New Toni Braxton reality show in the works

Reuters/Ints Kalnins

We’ve run across a couple of news items that suggest a new reality show starring Toni Braxton might be about to film here.

That’s assuming she doesn’t lose her home.

Exhibit A is this Associated Press article that says Braxton is about to star in a new reality show:

“Toni Braxton is the latest celebrity to open her home to reality television cameras. Braxton, the Grammy-winning singer of ‘Un-Break My Heart,’  will appear in ‘Braxton Family Values’ on the WE network starting in April. Braxton’s sisters — Traci, Towanda, Trina and Tamar — are all aspiring singers.”

(Please, oh please, let them change the name to “The Braxton Five.” That. Would.  Be. Awesome!)

Exhibit B is a Wall Street Journal report that cited bankruptcy court documents indicating Braxton was hoping to hold onto her Sugarloaf Country Club home.

“It is debtor’s hope to renegotiate a modified loan to remain in the property,” Braxton said in court papers filed in November.

Of course, she didn’t say in the documents whether she was hoping to hang onto her Sugarloaf address so she could film a reality show there. We’ll try to run down some more details.

This is most unfortunate for her to be in this circumstance. I hope she finds another way other than this reality show.

Toni’s sisters are not aspiring singers. They were in a group with Toni in the late 80’s/early 90’s called The Braxtons and from that group, Toni was discovered and encouraged to go solo.

All of you who have so much negative $hit to say about Toni probably don’t have two months rent/mortgage in your own damn bank accounts! STOP BEING SO QUICK TO JUDGE!

It’s really no different than one of us taking a job at WalMart or McDonald’s to put food on our family’s table. It’s a blow to the ego, but you gotta do what you gotta do to care for your family.

And, think about it. When one of us has extra expenses and needs cash, we take on a retail job or deliver newspapers to make up the difference. Toni’s a celebrity, and her extra expenses are gonna naturally be far greater than the average Joe’s, so she’s gonna need a bigger second job to cover them… and lemme tell you, pulling a side job at Old Navy ain’t gonna do it. So I can’t say I blame her for going the reality show route.

Jaye, have you ever heard her sisters? I never have, but I remember on VH1 Before They Were Stars or some such that she was discovered at a gas station, and seemed to have that “it” factor, so was encouraged to go solo, and that her sisters gave her their blessing. I always wondered if that was true and if they really did hardcore support her success. I hope so, and I hope this reality show works out for all of them. Isn’t one of them Toni’s twin or something, or am I mixing them up with someone else?

It is sad when people resort to prostitution for money…a reality show is no big deal. It’s just television!

Oh great. Braxton is bankrupt, this is not her first time either. She’s a leech on society. Garnish her wages and let her pay off her debts…. including Tiffany’s.

She’s a washed up hood rat who files bankruptcy after maxing out all the credit cards, time to garnish her wages and move to college park with all the other ratz. This is taking a stand, enough rewarding failure in this country, thats why we are no longer no#1. To Big to fail, cash for clunkers, bailouts for wall street, 16 & pregnent, Jersey Shores, RHWOA, Bowl games for 6-6 teams, we are a country with no morals and we now reward mediocrity. Go ahead, exploit ur self for money. In the end, you are who you are.

Let’s not knock the hustle. A legal means of income is a very good thing. No matter what our occupation or career, doesn’t each one of us give up something in exchange for gainfully employment? Go Braxtons x 4! (Toni, Just Whip Your Hair and press forward, sister).

@kbass and A

Great entries! Assuming her show will be fairly clean-cut, I hope she makes some serious money off the show!! I seriously pray that with this money, her debts will be taken care of and the rest will be well invested to take care of her family. I usually don’t keep up with secular music performers and their trials, but in this case I might keep up a little bit just to see if she makes!

Why waste the money on another broke Atlanta winner when she would be a great addition to the Real house hoes of Atlanta. She would fit right in.

You all know you can file bankruptcy more than once in your life right? Clark Howard has…3 times I believe…and he’s white…hmmm. Let’s not be so quick to judge a persons financial circurmstances. Most of us are 1 paycheck short of homelessness

I remember Larry King saying that he filed for bankrupcy not once, not twice, but three times. I didn’t see any of you cry about that. Bankrupcy is a legal financial tool available to people and corporations. Your “so called” tax dollars are not involved, the creditors are the ones holding the bag in any bankrupcy. BTW, why is it that the people who pay the least in taxes, like low budget klansmen in Georgia, are always the one to complain loudly about tax dollars when they are the real free loaders that are ridding on everybody’s shoulders.

Hank Dude I agree. It’s these low wage earning, lower middle class, under 50,000 a year people always screaming how people are living off their tax dollars. Too funny. I could go on, but I digress. After declaring bankruptcy for the the 2nd time she still have more than most of you.

Well she is still one foxy sister inspite of all the hate on here. Go on Toni and do what you got to do. The business owners do it all the time and no one has a problem. I’ll watch her show. And sometimes I watch the Atlanta housewives. I am glad they are getting paid. Most of the goobers posting the hate on here are just jealous of them fine sisters.

I understand that Toni has had a bunch of medical bills over the years, between her heart issues (which is why she had to stop performing in Vegas), and her autistic son. And the dude she married, some guy from some R&B group, wasn’t contributing much to the pot. So I definitely have some sympathy for her situation.

Go to credit counseling and learn how to manage your money, it is unfortunate that so many famous people end up broke after making millions of dollars. Your problem is a lack of control, take the advice of Opra and Bill Cosby, count your own money then you know what you have to live on. Stop spending money if you are not working to bring money in, live within your means, plain and simple.
