    Braxtons talk ‘Values’

    The Braxton girls are talking about what makes their hit reality show "Braxton Family Values" so very special.

    In Towanda’s opinion, fans have formed a bond with the Braxtons because they are so relatable and real. "I think that there’s a Braxton girl in everyone," Towanda told My Fox Atlanta. "Even if it’s your friend, your sister, your aunt or mother, there’s a Braxton girl in everybody."

    Trina feels that "Braxton Family Values" offers viewers more than just an idle distraction; there’s something to be learned.

    "We didn’t want to just bring entertainment, we wanted to bring family relationships. Something that people could relate to in real life," Trina said. "We also wanted to bring the values that were instilled in us from our upbringing."

    Among the values Trina mentioned is that the Braxton sisters might bicker, but it will never come to blows. "One thing you will never see is physical fighting. My mom was very particular about that. She didn’t teach us to do that. She said, ‘Use your words.’" Teasers for "Braxton Family Values" show that those words almost get Tamar, who just got her own record deal, slapped by her mama Evelyn.

    See what else they had to say, including an update on Toni, when you watch the video below.

    Whitney Houston gets ready to Sparkle

    Although it’s been reported that Whitney will be cast in the upcoming Sparkle remake, the iconic singer hasn’t said much about it until now.

    It seems she’s as excited to be part of the production as her co-stars and the movie’s fans.

    "Sparkle is a movie I have wanted to remake for a long time and I am so glad to finally see my wish come true and to be part of this stellar team of actors and producers,” she said in a statement.

    There’s still no confirmation that Whitney will be recast as Savannah Jackson in Getting to Happy, the upcoming sequel to Waiting to Exhale, but with her appearance in Sparkle, there’s some hope that her big-screen return won’t be limited to just one film.
