You may know Tami Roman as the fiery star of VH1’s Basketball Wives, or perhaps you know her as the most recent cast addition to Halle Berry’s upcoming CBS sci-fi drama, Extant. But true (and older) fans of MTV’s long-running reality hit Real World will always identify Tami as one of the housemates from Real World: LA way back in 1993.

She’s come a long way since her showdown with roommate David. Since then, she’s had two children, starred in a hit reality show, and married (and divorced) NBA player Kenny Anderson. And Kenny himself had a past before Tami — he had a relationship with one of the ‘90s biggest female rappers.

During last Wednesday night’s March 19 episode of Real World: Ex-Plosion, Wetpaint Entertainment quizzed Viggle LIVE! users on whether they remembered which hip-hop star from that era was involved with Tami’s ex. Do you think they got it right?

Well, 24 percent did, at least. That is the percentage of voters that knew that Kenny was involved with Salt-n-Pepa’s DJ Spinderella back in the day (shoop!). Meanwhile, 44 percent thought the baller dated rapper Eve (who’s
engaged to her British millionaire), and 33 percent guessed the lucky lady to be Foxy Brown.

Before he was married to Tami, Kenny had a serious relationship with Deidre Roper, aka DJ Spin. It was so serious, in fact, that the two fathered a daughter together — who gets to be half-siblings with Kenny and Tami’s two children. What a small world!

Tune into Real World: Ex-Plosion on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
