Reality TV Stars Who Went Broke
Toni Braxton's money problems started long before she appeared on "
Braxton Family Values." After chart-topping hits including "Un-Break My Heart," the singer first filed for bankruptcy in 1998. Then 12 years later, after many more successes -- including an appearance on "
Dancing With the Stars" -- she filed again, claiming she owed between $10 million and $50 million in unpaid debts. Well, she must have a great bankruptcy attorney, because a year later she seemed to have her financial situation straightened out. While standing in a fancy new home for the Season 2 premiere of "Braxton Family Values," she said, "I'm very fortunate, my bankruptcy situation worked out really great for me. So I'm starting over, and starting over can be a great thing."
