Towanda Braxton is engaged, according to folks close to the Braxton family. Towanda has been dating a man for almost a year, and rumor has it that Towanda's boyfriend popped the question.
Towanda's man is a private businessman, who does NOT like the spotlight. He has specifically told her NOT to include him on any of her reality tv ventures.
But their private relationship appears to have worked - and the two are ready to take a new step in their relationship.
Toward was wearing a HUGE engagement ring earlier this week at the premiere of the Growing Up Hip Hop party in Atlanta.
Toni, Traci, Towanda, Trina, and Tamar Braxton signed their first record deal with Arista Records in 1989. In 1990, they released their first single, “Good Life”. It would be their only single as a fivesome. “Good Life” was not a hit, peaking at No. 79 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart. At the time of the single’s release, the members’ age differences created a problem with marketing. Subsequently, The Braxtons were dropped from Arista Records.
In 1991, during a showcase with Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, who were in the process of forming LaFace Records, Toni Braxton, minus her four sisters, was chosen and signed as the label’s first female solo artist. At the time, the remaining members were told that LaFace was not looking for another girl group since it had just signed TLC.
