Tami Roman calls Evelyn fake and Shaunie shady? “Basketball Wives” is back in its fifth season and although some of the original cast members got the axe after season four, Shaunie and crew are hoping the show can survive without them. The two most controversial women of the show, Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada, are still on the reality show, but it now appears that the tight bond they had season four is heading for trouble. While Evelyn and Shaunie are still very close, Tami appears to be having a hard time getting along with her two friends, and she claims they have turned on her. Tami recently lost her mother to cancer, and she says her mother’s death has made it difficult for her to deal with the drama of “Basketball Wives.”
On the most recent episode, Suzie blames Tami for that awkward conversation she had with newbie Tasha Marbury, and Suzie even claims it was Tami who asked her to ask Tasha about the whole “chef” incident regarding her husband Stephon Marbury.
Tami also isn’t too happy about certain scenes she watched between Evelyn and Shaunie in which they talk about how confrontational Tami can be. At one point they even seem to suggest Tami didn’t show up to Evelyn’s PETA event because she was jealous, but Tami says she was actually tending to her sick mother.
In a video posted by Tami to YouTube, the reality star goes off on her cast mates and slams Shaunie and Evelyn for being shady. She even warns Suzie that she will handle her on the reunion show and threatens her to tell the truth about the conversation with Tasha at the reunion.
Here are the highlights of the video.
On Suzie and the “chef” conversation with Tasha:
“I told Suzie before we went in that woman’s house do not bring up the chef. Don’t talk about it at all, just let the women get to know us. Let us get to know her, let’s just go in here and have a good a-s dinner and leave it at that. But that is not what Suzie did.
“Suzie, I said use the information if she came for us and that is not what was going on at that dinner. So the fact that you chose to open up about your big a*s mouth and bring that up at that woman’s dinner, that is not on me.
“But let me tell you what you are going to do. You’re going to use that same big a*s mouth of yours at the reunion and let everybody know the truth and what I told you to do because you know that I told you not to bring up that chef.”
After breaking down in tears of her mother’s death, Tami then calls out Evelyn and Shaunie and says she now realizes they are shady and will always stick together:
“I don’t care about this Basketball Wives stuff and creating drama and having to just defend myself and speak up for myself week after week. I’m dealing with real stuff. So if people want to continue being shady and make Tami the scapegoat…because y’all gon’ stick together. I see how it is Shaunie and Evelyn, y’all gon’ stick together. I got it. I’m clear on it. But don’t try to make me the heavy week after week because y’all know what I was dealing with in my life.”
