Seems like Basketball Wives’ biggest bully feels bullied.

By: Amanda Anderson-Niles

It’s been a rough fourth season for the cast of Basketball Wives as they have been subjected to some pretty messy controversies involving their lack of ladylike behavior the majority of the season. Out of complete disgust, along came the internet petitions, decrease in ratings, lawsuits,lost sponsorship and the embarrassment that they can’t even seem to escape on the social networks. Although Tami may be one of the leading bullies of the VH1 reality TV trainwreck show, Tami Roman, who was once adored for keeping it “oh so real,” is now hiding from those pesky Twitter insults.

After deleting her Twitter account a few days ago and reportedly refusing to show up to the taping of the reunion show, Tami decided to take to her Facebook page to explain her self dismissal from the popular social network and usual slaughter-ground for all the “bullying” of the most vicious of the Basketball Wives.

Tami’s explanation:

I deactivated my twitter for the time being because I have been blessed with a wonderful opportunity to work with phenomenal actors on a new television show. I didn’t want to wake up to the continual negativity from a mistake made over four months ago, which I have openly acknowledged and apologized for to overshadow the blessing of this moment. I plan to reactivate my twitter when a formal announcement has been made about this new opportunity with the hopes of putting BasketBall Wives behind me.

Although an official statement has yet to be made, it sounds like the rumors of Tami Roman leaving the Basketball Wives franchise may not be rumors, but indeed true.

This could be a smart move for Tami, but one could argue that she left just a little bit too late. It’s hard to forget about all the wig snatching, drunken rage, and purse snatching once we’ve been subjected to it for the last couple of seasons.



  1. Yeah. Tami needs to just leave the show. The little paycheck she was getting isn’t worth what she is going through now. I was on Twitter and saw everyone dragging her and her daughters. People are calling her a bully and then turning around and bullying her and her kids on Twitter. This shows brings out the worst in everybody.

  2. I don’t feel sorry for Tami. She is getting exactly what she deserves. I know the producers encourage a lot of this behavior, but why didn’t she or anyone else just walk away from it? Now everyone looks like a fool and can’t get away from how stupid they looked on TV. I can’t even see Tami becoming a real actress after this. What major production company wants to associate with the angry, drunk black woman from Basketball Wives?

  3. I’m not defending Tami but if you listen to the first few minutes of the video in the post, she tells the interviewer how the top producer of the show is bending over backwards for Kesha. There has been a rumor going around since they introduced Kesha to the show that she slept with the top producer. Sounds like they are throwing Tami under the bus and making Kesha out to be a victim by not showing the whole story of what Kesha is doing behind the scenes and saying about the other cast mates.

    1. I have to disagree with you on this one too Peachy. Tami is a grown a– woman who obviously has a lot of problems. And every time she did something totally ghetto and uncalled for, she had a beer in her hand. She was cut out for this, and now she can’t take the heat coming out the kitchen. Too bad.

  4. No need for Tami to have her panties in a bunch. She can shuck and jive, eat a bucket of friend chicken, and roll her neck on her next trashy television show. Because you know there will be another one. Old drunk.

      1. Girl I’ve been lurking. Been too deep in here for my tastes. But you know I come out of hiding when I have someone to roast. 🙂

  5. At this point, the show just needs to be cancelled. The damage has already been done and there is no turning back at this point. I’m not sure why they keep trying to speak up for themselves now anyway. They should have had some backbone a long time ago and just stopped doing the show. Shows like these will continue as long as these unemployed groupies continue to have no kind of dignity.

  6. She deleted her Twitter account because she’s a coward!!! And she always has been! She knows exactly who to pick on! I can’t stand her old hard faced self. Looking just like a bear. Go away!

  7. Trust me when I say that Tami will NOT be coming back on BBW. It will be announced very soon. And the show itself is on its last leg. Look for Shaunie to be starting some new “businesses” very soon.

  8. In that episode when she went ham on Kesha, she looked totally possessed in the eyes. She obviously has a drinking problem and some real emotional issues. She gets on TV and makes herself look so pathetic that its actually embarrassing to everyone else.

  9. tammy is a selective bully!!!!!! she only bullies people she nows she can beat! I remember on a real world reunion show of casts 1,2,and 3 heather b said i wish she would get out of pocket with me,and tammy was quiet as a church mouse??????? u fuckin selective bully!!!!!!!

  10. And by the way could you imagine her taking nene leakes purse??????pahhhlease she would get broke down!!!!!!!! yea Tammy i couldnt stand you on the real world and cant stand you now!!!!! lol you got ran off twitter! lol!
