The Braxtons Are Back


So, I have pretty much decided that Braxton Family Values is my favorite celebrity reality show. In that mix I also count the Real Housewives, because lets face it, after the first year they are celebrities. That holds true for Jersey Shore too. I'm not comparing it to Survivor or Amazing Race or those because they are pretty spectacular shows. The problem with both of those is you have to commit to the entire season. They have to be your life for four months from the outset or you just cannot get into it. Something like the Braxtons you can come in after a couple of episodes into a season and you are all good. Last season I got hooked on this show when WE had a marathon one weekend. I think that is how everyone gets hooked on reality shows. As much as I despised The Hills, if you put me in front of a television playing 8 hours of them back to back, anyone will get hooked.


I did not even know the new season of Braxton Family Values had even started until last night when I watched an episode. I am hoping it was just the first or second because for some reason WE does not put the show on ON Demand. I still don't even know what the heck WE really is except they show some bridal show constantly and apparently Trojan vibrators are the very best. Seriously? Every commercial break has Trojan vibrators. Apparently every person who watches WE is a woman who is getting married or is married and needs help with their sex life. I guess that makes sense because it would probably take you days upon days of television watching just to discover that a network like WE exists.

If you don't watch Braxton Family Values, you need to. They don't fake anything for the cameras. This family can create drama without even trying. I heard that Toni fired Tamar's husband as her manager so I am anxious to see that played out on the cameras and the mom has promised to slap the piss out of Tamar if she ever disrespects her mother again. Seriously, the confessionals of Tamar are worth the show alone. If you did not watch this week's episode you missed three minutes of Tamar getting Toni to admit she is having booty calls with her ex-husband.

Could someone explain to me how Toni can have declared bankruptcy twice but still live in a rental that costs $20K a month. Seriously. Between her and Teresa Guidice, I think everyone will want to declare bankruptcy because they make it look so easy and painless. Oh, and how spoiled do you have to be if you don't even know how to open a bottle of wine in your 40's?

Oh, Enty, I really do not need another reality show to add to my ever growing list of trash. Sigh. Will check for a replay... :)

Doesn't know how to open wine?? You mean she doesn't know how to screw off the top of the bottle??;)

You know I think those Trojan vibrators are not affiliated with the actual Trojan brand. It looked like a clear case of profiting off of a big name brand. Otherwise they would have said something like " brought to you by the makers of Trojan... The most trusted brand in America! " or some crap like that ; )

WHAT? The new season started? Crap, I missed it.

Enty is right, this is one "reality" show worth watching. Any family with that many sisters is gonna be interesting.

I remember that one Braxton sister from the best reality show of all time: The Starting Over House. I fucking loved that shit.

Awww, fuck yeah, Enty. I love the Braxtons. Tamar is AMAZINGLY hysterical. When she was all up in Toni's grill about Playboy, I was dying. And then her belly dancing classes. OMG. That may have all been in one epi. I don't remember. It's funny because all of the sisters in some way resemble Toni and that's how I remember them: long face Toni, young Toni, chunky Toni, etc. You know, their sound together is really good. I'm shocked that they broke up. They probably could have given En Vogue a run for their money back in the day.

This is my fave reality show too. And I just declared that over the weekend to my sister.
