Grammy-winning singer Toni Braxton is now staring on the reality show Braxton Family Values with her sisters. On the show, the women act like entitled divas who feel like they deserve all the money in the world despite the fact that they rarely work.
Bishop T.D. Jakes, lead preacher at The Potter’s House in Dallas, Texas, had enough of this, so he decided to give the women a lecture that they will NEVER forget.
“This [toxicity] is nauseating. If you were my daughters, I would go ballistic. They’d have to cut the cameras off,” Jakes told the women in a counseling session that was aired on Thursday night’s episode. “This is a disgrace to all of the millions of people of color who idolize you, who wish their family could get out and to get along enough to get a shot like you guys — and to see you climb all the way up here and talk to each other like this. It hurts us in places beyond your family.”
“You’re spoiled. You’re flat-out spoiled,” the preacher continued, according to The Blaze. “I deal with people who have real problems — people who are losing their limbs, who need a kidney transplant — and those families go through that with more dignity than you can go through who stood on stage?”
This verbal beating left the Braxton women virtually speechless. All they could do was stare at the preacher in shock and shame.
“To see you in these fancy shoes and these nice clothes, and act like this,” he said. “How can we teach our children to respect black women if black women don’t respect black women? This has got to stop.”
