I can tell you this season won’t dissapoint you Braxton Family Values’ fans!
Towanda Braxton is an internationally acclaimed singer, actress entrepreneur, and executive television producer. Best known for her current role as the star of WEtv’s hit series Braxton Family Values, Towanda has been involved in different facets of entertainment as early as age 5. She opens up to me about how her first job was working at Burger King, which she loved, at age 13, learning work ethic and how to support yourself, working your way from the bottom to the top.
As a result, she has been signed to Arista Records, LaFace Records, and Atlantic Records, where the only album ever released by r&b female group “The Braxton’s” which also included Toni, Traci, Trina and Tamar Braxton was produced.
When asked about making new music with her sisters or going solo, she expressed that right now she is focusing on her acting career and putting the breaks on her music career.
Towanda travels the world building the Braxton brand working directly with her sister and platinum selling pop r&b artist Toni Braxton.arl Payne, Media Personality Ebony Steele and a host of others.
Towanda developed her company the Secret Squirrels in an effort to provide training, certification and placement for individuals who desire to work as professional personal assistants, inspired by being Tony Braxton’s (her younger sister’s) assistant, expressing that juggling being a sister and working hand in hand with her sisters can be challenging at times, even though they are family. She gives us sage advice that the key to success in this business is to not take anything personal and to always understand family is family and business is business.
Not only has Towanda made her mark on the music, reality and acting world but she is now the face of one of the hottest pop culture and lifestyle magazines, La Palme magazine for March’s issue.
Towanda dishes to us which sisters shes closest with and which sister she is mostly likely to have conflict with at times but at the end of the day she says her sisters, her brother, her kids and her family are what keep her strong and able to juggle her full time career, overcome her divorce and get back her independence and be a full time mother all so gracefully.
Her charitable contributions are observed by working with the CEO of Saving Our Daughters – a non-profit organization that focuses on creating the tools to get teen girls discussing key issues in their lives. In addition to her many accomplishments to date, Towanda Braxton has been named St. Jude Children’s Hospitals “Partner In Hope.”
