In season two of Braxton Family Values, Episode 11, the Braxton sisters believe they require counseling due to the fact that they just can’t seem to get along. The counseling session was supposed to bring issues to the table about why they are continually fighting. Everything was going well until Toni addresses her sister Traci. “I want Traci to lose 20-40 pounds now and stop thinking that her tummy sticking out like that is hot, ’cause it’s not.”
Needless to say, we are extremely disappointed, as I’m sure many of Toni’s plus size fans are. Traci’s weight can’t possibly be a reason as to why they are not getting along. What was even more shocking was the fact that no one could understand why Traci was immediately defensive and hurt by the comment. How would Traci losing weight make for a better relationship with her sister? I’m almost inclined to think that maybe Traci is right about feeling like she does not belong.
Traci may not have Toni’s figure, but she is beautiful in her own right. It’s perplexing that Toni Braxton would make Traci’s weight an issue when the family is plagued with plenty of REAL issues.
We can only hope that Toni Braxton thinks about the serious issues the family is facing, and not on her sister’s plus size frame.
