TMZ reports that WE-TV's long-running reality show "Braxton Family Values" is on hiatus over contract issues.
Towanda Braxton is based here so the show sometimes shoots in Atlanta. In fact, TMZ said the cast was scheduled to shoot here last week but only Traci Braxton showed up.
The show is in the middle of season six.
TMZ said the sisters are sitting out because they feel their stipends and pay need to be renegotiated upward with production company Magical Elves. The website said they are signed through season nine.
The show, which helped propel Tamar Braxton's career into the big leagues, has been one of the longest running celebrity family reality shows on TV, behind only the Kardarshians on E!.
I’ve heard no word from WE! TV about the situation.
