Apart from taking home the prize, Braxton, 41, made history this Wednesday, February 13, by becoming the first-ever black housemate to win the grand prize. RadarOnline.com readers know the beauty was competing with Dina Lohan, Ricky Williams, Lolo Jones, and Kandi Burruss for the reality crown.
She also broke the “First to Enter” curse and took home $250,000, leaving runner-up Williams with $50,000.
Fans know the scores were pretty much tied until the last few episodes. Ultimately, it was Braxton’s moving speech what led viewers to throw votes her way.
“I am a huge fan of this show. I played the game to the best of my ability,” she said on the show. “I lost my job publicly in front of everybody. I lost my husband. . . And I almost lost my life.”
While season 2 has some dramatic ups and downs and bombshell reveals including Anthony Scaramucci’s reality debut, Dina Lohan’s long-distance boyfriend drama and host Julie Chen’s exit and return, nothing compared to Braxton’s emotional rollercoaster.
