They likely meant well, but Trina Braxton said her relatives didn’t always offer the best advice when she was deciding what to do about her troubled marriage.
The “Braxton Family Values” star and her husband, Gabe Solis, recently spoke to S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown about their struggles to put their marriage back together.
Fans of the series witnessed the two dealing with infidelity, trust issues and more. Unfortunately, Trina said her family wasn’t always helpful.
Get an excerpt from the May 2013 Q&A with Trina and Gabe below.
Jamie: You don’t have to tell me who said what, but what are some of the suggestions that [your relatives offered] that didn’t work? Because I want people who are going through this to know. I just want them to learn. If you guys are out there with your lives like this; it’s not for people just to beat you up and talk about you badly.
Trina: Thank you, Auntie Jamie. But to answer your question, I think one of the horrible [pieces of advice] that my sisters gave me was to leave. I think that’s the worst advice you could give someone because, number one, you never know what you’ll do when you’re faced a situation. And number two, it’s easy to leave. It’s harder to stay and work it out. And if you feel it’s a situation worth saving the do your d@#ndest to save it. And that’s what we decided to do. And that’s what we’re gonna continue to do.
