Did Tami Roman get pregnant by Marlon Wayans and have an abortion? Well that’s the gossip that’s been going around ever since Tami Roman became a reality television star. Although it’s been known that the two met and dated in college at Howard University, most of the die-hard Real World fans recall the moment of the season when Tami had an abortion. But most aren’t sure if the baby was Marlon’s, since it’s well-known that two dated and talked on the phone around the time Tami was on the show. Tami was on the Real World Los Angeles season, and most remember the epic showdown she had with one of her male roommates (David) when horse playing went horribly wrong. Since Tami Roman has new-found fame with her stint on Basketball Wives, the two have been linked again, with many still claiming that she aborted Marlon Wayans’ baby.
Interestingly enough, I was hearing it so much that I began to believe it myself. However, I ran into someone at recent shindig with some friends who went to Howard with both Tami and Marlon, and this person shared some of her mutual acquaintances. You already know I asked.
Here’s the rundown of what they said:
Tami and Marlon did date. That part is true. But she was never pregnant by Marlon. In fact, Tami dated a few men while she was on the show. The person who got her pregnant is just some random man she kicked it with while she was on The Real World. This is a crazy rumor that has been going on for years. Tami was real cool back in the day (nothing like she is on Basketball Wives), but she did have a reputation for messing with a lot of men at the same time. But she was in college, and most girls did the same thing. She was still talking to Marlon while she was on The Real World, but it wasn’t his baby. And although they dated, they weren’t close to marriage or anything because the relationship wasn’t that serious to either one of them.
Well there you have it. I was also told by the same person that after hanging around Tami in college, they truly believe that Tami’s behavior on Basketball Wives is nothing but an act for ratings. I guess that’s just confirmation after Tami suggested the show was scripted not too long ago.
