Well, looky here! Toni Braxton has finally forgiven Oprah Winfrey for chastising her about being broke and buying Gucci flatware.
During her “Behind The Music” episode, Braxton revealed that Oprah wasn’t so kind to her during their 1998 interview. “She was so frickin’ mean to me, I was in shock,” Braxton recounted, “I couldn’t believe it because I loved her so much…She pretty much reprimanded me.” Apparently, that’s all in the past because Braxton has signed on to be the lead in Winfrey’s newest project.
After her role as Nina in the television movie, A Twist of Faith, Braxton is back on the small screen in another made for TV film. The 6-time Grammy Award winning singer is set to star as Darlene Love in the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network’s first scripted TV film, 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 December 2014.
Top Five Moments From The 2018 SAG Awards
Celebrities filled the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday night for the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards and the night was full of great moments. Here are the top highlights from the show.
It was a big night for Sterling K. Brown who made history after becoming the first Black actor to win the category for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series. Brown not only took home the award for his role on NBC’s This Is Us, but he also received a second SAG award for Best Ensemble.
Morgan Freeman was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, making a seemingly short and awkward speech. While receiving the honor, he called out an audience member for talking.
“Hey … I’m talking to you. Yeah, hey,” the 80-year-old said. “Okay, well you just stand out to me. That’s all.” Freeman then explained, “These moments in one’s life usually will call for an entire litany of thank yous.”
And we’ve said it before and we will say it again, Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash need their own show. The pair provided comedic relief yet again while announcing the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series.
When discussing who gets to announce the winner, Nash explained she gets to say Sterling’s name if he when’s because “he’s Black.” She did however explain Munn “can say anyone who is Asian who is nominated.”
