Tami Roman

Most people recognize Tami Roman as one of the Basketball Wives but she first stepped into the world of reality television nearly 20 years before that with MTV’s Real World. She met NBA player Kenny Anderson soon after starring on the groundbreaking show, and the couple married and had two children together. Following their divorce, Roman had no choice but to go on public assistance after Anderson stopped paying the court-ordered $8,500 a month in child support. Roman sued him and nearly nine years later, she was awarded a judgment of $800,000.
