*If you missed it, during Monday’s revealing episode of VH1’s “Behind the Music,” Toni Braxton stripped down and got vulnerable about her family, struggle with money, rumors about her sisters, and dealing with the ups and downs of the music industry.
An especially tender moment was also shared among her family members, who thanked the singer for sharing the spotlight, and lifting the sisters up to a new level.
“I take my hat off to her for giving us this gift because it is a precious gift that she gave us,” said Traci Braxton. “She put us on this platform to make sure that we can follow our dreams, that we can have our own identity.”
Toni admitted she felt guilty for going solo, blazing her own path to success; but the creation of “Braxton Family Values,” smoothed out the wrinkles.
“I always felt guilty. My mom would say ‘don’t forget about your sisters.’ So, it made me feel like I could never be happy and that guilt I took with me for the rest of my life. I always felt like what I gave wasn’t enough. I often wondered if I had stayed, could I have changed the outcome,” Braxton said of life prior to the show. “It definitely makes me feel like okay, I am helping my family. But then I discovered they really didn’t need my help because they were so talented.”
The full episode will re-air on VH1 Thursday, November 1 at 8pm and Sunday, November 4 at 10 am. (All times Eastern.)
