Tami Roman Refuses to Bash Her Ex Husband for Latest DUI
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
With Basketball Wives set to return in August, it’s pretty clear that the stars still left standing on the show (Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman, and Shaunie O’Neal) will have a lot of material to cover in the upcoming season if the recent headlines are any indication. Evelyn is expected to open up to the cameras about her divorce and fallout with Chad Johnson, Shaunie plans to show more of her home life and romance with her younger beau, and Tami Roman is attempting to become a serious actress although her recent show Belles got the axe by TV One. But one thing Tami doesn’t want to discuss in addition to her violent past on last season of the show is her ex husband retired NBA player Kenny Anderson. Kenny was arrested for DUI last weekend. Miami CBS Local reports:
Anderson, 42, was arrested early Saturday morning on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and failing to use a signal for a lane change, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the arresting officer, Anderson failed a roadside sobriety test and after initially refusing, agreed to a breathalyzer test.
The arrest affidavit stated Anderson blew a .194 and a .195, more than twice the legal limit of .08.
As to be expected, Tami’s camp has now been flooded with interview requests as a result of Kenny’s latest legal trouble, but the Basketball Wives star has decided she doesn’t want to use that the situation as an excuse to bash her ex. She writes on Instagram:
“My email was flooded with interview requests pertaining to the story above. Here is my comment…. Even though our relationship is strained that is still the father of my babies. I would never find joy within his trials. Clearly he is hurting and all I can do is pray for him.”
