Longtime Toni Braxton fans are anticipating the Lifetime premiere of her biopic, Unbreak My Heart. Even with a booming reality show alongside her four singing sisters, The Braxton Family Values merely skims the surface of trials and tribulations of Toni’s ’90s stardom. The Grammy winner’s rise to fame, whirlwind romance and two-time bankruptcy woes will become clearer as well as other pressures that come along with the music industry.
