In addition to push her own reality show, Basketball Wives star, Tami Roman, is also in the process of writing her very first relationships book. The mom of two opened up to Hot 97 about her interesting venture and who she hopes to reach in writing it.
“I have a book coming. It’s called ‘Mistress 101’ and it’s about women and their relationships and how they can keep them and what they should do and what they should be working on,” Tami said.
Though she says that she has never assumed the role of the mistress, Tami says she’s done some research.
“I’ve talked to mistresses.”
When met with skepticism by the station’s programming director, Ebro Darden, the reality star said that despite being divorced, she’s more than qualified to offer women advice on how to keep a man.
“Yes, I could [give advice]. I’ve been through a relationship and I thought I was the perfect mate, but clearly there were some things within me.”
She also addressed rumors that she’s hating on co-star Evelyn Lozada for also wanting a spin-off show.
“I have no differences with her. She’s doing what she needs to do like I am. She wants a spin-off. I think we all are at that point where we definitely feel like we can warrant that and carry a show. I don’t have any qualms with her about that. Do what you can do,” Tami stated.
Tami went on to drop the huge bomb that her ex-husband, Kenny Anderson, is still an absentee father.
“No [he doesn’t help with the girls]. My daughters are 19 and 17. I wish he would send a check for college because damn, it’s killing me. [He doesn’t help] because he doesn’t have to right now. He hasn’t paid child support for about 14 years so… You’re supposed to go to jail for that. We had to take him to court. We settled out of court. There’s a settlement that has not been paid yet, so we don’t know if we’re going to get that or not. I don’t talk to him, so I don’t know. I don’t know where he lives. [The kids] don’t [talk to him]. He came on the show the first season that I was on. That was my attempt at extending the olive branch. They went to see him shortly after taping and that was maybe four or five years ago and that was the one time they saw him.”
