'Braxton Family Values'

Media Event Cancelled

after Cast Member Hospitalized

10/27/2011 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vince Herbert and Toni Braxton
Toni Braxton and her family had to put the kibosh on a major media event to promote their reality show in L.A. this week ... because the gang decided it was more important to be with a family member who's hospitalized across the county.

TMZ has learned ... more than 30 media outlets were scheduled to attend an event at Boa Steakhouse tonight to kick off the new season of "Braxton Family Values."

But plans changed when Toni's brother-in-law, Vince Herbert, was rushed to a NY hospital Sunday to be treated for a blood clot in his lungs ... and the family decided it was more important to be with him.

Sources close to Vince -- who's a regular on the show -- tell us he's in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery.

A rep for the show tells us ... the Braxtons plan to reschedule the event as soon as they feel comfortable leaving Vince's bedside.

They made the right call. Family values sounds like a good name for their show. I have never seen it though, so I could be wrong! :) I wish a speedy recovery for him.

Well its good to see that even though they are filming a reality show they recognize that the health of a family member does come before any press events. Hope he gets better soon. :)

The producers probably advised the family that the whole thing would play better if they all went to the bil's bedside.
I believe NOTHING when it comes to the sincerity of reality show participants.

I have never seen the show, but dealing with a family medical emergency is much more important than any PR for a reality show.

Vince is Tamar, Toni's sister, husband and ex-manager of Toni and Lady GaGa. I wish him well.
