The suit was settled with Braxton returning a $375,000 advance to Hankerson—who would also receive a percentage of the sales of her next album—and Hankerson releasing Braxton from her contract with him. The settlement also limits the companies in which Braxton can sign with.[34][35]
In early August, various internet websites including TMZ.com and In Touch Weekly magazine began announcing that Braxton would be appearing on the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars. The full cast of the next season of the show was confirmed on August 25, 2008 on Good Morning America, which confirmed Braxton as a contestant in the season with her partner being Alec Mazo.[36]

Acting career

Braxton has appeared on two Disney Broadway shows: She made her Broadway debut as Belle in "Beauty and the Beast" beginning September 9, 1998 where she replaced Kim Huber.[51] During her run in the show Alan Menken wrote a new song for the musical called "A Change in Me," which was especially written for Braxton and was used in the musical ever since.[52] She left the production on February 28, 1999 and was succeeded by Andrea McArdle.[53] Her role in "Beauty and the Beast" marked the first (and only) time a black woman commanded the leading role of Belle on Broadway. (In the UK, Michelle Gayle played the role in the West End.) It also marked the first time a black woman would star in a Disney musical on Broadway.[54] She then starred in "Aida" as Aida beginning June 30, 2003 where she replaced Simone[55] and left the cast on November 16, 2003 where she was replaced by Michelle Williams.[56] In 2001, she made her acting debut in the feature film Kingdom Come.[57] In 2004, Braxton appeared as herself, voicing a singing character named Toni, in a special episode and DVD release [58] of the children's television show Blue's Clues.[59] In August 2005, Braxton announced that she would be shooting a sitcom pilot for The WB's fall 2006 line-up, though plans to put the show into full-production fell through when The WB announced it would cease to exist in fall 2006 (as part of a merger with UPN to form The CW), She has also starred in the TV sitcom, Kevin Hill.[60] Braxton has recently completed filming of "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure" alongside Jaime Pressly and Cloris Leachman due to be released 2010. Her character - Rosalie Rosebud - is a singer, whose over-the-top personality was apparently inspired by Mariah Carey.[61]
