Toni Braxton Blasts Oprah on Behind the Music


We know one person who won't be getting an Oprah Next Chapter interview.

On Toni Braxton's VH1 Behind the Music special airing tonight Toni blasts Oprah Winfrey for the 1998 interview covering her bankruptcy that Toni says changed the trajectory of her career...

Toni tells VH1,
“She was so frickin’ mean to me. I was in shock.”
“I couldn’t believe it ‘cause I loved her so much. I admired her and looked up to her and she pretty much reprimanded me.“
“She says to me, ‘I heard you have Gucci flatware. I’m Oprah Winfrey and I don’t have Gucci flatware’.
“You ain’t got Gucci flatware because you didn’t want to buy it, not because you couldn’t afford it! What do you mean?”
“And immediately she made me feel this big. That moment completely changed my career. It made people look down on me.”

So it's Oprah's fault she filed bankruptcy?

No bitch, we started looking down at you when you went from being classy to a sraight whore...You first CDwas nothing but substance amd good R&B...after that, you started fucking shit up trying to be sexy...your stupid ass was suppose to be like the new...younger/ hipper Anita Baker...and then u started fucking shit up. So you and Harpo can both take several seats..

I usually don't agree with the big O (thinks she's a huge sick up to whites/do whatever it takes kinda lady) but Ima have to say she's damn right! You were on her show because of your bankruptcy. She was simply showing you how/why you went bankrupt , and y she probably never will.

Tony thought Oprah was gonna give her monetary help (like she does the whites) O instead gave her some common sense

What about those plastic surgeries that changed the trajectory of her gotdam nose?

Toni went through a lot in her career from heart attacks on stage, lupus, child with autism, a divorce, bankruptcy, and people stealing her money. You guys don't have to be so mean. she made the money fair and square and is free to do with it whatever she pleases. I agree with Toni, who is Oprah to judge her? that was a very judgemental statement when we all knew LaFace and accountants were stealing from her. She didnt spend like crazy, she had no more than what other artists at her time had. Oprah was cold and callous, and I hate ole fatty with the fat eyelids
I hope toni has learned from this and is wiser with her money and she seems to be in a better place financially so kudos to her. God bless toni please and that lovely family of hers (except tamar)

Thank you dear lord Jesus you are worthy to be praised.

I enjoyed listening to Toni Braxton first self-titled debut album and the heat album. I usually don't watch those Behind The Music specials, but i'm going to watch this one.

I do not know anything about this woman's financial business, but we all make mistakes and i hope things have turned around for her. I also wanted to say i wish her good luck with her health problem.

We all go through storms in life some people go through more than others, but always remember that "God is with you walking you through whatever storm you are going through if you believ and trust in him".

<< Joshua 1:9 >>

New International Version...
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

but Gucci flatware doesn't make anyone go broke unless you buy a million of them, so really that's a mute point. people can spend whatever the hell they wanna spend, but they have to make 3 times as much as they spend, that's how not to go broke.

Anonymous said...

@7:40

You meant "moot point".

No, I'm not that person trying to be the the RWS grammar police, but that's important.

Bahama Jackson said...

If you have gucci flatware you probably have a lot more bullshit you don't need, so in essence that is why she's broke. These ppl who come from humble beginnings get a million dollars & HONESTLY believe that they would never be able to spend it all. Not to mention she was on the LaFace label and we all know L.A. Reid taught Pebbles (TLC's Behind the Music) everything she knows so there's probably NO end to how they screwed humble (at the time of signing) Toni Braxton.

Proverbial Snob said...

Contrary to popular belief designer items are on average better then generic brands. Some people by Gucci simply because it is better quality and not necessarily because of the 'name'. I am not rich nor have I ever been and I prefer designer and can instantly see the difference and in the process have come to realize that poor people are being duped! Because they do not have access to these designer better quality products.

I like Toni Braxton and her music, and for the 6:54 comment she was not trying to be sexy. Toni is naturally sexy. I have a very nice body so if I wear a form fitted dress and my lovely figure shines through am I trying to be sexy? NO. But I can help it if my body is shaped like Halle Berry. This reminds me of when I went to the beach and had on a bikini and my body was DYNAMITE so much so that every other person around me was intimidated. I did not go to the beach with the intention of intimidating others, I didn't realize how sick my body was until I saw the picks and said wow my body proportions are impeccable.

