Toni Braxton is reminiscing about happier times in a sweet throwback just one month after her little sister Tamar Braxton allegedly tried to take her own life. The Grammy-winning singer took to social media on Thursday, August 20, and dropped a fun shot of the girls’ time away, which was filmed for their WE tv show, “Braxton Family Values.”
Interestingly enough, Tamar Braxton wrote a scathing letter to network executives prior to her suicide attempt, blaming them for pinning her family against each other and contributing to her mental health issues.
As The Blast reported, Tamar was rushed to the hospital on Thursday, July 16 after allegedly attempting to take her own life. While Tamar Braxton’s other sisters — Towanda Braxton, Trina Braxton, and Traci Braxton — addressed the scary situation on social media, Toni was the only sibling spotted rushing to Tamar’s side at the hospital.
Now, the “Unbreak My Heart” singer is sharing a bittersweet memory. Posting a shot with Tamar that was captured on camera for their reality show, Toni Braxton captioned the throwback by writing, “We had so much fun. Dreaming of being able to go on a sister trip again ? #tbt ?♀️.”

Fans immediately began dropping the singer lines about leaving the cameras behind next time. “Without the cameras so y’all can actually enjoy it,” one person wrote. “Don’t film it this time. Relax camera free,” added another. Others begged the sisters to begin filming again, saying they are missed in the spotlight.
“Come back to my tv screen please. In the most healthiest way possible ❤️❤️,” someone else commented. “We miss ya’ll so much,” replied a second.
Two weeks after Tamar’s hospitalization, she broke her silence to speak out against the stigmas of mental health.
Addressing her followers for the first time since her suicide attempt, Tamar Braxton spoke openly about her mental health struggles and revealed what pushed her almost to the point of no return.
“Mental illness is real,” Tamar Braxton wrote, “we have to normalize acknowledging it and stop associating it with shame and humiliation.” Addressing her time on the WE tv reality show, the star said, “the pain that I have experienced over the past 11 years has slowly ate away at my spirit and my mental.” She then went in on the network before thanking her fans for sticking by her side.
Tamar Braxton has remained silent ever since her post on July 31.
