Toni Braxton Mulls Over Playboy Offer

Toni Braxton is the latest celebrity to land her own reality series. The 43 year old “Unbreak My Heart” singer will debut “Braxton Family Values” via the “WE” network on April 12th. The show will center around Toni, as she attempts to get her career back on track, while being a single mom to two small children, including her son Denham who has Autism. And in recently tweeting the news of her new series, Toni also revealed that she was finally considering taking Playboy up on their cover offer. Toni said the skin mag had asked her twice previously and that she might consider the offer this time, if it involved being featured with Hugh Hefner, whom she called the sexiest man she knows over 30.

  1. She needs the money…if mentionings of ‘bankruptcy’ are true.

    Surely there are other ways???

    Keep mulling, Toni. You can do better; you can BE better.

    🙁

  2. @KANYADE:

    I co-sign with you whole heartedly. Hopefully she won`t cheapen or sell herself short. Speaking as a Brotha, it`s long gotten old to see sistas prostituting themselves for massa.

    Michael Jackson and The “GOLDEN” 80s 4ever!!! Long live The “MASTER SHOWMAN”.

    Peace, in the spirit of my “Hero” Brotha Malcolm X and all of The great “FREEDOM FIGHTERS”, Patrice Lumumba, Touissant L’ Overture, Fred Hamptom and The Black Panthers, Che of Cuba, The Mau Mau, etc.

  3. She needs money. It’s tough when you really need money and you have little kids to raise.

  4. 1st- how do you know she’s broke?, did she come out and say she was broke? as far as I know TB hasn’t made an official statement.

    2nd- Toni Braxton has always been provocative as far as her image is concerned. Before JLO. she came out with the white Versace dress, she had two male dancers , kissing and dancing together on stage. And her overall image has always been sexy, so why are people surprise? why try to analyze why she’s doing something? she may feel to be a mother of 2 and over 40, having a heart condition, having to deal with the challenges of raising a boy with autism; she wants to feel sexy and get attention for her body. Or maybe she’s bohemian and could careless what people think. I’m not hating on Toni, because as a christian, we can’t judge. But, Toni is a bad chick, and men find her sexy.

  5. Even if Playboy does pay her, it won’t be much. I mean how much value do you think they are going to place on a 43 year old aging diva?

  6. Toni shed her dignity years ago with the first appearance in Playboy. Her consideration of Playboy now is just another day of business to her at this point. I lost respect for her after the second or third cd. And, she that about the time, she began the dissent to the D-list. One would hope that she would consider her age and her role as mother, but thats all a wash nowadays with celebs selling their soul left and right to pay for the next luxury item to fall further indebt with. SMDH! I won’t hitch my dollars to anything else she does. I don’t spend money on trash.

  7. As broke as she is right now, I think she should do it. Im sorry. Im sure they are offering her a very nice amount to pose.

  8. Toni never said she was doing a pictorial- only that she was asked to pose for the cover. Quite a few celebs have done covers only.

  9. BOHWE- How do we know she is broke? Cause she just filed for bankruptcy in October claiming owing between 10-50mil to various creditors.

  10. No problem Toni do it your a legend BUT all those other young s*utty singers are tramps and w*ores when I see them on the stage in a sexy dress.smh

  11. blacks nowadays label everybody and their mama a legend. please don’t take offense to this,but like Anita Baker; Toni Braxton isn’t a legend. Maybe in the chitlin circut, but mainstream media and audience don’t consider her a legend. How many records have she sold? You are a legend when you are Janet, Diana Ross, Whitney. Toni is your average r and b singer always have been.Sorry. Noone in the music industry right now can be call a legend only popular. it’s a big difference. ICon and LEgend should only be given to those artists who paved the way for others.

  12. @bohwe

    Well I guess you are wrong about Anita Baker because she helped pave the way for throaty singers like mary j blige ( mary hersrlf admitted this on the soul train awards) and even la reid and babyface admitted toni was a younger version of Anita. Please get your information together before you start talking out the side of your neck.

