Basketball Wives Drama: Tami Roman’s Twitter Apology To Kesha Nichols

Insert "Psycho" Music

As most of you know, I allow myself one guilty pleasure reality series per television cycle. This season I’m watching VH1’s Basketball Wives. If you’ve been watching the show, you’ve seen all of the drama that Real World star Tami Roman seems to attract. At this point, she’s officially evolved into a full fledged bully. She has the entire cast afraid to say anything that could in any way be construed as negative toward her.

This week, new cast member, Kesha Nichols drew Tami’s ire leading to one of the most cringe worthy moments in the history of “Reality Television.” If you’re like me, you couldn’t help but be disappointed, disgusted, and ashamed of how Tami comported herself. Apparently, she too was disappointed in her actions, taking to Twitter to apologize, check out what she had to say below and let us know what you think.

Tami's Sorry Y'all



Comment(56)

  1. I’m sorry but a twitter sorry isn’t going to cut it. Tami really needs help. She had that girl so shook. Tami thinks she has the right to say what ever she wants about someone and they should just accept it but when the shoe is on the other foot it’s not right. I think the girl had every right to call security or the cops on Tami, you want to play crazy, then you need a taste of your own medicine. She needs to actually go on tv and apologize and make sure that it doesn’t happen again with anyone including Keshia. I like Tami but her attitude is trash sometimes.

    1. i agree. this was no apology to Kesha. a mass twitter "oh please dont reflect on my kids while i collect a paycheck to get another weave and a free trip out of the country" this is a messy, funky show

      1. I totally agree, a twitter "SORRY", is bad. Tami always say come to her like a woman…..SHE NEVER GET INFORMATION LIKE A WOMAN, EVELYN, SHANNIE AND HER GAVE THE DUMB B—-SUSAN TO TELL THEM EVERTHING. THE FIRST THING TAMI SAY "GIVE ME THE SCOOP". so how can she tell Keshia anything, or get mad with her, thats all the four of them do is rely on Susan the tell them everything so she can fight…Tami is a GHETTO MESS….AND SO IS SUSAN

    2. This is the absolute worse season of Basketball wives. When you know better you do better. There is NO EXCUSE for this ridiculous behavior. With this behavior I will be switching shows. Reality shows are a dime a dozen these days. I can find another guilty pleasure. Like WOW – RIDICULOUS. Grown women don't watch this garbage. We're raising kids ourselves. I be dag on if I let someone treat my child this way so there is now way I can continue to watch this show. It's a poor reflection of women – I don't care the color. This is garbage. Isn't Tami in her forties? When advertisers begin to back out VH1 is going to pay attention. That woman is Krazy with a capital K. Tami you have issues. All I can say is DAMN Boo. You messed up. They way Evelyn is going she is not far behind her. Bye Basketball Wives – get help ladies – #damnshame

    3. I hope Tami is is acting, because if she is not, then she is mentally unstable, volatile and should be put in a straight jacket and someone please throw away the key. Shawni, are you so desperate to have a show that you have to resort to women who are physically violent, verbally abusive and a vocabulary that does not rise above profanity? I applaud Keisha for not apologizing to get her purse and I wish she had locked Tami's up. Tami is not an alcoholic, she is CRAZY and please stop making excuses for her behavior. R-E-S-P-E-C-T a bully? She is not worth anyone's respect — her behavior is bottom-of-the-bucket, all-time-low — trash.

    4. I remember Tami back in the day on The Real World….I didn't like her smart-azz attitude then. I think after that black guy on there Mike or whatever his name was literally dragged her butt on the floor of the house she has been a bitter bit**. Even then, when he dragged her it was because she was being such a smart-azz to him for no good reason, and she talked mad sh** to him. She got real out of pocket and so she got what she had coming. I remember how embarrassed she was and how she tried to play it off and make light of the situation. But everybody knew he checked her azz real good and rightfully so. She had the nerve to get him put off the show too for that when she was in the wrong. Not saying I condone a man abusing a woman, but regardless u cannot talk to people any type of way and hit or abuse people and think there will be no consequences and repurcussions to your actions.

