Per Traci, her actions at Trina’s wedding were warranted. She details what led to the blowup between her and her sisters in a new interview with DJ Richie Skye and says Tamar is to blame for agitating her.
According to Traci, she went into another room following her duet with her father in order to calm herself down. It was then that she says Tamar followed her and began to antagonize her.

“I went and sat in the back and I was on the phone with my managers and lo and behold, Tamar pulls up a chair in front of me and starts moving my hair. ‘What? What’s wrong? What did I do? What?’,” Traci alleges.
“I said ‘Get out of my face. Really Tamar? Right now? You want to do this now? At the wedding now? She kept doing it. So I grabbed Tamar’s hands out of my face and pulled her back,” she says. “Her boyfriend grabbed me and pushed me. He grabbed me and pushed me! So after that I went totally berserk. I grabbed a chair. My husband grabbed the chair from me.”

Traci’s son, Kevin Jr., and Tamar have been trading jabs on social media as the episodes air. Some fans believe Kevin should stay out of the drama between Traci and her sisters, but Traci believes otherwise.
“We have to have our mother’s back. That’s our mother. But if my son has my back, ‘Stay in a child’s place.’ He’s a grown man!” she says. “He is 25 years old, makes his own decisions, bought himself a house, bought himself a car. What I’m a tell him? You grounded? Take his house keys? Take his car keys? [laughs] Beat him? You can’t see your son and your fiancée no more? I mean, come on now.”
Traci also says she’s disappointed in some of her sisters’ reactions, mainly Towanda, who has been speaking out about her on social media. Despite such, Traci is committing to continue setting boundaries, no matter how estranged her relationship with her sisters is.
