During a recent interview with Vivica A. Fox on Fox Soul’s Out Loud With Claudia Jordan, Trina Braxton spoke on Braxton Family Values and the well being of her younger sister, Tamar Braxton who recently made headlines for attempting to commit suicide and an altercation that the singer had with her fiance David Adefeso.

Trina talked about what it was like filming during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Well, you know thank God the country is starting to open back up again. They tried to do Zoom and…,” Trina told Fox.

Trina stopped talking and began shaking her head as to say that Zoom wasn’t working for the hit reality TV show. Trina also showed off a new line of products that the singer, reality TV star, and entrepreneur just released. She launched a candle line, and hot sauce and Bourbon via her Bar Chix restaurant.

When Trina was asked how Tamar was doing. She replied,” She’s better.”

“The one thing that Tamar has asked us is to allow us to tell her own story. And we are respecting that. But I do really truly believe that when she is really truly ready to tell her story it will help someone else,” Trina said.

“It seems like people are exempt from things but I’m going to say this to anyone watching. Check on your well friends,” she continued before Fox asked her to share exactly what she meant by that.

“I’m saying just because everyone seems like they have it all together it’s never what they’re going through internally,” Trina explained before going on to say that sometimes you need to check in on your friends.

Fox then mentioned that when she saw the video that Adefeso shared online regarding the altercation with Tamar that it didn’t sit right with her.

“When homeboy put out the video,” Fox said before shaking her head. Trina also continued to look into the camera and shake her head without saying anything.

“I thought it was a lot and unnecessary and I think it’s important for me to keep my opinions to myself because it’s not going to be pleasant,” Trina said regarding what she thought of it.

Trina also said that although she and her sisters may have their own arguments when someone messes with one of their sisters they’ve messed with them all.
