A Read: Iyanla Vanzant Unlocks The Braxtons' Biggest Family Issue

It all went down during the explosive season finale.

Published September 28, 2018

Iyanla Vanzant boldly clashed with the Braxton family during the heavily teased season finale of their WEtv reality series, Braxton Family Values. However, before everything went left, the infamous life coach unlocked what she dubbed to be the family's overarching pattern: miscommunication.

In a family therapy session with the Fix My Life hostess, the Braxtons found themselves in a vulnerable state after Vanzant called them out for not telling the truth to one another in times where it was necessary.

"Let me just talk about communication," she told the group. "I don't get a sense that you always express what you want to say, that you don't ask for what you need and then get mad when you don't get it."

After all of the ladies and their parents agreed with her assessment, Towanda Braxton shared a moment regarding their parents' divorce that left them all scarred since childhood — a moment they seemingly had not openly discussed until the filming of this segment.

Take a look, below:

Part two of the Braxton Family Values finale airs next Thursday.