The Luckey Star said...

People can be quick to judge people and the things that they do when they know that if they were in those people's shoes, they would do the SAME thing. TLC spoke so candidly on how you can go broke because after all, THEY went through it to. Artists don't make much money ESP R&B artists unless you crossover or started off independently. Not to mention Toni was single handedly taking care of her family. Traci said so herself in the video so that by itself is a burden. Some people go through bankruptcies two or three times before they get it right. Some people aren't used to money. I am sure that if you came from humble beginnings (and a LARGE family) and came on to some money, you probably would indulge yourself!

ANYWAY I admire this woman, she is surviving it all! I would have checked out LONG ago. God won't give you anything you can't bare and she is a STRONG woman.

Again, I'm not trying to be the Stickler for grammar on this site. I learn stuff from the commenters on this site so I don't see the problem paying it forward.

Excuse me you deranged monkey, you don't know me. I will have fans and when I do I will be loving towards my adoring fans. All of those things you said is pure bull shit and indicative of yourself. Black women are the most jealous and disgusting vermin on the planet. If I have a nice body because of genetics what business is that of yours? The men will stare (as they always do) but only one is allowed to touch. Since you aren't the one then you need not be concerned chimp.

Toni need to GTFOHWTBS! Girl you were already bankrupt when you went on Oprah and EVERYONE knew about it, which was why you were on the show in the first place.

You were the one not paying attention to your contract and the money flow meanwhile having a no good husband who got kicked out of Mint condition and who preferred to be a deadbeat mooching off you.

I'm no stan for Oprah, but Toni don't blame the down fall of your career on her, just looking at the people in your inner circle is enough!

I'm not convinced Toni had to file bankruptcy because she was spending excessively. She was signed to Laface and all the female artist were screwed with their contracts. TLC was one of the acts. I remember watching something where Toni stated at the beginning of her career she lived in a tiny one bedroom apartment because that's all she could afford yet she was touring and performing and her CD was generating millions that she never saw. It wasn't until she settled with Laface years later that she finally got paid. Babyface and LA did her dirty.

Oprah is typically alot crueler to Black women on her show and Black men who have never done a thing to her than she is to White people who have done her dirty.She crucified Iyanla but a white guy came on her show, she promoted his book which turned out to be a total lie, and she forgave him instantly. She made him a multi millionaire overnight! She need to stop being so mean to her own and if she shows the Amy Fisher story one more time I will puke! There girl was a 16 year old kid, get the F--- over it old hags!

Anonymous said...

Why am I reading on TMZ that she frauduently transferred over 50K to her estranged husband in an effort to hide assets from creditors when she filed bankruptcy. Now the creditors are coming after the ex-husband. And Toni's response to the allegation, drum roll please.....

"All of the payments made to Lewis prior to Toni’s bankruptcy filing were appropriate transfers for reasonable and necessary personal and business expenses in the ordinary course of her business."

Girl bye! What business and personal expenses when he was sitting @ home doing absolutely NOTHING! Oh I forgot he was the babysitter and your fake wanna be manager, smh!!!


Anonymous said...

Proverbial- I agree and disagree with you when it comes to brand names and quality. Only thing the reasons you gave are the reasons I stopped buying such expensive clothes. 10 years later my clothes would still be standing strong,but i'm not the type of person to wear my clothes over and over again and most expensive pieces are what I call OBVIOUS pieces. If you wear it once a month, or once in two months it looks like you just had it on. So in the end it's a waste of money. I have the same problem with my one year old. My husband like to buy 60 plus dollar jeans, sweaters and shirts...then get mad when he only gets to wear them one time. He just had that on like 3 months ago

and a body like Halle ????? I have a body like Halle minus her big saggy tits. What is a body like Halle ? A flat stomach and no ass ??? Girl bye. I have some nice curves, flat stomach, but it's nothing to write home about to the point I feel like i'm shitting on everyone with of all people a Halle body ???

O and Oprah...she always throws her own people under the bus but she helps damage control those white folk. Oprah would make Jerry Sandusky look like a angel if given the chance.

