Toni Braxton’s Biopic “Unbreak My Heart” Draws Millions of Viewers

Were you one of the 3.6 million viewers to have tuned in for the world premiere of “Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart,” which aired on Lifetime on Saturday?

As we’ve seen with other biopics of beloved musicians like Aaliyah and TLC, it could have ended very badly for Toni’s show. Fortunately, according to Nielsen Fast Cable Ratings, this biopic was the number one original movie since the 2015 Lifetime Original Movie, “Whitney”.

The biopic follows Toni Braxton’s journey of becoming a superstar after she was discovered by big named producers L.A. Reid and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. Of course, it also gives us a closer look at the more intimate aspects of her life—aspects that include her battle with Lupus, her very public divorce, trying to keep her sanity while dealing with family problems and her son’s diagnosis of autism.

A newcomer, Lex Scott Davis, stars as Toni, while Tiffany Hines, Cortney Scott Wright and Skye P. Marshall were cast to play her sisters, Tamar, Traci and Towanda; respectively.

Twitter was overwhelmed with celebrities and fans showing their support and praise to all cast members for their incredible performances.


Russell Simmons:

‘Proud of my friend @tonibraxton — tuned in to #ToniBraxtonMovie right now. one of greatest voices we’re ever[sic] heard + such a remarkable woman.”

@Ario97One:

 ‘I have the utmost LOVE, RESPECT & ADMIRATION for this woman @tonibraxton! Thank you @lifetimetv for #ToniBraxtonMovie & #BeyondTheHeadlines’


Right after the biopic, Beyond the Headlines: Toni Braxton aired. The companion show follows up with exclusive interviews with the Braxton family, Toni, L.A. Reid, Babyface, David Foster (a record producer) and Diane Warren (a songwriter). The show also included stories from when Toni was a child, her rise to fame, and struggles—both financially and health-wise.

Toni spoke with InStyle about the movie and discussed how it helped her clear some things up about her life, as well as reconnect with her fans.

‘I had to sit in silence about what happened and no one got to hear or see my side.’

I don’t know about you, but I loved some Toni Braxton back in the day.

Even though Braxton’s life has been an open book—literally, the biopic was based on her memoir “Unbreak My Heart”—and she and her sisters share even more in their reality show “Braxton Family Values”, her adoring fans are still adoring every second they get to see their idol.  No word on whether the Lifetime Channel will give us an encore presentation—but with the praises and ratings that poured in following the movie, it wouldn’t be a surprise if audiences will get to share Toni’s heartbreak in “Unbreak My Heart”  at least one more time.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
