Basketball Wives’ Tami Roman is not mincing words when it comes to newcomer cast mates Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell. In a special sit-down with MTV’s RapFix, the very opinionated Tami was asked about her thoughts on the new girls. After ignoring the topic of Kesha altogether–Tami had nothing nice to say so she won’t say anything at all (Ouch!)–Tami shares that she can somewhat tolerate Kenya over Kesha. It’s a lukewarm reception nonetheless. “She’s taking some getting used to,” the reality star tells MTV News in a new interview.
This comes on the heels of last week’s episode in which Kenya raised more than a few eyebrows when PG-13 YouTube videos of her were discovered by the girls. “Someone needs to tell her it’s not cute!” cast mate Suzie Ketcham laughed upon seeing Kenya’s “side project.” It seems that Kenya’s been practicing for a professional music career and upcoming music video shoot, so expect plenty more shots to be fired.
Tami has been very vocal when it comes to her cast mates this season. Last week, she dished to MTV about her trepidation over Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco’s relationship and pretty much marked it as a short-term affair. “You can’t tell a person who to fall in love with. I guess she’s just gonna take her chances and hope that this one will stand the test of time,” Roman said about the engaged duo. Tami implies that infidelities are going to be a major issue because of money and fame, something Tami herself faced when she was married to basketball player Kenny Anderson. For the women snagging a baller, Tami warns that you need “a strong mind and a thick skin.”
