Basketball Wives' Tami Roman Forced To Quit The Show?

Is Tami Roman folding under pressure? It appears the mounting pressures applied from a popular boycott against Basketball Wives is getting the best of the boisterous star. First Tami accused the fans of bullying her, now she’s leaving hints on Twitter that season 4 may have been her last. Check out Tami’s response to a fan via twitter below:

“I hope on the next season of basketball they bring another hoodrat bitch to the show that’s not gonna back down from @TamiRoman bully ass,” tweeted the bold fan.

@CallMeCASH_ I actually hope they do well next season-I wish all the BBW’s the best of luck,” tweeted Tami in response.

It didn’t take a long before a fan interpreted the tweet as a send off,

“@TamiRoman @CallMeCASH_ you aren’t doin the show anymore, why? I hope not cause of the bad feedback.”

If Tami is indeed ready to throw in the towel she certainly has the support of former Basketball Wives LA star Tanya Williams who wrote a lengthy article on the Daily Beast blasting the show. See an excerpt below:

“I certainly don’t miss the environment I was exposed to while taping Basketball Wives. It was both toxic and controlling. Women were not allowed to communicate after shooting a scene; women were chastised as if they were children; high-ranking executives would childishly ignore cast members on the set; and producers would “ice” cast members from working when they wanted to garner more outrageous conduct from them. Despite the “friendships” portrayed on the screen, some producers purposely planted seeds of discord between the women, and told outright lies, hoping that conflict and drama would ensue. Oftentimes, when I arrived at home, I immediately took a shower because I felt psychologically and emotionally dirty and disgusting from my day on the set.

Basketball Wives is a valuable commodity to Shed Media and VH1. The women of Basketball Wives should start acting like professional businesswomen and less like tightly wound puppets and demand a balanced show. Working on Basketball Wives is a gig, not a career. If the women don’t want to lose paychecks due to the mounting boycotts, they had better stop fighting each other and join the raging battle against the network and the production company to eliminate the negative portrayal of women of color on Basketball Wives—before their 15 minutes of fame is up.”

Perhaps Tami isn’t feeling up to a fight…

  1. I DONT KNOW IF FROM JUST THAT TWIT RESPONCE WE CAN COME TO THE DETERMINATION THAT THIS IS WHAT TAMMIS PLAN IS. HOPEFULLY IT IS BECAUSE SHE NEEDS TO FIX HER MAJOR ISSUES, AND EVEN THOUGH SHE CONTINUES TO SAY SHE HAS CROSSED LEAPS AND BOUNDS AT THE SAME TIME SHE CONTINUES TO FALL BACKWARDS INTO THOSE LEAPS AND BOUNDS IN WHICH SHE HAS CLAIMED TO HAVE CROSSED. TAMI IF YOUR TAKING A BREAK MAMA, THAT IS THE BEST THING TO DO AND THEN YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REAPPEAR IN NEXT SEASON BECAUSE IF YOU CONTINUE DOWN THIS ROAD, YOU WILL RUIN YOUR OWN RESUME WITH YOUR MOUTH.

    • Tammi.you are a Foul/Mouthed Bully, you are a Disgrace, Shaunie, you are a 2faced Mean/Girl also!!!! Shame! Sad!!!!!! Shameful!! Tammi, MEDS,are in order ASAP…….Hiding Fish in Keisha room!!!

Bullies…… Tammi you Discuss me..Get some Tender Love,from any man who would lay with you Bully. then,Please take those MEDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE>>>>>>>

    Tammy came on the show broke, I highly doubt she is going to give up that paycheck. Besides every season her or Evelyn threaten to quit, maybe they throw some more dollars at Tammy.

  3. Thank GOD! I would like to see her get a REAL JOB now! I’d say, working at the zoo with the gorillas, tigers and bears for starters…………….and let’s see how she likes being attacked without reason!

  4. Niquice says:

    GOOD. WHEN IS EVELYN THE BOTTOM FEEDER LEAVING? SHE is one of the nastiest people i know of. extremely pathetic

  5. Valerie says:

    I agree with the comment that Royce wrote. She stated that none of the other women tried to defuse the situation. Shaunie sat there looking stupid, and evelyn was smirking the enire time. Suzie ignorant self needs to quit being a snake and running back telling everything that she hears. It should be clear that non of these women know the true meaning of real friendships. I think the show has taking a turn for the worse and shaunie could have ended this foolishness a long time ago. They don’t like royce because she is a fighter and don’t mind telling things as they are. Tammi is a bully and a fool to act like that on tv. We already know evelyn is stupid for getting ready to marry a man whom has openly admitted to sleeping with other women. Were living in sad sad times.

  6. Tami is a horrible person

  7. ATamiFan says:

    Ok. I know that Tami has shown alot of her anger side but Ya’ll need to back up before you judge folk especially when u do not understand the magnitude of some of the things Tami has been through. You have to realize, recongize and respect the fact that it takes time to undo old habits..

    You also have to realize that she isn’t the only one that his been arguing on this show. Secondly, she don’t throw bottles and plant vases and other objects at individuals whom she is arguing with. You need to look at evelyn who has virtually threatened to take down Kenya and Jen. She has terrorized Jen and has allowed her people to assault her. If ya’ll say Tami should go…then so should evelyn. Evelyn has a hard time coexisting with folk.

    Tami do not listen to the haterz, ma. Do you! COntinue working on you and making yourself better. I hope you do not leave BBW…but in the event that you do…know that God has something better for you. EFF these damn haterz! These people do not pay your bills.

