Tami Roman may have surged to instant fame when she came bursting on the scene on VH1’s “Basketball Wives,” and most of us realized the moment we saw her attack Evelyn for sleeping with her ex-husband Kenny Anderson that she would continue to bring the drama to the controversial reality show. And bring the drama she has ever since, unfortunately for Tami bringing the drama has also caused her to become the target of controversy. Not only did Tami instantly become labeled as one of the show’s most hated bullies after season four, but she and Evelyn were the main reasons the show ended up getting boycotted and became the subject of an online petition demanding VH1 to pull the plug.
In the end, some sponsors may have backed away from the show but VH1 opted to bring “Basketball Wives” back for another season. Interestingly enough, even though show favorites like Royce Reed and Jennifer Williams are gone (both made it clear on Twitter they are happy they jumped off a sinking ship anyway), Tami is finding out quickly that Shaunie and Evelyn can be a little shady, even if your name is Tami Roman.
Tami’s been hinting in her videos and even her recent video blog that she’s not having the best time being on the show these days and her friendships with Evelyn and Shaunie are basically non-existent at this point. While we’re hearing whispers that season five may be her last but haven’t taken them seriously, we’re starting to believe the rumors could be true considering Tami just landed yet another project outside of “Basketball Wives.”
Claudia Jordan took to her Twitter account to confirm that Tami Roman has been selected to replace Tamar Braxton on Tiny Harris’ VH1 talk show “Tiny Tonight.” Tami even retweeted Claudia’s confirmation:
Tami also took to Twitter to thank Tiny for selecting her:
Congrats to Tami on her new gig.
For those of you wondering why Tamar Braxton is being replaced, we were told Tamar’s contract with WE tv for her own reality show “Tamar & Vince” plus the possibility of her talk show “The Real” getting picked up by FOX made her contractually unable to commit to Tiny’s show.
