Recent episodes of the reality show “Braxton Family Values” reveal singer Tamar Braxton behaving badly in her treatment of her sisters Trina, Towanda and Traci. This transpires while big sister, Grammy Award winning singer, Toni Braxton, looks on perplexed at what fame has done to her younger, not to mention louder, sibling.
Tamar, so full of hype over her career finally taking off after 15-years of less than successful attempts, threw her sisters out of her concert, for surprising her on stage. Tamar called them “motherf*****s” “bit**es” and “sparkly Teletubbies” (basically calling them fat) before her tour manager unceremoniously ejected them from the venue.

Tamar is painfully jealous of her sister Toni Braxton, who became a household name in the 1990s and enjoyed much success as a recording star at LaFace Records. That jealous keeps seeping through on the show. You also see why LaFace chose Toni, a good vocalist and piano player, who is relatively easy to work with. Tamar has the bigger voice…and ego. The latter producers are wary of in artists.
Ironically, if it weren’t for Toni, Tamar wouldn’t have a record deal, as she put the family’s name on the map and took her sisters on tours with her. Then Toni’s sisters, sans Traci, received a record deal and earned two moderately successful R&B hits "So Many Ways" "Only Love" and "The Boss."
Tamar Braxton's self-titled debut CD did not farewell in 2000 due to the weak lead single "Get None" but had the impressive song "If You Don't Wanna Love Me." However, sales were low and Tamar was dropped from her record deal. However, her 2014 CD "Love And War" has become a hit and it has gone straight to her head.
Not to mention, Toni introduced Tamar to music manager, Vincent Herbert, who has now helped to make her famous. You should thank God for your sister. She’s been a blessing to you. Your other sisters have been there for you as well.