Proverbial Snob said...

@9:10

Don't want any 'fans' but I appreciate positive feedback ;)

@9:47

There is a difference between designer and expensive. Clothes can be expensive and not designer. I am talking about designer labels. I like many white people where clothes over and over again especially jeans so I'd rather have 10 designer labels in my closet then 100 randoms in my closet.

Halle Berry has has a stunning physique. When I saw her in the orange bikini in Die Another Day I went out and bought a similar one in white (belt included). Flat stomach doesn't equal nice body a nice body is a proportioned body. Shoulders to waist to hips ratio. Halle has the exact dimensions that I have. Broad shoulders narrow waist wide hips in proportion to shoulders, hips in proportion to waist.So for example

34-26-36 is a beautiful figure because the waist to hips ratio is a match that will give the body the pear curve similar to JLO. Anyway all this talk about the bodies of women makes it appear as though I am gay and I am not so I will refrain from speaking on women.

Proverbial- You try to hard ! When you get finish you hear a lot about Halle's face but you don't hear too many people talking about her body outside of her looking nice for being over 40. I'm just saying if I was trying to brag 10 people come to mind body wise. Halle isn't the last but not a front contender. You can talk body proportions 26, 36, 36 when who's stuck on themselves to the point they know actual measurements, who's body they compare to....you don't sound gay at all. It sounds like you just make shit up to feel better about yourself. " O i'm so perfect, wear nice clothes, perfect body..." when any fool who choose to can do and so so on line...but what would be the purpose I must ask ? Sound like you are compensating for something and trying to hard. Even when you say things like " I like many white people...." girl bye and booo ! You definitely need more people !It's all in your head chile ! Get some realness about yourself. You come across as phoney as hell. I wouldn't be shocked if you actually believed the crap you type !I ain't mad at you tho. If that helps you get from A to B and keep you afloat who am I to stand in your way...carry on !

Oprah money is long and permanent. I think instead of getting offended by Oprah's comments, she should have tried to learn something from that. Always listen to someone who knows how to sucessfully manage their own money. Gucci flatware, really?? Black-folks and their fucking name brand worship.

@10:49 You are just projecting yourself! You are only validating the stereotypes of black American women. Newsflash I am not black so how would those stereotypes (which represent 98 % of black American women) fit me?

I am not and never have been a money worshiper. Customer service? LOL only if I was doing it as form of punishment! I will not disclose my past occupations because it's none of your business but I will say that it involves 'talent' and 'presentation' out of the norm and above average.


Child support? LOOOOL

Proverbial Snob = No Husband NO CHILDREN.

I was married once and that's it currently single and not looking to be with anyone. Had chances to date very popular men but declined because that was never my thing.

@10:41 When you model YOU MUST NO YOUR EXACT MEASUREMENTS THAT IS HOW I KNOW MY MEASUREMENTS that in addition to the fact that I by imported clothing (Europe) which the sizing is completely different from American clothes as most Americans are fat. and LOL because where would I be getting this from if it was made up? Would I google this stuff? THIS IS BASED ON MY ACTUAL LIFE. Hello? where else would this be coming from I can only speak on what I know. And for your information I am not bragging it just comes across that way that's why people have nicknamed me snob which I used to be embarrassed about but now I own it.

So tell me a little bit about yourselves since you all seem to be so interested in me. The lot of you are jealous of Toni and wouldn't be surprised if you were jealous of me to.

OutKast was on LaFace, around the time Stankonia came out. Andre and Big Boi seem to be doing alright. Pink was smart and got out of the urban music scene. That is why she still has a career.
Back in the Confessions era, Usher could sell out shows and tours, so he's doing just fine.

As for Toni, even before her medical problems and the autistic kid, she was spending faster than she was making money. That is the oldest recipe for going broke. I feel no sympathy for her because she does not seem smart enough to handle money or get someone trustworthy to do it for her. These musicians need something like what the actors have for SAG because on their own, they are just easy pickings for the labels.

