So there we were during the holiday break, on Instagram, scrolling through the explore page when we ran across someone, obviously well-known, with a cascade of blonde curls down her back, thigh-high boots with a whole lot of behind peeking out of her dress while sitting on a stool. Imagine our shock when we clicked on the image and found it was Tami Roman of all people.

But not necessarily. It is Roman’s new alter ego, or project, Tatiana Trill. She didn’t offer up what the project was about, but she did tell fans, “we’re about to have a gooood time.”

This whole thing is a far cry from the comical Bonnet Chronicles series she has (which streams on Tidal), as well as her time on Basketball Wives, but the 48-year-old made it clear after last year’s tumultuous season that she was ready to move on to other pursuits.

“I enjoy doing the show. However I do have other opportunities that I have prayed for and God blessed me to have,” she said in the summer. “It wouldn’t behoove me to disrespect his grace. I’m in no way unappreciative of BBW, I’m just thankful & protective of all the opportunities outside of it.”

She also said earlier in 2018 that it was time for people to see a different side of her, which she’s hoping to show on the Basketball Wives spin-off she reportedly has in the works with VH1.

“I’m thankful that the spin-off is coming now because I get to show the many different facets and dimensions that aren’t actually seen on Basketball Wives, she said. “You know I have this great guy, I have great children, I have a great career, I do a lot of philanthropy work, I’m involved socially in my community and outreach programs and I have an amazing blended family, and so it felt like the right time to do something like this.”

We’re already seeing one of those “many different facets” with this Tatiana Trill character. Stay tuned to see if it’s a side you’ll actually like.
