VIBE: What can we expect from this upcoming season, focusing on you?
TRINA BRAXTON: Focusing on me, I’ve got a lot of surprises this season. One of which as we all know I came out with my single “Party or Go Home” but my video’s finally finished and everyone can finally see it! And they’re also gonna see me try and help Toni find new background singers.

Do we get to see your performing anything?
Just the video. And you’ll see me practicing. I promise you, I am the least choreographically skilled [sister] in my family! They always tease me about it! But I think I did pretty good for myself though.

What feedback have you been getting from your fans on your music?

So now that you’re officially divorced, do you have any plans on getting back to the dating scene, or are you just looking to focus on your career?
Well, I am not officially divorced quite yet, but I am officially separated. I am not officially, or legally, divorced.

Well that’s a good misconception to clear up.
Yeah, it’s not something that easy to delve in to, especially when you have children involved. So it’s nothing I’m going to jump into lightly. I want to exhaust all of my options, and really think it through. And let it be my choice and my decision or what people think I should do because at the end of the day, people are living their lives and I’m stuck with the decision you