Funny I know those measurements because they can be heard in any and every song since the 80's. I have never in my life heard a female give a different measurement. No matter the size, body type, or age a woman is going to say her measurements are 26, 36, 36. I have done a little modeling and run way and I still don't know my measurements...not saying it's odd or strange for you or anyone else knowing theirs..you still seem to be trying too hard in all you do ! Still I found measurements vary from brand to brand. I wear a different size in every brand, and every brand has a different fit...therefor me knowing my measurements does me no good until I get in those jeans and see if they fit, and so on with the next brand !Your measurements remain the same but how different brands are made and fit knowing your measurements can't save you !

Toni need to stop blaming Oprah for the downfall of her career. U have to be really humble in any career, for some reason, i don't feel like she was, cause when people r down, u will hear about people coming to work with them, but u never heard about anyone wanting to help Toni when she was down and out. that has a lot to do with how she was walking around when she had it going on. u have to be good to people. what is the saying "the same people u see on the way up, will be the same people u see on the way down". i have always like her music, but SHE make bad decisions with money.

Toni just made news this wknd for taking $53,000 out of her acct and putting it in her husband acct, to keep from paying on her bankruptcies, i guess that is Oprah fault, too.

@The Luckey Star said... The mere fact of coming from humble beginnings should make a person wiser and smarter with their money to the point to where they don't want to go back to humble beginnings.

Before TB and TLC signed their contracts with LaFace, they should have done their research the way a person would do research prior to going on a job interview. i.e. research the company of your potential employer, read the job description, prepare questions for the interview, know how much money you will make and when you get paid. Then they should have hired a lawyer to explain their contracts.

Chances are they would have avoided their financial pitfall before falling into the pit.
The smart black entertainers like Diana Ross et.al. don't go broke. Donna Summer wasn't broke when she passed. They reported her estate at $75mil.

Both of these ladies came from humble beginnings and large families where they shared their wealth.

I happen live in a $1,750,000 home drive a Bently and vaca in Paris several times a year..I'm 5' 9" weigh 127lbs and my son is the President of the United States. See how damned easy it is to lie? What you need to do, from now on, is break the Prozac in half. Or just buy a real freakin mirror and shut the hell up

Good question @ 11:36am

I remember a time when all this extreme cosmetic hung-up-on-looking-acceptable shit was reserved for white women in large part. These new age niggas are botoxin, bleachin, gettin knifed up, installing fake ass cheeks, etc.. Since when did black women need artificially-enhanced asses? My wiz even told me that these "sistas" she works with be fuckin with those spray on tans. Parents don't instill dignity and sense of self worth and beauty in their children anymore - Probably cuz they're too busy lookin for the fountain of youth they damned selves. So you have perfectly fine young women mutating their bodies for reasons that shouldn't matter..

Wow Toni really even though I think Oprah was wrong on how she said it,but Toni you have to take the blame on this one sorry. Like I always say these celebs need to go to school and take a business 101 class real talk.

Ugh Cosmetic surgery is a personal choice. There are plenty of people that get it that don't need but everyone has there reason for doing so. Sometimes perfection can be had if that one thing is fixed, nothing more nothing less. White women do it because they already have the it factor they just want to improve, doesn't mean they weren't told they aren't beautiful by their parents. Parents don't focus on beauty anyway they focus on education.

@7:43 Perhaps I can invite you to visit me in my loft for some cocktails or brunch at a local eatery? LOL NOT! See like I said if you knew me in person you would respect me and want to get to know me, but alas this is not a social networking site and black people are very rude and unapproachable.

I guess what Toni is saying is that Oprah didn't put her up on game, she put her on blast in front of the world. Hipping her to game would come about in a more private, one-on-one setting.

I am speaking from experience. Been in both situations before and Toni is right, Oprah did more embarrassing than teaching in my opinion.

And mariah is a true DIVA with expensive taste

@snob: you sure spend a lotta time on a site where the majority of visitors are black and the stories are mostly about black entertainers. Tell the truth and shame the devil. The only dates that you've ever been on have been on the Internet. You are a diagnoses paranoid schizophrenic with delusions of grandeur and require round the clock supervision. And As far as your loft and local eatery... If I want to spend time at the salvation army and take a trip to Popeyes I'll give a call. I guess if you lie long enough you really do start to believe it. You purchase that mirror yet?
