In an upcoming TV teaser, Oprah Winfrey fans might be shocked to know that someone has called her ‘mean’. On an upcoming episode of VH1’s Behind the Music, 45-year-old Toni Braxton reveals a surprising account of a 1998 interview with the TV titan. If you’ll recall, Toni came on the show to discuss her financial struggles in the industry, along with her highly publicized bankruptcy. And while Toni expected Oprah to welcome her with open TV warms, she says the opposite happened.
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 flatware’…You didn’t have Gucci flatware because you didn’t wanna buy it; it’s not because you couldn’t afford it.
Peep the clip.
Some of Toni’s fans expressed their feelings about it via Twitter.
The special is scheduled to air Monday night on vH1. P.S. Are you surprised by Oprah’s comments and furthermore, is Toni being overly sensitive or were Oprah’s comments a bit on the insensitive side?
