Braxton had been joined by her famous sisters on Braxton Family Values, which she appeared on for its full run from 2011 to 2020.

Last year, Toni had announced that the show would return for an additional season after moving from its original network We TV to a new channel, but those plans fizzled out last month, with Traci’s sister Towanda Braxton confirm that the show was done for good last month. 

Like her sisters, Traci was also an accomplished singer who scored a modest hit with her 2014 single Last Call, which preceded her debut studio album Crash & Burn.

Although Traci was a late bloomer with her solo singing career, she wasn’t limited to a single medium.

She also worked as an actress, playing one of the top-billed roles in the 2018 movie Sinners Wanted.

More recently, she voiced the announcer on the 2020 TV movie The Christmas Lottery.
