LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Toni Braxton may be one sexy mama, but she’s not quite ready for a change in relationship status.
The buxom bombshell stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Thursday — along with her sisters, Tamar and Trina, the stars of WE’s “Braxton Family Values” — and the conversation quickly turned to Toni’s love life.
“I’m single. [It’s] a bit of an adjustment,” the singer, who separated from her husband, Keri Lewis, in late 2009, told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. “I’m not really ready to date.”
When Toni, 43, is ready jump back into the dating world, the Grammy Award winner said her mother would be ready with romance advice.
“My mom keeps telling me I need to go on the other side of the street because she’s single, and she’s been dating snowflakes,” Toni said.
“White guys?!” Billy asked.
“Yeah. She’s like, ‘Maybe you need to catch yourself a little snowman,’” Toni answered, while her sisters laughed. “I’m like, ‘Mom! Well, maybe…’”
The “Un-Break My Heart” singer said that although she’s “never dated” a Caucasian man, her background is very diverse.
“My grandma was Caucasian,” she explained. “She was Jewish.”
Additionally, the glowing mother of two — who was recently approached by Playboy to pose for a sexy spread — said that although she “feels great” about the offer, she’s hesitant to accept it because of her young sons.
“They’ve asked me. I was really flattered,” she told Billy and Kit. “I was going to say yes immediately, but then I said, ‘I have kids and they’re 8 and 9, and they’re going through the booby stage.’
“They’re noticing boobies,” she continued with a laugh. “I don’t want their friends to say, ‘I saw your mom’s boobies in my dad’s bathroom!’”
