Tami Roman quits Basketball Wives? Tami Roman is without a doubt one of the most controversial figures of VH1’s “Basketball Wives.” The reality star came bursting on the scene in the second season when she attacked Evelyn Lozada for sleeping with her ex-husband Kenny Anderson while they were married. Tami continued to “turn” up for the following seasons, but she and Evelyn became the target of an online petition after Tami ran Kesha Nichols from the show and Evelyn had been violent several times with former friend Jennifer Williams and newbie Kenya Bell during season four. Once the reunion for season four ended, it was clear the show had lost lots of supporters and Tami is still defending herself from the bully label she has been given by critics for her actions.

Now in the show’s fifth season, Tami is being reminded just why Royce Reed and Jennifer Williams are happy they did not return to the show. Tami is still mourning the death of her mother, and she isn’t happy that Evelyn and Shaunie are making certain comments about her in her absence, and she also feels like both women have been throwing her under a bus. After she slammed both for being shady in a video blog, it’s been whispers going around that Tami has finally had enough of “Basketball Wives,” and now that she just got the gig on “Tiny Tonight,” some endorsements and a new hair line, the reality star is thinking long and hard about not returning for another season of “Basketball Wives.”

A fan asked Tami the other day on Twitter if she had any plans to do another season, and Tami was clear that she is done with the reality show:

Only time will tell if Tami’s serious or just still upset with the first few episodes of the current season, but her timing couldn’t be better considering the show is now tanking in ratings.

    Tami is smart. She is realizing how much of cancers Ms. Nostrils and Evelyn are.

    It’s about damn time. Make Shaunie get herself some new puppets.

    I just want to know what Tami has planned without BBW?

      A talk show, a hair line, an endorsement and probably more acting roles. I say she’ll be just fine. #shrugs

    Good for her! I’m so happy she’s leaving! She can do better things in life that won’t have her looking crazy!

    She’d return to the show if the money is right?

      It’s not about the money. Tami is tried of being thrown under a bus so Shaunie can make even more money. It’s time for her to walk away and I’m glad she’s doing that now.

        Cosign. I don’t approve the things she’s done in the past, but at least she is waking up and seeing the truth.

    *standing ovation* GOOD. I wish all black women would walk away from these trashy shows and stop getting paid to embarrass themselves.

    Wow. Never thought I’d see the day. Shaunie’s “empire” is collapsing. I couldn’t be happier.

    Shaunie and VH1 are running out of ladies to pimp

    Props to her. I can see she’s seeing the light now. All money ain’t good money and she doesn’t need the show anymore. She is doing other things that are more prosperous anyway.

    Basketball Wives is finished. The ratings stink and the main star is leaving. Is this karma? I think so.

    Your move Nostrils O’Neal.

  14. Seriously?

    September 11, 2013 at 11:07 am

    I’m starting to like Tami more and more. Smart woman.

    Took her long enough.

    Well damn. I didn’t think she’d ever leave. I guess she feels she doesn’t need the show anymore anyway.

    I bet Shaunie will try to get her to change her mind. Run away Tami, and don’t look back!
