Back in 1998, Toni Braxton expressed that Oprah was being “mean” to her.  Toni felt embarrassed after Oprah tackled her financial problems and at the same time inquire about her purchase of a Gucci flatware.  Toni said:

“She was so frickin’ mean to me, I was in shock. I couldn’t believe it because I loved her so much…She pretty much reprimanded me.”

“She says to me, ‘I heard you have Gucci flatware. I’m Oprah Winfrey and even I don’t have Gucci flatware.’”

But now, there’s no more beef between Toni and Oprah since Toni will be having her OWN movie.  The two made the announcement together during OWN Upfronts.  This new movie will be entitled, “My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story.”  They announced:

“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.”
