Tami Roman’s New Look Confuses Fans with This Rap Diva

While gearing up for season 8 of “Basketball Wives,” reality star Tami Roman has a new look to go along with the new season.

The @BBWtea page posted a clip of Roman during the production of the franchise. “#TamiRoman Out Here WORKING!🙌🏼😍#GetThatCoinSis! #BasketBallWives #BBWLA,” the caption read.

Roman rocked a sequined see-through jumpsuit, a blond half-up, half-down frontal, and a beat face. The 49-year-old mother of two, who doesn’t look like she’s aged at all, had some fans comparing her look to that of rap diva Nicki Minaj.

“I legit thought this was Nicki Minaj,” one fan wrote.

“Pretty sure she’s doing something for Nicki.”

“Thought this was Nicki I looked to quick lol.”

However, not everyone was feeling Roman’s look, and one user even speculated that she was having a midlife crisis.

 “She looks like RuPaul 😂😂,” a social media user joked.


“🤔 Is it a mid-life crisis!”

Welp! It looks like for some, it was either a hit or miss for the VH1 reality star. This isn’t the first time fans were taken aback by Roman’s look. Before the seemingly Minaj look, the former “Real World” star did a photo shoot with Upscale magazine. Roman posted a photo of herself rocking a platinum-blond wig, huge diamond cross earrings, and a metallic bustier. The theme of the picture represented her alter-ego Tatiana Trill.

“Self-made, that’s how I’m designed” @iamtatianatrill for @upscalemagazine#TatianaTrill #NoPressure GO FOLLOW @iamtatianatrill 👅 @winniestackz @jstayready_@star4makeup@juliamindar_photography,” Roman’s caption read.

While fans weren’t feeling her new look for the taping of “BBW,” they seemed rather pleased with her photoshoot for Upscale.

“IT’S BLACK WONDER WOMAN…and I’m here for it 😍😍😍,” one fan wrote.

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star Cynthia Bailey also chimed in and complimented Roman’s look. “Now wait for a minute super model!!!!,” she said.

Roman has a reason to show off her new look. Reportedly, Roman secretly tied the knot with her 32-year-old boyfriend Reggie Youngblood in a Las Vegas ceremony shortly after obtaining a marriage license on August 17, 2018.

The pair appeared on “Marriage Boot Camp” during season 5 that featured all reality stars. Roman was formerly married to NBA star Kenny Anderson from 1994 to 2001. They share two daughters, Lyric and Jazz Anderson.
