Toni Braxton Talks Family Beef, Dating her Ex-Husband and Caucasian MenFri, Nov 25, 2011
‚ÄúI'm a little disappointed about what's on the blogs, and people thinking that I don't want to help my sisters, or that I want to make them perpetual backup singers,‚ÄĚ Braxton told Essence. ‚ÄúPeople have to remember that this is a reality show and some things are done for entertainment. I love my family, I'll do anything for them. It makes me not want to do reality show anymore because I wouldn't want anyone to look at my family and me in a negative light.‚ÄĚ
As far as missing promotional dates for the new season Braxton adds: ‚ÄúBecause I was sick. I don't want to have to always tell people I'm sick because then they'll relate it to Lupus. I had a terrible flu, but I still did ‚ÄėThe Wendy Williams Show.‚Äô After that I had to go to Russia. So that was the situation -- I wasn't feeling well.‚ÄĚ
Braxton also touched on her relationship with ex-husband Keri Lewis, saying they went on a few dates but also says she‚Äôs been dating a snowflake.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôve gone out on a few dates, I‚Äôm not gonna deny that,‚ÄĚ Braxton says about her ex-husband. When you have kids with a person, and you really love a person, but you realize that being together is not an option right now... In the end, we definitely still love each other, and we go on dates. He‚Äôs a great dad, a great friend, very sexy, we‚Äôre doing good. It‚Äôs difficult to talk about it though.‚ÄĚ
We‚Äôre sure Lewis isn‚Äôt too happy with his ex-wife dating other men and Braxton has made it clear that she‚Äôs been stepping out, insisting she‚Äôs been dating a ‚ÄúCaucasian guy.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI went on a few dates with a Caucasian guy, super nice, super cute, super sexy,‚ÄĚ says Braxton. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôve just been on a few dates, he‚Äôs not my man, we‚Äôre not gonna get married. I‚Äôm just trying something different. He‚Äôs yummy. Who knew vanilla tasted so good? I would definitely date another Caucasian guy.‚ÄĚ
