It definitely got real heated for Tami Roman earlier this week after she showed her butt during the last episode of ‘Basketball Wives’. On Monday night, fans of the show tweeted in disgust at Tami’s behavior including Nicki Minaj who tweeted, ‘So disturbed by this episode. SAD’. For days, Tami and her daughters Jazz and Lyric were bullied by online commenters on both twitter and facebook before Tami and her daughters deleted their twitter pages altogether.
Today Tami revealed that she deleted her twitter because she has a new opportunity and she is ready to put Basketball Wives behind her:
I deactivated my twitter for the time being because I have been blessed with a wonderful opportunity to work with phenomenal actors on a new television show. I didn’t want to wake up to the continual negativity from a mistake made over four months ago, which I have openly acknowledged and apologized for to overshadow the blessing of this moment. I plan to reactivate my twitter when a formal announcement has been made about this new opportunity with the hopes of putting BasketBall Wives behind me.
The whole situation is terribly sad! A week prior she said in an interview:
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.
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!tc#. 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.
I reached out to Tami after watching the last episode and one thing I know is that Tami regrets her behavior in a major way and vowed to do better! Everybody has that aha moment Tami’s moment was played out on TV with some editing! I expect great things from her and I’m willing to forgive her and move pass BBW!