      1. Tami hasn't met her match yet on that show. If she is lucky she will be off of there before somebody else comes on that slaps the taste out her mouth and drags her butt across the floor again. I feel for her though if she has to face anybody like herself or worse. She will definitely get a taste of her own medicine.
        She should be ashamed of herself with regards to how she acts and she is a mother with young children. I feel for her kids more than anything. damn shame.

  2. I saw the first 10 minutes of tonight's episode, and couldn't watch anymore. Kesha reminds me a lot of myself. I don't deal with that urban, street rat sh*t, either. I'm quick to call the popo on fools. Or, I'm going to kill you defend myself to the full extent of the law, whichever comes first.

    Is this supposed to be an apology to Kesha, or just a general apology for being a basic a$$ rat? #IJS

  3. #chileplease I definitely don't believe that Tami's twitter apology was sincere. She probably got an email or saw the tweets regarding her atrocious behavior, and decided to respond. Note she did not mention Kesha directly on twitter =/ .

  4. Witch please!!! her grown ass needs to learn how to behave. Im pretty sure given the same scenario she'll do the same thing. She needs help…talmbout leave her kids out of it. She must be crazy…you represent your whole family out there in the streetz.
    I can't bliv she was talking about respect…who the hell needs her respect?? Mehn this episode had me so mad!! Ugh!!

  5. Aren't Evelyn and Tami, the worst-behaved cast members of this show, both raising teenage daughters? Also, do the other cast members realize that they're under NO obligation to tolerate these bullies? They don't need to get into any physical altercation with them. However, I'm sure they pay their taxes. They better make use of those police services. If Tami and Evelyn aren't old enough to figure out for themselves how unacceptable their behavior is, let the police do it for them.

  6. I'm truly disgusted with Tami's actions. I don't wish bad on anyone, but she isn't going to understand the ramifications of her actions, until this happens to one of her children. That was a half *ssed apology, and I have even less respect for her (and that back stabbing Suzi) than I did when she pulled that "he tried to rape me" crap on the Real World! On another note, the show needs to be cancelled or severely overhauled following this episode!

  7. I’m so done with these REG-U-LA bitches on this show(BBW)! They are so evil!!!!!!! How sad of them?! And I know its some hoes watching this show really trying to be them. Shame on you to agree with this behavior. Shame on you to be TEAM (fill on in the blank)! Learn to be about YOU. When you love yourself and respect life….YOU don’t have time to indulge in negative themes. They are so pretty but so ugly on the inside!! I’m turning the channel now. Shaunie…..YOU SHOULD BE SHAME OF YOURSELF!!!!! YOU CAUSED THIS!!!

  8. I’m a BBW fan but that was hard to watch. Tami has lived a rough life. Unfortunately ppl like her feel better when they can inflict pain on others like they have experienced in their life. It’s like a tranfer of emotions. She needs help.

    1. SmartFox all those girls need Jesus…..especially Tami and Evelyn. And it's so sad because I think both of them are very pretty women, but they have such ugly attitudes that it completely eradicates their beauty.
      The fact that they have daughters makes it so much worse. I wonder what their kids think of them.
      Both of them need serious anger management.

  9. Hey, there is nothing wrong with an apology. Who knows, maybe she apologized to keisha in private. We don't know. Either way, as long as she learns from it and corrects the behavior I'm all for it.

    1. IT IS NOT A REAL APOLOGY. SHE IS SELLING T-SHIRTS COMMEMORATING THE EVENT. The t-shirts say "YOU GOT 2 MINUTES", which is exactly what she said to Kesha when started in on the poor soul.
      SMH!!!!!!!

    2. sharay maybe that was a real apology, however, she needs to be a real woman and put on her big girl panties and apologize to that girls face for how she treated her and seek help.

  10. Tami so disgused me tonite she called kesha childish and if you asked tami was the one being childish & i cannot believe a black woman would disrespect another black woman it couldnt be me cuz tami would have got dropped and i would be done with them basketball wives & SUZIE is just as scared telling everything tryna be somebody friend shes dumb and evelyn and shaunie are standbyers didnt do nothing TO STOP THE VERBAL ABUSE !!!!!!!! and kesha i just got say gone head you did an awesome job you held your ground like a real woman !

