Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada beef reignites on Twitter? Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada both rose to fame with their over the top behavior on “Basketball Wives,” but the reality stars became a target of backlash when they may have taken things a little too far in season four of the VH1 reality show. Not only were both a target of an online petition that caused the show to lose endorsements, but in the end Shaunie and the VH1 execs had to promise that the following season would be more positive. Interestingly enough, the women who didn’t start any of the show’s biggest conflicts were all kicked off, and Shaunie and company opted to keep Tami and Evelyn, the two most controversial women on the show. Shaunie recently said keeping Evelyn and Tami was a ratings decision, but in the end neither Tami or Evelyn have been able to save the show’s now fleeting ratings.
Now a few episodes into season five, Tami and Evelyn have both confirmed that they will not be returning for another season. Tami says she’s moving on because she’s tired of the image she’s received from the show and she is tired of Shaunie and Evelyn throwing her under the bus.
Evelyn is over the show because she now feels she’s a big enough star to secure her own spinoff show, and she even claimed she’s the reason the show was ever a hit in the first place. But she also told HuffPost Live that Tami has to talk about her to even get interviews, a comment Tami was not pleased with.
Tami took to her Twitter account to set Evelyn straight and she also suggested her once on-screen friend may have let reality television stardom get to her head. Tami tweets (read bottom to top):
After a follower told Tami not to let Evelyn cause her to show out, Tami agreed and then deleted the tweets. Evelyn did not respond.
