Toni gleamed as she shared her experience of meeting First Lady Michelle Obama during Bet’s Black Girls Rock event in New York:
“This year we had the pleasure of having and honoring our First Lady Michelle Obama in the house. It was a little difficult because of the extra security but it was also very exciting to hear her live and in person.”
Even with the Secret Service and dogs smelling her makeup bags, it was still a moment and experience Toni was blessed to have been a part of.
She also has her “Butterfly EFX” make-up line coming out soon with her business partner and friend Atlanta Ex’s reality star Christina Johnson.
