The Braxton sisters are back at it tonight on WE, in the third season premiere of their hit reality series. To mark the occasion, we thought it might be fun for you to take our quiz and find out which Braxton sister your personality type most closely resembles.
1. In which uncomfortable living situation would you be likeliest to find yourself?
a. Alone in a huge house, skeptical about marrying for love instead of for money, and occasionally entertaining “visits of convenience” from my ex.
b. Stuck in a loveless marriage, with a husband prone to straying, and worried about the effect that leaving him would have on your kids.
c. In a “domestic partnership,” following a marital separation, with an estranged househusband who’s really great with the kids.
d. Living in any one of several mansions with a busy husband whose health crises and desire to “tone down my personality” keep me a bit on edge.

e. They treat me like a black sheep, and I’m frequently the butt of their jokes.
3. What’s your definition of being supportive?

c. It means being an active listener, trying to see things from both sides, and tentatively offering my insights without overstepping my bounds.
