Tami Roman Explains How Basketball Wives Ruined Her And Shaunie O’Neal’s Friendship
Tami Roman’s career has been flourishing even with Basketball Wives in her rearview mirror. Tami Roman recently opened up about the demise of her and Shaunie O’Neal’s friendship.
It was clear during the last season of Basketball Wives that Tami was over the drama that came with being in the group of ladies and moved on to bigger and better things.
In fact, she announced just before the season began that it would be her last. Not only did she have a busy acting career but she had just married her new husband Reggie Youngblood.
Roman recently appeared on Married to Medicine’s Dr. Heavenly podcast where she was candid about where she and Shaunie stand.
‘I thought that Shaunie and I were real friends. I think that I put more weight and more value on the friendship than she actually was doing. From my standpoint, I really cared and respected Shaunie a lot, a great deal. And so the last two seasons made me feel like it wasn’t any reciprocity. You gotta acknowledge that and honor it. If people don’t f**k with you like that they just don’t f**k with you. No harm, no foul. But I just realized that it wasn’t that deep for her.’
She went on to explain how the show ruined her and O’Neal’s friendship and if she would return.
‘I liked my time on Basketball Wives. I enjoyed it, I think that in the past two seasons the dynamic of the show changed for me and it wasn’t fun to go to work. The cast changes or the cast additions just wasn’t an environment that I wanted to be in any longer. If they made cast changes, yeah, because I liked it. I liked most of the girls on there. But they’re not asking me and I’m not answering. They’re happy I’m gone and I’m happy to be gone.’
