Traci-Braxton

*Name a family without any ups and downs and you’re bound to get strange looks.

The Braxtons are no exception as the sisters have had their share of drama to go along with their successes. But according to Traci Braxton (pictured above), none of their good fortune would be possible without her big sister Toni making her mark as a popular Grammy-winning singer.

“This little lady right here, my big sis @tonibraxton is the reason I am here today! She paved the way for all of us to be successful!” Traci captioned with a picture she posted earlier this month of Toni holding a Grammy.

Traci’s show of love resulted in some shade thrown her way, courtesy of fellow sister Tamar Braxton. Responding to comments from one of Traci’s fans, who mentioned that Traci would win a Grammy of her own because of how good her music is, Tamar tweeted the following:

Tamar then deleted the tweet and picked up later with a Twitter rant about how her fans, her haters, her sisters and her hard work resulted in the success she has now.

Tamar’s comments appeared to not have registered with Traci, who hasn’t responded to her sister. Nevertheless, Tamar did come up in a recent interview Traci did with Juicy Magazine. In her eyes, Tamar is still her sister no matter what they go through or say about each other.

“You know what, fans like to be on sides, and try to ’cause some division with the sisters or speculate anything.’ That’s my baby sister. Tamar and I, we know we love each other – we know we say things to each other and everything like that. But you know, she’s the baby sister,” said Traci. “We spoiled her – she’s going to be spoiled. It’s like Venus and Serena, you know, when they have a match together, but they still love each other.”

As for whether the sisters’ reality show “Braxton Family Values” should continue, despite Tamar recently expressing that she’s unsure about returning, Traci hopes the popular series will keep going until it becomes a case of it not being able to do so anymore.

“I think we should let the show keep going on and on until it dies down,” she said. But you know everybody can identify with us when we’re taping, or showing people our lives and letting them know, you know, this is us. And people say, ‘You know what, that’s my family.’”
