Normally news like this would make me say stick to your day job but knowing how Tami pays the bills and after her ratchetness on “Basketball Wives” last night, I think I’d just like her to completely disappear.
In her ongoing quest to expand her “empire,” Tami Roman is branching out from being more than a reality TV star, T-shirt creator, and Sister 2 Sister columnist to a full fledged author. Yes, brace. In an interview with Rolling Out she explained the concept for a new book she plans to release soon:
“The book is called Mistress One on One and it basically shares tidbits for women on how to keep your man. We have a lot of infidelity going on and I sat down with some women who have been classified as the other woman so I got a chance to pick their brain and use their secret advice to help other women. It’s not necessarily a self-help book but more so how to be wise and not stupid.”
I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have teach me how to keep my man at home than women who give men a place to lay their heads and their pipe when they stray. Seriously, how does this even sound like a good idea?
When asked about returning for a potential season 5 of “Basketball Wives” (if boycotters don’t shut that down first), Tami said she’ll only return if she has something of substance to bring to the show. I think I speak for everyone when I ask why she waited this long to feel that way. Anyway, she will still be on TV though, but this time in a scripted show rather than a reality series.
“I just signed on to be one of the new cast members for a new TV show called ‘Belle’ with TV One which should be out this summer. It stars Ella Joyce from the hit TV series “Roc” and the beautiful Elise Neal from the D.L. Hughley show [‘The Hughleys”] and the legendary Keith David. My book is coming and I’m also the new face of Bronner Brothers Products.”
One thing I will say is when Tami isn’t being an ignorant, belligerent mess she is hilarious. Maybe she’ll find her non-ratchet lane in scripted television. Or maybe not.
What do you think about Tami’s new book and TV deals?
