    Oh whatever Tami! You benefited from Shaunie’s favoritism for multiple seasons! Everyone who stood up to you or you had an issue with got fired Tami! Now you’re saying Brandi was good for the show when you’re one of the ones who pushed for her to be fired and bragged about it! Tami is so fake!

      Exactly!! She fought a couple of times on the show. She had a problem with putting her hands or attempting to fight several cast members.

    I’ll never forget how big of a bully Tami was on the show. Her image makeover doesn’t make me forget that time she stole that woman’s purse. It’s hilarious to see her playing victim now like she’s any better than Shaunie and Evelyn. She was happily in their mean girl crew for multiple seasons.

    What’s the point of quitting the show if you’re still going to talk about it all the time?

        Tami has a publicist. If she didn’t want to discuss Basketball Wives, all she had to do is tell her publicist and the publicist would have told Keyshia to refrain from asking questions about the show. She didn’t because she wanted to talk about it. In fact, she always wants to talk about it. And she proudly shared the clip of her talking about Shaunie to her IG page because despite quitting, she has still not moved on from the show. If you’re really done with something, stop talking about it.

    oh, so now they only showed film of her acting a darn fool, being a bully. Naw slim, that was you. She was so pressed to be accepted by the mean girl Evelyn that she dropped her guard & got her feelings hurt. Evelyn slept with your husband & talked trash to you about it, why would you ever treat her as anything but, a snake. Dummie.

    This is why OG > Tami. OG really was mistreated and didn’t bully anyone but stood up for herself when she was bullied. Meanwhile, Tami likes to forget that she was a bully on the show and only plays victim now because she is jealous she couldn’t be as close to Shaunie as Evelyn was. Girl gone. You left the show, so stop talking about it too, okay?

    I like Tami but she needs to stop it with this victim act. Sis was mean as h-ll on the show for no reason at times. Shaunie has her ways for sure, but Tami benefitted from them for a very long time. I think her real issue has always been that she would sometimes feel out of place because Shaunie and Evelyn are tighter. Either way, I’m happy she was able to leave the show and be so successful. I don’t think she should talk about the show anymore. There’s no need. She’s happy and doing bigger things now. So leave the past in the past. Happy Friday y’all.

    Tami the bully has the worst look taking property that did not belong to u and telling the person that it belonged too they had to ask for it back WOW, or slapping people cause they don’t agree with you, or chase a person down a street in a foreign country. Tami should have been charged with assault n battery, thievery and bullying just sitting back waiting for some one to disagree so she can assault them she needs to be locked in a cage. Shaunie allowed this to happen and all she did was laugh why didn’t she fire this bully long ago they got the Miami show cancelled and sponsors threatening to pull out because of the bully look that they thought was cute.
