“God Don’t Like Ugly”: Tami Roman Says A Reportedly Broke & Homeless Eric Williams Is Facing Karma After Mistreating Jennifer
We told you earlier this week that Eric Williams, former NBA star and ex-husband of former Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams, claimed that he had fallen on hard times and can’t afford to pay his past due child support. Not only did Williams say that he has no home (“[The]court-ordered citation for me to appear was not delivered to my home address as I have no home”), but he also claimed that he’s so broke, he can’t afford a lawyer to handle this situation or to appear at scheduled court dates. Williams says that he’s in the “rebuilding stages” and trying to get his life back together.
While many people don’t believe that a man who was once making millions and played for 12 seasons now can’t even afford to show his face in court, Basketball Wives star Tami Roman says she’s not surprised, because that’s how karma is.
She told TMZ that she understands what he’s going through when it comes to being homeless “because I have been there, but clearly God doesn’t like ugly.”
She also says that while Eric is struggling, the ex-wife he mistreated and threw alcohol in the face of is doing big things.
“Meanwhile, my girl Jen is being a beauty enjoying her new life and loving her new life.”
This is all very interesting coming from Tami Roman of all people. If you’ll recall, Roman was quite the Evilene during past seasons of Basketball Wives. She physically attacked and threatened her cast mates, and was quite the bully (remember the purse stealing incident?). So for her to say that “God don’t like ugly” is kind of a joke. But hey, you live and you learn, and maybe she has.
But what do you think about Eric playing the broke and homeless card, and Roman’s response to his circumstances?
In other reality TV news, former “Basketball Wives” star Tami Roman was recently hospitalized. The mother of two broke the news to concerned fans yesterday via Instagram.
“You know I hate hospitals, but I’m here,” the 43-year-old New York native wrote. “Sneaking on this phone to let everyone know I’m ok and thank you all for the well wishes. Be home soon.”
She also offered thanks to friends and family members for their kind gestures.
“Thank you to all the family and friends for the get well wishes, prayers and flowers. I’ll be home soon!”
According the The YBF, Tami’s publicist says she was rushed to the hospital after fainting due to dehydration related to her diabetes diagnosis.
“Tami is rehabilitating at a private hospital in Houston and is expected to make a full recovery,” her rep explained in an issued statement. “Tami is currently filming two TV shows, traveling back and forth between Houston & Los Angeles so her body became overwhelmed.”
Get well soon, Tami!
“Basketball Wives Miami” may be a thing of the past, but reality TV veteran Tami Roman has big plans to return to the small screen with yet another reality show.
The mother of two recently began filming a pilot in Houston for her new series, “The Roman Empire,” which The Jasmine Brand reports will feature her two daughters, Lyric and Jazz.
“We are taping this week for an hour pilot and then going forward from there,” the former “Basketball Wives” star recently told the Chicago Tribune.
She went on to say that the show will be a VH1 production and that the storyline will center around her life.
“My focus is getting this storyline about my life in development and making it something VH1 is proud of and brings in viewers.”
In addition to a new reality show, Tami says she’ll also be starring in a new series for CBS soon.
“I have a TV show coming this summer that CBS has asked us not to talk about. It’s with a very well-known and respected Academy Award-winning star. People get to see me back in the lane I was in before returning to reality TV.”
So far no premiere dates have been confirmed.
Do you think you’d be interested in seeing Tami’s reality show?
Earlier this month we told you that rapper The Game was being courted by VH1 to participate in some capacity in the debut season of “Love & Hip Hop LA.” Since The Game jumped into world of reality TV as a package deal with “Marrying The Game” co-star and on-again, off-again fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, some naturally assumed that Tiffney would also be joining the cast of “Love & Hip Hop LA” with him. It turns out those assumptions were wrong.
“I cannot confirm this [Game's LHHLA involvement] as this is not something that Tiffney is involved in,” Tiffney’s publicist told Mara The Hip Hop Socialite. “There is no confirmation of any shows involving my client at this time.”
