What’s Beef? Oprah Winfrey And Toni Braxton Set To Work Together!

Published

on

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.

During an interview on CNN, the rapper explained, “Certain people feel like we should make America ‘great again,’ but that time they’re referring to always takes me back to separation and segregation, so I’d rather make America Crip again.'”

He added, “What I mean by that is, in my lifetime, that’s when young black men in impoverished areas organized to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead.”
