Premiere Party for Braxton Family Values
Braxton Family Values is back for a third season which will premiere tonight (March 14) on WEtv.To celebrate the launch of a new season the Braxton’s arrived on the red carpet at STK Meatpacking restaurant in New York then went off to party with a packed house of friends and fans. Divas and Dorks caught up with one of the most outspoken members of the family Tamar and her husband Vince. They were both glowing after revealing earlier in the day that they were expecting their first child. Both Tamar and Vince seemed overjoyed as they made their way through the crowd posing for pictures and accepting congratulatory handshakes and well wishes. What is Tamar looking forward to the most about being a mom? “I’m looking forward to family time with Vince.” Everyone wanted to know which one of her sisters was already going into protective auntie mode. According to Tamar that would be, “Ms. Toni Braxton, she is on team too much,” she said. Then she added, “[Toni is already] talking about my shoes.” When asked about the sex of the baby Vince said, “We don’t want to find out until it comes.” Vince shared how happy he was while showering his wife with compliments. “She is everything. She is a beautiful woman, intelligent and smart and I’m so lucky to have her as my wife.” In regards to supporting his wife and her career he said, “We’re supposed to love each other and support each other. That’s what life is about.”
Famous friends Lil’ Kim and Angela Simmons also came out to show their support. Flat screen televisions were spread throughout the venue showing clips of the Braxton’s show. Party goers took turns making silly faces in a custom photo booth. The crowd danced to a mixture of R&B hits including some crowd favorites from Toni Braxton as they sipped on signature cocktails. There were even cake pops made with ingredients inspired by each of the sisters. It’s going to be another crazy season filled with family battles, touching moments and more catch phrases from our favorite sisters. Get your life, as Tamar would say and don’t miss the first episode of the season three tonight. Season three opens with Toni, Towanda, Traci and Trina on a trip to Italy sans Tamar who is back home touring for own her spin-off show “Tamar & Vince” which will also be on WEtv as well as promoting her single “Love & War”. Discussion of her absence is not without the side-eyes and comments from her sisters who feel like Tamar may be growing apart from the family due to her recent success.

TIP 1: Take responsibility for your own happiness. Save yourself unnecessary hours of arguing by remembering this one rule: it's not up to anyone else to make you happy. Sure, you can choose to be in a relationship with this person and derive joy and happiness from it, but it's not anyone's responsibility to dig you out of a pitty-party pit every day. Remember that everyday, and you're well on your way to enjoying happy & healthier relationships into the new year.
TIP 2: Devote time to each other. Make spending time with your partner or important people in your life a priority, even if it's a little inconvenient at first. Relationships need shared experiences to grow, and you're demonstrating that nurturing yours is important to you. Trying to develop stronger working relationships, use networking opportunities and invest time in nurturing the relationship. (The same goes for interpersonal relationships as well.)
TIP 3: Develop better communication. Most people aren't born great communicators — it's something nearly everyone has to work at. Relay your expectations. If you expect your partner to do something, say it. Don't expect that he or she should read your mind, and don't rely on hints. Being clear about what you want gives your partner a fair shot at succeeding. Say "please" and "thank you." You should be able to let loose around your partner, so there's no need to worry about having impeccable manners all the time.Balancing healthy family and business relationships doesn't take holidays or vacations. Curating a variety of great relationships in your life takes time and plenty of designated efforts - but during this season of reflection, remembering to take just a few extra steps could lead you into the new year and beyond with host of healthy relationships.
