‘Basketball Wives’ Star Tami Roman Just Made A Huge Announcement On Social Media


Tami Roman, the reality TV pro who hails from Season 1 of MTV’s hit reality show, The Real World and VH1’s Basketball Wives, may be getting her own show!

The Jasmine Brand says that she will star in The Beverly Trill Billies; a hilarious revival of the 1962 classic sitcom, The Beverly Hillbillies.


It centers on a poor family who strikes oil on their land and moves to the posh neighborhood of Beverly Hills, California.

Evidently, it will highlight her relationship with her longtime boyfriend, Reggie Youngblood and will feature their respective families. Sources say that filming is set to begin this summer.

Will you be tuning in? We definitely are! 

Her career is sure on the rise. Her “Bonnet Chronicles” began when the outspoken star started uploading clips of herself chiming in on hot topics around the celebrity realm online.

Well, Tami teamed up with TIDAL and now the series can be seen exclusively on the website, Rolling Out says. It was executive produced by Tami and Ernest Dukes. (The Bonnet Chronicles on TIDAL is a bi-weekly scripted series based on Tami’s unapologetic Instagram persona, “Petty Betty,” and her loved ones.)

In the first episode, Betty, who is a single mom to her son, Kenny, has fallen on difficult times. Both are forced to deal with their new life.

Her schedule is never empty, is it? Good for her. 

Count on #TamiRoman to tell you how she REALLY feels! #BasketballWives

Remember when she teared up about being stuck in front of the camera for ratchet reality tv recently?

"I’m successful at being the bad guy… I do a show with a lot of women who aren’t as necessarily supportive and empowering as I would like them to be. When people come into my space, challenging me, it really works me. It really sends me to the moon and sometimes I just don’t come back from it. And it’s wearing down on me emotionally."

"But I’m unhappy because people just see me one way. And that’s not to say that’s not who I am, but that’s not only me [...] I have been battling with what makes my lifestyle comfortable but that hasn’t actually been making me as a person on the inside comfortable."
When asked why she kept signing on for more episodes, she said, "I don’t want to not be able to provide for my children. But now when I try to go out and have other opportunities and other revenue streams, people don’t want that girl associated with their projects".

So, we hope that she is happier with everything these days—it certainly sounds as though she has more creative control. Plus, she might have a wedding to pay for soon! 

You excited about seeing more of Tami?
