Toni Braxton Reconciles With Oprah; Set To Star In OWN Biopic

Published: Saturday 5th Apr 2014 by Sam

The last time Toni Braxton and Oprah Winfrey‘s names hit the headlines together it was due to the singer’s intriguing account of when the mogul chastised her during her talk-show days.

Fast forward a few months and it appears all is water under the bridge. For, it has been announced that Braxton is gearing up to star in a biopic on Winfrey’s OWN Network.

Details below…

The ‘Unbreak My Heart’ belter has been tapped to play the lead in the movie adaptation of Pop star Darlene Love‘s life.

Executive produced by Morgan Neville and Love herself, ‘My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story’ serves as OWN‘s first scripted telepic.

Set to debut later this year, the film will center around Love’s long career in the music industry, chronicling her start  as the key voice behind Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound hits from the 1960’s.

The project isn’t the first time Braxton has dabbled in acting; indeed, the Grammy winner has a number of hit Broadway runs under her belt – including ‘Aida’, ‘After Midnight’, and ‘Beauty & The Beast’. The diva also starred in Lifetime’s ‘Twist Of Faith’.



So much for that retirement, ay? And thank goodness for that. Toni remains one of the industry’s most pronounced talents. As such, it’s great to see her dipping her hands in as many pies as possible. For, beyond this film, she has an upcoming memoir due next month, more music, and of course a brand new season of ‘Braxton Family Values’ set to kick off later this year.

More power to her.

    So nice of Toni to forgive Oprah. If you don’t know, Oprah was ASKED by the people who cheated Toni to make her look stupid during their interview to take the heat off themselves. That was why Oprah seemed so mean, she wanted to make it seem as if it was all Toni’s fault when in reality the same thing was happening to EVERYONE else who worked with LA Reid.
    Remember the TLC story? Ok.

      receipts though? conspiracy theories have no merit

      Umm, no boo boo ~ you tried it though. Oprah had learned (the hard way) to be a woman about her business and had little tolerance for women who didn’t manage their $$$. Oprah tried to point out to Toni that she should have kept her eye on her own bottom line by monitoring $$ that she earned vs money that she spent and perhaps not lived beyond her means.

    When will BuyYouOwnAlbumsBraxton?

    Can we please take Toni back and leave Tamar somewhere away from the gp?

    Anyway, as if Big O gave a damn if Toni Broketon was mad or not. TLC was broke because of Pebbles and LA cut, LA Face cut, taxes and that million dollar video, Plus dividing that cash by 3. So we and they know why they were broke (Left Eye broke it down to a T.)

    Now Toni was broke because of HER spending. All those shoes, dresses and mooching sisters is the reason she went broke. Usher was on that same label and he’s doing just fine. And Oprah got in dat ass on HER stage and told her like it was, that’s why I is a billionaire and Toni is a 2 times bankruptcy act.

      Usher is doing just fine because he has a personal relationship with La. I think everyone knows that.

    • Carlitos April 5, 2014

      Sit your ass down, you disgusting p**! That’s NOT why Toni went bankrupt. You’re an imbecile.

    Much better than her lazy sisters. I always wonder WHAT they were doing before Toni got them the tv show?

  7. Avi April 5, 2014

    Toni simply wasn’t watching her money. She didn’t find out she was broke until she was. Before that, she assumed that she was rolling in dough and lived accordingly. I’m pretty sure Laface gave her a s***** deal, but it sounds like she was totally oblivious to it because she was distracted by her own success. When you’re successful, you have to be mindful of every dollar coming in and going out. You can’t just work and then count your earnings afterwards. She learned that lesson the hard way.

    I can’t wait. Toni is Goddess. She is so beautiful!!

  9. toni gurl you know oprah was telling the truth April 6, 2014