This isn’t completely surprising, as it looks like Tiffney and The Game have broken up, yet again. If you recall, earlier this month we told you that the former G-Unit rapper attacked Tiffney’s friend and fellow reality star, Tami Roman, via Instagram. According to his posts, Tami was to blame for the demise of their relationship.
“I hope you and that d*ke b**ch blue burn in hell for ruining my family!!!!!” he wrote beneath one of Tami’s photos.”Ya’ll f**king with the wrong ni**a!!!”
“Go ahead and block me & erase this b**ch!!!” he continued. “That ain’t gonna change nothing or what I”m about to do!”
It’s still unclear exactly what The Game believes Tami has done to “ruin” his family and Tiffney’s rep declined to comment on his outburst.
“At this time I have no comment. Tiffney is really trying to continue on her positive endeavors and not feed into negativity and rumors.”
So much for that. Do you thin Tiffney would’ve been a good fit for “Love & Hip Hop LA”?
While most of us were still trying to wrap our minds around the idea of The Game possibly starring on Love and Hip Hop LA, it seems that he was busy calling Tami Roman everything but a child of God on Instagram. And not on his Instagram, but according to Necole Bitchie, on Roman’s Instagram. He allegedly wrote this in the comment section of one of her pictures:
I hope you and that d*ke b**ch blue burn in hell for ruining my family!!!!! Ya’ll f**king with the wrong ni**a!!!
Go ahead and block me & erase this b**ch!!! That ain’t gonna change nothing or what I”m about to do!
And here are the actual comments below courtesy of Necole Bitchie:
Not sure what his ranting messages even mean, but neither Cambridge, nor Roman, who are good friends, have responded directly to these statements. Ironically, a few weeks ago, someone commented on a picture Cambridge reposted, which showed that Roman had picked her as a “woman crush” for “woman crush Wednesday.” The person tried to ask Tiffney if she or Tami were bisexual (“Les b honest ? Bi?”). Creeping on her Instagram, The Game checked the follower by saying, “watch yo f**kin mouth.” Roman also jumped on the post and said the following:
So to hear him calling folks the d-word all of a sudden is crazy. On a side note, after his rant, The Game posted an image on his Instagram that said “SINGLE.” But if we can keep it real…I don’t think anyone could ruin The Game and Cambridge’s relationship but him and her. After watching their reality show and seeing how absolutely NOT serious he was about walking down the aisle with her when that’s clearly what Cambridge wanted, I don’t know how he thought they were going to make things work for the long run. Either way, we’re surprised at this outburst.
If it wasn’t for reality television, we would probably never have known them (or at least as not as well as we do now) but these reality stars decided to turn up their noses on the very thing that made them famous or resurrected their careers.
Tia and Tamera Mowry
Identical twins Tia and Tamera Mowry first gained fame as twin teens separated at birth on the sitcom “Sister, Sister.” The twins took a break from Hollywood to attend college before resurrecting their acting careers again. For six seasons, Tia played Melanie Barnett Davis on the hit show “The Game” but the sisters would work together again with their reality show “Tia & Tamera” on the Style Network. The show premiered to record numbers on the network but as each season passed so did its popularity and it was canned at the end of 2013, although according to them it was time to them to get back to living their lives off camera.

John Salley is probably one of the only people on the planet who was sad about the “Basketball Wives” reunion show being cancelled. During a recent interview with The Jasmine Brand, the retired NBA star dished on which burning questions he never got to ask the ladies, Evelyn Lozada’s pregnancy and his girl Tami Roman—whom he praises as the ultimate reality star.
“I thought the show [Basketball Wives] was cool,” said Salley. “But when my girl Tami got on the show, it took it to another level. I watch her as a professional reality television star and if anybody knows what I’m talking about, watch Tami. From ‘Real World’ to now, this chick has been the most entertaining and education I have ever seen in television—Tami Roman”
When asked if he thought she topped Kim Kardashian, the Brooklyn native made it clear that there’s no contest.
“Yeah [over Kim K.] because Kim Kardashian doesn’t really say anything—there’s her mom and the whole family. But when you deal with someone who actually knows how to bring you into their lives and how to keep you there—nobody but Tami Roman could do that.”
