Toni Braxton & Babyface Delay New Album


In a sudden turn of events, Toni Braxton and Babyface have decided to delay their ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’ album until 2014.

Once scheduled for release on December 3rd, the album will now be released on February 4th, just in time for the Valentine’s Day gift-giving season.

Toni Braxton’s New Album Cover


Toni Braxton and Babyface’s new Love, Marriage & Divorce CD has officially gotten a cover image and new release date.

Once scheduled to be unveiled on December 3rd, the pair have now moved the release date up by a week to November 25th. They have also revealed the cover, which I have posted up top. The album title, which was rumored to undergo a name change, only got an “&” added to it, which I think is pretty sad. I believe a more upbeat title would have been a better choice.

Toni was asked about the title in a recent interview with Rollingstone and had this to say: “I think because Babyface and I have both gone through divorces, we can relate and we can collaborate together on this topic and make it so others who have gone through this situation can relate as well.”

Shoe of the Moment: Christian Louboutin Lace-Up Ankle Boots

Though I am generally not a fan of pointy toed shoes, I must say I really do love Christian Louboutin’s Mado Leather Lace-Up Ankle Boots ($1,595).

I first spotted them on Toni Braxton, who paired them with a chocolate leather sheath while attending the Walk of Fame Ceremony for producer Babyface.

The following day Ciara was seen pairing them with an Lucky Rose Sweater Dress while dining out with new friend Lily Collins.

Both women wear them well, but I admit to being a bit more partial to Toni’s look. Try as I might, I couldn’t find out who made her dress, but she is looking all kinds of fabulous in it.

Toni Braxton Writes Her Memoirs


Remember back in August when Tamar Braxton told the world she and husband Vince were working on a book together?

Well, it looks like Tamar was once again following in big sister Toni’s footsteps.

Word on the curb, and Amazon, is that Toni has finished a book herself- a memoir titled Unbreak My Heart: A Memoir.

The book is due to hit store shelves and Kindles all across the country when it is released on February 11, 2014.

I believe the date will just about coincide with the second half of season 4’s Braxton Family Values.

To date Toni has not mentioned the book, and evaded all questions thrown at her about it via social media.

However, with a new album and reality show to promote in the coming weeks, I’m sure Toni will be more forthcoming with her fans.

Toni & Babyface on the Tonight Show


The gorgeous Toni Braxton and her longtime producer Babyface hit up Jay Leno’s Tonight Show last night to perform their new Adult Contemporary hit Hurt You.

This is the pair’s first live performance of the single, which precedes their duets album Love, Marriage, Divorce, due out December 3rd November 25th.

Toni recently wrapped up the first leg of her U.S. tour and is expected to announce new dates in the coming months.

Toni says fans can expect a lot of surprises, including rumored new music from that long talked about Braxton Family project.

Skip to the 37:05 mark to see Toni and Babyface’s performance.
