Thirsty Thursday: Sparkling Sad-Gria

WE are getting all in our feels this Thirsty Thursday! On Braxton Family Values, a well-deserved celebration becomes tragic when devastating news shocks all of the sisters. On Hustle & Soul, Cola hears news from Jon Jon that might change the future of their relationship. Meanwhile, Lawrence can’t handle the vision Ana has for The Pink Teacup, which leads to him making a tough choice involving Thandi. It seems like everyone needs a glass of “Sparkling Sad-Gria,” a fruity and bubbly twist on a classic sangria!