  13. FYI PEOPLE…

    BANKRUPTCY DOES NOT SPELL BROKE. A LOT OF PEOPLE FILE BANRUPTCY TO PROTECT WHATEVER MONEY THEY DO HAVE.

    I LIVE IN MICHGAN AND HERE MOST BLACK PEOPLE WITH A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY WORKED IN THE GM POWER PLANTS OR FOR DELPHI. INCLUDING MY FATHER, AUNT, UNCLE(S)! ALL OF THEM HAD NICE HOMES, CARS, VACATIONED WHENEVER THEY WANTED AND MOST OF THEM LIVED BEYOND THEIR MEANS. HELL MY DADDY FILED FOR BANKRUPCTY SEVERAL TIMES AND STILL OWNS HIS HOME, CARS, MONEY ETC!!! THEY JUST FILE IN SUCH A WAY THAT THOSE ASSETS CAN BE PROTECTED. THERE ARE DIFFERENT CHAPTERS OF BANKRUPTCY DO YOUR RESEARCH.

    DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE BROKE THEY’RE JUST BAD A MONEY MANAGEMENT.
    THEY DONT WANT TO PAY BACK THE DEBT THEY’VE RACKED UP!! NOT BROKE BUT VERY IRRESPONSIBLE!!

  14. PS

    I DIDN’T MEAN TO POINT OUT JUST BLACKS BUT MOST MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE IN MICHIGAN PERIOD! WITHOUT MUCH OF AN EDUCATION MADE MONEY FROM WORKING FOR THE PLANTS!!

    WHEN THE PLANTS BANKRUPTED AND FORCED PEOPLE OUT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER A LOT OF THINGS CHANGED IN MICHGAN. SMALL BUSINESSES CLOSED, THE MARKET OF EVERYTHING WENT DOWN A WHOLE LOT!! WHAT DID PEOPLE DO TO SAVE WHAT THEY DID HAVE?? FILED BANRUPTCY!!

  15. Ok, paved the way in a huge way. i will talk out the side of my mouth, because a legend a icon is someone that has the record sells that place them above everyone else. MJ sold over 1 billion records, Janet and Whitney sold over 150 million. Diana Ross over 100 million records. Anita Baker and Toni Braxton sells aren’t nearly that much. Sorry.

    I like Toni Braxton and Anita Baker work, but I realized that it is insulting to the real legends and icons to lump any and everybody with them. God forbid Toni Braxton and Janet Jackson die, do you honestly think, Toni Braxton will receive the same amount of media coverage and fanfare as Janet? Do you think that her record sells will suddenly be comparable to Janet? And Anita Baker, outside of the black community, who talks about Anita Baker? And if Anita Baker and Toni are legends than shouldn’t we give the title to Sade, since alot of people are influenced by her.

  16. Bankruptcy doesn’t mean “to protect what you have”. I hope you know that when you file for bankruptcy, the trustee will sell everything you have to pay the creditors. The debt that can’t be paid will be forgiven in the bankruptcy. Hiding assets during bankruptcy filing is a felony.

    To Summer Raine- So owing 50million dollars to people and being unable to pay them doesn’t mean broke?

  17. SUMMER-RAINE- You are completely correct! There are different chapters and if ya’ll think for one minute this woman (and ALMOST every other celeb who has problems with the IRS) is broke then your wrong. They just handled their money poorly but they are not broke. For instance Donald Trump went bankrupt how many times?? To them (multi-millionaires) that going broke but to us that’s still millions upon millions of dollars.

    BOHWE- Selling alot of records doesn’t make you a legend. It helps but there’s many other things that you have to do as well.

  18. @summerraine..

    Toni hasn’t paid her bills so I think she on broke, Again. The last time she file bankruptcy she went on Oprah and told why and it’s the same here. She broke and owe money..
