Poor Baby: Tami Roman Wants Fans to Stop Bullying the Basketball Wives

Post By RelatedRelated Post

In what might be the biggest LOL moment of the week, Tami Roman of Basketball Wives says that she wants the public to stop bullying her and her co-stars.  In an interview with Sister2Sister Magazine, Roman goes in on those who are allegedly creating all of this negativity around her show:

“Waking up to negativity on Twitter, negativity on Facebook, negativity on blogs, it’s emotionally and mentally draining, and things people say because they think they know you for watching you one hour of the week, it can weigh on your psyche,” Tami toldSister 2 Sister.

Like most other bullies, Tami explains that much of her odd behavior is due to trauma she’s experienced in the past.

“The way I’ve dealt with things over the course of my life comes from deep-routed issues,” said Tami.

“Everybody has to respect the fact that people are going to take the journey and cross bridges when they’re ready to do it,” she said. “People judge based on how they would handle a situation. They don’t take into consideration how a person was raised. Everybody’s going to handle things differently.”

This month, major celebrities, including Star Jones, have come out against Basketball Wives, stating that the show makes black women look silly.  In her last swipe at critics, Roman, tells them to go away if they don’t like her.

“You don’t have to follow me on Twitter. You really don’t. You don’t have to like me on Facebook. You don’t have to do any of that. If you disagree with how I handle something or the way a moment went down, you can say that and you don’t have to call me a b!tc#. You don’t have to call me a lowlife. You don’t have to call me a hood rat. You don’t have to call me out my name to get your point across,” she said.

  1. You have nerve to have say you act like that because of your upbringing. You coward ! Only pick on women much smaller than you. You are simply a “Bully” and a embarrasment to yourself and other Black Women. If you have that many issues, get off of the TV. Now it explains why your own daughters didn’t want you to represent them. Now Shaunie trying to separate herself from you fools ! Open your eyes ! She has used you fools and now she refuses to accept responsibility for you two fools. Dam Evelyn likes women, that is why she is marrying that FOOL! Won’t be watching you UNBLESSED FOOLS any longer and won’t allow my Granddaughters to watch the show anymore. Not one thing is positive about it.

  2. I believe Tami is sincere about how hurtful “harsh” and violent words and behaviors assault our hearts and hers in particular; her responses indicate that much, but what she fails to realize is that she is looking in a mirror, that the behavior she and many of the women on this “show” project, what they’re feeling is the result of actions . When we are in denial we establish a double standard, one for ourselves and one for the target of our bad behavior when they have a human response to violence be it verbal or physical.

    Our anger can be overwhelming and how people feel when then leave our company tells us a lot about how we’ve behaved while together. America and the world, in general is suffering from a “crisis of character”; we’ve lost our way, we’ve abandoned what some refer to as good manners, etiquitte, good character. A wise man once said: The best amongst you are those who have the best manners and character as long as they develop a sense of understanding. Meaning treat people well, behave well in all that you do, understanding that you have an impact on those you greet and all that is around you. Jumping over tables, slapping folk, cussing, confronting, backbiting, and on and on doesn’t get you well placed in the hearts of others and the push back is to avoid you whenever possible or conclude that you are not to be supported.

    I do believe that we model behavior that we are exposed to over time and Tami, along with my other sisters have obviously been immersed in “negative communication” buuut we can change it! My sisters have been given the means and opportunity to change what holds them in this rut of rioting. Own it, do the work and the Community should follow suit. The best person is the one whom other people are safe from his tongue and his hand.

    The reality show that all of this “stuff” is showcased is commentary for another day.

    • Cisse….
      Well said… Beautifully said, and with much class and character too. (Outstanding my sister)
      Tammi you made this bed for yourself, and I know well that my responses to you and Evelyns behavior hit home. So that means that it reached out and touched you both, and you really are focused in and listening. Bottomline: (IT GOT YOUR ATTENTION / YOUR MILD STROKE SHOULD HAVE DONE IT).
      Ms. Roman hear me out!!! When you, and Evelyn portray such evil, low-down dirty negative behavior towards your own sisters, especially in the eyes of the public and white america, (you all inspire a deep passionate hurt and insult and disrespect to my soul / spirit-man)… I’m lashing out at you guys the only way I know how because I know for fact due to your behaviors none of you would adhere any other way, and I’m quite sure that I speak for many…
      MS. TAMMI !!!!! What about your daughters? ask yourself that question… What are you building and leaving over their heads, and I hope money is not at the top of the list.
      Your daughters seem to be some very very mannerable, lady-like, classy young women. It doesn’t seem like they were spawn from your loins the way that you have been portraying yourself on the show. Stop hurting us /black sisters, and we will stop (fighting you back)…wink!!! We are all one body fittly joined together, its not just all about you.
      Ms. Tammi…? What are you going to do about Suzie-The-Maggot-Mouth /carry-the-dog-a-bone…? I’m no hater, but I have no love for that stank sneeky ass bytch who keep all the nasty bullshyt going down between the sisters. She has no right to put her mouth on Kenya at all. I don’t care what kind of short-commings Kenya Bell has in your eyes, she is still our sister too, and she deserves better then what you guys are dishing her way. Evelyn is nothing but a tainted moron with no purpose but a stanky pussy for every ball player with money. She doesn’t have a damn conscience at all, so its a waste of time even trying to communicate with her at all, and now she’s revealing herself to be a lesbian, and taking pictures with that old insecure girl from “Love n Hip Hop”, who is player hating against my girl YANNDI…. yeah right!!!! Clean up all the bullshyt and then we /Sisters can talk….wink!!! until then MOI…..

  3. Tami and especially Evelyn are projecting the wrong image to the young black women who may be watching this reality show. They are infering that in order to solve your problems you need to engage in gossiping and in violence. If you notice, Tami says that those who disagree should stop following her on Facebook & Twitter, but she didn’t say stop watching Basketball Wives. If you want people to stop doing something it is better to include the whole enchilada, because it make you look a little more legitimate.

  4. Please!

  5. Ms. Tammi….
    Your not the only one who has suffered sexual attacks etc… Its a big issue in our black communities, and your excuse is what!!
    I’ve also been attacked and I have walked thru much sufferings, but you don’t see me on TV beating my sisters down, and using my horrific pass as an excuse for bad behavior towards other blackwomen…

    • A major sponsor has just left the show, we better hope that we don’t run into Evelyn or Tami anywhere because if so we all will have start ducking some bottles and rocks or something.

      • LMAO……. Too funny!!! Spencer you are so right!!!

  6. I actually remember Tami from her “The Real World” days and I liked her. The only problem is that she seemed to grow backwards instead of forwards. She had more class then than she does now.

    I do understand that she may have come up hard. I’m not insensitive to that. I have and I know a lot of other women that have too. Sorry Tami, but you are grown now. Stop inflicting yourself on everyone you come in contact with. You control your environment, you control yourself and this is now. Deal with now and stop making excuses for yourself. Every time you drop off the deep end you revert to those same tired excuses. Prove that you are a strong black woman, not a bitter, abusive, angry child.

    You might want to act now, before you catch a case in the real world.

  7. Good website! I truly love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified when a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
