Celebrity kisses have become the trendy thing to do now as a popular rating booster for most  award shows. From Jamie Fox to Fantasia, Halle Berry to Jamie Fox, and Madonna to Britney Spears these kisses haven proven to be the favorite on the replay button. But no oner could have imagined the events of November 3 taking place on the prerecorded 2009 Soul Train Awards. The show now at the top of the entertainment buzz charts will air on November 29, at 9 p.m. on BET. The infamous segment that has been hitting the blogs hard is the very intimate kiss between Toni Braxton and Trey Songz as they performed Toni's new single "Yesterday."

Even though you can't tell from the very real lip lock Toni gave Trey Songz as a part of their sizzling performance, Toni Braxton is married to Keri Lewis, former member of Mint Condition. Yours truly Keri Lewis himself had front row seats to this low blow in one way or another from his superstar wife. Shall we call Ms. Braxton a Cougar?  Soon after the events of November 3 Keri Lewis and Toni Braxton separated, split , broke up ....can you say divorce on the rise. There is much speculation that the kiss between Toni and Keri lead to their unfortunate demise. On the other hand there is plenty of evidence suggesting that Keri Lewis had previously been unfaithful. 

The lyrics from "Yesterday" performed by Toni Braxton and Trey Songz speak loud and clear saying,

Gave you the benefit of the doubt till you showed me what your all about, true colors came out. And your words couldn't hide the scent about the truth of where you had been, cuz it was fragrance I couldn't recognize. Standing there scratching your head, blood shot eyes drunk with regret. I'm done with this feeling like an idiot , lovin you I'm over it. I just don't love you, don't love you no more . You, you are so yesterday.

Regardless of who did what,when, and why there is still a level of respect that still needs to be maintained as a member of the "married society."   So whether your a celebrity or a regular Joe Blow if your married kissing someone besides your spouse in front of thousands of people spells divorce or problems that need resolution. If the kiss was done as a part of a publicity stunt the money flow from such a stunt won't be there when your spouse will. So was Toni wrong? Although we, the audience, are on the outside looking in we can't accurately depict what is really going on. But, one thing is unmistakably clear Toni Braxton undoubtedly made a very clear statement and that statement sets the tone for how society looks at the union of a marriage.
