Tami Roman Dishes On Being a B.I.T.C.H., Suing Evelyn Lozada, And Why She's Back On "BBW3"

 

Tami Roman stopped by WBLS in NYC earlier this week to chat with radio personality Egypt.  The two ladies talked about what's coming up on  "BBW3" and about her new book, The B.I.T.C.H. Chronicles.  Get the highlights inside.....

During their interview, Egypt reminded listeners that Tami Roman was on MTV's "The Real World" back when reality tv was in its infant stages, and she asked her why she decided to return. 

Tami told listeners that her purpose for doing "BBW2" (and "BBW3") was to show that world the "other" side of being a basketball wife.  Through her story, viewers saw that the marriages don't always work, the money doesn't always last and sometimes there are some hard struggles.   

During one funny moment, a listener asked her how she could possibly work with Evelyn Lozada and Tami's classic response was "....a VH1 paycheck."

And she did briefly mention that she filed a lawsuit against Evelyn but said she could not talk about it because producers want that story to unfold on the show.  But according to Tami, the lawsuit is the real deal. 

During another funny moment, when a caller mention that it seemed like Tami had a drinking problem, Tami said the problem was that she wasn't in her lane.  She told her, "I'm a beer drinker."  She added that all the fancy mixed cocktails didn't sit well with her.

She also spoke about her upcoming book, tentatively titled The B.I.T.C.H. Chronicles.  For Tami, it means Believing In Total And Complete Honesty.  She says the "B" word used to send her over the edge so she wrote this book to turn the word into something a bit more positive.  Oh...

Do you guys remember Tami

Do you guys remember Tami from Real World LA? On that show she 1. HAd her jaw wired shut to lose weight 2. Had an abortion on camera 3. Screamed that she was raped when a castmate played a joke by pulling a blanket off her At first, I had no idea this was the same woman who had one of the first abortions on camera and then in the same month, had her jaw literally wired shut just to lose weight, but it is (google it). Tami Roman was a psycho then and apparently, she's a psycho now. I remember how unlikeable she was then, bullying a castmate for having AIDS (he died shortly thereafter), having another castmate kicked off the show for pulling her blanket (And claiming that this prank was akin to RAPE?). She is not only purely narcissistic but purely evil and I remember a lot of people were theorizing that she was a sociopath (borderline personality disorder) at the time. The more things change...

People might think I'm crazy, but I think Jen is so very beautiful...Creepy contacts and all! She also seems like an OK human being. Any way, my friends have advised me to stay away from this messy show. I just might have to...and stop "rubber-necking" at this train wreck. (But we all know most people secretly rubber-neck). Sigh. I must do better.

I like Tami...........she

I like Tami...........she truly is keeping it real, but in a non ghetto way. She went ghetto hoodish last season when she got drunk at some function and started arguing about food stamps with Jennifer, but since then she seems to have cleaned it up. She's very articulate. I like how she came at Evelyn over her t-shirt donations and why she did not want to accept it.

Tami is the ONLY ONE keeping

Tami is the ONLY ONE keeping it RAW right now. (keeping it real is still being fake and phony) That Meeka chick--- she is a 3-faced babbling phony plastic female! From what I'm seeing on the new season everyone slowly but surely is finding that out. She is one of those chicks that is desperate to be down with the crew so instead of her being neutral she's finding out who don't like who and bashing that person (royce) to get in where she want to fit in AKA Thirsty, fake, 3face frenemy! They need to get rid of that other white(spanish)chick the one with the massive overbite like she still suck her thumb (or something else!). Tami is keeping it raw right now and that evelyn better watch her front and her back-- Tami gonna whip that tramp's ass back to the Bronx!!!

I like Tami on this show and hope she beats the hell out of Evelyn. Evelyn is fake and her outer beauty is wasted on her evil a@#. Jennifer has finally made a stand and is thinking on her own. Suzi (yawn), Royce needs to grow up quick. She is right for not liking Evelyn and Jenn after the way they treated her fashion show appearance. Meeka is a hot a@# mess. Not a nice girl.

You got mob wives, jersey, New York, la & orange county housewives - who r all white and all of them act a fool. Only a fool would judge u based on charters from a reality tv. So all races have fools - and if your self esteem is that low to think that way. I feel sorry for you. I watch those shows and I’m black – no one has ever linked me to those shows.

