that?
Toni: I feel disappointed that she has to be animated to express herself.
Iyanla: That’s just who she is, from infancy. And that makes me feel…
Iyanla: …in her big personality, in who she’s been all of her life.
Toni: That’s not a nice thing to feel.
Iyanla: I know. Not at all.
Toni: Got it. Sorry Tay.
Tamar: That’s okay.
We can’t wait to see this episode.
The two-part finale airs on Thursday, Sept, 27 and Thursday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. on WE tv.
