On Thursday, Nov. 5, Trina Braxton opened up about her terrible wedding ceremony in a new interview with “In Touch Weekly” alongside sister Towanda Braxton while promoting the latest season of “Braxton Family Values,” which aired later that day.
Trina explained the reason why things were a disaster was because certain arrangements didn’t go as planned.
“It was absolutely horrible. My flowers didn’t show up. I had several cake-tastrophes.” She also added that although things didn’t go the way she envisioned them, the reality star and her husband Von Scales finished the deed. “It was a mess, but, you know, we both showed up.” The mother of two disclosed that one of her favorite parts of the nuptials was saying “I do.”
Despite the many mishaps, Towanda recounted a different memory from the event, one she shares with her now-fiancé Sean Hall. “I caught the bouquet and my boyfriend caught the garter.” That experience was followed by the two secretly getting engaged nearly a year after the ceremony. The couple announced their engagement to a TMZ reporter while at the LAX airport on Sept. 30. When asked if they planned to do anything special while in California, Towanda let it slip that she and Sean were getting married.
Trina said she got wind of the engagement the following day from another TMZ reporter who approached her at the same airport. “When I spoke with TMZ at the airport, that was the first I’d heard of it,” she explained. “We had absolutely no knowledge of it. I’m still unsure to what the reality of the situation is.”
The 45-year-old said her next instinct was to tell her mom that one of her daughters is getting married. When Towanda was asked why she kept her engagement a secret she revealed that she wants the viewers to experience everything and told them to “watch ‘Braxton Family Values.’”
The pair also discussed Trina’s bachelorette festivities, something they both admitted was a lot of fun because it was an “adult party.”
“I think it was an adult party,” Towanda said. “I think we merged individually. … It just made it even better, because we are women of a particular age, we’re over 40 so … we just like having fun now. We don’t have the inhibitions we had before.”
This interview comes weeks after their youngest sister, Tamar Braxton unfollowed her entire family on social media after the “Love and War” singer claimed their reactions to Tamar’s purported suicide attempt were staged on the “BFV” trailer.
