Season 1, Episode 1
“The Bermuda Triangle”
Ready to relaunch her singing career, R&B superstar Toni invites her four younger sisters to join her for a benefit concert in Bermuda. But old rivalries and resentments threaten to ruin what was meant to be a joyful family reunion.
Six time Grammy Award winning R&B superstar Toni Braxton has been out of the limelight the past few years, due to health and financial concerns. To help get her career back on track, Toni enlists the help of her four younger sisters, all of whom are performers in their own right.
Toni plans to perform at a benefit concert in Bermuda, and she invites them to accompany her. Traci, the second eldest sister, moved away ten years earlier, and misses her sisters. Middle child Towanda is Toni’s assistant, but is tired of performing that duty, and wants to get back into performing. Trina, the second youngest, is a backup singer who tends to party too hard. Tamar, the baby of the family, is married to Toni’s manager and successful record producer Vincent Herbert. She’s also sings backup, but believes she’s destined for a solo career.
Tamar and Trina get together to prepare to sing backup for Toni, and Tamar throws a fit when she learns Toni won’t be at the rehearsal. The sisters are shocked when Trina confides she was arrested for a DUI. The girls’ mother, Evelyn, watches her grandchildren while Toni and her sisters head for Bermuda. But tensions continue to mount as Traci reveals she feels left out that she won’t be performing, and Tamar feuds with Vince over his perceived unwillingness to help her with her career.
As Toni worries about how her performance will be received, Tamar and Vince separately come to her seeking her counsel, and she advises them. In spite of Toni’s fears, the concert is a success, marred only by Traci’s tears over being on the sidelines. But Towanda manages to comfort her, and she feels better having expressed her frustrations, and decides to get back into singing. The sisters plan to have a post-concert slumber party, but Toni falls asleep alone in her room. Tamar and Vince come to an understanding that he’ll make her career a higher priority. The sisters return home to Atlanta, to an exhausted Evelyn’s relief.
