Toni Braxton Talk Show: Singer And Family Pitching New TV Series

Toni Braxton and her family have already proved they can bring in the monster ratings with "Braxton Family Values," their hit reality show for WE-TV. Now the Braxtons are turning their eyes toward syndication with their own daytime talk show. Watch out, Katie Couric!

"Toni, Traci, Towanda and Trina are all in LA right now, pitching a talk show," one Los Angeles TV executive tells me. "Think 'The View' but with a lot of sass! There will be the Braxton sisters' version of 'Hot Topics,' called 'Spill the T,' plus gossip, relationships, fashion, makeover segments and celebrity guests. They have even gotten their mom to do an 'Ask Mommy' advice segment. A fun, fun show."

The Braxtons would have a lot of competition. Several new talk shows are set to debut, with hosts including Queen Latifah, former "Real Housewives" cast member Bethenny Frankel, chefs Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis, and even Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner.

"Toni is totally into it, as is the rest of the family," one family friend tells me. "They have somehow managed to secure Rob Dauber, a veteran of 'The Rosie Show,' 'Oprah' and 'The Wendy Williams Show,' to be executive producer and make them the next daytime hit. Plus, you know they are going to have one hell of a theme song!"
