“We Have An Open And Front Door” Towanda Talks Open Marriage With Andre On Wendy Williams
In the season four trailer for “Braxton Family Values” included above, it seems like all hell breaks loose. The sisters are talking about pressing charges, Tamar’s threatening to quit and in what seems like something completely out of character, we watch Towanda spazz out at a dinner table, pushing glasses over while she yells that no one cares about her.
Well, until the season premieres on August 14, we won’t know what’s going on and whether or not there will be any resolution. But today on the “Wendy Williams Show,” sisters Trina and Towanda came and sat down with Wendy to discuss what they could about their sisterly drama, the Braxton family album and the state of their on-again-off-again marriages.
See what the ladies had to say.
Towanda on her breakdown
“I know it was hard for everyone to see because generally, I don’t show emotion, so that was like 40 years of suppression.”
Trina: “Well it was really difficult to see her react that way because Towanda is always the Rock of Gibraltar. She always acts like nothing bothers her and nothing ever gets to her and she’s always like, ‘Oh, if you need anything, just call me.’ And that’s wonderful however if something’s on your mind, you have to let it out. Otherwise it turns into the blowout you just saw there.”
Tamar being at the center of the drama
Towanda: “Yea, even when were were growing up.”
Trina: “Well she’s the baby in every sense of the word so now that we are growing up and going through all these growing pains, she still wants to act like the baby.”
Towanda: “It’s good [our relationship with Tamar], its a great relationship. Even though we argue hard, we still love each other.”
Their Romantic Relationships
Trina: “Well you know, we’ve been square dancing for a lot of years, we’re in we’re out, we’re in, we’re out. We are concentrating on being good parents right now. And when we stepped away we decided that no matter what we are going through, that our kids come first.”
Wendy: “Gabe, and I didn’t realize this, is not the biological father of your two children.”
Trina: “But don’t tell him that honey…”
Wendy: “Do we ever see their bio father on the show?”
Trina and Towanda: “You don’t want to.”
Towanda: “He’s like…” *inflates herself to insinuate he’s overweight.*
Wendy: “Are you all sleeping in the same bed?
Trina: “You mean do, we sleep together? Yeah we do sometimes.”
Wendy: “Are living under the same roof?”
Trina: “We are working on that, we’re working on that, its a gradual process.”
Towanda’s relationship with Andre:
Wendy: “You all’s marriage is one good footing?”
Towanda: b”Well, it’s on a foot.”
Wendy: “Do you still have an open marriage?”
Towanda: “Well we have an open and front door.”
Trina: “What does that mean?”
Towanda tried to play coy, telling them they would have to just keep watching the show. But both Wendy and Trina kept pushing, asking exactly what are the rules.
Wendy: “Does Andre go out and have sexual relations with other women?”
Towanda: “I don’t know.”
Trina: “And if so, does he tell you?”
Towanda: “I have to be honest. If he does, I don’t know about it. He’s home with the kids a lot, while I’m on the road. So honestly, I don’t see how he would have time.”
Wendy: “Do you date?”
Towanda: “I don’t, I haven’t dated.”
Wendy: “But you have the rule in place just in case something walks by you that you like?”
Whether or not Tamar is going to quit BFV
Towanda: “Tamar quits every season.”
Trina: “Even when we were playing games, whenever Tamar would lose, she’d pack the game up and put it away and quit. So you know, she’s being a baby. That’s Tamar.”
