Tami defends her drama, are you buying it?
Tami Roman has been doing a serious publicity overhaul after an episode that showed her unleash her inner high school bully toward fellow cast member Keisha Nichols. BBW fans loyal to the brand even became disturbed by how a grown woman could simply be so, evil.
Forced off Twitter, due to much of the backlash she received for her comments and behavior, Roman has now reactivated her account and is singing a different tune then her mean girl image portrayed. Tami chats up her thoughts on the use of the word “bully,” her relationship with the other ladies and exactly what her man thinks of all the fawkery:
Since you started the show, you and Royce have been extremely close, but we barely see her this season with the other girls. What is it that makes you and Royce so cool?
TR: Because in all honesty from the minute I met Royce until today she’s been the same person. She was just real with me and I can always respect somebody that just comes 100%. I may not agree with everything you’re saying but if you just give me the real then I can respect that. I could tell her “Okay you know that s**t wasn’t right; I love you but that was some bulls**t.” And she can say the same to me and we can argue and curse each other out and call each other and be like “I love you are you still going to the movies?” (You know what mean?) Its that type of relationship so for me she’s the person that I’m closet too on and off the show.
Twitter is a such huge vehicle for celebrities to have a voice, and express how they truly feel about something without PR and other filters getting involved. What’s your take on celebrities using Twitter to air out their issues?
TR: Well that’s tricky, if I have a problem with somebody I like to take it directly to the source. Now the problem presents itself when I don’t know how to get to you. So for me if you’re on Twitter and I need to say something to you I might take it to Twitter. I try not to beef like cursing people out and all that type of stuff I try not to do that. I try to keep it professional and then handle it that way. You know I’ve had my conversations on Twitter with people at one time or another yes I have. (Laughs)
We wonder where Tami and that “realness” were when her BFF Royce was picking up her face after her dirty dog boo was cheating on her? “Friends”… how many us have them?
