She said, that although production came to halt because of the COVID-19 pandemic she and her family were filming the next season of the hit reality show. “We were filming, even during the pandemic, we’ve been filming. We came up with a clever idea and it’s been working out very well.”
The “Another Sad Love Song” singer also told the hosts in spite of the recent hardship her family faced following her sister Tamar Braxton’s hospitalization, they are doing a lot better. “My sister Tamar had a little situation, but it’s not my business to tell her business,” Toni said. “But I can say that our family is doing so much better, we’re in a healthier place. And, I have to tell people that mental illness is not a joke.”
The “Love and War” singer was treated at a mental health institution following her suicide attempt in July according to the AJC. Tamar, 43, expressed what led to her attempt weeks after her hospitalization on Instagram. She said she felt she was overworked and underpaid. “Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most.”
Following her sister’s suicide attempt Toni took to social media to emphasize the importance of family. She shared a throwback photo of her hanging out with her sisters Tamar, Towanda Braxton, Trina Braxton, Traci Braxton, and their mother Evelyn Braxton. She wrote, “Family is everything! Especially sisters!”
We tv issued a statement regarding Tamar’s hospitalization and even delayed the premiere of Tamar’s new show “Get Ya Life” to Sept. 10 in regard to her condition. The company later released the singer from a working relationship.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade. As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best.”
Tamar’s six-episode show is set to premiere next week on We tv.