    P.s. The only person that set a example for a young woman like me is KESHA

  11. Hurt people. Hurt other people. I was appalled at the level of evil and bullying from Tami. This chic needs some serious help. Shame on Evelyn and Shawni for being back stabbers and not having the guts to stand up for whats right. I hope they take this trash off of TV. Sincerely Disgusted

  12. Boooo!..Ur not sorry..U only apologize because of all the negative feedback u feel u are getting…Tami and Shaunie have sold their souls to the devil..PURE EVIL! I don't condone violence but if Tammi would have touched anything of mine she would have got dropped kick..she preys on the weak..which is all the girls on that show for even letting that ishhh go down like that! Money is the root to all evil but I would never physically or mentally torture someone just to get make a name for myself !…I stopped watching this show long ago..just a bunch of fuckery..I just tuned in because I heard about how bad this was..and I wish I had not. I will never watch this junk again, and a letter to the Exs don't sound so bad. My 18 yr old doesn"t even watch it because she feels it's disguising and degrading to women..we barely watch TV at all because of crap like this. And ppl please don't say Tammi's behavior gives "black women" a bad name..no it doesn't because the majority of black women do not behave like this..on or off TV…it just gives these fools a bad name!

  13. TAMI IS O.N.L.Y. APOLOGIZING BECAUSE IN RECENT WEEKS THE VIEWERS ARE MAD AT HER! REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY! SHE DOESN'T WANT TO HEAR US GIVE HER WHAT SHE'S BEEN DISHING OUT! SHE SAYS WHATEVER SHE WANTS AND HURT PEOPLE, THEN AND ONLY THEN BRINGS UP HER THERAPY SO SHE CAN CONTINUE GETTING HER VH1 CHECK AND AT THE SAME TIME STOP YOU ALL FROM LEAVING THE COMMENTS SHE DESERVES! SHE NEVER ATTACKS SHAUNIE WHO SIGNS HER CHECK! SHE NEVER ATTACKS EVELYN ANYMORE BECAUSE EVELYN WILL SUE HER! SHE IS TRYING TO PUT THE OKIE DOKE ON US BUT NO ONE HERE IS BELIEVING THIS BULLSHT FROM THIS OVER 40 WOMAN WHO WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET THAT CHECK! SHE IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO THE INSTITUTION OF RESPECTFUL BLACK WOMEN EVERYWHERE! CANCEL THIS SHOW AND SIGN THE BOYCOTT!!!! TAMI ISN'T LEAVING BECAUSE SHE WILL DO ANYTHING INCLUDE EMBARRASS HERSELF, HER MOM, HIS DAUGHTERS, HER FAMILY AND BLACK WOMEN AS A WHOLE, JUST TO GET THAT VH1 CHECK. I WISH SHE WOULD LEAVE AND THE SHOW WILL BE CANCELED! THEY CEMENT THE STEREOTYPE THAT BLACK PEOPLE ARE CORRUPT TRASH! THAT BLACK WOMEN ARE THE STEREOTYPED EVIL WOMEN! WE HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT AND THIS WOMAN MAKES US LOOK LIKE B#TCHES THAT NO ONE WANTS! OPRAH, ANGELA BASSET, MAYA ANGELOU, VANESSA WILLIAMS, THESE RE ALL ACCOMPLISHED WOMEN OF COLOR WHO BRING RESPECT TO US AS A PEOPLE BUT PEOPLE LIKE SHAUNIE, TAMI, EVELYN AND SUZIE MAKE US LOOK LIKE PIECES OF ISH! ENOUGH CANCEL THE SHOW HERE —- http://www.change.org/petitions/vh1-cancel-basket

    1. Im signing thisone..thanks Nicki, and I signed the one to boycott Evelyn's show with Ocho http://drgdss.me/JrDfQj …this is all garbage!! PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY ABUSING/TORTURING SOMEONE IS A HORRIBLE THING AND A CRIME ..ON OR OFF TV!!