YAWN! I'm so SICK of shows

YAWN! I'm so SICK of shows like this. Shaunie O'Neal should be ashamed of herself. This show plays to every type of racial and gender stereotype and I hate it when people think this is an acceptable way to make a living. I don't watch this show but I've seen these violent and tacky exchanges between these women and its disgraceful. I'm very aware that most reality shows are under the impression that violence and fighting bring in viewers but seeing black women behave like diseased alley cats is more harmful than anything. And to know that a "black woman" is producing this show is more than disappointing. Shaunie O'Neal is worst than Tyler Perry because there is nothing redeemable here. And sorry this notion that a Vh-1 paycheck is worth this type of degradation is beyond SAD! But again there are too many people who enjoy this type of stupidity and as long as that exists so will these types of shows. I just wish women would empower themselves in better ways.....like making sure this show does not return for another season.

Hey Furious :-) I largely

Hey Furious :-) I largely agree with your post (imagine that). I don't watch BBW-I have only seen 2 episodes because of all the hype and because people I know watch it & want to discuss it. But I DVR it and then fast-forward through most of the scenes tbecause watching women of color behave that way turns my stomach. At the same time, though--we can't take everything personally. I know I'm better than that--don't carry on like that, and I'm sure you're better than that too. Yet I am CAPABLE of wilding out if someone crosses the line with me--which is a rare occurrence. Also, note that you can turn to ANY Real Housewives show, or Mob Wives--any show with flame-retardant plastic-white women and hear far WORSE profanity and more drag-out fights. In fact, the most obnoxious person on BBW is Evelyn and she's not black. Well--Royce ain't much better...still, its TV and anyone who uses that show as an excuse to be a racist is an idiot. They can't paint us all with the same hateful brush--especially when our Prez and First Lady are FAB examples of us. Holla!
Godiva-Diva--Obama 2012!!!'s picture

Godiva for President!!!! This

Godiva for President!!!! This is the second post of yours that I'm in full agreement with. ^5! You're right. You know Michelle Obama gives me that. She's so sophisticated and elegant but at the same time if Obama was into sexting or did something like Bill Clinton we ALL know Michelle would NOT HAVE it. I think that is what makes us strong black women. Just the hint of danger. But we're smart and we wage wars in different ways in 2011. I just wish a show reflected those subtle nuances better. I recently met Phylicia Rashad and we asked her about TV shows today. She was reading! She said she did not watch them because they don't speak to her they YELLED at her and she's not the type of person who responds well to that. I was laughing so hard. The character of Claire Huxtable was so FIERCE and Modern. That type of show and love won't ever come again because people find that boring compared to most reality shows. But hearing you speak I know anything is possible and that we are smarter than they TRY to portray us. Even if we are the ones behinds such shows! Like my girl Erykah Badu sang on Solider.... "We gone keep marchin' on Until you hear dat freedom song And if you think about turning back I got the shotgun on ya back And if you think about turning back I got the shot gun on ya back BLLAAAA (BLAT!)"

@Furious: cyber-hugs Boo! Yes

@Furious: cyber-hugs Boo! Yes I totally agree: we as black women need to be more adamant about projective positive images of ourselves into the mainstream, and making sure that our charismatic ways and our strength are viewed as-in: not interpreted into bitchiness. but bear in mind that American society will always keep a lid on positive images of black-folk: they like to keep turmoil and racism going in an effort to help white America feel good about itself. All is well--we know who we are...and that's why we need to represent when no cameras are around. Ya know--when dealing with people who believe everything they see on TV and try to disrespect us. We need to check them IMMEDIATELY and mellow their a$$e$ right on out. G'Nite-I'm escaping from jail (work) now. :-)

Go TAMI! (I can't see video, blocked at work). She's getting back to work and not lowering her ethics to do it. Evelyn deserves to be slapped by trying to profit off the statement that was hurtful and mean. She's not marrying Ocho Cinco nor anyone else in the NBA/NFL because she's plaything. Good arm piece and probably gives good head. Tami is doing her for the sake of her girls so I can't knock her hustle. Meeka, Susie, Shawnie and Jen are on SNOOZE. Now Royce is a lil firecracker!
