I’m proud of Tami Roman for standing up and admitting her unruly behavior on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday. It’s not easy to admit a mistake especially when the whole ordeal played on tv but kudos to Tami for writing her wrong and moving forward. Tami got a little emotional during part of the segment and explained how her daughters were embarrassed about the ‘purse snatching incident’ on Basketball Wives.
From the conversation it seems as though season 5 is a go (despite rumors of being cancelled) and Tami promises a more toned down version unlike what we have been accustomed to (at least from her character).. The entire interview was really upbeat and refreshing. Thankfully the old Wendy from her radio days didn’t magically appear or she may have snatched the yaki from her scalp. Everyone knows Wendy had a reputation of going in on her guest and I’m sure she would have eaten Tami alive. Peep the entire video/interview below…

Even though Meeka Claxton only appeared on one season of Basketball Wives her lasting impression will forever be etched in stone. She too had felt the holy wrath of Tami Roman during a altercation on a out of town voyage sponsored by Shaunie O’Neal of course. After virtually disappearing from reality tv all together Meeka is speaking out via her blog on the growing violence on Basketball Wives and the lack of support she experience after the show ended.
Via Meeka’s blog:
“Meeka the violence on reality television has to stop!” “Meeka, I’m so glad you left that show!” “Meeka, I hate how reality TV is portraying black women!” “Meeka, can you believe the way grown women are acting?” “Meeka, those girls are bullies with serious issues” “Meeka, I stopped watching that show because the violence is disgusting!!”…
……These are some of my actual twitter mentions. For the last 3 months, my twitter has been flooded with these comments and hundreds more exactly like them. I said it on the reunion and I will say it again, I’m 32, a CEO, a wife and a mommy, I did not sign up for Bad Girls Club. As a mom, I am my daughters’ FIRST role model and as a black woman who has been given a platform, I have a responsibility to show young girls “better”.

First and foremost you were the entire reason I started watching Basketball Wives In the 1st place. After years of leaving reality tv a familiar face had returned to add a little spice and give real life accounts on what it meant to be a “Real” basketball wife. From the gate you were the most hated and the girls had a field day snatching and flipping your wig. They made fun of you collecting public assistance and even your right hand girl set up a dinner just so you could get drunk and find out a groupie had been sleeping with your husband while you were married.
Seriously you didn’t consider these to be real friends did you?

I know we all laugh and frown at what we see on reality tv often yelling or tweeting expletives at our favorite on screen villains, but the real reality of it all is these people are human too.
In a press release given by VH1, Tami Roman was admitted to a New York City hospital for a “mild medical condition.”

In the issue Michelle will share her experiences on traveling to Africa and her message to women among many other topics.
“My story to young people around this country and around the world is: Don’t look at me as the First Lady first; look at me as Michelle Obama, a girl who grew up on the South Side of Chicago. Because I was there, and this is attainable. There is no magic to this. It is hard work….”

After Shaunie went on a world wide tour expressing her displeasure in the direction Basketball Wives had taken specifically the fighting and backstabbing. Shaunie called for a need to move the show to a more Sesame Street atmosphere where everyone gets along and plays hopscotch outside of Mr. Hooper Store. However resident backyard brawler and beer slugger Tami Roman set the record straight warning calmer waters will equal real welfare checks all over AGAIN….
Tami recently spoke to The Examiner about the whole ordeal:
Shaunie is caught between a rock and a hard place because she’s not the only executive producer. So, I know when she initially went with this concept to them, what ‘Basketball Wives’ has evolved into is not her creative mindset at work. What ultimately ended up happening is that when you do reality TV, the whole thing that drives it is the dramatic aspect. If you have six, seven people who all get along, nobody finds that interesting.

Poor Tami it seems the resident brawler on Vh1′s Basketball Wives just can’t catch a break. After arriving in LA on Thursday she was involved in a serious car accident. She was being picked up from the airport when her car was struck from behind causing massive damage. Tami tweeted “Me & my dude jus landed in LA and got in auto accident. Rear ended by two cars. Thk God no visible injuries-but I have major headache!
Well that’s great to know. Get well soon!
On the flip side of things it all falls down…..
It seems Meeka isn’t gonna waste her time coming at Tami’s throat physically and instead is gonna do damage to her bank account.
according to a lawsuit filed in New York Meeka claims Tami “assaulted, battered, beat, threatened, menaced, attacked, jumped on, pushed to the ground, thrashed, punched, and shoved” Meeka … causing serious injury.”

Italy has become the new breeding ground for Reality Tv Riff Raff and The Fuckery continues to spill over in the country shaped like a boot. I’m sure they would love to kick our a**es out of their beloved homeland because we act a fool.
Well this story was rumored to have happened a while back but now the supposed battle between Tami ‘Iron Lung” Roman and Meeka “If Ain’t Butter “No That’s just the heat” Claxton let the wigs, beer bottles, and leftover pizza dough fly when the two exchanged more than just lee press on nails during their trip to Italy.
According to TMZ a full brawl broke out … and ended with Tami PUNCHING Meeka right in the face o_O
Well after the show ended last night they previewed scenes for the following week with two ladies pulling hair. While who they were not shown (I’m sure to add suspense that perhaps Jen and Evelyn had decided to duke it out) it can now be confirmed Tami got the better of Meeka….
Dag Tami you go hard and never go home!
