Braxton Family Values Season 4 Episode 1 "Bright Lights, Big Breakdowns" [VIDEO]

According to the YBF, during an interview with ABC NEWS RADIO, Towanda explained both the breakdown and fight with Tamar.
On Tamar:  “I detested the fact that everybody thought, or everybody was feeling that Towanda was jealous of Tamar. I’m like ‘how dare you think that someone who actually volunteered to carry your child to be jealous?’ That’s ridiculous to me. And whenever Tamar needed, and whenever Tamar wanted me to be there, I was there. That whole thing stemmed from one of Tamar’s Tamartians telling Towanda that she hopes her kids get raped and killed [on Twitter]. Do you understand what I’m saying? So of course there’s a certain retaliation that wells up in you when you talk about somebody’s children.”
Sidebar: Are we really taking Twitter that seriously? If they were a true fan of Tamar's then they would have never tweeted that to Towanda. Let's be real. I just think that's an excuse to argue. Who takes Twitter Trolls that seriously, especially when you are a public figure? And why does Tamar have to defend ignorant people to make you feel better? She knows they are ignorant and you know that they are ignorant so press that block button and move on.  People wake up in the morning with a mission to get under your skin. Why are taking the bait and allowing it to lead to discord with your real sister. Cray I say! 
On her breakdown: “I couldn’t be emotional. I couldn’t let everybody know how I was really feeling because as soon as I do there’s always a [back]lash. So I suppressed every time,” the mother of two explains. “I think there was only one other time — maybe not that big — I had lashed out and that’s, like Trina said, that’s when someone talked about my children. But when we were sitting together as a family I just felt that I wasn’t being heard, and it was a long time coming.” 
Sidebar: It is clear that Towanda has suppressed a lot of things, but that is not anyone's fault but hers. I guess since I remember her on a show called The Starting Over House where she was working through some of these same issues with Iyanla Vanzant I have less sympathy and expected more from her. All I see is jealousy from Towanda and immaturity from Tamar. Where is Iyanla? Please come help fix their sister life because people in the world got real problems you know like getting shot from the police while being unarmed. This is just ridiculous. They should all be really happy and supportive and making music together while we all watch. An opportunity to show love to the masses is just being squandered. I'm sad about it because they are sisters and they are black women. Let's go higher please! Check out the full episode below and a short Dish Nation interview where Towanda kinda shades SWV. Please quit taking the bait to bash. They, meaning the media and Twitter trolls, want a response just like you are giving them. You could have just said, we love us some SWV. Stop it. You all are so much better than this.
