Now, we all have things we regret, however it is usually the things we did do rather than those we didn’t do. As expected, celebrities have their own regrets too. Toni Braxton’s regret is more on the one thing our parents tried to keep us from doing – being sexually active and drinking excessively.

“I regret not having more sex when I was younger. I should have drank more. I should have partied more. Smoked more, even. I think my religious upbringing stopped me doing a lot of things that I should have done. It’s not a good look at the age I am now. The way it works is you do that stuff in your 20s and 30s and then in your 40s you’ve earned enough to pay for the therapy,” she says in an interview with The Guardian.

Toni grew up in a religious home. She, however, does not have a religion she's part of, “I wouldn’t say I was religious, but I am spiritual. I believe in a greater force. When I was seven, my family became very religious. We were Jehovah’s Witnesses; we were Catholic – we tried everything before settling on United Methodist,” she adds.
