Tami Roman vents frustrations with ‘BBW’ co-stars

    TamiRoman2_FPSSTami Roman is expecting her co-stars to rectify and retract some statements suggesting that she was hating on them and that she put Suzie Ketcham up to asking the cast newbie personal questions.

    Tami said she’d be using her words more than her fists on season 5, and that’s just what she did by going to her blog and posting a passionate video encouraging Suzie, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O’Neal to be more mindful of how they’re representing her.

    Viewers of the show likely recall seeing Tami talk to Suzie about newcomer Tasha Marbury and her husband’s past affair with a chef. While it may have seemed like Tami just wanted to pry in Tasha’s personal business, Tami clarified the instructions she really gave Suzie.

    “Yes, I did have the conversation with Suzie about getting information on Tasha and being armed with a response in case she tried to come for us, but A: I told Suzie before we went into that woman’s house, ‘do not bring up the chef. Don’t talk about it at all, just let the woman get to know us. Let us get to know her. Let’s just go on here and have a good ass dinner and leave it at that,’ but that is not what Suzie did,” said Tami who explained that the gossip about Tasha’s marriage was only supposed to be mentioned if needed.

    “I said use the information if she came for us, and that is not what was going on at that dinner,” she said. “So, the fact that you chose to open your big-ass mouth and bring that up at that woman’s dinner, that is not on me.”

    Tami said she fully expects Suzie to explain that to fans when the reunion show airs.

    “Let me tell you what you are gonna do. You gonna use that same big-ass mouth of yours at this reunion and let everybody know the truth and what I told you to do,” said Tami.

    The issue with Suzie isn’t the only thing that rubbed Tami the wrong way while she tuned in. She was also disappointed that Evelyn and Shaunie entertained the thought that she might be hatin’ on Evelyn’s PETA campaign.

    Evelyn_Shaunie“Let me just say this. I don’t hate on none of y’all bitches and y’all know that, and the truth of the matter is my mother is in the hospital and this is not a m@_#er^*ckin’ TV show. This is real life, and I was dealing with some real issues here with my other being in and out the hospital and living on her deathbed trying to recover, so you guys know why I was not at that party and to imply that I was hatin’ on Evelyn or anybody else is dead ass wrong,” said Tami.

    The veteran reality star didn’t shy away from the fact that she’s trying to improve her image since being labeled a bully after her portrayal on past seasons of the show. However, she explained that it’s difficult to shed that persona when her co-stars continue to live in the past, and that’s what Tami was attempting to explain to Shaunie on the show.

    “I’m working on myself now and that’s what matters to me, and I felt that there didn’t need to be a precursor. There didn’t need to be no introduction. Let Tami go up and meet this woman and let this woman meet me, and I still stand firmly on that,” said Tami who didn’t know anything about Shaunie imitating her until she watched it on air.

    “Now, I didn’t hear any of this, not one word of this and how I ‘toss my hair real slow’ and how I talk through my teeth. I didn’t hear none of that to me. That, yet, is another thing that we will address at the reunion,” she said.

    In the end, it seems Tami just wants a clean slate, so she can unveil the “new and improved” version.

    “At the end of the day, this is my character. This is my integrity that is being jeopardized, and I will not allow that,” she said. “I think that I should be afforded the opportunity to let people get to know me. I don’t want to keep living as the Tami Roman of old. I’m not saying that that Tami Roman does not exist ’cause even though I’m on a new block, that b!tc# is right around the corner… Coming into to a new situation, just once, just once, let somebody know me and me get to know them,” she said.