    1. BOYCOTT TV PERIOD IF YOU ARE A BLACK PERSON BECAUSE 99.9% OF THE SHOWS COMMERCIALS, NEWS, VIDEOS ETC ARE NEGATIVE SAMBO BAFOON STEREO TYPES THAT CREATE HORRIFIC IMAGES IN THE MINDS OF HUMAN BEINGS ACROSS THE WORLD TAMMY IS A DROP IN THE BUCKET WHAT ABOUT THE SHOW "MEET THE BROWNS" "THE GAME" AND ALL THE OTHER DISGUSTING SHOWS AND SITCOMS THAT ARE REPRESENTING BLACK PEOPLE AS ANIMALS ALL OF IT IS MIND GARBAGE

  14. after the situation with Jen/Evelyn/Nia i called VH1 and some of the advertisers to protest. Shaunie along with the other producers are promoting violence and bullying on television with black on black crime. And a crime it is. A lady shouldnt be terrified to sit down, have a meal and conversation without being verbally and physically abused! I am really disgusted and disappointed with Shaunie ONeal. You can see her playing the situation for all its worth. Trust God dont like ugly and karma is a bitch!

  15. She's only half assed sorry because she didn't get support for her savagery. This heffais on TV acting like part of the viewing audience doesn't remember her lack of trash taking when that duvet was being pulled off of her. Did her ass go to bat for dude back then telling the producers he shouldn't be taken off the show? Naw. So why would she expect Kesha to not call the authorities on her? Who does she think she is to tell Kesha 1) what she can say 2) that she doesn't respect her?

    This tacky mess is also the same one who had her mouth wired on TV and had an abortion…on national TV. I had hoped she'd grown up. But at 40+ years old she's acting like a beast.

    Tami isn't mad at Kesha specifically. She's mad at what Kesha represents–a life easier than hers. And the other thing we need to wonder: How does she treat her own kids? What she did to Kesha was ABUSIVE. I wonder if she's as abusive to her own kids (who have no recourse). And Kenny? What did he endure having been married to her?

    Finally, the rest of those 'about this life' yamps are weak. Not nary one of them suggested they take Tami to a quiet place to cool down? Not nary one of them told her she was being a savage? Nobody? cus they were all scared. Women like Tami behave this way because they haven't had to deal with real adult consequences that get dished out in the real world. Have her ass spend some time with Diabla or Pretty Boy from Beyond Scared Straight and I bet she'll find some 'get right'.

    Last night was my last episode. I even told Tivo to stop recording it.

    1. EXCELLENT response. I feel sorry for Evelyn's & Tami's & Shaunie's daughters. Wait for the bullying to begin. wow.

  16. I was shocked at Tami's behavior before last night episode. I decided that I was not going to continue to give ratings to such a classless show. Tami and Evelyn are too grown to display such tasteless behavior. Tami talks about other people but when it comes to her you have to talk to her. Anybody new that tries to make the show presentable; Tami has been allow to run them off. Please grow up and realize what an embarrassment you are to yourself and your family. Apparently you have other issues that need to be address before you need to be on the air.

  17. Tami's behavior was a bit over the top however, it was incited by back-stabbing statements Kesha made about her. It is clear Kesha did not want to be accountable for her actions. Since she was bold enough to make remarks about Tami behind her back she should exhibit that same boldness in her face. Simply put Kesha did not have the fortitude to match her "behind-the-back-badness".

    1. Simply put Yvette,

      YOU REALLY AREN'T THAT SMART OR MATURE OF A WOMAN TO BE VALIDATING THE MALICIIOUS AND BULLY BEHAVIOR OF TAMI. . PERIOD.THE END.

    2. Yvette, did you look at the same show I looked at last night, because your comment is just as uneducated as Tammi acting the fool. No one and I mean no one should be made to feel threatened the way Keshia was last night by Tammi. Talking behind the back is not a crime however what Tammi did last night was a crime. Would you want someone to threaten you and take your property, ie phone? I think not or unless you are just like Tammi and think it is okay to bully. Bullying is a crime now and talking behind someone's back isn't. In the real world, attacking someone because they talked behind your back will get your @ss some time behind bars, and that is the truth. Feed into assault if you want to, and find out what the real world will do to you.

