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.”
