Tami Roman has been appearing on reality TV for years now following a stint on The Real World and in a new interview, the Basketball Wives star makes it clear why she is perfect for the job. When discussing the new season of BBW, Tami throws some epic shade at Evelyn Lozada and absolutely destroys Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams.
In a chat with BET, Tami was asked who is the most irrelevant on Basketball Wives and considering the promotion VH1 has put into the new season, her answer shouldn’t surprise you. “I almost have to give that back to Evelyn because it’s like you came back! You talked about Basketball Wives, said you would never be on it, you have so much going on and you back,” says Tami. “So does that mean that you’ve now entered non-MFing status? Inquiring minds want to know.”
Evelyn famously told Tami on a previous season that she was a “non-mothaf**king factor” so it’s no shocker that she’s now throwing it right back at the source. After a dramatic last Miami-set season of the show, Evelyn left to star in her own OWN reality show Living Lozada which was cancelled after just one season.
Evelyn isn’t the only one on Tami’s radar, however. When asked which Real Housewife should join her show, Tami explains that Porsha fits the bill perfectly — and it’s one of the most amazing moments in reality TV history, if we’re being honest. “From Real Housewives of Atlanta it would probably be Porsha [Williams]. She has just enough petty, slutty, wannabe classy to be one of our new girls,” Tami says with a laugh. “I love you Porsha but that was — you know, my petty be at an all-time high sometimes.”
Check out Tami’s interview and epic shade throwing, below:
“Reality has changed for the worse, and what I mean by that is when we did the Real World in ’93 it was real in the sense that they moved us in a house, everything was full of cameras, but they caught our real day-to-day lives. We had jobs, they went to work with us.
Now reality TV is filled with a bunch of people who think they have to one up what somebody did last season and it may not even be their real emotions, but they’re looking for a moment.”

This interview is exactly why we love watching Tami so much. She knows exactly what viewers want when they’re watching a reality TV show and season after season, she continues to deliver. After throwing some shade at Evelyn and Porsha, we just happen to love her a little bit more.
