Tami Roman tells judge “millions will suffer” if ‘Basketball Wives’ is taken off the air

“Basketball Wives” cast member Tami Roman is being sued by a hair care products company for a breach of contract. The 40-year-old mother of 2 went before a judge this week to stop the company from disrupting the show’s shooting schedule, because, as she put it “millions of people,” will “suffer” if the show is taken off the air.

Additionally, one company has already pulled ad spots from the scripted show as the result of a petition created by Alexis M., who objects to the fake violence that saturates the show every week.

In an update on Tuesday, Alexis M. reports that Summer’s Eve has agreed to pull their ads from both “Basketball Wives” and the spin-off show “Eve and Ocho,” which premieres in September.

From Gossip On This:

Tami Roman — one of the stars of the hit VH1 reality show — is being sued by Creme de la Creme hair products on claims that she went against a contractual agreement, and failed to promote their hair products on the show, instead choosing to promote her own hair line.

The company has asked the Texas judge to put in a court order to stop VH1 from showing any segments where Tami promotes her hair line, instead of theirs.

However, according to court documents obtained by TMZ, Tami claims that the company didn’t pay her on time, thereby breaking any contract previously agreed upon.

Furthermore, Tami said that preventing the show from airing would affect “millions of people,” and the harm Creme de la Creme claims to be suffering “pales in comparison.”

She’s also asking the court to let the show air as is, and wants her name and likeness to be removed from the brand’s products, and she also wants the company to pay her court costs.

      Dear Tami,

      Though you say that millions of viewers will suffer, I am sorry to disappoint you with the fact that NO ONE would suffer… We would just look for another scripted reality show about somebody’s wives to keep us entertained… Sorry to disappoint you.

      I’m gonna sign the petition. I had enough of this show after Mondays episode. The show is totally pointless. It needs a new direction. Instead of showing women arguing about talking behind their backs (which they all do) why not focus on their business ventures. Jen has her cosmetics line, Evelyn has a cosmetics line also and a book coming out. Royce is acting and Tami just worked on a movie. They could focus on that instead of her bad attitude. And I still dont understand why they chose Kenya and Kesha. What do they bring to the show other than two new people to bully?

      Their behavior is not enough for me to want them to be canceled. I mean if you feel like they represent you than prove people wrong. It’s TV and that is what people do on TV. Yes I do agree that they are too old to be ‘acting’ like this but that is what it is ‘acting’. If you are a true reality star would you be trying to do acting gigs. Kate Gossling, Sweetie, or the Sister Wives have never gone on any auditions for acting roles because they are not actors.
      They are now mad because they thought that this behavior was gonna give the some longevity and it didn’t. They should have done like Jen and monopolized on it. So all this shopping has put a damper on Tami’s otherwise shallow bank account and now if the show is canceled she can’t recoop. Oh well!

      By far Jen is the smartest one. She took her 15mins of fame and moved on. Evelyn foolishness is causing her shoe store to close. Tammie fooliness is causing her to loose endorsements. Do these suppose to be grown women see the pattern? Everyone does not support bullying. The episode Monday was just sad the way Tammie went off on Kesha for coughing. Guess she got tired to being the suppose to be peace keeper. I think it is time to stop watching the madness

    • LADYTEA

      can’t stand Eve or Tammi, Tammi say’s where they from they don’t file police reports they handle it themselves, so why did you walk up in Eve’s she store when she said you were a “non muthafu-kin factor with court papers” voice shaking in all about how you going to sue her over tee shirts. and Eve you don’t like for people to talk about people who are less fortunate them, why cause Nia your girl with that horrible side swept wig. You talked about Tammi and her weave and clothes when she came to the show. my how easily they forget. I would love to sign the petition for these clowns to be removed from TV. and Shaunie is so phoney, all of a sudden you just have a stunned look when drama kicks off, in the background speechless, but alway’s pumping up the bullies with the whole “girl calm down don’t kill her, she dosen’t want any. you just as bad Shaunie.

    • pointhimout

      yeah they can take this off the air. the way they bullied that keisha chick in Tahiti was embarrassing. Tammie’s rant after one shot (on cam) was so random and ignorant. So mf what she said she was going to go off on you. She didn’t. If we all worried about who said what behind our backs, we’d all be outta jobs doing nothing. we all talk schit about people all the time. She kept the chick’s purse. shauni or eve didn’t step in.

      Scary ass Susie doesn’t like drama when it’s her phuckin ass receiving the backlash, but now she’s all smiles and just glad it’s not her. A b itch like tammie just needs a surprise ass whoopin. You know, that type ass whooopin u aint see coming when you bullied the wrong person? yeah, one of those.

      I can’t take these broads, including Royce and that fake ugly crying. Yo daddy thinks you’re a whore, own it cuz we damn sure do. Yo ass in/out of love with these dudes too quick. There’s no one on here I can stomach much right now. Entertain me by letting one of them get in Shaunie’s ass. she’s off limits cuz it’s her show? None of her bs drama airs ever.

    • Bigbadwolf

      Tami does know she signed an agreement right? She also knows that her weave looks better this year than last year, so give credit where it’s due.

    • LittleBigMouth

      My question is this: when she finally received payment, what did she do with that money? Did she give it back because she wasnt paid on time or did she keep it and spent it accordingly. All she has to do is give the money back I’m guessing, she ain’t that special that the brand will break their necks to have her promote them. I can’t stand her anymore, she really needs help, I genuinely mean that.
