Grammy-winner Toni Braxton and her sisters Traci, Towanda, Trina and Tamar took on reality TV and scored a major hit with WEtv's "Braxton Family Values." Their family drama even spawned a successful spin-off, "Tamar and Vince." Now there's buzz that the Braxton sisters have set their sights on the daytime syndication talk show game.

"Toni, Traci, Towanda and Trina are all in L.A .right now, pitching a talk show," a Los Angeles TV executive told Huffington Post last week. "Think 'The View' but with a lot of sass! There will be the Braxton sisters' version of 'Hot Topics,' called 'Spill the T,' plus gossip, relationships, fashion, makeover segments and celebrity guests. They have even gotten their mom to do an 'Ask Mommy' advice segment. A fun, fun show."


"Toni is totally into it, as is the rest of the family," a Braxton family friend added. "They have somehow managed to secure Rob Dauber, a veteran of 'The Rosie Show,' 'Oprah' and 'The Wendy Williams Show,' to be executive producer and make them the next daytime hit. Plus, you know they are going to have one hell of a theme song!"

If the new talk show comes together, the Braxton sisters will be competing in a seriously congested scene. With fledgling talkers "Katie," "The Steve Harvey Show," "The Jeff Probst Show," "Ricki Lake," "Marie" and "Trisha" hoping to get re-upped for 2013-2014, next fall is already shaping up to be another busy launch season in daytime. Bethenny Frankel and Queen Latifah are set to premiere new talkers, chefs Bobby Flay and Giada de Laurentiis have one in the works and buzz has "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" mom Kris Jenner eying a summer trial run, which is how Frankel and Wendy Williams launched their daytime talk shows.

 

The Braxtons' talk show would be unique in being the only new contender that is not centered around a single star. As on "The View," "The Talk" and "The Chew," this talk show would be a group effort. It's also, of course, a family affair.

With the likes of what kind of demographic is home during the day to watch this trash, it would probably be well-received.  So not only am I working so my tax dollars can pay them to laze around at home on welfare, it pays them to laze around at home on welfare and watch this garbage.  Disgusting bunch of trash.   Void of any real value, intelligence, or educational value - just a lot of noise.  If I want to hear that, I'll go out into the garage and run the grinder.

just what we need more crap on TV. The only reality on TV is sports the rest of the shows are fake and if you don't believe that try to act normal with a camera in your face. The true anti-christ are realty show producers. They will try to make something out of nothing.

Sassy? Is that the new word for skank. These sisters couldn't shut up long enough to let their guests speak.
