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.

No convalescing for Tami Roman! The 41-year-old reality star, who suffered a mild heart attack five days ago, is back on her well-heeled feet and even made an appearance at Club Live over the weekend, sporting a hot LBD and looking pretty good for her condition. Hope she at least hit the dance floor and got in her cardio.
Meanwhile, after a break that lasted about ten minutes, Tam is back on the Crackberry, firing off tweets between gin and tonics: “I’ve learned to manage the clock and not be governed by it-take time out of ur day to relax-everything will still be there ”
Nice to see the girl out and about, but don’t forget that apple a day, Tami!

Tami Roman is facing her third lawsuit this year…and this one’s gonna be a hair puller. After dealing with claims of assault by her former co-star Meeka Claxton and non-payment by a former manager, Tami now has to deal with Constance Corleone, owner of Bella Dream Hair, who has this to say about the reality TV star: b*tch stole my weave!
According to TMZ, in the suit Corleone says Roman asked her for samples of her hair extensions, and shortly after announced plans to launch her own line of fake locks. In case that wasn’t enough to spur on a cat fight, Tami also allegedly used Corleone’s product in her own advertising campaign for her company Curls by Roman.
Tami spoke out about the suit by tweeting, “Fraudulent people trying to take credit NOT. People trying to take credit for this hair. WTF they crazy.”
Roman and Corleone are keeping their fight limited to the court room and Twitter (for now), but seriously…if there were ever a time for someone to offer Nene Leakes her own Judge Judy-type show, now would be it. “Whatsa matter? Wig squeezin’ your brain too tight?”

Lovers of Basketball Wives, get ready to do without a cast member. Starting next month, when shooting of the reality series begins, Meeka Claxton is off the show.
According to TMZ, sources involved with production said that the ex-wife of NBA player Speedy Claxton has been uninvited. Also, she “hasn’t even heard from producers since the reunion show was taped a few months back.”
What sealed the deal for Claxton? Producers became fed-up after she sued fellow cast member Tami Roman. And Roman, in turn, said that she would not return to the series if Meeka did.
Guess we know who’s the new MVP of Basketball Wives. If producers are that willing to bend in the direction of the wrathful Tami, then she must now be considered ratings gold. Even more reason to anticipate season four.