  18. Give the people what they want to see… a crew of decent looking african-american women, that make decent money, that somehow are, still, every bit of the slum that which they came from. It's hard to believe that you would have grown ass women in their 30's and 40's still running around playing hop-scotch as if they are in grade-school. Where is the classy in your hoop earrings, your line of lipgloss, or shoe store? If this is what money does to you, I would rather stay broke.

    Any apology/confession/i love you/will you marry me, professed on a social site… is a bunch of bullshit! I refuse to, once again, intertwine myself within the confrontations of hiding behind a cyber-wall. If you can't carry on real conversations or make face-to-face apologies to another human being, then what good are you in today's society?

  19. TAMMY BEHAVIOR ON THE SHOW IS NO DIFFERENT FROM SITCOMS LIKE "SINGLE LADIES" "MEET THE BROWNS" AND EVERY OTHER BLACK SHOW THAT IS DEGRADING THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND PERPETUATING STEREOTYPES BLACKS IN THE MEDIA ARE ALWAYS PRESENTED IN A NEGATIVE LIGHT LETS BE MAD AT ALL THE IGNORANT BEHAVIOR ON TV THAT SETS BLACKS BACK 400 PLUS YEARS PEOPLE ARE MENTALLY SLEEP A TYLER PERRY MOVIE HAS DONE MORE DAMAGE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY THAN TAMMY COULD EVER DO

  20. I haven't watched the show this season, since it's really became the "Evelyn vs. whomever doesn't like her this week" show. Plus it's disgusting the way bars/restaurants allow these broads to come in and destroy their property for the sake of saying that VH1 was a "client" of theirs. #swindle

    Re: Tami's apology, this is my thing; the show wrapped months ago. So if she really felt bad about how she treated Kesha and other flagrant that she did through the entire season, she could've made a general apology. I realize reality stars aren't allowed to talk about the upcoming season specifically. But Tami still could've prefaced the episode earlier yesterday by just issuing a simple apology. By her doing it as we're watching an incident (that again, happened months ago), it seemed disingenuous
    My recent post Failure Is A Way Of Life, So Accept It

  21. I like tami yes what she did was wrong I just hope she understand what she did and now she have to deal with the problem she put herself in .

  22. I didn't even watch this episode because the previews alone disgusted me. It's sad that "grown women" act this way. All I have to say is "karma is a b*tch." She'll get hers one way or another

  23. What a condescending apology if u dont care whether it is accepted y do it dripping with sarcasm she dont look like a Keisha but a Lisa how freakkin nastin can u b to another human being under the guise of wanting respect and keepin it real yeah we saw the real person and her therapy is really not being effective she needs a refund. That was one of the worst displays of character towards another human being that I have ever seen just horrible to treat another human being like that and had the girls purse in her suitcase how did she possible think any of this was justifiable.
    Disgusting behavior.
    so what everybody talks there is no code everyone does it at one time or another in the privacy of their home or to their friends we have all been there Tami is not the talk police she does it too on camera we r not children thats the way of the world grow up and furthermore she wasnt hurt by anything that was said and nothing warrants this behavior and no one surely deserves this inhumane behavior.

  24. Tammie you are just trashy as hell!!! Bitch I wish could been there for 2.5 seconds I would have kicked your ass it’s that simple.Your kids I feel so sorry for them because that don’t have a mother to look up to.Bitch you’re no better than the next.I Hope they kick your trashy ass to the crib.

  25. I don't condone anything that Tami does, I think she is childish, ghetto, and immature in so many ways. However, Kesha was asking for it. If you know that you were that afraid of Tami, why put yourself in the line of fire? Everyone knows good and well that Tami is a bully; she keeps the ratings high. If it was all love and smiley faces, no one would watch the show. Kesha knows what she got herself into when she signed the papers to be a cast member. My philosophy is, if you're going to talk mess, have the guts to back it up. On reality TV, you're subject to take the role of predator or prey; point blank period. What makes me most confused is why people confide in Suzie..they know that Suzie is a punk who runs back and tell everything, thats how she keeps herself in a good standing. Smh, but why are we complaining? It kept us watching.

