Tami Roman Says With God’s Help, “I Looked At Myself & Knew I Needed To Make Changes”
Tami Roman has come a long way. After many a year of arguing with and even physically fighting her co-stars on Basketball Wives, Tami Roman is tired — and turning over a new leaf to change that. If you watched the second half of the season, then you know that Roman stopped spending time spilling tea with her co-stars, and instead, opted to enjoy the company of her daughters and long-time boyfriend, Reggie. She avoided the group trip to Amsterdam (great idea, because it ended up being a total sh-t show), and after sitting through enough shenanigans at the reunion, she walked out early and seemingly, away from the series altogether.
We know that she was seeking counsel from Pastor John Gray this season, changed her eating habits due to diabetes, and as she received different opportunities (including her Bonnet Chronicles show on Tidal, a spin-off of Basketball Wives and different hosting and acting gigs), she no longer was interested in dealing in drama. She spoke about the changes she’s made recently on Instagram while sharing a video of Tina Turner speaking about the improvements she made to herself in order to have success in her career.
“I saw this interview and it spoke to me! This is me right now. I looked at myself & knew I needed to make changes-spiritually, mentally, physically, in business affairs, in all my relationships and life in general -critics, trolls & fake folks will try to keep me in a box & continue to spew negativity. But God!” she wrote. “I know the work I’ve done, the positive changes I’ve made and I’m going to uplift myself. Get Into the new new because I personally am enjoying her.”
She recently told Pastor Gray about how she wanted to get away from the persona people associate with her because of Basketball Wives, not only because of how it’s impacted her, but also because of how it has hurt her girls.
“I’m unhappy because people just see me one way. And that’s not to say ‘that’s not who I am,’ but it’s not only me,” she said. “I have been battling with what’s making my lifestyle comfortable, but that hasn’t actually been making me, as a person on the inside, comfortable.”
She added, “I don’t want to not be able to provide for my children, but now when I try to go out and have other opportunities and other revenue streams, people don’t want that girl associated with their projects. And it hurts my daughters that people think of me a certain way.”
