John Salley Says Tami Roman Trumps Kim K. As A Reality Star
John Salley is probably one of the only people on the planet who was sad about the “Basketball Wives” reunion show being cancelled. During a recent interview with The Jasmine Brand, the retired NBA star dished on which burning questions he never got to ask the ladies, Evelyn Lozada’s pregnancy and his girl Tami Roman—whom he praises as the ultimate reality star.
“I thought the show [Basketball Wives] was cool,” said Salley. “But when my girl Tami got on the show, it took it to another level. I watch her as a professional reality television star and if anybody knows what I’m talking about, watch Tami. From ‘Real World’ to now, this chick has been the most entertaining and education I have ever seen in television—Tami Roman”
When asked if he thought she topped Kim Kardashian, the Brooklyn native made it clear that there’s no contest.
“Yeah [over Kim K.] because Kim Kardashian doesn’t really say anything—there’s her mom and the whole family. But when you deal with someone who actually knows how to bring you into their lives and how to keep you there—nobody but Tami Roman could do that.”
As for whether or not Tami deserves her own spin-off, John says absolutely!
“Yeah, I wanna see the Tami Roman… she and her daughters—I mean that life has to be the most interesting life, black white, or purple.”
He was also pretty excited to learn about Evelyn Lozada’s pregnancy, despite it being the cause of the reunion show taping being canceled.
“It’s part of the game, but I was really disappointed,” said John.
“But I’m happy for Evelyn,” he continued. “That’s my dog. When I saw she was pregnant and she’s smiling—I’m following her on Instagram. That’s my dog, so I’m just happy for her.”
