Basketball Wives head honchos Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman have been talking all about turning over new leaves over the course of the last year both on and off-screen, but the latest episode of season 5 is proof that not everyone is quick to practice what they preach.
On last night’s BBW episode, Evelyn and Tami found themselves in somewhat unfamiliar territory with each other when Tami took a shady gesture and comment made my Evelyn to the next level and got up in her face while the group was dining in a public restaurant. While the “old” Evelyn would have surely went at it with Tami, Ev remained seated and surprisingly silent in the face of Tami’s outburst.
Fast-forward to the end of yesterday’s episode, and after facing much backlash on Twitter, Tami took to her vlog to “explain” her side of the story. Check out an excerpt below:
“Everybody has a trigger and for me, putting your hand up…it’s not cool to me. It’s not gonna ever be cool to me And then you couple that with ‘B*tch?’ But let’s be clear, I didn’t punch her in her face. I didn’t do that. I was able to contain myself.
But yes, I did take that fork out that b*tch’s hand because you know she would pick up something and throw it and I was not gonna let her stab me and my damn hand. I sure wasn’t; so I took that weapon away.”
Although Ev and Shaunie certainly weren’t innocent parties in this particular situation, Evelyn keeping her cool in the face of foolishness for a change is definitely commendable. Hopefully we’ll start to see more of that type of reaction from Tami more often than not as the season continues.

So what’s your take on this, Bossip fam? Was Tami right to take precaution because Evelyn had an object in her hand given her history for throwing things?
