Toni Braxton on Tyra Banks Show

Toni Braxton will be on the Trya Banks Show, Wednesday April 23rd: Here are the details! 

Malibu on the Move -- Tyra takes the talk show where no other show has gone before when she hits road and spends the hour driving around the streets of New York City in a Chevy Malibu and along the way, picks up three women who could use a lift of their own after tirelessly giving to their communities. But first, Tyra picks up Grammy-winner Toni Braxton to talk about her Las Vegas show, her driving short-comings and how she got involved with "Autism Speaks" after her son was diagnosed with the disease. The singing superstar even plays a game of "Car-a-oke" with Tyra.

Get Better Toni Braxton!

Toni Braxton is on the mend and in "good condition" following a health scare.

The 40-year-old "Un-Break My Heart" singer was admitted to Las Vegas' St. Rose Dominican Hospital for chest pains Monday night. 

The six-time Grammy winner, in Vegas headlining a five-nights-a-week show at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino, is currently listed in good condition and is expected to be released later Tuesday. 

But according to a Flamingo rep, Braxton won't be able to go on with her Revealed show right away.

"We wish Toni a quick recovery and would like her to take the time she needs to regain optimal health," 

said Don Marrandino, the resort's president . "We are looking forward to her return at the end of the week." 

The singer's agent at ICM, Mark Seigel, would not comment on Braxton's hospitalization. Though several reports have erroneously claimed that Braxton was taken to the hospital immediately after a performance, there was no Revealed scheduled for Monday. (The show is dark on Sundays and Mondays.) Hotel officials also clarified that Braxton was not at the casino at the time. 

While there hasn't been any further details released on her present ailment, Braxton has previously admitted suffering from a condition called pericarditis, an inflammation of the lining of the heart, which she was diagnosed with four years ago. 

In a January interview with Newsweek, Braxton said she periodically suffers from heart flutters and high blood pressure. 

Since her disclosure, Braxton has since been named a spokeswoman for the American Heart Association. 

Braxton's act, "Toni Braxton: Revealed," also has shows scheduled Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the vintage 720-seat Flamingo Showroom. Her two-year run at the Flamingo began in August 2006. Her run ends August 23rd. Donny and Marie Osmond take over in September.

Happy Birthday Diezel

March 31st was Diezel's birthday (Toni Braxton's youngest son.) Toni celebrated his 5th birthday in Vegas by inviting Joel Heidtman (Pictured above: Joel is one of the worlds biggest jugglers and clown entertainers) to his birthday. He had nothing but nice things to say about Toni.  


I performed for Toni Braxton at her sons 5th birthday party this
afternoon. Toni was recently on Larry King speaking about her son and
his autism.

Let me just tell you all that Toni Braxton is absolutely one of the
nicest and kindest people that I have ever met.

I really had no idea who she was, just that she was a successful
recording artist that has been performing at the Flamingo Hilton in
Las Vegas for the past few years.

I went to the gig, and moments after meeting her I told her that my
daughter had recently turned 5 and what a great age it is. Her face
lit up and she said "Did you bring her?". I answered "Well, heavens
no!" and she immediately said "Please call your wife and daughter and
have them come over. I would love to have them here for the party".

I was stunned! (Of course I didn't have them over... but the offer
was extremely nice and very, very sincere).

Toni Braxton has sold over 40 million albums, and her number-one
hit "Un-Break My Heart" is the second biggest single by a female
artist ever.

Just wanted to share about meeting a truly kind and down to earth
