There is no word on how far along executives are in the process, but the show is slated to return next month. This will be the first without Braxton, who was fired after two seasons. The reasons the show let her go are still unconfirmed but there has been speculation that she had a bad attitude on set and got into a heated argument with the new Executive Producer.
