The singer explained how the siblings were faring during a stop at Atlanta’s 96.7 The Beat Wednesday, where she also discussed her new single “Lifeline” and its meaning.
“It’s that I would die for you,” she says. “If anything that happens, I’m there for you. I would never leave you. And right now, how I feel about ‘Lifeline,’ it’s about my sisters. I miss my sisters. They are the lifeline of my life and I would die for my sisters. And whatever we go through, we still will come back to each other. And to me, that’s what lifeline is about.”
Braxton’s relationship with sisters Tamar Braxton, Toni Braxton, Towanda Braxton and Trina Braxton became strained after she forged ahead with filming the family’s WE tv reality series as the rest of the family — including their mom, Evelyn Braxton — quit filming over a pay dispute this summer.
During the season finale featuring a mediation session with Iyanla Vanzant last week, emotional moments emerged between the siblings, along with a moment of forgiveness between Traci and Tamar. But Traci has since made it clear she is not on speaking terms with Tamar, and the newly slimmed-down reality star hopes that’ll change for all her sisters by Thanksgiving.
“I hope so because this little dry spell with my sisters, it’s working my nerves,” she said during Tuesday’s interview, agreeing with DJ Scream. “Normally, we sit there, we laugh and play games and be goofy and sing all the time.”
Traci also acknowledged that there needs to be time allotted for the siblings to heal on their own terms.
“You have to let things happen on its own terms, so you can’t force it, and we’re women that are just real strong and strong-willed women,” she says.
