Toni Braxton is next up on VH1’s “Behind the Music” special, beginning Oct 29, 10/9 ET/PT.

 

Besides her interaction with the former queen of daytime, Braxton gets vulnerable about her financial troubles and health issues.

 

While a world of fans are awaiting its premiere, a few details were thrown out there, including one where the singer says Oprah was mean to her.

 

In a preview clip of the show, Braxton says, “She was so frickin’ mean to me, I was in shock. She said, ‘I hear you have Gucci flatware; I’m Oprah Winfrey and I don’t have Gucci flatwareÉ’ You didn’t have Gucci flatware because you didn’t wanna buy it; it’s not because you couldn’t afford it.”

 

It’s kind of funny, you have to admit.

“She made me feel this big,” Braxton added, squeezing her thumb and forefinger together.

 

Adding to the R&B diva’s problems, according to TMZ, is the latest accusation that Braxton wire transfered more than $50,000 into her estranged husband’s bank account to keep from paying off her bankruptcy debt.

 

Musician Keri Lewis — who separated from his wife of a decade in 2009 — supposedly received the money just before Braxton’s 2010 bankruptcy filing. The bankruptcy trustees are currently suing Lewis in order to recover the $53,490 sum, which they posit the singer transferred in order to avoid having to use it to pay back her creditors.

 

Two years ago, Braxton was allegedly somewhere between $10 million and $50 million in debt, prompting her to file bankruptcy.

 

A rep for the “Unbreak My Heart” crooner, 45, denies any wrongdoing on her part.

 

“All of the payments made to Lewis prior to Toni’s bankruptcy filing were appropriate transfers for reasonable and necessary personal and business expenses in the ordinary course of her business,” her rep told TMZ, adding that Braxton is happy to provide whatever information necessary in order to clear her and her spouse’s names.
