Is Basketball Wife Tami Roman Being Pressured to Stir Up Drama?
We've heard this story before from erstwhile Real Housewives of Atlanta Deshawn Snow and Lisa Wu Hartwell; supposedly, Basketball Wives star Tami Roman is stirring up drama and picking fights with cast member Meeka Claxton just to keep her spot on the series.
"I’m just trying to keep my job, because when you don’t perform to their standards or what they feel they need for their show, then you’ll be written off," she says of VH1 and Basketball Wives' producers.
Lisa and Deshawn claimed that they, too, got the boot from Real Housewives of Atlanta because producers told them they were "too human" for the three-ring circus NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak, and the rest of the girls were staging. Deshawn cited failing to get riled up at the reunion show when she found out the other H'Wives were talking smack as the straw that broke the camel's back.
"I'm not the type to go 'television' and start acting crazy because somebody's talking about me," she told Essence in 2009.
Do you think Tami's going too far to give producers (and audiences) what they want to see?
