The Braxton Family Value Recap!! This particular episode was huge and for the sisters to allow the cameras to capture their toughest moments and feelings regarding their parents divorce, the other woman and how this has affected the entire family as whole was huge. They have never really discussed in detail what occurred between their parents, however last night we got more than what we expected.

Mama Evelyn finds out through grandson Logan that his Pop pop was in Mexico with Ms. Wanda. Ms. Wanda is the other woman who married their father 30 days after he divorced mama Evelyn. The sisters says their father was absent from their lives once he married Ms. Wanda and those scars still affect them today. Mama Evelyn discloses this information at breakfast with Trina and Towanda. Their father was invited on their family vacation but they didn’t know if he was actually going to bring Ms. Wanda. Mama Evelyn doesn’t feel comfortable being around them, Ms. Wanda was a friend and she attended their church, she hasn’t been able to let go of the hurt and the pain even though she really needs too but we can understand why she hasn’t. Mama Evelyn was on vacation with her daughters like she is every year and she never expected to see or even hear that her ex-husband and his wife are on the same vacation. She isn’t comfortable and she feels blindsided.

Mama Evelyn informs Trina and Towanda that she is leaving Mexico and catching a flight back home immediately. The girls try and talk her out of it but she is upset and again she wasn’t told that her ex-husband would be on this vacation which she could have dealt with but, not his wife. She leaves the girls at the table stuck, their father didn’t inform them that he was bringing his wife and Toni was supposed to break the news to their mom that there was a possibility that he may bring his wife but she decided not to open that door. Since Toni didn’t have that talk with their mom, she’s gone, Toni is shocked, she knows this was her fault but there is nothing that she can do about it.

The sisters all meet for dinner to discuss what transpired and Toni drops a bombshell at dinner, she invited thier dad and Ms. Wanda to dinner. They are all shocked, mouths wide open, they can’t believe that Toni invited them to dinner without informing them. Toni was afraid if she told them they were invited, her sisters wouldn’t show up. Toni feels like they need to talk openly with their dad and his wife, ask questions and get closure if they can. The sisters feel like they are betraying their mom by even sitting down with her and having this conversation but they all need to open the floor and discuss the issues that have been plaguing their minds so that maybe one day, Ms. Wanda can have a seat at the table with their mother.

When their dad and Ms. Wanda appear at dinner, the room was a little stuffy but big sister Toni started the ball rolling. Their father told them that Logan saw them yesterday and he whispered for him not tell his mommy that he was there with Ms. Wanda and I’m not sure why he would tell him that but he did. Tamar told her father that’s where he wrong, no Logan didn’t tell her but he told their mom. He asked if that was an issue and she informed him that there mom left Mexico, she isn’t ready to face him together with his wife. He thinks she should be over it, its been over 15 years but that’s a man for you. He doesn’t care that he damaged her heart and broke her spirit, because he was able to move on, doesn’t mean that she was able to move on. She hasn’t been married again since they divorced, he married 30 days after they divorced, so no he doesn’t care nor does he understand.

That started the ball rolling, they confronted him with their issues like, he married Ms. Wanda and disappeared, he didn’t attend Trina’s wedding but he attended Toni and Tamar’s and they needed to know why he left them when he left their mother? He says he couldn’t face his daughters because of what he did, he claims he and Evelyn’s marriage was over when he began his affair as if that still makes it right. He was still a married man when he began sneaking around with Ms. Wanda and she was aware that he was still married to Evelyn, they were both wrong. Acknowledge, own it and move on, making up excuses or reasons as to why you cheated doesn’t change the fact that you still cheated.

The sisters believed in their minds that Ms. Wanda was the reason that their father disappeared and the reason he didn’t appear at Trina’s wedding. He corrected them and this is where he went wrong, he tells them that Ms. Wanda has always encouraged him to be with his daughters and she also encouraged him to appear for Trina’s wedding but he didn’t because he was given an ultimatum. Trina didn’t want him to show up with Ms. Wanda and he felt like she was giving him orders so he decided not to attend her wedding which broke Trina’s heart. It was a decision, a choice that her father made not to attend her wedding, she began to cry, he chose to be at Toni and Tamar’s wedding but not hers. If you think about it, he chose to attend both singers wedding and not Trina’s wedding, something ain’t right with that pci. He can make up every accuse in the book, it still won’t change the fact that he wasn’t there for Trina.

Toni made Tamar explain why her dad came to her wedding, he seems to think that Tamar invited his wife, no she said he could bring a plus one just as she did with her mom but she didn’t have a plus one. Their father says he has tried to make up for his actions in the past by being there for his daughters and Tamar yelled at him, he wasn’t around when she had the blood clots and almost died. He claimed he couldn’t fly, she wasn’t buying his excuses so she left.

Until he can understand the damage he has caused his daughters, their relationship will never change. Ms. Wanda felt as if she was getting beat up, she ran from the table, Toni spoke up and she didn’t want her sisters going in at their father, he’s 70 years old and she felt that wouldn’t be right. However, they feel the way they do about him and his wife because of their mom. They are loyal to her because of what she went through after their divorce and Tamar was right there with her being the baby. She saw the pain and anguish her mom suffered and she will probably never have a relationship with Ms. Wanda because of her close relationship with her mother.
