Toni Braxton Vying for “Orange is the New Black” Role

TONI BRAXTON WANT TO PLAY A LESBIAN ON ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

With her musical career officially back on track, singer Toni Braxton is now looking to start dabbling in acting a bit more.

Earlier this year, after appearing in the Lifetime movie “Twist of Faith,” Toni said she specifically wanted her next role to be that of a lesbian.

It appears she may be one step closer to that goal, telling the Grio in a recent interview that she was actively vying for a role on Netflix’s freshman comedy “Orange is the New Black.”

Toni had talked about her adoration of the show quite a bit, telling Billboard it was the only TV she watched besides the news and her own reality show “Braxton Family Values.”


Since un-retiring earlier this year, Toni has recorded a new duets album with Babyface, scored her first #1 R&B hit since 2000 and landed a part in the upcoming Broadway play “After Midnight.”

  1. Interesting, she wants to play a lesbian role. Her desire sends my mind racing…wondering if this isn`t a subconscious desire for women, in general.

    As far as her music goes, maybe her diehard fans will still support him.

  3. The devil is using Toni to push a lifestyle that we all know usually leads to nothing but heartache, pain and death, especially in the black community. Why would someone who grew up in a Christian home and who just did a Christian movie all of a sudden take this route? What is Toni really trying to tell us? No, I don’t think she’s gay, I do think she thinks promoting the gay agenda will help her career. But heads up Toni, you must specifically push the gay male agenda to get a career boost. Lesbians aren’t that hard up to push their lifestyle on others.

  4. Dang yall know how to ruin something. It is kind of hypocritical. I was rooting for you Toni

  5. Female singers love pandering to the gay male audience. Lawd only knows why. Do they buy music more than straight men do?
