Plot Synopsis

After battling debilitating illnesses that left her out of the spotlight, Toni Braxton was looking to regain her status in the industry by turning to her mother, Evelyn, and her sisters: Traci, Towanda, Trina, and Tamar. As Traci dreamed of rejoining her famous sister on stage as a background singer, Tamar wanted nothing to do with the background. She wanted to be front and center and wasn't afraid to let everyone know that doo-whoppin for Toni was not what she needed. Towanda wanted nothing more than to escape life as Toni's assistant, but Toni didn't seem ready to give her up and shunned any new assistant. Trina wanted to be respected for her choices as a musician, even if that included performing with a cover-band, but her sisters couldn't believe that made her happy and made fun of her for it. Plus, Toni dealt with her bankruptcy problems.

Season 3, which premiered on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT on WE tv, followed the Braxton sisters as Toni pursued her acting career, Trina continued with her music career while working on her marriage, Towanda was still a super mom while looking out for her own needs, Traci grew tired of being the wannabe, and Tamar released a single, "Love and War," that went to #1 on iTunes.

However, old feelings quickly resurface. Season 4 opens with the whole family gathering to catch Toni's opening night on Broadway and celebrate Tamar's 37th birthday. But Toni skips Tamar's birthday party in favor of resting up for opening night, and Tamar is disappointed. The feuds continue to escalate during the New York trip, until Towanda reaches her breaking point, and her epic meltdown leaves the rest of the family dumbfounded.
