Girl Bye: Tami Roman Has The Nerve To Say She’s Being Bullied By ‘BBW’ Viewers

May 9, 2012  |  

I wonder if anybody can get Dr. Sherry to venture over from We TV to VH1 and help Tami Roman work through her issues because this child–actually this 40-year-old woman—clearly has some sort of complex her current therapist has not been able to break through.

I’ve respected Tami’s crazy for a while, but what I can’t stand is that she expects other people to adjust to her crazy and approach her as such—which isn’t doable for people who are not actually crazy like she is. Her victim game has been evident in her arguments with Keisha on “Basketball Wives,” when she attacks the poor girl for not confronting her in the same ghetto way she wants to be, and now she has the nerve to say viewers of the show aren’t being respectful of her and her issues. She told Sister 2 Sister:

“Waking up to negativity on Twitter, negativity on Facebook, negativity on blogs, it’s emotionally and mentally draining, and things people say because they think they know you for watching you one hour of the week, it can weigh on your psyche.

“The way I’ve dealt with things over the course of my life comes from deep-routed issues. Everybody has to respect the fact that people are going to take the journey and cross bridges when they’re ready to do it. “People judge based on how they would handle a situation. They don’t take into consideration how a person was raised. Everybody’s going to handle things differently.”

Does she want to run that tape back and see how sympathetic she was not to the fact that Keisha wasn’t raised to call a woman a b**** and steal her purse because she wouldn’t cuss her out in public (sorry, spoiler)? Tami then proceeds to read off a list of things she should be telling herself when it comes to dealing with conflict in her little clique

“You don’t have to follow me on Twitter. You really don’t. You don’t have to like me on Facebook. You don’t have to do any of that. If you disagree with how I handle something or the way a moment went down, you can say that and you don’t have to call me a b****. You don’t have to call me a lowlife. You don’t have to call me a hood rat. You don’t have to call me out my name to get your point across.”

Interjection: Is this the same woman who addressed Keisha with b****, b****, and more b****? OK, just checking. Carry on.

“I can take any type of criticism as long as you’re respectful to me,” she continued, “but people have a tendency to chastise and belittle us and not really realizing they’re doing the [bullying].”

Mmmmkay Tami. If you say so.
