    Flo Rida gets a DUI

    Flo Rida might want to consider laying "Low" for a while. According to TMZ.com, the rapper was arrested for drunk driving in Miami Beach on Thursday morning.

    Reportedly, Flo Rida was driving a $1.7 million Bugatti after leaving a birthday party when cops pulled him over for swerving in his lane. When authorities tried to administer a field sobriety test, he supposedly said, “Officer, I can’t do this. I don’t feel I can walk a straight line. I had a few drinks. Let’s try another test.”

    However, a breathalyzer test showed that Flo, who was driving on a suspended license, blew a .185. At more than twice the legal limit, the rapper was arrested for suspicion of DUI.

    Tami Roman explains herself

    Tami Roman sat down with WBLS radio host Egypt recently and explained why she often ends up in arguments on VH1’s “Basketball Wives.”

    “I’m just gonna always be me, and the thing is I’m gonna tell you how I feel. People can’t handle when you talk real to ’em; you know. So, they get defensive and then something flies out their mouth that I don’t like, and that’s when we get these altercations and confrontations,” she explained.

    Tami said that she decided to join the cast in season 2 to show viewers another side of being a basketball wife, since her story didn’t exactly have a happy ending.

    Watch.
