CELEBRITY SIBLING "STARTING OVER" IN ATLANTA

Towanda Braxton, Sister of Recording Artist Toni Braxton, Graduates From Acclaimed Real-Life Daytime Drama Series

Burbank, CA � January 10, 2004 � Towanda Braxton, the sister of recording artist Toni Braxton, has graduated in triumph from STARTING OVER (syndicated, check local listings for time and station), the acclaimed real-life daytime television drama produced by Bunim-Murray Productions, creators of "The Real World" and "The Simple Life" and distributed by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution.

Towanda arrived at the STARTING OVER house at the beginning of season two which premiered September 13, 2004. Initially, her housemates had no idea that Towanda belonged to a prominent entertainment family, but the story came out when she revealed her reasons for entering the STARTING OVER house. Raised in a high-pressure household, and later, forced to live in the shadow of her famous sibling's fame, Towanda needed to overcome feelings about her family and determine how to live her life outside of her family's high expectations.

With the support of the STARTING OVER life coaches, Rhonda Britten and Iyanla Vanzant, and consulting psychologist Dr. Stan J. Katz, Towanda was able to reevaluate her life, let go of a crippling anger towards her family, and build a successful life on her own.

With her graduation behind her, Towanda has returned to the Atlanta area, and will continue working toward her dream of musical stardom. As a graduation gift from STARTING OVER, Towanda received an opportunity to perform in front of an influential music industry audience, as well as a professional makeover and photo shoot that gives her a great new look as she pursues her career.

STARTING OVER features a group of women living together in a Hollywood Hills home and striving to improve their lives. The daily one-hour, real-life drama follows a diverse and ever-changing group of women as they attempt to make extraordinary changes in their lives � all while living under the same roof.

Each woman in the STARTING OVER cast is expected to reside in the STARTING OVER house for six to twelve weeks, depending on the scope of her "project" and her rate of progress toward her goal. Those women who achieve their goals graduate in triumph. Those who falter can be asked to leave the house.

STARTING OVER is produced by Bunim-Murray Productions, the creators of the hit series "The Simple Life," "The Real World" and "Road Rules." It is distributed by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution. Jonathan Murray and Millee Taggart-Ratcliffe are Executive Producers. STARTING OVER is currently sold in more than 90% of the U.S. for its second season in national syndication.

NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution's current syndicated programming includes the first run series "Access Hollywood," "Blind Date," "The Chris Matthews Show," "The Jane Pauley Show," "The Jerry Springer Show," "The George Michael Sports Machine," "Home Delivery," "Maury," "Rebecca's Garden," "Starting Over," "The Wall Street Journal Report," "Your Total Health," and the upcoming Martha Stewart project.
