Basketball Wives has caused quite a stir this season, entertaining some and disgracing others with its weekly dose of cat fights, crying fits and cold-hearted backstabbing.
One of the breakout stars of the series, Tami Roman, has enjoyed unprecedented notoriety this season, largely due to her explosive arguments with frenemy Evelyn Lozada and her physical fight with castmate Meeka Claxton.
The reality star, who also appeared on Real World: Los Angeles, covers the new issue of Rolling Out Magazine where she delves deep into her portrayal on the hit VH1 show. Check out an excerpt below:
I think that the producers have done a fantastic job of blowing out of proportion one aspect of my personality. Now I’m not going to say that it’s the editing, and I’m not going to try and blame it on anything else, because Tami will go off on you [laughs] … that is a part of my personality. Whether you like it or not, I’m going to tell you the truth because I feel like everybody should be able to deal with the truth. That way, you can know what you’re dealing with. I’ve always been a big fan of that, of honesty and loyalty. So while what you see on TV is a part of my personality, it’s not all of who I am. I think that the audience who watches “Basketball Wives” is only seeing that aspect of my personality 100 percent magnified. They don’t see me working with my charity, and they didn’t see me when I was a part of corporate America going to work in a business suit every day. And they don’t see me with my mother, or me with my dude. There’s so much about me that you don’t see because that’s not what “Basketball Wives” wants to show.
