“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?

Evelyn Lozada recently opened up to OK! Magazine about her desire for sincere friendship. The hot-blooded reality star expressed that although she has plenty of superficial part-time friends, she’s at a point in her life where she just wants solid friendships.
“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.
If I can compare Evelyn’s mirage of friends to anything in my own life, it would unfortunately have to be my “church friends.” We worship together. We fellowship with one another. We pray together. We support each other. Genuinely. But when I found myself dealing with some serious challenges in my life–you know, those real life-altering challenges that only sincere, unconditional love and support can help you to get through–I came to the sad realization that I wasn’t 100 percent comfortable with completely opening up to any of them. There I was, just like Evelyn, with this massive social circle and unable to call on one solid friend in my time of need. This certainly is not to say that there’s anything wrong with these women, it’s just that true friendship is indeed hard to come by. It’s not something that can be forced, rushed or summoned. So when Evelyn says that she’s ready for real friends, I get it.
I remember being about 8 years old and bragging to my mother about how many best friends I had. I’d named at least 10 girls from my fourth grade class before my mother began laughing to herself. You know, that kind of laugh older women do as if to say, “Child, you have a lot to learn.” I stopped mid-sentence and looked at her, wondering what was so funny. She simply responded that I’d be lucky if I have two good friends by the time I left college. I didn’t get it then, but I certainly understand it now.
Alex Lickerman of Psychology Today compares true friendship to romantic attraction. Though common interests, values, history, commitment, principles and equality are crucial to setting the groundwork for solid friendships, there’s an additional unknown factor that seems to hold these bonds together.
“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 of, 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.
In 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?

Celebrities put their names on just about anything and makeup lines are no exception. From “Basketball Wives” to supermodels and singers — everyone is getting in on the beauty business with their own brand of cosmetics. Here are 15 celebrity makeup lines we’d consider to beat our face.
Vidalux Cosmetics by Evelyn Lozada features different lip glosses, lipsticks, bronzers, eye shadows, liners, blushes and more. The line is fun and colorful and Evelyn’s beautiful daughter Shaunice serves as the spokesmodel for the website.
I’m not sure if you were waiting around for it. If you were, we’re very sorry to disappoint you, but it looks like a Basketball Wives reunion show won’t be happening this season.
According to TMZ, as producers were getting everything together for the taping, they came to a pretty major fork in the road. One of the show’s leading cast members, Evelyn Lozada, reportedly pulled out and refused to film. Sources close to the situation say that Ev decided to skip the reunion because she was sick of talking about her domestic violence incident and divorce from ex-husband, Chad Ochocinco, and she knew that the scandal would be one of the major topics of the reunion. The source went on to say that since the show’s remaining cast members like Tami, Suzie, Tasha and Shaunie didn’t have much to talk about, producers felt it would be a waste of time and money to film the hour-long special. As a result they reportedly canceled it and decided not to reschedule. We certainly can’t blame them. Who wants to watch a show about nothing?
Anyway, the insider added that Evelyn is ready to move beyond the cattiness of Basketball Wives and get on with her life. It looks like she may have been right about carrying the show. If you recall, back in September Evelyn boasted that she was definitely ready for her own reality show because she pretty much carried Basketball Wives herself.
“I know I can carry my own show, pretty much carried this one,” she said.
Though many found her statement to be a little arrogant and borderline obnoxious, maybe she’s on to something. I mean, it’s not everyday that an entire reunion show gets canceled because one cast member decided to pull out. But then again, Basketball Wives was pretty much on its last leg anyway. VH1 has yet to officially confirm these reports, but chances are that if the show was happening, VH1 would have aired promo videos for it by now.
Were you kind of looking forward to the Basketball Wives reunion show or did it not make a difference to you either way?
