As I was watching the Bethenny show today, I heard some fairly disturbing comments from none other than Toni Braxton. After she spoke on certain issues like her divorce and being a pet owner, my eyebrows were in a permanent “up” position. So, Toni starts discussing her divorce and living in LA and then tells everyone that she and her ex-husband get along and they are “very Caucasian….very white about it.” She described her divorce as a “white divorce” because they are able to still be friends. What in the world is she even talking about? Not sure that was the best way for her to describe her failed marriage to the world. Toni also describes her pet ownership as something new since white people have been doing it for years…they take their dogs hiking and running. I know plenty of black people who run with their dogs by the way…ugh, her appearance on today’s show was just really annoying and ignorant. However, what does it say about how she values the black family, especially when her entire family has a reality television show for millions to watch every week? That’s another topic for another day.
This is an amazing story of passion, struggle, fortitude and above all, endurance! No one ever said that following your dreams would be easy and Toni Braxton’s story is a perfect example of working hard for everything that you have.
