Traci Braxton Explains Why Phaedra Parks Joined ‘Braxton Family Values’

As previously reported, Phaedra Parks has joined the current season of WE tv's Braxton Family Values. Now, Traci Braxton reveals why she asked the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star to join her on the WE tv hit reality series.

Braxton and Parks will go on a wild adventure as the two head to Wyoming and South Dakota to learn about the history of Black cowboys and try their hand at herding cattle. Traci revealed that said that the trip came about after she’d fallen out with her sisters.

“I was down in the dumps with my sisters…and it was one of my business ventures, my Black Cowboy Whiskey,” she told ESSENCE, referencing the whiskey brand where she’s a brand ambassador. “And I wanted to reenact being on a ranch with black cowboys.”

Meanwhile, Parks told the publication during a recent press junket that she and Braxton were “herding 1500 heifers for over 100 miles.”

“[We were] by ourselves, camping out, really learning about how cowboys survived. Learning about Stage Coach Mary, who was one of the only African-American women who participated in cattle herding, so it was really good. It was really good. I loved it,” said Parks.

The two will also be joined by Flava Flav, Tiffany “New York” Pollard, and Kym Whitley. Meanwhile, Braxton also revealed that she gathered Parks, reality Natalie Nunn, and comedian Luenell for a fun day at the spa.

“It reminded me of my sisters. It was nothing but girls there and it reminded me of my sisters because we got to laugh with each other and cry with each other,” she told ESSENCE.

Parks and Braxton’s spa day and cowboy adventure will appear in the WE tv hit show’s seventh season.
