Reality TV star Tami Roman stopped by The Wendy Williams Show this morning to talk about her future projects and her role on VH1’s Basketball Wives. During the interview, Williams was harsh in her assessment of Basketball Wives and Roman’s role on the show.
“We’re all in our 40s, we’re grown women,” William’s said. “I was really embarrassed for being a black woman, seeing your guys go at it on the show. “
Williams also mentioned that celebrities like Star Jones and Nicki Minaj have been outspoken about the negative portrayal of black women on Basketball Wives and have boycotted the show.
Roman became visibly emotional when asked how her teenage daughters handle the pressure of having a mother on Basketball Wives.
“For the first time I looked at my daughters and they weren’t really proud of their mom and they were embarrassed of me,” she said.
She went on to say that she plans to switch up her on-camera persona and stop fighting on future episodes of the show.
“It’s ridiculous that I’m on TV and I have a huge platform. I should be responsible, I should be accountable, and I really haven’t been honoring that.”
