You had a health scare back in november. You have lupus. You look better. You feel great, I know. But every day's a little different. Every day is a little challenging. Today is a good day. I was diagnosed with lupus a couple years ago, in 2008. I had microvascular disease. And I had blood clots. It was a little scary. You have blood clots. Very fortunate they diagnosed it early. Can you slow down? I was forced to slow down then. But sometimes it's challenging being a mom and a working mom. We forget to listen to the signs from your body. I'm going to do better listening to my body. Now, we want to hear all about your new movi it's called "twist of faith." It's a cross cultural music-infused love triangle. That's a lot, right? You play nina. And she meets jacob, who is an orthodox jewish cantor. He finds himself in alabama of all places. And you help him put his life back together. What drew you to this role? What I loved about it, it was very me if I wasn't a singer. I went to college to be a schoolteacher. She's a p.K. I'm a preacher's kid. She lived next door to the church. When I read the script, i immediately identified with her. Let's watch a scene from the movie. You walk in on jacob. He's writing a song. And you start to sing together. Yeah. ♪ At this moment believe me ♪ ♪ I believe in you I believe in you ♪ is that right? Yeah. Wow. That was really good. That was beautiful. Good dimples. Good dimples. A little bit. He's a wonderful actor. It was great having him around. He showed me things that were new to me. And you had another co-star, your son? I was completely a mom. But I was excited for him to have his moment, as well. What was it like being on the set with him? It was good. I had to remind myself, toni, you have to stay in character. Stop being tony's mom. And I had michael t. Bubba gump. Always from "forrest gump." He's a wonderful actor and director. Lifetime is so brave. To air something like this. I am a christian. Jewish cantor. I'm african-american. He's caucasian. And they brought us together. Showing that sometimes love prevails above differences. It's about finding your spirituality and love along the way. You sing so beautifully in the movie clip we just saw. And I've heard that you say you may want to hang up that singing hat. Yes. How do you give up something you love? And you're so great at? Thank you for that. I don't feel the love for music anymore. It's not affecting me and making me feel that thing I always felt when I performed. It's leaving me. I'm not sure what's going on in my life. Maybe a female mid life crisis? You have to go where your heart is. My heart's not in it anymore. And I hate to say that. We see a lot of what goes on behind the scenes in "braxton family values," returning for a third season. What can we expect this time around? Even more drama. Let lots of that. We're very animated. We talk about what's going on in our lives. Even if we're family, sometimes you don't like each other. Some episodes are more daring than others. It looks like you had a lot of fun. We do have a lot of fun, yes. We have so much fun having you on. Thanks for being with us. "Twist of faith" premieres this saturday on lifetime.
