When fans of ”Braxton Family Values” last saw Towanda Braxton, she and her husband Andre Carter had decided to take a break from their marriage.
After facing an eviction from the home they shared, the family ended up staying with big sister, Toni.
Season 2 finds Towanda in the same situation, just in a different locale.
Now, she and Andre are living with Trina.
“As you knew from season 1, Gabe and I, we were already in a very, very tumultuous point in our relationship. So, when you have the addition of four other people living in your house, it makes an already stressful situation even more stressful,” Trina said, hinting at continued problems in her own marriage.
While it makes perfect sense that Towanda and her children would move in with one of her sisters until she finds her footing, on “The Wendy Williams Show” Wednesday, the talk-show host wondered why Towanda didn’t “leave the man at the curb,” especially considering that Towanda and Andre are now in an open marriage.
Towanda, who considers herself separated from Andre, didn’t have much to say about the state of her marriage, but she did seem to agree with Wendy that open marriages don’t work.
How does mama Evelyn feel about the arrangement?
“I think he’s a great dad ‘cause he’s always there with the kids whenever she travels,” Evelyn said diplomatically.
While Towanda didn’t share whether she’s been dating, Evelyn seems to have dipped her toe into the cougar waters.
Her youngest daughter, Tamar, is 34 years old, but that didn’t stop Evelyn from going out with a 27-year-old.
“He was 27, but 12 with milk just skeeting out of his ears. He had his umbilical cord on and all of that. I wanted to order him a high chair,” she joked.
Fans can see more of the Braxtons below and on the season premiere, tonight at 9 p.m. EST on WE tv.

What do you think? Should Towanda have allowed Andre to move into Trina’s house, or should she have left him "at the curb"? Leave your comments.
