Legendary singer turned Reality TV Star Toni Braxton has squashed her beef with Oprah.
Braxton said that Winfrey was "mean" to her and that the OWN CEO even tried to embarrass her when she was a guest on her show in 1998, which led to a downfall in her career. Toni says the downfall came during the interview when Oprah brought up her financial problems, and questioned a few recent purchases of Gucci flatware and 300 count sheets, she dished:
She was so frickin’ mean to me, I was in shock. I couldn’t believe it because I loved her so much…She pretty much reprimanded me.
She says to me, ‘I heard you have Gucci flatware. I’m Oprah Winfrey and even I don’t have Gucci flatware.
Well the two have made up from the incident almost 15 years ago, and now Toni will be starring in a OWN movie. The project is called ‘My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story.’
Executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (“Twenty Feet From Stardom”), “My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story” features the story of one of the 1960’s iconic musical voices, Darlene Love. Love began cutting records for producer Phil Spector right out of high school, and went on to work with some of the greatest musical talents in history, including Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen. Whether it was the wild parties Tom Jones used to throw, how Elvis came on to her backstage at his 1968 comeback special, or her love affair with Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers, Love holds nothing back as she recalls the exciting events that make up her life. This is the dishy and dramatic story of a woman who had it all, lost it all, but never, ever refused to give up. Love will also serve as an executive producer.
My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story is set to premiere on OWN in December
