Tami Roman is once again throwing her hat into the acting ring. The Basketball Wives star is shopping around a pilot titled The Assist, which she shot with singer Brooke Valentine, basketball player Nick Young, and fellow reality star Paris Phillips.
The half-hour comedy finds Tami playing a publicist who works for an NBA superstar, a role she says she’s more than prepared for given her seven year marriage to former NBA player Kenny Anderson. “This was an amazing character for me to play,” Tami told fans via Facebook. “She’s fully in control, not the girlfriend, not the ex-girlfriend, not the baby mama; I’m kind of the boss over the boss on the show.”
Actress Elise Neal and reality TV star Tami Roman are gearing up for the premiere of their new television show ‘Belle’s,’ which is officially scheduled to hit the airwaves on January 21st.
The show revolves around a southern family who own and operate an upscale soul food restaurant, and costars Ella Joyce, Migue Nunez, Nadja Alaya and Keith David.
TV One has released several clips from show, one of which you can check out below.
Drama! Drama! Drama! Basketball wife Meeka Claxton is suing basketball ex-wife Tami Roman. According to published reports, Meeka claims she was assaulted by Tami while vacationing in Italy and shooting scenes for their VH1 reality series ‘Basketball Wives.’ The incident reportedly happened last month and yes, is the same incident that will be seen on next week’s episode.
In the lawsuit, Meeka alleges Tami assaulted, beat, threatened, battered, thrashed, punched and shoved her- causing serious bodily injury. Meeka also alleges the assault caused her to miss a day of taping on ‘Basketball Wives,’ thus causing her to violate her contract with VH1.
Meeka is seeking unspecified damages for “emotional and physical hell”. Tami has yet to respond publicly to the lawsuit.
Reality show veteran Tami Roman had “Smart Lipo” on last week’s episode of “Basketball Wives.” The 39 year old mother of two says she has struggled with body image issues for years and despite eating right and exercising, cannot seem to get her body the way she wants it. For those of you who watched Tami when she was on the Real World nearly 20 years ago, you know that even back then she was taking drastic measures to lose weight. At the tender age of only 21 the 5 feet 9 former beauty queen had her mouth wired shut in order to curb her ability to eat solid foods.
Since allowing her lipo to be featured on “Basketball Wives,” Tami says she has been accused of having self esteem issues. She denies the claim however and insists that her desire for lipo was motivated by her need for “extra help” to achieve her fitness goals.
