Life after Basketball Wives has been good to Tami Roman. She seems to be happily married to husband Reggie Youngblood, she is starring in the upcoming thriller Truth Be Told with Octavia Spencer, as well as a comedy called Prison Logic with Romany Malco and Regina Hall and some shows she’s producing with Mona Scott-Young. She’s booked and busy. However, that didn’t keep the 49-year-old actress from having to field questions about her former show at a recent event.

When Human Nature editor Chris Windham told her that she was missed during the reunion episodes, the star said, “Ooooh, I didn’t miss y’all.” In case you missed it, she was MIA at the reunion because of hives.

“I actually didn’t watch the reunion. I did not” she said. “I haven’t watched a lot of the show this season in general. I was out with my family, my husband and I see clips by way of social media, so I haven’t seen the full reunion, but I have seen clips.”

When she was asked if she had completely checked out after appearing in only a few episodes this season, she said, “I think I checked out about two years ago, but my contract said, b—h clock in. It is what is. I think that I just have run my course.”

She did have a message for co-stars who kept her name in their mouth (and share ugly rumors about her) even when she wasn’t anywhere to be found this past season.

“I don’t know why people continue to mention someone who is not present and available to be able to rebut or defend themselves. So for me, I would prefer they keep my name out of their mouth because I’ve gone on and I wish them all of the best and hopefully they do the same for me.”

But she believes without her, the show is in good hands with her friend Ogom “OG” Chijindu, who held her own against most of the women of the cast during the season. Tami said it made sense that having issues with OG was everyone’s storyline.

“You’ve got to have something,” she said. “When you legitimately don’t have anything going on then you’re going to try to find something to make it seem like you’ve got something going on. So they used my girl OG.”

When asked if she had any advice for her friend as the one to try and stand up to so much disrespect since Tami has been there, she said OG doesn’t need any of her recommendations because she’s proven that she can handle herself.

“I don’t think I need to give OG any advice because from the minute I met OG, even when I tried to jab and rim her and make her uncomfortable, she held her own,” she said. “She’s true to who she is and I think that’s authenticity. Being genuine is always going to outshine anything else going on.”

She considers OG to be her genuine friend, and she plans on having her friend’s back from behind the camera when it comes to Basketball Wives. She did, however, have an opinion she wanted to share on Evelyn Lozada’s failed restraining order against OG.

“Can you really get a restraining order when you’re the one who needs restraining?”

Tami made clear during her final appearance on the show this season that she felt it would be best for her to move on from the series and the negativity that can come with it.

“You know, I have grown a lot over the years, and I want my presence on television to be positive and uplifting,” she recently told PEOPLE. “I want real women with families who have ups and downs to be able to relate to me and feel inspired and empowered knowing they can push through anything.”