  26. Tammy I liked you at first, but I will not continue to watch you and Evelyn act like crazy women, and bully other women because they said something about you. So you are going to go around fighting everyone who talks about you? If that is the case then you are going to be fighting all day every day, look around honey…we are all talking about you. You need to get it together, you are a poor example of what a lady should act like. What a poor example for the teenage girls in the charity you work with. This didn't start with Kesha, you have been terrible all season. You were also a part of the crew who put fish in the Kenya's room right??? What part of that is right?

  27. I cringed when Tami "gave" Kesha her purse back. It was devastating to see her make Kesha ask for her own purse back. Where did this whole snitching or "take your licks and keep it movin" mentality come from. Kesha had every right to report her bag stolen, not just to the hotel, but to the police too! Evelyn should have been arrested for throwing the wine bottle, and that other girl should have faced consequences for slapping Jennifer. I can't wait for Tami's explanation during the reunion, and I hope she stays off the TV screen because she has some serious issues.

  28. Tammi is a fool. Evelyn is a fool. Did the producers of BW think that black women are so low class and stupid that they would enjoy seeing other black women bully and beat each other? Shaunie probably thought she struck gold with all the violence. Black women aren't like they are showed on tv with actions by a few idiots. We are hardworking, respectful of ourselves and others. And we don't resort to violence over name calling. What kind of examples are Tammi and Evelyn setting for their daughters? Throwing bottles, walking barefoot on a table and threatening people with violence. I will never watch this show again. I use to watch for the fashion and friendship. Maybe, the show should just have Jennifer, Keisha, Royce, Mecha(?)- and I'm not even sure about Kenya-since took off her shoes to beat up Keisha. Black women have the world trying to say that we all have attitudes-we don't-we hold up and support the entire black race by our determination to succeed and support ourselves and our families. We don't want to or have time to act a fool.

  29. Dear Shaunie 1 question y didn’t u speak up and tell Tami to give Kesha’s purse back y didn’t u do the right thing u would’ve want some1 to do this for ur loved one or ur children it would have been ok bcause it was the right thing to do u want to come on here and talk about shopping and clothes and the weather as if nothing happened how can we feel that u r sincere about the upcoming changes for next season if u wont even face the issue we r not talking about watching it as a topic on the reunion ur thinking that will settle it all u must b one empty person if u think everything can b handled in this manner u must address this issue like u want us to continue watching and support ur show u have truly sold ur soul but all the money, expensive clothes and shoes cannot fix ur broken soul if u cannot face the messy environment that u have created it will b business as usual like when she attacked Meeka no one deserves this surely u r not that broken.
    Njoy ur devlish life cause VH1 truly owns ur soul and u 2 r a match made in hell.

    A person who is truely sorry would not still continue to collect profits from this incident http://tamiroman.spreadshirt.com/you-got-2-minute

    and look at the other disturbing categories not truely sorry its all an act for tv and to her loyal fans making money from bullying

  30. An apology is not enough. If it had been me, I would have challenged u. That was not necessary because she sis not say anything that critical for you to be acting that way. If it was me you would have had to hit me because i would have took my purse and dared you to hit me. I would had to go to the trunk and ask the camera man to turn the cameras off. You would have really regretted messing with me BITCH.

  31. In addition to what i have already said Suzie you kiss ass to be friends with these bitches. WHO NEEDS A FRIEND. FRIENDS RUN RABBITS AND BARK AT THE MOON. Evelyn I would have never apologized to you if I was Jennifer. U are a whore and a fucking golddigger, but it is a bout that money right.

  32. the world has enough bullies we see it in our schools at work in every day life to the crew of basketball wife u do not need to promote bulling on your show and as for the show producers shame on you

  33. After I initialpy left a comment I appesr to have clicked the -Notify
