Everybody is trying to get in on the talk show business right now, including the Braxton sisters. Millions of viewers already tune in to Wetv faithfully each week to watch Traci, Toni, Towanda, Trina, Tamar, and even Miss E argue, hug it out, sing, and plenty more, and now the sisters are thinking they can get just as many people to watch them on a daily talk show.
“Toni, Traci, Towanda and Trina are all in LA right now, pitching a talk show,” a Los Angeles TV executive told The Huffington Post. “Think ‘The View’ but with a lot of sass! There will be the Braxton sisters’ version of ‘Hot Topics,’ called ‘Spill the T,’ plus gossip, relationships, fashion, makeover segments and celebrity guests. They have even gotten their mom to do an ‘Ask Mommy’ advice segment. A fun, fun show.”
This actually doesn’t sound like a bad idea. The Braxtons are definitely entertaining and without Tamar, they should be able to keep things tame, yet entertaining, on the set without overdoing it. It will be interesting to see what network might be interested in picking this up as there aren’t any talk shows on air with a group of all-black hosts. I like that idea.
It looks like the sisters are close to making this happen too. A family friend told HuffPost:
“Toni is totally into it, as is the rest of the family. They have somehow managed to secure Rob Dauber, a veteran of ‘The Rosie Show,’ ‘Oprah’ and ‘The Wendy Williams Show,’ to be executive producer and make them the next daytime hit. Plus, you know they are going to have one hell of a theme song!”
That is true. Would you watch a Braxton Family Values talk show?
