Toni Braxton is the latest celebrity to open her home to reality television cameras.

The 43-year-old Grammy-winning singer of “Un-Break My Heart” and “You’re Makin’ Me High” will appear in “Braxton Family Values” on the WE network starting in April. Braxton’s sisters — Traci, Towanda, Trina andTamar — are all aspiring singers.

The WE network appeals chiefly to women, and with Oprah Winfrey’s new OWN network going on the air last weekend, it is looking to sharpen its focus for viewers. The network says it will emphasize programs that feature families.

WE executives said they will also renew the series “Downsized,” about a family struggling through tough economic ties. “Staten Island Cakes” will debut this summer; the show is about a 21-year-old baker whose mother and sister work for him.
