So tonight's episode of Braxton Family Values was INTERESTING to say the least LOL!!! Trina, Towanda, Tamar, and Tracey spent part of the episode trying to work through the drama that occurred during last week's episode. It was SO GOOD TO SEE Trina apologize to Tamar for making a negative comment regarding her parenting!! I am a FIRM BELIEVER in APOLOGIZING when we have wronged someone!! It shows your maturity and vulnerability!!! I am still trying to make sense as to why the Braxton sisters really STRUGGLE with COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY with one another!! Especially when they are all in their 40's!!! As I mentioned last week, I hope that Tamar becomes TRANSPARENT regarding what is REALLY going on in her life behind closed doors.....because I think that it would help us understand her perspective and actions/behavior!! I also believe that it would help others out there!! I do not know that I believe that everything is as well and in tact in her marriage as she says......and guess what that is OK!! All marriages and relationships go through UPS and DOWNS!! My perspective is that TRANSPARENCY IS KEY in order for US to truly HEAL and GROW!!!
In this episode Tamar also revealed that she was pregnant through IVF and unfortunately lost her baby girl....which is definitely sad and devastating. I wish that Tamar would have shared this information with her sisters without the cameras being present.....this way they could have possibly had a more GENUINE moment as sisters. I also think that it is important for them to rally around Towanda who is going through a divorce....as she often seems to be the sister who is THERE FOR EVERYONE ELSE!! This season will clearly have its UPS and DOWNS!!!
If this show has TAUGHT ME NOTHING....it has reinforced the importance of having GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS, EMPATHY, DEALING WITH DEEP ROOTED ISSUES HEAD ON, and how JEALOUSY/ENVY can be a VISCIOUS THING!!!

Welcome back to "Girls" Thursdays!!!! Today's clip captures Hannah, Jessa, and Shoshanna discussing how Hannah's male friend who she likes, has these disappearing acts. Shoshanna then starts sharing what she has learned from this book that she is reading about the tough love approach to the game of love. This clip reminds me of the MANY conversations that I had with my girlfriends over the years regarding guys and our assessments regarding their PERPLEXING BEHAVIOR!!! We often are trying to dissect if our romantic interests are really into us!!! It is almost every women's RIGHT OF PASSAGE to vent to your girls about what you are going through in your love lives or lack there of LOL!!! It can be very refreshing to be able to have this type of emotional support......especially when you are going through the ups and downs of romantic relationships!!! I love that Shoshanna typically gives GOOD ADVICE. However, the other girls rarely take it because she is the "innocent" one out of the group!!! What I have learned in life is that one should not discredit HELPFUL FEEDBACK because we feel that who such input is coming from has not EXPERIENCED enough in life.
If you have one or two TRUE GIRLFRIENDS who you can ventilate to, seek advice from, trust, and rock out with....HOLD ON TO THEM and do not take them for granted!!!
Do you remember having these types of conversations with your girls regarding your love interest?
Tomorrow (3/16/17) starts the NEW SEASON of Braxton Family Values......which is why I decided to blog about this sneak peak into season 6!!! I have watched this show since the very first season and continue to tune in!!! I had no idea that Tamar and Traci were at odds with one another!!! I had an idea that Towanda was going through a divorce and figured that it would not go down very easily. This season seems like it may have more to it than what has been advertised so far!
The sister who I feel like always LIVES IN HER TRUTH is Trina!!! To me, she actually lets the world into her life whether she is going through the greatest of times or the worst of times!! Traci also seems to authentically be herself and live her life on camera. I do not know that I can say the ABSOLUTE same for Toni, Tamar, and Towanda. It is clear that Toni only wants to show about 30 % of her life on camera, Tamar seems to struggle with a lot of insecurities which affects her ability to sustain healthy friendships/relationships with others and ultimately LIVE IN HER TRUTH, and Towanda is known as the "secret squirrel" who probably has more locked in the vault than not!!! We shall all see what this season will really address.......and if they all DIG A LITTLE DEEPER! I am a huge promoter of allowing ourselves to be VULNERABLE as a way to help and encourage others!!! Vulnerability can also be THERAPEUTIC FOR THE SOUL!!!!
Do you watch BFV? If so are you excited about this upcoming season? What are your thoughts?
