Toni Braxton Opens Up About Bankruptcy


In a recent interview Toni Braxton opens up about what drove her into bankruptcy for the second time...

Toni tells 20/20 she has a nasty housewares habit,
"I love dishes and house things so I kind of lost it a little bit on housewares. Plates, Faberge...that kind of stuff, girly stuff. 1000 count sheets. That's what I indulged in."

Toni, shut the hell up. I am sick of hearing about her bankruptcy when over half of America is financially suffering from this crappy economy.

I love Toni as an artist but after watching her on the show being shallow and stank towards her sister Traci and hearing these bootleg interviews about her bankruptcy and dishware, she lost some cool points with me.

Toni, like the rest of these Black Hollywood celebs, need to stop living above their means! What is it about African-Americans and not knowing how to properly invest money?

Well, I respect the fact that she is owning the situation and not blaming anybody else for her misfortune.

Now she (rightfully) went in on Oprah for trying to come for her for buying Gucci flatware; but that was in the beginning when Toni was navie about the music world and the contracts. But she supposed to know better now!!!!! I thought she was going to say the sane thing like her doctor's bills but FABERGE EGGS??? C'mon now, it's just you, Denim and Deizel (sp?). You don't need THAT much silver ware!!

Girl bye!! I would say she needs to ask Tamar and Vince for a loan, but they already know they won't get it back!!! Toni stop living like you still making hits and winning Grammies, and get yourself a condo and stop being a burden on the tax payers w your non bill payin self!

Girl, bye! Just say you fucked up the money Toni! I mean.....you went broke twice! The first time you didn't get it right? Now you claim the first time you went broke, it was due to shady contracts. I don't know how shady contracts, made you buy Gucci flatware, but ok. That is why Oprah got in your ass right? That got you emotional even 12 yrs after the fact on behind the music. So now after all that bitching you prove Oprah not only right, but made yourself you look all dumb ass hell to say "I blew my money on fancy Martha Stewart shit".Giiiiirrrllll....just keep it 1000 and say you was spending more money than you was making.

Toni needs to buy a small house so she doesn't have any space for all this stuff. Then only buy a few things that are really nice.

Living above her means is why she is BROKE, plus her husband ain't got no money.

SHE STILL LIVING ABOVE HER MEANS.

Not like she was running a restaurant or a bed and breakfast. What she need all those damned dishes for?

They really need to start teaching personal finance classes in HIGH SCHOOL. Although, Toni's problems were mostly due to lack of common sense.
