Tami Roman: I Acted Like a “Pure Fool” on Basketball WivesPublished by Natasha Fierce on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at 8:29 am.
Did Wendy Williams mix some truth serum in with the bottled water in the green room of her show? The talk show queen somehow got a cast member from Basketball Wives to—gasp!—take personal responsibility for her actions on the show.
Tami Roman visited Wendy’s couch on Tuesday and admitted to her bad behavior toward Kesha Nichols on episode 13 of Basketball Wives. “It was a difficult time because the truth of the matter is I can’t let what someone is saying behind the scenes … what they’re doing … how they’re acting drive me to that level of frustration,” Roman said.
And then came the straight talk: ”At the end of the day the only person who I have to blame is me because I was the one who got up there and acted a pure fool—I’m openly admitting that—but I have since apologized to Kesha I have tried to take the responsibility behind my actions.”
But Tami’s not ready to take all the blame for the backlash against BBW. “A lot of people sit and point the finger and start boycotts and all of this other stuff, but nobody’s stepping up to the plate to mentor to help us,” she said. ”If you turn a camera around on anybody’s life for one day, everybody’s has a moment that they aren’t too proud of.”
The 41-year-old says she saw the light when she realized that her daughters, and probably all of their friends, indeed watch the show. “For me, I am raising my two daughters and this particular incident really taught me a valuable lesson … I wasn’t really acknowledging the platform that VH1 and Shed have offered me … I wasn’t really being responsible, you know,” Roman said, tearing up.
TR also dropped another bomb: she hinted that she may be leaving BBW altogether for greener pastures. “I just signed on to be a series regular for a new show, the network hasn’t made the announcement yet so I can’t really talk too much about it but you guys will see me actually doing a scripted program,” she said.
Watch out, Nene Leakes.
