Tami Roman must have come across Kesha Nichol’s exclusive interview with Juicy Magazine because she wrote a blog post the same day to address the beef with her “Basketball Wives” co-star, and well, from the title of “B****, B****, AND MORE B****,” you can see where this is going.
Tami not only gets on Kesha—again—for not coming directly to her about any issues she had, but she also says Kesha blew the whole “you’re not black enough” thing out of proportion, especially since Tami is mixed too(?). I don’t know ya’ll, here’s part of what she said:
“Do me a favor, don’t be such a liar and manipulator. I know you have friends in high ‘Executive Producer’ places, but let’s keep this all the way real. When I met you, I approached you in a friendly manner and I did not have any issues with you what so ever. Everyone in this situation knows I was told you were Caucasian, so when I met you that is why I asked you. In that same conversation (which was edited out), upon hearing your answer, I said that I thought you were mixed but wasn’t sure of what it was – to be exact, my verbiage was, “I knew there was something else in you.” I wish you had been woman enough to ask me if I thought you were denying your “black” side and I would have cleared that right up for you. On the contrary, my saying that I thought you were mixed with something was in fact ACKNOWLEDGING that you may be of African American decent. I am a product of mixed heritage and identify myself as a black woman also. I NEVER said you weren’t “black” enough… that is a flat out lie! I would NEVER try to belittle someone for that and I don’t appreciate you implying that I would.”
Tami adds that when she first met Kesha, she specifically asked her to discuss any problems she had with her directly and since Kesha didn’t do that, Tami implies she was right to blow up. The she adds this little sidebar:
“I am NOT a bully. People don’t understand that Keisha (sic) is NOT innocent in this matter and she does a great deal of lip boxing behind the scenes. I am not going to try and be respectful when I have been disrespected numerous times…off camera. If you are bold enough to talk behind my back, then you should be grown enough to handle the repercussions of your actions and words. The editors have done a wonderful job of putting my outbursts on the show but not showing the full chain of events. My outbursts are real, but they are also driven by something which is conveniently being edited out when it comes to Keisha (sic). Wish I had an executive producer in my pocket…I’m just saying.”
I don’t think Tami knows the difference between talking behind someone’s back and asking someone’s friend for advice on how they should approach them with a touchy subject. That’s all Kesha was asking in my opinion, and she should be mad at Evelyn for telling Tami before her in the first place. Tami also has some choice words for Jen and Royce in her latest post, so these three might be full on beefing soon too. Sigh.
Does Tami’s blog post clear up her reaction or does she still seem crazy as ever?