As for whether or not Tami deserves her own spin-off, John says absolutely!
“Yeah, I wanna see the Tami Roman… she and her daughters—I mean that life has to be the most interesting life, black white, or purple.”
He was also pretty excited to learn about Evelyn Lozada’s pregnancy, despite it being the cause of the reunion show taping being canceled.
“It’s part of the game, but I was really disappointed,” said John.
“But I’m happy for Evelyn,” he continued. “That’s my dog. When I saw she was pregnant and she’s smiling—I’m following her on Instagram. That’s my dog, so I’m just happy for her.”

Celebrities are often paid thousands of dollars to lend their notable faces for the endorsement of popular products and beauty services, but these business-minded beauties have decided to go after much larger pieces of the pie by going into business for themselves and establishing their own product lines and brands.
Well folks, the skin bleaching police are on the loose again. Just last month we told you that Love & Hip Hop star K. Michelle was being accused of bleaching her skin. This time they’re going after Basketball Wives’ Tami Roman. It’s unclear exactly when the rumors actually began, but it appears that they were triggered by a few recent photos shared to the reality star’s Instagram page, in which she looks a lot lighter than she did back when she emerged on the Basketball Wives scene. Fans also pointed out the drastic difference from how she looks now in comparison to how she looked during her Real World days. Once Twitter users caught wind of the rumors, they showed no mercy.
“Tami looking like Bella from ‘Twilight,’” wrote one tweeter.
“Tami went full LaToya Jackson. SMDH, she was naturally beautiful. This is so unnecessary,” said another.
“Why Tami out here looking like a ghost?” another fan questioned.
While some fans instantly assumed that Tami bleached her skin, others reasoned that her lighter appearance was probably due to her use of the wrong kind of makeup.
“Tami got a whole shelf of white woman foundation on her face,” added one tweeter.
In Tami’s defense, it’s also possible that she has been using an Instagram filter that makes her photos appear lighter.
What do you think? Is Tami bleaching her skin or are folks going overboard as usual?

“The only one that I’m friends with is Shaunie [O’Neal]. I may talk to Suzie [Ketcham] from time to time. I don’t tell her any secrets or anything like that. I’m just at a point in my life where I just really want real friends. I don’t want the fake, part-time friends. I’m too grown for that.”Many of you got a kick out of her statement. And honestly, I can’t blame you. I mean, it’s pretty ironic that the ring leader of the mean girls, who acted as the gatekeeper of “the circle,” constantly dictating who was in and who was out, all of a sudden wants real friends. Though I was thoroughly amused by the irony of it all, in the same breath, I have to confess that I also understood where she was coming from. As women, our lives are filled with plenty of acquaintances and whether we want to admit it or not, many of us are unknowingly a part of numerous social circles. We have our work “friends,” our neighborhood “friends,” our college “friends,” our church “friends” and so on. Often times, it’s not until we’re really going through something, until we really need someone to confide in, until we need a sincere ear to listen to our problems without passing judgement on us, do we realize that although we’re constantly surrounded by these female acquaintances, very rarely can we actually call any of them friends and really mean it.
“Of course, we may have friends who fit all these criteria and still don’t quite feel kenzoku (A Japanese term that suggests a bond between people who’ve made a similar commitment and who possibly therefore share a similar destiny. It implies the presence of the deepest connection ofIn this way, I don’t think any of us are that different from Evelyn. Those of us who have been blessed with real friends more than likely cherish them and those of us who don’t have them would like to (even though we may not always like to admit it). And while these bonds can’t be forced, as Alex notes, we can prepare for them by first becoming true friends ourselves. How many true friends have you been blessed with? What makes those friendships different from your other relationships? Follow Jazmine on Twitter , of lives lived as comrades from the distant past). There still seems to be an extra factor, an attraction similar to that which draws people together romantically, that cements friends together irrevocably, often immediately, for no reason either person can identify. But when you find these people, these kenzoku, they’re like priceless gems. They’re like finding home,” Alex wrote.@jazminedenise.
