Evelyn Braxton, the mother of the famed Braxton quintet who appears on the series “Braxton Family Values,” is opening up on the WE tv reality television series about seeing angels after suffering from a stroke.
On the season premiere of the show that aired Thursday, Evelyn, 68, told her youngest Grammy nominated daughter, Tamar, that she saw supernatural beings when she endured a stroke. As a result, Evelyn spoke about throwing a party centered around the theme of the devil being a liar.
“I’ve had experiences with God but this is a place that I’ve never been. So I want to celebrate, have a party and call the devil a liar,” she told Tamar. “I want a cake [saying] ‘the devil is a liar;’ hats ‘the devil is a liar …’”
The season premiere of the show centered around Evelyn’ five daughters worrying about the matriarch’s well being. For Tamar, the thought of her mother seeing angels was unsettling.
“When I was a younger kid she always used to talk about angels but they always went away,” the 38-year-old singer recalled during a confessional style moment of the show. “In the church, angels. … I don’t want to say too much out of my mouth. I’m superstitious … and saved.”
“Both of my parents at one time were pastors of their own churches and I learned a lot from that but not until I was an adult did I understand it and know for myself,” Tamar told Flaunt Magazine. “That’s what changed things for me. That’s where accepting myself comes in. There’s no way I can fake the funk. If you do it, how long can you do it for?”
It was this faith that helped “The Real” talk show host further her career in music.
“I had to be really strong in my faith and I know if it wasn’t for God, I would not be here,” she said in an interview with Ebony magazine in 2013.
