Late last year, we reported that Traci Braxton and her husband of 17 years, Kevin Surratt were going to participate in WE tv’s “Marriage Bootcamp.”

Watching “Braxton Family Values” we could tell there was something awry with Traci’s marriage but we didn’t quite know what, aside from the whispers of infidelity and a love child. But in the trailer for the upcoming season, the couple run down their litany of issues. And though they have some serious hurdles to overcome, they still seem like they have a strong love for each other. They don’t look at one another with contempt and they’re still touchy feely.

But all that being said, they were very honest about their challenges and what they wanted/needed in their relationship. See what each of them had to say:


Kevin: There was some infidelity in our marriage. 

Traci: On both sides. I can’t blame it on just one person

We also harbor on the past a lot so we need to be here.

Everything that he does, it gets to me. I want to poke him in the eye. 


Kevin: I don’t listen 

Traci: And I just shut down and walk the hell away from him. 


Kevin: Traci shows a lot of affection to her sisters, brothers. I feel like that’s what I need and that’s what I want. 

Traci: I need more than wham bam thank you ma’am. I almost feel like a prostitute. 

We’re not each other’s best friends like we used to be. We’re not that anymore. 


Kevin: Yeah, that’s true.


Aww how sad. But watch the video below and tell me if you’re picking up the same “this can be fixed vibe” I was getting.

Do you plan to watch this season’s reality tv stars edition of “Marriage Bootcamp” when it premieres next Friday, May 30 at 9pm?
