Prayer circles and therapy sessions have not been successful at calming their ever-brewing storm, so the Braxton sisters have summoned a great spiritual reinforcement to help them overcome their ongoing struggles and frustrations with each other.
Fans of the WE tv hit series Braxton Family Values have witnessed the up’s and down’s between the sisters’ for the past four seasons. This week, arguments and emotions boiled over, resulting in a brokenhearted Evelyn Braxton calling up trusted friend and well-known spiritual advisor Bishop T.D. Jakes.
The senior pastor of The Potter’s House of Dallas will sit down with the family, including both parents, for two emotional episodes that begin airing this week.
Braxton Family Values follows the lives of the Braxton sisters, Grammy Award-winning artist Toni, Grammy-nominated artist Tamar, Traci, Towanda and Trina – along with their mother Evelyn.
“The Braxtons are an immensely talented and loving family bogged down by a series of lingering wounds, misunderstandings, and disappointments that have robbed them of the harmonious union and close-knit bonds that they once shared,” said Bishop T.D. Jakes. “Sitting down with the family as a group and in one-on-one settings, we were able to achieve some dynamic breakthroughs that their loyal fans will be delighted to watch unfold. This is truly can’t-miss TV.”
Bishop Jakes provided the family with a safe environment that ignited a conversation that was open, honest, and sometimes uncomfortable, but in the end, worthwhile.
“I see my family falling apart,” Evelyn tells him in their first session, suggesting that her divorce from husband Michael was the catalyst in her family going astray.
But while oldest sister Toni agrees the divorce of her parents caused a lot of unchecked hurt, she doesn’t believe it is the main cause of the family drama.
Tune in this week to see the Part One on Thursday, July 9th at 9pm EST on WE tv.
