Bishop T.D. Jakes’ intervention last year during an episode of WE tv’s Braxton Family Values turned into a tough love session.

The mega pastor, who went off on Toni, Trina, Traci, Towanda, and Tamar, calling them “flat-out spoiled,” is receiving a big “thank you” from the family matriarch more than a year later.

“Did I ever thank you?” asked Evelyn Braxton during the WE tv reality family’s Monday appearance on the nationally syndicated T.D. Jakes Show.

“I’ll take it now,” replied the Potter’s House of Dallas pastor, who previously told the Braxtons their constant mean-spirited bickering was unacceptable.

“This toxicity is nauseating. If you were my daughters, I would go ballistic. They’d have to cut the cameras off,” he said.

As the siblings sat looking stunned in the July episode, along with their parents, Rev. Michael Braxton Sr. and Evelyn, Jakes continued chiding them for their on-camera verbal wars.

“This is a disgrace to all the millions of people of color who idolize you, who wish that their family could get out of the ghetto long enough to get a shot like you got,” he said.

Looking angry and disgusted, Jakes added, “And to see you climb all the way up here and talk to each other like this, it hurts us in places beyond your family. You’re spoiled! You’re flat-out spoiled.”

Instead of being offended and defensive, the family agreed with the leader’s no-holds-barred assessment and are still feeling the positive impact of listening to and heeding the much-needed disciplinary advice.

“Look at God!” said Evelyn, 68, rejoicing over the transformation she has seen in her argument-prone daughters
