Toni Braxton: ‘I Am Losing My Booty’ on DWTS

Toni Braxton is one star not looking to shed any additional pounds from her stint on Dancing with the Stars.
“I’m losing my booty and I’m not happy about that," Braxton lamented to PEOPLE at the SBE Grand Opening of XIV in Hollywood Wednesday. "So if you see it, tell it to come home, please!”
"All the dancing is sometimes hard because the booty is a fatty muscle so I’m leaning out in a lot of different places," added the 5'2", 100-lb. singer.
In fact, Braxton is trying to gain weight as she heads into week six of the grueling dance competition by adding a big Hollywood no-no to her diet: carbs.
"I love pasta but I didn’t eat a lot of carbs before, now I am,” said Braxton. In addition, the 41-year-old mother of two also drinks plenty of water and eats protein to maintain her energy during her grueling dance sessions with partner Alec Mazo. --Michelle Ward
