Singer Toni Braxton Lands cable reality show on WE
By Marisa Guthrie
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - R&B singer Toni Braxton is the latest former music star to get a reality show.
Cable network WE tv will follow Braxton, her mom and her four sisters (all aspiring singers, natch) in "Braxton Family Values."
The first of ten episodes bows April 12.
The female-targeted net will also bow its own version of "Cake Boss," a popular show on rival U.S. network TLC that kick-started the bake shop reality trend.
"Staten Island Cakes" follows 21-year-old Vinny Buzzetta, the colorful proprietor of the family-run The Cake Artist. The docuseries premieres June 21.
"WE tv's programing showcases the wild ride of relationships during life's defining moments," Kim Martin, president and general manager, WE tv and Wedding Central, said in a statement.
Additionally, the network announced a refreshed tagline: Life as WE Know It.
"As women, we share a connection and a sense of community based on similar life experiences and situations," explained Martin. "It's that particular point of view that defines 'life as WE know it.'"
