"Basketball Wife" Tami Roman Goes In On Her Deadbeat Cheating Ex-Husband & Her Castmates

If you thought you heard the last of Tami Roman going off about her deadbeat ass ex-husband Kenny Anderson, think again.  She went on Richmond's iPower Richmond to talk more ish.  And now she's revealing just how many kids Kenny had outside their marriage, his brokeness, and how she got back on good terms with castmate Jennifer Williams.

 

Read on for Tami's dish....

 

This ish is just geting worse and worse.  So now, Tami Roman has revealed that her ex-husband Kenny Anderson hasn't paid her child support in a long while, despite his professional basketball player salary he once had, and that he had a few kids outside of their marriage.  Here's some highlights straight from Ms. Torrez of Tami talking about all that drama, her new job, plus the drama with the other girls on the show:

  • Tami says she decided to do "Basketball Wives" because she wanted to share her story because after watching the first season, she didn't think her life/journey of being a basketball wife wasn't really represented.
  • Once divorced from Kenny Anderson, Tami said she had to go on government assistance to provide for her children.
  • Kenny Anderson had not seen his two daughters with her in 10 years. Since the show aired, she says her daughters have spent time with their father but there are still communication issues that need to be solved.
  • She said she's just like everybody else and has her "moments" on the show. She said she went off on the show because behind the scenes it was brought to her that people were making jokes about her being on food stamps.
  • Tami says she and Jennifer Williams have talked their differences out and they can now be cordial to one another.
  • She said she was never bitter about the prenup because she was in love with Kenny and never thought they would be divorced. But she IS bitter about the way their marriage played out and that he didn't do the right thing after their divorce.
  • She said during her 6 year marriage with Kenny Anderson he had TWO children while they were married with his mistress.
  • She said she doesn't reach out to the other baby mothers except for DJ Spinderella (from Salt-N-Pepa) because most of the other women came about while they were married. Spinderella was with Kenny before Tami and Kenny were married.
  • She says she doesn't know if Kenny Anderson is actually broke but she knows he doesn't pay her child support.
  • She works at a finance firm now and she can provide for her daughters. She also said she's in the process of writing a book.

Karma is a mother, keep

Karma is a mother, keep trusting God and do the best you can do forget about what he did or what he's doing. Continue to provide for your girls and take the high road so that your girls don't end up with a loser like that. Show them that you can be a stronge black woman with or without a man. It can and has been done.

If u basing ur opinion about

If u basing ur opinion about her off the show than ur somethings wrong...TV doesnt show everything and from the bio's about her and about her husband THEY WERE IN LOVE...A woman doesnt sign a prenup and then complains about it later obviously she signed it because she was in love if it was all about money she a. would've of married him and b. would've had kids by him...What woman doesn't want their fathers child to take care of his kids and instead of going on shows at the time and blasting him she did what real women do and make a way for her fam...Get ur head out of the BBALL Phoney wives ass and realize that there are real women out here...

I'm sorry, but is TOO much.

I'm sorry, but is TOO much. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that she is bitter as I don't know what! You can see that in every episode she in included in. I'm glad she works for a finance company but she needs to move beyond what happened in the past. If everyone dwelled on the past and never moved beyond it, then nothing would ever get done. Now look at her, she appears to be a bitter woman (raising two daughters, who I'm sure she has said terrible things about their father in front of) who can't move past things. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh but she needs to be able to take it as much as she dishes it!

If he's a deadbeat dad, then

If he's a deadbeat dad, then he's wrong. But as someone else said, I don't see how these women could think that a wedding ring and one or more children suddenly mean that they are set for life. Where was her skill set, work experience, etc.? She knew about his cheating ways, so it may have been a good idea to get her things in order to prepare to go and be at least a bit independent financially. I just can't get on board with her. I'm not saying she didn't have a rough life, but after she got drunk and made a scene at a CHARITY EVENT, I was like, "How many MORE ghetto hoodrats are they going to put on this show?" And how can she talk about a man not doing his part when she suddenly has money for lipo?

6 Years with the man and she

6 Years with the man and she did nothing with her life other than pop two babies and try to cling on to marriage that wasn't working. Seriously she had access to his money during the marriage she could have done something useful, to further herself. do a course in college, take some classes, any classes, because at the end of the day when he leaves you he cant take away your degree and the potential that it gives you in life. His gone and she's still crying over spilt milk. how many times is she going to recycle this story! we've heard it a million times its reaching its expiry date. she need to stop being the victim and start being the survior because thats the only way she's going to get some damn respect.

I like Tami. Good for her

I like Tami. Good for her and I wish her much success. I hope that she can move on positively from the tribulations of her marriage. If you want to talk about "ghetto" and immature, Evelyn is the poster child. Jennifer brags about not being "ghetto", but her obviously very low self-esteem is just as bad. I've never seen such age mature women that are so messy and uncouth.

lol Sorry, but these girls

lol Sorry, but these girls chase after these athletes thinking it's gonna be a lavish fairytale, but then when reality hits they're crying. Of course Kenny's broke...most of them are barely holding on while their in the league. The lavish parties, gambling, women, children, entourage, hotels, trips, ect. cost big money. Stop chasing these illusions ladies. You'd be better off finding yourself a successful man with a career that actually has longevity & benefits leave them ballers alone lol

What I don't understand is

What I don't understand is that there is no attorney general in the U.S. that would let dude pay $0.00 on child support unless she never filed on him. Even if you don't have a job they will make you either come up with something or go to Jail. Her story don't smell right to me because I know for a fact several dudes that didnt have two nickles to rub together and the judge was like you either get a job or go to jail!
Anonymous's picture

Go to your state child supprt

Go to your state child supprt site and see all the men and women who owe 6 figures. The Attorney General will go after you when and if they can. They are backlogged so it's not rare at all even if he is in the public eye and unless he's in a state that makes the spouse pay your support all he has to do is put it in his mama's name and/or wife.

I really do not think she is

I really do not think she is any more hood than anyone else&as for food stamps, my mom went to NYU on food stamps&if she was always working to get off PA she should do nothing but hold her head up high. My mom finished her Masters @ NYU&has never had to be on it again...now she just gets to pay these hellafied taxes. She should sue him for all that back child support, that is not her money...it is the kid's money.

@Sonia that is sooo true. A lot of prominent black professional women I know grew up in the hood or in the country with little to no resources other than family and education. By their demeanor, I would have thought they grew up with butlers and maids. Put Tami is stuck in victim mode and she is getting paid for it.
