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!!!
What are your thoughts regarding tonight's episode of BFV????
