Braxton Family Values Season 7 details
Braxton Family Values (BFV) premiered on WEtv in April 2011. The series follows the lives of the Braxton sisters Toni, Tamar, Traci, Towanda, Trina, and their mom Evelyn.
In June 2018, the sisters were supposed to film the second half of Braxton Family Values Season 6 in Atlanta, but only Traci showed up. The series was then forced to go on an indefinite hiatus amid rumors that the sisters were demanding better pay and wanted to renegotiate their contracts.
The remainder of the season started airing again on August 16, 2018.
Fans feared that Braxton Family Values would end after Season 6 when the sisters revealed during an emotional but frank session in the Season 6 finale — which aired in October 2018 — that they were quitting. Reports claimed that they were quitting over pay, although it was also reported that they were actually contracted to film until Season 9.
However, Traci indicated that she would continue as the only Braxton sister and that she would invite other celebrities, including Phaedra Parks, to replace her sisters.
Tamar later announced in a radio interview that she would start her own solo reality show based on her life and music. She appeared to confirm that her show with ex-husband Vince Herbert, Tamar & Vince, had ended.
She also appeared to walk back previous claims that she was done with Braxton Family Values. This led fans to begin speculating that the pay issue might have been resolved.
Following prolonged speculation about the future of Braxton Family Values, WEtv finally announced on January 11, 2019, that the show was returning for Season 7 and that the upcoming season would feature all Braxton sisters, Toni, Traci, Towanda, Trina, Tamar, and mom Evelyn.
