VV: Now, Tia and Tamera is in a totally different category of reality shows such as Basketball Wives. How do you view those type of reality shows?
TM: I haven’t seen Basketball Wives, but I heard about it. I am a huge fan of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but I just think that Tamera and I have a different take on these reality shows. I remember when we were pitching our show to different networks, many of them didn’t want to pick it up because they felt like we didn’t have enough conflict. My sister and I were like, ‘We aren’t those type of people,’ so it’s all about us being positive role models. People always say it’s nice to see fresh, vibrant, funny women on television, and that’s my sister and I. That’s how our career has always been and we knew we weren’t going to change who we are for the show business, so it’s kind of something that has been accepted.
Did she just say she’s never seen “Basketball Wives”?? Girl stop, we know you been media-trained to death, but c’mon now!
