Toni Braxton

The internet is buzzing around the recent Toni Braxton interview on the talk show Bethenny. On the show singer/entertainer Toni Braxton made some stereotypical comments on why her divorce to husband Keri Lewis has been going so smooth.

According to reports by Madame Noire, the transcribe interview went as follows:

Bethenny: So on the break we were talking about you living in LA?

Toni: Yes, I am in LA and my ex-husband is there but we get along great. We are very Caucasian, very White about it.

Bethenny: You are having a very White divorce?

Toni: We are really. We did.


Bethenny: Really. Then I have a very Black divorce, no?

Toni: I got that means, I hate you Jodi, I hate you Jodi. That’s what it means to Black people. (“Baby Boy” reference)

Bethenny: Got it, so a White divorce is your are bffs, you can live next door.

Toni: Black people we kind of look and say why is that? Why don’t they hate each other?