    TAMI THE REAL REASON YOU ARE LEAVING THE BASKE BEALL WIVES IS BECAUSE OF YOUR BAD BEHAVIOR. YOU WANTED KEISHA TO APOLOGIZE BUT YOU DID NOT WANT TO APOLOGIZE TO HER YOU ARE A HIPPOCRIT.

  9. Annette Bell says:

    TAMMY ROMAIN IS A BULLY, SHE NEED HELP. PLEASE GIVE HER SOME HELP.

  10. Thank God, good riddance!!
    What a horrible Bully that doesn’t have an ounce of self awareness!
    I’m not sure if there’s a woman or man on TV today that is as horrible as this woman

  11. karen johnson says:

    Tami, you are a hot mess on the show you keep up a lot of mess and back bitting behind people back, You said, Kenya is 36 and grown and need to get her own purse. You need to run up against a real Black Woman and she tap that ass. Maybe this is just for the show, but you all are grown and this is how you behave. I hope that just for the show. I hope all you women got yourselves together.

  12. TAMI ISN’T LEAVING BECAUSE SHE WILL DO ANYTHING INCLUDE EMBARRASS HERSELF, HER MOM, HIS DAUGHTERS, HER FAMILY AND BLACK WOMEN AS A WHOLE, JUST TO GET THAT VH1 CHECK. I WISH SHE WOULD LEAVE AND THE SHOW WILL BE CANCELED! THEY CEMENT THE STEREOTYPE THAT BLACK PEOPLE ARE CORRUPT TRASH! THAT BLACK WOMEN ARE THE STEREOTYPED EVIL WOMEN! WE HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT AND THIS WOMAN MAKES US LOOK LIKE B#TCHES THAT NO ONE WANTS! OPRAH, ANGELA BASSET, MAYA ANGELOU, VANESSA WILLIAMS, THESE RE ALL ACCOMPLISHED WOMEN OF COLOR WHO BRING RESPECT TO US AS A PEOPLE BUT PEOPLE LIKE SHAUNIE, TAMI, EVELYN AND SUZIE MAKE US LOOK LIKE PIECES OF ISH! ENOUGH CANCEL THE SHOW HERE —-

  13. BOYCOTT BBW AND STOP THIS SHOW FROM DEPICTING BLACK WOMEN AS LOW DOWN HOODRATS!!! THIS IS ONE REASON WE ARE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BECAUSE SOME THINK WE ARE LESS THEN! THIS SHOW TRIES TO CONFIRM THAT! CANCEL IT!!!!!

  14. SUGARBROWN says:

    BYE B!TCH! and take that Sneaky Snake in the grass Executive producer Shaunie O’Neil and her lap dog Evilyn with you! The behavior of you women is truly obsurd and STOP blaming the producers for sh!t “YOU” give them to film and make public. RIDICULOUS! Eventhough last night’s episode was filmed over a month or 2 ago, after viewing that Bullying crap, Tami you should consider bodyguards for YOURSELF! That sh!t WAS NOT COOL!

  15. SUGARBROWN says:

    Oh yeah, sign the petition to end this sh!t of a show, there doesn’t need to be a season 5

    The Illuminati own$ $ Control$ “Shed Media & Vh1″…The shows are meant to “Demonize today’s society to “despise & discourage Jehovah’s plan of MARRIAGE…Ever Notice you have more “phaggots” gettin & remaining married in America??? Wake up People!!!!~KilluminatiSaidIt~

  17. I think that people should stop saying Tami is portraying woman of color in a negative way….She is nobody..She is not anyone for people to look at as an example. She married a basketball player and is now on a show..Big deal. Anyone who looks to her as an example of a strong black women is wrong and she should be ashamed of herself..Don’t give her that kind of importantance she is nothing and certainly nobody to be any example of not just a strong black women but a strong women in general….The only person who looks bad is her disgusting self, VH1 and Shaunie O’neal..If people want to look at strong women of power look at Michelle Obama, Oprah,Star Jones, LaLa Anthony (who has a respectable reality show) Jennifer Hudson, And that is just to name a few…Their are so many amazing strong black white Asian Native American Ext. Woman to let a nobody like Tami Roman have the power to make people think she is portraying any of us but her low life self…I will not give you that credit…You don’t portray me or any race…You make yourself, VH1 and that trash Shaunie O’neal look like trash…You portray nobody but yourself I will not give you that credit….

  18. The more this enitre abuse sinks in the more angry i get with the network.. they’ve proven that they absolutely only care for the almighty $$$$ and not a shit about these women lives or the ppl who view their programs because not once have i seen or heard someone of them who actually calls all the shots came out and publicly and denounce this type of behaviour…. not once. And this Tranny animal they called Tami in a woman body has all the mouth for a helplesswoman who she knows aint no rough neck but cant face the public!!!!! she deleted her twitter acct and keeps hiding… whats the matter Tranny! “where you from” you cant deal with so much talking infront your face.. your a foolish human being .. and she cant even be woman enough to give a heartfelt apology.. sorry i gues she doesnt have a heart… BIG BULLY

  19. Everyone is calling Tami a bully, not agreeing with how she handled any of her situations but did anyone stop to think about how Suzie was going back telling everything under the sun. If she would have kept her mouth close maybe Tami and Kesha could have worked their problems out. An Kesha shouldn’t scare so easily she needs to get a backbone and say what she really wants to say, because lets be honest if people smell fear they are going to pounce im just saying.
