‘Basketball Wives’ Star Tami Roman Responds To Critics Of Her New Look — Photos

The only thing people should be saying is, "YASSSS Ms. Roman!"

"Basketball Wives" star, Tami Roman, is showing off a much slimmer physique these days, but some of her critics insist she is too skinny. The reality star took to Instagram early Thursday to clap back at her critics and reveal the reason behind her weight loss. 

The "Bonnet Chronicles" star told fans the true reason behind her thinner frame is due to diabetes.

Tami wrote, "I didn’t lose weight, I lost my willingness to die. DIABETES IS NO JOKE! I Detox, suppress my appetite and make better food choices. So enjoy yourself laughing, leaving negative comments & calling me a “crackhead”...but I have two beautiful daughters and I’m gon’ live for them by ANY means necessary. 💯 #BeBlessed #HealthyForMe."

Her supporters responded in the comments section of her post:

One follower wrote, "Good for you sis...body shaming goes both ways, people think only heavy people get shamed which isn’t true. I’ve also recently lost weight and was told I just stop before I look like I have cancer. Weight comments should be completely off limits regardless of whether someone is heavy or not. Health should be our #1 priority when it comes to our weight. I applaud your efforts!! You look absolutely gorgeous boo!!! @tamiroman."





A second follower remarked, "You look amazing! Let them talk.. That means you are doing something right! It’s when they stop talking you should worry! Strike that pose sister..Be Healthy and live!! I’m motivated.."


Roman began trying to lose weight after she was diagnosed with diabetes and she quit smoking. She noticed her weight gain and was shocked when she weighed herself and was 185 pounds. That was the point she decided to make a change. 


She discovered the weight loss pill, NV Clinical, and that helped her lose 7 pounds in just one week. She continued to use the product until she lost 30 pounds. Her weight loss journey was so successful that she even became the face of the company and starred in ads to promote the product.


Tami later admitted she was only able to get down to a size 10 or 12 with the help of the weight loss pill.

She revealed she had never taken her diabetes diagnosis seriously until she had an interesting chat with actress Halle Berry, who also had diabetes.

Roman revealed, "I was talking to Halle, and she said 'Tami, the truth of the matter is — you either wanna live or you wanna die. You can continue thinking what you think and doing what you’re doing, but you’re not going to be here long. And that like really hit home for me. So I changed up my whole diet and eating and trying to be healthy and live right, and now people say I’m too skinny. Now, I’m a bobble head."
The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they’ve got! #bethebestyou #liveyourbestlife Fit: @angelbrinks
