Towanda Braxton Explains Why She Threw Shade At Tamar’s Husband


Just last week Braxton Family Values sister Towanda Braxton dissed Tamar’s husand, Vince Herbert, on Twitter and now she has responded saying her comment “was 100% out of character.”

In case you missed it, Tamar and Towanda have had quite a bumpy relationship this season on Braxton Family Values. Many people are saying that Towanda is jealous of her sister’s success and took to Twitter to express it during last week’s episode.

Towanda endured the Twitter bashes for a little while, but there was one particular comment that got under her skin.

One fan wrote:


And that’s when Towanda had enough and clapped back and threw shade directly at Tamar’s husband:



Obviously she received even more backlash after making such a negative comment about her own sister’s husband. Now, in an interview with Bossip, Towanda has said that she knows her comments were wrong, but she only made them because Tamartians were making hurtful comments about her kids.

“I take a lot. I have tough skin and usually I laugh things off. I just have to admit that a lot of the Tamartians, most of them are extremely disrespectful and I didn’t care that they were attacking me, I didn’t care that they were attacking Andre, what I cared about was when they started attacking my kids,” she explained.  “They said ‘I wish Towanda’s kids got raped and run over by a bus.’ See people didn’t see that stuff. They just saw what I wrote. So after that I have to say that was 100% out of character for Towanda to respond, but I wasn’t thinking about what was right and what was wrong at that moment I was just reacting and responding.”

Towanda shared that Tamar “was pissed! Rightfully so,” but defends herself by saying she did not tell the family business like many people accused her of doing.

“…a lot of people are like ‘Towanda, you just blasted the family business!’ I didn’t tell family business. That was already on the web. This was public knowledge before I said anything ladies and gentlemen. I didn’t divulge any secrets of the Braxton family. I don’t do that.”
